Liberty University's racquetball team traveled to its third and final Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Racquetball Conference tournament this past Friday through Sunday at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill's  Fetzer Gym, where the Flames and Lady Flames had three first-place doubles tandems and three championship singles players.

The senior duo of Garrison Walker and Seth Jordan finished first in a combined Division 1/2 Blue bracket for men's collegiate doubles before Walker also won the Division 2 Gold singles draw.

Similarly, sophomore Trevor Melton and freshman Stephen Fitzgerald teamed up to win the Division 1/2 Red men's doubles bracket before both captured first-place singles crowns in Division 2 Red and Division 3 Red, respectively.

In Division 3 Gold men's doubles play, freshman David Gray and sophomore Seth Kashuba finished runner-up and freshman Ryan Tomlinson partnered with South Carolina's Ng Sin Hoi to win the Division 4 Red doubles draw.

In women's collegiate doubles, Lady Flames senior Samantha Preston and junior Ivana Quintanilla paired up to win the Division 3/4 Red bracket and junior Rachel Gay and senior Malia Kramolisch joined forces to place third in Division 2.

Gay also was runner-up in women's Division 3 Gold singles and Preston placed third in Division 4 Gold singles.

In the Alumni/Coach/Faculty/Staff division, Liberty Team Assistant Pamela Passburg finished first women's singles bracket and teamed up with Head Coach Danny Rodriguez to place third in the Alumni/Coach/Faculty/Staff mixed doubles draw.

Rodriguez and Assistant Coach Shawn Furman have three weeks to prepare the Flames and Lady Flames for competition in the March 25-28 USA Racquetball Intercollegiate National Championships in Baton Rouge, La.
