On Father's Day, Newport Harbor High volleyball coach Dan Glenn didn't watch two of his girls play in the sand.
While Glenn's former star players, April Ross and Misty May-Treanor, spent their Sunday on opposite sides of the net in Virginia Beach, Va., Glenn was with his family in Newport Beach.
Glenn was at the beach, away from the TV. He might want to stay at home on Sundays from now on.
Ross and May-Treanor are making a habit of playing against each other for all the marbles on the day of rest on national TV. For the second Sunday this month during the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals Nivea Tour, Ross and May-Treanor led their respective teams to the final.
Glenn watched the first one, the Huntington Beach Open, two weeks ago on TV. Ross and teammate Jennifer Kessy stunned May-Treanor and Nicole Branagh, 14-21, 21-12, 15-11, to win their first AVP title on Southern California soil.
