Oregon volleyball was picked to finish third in a preseason Pac-12 coaches poll.

The Ducks received one first-place vote while Stanford - which went 20-0 in Pac-12 play last year - received the other 11. USC was also picked to finish ahead of the Ducks while Washington and Utah were pegged to follow UO in the standings.

Oregon matched its best Pac-12 finish ever last season by tying for second with USC at 13-7. The Ducks reached the Elite Eight in coach Matt Ulmer’s second year before finishing 23-11.

Oregon seniors Ronika Stone and Willow Johnson both made the preseason all-conference team along with sophomore Brooke Nuneviller.

Oregon State was picked to finish last in the conference.
