San Diego has been kind to Matt Fuerbringer with regard to beach volleyball.

The Assn. of Volleyball Professionals season is over, but April Ross and Jennifer Kessy continue to win pro tournaments on the sand. Ross, a former Newport Harbor High star, and Kessy captured the women's title at the Cincinnati Players Championship Sunday. When the AVP folded last month there was still a desire to put on a Labor Day weekend tournament at recently completed Hahana Beach Sports Complex in Columbia Township. The prize money was lowered for the event. Ross and Kessy reportedly shared $10,000, as opposed to the usual $20,000 for winning an AVP event.

Karch Kiraly, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, is one of the few players on the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals tour who doesn't mind playing in the elements. Wind, rain, it makes no difference to Kiraly. But the beating sun of Hot-lanta offers another familiarity for Kiraly: it's here that he won a gold medal at the Atlanta summer games in 1996 with partner Kent Steffes. Atlanta is also the city where beach volleyball made its Olympic debut. Kiraly, who is retiring from the AVP after this season, will compete in the main draw today with current partner Kevin Wong.

HERMOSA BEACH — Misty May-Treanor may have beach volleyball down to a science. After her record-setting 73rd professional tournament win on Sunday afternoon at the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals Hermosa Beach Open, she had a mathematics formula, too. "My favorite number is five," May-Treanor said. "So, seven plus three is 10, divided by two is five. I don't know. I'm glad it's over … it was always just about volleyball. "For me, the team is the most important thing.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — For the second straight year, Newport Harbor High product Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh walked away from the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals’ Cuervo Gold Crown series final empty-handed. May-Treanor and Walsh, who have won all three AVP tournaments since the season started last month, forfeited Sunday’s final in the Cuervo Gold Crown series because Walsh aggravated an injury in her right shoulder.
