Korea Expressway Corporation, which has many veterans, boarded the last spring volleyball train in 3rd place in the regular league.
The Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Regular League, which was so fierce that it was difficult to predict, has come to an end. The spring volleyball competition continued until the end, but the team that laughed was the Korea Expressway Corporation. With 60 points, KGC Ginseng Corporation (56 points), 4th place, canceled the semi-playoff by 4 points and went directly to the playoffs.
At the Women’s Division Media Day held before the start of the season, Hyundai Engineering & Construction, GS Caltex, and Heungkuk Life Insurance were selected as the top three for the 2022-2023 season. The name of ‘Korea Expressway Corporation’ was not mentioned anywhere.
There is also the strengthening of other teams, but there was also another reason. Lee Go-eun, who played an active role as the main setter in the 2021-2022 season, transferred to Pepper Savings Bank, and Lee Yoon-jung, a second-year professional, took the starting position on the team. Another setter, Ahn Ye-rim, born in 2001, is a 181cm tall setter who has been highly anticipated, but has not yet shown a stable appearance and does not have much experience. It was a situation where two young setters had to lead the team. In addition to this, Kelsey Payne (registered name Kelsey), who showed an impressive appearance at Korea Expressway Corporation in the 2020-2021~2021-2022 season, transferred to the Turkish League, and a new foreigner Katarina Jovic (registered name Katarina) joined this season. . He entered Korea Expressway Corporation with many question marks.
The road construction came out on the court with a change from last season. It seemed to be off to a decent start. He finished in 3rd place with a record of 3 wins and 3 losses in the first round. Katarina, a foreign player, could not erase Kelsey’s vacancy in the previous season, but she endured on the other side. The burden was relieved with a stable receive, which is a big advantage of the road construction. He also won the first round of the season by winning the Pepper Savings Bank match in the first round. At that time, Lim Myung-ok recorded a receive efficiency of 85.71% and showed his skills.
In the second round, it was more developed. It defeated IBK Industrial Bank, which could not win in the first round. They won all games except for Hyundai E&C and Heungkuk Life Insurance, which placed first and second. Thanks to that, I was able to keep my 3rd place. In the second round of the GS Caltex game, the veterans’ performance was more noticeable. At that time, Jung Dae-young caught 6 blocks, and Bae Yuna was the most scorer of both teams with 18 points including 2 blocks. Here, Lim Myung-ok, who shows no ups and downs, caught 23 after 25 dig attempts, and recorded a receiving efficiency of 64.71%.
Thanks to the strong veteran’s performance, the Korea Expressway Corporation continued to maintain its 3rd place. However, in the third round, he slowed down for a while. They won 2 wins against IBK Industrial Bank and KGC Ginseng Corporation, but they all took 2 points each with a 5-set victory, and 1 point against Heungkuk Life Insurance and only 5 points in the 3rd round.
Also, in the third round, Pepper Savings Bank was given the first win of the season. The team atmosphere gradually subsided as they lost to GS Caltex, the previous match. Fortunately, in the last game of the 3rd round, the KGC Ginseng Corporation, they won with a set score of 3-2 and kept their 3rd place in the 3rd round as well. Although they kept third place, the team’s ace, Park Jung-ah, was excluded from the entry due to a toe injury. Since the beginning of the season, I have not been able to show a cheerful rhythm, and I have not been able to breathe well with the setter and have not been able to show my skills. After that, he did not appear on the court in either game메이저사이트.
Eventually, the Korea Expressway Corporation took out a replacement card to reverse the atmosphere. Catherine Bell (Catbell) was recruited as a replacement for Katarina. Unlike Katarina, who was quiet and quiet, we brought in Catbell, who has experience in the V-League and has bright energy. Skill is also skill, but the road construction, which has many experienced players, needed a player with a bright personality that stands out.
Round 4 with Catbell has begun. From the first match of the 4th round, Catbell came out on the court confidently as a starter. His first game, which made his debut in the road construction uniform, was the KGC Ginseng Construction match. Catbell scored 20 points and led the team to victory. Because it was his first game, breathing with the setter was disappointing, but if the match was gradually matched, the foreign replacement of the road construction seemed highly likely to be successful.
