Nwanebu joins Larson, De La Cruz, and Edmond as this week’s Athletes Unlimited captains. Ebony Nwanebu broke through as one of the captains for next weekend’s matches, but three of the second-week Athletes Unlimited pro volleyball captains held onto their titles. Accordingly, when action resumes on Saturday, Team Nwanebu plays Team (Bethania) De La Cruz, and Team ( Leah) Edmond plays Team ( Jordan) Larson.
De La Cruz captained the Purple Team and they won all three of their contests. Larson’s Gold Team played in two of the season’s most competitive matches yet. They won their first two matches by a cumulative three points before losing to De La Cruz’s team in the Week 2 finale.
The first round of matches is in the books, and now Athletes Unlimited heads into an all new second round of pro volleyball competition with new captains and new teams. The way Athletes Unlimited works is after each three-day, four-team round robin, four new captains — the players who scored the most points — choose new teams. This week, that means that Jordan Larson, Karsta Lowe, Bethania De La Cruz, and Leah Edmond will make their picks at 6 p.m. Eastern Tuesday.
Behind an undefeated week and multiple MVP 1 performances, outside hitter Bethania De La Cruz passed Jordan Larson on the overall leaderboard in Week 3 of the Athletes Unlimited Volleyball season. De La Cruz and Larson secured their spots as captains for a third straight week and are joined by opposite hitter Karsta Lowe and setter Kelly Hunter, who is making her first appearance as a team captain heading into Week 4.
De la Cruz joined the Turkish club Eczacıbaşı VitrA and help them win the 2014–15 CEV Champions League by defeating 3-0 to the Italian Yamamay Busto Arsizio. She was named one of the Best Outside Spikers from the competition.
