LPRT Winter Classic - Longoria & Rajsich win semis

The Ladies Pro Racquetball Tour (LPRT) semi-finals of the 8th Annual Winter Classic in Overland Park, Kansas were early on Sunday morning due to the re-scheduling caused by the weather last week, but the outcomes were expected as the top seeds - Paola Longoria and Rhonda Rajsich - both won and will meet in the final later Sunday.

Top seed Longoria defeated fellow Mexican Susanna Acosta, 11-5, 11-2, 11-4, while second seed Rajsich beat Adrienne Fisher Haynes, 11-1, 11-7, 11-1.

Rather than going for power on the serve, Longoria used a lob tight to the right wall against left handed Acosta, and followed it up with her characteristic hard and low shot during the rallies.

The final match will be streamed live over the internet via the LPRT Network at 1 PM on Sunday.
