I guess I shouldn ' t complain, I ' m in the same boat as the 35,000 other students who attend this campus.

After over- coming a season of nuch adversity, which icluded losing four All- american teammates, he ladycats could inally breath a sigh of elief. lated and somewhat relieved. Those are probably apt descriptions of how the Arizona softball team felt last week in Columbus, Ga., after capturing its fourth national title in six years. For the Wildcats, who defeated No. 1 -ranked Washington 6-4 in the title game, it was the sheer joy of winning the college crown coupled with the knowledge that it had been a bumpy road to get there. " We faced a lot of adversity, " Arizona head coach Mike Candrea said. " But this group of young ladies were not going to be denied. " No. 2 UA (54-9) entered the 1996 season without four All-Americans from last year ' s national runner-up squad. Laura Espinoza and Amy Chellevold graduated, Leah Braatz was redshirting to give birth to her first baby and Leah O ' Brien was redshirting to compete this summer with the United States softball team at the Olympic Games in Atlanta. Top pitcher Nancy Evans had to take a medical redshirt to let a foot injury heal properly. Losing four Ail- Americans is not exactly a formula for success, but it was one that Candrea-who called this championship his most gratifying-found to work anyway. " It was probably not our geatest talent but our best team, " he said. In the end, it was the two remaining All-Americans who led the Wildcats to the promised land. Senior second baseman Jenny Dalton spent most of the College World Series perfecting her walk to first base- she was walked eight times in all. But for UA, she could have not picked a better time to reintroduce her home run trot. In the first inning against the Huskies, Dalton sent her 21st home run of the year out of Golden Park Stadium, and the Wildcats jumped to a 3-0 lead that streched to 6-0 by the bottom of the fourth. " Jenny was phenomenal, " Candrea said, " and it ' s only fitting because she is not only a great athlete, but a great person. " Two UA throwing errors in the fourth contributed to four UW runs, and the lead closed to 6-4. Then it was junior pitcher Carrie Dolan ' s turn to rise to the occasion. With no outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth inning, Dolan was facing the Huskies ' triple threat line-up of All-Americans. But she got Husky shortstop Tami Storseth to ground to third, second baseman Sara Pickering to strike out and catcher Jennifer Cline to pop out to catcher Lety Pineda. Inning over. Disaster averted. " Our experience definitely helped, " Candrea said. " The girls were very, very focused. It was their bike, and no one was going to take it away. " And it was their ' s to ride for another season.

Oi t Y e i Mexican Student Association YRBK: What is the purpose of Mex- ican Student Association (MSA)? Piatt: The main purpose is to foster Mexican Culture and to serve the community. It is a way for students from Mexico to keep in touch, to hold onto something familiar. YRBK: What are some of the com- munity services you do? Piatt: Every Thanksgiving we do- nate food to different families. Dur- ing Christmas, we traveled to Nogales and helped the Pequefios Hermanos Orphanage. We delivered presents to the kids and played bas- ketball with them. A couple of guys play the guitar, so we played for them and sang Christmas Carols. YRBK: Is there anything else MSA does? Piatt: This year we ' re trying to es- tablish a link with the business com- munity. We organized Mexican Culture Week, which included con- ferences with different businesses. Some of the speakers were Boris Kozolchyk from the School of Law, who held a conference on interna- tional law, and Felipe Galaz, who spoke on international trade rela- tions. To end the week, we held a dinner. Representatives from the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Mexican Counsel, the Business Coalition and other associations attended. YRBK: What do you like best about MSA? Piatt: It ' s a lot of fun. It provides a social aspect to helping the com- munity. We have weekly meetings but you can always find us hanging out together in the Mexican food restaurant of the Student Union.

Ron: The main goal is to bring to- gether those who enjoy playing pool and to promote the sport, as well as prepare pool players for the ACU-I tournaments. YRBK: What are your personal goals as President for the club? Ron: I would like to expand upon the playing knowledge of the game of pool. I like helping beginners to get started but it takes a lot of patience. YRBK: How do the members benefit from the association with the club? Ron: It promotes friendly competition and yet the members learn from one another, trading the tricks of the trade. YRBK: What sort of events does the club sponsor or participate in? Ron: We sponsored a pool tournament at Pinkies. They donated the prizes for the competitions and let us keep the proceeds from the pool tables. The club then used the profits to support other pool tournaments. We also participate in pool tournaments sponsored around town. The tourna- ments are not only for club members but those who are interested in the game of pool. The tournaments act as forums for those who enjoy the game and like the challenge of competition. YRBK: This is a relatively new club. What are the plans for the school year? Ron: We would like to see an interest in the game of pool from U of A students and expound upon that inter- est.

CL Qm KENPO KARATE CLUB YRBK: What would you say is the main purpose for your club? Mario: Our general purpose is individual excellence through experience. We work from simple and solid basics so when you ' re in the street you ' ll remember what you can do, not be stuck trying to remember thousands of techniques or forms. We practice techiniques in class. It ' s more than talking, we DO them. YRBK: How do you practice your techniques? Mario: First we concentrate on the mental aspect of defense- attitude, logic, basics and fitness. Attitude is trying to avoid the situation in the first place. Logic is what would be the most logical thing to do if you are in a bad situation. The basics revert to the simple techniques we use as a basis for our style. Then fitness is the time we spend working out. After we consider all the mental aspects we look at the physical aspects. They are forms, sets, self defense, and freestyle. Forms are more of the art part of martial arts. I tell my students to think of something they would be willing to fight for when they do their forms, their family, their freedom, whatever.. .it adds so much intensity to their forms. YRBK: There is more to this than just fighting! Would you say your style is more offensive or defensive? Mario: It ' s difficult to answer that. People get an " offensive " image of us, that we go around starting fights or try to get into fights. This would be a skewed view of our club and its members. It ' s safest to say that our club ' s theme is " if you can ' t get out of a fight, get into it.

Ryan: We tried to motivate students to recycle on campus. Also we educate them on why recycling is important. Also we discussed what sorts of recycling is out there, so we also informed club members. YRBK: What prompted you to join? Ryan: We were interested in recycling and we wanted to increase awareness about the environment. YRBK: What activities did you do to promote awareness? Alden: We did a " Polystyrene Demonstration " on the mall. We extracted all the polystyrene from the trash cans on campus. We filled around 20 bags with styrofoam that could have been recycled - if put in the correct place. It was a- mazing to see how much could have been recycled if people had just taken the time. Ryan: We also had a recycling fair for companies that participated actively in recycling. They were invited to display their companies ' environmental aspects on the UA mall. It was an opportunity to recognize the companies that do recycle. It was also a time to commend these companies for their efforts. YRBK: Do you think you were successful in your attempts to educate the students here? Alden: Definately! Not only were club members informed but also a lot of people in the community.

Both the loudness and the brightness were shocking. The Criminal Justice Society did several activities throughout the year to inform its members what career opportunities there were in the Criminal Justice field. Some of the speakers that were asked to share their experiences with students were with the F.B.I., the U.S. Marshalls, and the Tucson Police Department Forensic team. 3 K9 unit officer Dave French walks his partner Alex around to show how friendly his companion can be. 4 Officer Pat Mackin flew to the UA Mall with the spotlight on, afterward, he landed his helicopter on the lawn and answered student ' s questions. 5 Officers of the Undergraduate Society of Criminal Juctice: (left to right) B.P.A.C.

Robin: Since the field of International Law is a fairly new one, we bring in speakers to help students who want to find out about careers in this field. YRBK: How often do you bring these speakers in? Robin: Every other week we have a speaker come in. YRBK: Is there anything else the club does? Robin: We sponsor a debate team to go to the Jessup International Law Moot Court competition. The debate this year is about minority groups seceding from their countries. The question would bring up things like what is hapening right now with Bosnia and Canada. Other questions are about terrorism, rights for minorities, and secession. We have committees in charge of alternative law careers and study abroad programs. We also get together and do fun stuff, kind of a getaway from the pressures of law school. YRBK: So are most of the members of your club law students? Robin: Most of us are 2nd or 3rd year law students looking to go into some facet of international law. YRBK: You mentioned study abroad programs, what do you do with that? Robin: We have a direct exchange set up with a university in Monterey, Mexico and also we have an exchange program with a university in Puerto Rico.

