2007 Junior Olympic Racquetball Championships

 The 2007 Junior Olympic Racquetball Championships kick off this week in Tempe, AZ!  ~250 juniors from around the country will come to compete in boys, girls, and doubles brackets segregated by age.  Many of last year’s champions are back to defend their titles, while every other player in the draw has their eye on a big upset.

The other big story is the TEAM title, which California stole from Oregon last year.  Oregon has held the crown for MANY years (10+ I *think*), but the competition from the golden state was too much.  Does Oregon have what it takes to win the title back, or are the new guns in town to stay a while?

Just in case you didn’t get a flight booked to Tempe to check out all the great action, our GREAT friends at www.racquetballonline.tv will be onsite to provide FREE LIVE VIDEO coverage of the matches on the main court.  Just stop by their site to get started!

2005 Holiday Open – Beaverton, OR

Found a few free hours to head to Griffith Park YMCA in Beaverton, OR to check out the action at the 2005 Holiday Open. Number 5 seed (#5?!) Jeff Stark settled all seeding disputes after first taking out number 1 seed Jimmy Lowe in the semi’s, and then number 2 seed Dan Darling in the finals.

Just to add a little flair to the tie-breaker, Jeff hit this pretty “jumping-behind-the-back-pinch-rollout” at 10-6 to win the match.

Also included are misc. shots from some other matches going on around the time of the Men’s Open Finals.
