Marian Diaz has doubled down on two quality Canadian players, bringing Verica Bakoc and Axelle Crevier to CE Mediterrani.
Bakoc, 23, and Crevier, 25, are both members of the Canadian national team, and occupy positions on the arc.
Verica Bakoc, who joins Mediterrani from Ethnikos Piraeus, is a fantastic all-round player who, as a left-hander, operates on the right-side. Bakoc previously played for the USC Trojans while at University in America.
Crevier, who was part of the Canadian team that finished 7th at the Tokyo Olympic Games, returns to Europe, having previously played in Italy and for CAMO in Montreal. Axelle is the daughter of Marie-Claude Deslières, who was part of the first Canadian Olympic team in Sydney in 2000, and is now a history-making referee – becoming the first woman to referee an Olympic Final in London 2012.
Two promising Spanish players from Sant Feliu, Daniela Moreno and Irene Costa, have also signed for Medi so far this summer, with the club keen to strengthen their starting seven as well as younger squad players for the future.
Mediterrani finished 4th in the regular season last campaign, but showed real signs of improvement, hot on the heels of Terrassa and Mataro. The club will once again participate in the Women’s Champions League in the forthcoming season.
