The Willow Effect was Recognized by Both Team Coaches and Kim Yeon-kyung… “Heungkuk, Iin Its Entirety”

Willow Johnson (registered name Willow), a foreign female professional volleyball player, is a blessing to Heungkuk Life Insurance.

Heungkuk Life Insurance (62 points) defeated league leader Hyundai Engineering & Construction (65 points) on the 12th with a set score of 3-0 (25-14 25-18 25-20) and trailed by 3 points.

Until the All-Star break, there was an 8-point gap with Hyundai Engineering & Construction, but after Willow joined, they narrowed the gap with 4 consecutive wins. 파워볼사이트

Originally, Willow had not been selected in the V-League foreign player draft for the past two years, so there was a question mark as to whether she would be able to fill the void left by Jelena Mrazenovic (registered name Jelena).

She also received more attention as the daughter of legendary major league pitcher Randy Johnson.

However, Willow is proving her competitiveness with her own strength.

On this day, Willow also scored 14 points (36.67% attack success rate), including 3 serve aces, forming a solid triangle with Kim Yeon-kyung (17 points) and Reina Tokoku (registered name Reina, 11 points).

Heungkuk Life Insurance coach Marcello Abondanza and Kim Yeon-kyung, who met before and after the game, spoke in unison about the ‘Willow effect’.

Coach Abondanza said, “(After Willow’s joining) not only the offensive quality but also the attitude on the court has improved,” adding, “The players are working together better than before and the team spirit has improved.”

Kim Yeon-kyung, who watched Willow’s recruitment process, also gave a thumbs up.

Kim Yeon-kyung said, “I like watching other countries’ leagues, and I saw Willow’s active appearance through a video,” and added, “He is a player with a better attitude and skills than expected.

He said, “It’s really helpful to the team.”
