It took a journey to Istanbul to wrap things up — at least for this season.

The final spot for the 2023 Gophers roster was filled Wednesday with the announcement that Turkish libero Zeynep Palabiyik will join the team this month. The exact date isn't pinned down because she is playing with the Turkish national team in an attempt to qualify for the 2024 European Championships.

"It's certainly late," Cook said about Palabiyik's commitment, "but you'd rather be right than first, I guess. I feel pretty good about our roster now, heading into fall camp next week."

Sounds like one of Superman's archrivals. I hope no one tricks her into saying her name backwards.
Anyhoo...Welcome aboard!
