Saugella Team Monza made a huge upset in Round 8 of the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Saugella Team Monza’s winning streak prolonged to three games despite playing European champions Igor Gorgonzola Novara on the road in Round 8 of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season: 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 25-16, 25-21)! For the first time this season, Novara head coach Massimo Barbolini had all players from the roster at the disposal. After Serbian opposite hitter Jovana Brakočević Canzian recovered earlier, the American outside hitter Megan Courtney has finally returned from an injury and took her place in the line-up. However, it didn’t help Novara, who are at the No.4 with 6-3 and 17 points after today’s shocking loss. German Hanna Orthmann and Dutchwpman Floortje Meijners scored 16 points apiece for Monza, while Beatrice Parrocchiale made 73% reception (22 digs, 50% perfect). Brakočević Canzian tallied 14 points for Novara.

In the match between the two 2020 CEV Champions League pool stage participants, Imoco Volley Conegliano prevailed over Savino Del Bene Scandicci, who obviously failed to recover from an exhausting five-setter against Turkish VakıfBank, which was played four days ago. Scandicci resisted only in the first set, “disappearing“ from the game in the second and third a 3-0 (25-23, 25-10, 25-15). Paola Egonu led Imoco, who are at the top of the charts (9-0), with 19 points (70% attack, 16/23).

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
