WWK Volleys Herrsching achieved a historical win in Round 9 of the 2019/20 German Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


WWK Volleys Herrsching wrote down an important piece of the club history on Saturday. The team coached by Max Hauser beat the record 1. Bundesliga Männer champions VfB Friedrichshafen (13 titles) by a 3-2 (18-25, 25-23, 22-25, 25-16, 15- 8). It was their first win over this rival since the team stepped into the top division in 2014. American opposite hitter Jalen Penrose was the most deserving player for a success with 21 points. North Macedonian Nikola Gjorgiev tallied 31 points (5 aces) for Friedrichshafen, who suffered their first defeat in the season after eight wins.

Led by the U.S. National Team member Benjamin Patch (18 points), Berlin Recycling Volleys swept Volleyball Bisons Bühl to remain the only unbeaten side (10-0).

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
