WHAT’S ON TAP
EUGENE – Looking ahead to their second home opener at Matthew Knight Arena, the No. 13 Duck volleyball team (6-0) faces a pair of talented West Coast foes the next six days, then wraps its non-conference slate next Wednesday at Portland State.

Both visiting teams own 4-2 records in 2012, and also sported top-55 RPI national ratings and impressive records last year - UC Santa Barbara (#53, 19-12) and St. Mary's (#55, 17-12).

Last weekend in the Baymont Invitational Athens, Ohio, the Ducks swept No. 10 Kentucky and Western Carolina and beat host Ohio, 3-1, to win their 14th regular season tournament title under head coach Jim Moore.

The win over the Wildcats was UO’s 18th win over a top-10 team in his eight-year tenure, and UO sports a 79-4 regular-season record in that stretch. Its .500 hitting mark vs. UK was its best in that span vs. top-25 teams, and bettered its .452 total in a sweep of then-No. 4 USC in 2008.


UPCOMING HOME PROMOTIONS
- UC Santa Barbara (Wed., 9/5, 7 p.m.) – Bi-Mart $3 Day
(Show your card at the door). Fans that show an Arkansas State football ticket stub will get a $1 G.A. ticket.

AROUND THE CORNER
In two weeks, UO opens the Pac-12 season at home at Matthew Knight Arena vs. Oregon State, Wednesday, September 19 at 7 p.m. – the two schools’ first Civil War match-up of 2012-13.


RECENT DUCK HEROES
Winning her second straight tourney MVP honor, redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma led UO in the Baymont Invitational in kills (5.00 p/s) and aces (6, 0.75 p/s), and ranked second in hitting (.452) and third in digs (20, 2.50 p/s).

Against Ohio, the returning All-American’s 25.5 points stood as a team season high, and her 23 kills tied her team season high (and best in a non-five-set match). Her .500 hitting mark vs. No. 10 Kentucky is UO’s second-best of the season, and trails only senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer’s total in the same match (.619, 14 kills).

Fischer was also an all-tourney pick after she logged her second double-double of the season (and 30th career-wise) vs. Ohio (.395, 20K, 11D).

Junior middle blocker Ariana Williams led the team in hitting (.524) for the tourney, and averaged 2.89 kills per set. She topped .400 in all three matches with her totals vs. WCU (.700, 7K), UK (.600, 7K) and Ohio (12K, .409).

All-Pac-12 junior setter Lauren Plum upped her season high in aces (64) with her four-set career best, and directed the team to a .362 hitting mark over the weekend.

On defense, freshman middle blocker Canace Finley set a team season high in blocks in the sweep of Kentucky (5). Fellow frosh Clelia DeFelice led the team in the other two tilts vs. WCU (3) and Ohio (2).


NON-CONFERENCE NOTORIETY   
Overall in his tenure in Eugene, Moore has led UO to a 79-4 non-conference regular season mark, and his .952 non-conference winning percentage is easily the best of any Duck volleyball coach.

Including 2012, Oregon has staked 6-0 starts in four seasons under Moore, with others coming in 2005, ’06 and ‘09.


GET YOUR TICKETS
Looking ahead to one of the most exciting home slates ever, the Ducks’ 12-match home schedule will feature last year’s national champion (UCLA), two more NCAA second-round qualifiers (Stanford, Washington), and two other postseason first-round advancers (Arizona, California).

2012 DUCK TEAM PREVIEW
Among the team's six returning starters and nine letterwinners, the Ducks welcome back a pair of All-Pac-12 picks in All-American and senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma and junior setter Lauren Plum.

UO also returns a host of other starters in All-Pac-12 Freshman Team choice and outside hitter Liz Brenner, All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention and junior middle blocker Ariana Williams, senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer, A2 National Team member and senior libero Haley Jacob and senior defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki.

Oregon’s other returnees include sophomore setter Shellsy Ashen and defensive specialist Natalie Bookout Gonzalez who played 28 and 23 matches of the team’s 31 matches last fall.

The Ducks also welcome one of their top newcomer classes ever – ranked No. 14 nationally by PrepVolleyball.com. The five-person freshman group is composed of Italian product and middle blocker Clelia DeFelice, prep All-America outside hitter Martenne Bettendorf, Senior Ace middle blocker Canace Finley, Senior Ace 150 outside hitter Madison Magee and All-CIF libero Tatum Norton.

UO also added one transfer in senior outside hitter Bethany (Wray) Bair - a two-time All-Big Sky honorable mention for Weber State in 2010 and '11.

