Texas Ranchers Make Lineup Adjustments Ahead of MLP D.C. Event

Texas Ranchers Make Lineup Adjustments: The Texas Ranchers have made a roster change heading into the upcoming Major League Pickleball (MLP) event in Washington, D.C., as Quang Duong steps in to replace the sidelined Christian Alshon, the team announced Wednesday via their official social media channels.

Duong, known for his strategic skills and tenacity on the court, will team up with Pablo Tellez, Etta Wright, and Tina Pisnik to strengthen the Ranchers’ lineup as they gear up for their campaign in the second MLP event of the season.

With Alshon recovering from injury, Duong’s inclusion brings a new dynamic to the Ranchers’ squad, aiming to improve upon their current standing. The team currently holds a 2-2 record from the initial event in Atlanta, averaging 1.5 standings points per match, positioning them solidly in fifth place.

The Texas-based team is scheduled to play five crucial matches in the nation’s capital this week, starting with a highly anticipated match against the Utah Black Diamonds on Friday morning at 10 am ET.

Alshon’s injury is his second setback this season, highlighting the difficulties athletes face in staying in top physical shape during an intense professional competition. He aims to return during the upcoming Select Medical Orange County Cup presented by FitVine Wine, set for June 24-30.
