AUDIO: Oregon Baseball Looks to End Season on High Note Versus Arizona

Coming off a demoralizing sweep at the hands of ranked UCLA, Oregon baseball returns home looking to close their season with a win against Arizona. The season finale comes after false reports circulated earlier this week that Ducks’ head coach George Horton would not return for next season, which was quickly corrected by the Oregon athletic department that has committed to Horton through 2019. The Ducks’ three game series with Arizona will feature a new face in the starting rotation, with freshman Cullen Kafka earning the opening spot on Thursday due to the needed rest for regular starter Kolby Sommers. Kenyon Yovan and Matt Mercer will start on Friday and Saturday as usual. Listen below as Horton and his players spoke after practice Wednesday afternoon about their season finale.

AUDIO: Oregon Softball Preps for Kentucky in Super Regionals, Again

Mike White is now a perfect 27-0 in regional rounds as Oregon softball’s head coach and the No. 1 Ducks are onto the NCAA Tournament Super Regional Round for the ninth-straight year. Just like a season ago, the Ducks host the Kentucky Wildcats, the tournament’s 16th-overall seed. Last year, the Ducks swept Kentucky 2-0 in the Super Regionals but needed a come-from behind win to do it. Before the team’s Tuesday afternoon practice, members of the Ducks met with and spoke to the media to preview the series, which begins at Thursday at 6:00 p.m., continues Friday at 8:00 p.m. and ends on Saturday at 6:00 p.m., if necessary. All games will be broadcast on 88.1 FM. Below are the full interviews.
