European Championship U19 for girls has featured many talented players but these are officially the best, picked by the CEV.


Italy have managed to win the crown after making an amazing comeback in the final. At the ceremony, these players got the awards:

MVP: Valeria Battista (ITA)

Outside hitters: Oliwia Baluk (POL), Derya Cebecioglu (TUR)

Middle blockers: Viktoriia Pushina (RUS), Sarah Luisa Fahr (ITA)

Opposite: Magdalena Stysiak (POL)

Setter: Polina Matveeva (RUS)

Libero: Sara Panetoni (ITA)

The head coach of Italy Massimo Bellano was very happy after a big success of his team:

“I feel good, most of all because of the girls. We started the summer with the wish to create a new group. I think that on Sunday we played as a team and we deserved this victory. Italy is the team of the first set, but Italy is also the team that showed character and came back after losing two sets,” says Bellano.

His colleague who sits at the bench of the Russian national team didn’t hide disappointment since his team had a 2-0 lead in the final:

We showed much character in the first two sets, but in the last set, we were empty. We let the emotions ‘eat us’, all of the sets we were chasing them in the score. On top of this, we had a difficult match on Saturday, so it had its impact on us. The future for these girls? It depends on them. In our sport, everybody loves the first ones,” says Alexander Karikov.

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply

SLO M: ACH Volley crowned champions for the 15th consecutive season

I believe there has been a typo. Libero is Jani Kovačič and not Jan Pokeršnik(receiver) Reply
