The matches have just concluded, the results are in, and our two Colorado players performed wonderfully!
Alex Ibarra (19 and Under) - Advanced to the quarterfinals in singles. Finished second in the doubles, losing in a tiebreaker.
Jon Gutierrez (13 and Under) - Finished second in the singles. Finished second in the doubles, losing in a tiebreaker.
I am so proud of both players. They played their hearts out and represented Colorado well. As well as I can recall, Jon's singles finals appearance is the farthest any Colorado player has ever advanced in the USHA Juniors singles division tournaments.
For the year Alex has a 3 Wall Juniors doubles championship and 4 Wall doubles runner-up. His doubles success is unmatched in Colorado Juniors handball.
On behalf of these lads, thanks to all the contributors to the National Juniors Scholarship fund, and special thanks to all those who have coached.
The 2012 CHA Fall Traveling League came to a fantastic end, with the final position day held on Dec 15th. In total, 10 teams played competitive handball on 9 different Wednesday nights between September 26th and December 5th, skipping only Halloween and the day before Thanksgiving. This year the league expanded the number of teams to provide an additional team at the CAC Monaco club. Each night there were singles and doubles matches in the Open, A, and 2 Contenders levels for a total of 8 matches for each pair of teams.
With 10 teams competing for the coveted Stanley's Cup trophy, only the top 4 teams competed on Position Day for the trophy. The winner of the league was determined only by the matches won on Position Day - but had there been a tie, the first tie-breaker would have been the heads-up tally during the league.
