UA seeking weekend wins

Arizona Daily Wildcat

The Arizona track and field team will go gambling tomorrow for a title, that is when it travels to Reno, Nev., for the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Indoor Track and Field Championships.

"This is kind of a championship-type meet, with most of the West coast teams competing," UA coach Dave Murray said. "It is excellent competition on an excellent track."

The indoor meet will feature teams from the Western Athletic, Big Sky, Big West and Pacific 10 Conferences.

The Arizona women's tennis team will put its undefeated record on the line against third-ranked Stanford (4-0) and fourth-ranked Cal (3-0), who are the early favorites to win the Pacific 10 Conference. The 17th-ranked Wildcats are home after sweeping No. 6 UCLA and No. 11 Southern Cal on the road last weekend. The UA is 7-0 on the season and 2-0 in the Pac-10.

Both matches will be held at the Robson Tennis Center. Arizona will play Stanford at 1:30 p.m. today and Cal at 11 a.m. Saturday.

The Arizona men's swimming team will travel to Tempe tomorrow to compete against cross-state rival Arizona State, and the question everyone is asking is whether the UA men are ready for the challenge.

"The guys are very pumped up about this weekend," said UA head coach Frank Busch, whose Wildcats have never beaten ASU.

Competition begins at 1 p.m.

The Arizona men's club lacrosse team (2-0) is not just hoping to play well against Northern Arizona this weekend, it is hoping to win.

The Laxcats play the Lumberjacks tomorrow at 1 p.m. at Tucson High School.

Said Arizona coach Mickey-Miles Felton: "I expect nothing but the best (against NAU). We are a very good team and we are very proud of it."
