New Rec Center flooded By Michelle Monroe ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT The Student Recreation Center’s expansion was closed on Sunday due to flooding. Heavy rainfall and construction most likely contributed to the flood, said Vincent House, an undecided junior and employee of the Pro Shop in the Rec Center. According to the Rec Center’s Web site, “The Expansion weight room, MAC gym and Outdoor Adventures will be closed until further notice due to a mechanical failure.” “It wasn’t the electrical room, it was the steam room, the basement,” said a representative from UA Facilities Management. “The electrical room is upstairs and the basement is where the mechanical stuff is, and it’s where the pumps are.” FLOOD, page 8

By Bethany Barnes ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

The Wildcat Running Club ran from Prescott to Mesa in the Ragnar Relay del Sol, which began Friday afternoon, continued overnight and ended Saturday afternoon. The club began running at 1 p.m. Friday and continued until 1:30 p.m. the next day. They finished ahead of ASU’s team, but the overall results will not be announced for a few weeks. The club’s team consisted of 12 runners and two drivers. Each runner ran three legs of the race, which varied in difficulty. Drivers were responsible for dropping off and picking up runners. The relay spanned 202 miles and included live music.

“It’s just fun to get out and run in new places, and it’s also fun to go through the experience with your friends,” said evolutionary biology junior Natasha Mazumdar, who also participated in Ragnar last year. The club had been preparing for the run since December and members were excited to participate, according to Kevin Maghran, an engineering management junior and vice president of the Wildcat Running Club. “I wanted to participate in Ragnar because it is pushing my body to its limit, I have never ran so far or much in a race,” said geosciences junior Christine Willmott . “Ragnar will also give me a chance to visit more of Arizona since I am

originally from Illinois.” The club did extensive training to prepare. According to Maghran, on Mondays, Wednesdays and weekends the team focused on long distance runs. On Tuesdays and Thursdays they worked on improving speed and form. Fridays the club tried to do unusual runs, such as running downtown, or up and down the stairs of all seven UA parking garages twice. Willmott said she and another running club member injured themselves in preparation for the race. “According to my doctor, I increased my mileage too fast and have tendinitis in my right ankle,” Willmott said. “I guess that’s a warning to novice runners.”

High-magnitude quake strikes Chile By Chris Kraul LOS ANGELES TIMES BOGOTA, Chile — Rescuers searched for survivors Sunday a day after one of the biggest earthquakes in recorded history rocked Chile, killing more than 700 people while leaving untold numbers missing and 2 million displaced, wounded or otherwise affected. The death toll jumped Sunday to 708, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet said, nearly doubling as rescue crews reached remote and badly damaged towns. The magnitude 8.8 quake, which hit before dawn Saturday, toppled buildings, buckled freeways and set off sirens thousands of miles

away as governments scrambled to protect coastal residents from the ensuing tsunami. Authorities lifted tsunami warnings Sunday after smallerthan-feared waves washed shores from Southern California to Hawaii and Japan. Looting broke out Sunday in some of the most heavily damaged areas of Chile, where residents were without water or electricity. Crowds overran supermarkets in the port city of Concepcion, which sustained widespread damage, and were making off with food, water and diapers but also television sets. CHILE, page 8

Former volunteers to talk expereinces dating back to ’60s By Laura Donovan ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

More than 100 former Peace Corps volunteers will talk with students about the program and the countries in which they served the at the UA Peace Corps fair on Tuesday. The volunteers, some of whom served in the 1960s and others more recently, have worked in more than 75 countries. “The goal is to teach university students and the Tucson community about countries where the Peace Corps serves,” said Richard Mora, a master’s student in Latin American studies and former El Salvador Peace Corps volunteer. March 1 through March 7 is Peace Corps Week. Alexandria Kassman, a 2009 UA alumna and current Azerbaijan Peace Corps volunteer, became interested in the Peace Corps after visiting the on-campus fair during her sophomore year. “After that I thought, ‘Oh my god, this is what I want to do, hands down,’” Kassman said. “I didn’t apply for anything else after graduation, Peace Corps was all I wanted to do. Then I went to the recruiter’s office and talked to them and they gave me literature to read about it to decide if it was for me. I just got more and more excited the more I read. I started the application process the summer before my senior year.” Kassman volunteers in the Teaching English as a Foreign Language program in Azerbaijan, where she has heat, basic amenities and Internet access through local Internet cafés.

News Tips

Kevin Wodd

Pharmacy freshman Let’s go streaking. I’m already sick. I don’t need another cold. You don’t want to run through the puddles? No. That’s not really my thing. So, even if you weren’t sick, you wouldn’t think about doing it? Streaking? No. It’s not really something I ever plan on doing. Have you ever witnessed a streaking incident? Yeah, actually. It was awkward. What happened? It was at my high school graduation. This kid grabbed his diploma, wasn’t wearing anything underneath and just ran away. It was pretty gross. If you were going to disrupt some sort of public ceremony, but you didn’t want to streak, what kind of disruption would you make? Uh, I don’t know. Just some sort of loud exit, I guess. Leaving abruptly. I don’t really try to upset people a lot. OK. If you didn’t have to be involved at all, what kind of major disruption would you like to witness? Some sort of large choreographed, orchestrated thing. I don’t really care what it is. Just something where a lot of people are involved. Have you seen those public freezing events where everyone freezes in one location for a few minutes? I’ve seen them on the Internet. Yeah, something like that would be cool. If you had to wear a costume around school for a day, what kind of costume would you wear? I’d probably be Daniel Day Lewis from “Gangs of New York.” His character is Bill the Butcher. He looks badass, and he carries around knives. It’s probably not a really safe costume for school, so I don’t know. Would you get really into the character, or would you just dress like him? Probably just dress like him. And, you’d go to your pharmacy classes… With blood-stained aprons and stuff. Is that fitting for a pharmacy class? No. Not at all. (Laughs)

Hello, stranger: The ups and downs of Chatroulette NEW YORK — A new Web sensation called Chatroulette feels like a throwback to the early 1990s, when online chat rooms brimmed with lonely strangers looking for meaningful connections, meaningless sex, or something in between. But this time, there’s a twist: Everyone on the site has a webcam. Chatroulette randomly links users with strangers who could be anywhere in the world. If you don’t like the person who pops up on the screen, just click “Next.”Repeat. The result can be unpredictable and

raw, like a slap in the face, but also refreshing, a peek into someone else’s life. It’s far from the sanitized worlds we create for ourselves on sites such as Facebook, where we mainly connect with friends, family and people with common interests. “Chatroulette is stark because it feels like television. It’s like sitting in front of the TV flipping channels, except the people are real,” says Hal Niedzviecki, author of “The Peep Diaries: How We’re Learning to Love Watching Ourselves

and Our Neighbors.” As for meaningful connections? Chatroulette is kind of like striking up a conversation with a person next to you on the bus or in a bar. You’ll probably never see him or her again, but that doesn’t mean the talk was worthless. “There is a great short story to be written about that,” Thompson says. “Someone meets the person they were meant to be with ... and they accidentally hit `Next,’ never to find them again.” — The Associated Press

Marie Osmond’s son dies

LOS ANGELES — Marie Osmond’s 18-yearold son Michael Blosil has died, the entertainer said Saturday. Osmond said in a statement through her publicist that her family is devastated by the “tragic loss.” She did not provide details on the death. Entertainment Tonight reported on its Web site that Blosil jumped to his death Friday night from a downtown Los Angeles apartment building. Officers responded to an Marie Osmond apparent suicide jump in the area, but the victim was not identified Saturday, Los Angeles Police Officer Gregory Baek said. “My family and I are devastated and in deep shock by the tragic loss of our dear Michael and ask that everyone respect our privacy during this difficult time,” Osmond said in the statement. Blosil reportedly left a note which referred to a lifelong battle with depression. In 2007, Osmond said Michael was treated at a rehabilitation facility, but she didn’t disclose the nature of his problem. Donny Osmond, Blosil’s uncle, told Entertainment Tonight: “Please pray for my sister and her family.” Michael is one of Osmond’s five adopted children. She also has three other children from two marriages. She divorced Brian Blosil in 2007 after two decades of marriage. She and her first husband Stephen Craig divorced in 1985. Osmond earned fame at age 13 with the hit song “Paper Roses,” and starred with her brother, Donny, on television’s “Donny and Marie Show” during the 1970s. They perform a musical variety show regularly at the Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. The hotel said Saturday’s performance was canceled. —The Associated Press

