Annie Roberts wins national racquetball title
Barlow High rookie Annie Roberts won the elite bracket at the national high school racquetball championships last weekend without surrendering a game across any of her four matches.
Roberts cruised through her first two bouts, outscoring her early-round opponents by a combined 60-6 before dispatching No. 4-seed Megan Carver out of University High (Wash.) 15-3, 15-7 in the semifinals. Roberts kept it rolling with a 15-7, 15-9 win over No. 3 Nikita Chauhan out of Dougherty Valley High (Calif.) in Sunday's championship match.
It was a busy weekend for Roberts, who paired with Kelsey Klinger for a run to third place in the top-tier doubles bracket, as well.
