Drinking rate declines at UA ALISON DORF Arizona Daily Wildcat
Although the UA student population reached an alltime high last semester, alcohol consumption rates have decreased significantly. Results from the Annual Health and Wellness survey conducted by Campus Health Service in 2012 suggest that on average, students are drinking less. The survey has been distributed to a random selection of students between February and March every year since 1992, according to David Salafsky, director of Health Promotion and Preventive Services at Campus Health Service. Last year’s survey reached more than 2,000 students. Students seem to be getting smarter about their drinking, Salafsky said. The average number of alcoholic drinks consumed per week has significantly decreased, from 7.6 drinks in 2002 to 4.5 drinks in 2012, according to survey results. The amount of frequent heavy episodic drinking —five or more drinks in one sitting, six or more times in the past two weeks — has decreased from 13.5 in 2002 to 6.1 KEDI XIA/ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT
in 2012. Results also showed an increase in the number of students who have not drunk alcohol in the past 30 days and students who set a limit on the number of drinks they will have. One factor that could have contributed to the decrease is the growing number of alcohol education programs. HPPS offers several programs for alcohol education, including Student Health Alcohol Drug Education and Brief Alcohol Screening and Intervention for College Students. But recently, CHS has worked to promote alcohol awareness with a less traditional approach. In 2010, Spencer Gorin, health educator for HPPS, developed and began facilitating a new program called the Buzz. Since then, Gorin has been visiting residence halls and greek houses to give presentations on alcohol consumption. The feedback for the program has been great, Salafsky said. The program’s success can be largely attributed to the unconventional approach Gorin takes through interactive learning, games and dialogue. “As you can imagine, alcohol education presentations

ucked away in the modern and lavish Stevie Eller Dance Theater, down a simple cement hallway and through a propped door, ordinary walls welcome visitors to the modest room that serves as a costume shop for the theater. However, there’s nothing ordinary about this place. “Well, it’s a theater setting, so you know everyone’s a little more relaxed than the average college worker,” said Jeremy M. Barney, the dance theater’s costume designer. “Open-minded’s the right word.” The team, or family, as they view themselves, is currently working on garments for the Premium Blend that will be held Feb. 14 to March 3 at the dance theater. “It’s so much work, I mean what goes into building a costume, it’s a lot of your head, your brainwork,” said Pablo Rodarte, a shop technician. Rodarte has been whirling to flamenco and Spanish dance for more than 40 years, as he danced professionally before teaching at the University of New Mexico. He has been working in the UA shop for two seasons now. “As a performer, I don’t think we have any idea of what goes behind the costumes that you’re wearing and what it takes to make them,” Rodarte said. “They call it building. It’s architecture.” Marty Pavatea, costume shop top hand, agreed that his past experiences in theater made for a smooth transition to behind the scenes. “Being exposed to performers .... they’re not normal people,” he said. “I don’t think a lot of us are normal either, so I think it kind of works.” Each garment is tailor-made and fitted specifically for its wearer, as the team measures every dancer at the beginning of the year. The shop then uses high-quality fabrics and professional sewing techniques to

