EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon's Elizabeth Brenner, who has played four sports for the Ducks, is leaving basketball to go for her fifth, sand volleyball.

Brenner, who has played indoor volleyball, softball, basketball and thrown the javelin on the Ducks' track and field team, also wants to focus on tryouts for the U.S. women's national volleyball team next month in Colorado.

Following the indoor volleyball season, Brenner joined the basketball team and averaged 3.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 12.5 minutes in eight games. She finishes her career with an average of 6.2 points and 5.8 rebounds in 48 games.

Sand volleyball starts its inaugural season at Oregon on March 21.

Brenner is also expected to rejoin track and field this season. Last year she placed eighth at the NCAA championships in the javelin.
