May-Treanor wins in Long Beach
LONG BEACH, Calif. -- Misty May-Treanor and Nicole Branagh won the AVP Tour event in Long Beach for their second tour win this season.
Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers won for the fifth tournament in a row, beating No. 2 seed Sean Scott and John Hyden in the men's final 17-21, 21-17, 15-6.
May-Treanor, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, won here in 2007 and 2008 with partner Kerri Walsh. She and Branagh beat Annett Davis and Jenny Johnson Jordan, 21-16, 21-19. May-Treanor also won an NCAA title with Long Beach State in 1998.
"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."
