TORRANCE, Calif., June 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Smack Sportswear (Smack), the leading brand of custom-designed volleyball apparel for both indoor and beach volleyball players alike, today announced that April Ross and Jen Kessy have agreed to wear Smack's new 2011 Active Beachwear lineup and will show off their new Smack suits as they guard the number-one spot on the FIVB Swatch World Tour 2011 rankings. Kessy and Ross will also appear on the cover of Spike Volleyball's newly revamped catalogue, July 2011 edition.
Earlier this month in Rome, the duo became the first U.S. team to advance from the round of 32 in the World Tour Women's bracket after defeating Canadian pair Heather Bansley and Elizabeth Maloney. FIVB's World Tour rankings marks the Smack-sporting team as ranked #1 in the world according to earned points.
"We really like the suits' athletic fit and style," praises April Ross. "Can't wait to show them off as we tour around the world!"
The new line acclaimed by #1 team Ross/Kessy allows consumers to customize their beach package and select from five exclusive suit styles, or mix and match. Custom beach uniforms can be paired with tanks, shorts, visors and more.
Bill Sigler, founder and owner of Smack Sportswear, notes, "Our clothes are designed and tested by the top athletes in the world ... then distributed to the masses. We're really excited to have Jen and April be a testament to that."