Under the direction of eighth-year head coach Jim Moore, Oregon comes off a 21-10 campaign in 2011. Oregon was rewarded with its fifth NCAA tournament trip the past six years, its sixth straight +19-win season, and its third, upper division league finish in his tenure.


ALL-TIME SERIES

ON THE PAC-12 CHARTS
In the second Pac-12 stat rankings of 2012, Oregon led the nation’s top conference in hitting (.344) after it improved .020 last week. The Ducks also stand second in assists (second, 14.43 p/s) and kills (15.62 p/s) and third in aces (1.57 p/s).

On the individual front, four Ducks stood top 10 in league categories – junior setter Lauren Plum (assists, first, 12.53 p/s), junior middle blocker Ariana Williams (second, .430), redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma (aces, second, 0.53; points, second, 5.24 p/s; kills, third, 4.59 p/s; hitting, fourth, .405) and senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer (hitting, eighth, .397).

Lauren Plum leads the Pac-12 with its top two assist totals of the season at Ohio (64) and at No. 24 Ohio State (61). Among other top league performances, notable Duck sightings came from Fischer (hitting, third, .619) and Bergsma (hitting, seventh-tie, .500) vs. No. 10 Kentucky; and Bergsma vs. Ohio (kills, sixth-tie, 23; points, sixth, 25.5) and at No. 24 Ohio State (kills, sixth-tie, 23; points, eighth, 24.5).

Among top league team efforts, UO’s hitting marks vs. Kentucky (.500), Toledo (.364) and Western Carolina (.360) stood second, eighth and 10th; and several other totals stop top 10 at Ohio (assists, second, 67; kills, third, 70), and at No. 24 Ohio State (assists, fourth, 64;kills, fifth, 66).


DUCK HONOR ROLL
Last fall, redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma was rewarded with Oregon’s seventh all-time All-America honor with her nod on the 14-person AVCA All-America Third Team, while junior setter Lauren Plum received her first All-America Honorable Mention nod.

Bergsma became the fifth Duck ever to stake honors in program history, with three others coming in the seven-year tenure of Oregon head coach Jim Moore - Neticia Enesi (3rd-2009; 2nd-‘10; Sonja Newcombe (2nd-2009) and Gorana Maricic (2nd-2008, 2nd-‘07). Oregon’s only other recipient, Sue Harbour, was a first-team pick in 1984.

Bergsma was also an All-Region honoree on the 14-person team, and Plum was an honorable mention for the squad composed of players from the Pac-12, Big Sky and West Coast Conferences.

Bergsma and Plum were also tabbed to the All-Pac-12 First Team, junior middle blocker Ariana Williams was an honorable mention, and outside hitter Liz Brenner was tabbed to the All-Pac-12 Freshman Team.

Bergsma’s and Plum’s honors were the eighth and ninth in head coach Jim Moore’s eight-year tenure and raised Oregon’s overall tally to 18 (while Plum was UO’s first-ever setter honoree). Likewise, Brenner was Moore’s sixth All-Pac-12 Freshman Team honoree and 13th in school history since the origin of the conference in 1986.

After the season, junior libero Haley Jacob was tabbed to the USA Volleyball A2 National Team for her play in the national team tryouts in January in Colorado Springs. She followed the lead of Bergsma and Plum who were chosen to the 2011 squad, and the latter player was a 2011 U.S. Junior National Team player and started six of the team's eight matches in the FIVB World Junior Championships.

Among other noteworthy honors, Bergsma won the Miss Oregon title in the Miss America USA pageant in November and won the Miss Photogenic Award in the event held last spring.


YOUTH REVOLT
The Oregon roster is one of head coach Jim Moore’s most balanced in recent memory with five seniors (Bethany Bair, Alaina Bergsma, Katherine Fischer, Haley Jacob, Kellie Kawasaki), two juniors (Lauren Plum, Ariana Williams), three sophomores (Shellsy Ashen, Natalie Bookout Gonzalez, Liz Brenner) and five freshmen (Martenne Bettendorf, Clelia DeFelice, Canace Finley, Maddie Magee, Tatum Norton).


ON THE CHARTS
A Duck trio of upperclassmen each moved up a spot on various career lists last weekend in Ohio - junior setter Lauren Plum (assists, third, 2,814), senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma (points, seventh, 1,026) and senior libero Haley Jacob (digs, seventh, 1116).

IN THE POLLS
With its four-position jump in the first AVCA national poll of the regular season, No. 13 Oregon logged the second-biggest improvement in the Pac-12 this week.

