What’s up Wildcats?
We hope you are having a great week so far. We have a few things to fill you in on about some of the sporting events that took place last week.
The softball team opened up its season by participating in the Hillenbrand Invitational that took place on February 11th through the 14th. They faced Southern Utah in the first two games, then played North Texas, Purdue, Nebraska-Omaha, and UC Santa Barbara. The Wildcats swept in six games making the overall score overall score 63-12. The team is traveling to Palm Springs in California to play in another tournament.
It was also a big week for gymnastics. After being on the road for two weeks, the GymCats faced Stanford on February 13th in McKale. The team hit 24 for 24 of the routines but the fell short, making the overall score 196.65-196.15. There was about 3,000 people in the crowd and the Cats continued to hit the vault and show off their grit through the routines. They have a busy week ahead of them as the prepare to take on our rival, Arizona State in Tempe on Monday, February 22nd.
The basketball team also faced UCLA on Friday night and USC on Sunday night. The Cats struggled a bit in the first half when they played UCLA but were able to come back from a 10 point deficit, get it together defensively, and took advantage of the foul trouble that UCLA was getting into. Gabe York was a top scorer with 17 points against USC. Ryan Anderson also added 14 points and Mark Tollefsen scored 11 points alone in the first half. Arizona has now moved up to #12 in the AP Poll. The Wildcats will take on Arizona State this Wednesday in McKale at 7 p.m. Let’s fill up the Zoo and remember to wear red!!
That’s all we have for you this week!
