U.S. Men at Pan Am Cup

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (July 25, 2017) – The U.S. Men’s National Team opened the 2017 Pan American Cup with a  25-18, 25-23, 23-25, 25-18 win over Mexico at Gatineau’s Robert Guertin Arena in Canada on Tuesday.

OFFICIAL STATISTICS

The U.S. Men will continue pool play on Wednesday against the Dominican Republic at 2 p.m. ET.

Mexico led the match in kills (46-44) but the U.S. Men dominated in blocks (9-3) and aces (12-3). Each team was charged with 32 errors.

“I think there was a little bit of nerves before the first match of the tournament,” U.S. Team Captain Jonah Seif said. “I thought we came out and played well as a team. Mexico is an experienced group so we knew that they weren’t going to give up. We won the game with our serving, blocking and passing.”

U.S. outside hitter Jake Langlois led all scorers with 18 points on a match-high 15 kills, two blocks and one ace. Middle blocker Mitch Stahl added 17 points on seven kills, a match-high five blocks and a match-high five aces, three of which scored the final three points for the United States in the fourth set.

Outside hitter Jake Arnitz totaled seven points, including three aces.

U.S. Head Coach Rob Neilson substituted liberally as almost every player got playing time and 10 scored at least one point. Libero Larry Tuileta played most of the match but Evan Enriques also got playing time.