The Ducks were one of five Pac-12 schools spotted Monday in the top 13 overall with returning national champion and No. 3 UCLA, No. 5 USC, No. 7 Washington and No. 8 Stanford.

Among those rankings, Washington and Stanford improved five and one positions, and UCLA and USC held steady.

Among other Duck foes, No. 19 Kentucky fell nine spots; California dropped one position out of the top 25 and received votes with Ohio State; and St. Mary’s picked up votes in the preseason and first edition.

For comparison’s sake, last week’s Pac-12 rankings follow: No. 3 UCLA, No. 5 USC, No. 9 Stanford, No. 12 Washington, No. 17 Oregon, No. 25 California.

Overall during head coach Jim Moore’s eight-year tenure, Oregon has now been ranked top 25 for 77 editions (2012-3; 2011-14; ’10-13; ’09-16; ’08-16; ’07-13; ’06-2), including 41 in the top 15, and all 14 of the team’s ever top-10 honors.

The complete poll follows at the bottom of this article, and is also available at the AVCA website at the http://www.avca.org/divisions/division-one-women/polls/ URL address.

Earlier this season, Oregon’s No. 20 preseason pick in the AVCA Coaches Poll was its fourth top-20 preseason pick the last five years – an accomplishment the program had notched only twice before current head coach Jim Moore’s arrival (1985 - 15th / 1990 - 20th).

The eighth-year mentor and his squad also picked up a No. 11 preseason nod in 2008, and No. 14 and No. 20 selections in 2009 and ’10, respectively.

The only missing year in that span – 2011 – saw Oregon upset then-four-time defending national champion Penn State two weeks later, and end its NCAA-record 94-match home win streak.

Among other related poll notes, UO was picked a best-ever fourth in the Pac-12 Coaches Preseason Poll behind UCLA (first), Stanford (second) and USC (third), and ahead of Washington (fifth), California (sixth) and Arizona (seventh).

A complete listing of the Ducks' string of top-25 rankings under Moore follows: *2012: Preseason – 20th; 8/27 – 17th; 9/4 -13th;  2011 (13 weeks): 8/29 – 16th; 9/5 – 16th; 9/12 – 16th; 9/19 – 15th; 9/26 – 15th; 10/3 – 15th; 10/10 – 16th; 10/17 – 18th; 10/24 – 16th; 10/31 – 20th; 11/7 – 20th; 11/14 - 15th; 11/21 – 13th; 12/20 – 24th. *2010 (13): Preseason – 20th, 8/30 – 18th; 9/6 – 19th; 9/13 – 16th; 9/20 – 15th; 9/27 – 11th; 10/4 – 13th; 10/11 – 17th; 10/18 – 16th; 10/25 – 18th; 11/1 – 20th; 11/15 – 23rd; 11/22 – 24th.  *2009 (16): Preseason - 14th, 8/31 - 14th, 9/7 - 12th, 9/14 - 14th; 9/21 - 7th; 9/28 – 7th; 10/5 – 11th; 10/12 - 15th; 10/19 – 12th; 10/26 – 15th; 11/2 – 14th; 11/9 – 16th; 11/16 – 18th; 11/23 – 18th; 11/30 – 17th; 12/22 – 18th.  *2008 (16): Preseason - 11th; 9/2 - 13th; 9/9 - 12th; 9/17 - 12th; 9/24 - 11th; 9/30 - 11th; 10/6 - 7th; 10/13 - 6th; 10/20 - 7th; 10/27 - 7th; 11/3 - 8th; 11/10 - 8th; 11/17 - 8th; 11/24 - 8th; 12/1 - 7th; 12/23 - 9th. *2007 (13): 9/18 24th; 9/25 21st; 10/1 – 19th; 10/8 – 19th; 10/15 – 19th; 10/22 – 19th; 10/29 - 19th; 11/5 – 20th; 11/12 - 14th; 11/19 - 13th; 11/26 - 13th; 12/3 - ninth; 12/10 - ninth. *2006 (2): 10/30 24th; 11/6 24th.


BALANCE IS BETTER
In 2011, Oregon flexed its balance in all phases of the game, especially in the hitting and blocking categories. The Ducks featured three or more players with +.300 attack marks and/or +10 kills in 10 and 12 matches, respectively, and 15 matches with +10 digs.

2011 SEASON RECAP
Last season, UO staked one of its greatest seasons and celebrated its first-ever wins against top-ranked foes.

Oregon opened the campaign with a 3-1 win at the then-four-time defending Penn State in the AVCA Showcase and ended its NCAA record 94-match home winning streak. In November, Oregon’s comeback from an 0-2 deficit at home to UCLA was barely a month before the Bruins won the NCAA title.

