The 2018/19 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists, Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, signed Cuban opposite hitter.

 

A 20-year-old Cuban prospect Heidy Casanova will play in Osasco next season, the club announced on its social media profiles.

Two seasons ago, Casanova joined Le Cannet in France and remained in the club after it merged with Volero Zürich next season as well.

The opposite hitter defended the colors of La Habana, the club in her home country, until 2017. That year, she disputed in the FIVB U23 World Championship and decided, along with her teammate Liset Herrera, not to return to Cuba with the rest of the team. For now, it was the last desertion of Cuban players from any of the national teams.

Casanova will again compete for the place in the lineup with Serbian Ana Bjelica, as they both played for Volero Le Cannet last season.

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
