The year began last Friday with a match against Temple, which Oregon won in three straight sets. Saturday saw a doubleheader against St. John’s and Navy in the Temple Invitational. Against St. John’s, the Ducks were off to a fast start and a 25-12 first set win. They didn’t look back. Their toughest set saw them down in the third 19-15, but they came back to win the match and win nine straight to take three games over the weekend. Martenne Bettendorf suffered an ankle injury against St. John’s and sat out the match against Navy.