ALISON DORF Arizona Daily Wildcat
Campus Health Service reached out to UA students on Wednesday through its latest event promoting healthy living. Various campus organizations gathered on the UA Mall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to host the New Year, New You event. The primary goal of the event was “to have fun and connect students to resources,” said Melanie Fleck, an outreach specialist for Health Promotion and Preventive Services and a coordinator for the event. “If their New Year’s resolution was to be healthier or to do better in school, it was providing those people from across campus that can help them reach those goals,” Fleck said. Booths were hosted by programs around campus such as Think Tank, Campus Recreation, SafeRide and the Arizona Students’ Association. Several of the booths engaged students through activities and prizes while providing tips on how to be successful in the new year. The UA Love Your Body program gave students paper slips with positive body image messages, according to Becca Robinson, a nutrition junior. “It’s definitely a positive experience … you get more comfortable with your body through it,” Robinson said. The Dean of Students’ booth promoted student safety and shared information about the resources available on campus for students. “We’re kind of a place to start, then they [Dean of Students] can show them where to go on campus for the
support they need so that they continue to be successful,” said Tricia Don, a coordinator for the Dean of Students office. Each booth gave out “event passports,” which students could carry with them during the event for a stamp at each table they visited. If students visited at least six exhibitors on the passport, they could then use it as a fastpass for a photo booth. The event also attracted students with a special performance by the National Danish Performance Team, a nonprofit organization that performs and offers workshops worldwide, according to Nanna Roende Rasmussen, a performer for the team. “We basically want to tell people about healthy living, and showing one way of doing sports and still having fun while doing it,” Rasmussen said. “We want to promote an active lifestyle.” The current team members were selected in February 2012, but have been doing gymnastics their whole lives, according to Rasmussen. Since September, the group has traveled to Africa and Asia, and it plans to be in the U.S. for a month before moving on to Latin America and Europe. The group’s performance caught the attention of many students who were passing by, including Parisa Eshrati, a psychology junior. Eshrati said the booths helped her with her goals for the new year, especially with learning about the available activities on campus. “I feel like they kind of cover all the topics for health … I think it was a good way to kind of collaborate all the different ideas for how to live better,” Eshrati said.

ROTC works on recruitment RYAN REVOCK Arizona Daily Wildcat
The UA is focusing on attracting local high school cadets to its ROTC program in an effort to boost Army program involvement. The UA Army Reserve Officers’ Training isn’t having any problems getting students involved; however, its goal of having 24 cadets become commissioned officers after graduation each year requires that approximately 40 new cadets join annually. The first-ever JROTC drill and ceremony competition was held outside the Student Union Memorial Center on Jan. 12 to showcase the university and the ROTC program and help attract local high school JROTC cadets. “This gives the cadets at those JROTC battalions an opportunity to see the campus, and also an opportunity for us to showcase the University of Arizona to those prospective students,” said Maj. Benjamin J. Walters, a professor of military science. There are six area high school JROTC programs aligned with the UA Army ROTC program, Walters said. The idea for this competition was brought to Walters a year and half ago by a cadre from one of the aligned JROTC programs. Walters placed the responsibility for the competition on his cadets. Cadet Amy Dodd, a senior studying political science, psychology and Russian and the
program’s public affairs officer, was heavily involved with the planning and execution of the competition. A few UA cadres and cadets observed another JROTC drill and ceremony competition before the UA’s competition to get an idea of how they are run, according to Dodd. Cadet Daniel Coffeen, a public health senior and the chief operations officer for the UA Army ROTC, was in charge of planning the competition. A team of 40 cadets helped put the UA competition together and a reserve drill sergeant unit provided the judges, according to Coffeen. A local Tucson Army recruiting company also helped with the event and with finding sponsors. “I went around and talked to most of the [JROTC] cadets and they seemed to be enjoying it, so they had a good time,” Dodd said. The UA Army ROTC program plans on making this competition an annual event and possibly bringing in even more JROTC programs next year, according to Walters. “I think it was a great event that we definitely need to continue with, not just as our responsibility as a university to give back to the community but also to bring exposure to the university and the Army,” Coffeen said. “So that some of the kids that are in the local high schools stay here in the Tucson area, we really gabriela diaz/arizona Daily Wildcat want to keep all those kids that graduate from Chief Operations Officer Daniel Coffeen and Public Affairs Officer Amy Dodd organized the first UA Army high school here in Tucson.” ROTC drill meet on Jan. 12, with the goal of attracting high school JROTC cadets.
Series helps celebrate program’s anniversary MAXWELL J. MANGOLD Arizona Daily Wildcat
A scholars series will help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the American Indian Studies program at the UA. Today marks the first part of this year’s four-part Vine Deloria Jr. Distinguished Indigenous Scholars series, the fifth event of its kind. Five years ago, the AIS program set out to memorialize a prominent American Indian scholar activist and UA professor by raising awareness of issues affecting the indigenous community. “[Deloria Jr. is] one of the forefathers of American Indian scholarship,” said Mark Blair, AIS graduate program coordinator, “so his name carries a lot of weight and he was integral in getting our program started.” Deloria Jr. is credited with helping establish the AIS master’s program at the UA in 1982, the first program at such a level in the U.S. “He was one of the first scholars to challenge academia and challenge the status quo when it comes to ethical and American Indian studies,” Blair added.

