But the opportunity didn’t come easily.As the 2023-2024 season opened and Korean Air played 14 matches, Espejo appeared in eight and made only one start, but with main outside hitter Jeong Ji-seok still recovering from injury and Jeong Jung-yong struggling, he was given a valuable opportunity.In his second career start on Sept. 13, Espejo scored 19 points (55.56 percent attack percentage), including four service aces, to help the team snap a three-game losing streak.She set new personal records for kills, digs, and attack percentage, as well as attack percentage (29.03%), blocks (2), and digs (10).Espejo, who clinched the match with a service ace at 23-22 스포츠토토존 in the second set, followed it up with two service points in the third set to give the team a 10-1 lead.
