MANAGUA, Nicaragua, August 21, 2012. - Mexico outclasses Guatemala 3-0 (25-11, 25-11, 25-3) for their first win in Pool B at the NORCECA Women’s Junior Continental Championship.


The Mexican squad had no opposition from the Central American champions and had no mercy with 12 aces and a 9-2 advantage in blocking as each team must add the most number of points as possible in the preliminary round.


Mexico had in its captain Alejandra Isiordia with 14 points its top scorer followed by Lizbeth Sainz with 10 points and for Guatemala Lorena Valle with 3 points was the best scorer.


Isiordia indicated “we’ve been training very hard for the last six months preparing ourselves for this tournament and we´re happy with this result.”


“We were prepared for a strong match without taking in account that we didn’t apply well, but we’ll keep on fighting to improve” said Ada Villalobos captain of Guatemala.


Estanislao Vacino argentinian coach for Mexico was sincere in accepting that they weren’t going to give away any points and that’s why they were relentless “our expectation is to qualify for the world championship, we did it already in the U-19 category, the first and second set were good, but in the third our most efficient weapon our serve, appeared”.


Coach Julio Dominguez of Guatemala expressed “we need more international exposure to improve, my team isn’t even the shadow of what they appeared to be today, they were very anxious, but we must be more disciplined in our receive so we’re able to add points.”
