    The Polish women’s volleyball team kicked off the European Championship with a resounding victory as they defeated Slovenia 3-0 in their opening match. After an impressive showing in the Volleyball Nations League, where they secured a bronze medal, expectations are high for the team coached by Stefano Lavarini. With the return of Joanna Wołosz to the squad, Poland is poised to contend for a spot on the podium.

    In their opening group stage match against Slovenia, Poland’s lineup featured Joanna Wołosz, Magdalena Stysiak, Olivia Różański, Martyna Łukasik, Magdalena Jurczyk, Agnieszka Korneluk, and Maria Stenzel. Różański made a strong impact with a series of infinite attacks. While Slovenia tested Poland’s reception, the team’s block-defense system proved effective. Despite some challenges in Stysiak’s attacks, Poland secured the first set 25-19.

    Securing Success

    The second set saw Poland needing time to find their rhythm, leading 22-12 with Stysiak’s attacks driving them forward. Excelling in all facets, Poland maintained dominance throughout the set, finishing with a convincing 25-14 win.

    The third set appeared to be a formality, but Slovenia fought back, closing the gap to one point. However, Poland’s consistent play allowed them to regain control and secure the final set 25-19, sealing a commanding 3-0 victory. With four more matches ahead, Poland’s next encounter is against Hungary on August 20th at 20:00.
