The Oregon volleyball team enters 2018 in year two under head coach Matt Ulmer looking to improve on their second round NCAA tournament exit a season ago. With a solid foundation of returning talent combining with the nation’s no. 4 ranked recruiting class, the Ducks are poised to be a contender in the PAC-12 and were slotted no. 18 in the preseason AVCA Coaches Poll. Following their green-yellow scrimmage the previous Saturday, Oregon will get one final tune-up in the annual alumni match this coming Saturday before opening the season in Lincoln, Nebraska for the VERT Challenge. Before the season gets rolling, head coach Matt Ulmer and a number of players spoke with the media on Tuesday afternoon at the team’s media day. Get set for 2018 with the full interviews below, and stay locked to KWVA for live coverage of every Oregon home match and several road matches.