The following week in November, Oregon beat the then-returning league champions – No. 3 California and No. 5 Stanford – by 3-1 and 3-2 counts. The Stanford win was its second-ever in Palo Alto, and first in Berkeley  since ’06. It had been more than 20 years since UO had beaten both teams on the road in 1986 and ’89, and once in Eugene under Moore in ’09.

Oregon’s fifth upset of a top-10 team in 2011 was a 3-0 October sweep of then-No. 7 Washington – its first blanking of the Huskies since 1995.

Other wins vs. NCAA advancers came via sweeps against Arizona (twice), and American, Delaware and Liberty in its September East Coast trip.

In December, UO wrapped the season in the NCAA tournament first with a hard-fought five-set loss to Mountain West champion Colorado State in Honolulu.

Overall, UO played 12 teams that were selected for the 64-team NCAA tournament, and owned a 10-8 record en route to a national RPI rating of #30.

Six other league teams stood top 50 in the final RPI standings - USC (eighth), UCLA (15th), Stanford (18th), California (29th), Washington (35th) and Arizona (49th). Other Pac-12 teams’ ratings follow: Oregon State (103rd), Utah (138th), Arizona State (141st), Washington State (156th) and Colorado (183rd).

The entire listing is available at this website ( http://web1.ncaa.org/app_data/weeklyrpi/2011WVBrpi1.html ), and 2012’s rankings will begin in October.


2011 NCAA TOURNEY / PAC-12 NOTES
The Ducks were one of seven conference teams selected for the 2011 NCAA tournament – the sixth straight year the league has advanced six or more teams.

With its 3-2 win over #3 seed Illinois in San Antonio, No. 9 seed/No. 4-ranked UCLA (30-6, 17-5 (2nd)) won its fourth national title, and first since 1991.

Fellow semifinalist and Pac-12 champion USC (29-5, 20-2 (1st)) received the league’s highest NCAA tourney seeding – seventh – after it ranked first nationally the last three weeks and stood top five nationally since the start of October.

A third league team received a top-16 seeding - #11 Stanford (22-8, 15-7 (4th-t)) – and the Cardinal advanced to the round of 16 with Washington (24-8, 15-7 (4th-t)), while Arizona (19-13, 11-11 (7th) and California (26-7, 16-6 (3rd)) lost in the first round.

Overall, Texas received the tourney’s #1 seed although its highest AVCA national ranking of the year – fifth – came the final two weeks of the regular season. The Bruins beat the Longhorns, 3-1 in the regional final, while the tourney’s #2 seed - Nebraska - lost in the second round at home to unseeded Kansas State, 3-2.

Oregon’s sixth-place Pac-12 finish was its third upper-division league effort under Moore after fourth- and fifth-place efforts in 2008 and '07. Other Moore-led squads took sixth in the 10-team Pac-10 standings in '06 and seventh in '10 against the nation's top volleyball league. Before Moore’s arrival, UO stood in the top half of the Pac-10/12 that started in 1986 with its fourth-place finishes in 1986, ’87 and ’89.


POSTSEASON SUCCESS
Oregon has made NCAA Tournament trips in five of the last six years under Jim Moore, including its first-ever pair of NCAA Regional trips in 2007 and ‘08.

UO is 5-5 in postseason play under Moore, compared to a 1-5 mark in its four other NCAA appearances since the first tourney in 1981 (1984, ’86, ’87, ’89) that expanded to 64 teams in ‘98.

A list of NCAA appearances in his tenure follows:

2011 Colorado State - L, 2-3 (26-24, 21-25, 21-25, 25-15, 10-15), 1st Round at Honolulu, Hawai'i
2009 Clemson - W 3-0 (25-17, 25-21, 25-20), 1st Round at Lexington, Kent.
2009 Kentucky - L, 0-3 (20-25, 22-25, 17-25), 2nd Round at Lexington, Kent.
2008 Delaware - W, 3-0 (25-16, 25-18, 25-15), 1st Round at Washington, D.C.
2008 North Carolina - W, 3-1 (25-20, 24-26, 25-19, 25-19), 2nd Round at Washington D.C.
2008 Iowa State - L, 2-3 (25-17, 25-11, 22-25, 22-25, 8-15), Regional at Austin, Texas
2007 Missouri State - W, 3-0 (31-29, 30-20, 31-29), 1st Round at Manhattan, Kan.
2007 Kansas State - W, 3-2 (24-30, 20-30, 30-27, 36-34, 15-11), 2nd Round at Manhattan, Kan.
2007 UCLA - L, 1-3 (23-30, 19-30, 30-28, 24-30), Regional at Stanford, Calif.
2006 Hawai’i - L, 0-3 (17-30, 17-30, 18-30), 1st Round at Long Beach State


MOORE COACHING NOTES
Oregon’s 3-1 season-opening victory at then-No. 1 Penn State moved head coach Jim Moore to third all-time for UO in career wins past Gerry Gregory (fourth, 115-143, 1986-94)), and his current UO mark (142-82, 2005-) trails only Karla Rice (196-67, 1967-77) and Chris Voelz (186-168, 1978-85).

