2016 United Healthcare US Open LPRT Doubles Semi-finals

Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) US Open Women's Doubles defending champions Paola Longoria and Samantha Salas earned a chance to defend their title by defeating Sheryl Lotts and Rhonda Rajsich, 15-4, 15-3, in the semi-finals at the 2016 United Healthcare US Open. Lotts and Rajsich were up 4-0 in game one, and 3-2 in game two, but those leads were short lived.

In the final, Longoria and Salas will face 3rd seeds Frédérique Lambert and Veronica Sotomayor, who defeated Cristina Amaya and Adriana Riveros, 15-7, 15-9, in the other semi-final.

If Longoria and Salas win on Saturday, it will be a third consecutive title for Longoria, who won it two years ago with Sotomayor as her partner against Rajsich and Maria Jose Vargas.

The LPRT doubles final is Saturday at 4 PM at the Life Time Athletic Target Center club in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. You can watch the action via the IRT Network.
