Bansley and Maloney’s seventh caps great week for Canada on World Tour

 SANYA, China (April 28, 2012) – Heather Bansley and Liz Maloney of Toronto equalled their best career result on the FIVB World Tour beach volleyball circuit Saturday placing seventh at the 2012 season’s second stop.

In their sixth match of the tournament, the Canadians were finally eliminated by Krystina Kolocova and Marketa Slukova of the Czech Republic 21-17, 21-15.  Their overall record was four wins and two losses.

The seventh place equaled their showings at stops in Thailand and Quebec City last season.
