Handball discusses ease of sport for new people

President of the Handball Club Angela Snow encourages students to join as she discusses the year’s accomplishments.

She became president after last spring, but will not be the president after this year, due to graduating.

Snow said her first introduction to the sport was the handball physical activity class.

"I immediately fell in love with how unique and challenging the game is and began practicing outside of class with some friends I made in class," Snow said.

During her first year in the club, Snow was able to travel with the team to Austin, Missouri and Oregon.

"We compete at each tournament as an individual representative of Angelo State, and have the opportunity to win our individual division or bracket, unless we are competing in doubles, where two people can win a title," Snow said.

In the past year, they have had multiple consolation championships at the Austin tournament and a runner-up title for the Women’s Team in Division A at the 65th USHA National Collegiate Championships.

At the collegiate tournament, Corinna Mendez was awarded an All-American title and finished in the top 16 at the tournament.

"My favorite thing about being part of the Handball Club is having the opportunity to travel as a representative of ASU and compete in such a unique sport," Snow said. "The handball community is like a family, where each school tends to keep in touch throughout the year to stay current on tournament opportunities and team updates."

By joining the club, she made friendships that will surpass her time here and learned a sport that she can take with her wherever she goes.

"We are always looking for new members of the club, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve never played or never even heard of the sport," Snow said. "Almost every single member of the club, since the time of the club’s formation, began with zero knowledge of the game before stepping foot on the court."