INSURING THAT TEACHING ASSISTANTS RECEIVED THE BENEFITS AND MONEY THEY DESERVED AMONG OTHER VALIANT CAUSES THE GPSC FOUgfe THEIR RIGHTS 1 The Graduate and Professional Student Council was responsible for numerous things. The group, made up of elected officials from each college, shed some light on the inhumane treatment of Teaching Assistants. They worked to get TA ' s health benefits and more money. Representative David Gortler, from the college of Pharmacy, said " TA ' s across the country live below the poverty line and they don ' t get the benefits they deserve. In one case the TA ' s at Columbia University went on strike, refusing to give final grades to undergraduate students until they got the things they deserved. " Here David Gortler and Anita Bhappu look at some funding figures during a meeting. 2 The GPSC sponsers events as well as help control the funds of ASUA. One major event they sponser every year is the Student Showcase - a science fair of sorts. Before they can do any event lengthy planning sessions must be held. Here the reps look over and discuss their plan of action 3 The delegates are (first row) Kevin Casaus, Sam Vahie, Zoe Forester, Alex Sugiyama, Melinda Milander, David Gortler (second row) Dean Cooledge, Lisa Rashotte, Anita Bhappu, Mitzi Forbes, Melanie Ayers (third row) Melissa Goldsmith, Jed Brown, Francisco Bido, Gordon Zaft and David Hsiao. 4 The representatives of GPSC are all elected within their college of study. There is roughly one rep for every 400 people in the college. 5 The GPSC also hosts a Graduate student orientation during the first week of school. The only way to keep track of all their events is weekly meetings and committee gatherings. Photos courtesy of Daily Wildcat OlfiAhijtXUtM. BADMINTON CLUB YRBK: What kinds of activities, besides playing badminton, does the club do? Yuan: We do a lot of fundraising activities. Last year we participated in the Arizona Police Games, which took place in Tucson. We helped to sponsor the games, and we are going to do it again this year. They have several different activities, such as football and other sports; badminton isjust one of them. YRBK: Are all of the members advanced players, or are there a few rookies that play as well? Yuan: The players range from begin- ners to advanced, and there are a few casual players that just show up every once in a while. YRBK: How many members are there? Yuan: There are close to 25 members right now, we hope to get more though. YRBK: Is the club relatively new? Yuan: It ' s been around for quite a while, about three or four years. YRBK: How long have you been a member of the club? Yuan: This is my second year. YRBK: When you compete do you play against each other, or other intramural teams? Yuan: We hold club tournaments, and we participate in intramural tour- naments as well. YRBK: What do you see as major goals for the club? Yuan: The membership to the club is free, and there are no obligations. Our goal is to get as many students involved with the club as possible. Qi Ji 4U$tt J t4Ce c l BJ AMERICAN TAEKWONDO ASSOCIATION YRBK: What is the American Taekwondo Association (ATA)? Sandra: It ' s a world-wide association of martial artists. YRBK: How does this club differ from some of the other martial art groups that were on campus? Sandra: Well, I think one of the major differences between the ATA and other martial art groups was that the ATA is a world wide association with set forms, sparring rules and such. You could go to Brazil to an ATA school and learn the same things we ' re learning here at the U of A. YRBK: When and where do you have tournaments? Sandra: There are several different types of tournaments. We have bi- monthly regional tournaments in Phoenix. Then once a year we have Nationals in Las Vegas, Nevada and Worlds in Little Rock, Arkansas, where our Grand Master lives. YRBK: What do you think you have gained from being in this organization? Sandra: I have learned self-defense, self confidence in that I know how to protect myself if I need too. Our style has many different stepping stones to becoming higherbelts. This has been a good lesson to me in life and in taekwondo. You see the black belts and you think you ' ll never make it, that you could never do what they ' re doing. You have to take everything slowly, no one becomes an expert without work and perseverance. It doesn ' t matter what you ' re trying to accomplish, you can do anything if you don ' t give up. 0yf y o 4 Jj£ ip i sarizona BEAR DOWN THE CHEERLEADING CLUB AT THE U OF A WAS CREATED TO INSPIRE ATHLETES AND STUDENTS AT SPORTING EVENTS.

Perfecting their balance Stefanie Soto. Hyuk Kwon, Stephanie Kinsman, and Amy Kronick perform a stunt to the surprise and delight of the crowd. The squad worked a minimum of eight hours a week to create and improve their cheers, chant,s and stunts. Cheering can seem really simplistic but there is a lot of time involved with getting timing together and looking good. 3 " Gimme a name! " A squad member yells into the megaphone to make her voice carry over the stadium. Do you think it worked? Thank god for plastic ! Besides cheering for sporting events the squad did commercials, cheered for alumni events and made appearances 4 Squad members Stephanie Kinsman, Tiffany Gessel, Amy Cronick, Naomi Demsky, Stefanie Soto, Morani Sanders, Sven Sandeen, Corey Airhart, Ben VanBuskirk, Hyuk Kwon, Geoff Poer, Lawrence Murray, and Patrick Murray give their all to the crowd. It takes a lot of effort to get 55,000 people pumped up. Fortunately the U of A cheer squad was very good at their job! 5 Sprinting and tumbling their way onto the field, the cheerleaders begin the game with a spirited entrance. Leading the pack are Tiffany Gessel, Wilbur and Hyuk Kwon. Tiffany said she was a member of the squad because " I can be involved in school support and get to know people in the crowd. It can be challenging to pull stunts together and get the crowd excited and into the game. " Photos by Freeze Frame Photography. CUtduA+f HAWAII CLUB QiAct 6fd- Q mJ, YRBK: What does the Hawaii Club do? Grace: Mainly our purpose is to provide a basis of support to the students from Hawaii. YRBK: So are most of the students involved from Hawaii? Grace: Yes, well over half of the members. YRBK: How many members are there? Is it a fairly large group? Grace: There are forty dues-paying members. YRBK: What kinds of activities have you or will you put on? Grant: So far we ' ve held a picnic at Reid Park. It was just an opportu- nity for the members to come to- gether and have some fun. But our biggest event is the Luau, which will be held second semester. YRBK: What exactly is a Luau? Grant: It ' s a party " Hawaiian style! " Grace: It is not! YRBK: What is the purpose of a Luau? Grace: It ' s a celebration of the Ha- waiian culture. Back home (Ha- waii) it ' s a way to bring people to- gether to celebrate the tradtions, as well as the culture, with the ethnic foods and entertainment. YRBK: What other kinds of things do you have planned? Grace: We want to coordinate some activities with the Asian American Cultural Association and the Fili- pino American Student Association. One goal of ours is to promote inter- action between the different cul- tures. 0l£AfUjrf « 4 Streng " PLAN, ACTION, PROGRESS AND SUCCESS. THAT ' S OUR MOTTO. " WITH THAT IN MIND, IT ' S EASY TO SEE THAT THE AFRICAN- AMERICAN STUDENT ALLIANCE SHOWS ITS th IN NUMBERS l " Plan, action, progress and success; that ' s our motto, " says David Hodge, President of the African American Student Alliance, seen here with Dr. Omari, Advisor, and Efrain Velez, Jr., Vice-president, at the 13th Annual Welcoming Brunch for New and Returning Students. " Our goal for AASA is success in everything we do: success not only in numbers, but in intent, objectives, and following through. " 2 This year, AASA held its first ever basketball tournament and, according to Bakari Johnson, it was a smooth success. " It really brought people together, and showed organization within the club. Knowing that we accomplished our goal of putting together this tournament, and then following through, we can now try to build toward bigger and better things. " 3 AASA came together to march in the Homecoming ' 95 parade, and elected its own royalty, King Antonio Carr and Queen De ' Etta Barnes. Said Barnes, " We only make up 2% of the UA population, and the likelihood of an African- American being chosen as royalty is low, so it ' s up to AASA to represent us. " 4 A game of three-on-three takes a twist as two men go up for the rebound during the basketball tournament in November. The tournament lasted from eight in the morning until three in the afternoon, and the winners took home a trophy and $300. 5 During Black History Month, AASA will have a Black history quiz for it ' s members. Rhonda Johnson, part of the education committee, helps to research the historical accomplishments of African-Americans and presents them to the members at the meetings.

