Wildcat notes

The University of Arizona snagged two academic awards Wednesday.

• Craig Sheedy, a senior on the Wildcats’ diving team, was the men’s winner of the NCAA’s Walter Byers Postgraduate Scholarship, given for outstanding academic accomplishment and superior citizenship. Sheedy will receive a $24,000 scholarship.

Sheedy has a 4.0 grade point average in biochemistry and molecular biophysics, plus a second major in physiology and a minor in Spanish. The Byers award was established in 1988. Sheedy is Arizona’s first recipient. He and USC women’s soccer player Ann Massey were chosen from among six finalists.

• The UA men’s cross country team was among almost 800 teams across the nation recognized for top academic performance as part of the NCAA academic reform program. Based on its most recent multi-year Academic Progress Rates, the UA squad earned an NCAA Public Recognition Award, given each year to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their overall APRs.

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
