Oregon Volleyball Starts NCAA Tournament On The Road


The Oregon Ducks Volleyball team is headed to the postseason for the sixth straight year.

Jim Moore and the Oregon Women’s Volleyball team learned their fate on Sunday night. They will begin the NCAA Tournament on the road after picking up and At-Large bid in finishing 4th in the Pac-12 Conference this season. The Ducks have had somewhat of a roller-coaster end.

Two weeks ago they were undefeated on the road before meeting the California Schools. The team then finished the regular season in Corvallis beating Oregon State to take some momentum into the postseason.

Lindsay Vander Weide leads the team with better than 3 kills per set this season. Oregon had 14 kills per set overall and tied the Stanford Cardinal in the end averaging a .275 hitting percentage. The Ducks take the road warrior mentality into the NCAA Tournament.

The Oregon Ducks were 11-7 at home and lost just two road matches down the stretch against UCLA and last week against Stanford. the Tourney begins in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

The Oregon Ducks face a 24-6 Miami(Ohio) team on Thursday. First serve is set for 2:30pm Pacific time. A win in the opening round will bring a second round matchup with host school Michigan or American on Friday afternoon.
