VNL W: USA remain undefeated after 8 rounds!

443 0

USA extended their winning streak at the 2021 FIVB Women's Volleyball Nations League to eight matches, remaining the only undefeated team in the competition and still on full points with their sweep of Korea.

 

Washington Haleigh was the top scorer of the game with 15 points.

"I think we played very well as a unit, we were really patient, we were still ironing out the kinks. I think we did a really good job and also a great service pressure. I think that having aggressive serve and trying to keep them out of the system was key. They have a lot of good arms that are fast so as soon as we were getting over the net and seal the better it was," says Haleigh Washington.

The Netherlands twice came from a set down to outlast Poland in five and stay very much in the race for a ticket to the Final Four.

Nika Daalderop was the top scorer in the Dutch team with 18 points, Anne Buijs and Elles Dambrink had 17 points each. In Poland, Malwina Smarzek scored 19 and Martyna Lukasik 18 points.

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

VNL W: Preliminary stage over - China put end to USA’s invincibility, 6 players say farewell to Thailand National Team

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
