Barleti Volley complete clean sweep of Albania’s domestic competitions
News from the National Federations

Tirana, Albania, April 25, 2014. To crown an already memorable season Barleti Volley could celebrate their second straight title in Albania women’s national league. The team was the real force to reckon with this year, winning all domestic competitions and cruising through the season without suffering any single loss on the way to yet another accolade for the side that has dominated the Albanian Volleyball scene for the last couple of years.

After topping the charts at the end of the regular season, Barleti Volley – also known as UMB Volley, which stands for University Marin Barleti Volley – routed Teuta DURRES in the semis cruising to two consecutive 3:0 wins. The other semifinal was a derby starring two teams from Albania’s capital, Tirana and Partizani, and that one was a lot closer and more dramatic. Tirana won the first match by 3:0 but Partizani responded by cruising to a 3:1 win in the re-match. Everything had to be decided in the third episode with Tirana eventually having the upper hand by exploiting their longer experience at this level.

The Championship series confirmed that Barleti Volley hadn’t topped the standings at the end of the regular season purely by coincidence. The key players of the team – Erblira Bici, Esmeralda Tuci, Klonarda Nezaj and Enkeleda Braho – helped UMB extend their winning streak and even though Tirana had strengthened their roster by transferring a player from Montenegro during the winter break, this was not enough to prevent Barleti from sweeping three consecutive matches by 3:0 to further cement their supremacy.

“This was a great season where we won everything and did not lose a single match,” said the coach of Barleti Volley, Hasan Gurabardhi. “This is the right reward for the work done by these players who did never relax and played all the time with the same intensity and quality, being always determined to win.”

This season Barleti Volley had already topped the charts of the Federation Cup, Independence Cup and National Cup for a clean sweep of all domestic competitions.
