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.

BRA W: Two Minas players nearly get into fight on time-out against Praia! (VIDEO)

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
