In a stunning display of superiority, the United States clinched gold in the U21 Women’s NORCECA Pan American Cup defeating the host country, Mexico, in a decisive 3-0 match held in Nogales, Mexico. Dominating each set with scores of 25-13, 25-16, and 25-21, the USA team remained undefeated throughout the tournament, without conceding a single set.


This victory marks the team’s back-to-back titles and their third overall, including the 2017 edition. On the other hand, despite the home field advantage, Mexico had to settle for their first silver medal, adding to their previous tally of a gold from 2013 and a bronze last year.

In the meantime, Marcelle Baez, the team captain for Puerto Rico, earned recognition as the second Middle Blocker, while Mar Lopez took home the award for being the tournament’s top scorer. Additionally, Andrea Cruz was honored with the Best Libero title and was also named the Best Defense player.
