Longoria & Rajsich to meet in final of the Ektelon Stockton Pro-Am

Familiar foes will once again do battle Sunday in the final of the Ektelon Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) Stockton Pro-Am in Stockton, California, as LPRT #1 Paola Longoria will face off with veteran Rhonda Rajsich, currently the #3 LPRT player.

Longoria defeated Frédérique Lambert in the semis in three straight games, 11-3, 11-8, 11-7, and Rajsich beat LPRT #2 Maria Jose Vargas in four games, 11-7, 12-10, 6-11, 11-4.

Sunday will be the first time Longoria and Rajsich have faced off this season. In fact, the two haven't played since April in San Antonio. Rajsich is the last person to defeat Longoria, but she did so back in May of 2011.

Since then Longoria has been unstoppable. But Sunday is a new day, and Rajsich has the skills to defeat Longoria. She just needs put it all together to carry the day.

The final can be seen on the LPRT Network at noon on Sunday.