Last Wednesday, the Peace Corps Fellows Program showed a film called “The Devil Came on Horseback” in the Student Union Memorial Center’s Gallagher Theater to jumpstart the Peace Corps’ activities. “The film is about the tragedy in Darfur, and the idea of the Peace Corps is to bring world events here, at home, here in Tucson,” Mora said. The Peace Corps Fellows also visited local schools and organizations. “The fair itself will feature elaborate cultural displays of all the countries that we served in,” said Alyssa Bittenbender, president of the Peace Corps Fellows and a master’s student in public health. Bittenbender, who served as a health volunteer in Zambia from 2004-06, lived in a community without access to drinking water or electricity. “The Peace Corps for me was a life-defining experience,” Bittenbender said.“I’m in the public health program now because of it.” Bittenbender said there was a small clinic in her community but that resources were limited and the clinic was not able to do any surgeries. “It didn’t have a whole lot of medicine, so the clinic really couldn’t handle any kind of complication,” Bittenbender said. The Peace Corps Fellows offers a scholarship program for students, but they have to commit 1,000 hours of service in Tucson over two years. “That brings a social service component

Students participated in a forum to learn how to file for free financial aid and other types of loans and grants on Thursday. The Arizona Students’ Association and the Associated Students of the University of Arizona partnered to host two forums providing students with financial aid information. Students were taught about the amount of aid available to them, who qualifies for aid and how to apply for it. “Many (students) who are here on a merit scholarship think that (is) all they qualify for, or they think their family’s income isn’t low enough,” said Nicole Pasteur, an ASA director. “But you can qualify for multiple

students “the best crack at all the financial aid that is available.” Karen Lopez, a family studies freshman, said she heard about the forum from an e-mail sent by the Arizona Assurance Scholar program and, although this is her second year filing for financial aid, she needs more help. “The last time a secretary from my high school helped me and basically filled it out for me,” Lopez said. ASA and ASUA felt pressured to host this forum because the first deadline for filing for FASFA is March 1. They plan to host a similar forum March 25 to further discuss applying for grants and student loans. “A lot of times students just aren’t aware of how much aid is out there,” Pasteur said.

forms of financial aid.” The forum took place in the Manuel T. Pacheco Integrated Learning Center room 125 from 5 - 6 p.m. and then again from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. About 15 people were present during the first forum and only a handful showed up for the later meeting. Pasteur said they decided to host the forum less than a week ago, and, without having time to advertise, they did not not expecting many students to attend. ASUA President Chris Nagata was present at both meetings and said, despite a dismal turnout, the forum was useful. “Given our time constraints we were successful,” he said. Nagata also said it is important to provide useful information and give

ASUA primary elections, March 2 and 3

This Tuesday and Wednesday are the primary elections for the Associated Students of the University of Arizona.Voters can cast their ballots at www.asua. arizona.edu from 8 a.m. Tuesday to 8 p.m. Wednesday. Anyone enrolled as a student at the UA may cast one vote for each of the executive offices — president, administrative vice president and executive vice president. Each voter may vote for up to ten of the senatorial candidates. The 2010 election features fewer candidates than in the last few years, with only sixteen candidates for senate, one candidate for the office of president, one candidate for executive vice president, and two candidates for administrative vice president. Whatever the relative importance of this primary election, students should take the five minutes to cast their ballots for 10 senate candidates, one administrative vice presidential candidate and consider whether or not to cast a vote for the unopposed presidential and executive vice presidential candidates. Regardless of the strengths and weaknesses of ASUA, the body serves as the representative voice of the student body. These elected officials a represent the students on more serious topics, like recommendations regarding whether professors should carry guns on campus and how much money UA undergraduate and graduate students should pay in fees. If you want to be represented within your student governmental body, take a few minutes to vote either day. The system may not be perfect, but not casting a vote only makes it represent students less. The results of the general election will be announced at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Kiva Room of the Student Union Memorial Center. Senate debates will be held from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the Rincon room of SUMC and executive office debates will be held from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. Monday in the Ventana room of SUMC. General elections are from 8 a.m. Tuesday, March 9, to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 10. The results of the election and your elected student officials for 2011-12 will be announced at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, in the Kiva room of the Student Union.

ABOR tuition hearing today

According to the Arizona Board of Regents’ Notice of Public Hearing,“The Awill conduct a public, interactive hearing to hear testimony and comments from the public, students, and other interested parties regarding the level of tuition and mandatory student fees to be charged for resident and nonresident students at Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona for academic year 2010-2011. Comments at the tuition hearing will be heard on a first come, first served basis, rotating through participant sites.”Locations for the UA include the main campus in Harvill building room 211, at the Sierra Vista Campus in Public Meeting Room 203 and at the UA Science and Technology Park in building 9040, room 2270. All hearings will be held today from 5 to 7 p.m. In a Friday editorial, the Arizona Daily Star posed the question,“How much is a college education worth? That’s a question both the leaders of our state and the students who attend our three public universities need to answer.”These tuition hearings are in preparation for the ABOR meeting to approve tuition and fee prices for the upcoming academic year, which will take place next Monday, March 8, here at the UA. The state legislature, the administration of the UA and ABOR all have a difficult task in deciding how much of the recent budget shortfalls must be passed on to the students and families of students who attend Arizona universities. A 31 percent increase in tuition, like the one President Robert Shelton has recommended for in-state UA students, is a large increase to bear. But at least this hearing gives students and families a chance to present their opinions before the regents make their final tuition decisions one week from today.

MAILBAG Comments from dailywildcat.com On ‘Tucson offers sex health variety,’ Feb. 26

While I think this is important for female students to read, it isn’t really appropriate in a newspaper. There is no news angle and it only explains information that is available through a simple Google search. A waste of space, IMHO, although I’m sure the clinics were thrilled about the free advertising you just chalked up. Concerned Reader

On ‘Commentary: ’Cats, Wise just aren’t the same,’ Feb. 26

The streak is not over until the Selection Committee says it’s over. I’m prepared if it ends, but it hasn’t ended yet. Any fan that gives up on the ’Cats now is not a real fan. If you don’t stick with this team when things get bad, then you don’t deserve to call yourself a Wildcat. I never leave games early. I don’t leave football games until the final whistle. I don’t leave basketball games until the final buzzer. I don’t leave baseball games until the final out. The only time I’ve ever left a game early was the Holiday Bowl, and that was because my mom was with me and she wanted to leave, and I don’t argue with my mom. That one doesn’t count because of the outside circumstances. Otherwise, I don’t abandon any team. Any fan who does isn’t a real fan. Kevin W.

On ‘Animals should live freely,’ Feb. 26

I am saddened by the death of this dedicated and passionate animal worker. But we all must understand the fact that wild animals do not share the passion and love we have for them. This magnificent mammal has been plucked from his native habitat and required to perform for us in exchange for his food and care. This tragedy is not a freak accident, just like how the tiger attacks at the San Francisco Zoo were not freak accidents. There is no hidden meaning behind these attacks on humans. I read that the whale was acting strange. Well, yeah, how freakish it must be for

a wild, dominant predatory animal in its prime to be made to jump and spin for pieces of fish. This woman was killed because she interacted with an animal that views us as food. If you would like more answers, read “Welcome to the Zoo: A Whistle Blower’s Memoir,” by Lloyd Kraal. Nature Man

