COLUMBUS, Ohio - The No. 20 University of Oregon volleyball team (1-0) opened its 45th season in impressive fashion Friday with a 3-0 win over Toledo (1-1) in the Sports Import DC Kohl Classic.

UO also stayed perfect in season openers under eighth-year head coach Jim Moore, thanks to its 25-14, 25-12, 25-19 victory in the teams' first-ever meeting.

"For a first match of the season, I thought we played pretty well," Moore said. "We used a different lineup each set so I was happy that we were able to rotate every one through. There are still some things we need to work on, but it's a good start."

The Oregon offense finished with an impressive .364 hitting percentage and limited the Rockets to a .058 mark. In other stat categories, the Ducks held notable edges in kills (42-20), aces (8-4) and digs (31-16), while Toledo logged more blocks (7-2).

Among UO's individual leaders, senior outside hitter Katherine Fischer landed a team-high 12 kills for the match, and hit .348.

All-American and redshirt senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma added eight kills in her two sets of play, and topped the squad in hitting (.467) and aces (2).

Other category leaders included sophomore defensive specialist Natalie Bookout Gonzalez (2 aces), junior setter Lauren Plum (24 assists) and senior libero Haley Jacob (12 digs).

Also on defense, four Ducks logged single block assists.

Oregon's talented freshman class quickly made their presence felt in their first collegiate match.

Middle blocker Clelia DeFelice (kill, ace, 1 block) and defensive specialist Tatum Norton (2 digs) earned starts. Two other of the team's key offensive contributors were outside hitter Maddie Magee (6 kills, .857) and middle blocker Canace Finley (4 kills).

For Toledo, category leaders included Becca Reidy (7 kills, .267), Dakota Harkins (6 blocks), Adria Pryor (11 assists), McCall Paynter (5) and Brooke Frazer (2 aces).

In the first set, UO never trailed but held a slim, two-point lead at 14-12, before an eight-point run fueled by two kills and an ace by Bergsma made it 20-12. The returning All-American added her sixth kill of the set to make it a 24-14, and freshman Maddie Magee posted her fourth kill of the period in five attempts to give Oregon the set, 25-14.

Toledo staked its only lead of the match early in the second set, 2-1, before UO answered with an 8-2 run behind the serving of Gonzalez to go up, 9-4. The Riverside, Calif., logged her first ace of the season (and second career-wise), then added another later in the stanza to pace the team in the category for the second time in her career.

The two teams traded side-outs until 16-10, when Gonzalez's serving fueled another six-point run to put Oregon ahead, 22-10. For the period, Fischer landed kills on all seven of her attempts, while sophomore middle blocker Ariana Williams and freshman outside hitter Martenne Bettendorf connected on all three of their kills for the match in the period.

In the third set, the Ducks jumped out to an 8-1 lead with the first five points spurred by the serving of sophomore setter Shellsy Ashen (including an ace on her first serve of the season). Toledo later drew within three twice, at 11-8 and 12-9, but a 9-3 Duck response put UO ahead 21-12 on an ace by DeFelice. Toledo staked a hat trick of two-point runs to pull back within 23-18, but a pair of kills by sophomore outside hitter Liz Brenner ended the match.

Friday's outcome marked the sixth, opening-match sweep in Moore's tenure. Other blankings came over Gonzaga (2005), UC Irvine (2006), Idaho State (2007), San Francisco (2009) and Santa Clara (2010).

In the other season openers, UO posted 3-1 victories over New Mexico State (2008) and then-No. 1 Penn State (2011). The latter contest ended the four-time defending NCAA champions' 94-match home win streak last August and was Oregon's first-ever upset of a top-ranked foe.

In other action earlier Friday at St. John Arena, Toledo beat Houston in five sets (23-25, 25-21, 15-25, 25-23, 15-11), and No. 24 Ohio State swept Houston (25-21, 25-20, 25-21).

Looking ahead to UO's final-day action Saturday, it faces Houston at 10:30 a.m. Pacific Time and then host Ohio State at 4:30 p.m. PT.
