Liz Masakayan has every reason to feel as if she has been through the ringer lately. Besides not being fully recovered from major knee surgery, she recently suffered food poisoning and was dragging at times Saturday in the $60,000 Evian National Beach Volleyball Championships at Hermosa Beach.

The scores were 15-12, 12-15, 15-13, 15-13. Despite the fact that Cal Poly (15-1) is ranked No.

Rock and Kirby combined for a WPVA team-record 12 victories and placed in the top four in the five other tour events. Rock, voted the tour's best spiker, and Kirby, the most valuable player and best setter, seemed like an unstoppable team. Until early July.
