2015 Galaxy Custom Printing IRT Preview

The Galaxy Custom Printing International Racquetball Tour (IRT) Pro-Am, the 2nd of 5 consecutive Tier 1 events, begins today in Lilburn, Georgia. However, IRT #1 Kane Waselenchuk is not there due to a family emergency, according to the IRT website.

Thus, Rocky Carson is the top seed with Alvaro Beltran #2, Daniel De La Rosa #3 and Jose Rojas #4. Also, Felipe Camacho and Robert Collins are seeded into the Round of 16.

Also in the draw is Sebastian Franco, who was a semi-finalist last week in San Marcos, Texas. Franco upset De La Rosa in the 16s last week en route to the semis, and they may meet again this week, if they both get to the quarterfinals. Franco would have to win his qualifying match against David Stincer and then upset Jansen Allen to get there, while De La Rosa will face the winner of Mario Mercado and Matt Fontana in the 16s.

Play will be streamed live from Friday on via the IRT Network.
