“There are so many things to improve on.”

Heungkuk Life Insurance middle blocker Lee Joo-ah (22) is one of the best middle blockers this season. With Kim Chae-yeon missing due to injury, he and Kim Na-hee are in charge of Heungkuk Life Center.

Lee Joo-ah, who played 33 games (119 sets) last season and recorded 243 points and 0.723 blocks per set, setting personal career high records, is showing her improved skills this season. He played 15 games (57 sets) and recorded 139 points, 45.28 fast break success rate (6th place), and 0.60 blocking per set (7th place). In particular, with a mobile attack success rate of 52.78%, it ranked first, beating Dahyun Lee of Hyundai Engineering & Construction (50%) and Yoona Bae of Korea Expressway Corporation (47.06%).

In the match against KGC Ginseng Corporation held in Daejeon on the 17th, he scored 20+ points for the first time since his debut. He scored only 19 offensive points. Joo-ah Lee’s moving attack, KGC Ginseng Corporation’s middle blocker, could not control it at all. Heungkuk Life coach Kwon Soon-chan also said to Lee Joo-ah, “Wouldn’t it be possible to score more points if we do this? Before that, he didn’t have much of a move attack, but it looked good. You have to do this. It was nice to see Joo Ah making a point,” he praised. 토토

Lee Joo-ah said, “The coach says blocking is important.” He said, “I think it would have been nice if he had scored more in blocking, but it’s a pity that he only caught one.”

His chemistry with setter Kim Da-sol is getting better with each game. Lee Joo-ah said, “I’m getting along well with Da-sol unnie these days. He’s breathing a lot better. Most of all, I think I can do a good job because the receiving sisters are well received and uploaded.”

This season is my 5th year as a pro. He is speeding up his growth little by little. During the off-season, he was recruited by the César to gain international experience.

Lee Joo-ah said, “I don’t think there is a secret to growth. When the setters put it up, I just think that I have to hit it because there is no one-blocker in front of me. I try to hit more confidently than before.”

When you think about it, there are many things you need to improve.

“There are still so many things that need to be improved,” he said. There are too many defenses that can be successful, such as double-linking. (Kim) Na-hee unnie is really good at connecting heretics, so I think a lot about wanting to learn. I have to do that, but it’s not easy,” she laughs.

Heungkuk Life Insurance is cruising after overcoming the sluggishness of 6th place last season. With a record of 35 points, 12 wins and 3 losses, it is second in the league after leader Hyundai Engineering & Construction (38 points, 14 wins). It is 11 points behind Korea Expressway Corporation (24 points, 8 wins, 6 losses) in 3rd place. I can afford it.

Lee Joo-ah said, “The team has become solid. The skills of the players have also improved, and they are uniting around the older sisters. I am also playing the game with a sense of responsibility that I have to hit well.”
