Isaac Acosta killed the competition and captured the men’s doubles title with his handball partner.

 Queens has a long history of native sons going on to great accomplishments in sports after leaving their home borough. Another name has been added to that list, as Ozone Park’s own Isaac Acosta went wall-to-wall, capturing the men’s doubles title in handball for Lake Forest College in Illinois.

The college junior and his doubles partner, C.J. Laffey, edged Missouri State’s Jonathan Hingey and Jeff Steibig by scores of 21-19 and 21-9. In addition, Lake Forest wrapped up the Division 1 team titles on Saturday, February 25.
