DDN: Raiders repeat as volleyball champions, will host league tourney

Excerpt from the Dayton Daily News

Travers Green experienced a magical season in his first year as Wright State volleyball coach in 2022, going 18-0 to win the Horizon League regular-season crown, storming to the conference tourney title and going 28-4 overall.

And though he might have preferred an adversity-free run at times this season, he wouldn’t change a thing after the Raiders went on a rampage to repeat as champs and earn the No. 1 seed in the league tourney.

They won their last seven matches and 10 of their final 11 to win the crown with a 15-3 mark. They’re 19-10 overall going into the six-team event at McLin Gym.

“We’ve just got a competitive and driven group — especially this year,” Green said.

“When things don’t go your way, you don’t know how they’re going to respond. But they’ve faced it, and the results speak for themselves.”

The Raiders, who started 9-9, were hit with a rash of injuries, including losing first-team all-league senior Taylor Bransfield for the year.
