On a spectacular weekend in Southwest Arizona, players enjoyed a sensational weekend of pro, junior, and skill division matches on Tucson’s best 3-Wall courts. Tournament host and director Abraham Montijo captured the open singes, Phoenix’s David Morales and David Munoz captured the open doubles, and Kena Byrd won the women’s singles.

The Argonauts travel team of 12 players competed against 250 collegiate handball players from around the world, finishing second in the team “A” division and eighth overall.“With most of our upperclassman unable to make the trip this year, we had a relatively young team competing,” stated UWF Handball Club founder Michael Morgan. “Of the 12 University of Florida players attending, five were freshman, three were sophomores, and four were juniors. Throughout the tournament each player improved by leaps and bounds and all of them are now more eager than ever to get back on the court and practice hard to see how much they can improve for next year.”
