Both the U.S. men’s beach team of Casey Jennings and Stafford Slick along with the women’s beach team of Emily Day and Whitney Pavlik captured gold medals on Sunday at the fourth stop of the 2013 NORCECA Beach Volleyball Circuit in Toluca, Mexico.
In the men’s gold-match, Slick (Andover, Minn.) and Jennings (Las Vegas, Nev.) battled through a three-set victory (21-17, 16-21, 17-15) defeating Mexico’s two-time defending champions Lombardo Ontiveros and Juan Virgen.
“It's my first NORCECA tournament title in Mexico,” Slick said in a NORCECA press release. “It is a good time for us; I really like the game. Mexico has a great team and it was a great game.”
