There is no relief in sight for the Arizona gymnastics team.

The sixth-ranked Wildcats (9-0) will travel to UCLA's Pauley Pavilion tomorrow to compete in the UCLA/Gilda Marx Gymnastics Invitational. The list of teams competing represents a "Who's Who" of gymnastics with No. 9 Brigham Young (2-1), No. 19 UCLA (2-2), and Cal State-Fullerton (5-0) competing with Arizona. The Wildcats have already defeated five top-20 opponents with their latest ranked victim - Penn State - coming courtesy of the Cat Classic in Missouri.
