American squad, coached by Jerritt Elliott from the University of Texas, did not suffer a single defeat throughout tournament (2-0 in pool stage, 3-0 knockout stage) to reach their first-ever trophy in the fourth edition of the tournament. Both teams secured their berth in the 2017 FIVB U20 World Championship in Boca del Río and Córdoba, Mexico (July 7-16) – the U.S. NT from NORCECA and Argentina as member of South American Volleyball Confederation (CSV). The U.S. NT did not compete in the first three editions of the U20 Pan Am Cup because it won spot in the World Championship earlier.
U.S. receiver Khalia Lanier from the University of Southern California – USC (sophomore) scored game-high 16 points, followed by University of Minnesota middle blocker Regan Pittman (freshman) with 12 points. Club Atlético Boca Juniors opposite Anahí Tosi was the only double-figure player in Argentina with 12 points.
