Misty May-Treanor announced, on her site, that she will be teaming up with Nicole Branagh for the upcoming 2010 beach volleyball season.

I am very excited about the upcoming year. For those that aren’t aware, Kerri is expecting her second child (Congratulations to her and Casey), so I will be teaming up with Nicole Branagh. Nicole is such a dynamic player, it is going to be fun.

The stage is set and it will be an interesting year on the AVP Tour.

Congratulations to Kerri Walsh on her second child!
