L’Spar Girona close today preseason in Santa Coloma against Tordera. The preparation phase reaches the final stretch and next Saturday, with a demanding match in Zaragoza, Uni will open an exciting season, although Laura Antoja will still need more time to form a real team. In fact, the coach still needs two pieces to arrive, the star signing, Kelsey Mitchell, and the versatile Morgan Bertsch. Both played in the WNBA this summer. Mitchell (Indiana Fever) has already closed his participation, while Bertsch is still competing in the play-offs and will play the second game tomorrow against the Las Vegas Aces. with the Chicago Sky (they lost the first), where he shares a team with Rebekah Gardner, who is injured.
In Zaragoza, Uni will appear with a team still in training and with casualties, certainly those of Etxarri and Mendy, and it will be necessary to see how Ainhoa López evolves. The other weekend Girona will play in the Catalan League in La Seu, and the following weekend they will resume the Women’s League in Fontajau against Barça. It is in this match that the club hopes to make Kelsey Mitchell’s debut, even though it will not be long before he arrives in Girona. The game will be played on Saturday, October 7 at a time yet to be confirmed. It had to be moved forward because on the afternoon of the 8th Real Madrid arrives in Girona in one of the most anticipated ACB league matches of the season. The American now has a few days of vacation.
Mitchell is a compulsive scorer who should give the Girona supporters many afternoons of glory. She was selected in the second position of the draft in 2018 and has been international with the constellation of stars of the US national team. With his addition and, a few days later, that of Bertsch, the Uni will have the full squad and will be able to finish profiling the blog Laura Antoja dreams of.
