(CNS Local Life): The Cayman men’s beach volleyball team took to the courts in the midday heat Saturday, 28 July, at Puerto de Oro, in Barranquilla, Colombia, for their first match at the 23rd Central American & Caribbean (CAC) Games. Nathan Dack and Casey Santamaria won their first match against the US Virgin Islands, but then fell to Mexico and Curacao so were unable to advance out of Pool E.

Playing later on Saturday, women’s team members Ileann Powery and Marissa Harrison lost their opening match against the Dominican Republic, then fell the following day to host Colombia, so were unable to continue out of Pool A.

Both teams then played Monday, 30 July to decide the final overall standings.
