    De la Cruz establishes aces mark in Puerto Rico
    The Dominican Republic's Bethania De la Cruz has established a new record of serving aces in the Puerto Rican Women's Superior League.


    Playing for her Caguas team, De la Cruz posted four aces among her 22 points in the 25-18, 25-23, 18-25, 25-23 victory over Mayaguez last Wednesday and in the process surpassed the old mark of 50 set by Puerto Rico's Elaine Lopez in 1995.


    The powerful outside hitter then extended her record to 56 by scoring five more aces in her next outing, a 23-25, 25-19, 25-22, 25-19 victory over Ponce two days later when she finished with 18 points.


    De la Cruz, who is the league's leading scorer 384 points from 76 sets played, is a strong candidate to win the Most Valuable Player award for the regular season. Her Caguas side have secured first place in the standings with a 19-2 record with one more match to play before the start of the play-offs.

    “I am very grateful for the recognition,” Thon said. “I was very happy to learn that I won the award. It is an honor for hard work, but the goal is always the performance of the team.”


    Thon becomes the third member of the Cowgirls to earn the Rookie of the Year award in the past four years.


    The rookie collected 70 total points (60 first place votes, nine second place and two third) in the award voting ahead Daly Santana of the Toa Llaneras Baja (45 points) and Natalia Valentin of the Ponce Lions (15 points) to earn the honor.
