IRT Rankings - Beltran 3rd after Waselenchuk & Carson

Kane Waselenchuk remains #1 in the latest International Racquetball Tour (IRT) rankings, which came out last week. Rocky Carson also holds steady at #2, but Alvaro Beltran has moved up to #3, which ties his career high. Beltran was last in the #3 spot in 2009, when he was behind Carson and Jack Huczek.

Ben Croft, who has only won one match in two IRT events this season, has fallen to #6. Croft went out in the quarter finals in Kansas City and then lost in the 32s at the US Open to Alex Ackermann, who didn't crack the top 20 (he's 21st) with that win and the following victory over Anthony Herrera - the #11 IRT player.

Jose Rojas is also down a spot to #4 with Chris Crowther, who was a semi-finalist in the US Open, up one to #5.

After Croft, the top 10 is rounded out by Shane Vanderson in 7th, Tony Carson in 8th, Andy Hawthorne in 9th and Charlie Pratt in 10th.

The next IRT event is the Red Swain Shootout, November 1-4 in Davison, Michigan.
