The 2018/19 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists, Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, returned Serbian player Ana Bjelica to the club after two years.

 

Five-time Brazilian titleholders Osasco announced signing a contract with Serbia national team member Bjelica for the 2019/20 season.

A 27-year-old opposite hitter has already worn the jersey of Osasco one season – the 2016/17 – and became the league’s runners-up with the team. That year, Bjelica won the gold medal in the CEV European Championship with Serbia. In 2018, she made an even bigger success with her country’s national team – the title in the FIVB World Championship. Last season, Bjelica played in Le Cannet (former Volero Zürich), France.

In the past couple of weeks, Osasco also engaged middle blockers Adriani Vilvert (Vôlei Balneário Camboriú) and prospect Karyna Malachias (Esporte Clube Pinheiros), setters Amanda Sehn (Esporte Clube Pinheiros) and Priscila Heldes “Pri Heldes“ (Vôlei Balneário Camboriú), and outside hitters Fernanda Tomé (São Cristóvão Saudé São Caetano) and Vanessa Janke (Sesi Vôlei Bauru).

Osasco signed several more players earlier.

ITALIAN CUP M: Lube prevail in adrenaline-filled finale, Perugia’s 23-game winning streak over

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
