The University of Arizona softball team, defending Pac-10 champion, plays host along with Pima Community College, to a six-team fall exhibition tournament this weekend on both campuses.

Ten games among 15 will be played at the Wildcats' home field, Rita Hillenbrand Memorial Stadium, including five contests featuring Arizona -- one on Friday, and two 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 said early indications are that the 2006 Wildcats will have a strong starting nucleus and solid pitching led by three-time All-American Alicia Hollowell. Two-time All-American outfielders Caitlin Lowe (junior) and Autumn Champion (senior), plus '05 first-teamer Kristie Fox, the Cats' junior shortstop, also are back. Other returning letterwinners include sophomore Callista Balko, senior pitcher Leslie Wolfe, sophomore pitcher Taryne Mowatt and sophomore outfielder Adrienne Acton.

Arizona opens the 2006 season Feb. 10 in Phoenix at the Kajikawa Tournament.
