My “Adult Championship Racquetball Team” led by Rocky Carson and Paola Longoria, both had a phenomenal 1st half of the season.
Rocky Carson played in all 7 IRT pro stops from September – December and made it to the finals of 6 out of the 7 IRT events as well as he won 1 of them in Davison, MI November 6-8, 2015. He also won the Pan American Championships in Toronto, Canada in July for the 2nd time.

My “Junior Championship Racquetball Team” is fairing well at all their adult tournaments they are playing in this year. They also qualified for the USA Junior National Team in June and traveled to the Junior World Championships in November to represent their country in the Dominican Republic.
*My Adult and Junior Championship Teams have taken some
much needed time off during the holidays to rest and spend time with their families, but are back at it this week.
Rocky and Paola have a grueling 2nd half of the season loaded with IRT and LPRT events.
Jordan and Wayne are training for the H.S. National Championships in February as well as the Junior National Championships in June. Mitchell is training for the Junior National Championships in June. We are all together in Salem, OR training during the week of Christmas and New Years.
Rocky is heading to Long Island, NY and Paola is going to defend her Cincinnati, OH title after the first of the year.
