photo Lowe named National Player of Week

Arizona softball centerfielder Caitlin Lowe was selected by the Amateur Softball Association as the National Player of the Week for April 12-18. Lowe led the Wildcats to a 3-0 weekend with two wins over No. 4 California and one against No. 10 Stanford in the Bay area.

Keeping the No. 1 Wildcats perfect at 7-0 in Pac-10 play, Lowe recorded a .545 batting average over the weekend and was instrumental in every game. The 5'5" left-handed slapper from Tustin, Calif., connected on six of 11 at bats, four of which were infield base hits. She was responsible for five of Arizona's 13 runs and has totaled a team-high 65 for the season. [Read article]

UA senior sprinter Jevon Mason gives up baseball for chance at track and field stardom

For most athletes given the choice between playing Division I collegiate baseball or running track, the choice would be obvious.

Senior sprinter Jevon Mason is the exception, however.

"I started track my freshman year in high school. I always knew I was really fast and my friends were doing it, so I joined them because I had nothing else to do," Mason said. [Read article]

Club Sports Notes: Women's water polo edged for regional title; nationals up next

The UA played host this weekend to the Southwest Regional women's water polo meet in what was the Wildcats' final tune-up before the national championship tournament.

After dispatching Colorado College in the first round, top-seeded Arizona nipped Air Force in a 4-3 semifinal victory but fell to Utah 10-8 in the championship game.

Against Air Force, the Falcons seemed overmatched on both sides of the ball in the first half, as Arizona smothered them with a stifling defense, forcing rushed shots and turnovers. [Read article]
