HEAD Penn’s Longoria Continues Domination
Overland Park, Kansas — When Paola Longoria stepped on the court for the Championship Final of the 2013 Winter Classic in Kansas over the weekend, it had been 1 year, 9 months and 23 days since she lost a match on the Ladies Professional Racquetball Tour (LPRT). That’s 665 consecutive days, or 57,456,000 seconds, or 15,960 hours or 95 weeks since Longoria did not come away the victor. No matter how you calculate it, it has been a very, very long time! And the result in Overland Park was the same as the previous 16 LPRT events with Paola winning yet another title.
The San Luis Potosi, Mexico native now holds a record streak of 17 LPRT events (15 Grand Slam/Tier 1 and 2 Satellite Events) won in a row, a span that covers another record of 68 consecutive professional matches.
During her streak, Longoria has also dominated the courts during international competition. She won the Women’s Singles Title at the 2011 Pan American Games, the 2012 Pan American Championships, and the 2012 International Racquetball Federation’s (IRF) World Championships. Her overall consecutive matches win streak for international and LPRT competitions has now reached 91.
HEAD Penn’s Adrienne Fisher Haynes also played well in Kansas and reached the semifinals.
