The U.S. national team outside hitter Taylor Sander, who has just won a silver medal in the 2018 CEV Champions League with an Italian Cucine Lube Civitanova, reinforced Sada Cruzeiro for the next season. He will have a task to successfully replace Cuban Yoandy Leal, who went in the opposite direction.
„I’m very excited about the chance to play for Sada Cruzeiro! Being able to wear the jersey of one of the best clubs in the world is a great honor for me. I cannot wait for the arrival, to make new friends and to live in a country as beautiful as Brazil,“ BYU graduate said.
Sander, the 2014 FIVB World League (MVP and Best Outside Hitter), 2015 FIVB World Cup, and 2012 Pan American Cup (MVP) winner, signed a two-year contract with Cruzeiro.
By adding Sander, Cruzeiro completed the squad for the next season.