is a pretty hard sell to college students, and the traditional ways of doing it, through lectures and social norming, weren’t exciting students,” Gorin said. “I believe anyone that’s been lectured at for six or seven hours a day, the last thing they want to listen to is another lecture, especially on alcohol.” Gorin, who has 25 years of experience teaching students through play, says that play is the most natural way for people to learn. He describes the Buzz as a “fun, game-oriented, interactive experience.” “One part of the evaluation is changing an intent to drink,” Gorin said. Based on 21 presentations last year, 42 percent of moderate drinkers reported that after attending a Buzz presentation, they intended to drink less, and 80 percent of heavy drinkers said that after attending the presentation, they intended to change their drinking, according to Gorin. A heavy drinker is a man who consumes more than 14 drinks per

week or a woman who consumes more than seven, as defined by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, Gorin said. “We’re really reaching them [students] on much higher numbers than ever before, and I think it’s because of the format style,” Gorin said. Rebecca Archer, a speechlanguage pathology graduate student and former president of Alpha Phi Omega, a community service fraternity was required to take the Buzz as part of her resident assistant training for Maricopa Residence Hall. Archer said that she enjoyed the program so much, she decided to introduce it to Alpha Phi Omega. “I certainly learned a lot,” Archer said. For students who choose to drink, Salafsky advises that they make sure they have a designated driver, set a limit on the number of drinks they will consume in one night and eat something before going out. “My basic message is, if you are going to choose to do alcohol, make sure you do the alcohol and the alcohol doesn’t do you,” Gorin said.
Beyond the classroom, others believe that the public’s understanding of American Indians still leaves much to be desired. This lecture series, which consists of lectures from leading indigenous figures, aims to help resolve that problem. “It’s a platform to not only bring scholarship, but also awareness to the general public,” said Gavin A. Healey, an AIS doctoral student and coordinator for the event. The theme is “Unfinished Agendas: Indigenous Peoples in the 21st Century” and the four speakers will be, in order of appearance, Philip J. Deloria, Oren Lyons, Suzan Harjo and Thomas Holm. Coordinators left the theme open-ended so as not to limit speakers, who will present a “very candid insider view” on the history of indigenous rights, according to Healey. “We’ve set up a really strong speakers’ series,” he added. “I don’t think one will be better than the other. They will all be worth seeing no matter what walk of life you come from.” Healey said he is specifically excited to hear Deloria Jr.’s son, Phillip Deloria, tell personal tales of the
former UA professor from outside of his fabled public life. In the academic world, Deloria Jr. was one of the first to put pressure on governments by writing about injustices affecting American Indians in the ’50s and ’60s, according to Manley Begay, an AIS associate social scientist. “This struggle continues,” Begay added. “There are so many issues American Indians are contending with.” Begay believed to “maintain and strengthen” political sovereignty is at the forefront of the “unfinished agendas” list, but added that the list also covers sacred site, economic, land and water problems. Following Philip Deloria’s lecture today, Lyons speaks on Feb. 21, Harjo speaks on March 28 and Holm finishes the series on April 25. Each chapter of this series will be held at the Center For Creative Photography at 6 p.m. on its designated date. “We’ve set up a great list of speakers who will speak to a wide variety of issues and personal insight to their journey of where they started and where they are now,” Haley said.

make costumes, according to Barney. “It’s a lot of work and it’s really hectic,” said Kristen Wheeler, costume shop supervisor. After discussing with the choreographer, Barney sketches design concepts that fit their shared imagination. The family then designs, orders, creates mock-ups and adds corrections to fabrics and garments before crafting the finalized performance costumes. Even then, sometimes choreographers don’t approve of the outfits, meaning the costume team is back to square one. Wheeler, who’s worked in the shop for more than four years, said the shift from theater to dance costume design was “a little shocking.” “In theater most plays will have eight characters and in dance it’s like, ‘Oh, you’re doing a show with eight pieces and each show has 52 characters,’” she added. Though the scale of the operation surprised Wheeler, the transition from performing on-stage to working behind the scenes hasn’t knocked the family off-rhythm. “It’s all connected, really. We’re just on the other side,” Rodarte said. “We’re not performing, we’re making, we’re producing.”

