Orange County's Jen Kessy and April Ross advanced to the beach volleyball quarterfinals Friday with a two-set win over Switzerland.

Kessy and Ross, who are making their Olympics debut, defeated Switzerland's Simone Kuhn and Nadine Zumkehr 21-15, 21-19. The Americans will take on a team from Brazil or the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals, which begin Sunday.

Ross, born in Costa Mesa, now resides in Newport Beach. She won the 2009 World Championships with Kessy, of San Juan Capistrano.
