US National Team Players Match Up Against Each Other in France

In what might well be a USA Handball first, two American National Team players took to the court against each other in a sanctioned competition in another country. Backcourt player Kathy Darling, Bergerac HB and Megan Ballard, Toulouse met each other in a NF1 league contest in Toulouse, France. For the record Toulouse won the match 33-19. Ballard had 5 goals while Darling led Bergerac with 10 goals. Another National Team player, Jennifer Farell is playing in NF2 for Jacou (near Montpellier) and was on hand to witness the match.

NF1 is the third level league in France and you can follow the results and standings for both Toulouse and Bergerac all year long at this weblink:

  1. Hey John, thanks for posting this! Megan's team is stacked and my team is really shorthanded, and fighting injuries, so it wasn't much of a competition. But I am living in France and playing handball so that part is still fantastic.

    PS- If there are any backcourts out there with an EU passport, my team is looking to sign someone. email me: helgatheviking AT yahoo DOT com
