Segovia's 19 paces Colombia as they defeat Puerto Rico for first Grand Prix win


Chiclayo, Peru, July 9, 2017 – Dayana Segovia’s 19 points paced Colombia as they swept past Puerto Rico 3-0 (25-16, 25-12, 26-24) to get their first win of the 2017 FIVB World Grand Prix.

The majority of Segovia’s points came at the net. She had 15 of her 19 points off of spikes, helping Colombia dominate for much of the match.

The South American team started fast in the first set, and stayed steady throughout the match as they were able to close out the first two sets quickly. Puerto Rico was able to stay close early in the second set, and had tied the third set at 24 before Colombia got the final two points to win the Pool C2 match.

Colombia will travel to Almaty, Kazakhstan next weekend for Pool D2 of the World Grand Prix, while Puerto Rico will host Pool F2 in San Juan.
