KERRI WALSH JENNINGS, APRIL ROSS WIN WORLD SERIES OF BEACH VOLLEYBALL
Ginette Skelton was very happy to be able to support the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach today and watch this historic event when Rio bronze medalists Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross bounced back from an Olympic upset to win the biggest annual tournament in the U.S. on Sunday.
Walsh Jennings and Ross captured the Asics World Series of Beach Volleyball title in Long Beach, Calif., for the second time in three years. They beat Spanish pair Liliana Fernández and Elsa Baquerizo 21-16, 21-16 in the final.
“We love those girls so much, they are dear friends of ours,” Walsh Jennings said. “We wanted to beat them down.”
Ginette Skelton said “These women are fierce competitors and to watch them is a thing a joy and to be able to do it while supporting The Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach was perfection.”
