Th At-large bid to nationals unlikely after losses to Cal, UCSB

e Arizona Laxcats lost two WCLL playoff games during the weekend and now must wait to see if they receive an at-large bid to the national championships May 10-13 in St. Louis.

On Friday night, No. 10 Arizona traveled to the University of California at San Diego to take on California, the second-ranked team in the U.S. Lacrosse Intercollegiate Association.

A UA win would have all but locked up a bid at nationals, but Arizona fell to the Golden Bears, 11-7. California went on to win the West Coast Lacrosse League Division 'A' title yesterday with a 12-10 win against top-ranked Sonoma State University.

The Laxcats had a chance to improve their post-season chances Saturday against the University of California at Santa Barbara. However, Arizona was defeated by the No. 13 Gauchos, 9-8.

Arizona (11-7) defeated UCSB 9-6 earlier this season in Tucson.

Head coach Mickey-Miles Felton and the rest of the Laxcats will learn this week if they receive one of the four at-large bids, but an 0-2 weekend means their season is likely finished.

The Laxcats were traveling back to Tucson at press time and could not be reached for comment.
