Wacholder, Turner fifth in Tampa


Rachel Wacholder and Tyra Turner were knocked out of title contention in quarterfinal round play Sunday at the Assn. Of Volleyball Professionals Tampa Open in Florida.

Wacholder (Laguna Beach High, Class of 1993) and Turner, the open’s No. 2 seed, battled No. 8 seed Annett Davis/Jenny Johnson Jordan with a berth in the semifinal round on the line, and it was Davis and Johnson who rallied from a 19-21 loss to win two straight, 21-14, 15-12, to advance.

Davis and Johnson fell in three games to eventual women’s champion, No. 1 Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh in the semifinal round.

Wacholder and Turner began the tournament with a 21-14, 21-15 sweep of No. 15 Keao Burdine/Nancy Mason in winner’s bracket play. Next came a sweep of No. 7 Holly McPeak/Logan Tom, 21-18, 21-18, but in the fourth round of winner’s bracket play, the duo was upended by No. 3 Nicole Branagh/Elaine Youngs in a tight match, 25-23, 16-21, 15-13.
