Competing in Panama City, Canada’s junior men’s volleyball team dropped a 3-1 (25-23,16-25,25-19,25-23) decision to Venezuela.

The Canadian side featured Spartans players Brad Kufske, Lucas Van Berkel, Derek Thiessen and Branden Schmidt.

After going 1-2 in the round robin, Canada beat the Dominican Republic in the quarter-finals and knocked off previously unbeaten Chile in the semifinals, before falling to another unbeaten squad, Venezuela in the final.
