Tom? Great debut, we're talking about a player of great experience and there was no doubt about the fact that you could give us a big hand. We need to oil the mechanisms but the room for improvement is remarkable.
Piacenza? We face a very difficult game, they are a great team and against them can not afford the slightest mistake. But this victory can help us to play with more freedom of mind and guessed the approach to the race, I'm sure we will have our say.
Play-Off? Currently we have snooped, in fact, in the Play-Offs and we aim to stay there until the end of the regular season. "

Logan Tom - For Ornavasso, for friendship
Wednesday, 26 February 2014 18:23
Today, Ornavasso held a press conference to announce that Logan Tom has joined them for the rest of the season.
A RETURN TO ITALY
"I'm studying in Florence - she says in Italian - and I felt with Andrea Antonini (Team manager), I was asked if I was available to play, and since I love volleyball I could not say no. In addition, Massimo De Stefano (General Manager) is a friend, all this is born out of friendship."
HERE TO SUPPORT PROJECT ORNAVASSO
Logan Tom is at Ornavasso despite recceiving other proposals abroad: "The environment here I loved it immediately - she smiles - the environment and the people of Ornavasso. True that I have played in important teams also abroad, such as Istanbul, Moscow, Beijing and I have lived many experiences but I think it counts little how big or many trophies; it matters what you have in your head and what you want to do. I'm here now to play volleyball and do well for the team and for Ornavasso, I'm happy to be here."
Coach Openjobmetis Massimo Bellano: " We needed a hitter after the transfer of Sara Loda to Bergamo. The company has made available a champion. Logan can give us leadership, points, reception and correlation of the block - defense. With her, we aim not only to get to the playoffs, but we want to reach them with the best possible ranking. The first four are on the run, the others are all in sight".
A DIFFERENCE IN CLASS
Coach Openjobmetis Massimo Bellano: "I think that she will be particularly aware of the fall to our reality. I think she'll find a volleyball different from that to which she is accustomed, a lower level; and a girl who, however, has been most helpful, when we met her she immediately clarified to want to come with us only if this might be necessary and useful to the team. This humility on the part of a player that is used to winning medals was really important".
"It is a player of great experience and ability, personally and the athlete who is the more 'important' that train, it is clear that in the gym, all are the same, but I am sure that all of us steal something from her secrets, we hope?
Well I hope that at the end of this month and a half Logan can have a nice remembrance of Ornavasso, as has happened with other players that have gone".
A MARKET DREAM TO REALITY
Massimo De Stefano, after the press conference for the presentation of Logan Tom, first talking about the player, a true stroke of his genius.
"Logan's always one of my (target) players - he explains - so much so that that I often tried to bring it to Novara ('09) and I succeeded.
She is a player that is not here for money but for friendship and passion. Moreover, I think it is clear that a top global player like Logan we would not have been able to afford.
I have to say her approach towards the team and the team towards her has been exceptional.
With her arrival now our goals are returning to be those of the beginning, we want the play-offs and once we get in, in terms of experience we begin another championship. But it would be wrong to view her engagement as one of the player which now comes in and wins games alone, no! It is an important shift in the economy of our group".
