TUCSON, Ariz. -

Hey Wildcat fans!  This weekend we take on #5 USC on Friday night and #2 UCLA on Saturday night.  After losing to the Northern California schools (Stanford and Cal) who were both also ranked in the top ten, I am pretty excited for another opportunity to come out on top against some tough competition.  Last year at home we went to 5 with both UCLA and USC, but came up short.  These wins are really important to us as a team.  It will prove how good we really are.  

In practice this week I saw so many teammates improving. Courtney Karst is doing a great job! Her attacking has improved so much, and she is definitely a key to our success.  Everyone is on the same page and working super hard.  Dave was really pleased with practice, too.  I am just ready to go out there and compete to win.  Winning is all I want!  

We had a couple of injuries last week, but everyone has worked hard to make sure they are a 100% for this week! The team always plays better at home in front of our fans, so I am excited to give the crowd a show and upset both UCLA and USC!!! 

Bear Down and GO CATS!!!!
