Cayman’s women’s beach volleyball team records their first win at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Columbia.

Playing at Puerto de Oro, Cayman’s Marissa Harrison and Ileann Powery engaged in a hard-fought battle with their St. Lucian opponents. Harrison and Powery were able to secure the first set 21-17 and went on to claim the second set 21-19, to win the match.

The men’s team were not as fortunate. Casey Santamaria and Nathan Dack fell to the Barbados team 15-21 in the first and seconds sets. Neither team made it to the semifinals, but they will continue to play for overall placements.
