The deadline is fast approaching for the St. Louis singles tournament. Please get your entry in and represent the KCAC. Should be a great one this year as our beloved Max Gaither will be inducted into the Missouri Handball Hall of Fame.
The 2017 USHA Masters Singles will be hosted by our friends at the Denver Athletic Club. It sounds like an exciting event so please attend if you can
See you in Des Moines the weekend of April 22nd for the Tallcorn handball tournament. This is a great event put on by our friends from the Des Moines Hinder Club. The tournament is at the Wellmark YMCA in downtown Des Moines. The flier is attached to the calendar on our site and you can learn more at the tournament site here.
It comes down to Herbig’s Heroes vs Cobra for the league championship. They will play all feature matches next Thursday on the cafe courts. Come out and watch it go down, it should be a great matchup. The rest of the matchups are below. Please check the court sheet for start times of all matches.
For this coming league night, this is the order of the captain’s matches:
- Cates vs Pfannenstiel 5pm
- Herbig vs Orel 5pm-6pm
- R.Scherzer vs Storm 6pm
- N.Scherzer vs Meagher 6pm-7pm
If you play for the above captain, your start time will be that unless told otherwise. Good luck to everyone this week.
It is on the handball calendar, but please save your weekend of June 15th – 18th for the annual Nasty KC 3 Wall handball tournament.
Congratulations to our division winners and runner ups:
- Quigley division champion Paul Pfannenstiel’s team The Douchebags
- 2nd place finisher Tony Orel’s team Moral Orels
- Quirk division champion Chris Herbig’s team Herbig’s Heroes
- 2nd place finisher Danny Cates’ team Cobra
These teams will compete for the league championship. The 2nd place team of each division will play against the Division champ. So this Thursday The Douchebags will play against Cobra, and Herbig’s Heroes will play against Moral Orels.
The remaining teams will play in a dropdown bracket as well. Please see the brackets below for the complete matchups. Match times for next Thursday will be updated soon.
With only 2 weeks remaining, the league race to the playoffs is getting exciting. In the Quigley Division Team Killshot managed by Nick and The Rebels managed by Ron have both been mathematically eliminated from contending for the championship. Nick’s team is 12 games back on the 2nd playoff spot, so even winning his final 10 games and Cates’ Cobra losing all would still finish 2 back. The Rebels are only 10 back and could force a tie-breaker, but will lose that TB based on a losing record of 4-6 in head-to-head with Cobra. That means that Herbig’s Heroes and Cobra have punched their ticket to the postseason, but the division is still up for grabs. Keep an eye on this coming week 14 as these two teams play each other. It will likely settle who wins the division and could very well be a preview of the Championship.
In the Quirk division, The Stormtroopers are still barely alive in the Quigley division after a 5-0 performance last night. They are 7 games back on the remaining playoff spot and will nearly need to win all 10 games remaining to have a chance. After that it is a 3 team toss up for first and second place. The Douchebags made a leap with a big 4-1 performance over Moral Orels, so they are currently in the drivers seat with a very strong chance of winning the division. But that leaves Team Dynamite and Moral Orels tied for 2nd place and playing for the final post season spot.
Good luck to those still fighting, and to those who have been knocked out, don’t leave yet. We will be playing for all the way down to 8th place for a very special trophy.
This is your reminder to enter for the Missouri State Doubles handball tournament. My personal favorite tournament, this one is perfect for KC handballers looking for a weekend out of town. Great competition, the best indoor facility in the country, and exceptional dudes…except for Bozzay. I’m kidding of course.
How flattering. We’re a simple website where we post handball news to about 150 guys in one city and someone thought it was valuable enough to hack us and place a bunch of random stuff on our site. Sooo, yeah. Good talk
