Just three days after posting the second-best score in team history and tying Washington, the Arizona gymnastics team put up the third-best score in its history and lost.

photo Women's golf slump continues

Yesterday at Arizona National Golf Club, a rainbow appeared in the middle of continual rainstorms. The Arizona women's golf team is probably hoping it was a sign of better play to come.

The UA women shot a 27-over par 311 through rain and hail at the Arizona National Golf Club and fell to eighth place, 26 shots behind leader Ohio State. [Read article]
