A group of young Juarenses between 18 and 25 years old showed up Monday to support the Argentine team at the Tenth Pan American Cup women’s volleyball tournament under way in Ciudad Juárez. The international competition featuring 12 teams is being played in the gymnasium at Colegio de Bachilleres.

The Juárez cheering squad beat a drum and played a trumpet as Argentina played Chile.