Letters to the editor

I am writing regarding the Arizona Daily Wildcat article in your Feb. 24 edition titled “Rillito Park ‘small but important’ piece of Tucson.” I was glad to see the attention given to such a historic part of Tucson’s heritage. However, I was very disappointed in your lack of fact-checking and poor research that was done in preparation for your article. I realize these are broad accusations, but there are several inaccurate references made in your article with regard to industry-standard terminology. The article reads, “the dilapidated scoreboard. The old-school odds board.” Once again, I am left to guess that you are actually referring to the “tote board,”which even the dictionary defines as “a large electronically operated board displaying statistics such as betting odds.”Your article later refers to “The betting register,” whereby you must really mean the “betting window,” also known as the“tote window.” Of course, there are ponies and ranch horses that are the “700-pound horses” that you refer to in your article; however, the average thoroughbred racehorse is at least 1000 pounds. A five-second Google search was all of the research needed to accurately report this fact. I am not sure what happened at the particular race that you were at, but I find it hard to believe that there was actually a shooting at the beginning of the race that you watched. I am referring to your article’s statement that reads“before the gunshot.” Once again, the reader is left to guess that you really are referring to the bell that is sounded before the gate opens. On a personal note, I was offended when your article stated,“Looking around at everyone who had invested in this opportunity by buying real snakeskin boots and felt-textured hats, I thought it would be a real shame if this ever came to pass.” While I applaud your intentions, I was personally offended that you would

refer to a Western style of dress as some sort of costume. Remember, we are in the Western part of the United States, and there is more of a functionality to the hats and boots as compared to some Eastern U.S. “fashion statement.” What is most outrageous about your article is the overall disregard for an entire program at our university; one that has existed here for 36 years. The UA website even states that “the Race Track Industry Program (RTIP) at the University of Arizona is the only program of its kind … The College of Agriculture placed the Race Track Industry Program in the Animal Science Department and so the Race Track Industry Program was established in 1974 with classes beginning in January.” Heather Shatz Animal sciences sophomore Although I graduated five years ago,I still follow UA athletics, as difficult as that may be at times. Football season ended funky, and this basketball season hasn’t turned out to be the greatest — BUT — it ain’t over yet. Don’t rush the field before the game is over (Nov. 21, 2009, Oregon anyone?), and don’t ever give up on your basketball team until the season is done. The last time I wrote to this paper, I was infuriated at the McKale Center Zona Zoo policy that was to be implemented and made some suggestions of my own. It’s nice to see that the Zoo has been consolidated to one side, but we’ll never kick the alumni out of their seats will we? There are two HUGE HOME games this week, and I better hear the vocal sixth man that our program is about. Let those under performing Southern California schools know that we are still in this thing. Yell at UCLA for a mediocre season, heckle (USC head coach) Kevin O’Neill and remind his players they’re not playing for anything, make fun of (UCLA guard) Michael Roll because I’m pretty sure he’s been playing since I was in school — remind the world this is McKale Center, and it’s OUR HOUSE. And if you can swing it, get to the Pacific 10 Conference tourney, make some noise, and let the team know we’re still supporting them — you all know what needs to happen to keep the STREAK alive. BEAR DOWN, there’ll be great things to come. T. Agle UA alumnus

dence or will? Why? Charging a fee for Facebook could also stimulate another acrid development: the privatization of the Internet. “Privatization?” you might ask. “But doesn’t pretty much everyone who uses the Internet pay for access through a private telecommunications company?”Yes, and so privatization already exists to a degree that people largely accept. What I’m talking about is an influence far more enmeshed. For years, cable and telecommunications companies have been proposing plans that would violate “net neutrality,” a concept grounded in allowing payers of equal rates to have equal access to unrestricted online content. Some plans have advocated allowing the highest-bidding corporation’s content to emerge most often in searches. Others would create a hierarchy of users determined by variable monthly fees — the more you pay, the more types of sites you can access, and at greater frequency.

It’s not a stretch to say the Internet has unparalleled hold over the way we think and interact with people. Common sense dictates that bottom-line-bent corporations — perhaps in the guise of politicians — will eventually push for ultimate control over this device. Facebook, already an advertisementladen means of gaining access to diverse forms of information, may provide a useful practice ground for a widespread takeover. Therefore, if and when Facebook decides to charge, do the responsible thing. Abandon ship. Delete your profile. Send messages first to the people you might otherwise lose contact with and get their phone numbers or e-mail addresses. Go on walks with these people. Invite them to the bar or the gym with your other friends and leave your wallets at home. Linger and tell jokes. Send the message, generally, that you don’t buy in. —Tom Knauer is a first-year law student. He can be reached at letters@wildcat.arizona.edu.

Don’t drink the jungle juice: Victim shaming does nothing to prevent future sexual assaults

I

f you have sex against your will, it’s rape. you say yes, think about this for a minute: Right? Well, not so fast. Should the fact that she willingly got herself In a column last Monday in the Daily into an advanced state of inebriation prevent her from complaining about anything that Princetonian, freshman Iulia Neagu argues that happened to her while she was in that state?” women who get too drunk to give clear consent may not deserve the right to press charges in It’s a common argument: if a girl gets drunk, cases of sexual assault. she’s “asking for it.” Whether the In describing the incident sex was consensual is always a point of contention in rape of a “friend” who “blamed cases. But being drunk should her partner and wanted him arrested,” Neagu poses the not prevent a woman from situation like this: “We all know being able to press charges that the more people drink, in cases of rape. By Neagu’s standard, people who are beat the less likely they are to make Anna Swenson up or robbed while drunk are wise decisions. It is common Opinions editor sense. Therefore, the girl consenting to that, too. Though willingly got herself into a state it is often alleged that girls only in which she could not act rationally.

believe that women only file rape charges out of regret, guilt or spite, the FBI reports that false reporting of rape accounts is only about 3 percent. By this standard, there are more false reports of grand theft auto and arson than rape. No matter what the state of the victim is when the alleged act occurred, a woman or a man should not be shamed by society for being sexually assaulted. According to a recent British study, 54 percent of women surveyed believed victims bear some responsibility for their rape. Those between 18 and 24 were especially likely to blame the victim. Elizabeth Harrison, the manager of one of the clinics that commissioned the study, said, “Women look at court cases and think, ‘she was drunk, she wore a short skirt, I don’t do that so it won’t happen to me.’ But rape can happen to anyone in any circumstances. It’s particularly worrying that younger women are more likely to hold people responsible for what happens to them.” Harrison went on to explain, “The 18 to 24 group were more likely to say that engaging in conversation in a bar or accepting a drink makes

them partially responsible. But it is this age group that are more likely to be going out doing that. We need to get the message out in schools that rape is never your fault.” Blaming the victims of sexual assault does little to encourage justice and appropriate punishment for rapists and those who commit sexual assault. Though her argument against female rape victims is shakier than a drunk girl on Cinco de Mayo, Neagu is right about one thing: “One thing is incontestable, however: It would have been better if this situation had not come up in the first place.” Getting drunk should not negate a rape allegation. Being knowledgeable about safety and clear about consent is important in any sexual encounter. But assigning blame to the victims of the sexual assaults does little to give the persons who committed those assaults due justice under law so that the perpetrator can’t commit the same assault again, whether on a drunk girl wearing a short skirt or not. —Anna Swenson is a sophomore majoring in English.

policebeat By Bridgette Doran Arizona Daily Wildcat

Man gets jumped, but story doesn’t jibe A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to a bus stop by the Optical Sciences building on Wednesday at 1:39 a.m. because a man reported he was assaulted. When the officer arrived to the bus stop, the man said he had been in the Main Library around 1 a.m. when he was asked to leave because he was not affiliated with the UA. The man said that once he left the library, he walked to the Circle K at Sixth Street and Cherry Avenue to buy a candy bar. After purchasing the candy bar, he started to walk back toward campus, hoping to get back into the library.  While the man was under the east side of the football stadium, he ran into four men he didn’t know. He reported that the men punched and kicked him repeatedly before jumping into a white Honda Accord. He complained of neck and groin pain, but there were no signs of injury. The man said that he was probably jumped because his brother had been in trouble with some people and he has been seen walking with his brother recently. The Tucson Fire Department arrived on scene to give the man medical attention and transported him to University Medical Center. Before leaving the bus stop for the hospital, the man told the officer he was heavily medicated for a bipolar disorder and seizures. He also said he currently lives on the streets. The UAPD officer followed up with the man once he was checked into UMC. The man then told the officer that it was three men that assaulted him, and they had jumped into a white Dodge Neon.  The officer asked him why the story was different than the first time. The man said it was because the men had switched cars. Employees at UMC told the officer that the victim was a regular patient at the hospital, and they would let the officer know any new information they got.  A victim’s rights form was issued to the man. He said that if the other men were found he would like to press charges.

