2017 SOUTH AMERICAN WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS
- 2018 World Championships qualifier
- Cali, Colombia
- August 15th-19th
- Tournament Central
After three days of the Women’s South American Volleyball Championships in Cali, Colombia, only Brazil and the hosts Colombia are left with undefeated 3-0 records. If Brazil and Columbia win on Thursday against Peru and Venezuela respectively, they will play each other in the final match of the tournament (it is a pool play tournament) on Friday. The winner of that match will also be the first team to qualify from the South American Confederation (CSV) for the 2018 FIVB Women’s World Championships.
The Brazilian women have been dominant in their first three matches outscoring their opponents by more than 2 to 1. Out of the last six sets played against Venezuela and Chile, three sets did not even see their opponent reach double figures.
Colombia easily dispatched a young Chile squad on Wednesday. However, Thursday’s match against Argentina could have ended their chances for the title. Argentina was desperate to get their first win of the championships after being swept in their first two matches. Both the first and second sets went to extra points, Colombia taking the first, while Argentina took the second. Chile comfortably won the third set, but Argentina responded by taking the fourth set, to force a fifth set. Colombia prevailed 15-10 in the fifth set to win the match and were led by Dayana Segovi with 19 points, while Argentina’s Emilce Sosa scored 21.
