Comhghairdeas Lorcan

December 29th, 2016

Congratulations to Lorcan McBride who is the new US Junior Nationals 15&U Champion in both the 40×20 small ball and big ball events.
Lorcan defeated Calgary’s Carter Rakochey in impressive fashion to secure the Big Ball 15&U crown and then powered past last years 13&U US Nationals champion, Ray Ure (Illinois) by 21-5, 21-3 in the final of the 40×20 Junior Nationals 15&U grade to collect the honours there too.

He is the first Irish winner of this US December 15&U Nationals Event since 2011 and only the 3rd Tyrone handballer to win this title, following Ciaran Curran (1989) and Antoin Fox who won the June Nationlas 15&U grade in 2016.
