Former Luers Player Makes Final of AVP Chicago

Cut and pasted with permission from Fort Wayne African-American Independent Woman blog here.

Angie Akers formerly of Fort Wayne, Indiana and her partner, Brooke Hanson could not beat the veterans, Annett Davis and Jenny Johnson Jordan in the McDonald's AVP Chicago Open presented by Nautica.

Despite being the big target in a field that didn't include Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, Johnson Jordan and Davis never blinked. In workmanlike fashion, they took out Angie Akers and Brooke Hanson, 21-16, 24-22, to claim the Chicago Open on Sunday and split a winner's share of $28,000.
