Welcome, Coach Dillard
Jason Dillard was named head coach of Oregon Beach Volleyball in September 2021. He spent 18 years as the director and head coach of the Goldenwest Volleyball Club (GWVBC), a program that produced nearly 250 college players including 93 at the Division I level. Dillard also spent 12 seasons (2006-17) at Fullerton College with previous Division I experience at UC Riverside (2004-05).
Rewind: The 2021 Season
The Ducks finished the 2021 campaign with an 8-11 record, setting a program record for single-season wins. Oregon also posted a match win at the Pac-12 Championships for just the second time in program history, a 3-2 victory over Utah in the first round of the conference tournament.
Oregon returns 12 from last year's roster including Savannah Siegrist who led the team with nine wins individually. The list of returners also features Ashley Schroeder and Bea Wetton who each tallied eight victories in 2021.
The 2022 UO Beach Volleyball roster features three Ducks—Reagan Hope, Daley McClellan and Brooke Nuneviller—that are also members of the indoor team. For a second-consecutive season, Nuneviller was named to the AVCA All-America Second Team after averaging 3.96 kills per set coupled with 17 double-doubles. Alex Laita and Bea Wetton began their UO careers as members of the indoor team in 2019.
