The Puerto Rican female volleyball legend Áurea “Aury” Cruz has returned to play in her home country after a decade.

 

The veteran outside hitter Cruz strengthened Amazonas de Trujillo Alto in the Puerto Rican Women’s Volleyball Championship (LVSF), returning to play in her home country after 10 years.

The last time she competed in the Puerto Rican top division was in the 2009/10 season when she defended the colors of Llaneras de Toa Baja. After that and prior to that, Cruz performed in the NCAA, Italy, Spain, South Korea, Azerbaijan, and Turkey, and also on many major international events with the national team from which she retired in January. The 38-year-old player was one of several foreigners dismissed by the management of the Italian side Golden Tulip Volalto 2.0 Caserta after disappointing results in the first half of the ongoing season in Serie A.

Check out the list of foreigners in the 2019/20 LVSF.

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
