Dozens of friends and family have approached, this afternoon, the City of Xàbia to receive and pay a small tribute to María Cardona Morant, neighbor of Xàbia, when proclaiming herself, together with the Valencian handball team U-17, champion of Spain.
With the obtaining of this title, the City Council has wanted to honor this young neighbor of Xàbia who already has two titles under her belt as a handball player, a fact that both the mayor, José Chulvi and the sports councilor, Alberto Tur, have highlighted in the words that have addressed Cardona. And it is that Maria got, in the summer of 2018, together with her xabiero team, the national beach handball title in the cadet category.
Maria has received the congratulations of the whole town and a commemorative plaque, from the mayor, in memory of this act. Likewise, the xabiera has also delivered a signed shirt to the consistory.
Chulvi and Tur have highlighted the origin of their dedication to handball. A sport that began without more, when I was 10, as an extracurricular activity, and that today, has joined more people, creating a club and giving titles. Cardona has thanked his family for the support and Pep Hierro for his dedication since its inception and for teaching him this sport. María has transmitted that she always takes the name of Xàbia with pride to any place she plays even if she is not on the xabiero team.
