Mejia Wins 3rd Title at 30th Annual Christmas Classic
Montse Mejia (MEX) earned her third pro title at the annual Christmas Classic event hosted at the Severna Park Racquetball and Fitness Club in Millersville, Maryland. This was Mejia’s second title in a row after winning at Chicago’s Turkey Shoot in November, and in both events, she took out #1 Paola Longoria (MEX) and #2 Alexandra Herrera (MEX) to do so.
With her third title, Mejia joins an elite group with the same number of pro wins including current LPRT players Samantha Salas (MEX), Herrera, and Maria Jose Vargas (ARG).
There is no question why this seasonal, festive tournament has been around for so long even though the location has changed three times. The local players and fans are as warm and friendly as they come, so thank you to everyone who came out to watch and cheer for the LPRT athletes. The LPRT would also like to thank AGE Solutions and all the sponsors for supporting the 30th Annual Christmas Classic. We also give a big shout out to our generous tournament directors/sponsors, Karen and Mike Grisz, who give back to this sport in so many ways including their support of the LPRT for this event.
Platt Hill Nursery Turkey Pro Am Crowns New Champ(s)
The annual, pre-Thanksgiving racquetball tournament hosted at the Glass Court Swim & Fitness was packed with exciting matches, upsets, great food, and wonderful people. LPRT pros battled on the glass, fish-bowl court vying for the 2022 title, and to be part of this club’s rich racquetball history. Montse Mejia (MEX) caused a stir of upsets to earn the singles title, while the new double’s pairing of Alexandra Herrera (MEX) and Samantha Salas (MEX), earned the doubles title.
Thank you to Dan Jaskier, Cheryl Kirk, and all the sponsors and volunteers who made the event possible.
