    photo Seniors set on extending successful run

    Vaunted class gunning for few more weeks of tourney play together

    Arizona volleyball seniors Angie Ayers, Kim Glass, Jennifer Abernathy and Bre Ladd are pretty certain Saturday's Senior Day won't be the last time they're together in McKale Center.