ALL DRESSED UP, PLACES TO GO Junior Stephanie McIlroy uses presidential position to take TREND fashion club out of state, further into industry spotlight ERIN DESOTO Arizona Daily Wildcat
A junior Stephanie McIlroy is the new president of the TREND fashion club on campus. As a retailing and consumer science major, McIlroy is dedicated to giving business-minded individuals an outlet that could lead to a career in the fashion industry after graduation. While TREND has been on campus for five years, it has never been as innovative as it is under the direction of McIlroy. “TREND is proud to announce that we are attending the MAGIC tradeshow in Las Vegas,” McIlroy said. “MAGIC is the largest tradeshow in the U.S., which features fashion shows and
designer seminars about the latest trends in fashion.” The MAGIC tradeshow is the perfect opportunity for aspiring fashion students to get their feet wet. It’s also the ideal atmosphere to make connections that could prove invaluable for students such as McIlroy. As well as attending the MAGIC tradeshow, TREND will also participate in Women’s Wear in Nevada while in Las Vegas, where the club will be shadowing a professional buyer. It will tour the Zappos corporate headquarters while on the trip, as well. “It is TREND’s first year going outside of Arizona for a fashion event, and I am proud to have planned out this event with my co-chair Addi
Steinberg,” McIlroy said. For her first year as president, McIlroy has been making groundbreaking advances for her fellow fashionistas through her involvement in TREND — they were even able to take part in the Phoenix Fashion Week. So, what’s next for TREND? After the MAGIC Tradeshow in February, the club plans to participate in the Dillard’s fashion show. In an industry as competitive as fashion, TREND provides the networking and experience necessary to launch a career after graduation. “TREND is where business meets fashion,” McIlroy said. Interested students can email her for further information about the club at uatrend. email@example.com.

Birth control for men worth the pain DAVID WEISSMAN Arizona Daily Wildcat
new birth control method being tested in India has the potential to completely change birth control for men. The method involves an injection of polymer gel into the vas deferens (which is near the testicles, for those who haven’t taken a health class in a while), which not only blocks the sperm, but also kills any sperm that make it past the blockade. The procedure is much less invasive than a vasectomy and starts working almost immediately, while a vasectomy can take up to three months to clear out sperm. Though the thought of having needles anywhere near that area might seem terrifying at first, if the claims researchers are making about the method are true, it might be worth it. According to scientists currently doing clinical trials, the method, known as Vasalgel, is 100 percent effective and completely reversible. The polymer has been in clinical trials for years, and some patients have been using it for 15 years with no apparent negative side effects. In addition, a single treatment has been said to last for 10 years. The Parsemus Foundation, the non-profit behind the polymer, estimates that Vasalgel could be for sale in the U.S. by 2015. The company also aims to make Vasalgel affordable. While all of this sounds very promising, the question here is whether or not men would actually get the procedure. Even if the benefits live up to the hype, men might not be as likely to get a surgical procedure as they would be to use a condom. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine showed that men in the 18 to 24 age group only used condoms 44.9 percent of the time. And when it comes to casual sex, men 18 to 24 years old reported that they used condoms only 46.9 percent of the time. Of course, the situation changes when alcohol is involved. Another 2010 study published in the Journal of American College Health found that college-aged men said they were less likely to use a condom when drinking heavily, even though overall condom use rates were very similar to the findings in the other study. Should Vasalgel be accepted for use in the U.S., it could be a game-changer. Given what the data shows about condom use and its relationship to drinking, a reversible procedure like this would be well worthwhile, assuming men overcome the inevitable unease of having something injected into their penis. As we all know, heavy drinking and sex tend to go hand in hand with college students. If this procedure can reduce the rate of unwanted pregnancy while remaining relatively noninvasive, that’s good news for everyone. —David Weissman is a journalism junior.

