The left and right handed duo of Dan Case and Nick Stover proved to be too much for the competition as they won the annual Ike and Bruce Gumer Racquetball Tournament on Sunday, December 10.
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.
