WPRO - Ektelon WPRO World Championships - Quarter finals

Rhonda Rajsich and Paola Longoria remain on track to face off for the #1 spot in the Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) rankings, as they both won their quarter final matches Saturday at the Ektelon Women's Professional Racquetball Organization (WPRO) World Championships in Stockton, California.

Rajsich defeated Angela Grisar in the quarters, 11-8, 11-2, 11-4, while Longoria beat Veronica Sotomayor, 11-0, 11-4, 11-8.

Fifth seeded Kristen Bellows had the only quarter final upset, as she defeated fourth seed Kerri Wachtel, 11-8, 11-4, 11-8. Bellows now faces Rajsich in the semis later on Saturday.

Longoria will be looking for some revenge when she plays Cheryl Gudinas Holmes in the other semi final, as Gudinas Holmes defeated Longoria earlier this month at the Pan American Championships in Cali, Colombia. To reach the semis, Gudinas Holmes defeated Adrienne Fisher, 9-11, 11-6, 11-2, 11-6.
