Abondanza “Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-soo, good influence on young players”
Heungkuk Life Women’s Professional Volleyball Head Coach Marcello Abondanza has asked veterans Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-ji to lead the younger players.
Heungkuk Life, which is training in Japan, played a scrimmage against JT Marvels with Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-ji on the bench at the same time.
Unlike the previous day, Heungkuk Life used both Kim Yeon-kyung and Kim Soo-ji in a practice game against JT Marvels in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan on March 16. Kim played for the JT Marvels from 2009 to 2011, helping the organization win its first championship in 2011.
The Japanese JT Marvels played with two male coaches due to a shortage of players due to national team call-ups. In the three-set match, Heungkuk Life went 1-2.
Kim Yeon-kyung scored a game-high 18 points. Kim Mi-yeon followed with 12 points. Kim Soo-ji, playing for the first time in the Japan training camp, scored five points.
After the game, Abondanza said, “It’s been a while since they’ve been playing together, but they’re both experienced and have great technique and mental strength, so they’ll have a good impact on the younger players.”온라인바카라
“We’re going to focus on getting the setter and attacker to work together in terms of height and speed, and we’re going to see how stable they can be in all aspects of blocking, attacking, and receiving,” Abondanza said.
Heungkuk Life will play one more practice match against JT on the 19th before returning home on the 20th.