THE CLUB ALSO STROVE TO PROMOTE CULTURAL DIVERSITY. 1 The Ski and Snowboard club certainly wasn ' t short on fun! Pausing for a moment before hitting the slopes, the club prepares for the challenge the mountain presents. In this picture the group is in Breckenridge, Colorado over Thanksgiving break. 2 Of course after the hard day working on their technique, the club had to take some time to unwind and fuel their bodies for the next days hard work. Here, Anders Finstead, Toby Guttormson, D wight Hart and Keith Seddon, equipped with their smiles and full stomachs chill at the ski lodge. 3 Beer is an essential part of skiing... or at least an essential part of student trips. A definite common theme for this club is the fun they have sharing their common interest. 4 The club takes several trips each semester to various resorts in Colorado, Jackson Hole Wyoming and other, snowier places. The club worked hard to keep their costs down by taking buses to the ski areas they visit. They also got group and package rates which lowered the costs considerably. The members appeared happy before they boarded the bus, wonder what they looked like after the 15 hour trip to Colorado? 5 Club President: Jefferey Weinberg, Vice President: Da Ming C. Lee and Secretary: Tobias Guttormson put a lot of effort into getting the club together and off to various parts of the country. As shown here, it seems the members appreciated their hard work. I ' li 0 f + ifAtic 4 Art Clay works l)t 4 Ch f£ YRBK: What do you think the formal addition of the Art Clayworks club has done? Dean: The Art Clayworks club adds a creative flare to student organizations. YRBK: What is the club ' s purpose? Dean: The club has twenty-six members that come together in the united interest of ceramics. The club gives students a forum in which to exercise their creative powers through pottery and ceramics. YRBK: What else does the club do? Dean: Guest speakers from around the country are hosted by the club in an effort to widen their knowledge about clay works and it ' s style of art. We also have bi-annual ceram- ics sales in order to raise money for the club and its artists. YRBK: How does this benefit the club? Dean: The artist and the club split the profits from the art sales fifty-fifty. YRBK: Is it normal for an artisit to receive the money from their artwork this way? Dean: This kind of monetary arrangement is rather unusual Most of the time the gallery takes a sixty percent share to the artists ' forty percent share. The event allows the artists to gain positive exposure by displaying their works of creativity while earning a profit. The art pieces range from potentially factional pieces to abstract art forms.

One of the main purposes of the Cats ' n ' Cubs was to remember the children and their importance in our world. The members of the club also did several volunteer activities. One was working with the UMC Children ' s Research Center at a booth at the Tucson Mall. 3 Playing, a seemingly forgotten art on the busy UA campus, was perfected by Amy Sizer. Maybe the U of A could hire her to remind the student body? Having children was certainly a challenge for members in the club but it also had it ' s rewards. 4 The club participated in many different events from supporting the community to supporting each other. They were in the Homecoming Parade, had several picnics and regular meetings.

Jessica: The Student Pagan club provided a forum for discussion of issues related to nature based spirituality. YRBK: What did the club consider " nature based spirituality? " Jessica: Pagan nature based traditions include pre-Christian European, Celtic, Northern and pre- Judaic Middle Eastern traditions, such as Egyptian culture. YRBK: How did club members benefit from being a part of the club? Jessica: The discussions explore different idealogies. The members bring their own knowledge to the meetings as well as learn something from them through other ' s presentations. YRBK: Did the club seek speakers from the community? Jessica: The club did have guest speakers from time to time but we mainly drew from the members in the club to speak on a tradition they were familiar with. After the informative lecture we held a discussion. The members shared their knowledge for the purpose of exposing others to new ideas and cultures. YRBK: What were some of the topics of the lectures? Jessica: Some examples of the lectures were classical Greek and Roman religion, Celtic religions, and Afro-Carribbean religions. There were also workshops on Tarot ruines, herbalism and discussions of reincarnation, the nature of divinity and holiday celebrations. YRBK: How long has the club been active at the University? JESSICA: The club was created in the mid 1980 ' s and now consists of around thirty members. U + CA Archeology Club YRBK: What kind of activities does the group sponsor or participate in? Kristin: We visit local sites monthly, inform members of volunteer work available, and have archeologists from the University and contract archeology speak to us on their field experience. YRBK: As president, what do you see as major goals for the club? Kristin: We want to make people aware of available experience and the current state of archeology. We also want to encourage those interested in archeol- ogy to go out for new experiences, to always learn no matter where they go. And of course this always looks good on a resume. YRBK: What kinds of hands-on expe- rience have the members had? Kristin: Over spring break we went to Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. The ex- perience of the members vary. Some have done lab work, and many are undergrads without much experi- ence. YRBK: Is involvement in the club just a hobby, or is archeology in the future of most of the members? Kristin: Most members do want to go on, it ' s not just a hobby. They are looking for experiences and how to become involved. Most are serious about it. YRBK: How does archeology re- late to other disciplines, such as art, anthropology, etc? Kristin: Well, in England archeol- ogy is its own discipline, whereas here it is a sub-discipline of anthropology. Our focus is to look at material remains. But it is linked to almost any discipline: math, sta- tistics, astronomy, paleoclimatol- ogy, geology, almost anything. V TJ 0 A j X C THE ARCHERY CLUB WAS FORMED TO GIVE STUDENTS AND FACULTY THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN, TO ACQUIRE AND CULTIVATE THEIR ARCHERY SKILLS. RESURRECTED FROM THE CLUB GRAVEYARD IN 1992 BY FOUNDER MICHAEL SEDDON ALL OF THE MEMBERS WERE Aiwiin ORTiiE BULLSEYE 1 Using an Olympic style bow is Lillian Chen. Lillian was fairly new to archery. The club supplied all equipment and bought extra field passes at Precision Shooting Equiptment, where they practice, for new members. Founder Michael Seddon said " When I formed the club I wanted to make sure there was as little cost to members as possible. Therefore we had no club dues and tried to make it easy for them to try archery . " 2 A Compound bow, as pictured here with Flynn Haase, is more expensive and typically easier to use for long periods of time than a Traditional or Olympic style. Although the bow style used is based on personal preference, many hunters will use Compound because it uses a pulley system to make holding the bow in ready position easier3 The Archery Club: GingerPoole (President), Flynn Haase(Vice President), Michael Seddon (Founder), Rhonda Staggs, Roy Martin, Robert Norvelle, Lillian Chen and Lawrence Brady (Coach). Lawrence Brady has been coaching archery for many years and was the former UA archery team coach.4 All together now! The whole team prepares for a shot at their targets. Although they use different style bows, Compound, Olympic and Traditional (wooden arrows and wooden bows) the team practices tournament style archery. The team attends tournaments in Phoenix and Tucson with some degree of regularity and sometimes out of state also. 5 One of the nations top shooters Robert Norvelle participates here with the club members Flynn and Rhonda. Robert will be participating in the para-olympics in 1996 in Atlanta, 3 weeks after the Olympic Games.

