Cedric Enard seemed emotionally to float after the masterpiece of his Berlin. “I will probably need a few days to get back to earth. This evening was a dream for us,” said the coach in the confetti rain during the award ceremony on Saturday. His team had won the final series for the German volleyball championship against the German volleyball championship against the permanent rival VfB Friedrichshafen with a 3: 1 (25:25, 25:23, 25:22). For the twelfth time in total and for the sixth time in series, the BR Volleys secured the title.
This record of success does not slow down the ambition of Managing Director Kaweh Niroomand. “Maybe we should now tackle to become a record champion,” said the 69-year-old. Friedrichshafen keeps this record, but only with the wafer -thin lead of a title gain more than the volleys.
two defeats at the start
The final series went over the full distance. In the end, the Berliners won 3-2. The Volleys was the first club to become a master after two defeats at the start. “I can’t remember having experienced a final series on such a high level, with two teams that were absolutely at eye level,” said Niroomand. His conclusion: “The product volleyball was presented excellently from both sides.”
Klein finally stops
There will now be certainly personnel changes in the Volleys squad. Who goes, who is coming – that is not yet clear. In any case, middle blockers Georg Klein will end his active time a second time and fully devote himself to his training as a police commissioner. The 30-year-old had therefore said goodbye to volleyball two years ago. However, because a middle blocker was in Anton Brehme because of a knee injury for the entire season, he made himself available again.
“He was an enormous help for us, is an incredible fighter, plus a highly intelligent player,” said Niroomand. When captain Sergei Grankin was given the master shell on Saturday, he immediately passed it on at the small podium on the small item positioned next to him. 8553 spectators in the sold-out Max-Schmeling-Halle cheered. “An incredible backdrop, she carried us to victory,” said Niroomand.
