The hosts Dentil/Praia Clube and San Lorenzo started the 2020 South American Women’s Volleyball Club Championship in Uberlândia, Brazil, victoriously.

 

Dentil/Praia Clube demolished Bolivian side Universidad Católica de Boliviana at the start of the 2020 Sudamericano de Clubes femenino in front of their own crowd at the Arena Sabiazinho in Uberlândia, leaving rivals at single digits in points in two sets: 3-0 (25-10, 25-7, 25-8). The match was marked with the return to the court of Praia’s opposite hitter Nicole Fawcett. The American player recovered from a sprained right ankle injury that sidelined her for a long time.

The second game of the opening day was an all-Argentine duel. San Lorenzo celebrated a 3-0 triumph over national champions Boca Juniors.

In addition to these four clubs, one more is taking part in the tournament and that’s the reigning titleholders and also Brazilian champions Itambé/Minas. Unlike the men’s event, women’s is played in the round-robin format and the team with the best score will rule the continent and secure a place in the next FIVB Club World Championship, which will be played in December this year.

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