That aforementioned win over the Nittany Lions and November’s 0-2 comeback victory over then-No. 1 UCLA marked UO’s first and second wins in 20 all-time tilts against top-ranked teams. Oregon’s August victory in State College, Pa., also ended the longest-ever home win streak in the sport for the four-time defending national champions (94 matches). Before Moore’s arrival, Oregon’s previous highest-ranked victim were three No. 7 teams three decades before – Stanford (1986), Hawai’i (‘84) and Texas (‘82).

In 2011, UO logged 10 wins or more in its first 14 matches under Moore for the seventh straight year, and its victory totals in that span follow: 2011 (12), ‘10 (14), ’09 (12), ’08 (11), ’07 (12), ’06 (11) and ’05 (10). In contrast, Oregon had pulled the feat only three times before since the start of the NCAA volleyball era in 1981 under head coach Gerry Gregory in 1991 (10), ’90 (10) and ’89 (11).

With its 10 straight wins in 2011, Oregon has won nine or more straight matches each of the last six years and their longest streaks each year follow - 2010 (14), '09 (10), '08 (9), '07 (10) and '06 (10).

UO’s prowess at home, especially in the non-conference slate, is well documented. The Ducks are 33-0 at home in non-conference action under Moore, thanks to its perfect marks in 2005 (5-0), ‘06 (4-0), ‘07 (6-0), ‘08 (6-0), ‘09 (5-0), ‘10 (4-0) and ’11 (3-0).

Including conference play the last seven seasons, UO has staked an impressive 68-31 home record, and its overall year-by-year home marks under Moore (and conference) follow: 2011 10-4 (7-4); 2010 8-5 (4-5); 2009: 11-3 (6-3); 2008 13-2 (7-2); 2007 11-4 (5-4); 2006 8-5 (4-5); and 2005 7-8 (1-8).

With its 21 wins in 2011, UO has claimed +17 wins for six straight years for the first time in the modern volleyball era in 1981. All six have come under Moore (21-’11; 20-’09; 25-’08; 22-’07; 17-’06), and no other Oregon mentor has ever won +20 matches three straight seasons or +19 wins in five straight years in that same span.

The dean of current Oregon head coaches, Moore guided UO to its first ever pair of NCAA Regional round of 16 trips in school history in 2007 and ’08, and sports a 5-5 record in his five Duck NCAA trips (compared with a 1-5 mark in its five prior NCAA appearances).

One of only two Duck mentors to beat every conference foe, he led the team to three straight of .500 or better conference marks (9-9 ’09; 11-7 ’08; 9-9 ’07) for the first time since 1986-88, and four straight top-six finishes for the first time in school history (fourth in ’08, fifth (tie) in ’07 and sixth (tie) in ’06).

In the national rankings, UO has ranked top 25 in 77 polls in his tenure, thanks to a 59 straight editions from 2007-10 - more than double its previous best (28, 1986-88) - and two weeks late in 2006. That stretch included an all-time high of No. 6 in ’08 among its seven weeks in the top 10.

Oregon has beaten 18, top-10 ranked teams under Moore (compared with six in the 23 previous years in the modern volleyball era (1982-2004)). Considering matches vs. top-five teams since '82, UO has staked all eight of its victories since 2006, and 25 of its 45 all-time wins vs. top-25 teams (with 18 of those Moore-directed latter wins considered upsets based on that week’s national rankings).

PLUM & BERGSMA GO NATIONAL
In 2011, Oregon picked up AVCA National Player of the Week honors for the fifth straight season after junior setter Lauren Plum directed UO to a mid-October sweep of then-No. 7 Washington and 3-2 comeback win over Washington State.

The sweep of the Huskies was UO’s first since 1995 and its second of four wins the last 32 matches in the series.  The night before, she helped UO win its 12th straight match in the series vs. the Cougars (and the last four with her at setter).

Against No. 7 Washington, her 52 assists in three sets was a Pac-12 season high, and only two off her then- season high in four sets vs. WSU (54).

