Jackson and Oliveira reap victory as SOU drops 2 | Sports

EUGENE — The results for the University of Southern Oregon beach volleyball team against Corban and Bushnell mirrored those of a week ago, as the top-ranked Warriors won 5- 0 and the Beacons won 4-1 Saturday at Churchill Sand Volleyball Grounds.

Once again, No. 2 pairing Taylor Jackson and Karina Oliveira were responsible for SOU’s victory. They swept Bushnell’s Roslyn McLellan and Madi Trueblood, 21-12 and 21-16, and improved to 5-4 on the season.

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

“Our game is progressing, but we’re exceptional as partners and teammates, and we’re playing with joy,” SOU coach Paul Elliott said.

The Raiders will face Northwest (Wash.) and Corban next Saturday in Salem, their final competition before the NAIA West Group Qualifying Tournament April 6-8 in Chula Vista, Calif.
