Bremerton’s Glenn Carden advanced to the finals in open singles at the United States Handball Associations’s Hall of Fame and Rocky Mountain Regional tournament in Tucson, Ariz., on Saturday.
The 61-year-old Carden, a 15-time national age-group champion, takes on David Fink, a touring pro who is about 35 years younger, in Sunday’s singles finals. Update: Fink beat Carden 21-3, 21-3.
Carden was also awarded the Marty Decatur Sportsmanship Award during the tournament. Here’s a picture of Glenn and his wife Jackie with the award.
Carden’s been in the Phoenix area for the past month or so. He was going to enter the 60s, but there weren’t enough entries and they made him the No. 2 seed in open singles.
Carden heads to San Diego for the U.S. Masters singles tournament the first week of April.
