Cannon, Sponcil notch long-awaited AVP win at Hermosa Beach Open

HERMOSA BEACH — Terese Cannon and Sarah Sponcil entered the 2022 AVP Tour Hermosa Beach Open having played 45 AVP tournaments between them.

So win No. 1 was a long time coming — for both.

With a two-set win over Kelly Cheng and Betsi Flint on Sunday, Cannon and Sponcil — the top seed in the women’s tournament — notched a long-awaited win on the AVP tour.

“I’ve been dreaming about this for a really long time so to actually go out and execute, it feels amazing,” Cannon said.

Sponcil said the emotions came out after the win.

“To do it with [Cannon] is such a treat,” Sponcil said. “I love playing with her and I hope there’s many more to come.”

Cannon and Sponcil became teammates just this year. In their second AVP tournament after placing fifth at the Austin Open earlier this year, they found a winning formula, rolling through the Hermosa Beach lineup.
