Team coach James Verrinder said he is proud of their achievement at the championships.
“We made a lot of errors in the first set of the game, because the girls had to wait for 50 minutes for another team to arrive for the game, which frustrated them.
“In the second set we played really well, but in the third one we buckled. However, I'm happy to see that these young athletes did well, despite this being Kristin's first major senior competition,” he said.
The coach added his goal is to see Namibia qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games, but before that the youth team should compete well at the 2020 Youth Commonwealth Games.