HOLDING MANY PHILANTHRO- PIES THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AND MAINTAIN- ING EXCELLENT GRADE STATUS WERE OF UT- MOST IMPORTANCE. 1 Mortar Board consisted of about 20 members who were honored for the academic excellence. These seniors all had outstanding grade point averages as well as concerns with the community. The club has many different philan- thropic events through out the year. Here, Graciela Vazquez and Arina Lekhele enjoy a reception in the club ' s honor. 2 Mortar Board was (first row) Abbie Goldfarb, Stacey Shapiro, Stephanie Weston, Brooke Glass (second row) Arina Lekhele, Graciela Vazquez, Lawrence Foe, Tallee Billiard, Melissa Berren, Kelly Flint (third row) Jim Bushnell, Gabe Aldaz, Alaina Levine, Mina Stafford, Carin Sunderman, Jay Won Bartlett, Jennifer James and Jill Howard. 3 The Board held weekly meetings to discuss the events they would be participating in. Although the club was very business minded and got all the necessary details taken care of, they also spent time sharing personal experi- ences. At the end of every meeting they had a " what ' s going on in Mortar Board " session where club members told one exciting event of their week. Tonya Hladky and another member discuss their upcoming philanthropy. 4 One major project the club did was bring in students from local junior high schools and let them " shadow " members. The idea was to show the students what campus life was like and to make the University more accessible to the community. 5 Cheers! Taking a break from their studies and community services are Melissa Berren and Jim Bushnell. The club provided a way for students to stay active and to have support in their academic careers.

Ryan: Olympic style boxing focuses on the mental aspect of boxing as well as the physical. YRBK: How does the mental aspect contribute to the sport in the boxing ring? Ryan: Boxing is like a chess game. The boxers must watch each others body language and try to anticipate their opponent ' s next move. YRBK: What is the history of club? Ryan: The boxing club first appeared at the UA in 1934 and continued until 1937. Fifty-four years later, in 1991, UA student Grant Seligs on approached Tony Pinto about resuming the boxing program at UA. The idea was accepted and the boxing club gained attention by sending two members to the all American Championships. YRBK: What is the current status of the club? Ryan: During this year we had about twenty members. The club sold tee-shirts to sponsor members at tournaments. This year the club had a web sight for the first time. It included boxing tips and workout techniques. The web sight even got responses from Australia. M« U ALPHA EPSILON DELTA PRE-MEDICAL HONORARY YRBK: What is the purpose of Alpha Epsilon Delta?

We have doctors come to speak at every meet- ing and we interact socially to get to know each other. This year we recieved first place for program- ming in the West Region from our National Organization. YRBK: What do you like best about Alpha Epsilon Delta? Steve: The thing I like best are the people you meet. It ' s nice to be around people who think the same way you do, who have the same stresses. In general, it is a great group to know.

Members were able to talk to company recruiters about internships and employment. At the National Career Conference they were also able to hear well known guest speakers such as Bill Gates and Gene Krantz, the mission control director for the Apollo 1 3 mission. " It was very motivating to hear Krantz talk about how it was young engineers like us, which NASA pulled out of college, that brought Apollo 13 back, " commented Magallanez.3.Intel Latino Network representative, Michelle Sedillo speaks at one of SHPE meetings. Various companies were invited to SHPE meetings to speak and keep the organization updated on engineering practices. 4.Sandy Stein from Hughes Missiles Corporation was the keynote speaker for the Young Latina Forum, hosted by SHPE. Over 100 girls from Pueblo and Cholla high school attended the event. SHPE relied heavily on the sponsorship and donations from out side companies to fund these events.

Here, Thomas Louden is practicing using camouflage in different areas and trying to blend with his surroundings. This particular practice is being held on Mt. Lemmon although the club held many different types of practices in many different places. 2 One thing the club does religiously is their " PT " , or physical training. Matthew Barker and Thomas Sisk are just two of the members that meet three times a week for two to three hour workouts. 3 The swimming pool at the recreation center became a sort of home to this club as the members swam several mile workouts every week. Having just completed their water workout Victor Hill, Thomas Louden and Robert Hulse prepare for the next segment of their training. 4 Although the club had their PT during the week they did some very exciting things on the weekends. Here Brian Rafacz and Craig Plunkard are rapelling at Mt. Lemmon. Other outings included skydiving and SCUBA diving at San Carlos. 5 Aside from running the club did some alternative exercising. These exercises broke the monotony and prepared the members for the different terrain they might encounter in the Navy Seals program. Bruce Osborne, Thomas Sisk, Victor Hill, Robert Hulse, and Craig Plunkard do their training happily knowing it benefits them in the end. Photos Courtesy ofNSWC Oi to iy vM. RIFLE AND PISTOL CLUB YRBK: What is the main purpose of your club? LARRY We spend the first three weeks of the semester just trying to teach students marksmanship at the military and civilian level. We also teach recreational gun handling along with gun safety and technical knowledge. The rest of the semester is spent shooting at the range. YRBK What are some activities or programs the club has been involved in? LARRY We have been involved in Postal Matches. These are matches done through the mail. We are sent targets to shoot at, and then we send them into the competition. They are then compared with other institutes, and points are awarded for the best targets. We have received many awards for theses matches. YRBK How many members are in the club, and how many times a week do you meet? Larry: There are 35 members, and we meet once a week in the bottom of the Bear Down Gym. The club is also a one credit course in conjunction with the Army ROTC. YRBK What is your position, and wht do you do? Larry: I am the President, and I help our advisor. Sergeant Landers, run the club. I also help with funding, scheduling events, and firing times at the range. YRBK What are some of the fundraisers the club has done? Larry: We have helped the Army ROTC, on three occasions, with stadium clean up after the football games. This helped to pay for our end of the semester picnic. H v t Sftoid M 4f.v. .- PRE-PHARMACY CLUB YRBK: What is the purpose of the Pre- Pharmacy Club? Sarah: Pre-Pharmacy is a program, not a major, and the club exists to help members finish the criteria for the pro- gram. This professional organization also enables students to get to know all the fields of pharmacy. YRBK: What activities are held to accomplish the club ' s goals? Sarah: We meet once a month and at every meeting we have a speaker. The speakers are from the UofA pharmacy department or are experts in the field. This way the members can get a lot of information and make important con- tacts. In addition to speakers, we pro- vide interviewing tips and set up study groups. YRBK: Can the members gain practi- cal experience through the Pre-Phar- macy Club? Sarah: Yes, they can. They gain expe- rience through volunteering. Some people volunteer at the University Medi- cal Center and others give their time to the Poison Control Center. Service points are awarded to members for their efforts.

For these students and other people interested in outdoor activities, there was at least one event every weekend except during finals. 2 Mike Ashby admires a Haunted Canyon log cabin once used by ranchers. Members also got the chance to see such places as Puerto Penasco and Organ Pipe National Monument. Not everything was totally hiking related. In February, the club held a 60 ' s-70 ' s costume party. 3 Matt Ashby, Mike Ashby, Joel Smith, Chris McDowell, and Erich Karkoschka backpack their way through the Superstition Mountains.

UU HUu CU MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS ASSOCIATION YRBK: What is Management Information Systems Association (MISA)? Brendan: It was formed to offer students interested in the MIS field an opportunity for direct contact with Information Systems professionals and companies looking specifically for MIS majors. YRBK: How does the club do this? Brendan: The club brings in representatives from different companies to speak on their area of expertise. YRBK: What companies have come in this year? Brendan: We have had people from Anderson Consulting, America West and Microsoft just to name a few. YRBK: Is this all the club does? Brendan: We also have demonstrations on some topics, for example Internet presentations. Our main purpose is to create networks between students, faculty, recruiters and professionals in the field. YRBK: Does the club only do career related activities? Brendan: No, we have several social functions. We have a booth at the Spring Fling, we have Homecoming festivities and other philanthropies. Right now we are working on an annual award for an outstanding professor in the MIS department. All the MISA members get to vote. This way we can reward the efforts of at least one person who works hard for the college community. YRBK: How many members are there? Brendan: Around 110 consistent members, mostly MIS majors. I like the club not only for the career opportunities but for the chance to get to know people in my same area of study. 0l£ »%vjXfc« » HACKS - THE HARDWARE AND COMPUTING KNOWLEDGE SOCIETY CREATED AN 11 OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO GAIN EXPERIENCE IN COMPUTER RELATED FIELDS, EXPERIENCE NOT FOUND IN ANY CLASSES AT THE U OF A.

