The Kress Center saw a lot of volleyball action over the weekend.
The Green Bay Phoenix went to five sets in both of their home conference matchups Friday and Saturday night.
The Phoenix entered the weekend on a five-match win streak and in first place in the Horizon League standings.
Wright State ended that streak on Friday night, stealing the match from Green Bay after going down 1-2.
The Phoenix dropped the first set to the Raiders (22-25), but came storming back to take sets two and three (25-22, 25-18).
It looked like Green Bay would win the match in four sets, as the Phoenix held a 19-15 lead late in the fourth.
However, the Raiders ripped off a 10-1 run to come back and push the match to five sets.
The teams traded points early in the decisive set, even at 11 apiece.
Wright State finished on a 4-0 run to win the set and match.
Hannah Vanden Berg led the Phoenix with 18 kills, three blocks, and two aces in the match.
Vanden Berg — a Little Chute native and graduate transfer from Marquette — continued her dominance in Green Bay’s matchup against Northern Kentucky on Saturday.
She registered 19 kills to lead the Phoenix to a victory over the visiting Norse.
Northern Kentucky easily took set one (25-17), but the Phoenix bounced back to take set two (25-16).
The teams traded sets yet again, with the Norse winning set three (25-18), and Green Bay winning set four (25-22).
The Phoenix raced out to a 10-2 lead in the fifth set and never relinquished it, taking the set 15-8 to win the match.
With the win, Green Bay is now 8-11 overall and tied for first-place in the Horizon League with Milwaukee with a 5-1 conference record.
