U.S. Women's Sitting Team Takes Silver at Worlds



EDMOND, Okla. - After driving through the 2010 Sitting Volleyball World Championships with relative ease, the U.S. Women's Sitting Volleyball ran into a roadblock called China in the gold medal match and fell 25-18, 25-20, 25-15 on Sunday at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO).

The U.S. Women's Team won the silver medal and finished the tournament with a match record of 7-1 and a set record of 21-5. China finishes at 8-0 and a set record of 24-1.

The U.S. Women's Sitting Team played well at times during the match, but didn't keep up a consistent attack against China.

"We did do some things we wanted to do when we were in system," U.S. Women's Head Coach Bill Hamiter (Bethany, Okla.) said. "We knew (China's Yuhong Sheng) would get her swings. When we were in-system and getting our swings, they weren't picking up on it."

"There are so many things we can do now that we don't have to worry about qualifying," Hamiter said. "I'm already thinking about how I can help them develop the skills we need to continue to rise."
