Jr Singles at the Icebreaker

Junior WPH Highlighting ‘Carl Hayden Junior Handball’ 

World Players of Handball-Junior Press, Tucson, Arizona – December 15, 2022

Coach Chris Hogan drove six juniors from Phoenix, Arizona, to the Icebreaker at Tucson’s Clark Park. The junior players competed in a round robin singles bracket, while having the opportunity to watch the best players in the world on the adjacent Clark Park courts.

Carl Hayden’s number one player, Heriberto Medina, finished undefeated in the six-player round robin, with Chris Ruiz and Brian Castillo taking second and third, respectively. Medina has won several tournaments at Carl Hayden and won his first tournament outside of Phoenix at the R48 Icebreaker JR Singles.

“We are so grateful for coaches and ambassadors like Coach Chris who tirelessly promote and grow the game,” stated the WPH’s David Fink. “We are so proud of Clark Park and we are thrilled to host junior players who we hope will be inspired to play our great game for many years.”

“The kids had a great time playing and watching and now want to transition from playing big ball to small ball after watching the pros,” stated Coach Hogan. 

Thank you to Coach Chris Hogan for giving back and growing the game every day at Carl Hayden High School.
