June has been a great month for April Ross, the Costa Mesa resident and former Newport Harbor High standout.
Ross and Jennifer Kessy won their third consecutive Assn. of Volleyball Professionals tournament this month with a 21-16, 21-13 win over Rachel Scott and Elaine Youngs in Sunday's final of the AVP Nivea Tour Belmar Open in New Jersey.
This tournament was the first time Ross and Kessy were the No. 1-seeded team. But that didn't mean things came easy for the duo.
