Amaya through to semi-finals at LPRT CNRA State Singles

Cristina Amaya was an upset winner Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) CNRA State Singles Championships in Fountain Valley, California, as she defeated 3rd seed Rhonda Rajsich, 4-11, 11-7, 11-9, 11-7. The 6th seeded Amaya will play 2nd seed Maria Jose Vargas in the semi-finals later Saturday, as Vargas beat Susana Acosta, 13-11, 11-3, 11-1, in the quarters.

On the top of the draw, doubles team-mates Paola Longoria and Samantha Salas will face off in the other semi. Longoria, the LPRT’s #1 player defeated Michelle Key in the quarters, 11-8, 11-5, 11-3. Salas beat Frédérique Lambert in the quarters.
