Longoria top LPRT rankings for 6th time

Several changes in the top 20 Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) season ending rankings from 2013-14 to 2014-15, including changes in the top five. But for the 4th season in a row - and 6th in the last 7 seasons - Paola Longoria is the #1 women's professional racquetball player. Her six season ending #1 titles tie her for 2nd all time with Lynn Adams and put her one behind Michelle Gould with seven.

But the LPRT's #2 player has changed, as Maria Jose Vargas passed Rhonda Rajsich this season for the second spot, which is a career best finish for Vargas. Rajsich is #3.

Also on a career high is Frédérique Lambert, who finished 4th ahead of Samantha Salas in 5th and Cristina Amaya in 6th. Lambert was 6th last year.

New to the top 10 are Michelle Key and Sofia Rascon, who came in 7th and 8th, respectively, both career highs for them. Da'monique Davis rounds out the top 10 at #10.

But notably, Cheryl Gudinas finished 9th this season, up from 11th last season, and it's her 21st top 10 finish on the women's pro tour, which is far more than any other woman. Jackie Paraiso is 2nd with 16 top ten finishes and Rajsich is 3rd with 15.

Four new players in the next 10, as Alexandra Herrera is 12th, Jessica Parrilla 14th, Kim Thomas 18th, and Lucia Gonzalez 20th.

Those four players replaced Aubrey Kirch, who was 7th last season, Sharon Jackson (16th), Jennifer Saunders (17th), and Hailey Miller (18th).
