Polish club Legionovia has informed in its official website that it has signed Cassidy Pickrell to its roster. The 24-year-old 6’1″ outside hitter, an UC Irvine and Arizona State alumni, is transferring out Switzerland’s Neuchatel to what will be her sophomore professional season. Here are her first words as a member of her new team:

“I really like it here. We’re a great team. I feel good in Legionowo. The city is charming, I love the fact that there is a lot of green and the smell of trees surrounding the hall. I can not wait for the season! I’ve visited Warsaw, what a beautiful city! It has such a rich history, I will be happy to get to know it better. Last weekend I went by train to Germany and from the windows I could see Poland. This is a beautiful country, I want to see more! The team welcomed me very warmly. Everyone is very nice and I am glad that I passed the tests positively and joined this team. I will certainly learn something from everyone, we will work very hard.”

The team was likewise very excited:

“I am glad that our composition is growing. Cassidy is a player who will fit perfectly into the team not only in a sporty way, but also mentally. It will definitely be a good spirit for our team.” – Coach Piotr Olenderek

“Cassidy Pickrell very quickly acclimatized in Legionowo. The two-week test period has allowed us to dispel doubts and make sure that we want her in our new team.” – Team President Sławomir Supa

At Legionovo, Pickrell will join a team that finished its last season 8-18, standing at 11th place out of 14 teams.
