Laxcat senior attackman and captain, Dave Sherman, was not always a lacrosse fanatic. Sherman was an everyday athlete who experienced a unique transformation, as he was netted by the Arizona lacrosse program.

However, after playing six years of lacrosse, the end of this season will close a valued chapter in Sherman's athletic career.

"I was always an athlete in high school, playing volleyball and football. I had never watched lacrosse; I didn't even know what it looked like," said Sherman, a Tucson native. [Read article]

Women's golf tied for 3rd at Pac-10s

After the second round in the Pacific 10 Championship, the Arizona women's golf team is tied for third place, 10 shots behind defending Pac-10 Champion UCLA.
