Canadian women’s volleyball team geared up for big game tomorrow

The Canadian women’s volleyball team have a record of 1-1 through two games at the Pan Am Games in Toronto. The focus of Dana Cranston and her teammates will now turn to a key match-up against Argentina where the team can book themselves a spot into the quarter-finals on Wednesday.

The team has played against Argentina recently and came away with a victory, and with that Cranston said the squad is aware Argentina will be looking to return the favour on Canada’s home court.


“We’re 1-1 with Argentina this summer. We just beat them last week on their home turf so we know they’re going to come out swinging and playing hard. I think sticking to our game plan, making sure that we’re executing what we’ve planned for and doing that as a group. I think as long as we stay aggressive and do that we’ll come away with a win.”

The Canadian ladies got off to a slow start against the Dominican Republic on Thursday, but responded with a solid win against Cuba 3-1 to even their mark at 1-1.

Argentina also comes into tomorrow’s game with a record of 1-1. The teams will square off tomorrow at 10:30 a.m. local time.
