The 17-year wait is over. Jastrzębski became the Polish men’s champions, dethroning ZAKSA, whose title defense was predicted by most in the country given the regular season campaign which they won and during which they were undefeated for 27 games at one point.
Jastrzębski, the 2nd-seed, quite unexpectedly defeated ZAKSA in the first match of the 2020/21 PlusLiga playoff finals. However, the team coached by Italian Andrea Gardini presented itself really well in Game 2, as well, and took the first league gold medal since 2004. Led by Tomasz Fornal (16 points), Ukrainian Jurij Gladyr (6 blocks), and Rafał Szymura (73 % attack; 11/15), the ‘Hawks’ prevailed by a 3-1 (22-25, 25-19, 27-25, 25-23).
Jakub Bucki, Jastrzębski opposite hitter, was named MVP of the final series.