Members of HACKS may not have been able to attain the experience and information they found if the club did not exist. The members were allowed to create projects and " experiment " with computer hardware and software as they never could before. 3 Advisor Mark Westergaard with members John Forrister (Systems Administrator), Brendan Johnson (President), and Paul Gallegos (Vice President). All the members of HACKS have nicknames or " handles " that they use when online. Some examples are RedWolf, Ranma, Darknight and Ghost. This is done for fun and for safety purposes. 4 They always say the one who dies with the most toys wins. If it ' s true- the HACKS members will probably win.

Valerie: Best Buddies is a nation- wide organization that matches col- lege students with individuals in the community who are mentally retarded. A few of the goals of Best Buddies are to " increase op- portunities for special friendships; offer persons with mental retarda- tion the chance to contribute their gifts and talents to the community; help all involved become more comfortable with one another and the community they live in; give university students the chance to know, understand and appreciate the unique qualities and gifts of their new friends. YRBK: What kinds of activities do you sponsor or participate in ? Valerie: We do mostly one-on- one activities, and we meet two to three times a month and do things like bowling, going for walks, and once a month we do group activi- ties like going to the zoo or going on picnics. YRBK: What are some of the goals of the club, or the positive effects it has on the community? Valerie: It really serves to de- velop friendships and bring these individuals out into the commu- nity who otherwise might not have the opportunity to do so. YRBK: How large is the pro- gram? Valerie: There are 160 colleges and universities particpating in the program, and Buddies are matched with students according to qualifications and similar interests. YRBK:What does the program emphasize the most? Best Buddies: The program points out that a person with a mental disability is a person just like any- one else, and that mental retarda- tion is a condition, not a disease. Really, what it is is a friendship, and the Buddies do " anything two 0t£Ah y c l STUDENTS AGAINST DRUNK DRIVING (SADD) WAS AN ORGANIZATION DEDICATED TO EDU- CATING STUDENTS NOT ONLY OF THE PERILS AND REPERCUSSIONS OF DRIVING DRUNK, BUT OF THE DANGERS OF ALCOHOL ABUSE IN GEN- ERAL. THROUGH EDUCATION-ORIENTED PRO- GRAMS, U OF A SADD MEMBERS WERE Traveling EROAD TO LIFE ■% 1 In April SADD held an annual Walk for Life in Tucson. This walk was used to promote awareness of drunk driving and to remember those who lost their lives in drunk driving accidents. Secretary Sephra Ninow and vice-president Cathy Haris took part in the walk which took place this year at Lincoln Park. 2 Each year in November the Southern Arizona SADD advisory council held a Conference in Tucson for junior high, high school, and college students. Many different issues were covered in workshops such as " Cops ' Point of View " and " Drunk Drivers-Their Side. " 3 A lock-in was held at Lakeside Sports Club in September for all SADD members in Southern Arizona. From eleven PM to five AM, SADD students participated in activities such as bowling, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and the favorite one of all, hula-hooping. 4 In April of 1995 U of A SADD members particpated in Grad Fest, an activity geared toward graduating high school seniors, and sponsored by Gateway. Although drunk driving issues were important, it was TV actor Jamie Walters who really drew the crowd, including SADD members Sephra Ninow, Stacey Mahn, Angela Towner, and Sara Salek. 5 The members kept pretty busy not only with the activities of the club itself, but also outside activities, such as the conference held by the Southern Arizona SADD advisory council. pwT ilk vl 1 1 Li a ' ' ■ " l r M ' J% ' I p (£M m. ■ SAW TRYING TO BE A POWERFUL INFLUENCE FOR GOOD ON CAMPUS, THE LATTER-DAY SAINT STUDENT ASSOCIATION HELPS STUDENTS STAY CLOSELY AFFILIATED WITH THE LDS CHURCH, PUTS THE STUDENTS ON THE TRACK OF ACADEMIC SUCCESS, AND OFFERS THEM WHOLESOME SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. linkin ' CHOOL CHURCH 1 Jen Lang drags John Heidenrich to the annual Preference dance formal.

Christi: It is a national organiza- tion that ties together campus min- istries. The campus ministry con- gregation at the U of A is Community of Christ. Lutheran U of A students meet with students from other schools at regional and national LSM gatherings. YRBK: What does Community of Christ provide to students? Christi: Community of Christ cre- ates an environment that nurtures spiritual growth and makes a social atmosphere which is very supportive. Also, the congregation ' s activities give opportunities to do community service. This traditional Lutheran church is tailored to university life, having different types of services, but still has fundamental doctrine. YRBK: What were some of the acti vites held this year? Christi: We had Bible studies, retreats, and prayer circles. To bring people together, we held potlucks and Friday recreational events. Once a month was a service activity, such as a food drive or a party for children in shelters. YRBK: What do you like best about LSM? Christi: I love the people. You can really feel the spirit, especially during Sunday worship services. Wednesday night vespers are my favorite activity. They are a time to refocus, relieve stress, and just sit still for a while. None of this would be possible without Pastor Kautz, who is so dedicated and so knowledgeable. If he wasn ' t there, the students wouldn ' t come.

In addition to the student chapter, there is also a professional local chapter, SHRM of Greater Tucson. 5 Aside from coloring eggs for children, the SHRM also does activities such as dinners once a semester, the faculty breakfast held fall semester for all professors and graduate student instructors in the Management and Policy Department, and a canned food drive in March for Tucson Food Bank. 0l£A Uj. £C«-»»4 C " PROJECT VOLUNTEER YRBK: What is the purpose of Project Volunteer? Bee: We work with the Department of Student Programs, and people come into our office wanting to do volunteer work and so we send them to different places to volunteer; it might be just for one day or some- thing that ' s ongoing. We really try to promote hands-on learning, ser- vice-learning, and learning by do- ing. YRBK: What kinds of activities have you done? Bee: Once a week I go into grade schools and teach the sixth grade. I talk to them about the college expe- rience and try to get them interested in college. We also do one-time projects with fraternities and sorori- ties-one-time things that need a lot of people to help out. We try to do something like that once a semester. And on Wednesday we ' re making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on the mall for the homeless. YRBK: Are there any membership requirements? Bee: We always need volunteers. The only requirement is th e will to serve and help out. YRBK: Do many members partici- pate in this as a part of their major or for extra experience to get into a certain college? Bee: We have two types of people that come into our office-people who want to help out as well as gain experience for their career or col- lege, like education or nursing, and those who want to help out because it ' s something they ' re interested in but don ' t get to do every day. f KAft Rt»««.1 X H AfHtit+t DISPLAY ADVERTISING % Doug Hawkins, marketing manager for the display advertising of the Arizona Daily Wildcat, spoke about why h e works for the campus news- paper.

After getting all the information he needs, Sam Spiller works until he gets the job done right. The Wildcat was published daily which made their deadlines a lot stricter than other student publications. Beat reporter Charles Ratliff said, " I got more experience, on top of the educational side, by working for the Wildcat " 3 The task of getting contacts was endless! The students who published the paper were always busy trying to meet people, take pictures and get to class.

Copy Editor Holly Shinn helped make all the necessary adjustments so that the pages were ready for publishing. She said, " I like correcting proofs because I want the yearbook to have the best possible pages. It is satisfying knowing that I had a hand in putting out an excellent yearbook. " 3 All the work was done on computer and sent on disk to the publishing plant in California. Sports Editor Nhan Ly puts the finishing touches on his spreads. He said, " Although computer work was time consuming, the hardest part was getting in touch with student athletes and coaches for information. " 4 Communication was essential to getting the book done on time. Discussing some details with Editor - in - Chief, Carmen Leon, are Section Editors Najah Swartz and Valerie Miller. Although the staff had the opportunity to make their own layouts there were specifications set for each portion of the book. 5 Working on the yearbook entailed a lot of responsibili- ties.

