2019 NORCECA Senior Women's Championship (San Juan, PR, OCT 6-14)

  • After 4 years, the Championship gathered 8 TOP NORCECA teams again to fight for the only ONE queen crown


    The pools are

    A: Puerto Rico (Host), Canada, Cuba, Costa Rica

    B: USA, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago

    i may not be the tallest,
    the fastest, or the strongest,
    but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
    to be me...

  • A total of 17 players of Puerto Rico are preparing the championship, 3 more will be cut soon.


    S (3): Natalia Valentín, Raymerialy Santos, Wilmarie Rivera

    OP (3): Paulina Prieto Cerame, Shirley Ferrer, Génesis Collazo

    OH (5): Aury Cruz, Karina Ocasio, Stephanie Enright, Pilar Victoriá, Legna Hernández

    MB (4): Diana Reyes, Neira Ortiz, Ana Sofía Jusino, Paola Rojas

    L (2): Shara Venegas, Normarie Vélez


    USA has qualified for 2020 Tokyo, and DOM has qualified to pre-olympic tournament in January 2020, as the top ranked team in NORCECA, therefore, the rest 6 participating teams will fight for the last 3 vacancies to the pre.

    i may not be the tallest,
    the fastest, or the strongest,
    but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
    to be me...

  • so many tournaments... why not just make this the olympic qualifier????


    hope PUR is back at their strongest... the team that played the IOQT and panam games wasn’t too impressive.

    Yes. I agree.

    however, pre-olympic is always the independt tournament, not linked with continental championships.


    In 2017, the NORCECA made the compromise with the FIVB, to combine the championship as the qualifier. IMO. that was really stupid decision ever. NORCECA should have selected the best 6 ranked teams of the continental championships, rather than directly selecting the winner from 6 groups. The following stages of the championships were completely with no meaning and caused the tournament rediculously castrated.

    i may not be the tallest,
    the fastest, or the strongest,
    but at least i can do one thing better than anyone else,
    to be me...

  • Dominican Republic qualified for the NORCECA OGQT by winning the silver medal at the NORCECA Champions Cup (the USA team won the gold, but they are already qualified for the OG, so the second placed team took the ticket).

  • My team would be:


    S: Natalia Valentín, Wilmarie Rivera

    OH: Aury Cruz, Stephanie Enright, Pilar Victoriá, Legna Hernández

    MB: Diana Reyes, Neira Ortiz, Paola Rojas*

    OP: Karina Ocasio, Paulina Prieto

    L: Shara Venegas, Normarie Vélez


    My starters


    *I can't pick among the middles: I like the 3 of them. They can all start and I'd let play the 2 with the best shape.


    The president of the federation said that the doors of the NT are always open for Sheila Ocasio: her suspension for doping is over in 2020.

  • even TTO with B team? :gone:

  • from the other thread, it seems US and PUR have won their groups and are through to the semis.


    QFs are: CUB x DOM and CAN x MEX.


    strange that US and DOM were drawn into the same group, when they are the top 2 teams...


    too bad we couldn't find any streams for these matches. maybe they'll show up on YT in the future...

  • i don't know, just started watching it now... the match was yesterday.


    interesting PUR strategy, they moved ocasio to passing OH, so she can play along with prieto... not sure i like that, ocasio is not so good as receiver. no santana but reyes is back...
