Congratulations to Will Craig (San Antonio, TX) who teamed up with top professional player Polo Gutierrez (Juarez, Chihuahua, MEX) to win the 2011 St. Jude Pro Am Sponsor Doubles championship Wednesday evening at the US OPEN Racquetball Championships in Minneapolis, MN. The duo defeated Bob Fulton (Flower Mound, TX) and Kane Waselenchuk (Austin, TX) 15-14 in the finals of the 32-team bracket. The event raised $9,750 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The US Open was a fitting success for Will Craig, a recent graduate of TXRA Juniors, who will soon be headed to Cochabamba, Bolivia. Will is going to serve a two-year mission in the Central and Southern portion of Bolivia and a small part of Northern Argentina. He will spend 3 weeks in a stateside mission training center learning the language and then he will go to Peru for another 6 weeks to continue learning the language and assimilate into the culture. Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in South America.
