Longoria wins LPRT Christmas Classic

Paola Longoria won the Ladies Pro Racquetball Tour's (LPRT's) 22nd Annual Christmas Classic in Arlington, Virgina for a third consecutive year, as she defeated Rhonda Rajsich in the final on Sunday, 11-2, 11-5, 11-5. Longoria closes out 2013 without losing an LPRT match, which is the second calendar year she's been undefeated. Her winning streak goes back to May of 2011.

The LPRT will be in action again next weekend in Monterray, Mexico, which will be the site of the Paola Longoria Invitational tournament.

LPRT Awards

In Arlington, the LPRT named their award winners of 2013. Longoria was named Player of the Year with Maria Jose Vargas named Rookie of the Year and Cristina Amaya as the Most Improved Player. The Janet Myer Sportsmanship Award went to Hailey Miller.

Those concerned about the state of women's high performance racquetball in the USA will note that none of the LPRT performance awards went to American women.
