U16 pool in Argos to wrap up European qualifiers
2017 CEV U16 Volleyball European Championship - Women

Argos, Greece, April 20, 2017. The last remaining pool to wrap up the 2017 CEV U16 Volleyball European Championship – Women qualifiers is on the starting line in the Peloponnese city of Argos, as Greece host Croatia, Romania and Ukraine in a bid for one (or maybe also a second) qualifying spot at July’s finals in Sofia and Samokov, Bulgaria.

The top team from the three-day pool will advance to join Belarus, Belgium and The Netherlands who already claimed their tickets last week. The second-ranked team in Argos will compete with Poland (2 wins, 6 points, 7-4 sets, and 1.379 set point ratio) for a last remaining berth amongst the second teams of the four qualifying pools. Regardless of the results in Argos, Denmark have already secured one of the top two second-ranked places and Hungary are out of contention.

“We hope to qualify to the final round of the competition, but we need to bring together all the skills our players possess,” said Greece head coach Konstantinos Gkountas at the pre-competition press conference. “Nevertheless, we remain confident that the girls will provide their best effort.”

Greece's captain Magdalini-Maria Tsigkaropoulou felt privileged to be in the competition. “What is happening here is a historic event, as we are the first ever Girls’ U16 National Team of Greece,” she said. “I would like to thank all those that helped us reach this point and we will do our best to make them proud by qualifying to the final round.”

Live streaming of all matches will be available here.
