Walsh ventures on

 

Three-time Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings needs a new teammate for her attempt at a fourth Summer Games. She’s asked London silver medalist April Ross to be her partner for 2016. Walsh Jennings was teamed with Misty May-Treanor for the past three Olympics. But May-Treanor has retired. Walsh Jennings said she’s not done. She had her third child this spring. She said she’s working to return next month where she’ll play with Whitney Pavlik. Ross played with Jennifer Kessy in London and they’re together on the international tour this year. Partnerships usually reshuffle two years prior to the Olympics so the partners can develop chemistry while they attempt to qualify for the Summer Games. – Associated Press