Your views In response to “UA hip-hop minor should be embraced and applauded for cultural relevancy” (by Justin Hussong, Jan. 22): I think the criticism and mockery that this article tries to defend the hip-hop minor against is well deserved. Hip-hop is a fad that belongs in the streets, in nightclubs, on the radio, not in an academic department funded by student tuition payments and tax dollars. Just because knowledge is current and trendy doesn’t make it useful or meaningful. —Wait a minute! In response to “Downtown Tucson: dangerous money pit for all involved” (by Stephanie Zawada, Jan. 14): From the perspective of the majority of students at the UA (like the author’s), downtown is indeed, “sketchy” — after a certain hour of the day. It does have much to offer: the Rialto and Club Congress, Maynard’s and its farmer’s market, bars, fun shops, etc. That being said, bars don’t do much good unless a student is 21, which, let’s face it, most are not. Additionally, the lack of sanitation and total disregard for organization during this seemingly constant upheaval of pavement not only drives students and visitors away, but keeps them

And we all know the streetcar project is going to do little to increase student traffic there — whenever it actually starts, as the date for beginning operation has been pushed back again. Downtown Tucson is not a terrible place, but it is not fabulous or welcoming.

Hit and run driver meets her match
A University of Arizona Police Department officer was dispatched to UA parking lot 2243 in reference to a hit and run at 12:55 p.m. on Jan. 16. Upon arrival, police met with a man who said his van was struck in the parking lot on Jan. 11. The man hadn’t witnessed the collision, but said a coworker’s daughter had. According to the woman, after the collision the driver got out of her car, examined and photographed the damage and then left. The man notified police five days later, when he noticed a red Audi sedan in the parking lot with damage that matched the damage to his vehicle — the red sedan had a dent on the left corner of its rear bumper, while his van had a dent to the right rear above the bumper. The UAPD officer inspected both cars and confirmed that the damage was related. The officer photographed the damage to the cars. The man said he did not wish to pursue criminal charges against the woman, but left a written note on her windshield.
January 26 | 1:30pm At the A-Store at McKale
A UA student’s laptop was stolen from the Architecture building on Jan. 17 between 11 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. He had left his laptop unattended on a desk in an open third-floor classroom while he went to his class on the first floor. When he returned after class, the laptop was missing. Nearby students hadn’t seen anyone take the item or heard any information about it, and no evidence was found. The student valued his laptop, a silver HP Pavilion, at $800. He was unable to provide a serial number for his computer, but was told to contact UAPD when he could. There are currently no suspects or witnesses.
A picture is worth a thousand words
Someone damaged a ceiling tile and picture frame at Likins Residence Hall between Jan. 14 and Jan. 16. UAPD officers went to Likins at 9:19 a.m. on Jan. 17. There, police met with a community director who said the dorm had experienced several such incidents recently. On Jan. 14, a maintenance employee reported that a BB gun had damaged both a white ceiling tile and a men’s bathroom mirror. On Jan. 16, the director found that a glass panel over a picture frame had two holes, each about the size of a silver dollar. The painting wasn’t damaged and there was no estimate for the value of the damages. Photos were taken of the scenes and submitted to property and evidence. There are currently no suspects or witnesses.

