Zhu spearheads Tianjin to another Chinese Volleyball Super League win
Chinese volleyball icon Zhu Ting continues to be in sublime form in the ongoing Chinese Women's Volleyball Super League. She powered Tianjin Bohai Bank to yet another emphatic victory at home in the recently-started season. Thanks to Zhu's overwhelming presence in her new team, the Tianjin side continued their momentum with a straight sets 3-0 win over Guangzhou Hengda on Saturday.
Playing in purple, the Tianjin side showcased their incredible form from the word "go." After a nice save from Marshevet Hooker, Zhu hammered a spike down the line en route to winning the first set 25-15.
At the beginning of the second set, Guangzhou's Dobriana Rabadzhieva came off with a calf strain. Yet, the visitors stood firm with solid blocks and went on to lead by six points. However, Tianjin Coach Chen Youquan sent in Chen Xintong and the setter showed great coordination with Hooker, who pounded a spike, and later helped the home side win the set 25-22.
Tianjin then wrapped up the third set 25-18 with Zhu Ting scoring 20 points, and Li Yingying contributing with 18 for the winning cause.
