Dominican Republic NT 2017



  • Dominican Republic NT for the friendly matches against Brazil



    S: Niverka Marte - Camil Dominguez
    OPP: Ginna Mambru - Jeoselyna Rodriguez -
    Gaila Gonzalez
    OH: Brayelin Martinez - Yonkiara Peña - Erasma Moreno - Vielka Peralta
    MB: Yineiry Martinez - Annerys Vargas - Marianne Fersola
    L: Ana Binet - Larysmer Martinez



    De la Cruz and Castillo are resting, i don't know if Rivera is going to continue in the NT; It's nice to see OPP Jeoselyna Rodriguez back in the NT after a knee injury in 2014, MB Candida Arias is still recovering from a knee injury in 2016.



  • nice to see Rodriguez back :thumbsup:

  • I found another info on NORCECA and they have a little bit different line-up:


    As a whole group they mentioned:
    S: Niverka Marte, Camil Dominguez, Yocaty Perez
    OP: Jeoselina Rodríguez, Gina Mambrú, Gaila González
    OH: Brayelin Martínez (also OP), Yonkaira Peña, Erasma Moreno, Bethania de la Cruz, Prisilla Rivera
    MB: Yineiry Martinez, Annerys Vargas, Marianne Fersola (also OH), Cindy Rondon
    L: Ana Binet, Larysmer Martinez, Brenda Castillo


    in bold I put players available for friendlies against Brazil, we have 18 players together, 13 of them for friendlies, no Vielka Peralta there :wavy: team is prepairing for Pan-Am Cup in Peru (15-26.06)

  • So, the best ones won't come to Brazil. These friendly matches are going to be boring...

  • oh sidney, don't be so pessimistic... it'll be exciting. jineiry, brayelin and yonkaira are very exciting, young players.


    i'm surprised annerys is still playing! she must be a grandmother by now... she's over 44, no?


    no lisvel eve... and no winnifer.


    com'on, kondzio, fersola is an OH only in kwiek's crazy dreams.

  • I don't like this NT. They are always trying trying trying and hardly ever reach something important...not having Castillo, Betania and others on the roster just makes this team even worse.


    I'm surprised also that Vargas is still playing...I thought she had retired from volleyball already...it has been many years since she is not playing in high level anymore.

  • well, the BRA team for these matches don't look too hot either so it'll all be ok... ;-)


    yes, without de la cruz, castillo and rivera, they'll struggle with pass reception, but brayelin has improved a lot as a passing OH.

  • Vargas just became NT member really quickly :D it was around 20 years ago :!:


    ossubtus, maybe in his weird dreams, but I saw not only Fersola as OH, but also Eve (she did the best from MBs as OH/OP IMHO :D), Vargas or even Rondon :lol: both Vargs and Rondon were just a nightmare, comparing with them Fersola wasn't bad ^^ but having only 3 MBs, excluding injured Arias and absent Eve (it seems she's far from her prime times before injury), Marianne will be MB without any doubts ^^


    and I wonder why libero Fernandez isn't there :whistle: it looked that she's no. 3 behind Castillo and Binet and now Larysmer Martinez replaced her

  • Well, age is a very special matter with Dominican players :D In the end only Vargas and her parents will know her real age ;)

    like with few others: Castillo, Rondon, Nunez... :whistle: :lol:

    Lisvel Eve Castillo is pregnant, that´s why she isnt in the roster.


    Btw, I have never seen Fersola playing as OH :white:
    Binet is a good back row specialist, what a pity she is wasted as libero. Winnifer Fernández was the perfect back up for Castillo, it is really weird she hasnt been called.




    like with few others: Castillo, Rondon, Nunez... :whistle: :lol:


    :rolll: :rolll: :rolll:

  • i saw a little bit of a match in which fersola started as OH (yelstin cup?). she was terrible, she couldn't pass or attack a high ball. she was soon replaced.


    lisvel eve sometimes plays as passing OPP, and she at least can get some kills, but i don't think it's a good position for her. the weird thing is, why don't they set her fast balls? sometimes "true" MBs will come in as a sub as an OPP, but they still get fast balls (like back slides), rather than high balls. i don't know if eve does the back slide though.


    i heard a comment on tv once but never saw it, but even danni scott had to play as OH once for the USA during a GP match due to injuries...

  • ossubtus, maybe You saw Vargas not Fersola then :D

  • The Norceca page often has wrong info; Both Yocaty Perez and Vielka Peralta aren't part of the NT they will play with the U20 and U23 team the summer howerver Peralta will play with the NT in the friendly matches against brasil, she's a very good defensive OH.

    I also thought that Vargas would retired last year, she recently got married but it seems she's not planning in getting pregnant beacuse she's been training hard to be part of the NT this summer and she'll be needed because of Eve Mejia Pregnancy and Candida Arias Injury so MBs would her, Martinez and Fersola; I read that Winifer Fernandez wasn't training with the NT for personal reasons and join the training sessions few day ago so thats why she's not in brasil and in her place is Binet and Larismer Marttinez (u23 libero) btw i think that Binet is the better passer of the NT even better than Castillo which is what the team needs, i've never liked winifer.

    Vargas just became NT member really quickly :D it was around 20 years ago :!:


    ossubtus, maybe in his weird dreams, but I saw not only Fersola as OH, but also Eve (she did the best from MBs as OH/OP IMHO :D), Vargas or even Rondon :lol: both Vargs and Rondon were just a nightmare, comparing with them Fersola wasn't bad ^^ but having only 3 MBs, excluding injured Arias and absent Eve (it seems she's far from her prime times before injury), Marianne will be MB without any doubts ^^

    Fersola as OH i think is mistake of the info, she's barely a bench MB, i think her position would be soon replace with a younger MB like U23 Hinojosa.

    i saw a little bit of a match in which fersola started as OH (yelstin cup?). she was terrible, she couldn't pass or attack a high ball. she was soon replaced.


    lisvel eve sometimes plays as passing OPP, and she at least can get some kills, but i don't think it's a good position for her. the weird thing is, why don't they set her fast balls? sometimes "true" MBs will come in as a sub as an OPP, but they still get fast balls (like back slides), rather than high balls. i don't know if eve does the back slide though.

    Lisvel Eve has better passing than De La Cruz and Martinez and could be usefull in blocking, she has already played as an OH in The Peruvian League

  • kondzio, how can you doubt a fellow DOM NT fan? it was fersola for sure. yeltsin cup. ask your friend kwiek.

    btw. Kwiek is probably Polish name :D so she probably played as OH there as well, I remember she played on the left wing also during WGP, but I have no idea in which year :whistle: there were some games when either De La Cruz or Rivera or even Eve couldn't play and someone had to play as OH, but nothing could be worse there than Rondon :rolll:
    anyway, I wonder how will they play with such roster vs. Brazil and during Pan-Am and WGP ^^ and I hope Rodriguez will get some playing time, at least as backup :roll:

  • kwiek is a polish name! that explains why he's so crazy... :-) . just kidding. he has done a good job but he does have some eccentric ideas.


    i can't recall or find the exact match, i just tried to find it on laola but can't find it. i swear, fersola played as OH. never seen vargas as OH.
