Last Time Out
The Ducks suffered a 5-0 setback to then-No. 16 Washington in their finale at the Pac-12 South Invite in Los Angeles. Oregon (2-7) pushed UW to three sets at No. 2 and 4 pairs but fell just short of recording a point, losing 15-12 in the third on both courts.
Leading the Way
Through nine matches, the UO pair of Ella Tyus and Bea Wetton have a team-high five wins playing in the No. 2 spot in the lineup. The duo picked up a dual point against #17 Arizona last weekend, beating Abby Russell and Hope Shannon in three sets. Individually, the victory was the 30th of Wetton’s career.
Scouting the Field
The Ducks’ opponents this weekend enter the Queens Cup with 24-10 combined record, not including Texas which open its inaugural season Friday. Washington (4-4) features the pair of Chloe Loreen and Natalie Robinson that is 7-1 in the Huskies’ No. 1 spot. Nebraska and host Hawaii both have seven wins and Cal is 6-2 overall with its only losses coming to top-10 teams LMU and USC.
