The famous Dominican female Volleyball player Bethania de la Cruz will play for the 2018/19 Russian Championship semifinalists Dinamo Kazan next season.

 

An experienced Dominican player De la Cruz will wear the jersey of 5-time Russian titleholders Dinamo Kazan in the 2019/20 season, the club announced. A 32-year-old opposite hitter already competed in the Superliga (2016/17 with Dinamo Moscow) and won the title. She is coming from an Indonesian side Jakarta Pertamina Energi.

Amongst numerous gold medals, these stand out in the collection of the Dominican Republic national team captain: one each in the CEV Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship (both with Eczacıbaşı VitrA), Russian Championship (Dinamo Moscow), Dominican Championship (Mirador), Puerto Rican Championship (Criollas de Caguas) and Korean Championship (GS Caltex Seoul Kixx).

Individually, De la Cruz was recognized Dominican Republic Volleyball Player of the Year twice and MVP of the Pan-American Cup, NORCECA Championship and Puerto Rican Championship once each. She was also named Best Scorer of the NORCECA Championship, Pan-American Games and Japanese Championship twice apiece as well as Best Scorer of the Pan-American Cup and Puerto Rican Championship one-time apiece.

Recently, Dinamo Kazan extended with an opposite hitter Tatyana Kadochkina and parted ways with an outside hitter Anastasiya Bavykina (Proton Saratov).

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

[@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

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply
