TUCSON, AZ Madi Kingdon recorded a match-high 16 kills on .406 hitting to lead Arizona (16-8, 6-6 Pac-12) to a 3-0 (25-22, 25-17, 25-19) sweep at Oregon State (9-14, 0-12 Pac-12) on Sunday inside Gill Coliseum.

In addition, Arizona was also better behind the service line as it recorded five aces compared to just one for OSU.

Kingdon had her most efficient match in Pac-12 play so far this season as she recorded just three errors on 32 swings.

Meanwhile, Penina Snuka did an excellent job of quarterbacking the offense as she dished out a match-high 35 assists to go with six digs and four kills. She was a perfect 4-for-4 in hitting for the match.

Halli Amaro had a strong match as she recorded seven kills on .333 hitting to go with a match-high five blocks. Olivia Magill added eight kills and a block, while Taylor Arizobal provided six kills and two blocks. Jane Croson had five kills, six digs and two blocks to wrap up the Arizona offense.
