De La Rosa & Montoya into final at The 2023 Tracktown Open IRT ProAm

Daniel De La Rosa and Rodrigo Montoya - the #2 and #4 players on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) - will meet in the final of The 2023 Tracktown Open IRT ProAm in Eugene, Oregon on Sunday. In Saturday’s semi-finals, De La Rosa needed three games to defeat IRT #2 Jake Bredenbeck, 15-12, 9-15, 11-6, while Montoya beat IRT #9 Samuel Murray in two close games, 15-12, 15-9.

The matches in Eugene continued to be very competitive, as they were in the quarterfinals on Friday. Saturday’s games were decided by an average of 4.6 points, which is slightly higher than Friday’s average of 3 points across the 4 quarterfinals. Two of Friday’s quarters went to a tie-breaker, and the two that didn’t were decided by five points or fewer.

In doubles, the top two seeds will square off in Sunday’s final. Top seeds Adam Manilla and Andree Parrilla squeaked out a win over 4th seeds Montoya and Alan Natera, 15-7, 13-15, 11-10. They face 2nd seeds Daniel De La Rosa and Alejandro Landa in the final, as De La Rosa and Landa held on to defeat 6th seed Kadim Carrasco and Conrrado Moscoso, 15-14, 13-15, 11-4.

Thus, Sunday’s doubles final will be Manilla and Parrilla versus De La Rosa and Landa.

The singles final will be Sunday at 11 AM with the doubles final at noon. All times Pacific. You can see the action via the usual IRT media outlets: The IRT YouTube channel or the IRT Facebook page. T
