Longoria wins LPRT Winter Classic

Paola Longoria won the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) 10th Annual Winter Classic in Overland Park, Kansas by defeating LPRT #3 Rhonda Rajsich in the final, 11-1, 11-2, 11-4. It’s Longoria’s 6th win of the season, and will keep her in the #1 position in the rankings.

Longoria was strong in the final, and Rajsich did not look to be at the top of her game. She dove a couple of times in the match, which is common for Rajsich, but she looked awkward in doing so, and the dives took their toll, as Rajsich asked for injury time late in game three, when Longoria led 8-2, so that she could ice some of her body that had hit the floor.

But that was only prolonging the inevitable, as Longoria completed the three game sweep when play resumed.

The next LPRT event is the New Jersey Open from March 6-8 in Warren, New Jersey.
