Herrera & Mejia win LPRT Doubles at 2019 UnitedHealthcare US Open

Alexandra Herrera and Montserrat Mejia won their first US Open Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT) Doubles title Saturday at the 24th UnitedHealthcare US Open Racquetball Championships in Minneapolis by defeating the defending champions and top ranked LPRT doubles players Paola Longoria and Samantha Salas, 15-13, 15-12. It was a great match with many double digit shot rallies, diving gets and flat roll outs.

Herrera and Mejia had played Longoria and Salas in the US Open final three previous years, but never won. The broke that goose egg today. Also, it's Longoria's first loss in doubles at the US Open. She had won the title the five years the LPRT has played doubles in Minneapolis. Three years with Salas and one each with Veronica Sotomayor and Gabriela Martinez (when Salas was injured).

Longer description to follow.

You need to watch the final on the the LPRT website, or the LPRT YouTube channel, because it was an incredible performance by both teams.
