Heungkuk Saengsaeng women’s professional volleyball’s “hopeful” Jung Yoon-ju once again fulfilled her potential in a cup tournament.
Jung Yoon-ju scored 17 points to lead Heungkuk Saengsaeng to a 3-0 straight-sets victory over Thailand’s Chonburi Supreme in the second match of Group B at the Gumi Dodram Cup Professional Volleyball Tournament 2023 (Gumi Dodram Cup) at Park Jung-hee Gymnasium in Gumi on Monday.바카라
Jung Yoon-ju was the top scorer for both teams on the day. She also had a 46.88% attack success rate. But it wasn’t just her stats that made her stand out, it was her daring back-row attacks whenever and wherever she could.
The highlight of the day came in the second set when she was up 7-5. After a long rally, it was amazing to see Jung, who was in the back row, connect with a difficult double toss and score with a pipe back attack. Even coach Marcello Abondanza was so happy that he jumped up and down and high-fived her.
Not only that, but she also froze the opposing defense in their tracks with her daring attacks from behind whenever she got the chance. It was a game that showed just how much potential she has.
Coach Abondanza said, “It’s not just about her technical growth, it’s about her confidence and the way she took on the challenge.” He added, “A goal is a goal, but I was very happy to see her grow and realize herself.”
“The coach always emphasizes preparing for a follow-up attack, regardless of whether the ball comes up well or not,” he said, “and I have the mindset that if I’m defending, it will come up to me at any time.”
Since the team has to hit a lot more behind the ball than before, intense physical training is a must. “Not only do we work hard on our physical fitness, but we also work hard on the ball,” Jung said. “I’m discovering things I didn’t know before while working with a foreign coach. It’s a great feeling of accomplishment when you learn things one by one and achieve them.”
Although she won’t be competing in the Cup, Kim Yeon-kyung, the “volleyball queen,” also gives Jung Yoon-ju affectionate advice. “She gives me a lot of advice on things like blocking positions for attackers,” Jung said.
After breaking out in her rookie season in 2021-22, Jeong didn’t play much last season in her second year and often stayed in the warm-up zone. She was occasionally used as a one-point server.
“I think the Cup is a good opportunity for players who haven’t played much,” he said, “and I’m trying to take advantage of it.” “I’m trying to do my best in the Cup,” he added. “I want to do my best in the Cup and keep improving so that I can help the team in the V-League,” he added.
