Two T&T vball teams for Mexico

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Top ranked local women’s beach volleyball duo, Malika Davidson and Phylecia as well as LaTeisha Joseph and Suraya Chase will represent T&T when the opening round of the 2018 NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tour Circuit serves off tomorrow in Aguascalientes, La Isla de San Maercos, Mexico and runs until Sunday.

The pair of Davidson and Phylecia Armstrong booked their places as T&T’s representatives at the NORCECA opening leg after they emerged victorious in the four-team women’s Third-Leg T&T Tobago Volleyball Federation National Beach Volleyball Circuit (NBVC) Qualifiers at Saith Park, Chaguanas last month for a second win this season.

Starting the competition level on 14 points each after the first two stages of the tournament with national champions Rheeza Grant and Abby Blackman, Davidson and Armstrong, who were battling the flu and shed a few tears during the decider, battled to a come-from-behind 25-27, 21-14, 15-13 win in the final.

By topping the Third Leg, Armstrong and Davidson improved to 22 points and earned the right to fly the national in Mexico

Grant and Blackman, winners of the second-leg trail with 20 points and had the consolation of being the local representatives at the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia earlier this week, while Joseph and Chase are third on the table with 12 points and earned T&T’s second pair of tickets to Mexico in their absence.

This will be the first time that both Armstrong and Chase, who both helped Glamorgan capture the Flow National Indoor Women’s Premier League title at the Jean Pierre Complex, Mucurapo on Sunday last will be competing on the NORCECA Beach Volleyball Tour.

The other countries registered to participate in Mexico are Canada, Cuba, USA, US Virgin Islands, Guatemala, Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, St Lucia, El Salvador, St Kitts/Nevis and host Mexico.

The second-leg of the 2018 Tour will serve off in La Paz, Mexico from April 19-23 followed by Varadero, Cuba, April 26–3 and T&T is is expected to be represented at each leg.

Locally, the National Beach Volleyball Circuit which has been on a break since the March 12 , is set to resume on May 5 in Chaguanas.
