The Oregon Ducks Acrobatics & Tumbling team followed up a season opening win on the road at Concordia Wisconsin with a successful home debut, taking a 280.100 to 267.595 win over Hawaii Pacific Friday evening at Matthew Knight Arena.
“We definitely started out rough in the compulsory event, but we talked about it, leaving that in compulsories, and turning it around going into the next parts of the meet,” said head coach Keenyn Won. “I think the girls had a ton of energy tonight, we really executed the things that we wanted to execute, and we worked on a lot of changes from our last meet on Monday going into this meet. I think the girls absolutely crushed everything they did tonight, so it was really exciting, really high energy from the fans and the team.”
That high energy will be a necessary element in the immediate future as well with the Ducks next facing perennial rival and defending national champion Baylor next, in Waco. Oregon returns to Matthew Knight Arena to host Quinnipiac and Gannon in a three-way meet on Sunday, March 11th, beginning at 2:00 pm.
