Gymnastics: Bisordi takes 5th on floor at NCAAs

Junior gymnast named second-team All-American

The Arizona football program will provide UA fans with free entertainment for UA fans when it closes its spring practice session tomorrow at 2 p.m. at Arizona Stadium in the team's annual Spring Game.

The Arizona softball team could face its toughest test of the season when it travels to the Bay area to face the Pac-10's top schools - but the Wildcats will be armed with a star who shunned Stanford for academic reasons.

No. 1 Arizona (40-1, 4-0 Pacific 10 Conference) travels to the Farm to face the No. 10 Cardinal (32-10, 3-2) today before crossing the San Francisco Bay to play California (36-6, 3-3) tomorrow and Sunday. [Read article]

Baseball brings new momentum back home

Sophomore John Meloan (2-0) will get his second start of the year for the Wildcats. In his first start, Meloan threw eight innings, giving up three runs in earning the victory. [Read article]

Women's tennis tries to salvage season against ASU

The No. 40 Arizona women's tennis team faces No. 41 ASU tomorrow at the Robson Tennis Center in its final home match of the season.

In what has been a tough year for the Wildcats (5-12, 1-6 Pacific 10 Conference), a victory over ASU would help heal some of the wounds from the brutal Pac-10 schedule. All nine Pac-10 teams are ranked in the top 50, and five are in the top 10.

Beyond the issue of upending its rival - Arizona beat ASU earlier in the season for its lone conference win - the match is crucial because it would likely put Arizona in the regionals. [Read article]

The end of the season is fast approaching, and there is nothing the Arizona men's tennis team would like more than feast on some Sun Devils.

The No. 23 Wildcats (11-8, 4-7 Pacific 10 Conference) visit No. 34 Arizona State (8-11, 1-5) tomorrow in their final regular-season match.

Arizona defeated ASU 6-1 in its last meeting and looks to sweep the Devils for the first time since 1994. The Wildcats lead the all-time series 52-34. [Read article]

For Arizona's men's lacrosse team, tomorrow's match at ASU is more than just the regular season finale.

"We're treating it like a playoff game," head coach Kenny Broschart said. "Just gnawing away in the playoffs."

The Laxcats (11-3, 5-1 Western Collegiate Lacrosse League) return to the Phoenix area having come full circle from their season opening 9-4 loss in the Valley of the Sun mid-February to Colorado State. [Read article]
