August 09, 1993

Karch Kiraly of San Clemente and Kent Steffes of Pacific Palisades teamed to win the $100,000 Miller Lite Open at Grand Haven, Mich.

Kiraly and Steffes beat Eduardo Anjinho and Jose Loiola, both of Brazil, 15-11, for the title. The winning team split $20,000.

It was the sixth consecutive tournament and 10th in the last 11 that Kiraly and Steffes have won.

They're the top-ranked team on the AVP tour entering the $150,000 Miller Lite Open, which starts Friday at north side of the Seal Beach Pier.
