Volleyball Canada – Lima, Peru (June 28, 2019): Canada swept Chinese Taipei 3-0 (25-16, 25-17, 25-16) in the team’s opening match of the Women’s Volleyball Challenger Cup in Lima, Peru on Thursday evening.
 
The tournament’s overall winner will earn a spot in next year’s Volleyball Nations League for women.
 
It was a team effort with Autumn Bailey and Alexa Gray with 13 points each, and Kiera Van Ryk with 12.
 
“We were happy with the start,” said Canada’s coach, Tom Black. “Taipei threw a very different look at us, and our players responded well. It was great to see veterans like Kyla Richey and Alicia Perrin come in ready and make significant contributions.They’re true pros.”
 
Both Perrin and Richey played professional volleyball in Peru this past season.
 
“I believe patience can describe this match. Chinese Taipei had a very good defense, so our passing and blocking took longer to score,” said middle blocker Perrin.
 
Canada faces Argentina today, which will decide pool B’s top finisher and the crossover in Saturday’s semifinals. Chinese Taipei, with two losses, does not advance at this Volleyball Challenger Cup.
 
“Argentina is a big physical team that wants to overpower you,” explained Black. “They have dynamic hitters and it will be an awesome test for us. We’re excited to compete tonight.”