The Huskies came into the match leading the nation in blocks, and also ranked second in the league in opponent hitting percentage (.127). UO and Plum answered the challenge by staking the highest hitting mark by a UW foe this year (.283) – a full .040 higher than its previous opponent season best (UCLA, .243).

Her ability to evenly distribute the ball proved the difference and gave the balanced Duck offense four hitters with +10 kills for the fifth time this year, but first in three sets.

She also added 12 digs for her second double-double of the weekend and 15th career-wise. Her eighth double-doubles overall this year is tops among underclassmen and fourth-most in the league.

She entered the Fox/Root Sports-TV match vs. WSU midway through the first set, and still ended with 45 assists, and logged half of the team’s four aces. She also posted a double-double with her 10 digs, and ranked second on the squad with her blocks season high (4) that doubled her previous 2011 best.

Thanks to her weekend 12.12 assists/per set average, she improved to fifth nationally and first in the Pac-12 (11.80 per set), and a comparison of her other weekend vs. previous season averages follows: digs (2.75/2.44), aces (0.25/0.21), blocks (0.50/0.27) and points (1.06/0.81).

Last year, redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma picked up similar AVCA national honors after UO swept then-returning NCAA qualifier Washington State and ended the then-No. 7 Washington’s 36-set season win streak in 3-1 decision in Eugene.

Against UW, she connected on match highs in kills (21), points (23) and hitting (.559); her kill tally was a team season high; and her hitting mark (.559) was third-best for UO in ‘10 and tops among efforts of 15 kills or more. The night before vs. the Cougars, she again led the team in kills (12) – her first honor of the season – and hit .417.

In 2009, All-American Sonja Newcombe picked up similar honors after the team’s wins against then-No. 5 Stanford and then-No. 14 California in Eugene, and in ’08 after home victories vs. then-No. 4 USC and then-No. 5 UCLA. In ’07, All-American Gorana Maricic was likewise tabbed after wins vs. then-No. 6 USC and then-No. 9 UCLA in Eugene.


BRAINS & BRAWN
In 2012, senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer repeated as a Capital One Academic All-America First Team choice after she picked up Third-Team honors in 2011.

The accounting major from Los Altos, Calif., sported a 4.02 cumulative GPA before last fall – the highest among the three teams nationally – and became the second Duck to ever repeat honors with four-time recipient Sue Harbor (First Team - 1984, '85); Second Team – 1982, ‘83).

Two other Ducks have received third-team honors once before - Kristen Bitter (2006) and Casey Crisler (1997).

Fischer also received her second academic all-district honor, and was one of five Ducks honored to Pacific-12 Conference All-Academic Teams.

Fischer repeated on the conference academic first team, and other honorees included second-team honorees and outside hitters Lauren Gross and Alaina Bergsma, and honorable mentions and defensive specialist Kellie Kawasaki and setter Lauren Plum.

UO has now racked up 30 conference all-academic honors in seven years under head coach Jim Moore. In prior years, UO received at least three honors in 2010 (6), ‘08 (4), ‘07 (4), '06 (4) and '05 (5), to go along with two in ’09.

In the summer, the team picked up its second AVCA Team Academic Award after it maintained a +3.30 team GPA for the 2011-12 academic year. UO received similar honors twice before under Moore in 2005-06 and 2009-10, and also the season prior to his arrival (2004-05).


HOME COURT MAGIC
Last October, the Ducks welcomed a home record volleyball crowd of 6,210 to a Matthew Knight Arena match vs. returning league co-champion and No. 4 California. A month later it added its sixth-best mark (3,065) in its regular season finale vs. Oregon State.

Overall in his seventh season at the helm, head coach Jim Moore and the Ducks have now played in front of 14 of the 20 largest home volleyball crowds at Matthew Knight Arena and Ma Arthur Court.

Oregon’s burgeoning fan support has helped the program to a 33-0 non-conference home record under Moore, thanks to perfect marks in 2005 (5-0), ’06 (4-0), ‘07 (6-0), ‘08 (6-0), ’09 (5-0,)’10 (4-0) and ‘11 (3-0).

