BENDIGO volleyballer Eliza Karley Hynes and her OrPo team-mates have finished the 2013-14 Finnish national women’s league season as runners-up.
Hynes was presented with a silver medal after her squad lost the fifth match in the best-of-seven championship finals series to LP Viesti on Saturday night.
Orpo battled bravely throughout the finals campaign, going down in five sets in the first two games against the reigning champions before claiming victory in the third.
But they couldn’t repeat that feat last weekend and were beaten 3-0 in their last two matches.
Hynes starred during her first year as a professional player with the team.
