  • Curious how many un-known Players will play for Cuba.

    Will Christine Anthony play for Curacao?

  • According to article from norceca.net experimental startng line-up for Cuba will be:
    S: Yamila Hernandez Santas
    OP: Melissa Vargas Abreu (also OH)
    OH: Sulian Matienzo Linares, Jennifer Alvarez Hernandez
    MB: Rosana Giel Ramos (C), Alena Rojas Orta (also OP)
    L: Emily Borell Cruz


    As we can see Giel still wants to play in Cuban NT, that's a surprise after episode in Azerbaijan ^^


    Unfortunately there is no info about their backups :(
    Another potential players in roster may be: Beatriz Sanchez Vilches (S), Dairilys Cruz (S/OP/OH), Dayesi Luis Ruiz (L/OH), Dayami Sanchez Savon (OH), Heidy Rodrgiguez Lopez (MB), Daymara Cajigal Lescay (MB/OH), but these girls are only my guesses.

  • What the hel* is Rosana Giel doing back there? She is so young and she would've have a great career in Europe

  • i wonder about Melissa Vargas....

    She is a great prospect and of course she'll improve because she's still a child ^^

  • Tonight starts first tournament in NORCECA zone and we have rosters of Cuba, Curacao, Haiti and Trinidad & Tobago.


    Cuban full roster: - with year of birth
    S: Yamila Hernandez Santas ('92), Gretell Elena Moreno Borrero ('95)
    OP: Melissa Vrgasa Abreu (also OH) ('99), Regla Rainerys Gracia Gonzalez ('93)
    OH: Sulian Caridad Matienzo Linares (also OP, L) ('94), Jennifer Yanet Alvarez Hernandez (also OP) ('93), Dayami Sanchez Savon (also L) ('94), Dayessi Luis Ruiz (also L) ('96)
    MB: Rosana Giel Ramos (C) ('92), Daymara Cajigal Lescay (also OH) ('92), Alena Rojas Orta (also OP) ('92)
    L: Emily Borrel Cruz ('92)


    We have some changes here: new pair of setters - Beatriz Vilches and Dairilys Cruz disappeared. New is also backup OP Gracia, rest was in NT.


    Bartek, Christine Anthony is in Curcao roster ^^


    Trinindad & Tobago again with only one Setter, so Captain Kelly-Anne Billingy will probably come again as backup setter (though she's OH). In roster we have players which played in Europe in last season: Krystle Esdelle (OP), Channon Thompson (OH/OP), Sinead Jack (MB) and Rheeza Grant (this time as Libero).


    Rosters are here (pages 6-9)

    She is unique.

    She is unique.


    u find on every lower Level an unique Player (s).


    In our 7th class Football league, there are also some unique Player for this league, but at the next Level, they are nothing Special anymore

  • To want to play in volleyball in Curacao and to have such results sometimes gives Her Unique title.

  • The matches from Norceca Quali in Colorado will have a live stream here - http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Vol…d-Championship-Qualifiers


    And the ones in Canada here - http://volleyballsourcemag.com…-championships-qualifiers

  • Pool Q in Cuba - Cuba wins with Curacao 3-0, while Trinidad & Tobago overcame Haiti 3-1. Vargas and Alvarez for Cuba played with really high spiking % :thumbup:

  • New bulletins from Pool O (USA) and Pool P (Dominican Republic) appeared, there we have full rosters of all teams:
    Pool O - Bulletin 1.
    Pool P - Bulletin 1.


    The most important rosters were already known, no changes there ^^ tomorrow we should have next bulletin from Pool S (Canada) - I wonder who'll play for Canada ^^

  • Today results from Pool O:
    Panama - Honduras 3-1 (25-17 20-25 25-13 25-16)
    USA - Guatemala 3-0 (25-10 25-18 25-11)


    USA played with starting line-up: Kreklow - Hodson - Ferrari - Webster - Reeves - Slay - Hahn (L) - it may be not correct, I could've switched MBs and OHs in rotation...
    Later other girls also got a chance.


    Matches in Cuba probably have ended, however there's no working livescore for this pool :whistle:


    In Pool P Nicaragua beats Salvador 3-0 (25-16 25-17 25-13).
    Match Dominican Republic - Gudaloupe should start in 20-30 minutes.


    All detailed stats I'll put here tomorrow - they'll probably publish next bulletins ^^

  • I don't know what's with match Dominicana - Guadeloupe - livescore doesn't work, maybe there was something wrong with schedule listed by NORCECA and match hasn't started yet :whistle:
