Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 11/3/19- The WPH Memorial Committee was thrilled to present Pete Papathemetrios with the Memorial Sportsmanship Award and Matt Goode with the Memorial Volunteer of the Year on Sunday at The Memorial. “Pete had an outstanding weekend of handball on and off the court,” stated Memorial tournament director Scott Cleveland. “When Pete wasn’t playing, he was refereeing, cleaning the courts, and doing whatever he could do help the tournament. Matt picked up trophies and helped run the junior singles tournament, among other tasks throughout tournament week. We could not be more excited to recognize Pete and Matt for their outstanding contributions to this year’s event.”

“This means so much to me,” stated Papathemetrios. “I’ve been traveling to just about all of the WPH events for about two years and gradually improving. To be recognized for helping the WPH, who does so much for our game, is a huge thrill.”

“This is just awesome,” barked “Snakeman” Goode. “I’m just so happy to be a part of this great tournament and to help the WPH in any way I can. Thanks to the WPH for all they do.”
