About the Air Force Team Challenge
Long Beach State is one of four teams competing in the Air Force Team Challenge. The Cadet Fieldhouse will host the likes of Grand Canyon, Stephen F. Austin, Long Beach State as well as the Air Force Academy.

The Beach are sending a total of 48 student-athletes to compete at the Challenge with 32 on the women’s side and 16 men.

Looking Ahead
With only two meets before the MPSF Championships in late February, the Beach is looking to post top marks right away. The 49ers have a limited number of chances to achieve the numbers they will need in order to advance with the NCAA Indoor Championships just one month away.

Up Next
Long Beach State returns to action next week at the Don Kirby Elite meet hosted by New Mexico on Feb. 10 and 11 in Albuquerque, N.M. This is Beach’s last tune up before the MPSF Indoor Championships on Feb. 24 and 25.
