WPH UWF Argonauts Winter/Spring Update

Posted on Dec 1 2015 - 11:03am by DV

1The WPH sponsored University of West Florida Argonauts enjoyed an incredibly busy 2015 Fall/Winter semester, hosting the 2015 Argonauts Classic, attending the Bud Kelly Memorial Handball tournament in Chattanooga, TN, the Bear Bash in Springfield, MO and the Texas State Handball Championships in Austin, TX. The UWF Argonauts also held a WPH instructional clinic and exhibition with WPH Coaches and Race 4 Eight pros Luis and Daniel Cordova and twice-weekly handball clinics at the UWF Rec Center.

“We have had a great semester attending a number of great events and learning from some of the game’s best players,” revealed UWF Handball Team founder and ambassador Michael Morgan. “The bright spot of the semester was unquestionably our freshman class. The freshman have really come on strong, as they have attended tournaments, made major strides in their handball development and most importantly, all seem to have caught the handball bug and are eager for more next semester. At one of our larger events, we even introduced the UWF freshman player’s parents to the game and had them playing throughout the weekend.”

The WPH UWF Argonauts will be even busier in the 2016 Winter/Spring semester, as the Argonauts will host a Collegiate Nationals tune-up tournament in January, featuring the University of West Florida handball team and the University of Texas and Missouri State University handball teams, as each squad prepares for a full slate of spring tournaments. Following the Collegiate Nationals tune-up tournament in January, the Argonauts will head to the R48 V Stop #3 in New Orleans, the Collegiate Nationals, the Florida State Championships, the Southwest Regionals and potentially the Southeast Regionals.
