Philadelphia’s Carlos Velez overcame Western PA’s Jay Cattron in the semifinals in an 11-7 tiebreaker, while Maryland’s Shane Anderson defeated Velez’s Philadelphia comrade Ben Cruz in an 11-5 tiebreaker in the other semifinal.

Velez dominated the final, holding Anderson to just 15 points in two games to claim the PA State title.

“Great time had by all and a lot of money raised for the Hope in Handball junior development handball program,” stated Cattron.
