Misty May-Treanor and Nicole Branagh
Celebrate Win in May-Treanors Home Turf
The womens AVP team of Misti May-Treanor and Nicole
Branagh bounced back from being knocked out in the semi
final round in Hermosa Beach the week before.
The pair secured a win over Annett Davis and Jenny
Johnson Jordan who are ranked third on the womens tour.
May-Treanor, who won the NCAA volleyball championship
with Long Beach State in 1998, and Branagh earned their
second tour win of the season. May-Treanor is no stranger
to winning professionally in Long Beach, having won the
Long Beach Open in 2007 and 2008 with partner Kerri Walsh.
May-Treanor and Branagh have been working on some
adjustments to their game, and they seemed to pay off this
weekend. May-Treanor moved to the left side, with Branagh
going to the right.
“It feels good. It puts a smile on our faces,” May-Treanor said.
“I went to school here and have a house in the city. I love this
city, the people, the fans. I love playing in front of a home crowd.”
On the mens side Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers continued
to dominate the 2010 AVP Mens Tour with a win over Sean Scott
and John Hyden. The 2 volleyball “Super hero’s” lost their first
game and then came back to win the second two 21-17, 15-6.
The Olympic gold medal champs remain unbeaten on the 2010 tour
