Boys all the draws are below for this weekend.  Good Luck to one and all.

St Louis Brackets

Hall of Fame – Wanted all of you to know that GARY SOWELL will be inducted this fall (2015) into the Missouri Valley College Football Hall of Fame.   Gary played Strong Safety @ MVC and was a tenacious competitor receiving All American, All District and All Conference honors while he was @ MVC.  So while this is a Mo State Handball Hall of Fame weekend Gary Sowell being one of us I wanted all of you to have the opportunity to congratulate Gary on this well deserved accomplishment.

Have fun this weekend and see you boys in St. Louis

Collegiate Nationals results

From Jake Esser –

“All boys did well. 

In the qualifying rounds, Sam won his first, then lost a tough match to an Irish kid 19 & 18 and missed qualifying for the Open (top 16 out of 160).  That put him in the A division which is where Max Langmack qualified as well.  Unfortunately the two had to play each other in the semi-finals which was a heck of match with Sam winning an 11-10 tiebreaker.  He played another Irish kid for the finals and lost 6 & 16.

After qualifying rounds, both Alex Birge and Matt Vollink qualified for the B division.  Matt then lost a tough tiebreaker his first round while Alex lost in the quarter-finals. 

Alex/Matt made the quarter-finals in A Doubles while Sam/Max lost in the first round of the Open Doubles.

Missouri State took 4th in the Mens, 3rd in the Womens and coming in 2nd to Lake Forest for the overall title.

A proud parent moment – Sam won one of the two Sportsmanship awards that were given out to the Men participants.”

Congrats to Mo State and the posse
