Atlanta Vibe Activate Jehláøová

February 8, 2024 - Pro Volleyball Federation (PVF) - Atlanta Vibe News Release

The Atlanta Vibe have activated middle blocker Magdalena Jehláøová and waived middle blocker Chiamaka Nwokolo, the organization announced today. An updated roster is attached.

Jehláøová (yell-uh-HAH-shuh-vuh) was selected with the No. 2 overall pick by the San Diego Mojo in the 2023 Inaugural Pro Volleyball Federation Draft, but was traded to Atlanta in a Draft-day trade that sent Ali Bastianelli and Kendra Dahlke to San Diego.

In five seasons at Washington State, Jehláøová was a three-time AVCA All-America selection and was a four-time All-Pac 12 honoree. She left WSU as the Cougars' all-time blocks leader (769 total) and as a member of the 1,000-kill club (1,253 career), and finished her collegiate career averaging 2.32 kills, 1.4 blocks and 3.31 points per set (539 played).

Originally from Pøerov, Czech Republic, Jehláøová has been competing for the Czech Republic National Team since 2017. Her career with her national team is highlighted by a European Golden League tournament Championship in 2019 and a second-place finish in the tournament in 2022.

The Vibe (3-0) host the Grand Rapids Rise (1-0) Friday night at 7:00 p.m. at Gas South Arena in Duluth, Ga. The team will honor National Heart Health Awareness Month with a "Red-Out" in partnership with the American Heart Association.
