Cats go for 9th – title, not life

Citizen Staff Writer
Our Opinion

Congratulations to the University of Arizona softball team, which is headed to its 23rd consecutive postseason tournament.

Unfortunately, the Wildcats – seeded ninth nationally – won’t be playing at home in the first round of the NCAA championship tournament. The team was inexplicably sent to Louisville, Ky., as lower seeds won the right to host regionals.

But no matter. The Cats are used to winning the first game of the tournament regardless of where it is played. UA has won 20 of the 22 first-round games in its current streak.

The Wildcats have made it to the College World Series 20 times under coach Mike Candrea. And they have come home with the national title eight times.

We wish them the best as they go after No. 9.

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
