2014 Grand National Series - Bastidas & Daskalakis Repeat
Tyree Bastidas                                      Danielle Daskalakis  
By Glenn T. Hall
         REPEAT!!!!  Danielle Daskalakas and Tyree Bastidas were the best all-around performers again in 2014. You may recall that they were our first winners in 2013 and now they did it again. Danielle (100 points) had a much closer battle with Tracy Davis so close behind (96 points) as the women's runner-up again. Tracy was just 6 points behind Danielle going into the Simple Green US Open at Los Caballeros this past weekend. Tracy was able to get closer but by just two points. Sandy Ng garnered third place (40 points), and was seriously challenged by Na Liu (38) and Melissa Sky (37) for third place
     In the Men's, Tyree again finished well ahead of the field (79 points), while Timbo Gonzalez improved his standing over 2013's ninth-place finish by achieving 3rd place for 2014 with 53 points. 2013 runner-up Nikolai Nahorniak, finished second again scoring 56 points.  Timbo and Nikolai will be gunning to unseat Tyree in 2015. Jurell Bastidas finished fourth with 47 points.  It seems that in our era, the top all-around players continue to outperform so many great athletes. But they also take the time to attend and show the rest of us their skills, much to our delight. All of our contestants can review their final standings by HERE.
     Congratulations to the 2014 top finishers in the Grand National Series!

Nahorniak sets up for a shot in Men's Open Doubles action. 

MAUMEE, Ohio - Nik Nahorniak steps in for a shot in the Men's Open Doubles final on  Monday.  Braulio Ruiz (back court) and Armando Ortiz (front) won their first USHA 3-Wall National Open Double in two games, 21-13, 21-7.

On Sunday, Sean Lenning put on a spectacular show in the Men's Open Singles final defeating Tyree Bastidas in two games, 21-7, 21-11.  Lenning's display of deep kills, crack serves provided fans a window into why he's been one of the most dominant 3-Wall players in the past decade.  Bastidas' athleticism was neutralized as Lenning put the pressure on early and never let up throughout each game.  

In women's action, Tracy Davis slammed the Women's Open divisions at the 64th USHA National Three-Wall Championships.

Davis looked sharp with an unbeatable serve and devastating power over Megan Dorneker in two games, 21-14, 21-12.  Davis then teamed with Na Liu to win the Women's Doubles over Hillary Rushe and Carly Stickles in two games, 21-11, 21-10.

The Fred & Abe Show offers instruction for Handball Programs

By Fred Lewis

GOODYEAR, Ariz. - The Fred and Abe Show premiered at Lifetime Fitness over the weekend.   As one of the initiatives of the USHA's newly created President's Club, Abraham Montijo and I will attempt to educate and influence "Pied Pipers" like us in the art of developing and sustaining junior handball programs.

Junior members of the Fred Lewis Foundation accompanied us on this venture. They were extremely helpful in providing the Phoenix kids with coaching techniques as well as demonstrating proper form and body positioning when hitting different shots. We spent two hours teaching fundamentals, such as how to hit overhand, sidearm and underhand, serving and back-wall technique.  Both big balls and small balls were used to demonstrate and play. Near the end of the session one of the observing parents decided to join in and had a great time playing with his son.  All the players seemed to have fun and determined to continue playing.

Fred Lewis works with one of the junior participants.

Phoenix has a rich handball history like many cities in America. Because of club closures, existing players are scattered throughout the metropolitan area. I would like to challenge those players to unite and get behind Sam Ortega with their support. Money and volunteering time will insure that more young players will be introduced to the game and as a result handball will grow.      

We have had a number of inquiries about bringing the "Show" to different cities, including New York and Los Angeles.  These are the two largest population centers in the country that potentially have the most "untapped" handball talent. We hope to report positive outcomes after we visit these two great cities. If you meet all the criteria listed below, you can submit a request for The Fred & Abe Show to visit your club or school.  

Eligibility:

1.    Individuals must have access to handball facilities.
2.    Must have the support and backing of adult handball players in the community.
3.    Must have access to junior participants.

Tyree Bastidas repeated in the men's Open singles, defeating his brother Jurell in two close games.   Bastidas also just missed a slam, coming in second in the doubles with his brother Jurell.  The Bastidas brothers raced to a 15-1 lead in the first game but found themselves down 19-18 to Michael Schneider and William Polanco (both setting up for a return above).  Jurell closed out the first with an ace for the win.  In the second, Polanco and Schneider took charge from 13-12 to win 21-12 and held the momentum through the breaker for an 11-2 title win.

 

Eugene Lau pulled off a rare slam, taking the B and A singles on Sat.  Richard Mascia won his first national title, taking the 50 singles while Milton Jones is back in the winner's circle in the 40s. Joe Agosto won his 10th singles title on Saturday but fell short in the doubles final on Sunday.

Bill Malyakas and Ron Frisina won their first national titles in the 60 doubles on Sunday.  "It feels real good," Ron said.

Sal Cataudella and Steve Kraft earned a tough win in the 65s.George Figueroa and Tony Roberts took the 40s in an open-level final over Pete Pellegrini and Paul Lonergan.
