On Monday, April 27 2015, the JCU co-ed volleyball teams won their second trophy ever in the third placement tournament against Europea University.
The match started with Lucio D. and Roberto R. in great shape with their attacking skills. However, Europea lead the first set until the 12th point, until the Gladiators managed to turn around the score with a magnificent final result of 25-22.
Europea took hold of the second set, as the Gladiators were fatigued and lacked concentration after such a comeback in the last minutes of the first set.
Yet JCU once again fought back as hard as ever, winning the third set and securing the third placement in the tournament. Coach Stefano Papari commented “losing the second set 25 to 18, gave the team the right mentality and push in order to get ahead in the third and last set. Which ended 15 to 8 in favour of JCU!”
A special thanks to the cheerleading team who gave the Gladiators that extra spark of light and spirit!
