Second placed Joseanne Lewis of Antigua and Barbuda scored 49 points.
Antigua and Barbuda and St. Martin took home the majority of the individual awards. Of the 11 awards, both teams shared eight between them. St. Martin’s Middle Blocker Amanda Sylves accounted for three for St. Martin while Antigua’s Rochelle Boyer got three individual awards as well – Best Digger, Best Libero and Best Receiver which reflected the hard work she did throughout the tournament.
The best Outside Hitter went to Joseanne Lewis of Antigua while the Best Opposite went to Shaunese Hous of St. Eustatius. Aryel Leonard of St. Lucia was by far the Best Server and no one was close to Antigua’s Aliya’s Alfred in the setting department.
