The U.S. defeated Dominican Republic 3-1 (25-16, 19-25, 25-20, 25-23) to capture its fifth all-time Pan American Cup. Dominican Republic, the defending champions, had not lost a set in its six tournament matches until meeting Team USA in the final. The Americans finished the tournament with a perfect 7-0 record.