The season record told of many holes in the once fabled defensive wall that was ranked No.2 in the nation. Arizona began their season with early victories over Pacific and Georgia Tech, but after the quick victories, the Wildcats let down their guards and were beaten by Illinois and USC. The biggest loss came when Arizona hosted Oregon in their Homecoming game. A win would have given the Wildcats a contention for a bowl game, but the Wildcats failed to reach the goal line by two yards in four attempts. After the failed offensive scheme by the offense coordinator, the once mighty Arizona team lost the game by 17- 14. The loss wasn ' t just a regular season loss, it meant that they gave up a chance to appear in the post- season play. Remembrance.The 1995 season was one of many great surprise achievements and many unwanted and unpredictable events. The biggest was the loss of Damon Terrell, who died September 7, causing emotional turmoil to fellow teammates.

Arizona dealt with the departure of Ail- Americans Amy Che- llevold and Laura Espinoza, two of the best power hitters in the nation. Both combined for the total of 40 home runs, 213 hits, 176 RBIs and 164 runs scored. Although the loss might have tarnished Arizona ' s hope for another championship, three out of the last five years, UA was still led by an Ail-American senior second baseman Jenny Dalton, All-Pac-10 senior third baseman Krista Gomez, All-American junior pitcher Carrie Dolan, and first-team All-Pac-10 junior pitcher Nancy Evans. Obstacles. Arizona ' s only trouble wasn ' t just the loss of seniors but also the loss of two other outstanding athletes: All-American Leah Braatz and All- American Leah O ' Brien. O ' Brien redshirted her 1 996 season due to her participation on the U.S. Olympic team. Braatz redshirted because she gave birth during the spring time, toward the end of the sea- son. V Jenny Dalton.. This year ' s team has been drawn together masterfully. We ' re a great team because we mix together so well. Being a Wildcat has been great, two out of three national championships was not bad, but three would be better. In the pass 5 year ' s UA softball took home 3 national titles and 3 Pac-10 titles. For the last 3 previous years, Arizona had No. 1 ranking. Pitchers Carrie Dolan and Nancy Evans won big in 1995, turning in 33-2 and 31-4 records in leading UAto an NCAA single- season record of 66. Krista Gomez. Considering we lost so much, we fought hard and came together and won. We ' re more of a team this year, certain people last year won games for the team, now it ' s different people coming out and winning the ball game. Lety Pineda.

As the new season began, one question that was usually asked was whether it ' ll be Arizona or UCLA. Arizona was runner-up last year but took the championship title 2 years before that. UCLA defeated Arizona and went home with the title last year by the score of 4-2 and also the 1992 season where Arizona was on the receiving end of UCLA ' s bat with the score of 1-0. Arizona and UCLA duked out for the national title 4 of the last five seasons, Ari- zona winning 2 and UCLA winning 2 the same. Early battles. Arizona began their season playing as well as ever. The pace was as solid as previous years. Arizona ' s first contention was against their nemesis UCLA. No. 1 Arizona (38-4 overall, 11-1 in the Pac-10) faced off with No. 3 UCLA in April. Freshman pitcher Lisa Pitt ( 1 0-0) led the way for the young spirited Cats to an easy 5-1 victory over the Bruins. Arizona went away and swept UCLA in two games. With the victories, Arizona moved on to the No. 4 Fresno State who showcased their impres- sive record of 36-6 overall. Arizona fought hard the first game and won easily 7-3 over the Bulldogs, but Arizona fell behind in the second game and lost 2-1. The interesting fact that came out of the split with the Bulldogs was: Arizona scored 7 runs on them, in the Bulldog ' s previous 1 9 games, the team had given up only 7 runs total in those nineteen previous competitions.

As the season began, the women ' s volleyball team played up to their potential and surprised many with exciting upsets.

The team started the season steam-rolling past 9th-ranked Ohio State in Co- lumbus and winning three tournments en route to a 12-3 record and a No. 12 national ranking. Unfortunately, the team spiral ed downward in the second half of the season, los- ing to No. 9 UCLA. This started the Cats ' 13-match slide in which they only won twice. The tough five sets included losses to Oregon State, South- ern Cal and Arizona State. The final leg of the Wildcats ' sea- son ended in Hawaii, where the Cats lost to No. 2 ranked Hawaii. The Wildcats, who tried to regain their early win- ning streak, finished with a 14-14 record, in what Coach Rubio called a disappointing season. Coach Rubio expects next year ' s season to be an- other traditional Wildcat win- ning season. With experience under their belts, the under- classmen who played crucial tight games during the season will be better prepared to handle tough games next sea- son. With only the departure of senior Laura Bartsch, the Wildcats will have the same combination and team chem- istry to pull off another tradi- tional season.

What we ' ve experienced this year (undefeated in dual meets this season) is unbelievable. I only wish everyone can exper- ience it. Ashley Tappin. W e have an in- cred- i b 1 e team this year. Its a nice feeling to come to a school that has great recruits and watching them grow into great athletes. The coaches played their cards well in the Claudia Stan- esc u . This has been the best season in UA history. We ' re all looking forward to the NCAA Tournament, where we ' re shooting for the top 3. Our hard work and God ' s help can bring us success. Arizona soccer team kicked off the year with wins but missed the... OAL Offside season. The Arizona women ' s soccer team started their season by winning three on the road and giving up just one game during the 4 game run. Their three victo- ries tied their previous inaugu- ral season record, with many more games ahead of them. But the fast pace left the team with high expectations, only to have it turned against them. The soccer team ended their season 6-11, doubling their first year ' s efforts, but left them feeling empty. " This year we did improve over last year, but it was a disappointment be- cause we should have won some games that we did not, " head coach Lisa Fraser said. " For a second year we played a tough schedule. " Shining through. The sea- son of improvements brought forth the best out of senior forward Christine Keeley, a team captain and the offen- sive force for the Wildcats. Keeley finished the season leading the team in every of- fensive category: 61 shots on goal, 1 1 goals, five assists and 27 total points, all of which are team records. Another stand out was freshman Nicki Jones, who helped out Keeley with the offensive load by getting 30 shots on goal, eight goals, and 19 points, and tied for third with senior Kelly Keve with three assists. " We improved every game this year, but we did not play up to our potential in some, " Jones commented. Soccer coach Lisa Fraser ended her 2nd season with the Wildcats with a career record of 9-22 and an overall record of 61-53- 7 in 12 seasons as a coach. Last years record doesn ' t show the fact that 3 of the losses were by one point and 4 other losses were by two points. Kelly Keve. There are always highs and lows within a season. We ' ve had a tougher schedule then the year before, but we ' re working towards the future and in a couple of years, we ' ll be a force to be reckon with. Maybe even next year we can be as good as we ' re capable of being. Jennifer Weibel. It ' s really exciting to be on a young team because it gives me the opportunity to see it grow. Both on and off, as a team, we all have great times together. We ' ve improved 100% from last year but we ' re half way from where we wanna be. Christine Keeley. It was a struggle coming back from my injury last season, but I ' ve found that I have enjoyed playing more . I am looking forward to coming back next year and was very optimistic about this season and to the next to come. I have things I can work on.

