COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The U.S. Men’s Sitting Volleyball Team won the gold medal on Saturday at the Central American Games for Sitting Volleyball with a 25-14, 27-25, 25-12 victory over Colombia in the final.

The U.S. men finished the tournament with a 5-0 record and did not lose a set.

"It was great to see the team perform well enough to not only win the Central American Games gold medal but do it without losing a set," said Edgar Laforest (San Juan, Puerto Rico), who joined the team on Saturday to replace Eric Duda (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), who had to leave due to professional responsibilities.

Dan Regan (St. Louis, Mo.) paced the U.S. effort on Saturday with 10 points on six kills, three blocks and one ace. J.Dee Marinko (Newcastle, Okla.) added eight points on three kills, three blocks and one ace.
