‘Always in it’: Cats remain hopeful despite slow start

Citizen Staff Writer

University of Arizona women’s golf coach Greg Allen didn’t mince words when asked about his team’s opening-round performance at the Pac-10 Championship in Seattle.

“Not a real good day. Kind of a tough start,” he said.

Arizona State’s Anna Nordqvist shot a 4-under-68 to take the individual lead. The Sun Devils (9-over 297) also lead the team competition, followed by USC (303), UCLA (305) and a fourth-place tie between Stanford and UA (309).

Despite the Wildcats stumbling out of the gates with their 21-over-par showing, the coach wasn’t about to throw in the towel.

“In a team tournament like this, you’re always in it,” he said. “If we can cut it in half (today), that will put us in a position for the third round.”

Alison Walshe (3-over 75, tie 9th) led UA, followed by teammates Adriana Zwanck (77, tie 15th), Amanda Wilson (78, tie 17th), Mary Jacobs (79, tie 23rd) and Emily Mason (84, 44th).

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