TE DEPTH Great era. Arizona began their season like that of the great UA team that brought in the NCAA Trophy. UA ' s 6-1 start was the best UA beginning since the early 90 ' s. The success was due largely to the vast improvements in pitching and defense. UA ' s motto for the season was " Defense is the name of the game. " Concentrating their efforts on defense and depth, Coach Jerry Kindall entered his 24th season expressing the importance of a solid defense that produces at the plate. Kindall returned eight pitchers and eight position players to Frank Sancet Field. Out the Field. Hitting had always been important to the Wildcats. Earlier in the season, the Wildcats came from behind twice to win over their opponents. Late heroics seemed to be a new trend. The Wildcats won two tight games in the last inning stretch. One highlighted the Cats hitting three home runs in the last three innings to tie the game, and eventually winning in the extra inning. Leadership. This years squad was led by co- captains John Powers and Tom King. With great hitters Jeff Gjerde, John Powers, Diego Rico, and Kenny Corley, the No. 22 ranked Wildcats would be a force in the Pac-10. Tim King. rf fc The goal is £-J to make it Hph , to Omaha.

The University of Arizona baseball team rode a rollar coaster season. They went from a perfect beginning, one of UA ' s best starts ever, to one of the worst losing slumps ever. Ari- zona lost seven straight, which could be consider retribution for their eight-game winning streak earlier in the season. Top Ten. UA showcased three Wildcats in the top ten in triples of the Six-Pac. First in triples was senior second baseman John Powers with seven, second was junior Jeff Gjerde with five and third was Erik Mattern with four triples. Although those were impressive individual stats, it didn ' t add up to victory for the Wildcats. They fought hard but were not always able to win. Sev- eral teams were beat by Arizona ' s late inning come-from-behind victories. Although the Wildcats faired great i n teeth clenching games, the Wildcats had several losses by a large margin. Slugging. Several of the Wildcats showed that they were able to hit the ball effectively. Gjerde led the Six-Pac in hits with 67, and right behind him was Powers who sported 62 hits. Another Wildcat core center fielder Diego Rico was tied for seventh with 52. Jeff Gjerde also led the Six-Pac in runs batted in with 51. Keeping them low.

Freshman runner Amy Skieresz surprised everyone with her outstanding entrance into collegiate cross country. Skieresz became the first Arizona woman and the first freshman woman to win the Pacific- 10 Conference championships. Skieresz ' streak didn ' t stop there. Her major feat took place in the NCAA cross country champi- onships at Ames, Iowa. Her performance was recognized as the best ever by an Arizona woman, finishing second in the NCAA championships, four seconds behind first place. Skieresz led the Wildcats to a sixth place overall finish, their second highest finish ever at the NCAAs in Ames. Another era. Since the de- parture of Martin Keino, sophomore Bob Keino stepped up from his brother ' s shadow to make his own claim as an outstanding UA runner in a new era. Keino led the Wildcats this season with two first place finishes earlier in the season. His running talent shined during the NCAA championship, where he competed as an individual finishing 11th place. His performance earned him an Ail-American honor. The men ' s cross country team finished 3rd in the Pac-10 and district championships, but wasn ' t good enough to be selected for the NCAA championships.

It was definately a surprise to me coming in 2nd at the NCAA Championships. Also, I felt that the unity on the team was good and that we all got along very well. I ' m really not thinking about the future until it starts again. Viola Schaffer. As a team, we did very well. At the beginning of the year we aimed for 5th in the country.

One For All Paul Gause I think that we have more people interested in play- ing this year compared to last year, where people were there for social pur- poses only. We also have a lot of guys who played for a couple of years before and their performances shows it. The club here at the UA is giving guys here a chance to play one of the popular sports in the world. Tom Scholzen This year ' s team has more unity and are focused to win. The coaches are able to com- mit more than last year. With this year, we got more help from great recruits. This year ' s recruits were great in contrib- uting to the goal of the team. What I love most about this game is it ' s competitiveness. I think it ' s fun. I feel proud to be on this year ' s team because everyone put a lot of effort in it. Chris Bloomer This season is the best ever. We went 1 3-4, the last time a team did this good was in the 80 ' s. Our strengths were in the forward pack and senior leadership. To win thirteen games in a season was great, but it ' s even better to win eight in a row to finish the season.

Higgins was a first year player who transferred to the UofA from New York. Arizona ' s " B " lacrosse team finished last year winless. This year they improved their record to 8 wins and 4 losses.

The Lacrosse team, often called the Laxcats, debuted their talents to the Tucson area, showing an impressive 1990 Championship and appear- ances in the Western Collegiate Lacrosse League (WCLL) " Final Four " , six of the last eight years. Since the establishment of the WCLL in 1980, the Laxcats have gone to the playoffs every year except 1987. With a great foundation to start from and a magnificant history to uphold, the lacrosse team seemed to embrace the challenge. Standing tall. Ranked No.2 in the nation, the Laxcats claimed there position by beating former No.2 Chapmen University in sudden death overtime. The victory guaranteed for the most part a home field advantage in the quarter finals. While starting out with twenty three players, the team faced an obstacle when three players were declared ineligible by the league and three others were lost to serious injuries. While the team was left with only fourteen players it opened up the season with a remarkable record of 6-0, earning the No.2 ranking. The team was only under Whittier College whose record was identical to the Laxcats. Leading the Laxcats were junior tri-captain David Wilner and Josh Safara, who has been scoring for the team consistently. vestowardsthepla , high. This team could be one of the most successful compared to the previous years. That could be attributed to a good team chemistry and players putting out their best efforts. Josh Safara.

While the students hop efuiiy in 3-5 yrs , they win be are learning what is entailed in the breeding processes they are also learning the daily management and care for a horse. " The most difficult procedure of the horse farm is the actual foaling of a foal (the birthing process). This procedure takes 3-4 students to check on a mare every half hour a night. This process starts about 7-8 nights before the foal is actually ready to be born. In case the mare foals early. The students check for problems that might arise in the birthing process. Most mares give birth at night but occassionally in the middle of a day a mare will foal by herself. m _ I he horse farm has no shortage for potenlial breeders. With mares coming in from as far as New Mexico the reputation of the Horse Farm is great. But the main purpose of the farm is to give the students hands-on experience with the actual birthing process which started about 7 days before the mare was actually due. Najah Swartz wartz at uring the foaling (birthing) process, 3-4 students were scheduled to come in during the foaling process to check on the mare every 1 2 hour. Mares have a natural tendency to give birth in the night, on occasion a mare will give birth to a foal in the middle of the day with no help in the pastures.

The business path entailed learning about the management side of a race track, while the animal emphasis dealt with the care and man- agement of the horses. A major part of this program was the student internship. Because of the high demand for interns, students generally never had problems getting placed. The faculty decided where to place the interns after reading their applications. The students got paid a minimum wage and received credit for being an intern. What this internship provided the student was hands on experience and contacts for future employment.

Ln the College of Education there is a great push for future teachers to be bilingual. Why? Because 41% of the the children in the public school sys- tem are ethnic minorities and only 12% of the current teachers are in minority groups. As one can see the need for bilingualism is very h igh. The University has one of the largest bilingual programs in the coun- try. In this program students learn a variety of methods to teach English as well as the usual subjects to elementry students. A typical method is for class to be taught and spoken in Spanish.

The pass fail class concluded with a half day trial. Advanced Trial Advocacy had a criminal or civil trial in progress every week. To add to the realism, non-law students volunteered to be jurors and guest judges were brought in.

Kyle made it a point to appear at every game against ASU painted with a U on his chest, with his friend Tony Millunzi donning the A.

" It ' s all fun and games until someone loses a testicle. . . Whenever I see someone running down the hall or playing around I tell them that, " said Kyle. " Then, they listen, " he added with a laugh. " The job is what you make it. Originally I got it for the free room, but it really turned out to be fun.

" I like being an RA at Arizona-Sonora because the residents are so energetic and full of life, " commented Alex Wilson. " I ' ve got an excellent floor, too, " he added with a grin. Coronado This year marked the beginning of the new Coronado Hall. The immensity of the building (about 100 residents in each of the 8 floors) made it necessary to devise a way to unite all the residents. For that purpose, each floor was named a " house " and was given a symbol to identify with. Each House had its own council that made sure the needs of its residents were being met. Assistant Hall Director, Troy Lillebo, commented on the changes Coronado went through and their impact on its residents, " Along with the changes made to the building there has also been a change in the involve- ment of the residents in House activities. There is so much initiative! Most of them are freshmen and to see them take the challenge has been incredibly motivating.

