photo Football: Fumble sacks Cats' victory hopes

Wazzu capitalizes on mishap for 20-19 win

The Arizona football team lost a game this year because they turned the ball over four times. The Wildcats also lost a game on a failed field goal in the closing seconds. With 90 seconds left Saturday and Arizona leading 19-14, the Wildcats were just a first down away from starting the Pacific 10 Conference 1-0.

However, the Wildcats found a way to lose, as has been customary with the struggling Arizona program over the past couple seasons. [Read article]

photo Football analysis: Cats can't find fortune from fumbles

When the ball's bouncing your way, it's really bouncing your way.

That is until it, well, doesn't bounce your way.

The word play translated directly to the field Saturday for the Arizona football team, as the Wildcats won the turnover battle, 4-2, over visiting Washington State at Arizona Stadium. The problem for the Wildcats: It didn't translate onto the scoreboard.

Neither quarterback, Cougar Josh Swogger or Wildcat Kris Heavner, threw an interception. Neither team dominated on either side of the ball for any length of time, other than a first quarter that saw the Cougars outgain the Wildcats more than 10-to-1 in total offense. [Read article]

photo Soccer just one win from record

8-1 Cats slip past Weber State, 2-1

Only nine games into the 2004 season, this year's Arizona soccer squad is already battling for the title of best team in the program's history.

With their 2-1 win at Weber State (3-7) Saturday, the Wildcats moved to 8-1 on the season, tying them with the UA squad from 1997, who went 8-11-1 overall, the best season in UA history. If they win three more games out of the 12 remaining, the soccer team would have their first winning season in its 10-year history. [Read article]

Volleyball drops 2nd straight in Bay Area

After capturing a pair of tournament victories in the two previous weekends, a 0-2 start in Pac-10 play is not the kind of beginning the Arizona volleyball team was hoping for.

The No. 14 Wildcats (8-4, 0-2 Pacific 10 Conference) fell to No. 16 California Friday night in a five-game heartbreaker (30-20, 22-30, 16-30, 30-22, 13-15).

The Wildcats out-blocked and out-hit the Golden Bears, but could not capitalize, losing their second straight conference game in as many days after being swept by No. 12 Stanford in Arizona's Pac-10 opener. [Read article]

UA tennis pair reaches quarters in Philadelphia

The Wildcat women's tennis team recorded mixed results at the Cissie Leary Invitational, with senior Kelly Perry leading the way by advancing to the quarterfinal round in both singles and doubles action of the Philadelphia tournament.

Perry started her season off by winning her first two singles matches, beating Stephanie Schnitter of Harvard, 6-3, 6-4, in the round of 32 and Penn State's Maaria Husain in a hard-fought, 7-5, 6-4 victory in the Sweet 16 round after opening with a bye. Perry fell short, however against host Penn's Julia Koulbitskaya in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4. [Read article]

Cross country teams finish in top 15 at Roy Griak invite

The men's and women's cross country teams finished 12th and 15th, respectively, in the Roy Griak Invitational in Minneapolis over the weekend.

The Griak Invitational is one of the largest cross country meets in the nation, hosting more than 3,000 runners from over 50 schools.

Sophomore Robert Cheseret led the Wildcats individually, running his eight-kilometer course in a time of 24:14 to finish fifth. Freshman Mohamed Trafeh was the next Wildcat to finish, more a minute behind Cheseret, putting Trafeh in 47th overall. Redshirt freshman Chris Ogle and sophomore Kenny Franks finished in 76th place with identical times of 25:56. [Read article]
