DR women finish 8th in World Grand Prix

The Dominican women’s volleyball team failed to climb beyond the 8th place in the 25th World Volleyball Grand Prix, falling in the round robin to Italy and Turkey in Bangkok, Thailand. 8th place is the best the Dominican Republic has ever placed. The country was also 8th in 2006 and 2010.

In the final qualification round, the DR defeated Thailand 2-3 (25-17, 21-25, 26-24, 21-25, 7-15), but then lost to Italy 3-0 (25-20, 25-22, 25-15) and to Turkey 0-3 (14-25, 31-33, 23-25).

The DR was playing in Group 1 of the World Grand Prix that groups the best 12 teams in the world. To move on to the finals, the DR needed to be in the top five of the tournament.

The DR finished behind Serbia, the USA, Brazil, Netherlands, Italy, Japan and China.
