Stockton Pro-Am Preview - 2nd last event of the IRT season

The penultimate Tier 1 event of the 2011-12 International Racquetball Tour (IRT) season starts today in Stockton, California, as the Stockton Pro-Am gets underway with three rounds of qualifying matches. Most of the big names are in Stockon but Andy Hawthorne and Charlie Pratt are missing. Hawthorne is likely still recovering from having his appendix out last month.

Back from injury is young Marco Rojas, younger brother of Jose Rojas. He's been out of action for almost a year due to a leg injury. If he makes it through qualifying he'll face IRT #1 Kane Waselenchuk, which would be a fine welcome back to tournament play.

An interesting potential 3rd round qualifying match is Anthony Herrera versus Mike Orr with the winner to face Shane Vanderson in the round of 16 on Friday.

The 8-9 match in the 16s, could feature Javier Moreno versus Tony Carson, which could be a good one.

The IRT Network will be web-casting Stockton Pro-Am matches beginning Thursday April 19 at 8 PM PDT with the 3rd round of qualifying.
