Vargas, an opposite player of Cuba’s Women National Team, brought her tournament total to 134 points, the second highest mark in the history of the intercontinental event, trailing only Puerto Rican Aury Cruz, who recorded 151 in the 2009 edition.

Melissa, who stands at 184 centimeters, is probably the youngest ever scoring champion of a senior women’s volleyball major tournament.

Vargas is the eighth player (nine times) to amass more than 120 points in a single Pan American Cup.

The members of the exclusive club are:

Aury Cruz (Puerto Rico) 151

Melissa Vargas (Cuba) 134

Kristin Richards (USA) 128

Bethania De la Cruz (Dominican Republic) 126

Desiree Glod (Venezuela) 125

Karina Ocasio (Puerto Rico) 122

Nancy Metcalf (USA) 121

Wilma Salas (Cuba) 121
