Olimpia Teodora Ravenna has just announced in its official website the signing of VolleyMob and AVCA All-American Haleigh Washington, from Penn State University. A multiple award winner with a very decorated college career, Washington is widely considered one of the biggest American promises in volleyball. She will be joining a squad that currently sits in 9th place of Italy’s A2 league with a 14-10 record, which means she should get plenty of playing time to further develop her game.

Here is Haleigh’s reaction to signing her first professional contract:

“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to come to Ravenna to play for Conad Olimpia Teodora. The team is already well positioned but will not stop here. I am sure that it can go further and I can not wait to bring my contribution to achieve the goals that the squad has set for itself. Not only that, I am also happy to be able to learn and grow as a player alongside my new teammates, with the help of our coach and staff. I can not wait to train at the gym, meet the fans and take the field to do all I can for the team from now until the end of the season. To all I ask only a little patience because I still have much to learn and I’m here in Ravenna ready to do it!.”
