Doubles championship on tap


The U.S. Racquetball Association will hold the 32nd U.S. National Racquetball Doubles Championships tomorrow through Sunday at Merritt Athletic Club/Security.

Doug Ganim of Westerville, Ohio, and Dan Obremski of North Versailles, Pa., will try to defend their men's open title. They are seeking their fifth title together.

Obremski is returning to national competition for the first time since suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament last year.

In the women's doubles, the defending champions, twins Jackie Paraiso of El Cajon, Calif., and Joy MacKenzie of Santee, Calif., won't be back. McKenzie has retired from competitive racquetball. Paraiso is now teamed with Laura Fenton of Lincoln, Neb.

The Orioles' Jeff Conine will compete in mixed doubles with his wife, Cindy Doyle Conine, a former U.S. national team member.

Matches will be held throughout the day, and admission is free.
