In this community there are endless opportunities for the athlete, but in this case, it's a little different. In the world of Racquetball, Annie Roberts is a serious contender! Right here in our own back yard, a Barlow High School junior, she is currently the reigning girls Oregon High School State Champ! In 2018, she also won the female junior athlete of the year and the Women's Open National Championship. Her list of accomplishments already includes representing the US at racquetball's Junior Olympic World Championships. Truthfully, this list doesn't even scratch the surface. Her coach, Brian Ancheta, Assistant Manager/Racquetball Pro at Cascade Athletic Club and also the President of the Oregon Racquetball Association, stated that she could play on the pro tour right now and probably be Top 25! She's just down right awesome!

And right now, at Cascade Athletic Club, 19201 SE Division St, Gresham, the US Racquetball Association 2019 Regional Championships are in progress! This tournament is a Qualifier for National singles in Denver, CO. There's parking at Gresham Grocery Outlet and look for the Gresham Ford Shuttle starting Friday afternoon! There are bleachers for spectators and a snack bar if you get hungry! And you may just get to see Annie in action!

As you can imagine, competing in any sport is expensive and Annie is working hard to be the best she can be but she needs some help to get there. If you'd like to follow her and all her accomplishments or if you'd like to support her, please visit

We are so proud of this amazing young lady and we look forward to watching her soar! Best of luck, Annie!!