‘White-out’ to test freshmAn bigs Kyle Johnson Arizona Daily Wildcat
xactly 370 days ago, Arizona forward Brandon Ashley and UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad battled in a high-profile basketball game. The jerseys they wore boasted their high schools’ colors, not the red and blue of Arizona or the powder blue and gold of UCLA that Ashley and Muhammad will respectively don tonight when they meet again at 7 p.m. in McKale Center. Ashley’s No. 3 Findlay Prep bested its rival No. 16 Bishop Gorman 73-61 in Las Vegas and limited Muhammad, the nation’s top recruit, to 19 points in a poor shooting night. The results of the high school clash, though, are eerily reminiscent of the way this college basketball season has played out. It’s hard to complain about a 16-1 start to the season for the Wildcats, and the vaunted recruiting class of Ashley, Grant Jerrett and Kaleb Tarczewski has played a big role in that record. Still, compared to the immediate on-court success of UCLA’s three freshman stars, the Arizona youngsters have been more or less disappointing. They’re not busts or flops and considering the UA’s surrounding talent, they’ve done exactly what’s required of them. However, they haven’t contributed anything more. At times, Ashley’s played like a top-level freshman. He put up 20 points and 10 rebounds against Long Beach State, scored 16 points and snagged 10 boards against East Tennessee State and is shooting 54 percent from the field. Tarczewski’s had two 13 rebound games this season and has avoided foul trouble well for a freshman big man. On the flip side, he’s also shooting 37 percent in Pac-12 play despite being 7-foot, and he went without a point or rebound in a marquee matchup with San Diego State. Out of the three, Jerrett’s been the most disappointing. His minutes are a reflection of that, as he’s played the least of the three with 17.9 minutes a game. His 37.8 percent shooting from distance isn’t too shabby,
tyler besh/arizona Daily Wildcat UA CENTER KALEB TARCZEWSKI has had some solid rebounding numbers this season, but has yet to put together a solid game against elite competition, like he will face against the Bruins tonight.
but he also hasn’t scored in three of the five Pac-12 games, although his six blocks against Oregon State were a nice reminder of his talent. A simple box score ignores the defensive and rebounding impact the added size has given the Wildcats. Arizona is fifth in the nation in rebounding margin and 79th in field goal percentage defense. The freshmen are pounding the glass and allowing the older players to take care of
the scoring. Against Arizona State, Ashley’s defense was part of the reason ASU forward Carrick Felix played miserably. Then again, Ashley only played 17 minutes in the game; Felix played all 40. Arizona has added a lot, especially compared to last year’s team. The big three just haven’t played like top-15 recruits. The underwhelming play of the freshmen frontcourt really comes to light with the Bruins in town. Muhammad and freshman
Jordan Adams are first and second on the Bruins in scoring, with 17.9 and 15.2 points per game, respectively. Point-forward Kyle Anderson is averaging 9.9 points, 9.1 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game. None of the three Arizona freshmen are averaging more than 7.8 points or 6.0 rebounds per game. “Shabazz [Muhammad] is warrior,” head coach Sean Miller said. “He plays like an older player. He lets the game come to him … He’s one of the best players we’ll play against and he’s continuing to improve on defense. He’s a great, great player.” The roles of Muhammad and the Arizona freshmen are in no ways the same, but through the first 17 games of the season, the Wildcat frontcourt has done nothing to garner glowing praise like that. They’ve just done the dirty work in the background. The Wildcats don’t need to get huge offensive production from the freshmen, though it wouldn’t hurt. They’re rebounding the ball well, but so is senior Solomon Hill, with his 5.4 rebounds per game. Their defensive contribution is also a huge give and take — the Wildcats are defending the interior much better this season, but teams are hitting 36.6 percent of their threes against the Wildcats. That puts them at 298th in the nation at defending the three; Arizona was No. 3 the last two seasons. Ashley’s on-ball defense against ASU’s Felix is exactly what Arizona needs from the freshmen, but not what it’s been getting consistently. Still, the freshmen are filling their roles. Findlay Prep beat Bishop Gorman last season because Ashley’s team was better than Muhammad’s. With what the Wildcats are getting from the frontcourt, Arizona has performed like one of the best teams in the nation. If it wants to be the best team in the nation, though, the freshman big men need to start showing why they were so heavily recruited in the first place. — Kyle Johnson is a journalism junior.

