                                    HOLLY MCPEAK - On a Roll

Holly McPeak has been "on fire" on the Evian Tour since the start of the
1995 season.  She has been named as the WPVA's most valuable player and
top defender the past two seasons.  McPeak, who competed in the 1996
Atlanta Olympic Games where she finished fifth with Nancy Reno, has been
playing full-time on the WPVA circuit since 1991 when she was named the
Evian
Tour's rookie-of-the-year.  She needs $27,644.11 to become only the
second WPVA player to win $500,000 in their professional career.  McPeak
has earned 69.1 percent of her pro earnings ($326,325 of $472,355.89)
since April, 1995.  Here's McPeak's totals since 1995, including her
participation on the FIVB Beach Volleyball World Tour circuit.

As former high school and college teammates, Holly McPeak and Lisa Arce
are the "hot" team on the Evian Women's Pro Beach Tour after winning five
of the last six events (New York, Huntington Beach and Hawaii at the end
of 1996 and the 1997 season openers at Miami Beach and Deerfield Beach).  
Overall, the pair has posted six event wins in nine Evian Tour stops
together enroute to a 49-5 domestic match mark.  Arce and McPeak grew up
together in Manhattan Beach, Calif., and attended both Mira Costa High
School and Cal-Berkeley together.  McPeak, who finished her college
career at UCLA, has been named as the Evian Tour's most valuable player
and top defender the past two seasons.  Arce, the Evian Tour's top rookie
in
1994 and most improved player in 1995, finished fifth in earnings ($60,
125) last season.  Arce and McPeak also captured their first FIVB Beach
Volleyball World Tour event together in 1996 by winning the Pusan, Korea
stop August 25.  The Arce/McPeak tandem continued their successful ways
on the FIVB Tour by finishing fourth last November in Salvador, Brazil,
second
in February at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and third in March at Melbourne.  
Here's Arce/McPeak's  combined record for both domestic and international
events together:
