After one year in the German Bundesliga this year CALIs former 18 Black Asst. coach and Hofstra student athlete Nuria Lopes da Silva plays for VBC GALINA in the highest pro league in Switzerland. We hope to have her back for some camps and clinics soon.
John Cook [Nebraska Head Coach]: “They’re solid, they got a great outside hitter and they got a middle, (Nuria), that has to have the highest vertical in the country.” “We froze the video and her feet are at the bottom of the net. It’s crazy. She’s got major hops.”
