QUINCY, Mass. — A victory over Misty May-Treanor and partner Kerri Walsh could be considered revolutionary these days on the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals tour, where the Newport Harbor High product and her partner had won the last 10 events they had entered.
And, in fact, that streak came to and end Sunday, as Elaine Youngs and Nicole Branagh rallied for a 15-21, 21-19, 16-14 victory in the final of the Boston Open Sunday.
The loss ended a 39-match AVP winning streak for May-Treanor and Walsh, who had won 21 straight championship matches, in AVP and international events.
