GS Caltex defeated IBK Industrial Bank of Korea with a set score of 3-1 (26-28 25-23 25-13 25-21) in the women’s final of the 2023 Gumi-Dodram Cup Professional Volleyball Tournament held at Park Chung-hee Gymnasium in Gumi-si, Gyeongbuk on the 5th.
It is the second consecutive victory following last year’s Suncheon Championships.
GS Caltex, which had already been named as the team with the most cups, increased the number of victories to ‘6’.
Kang So-hui won the MVP award, and Kim Ji-won, the setter, received the Rising Star Award.
GS Caltex, along with Hyundai E&C and Heungkuk Life Insurance, were selected as the ‘top 3’ of the regular league ahead of the opening of the revision league last season.
However, contrary to expectations, ‘Spring Volleyball’ was frustrated by finishing in 5th place.
Then, I chose a big change in the off-season. Coach Sang-hyun Cha, who found the sluggish performance due to internal problems such as teamwork, took a scalpel to the coaching staff and players.
Coach Cha said, “Honestly, the team couldn’t come together as one.
So he felt the need for change with everyone from the coaching staff to the players.”
First of all, the atmosphere was changed by hiring new head coach Lim Dong-gyu and coach Gong Tae-hyun.
Foreign players also said goodbye to MoMA (currently Hyundai Engineering & Construction) and hired Gisele Silva, an apogee spiker.
In addition, in order to solve the problem of height, which was pointed out as a weakness, the oldest active middle blocker Dae-young Jeong was recruited as a free agent (FA).
Changes were also made to the captaincy.
Kang So-hui was entrusted with the captaincy, which had been held by senior members of the team.
Although he is young, it is based on the judgment that he will be able to get along well with the players as he is a representative of the team.
The vice-captain was also handed over to Yoo Seo-yeon.
Kang So-hui took the lead in changing the atmosphere by leading the championship in the cup competition.
In the final, he scored 21 points, the second highest after Yoo Seo-yeon (22 points), and the attack success rate (47.62%) and attack efficiency (42.86%) were the highest among both teams.
Coach Cha smiled, saying, “The coaching staff and players all tried to make changes and followed them well, but that part came out well as a result.
Thank you to everyone.” After successfully completing the cup competition, GS Caltex can now prepare for the upcoming regular season.
Meanwhile, Korean Air beat Woori Card in the men’s group A match held at the Park Chung-hee Gymnasium on the 6th with a set score of 3-0 (25-21 25-21 25-19).
Korean Air sent five players, including Geopo Ji-seok Jeong and Lim Dong-hyuk, to the national team participating in the Asian Men’s Volleyball Championships, which will open on the 19th.
Korean Air opened the era of the dynasty by winning the regular league and championship finals with the momentum of winning the cup last year, and winning the regular league and championship finals in three years.
In the following game, OK Financial Group defeated KB Insurance by a set score of 3-0 (25-17 25-22 25-11).
