Senior outside hitter Alaina Bergsma and junior setter Lauren Plum were named first team All-Americans by the American Collegiate Volleyball Association today while sophomore outside hitter Liz Brenner was named to the second team.

The Ducks beat Nebraska on Saturday in the Elite Eight to earn the first Final Four appearance in program history. Oregon will play No. 1 Penn State — who boast two All-Americans of their own — on Thursday in the national semifinals in Louisville seeking their 30th win of the season. The Ducks beat Penn State last season, ending the Nittany Lions 94-match home win streak.
