After a somewhat encouraging first part of the season, REC Volley finished 5th in the Women’s Elite class. Louise Narbonne, team captain, takes stock and talks about Rin’s ambitions.

Obviously, it was a great victory. After that, you still have to set the record straight since they were players under the age of 20. So reasoning was respected even if it was not necessary to fall into their trap. We did the job to win easily and it’s still a good result.

REC Volley is currently 5th in the Elite Championship. What do you think of your team’s first half of the season?

At the start of the season we had to go through some adjustment time because there were some changes in the squad over the summer. We lost the first match against Quimper but the real bad performance came against Bordeaux. Regardless, I think since then we’ve been on the right track. Despite the defeat, we managed to put in a good performance in Saint-Dier and managed to beat Evreux, who had yet to lose. We’re ramping up for the comeback leg, which is a very good sign.

What are your ambitions this season?

Obviously, our aim is to qualify for the play-offs and nothing else. This is the only ambition we have in mind. Not reaching this stage of competition would be a failure considering our workforce. After that, you still have to be careful because the elite level is getting better from year to year. We are five teams over four places in the play-offs, so there will be a jump formation. If this was the REC, that would be really disappointing. I think we have a team built to achieve goals.

Personally, How do you see your recent performance on the field?

I don’t like to talk about my personal shows. In my position (setter, editor’s note), I rely a lot on others to be able to perform. But I say my first tournament match is like a group. Now that we have developed mechanisms, it is easier to find each other. It’s still not perfect and never will be, but it’s a lot better than September.

You joined Rennes more than two years ago, how do you judge the club’s development?

There is already a very good volleyball project in Rennes and I think we are going in the right direction. We are the only club in France that has a men’s team and a women’s team at the second national level. It’s a huge thing and there’s also a craze being created around the club.

This weekend your team travels to Quimper as Finistiennes finish second in the championship. How did you prepare for this meeting?

Obviously we’re going to put together a game plan that we’ve been working on all week to try and destabilize our opponents. Beyond tactics, we will also focus on ourselves. We’ll have to do our best for the team, and if the Kimberois play a great game and are better than us, kneeling won’t matter. On the other hand, we have to make sure that we give our best. The match will be in contention, but we move above all to get points.
