Weekend round up: Wins for De La Rosa, Parrilla & Muñoz

Daniel De La Rosa defeated Andree Parrilla, 15-14, 15-12, to win the Battle at the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, a Tier 4 event on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) on the weekend. In the semi-finals, De La Rosa beat Javier Mar, 14-15, 15-5, 11-3, and Parrilla defeated David Horn, 12-15, 15-12, 11-8.

Parrilla did win Men’s Open with an injury forfeit decision over Mar. In the semis, Parrilla defeated Eduardo Portillo, 14-15, 15-13, 11-1, and Mar beat John Rhodes, 15-2, 15-6.

Carla Muñoz won Women’s Open in San Antonio by defeating Lucia Gonzalez in the final, 15-6, 15-10. But the big win in Women’s Open was Yasmine Sabja taking out Cristina Amaya, who was the 2nd seed, in the first round, 15-11, 15-14.

Finally in San Antonio, Daniel De La Rosa did perhaps the most dangerous thing in racquetball: he played doubles with his wife. But it worked out for him and Michelle De La Rosa (née Key), as they won Mixed Doubles by coming back from a game down to defeat Paola Longoria and Edson Martinez, 13-15, 15-7, 11-3.

The big event this week is the last event of the 2017-18 IRT season: the Florida IRT Regional Championships in Sarasota, April 26-29. And, yes, Kane Waselenchuk is entered. So, fingers crossed that he’ll play.
