National Female Volleyball Team Fighting at Central American Championship

Female athletes attached to national teams are overseas representing the country in volleyball and football. Nearest to our borders are the national female volleyball team, who landed in Nicaragua on Friday. They have since participated in three matches at the Central American Championships. They lost to Costa Rica, won the second game against Honduras and then lost today against El Salvador. President of the Belize Volleyball Association Allan Sharp spoke to News Five today about the performance so far.

“The girls played one of the top teams, the team that won when we were here in Belize, Costa Rica and of course they had a lot of vengeance for us – if you saw it on Facebook, they had a lot to say after winning that game, so I hope that motivates our girls. So they beat us the first game, but then we bounced back yesterday with a game against Honduras. We had to go to five sets, but the girls showed true heart and worked really hard, but a lot of energy into it and came out with a victory. And I think the girls feel a lot more confident now, a lot more normalised with the tournament. I think we can look for further success. Some teams are looking stronger than other; some that were not normally so strong are looking quite good and some that are normally strong are looking normal. But I think the girls are now back in the groove. The coaches have done some changes for each set almost and I think we see what’s working now.”
