It was a great Homecoming Weekend with the GymCats! The team spent our weekend with two recruits while catching up with several alumni. It was great seeing so many of the alumni back in the gym and at our team tailgate. They all look great and are doing well.


The team, along with the recruits, all enjoyed an excellent dinner at Firecracker on Friday night and we satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth with some Cold Stone afterwards. It was an early night after that, since the team had to get up for 8 a.m. weights the next morning. After weights, Sarah, Miranda and I took the recruits to Caf?© Bistro in the student union for a caffeine-fueled “pick-me-up.” Then we caught the last part of the Homecoming parade and headed off to a delicious team tailgate before the game.


 A new era began for Wildcat football that day with a huge upset over the Cal Bears. Go Wildcats!!  We all went to dinner that night at Pinnacle Peak and got to know the recruits a little more. Afterwards, we caught the stunt show and finished off the weekend with a movie at Jamie Holton’s house. Overall, the team had a blast with the recruits. I personally was really sad to see my old teammate go and I hope she decides to make Arizona her home for her collegiate career.


I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for the ’07 season to start. All the returnees have improved since last year and the freshman have stepped it up and are ready to contribute to the team. Jamie Custer was finally cleared last week from her mono and is ready to stop sleeping and start practicing. The team continues to show improvement every day, focusing on the tasks at hand as we work towards the first inner-squad on December 1!    


Check back with us next week as one of the other GymCats will update you on our progress! And if you have any questions or comments, please send them to us at
