A berlin girl stands in the goal of the sg garitz/nudlingen

Stephanie piske wants to enjoy again. "It’s really great when the spectators join in", says the SG garitz/nudlingen goalkeeper, who has practically grown up with handball. "I was one week old when my dad, also a handball player, took me to the gym. When i was seven years old, i started playing myself", the berlin native, who played for TSV tempelhof-mariendorf for many years, says. As a field player. Lower franconia only became an issue ten years ago, thanks to her friend. Relocation, a new job in a rehabilitation center in bad kissingen – and the move to the SG garitz/nudlingen. "Because karla reinshagen was injured at the time, i went in goal", says the 37-year-old. And quickly came to terms with the change of roles. "My youth coach in berlin has made sure that the players are familiar with all positions. Then you also played in the goal."

Stephanie piske is a stoic between the posts. One who takes her strength out of the equation. One who doesn’t have to raise her voice to show leadership qualities. On and off the pitch. "Stephanie is a person and our team leader. We work excellently together, and I would like to see it continue like this", SG coach harun tucovic speaks with respect of his number "15", the tucovic to the best goalkeepers in the league pays. "With her experience, but also her sporting ambition, she has played a decisive role in the team’s success." Stephanie piske has no intention of retiring, even though she has a talented successor in pia kunzmann. "It’s funny. I’m about twice as old as pia, but I’ve only been in goal half as long as she has", says the captain. And speaks of a very harmonious relationship. "I think we complement each other. I can still learn from her. It’s good to have someone else in this position by your side. When the time comes, i will gladly give pia the preference. At the moment, however, I have a lot of spab."

Stephanie piske works in social consulting and quality management.



Competence that benefits the younger players in particular. "As captain, I want to work with the team council to keep an open ear for the players and mediate between the team and the coach. If we all continue to develop, success is possible." It’s no coincidence for the goalkeeper that the team got off to a brilliant start with two wins. "Our young players have settled in wonderfully. And we got a coach who has an eye for every single player, but also for the big picture."

Bdi head before elections: people have listened far too little

Industry president dieter kempf has acknowledged political and business failures in the east – and called for a joint effort, especially for better infrastructure.

Shortly before the state elections in brandenburg and saxony, kempf told the deutsche presse-agentur: "we have listened far too little to the people in eastern germany and also looked too little at them. The regional differences in eastern germany are sometimes enormous. In some places, we are experiencing a veritable exodus from the villages."

A few days before the state elections on sunday in brandenburg and saxony, the president of the federation of german industry (bdi) said: "we need a joint effort to significantly improve the infrastructure in the east in particular." This is a joint task of politics and economy. "For too long, the mistake was made of equating infrastructure with road construction. But infrastructure is so much more – it’s also internet access, the village pub, the baker and the local doctor. This has been neglected. I can understand when people there feel they have not been noticed."
