The youngster Diego Cantagalli set the new record of the Italian volleyball competitions for points in a single match.


Diego Cantagalli, the son of a one-time FIVB World Championship and CEV European Championship winner with the Italy National Team, Luca Cantagalli – also known as the ‘Bazooka’ – broke the record for points in a single match in competitions under the Italian Volleyball League (Lega Pallavolo Serie A).

Yesterday, a 21-year-old opposite hitter of Sieco Service Ortona scored 46 points in the second division (Serie A2 Credem Banca) match against Emma Villas Aubay Siena (3-2).

Such a display allowed Cantagalli to overtake a record held by Venezuelan-Italian José Matheus for 20 years (45 points in A2). Cuban Raydel Poey is in third place on the list with 44 points in A2 in 2016. The two outputs from the top division (SuperLega) follow the above-mentioned trio: Giulio Sabbi (42 points in 2013/14) and the Dutchman Nimir Abdel-Aziz (41 points in 2019/20).

Vargas exclusively for WoV: “I have no desire to change my federation of origin“

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
