Nicole Fawcett had ups and downs in her debut season with recent Superliga Champions Dentil Praia Clube/Uberlândia. Plagued with some minor calf injuries during her campaign, she struggled to string together consistent performances. In some games, she looked nothing like her once, dominating self, displaying woeful hitting percentages and efficiency.

However, when it mattered most in the playoffs’ most important moments, she came through, helping the team win its much coveted first Superliga title. Facing elimination in the semis against Osasco, she delivered 20 points on 4 sets. Facing elimination in the finals, she likewise poured 19 points for Praia in 4 sets against Sesc/RJ. All the while, her powerful service wreaked havoc in both team’s receiving formations.

Her performance was enough for Praia to offer to extend her contract, which she accepted, and the news was recently published in the team’s official Instagram page, to the delight of fans. For Team USA’s enthusiasts, this means that they’ll get to watch a Fawcett – Carly Lloyd tandem in the team for next season.

In addition to Fawcett and Lloyd, Praia will have in its roster next season Olympic gold medalists Fabiana Claudino, Fabiana Garay, and current Brazilian national teamers Suelen Pinto and Ellen Braga, meaning it will most certainly be formidable foe and a favorite to repeat as Superliga Champions.
