News from the National Federations

Zadar, Croatia, September 15, 2020. The final matches of the Snježana Ušić Cup and Croatian Cup for women’s and men’s teams respectively took place this past September 12 at the iconic Krešimir Ćosić sports hall in Zadar, with a double triumph for Mladost ZAGREB, whose players defended last year’s titles. Due to the strong measures in place to prevent any spread of the novel coronavirus, no spectators could follow the matches from the stands.

The women’s team of Mladost beat OK Kaštela 3-0 (25-17, 25-21, 25-13), while the men needed as many as five sets to edge Mursa-Osijek 3-2 (23-25, 25-19, 19-25, 25-22, 15-12).

“I must congratulate our girls who played phenomenally, both in the semi-final and the final. Praise goes also to the club officials, who made it possible for us to train in these tough conditions. I can only hope that the situation with coronavirus will improve soon and that we will play even better in the domestic league,” said Mladost head coach, Leo Barić. Katarina Pavičić, MVP of the Snježana Ušić Cup, pointed out: “The match was under our control all the time, as the result of our hard training in these last two months. Despite the empty stands, the atmosphere was great. We are happy with this win, and cannot wait for the new challenges both in Europe and in the domestic league.”
