Americans Casey Jennings and Stafford Slick joyfully celebrate their sensational victory in three sets against local pair of Lombardo Ontiveros and Juan Virgen in Toluca, Mexico on Sunday

Toluca, Mexico, June 10, 2013 – Teams of USA locked up the men’s and women’s gold medals at the Toluca Beach Volleyball Tournament, the fourth stage of the 2013 NORCECA Circuit.

In the men’s finals, Casey Jennings and Stafford Slick stopped Lombardo Ontiveros and Juan Virgen of Mexico, who were looking for their third consecutive title of the year. Their female compatriots Emily Day and Whitney Pavlik edged the local pair of Bibi Candelas and Martha Revueltas to take home the gold in a tough three-setter.

Jennings/Slick won 21-17, 16-21, 17-15 while Day/Pavlik scored a come-from-behind victory 15-21, 21-15, 17-15.

"It's my first title NORCECA tournament in Mexico,” Slick said. “It is a good time for us, I really liked the game, Mexico has a great team and it was a great game," Slick said.

"The Mexican fans are great and I love them. My grandfather is Mexican and I felt very well with the public, always supporting the teams," Slick added.

Day said: “Mexico has a very good team and we had to plan well our game because it was a very difficult match. It's wonderful to play in Mexico, as they are developing and promoting beach volleyball, and have great teams.”

In the semifinals, Jennings/Slick prevailed 21-19, 21-23, 16-14 against Roberto Rodriguez/Hector Soto, of Puerto Rico while Ontiveros/Virgen won a duel with Canada’s Grant O’Gorman/Sam Pedlow 19-21, 21-14, 15-9.
