Ducks ready for region volleyball champs
Of lh# Emerald
Despite the loss of seven
players from last year’s Region
9 volleyball championship team,
Portland State University is
again the favorite for this year’s
title, says University coach
Chris Voelz.
On Wednesday night, Voelz’s
Ducks will determine for them
selves just how good the Vikings
are in a 8 p.m. showdown at
McArthur Court.
“If on offense we're more
powerful, and if our defense is
equal to PSU, then we can win,”
Voelz says. ”1 think we might
have more talent overall, but
with their quickness they'll
make us earn our points."
The Ducks enter the game
with a 16-8-1 season record after
placing sixth in the eight-team
California Invitational over the
weekend. The Vikings also
competed in the Cal-lnvitation
al, placing fourth with a 2-2
record. Sunday PSU fell to a
powerful UCLA team, dropping
its record to 14-8.
Sophomore Cathy Hill and
junior Karen Beamer are the key
players in the Ducks’ attack
tomorrow night, Voelz says.
"Cathy and Karen will have to
play good for us to win. But it's
still going to take a team effort,
everybody will depend on each
"Although Portland isn’t a tall
or powerful team, they win with
consistent team play. They
won’t give us points — we’ll
have to earn them."
Despite the loss of half of its
championship squad, the Vik
ings are still considered the
Northwest’s best team, Voelz
‘‘Tradition’’ is a major hurdle
imposed by PSU, Voelz says.
“We’re going up against a pro
gram that has had great suc
cess under the same coach
(Marlene Piper, 254-61-3 career
record) for the past seven years.
"They don't give up, instead
they eat away at you — you
can’t have an off night against
them and expect to win; they’re
too consistent.”
The Vikings are likely to rely
on their five-hitters, one-setter
offense, led by Tracy Carlson,
PSU’s all-around setter.

If Portland’s armor shows any
weakness this year, it is their
lack of height, Voelz says. After
6-3 hitter Lynne Holzfuss, the
next tallest Viking is 5-9 middle
blocker Mary Douglass.

hitter Beamer, junior 5-10 setter
Tamra Chambers, and 5-8

“Two years ago in our game
plan, we had a lot of ifs for us to
win,” Voelz says. "Last year we
were close, but this year we’re
even closer... we can win."
