Photos: Acrobatics and tumbling — Ducks edge out Azusa Pacific and Quinnipiac in first tri-meet of the season
The Oregon acrobatics and tumbling team hosted their second meet of the season Monday night as they took on the Quinnipiac Bobcats and the Azusa Pacific Cougars in a tri-meet at Matthew Knight Arena. The Ducks are coming off a 280.20-274.38 win over the Baylor Bears. The Ducks (3-0) got off to a slow start to the meet. Plus, strong performances by both Azusa Pacific (1-1) and Quinnipiac (2-1) led to tense competition. In the end, the Ducks came away with the victory, winning with a final score of 280.570 to Azusa Pacific’s score of 278.450 and Quinnipiac’s score of 270.180. Oregon is currently on a 22-meet win streak dating back to March 24, 2011 where it lost to No. 1 ranked Maryland. This is the first of two tri-meets for the Ducks.
Next, they take on Alderson-Broaddus and Hawaii Pacific Sunday, March 16 at Matthew Knight Arena in Eugene, Ore.
