And, while “the Mom team” showed flashes of what may be a very successful pairing for the rest of the season, No. 3-seeded Wacholder and Walsh settled for fifth at Hermosa Beach after losing to Angie Akers and Tyra Turner, 21-11, 21-10, Saturday morning.

But Margie Walsh, Kerri?s mom, probably couldn?t help her disappointment after her daughter and Laguna Beach native Rachel Wacholder were knocked out in fifth place.
