Yerim Lee, the ‘outside heater’. Women’s volleyball transfer to Pepper Savings Bank

Women’s professional volleyball team Pepper Savings Bank announced today that it has signed free agent outside hitter Lee Yerim (26).

Lee, who played for Korea Expressway Corporation last season, was declared a free agent by the Korea Volleyball Organization 스포츠토토사이트 on Friday.

Selected by Hyundai E&C with the third overall pick in the second round of the 2015-2016 rookie draft, Lee briefly left the professional ranks to play for unemployment teams Daegu City Hall and Suwon City Hall before returning to the professional ranks in 2021 in a Roadworks uniform.

“I will be a player who leads the team with a new mindset and makes efforts,” Lee said, “and I am grateful to continue my career with Pepper Savings Bank.”

“We signed Lee to strengthen our defense and player base for the upcoming season,” said Jang Ji-yeon, head coach of Pepper Savings Bank. “We hope that Lee will continue to show what he did last season.”

Lee scored a career-high 103 points in the 2023-2024 season.
