2014 Team Handball Nationals in Reno,NV

June 3, 2014



Both the Inter men and women traveled to Reno, Nevada to compete in the 2014 USA National Championships.  The women’s team, defending champions and heavy favorites, played well all weekend but struggled offensively in the final against Dynamo from Colorado.  They came home with a silver medal and plans to set things “right” next year.

The Inter men were ones to watch all weekend.  They rose to the occasion ending three tough games in a tie: most notably against the defending and once-again champions, NYAC.  Unfortunately, that game was the semi-final and could not end in a tie so it went to overtime  and then a sudden-death shoot-out in which NYAC came out on top.  After that emotional roller-coaster of a game, Chicago wasn’t able to bounce back against the Army team and finished 4th in the Elite Division.

It was a fantastic weekend of handball and Chicago Inter represented themselves very well.  We are looking forward to the 2014-2015 season and our upcoming beach tournament on June 28th!
