Women volleyball team of Serbia second consecutive time climb their way to the gold medal at the European Volleyball Championship winning against Turkey in the final match. Players chosen by the national team coach Mr. Zoran Terzić confirmed their dominance by proving that volleyball is high among sports in Serbia. In the history of University sport in Serbia one team is remembered as the most dominant squad, although they played together only once in the second division of University volleyball.
Fifteen seasons ago second University Volleyball league in Belgrade welcome the team of Megatrend University. For the first time they managed to create a team that had to start from the second division. There was anything strange, except the fact that the team had players from the best team in the country at the time.
Anja Spasojević, Ivana Đerisilo, Slađana Erić, Marina Vujović, Ivana Boričić, Lana Tomić, Iva Vujošević and Zdravka Stanković were a part of that unstoppable force and only the last two players were not part of the Serbia and Montenegro champions, Crvena Zvezda Belgrade. It was a joy watching them play in the university league, and sometimes they were forced to defeat their opponents with a huge margin.
“Usually, when they had to hurry for a practice or a game for their club, they tried to finish the game as soon as possible.” – explained Belgrade university sports association Sport Manager at the time, Mr. Stevan Šegrt.
Crvena Zvezda coach at the time, and now a Serbian national team coach, Mr. Zoran Terzić spent almost every weekend watching his players and their achievements.
We hope that some of the universities that participate next year at the fifth European Universities Games will leave mark and also be remembered as one of the most dominant volleyball teams in the history of University sport.
