New York City is now in sole possession of first place as idle Atlanta Team Handball slipped to 3rd in the rankings. The New York Athletic Club (the Club formerly known as Garden City) moved up a notch to second following their successful title at the West Point Tournament. Cal Heat finished the WTHC regular season unbeaten, but was not able to move up in the rankings.

Despite clearing up the team name confusion, and beating NYC at the West Point Tournament, NYAC failed to take the top spot due to being completely shut out of the Top 5 by West Region voter, Karl Laundy. Karl’s reasoning, and he’s entitled to his opinion, is that NYAC should not be in the Top 5 due to it’s all-star team makeup and non-participation in the NETHC.

The esteemed panel of voters consists of Andrew Washington, Christian Latulippe, Bogdan Pasat, and Karl Laundy.
