Reports: American star spiker Hackley to join Beijing BAIC Motor
In 2018, Bartsch led the U.S. team to the champion in the first FIVB Volleyball Nations League, also winning her first MVP. Since her debut for the U.S. national team in 2015, she has quickly grown from a role player to the key figure.
By bringing in this star player, Beijing BAIC Motor hopes to improve its strength in attack and defense as well. After Bartsch joins in, Beijing BAIC Motor will have more choices for starting line-up and combination.
Bartsch now plays for Italian team Asystel Volley this season. On April 5, Asystel Volley will face Vakfibank in the first-round semifinals of CEV Volleyball Champions League.
