MOTHERLODE VOLLEYBALL CLASSIC
Meador & Martin Snare First MotherLode Title Thursday;
Lee & Shaw Snare Third-Straight Men's 50 Crown;
31st Event Attracts Competitors from 31 states and Switzerland

ASPEN, COLO. - Samantha Meador and Wendy Martin captured the first
title of the 31st MotherLode Volleyball Classic here Thursday (August
28) while Jon Lee and Don Shaw returned to the podium for the
third-straight year as more than 600 teams from 32 states and
Switzerland have entered the "most comprehensive" beach volleyball
tournament in North America.

Considered the No. 1 Pro-Am tournament in the United States, the
MotherLode Volleyball Classic runs through Labor Day (September 1) as
the event features the top men's and women's classes will feature
several of the nation's top sand players as five "glorious late summer
days" of two-person volleyball..

The MotherLode Volleyball Classic has attracted players from Alabama,
Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa,
Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan,
Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nebraska, Nevada,
New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, South Dakota,
Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

Seeded second in the 12-team women's masters, Meador (Houston, Tex.)
and Martin (Tampa, Fla.) outlasted third-seeded Linda Hager-Arndt
(Denver, Colo.) and Kris Bredehoft (Englewood, Colo.) 16-14 in the
title match at Koch Lumber Park. Meador and Martin, who had to rally
from a 14-13 deficit against the Coloradoans, won all four of their
matches Thursday.

Thursday's title was Martin's second MotherLode crown as she won a
Coed A title last year with Keith Jones (Nashville, Tenn.) After
losing their opening match Thursday, Hager-Arndt and Bredehoft had to
win five contender's bracket games, to advance to the final.

The top-seeded Lee (Santa Barbara, Calif.) and Shaw (Menlo Park,
Calif.) scored a 15-2 win over second-seeded Dave Lawless (Denver,
Colo.) and Ron Smith (Denver, Colo.) for the Men's 50 and over title
at Koch Lumber Park. It was the second win Thursday for Lee and Shaw
over their Colorado rivals and the Californians defeated Lawless and
Smith 15-13 in the finals of the championship bracket on the Chart
House Courts. Lee has now won six MotherLode titles, including three
men's master's crown with George Zebot (1994-96).

Third-seeded Larry Sutliffe (Denver, Colo.) and Brian Richter (Denver,
Colo.) faced fourth-seeded Bill Noon (Lawton, Okla.) and Joe Gagnon
(Santa Barbara, Calif.) late Thursday evening for the men's 45 and
over crown. The 45 and over match was also a replay of an earlier
game Thursday as Sutiffe and Richter defeated Noon and Gagnon 15-8 on
the Koch Lumber courts.

Play continues Friday with the 36-team men's master's competition.
Eric Anderson (Los Gatos Calif.) and Andrew Cavanaugh (Santa Barbara,
Calif.) won the 2002 MotherLode Men's Master, but return this season
with different partners. Anderson will team with Kent Kitchel, who
missed last year's event due to injuries. Anderson and Kitchel won
five MotherLode master titles together in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999 and
2001. Kitchel also won two MotherLode masters with Mark Tanner in
1992 and 1993. Christian Larson will be Cavanaugh's partner this
season.

Record MotherLode crowds in 2002 saw Colorado State University
products Angela Knopf (from Troutdale, Ore.) and Krista Swartzendruber
(Glenwood Springs, Colo.) win the women's Open title at the 30th
MotherLode Volleyball Classic. In the men's Open, Skyler Davis
(Irving, Tex.) and Brian Soldano (Isle of Palms, S.C.) captured the
crown.

Knopf and Swartzendruber are expected to defend their women's title
while Soldano returns with new partner Dave Smith (Culver City,
Calif.). A total of 74 men's and 27 women have entered the "opens"
this season as the two classes highlight the play in the 18-division
event. The Men's Master's field has 37 entries and has become the
United States' No. 1 event for players 37 and older.

Seeded last in the 26-team women's Open field, Knopf and
Swartzendruber had to rally twice in the title match to defeat
sixth-seeded Natalie Sime and Dawn Tischauser 18-16. Davis and
Soldano finished first among the 67 teams entered by defeating
33rd-seeded Bryan Gibson (Birmingham, Ala.) and Jones (Nashville,
Tenn.) twice on Labor Day 2002, including a 15-6 win in the title
match.

Late registration will be accepted, in person (space permitting), day
of check-in for the respective divisions; or, at the pre-check-in desk
in Aspen Friday (August 29) at Koch Lumber Park 12-6 p.m., or Saturday
starting at 8 a.m. The late registration fee is $80. For more

The MotherLode Volleyball Classic's "open" divisions feature beach
professionals, top amateurs, USA National Team members, and Legends of
the Game competing on the main championship sand courts at Koch Lumber
Park. In addition to the 1,400 participants, the MotherLode
Volleyball Classic attracts thousands of spectators that flock to the
Aspen-area every Labor Day Weekend to attend "the best volleyball
party in the country."

Produced by MotherLode Volleyball Productions of Aspen, "The 'Lode"
incorporates the best of traditional beach volleyball creating the
"old time" sense of joy and excitement for the sport. It is a "must
attend" event for the serious volleyball aficionado - providing an
exciting, competitive end-of-the-season volleyball event surrounded by
the beauty and excitement of Aspen.
