Lisa Barclay and Canada’s national women’s volleyball team are rolling at the Pan American Cup.
The 21-year-old Brandon native started all three sets and led the Canadians with 10 kills as they ran their record to 3-0 with a 3-0 (25-22, 25-23, 25-21) victory over Cuba on Friday in Mexico City. Cuba fell to 1-2. It was Barclay’s second straight match as Canada’s kill leader.
Canada, which includes Brandon University Bobcats women’s volleyball head coach Lee Carter as an assistant as well as Dauphin’s Tabi Love (out with an ankle injury), takes on Mexico today.
Meanwhile, starting setter Dustin Schneider of Brandon had a kill and two blocks to help Canada’s men’s team beat Belgium 3-0 (25-15, 25-21, 25-21) in a World League match in Vancouver. Toon Van Lankvelt of Rivers played in the second set but didn’t hit the stats sheet.
Canada improved to 4-1.
