This episode of SANDCAST: Beach Volleyball with Tri Bourne and Travis Mewhirter is our always popular fan question segment, a Christmas special! Savvy Simo is typically our lovely host of these episodes, but she’s been out of town for a bit, coaching at SOB Volley Vacations and spending time down in New Orleans. So it’s just the boys, answering as many of your (nearly 100!) questions as we could, including, but certainly not limited to:

  • Who are the new partnerships for 2023 and the Paris Olympics?
  • Are we buying into the Kelly Cheng and Sara Hughes hype?
  • Three stops to keep and three stops to drop from the AVP season
  • If we had to sum up our season in one word, what would it be?

So much fun on this episode, and so much fun chatting volley for all you listeners again this year. We love you guys, appreciate you guys, and hope you have the merriest of Christmases!
