‘Volleyball Empress’ Kim Yeon-kyung (35, Incheon Heungkuk Life Insurance) hinted at retirement. Was it because of the thought of becoming the last flame? The Empress got even stronger, and Heungkuk Life Insurance rose to the sole lead in 28 games after the opening of this season.
Heungkuk Life Insurance, led by acting manager Kim Dae-gyeong (36), shut out Gwangju Pepper Savings Bank with a set score of 3-0 (25-17 25-18 25-19) in the Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s home game held at Incheon Samsan Gymnasium on the 15th. made it
Heungkuk Life Insurance, who recorded 63 points, is the same as Suwon Hyundai Engineering & Construction (61 points) with 21 wins and 7 losses, but has risen to first place for the first time this season ahead of points.
While Hyundai E&C was slowing down due to the replacement of foreign players and injuries to key players, Heungkuk Life Insurance got a chance to rise to the top. However, on the 11th, I had to postpone the opportunity by losing in the home game against Hwaseong IBK Industrial Bank.
Hyundai E&C seldom found stability. On the 14th, Gimcheon Korea Expressway Corporation was also defeated, and the opportunity returned to Heungkuk Life Insurance. The opponent is the lowest ranked Pepper Savings Bank, who won all four matches this season. However, recently, the performance has improved enough to catch the leading Hyundai E&C, so it was not possible to be vigilant.
I couldn’t miss a golden opportunity twice in a row. Kim Yeon-kyung stood at the forefront. He harassed Pepper Savings Bank with a high attack success rate of 63.33% and led the team to victory with 19 points, the most in the team.
In the midst of Kim Yeon-kyung’s great success, Pepper Savings Bank was unable to use its strength. Yelena Mrazenovic scored 16 points and Lee Joo-ah added 10 points to secure an easy victory. 슬롯사이트
Heungkuk Life Insurance had a big wave this season. There was a skit in which the manager and general manager resigned at the same time, and the club bowed its head to the fans by issuing an official apology. Acting coach Lee Young-soo, who replaced coach Kwon Soon-chan, resigned after playing only one game, and coach Kim Dae-kyung took over the role. Fans called him ‘Gamdaedae’, saying that he was the ‘acting director’s acting manager’.
It was an unexpected position, so there wasn’t much he could do. He also knew better than anyone that his role was limited and that the team needed a manager. However, he kept the team in trouble with the hope that the players would not be shaken anymore.
Veterans, including Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Hae-ran (39), gave more strength, and juniors followed them well and worked hard together, finally rising to the top.
Heungkuk Life Insurance won the regular league championship in the 2018-2019 season. After 4 seasons, they are preparing to rise to the top again. In the 2020-2021 season, despite Kim Yeon-kyung’s return, twin sisters Lee Jae-young and Da-young, who were caught up in ‘school violence’, left the team and lost the leading position to Seoul GS Caltex at the last minute and stayed in runner-up. Kim Yeon-kyung returned, but suffered an internal conflict. It is an all the more valuable achievement because it has endured and climbed to first place.
The important thing is from now on. In the remaining 8 games, Hyundai E&C must overcome the chase. For Hyundai E&C, the new foreign player Yvone Montaño, who recently joined, is not living up to expectations, but there is a possibility that his power will stabilize as he filled the gap that was regrettable. The confrontation remains. The final match on the 19th of next month could be the first place match.
