Winter / Spring Happenings!

Illinois Racquetball
This is an exciting time of year in the racquetball world! The ISRA State Doubles and ISRA State Singles are already in the record books and we’re gearing up for the 33rd Annual Shamrock Shootout and IRT Pro Stop presented by KWM Gutterman.

This tournament will feature Pro Doubles for the first time, and we’re hoping for 16 great teams competing for the crown. To get there, they will likely have to beat Kane Waselenchuk and Ben Croft who have entered the Pro Doubles with their eye on the top prize!

Congratulations to our annual award winners:

– ISRA Distinguished Service Award – Dolores Lamberson
– Male Player of the Year – Alok Mehta
– Female Player of the Year – Sue Mueller
– Most Improved Player – Jeremy Dixon
– TJ Ferro Junior Scholarship Award – Michael Fornero

And our newest member of the ISRA Hall of Fame – Tim Sweeney

We had nine members of the ISRA Hall of Fame attend to recognize Tim, and Dave Negrete did the honors by introducing him. Thank you to Jack Newman, Marshall Waldo, Gay Kenna Mason, Art Michaely, Dave Negrete, Cheryl Gudinas, Dave Olson, John O’Donnell, Jr., and Dave Milazzo for being there!

We also want to recognize our newly crowned State Singles Open Champions, Keith Minor and Emily Fauser, as we completed over 25 divisions of play over last weekend. For complete results, click on this link: http://www.r2sports.com/tourney/viewResults.asp?TID=22466.
