Walsh / Ross and Keenan / Mayer Win AVP St Pete
The women’s final was between Kerri Walsh Jennings / April Ross and Lauren Fendrick / Brooke Sweat. A grueling match, but Walsh and Ross ended up on top winning 19-21, 21-15, 15-11.
The men’s final followed right after. Jake Gibb / Casey Patterson and Brad Keenan / John Mayer went 3 sets in their match as well, with Keenan / Mayer winning a close third set, 16-21, 21-19, 18-16.
With Ross and Keenan winning, this the third time in AVP history that a married couple has won at the same event. Walsh also made history today with her 67th AVP win, making her the winningest women in AVP history!
