Volleyball defeats league rival Green Bay

October 25, 2012

By Stephanie Metzger

The Cleveland State Vikings volleyball team downed the Green Bay Phoenix in three-straight sets for their eighth Horizon League victory of the year on Saturday.

The Phoenix, who had just defeated league rival Youngstown State in five sets on Friday, posted an 11-11 overall record before Saturday.

The Vikings, who are now 16-6 on the season, rolled over the Phoenix during the first two sets before battling to take the third.

Green Bay managed a two-point lead in the third set, but the Vikings overcame the deficit with three straight points to take the lead before taking on two more to secure the 25-23 victory.

Freshman Dana Roberts earned her third double-double of the season as she posted 31 assists and 12 digs. Senior Marie Frease led the team with 10 kills and Kara Koch, who was named Horizon League Player of the Week earlier this season, posted nine kills. Koch currently leads the league in kills and has seven double-doubles.

The Vikings also forced six errors on Green Bay while holding the Phoenix to a blank hitting percentage.

"I thought we actually played pretty well despite losing in three," noted Green Bay coach Debbie Kirch. She accredited the Vikings with the edge and said that Cleveland State’s offensive output was the difference-maker.

“Cleveland State is a good team,” she said. “Just a couple of runs here and there made the difference.”

Next, the Vikings head to Chicago, Ill. for a pair of matches against University of Illinois at Chicago and Loyola University.
