photo Volleyball's Fresh Faces

No. 14 UA volleyball team relies on youthful trio in wake of injuries

At the onset of the 2004 volleyball season, Arizona freshmen outside hitter Dominique Lamb, libero Krista Chin and setter Amy Dyck knew better than to expect much playing time with a deep and talented group of Wildcats returning.

Two more wins. That's first and foremost in the minds of the players of the surprising Arizona soccer team (6-1), as it heads to Utah today for a pair of games against Brigham Young and Weber State.

"I think it's going to be our first big test besides West Virginia," said UA junior Mallory Miller of today's matchup with BYU (3-4-1), scheduled for 7 p.m. "They've always been good in the past. We have to go in there and take care of business, and keep our winning streak going forward." [Read article]
