SIOUX CITY, Iowa – Park University put the icing on an already sweet Pool Play cake Thursday (Dec. 4) at the NAIA Volleyball National Championship in Sioux City, but there's no time to enjoy it. The second-ranked Pirates (37-0) took down No. 11 Grand View (26-16) in three sets at Tyson Events Center, completing a perfect run through Pool B behind a combined 23 kills between Wanessa Siqueira and Wendy Romero and 23 Daniela Duarte digs on the back row.
Park also had an efficient setting performance from Juliana Barros, who quarterbacked the team to a .227 hitting percentage on 28 assists while Romero and Toi Collins were each in on four of the team's blocks, followed by three net stops for both Amanda Alves and Salma Shahtout.
"I'm happy that we performed with a lot of consistency against a Grand View team that was well coached and trying to end its season with a highlight win," said Park coach Mike Talamantes. "We take a lot of pride in our performance, and I thought that showed today."
