Senior Connie Jerz continues to stay head and shoulders above the rest

As a pole vaulter for Arizona track and field, senior Connie Jerz is constantly striving to reach new heights. But despite her collegiate successes, Jerz remains grounded about her accomplishments even as she brings an added dimension of competitiveness and athleticism to the team.

At the 2003 NCAA Outdoor Championships, Jerz bettered her outdoor personal best from 13 feet, 3 inches to 14 feet, 1 inch, earning her second place. [Read article]

Commentary: A surprise: Someone's going for the draft

In what promises to be a season of mass defections, the exodus has begun in Tucson - and with it, history has been made.

It's not Channing Frye. It's not Andre Iguodala. It's not even Salim Stoudamire leaving the Old Pueblo.

So who could it be? Someone so unbelievably mind boggling you wouldn't believe it if she told you herself.

Time out. Did you say she? Herself?

That's right, history has been made right here in the backyard of McKale Center. Women's basketball sensation Shawntinice Polk has declared herself eligible for the 2004 WNBA draft. [Read article]

Women's Hoops Notes: UA coach pleased with Stanford's tourney run

The Wildcat women's basketball team suffered its second straight first-round exit in this season's NCAA Tournament. But the Pac-10 has been represented well in the tournament by an old favorite.

Stanford, which won back-to-back NCAA championships in the early '90s, made its first Elite Eight appearance in seven years after a buzzer-beating win over No. 2 seed Vanderbilt in the Sweet Sixteen. The sixth-seeded Cardinal came a last-second shot short of reaching the Final Four, losing to Tennessee 62-60 Tuesday night. [Read article]

Staff picks

Georgia Tech vs. Oklahoma State

Saturday, 4:07 p.m.

After going .500 last week, I'm still five games behind just about everybody, including the Wildcat newsroom monkeys. I need some upsets, and I refuse to root for a team that beat St. Joe's, so I'm taking Tech. It's hard to argue with a team as deep as the Ramblin' Wreck. Will the Thrill's been known as a sharpshooter ever since his days as a dorm sniper here at the UA, and he'll keep hitting the big shots. [Read article]
