Friday was the 95-and-over singles title. William Matotan from Albuquerque took on Lake Westphal from Arizona. They've played racquetball for more than 50 years and they have no intention of slowing down now.

"I made a vow," Westphal said. "The only vow I made to myself in all my life was about a year, year-and-a-half ago, and I said I was going to be the first man to be 100 and be playing racquetball. So I have four years and 11 months to go."
