Aug. 18, 2009
LOS ANGELES -- Former USC players April Ross and Jen Kessy defeated the top-seeded team of Nicole Branagh and Elaine Youngs in three sets Saturday to win the AVP Crocs Tour San Francisco Open. Ross and Kessy won their third AVP title this season, along with four second-place finishes.
After falling to the same team last week at the Hermosa Beach Open, Ross-Kessy were able to win the title by scores of 16-21, 21-19 and 15-12. The Women of Troy tandem has had great success this year after winning the 2009 FIVB World Beach Championship last month in Norway.
