USA Women and Brazil Men Claim Gold

2016 PanAm VolleyballWashington, D.C., July 4, 2016—On the day the United States celebrated its 240th birthday, Gallaudet University hosted a pair of bronze and gold medal matches for both men and women in Pan American regional volleyball.

In the men’s bronze match, Venezuela qualified for the 2017 Summer Deaflympics by defeating Canada 3-0 (25-15, 25-13, 25-22). Canada claimed the women’s bronze medal with a 3-0 (25-20, 25-13, 25-22) victory over Argentina.

Despite a 2-hour 32-minute five-set loss to the American men’s team in the preliminary round, Brazil played well and won the men’s gold medal with a score of 3-0 (25-16, 25-19, 25-16). In the women’s final, the United States prevented Brazil from taking the other gold medal with a three-set repeat. The sum of the 25-16, 25-19, 25-16 score was just one point greater than the total in the American sweep of Brazil in the preliminary round.

The final scores and statistics and rankings are available under the RESULTS and RANKINGS menu items.

USA men tops Brazil in PANAM volleyball thriller

2016 PanAm VolleyballSpectators were treated to a thrilling match between the men’s USA and Brazil teams at the final day of round robins at the the 2016 PANAM Volleyball Regional Qualifiers at Gallaudet University in Washington, DC. The match went the distance with all sets that could have gone either way except the fourth set. The match was a back and forth affair with USA winning the first, third, and deciding set and Brazil took the second and fourth sets. USA almost lost the game when they were unable to close out Brazil in the final set with a 14-8 lead. Needing just one rally to end the game, USA could not get it done and Brazil fought back to tie the game 14-14. USA finally ended Brazil’s run to take back the lead 15-14 but Brazil was not to be denied when they won the next two rallies to take the lead 16-15. With an opportunity to end the game, Brazil served into the net giving the ball back to USA and a 16-16 tie. A kill attempt by Brazil’s Felipe Neto was blocked by USA’s Hunter Taylor gave USA a 17-16 lead. The final rally that ended the game was a kill by Chad Ervin that was tipped by Rafael Pereira of Brazil at the net and the ball careened off to the middle of backcourt out of reach for other players.

The other three games did not offer much excitement as the first game of the day pitted women’s team of Brazil and Canada. The game ended in straight sets in Brazil’s favor 25-8, 25-18, and 25-20. The other men’s game pitted two winless teams in Venezuela and Canada. Venezuela won in three sets 25-16, 25-21, and 25-13. The final match of the day was a blowout by USA’s women team against Argentina 25-7, 25-6, and 25-8.
