Daniele Santarelli’s squad also made essential changes in the outside hitter roster: After parting the ways with Italian Miriam Sylla and American Megan Courtney, the club denoted the arrivals of the experienced Italian Alessia Gennari, Canadian Alexa Gray, but most importantly the American star Kelsey Robinson-Cook.

Imoco separated their ways with Italian elite middle blocker Raphaela Folie, who had been on the team since the 2016-2017 season. In addition, they extended the contracts of the Dutch star Robin De Kruijf and Italian Sarah Fahr, who had a severe injury last season. The team built a domestic player-weighted middle blocker rotation by adding Marina Lubian and Eleonora Furlan to the squad.

Imoco will continue with Joanna Wolosz in the setter position this season as well, and the experienced Polish star’s substitute will be the promising Italian Roberta Carraro.

Imoco also did not change their starting libero: top Italian player Monica De Gennaro will continue to help the team on the back side of the court. Her alternative will be the 1994-born Italian Ylenia Pericati.

After a long period of numerous successes with almost the same squad, Imoco made numerous changes in the roster for the upcoming season. Of course, the new team should need some time to adjust and gain their strength. On the other hand, Imoco will definitely aim to maintain their titles in Italy and bring the CEV Champions League Volley trophy back home.
