Photos – 2008 IRT World Racquetball Championships

The IRT season started with a bang this year, with Grand Slam events, return of top players, live streaming on ESPN360.com, and an "all glass" court hosting matches in a open downtown metropolitan area. Congrats to Kane Waselenchuk for winning both of his first two events this season, I think he’ll be setting the high mark all year long.

Mike Boatman, from Mike Boatman Photography was lucky enough to be shooting on the new court in Denver, and got some great racquetball photos to start off the season. Mike is a consummate professional, and national commercial photographer for his day job.  Check out his website if you’ve got any photo related needs!!

Here is the gallery of his shots (ALL COPYRIGHT MIKE BOATMAN):

Update on Rhonda Rajsich’s Injuries

It’s been a while since visiting Rhonda’s Website to get some updates on her condition, so I decided to stop today after remembering a rumor that she actually played at the World Championships in Ireland, as well as the Outdoor Nationals in California.  I should have guessed that Rhonda would take no time in getting back in action, but TEN DAYS!?!? You go, girl.

Rhonda, tell your website person that you need RSS feeds for your news!!

From www.rhondarocks.com :

Rhonda has been making fantastic progress as she heals and recovers from the June 1, 2008 assault.  She started to train again in early July and is getting her strength back on a daily basis.

Rhonda was welcomed by an enthusiastic crowd at the WOR Championships in Huntington Beach, California.  This tournment was Rhonda’s first tournament since the assault.  Although she felt the lingering effects of the attack, the crowds were excited to see her return to play.  Because her face continues to heal, she is required to wear a custom fit mask while playing.

She will be competing with Team USA at the IRF World Championships August 1-10, 2008 in Kingscourt, Ireland.

Rhonda would again like to thank all of her fans for the love and support as she continues to recover.

RB Update

Just wanted to send congratulations out to Kara Mazur, University of Alabama, and Tony Carson, Colorado State University – Pueblo, for their victories last weekend in the #1 Gold Division at Intercollegiates. Those wins have earned each a 1 year appointment to the US National Team.

Still awaiting word if Kara will now go on to New Orleans and the Chemtech WPRO World Championships presented by Ektelon April 17-20. This one will be a great event as Rhonda Rajsich and Cheryl Gudinas Holmes fight it out for the coveted year end #1 ranking. You can enter online for this one at:

The IRT is currently in Tijuana, Mexico, and 3 Herrera’s have made the main draw. Last week’s beaten finalist from the Men’s #1 Gold, Anthony Herrrera, has rebounded nicely to qualify into the main draw where he plays Rocky Carson.

There are some great matches slated for this tournament this weekend, so check out the results at:

This all leads up to the Big One…The Motorola IRT Pro Nationals presented by Verizon Wireless. All I can say is, get to Chicago if you can. Rocky Carson and Jack Huczek will be bringing all they have to win the year end #1 ranking. The brand new Lucite Court will make its debut and ESPN360 will be there, as well as ESPN Classic. You can check out the website at:

entry forms are available at that site. I didn’t see an online entry there, but you can download the form. If I can find the online entry, I will send that along.
