Competing in the third Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Racquetball Conference (MACRC) tournament of the season, Liberty University's women's racquetball team racked up two singles and two doubles titles last weekend at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, where the Flames' men's team had one singles champion.

Lady Flames graduate Student Pamela Passburg won the Division 1-2 White bracket and teamed with senior Lindsey Marston to capture first place in Division 2 doubles. In the Division 4 White bracket, freshman Kelsey Cox claimed the singles crown, defeating junior teammate Malia Kramolisch in the final. Kramolisch joined forces with sophomore Rachel Gay to win the Division 3-4 White doubles title, vanquishing Cox and teammate freshman Ivana Quintanilla in the final.

Gay also finished runner-up in the Division 4 Red singles competition, where Quintanilla placed fourth, and Marston won the consolation final to take third in the Division 1-2 Red singles bracket.

On the men's side, Liberty sophomore Grant Knaus won the Division 1-2 White singles championship and combined with junior Garrison Walker to place third in the Division 1-2 doubles bracket.

Flames sophomore JP Edwards and senior Seth Jordan came in second in the Division 1-2 Gold doubles competition with Edwards also finishing third in the Division 1-2 Gold singles bracket.

The senior tandem of Jesse Gauldin and Christian Tinsley placed fourth in the Division 3 Gold doubles draw.

Liberty will travel to North Carolina State for the fourth and final MACRC tournament on Feb. 15-17 before sending a contingent to the USA Racquetball Collegiate National Championships from April 3-6 in Tempe, Ariz.
