TUCSON, Ariz. ?- Fans can get their first glimpse of the defending NCAA Champion Arizona softball team this weekend at Hillenbrand Stadium, as the Wildcats co-host the Arizona Fall Tournament.

Ten of the 15 scheduled games will be played at the Wildcats' home field, Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium, including five contests featuring Arizona -- one on Friday, with a pair of games both on Saturday and Sunday.

UA's team has been working out for several weeks in fall training, and highlights its offseason workouts with the tournament against top area junior college competition and Division I affiliate New Mexico.

Head coach Mike Candrea will have all position starters, with the exception of Autumn Champion, returning for the 2007 season.  In addition to the 11 returning letterwinners, the Wildcats expect to see significant contributions from a number of newcomers, including pitcher Amanda Williams, shortstop/utility K’Lee Arredondo, catcher/third baseman Stacie Chambers and third baseman/pitcher Sarah Akamine.

All games are free to the public, and parking is free from 5 p.m. on Friday through the end of the weekend.

Arizona’s fall season will culminate on Saturday, Oct. 28, with the Alumni Game.  The current Wildcats will take on their predecessors at noon within the friendly confines of Hillenbrand Stadium.
