photo Soccer: Fearless with flair

Junior Mallory Miller not afraid to put it all on the line for the score

The number of goals and assists speak for how talented she is, but it's how she gets the goals and assists that scream it.

"It's a little bit of flair and a lot of fearlessness," UA head soccer coach Dan Tobias said of junior midfielder and offensive force Mallory Miller.

With three goals and seven assists, there has hardly been a game in 2004 where Miller did not affect the outcome. Without her, the 8-1 record they currently enjoy might be somewhat different. [Read article]

Commentary: Athletics, academics mix well on UA campus

Today marks the first of the Wildcat's multi-piece package breaking down the underside of the UA athletics department.

It's athletes and academics - sports and school.

And yes, those words do mix.

It's obvious that men's basketball is the bread of Arizona sports, and softball is the butter. Football and, apparently, soccer are the up-and-comers, while it doesn't seem like golf or swimming will ever get the credit deserved on this campus. [Read article]
