CO players in Venice Beach 3 Wall Junior Nationals held July 18-21, 2019


Jon Gutierrez capped off a great USHA Juniors career in splendid fashion in Venice Beach at the Junior 3 Wall Nationals.  He won the 19 and Under Doubles with his partner, Luis Mendez.  In the 19 and Under Singles, Jon defeated his doubles Partner in a 2 hour, knock down drag out with an 11-7 tiebreaker win to complete the 'slam'.  Jon leaves the Juniors Division with 6 national championships and 5 second place finishes over 7 years of Juniors play.

His 10 year old brother, Eliseo, playing in his first national event, finished fourth place in the 11 and Under Big Ball Singles.  An excellent showing for this first timer.  We hope to see alot more of Eliseo.

Costigan Youth Handball and the CHA congratulates Jon and Eliseo for a job well done and representing Colorado handball in grand fashion.

Submit your handball news items
Consider this your chance to get your handball related event, tourney results, or news items published on the most popular handball web site in the Rocky Mountain Region.  Just send an email with your photos, comments, news, or event details to - we will make room available for all submissions made in good faith - it is entirely free, you don't have to pay a cent.

Also note that if you are a dues paying member in the CHA (which automatically includes *everyone* who played in the 2012 fall traveling league) - you can submit a sky-scraper formatted ad and it will be rotated in to page views on our home page at no additional cost to you.  Several members take advantage of this - you can see their ads along the right side by scrolling down the page.  Sky-scraper format is 120 pixels wide by 600 pixels high - enough to grab serious attention from our site visitors.  And it is a proven fact that handball players prefer to do business with other handball players before any unknown business entity, so it pays to get your business recognized.  Just send your ad content to the same email noted above.  - (published here on Sunday, April 14, 2013)
