Updated Results of the Belize Female Junior Volleyball Team for matches played over the weekend


August 8th, 2011


The Belize Female Junior Volleyball Team took on #1 ranked and host country, Costa Rica, last Friday night.  Our girls started each set strong but Costa Rica would show its experience and height superiority winning in 3 sets, 25-13, 25-09, 25-21.  Analisa Habet was high scorer for Belize with 6 points and Clara Sabal with 5 points.  Costa Rica is the oldest team averaging 16.8 years old while Belize is a whole year younger than the next youngest team averaging 15.1 years old.

On Saturday evening, the Belize girls took on Nicaragua but after the emotional effort of the night before, played flat and lost 25-12, 25-10, 25-15.  Analisa Habet and Clara Sabal scored 8 and 6 points respectively.

Yesterday, the girls took on Guatemala, the only team expected to challenge Costa Rica and again the girls were competitive at the start of the sets but lost 25-13, 25-17, 25-11.  Analisa Habet was high scorer for Belize with 4 points.

At half way through the tournament, Belize’s 14 year old Sherika Burton is 3rd best blocker.
