By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Team Belize is in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, ready for the 5th Under-23 Central American Women’s Volleyball Championship which starts on Thursday.
The National Team left Belize on Tuesday to compete in the regional championship in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, said the Belize Volleyball Association (BVA). All seven Central American countries will be represented.
Team Belize was the first to present credentials and uniforms at the preliminary interviews on Wednesday morning. Head Coach Jose Fontes and Delegate Juana Avila met with the Control Committee of the Association of Central American Volleyball Federations (Afecavol).
Belize open the championship against Panama at 2:00 pm on Thursday.
On Friday, at 5:00 pm, our team plays Costa Rica.
