Prospect American opposite hitter Jordan Thompson joined Fenerbahçe Opet, the Turkish women’s volleyball club announced.

 

The 22-year-old U.S. National Team opposite hitter Thompson will play for Fenerbahçe until the end of the 2019/20 season. The youngster came to the Turkish team from the University of Cincinnati whose volleyball team, the Bearcats, was eliminated in the 2019 NCAA Division I Championship regional semifinals by Penn State.

Thompson drew attention with her performance in the International Olympic Qualifier but even more by the level of play in the 2019 FIVB Volleyball Nations League when she scored 33 points in the final against Brazil. Recently, Thompson broke the single-game scoring record of the American Athletic Conference and went down the history of the NCAA Division I.

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
