Sean Scott and John Hyden opened this year's Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series with a win in its first event in May in Florida. It wasn't unusual. Scott and Hyden are one of the top U.S. duos in the sport. That win was their 14th together since 2009. But after that event, Scott suffered a lower-back injury that kept their team from a podium finish in each of the next two Jose Cuervo events. On Sunday, they made their return, winning the Hermosa Beach Open, where the top-seeded tandem took down the second-seeded pair of Brad Keenan and John Mayer, 21-19, 21-23, 15-9.

Kerri Walsh Jennings has three Olympic gold medals and three children. She's 35 years old and has won 112 beach volleyball tournaments, tied for most in the history of the sport with her now-retired former partner Misty May-Treanor. And still a loss makes Walsh Jennings angry enough to kick some sand and speak of her severe disappointment at dropping a semifinal match Sunday at the AVP Championship beach volleyball tournament in Huntington Beach. "I'm not happy," Walsh Jennings said.

The Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series hits the South Bay this weekend, when 32 men's and 32 women's teams will be vying for a piece of the $100,000 purse in the Hermosa Beach Open, Friday through Sunday. None of the 2012 Olympic qualifiers will be competing, as they've been overseas since June, but several notable players will be present. On the women's side, Jenny Kropp and partner Whitney Pavlik, runners-up in Hermosa last year, have won the first three Cuervo tournaments this year in dominating fashion.

It was an afternoon of goodbyes on the sand. Of course, they weren't long goodbyes on Sunday in Huntington Beach because beach volleyball remains a wonderfully efficient sport. If you blink, you might miss a turning point. In short, one team finished the domestic beach volleyball season with another victory, capping off a nearly flawless run on the Jose Cuervo tour. Two men put an indelible stamp of ownership on Southern California beachfront, a hat trick of wins this summer: Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and now Huntington Beach.

Other than flying a kite, few outdoor activities seem enjoyable once the late-afternoon winds kick up along the Huntington Beach shoreline. Nick Lucena and Sean Scott weren't complaining, however. They took advantage of the unpredictable gusts to post one of the bigger upsets Friday afternoon on the opening day of the Huntington Beach Open beach volleyball tournament. The seventh-seeded pair rallied to defeat second-seeded Matt Fuerbringer and Casey Jennings, 18-21, 21-13, 15-9, to advance to this morning's winner's bracket semifinal against third-seeded John Hyden and Brad Keenan.

At the Manhattan Beach Open this year, an adage proved true: different year, same result. Sean Scott and John Hyden repeated as the men's champions of the professional beach volleyball event Sunday, and Jenny Kropp and Whitney Pavlik did the same on the women's side. Both teams won the event, which is part of the Jose Cuervo Professional Beach Volleyball Series, for the first time last year. Because of those wins, their names were engraved on a plaque that was put on the Manhattan Beach Pier's Volleyball Walk of Fame during a ceremony Friday.

The American duo is back beneath Southern California sunshine, playing more than 5,000 miles from London and the shocking Olympics loss they suffered this month. But the sting of Jake Gibb's and Sean Rosenthal's early upset at the Olympics in men's beach volleyball did not stay across the pond. It still lingers, even as they start in the main draw competition Saturday at the Manhattan Beach Open, in which the duo is the top-seeded of 32 men's teams. "London was hard and I'm still digesting it," Gibb said of his and Rosenthal's loss as the fourth-seeded team to a 17th-seeded Latvian team.
