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
aside from a tie coming due to weather in Florida at the beginning of
the season.
