Best Players of Round

orlen14-best2

Looking at all teams’ performances worrying is spike efficiency, which in most teams is dramatically low. Also because of this Katarzyna Zaroślińska was chosen as best OPP of Round, none of opposites achieved even 40% spike. Looking at next matches Impel can remain the leader of league because of quite easy schedule till 4th Round. Then team from Wrocław will play against better teams: Chemik, Atom, Tauron, Aluprof and Muszynianka. Interesting fact is nice scoring performance by German outside hitter Heike Beier, which usually has weak spike and quite solid reception. We also had first coach change in PGNiG Nafta PiłaDariusz Luks was replaced by Wiesław Popik (last season head coach of Aluprof).
