GS Caltex coach Sang-Hyeon Cha, who is continuing his hopes for spring volleyball, was worried that the overall condition of the team was poor.

GS Caltex will face off against IBK Industrial Bank of Korea in the 5th round of the 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Division at Hwaseong Gymnasium on the 16th. 

Prior to the game, GS Caltex had 39 points (13 wins, 15 losses), and was in 5th place behind Korea Expressway Corporation (47 points, 16 wins, 12 losses) and KGC Ginseng Corporation (41 points, 13 wins, 15 losses). In order to advance to the semi-playoffs, the final line of spring volleyball, 1 point is a precious situation. 안전놀이터

When asked about the situation in which the road construction company ran away by accumulating 3 points by catching Hyundai E&C 3-1 on the 14th, coach Cha laughed weakly and said, “The players are not in very good condition, and each player has large and small injuries, so I am worried. It is,” he replied. He continued, “Since the schedule continues to repeat Thursday’s game and Sunday’s game, I didn’t train separately for the tactical part. Conditions were adjusted so that each player could demonstrate their skills, and training was focused on video analysis.”

In this game, instead of Ahn Hye-jin, who played as the main setter, Kim Ji-won starts. This is because Ahn Hye-jin suffered from the loss of her maternal grandmother recently. According to the club officials, she shed many tears because Ahn Hye-jin was raised by her maternal grandmother when she was young. Director Cha also said, “(Ahn) Hyejin completed the training, but her physical condition overall is down. Even before her grandmother’s award, her body wasn’t very good,” he explained, “(Kim) Ji-won is starting as a starter, so I expect that the use of middle blockers will increase a little.”

Director Kim Ho-cheol of IBK Industrial Bank against GS Caltex said, “The team atmosphere seems to be okay through the last victory over Heungkuk Life Insurance (11th). But our players have so many ups and downs that even I can’t get my bearings. I ordered to work hard with the mindset that every game is the last game.”

This season, GS Caltex and IBK Industrial Bank of Korea have faced each other four times before the game, and are facing a tight match with 2 wins and 2 losses. However, in the recent match, the 4th round on the 13th of last month, GS Caltex won 3-0. Regarding this, coach Kim said, “GS Caltex has good organization and excellent defense, so every time we face each other, there is always a tough game.” Today, as Yeonkyung is leaving, I expect things to be a little different.”
