Paola Hibs have returned from the region of Reggio Calabria where they were invited to play in a friendly triangular tournament against Golem CinqueFrondi and Gioiosa. This tournament is the second international commitment for the team this season following the Paolites’ participation in the CEV Challenge Cup at the beginning of this season.

In their first game, the Paola girls succumbed to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of CinqueFrondi, a semi professional team who are currently 4th in the Italian Serie B2 league, while they had the better of the Serie C Gioiosa team thus finishing second overall.

This experience has strengthened the commitment of the team members who are now more motivated to face future challenges. They currently hold the top spot in the local female first division league standings and remain unbeaten. Their target is to bring their eight successive league title to Paola.
