Kreklow compiled 21 assists in a 3-0 victory over Mexico, racking up five more assists than the entire Mexico team combined.
Team USA ended pool play at 3-0. The earlier victories over El Salvador and Guadalupe, along with the win over Mexico automatically qualify Team USA for the semifinals on Friday.
Kreklow combined for 20 assists against El Salvador and Guadalupe before passing out 21 against Mexico.
Team USA is playing for its fourth-straight NORCECA Continental Championship. Top competitors in the tournament include the champions from the other two pools, Cuba and the Dominican Republic.
