Belize is the host country for the twentieth annual Central American Women’s Volleyball Championship. Six of the Central American nations are participating in the event and since it has been underway the competition has been quite challenging for the competing teams. The president of the Belize Volleyball Association, Allan Sharp says that there are two days left to see some of the vibrant matches. However, the Belize Volleyball Association is charging adults but will give a free pass to the first thousand students who show up for today and Wednesday’s matches at the Belize Civic Center.
Allan Sharp President BVA: We lost a scooter in the first match against El Salvador but since them we have been wining and since then we beat Panama 3-0 and last night for the first time in our history we beat number 2 rank Nicaragua 3 sets to 1. Tonight we go up against the champion for the past 15-20 years Costa Rica. They seem beatable in this tournament; this is the time to beat them. We are the team with the most offensive fire power so we will have to combine that and take over their experience and their confidence; make them crack the tomorrow night is the final night in the tournament against our big rival from Guatemala so tomorrow its against Guatemala. We are expecting a big crowd, we are hoping for a big crowd both in the game tonight and tomorrow night. The crowd plays a major role for us playing at home; they make our team motivated. Of course they intimidate the next team and they make sure the referee makes all the close calls our way so we are looking and hoping for a great crowd. We are also offering the first 1000 kids and high school students to come today and tomorrow will get a free pass in; again to try and build our crowd. I think our girls are ready, our girls are confident, we have a very strong team and now we need the home crowd support that will make the differnce.
The match starts at 7:30 p.m. Its ten dollars for general admission and twenty for V.I.P.
