Arizona, which has been picked to finish fourth in the Pacific-10 Conference and is ranked No. 17 nationally, opens the season at home with the Four Points University Plaza Wildcat Classic Sept. 1-3. Arizona hosts Winthrop for a 10 a.m. match on Friday, Sept. 2, followed by a 7 p.m. match-up against No. 20 Georgia Tech that same night.
The Wildcats return five starters from last year’s squad that advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, including senior All-America candidates Kim Glass, Bre Ladd and Jennifer Abernathy.
