By Aaron Humes: They are only a salve to their wounded pride after coming so close to the overall title, but several of our top performers at the 19th Central American U-21 Female Volleyball Championship took home individual awards and medals.

Belize was denied the title after a five-set loss to Guatemala despite scoring more points overall, 17-14. Guatemala finished the tournament undefeated, with Honduras placing third, Nicaragua fourth and El Salvador fifth.

Fatoumata “Fatima” Camara Ramirez was named best attacker and best receiver, with teammate Gareth Bruce placing second in the former category. Iman Safa was named best setter and Sofia Solano best libero.

Most Valuable Player went to Guatemala’s Naomy Money, with Sofia Ibarra scooping best blocker and teammate Andrea Mendizabal second in that category. Maria Santa Cruz’s unblockable high jump serve won her best service and best scorer. Honduras’ Maria Marcela Roa was named best defender.

Volleyball president Allan Sharp has called for more investment in practice and training facilities, noting in the news this week that a national men’s team was preparing for an upcoming competition without a full-time facility. But he paid tribute to the acquisition of full-time coaches and training that helped our girls match the silver-winning senior side of 2019, who also played at home.

Congratulations to all on a job well done.
