Janine Sandell Signs On With Spanish Team
Here is an excerpt from the club's website, helpfully translated from Spanish by a GoHuskies.com student assistant:
"The club director was able to come to an agreement with the British player, who played the previous season with CV Albacete. Sandell is a player the team courted, but the signing was stalled because of the economic situation. But the force of both parties made it possible for Sandall to play with Valeriano and coach Adrià Fiorenza.
Sandell is an outside hitter with a lot of potential and the team says she is in great shape. She is only 23 years old and 5-9. She was the fourth best scorer on the Superliga last year, with 342 points, with an average of 4.12 points per set and between 12 and 20 points per game. Even though she is British, she studied in the United States (at Santa Barbara and Washington).
She debuted with the British National Team on July 17, and she has 42 national appearances. The same summer she challenged for the European League title with her national team. The season prior, she took CV Albacete to the Final Four of the Challenge Cup."
Sandell joined UW for one season after leaving UC Santa Barbara. She helped the Huskies reach the Final Four, averaging 2.14 kills per game with a .250 hitting percentage in 109 games.
