photo Sophomores lead soccer revival

For years, the Arizona women's soccer team was a laughingstock, consistently languishing near the bottom of the Pacific 10 Conference standings.

That was until head coach Dan Tobias reloaded his defense with the recruiting class of 2004.

With sophomore goalie McCall Smith and second-year defenders Claire Bodiya and Kaity Heath playing nearly every minute last season, the Wildcats broke a slew of school records. [Read article]

photo NAU can't be overlooked

In-state foe might be 'biggest game of the year' for UA

A date with Big Ten Conference foe Purdue looms large in the Arizona football team's future, but that isn't preventing Wildcats head coach Mike Stoops' players from overlooking Saturday's encounter with Division I-AA NAU.

"We don't have room to not be focused," redshirt sophomore quarterback Richard Kovalcheck said. "We've got to come out every week and take it one game at a time." [Read article]

From the Booth: For J-Mac, choice was math or dad

Some members of the media may attack Arizona sophomore forward Jawann McClellan for his academic troubles, but students who have also lost a family member during the school year may be able to relate to him.

Trio of Dorados has Cats stacked

Arizona doesn't really have feeder schools from which to consistently draw athletes, but the women's volleyball team has nonetheless tapped a local high school for prospects again.

This year two freshmen, outside hitter Marti Larriva and libero Audrey Bockerstette, formerly of Canyon del Oro High School, have joined another one-time Dorado, senior middle blocker Bre Ladd. [Read article]

Volleyball notes

The 2005 Arizona women's volleyball season may be young, but senior outside hitter Jennifer Abernathy is already raking in the accolades, as she was named Pacific 10 Conference Player of the Week yesterday.

After leading all players in kills per game (4.67) at the Four Points University Plaza Wildcat Classic in McKale Center over the weekend, Abernathy was recognized as the tournament MVP. She ranked second in service aces per game (.44) and sported a .400 hitting percentage. [Read article]

photo Pastner's Notebook: Shakur, Rodgers impress in workouts

In this edition of Pastner's Notebook, Arizona men's basketball assistant coach Josh Pastner talks about his personal ties to Hurricane Katrina, collegiate Olympians and sophomore guard Mustafa Shakur's work ethic.

Wildcat: You grew up in the Houston area, which is somewhat near Louisiana. How have you been affected by Hurricane Katrina?

Pastner: No one directly in my family (has been), but I know quite a few people who have been affected. Someone who is familiar is Eugene Edgerson's family, Eugene being a former player here. His family had to relocate to Houston. They lost everything. Eugene's mom and his brothers and sisters, they lost everything. [Read article]
