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.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
