[Performance]A Trophy at Last

Hanyang University (HYU) boasts many talented athletes, and the volleyball team has many of them. After many years of hard work, the university volleyball team won a trophy in this year’s Cheongyang National Volleyball Competition, defeating its rival 3 to 1 in the final play-off. The competition was held in Cheongyang-gun from July 16th to 23rd, co-hosted by the Korean University Volleyball Federation (KUVF) and Cheongyang County Volleyball Federation. Among the players, the competition is commonly referred to as "the second competition." This is because there are two competitions during each summer vacation, aside from the year-round tournament during the spring and fall semesters. HYU volleyball team was not able to make it to the final round during the "first competition." Surprisingly enough, this is what has been happening with the team for several years. Director Yang Jin-woong commented, “Although their final rank was 6th, defeating last year's champions on the way boosted the team’s ego a lot.” The team captain let the director take the credit. “The training got much more organized and made it possible to win,” smiled Ryu Seong-ju (Sports Industry, 4th year). Ryu Seong-ju (Sports Industry, 4th yr), the captain of the volleyball team, commented that he wants to make it to the play-off this year and bring home a prize on August 1st. The toughest match in the competition was the final round, where HYU met Kyunghee University. “Our players couldn’t even move their legs in the first round,” reminisced Yang. That fear did not come from the loss to Kyunghee during the home-and-away matches earlier this year, but the fact that they had never made it to the final round. But with the director’s fierce encouragement, the players were able to play as well as they had during practice. The captain also revealed a secret source of encouragement from the coach. “He promised the team two more days of vacation and 1 million won prize money. That really raised the team spirit,” laughed Ryu. Both the director and the captain showed confidence for the coming home-and-away games. Ryu emphasized that although the HYU volleyball team did not make it to the play-offs for the past four years, it seems highly possible this year. “When I was on the university volleyball team, I was proud to be part of it. I will work hard to get that glory back,” said Yang with contentment. The upcoming season starts when school starts again and runs until October. Wish the team luck!
