Jackson, Oliveira win as SOU drops 2 | Sports

EUGENE — The results of the Southern Oregon University beach volleyball team’s duel against Corban and Bushnell mirrored the results of a week ago when the top-ranked Warriors won 5-0 and the Beacons 4-1 on Saturday at Churchill Sand volleyball courts.

Once again, pair No. 2 Taylor Jackson and Karina Oliveira were responsible for SOU’s win. They defeated Bushnell’s Roslyn McLellan and Madi Trueblood 21-12 and 21-16, improving to 5-4 that season.

As a team, the Raiders went 3-7. Corban stands at 14-2 and Bushnell at 6-8.

“Our game is progressing but we are excellent partners and teammates and we enjoy playing,” said SOU coach Paul Elliott.

The Raiders play Northwest, Wash., and Corban next Saturday in Salem, their final bouts before the NAIA West group qualifiers April 6-8 in Chula Vista, Calif.
