Belize falls shy of a medal in the juvenile Central American volleyball championship

Belize’s junior female national volleyball team concluded their participation in the 15th Women’s U-20 Central American Championship just shy of a medal.

Team Belize suffered back-to-bad defeats, first by Guatemala on Saturday and then by Costa Rica on Sunday to finish with a 3-3 record and a fourth place finish with a total of 12 points.


The bronze medal went to Costa Rica who finished with a 4-2 record and 21 points.

The silver medal went to Nicaragua who finished with a 5-1 record and a total of 24 points.

Guatemala won their second consecutive title of champions of the Women’s U-20 tournament with a perfect 6-0 record and a total of 29 points.

The Coach of Team Belize Lupita Quan is quoted as saying “in life you always want more, I know this is our best ranking ever, but I felt we could’ve done more. We are lacking mental preparation which only comes from more experience with international events and I wish they can start playing harder earlier and not later on tournaments.”
