What’s up Cats? We hope the colder weather is treating you well and that everyone is getting ready for the holidays! This week was a full one for Arizona Athletics and we can’t wait to fill you in!
Women’s soccer played ASU this weekend, and though they weren’t able to pull out a win this time, their game still had a record breaking attendance! This weekend the Cats are hosting an NCAA tournament match for the first time ever. They will face Northern Colorado this Friday at 6pm.
Women’s Volleyball played both Washington teams this weekend, beating Washington State 3-1 and losing to Washington 3-0. Volleyball faces Utah this week in an away game and their next home game is against USC on the 20th! Make sure to come out and show your support!
Our football team has faced some extreme adversity this season with a lot of injuries and starters out. Rich Rod has had to do some sleuthing to find a solution for our defensive line as well as offensive struggles. This weekend the Cats traveled to sunny Los Angeles to play USC. Although they lost, the Cats put in a lot of effort and fought the entire game. Anu Solomon threw three touchdowns to one interception for 352 yards while playing the whole game over Jerrard Randall. This really allowed him to get his rhythm back within the game and kept the flow of the offense constant throughout. By the beginning of the second quarter the Cats were up on USC 14-0 and ended up being tied by the half 17-17. They gave up a hard fight and ended up losing with a score of 38-30, but the game showed the redemption of the team’s rhythm, which was a spectacular sight. Our last home game is on Saturday against Utah at 8:00pm. The game will be aired on FOX Sports 1.
Due to the Basketball game on Friday, Bear Down Friday will be moved to Thursday at 5:00! Speaking of Basketball, Men’s Basketball had their first home game this past Sunday and their performance was anything but ordinary. The Cats beat Chico State with a whopping score of 90-54. We learned a lot through this game. One is that Cats are out for blood this season and two is that our team is stronger than ever.
Get ready for a crazy weekend ZonaZoo!
