Apr 21, 2022

EUGENE, Ore. – On an afternoon dedicated to celebrating its seniors, the Oregon beach volleyball team swept its way past Portland Thursday at Amazon Park. The Ducks improve to 13-16 this year and extend the program's winning streak over UP to 12 in a row.
 
In addition to being Senior Day, Thursday's match marked Oregon's regular-season finale. The team will travel to Tucson, Ariz., next week for the Pac-12 Championship (April 27-29).
 
Prior to the match against Portland, the Ducks honored their seniors—Ally Haden, Brooke Nuneviller, Carly Wallace, Savannah Siegrist, Anastasia Lima, Vivian Donovan and Madelyn LaFollette—and also recognized Portland seniors Kendall Nolan and Sarah Strong.
 
Ashley Schroeder and Ella Tyus continued their recent hot streak with a 21-10, 21-13 victory, their sixth in a row, at No. 4 pairs for the first point of the match. The Ducks extended their lead with a 23-21, 21-15 victory in the No. 2 spot in the lineup. It was the pair's ninth win together this season.
 
In the second wave of matches, Nuneviller and Reagan Hope clinched the dual with a 21-11, 21-14 result on court one, good for their 15th win of the season. The all-senior pair of Haden and Siegrist pushed the lead to 4-0 with a straight-set win of their own—21-18, 21-11—at the No. 5 spot. The win is their 14th of the year, just behind Hope and Nuneviller for the team lead.
 
Oregon secured the 5-0 final with a straight-set win by Batia Rotshtein and Bea Wetton on court three. It was their first match together which turned into a 21-13, 21-13 triumph. In exhibition play, Zoe Almanza and Chloe Brown picked up another win for the Ducks.
