Unbelievable run keeps Oregon State on the road</span

[NCAA DIVISION I WOMEN]
Oregon State was so excited about its first run to the Sweet 16 in program history it decided to stay on the road. The Beavers pulled back-to-back upsets at Ohio State (3-1) and against regional No. 3 seed Florida (1-0) and then immediately headed to Michigan, where they will remain until Thursday when they travel to Notre Dame for Friday's third-round game.

After spending five days in Columbus, that means the Beavers will have spent 10 days on the road in the Midwest. On the agenda in Ann Arbor: laundry, study hall and soccer. The No. 1 tourist attraction: the Big House, home of Wolverine football.

Coach Linus Rhode's reaction to the postseason run? "It's an unbelievable feeling."

"If you would have asked me this when we started in August, I would have said that it was a dream, but to actually be here it's unbelievable," said Rhode, who captained Portland to the men's final four in 1995.

Courtney Wetzel scored two goals to lead the Beavers past Ohio State, while Melinda Ingalls' golden goal in the 99th minute moved OSU past Florida and into the regional semifinals.

Ingalls is part of a sophomore class that arrived in 2008, the same year Linus took over as OSU head coach, and has helped transform for the program. Five sophomore started against Florida on Sunday
