Tours completed Round 11 of the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season with a win.


Slow start of the season, worst in the last more than 20 years, didn’t discourage titleholders Tours who have recorded five wins in a row, including the one against vice-leaders prior to the Round 11 match - Montpellier. Actually, Tours took over their place in the charts and settled just behind the leaders Rennes with 7-4 and 22 points.

Latvian Hermans Egleskalns top-scored for Tours with 18 points. Canadian Ryan Sclater tallied 21 points for Montpellier, while Brazilian Nicolas dos Santos served 6 aces.

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
