Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala, May 11, 2014 – USA’s Tealle Hunkus and Kimberly McGiven-Dicello, and Cuba’s Sergio Gonzalez and Nivaldo Díaz ruled their respective opponents to claim their second title of the season at the NORCECA Beach Volleyball Circuit on Sunday.

Earlier in the semifinals, Hunkus/McGiven-Dicello prevailed over Flores/Martinez in a tough three-setter (26-24, 18-21, 15-10), while Weamer/Vanzweiten had a difficult task to close the match at 2-1 (21-13, 22-24, 19-17) against Cope/Alfaro. 

In the men’s division, Cuba’s Sergio Gonzalez and Nivaldo Diaz won their second title with an easy 2-0 (21-15, 21-13) victory over Puerto Rico’s Roberto Rodriguez and Erick Haddock.
