Dominica copped silver in the second round of the competition

The Senior Men’s National Volleyball team got off to a solid start in Set 1 in the final match against St. Vincent last night in the World Volleyball Championship Qualifiers winning the first set 25-22.

The joy was short-lived, however; as St. Vincent regained the composure they exhibited throughout the tournament to win the next 3 sets and the match 25-19, 25-18, 25-21 taking the much-coveted spot in the 3rd round of the Qualifiers.

Despite capturing second place the talent of the team did not go unnoticed as Yahn Florent copped the award for Best Blocker.

The second men’s team to advance to the 3rd round will be determined when St. Lucia, French St. Marteen, Dutch St. Marteen and Anguilla meet over the weekend.

In spite of the results, we extend thanks and congratulations to the guys who represented Dominica at the tournament.
