Israel’s national women’s volleyball team ended its first European Championships in 40 years without taking a single set after falling to a 3-0 defeat (25- 11, 25-18, 25-16) to the Czech Republic in Zrenjanin, Serbia on Monday evening.

Arie Selinger had hoped his team would be able to reach the quarterfinals of the tournament, but Israel finished rock-bottom of Pool C after also failing to take a set in defeats to Poland and Romania on Saturday and Sunday.

“This is a big disappointment.

I expected a lot more,” Selinger said. “I guess we are not mentally or physically ready yet. We failed to play to potential in each of the three matches.

“I believed we could reach the quarterfinals and had we played like I know we can, we might have done so.”
