There was once a time, of course, when every Emerald knew Civic by name; it was their field for more than 40 years, the longest time span of any Ems ballpark. Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt played there, as did long-time major leaguers Mike Sweeney and Bob Boone, to name a few. As the Ems continue their tenure at PK Park, that era of Ems baseball becomes increasingly distant.
The 16th ranked Oregon volleyball team closed out their non-conference schedule with a 3-0 (25-19, 25-22, 25-17) sweep of the Cal Poly Mustangs Tuesday evening at Matthew Knight Arena.

Darron Thomas threw for 6 touchdowns – two to freshman sensation DeAnthony Thomas – leading the Oregon Ducks past Nevada 69-20 Saturday afternoon at Autzen Stadium.

The Emeralds lose two out of three to the Canadians. Now that the divisional round is completed, the Vancouver Canadians will visit the Tri-City Dust Devils on Friday night in game one of the NWL Championship series. As for the next set of Eugene Emeralds, they’ll grace the field at PK Park again in late June of 2012.
Oregon’s 16th ranked volleyball team cruised to a 3-0 (25-21, 25-17, 25-21) blanking of Portland State (4-5) Tuesday evening at Matthew Knight Arena. The victory improved the Duck’s season mark to 6-1.
The number four can represent many things. In a positive light, it cen be seen as the insignia on the Fantastic Four’s costumes. But if you’re a Duck fan, then you’re not even thinking about it in comic book terms. Oregon must win a big non-conference game outside Autzen to take it to the next level.