A complete list of the top-20 ranked crowds during the Moore era follows:
- 6,210 (#1, vs. California, 10/7/11)
- 3,817 (#2, vs. Washington, 11/16/08)
- 3,564 (#4, vs. Washington 9/25/09)
- 3,169 (#5, vs. Washington State, 11/14/08)
- 3,065 (#6, vs. Oregon State, 11/25/11)
- 2,777 (#7, vs. Oregon State, 11/16/07)
- 2,672 (#8, vs. Washington, 11/3/06)
- 2,518 (#10, vs. OSU, 10/27/09)
- 2,375 (#12, vs. Washington, 9/21/07)
- 2,346 (#13, vs. Oregon State, 10/15/10)
- 2,260 (#14, vs. Oregon State, 9/29/06)
- 2,159 (#15, vs. Oregon State, 10/12/08)
- 1,935 (#18, vs. USC, 11/20/10)
- 1,842 (#20, vs. California, 11/16/06)

Season-wise, UO's overall average in 2010 (1,295) and 2009 (1,433) both ranked 27th among the 369 Division 1 teams, while its nine-match conference average in 2008 (2,393) was almost a 1,000 better than its 2007 average (1,412).


JIM MOORE - HEAD COACH PROFILE
Oregon's mercurial rise into the national elite has been charted by Jim Moore, the 2007 Collegiate Volleyball Update Coach of the Year and 2006 Pac-12 Conference Coach of the Year.

In 2010, he guided arguably his youngest team ever to a season-high 11th place national ranking and a 19-11 record. Oregon ran its AVCA ranking streak to 59 straight weeks, thanks to a school-record 14-match win streak to open the season en route to its fifth straight season with +17 wins (20-’09; 25-’08; 22-’07; 17-’06) for the first time since 1983-87.

The youthful Duck squad sported only one upperclassmen on its roster at season’s end, senior Heather Meyers who graduated ranked second all-time in the Pac-10 in career service aces (173). The All-Pac-10 First Team outside hitter also led the Pac-10 (0.56 p/s) and ranked sixth in the league in points (4.57 p/s) with the fourth- and sixth-best marks all-time for UO, and graduated top-10 ranked in nearly every school career category. All-Pac-10 Freshman team setter Lauren Plum ranked 12th nationally in assists (11.75) – tops among freshmen - and was later picked to the A2 National Team with All-Pac-10 honorable mention and outside hitter Alaina Bergsma. Sophomore outside hitter Katherine Fischer logged the highest double-double totals (14) among non-seniors, and topped the league in most aces in a match (6) with Meyers who recorded the feat three times.

Team-wise in ‘10, UO also ranked top 30 nationally in aces (24th, 1.61 p/s), assists (25th, 13.23 p/s), kills (29th, 14.12) and hitting (30th, .256).

In 2009, UO again spent the entire season ranked top 20 and climbed as high seventh nationally – its second highest polling ever. At season’s end, UO notched its third straight 20-win season (20-10) for the first time since 1978-80, a 14th-place NCAA tourney seeding and 17th-place final national ranking.

Oregon’s 9-9 Pac-10 mark was its third straight of .500 or better (9-9 ’09; 11-7 ’08; 9-9 ’07) for the first time since 1986-88, and its sixth-place finish marked its fourth straight top-six finish (fourth in ’08, fifth (tie) in ’07 and sixth (tie) in ’06).

UO claimed five wins over top-20 teams, including a pair of 0-2 comebacks vs. then-No. 7 UCLA, and at then-No. 4 Washington, and 3-2 wins over No. 5 Stanford and No. 9 Minnesota (3-2) and its first blanking of No. 14 California since ‘90. Oregon’s first victories over the Cardinal and Huskies since 1989 and 2000, respectively, also meant that Moore is the second mentor ever to lead UO to wins over all nine Pac-10 rivals in his career.

The Ducks were rewarded with a No. 14 NCAA Tournament seed – its third straight top-16 seed after it posted four wins against top-10 teams, including a pair of 0-2 November comebacks that resulted in 3-2 upsets of then-No. 7 UCLA and at then-No. 4 Washington.

In October, Oregon’s 3-2 win over then-No. 5 Stanford and 3-0 blanking of then-No. 14 Cal marked its first weekend sweep of the Bay Area rivals since ‘89, and the Stanford and Washington victories positioned Moore as the second Duck mentor to defeat every Pac-10 opponent.

Early in the season, UO climbed as high as No. 7 in the AVCA national poll its 42nd straight top-20 ranking (and among 14, top-10 appearances). That second-highest-ever ranking – just shy of its sixth-place ranking in ‘08 – came after a victory vs. then-No. 9 Minnesota that extended its third, school record start (10-0) the last four years. McArthur Court roared in approval countless times as UO went 11-2 at home, while its third-biggest-ever attendance of 3,564 in the Pac-10 opener marked another of the 10 crowds in Moore’s short tenure that rank among the 16 biggest in school history.

