2017 AVP Tour – Hermosa Beach Open

The first day of the Hermosa Beach Open main draw has concluded with round 4 of play to pick up on July 22. This is the first time the AVP Tour has stopped in Hermosa Beach since 2010. From 1984-2010 the event was a regular feature on the tour and has now been re-added.

The elimination portion of the tournament begins on July 22 with the contender’s bracket kicking things off for both the men and women.


Emily Day/Brittany Hochevar took down both of their day one opponents starting with Mackenzie Phelps-Ponnet/Molly Turner 2-0, (21-15, 21-16) then Jace Pardon/Brittany Tiegs 2-1, (21-19, 18-21, 15-11).

The number two seeded Kim DiCello/Emily Stockman were only able to secure one win on the day, taking down Aurora Davis/Bree Scarbrough 2-0, (21-19, 21-18) but losing to Caitlin Ledoux/Maria Clara Salgado 2-1, (18-21, 21-19, 15-11). The duo will await their next match in the contender’s bracket.

The third seeded Jennifer Fopma/Kelly Reeves saw a similar fate as DiCello/Stockman, only winning one match on the day. They began with a straight set win over Karissa Cook/Katie Spieler 2-0, (21-17, 22-20) but losing to Lane Carico/Alix Klineman 2-1, (21-18, 14-21, 18-16).


For the men, top-seeded Billy Allen/Stafford Slick won their first match of the day against Brian Miller/Brett Ryan 2-0, (21-19, 21-17). They followed up their win with a loss to Tim Bomgren/Curt Toppel 2-1, (20-22, 21-15, 15-12). With the loss, Allen/Slick move to the contender’s bracket and will face the winner of a round two opponent.

The second-seeded Taylor Crabb/Jake Gibb won both of their day one matches starting with Raffe Paulis/Spencer Sauter 2-0, (21-9, 21-19) than Reid Priddy/Ricardo Santos 2-0, (21-19, 21-17). Priddy recently announced that he will be trying for his fifth Olympic Games in Tokyo but on the sand. Priddy has been a strong fixture for the U.S. Men’s National Team but has dabbled slightly in beach volleyball before really turning things up on the indoor side. Much like Allen/Slick, Priddy/Santos will await their contender’s bracket match on July 22.

Trevor Crabb/Sean Rosenthal won both of their matches as the number three seed in the tournament. The duo first took down Ric Cervantes/Mike Stewart 2-0, (21-12, 21-12) followed by Ty Loomis/Maddison McKibbin 2-0, (21-16, 21-13).
