DR wins U23 Pan Am Cup for third time

Two-time defending champions, the Dominican Republic women’s U23 volleyball team has defeated Argentina to win the U23 Women’s Volleyball Pan American Cup in San Vicente de Cañete, Peru.

The win was with a sweeping victory over Argentina 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-19) in front of a crowd of more than 4,000 fans at Lolo Fernandez Coliseum on Sunday, 25 September 2016. The Dominican team had lost to Argentina 3-1 (21-25, 25-17, 29-27, 25-22) in the round-robin.

Norceca reported that the Dominican team now has defeated Brazil, Colombia and Peru in the finals of the three celebrations of the event, which is always held in Peru.
Brayelin Martinez finished the match with 20 points, followed by her sister Jineiry Martinez who had 13, including three blocks.

The Dominican team had ended with a 4-1 round-robin record (losing only to Argentina), the same as Argentina and Peru, but with a better points-difference ration for the top seeding ahead of the semifinals.

With its win, the Dominican Republic secured a spot in next year’s FIVB U23 World Championship. Argentina won the second available spot that was contested at the Pan Am Cup.

Brayelin Martínez of the Dominican Republic won her second consecutive Most Valuable Player title at a U23 Pan Am Cup. She also won the award in 2014. Another Dominican, Yonkaira Peña was the winner in 2012.

Winifer Fernández, from the Dominican team, was the best digger of the event.
