The Turkish Women’s Volleyball Championship newcomers PTT will be very strong on the outside hitter’s position next season.

 

As the Division 2 champions in Turkey last season PTT announced, their roster for the top-flight debut will be reinforced with the Peruvian power Ángela Leyva. A 22-year-old player came from the Brazilian side Osasco Voleibol Clube/Audax, previously gathering awards for the MVP and Best Scorer (once each) and Best Outside Hitter (twice) in the Peruvian League. Internationally, Leyva was named South American Championship Best Outside Hitter twice and South American Club Championship Best Outside Hitter four times.

In addition to the Peruvian star, PTT hired several more newcomers for the 2019/20: opposite hitter Polen Ünver (ex-Uslupehlivan, Fenerbahçe Opet), middle blocker Janset Erkul (Beşiktaş), libero Ceren Önal (İlbank, Division 2), and outside hitter Ezgi Dağdelenler (Fenerbahçe Opet).

The setter Dolunay Çetinkaya, captain Ayşe Kılıç, middle blockers Selin Toy and Ceren Baysal, libero Burcu Genç, and head coach Bülent Karslıoğlu extended their contracts with PTT.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

ECH U16 W: Turkey outplay defending champions Italy to win gold medal

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
