“I don’t want you to get excited…” GS Caltex says PS will win

The Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Women’s Game 5 between GS Caltex and Heungkuk Sinsung took place at Jangchung Gymnasium in Seoul on February 2. Before the game, GS Caltex head coach Cha Sang-hyun emphasized the importance of the first game after the All-Star break.

“We had a long break, but we made up for it,” Cha said. GS Caltex is playing its first game in 16 days due to the All-Star break after winning two straight games, including a 3-1 victory over 안전 토토사이트 Heungkuk Saengsim on March 17.

GS Caltex finished the first half of the season in third place, but it’s still too early to tell what spring volleyball will bring. With 43 points (15 wins, 9 losses), GS Caltex is only four points behind fourth-place Jungkwanjang (12 wins, 13 losses). IBK (33 points) rounds out the top five.

“We need to keep doing what we’ve been doing,” Cha said. “The battle for position becomes more important from the fifth round onwards, as IBK is still within striking distance of third place,” he pointed out. “It’s all about how many points we can get against the fourth and fifth places,” he said, emphasizing that “even if we lose (another game), we have to take that one point.”

What kind of performance does GS Caltex need to achieve in the remaining matches to guarantee spring volleyball? “I’m thinking about it in my mind,” Cha said. “But it doesn’t go well when I get excited,” he said, “I have an idea, but I’m not going to tell you,” he added, avoiding an immediate answer.

The setters were expected to play well. “I want Kim Ji-won and Lee Yoon-shin to grow more,” Cha said, adding, “We don’t talk to each other anymore because we’re tired, but we talk in training.” “It’s easier said than done when you have to use a fastball and go out as the main attacker, but I’m ordering them little by little,” he added.

GS Caltex finished fifth last season, missing out on the postseason (PS). It remains to be seen if the team will be able to redeem its honor this spring.
