For the third time in a row, Shakhtyor Soligorsk became the champions of Belarus. The team that claimed the No.2 seed for the playoffs won the series of the Division A 2018/2019 Men finals against the top seed Stroitel Minsk, who remained the most-titled team in the country with seven championship trophies, by a 3-1.

Shakhtyor beat Stroitel in Game 4 of the finals in four sets, partially 23-25, 25-23, 25-17, 25-21, in front of own crowd. Vladimir Zhigmont top-scored for the new Belarus champions with 25 points while Artem Kudryashov noted 19 points for Stroitel. It is worth mentioning that Stroitel played a decisive match without two starters, Ilya Burov and Vladislav Davyskiba who got injured in Game 3 which Shakhtyor won in the tie-break, and itsignificantly weakened their chances in Game 4.

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
