‘2040 Toss’ Road Construction Lee Yoon-jung The reason why the setter can’t rest

On the 6th, Ginseng Corporation attempted toss 132 times, broke the season 2000 toss, and Expressway Corporation won 3-1. Expressway

Corporation defeated Ginseng Corporation and ran for 2 consecutive wins after 3 consecutive losses.

Korea Expressway Corporation High Pass, led by coach Kim Jong-min, scored a set score of 3-1 (30-28, 26-24, 20-25 ,28-26). The Korea Expressway Corporation, which escaped from three consecutive losses by winning 3-2 in the first game of the new year against Ginseng Corporation on the 3rd, won 3 points against Ginseng Corporation, which they met again after 3 days, and secured 3rd place (10 wins). 9 losses).

The Korea Expressway Corporation led the attack with new foreign players Cat Bell and Bae Yuna, who made their debut on the day, scoring 20 points each, and Jeon Sae-yan also scored 19 points. And behind the newly formed triangular formation, Jeong Dae-young scored 10 points and Moon Jeong-won scored 9 points. On this day, the road construction did not focus the attack on a specific player, and the 5 strikers tried to attack evenly.

A must-have backup setter in long-term races

In international competitions or short-term competitions with a short schedule, it is possible for one main setter to play all games full-time, but in long-term races where more than 30 games are played in a season, a backup setter must be present to manage the physical strength of the main setter. . In fact, each club in the V-League women’s division has at least one backup setter who can fill the vacancy of the starter, preparing for the absence of the starter setter that may occur. 

Leading Hyundai Engineering & Construction Hillstate is a team in which Dain Kim’s setter plays a large role, with Dain Kim’s set share reaching a whopping 74.29%. However, after the end of last season, Hyundai E&C re-signed a three-year contract with veteran setter Lee Na-yeon, who obtained free agency qualification, for a total of 495 million won, solidifying her position as a backup setter. In addition, in the rookie draft in September of last year, Kim Sa-rang, setter of Hanbom High School, was nominated in the 2nd round and 1st place to prepare for the future.

On the 6th, Heungkuk Life Insurance Pink Spiders, coached by Kim Ki-joong, had setter Park Hye-jin out of the season due to knee surgery, and setter Kim Da-sol was struggling through the season alone. Accordingly, Heungkuk Life Insurance recruited setter Lee Won-jung, who had not had many opportunities at GS Caltex, by giving him the right to nominate a rookie in the first round of the next season through a trade with GS Caltex KIXX on December 26 of last year. And setter Lee Won-jung was put in as a substitute in the match against Hyundai E&C on the 29th and played an active role in leading Heungkuk Life Insurance to a 3-1 victory.

The reason why GS Caltex was able to exchange valuable setter resources for the right to name a rookie is that in addition to setter Ahn Hye-jin, the team has a reliable backup setter named Kim Ji-won. Setter Kim Ji-won, who was first overall in the 2020 rookie draft, made a mark by playing an active role as the main setter when GS Caltex won the Cup last summer. Setter Kim Ji-won recorded a set occupancy rate of 26.21% and a set success rate of 38.39% this season as well, making an excellent performance as a backup setter.

Ginseng Corporation, where Yeom Hye-seon is the main player, is also preparing for unexpected variables by appointing various backup setters, including Kim Chae-na, Kim Hyeon-ji, and Park Eun-ji, a setter recruited through trade. AI Peppers, the lowest-ranking Pepper Savings Bank, is playing most of the games with setter Lee Go-eun, who was recruited as a free agent this season. However, there is no shortage of backup setter resources, such as setter Lee Hyun, who played an active role as a main player last season, setter with Dr. Lee, the first pick in the 2021 draft, and tall setter Gusol of 181cm. 안전놀이터

Full-time active due to lack of backup setter experience

When setter Lee Yoon-jeong, who had been active in unemployment volleyball for Suwon City Hall for six years, succeeded in entering the pros by being nominated by the Korea Expressway Corporation in the second round of the 2021 rookie draft, her role was only ‘insurance’ for setter Lee Go-eun, the main player. . However, as setter Lee Yun-jeong entered the game, Korea Expressway Corporation began to rise rapidly, and setter Lee Yoon-jeong, who contributed greatly to Korea Expressway Corporation’s second place in the regular league, became the oldest (24 years old) rookie of the year.

However, after the 2021-2022 season, Lee Go-eun, who obtained FA qualification, transferred to Pepper Savings Bank, and the ‘double setter system’ boasted by the Korea Expressway Corporation collapsed on one side. In the end, Korea Expressway Corporation coach Kim Jong-min decided to nurture prospect Ahn Ye-rim, the tallest (181cm) setter in the V-League. In fact, in the opening game against Hyundai E&C this season, the Korea Expressway Corporation attempted to employ an unconventional player by putting setter Ahn Ye-rim as the starting pitcher.

However, setter Ahn Ye-rim lacked much experience to play an active role as the main setter on the professional stage, and coach Kim Jong-min had no choice but to use last season’s rookie of the year setter Lee Yoon-jung. And setter Lee Yoon-jung is contributing to Korea Expressway Corporation competing for third place this season based on her excellent basic skills and stable game management. In fact, the reason why middle blocker Bae You-na has increased this season lies in her excellent teamwork with setter Lee Yoon-jung.

Setter Lee Yoon-jung, who has a set share of 67.93% this season, tries 2040 sets, the most among the setters of the 7 clubs. On the other hand, backup setter Ahn Ye-rim’s set share is only 8.46%, so it can be said that the road construction is more dependent on the main setter than any other team. In other words, if setter Lee Yoon-jung is shaken or cannot play due to variables such as injuries, the road construction will also be greatly shaken.

In fact, from the perspective of the Korea Expressway Corporation, which is heavily dependent on Lee Yun-jeong, it is necessary to deliberately let Ahn Ye-rim setter participate in more games to gain practical experience. However, there is no room for the current road construction, which is fighting fiercely for ranking in every game, to leisurely build experience as a backup setter. This is why setter Lee Yoon-jung, who has tried the most sets among the main setters of the 7 teams, will continue to play an active role as a built-in starter for the Korea Expressway Corporation.
