Dominica fails to capture medal position in volleyball championshipPress Release - Monday, September 10th, 2012 at 7:44 AM
Dominica suffered yet another humiliating defeat at the 2012 Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Championship in St. Lucia. This time it was at the hands of Antigua in the bronze medal match.
As if to prove that Sunday night’s dismal performance was no fluke, the Dominica team again demonstrated poor performances in service reception, attacks, blocking, floor defense, services and virtually every area of volleyball.
Antigua took advantage of this flat-footed, lackadaisical performance to grab the bronze medal.
Meanwhile, St. Lucia went on to defeat rivals St. Kitts (3-1) in the gold medal match. With the win, St. Lucia advances to the NORCECA continental finals set for 2013 in the U.S.A.
Dominica’s Ray Robinson captured the Best setter award.
Next up for the Dominica men is the second leg of the World Cup Qualifiers in 2013.
