Former Tiger Svenja Engelhardt Takes Austrian Title With SVS Post Schwechat

In just her first season playing professionally in Europe, former Tiger standout Svenja Engelhardt helped guide her SVS Post Schwechat team to the Austrian championship.  Taking the No. 1 seed into the club championships, SVS Post Schwechat continued their success from the regular season into the postseason by claiming the national title.  Engelhardt and her team took the best-of-seven championship series from ASKÖ Linz, 4-1, after winning the final match of the series in a hard fought five-set match.

Earlier this season, Engelhardt and SVS Post Schwechat finished in the quarterfinals of the CEV Cup in January to finish as one of the top-8 teams in the European competition.
