We have just concluded the inaugural season of the Florida Racquetball Collegiate Challenge Cup Series and it was a great success. We had 7 different schools participating at 4 unique events at 4 different on-campus venues. Each event had between 20 and 40 collegiate participants which indicates that there is definite grass roots interest on college campuses in Florida for playing and competing in racquetball events. Kudos go out to Alain Pujolar at UM, Brad Knudsen at UF, Chris Young at USF, Zach Heng at FSU, and Dan Lerow at FSU for both their participation and ongoing support in making these events successful. Another thank you to Sal Perconti and Wilson Racquetball for supplying balls for the most recent FSU event.
What about the results? Congratulations go out to the University of Florida and Team Captain Brad Knudsen for winning the Florida Collegiate Chalenge Cup for the 2009-2010 season. In a much closer season points battle than expected due to the great turnout by FSU at the recent event there, the final standings are:
- UF - 168 points
- FSU- 137 points
- UM- 64 points
- USF- 31 points
- Palm Beach Atlantic- 4 points
- Polk State - 4 points
- North Florida - 2 points
A number of these players are heading out to Missouri in a few weeks to represent their schools at the Intercollegiate Championships. Please wish them great success.
Thanks again to everyone who helped make the 2009-2010 season such a great first season and we are looking forward to making next year even better.