Fueling Oregon’s success again in ‘09 was the record-setting senior trio from his first Duck recruiting class – the All-America pair of outside hitter Sonja Newcombe (1,852 points) and middle blocker Neticia Enesi (389 block assists) and setter Nevena Djordjevic (4,400). Enesi and Newcombe were repeat All-Pac-10 picks and the latter player picked up her second AVCA National Player of the Week and third and fourth Pac-10 Player of the Week nods. Djordjevic, a All-Pac-10 honorable mention choice, ended the regular season ranked second nationally in assists (12.38), and Newcombe stood 20th in points (4.89) and kills (4.35) as did Enesi ranked 16th in hitting (0.374).

UO enjoyed another record-breaking campaign in 2008 under the Long Beach, Calif., native when it racked up its most overall wins (25) since 1984, scored its second straight (and ever) trip to the third round of the 64-team NCAA tournament, and its best Pac-10 finish and record (fourth, 11-7) since '87. During the regular season, Oregon enjoyed a school record 15-match home winning streak and its highest ever ranking (No. 6) among a string of top-15 rankings all season long that included a season-ending ninth-place position. Other highlights included a new school record crowd (3,817) and #3-biggest mark vs. Washington State (3,169), and its first pair of upsets vs. top-five ranked rivals (No. 4 USC (3-0) and No. 5 UCLA (3-1)).

In return for the team’s success in 2008, UO celebrated its first pair of same season All-Americans (Neticia Enesi, Gorana Maricic), first All-Pac-10 and All-Region trio (Enesi, Maricic, Newcombe); its second National Player of the Week honoree (Newcombe) after Maricic claimed similar honors in 2007; and new school and individual hitting records (.289 / .389 by Neticia Enesi).

2007 proved another storybook season when Oregon sprinted out to a 10-0 start, then advanced to the 64-team NCA Tournament third round for the first time after wins over Missouri State (3-0) and 11th-seeded Kansas State (3-2). The latter of those wins was a memorable one for Moore when UO battled back from a 2-0 deficit to upset No. 11 seed Kansas State on its home floor -  a program he had also resurrected a decade prior. The Ducks flashed similar instincts a month before at home when it beat its first pair of top-10 ranked foes (No. 6 USC and No. 9 UCLA) en route to a 9-9 league record and fifth-place finish (its best since 1989), while its 22-11 record featured its most overall wins since 1986.

On the individual front in ‘07, outside hitter Gorana Maricic was tabbed UO’s second-ever All-American and a first-team Pac-10 and All-Region pick; Heather Meyers, Sonja Newcombe and Katie Swoboda were Pac-10 honorable mention choices; and Meyers was a Pac-10 All-Freshmen Team selection.

In his 24th year as a collegiate head coach, Moore began UO's transformation in 2005 by leading the Ducks to their then-highest win total (12) and winning percentage (.400) in 14 seasons. The next year in '06, he led the Ducks to their then-best overall (17-12) and conference (7-11) marks in nearly two decades, and Oregon was rewarded with its first postseason invitation since 1989. Sonja Newcombe was tabbed to the Pac-10 All-Freshman Team, and Neticia Enesi and Nevena Djordjevic were chosen as honorable mentions.

For comparison's sake, Oregon amassed a 24-64 record the three seasons prior to Moore's arrival, and registered just two Pac-10 wins. Since his arrival, UO has gone 95-59, won 37 Pac-10 matches and made three consecutive NCAA tournament trips for the first time in school history.

The eighth-year Duck mentor initially staked his reputation as a master program rebuilder at Northern Michigan (1989-94, 03-04), Kansas State (1994-97), Texas (1997-01) and Chico State (2001-03).

Those programs combined for a 143-228 (.385) mark before his arrival and improved to 268-118 (.694) the first season under his tutelage. That first stop included the 1993 national championship at Northern Michigan - part of a run that included two championship trips and three quarterfinal appearances.

In the Big 12 Conference, he took a Kansas State program that had gone 24-68 overall and 0-36 in Big 12 play and produced three straight winning seasons, a 26-9 mark in '96 and the team's first NCAA trip. At Texas, he guided the legendary program to the Big 12 title, three NCAA appearances, one Player of the Year honor, seven All-America selections and eight All-Big 12 honors. His Chico State squads went from a 15-75 record the three seasons before his arrival to 16-13 and 18-8 marks, and his subsequent Northern Michigan teams produced a sparkling 50-8 record.

With his 3-1 victory over Oregon State in November 2007, he picked up the 400th win of his coaching career, and now owns an overall record of 494-237 as a collegiate head coach.
