USA-B women reign supreme in Martinique


POINTE DU-MARIN, Martinique, October 28, 2018 -  It was a case of the North American invasion as USA-B’s Katherine Spieler and Karrisa Cook topped the women’s edition of the sixth and final stop on the 2018 NORCECA Beach Volleyball Circuit.  


Facing next door neighbors, Canada-A’s Sophie Bukovec and Alexandra Poletto, in the title match, Spieler and Cook triumphed  21-18, 20-22, 15-12 in three minutes under one hour for a first ever NORCECA tour win.


This after the Canadians survived a match point in the second set before taking the set to extend the match.


In the semifinals, Spieler and Cook overcame Puerto Rico’s Allanis Navas Sanchez and Maria Gonzalez 17-21, 21-18, 15-10 and Bukovec and Poletto defeated countrywomen Amanda Harnett and Marie-Christine Lapointe 21-16, 21-15.
