A Jurassic woman discovers the highest level of Swiss basketball. Ajoulote Justine Sollberger played her first minute in the Swiss Basketball League Women on Thursday evening with Elfic Friborg. She caught a rebound in 1’17 of play.
Return to play after several operations
La Jurassienne evolves with the reigning Swiss champion club for two years. She went through several difficult months, battled a cancerous tumor to her right collarbone, and had several surgeries. Justine Sollberger enjoyed her return to the game all the more on Thursday evening.
The third Jurassienne in the National League A
According to our information, Justine Sollberger is the third Jurassian to reach such a level. “A lot of pride”, rejoices the young player. Before her, Ajoulote Pauline Winkler also played with Elfic Friborg (2009-2010 and 2010-2011), already coached by Romain Gaspoz, and Nicole Vindret played with Troistorrents in the early 2000s.
Romain Gaspoz’s confidence
Justine Sollberger enjoys the trust of Elfic Friborg coach Romain Gaspoz, former technician at BC Boncourt. She “is hanging on, she has a great mentality so it was legitimate to give her this opportunity”, explains Romain Gaspoz. / mmi
