In an Argentine duel, UPCN San Juan Vóley defeated Police Vóley and finished fifth in the South American Club Championship, which is played in Araguari, Brazil. The sanjuaninos won 3-0 (25-21, 25-21 and 25-20), in a match corresponding to the relocation of the tournament. In this way, in its 11 South American participations, UPCN managed to always stay in the top 5, with 10 medals included.
The double South American champion (2013 and 2015) crossed paths with the Formosa team after both failed to qualify for the semifinals, finishing second in their respective regular phase groups.
The game was fought and balanced, with two teams that know each other a lot. UPCN, who played with an alternative formation, showed solvency in the decisive sections of the sets, which was when they managed to take key advantages. Until each sprint, the match was point to point. Manuel Armoa Morel once again had a key role in the attack, together with the opposite Juan Bucciarelli, who started.
In this way, UPCN closed the 2023 South American Club Championship and, after returning to the country, will focus on the semifinals of the Argentine League. In that instance, he will face Monteros Vóley, in a best-of-three series that will begin on March 30 in Tucumán.
