LPRT - California Regionals - Quarter finals

Maria Jose Vargas's had another good result Saturday morning, as she defeated Adrienne Fisher, 11-8, 11-2, 11-3, in the quarter-finals of the Ladies Pro Racquetball Tour (LPRT) division of the California Regionals tournament, which puts her in the semi-finals of a Tier 1 LPRT event for the first time in her young career.

However, Vargas's task gets more difficult now, as she'll play LPRT #1 Paola Longoria in the semis, and Longoria hasn't lost on tour since May 2011. In Saturday's quarter finals, Longoria defeated Grace Hughes, 11-1, 11-3, 11-9.

On the other side of the draw, 2nd seed Rhonda Rajsich is the last American alive in the draw, and she needed five games to get by Samantha Salas, winning 7-11, 11-6, 11-7, 3-11, 12-10.

Rajsich will play Susana Acosta in the semis, as Acosta beat Kerri Wachtel, 11-, 11-0, 11-4.

The semi-finals are at 4 PM and 5 PM PDT Saturday and the final at noon PDT on Sunday, and all three matches can be seen via the LPRT Network.
