Caribbean queens bid farewell to Tokyo with defeat to United States

The North Americans, number one in the FIVB world rankings, were dominant to advance to the semis beating the Dominicans in three sets

The Dominican Volleyball Team Women could not before their equals in the United States and said goodbye to Tokyo 2020 when they fell defeated in three sets.

The Americans advance to the semifinal to face their peers from South Korea looking for a spot for the gold medal match.

The Caribbean had a brief reaction at the beginning of the third set, going 10-8 at a time, but the North Americans came from behind to also take the last set

Andrea Drews and his entire squad were dominant in the first set in which they defeated the Caribbean 25-11, taking advantage of the errors and points awarded in the serves of their opponents.

In the second set, Las Reinas del Caribe looked much better and gave the battle falling 20-25, with a good display from the sisters Jineiry and Brayelin Martínez.

Brayelin was the best scorer for the Dominicans with 16 points, followed by captain Prisilla Rivera with 7 and Jineiry contributed 6. The best attacker of the match was Drews with 21 points, followed by Michelle Bartsch-Hackley with 13 and Haleigh Washington with 10.

The general balance of the Caribbean Queens was two losses with four losses, being able to defeat Kenya and the hosts Japan in the group stage.

The Dominican National Team is now entering what will possibly be a renewal process where some players could leave the team and young talents could enter the program.
