The three out of six matches of the first round in the 2019/20 Japanese Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season were not held due to the incoming danger of typhoon.



The Typhoon Hagibis, the most powerful storm that hit Japan in 60 years and who is about to make landfall on the country’s capital Tokyo later today, postponed three out of six games of the opening round in the 2019/20 V.League Division 1 regular season.

Toyota Auto Body Queenseis made a little surprise by beating last season’s play-off semifinalists JT Marvelous in straight sets, partially 25-20, 25-23, 25-19. Turkish international Neriman Özsoy top-scored for the winning side with 20 points.

Victorina Himeji had unsuccessful top division debut despite a notable display of their newcomer from Brazil Ivna Colombo (18 points, including 4 kill blocks). They lost to Hitachi Rivale on the road by a 3-1. Hisae Watanabe scored 23 points for the hosts.

American Simone Lee was outstanding for Kurobe Aqua Fairies against PFU Blue Cats with 25 points but her team lost in four sets.
