Women’s Volleyball is one of the most popular sports in Puerto Rico. The video of the Criollas de Caguas Championship match included should be proof enough. The crowd goes absolutely crazy throughout the entire match. I haven’t seen this kind of an atmosphere outside of Duke vs UNC basketball.
You can find additional women’s volleyball information on the official site Liga De Voleibol Superior Femenino.
This Championship was the eighth one for Criollas de Caguas. Their Championship years are 1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, and 2011. The following players were on the 2011 roster: #1 Annerys Vargas Valdez, #3 Stacey Gordon, #5 Brenda Castillo, #6 Stephanie Enright, #7 Michelle Nogueras, #8 Yahir Molina, #9 Joedly Narvaez, #10 Diana Reyes, #11 Gloria Ortega, #12 Odemaris Diaz, #13 Shirley Ferrer, and #18 Bethania De La Cruz.
Following the match, the entire team went into downtown Caguas for a big celebration. This celebration was a lot of fun and was really memorable because we were able to meet the members of Criollas de Caguas and even hold the Championship Trophy.
We highly recommend you take in a Volleyball game if you are in Puerto Rico during their season.