Intoxicated woman calls cops for detox A UAPD officer arrived at the Coronado Residence Hall on Feb. 21 at 1:45 a.m. after an on-duty resident assistant reported a woman was vomiting outside the front entrance and then in the bathroom. The officer found the woman inside one of the bathrooms and could hear her inside throwing up. The woman opened the door to the bathroom and told the officer that she did not need any medical help.  When the officer saw that she had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, bad balance and coordination and smelled of alcohol, he read the woman her rights.  She told the officer that she’d had one cup of hard liquor earlier that night at the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house at 1011 N. Tyndall Ave. and the alcohol had been given to her by a man she didn’t know.  The woman told the officer that she was mentally and emotionally stable and would be fine.  She was cited and released for minor in possession in body and was escorted to her dorm room.  At 2:55 a.m. the woman called police and asked to be transported to UMC for detox. 

Obnoxious urinator charged with MIP A UAPD officer was on patrol Feb. 21 at 1 a.m. when he saw a man on the sidewalk in front of the Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall facing traffic and peeing into the street. The officer met with the man on the west side of the dorms after the man fled from where he was when he saw the officer. While the officer was talking to the man, UAPD dispatch got a call from an on-duty resident assistant saying there was a suspicious person trying to get into Manzanita-Mohave and was being argumentative with staff. The description matched the same one of the man who was peeing in public. A resident spoke with the officer and told him that he was in his room when he heard loud banging on the glass door beneath his window. The resident went to the door and told the man that he would have to use his CatCard to get in the west doors. As the man continued banging on the door with closed fists, he yelled at the resident that he did not have his CatCard and kept saying, “Let me in, you fucker!”  When the man realized the police were being called, he walked away.  He told officers that he had been drinking at an off-campus house, but would not say whom he was with or where the house was. The man was cited and released for minor in possession in body, criminal littering — urinating in public and disorderly conduct — unreasonable noise.

‘The First Person’ dreamlike, confusing By Christy Delehanty Arizona Daily Wildcat

Photo courtesy of Nintendo of America

You know in dreams how nothing makes sense, including the presentation of what’s there, but somehow the residual feeling you wake up with matters? Like something bigger turned a handful of quirky, discrete events — discussion of a lover’s hooves, meeting your 14-yearold self — into a solid story. In that way, Ali Smith’s collection of short fiction “The First Person and Other Stories” functions like a long night’s sleep. It’s not just that the stories are surreal, taking material from the perceptual flux of the everyday and subverting it, stretching the literal for all it’s worth, but also that they make meaning out of a distinct lack of meaning in a way that raises the question: “Well, OK, you found a baby in a shopping cart, a misdelivered package on your doorstep one sick day, but so what?” Smith’s use of a distinctive yet simple narrative voice forms her style absolutely and tags each story as her own, but also manages to confuse. A lack of quotation marks and an affinity for repetition — sometimes in the form of parallel structure, more often just in dialogue — make the stories unnecessarily hard to follow Photos cour tesy of Anch at points. or Books This occasional difficulty is only augmented by Smith’s British diction, her own brand of Ars Poetica, an spelling and word choice. However, the emphasis on narration and the occasional fact that the dialogue sounds surprisingly dissertation on rhetorical devices like “Harry Potter” at times and that talk themselves. of the pub briefly disorients the reader This self-consciousness only is a good sign; that the American reader strengthens the reader’s sense that can, for the most part, envision the stories what was written was strictly controlled, taking place in America speaks to the despite the stream-of-consciousness universality motif.

‘Spirit Tracks’ worthy addition to Zelda saga CBy Joe Dusbabek Arizona Daily Wildcat

“The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks” was ready to disappoint me. The only two “Legend of Zelda” games I’ve ever played were “Ocarina of Time” and “Twilight Princess.”Any seasoned Nintendo fan knows those two games were among the best of the series, so, upon deciding to review “Spirit Tracks” on the Nintendo DS, I was preparing for a let-down. With diminished graphics, sub-par sound and touch screen controls, I saw no way the DS version of “Zelda” could match up. Well, don’t worry about any of that.“Spirit Tracks” is a thoroughly enjoyable ride and a worthy addition to the “Legend of Zelda” pantheon. A few minor complaints before we get to the good stuff, though: The game is 25 hours long, but about five hours of this is backtracking and mindless fetch quests. Our resident hero Link has been transformed into a railway engineer, which means you are going to be spending a fair amount of time on a locomotive. Nintendo has taken a lot of liberties with the universe in this vein, so if you are a die-hard “Zelda” fan, this may turn you off to the game. Are all of the above complaints good with you? Good. Let’s move on. “Spirit Tracks” features your usual mix of exploration, plot development,

parading Princess Zelda around and solving mind-bending dungeon puzzles. The touch controls actually work well even though being able to use the directional buttons once in a while would be a welcome option. The combat is exciting, and Link’s relationship with Zelda is stronger than ever as she is an integral part of your combat and puzzle-solving. When you gain the ability to defeat enchanted suits of armor called Phantom Knights, the princess will gain the ability to use them via her ghost form. This often carries unique benefits such as having a fire-lit sword to clear the way or being able to ride on her shield. The combination makes for a different interface in terms of combat and is a welcome and creative addition to the series. During the game, you’ll spend most of your time fighting through a huge tower called the Spirit Tower. It is the key to the game’s gigantic plot, and I’d be remiss to spoil it here. Suffice it to say it is challenging, loads of fun and a compelling device for the game. The final third of the game revolves around this tower, and the conclusion will leave you breathless. For an unassuming little title on the Nintendo DS,“Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks” will surprise you in ways you can’t imagine. If you own a DS, be sure to pick it up. Enjoy the ride.

answers to your ques�ons about sex and rela�onships

In the United States, nearly half of all pregnancies are unintended.

Q

When is the earliest I can take a pregnancy test?

A. As soon as your period is late, you can take a pregnancy test and get reasonably accurate results. Some tests may be used before then, but the tradeoff is an increase in false-negatives – when a negative test result is shown, but conception has occurred. Home Pregnancy Tests (HPTs) work by screening for the presence of hCG, a hormone produced during pregnancy, in the urine. Though most women will produce enough hCG to yield an accurate test as soon as their period is late, waiting a week and taking the HPT first thing in the morning can further increase the accuracy of the result. The presence of hCG can also be determined through blood tests available through your health care provider. These tests, though more costly, have the benefit of determining if you are pregnant as soon as 6-8 days after ovulation. Pregnancy tests have been around for a very long time, but modern tests over the past 50 years have evolved to offer increasing convenience and accuracy. Interestingly enough, many of the prescientific techniques also used urine to determine pregnancy. The ancient Egyptians soaked wheat

and barley with urine, and if the seeds sprouted, the woman was considered pregnant. According to papyrus texts, if the barley grew it was an indication of a boy; sprouted wheat meant a girl was on the way. A 1963 research study found that the urine from pregnant women did in fact promote seed growth 70% of the time – perhaps due to increased estrogen levels – while urine from men and non-pregnant women did not, suggesting that the ancient Egyptians were probably on to something. HPTs are available from the Campus Health pharmacy for $5.99. While most can be up to 99% accurate when used correctly, improper use (failing to read or follow the instructions) can significantly drop their effectiveness. If you get a negative result, it’s probably a good idea to test yourself again a few days later. If your test is positive, you’ll want to make an appointment with your doctor right away to confirm the results. For more information on pregnancy testing or to discuss your options, contact Campus Health’s Women’s Health Clinic at 621-9202.

