2016 United Healthcare US Open LPRT Doubles Qualifying

Three matches are in the books in the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) doubles draw at the 2016 United Healthcare US Open, and all three have been upsets. In an all-American battle, the young team of Jordan Cooperrider and Erika Manilla took out the veteran team of Cheryl Gudinas and Sharon Jackson, 15-9, 15-8.

In the other matches, Koreans Ana Jungeon and Jin Young Seok defeated Cecilia Pratt and Maria Renee Rodriguez, 15-11, 15-11, while two pairs of sisters faced off with Maritza Franco and Regina Franco overcoming Gabriela Martinez and Andrea Martinez, 12-15, 15-8, 11-8.

But so far those teams haven't survived the second round of qualifying. Susana Acosta and Jessica Maldonado defeated Jordan Cooperrider and Erika Manilla, 15-14, 15-12, and Jessica Parrilla and Monserrat Perez beat sisters Maritza and Regina Franco, 15-4, 7-15, 11-8.

The LPRT qualifying continues Wednesday at the 2016 UnitedHealthcare US Open with the quarterfinals on Thursday, semi-finals Friday, and final Saturday at 4 PM at the Life Time Athletic Target Center club in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.
