The United States Women’s Volleyball national team middle blocker Hannah Tapp is the new player of the Brazilian top division newcomers Flamengo.

 

Flamengo, who earned a promotion to the 2019/20 Superliga by winning the silver medal in Division 2 last season, contracted U.S. national team member Hannah Tapp. She is coming to the Rio de Janeiro team from an Italian side Zanetti Bergamo.

A 24-year-old middle blocker has just won the Pan-American Cup with her national team, being selected Best Blocker of the tournament. While playing NCAA with Minnesota Golden Gophers, Tapp was named AVCA All-America First-Team in 2015, which is the college dream team.

Interestingly, Hanna’s twin sister Paige is also a professional Volleyball player and a member of the U.S. national team.

Prior to Tapp, one-time Brazilian titleholders (2000/01) Flamengo engaged opposite hitters Beatriz Flávio “Bia“ (Maringá/Amavolei, Division 2) and Maria Luísa Oliveira “Malú“ (Itambé Minas), liberos Gabriella Dutra and Stephany Carvalho (both from Fluminense F.C.), outside hitters Natália Monteiro (Itambé Minas), Carla Santos (Fluminense F.C.) and Italian Valeria Papa (Savino Del Bene Scandicci, Italy), setters Francine Tomazoni (Esporte Clube Pinheiros) and Juliana Carrijo (Fluminense F.C.), and middle blockers Roberta Gomes (Esporte Clube Pinheiros) and Fernanda Ísis (São Cristóvão Saúde/São Caetano).

The club renewed contracts with opposite hitter Angelica Caboclo, outside hitter Jessica Silva and middle blocker Nandyala Gama. Flamengo rewarded the head coach Alexandre Ferrante for promoting the team in the Superliga with a new contract as well.

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
