Coaches expect strong battle for medals in El Salvador
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador, December 2, 2012 - The coaches of the
various national teams competing in the XVII Senior Women’s
Central American Cup expect a strong fight to be among the
medals, especially that the level is equalized in recent years.
The Argentinean Horacio Bastit, the Costa Rica coach, said: "I
try to have the best team in all events that will serve as
preparation to meet the main goal of qualifying for the 2014
World Championship. We will try to play the tournament with our
best cast. We have the main players such as Willis sisters (Verania
and Angela) and Karen Cope.”
Reynaldo Ortega, coach of Panama, said that "we will try to keep
the second position we occupied in the last tournament with a
combination of new and experienced players. We have some
veterans who can contribute and provide experience."
Rene Quintana, of Nicaragua, said that "the main goal is to be
on the awards podium. We know it's hard, because in recent years
the volleyball in the region has been matching. Anything can
happen and we can’t relax. "
Julio Dominguez Guatemala coach said: "The goal is clear,
improving the fourth place we got two years ago. We have a very
young team, renovated and we will try to focus on playing good
volleyball and according to that we will look for the results."
Ingrid Rivas of El Salvador, said that "we will do our best on
the court, we are playing as locals and we hope to have all the
support to be another incentive. The team is young, but is well
focused to get the medal."
Honduras coach, Marvin Ulloa, said "I have a fighting team,
motivated and excited, look forward to a good tournament,
especially because we got third place in Costa Rica (under 23)
which we hope to repeat at least."
