LPRT Rankings - Longoria #1, Vargas at #4

Paola Longoria and Rhonda Rajsich the #1 and #2 players on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) following the Paola Longoria Invitational tournament last weekend in Monterrey, Mexico. But Cristina Amaya's time at #3 was short lived as she has fallen to #5 with Samantha Salas and Maria Jose Vargas, the semi-finalists in Monterrey, moving ahead of her into #3 and #4, respectively.

Vargas's #4 ranking is a career high for the 2012 World Junior U18 Champion.

Susana Acosta in 6th is the last of the players with over 600 points. Then there are six players in the 300 point range.

Veteran Cheryl Gudinas leads that pack, and is the 7th ranked player overall. Then it's Da'monique Davis, up from 10th, Adrienne Haynes 9th, Jennifer Saunders 10th, Veronica Sotomayor 11th, and Frédérique Lambert in 12th.

Grace Hughes is 13th, Maria Paz Muñoz 14th, and T. J. Baumbaugh 15th.

Finally, the top 20 rounds out with Hailey Miller (16), Carla Muñoz (17), Linda Scales (18), Sofia Rascon (19), and Aubrey Kirch (20).

Notable in her absence. Kerri Wachtel has dropped out of the top 20. Wachtel's announced in the fall that she will no longer be a regular tour player, and her inactivity has dropped her to 21st.

However, Wachtel should be in action at the next LPRT event as the Wilson Tour for Hope is in her hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio January 24-26.

Longoria's Streak

Longoria hasn't lost a women's pro match since May 2011, a 31 month period. In that span, she's won 98 matches in Tier 1 or Grand Slam events, and another 10 in satellite events, for a total of 108.
