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.”
