Longoria vs. Rajsich in the LPRT Winter Classic final

Paola Longoria has a chance to win another Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) event Sunday, as she has reached the final of the 10th Annual Winter Classic in Overland Park, Kansas with a win over Samantha Salas, 11-6, 11-3, 11-6, on Saturday.

Longoria’s opponent in the final will be 3rd seed Rhonda Rajsich, who was a winner against 2nd seed Maria Jose Vargas in the other semi-final after Vargas developed an injury in the fourth game, when Rajsich was up 2-1. We’re unsure what Vargas’s injury is, but speculation was that she injured her upper right leg or groin area, which severely hampered movement in the fourth game, and she was down 7-0 when she decided to retire from the match.

Hopefully, Vargas’s injury is not severe, although if it is a groin injury, it can be tricky to recover from, as it ca be difficult to completely rest the muscles that need to be healed.

The final can be viewed via the LPRT Network. beginning at noon CST on Sunday.
