Phoenix, AZ, WPH Press, 8/18/19- Six members of Phoenix’s Carl Hayden High School handball team traveled 370 miles west to Venice Beach to compete in the July 17-21, 2019 USHA National Junior 3-Wall Championships. Recent Carl Hayden graduate Rodrigo Silva advanced to the semifinals of the 19-and-under singles, as well as the doubles with Chris Cedeno, earning Rodrigo MVP honors for Carl Hayden.

“Our kids had an opportunity to meet and take pictures with 3-Wall national champion Sean Lenning, what a thrill,” boasted Carl Hayden handball team head coach Chris Hogan. “Our Club would like to thank the USHA, especially Mr. Krueger, for hosting a wonderful event and experience for our students. Carl Hayden Falcon Family, we hope you will continue to support and encourage our students to become the best academic students, and most of all to participate in our wonderful sport of handball!”

Carl Hayden’s high school team has enjoyed numerous tournaments in Phoenix and Tucson, constructing a “Wall of Fame” in the school to commemorate a number of their handball highlights from the past year. “Coach Hogan has been an incredibly enthusiastic and positive role model to so many high school handball players at Carl Hayden High School,” stated WPH Development Director David Fink. “From holding weekly handball practices to driving the team hundreds of miles to attend clinics and tournaments, Coach Hogan has truly become of the game’s great leaders and ambassadors. Thank you Coach Hogan!”
