Santa Barbara duo wins volleyball tournament

The team of Jeff Minc and Aaron Wachtfogel won the Lake Tahoe Beach Volleyball AAA Tournament at Zephyr Cove on Saturday.

Minc and Wachtfogel, who live in Santa Barbara, beat Kjell Nilsson and Tate Walthal of Santa Cruz in a final match played in front of a crowd of 300 people.

The winners went undefeated, while Nilsson and Walthal lost their first game and were forced to battle through the losers’ bracket in the double-elimination tournament. Sean Rosenthal and Larry Whitt, who play as a team on the professional circuit, split up and produced disappointing results. Whitt teamed up with a Chris Isaacs to come in fifth, while Rosenthal, playing with Dale Smith, finished seventh.
