UCI pair contributes

UC Irvine redshirt freshman Scott Kevorken and incoming freshman Jeremy Dejno helped the United States men's junior national team win the NORCECA Continental Championship in the under-21 division Saturday in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada.

Team USA defeated Canada, 25-14, 25-19, 25-16, in the championship match to finish the tournament 5-0.

The Americans qualified for the 2011 Federation Internationale de Volleyball Junior World Championships in Brazil.

The United States has medaled in every NORCECA men's junior continental championship since the bi-annual event began in 1998, but had never won gold.
