  • I thought Melissa Vargas was OH.


    And, Brazil is playing?! Weird...

  • I thought Melissa Vargas was OH.


    And, Brazil is playing?! Weird...

    Vargas in last seasons played some games as non-receiving OH, but mostly she played as OP, while Alvarez and Matienzo were starting OHs :wavy:
    well, there's no Brazil :!:


    Since they host the tournament I would expect to see them with full force.

    imaging Dominicans in full force it may be like this:


    S: Marte, Domiguez
    OP: Mambru
    OH: De La Cruz (also OP), B.Martinez (also OP), Rivera, Pena, Binet (defensive specialist)
    MB: Vargas, Eve-Castillo, Fersola/Arias/J.Martinez (2 out of 3)
    L: Castillo, Fernandez

  • What a show is watching Hancock's serves. She makes monster damage in opponent reception.


    Probably the best server I've seen in many years watching volleyball. Although it's true there are not the best receptions in the world in this Panamerican Cup.