Arizona softball to see spike in Long-distance runners train exposure thanks to TV schedule minds, bodies for the season Scarlett Mccourt Arizona Daily Wildcat
kelsee becker/arizona Daily Wildcat LAST SEASON, the Wildcats did not appear on television once during the regular season. This year, with 10 television appearances on their schedule, Arizona head coach Mike Candrea believes that the exposure will “give more people a chance to see good softball.”
Wildcats to play 10 games this season on live TV James kelley Arizona Daily Wildcat
After not appearing on live television once during the 2011-12 regular season, Arizona softball will play 10 games on TV this season. Arizona softball’s presence on television has expanded from the Women’s College World Series to the Super Regionals, to the NCAA Regionals, and now to regular season games. “It’s great,” Arizona head coach Mike Candrea said. “I think that one of the reasons why our sport’s been able to grow the past few years is because of our exposure at the College World Series, and that’s gotten bigger and bigger.” Home games against Washington, Cal and ASU and road games at Utah, Oregon and Stanford will be broadcast, along with the entire UCLA series. “I’m definitely excited about that, because I think our sport needs more exposure,” sophomore shortstop Chelsea Suitos said. “We’re doing all this hard work; it’d be nice to be recognized for it.” Last season’s NCAA regional in Tucson was shown on ESPNU. Eight Arizona games will be shown on the Pac-12 Networks. “It’s really exciting. The Pac-12 channel is huge this year, for our season and for all sports,” senior pitcher Kenzie Fowler said. “I know personally I had to switch TV companies so I could get it … but it’s really exciting. It’s going to bring a lot of attention to our program and to the conference and I think that’s huge.” DirecTV loyalists can still see UA games, as the April
18 game against UCLA will be on ESPN2 and the April 19 Bruins game will be on ESPNU. “That’s always exciting, to have ESPN out here and to show what we do,” Fowler said. “They always give an inside look to the program and stuff that fans may not always see.” Fowler and Suitos said they were surprised that the Pac12 was rarely on TV, unlike the Big 12, Big Ten and SEC. “The Big 12 has their games on, and the SEC, so why not us?” Suitos said. Last season, eight of the nine Pac-12 softball teams made the NCAA tournament, five made it to Super Regionals and three to the Women’s College World Series. “So this is another step, and I think for the Pac-12 it’s great,” Candrea said. “Something that’s been a long time coming, a very good conference in softball and now hopefully we get a chance to get exposed from coast to coast and I think it’s nothing but good for us.” Candrea doesn’t think it will affect recruiting much, just that “it will definitely give more people a chance to see good softball.” “I think the bottom line is that it’s still performancebased, so the teams that are performing have a little heads up in recruiting,” Candrea said. “I think a big part of it for us is being able to tell the story of Pac-12 softball, because we’ve had such great history over the years, so I think it’s an opportunity for us to tell people a little more about the tradition. “And a lot of the kids that are at that age watching softball weren’t around 10 years ago, so it’s a great way to catch them up and kind of bridge the gap from the past to the present.”
ith the cross-country season completed and the competitive indoor season beginning, Arizona distance runners have been training rigorously. Runners Jen Bergman and Sam Macaluso have adjusted their bodies and lifestyles in order to be more successful. According to distance coach James Li, the runners’ workout is anywhere from 50 to 100 miles a week. Two to three times a week, the runners have double days, which means they have an early morning run to complement an afternoon workout. Bergman, a senior, was at her highest training level this season, running around 80 miles a week, an increase from her consistent 70 miles. “If someone had told me when I was a freshman in high school that I would be running 80 miles … I would’ve said, ‘No way,’” Bergman said. Bergman said that after coming to college, she learned JEN Bergman how to eat healthy from her teammates. Then when she moved into a house her sophomore year, Bergman began cooking more, rather than eating out. “I’ve never dieted before,” Bergman said. “I just try to eat healthy. But I try to avoid fast food for meals.” Along with eating right, Macaluso, a sophomore, said that getting enough sleep is one of the keys to recovering from an intense workout. Macaluso said he regularly gets to bed before 10 p.m. In order to do this, he takes advantage of any free time he has during the day to stay on top of assignments for classes. Runners also have other ways to recover physically from rigorous workouts. Bergman said that after a long run, they spend 10 minutes in an ice bath and that they receive massages every other week in order to prevent injuries. Li said that when he looks for a great distance runner, he looks for someone who is diligent, dedicated and willing to make the necessary sacrifices. “If you want to be a normal student and do what everyone does, then you’re not going to be runners,” Li said. “It’s that simple. Not everyone can be a great runner.” But the sacrifices were worth it for the races that made all the work pay off, Macaluso said. “There’s nothing that’s more rewarding than setting a personal best or having a good race,” Macaluso said. “That’s what keeps me running. It’s something that becomes almost addictive.”
