Eastern Oregon senior Cassie Beyer was raised around volleyball from the time she was born.

"I just always knew I'd play volleyball," the Mountaineers' setter said.

Her teammate, senior middle blocker Mariah Dodrill, chose volleyball over basketball.

Dodrill said she chose the latter because it is "more fun playing volleyball, (and) a lot more exciting."

Both would like to have memorable final seasons.

"I want to win our (Cascade Collegiate) Conference and turn heads doing it," Beyer said.

Though still looking for their first win of the year, the Mountaineers are playing tough. Eastern (0-3 overall, 0-2 CCC) gave Oregon Institute of Technology a scare in conference play this past Saturday.

Tech had a 27-18 lead in Game 1 before Eastern went on a 10-0 run to take the lead at 28-27. Tech clung to a lead of 31-30 after three lead changes before Eastern won the next three points and the game 33-31. The Mountaineers lost the next three games 30-10, 30-21, 30-22.

"We're going to peak at the right time," Dodrill said.

Dodrill and Beyer will look to each other to lead the team during the season.

"Mariah's leadership and intensity is amazing," Beyer said. "It inspires the team to play better."

Dodrill's hitting and blocking have improved immensely from the beginning of the season and continues to improve every game, she said.

Dodrill is leading the team in kills (2.70 KPG) and blocks (1.10 BPG).

Beyer's ability to read the court and see what is happening is outstanding, Dodrill said.

Beyer is averaging 7.30 assists per game.

Eastern hosts Concordia at 7 p.m. Friday for the Mountaineers' first home match of the season.
