The AVP Tour came through Hermosa Beach July 16-18th and
Olymic champs Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers continued to
flex their muscle and show they are still the team to beat on the
mens tour.

Dalhausser and Rogers, the top-seeded men’s team, beat 13th-seeded
John Mayer and Matt Prosser, 21-14, 21-11, in Sunday’s final. They
lost just one game in five matches throughout the weekend.

Tim Hovland.

“It’s pretty cool considering only one other team has won five
in a row (at the same location),” Rogers said, referring to
Mike O’Bright and Mike O’Hara’s five straight Manhattan Beach
wins from 1960-64. “It’s pretty special.”

Mayer and Prosser were the lowest-seeded men’s team to make
a final this season. 
 

“I would definitely say I was happy to be there. It wasn’t in the plans
as the 13th seed to be in the final,” Mayer said. “But at the same time,
when you get there, I planned on winning. But they make it tough on you.
I’m bummed now, but when I look back on it, I’ll realize it was a
heck of a weekend.”

Dalhausser and Rogers continue to be a step above the others teams
on the tour and some experts think that the only competition they
have is in internation play and teams overseas.

The AVP tour limits the number of international teams which can
compete so that may not be coming any time soon and until then
other teams will need to step up their game in order to be these
two volleyball “super heros”.
