Puerto Rico overwhelmed St. Lucia 25-8, 25-15, 25-12 Monday afternoon on the opening day of the Visit Omaha NORCECA Women’s Continental Championship at Ralston Arena.

Puerto Rico led every statistical category with a 43-15 margin in kills, 8-0 advantage in aces and 3-0 edge in blocks.


Puerto Rico too strong for St. Lucia

Puerto Rico Captain Yarimar Rosa: “We were excited to play the first game of the tournament. I think in the second set we lost our focus. I think we underestimated them a little bit so we weren’t playing our best. That’s something that we have to get better at.”

Puerto Rico Coach Jose Mieles: “We had a lot of errors. We have to play hard regardless of who we are playing. We have to play our own level of volleyball.”

St. Lucia Captain Natalie Edward: “This is like nothing we have ever experienced, playing at this level. We are just trying to take it all in and play our best.”

St. Lucia Coach Florian Combie: “I thought we were a bit nervous. It’s our first journey to this level of tournament. As we gain experience I think our fear will diminish.”
