Arce and McPeak shared the $11,000 first-place prize in the $50,000
Evian Open on Mustang Beach in Las Colinas as the pair extended
their winning streak to 18-straight matches.

Winners of eight of the last 10 events on the Evian Tour, Arce and
McPeak have now won 10 professional beach volleyball titles.  The
win over Kirby and Reno was the second in a title match this season
as Arce and McPeak posted a 15-12 win over the Kirby/Reno tandem in
Miami Beach, Fla., April 6.

The 59-minute title match featured 59 side-outs, eight ties and
five lead changes as Arce and McPeak won the title on their fifth-

The biggest lead by either team was three in the match at 12-9 for
Arce and McPeak as Reno and Kirby tied the match at 12-12.  With
Arce and McPeak leading 13-12, Reno's dink attempt on two went into
the net to make it 14-12

Kirby and Reno, who shared $8,100 for second-place, advanced to the
championship match with a 15-8 win over 17th-seeded Liz Masakayan
and Elaine Youngs.  A member of the 1996 United States National
Team that competed in the Atlanta Olympic Games, Youngs was playing
in her first pro beach doubles event.

Arce and McPeak advanced to the finals with a 15-4 win over third-
seeded Barbra Fontana and Linda Hanley, who finished fourth at the
1996 Atlanta Olympic Games.

15-12 in the third-place match.  Fontana and Hanley, who split
$4,100 for fourth, had finished second to Arce and McPeak in the
