Miyashiro, Thompson Spark USA Rout Of Costa Rica
UW All-Americans Courtney Thompson and Tamari Miyashiro went straight from helping Team USA to the silver medal in Montreux, Switzerland last week down to Tijuana, Mexico for the Pan America Cup.
Team USA is in the midst of pool play and is 4-0 with one pool match remaining tonight. The tourney serves as qualification for the 2011 FIVB World Grand Prix.
After not seeing much action during the first three matches, both Miyashiro and Thompson were instrumental in leading UW to a lopsided sweep over Costa Rica on Monday. Miyashiro started at libero for the first time in her international career. She posted seven digs and Team USA led Costa Rica in total digs, 28-11.
Thompson came off the bench in the second set and then started at setter in the third set, when UW ran away with a 25-2 set win. Thompson started at the service line for Team USA in the third set and led them on a 14-point run with two aces tossed in.
