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.

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Trentino should be fine to advance in the top 3 2nd place positions for Champions League quarterfinals. Hopefully this rest will help them. That win in Milano was impressive. Lube continues to look great and Juantorena is still playing at a high level. Reply
