September 27, 2011

This past weekend, the Women's Volleyball team continued their early season success by sweeping Colorado and Utah on the road. The Ducks dominated both matches 3-0 moving their season record to 11-1.

The Ducks are ranked #15 in the nation and sit alone atop the Pac-12 standings with a league record of 4-0. They continue a four game road trip this weekend with matches against Washington and Washington State before returning home for a pair of crucial matches against 4th ranked Cal and 6th ranked Stanford.


LaMichael James
In Lamichael James' two plus years playing running back for the University of Oregon, he has put himself into very heady company. Already the all-time leading rusher in Oregon history, James added a few more records to his resume this past Saturday.

With 288 yards on 23 carries, James surpassed the single game record of 285 set by Onterrio Smith against Washington State in 2001. Adding to that, James also surpassed Derek Loville for most career rushing touchdowns. Truly an impressive week for James which was capped by being named Pac-12 player of the week.


Duck Fans Celebrate
While LaMichael James was running over around and by the Arizona Wildcats defense Saturday, the rest of the team did much of the same. Kenjon Barner returned from injury to score three touchdowns (2 rush, 1 receiving). Finishing out the offensive fireworks, Darron Thomas accounted for four touchdowns of his own with two more passing touchdowns to go along with 2 rushing touchdowns. James once again leads the nation in rushing with 604 Yards.
