Beach volleyball enters its second day of competition Sunday at the Rio Olympics, with a second American pairing hitting the sand.

WATCH LIVE: Beach volleyball, Day Two

Team USA’s Brooke Sweat and Lauren Fendrick begin their Pool A play with a 10 a.m. ET match-up against Poland’s Monika Brzostek and Kinga Kolosinska.

It’ll take a Top Two finish to go through to the knockout rounds automatically, though the top two third place teams will be branded “Lucky Losers” and move on.

The remaining four third place teams will be face-off, with two moving onto the bracket.
