1983 Alaska State Singles Racquetball Championships
Alaska Athletic Club
April 21-25, 1983


This was the very first Racquetball Tournament I ever played in, I entered the Men’s Novice Division and was lucky enough to Win 1st Place. That was it!. I was hooked. There I was just starting out, And and look who was WINNING the MEN’S OPEN. That guy has been a Tough player for a long time!.The Anchorage / Fairbanks rivalry was as strong as ever, With Anchorage doing quite well this year by taking both the Men’s & Women’s Open Division Title’s.
