Sports Wrap-up

Puerto Rico Womens Volleyball TeamI just wanted to wrap up a couple of items I blogged about recently to tell you how it all turned out. I don't like to leave you hanging like that. So let's start with the Puerto Rico Women's National Volleyball team.

Well things didn't go to well for the ladies in Japan. After beating Kazakhstan in round four, the Puerto Rican team lost 9 straight sets losing to Dominican Republic, Poland and Serbia. Finishing with a record of 1 win and 6 losses the ladies finished last even their record was the same as Thailand, due to the least points and the least sets won. Boy I bet that was along place trip home.

However, individual high honors went to Ocasio Karina, who lead all players with the most points, and Cruz Aurea with the highest serving average. It's unusual to have such stand out players on a last place finishing team. One can only imagine the poor quality of play that surrounded them.

The Puerto Rico Capitals inaugurated their season and team last Saturday night against the Thomasville Dragons. The first professional women's soccer team in Puerto Rico, the Capitals managed pulled off a tie, when Patricia Chapa scored on a penalty kick to tie the game 1-1. Check here, to learn when the Capitals play in Puerto Rico again.

And as for the NORCECA Beach Volleyball tournament, well I never saw anything, nor can I find any results anywhere on the web. I can't even find mention that there was, in fact, a tournament held over the Memorial Day Weekend. However, by coincidence, the family and I did happen to go to the Balneario de Carolina on Monday. Check out the reviews, and you'll see what I thought of the beach. We did see the court and some occasionally activity, but by 4:00 p.m., we had yet to see a match, so I'm not sure if there was any played. If anyone knows, please leave a comment.
