(Huntington Beach, CA). The AVP Huntington Beach men’s final was as exciting as the women’s was one-sided, Jake Gibb and Casey Patterson held off Taylor and Trevor Crabb, 21-19, 23-21, for their second Huntington Beach title in three years.

Gibb/Patterson are working towards their Olympic goal, the final was a great test by a team that’s considered the best young team on the AVP tour. Gibb/Patterson came back from deficits in both sets and had several long rallies featuring one great dig or save after another.

The Crabb brothers, who starred at Long Beach State, announced their arrival with a wild win over Gibb/Patterson in the quarterfinals at the AVP Manhattan Beach event, 29-31, 21-17, 16-14.

Next on the tour for the AVP is Cincinnati, and the domestic tour will return to Southern California July 14-17 with the Manhattan Beach Open. For more information about the AVP Tour schedule visit http://www.avp.com
