    Default Dominican Republic defeats USA in women's volleyball wins Gold medal

    Dominican women win 3rd Pan Am Cup volleyball gold



    Mexico City.- Dominican Republic’s women volleyball team went undefeated in six games to win their third gold medal at a Pan American Cup, beating the U.S. 25-18, 25-18, 25-17 and 25-21 Thursday night.

    The U.S. had defeated Dominican Republic in last year’s final.

    The Dominicans’ win also classifies them for the World Championship Grand Prix 2015, their 12th consecutive appearance since 2003.

    "This is another new victory to the Dominican Republic and we now prepare for the 2014 Grand Prix and the World Championship in Italy," said national team president Cristóbal Marte.

    Team captain Bethania de la Cruz led the attack by scoring 18 points, followed by Gina Mambrú with 15 and Yonkaira Peña, 9 .
