Men's & women's top seeds win in Charleston

by Unknown at 4:06 AM

With the dominant duo of May-Walsh sidelined, Nicole Branagh and Elaine Youngs took the opportunity to clinch their first AVP Open win of the season, defeating Jen Boss/April Ross, 22-20, 21-15, in the women's finals at Charleston.

For the men, Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser continued their tour dominance with their fourth win in a row, defeating Stein Metzger/Mark Williams, 21-19, 21-12.

Metzger-Williams are making a last-ditch effort to capture a berth in the Beijing Olympics, but with this loss to Phil & Todd, and Gibb-Rosenthal's appearance in the gold medal match in the Prague FIVB finals, you have to wonder if the latter two teams have any real chance of being unseated.
