VB: Cats add another ranked win to the road ledger


Arizona won the final two sets to come from behind and take down No. 20 Oregon in five sets in Eugene on Friday night (27-25, 17-25, 21-25, 25-13, 15-11).

The victory marked Arizona's fourth straight road victory vs. a ranked opponent, marking the first time in school history the Cats had accomplished the feat. 

“Terrific win for the team,” said head coach Dave Rubio. “Great effort by everyone on the squad. We really had to dig deep to win the match, it was a much needed win.”

Kendra Dahlke, who did not play the first time these teams met this season in Tucson, a four-set Oregon win, led all scorers with 22 kills on .383 hitting. The sophomore added nine digs and four blocks.

Penina Snuka was excellent as well for Arizona, picking up her sixth straight double-double, 15th overall, with 53 assists and 13 digs. Snuka added four kills, one off her season high.

Laura Larson notched her second straight 20-plus dig match, leading the Cats with 21.

Arizona heads to Corvallis, Oregon to take on Oregon State on Sunday at noon.
