We were in a very tough pool, says USA coach


We got better while playing more what was good for our team, said USA USA coach Rodney Wilde.

Brno, Czech Republic, June 30, 2013 – USA finish on a high note after a perfect 3-0 run in the classification round 17-20. In their last match, USA swept Puerto Rico 25-15, 25-22, 25-18. It was a great match for us, said USA captain Jordan Burgess. We had strong contribution from many players.

USA coach Rodney Wilde: I think we played steady; we did a good job controlling the balls, especially the hitters. In the beginning of the tournament, we were in a very tough pool so we struggled a little bit but we got better while playing more what was good for our team.

USA captain Jordan Burgess:  It was a great match for us. We had strong contribution from many players. During the tournament, we did not always play as we should, but we ended on a good note and experienced a good time here.

Puerto Rico coach Carlos J. Cruz: It was a good match but we lost again and finished the tournament with a single victory. Our problem was that we committed many mistakes during our matches. Nevertheless, it was a good practice for us here in Brno.

Puerto Rico captain Pilar Marie Victoria: First of all congratulations to the USA, it was a great team with a lot of intensity. We did not achieve victory but it was a good tournament anyway.
