Germany - VBL 1. Bundesliga 2018/2019

  • Good news from Münster: Chiara Hoenhorst has recovered very well from that horrible attack in April, she is currently doing rehab and hopes to be ready until the beginning of the season, but she definitely hasn't suffered any permanent damage :super:

  • NawaRo Straubing signs Lena Große Scharmann from Stuttgart's 2nd team as 2nd OPP. Carina Aulenbrock is currently recovering from ACL injury and might join the team during the season again as 3rd OPP.

    This is really funny: she is already the fourth player educated in Stuttgarts federal academy respective second team playing for Straubing this season (the others are Neuhaus, Wenzel and Stöhr).

  • NawaRo Straubing has now confirmed the transfer of USA MB Ty Richardson, and they also confirm that Lisa Izquierdo is currently in tryout training with them and depending on her physical condition (she's still recovering from her ACL injury) they might sign her.


    I guess if even NawaRo doesn't sign her that would be the end of Izquierdo's career :/

    It would be a big loss for German volleyball, if Izquierdo is completely out: she brought complete Cuban look and playing style into the league (not very tall, but jumping very high, and pulling her arm extremely quickly in attack).
