Bailey Webster had 14 kills, Haley Eckerman added 12 and third-seeded Texas swept Oregon on Saturday night for its first NCAA volleyball championship since 1988.

The Longhorns won 25-11, 26-24, 25-19.

Texas (29-4) has been a recent regular at volleyball's Final Four, making its fourth appearance in five years and playing in its first title game since 2009, when the Longhorns lost to Penn State in five sets after leading 2-0.

This time they took care of business for their second title in four tries, recording their third sweep in the past four matches.

Webster, a first-team AVCA All-American, helped the Longhorns on defense as well with four blocks and keyed a second-set comeback. She was the tournament's most outstanding player.

Liz Brenner and Katherine Fischer each had 13 kills for fifth-seeded Oregon (30-5).

A crowd of 16,448 fans attended the game, the second-largest for an NCAA tournament final.
