The former US Women’s Volleyball National Team opposite hitter and Olympian from Rio, Karsta Lowe, will play in Japan next season.
The V.League vice-champions JT Marvelous engaged the former US National Team member and 2016 Rio Olympics participant Lowe for 2022-23. The MVP of the 2015 FIVB World Grand Prix thus definitely kept pursuing her professional career, whose biggest part she had spent in Italy, after announcing her retirement in July of 2021 to join the organizing committee of the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics, following the inaugural season of the Athletes Unlimited pro league in her home country in which she took part. However, the 29-year-old Lowe joined Puerto Rican Las Changas de Naranjito this April for a short-term contract before finally signing for the Marvelous for next season.
It will be Lowe’s second adventure in Asia after defending the colors of China’s Beijing in 2016-17.
