      One major upset shakes up the Huntington Beach scene

      By: AVP Press Release, on 06/04/2010
      http://www.avp.com/News/2010/06/Huntington-Beach-Friday-Release.aspx

      Misty May-Treanor has won in Huntington Beach five times during her
      illustrious career, and based on how she kicked off the AVP
      NIVEA Tour Huntington Beach Open Presented by Bud Light Lime on
      Friday, she could be on her way to a sixth.

      If she were to hit a half-dozen wins here this weekend, it would
      mark her first Huntington Beach victory with partner Nicole Branagh. On
      Friday, May-Treanor and Branagh swept their first two matches of the
      tournament, beating 32nd-seeded Kim Whitney and Carrie Wright, 21-13,
      21-13 and toppling 17th-seeded Jennifer Snyder and Christal Morrison,
      21-11, 22-20.

      The top-seeded men’s team of Todd Rogers and Phil Dalhausser also
      swept their first two matches as they seek to defend their men’s title
      and win Huntington Beach for the fourth time in six years. They beat
      32nd-seeded Ed Lunnen and Mike Nelson,
      21-15, 21-13, and then dispatched the 17th-seeded team of Jonathan
      Acosta and Ty Loomis, 21-19, 21-13.

      The Huntington Beach Open continues Saturday starting at 9 a.m.
      and runs through Sunday on the south side of the Huntington Beach Pier.
      Tickets are available on-site or online here.

      Newport Beach native April Ross and San Juan Capistrano’s Jen
      Kessy, seeded second in the women’s bracket, appeared to be clicking on
      all cylinders Friday, as they won both of their matches easily. They
      beat 31st-seeded Sarah Day and Kristin Ursillo, 21-11, 21-11, and then
      18th-seeded Kristen Batt and Brooke Sweat, 21-7, 21-11.

      One significant upset did shake up the men’s side. Third-seeded
      Matt Fuerbringer and Nick Lucena dropped their first-round match, 21-16,
      15-21, 20-18, to 30th-seeded Seth Burnham (Harbor High School, UCLA)
      and Aaron Mansfield (Homestead High School, UCSB)
      , and will
      have to battle all the way back through the contenders’ bracket if they
      hope to advance to the final. Burnham and Mansfield dropped their next
      two matches.

      Play will continue through Sunday, with the women’s final
      scheduled for 11 a.m. PT and the men’s at 1 p.m. The women’s final will
      be televised live on ESPN2, and the men’s final will air live on ABC.
