It’s been another busy and highly productive week for Megan and Nicole McNamara.
The 21-year-old twins from Tsawwassen were in Toronto on Friday locking up a berth into the 2019 FIBV Beach Volleyball World Championships in Hamburg, Germany — June 28-July 7.
The McNamaras captured the trials event — defeating Taylor Pischke/Sophie Bukovec (21-19, 21-19) in the final. They will join two other Canadian teams in Germany that already had spots locked up based on their world rankings.
Just two days earlier, the sisters were busy in Los Angeles leading the UCLA Bruins to a pair of impressive wins.
The nation’s No. 1 ranked team and defending champion defeated No. 13 Loyola Marymount (4-1) and No. 2 USC (4-1) to improve to 23-0 on the season.
The South Delta Secondary graduates completed their perfect day with a 21-10, 21-19 win over USC’s Abril Bustamante and Tina Graudina in a showdown of No. 1 teams. It was the twins’ 17th consecutive win.
On Tuesday, the McNamaras were named Pac-12 Pair of the Week thanks to six court one wins. Their overall senior season record now stands at 18-1 with nine of the wins beings against opponents ranked in the top 10 in the nation.
The girls are equally impressive off the court, majoring in sociology with 3.8 GPAs.
Their university careers will conclude early next month at the NCAA Championships at Gulf Shores, Alabama.
