On Sunday afternoon, Kerri Walsh Jennings added another title to her list of career accomplishments. Walsh Jennings and April Ross, who have won three of seven FIVB World Tour Grand Slams this seasons, won the World Series of Beach Volleyball title in Long Beach, California. 

Walsh Jennings and Ross defeated Agatha Bednarczuk and Barbara Seixas of Brazil.

The final ended in straight sets — 21-17 and 21-17.

Walsh Jennings, a three-time Olympic champion, joined up with the Olympic silver medalist, Ross, after Walsh Jennings’ long-time partner Misty May-Treanor retired.
