Smack Sportswear

The Leader In Beach And Indoor Volleyball Apparel

All Smack teams finish in the top 5, with Jenny Kropp and her partner winning the tournament.

(Torrance, CA) – May 29th, 2012 – The Memorial Day weekend was filled with celebration for Smack Sportswear. Kicking off summer, the first tour stop of the Jose Cuervo Pro Beach Volleyball Series – Florida Open in Fort Lauderdale, FL – was owned by the Smack female athletes. All four sponsored women finished in the top five.

Smack athlete, Brooke Sweat and her partner (Jennifer Fopma) took 5 th place. Smack athlete, Angie Akers and her partner (Brittany Hochevar) locked in a 3rd place tie. In a really tight semi-finals match (17/21 – 21/17 – 15/17) Smack athlete, Tyra Turner and her partner (Nicole Branagh) grabbed the other 3rd place slot. Smack Athlete, Jenny Kropp and her partner (Whitney Pavlik) took top honors, winning the tournament in phenomenal comeback style.

When top-seeded opponents, Brooke Hanson and Lauren Fendrick, quickly won the first set of the women’s championship match (21-14), no concern was seen on the faces of Pavlik or Kropp. With strong runs of 4-0 and 6-0, Pavlik and Kropp took back control to win the second set (21-18). From there, a 5-0 run in the third, powered by amazing defense from Pavlik, sealed the overall victory (14-21, 21-18, 15-10).

Smack Sportswear is proud to sponsor such talented athletes and be associated with the sport of volleyball. After the win this weekend and grabbing second place in the NVL season opener, Jenny Kropp stated, “Our purple Smack suits are definitely good luck!” To grab your own good luck (and good looking) bikinis, make sure to check out: Smack Sportswear at VB Superstore.
