by Unknown at 6:53 PM

Two US women's teams in the FIVB Adelaide Open are struggling to hang on. Both teams, Nicole Branagh & Elaine Youngs (4), and Tyra Turner & Rachel Wacholder (14), are playing in the contenders bracket in the quarter-finals.

The US team of Boss-Ross (7), who scored a FIVB gold medal in 2007, lost to a virtually unknown Australian qualifier to be eliminated from the tournament, giving them a finish of 17th.
