Boys I just received a note from Dave Mc Dowell below. Vic is a good man and deserves our thoughts and prayers.
Vic Gallardo who I played with for several years at the KCK Y is not doing well. He has lost considerable weight-down to 138 pounds and has lost use of his left leg. He is confined to a wheel chair. He is going to KU Med and they can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with him. He continues to make court reservations for the rest of us so he can stay connected to handball. We should include him in our prayers.
Jim Cook – “Cookie” has a set back and had to return to St. Lukes
Thursday, April 30th we will have the finals for the remaining matches of each bracket in the commish tournament. See the below bracket for what is left. If you cannot attend next Thursday, please work with your opponent to schedule an alternate date/time to play your match.
We will also award team Skelly/Herbig with their regular season team trophy (it’s cool!) that they will keep until there is a new champ. We will also award the individual players in each class that had a stellar season…as voted on by the captains of each team.
Boys all the draws are below for this weekend. Good Luck to one and all.