Va. Tech alerts parents to students’ underage drinking The Associated Press

At Virginia Polytechnic Institute, where tailgating and raucous apartment complex parties are timehonored rituals, university officials are turning increasingly to mom and dad to curb problem underage drinking. This semester, the school in Blacksburg,Va., began notifying parents when their under-21 students are found guilty of even minor alcohol violations such as getting caught with a beer in a dorm room. Although it’s common for colleges to alert parents of major alcohol offenses — or when a student faces suspension —Virginia Tech is part of a small but growing number sending letters home on minor ones. The debate about how much to involve parents in such cases is a balancing act for colleges and universities. Officials, who want to hold young adults accountable as they venture out on their own, are well aware that drinking is part of the college experience and also recognize potential allies in a generation of hands-on parents who can help when things go too far. “I think it helps students open up to parents,” said Steven Clarke, director of Virginia Tech’s College Alcohol Abuse Prevention Center.“And parents can be helpful in setting boundaries students might need.” The beefed-up parental notification policy is part of a broader strategy that includes alcoholeducation classes and a “party positive” program that encourages responsible drinking. The student reaction to the policy change, not surprisingly, has been less than enthusiastic. “If you have one beer in the dorm and you get caught, I don’t feel like parents should be notified,” said Erik Pryslak, a junior engineering major.“Now that we’re all in college, we’re all adults. It’s kind of

your responsibility to take care of yourself. If you want to make your parents aware you’re about to be kicked out of school, then it’s on you.” Studies show that students who say their parents would disapprove of them drinking are less likely to drink heavily once they get to college, said Toben Nelson, an assistant professor at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health who has studied campus drinking. At Virginia Tech, the school has operated on a “three strikes” system for years: Students get one strike for a minor alcohol violation and two for a major one — things like getting a DUI or vomiting all over a residence hall bathroom. Three strikes and a student is suspended for at least one semester. After a spate of alcohol-related deaths on college campuses, Congress, in the late 1990s, changed student privacy laws to lower barriers to parental notification in cases involving students under 21. Schools took a wide array of approaches in response. Virginia Tech started notifying parents of under-21 students after major alcohol offenses or when a student had accumulated two strikes with two minor ones. But some parents complained that because they had not been notified of minor offenses, they were in the dark until a student was suddenly facing suspension, said Edward Spencer, Virginia Tech’s vice president for student affairs. Some universities already have found success alerting parents earlier. The University at Albany, State University of New York has seen a decline in repeat offenders since it began notifying parents of minor alcohol violations four years ago, said Laurie Garafola, director of residential life. “I don’t send many second letters out to parents,” she said.

Water pumped for six hours; students alter exercise routines

A Rec Center employee called UA Facilities Management at 12:30 p.m. “The air wasn’t coming on and some of the machines and televisions weren’t turning on or working and the lights weren’t coming on,” House said. Approximately seven general maintenance mechanics spent six hours pumping water from the expansion’s basement. “Oh yeah, it was a lot of work,” the representative said. The damage could not be determined by press time. “I’d say (the water) was about five-and-a-half feet deep,” the representative said. “The room is probably about 10-by-20 feet.” The expansion was closed since opening at noon, but the original facilities remained open to the public. “People can still work out,” House said. “There

are ellipticals and treadmills, basketball courts, racquetball courts are open and (the) pool still open, table tennis and the track in the gym is open.” Some students went home after seeing the expansion was closed. “I went to the gym around 7 and there was a big sign that said ‘Closed,’ and the entire new part was closed so I went home,” said pre-engineering junior Oscar Galvan. Other students modified their work out routines. “Lots of people have been doing other stuff they might not normally do,” House said. “Lots of people using racquetball courts, lots of people using the track. You see lots of people leave, but lots of people are also trying different activities.” The estimated cost of damage and repairs could not be determined at press time because Rec Center officials could not be reached.

President to send troops to restore order, assist search

Police in armored vehicles sprayed looters with water cannons and made several arrests, mostly of young men. “The people are desperate and say the only way is to come get stuff for themselves,” Concepcion resident Patricio Martinez told reporters. “We have money to buy it, but the big stores are closed, so what are we supposed to do.” Bachelet, following an emergency meeting with her cabinet Sunday, announced she would send army troops into the Concepcion area, about 70 miles south of the quake’s offshore epicenter, to restore order and assist in recovering bodies and searching for survivors. She previously declared swaths of the country “catastrophe zones” and Sunday issued an emergency decree for the area that will be in force for 30 days. State television reported 350 people were killed in the coastal town of Constitucion, near the epicenter. With images of Haiti’s devastation from an earthquake last month still fresh, the world woke up to a new disaster and fears of another catastrophic toll. But the Chile quake’s epicenter was relatively deep, at 21.7 miles, and building codes are strict in a country that 50 years ago was struck by the biggest

T I P S

F O R

earthquake ever recorded: a magnitude 9.5. Nonetheless, Bachelet said in an address to the nation Saturday night that a million buildings had been damaged. And with television stations showing topsy-turvy structures, severed bridges and highways whose pavement looked as if it had been tilled by some giant farm machine, the death toll was expected to rise. Concepcion resident Alberto Rozas said his building began to shake and he grabbed his daughter in terror amid shattering glass and an ungodly roar. “It was awful,” said Rozas, who lives next to a 15-story apartment building that was reduced to rubble. “The only thing I did right was throw clothes on the floor so my daughter and I could escape without ruining our feet. But we’re still covered with cuts.” As a flurry of 30 aftershocks, some measuring greater than magnitude 6.0, continued to strike the region all day, Chile’s Interior Ministry said tsunami surges reaching heights of 10 feet hit the nation’s Juan Fernandez Islands, leaving three people dead and 13 missing. Memories of the tsunami that was unleashed on Southeast Asia and around the Indian Ocean five years ago haunted governments across the Pacific on Saturday.

DWSPORTS UA embraces a different March COMMENTARY BY Bryan Roy

I

Sports writer

t’s March 1, but don’t forget about this NCAA Tournament — that’s not why Sean Miller came to Tucson. Miller is building the mold, the process and the workflow to construct his own brand of basketball with his own guys. Those leftover from the previous regimes will soon be graduated, phased out or just unwelcome. “I’m not for everybody,”Miller said earlier this month.“As a coach, you … gotta’have some guys playing your way going good or bad. I don’t want a guy playing our way just when we’re winning.” Who knew how significant those words would hold up during the Bay Area trip against California and Stanford. Somewhere between Berkeley and Palo Alto, he decided to flip the switch. Momo Jones and Derrick Williams are his brand of players — freshmen trusted to close a Pacific 10 Conference road game rather than senior Nic Wise and junior Jamelle Horne. Jones banked a game-winning shot and scored a career-high 16 points. Williams added a smooth 24 points. In Wise’s situation, Miller said he’s carefully pacing the team’s most reliedon legs. Fine. “It’s worn on him,”Miller said after the loss at California.“I almost feel like we’ve asked him to do so much from start to finish, and when I watch him out there, he doesn’t quite have it.” But in Horne’s situation, the extremely gifted athlete still hasn’t found consistency — something Williams has had from the beginning. For the first time, both Williams and Kyryl Natyazhko played on the floor at the same time for a significant amount minutes last Thursday. Natyazhko, a true center, replaced Horne in one of the most athletic frontcourt tandems in the Pac-10. But that’s a compromise Miller must make to keep the big-picture mindset on his brand of basketball. Horne’s inconsistencies date back to his freshman season, entering school as a five-star recruit. His nickname last season was“Wildcard”because nobody knew what game face he would bring on any given night. For every night Horne grabbed double-digit rebounds, there’s another

night with double zeros across the line. Here’s his combined line from the weekend: 2-for-6 from the floor and six total rebounds in 42 minutes. That spans two games. After the Wildcats’ loss in Berkeley, I asked both Williams and Miller the same question: Is this team the same team that started 6-3 in the conference? No, not at all — and the first factor they both brought up was a lack of Kevin Parrom — a consensus diagnosis, realizing the loss of a hard-nosed rebounder.

They’re on the same page. And then the long-term talk emerged, as it has frequently during Arizona’s February struggles. “There’s no easy solution to our situation right now as much as just continuing to work,”Miller said.“This is a time that you’re able to learn a lot about your future and individual players. It sticks out.” The Wildcats finished February with a 2-5 record from wins against the Pac-10’s two worst teams: Oregon and Stanford. Miller figured mid-February would

bring peak performances and unleash the true potential of his team’s talent. Try the opposite. The shortest month of the year couldn’t end fast enough. The new and the old have gelled together long enough to realize Miller’s system is working. Pre-order your March 2011 Pac-10 Tournament tickets, headlined by Jones and Williams.

