photo Softball: Schultz, Wildcats rain on UCLA's parade, twice

One day after the UA softball team beat No. 2 UCLA, much of the Wildcats' typically rabid fan base left yesterday's matchup between the nation's two best teams early.

Those who did missed another amazing finish.

The No. 1 Wildcats (38-1, 2-0 Pacific 10 Conference) came back from a three-run deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning to beat the Bruins 5-4. Just hours earlier, Arizona rallied from a 5-0 seventh-inning hole to beat UCLA 7-5 Saturday night. [Read article]

photo Gymcats barely miss trip to nationals

Despite its highest NCAA score ever, the Arizona gymnastics team's season ended Saturday in heartbreaking fashion: one spot short of nationals.

The No. 18 Gymcats (13-10-2, 2-3-1 Pacific 10 Conference) finished third at the NCAA South Central Regional Championships, scoring 196.375 - their first 196 or better in a regional and the school-record 10th such score in a row. Arizona lost to No. 5 Utah (197.625) and No. 8 Florida (197.050) while beating No. 24 Arkansas (195.500), Illinois (195.400) and Illinois-Chicago (193.875). [Read article]

Baseball can't finish sweep of Beavers

The Arizona baseball team keeps narrowly missing out on sweeps.

The Wildcats settled for two of three against Oregon State this weekend when they lost 6-5 yesterday in Corvallis, Ore.

The Wildcats (15-12-1, 4-2 Pacific 10 Conference) won the first two games of the weekend with a 14-7 win Saturday and a 4-3 victory Friday.

"Overall it was a good weekend, but it could have been great," junior catcher Richard Mercado said. [Read article]

photo Women's golf finishes 6th in regular season finale

The Arizona women's golf team finished in sixth place yesterday at the Ping/ASU Invitational, the final event of the 2004 spring regular season.

The Wildcats, who have struggled the entire semester, put together their best stretch of the past three months with rounds of 297-296-297, cracking 300 for the first time this spring.

"It was disappointing in the way we finished," head coach Greg Allen said, "but it is nice to see us post some decent numbers." [Read article]

photo Softball Analysis: Weekend full of surprises ends with No. 1 UA sweeping Bruins

Power hitters bunting, slap hitters belting home runs, clutch hitting and surprisingly spotty pitching added up to a two-game sweep for the No. 1 UA softball team against No. 2 UCLA this weekend.

Both games had everything to do with pitching, but not in the way that most would have expected, as UCLA pitcher Keira Goerl came into the weekend with an 0.39 ERA, and UA ace Alicia Hollowell came into the series at 0.52. [Read article]

photo Women's tennis snaps losing skid against WSU

After losing eight straight matches, the Arizona women's tennis team desperately needed a win. It got one yesterday, routing Washington State 6-0.

But yesterday's long-awaited victory secured only a weekend split for the Wildcats, who faced Washington Saturday after being rained out Friday. They lost a 4-3 match, but the players said the loss only motivated the team more for yesterday's win.

"Obviously, confidence-wise, with all the close 4-3 losses that have been coming lately, it's been hard to really be upbeat about things," junior Diane Hollands said. "But it was a good win, and we all played really well." [Read article]

Men's tennis splits on Northwest swing

The Arizona men's tennis team finally got its first Pac-10 win of the season, but still ended the weekend on a sour note.

The Wildcats (12-7, 1-4 Pacific 10 Conference) beat Oregon 5-2 on the road Friday to carry its winning streak to four, but fell 6-1 yesterday at Washington.

The depth in the lineup was the key to the win over Oregon, as the Wildcats' two top singles players and top doubles team lost. However, no one else in the lineup had a close match as the middle and bottom of the lineup took apart the Ducks. [Read article]

photo Laxcats overcome weather during sweep

The Arizona men's lacrosse team finished the second game of its homestand with a 15-1 victory over Southern California yesterday, after battling both the Trojans and the elements.

The Laxcats had already staked out a 6-0 lead when a heavy downpour and lightning forced officials to call a rain delay with 4:43 left in the first period. The game resumed an hour later despite continuing rain, and Arizona finished the quarter with four straight goals. [Read article]

Rugby outscores foes 150-8 at Austin invite

UA wins 4 straight to take championship

The Arizona men's rugby team capped a four-game sweep in the Austin Invitational yesterday with a 48-5 win over Rice in the championship round.

The Wildcats' win over the Owls concluded a two-day stint in Austin, Texas, during which Arizona outscored its opposition by a combined score of 150-8.

Sophomore lock Garrett Carr and junior prop Paul Robinson were among six players who scored tries for the Wildcats (12-5, 5-3 So-Cal Conference). Arizona completed its third 10-win season in four years. [Read article]
