Wacholder and Youngs beat May-Treanor and Walsh in AVP final


HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF. - Rachel Wacholder and Elaine Youngs upset top seeds Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Sunday in the final of the AVP Huntington Beach Open.

Wacholder and Youngs won 21-15 and 21-16, becoming the first team in more than two years to sweep the 2004 Olympic Gold medalists in a final.

It was the second win of the season for second-seeded Wacholder and Youngs.

The pair also beat May-Treanor and Walsh at the AVP Cincinnati Open in July. They are the only team to beat May-Treanor and Walsh in an AVP event this season.

Wacholder and Youngs, the Olympic bronze medalists in 2004, are second in points in the AVP Championship Series with 3870 points, behind May-Treanor and Walsh's 4176 points.
