Spikers target Cuba

Local volleyball players will target more kudos in Cuba this month.

The Cayman Islands is sending male and female teams to Varadero Beach for the fifth stop in the 2013 North Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation Beach Volleyball Circuit. Cuba hosts the action on 21-26 August.

Local volleyball is currently on a high. Cayman’s female pairing of Cristin Alexander and Jessica Wolfenden are ranked fifth on the NORCECA tour, ahead of 11 other countries in the region. Both ladies also teamed up to grab a silver medal at the 2013 Natwest Island Games in Bermuda last month.

While the men are only ranked 12th on the NORCECA tour, they did produce a medal at the Island Games. Olney Thompson and Philippe Deslandes teamed up to win silver.
