SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic – Canada, represented by Trinity Western University's men's volleyball team, lost in the final at the Pan American Cup to the Mexico 3-0 (17-25, 24-26, 20-25) on Thursday.
Leaving with a 5-2 record, Canada's placement in this year's tournament stands as their third silver medal, and first top-three finish since 2016. The USA took bronze after a win over host Dominican Republic.
