photo Soccer: Southern California dreamin'

11 Golden State natives on soccer team return home

Just because the upstart Wildcat soccer team will be wearing its trademark navy blue road uniforms doesn't mean the surroundings won't be familiar.

The Arizona soccer team looks to take advantage of playing at "home" this weekend, when it faces off against Southern California and UCLA in Los Angeles.

Eleven of the 23 players on the Wildcat squad hail from the Southern California area, giving family, friends and old coaches a chance to see their favorite player in action, instead of just hearing the results from the usual postgame phone call. [Read article]

photo Soccer heads to LA hoping to end futility against USC, UCLA

The Wildcat soccer team has its two most daunting tasks of the season in one weekend, as it plays Southern California this afternoon and No. 3 UCLA Sunday in Los Angeles.

"We need to have the same attitude every time we go into every game. You know - the attitude that we want it more," said sophomore midfielder Traci Adler. "I don't care if you are ranked or not. Whoever wants it more in the end - if you fight hard, you are going to win the battle." [Read article]

Hankwitz hoping for first win at UA helm tomorrow

Wildcat football will be heading to Berkeley this weekend to take on the only team it has beaten in the last two seasons of Pacific 10 Conference play.

Arizona's loss two weeks ago to UCLA was a heartbreaker - a defeat that interim head coach Mike Hankwitz called the worst in his 33-year career. But it also sparked some excitement in the locker room. [Read article]

While many Wildcat fans may think they have had a rough couple of years watching their football team, those struggles can't compare to the last two years California senior running back Adimchinobe Echemandu has endured.

Echemandu has sat out each of the last two seasons, trying to rehabilitate from a torn ACL and torn lateral meniscus, along with dealing with academic problems.

"He has had an upand-down career and he has kind of came out of nowhere," said interim UA head coach Mike Hankwitz. [Read article]

Losing to Arizona State is never a good thing for any Wildcat team.

But after blowing a 2-0 lead to the Sun Devils last month, the Arizona volleyball team stumbled to start the season and put itself in a difficult hole to climb out of.

Arizona (9-11, 3-6 Pacific 10 Conference) will seek to even the season series with the Sun Devils (8-10, 3-6 Pac-10) tomorrow at 7 p.m. in McKale Center. Last time the two teams met - in Tempe - ASU rallied from a 0-2 deficit, thanks to four Devils with double-digit kills. [Read article]

Men's water polo plays for national tourney bid at home

A trip to the national tournament is on the line this weekend for the Arizona men's water polo team as championship season kicks off Saturday in Tucson.

Arizona plays host to the Southwest Division Championship tournament tomorrow and Sunday at the Student Recreation Center. The winner receives an automatic bid into the national tournament.

Despite being ranked No. 2 in the nation among club teams, the Wildcats need to win the division championship to qualify for the trip to nationals at Texas A&M in College Station, Texas. [Read article]
