Following along online for the National Racquetball Championships in Fullerton, CA. Rocky Carson and Kane Waselenchuk are on track to meet again for the championship on Sunday. Carson meets D De La Rosa this afternoon at 4:00.
Upsets abound in the Men's Elite (Tony's class). Number 1 seed Bobby Ferreira was defeated by #17 Brandon Robbins in his first match yesterday. Robbins is set to play in the Semifinal tomorrow. Number 15 seed Paul Julbes (Olympia, Washington) took out #2 Jonathon Clay. Julbes is playing #23 Will Reynolds right now for his spot in the semifinals. Could be interesting.
In the Women's LPRT Pro championship, the inimitable Paola Longoria is set to play for her semifinal berth this afternoon at 5:00. Rhonda Rajsich is playing now for an opportunity to meet Samantha Salis Solis in the semifinal. Assuming Paola wins her match, she'll meet Cheryl Gudinas in the semi-final. All these players have been mentioned at one time or other in the Model Student series and it's great to see them still charging into the final championships. Good luck to all!
