photo Shattering Glass

Kim Glass had a heated look on her face. She couldn't believe what was happening to her team. She was playing in front of the audience she had always dreamed of, and many of them began to lose hope in their team when it went down two games to zero.

But Glass didn't. She couldn't her team needed her.

She wasn't used to losing because she didn't have to experience it much back in high school in Pennsylvania. Plus, she did not want to lose in the biggest game of her college career against the best player in her sport Stanford's Logan Tom. She knew she could do better, but if she didn't do it now it would be to late. [Read article]

Washington State: from worst to first

It was just a season ago when Washington State came to Tucson with hardly any expectations.

Picked by the Pacific 10 Conference coaches to finish last in the league, WSU was just hoping not to finish in the conference cellar for the fourth-straight year. The Cougars had very few known players on offense, with the exception of their quarterback, and a defense that was questionable.

However, after putting up 28 unanswered points in only 13 offensive plays to start the game on the road against the Wildcats, the Cougars cruised to a 48-21 victory. [Read article]

Soccer breaking old team records

The Arizona soccer team is rewriting its own record book this season, as UA has already established or met nine school records this season. At 5-7-1 overall, the team is on pace to finish with a school-best win total. Include a record of 87 points on 30 goals and 27 assists, and it has beaten the school record set by the 1999 team of 80 points.

"We're excited about the good things that are happening to this team," head coach Cathy Klein said. "There's so many ways to measure success and these are steps towards our goal." [Read article]

Playboy picks Jayhawks for hoops championship

ESPN's Dick Vitale might think the Arizona men's basketball team is No. 1, but Playboy has a different team ranked first.

In Playboy magazine's December issue (on sale Monday, Oct. 28) it predicts a Kansas championship and ranks the Top 25 teams in Division 1 hoops, putting the Jayhawks at the top.

However, the magazine does rank the Wildcats No. 2 overall. It also named senior forward Luke Walton a member of the Playboy 2002-2003 Preseason Team. [Read article]

photo Men's tennis to wrap up fall season

After a ninth-place finish in the Pacific 10 Conference and losing the team's top player in Steven Capriati, the Arizona men's tennis team's future looked dim for the 2002-2003 season.

However, that hasn't been the case.

During the fall individual season, the Wildcats have looked like a different team, with many players rising to new levels.

Those new levels will be challenged this weekend as Arizona concludes its fall season at the Omni Hotel Southern California Region VIII Fall Championship in Los Angeles. [Read article]
