Despite a strong showing in this year’s Eastern Caribbean Volleyball Association, ECVA, Championship, Dominica had to settle for third place at the end of the tournament.
The five-day competition, which took place in the British Virgin Islands, saw The Nature Island team winning against Grenada, The BVI, St. Marteen, and Anguilla.
However, Dominica suffered its only defeat of the Championships against St. Vincent in the first semi-finals match on Sunday morning.
This left the national team to, once again, face off against St. Marteen in the third-place match.
The Dominica team emerged victorious in that game, capturing bronze after a four-day winning streak.
Team Captain, Keaun Reefe, said the men put on a much better showing in their final match.
