Yang Hyo-jin’s surprise performance filling the void, Na Hyun-soo “I trusted my sisters and ran”

Yang Hyo-jin was missing, but Hyundai E&C was strong. And at the center was Na Hyun-soo, who played the first full-time game of the season. 

Hyundai E&C won a set score of 3-1 (20-25, 28-26, 25-17, 29-27) in the home match between GS Caltex and Dodram 2022-2023 V-League Women’s Round 3 held at Suwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 15th. did. With the victory on this day, Hyundai E&C succeeded in winning 13 consecutive wins, breaking the record for the most consecutive wins in the opening season they set last season.

It was a valuable victory in a situation where Yang Hyo-jin, the ‘main tower’, was missing. On this day, before the game, Hyundai Engineering & Construction faced the bad news that Yang Hyo-jin was absent due to Corona 19, but Na Hyun-soo, who came out on his behalf, fulfilled his role with Lee Da-hyun and filled the void well. 

On this day, Hyun-soo Na left a strong impression by scoring his personal best of 10 points. He also fulfilled his role as a middle blocker by raising 4 blocking points, and he did his part to boost the team atmosphere by attempting 8 fast attacks and succeeding 4 times. 

Hyundai E&C felt the absence of Yang Hyo-jin in the beginning and continued the cluttered atmosphere, but Na Hyun-soo exploded starting from the second set and was able to settle the atmosphere and seize victory. 

After the game, coach Kang Seong-hyeong also laughed at Na Hyun-soo’s performance. Coach Kang said, “It is not easy to fill the void as a starting player after continuing to be a backup, but he played his role well enough in the game he played as the first starter. Yang Hyo-jin was missing, but he filled the void well and solved it well,” he praised Na Hyun-soo and the players. 

Hwang Min-kyung also praised Na Hyeon-soo, saying, “I thought it would be difficult because (Yang) Hyo-jin was not there, but (Na) Hyeon-soo filled my place well, so I was able to win.” 

Na Hyun-soo said, “At first, I was nervous about the sudden start. However, from the coach to the older sisters, they encouraged me by saying that I could just do it with confidence, and since our team’s defense and receiving are good, I thought that the older sisters would cover it and I went into the game with the thought of doing only what I had to do.” 

It was not an easy task to fill the void left by the core middle blocker Yang Hyo-jin. However, Na Hyun-soo emptied his mind토토. He said, “I thought that I was not as good as (Yang) Hyo-jin, and that she would do everything I could,” and threw away her greed and took part in the game. And as a result, he played an important role in bringing important victories and great records to the team. 

At one time, he was given only limited duties as a ‘one point blocker’. However, last summer’s trade became a new turning point, and Na Hyun-soo’s endless efforts bore fruit on this day. 

Na Hyun-soo said, “I have been preparing for light blocking. He said that his seniors are telling him a lot, and he is preparing for blocking while watching (Lee) Dahyun and Hyojin unnie play.” 

On the other hand, Na Hyun-soo is expected to be used as a main player in the Pepper Savings Bank exhibition on the 18th. Because Yang Hyo-jin’s quarantine period is until the 18th, it is difficult to participate. In addition, Director Kang said, “The physical condition is more important than the return date. Yang Hyo-jin has been running for a long time, so I want to give him more rest.” 

Attention is focusing on whether Na Hyun-soo, who gained confidence through his first full-time appearance, will be able to fill the void left by Yang Hyo-jin and continue Hyundai E&C’s rising trend.