STANFORD, Calif. – UA freshman Momo Jones banked in a gamewinning, 15-foot jumper at the buzzer and scored a career-high 16 points, lifting Arizona to a 71-69 victory over Stanford on Saturday. Forward Derrick Williams led the Wildcats (14-14, 8-8 Pacific 10 Conference) with 24 points, making 8-for-10 shots from the field and 7-for-12 from the line . But his most important play came before Jones’ off-balance shot won the game. Williams blocked a shot by Stanford’s Jack Trotter, and Jones delivered the game-winner under heavy pressure, falling to the court as his shot banked home. Williams and Jones were also aided by fellow freshman Solomon Hill, who had nine points and seven rebounds for Arizona. Stanford forward Landry Fields, the Pac-10’s leading scorer, had 24 points for Stanford (13-16, 7-10), while sophomore Jeremy Green scored 15 and guard Jarrett Mann tallied a career-high 13. With veterans Nic Wise and Jamelle Horne struggling — they combined for just 12 points, seven rebounds and one assist — it was the freshmen that brought Arizona back. Stanford led by as many as nine points midway through the second half, but Arizona rallied and tied the score 64-64 as Williams whipped a pass to Hill for an inside basket with 4:10 left. Williams made 1-for-2 free throws with 30 seconds left, tying the game again at 69 before Jones hit the shot that brought the Wildcats back to .500.

Softball ’Cats swept in shortened series recruit dies By Michael Fitzsimmons ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT

By Nicole Dimtsios ARIZONA DAILY WILDCAT Arizona softball recruit Nadia Brianne Matthews , 16, died late Thursday night, the Orange County Register reported. According to the paper, the coroner said her death was a suicide by hanging. “We found out Friday morning,” said head coach Mike Candrea told the Daily Wildcat. “It’s such a blur … Nadia Brianne It’s been a bad dream for me. Matthews We’re deeply sorry and really feel badly for the family.” Matthews, who went by the name Bri and attended Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, Calif., had verbally committed to UA as a 2011 pitching recruit. “It was a tremendous loss for the game of softball,” Candrea said. “(She was) a bright young lady that had a bright future and a great talent. Obviously we were looking forward to her becoming a Wildcat. It was a very tragic weekend for us in that sense.” SOFTBALL, page 12

The weekend did not go as planned for the Arizona baseball team. Long Beach State University (3-3) came into Sancet Stadium and took both games from the Wildcats (3-2) in a rain-shortened series, winning 8-7 on Friday and 10-3 on Saturday. “Those are tough ones to lose. We were too sloppy,” said head coach Andy Lopez. “We looked a little bit young at times.” The series was drawn up to be a litmus test for Arizona, as the Dirtbags would bring a heightened level of competition after the Wildcats made easy work of Utah Valley University. Arizona had Friday’s game in its hands, carrying a 7-5 lead into the eighth inning when Lopez handed the ball to his closer, sophomore Bryce Bandilla. Bandilla allowed a leadoff walk to the first batter he faced in the eighth inning, a mistake that eventually ended in a score that cut the Arizona lead to one. With a chance to secure his first save of the season, Bandilla could not quiet the Dirtbags’ bats. LBSU put together a two-run ninth inning to complete its comeback and steal Game 1 of the series. “I didn’t locate balls. It’s my fault we lost,” Bandilla said. “I just didn’t pitch good tonight.” Although freshman pitcher Kurt Heyer was not as dominant on Friday as he was in his debut last weekend, he gave the Wildcats a chance to win in his 5 2/3 innings of work. The Dirtbags squared up on Heyer for 11 hits, but he left the game and a three-run lead to a Wildcat bullpen

that had been dominant prior to the LBSU series. Arizona’s offense amounted seven runs and 11 hits off of Dirtbags’ ace Jake Thompson. Lopez said output like that from a Friday night starter should be enough to win the game. “I would like to think that if we’re up by two in the eighth inning we should win,” Lopez said. “If you told me we’re going to get seven runs on a Friday night every Friday this year, I’d take that. We’ve got to do a better job at the end on a (bullpen) standpoint.” Sophomore Kyle Simon took the ball in Saturday’s game, but could not find a rhythm on the mound, struggling to find his control. Simon issued five walks to Dirtbag hitters and struck out just one. After going eight innings in his start last Saturday, Simon could not get through five against LBSU and suffered his first loss of the season. Arizona’s youth showed itself more than Lopez wanted to see this weekend. Freshman pitcher Nick Cunningham’s two balks on Friday led to a run for LBSU, and the Wildcats made three errors in Saturday’s loss, all on dropped balls by first basemen. Lopez has made Arizona’s youth no secret and, with a long schedule of baseball ahead, he expects plenty of growth to come with it.

No. 2 Cardinal kill ’Cats Savior needed

for UA bullpen

By Dan Kohler Arizona Daily Wildcat Playing competitively for two halves of basketball is important in any game, but it is absolutely necessary against the number No. 2 team in the nation. The Arizona women’s basketball team was unable to achieve that feat as it lost to No. 2 Stanford 75-48 on Saturday afternoon in McKale Center. Throughout the first half, the Wildcats (13-14, 6-10 Pacific 10 Conference) managed to hang on defensively to keep an offensive-minded Stanford (27-1, 16-0) team at bay. “I thought we were really physical in the first half,” said Arizona head coach Niya Butts. “I thought we were really aggressive. I thought our energy level was there. We contested shots, we closed out and we were effective.” At the tip, the Wildcats came out running right from the start with two quick baskets. Stanford returned the favor, orchestrating an 11-0 run over the next four minutes. Arizona managed to refocus its game and kept close for the rest of the half, going into the locker room down 32-27. Despite being down at the half, the Wildcats, who were doubled in rebounds by Stanford in the previous contest, trailed by only two boards. “I thought we played hard,” Butts said. “Everything that we want to see from our team, I thought we saw in the first half. The second half was a totally different story.” Coming out of the locker room, Stanford’s offense looked unstoppable. Playing a quick transition offense, the Cardinal managed to take Arizona for a 14-6 run to open play in the second half. Even with the absence of Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year candidate Rosalyn Gold-Onwude, who was injured in last week’s game against ASU, the Cardinal had no problem forcing their style of play on the Wildcats. Taking advantage of a tired Arizona defense, Stanford managed to stretch the lead to 20 with 7:29 left on the game clock. For the last four minutes of the game, it was obvious that Arizona’s comeback attempts were futile, but the Tucson crowd would not be quelled. Chants of Ash-ley Fra-zier were heard throughout McKale in honor of

the senior’s last collegiate home game. Fans gave rounds of applause to players, thanking them for the season. Arizona forward Ify Ibekwe, who posted her 38th career double-double by scoring 15 points and grabbing 12 rebounds, was proud of her team’s effort but said they just couldn’t get things going in the second half. “They just hit those shots, but we didn’t hang our heads. We just couldn’t find a way to get back in,” Ibekwe said. “We stopped attacking the basket, and I think we relied on our outside shot and jump shots, and we can’t do that.” Stanford center Jayne Appel recorded her 1,215th rebound in Saturday’s

contest, placing her ahead of basketball legend Lisa Leslie with the most career rebounds in the Pac-10. “I think it’s a tremendous accomplishment,” Appel said. “But I’ve said this all year, I want a national championship.” Stanford keeps getting closer and closer to its national championship dreams with only one loss on the season and a perfect record in the Pac10 conference. “They are very good basketball players. They’re a well-coached team and they play with a lot of poise,” Butts said. “That’s always going to be tough to beat.”

After sophomore reliever Bryce Bandilla blew Friday night’s game against Long Beach State University by allowing three runs on four hits in two innings, Arizona baseball head coach Andy Lopez put a sign outside of the clubhouse that reads “closer wanted.” The bullpen is young, but Lopez and his staff are searching for someone to step up and take the reigns as the closer. “We would like for (Bandilla) to be our closer but, you know, if he can’t handle that,” said Lopez. “He’ll get another shot or two, but we’re definitely in the market right now. If he wants it, he’ll take it. If not someone else will.” The 6-foot-4 lefty labored through 34 pitches in two innings, and his inability to get ahead in the count hurt his chances of closing out the game. “Any season, there’s going to be ups and downs,” Bandilla said, after blowing game one. “Tonight was definitely a down.” The other candidate out of the bullpen for the closer job is freshman Nick Cunningham, but he’s still only played five collegiate baseball games, a fact that showed as the right-hander committed two costly balks in the seventh inning of the Friday night 8-7 loss. Freshman Tyler Hale has pitched well in two appearances — five innings, five hits, three walks, two runs and six strikeouts — but is his 5-foot-9, 155-pound stature suitable for a closers role?

