WithU Verona picked up where it left off two weeks ago. From the insidious trip to Tuscany, coach Stoytchev’s team came back with full loot in their pockets, which allowed them to put the seal on fifth place. The best way to face the commitment that will bring the curtain down on the Regular Season, scheduled for Saturday 11 March at 18.00 against Top Volley Cisterna. An appointment to which the warm audience of the Pala AGSM AIM will be summoned, which has played a leading role in the latest home outings. The victory on the field of Emma Villas Aubay Siena delivered further certainties in the hands of the Scala squad, intending to extend the positive streak. “Winning helps to win” Spirito asserted on the sidelines of the match at the PalaEstra, reiterating his will to appear in the quarter-finals of the Play Offs in the best possible physical and mental condition.
After the usual post-match rest day granted by the staff, the group met this morning at the arena to start preparing for the match. The week kicked off with an unloading session in the weight room and then set up work on technique starting in the afternoon. Two double training sessions are also planned for tomorrow and Thursday, with the activity of perfecting the game system and the understanding between the departments alternating with targeted muscle strengthening exercises. Field work on Friday will be combined with careful study of the opponent, which will also continue on Saturday on match day.
“We remained focused, we knew it would be an important commitment and the boys responded present”. Assistant coach Dario Simoni was satisfied at the end of the match, and it couldn’t have been otherwise, also underlining the ability not to lose attention in the third set: “Often we pay something in the third set, instead we were good at closing the match quickly”.
