COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 9, 2007) - Beach volleyball teams from the United States won both the men's and women's events on Sunday at the first leg of the 2007 NORCECA Beach Volleyball Circuit on Boca Chica Beach in the Dominican Republic.


In the women's bracket, Paula Roca (Redondo Beach, Calif.) and Alicia Polzin (Houston, Texas) battled Canada's Annie Martin and Dana Cooke, winning the gold medal 21-16, 20-22, 15-8.


"It is the first tournament we play as a team so it was very good to start with a title," Roca said. "The organization was excellent and the crowd was very nice with the players."


"Canada was a tough rival," Polzin added. "But we watched them playing the first two days and our tactics worked well."


Roca and Polzin reached the gold-medal match with a 21-12, 21-19 win over the Costa Rican pair.


The next NORECA Circuit stop is scheduled for April 20-22 in Guatemala City, Guatemala. Jenny Kropp (Santa Monica, Calif.) and Renee Cleary (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) are scheduled to represent the United States on the women's side and Brad Torsone (Rochester, N.Y.) and Jon Thompson (Manhattan Beach, Calif.) are slated to play in the men's bracket.