Wildcats lack aggression Lopez wants to see Arizona be the small ball type of team that thrives off of stolen bases, hit-and-runs and moving the runner over whenever possible, but the Wildcats were swinging for the fences against Long Beach State. “If we’re this young, I want us to be aggressive,” Lopez said. “I don’t

want to sit back and think we’re going to play long ball, because that’s probably not going to be our style this year.”

Refsnyder all over the diamond Before the season started, Lopez made it clear that there may be a different lineup on the field every game for the first month or so of the season, and freshman Robert Refsnyder has single-handedly proved that statement true. In two games this weekend, Refsnyder played third base, first base and left field, and he is also capable at right field and second base. In five games at three different positions, the Laguna Hills, Calif., native has proved his versitility, and has yet to make an error. His success has also translated to the plate. He went 4-for-8 with two RBIs and three runs scored this weekend. After five games, Refsnyder is ranked first on the team in on-base percentage (.542), second in batting average (.412) and fourth in hits.

Simon and Heyer humbled Arizona pitchers Kyle Simon and Kurt Heyer were two of the few constants heading into last weekend’s series against Long Beach State. Their combined 14 innings, two runs and 20 strikeouts against Utah Valley University had cemented their positions as the team’s top two pitchers. But the 19-year-old duo was hit hard against LBSU. In a combined 11 1/3 innings pitched, Simon and Heyer allowed eight runs on 17 hits and five walks. Heyer surrendered zero walks and still gave his team a chance to win, as he left the game with a three-run lead, but the 11 hits he allowed were less than impressive. Simon, on the other hand, struggled with control, walking five batters and throwing only 48 of his 95 pitches for strikes.

Women’s swim, dive falls short at Pac-10s By Derek Lawrence Arizona Daily Wildcat

The state of California hasn’t been kind to the UA women’s swim and dive team this year. Just over a month after being swept by Stanford and California in the Bay Area, UA finished in fourth place at the Pacific 10 Conference Championships in Long Beach, Calif., over the weekend. Arizona finished with 1,223.5 points, while Stanford — the No. 1 team in the nation — won the Pac10 with a score of 1,489. Finishing second and third were California and USC, respectively. “It’s not about wins and losses,” said coach Frank Busch. “The time scores are what are important to us at this point.” This trip to California started off promisingly with the UA tying for first place after the first day of competition. The team won the first event of the championships, the 200-yard medley relay, the only ‘A’ heats they were able to win. The Wildcats’ 200y medley relay team, featuring seniors Ana Agy, Justine Schluntz, Annie Chandler and junior Emma Darlington, finished with a time of 1:38.44. But the team only captured two wins after the opening relay win, both coming from sophomore Alyssa Anderson. She won the ‘B’ heat final of the 500y freestyle with a time of 4:42.13, as well as the ‘B’ heat of the 400y individual medley with a time of 4:12.90.

Like Anderson, other UA swimmers found success in the ‘B’ heats. Senior Jenny Forster finished as the runner-up to Anderson in the 400y with a time of 4:14.04. Forster also placed second in the ‘B’ heat of the 200y individual medley. Agy placed third in both the 100y and 200y backstroke — an event in which the UA will be a favorite at the NCAA championships with as many as three swimmers in the final heat. The best individual event for the UA was the 100y breaststroke, as the team had three of the top seven finishers, led by Chandler who placed third with a time of 1:00.59. “We had some impressive efforts in the finals,” Chandler said. In the relays, the UA had only one victory in the 200y medley, but they were still able to get some solid finishes. They had relay teams finish third in both the 400y medley and the 200y freestyle. “This is a very optimistic group of girls, so we will be fine,”Chandler said. Now with the Pac-10s behind them, the Wildcats will turn their full attention to the NCAA championships. The main preparation tactic for the team will be rest. “We will get back to Tucson and recover from Pac-10s and just work on the details to make our swimming sharp,”Agy said. Despite the disappointing finish at the Pac-10, the swimmers are as confident as ever about their national championship hopes. “We will be ready to race and have a good time,”Agy said.

Arizona Icecats’ sophomore forward Blake Richards sends a shot toward the ASU goaltender in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Sun Devils in the Tucson Convention Center on Saturday. For the fourth time this season, the Icecats were swept by ASU.

Icecats can’t avoid ASU sweep By Mike Schmitz Arizona Daily Wildcat Sporting their black road jerseys in front of a sold-out stadium at the Tucson Convention Center, the Arizona Icecats fought back against ASU on Saturday to send their 2009-10 season finale into overtime. ASU’s Dan Anderson scored 20 seconds into the overtime, fittingly summing up the type of year it had been for the UA club hockey team (12-18). “The team’s young. They don’t understand what it means to be doing this right now,” said senior defenseman Austin Capobianco of playing ASU. “I wish that nobody goes 0-8 versus ASU, let alone be the first team to do that in Icecat history, let alone be the senior and the captain of it.” After ending the season with a sweep at the hands of No. 11 ASU (25-8-3), the Icecats did in fact become the only team in the program’s 31-year history to go 0-8 against the Sun Devils, while becoming only the second team to finish with a losing record. Game 1 was competitive for the first 40 minutes as the Icecats got on the

board first. ASU tied things up 16:30 into the first period and ultimately scored the only goal of the second period to take a 2-1 lead heading into the third. The Icecats were still within arms reach until ASU found the back of the net 39 seconds into the period and held on to win 5-1. “It was nice getting out to a 1-0 lead, but we’ve got to build on that. A common theme when we play teams that are better than us is, we give up a goal, we give up another goal and it just snowballs on us,” said senior defenseman Zach Cherney.“We played right with them the first two periods, and it just snowballed on us quickly.” In Game 2, the Wildcats fought back from a 2-0 first-period deficit, thanks to a pair of goals from freshman Jeff Back and junior Jordan Schupan. ASU took a 3-2 lead 9:15 into the third period, but freshman forward Adam Treptow knotted things up with a power play goal with just over seven minutes remaining, sending the game to overtime. The full-capacity TCC crowd was electric, and the momentum appeared to be favoring the Icecats, but that

momentum was quickly snapped by Anderson’s heart-breaking overtime goal. Although the season series against ASU didn’t exactly end as the Icecats had hoped, the team showed resilience against a very good Sun Devil team that is headed to the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division I National Tournament. “You wanted to do the best you could, whether you were tired or not, whether the odds were against you or not,” said head coach Leo Golembiewski after Game 2. “We played with heart, we played with dignity. They showed the Icecats how much they respect the game of hockey.” As has been the case for the better part of five months, the Icecats fell short against ASU. The season full of injuries, lack of practice time and inconsistent play across the board is now in the books, and the Icecats finished with the most losses in the program’s history. Nineteen freshmen debuted this season, and although ASU got the best of the Icecats this time around, the building blocks for success are there. “We think we’ve got a core coming back that we can build on,” Golembiewski said.

Softball snags five wins in California

Tournament softball is the name of the game in the pre-conference season for the Wildcats. With multiple teams in the same location, the Cathedral City Classic gave No. 2 Arizona (12-1) the opportunity to rack up five quality wins in three days. And that’s exactly what head coach Mike Candrea wanted early in the season. “I would prefer (playing difficult teams) to playing teams that aren’t,”

Candrea said. “Obviously, I think you learn more about yourself against good competition. I think the big thing for us is offensively to get our young kids seeing good pitching so they know what they’re going to have to do come (Pacific 10 Conference) time.” Arizona softball remained a perfect 11-0 in tournament play so far this year.

