Cyprus, San Marino Qualify In Women's Volleyball

SCHAAN, Liechtenstein, 24 May 2009 - Cyprus and San Marino qualified from the Small Countries Division to the main qualification phase of the 2011 Women's European Volleyball Championships. Cyprus finished first and San Marino was second in the pool rankings of the Small Countries Division Final Round, here, over the weekend. Luxembourg was first and Liechtenstein fourth in the last test of the teams before the opening of the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe in Cyprus next week.

In a hotly contested tournament in Schaan, Cyprus recovered from an opening day defeat in five sets to San Marino and replied with victories over Liechtenstein in straight sets and Luxembourg 3-1, to edge San Marino for first place on a better set-average. San Marino had lost on day two to Luxembourg in five sets, but clinched a qualifying berth through a last-day victory over hosts Liechtenstein 3-1.

All four teams were tied with three points each at the end of Day 2 and in the deciding matches, Sunday evening, both Cyprus and San Marino came back from one set down to secure the victory that brought them amongst the top teams of Europe.

The Cyprus Team is expected back on the island Monday evening, to continue preparation for the GSSE.
