Wearing the same uniform with an alumni you shared with during your school days is an experience that can only be enjoyed at the mothers basketball tournament. Yang Ji-hee and Kim Bo-mi, who had formed a friendship at Supia Girls’ High School, also looked back on old memories after being on the same team for the first time in a while.안전놀이터
Supia Girls’ High School defeated the club’s basketball team’s spurt in the quarterfinals of the 42nd Korean Mother’s Basketball Tournament held at Sookmyung Girls’ High School Gymnasium on the 3rd and settled in the semifinals. Supia Girls’ High School aims to advance to the final in the quarterfinals against Sookmyung Girls’ High School on the 4th.
Yang Ji-hee, who competed in the 2019 and 2021 Mother Basketball Tournaments, competed again in two years. Due to her childcare, she did not have enough time to prepare for the competition, but as Jihee Yang skillfully dominated her goal as her body loosened up, she took the lead in Supia Girls’ High School’s complete victory.
But she, Yang Ji-hee, waved her hand. “She happens to be running every two years,” said Yang Ji-hee, who laughed and said, “After giving birth, she didn’t have enough time to exercise. On her first attack, she was fouled, and when she heard the ‘clap’ sound, she realized ‘Oh, you’re here to play basketball’. Before the competition, in the basement of her apartment building, she threw 10 shots, but she couldn’t throw any more. Even her husband seriously told her not to go out,” she said.
Sookmyung Girls’ High School, which will play against Supia Girls’ High School in the semifinals, will miss Shin Hye-in, Park Chae-jung, and Yang Eun-joo due to the match time and Sookmyung Girls’ High School coach Lim Hyun-ji’s wedding. For Supia Girls’ High School, which has an advantage in terms of available students, it is worth aiming to advance to the finals.
Regarding this, Yang Ji-hee said, “Still, I think Sookmyung Girls’ High School will have an advantage. I heard that Sookmyung Girls’ High School gathers once a month to exercise. On the other hand, we lack training. Today was very hard physically. I went to high school in the 2000s, but it was hard to play with students in the 2000s,” she laughed.
Supia Girls’ Middle School – Playing with Kim Bo-mi, a two-year junior at Supia Girls’ High School, will remain as a memory. They have never played on the same team since their professional debut. In particular, Kim Bo-mi did not meet her qualifications for participation only three years after her retirement. In place of Inseong Girls’ High School, which had declared withdrawal, a face-to-face match was held against the club’s basketball team, Spurt, and only played in the quarterfinals as an exception. I can’t run after 4th.
Kim Bo-mi said, “I thought my heart would explode. It was so hard that the sound of her heart even resonated in her head, but she communicated with (Yang) Ji-hee just by looking at her eyes. I’ve known her for about 20 years, and she knows it. She’s a senior who’s good at basketball, so it was comfortable,” she said. Kim Bo-mi continued, “She was a senior I really liked during my school days. Doesn’t she have a style of taking good care of her while swearing at each other?” she laughed.
Yang Ji-hee then said, “It’s been a long time since I ran with (Kim) Bomi and I remembered the old days. Bomi was an all-around player. But today, I ran with my tall sisters, so they tried to do something that was too comfortable,” she said.
Meanwhile, Yang Jeong-ok will play in place of Kim Bo-mi from the quarterfinals. Kim Bo-mi said, “I can’t play, but I don’t worry because a better senior is joining. I feel like I can cheer for them with ease,” she said.
