The Italian women’s volleyball side Igor Gorgonzola Novara secured one of the starting middle blockers for the next season.
After 8 years of defending the colors of Novara, Cristina Chirichella has signed a new 2-year contract with the club, with an option on the third year. Thus, extending the commitment with this season’s Serie A semi-finalists until 2024, the middle blocker will reach at least 10 seasons in the Novara jersey. So far, Chirichella collected 332 appearances in total and 2,257 points scored with the club: for both parameters, Chirichella is the record holder in the history of Novara in Serie A1.
During her 8 years in the club (the captain for the last 2 years), she has won a CEV Champions League, a ’Scudetto’, 3 Italian Cups, and a Super Cup.
