End of Season Summary:
C3 endured a tough season of losses, often facing larger and more physical teams. However, the W-L column is not the only defining point of the season. C3 pursued all of their team goals (handball proficiency, excellent conditioning, and a winning record). The entire team is now well versed in the sport of handball. Additionally, after several weeks of working out and playing 40 minute games the team is in top physical condition. Yes, the team did not establish a winning record as they went winless, but utlimately the pursuit of a winning record kept C3's heads held high, motivated, and strengthened the resolve to achieve the former two team goals. All players were developed to his or her fullest potential and also really developed a strong team cohesion. C3 also displayed a lot of class and sportsmanship under all circumstances.

Team Goals:
1. Become proficient with the rules and strategies of Team Handball- This will ensure that C3 is fully prepared to play at a competitive level and dedicated to performing at their best.
2. Excellent Conditioning- A high level of physical fitness obtained before the start of the regular season will set the team up for success on and off the court. A highly fit team will be a force to be reckoned with as Team Handball is a highly physical sport.
