Portuguese Women’s Volleyball Championship titleholders Leixões SC engaged the silver medalist from one of the strongest leagues in the world.

 

Bruna Caixeta, who was on preliminary lists of Brazil National Team from time to time, joined three-time successive Portuguese titleholders Leixões. The 21-year-old setter is coming to the team based in the city of Matosinhos from Dentil/Praia Clube with whom she reached the Brazilian playoff finals (lost to Itambé/Minas) and won the Super Cup last season.

In addition to Bruna, Leixões brought four more foreign reinforcements for the next season: three Americans - Cara Cunningham (middle blocker, Virginia Tech Hokies, NCAA), Cassidy Baird (outside hitter, VBC Cheseaux, Switzerland) and Elizabeth Culpepper (outside hitter, Volleyball-Team Hamburg, Division 2, Germany) and one Canadian - Savanah Allen (middle blocker, Central Arkansas Sugar Bears, NCAA).

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
