HOLYOKE, Mass. (Oct 22, 2016) ~ Indoor volleyball player Danielle Scott and beach volleyball player Misty May- Treanor were inducted into the Volleyball Hall of Fame on Saturday, the culmination of two great careers.
Misty May-Treanor, a four-time beach Olympian, partnered with Kerri Walsh Jennings on the beach to become the first players to win three consecutive Olympic Games beach volleyball gold medals in 2004, 2008 and 2012. She won three straight FIVB World Championships titles in 2003, 2005 and 2007, while narrowly missing a fourth title in 2011 as she came away with silver. May-Treanor was equally adept at offense and defense on the sand as she won the FIVB Offensive Player of the Year three times (2005, 2007, 2008) and FIVB Defensive Player of Year twice (2007, 2008). She won 112 titles in her domestic and international career that netted $2.1 million in earnings. May-Treanor was named FIVB Sportsperson of the Year in back-to-back years in 2007 and 2008. She partnered with Holly McPeak early in her career as they played in the 2000 Sydney Games. May-Treanor was an elite indoor player as well, having served as the starting setter on Long Beach State University’s undefeated NCAA Division I Women’s Volleyball Championship team before electing to play beach.
