Pallavolo Update

After arriving 11 days ago in Italy, I have already played 3 matches. Jetlag...what's that?  I got off the plane Saturday afternoon (November 20th), and left for Poland Monday morning (November 22nd).  Possibly had the highest scoring match of my life with 4 aces, 2 blocks, and 1 kill.  I now try to remember back to the match and hardly remember it I was so jetlagged.  But after only practicing 2 times together, my team pulled out our first Champions League victory against Lodz.

Villa Cortese def, Lodz 25-19, 25-17, 16-25, 25-15

Next up was our first Italian Championship match against Urbino. Last season Urbino upset us in our first match against them and we weren't going to let that happen again.  Once we came out strong, and again had our 3rd set lapse but pulled of the big win in 4.

Villa Cortese def. Urbino 25-17, 25-21, 22-25, 25-20

After only one day of rest...which really wasn't rest since we lifted weights, we had to play another Champions League match.  This time against a team from the Czech Republic.  Still on a roll from our last two matches we finished this one in 3 sets.  It was a great match for our team, playing without one of our best players others had to step it up.  Now we are 2-0 in Champions League.

Villa Cortese def. Prostejov 25-19. 25-23, 30-28

Next up is Piacenza...

Ciao from Italia


  1. I love the American flag the fans have for you. Makes playing oversea's worth it when the fans love you...

  2. (Sorryfor my english) I Lin, I am an italian fan of you. I have seen you when you came with Villa to play in Castellana to the Palagrotte. I gave you five after the match. I just want to ask you a quastion about your role in the field. What do you think is the best training to a setter? Could you give me some advices about it? PS: congratulation for your great season, I like how you play! I hope you will answer

  3. Ciao Lindsey, scusa se ti scrivo qui, ma non ho altri tuoi contatti.
    Mi chiamo Giulia e colleziono maglie da volley (vuoi vedere la mia collezione qui:
    Lo scorso anno, dopo la finale scudetto, ti avevo chiesto una tua maglia della nazionale e tu mi dicesti di scriverti dopo la stagione estiva/autunnale con la nazionale perchè non ne avevi, quindi eccomi qui :))
    S'è appena conclusa la World Cup e Villa Cortese ti aspetta ;) nei prossimi giorni credo che verrò a vedere un allernamento e volevo chiederti se fosse possibile avere una tua maglia degli USA. Ci tengo molto, se necessario sono disposta anche a pagarla.
    Ti lascio la mia mail:, grazie un abbraccio. Giulia
