Fattal scored two more goals when the US women downed Hungary 17-9, but went scoreless in an 18-8 win over host Netherlands, in the tourney finale.
Fattal’s former Los Al volleyball teammate, Justine Wong-Orantes (LAHS ’13) was named to the final roster for the US National Womens volleball team for the Pan-American Cup currently being played in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. She plays libero.
So far Team USA has defeated Trinidad and Tobago and Puerto Rico and lost a five set match to Cuba, but still advanced to the knock-out brackets where they downed Columbia to advance to the semi-finals.
