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).

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply

ITALIAN CUP M: Lube prevail in adrenaline-filled finale, Perugia’s 23-game winning streak over

One of, if not the best match ever. Absolutely brilliant play by both sides. Fantastic Final. Reply
