  • Inter Ladies Add Another Gold to Their Collection

    The Inter ladies rallied back in the morning game to defeat Carolina to take first place in the 4th annual Michael Lipov Memorial Cup. Inter newcomer, Camilla Andersen, was voted MVP, with Julia Taylor from Carolina the tournament's top scorer and Urszula Pawka from New Jersey, the most valuable goalie.

    On the Men's side, NYAC secured first place in the fourth annual Michael Lipov Memorial Cup by defeating Moscow. Minnesota Team Handball narrowly edged out the hosts, Chicago Inter, to capture third place. Individual awards went to top scorer Ethan Pickett (Chicago Inter), MVP Vladislav Kalarash and Goalie of the tournament Danny Caparelli.
