Logan UPDATE: Lindsey Berg (Honolulu) and Logan Tom (Salt Lake City, Utah), both members of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team which won the silver medal in Beijing, were on opposite sides of the net in an early key test for their respective teams in the Italian Serie A professional league. Tom is part of a talented Asystel Volley Novara Team that routinely is in the hunt for the Serie A title.

Tom scored a Volley Novara-leading 21 points with 18 kills on 50 attacks and three blocks. She also converted 16 service receptions into 56 percent excellent reception mark. Volley Novara, now 3-2 and in fifth place with eight points, will face league-leader Monte Schiavo Banca Marche Jesi on Nov. 25. The match will feature a battle Tom and Heather Bown (Yorba Linda, Calif.), both three-time Olympians with the U.S. Women’s National Team. Volley Novara will also be part of the CEV Indesit Champions League as it takes on Russia’s Zarechie Odintsovo to open Pool D play on Dec. 3.
