Brady Visits Hall of Fame, wins WPH R48Pro #2
bradyhof3
Paul Brady stopped by the Hall of Fame before winning the second stop of the WPH Pro season. 

TUCSON - The Handball Hall of Fame got a visit from a sure-fire future member this past week.  Nine-time USHA national four-wall champion Paul Brady was in Tucson for the WPH R48 and spent some time taking in the memorabilia and sights on North Tucson Blvd.  While Paul liked seeing all the pictures and stories of the players he knew, he was even more intrigued by the players at the top of the list for titles won.  "I heard Platak trained like a mad man, climbing stairs," Paul noted when he saw the chiseled physique of fellow nine-time winner Platak.  While Brady missed a title chance due to in injury, Paul marveled that Platak's career got interrupted by WWII when Joe served overseas.

The other "stopper" for Paul was when he learned that Robert Ripley of the "Ripley's Believe it or not" fame was a fellow New York AC member and would travel the country by train to compete in National AAU Handball tournaments representing the NYAC as their best player.  "Imagine going cross country by train to play in a tournament..."

Nine-time USHA 4-Wall Singles Champion Paul Brady

TUCSON - Playing on his home court, Luis Moreno was certain to avoid a repeat of the Simple Green final against Brady he played just two weeks before.  The WPH R48 Prop Stop #2 final packed all the drama inside two entertaining games as the two stars battled in front of a packed gallery and rolling cameras.  Brady was again victorious, winning 15-13, 15-11.  

"He's an incredible player, what can I say?"  said Moreno after the match.  "You have to play nearly-if not, perfect when you play him.  You make one mistake, it's over."

The two players battled fiercely in the first, coming to a 13-13 tie before Moreno double faulted to give Brady the serve.  Brady finished the game with two quick points.  

In the second game, Moreno struggled while Brady was rolling, up 11-0 and 14-2 serving for the match.  At this point, Moreno dug in to go on one of his serial scoring runs, ripping 9 straight points and giving the gallery life only down 11-14.  Brady stayed the course to gain the side out and capture match point.

2014 Simple Green US Open of Handball & 24th Naty Alvarado Classic

2014_sguso_sun_web-1_v1p2194Sunday at the 2014 US Open of Handball and 24th Naty Alvarado Classic saw the drama peak early in the day and stay at a tense level throughout as the top players in the game battled for the huge purses in all versions of the game.  Just two points into the men's open four-wall, Paul Brady's (at left) backswing was interrupted by Luis Moreno and some wondered whether Paul would be able to continue.  When Brady got back on the court he was not only OK physically, but devastating in the two-game rout.  Catriona Casey earned the women's title with her flawless play against Aisling Reilly.  Marcos Chavez and Victor Perez rallied from 6-17 in the first game to devastate Nikolai Nahorniak and Tyree Bastidas in the doubles.  Outside, Juan Santos suffered an ankle sprain while leading 20-19 in the first and hobbled the rest of the way Samzon Hernandez repeated in the three-wall.  Timbo Gonzalez also retained his one-wall crown over Andres Calle.  The final match of the day saw Manny Sanchez and Raul Calvillo win a tiebreaker of the big ball three-wall big ball title.

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!
 
2014 USHA National Three-Wall Championships

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.
