Brandonite Lisa Barclay is back with the Canadian women’s volleyball team for the Pan American Cup in Mexico.

Brandonite Lisa Barclay, Brandon University Bobcats women’s volleyball head coach Lee Carter and the Canadian women’s volleyball team begin their quest for the Pan American Cup championship today in Mexico City.

The Canadians — who have brought Carter in as an assistant coach for the tournament — have been placed in a pool with Peru, Trinidad and Tobago, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Cuba. The top three teams will advance to the quarter-finals. It could be an exhausting trip for Canada, which takes on Peru today, as the team could play as many as eight matches in nine days during the event.

The 6-foot-2 Barclay rejoins the team at left side after the 21-year-old standout with the UBC Thunderbirds missed the world championship qualifying tournament last month due to university exams, while 6-foot-5 left side Tabi Love of Dauphin won’t make the trip. She suffered an ankle injury while playing professionally in Poland in the winter and has been given the event off to rest it to get healthy for the FIVB Grand Prix — the women’s equivalent of the men’s World League — and the world championship later this summer. Canada hasn’t appeared in the Grand Prix since 2003.

Carter, whose contract with the national team expires at the end of the tournament, will be involved with Canada’s block defence, offensive schemes, game planning and helping with tactical adjustments.
