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.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
