LOS ANGELES — There was no dearth of awards Thursday night for Misty May-Treanor, who was honored at the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals awards banquet at the Beverly Hilton.
May-Treanor, a Newport Harbor High graduate, captured honors for Most Valuable Player, Best Offensive Player, and Best Defensive Player.
She and teammate Kerri Walsh were also named Team of the Year after winning 13 of the 15 regular season AVP events they entered this year. May-Treanor and Walsh finished with a 76-3 match record, and lost 14 games all season.

It was the fifth straight Team of the Year honor for May-Treanor and Walsh, and May-Treanor was named Best Offensive Player for the fourth straight year.
