After an exciting weekend of Beaver sports, here’s your quick roundup of events from the past couple days.
Jade Carey dominates the weekend
There’s been a lot of excitement around having Olympic gold-medalist, Jade Carey, in Corvallis competing for Oregon State. In fact, according to John Canzano reported that Carey’s signed the biggest NIL deal in the state of Oregon ($200k). Jade Carey and the rest of the team lived up to the hype this weekend knocking off UCLA and UC Davis in a three-way competition.
Jade Carey was electric setting a school record in all-around competition. Carey’s score was also a season high nationally for all-around. Check out the highlights below courtesy of the Pac-12 Network.

Oregon State Baseball #11 in Preseason Poll
Baseball America released their preseason top 25 poll this morning. The Beavers checked in at #11. Last season Oregon State finished with a record of 37-24 (16-14 in Pac-12) and they lost in the postseason (regionals). Will 2022 be Mitch Canham’s best season as head coach?
Oregon State Football hires Anthony Perkins
It was reported yesterday that Oregon State football would hire Anthony Perkins as the school’s next corners coach. Jonathan Smith made it official Monday morning. With Trent Bray hired as the full time defensive coordinator the Beavs had an opening on their defense. It’s unclear how the duties will be shared with Blue Adams currently the Beavs secondary coach though.
