Weekend Round Up

Lambert wins Women's Open

Frédérique Lambert won the women's open division at the Great Balls of Fire tournament down in Miami, as she defeated Susana Acosta, 15-12, 15-8, in the final. In the semi-finals, Lambert beat fellow Canadian Brigitte Richard, 15-4, 15-3, while Acosta beat another Canadian Christine Richardson, 15-4, 15-3.

Playing a century

Javier Moreno's upset of Ben Croft - the International Racquetball Tour's (IRT's) #3 player - was remarkable not simply for the outcome, but it was also the second highest scoring match this IRT season. The total points was 103 with Moreno winning 15-13, 11-9, 10-12, 3-11, 11-8. It was another example of the losing player having more points than the winner, as Croft scored 53 points to Moreno's 50.

Three other centuries have been played this season: Alvaro Beltran and Jack Huczek scored 100 at Kansas City Pro-Am, with Beltran winning, Jansen Allen and Danny Lavely scored 101 at the US Open (Allen won), and the most points scored in a match was 108 by Marco Mijares and Jeremy McGlothin, which also occurred at the US Open, when Mijares won.
