Case is the number one ranked player in Kentucky according to Howard Kaplin, a tournament organizer. It was his second victory in a row, winning last year’s competition with David Fleischaker. During the annual dinner, Case was awarded “Fly Spirit Award.” Fleischaker’s recent passing inspired the award to showcase a person with David’s passion and ambassadorship for the game.
“He is always willing to step on to the court with anyone and shows a true love of the game and competition,” said Kaplin.
The annual tournament was started by the Gumer and Skolnick families in honor of Ike Gumer, a member of the National Racquetball Hall of Fame and Bruce Gumer, Ike’s son and an avid racquetball player at The J.
