Longoria wins LPRT Battle of the Alamo

Paola Longoria won her ninth event of the 2014-15 Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) season, as she defeated LPRT #2 Maria Jose Vargas, 11-7, 11-9, 5-11, 11-2, in the final of the Battle of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas Sunday.

Although Longoria won in four games, it's the second time this season that Vargas has taken a game off of Longoria. The first was all the way back in the second event of the season in Huixquilucan, Mexico, where Longoria also won in four games. In five other matches (all in the final), Longoria won in three straight games.

Longoria, who had three undefeated seasons coming into this season, is unbeaten against Vargas, but has lost twice this season: once to Rhonda Rajisch and once to Frédérique Lambert.

Longoria also won the LPRT Doubles competition with partner Samantha Salas, although it was uneventful as Michelle Key and Lambert defaulted the final.

The final LPRT event of the 2014-15 season is the LPRT Pro Nationals in Herndon, Virginia May 15-17. If you missed any of this weekend's action, you can view is at the LPRT Livestream channel.
