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.

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.

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 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.

When the final point was scored, Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers calmly turned and high-fived each other, acting as if they had just tapped a par putt rather than won the Hermosa Beach Open. But they've won four in a row now, so maybe it's starting to become routine. Dalhausser and Rogers, the top seeds, beat second-seeded Sean Scott and John Hyden, 18-21, 21-15, 15-9, and became the first team to win four straight Hermosa Beach Opens on Sunday. "I didn't realize four in a row has never been done.

Last year, Sean Scott and John Hyden reached the final of the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals' last event before it ran out of money and shut down its tour. They lost, and it stung more so than usual. "I remember going, 'If this was my last beach volleyball event, it would've been nice to go out with a win,' " Scott said. But entering this year, the duo came up with a scheme. "We knew to make a living at this sport in a transition year, we've got to win every tournament," Hyden said.

It's been an unbelievable season for Sean Scott and John Hyden, give or take one bad chicken sandwich, but Saturday was a rough time for one of the top U.S. beach volleyball teams. Scott and Hyden were bounced into the losers bracket of the Hermosa Beach Open after Matt Prosser and John Mayer beat them in the double-elimination tournament of the Jose Cuervo series, 16-21, 22-20, 15-13. The only thing preventing Scott and Hyden from winning every U.S. tournament they've entered this season is Scott's bout with food poisoning two weeks ago in a National Volleyball League event in Miami.

The best players in the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals were keeping it light Sunday at the Long Beach Open, despite not knowing what would come next for their sport. Before her championship match against No. 4-seeded Jenny Johnson Jordan and Annett Davis, No. 2-seeded Misty May-Treanor did a small pirouette with the help of her partner, Nicole Branagh. Adding to the dance move was May-Treanor's bikini bottom, which was bright pink with a ruffled skirt. May-Treanor and Branagh won the match, 21-16, 21-19, for their first title since they opened the season with a win at Fort Lauderdale on April 18. "I'll have to get more skirts," May-Treanor said.

The new world order on the AVP Nivea Tour looks a lot like the old world order, but with a twist. Sure, there is still one dominant team destined to make a title run every time they step on the court, but that team is now Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers wreaking havoc in the men's bracket instead of Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh on the women's side. And the women's side looks a lot like the men's did a few years ago — a parity-filled party filled with upsets and a pool of about six or seven teams that can win any week.
