Sept. 25, 2004

EUGENE, Ore. - Senior Allison Lawrence picked up her 1000th career kill as Oregon State's volleyball team recorded a 3-1 Civil War victory against rival University of Oregon on Friday night in Eugene. The Beavers won the Pacific-10 Conference opener for both squads by a final margin of 31-29, 30-25, 26-30, 30-21.

OSU improves to 7-3 on the season and 1-0 in the Pac-10, while UO falls to 8-3 and 0-1 in conference action.

'This was an all-around great team effort by everybody,' said Oregon State head coach Nancy Somera.

Lawrence was one of four Beavers to reach double figures in kills, leading the team with 17 on the night to raise her career total to 1,013 - the 10th highest in school history. She also added 14 digs for her eighth double-double on the year.

Abby Windell added 14 kills and hit a team-high .407, while Karah Rhoades and Katelyn Healy chipped in 13 kills apiece.

Setter Desma Stovall led the way with 54 assists and a game-high 20 digs.

'Desma really came through and got a lot of hitters going,' said Somera. 'She had a great all-around effort.'

OSU had four players reach double figures in digs and finished the match 76-60 advantage. The Beavers also tallied 12 service aces, including five by Windell.

'When we're serving, defending, and passing the ball well, we usually come out on the positive end,' said Somera.

Sarah Mason led the Ducks with 19 kills.

Oregon State returns to action on Friday at Washington State University. First serve is set for 7 p.m.
