ROESELARE and BEVEREN claim Belgium national league titles to cement domestic supremacy
News from the National Federations

Brussels, Belgium, May 6, 2017. The 2016-2017 edition of the Belgian national league ended earlier this week with Knack ROESELARE and Asterix Avo BEVEREN confirming their supremacy in the domestic arena at the end of exciting ‘best-of-five’ series in the men’s as well as in the women’s competition.

Asterix Avo BEVEREN had to work hard to net the women’s title as the real sensation of this season, VC OUDEGEM, put up a fight until the end. The team coached by Sacha Koulberg and Julien Van de Vyver claimed their two home matches but ended up losing at the tiebreak in the fifth, all-deciding fixture. Asterix Avo BEVEREN had won the national cup earlier this season as well and the national league title adds another accolade to the showcase of head coach Gert Vande Broek and rising star Britt Herbots – Belgium’s ‘Female Player of the Year’ – who is likely to move to Italy next season. The team captain of BEVEREN, Sarah Smits, bid farewell in the best way after announcing she would retire from competitive Volleyball at the end of the club season.

Knack ROESELARE and Noliko MAASEIK extended their long rivalry in the championship series of the national league – and after taking a 2-1 lead in the race for the title, everything looked somehow easy for Knack when playing before a sell-out crowd at Schiervelde sports hall. ROESELARE won the first and second sets before securing a four-point lead in the third, but veterans Jelte Maan and Wout Wijsmans together with rising star Kamil Rychlicki helped Noliko come back to win the third and fourth sets as well. Rob Bontje made it 10-10 in the tiebreak after ROESELARE had edged ahead with the help of Matthijs Verhanneman and Arno Van de Velde. Wijsmans cancelled one match ball for the opposition, but finally Knack ROESELARE emerged victorious at 16-14 to complete a fabulous season – earlier this year they had won the national cup and made it to the Playoffs 12 of the CEV Volleyball Champions League losing to eventual gold medal winners Zenit KAZAN of Russia.