Three of those wins came against ranked teams this weekend. It faced No. 21 Fresno State University, No. 25 Brigham Young University and Baylor University — previously ranked at No. 25 and currently with 22 votes in the ESPN.com/USA Softball Division I rankings. “I think after the weekend with Missouri we all knew we could play with the top teams, so it was a really good test for us,” said center fielder Lauren Schutzler. “I think that really helped us this weekend because we did really well.” Although their schedule had to be rearranged due to poor weather, the Wildcats were able to stay focused throughout the weekend and complete all of their scheduled games. Freshman pitcher Kenzie Fowler once again proved her worth by extending her record to 10-0. She appeared in every game this weekend, starting four. “I thought Kenzie did a very good job,” Candrea said. “She had to get in some tough games and I thought performed quite well. In (Sunday’s) last game she got the save, and I’m real pleased at where she’s at.” In the first two games, Fowler held both BYU and Fresno State scoreless. Both games were run-ruled — UA won 11-0 against BYU and 8-0 facing Fresno State — and ended in five innings. The closest call for the Wildcats came in the first game, a Sunday 3-2 win against Baylor. In a late scare, the Bears were able to put up two runs in the bottom half of the sixth inning to close in on Arizona’s 3-0 lead, which had come off the bats of Schutzler and left fielder Brittany Lastrapes. Baylor closed in on the lead off a solo jack by Dani Leal in the top of the sixth inning. Two singles and a walk loaded the bases, and a sacrifice fly put the Bears within one. Fowler, however, struck out Bree Hanafin to end the inning. “(The pitchers) kept us in the game, and we really didn’t have any big innings against us,” Lastrapes said. “It felt nice behind them.” The top of the order led the Wildcat offense with a combined 23 hits and seven RBIs on the weekend. “The top of our order did really well, I thought. Lastrapes, Schutzler and (K’Lee) Arredondo did a good job of setting the table and getting on base,” Candrea said.

Quick Hits Tennis teams exit tough road trip with mixed results

Even traveling had its problems for the men’s tennis team this weekend. After losses on Friday and Saturday against Intercollegiate Tennis Association No. 32 Texas Tech (8-1) and No. 49 University of Denver (8-1), respectively, the No. 25 Wildcats (6-2) were faced with a long trip back home. A delayed flight from Lubbock, Texas, and a missed connecting flight from Dallas to Tucson forced the team to fly into Phoenix. The men then had to rent vans and drive back home, extending their trek by five hours. After everything that happened, they were just glad to be back. Against Texas Tech on Friday, UA couldn’t pull out a win in a close 4-3 loss. “Losing to Texas Tech, they’re a really good team, and they should be top-25 soon,” said men’s head coach Tad Berkowitz. “We had our chances, and it’s always a little more challenging to beat good teams on the road.” The doubles point was won with a 9-7 score on Court 1 by junior Borja Malo and senior Pat Metham, with senior Ravid Hazi and junior Geoff Embry upsetting the No. 16-ranked doubles team in the country 9-8 (7-5). The points didn’t swing the Wildcats’ way in singles though, where they dropped four of their six matches. On Court 5, Embry defeated Vitor Manzini 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) and on Court 6, Metham was victorious over Raphael Pfister 4-6, 6-1, 7-6 (9-7) for Arizona’s only court wins. Coming back the next day against Denver, the Wildcats were upset again by a score of 4-3.

Women split matches against ranked BYU, Utah teams

In one match, struggles in doubles proved to be inconsequential. In another, they proved to be the beginning of a tough upset. The No. 50 Arizona women’s tennis team (8-2) dropped all three doubles matches against ITA No. 68 Brigham Young University (3-6), including one between the ITA No. 27-ranked doubles team of McCall Jones and Megan Price and the No. 42-ranked Wildcats’ team of sophomore Natasha Marks and freshman Alexandrina Naydenova. UA lost that particular match 8-6.

“We had no fire in the doubles, and it cost us,” said head coach Vicky Maes.“We got completely swept in no time.” But the focus and determination that Maes has been looking for this season came through in singles. With three matches won by UA that went into a third set, sophomore Sarah Landsman was the first to finish on court two with a 6-3, 6-4 win, but the win was clinched by senior Claire Rietsch. After dropping her first set, she won the next two sets for a final score of 4-6, 6-1, 6-2. “Kudos go to Claire Rietsch for her spirit and enthusiasm during that match,” Maes said. “She showed the emotion we crave to see from the team at all times.” — Nathan Comerford

Gymcats fall into second place

The Arizona gymnastics team competed in its first quad meet of the season at the University of Nebraska over the weekend. Arizona’s coaching staff wanted the Gymcats to raise the overall team score to a mid-195, but the team’s second-place finish with a score of 194.75 wasn’t far off. “It was a good meet, and the team competed well,” said head coach Bill Ryden. “Unfortunately we counted another fall on beam.” The falls on beam came from two of the Gymcats’ most reliable performers, Colleen Fisher and Britnie Jones. “We had a fall from Colleen Fisher and Britnie Jones, two girls I would never expect to fall,”Ryden said.“That just sort of caught us off guard.” The Gymcats had a rough start to the meet, with an overall score of 48.6 during the floor routine. When it comes to the first event of a meet the judges are very tight with their scoring, said Ryden. The tournament atmosphere provided a new experience for Arizona, who had only competed against single teams prior to the weekend. “It was a much more fun competition. There was action going on everywhere,” Ryden said. “There was a lot less dead time, a lot less waiting around.You can’t alternate performers when there are four teams.” — Kevin Nadakal

Arizona tees off By Alex Williams Arizona Daily Wildcat

Paradise wasn’t kind to the Arizona men’s golf team, which will attempt to avoid a repeat of last week in Hawaii as play begins in the Braveheart Classic, a two-day, 54-hole event hosted by the University of California, Riverside. After having four of their five golfers finish the John A. Burns Intercollegiate, UA’s most recent tournament, the Wildcats will look to rebound as play begins with 36 holes today in Beaumont, Calif. “(Last week) was just one of those tournaments for us … a couple missed breaks here and there and a few missed short putts, and it adds up when you have five guys not playing up to their potential,”said junior Tarquin MacManus. “We’re just going week to week and doing what we do and things will come around.” MacManus, who finished the Burns Intercollegiate in a tie for 43rd, has posted only one top-10 finish this season after recording five such finishes during the 2008-09 season. Arizona also needs a bounce-back performance from junior Rich Saferian, who landed a tie for 36th in Hawaii, only two weeks after from an individual victory in the Arizona Intercollegiate — one of two home events for the Wildcats this season. Arizona is the only Pacific 10 Conference team in the tournament. Play begins with an 8:45 a.m. shotgun start scheduled for Monday and a 9 a.m. shotgun start scheduled for Tuesday.

W-golf rides into Bruin Wave Invitational

The Arizona women’s golf team has its sights set on another high finish as play begins in the Bruin Wave Invitational, a three-day event cohosted by Pepperdine and UCLA. Led by sophomore Margarita Ramos, UA aims to continue its streak of six consecutive top-10 finishes, which includes three top-3 finishes. The only Pacific 10 Conference team not participating in the tournament is California, so the Wildcats will get a glimpse of what the field will look like for next month’s Pac-10 Championships held in Eugene, Ore.

’Cats climb high at Mt. Pacs By Galo Mejia Arizona Daily Wildcat While the Arizona track and field team was confident heading into the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championship in Seattle, Wash., last weekend, the men’s team was hampered by hamstring injuries, finishing in fifth place. While the men had a less-thandesirable finish, the women’s team placed third, and head coach Fred Harvey said he was pleased with the meet as a whole. “The guys had a couple of injuries, but everyone else was able to step up,”Harvey said.“We had about 10 personal records total this weekend. I’m extremely proud of everyone.” The injured athletes weren’t nearly as at ease with the finish. Sophomore Chris McSwain

was 10 meters into the 60-meter preliminaries when his hamstring cramped and gave out. The injury would eventually take him out of his 200m race, one that he was seeded to win. “I’m highly upset,” McSwain said. “We were 10 points out of third and I would have been able to get at least 15. I was supposed to put up points, but I ended up having to watch. I couldn’t do anything to help the team.” In addition to McSwain, redshirt freshman Nico Reaves injured himself during the men’s 400m preliminaries and wasn’t able to finish the race. The injury broke his season streak that saw him reach a new personal record at every meet. The women’s team, however, was able to stay healthy and score 109 points for third place. Senior Liz Patterson, who was seeded first in the women’s

high jump and was the Mt. Pac Champion last year, finished as the runner-up to freshman Brigetta Barrett. “It was just an off day. I had too many misses,” Patterson said. “It’s a bittersweet feeling. This was my last Mt. Pac, but people all around were stepping up. This is the highest we’ve ever placed since I’ve been here.”

Sprint finish

• Junior LaTisha Holden won the women’s 60-meter and improved her national ranking to 12th place. • The women’s 4x400m relay team came in second and provisionally qualified for nationals. • Senior Luis Rivera-Morales came in first in the men’s long jump and second in the men’s high jump. He also broke his prior school record and set the Mexican indoor national record.
