civf-logo(CNS Local Life): Cayman is gearing up to host the FIVB World Championship Qualifiers for Group C of the NORCECA region on 12-13 November at Clifton Hunter High School. At the tournament, the women’s national indoor volleyball team will go head to head against Bonaire, Bahamas and Guadeloupe. Cayman’s team, consisting of 13 players aged 16 to 37 years old and training since August of this year, is led by head coach Mark Ray and assistant coach Troy Alleyne of First Baptist Volleyball Club.

Ray is encouraging residents to make time over the long Pirates Week weekend to cheer on their national team and be the “seventh player on the court” by attending and supporting the young squad in its first international event.

Team Cayman plays Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 11am and 7pm.

The team comprises Taylor Burrowes, Chlouie Gaetos, Stefania Gandolfi, Trisha Espinal Geurrero, Stephanie Jackson, Stacy-Ann Kelly, Sarah Manoy, Brenda Mascarenhas, Kathy Miller, Ileann Powery, Chanté Smith-Johnson, Jossanah Smith, and Amanda Wong
