The battle for the V-League men's volleyball rankings is becoming increasingly fierce.
KEPCO won with a set score of 3-0 (25-16, 25-20, 25-16) in the match against KB Insurance in the 4th round of the Dodram 2023-2024 V-League Men's Division held at Uijeongbu Gymnasium on the 18th.
KEPCO, which defeated Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance with a set score of 3-0 on the 11th, succeeded in winning three times in a row by defeating KB Insurance. Although they are still in 5th place, the competition in spring volleyball is becoming more intense. The difference in points between Korea Electric Power Corporation and third-place OK Financial Group is only two points. The gap with first place Woori Card is also 6 points. You can catch up well in rounds 5 and 6.
Foreign outside hitter Thais scored 21 points and had an attack success rate of 76%. Native middle blocker Shin Young-seok scored 11 points and recorded an attack success rate of 100%. Outside hitter Seongjin Lim scored 10 points and recorded an attack success rate of 35.29%. Outside hitter Seo Jae-deok contributed with 9 points, and middle blocker Park Chan-woong contributed with 5 points.
The driving force behind KEPCO's victory was a solid blocking wall. KEPCO, led by veteran middle blocker Shin Young-seok, dominated the blocking battle with a score of 15-4. With a 1-0 lead in the first set, Shin Young-seok blocked Hong Sang-hyuk's quick open and achieved his personal blocking score of 1,200. This is a record achieved for the first time in the history of the men's division. The 2nd place in all-time blocking scores is retired Lee Seon-gyu (1,056), and the 3rd place is Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance's Ha Hyun-yong (1,017).
Woori Card is still in first place, but while Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, which fell to 4th place with 4 consecutive losses, also suffered 4 consecutive losses, OK Financial Group, which rose to 3rd place, won all 4 rounds after losing all 3 rounds, igniting the battle for rankings. Additionally, as KEPCO continues its winning streak, the competition for rankings for spring volleyball is becoming more intense.
The final schedule for the 4th round of the V-League men's division is the match between Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance and Woori Card held at Daejeon Chungmu Gymnasium on the 19th. The All-Star break begins. The All-Star Game will be held at Incheon Samsan World Gymnasium on the 27th.
The 5th round schedule begins on the 30th. The first match of the 5th round is a match between 2nd place Korean Air and 6th place Hyundai Capital. The gap between Korean Air and Hyundai Capital is 11 points. Hyundai Capital can also continue competing for rankings heading into spring volleyball. The battle for the V-League men's rankings is chaos.
