On our way home from Portland to Ashland today, the other members of my car wanted to go shopping. They dropped me off at this game while they headed to the mall. The game didn’t last long as Stanford beat #7 Oregon three straight.

A little different perspective compared to yesterday’s photo, although both photos were taken from the same seat in the Knight Arena. Alaina is the star of the University of Oregon Women’s Volleyball Team. She is also the current Miss Oregon, having won the title in late 2011.

Posters of Alaina Bergsma were being given out at Sunday’s game.

Today’s photo was from yesterday’s Standford-University of Oregon women’s volleyball match in Eugene. Stanford won in three straight sets and will retain their #1 ranking. The Ducks, with their loss to California on Friday night as well, will likely fall in the standings from their #2 perch.
