Omichka has performed extraordinarily well in their first CL campaign, topping the charts with a total of 64 aces and being ranked fourth with 554 when it comes to the scoring tables. The players from Siberia’s second largest city are also the second-best team overall when it comes to the percentage of the attacks (45%) they have successfully completed.
Individually the “Cats” – as they are nicknamed in Russia – are among the best players in this year’s CEV Volleyball Champions League as well. Marina Babeshina (Sheshenina) is the second-best setter, while team captain Elena Yureva (Hendzel) has recorded 17 aces and 84 blocks so far, thereby claiming the third and fourth rank respectively in the relevant standings. Cuban-born Nancy Carrillo has registered 146 points so far – including 14 aces – to settle for fifth place among the top scorers of the competition while Natalya Mammadova is the fourth-best spiker with 117 points.
The next round of the competition is coming up already next week where Omichka will be up against Eczacibasi at home before travelling to Turkey a week later for the return game to be played at the Burhan Felek Volleyball Hall. The Final Four tournament of this year’s CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League is scheduled to take place on March 15-16 in Baku, Azerbaijan.