Joaquin Bermudes from Apache Santa Cruz, especially like those funny moments at the beginning of a term when new residents still haven ' t got the hang of what it means to live in a dorm. Bermudes commented, " I enjoy my job because I get to know the residents at a personal level. I remember one incident during the first week of classes when this girl came up and asked me why there ' s no soap in the bathroom. She was all flustered when I told her she needed to bring her own and she left in a ' huff. " It ' s the interaction among people that makes residence life a worthy experience for Leah Hutchings, another Apache Santa Cruz RA. She said, " It ' s a great experience. I like to meet people and get them involved in activities so they can come together as a community. I lived in another dorm for three years so this took me out of a familiar atmosphere, which makes it more exciting because I get to meet new people.

It was a night of movie watching and pigging out on junk food while enjoying the company of good friends. fif+JVStrUO ) Manzanita Mohave There was a big bash to celebrate the 40th birthday of Manzanita Mohave, but more than a celebration for the building, it was a celebration of the spirit of the residents. Manzi-Mo resident Scott Waugaman commented that, " It ' s a good place to live, very sociable, very compact and everyone gets along pretty much. What we lack in luxury, we make up in spirit. " Everyone joined in the festivities with the best of humor and enjoyed the celebration, whether it was by singing karaoke or by enjoying the skits presented. It was a week- long celebration that according to the organizer, Kirk Silbey was really " a thank- you to all those who live here. " RA Niki Hammond also had nothing but good things to say about her dorm, " It ' s been a great year, it ' s cool that it ' s 40 years old. There ' s always a lot going on here and I am really glad I got a chance to live here. " It was not just the residents who had nothing but praise for the hall. James Van Arsdel, director of residence life, commented, " I hope that we continue to build places that are as popular as Manzi-Mo has been. " " Qv lcAh RftUcf aUI i Celebrating J i building may be forty Did, but the residents are as and exuberant as ever. Carrie Kronick, resident of Manzanita Mohave is ready to go serenading during Homecoming weekend. Serenading was a tradition that according to RA, Kirk Sibley, was the focus of a peculiar rule that existed in 1961 addition to offering good entertainment, also offered chicken wings and cake to enjoy, not to mention the sodas that were floating in a plastic swimming pool. Deja-Vu. - - The building docsik ' t seem to have changed all that much in 40 years, on the outside. The interior has been at Manzanita Mohave. The rule stated that residents could not respond to serenaders by talking to them, but were only allowed to applaud. Partyyy!!! Residents, past and present, from Manzanita MUw? got together on Saturday, April 20th to celebrate the hall ' s birthday. Theater Arts freshmen, Alicia Sutton and Rhonda Duering, entertain the crowd during the festivities with the song " Summer Nights " from the movie Grease. About 100 people attended the celebration which began at 4:00pm and in recently remodeled though, and there is little left of the old Manzanita Mohave. What have also changed very much are the attitudes of the residents and the rules they must live by. Take for example the code of conduct in 1961 that prohibited lounging in the lounge and walking barefoot in the lobby. Happy Birthday to you!

She had placed her stuff in the parking lot because she was waiting for the moving people to pick it up. She was distracted for just a moment, but that was enough for her TV to find a new owner. It was Julie ' s first year at Babcock and she said that she moved in there because she wanted a single room, but the aloneness that went with it was something she hadn ' t really counted on. Spring into action! The spring semester was about to start and the staff at Corleone had just held one of the first meetings of the semester. They decided it was the perfect time for a dip in the spa and a staff picture. Corleone ' s staff: (top) Amylynn Vero, Kim Musa, (bottom) Tom Kinnick, Matt Hann and Tony Fiore. When everyone moved back into Corleone during January, the RAs decided to make a trip to the brand new ice skating rink in town, Iceoplex, to hang out. Kiki Riley and Danny White are two of the residents that particpated in the program. According to Amylyn Vero, RA for Corleone, many residents participated in the programs organized by the RAs and the hall government. Splish, splash! Jamie Dickenson, resident of Babcock, invited her little sister Jeanne for a dip in the pool. Jamie thinks that 1 1 :00am - 1 :00pm is the prime time to enjoy the pool, and the sunshine. It was Jamie ' s first year at the UA and she liked to hang out at the pool and did it often, as many of the other residents did. Two of the most celebrated features of Babcock were the pool in the courtyard, and the fact that each room had its own bathroom. Qiui. J. %Md i i£ Ufa n 4 3 Corleone Babcock For those people looking to live on campus, but not very crazy about the idea of sharing a bathroom with at least forty other people, the apartments at Corleone and Babcock were an ideal alternative to dormi- tory life. There was definitely more privacy at Corleone and Babcock, but there was also less opportunity for the residents to really get to know one another. In order to solve this problem, the Hall Director, the Resident Assistants, as well as the hall governments for each hall worked hard to organize activities to bring the residents together. Amylynn Vero, an RA at Corleone, commented on her experiences at Corleone. " It ' s fun living at Corleone even though it is kind of a challenge to do programming. What ' s neat is that everyone has their privacy, but they can still get involved if they want to. The apartments are very nice and it ' s a nice change from the residence halls where I lived for two years.

" The women of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority performed a mini-step routine on the Student Union steps to kick off their Founder ' s Week celebration. The step routine is a tradition for African American fraternities and sororities, said Lasheaka Timmons, president of the undergraduate chapter Mueta. They dedicated their show to one of Delta Sigma Theta ' s recently deceased sorority sisters, Barbara Jordan, a former Texas congresswoman and professor at the University of Texas. " Every year we dedicate Founder ' s Week to the founders of Delta, " said Tonja Lee, historian and political senior. " We ' re here to shout out that we ' re proud members out to serve the community. " Delta Sigma Theta was founded in 1913 by 22 students at Howard University. The last of the founders died in 1990, a week before her 100th birthday, Timmons said. The major programs of the sorority are based on the organization ' s Five Point Thrust: Economic Developement, Educational Developement, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement. " All of our community service falls under on of these thrusts, " Timmons said. " It feels good to be a part of all the hard work, " said Angie Sampson, marketing sophomore.

The thousands of miles that sepa- rated students from their island paradise bacame smaller as the Hawaii Club served as a home away from home. The Hawaii Club has grown and changed immensely in just a couple years. While still serving its original purpose, members have also reached out to fellow university and community clubs and organizations. Recognizing Ha- waii as a special and unique place, the Hawaii Club • has sought to share this culture with others. A year of preparation headed by Jeni Sue was put into making the luau a realtiy. Over 300 people attended the event held at Saint Peter and Paul Church. Members of the club performed various dances and helped serve traditional Hawaiian dishes, which included Kalua Pig, Kalua Turkey and Lomi Salmon to name a few. " A luau is celebrated at wedddings, birthdays, graduations. Basically, it ' s an excuse to come together and eat, " said member, Bri Gamiao. Story by Carmen Leon.

Keeping the Mexican musical tradition alive, theUAMariachi performed at numerous events on and off campus. To join the group students needed to enroll in the class. " Normally, 25-30 students enroll in the class. They do not need experience, but a little doesn ' t hurt. Somehow we make it through, ' ' stated Richard Obregon, Coordinator of Mexican Studies in Music. In the course of the year the mariachi performed on KOLD TV during the week of the Mariachi Conference, on Cinco de Mayo, and the National MENC Confernece in Kanasas City, Missouri to name a few. All helped to broaden the mariachis experience, but also to raise cultural awareness toward the music. " I think students who come to the UA should be aware of the musical traditions of this part of the country. Usually, they come from other areas and have not been exposed to the music or any form of indigenous music, " stated Obregon. " I really enjoy participating in the Mariachi Class, because I not only keep in touch with my culture, but I am able to share that culturewith the many people who we perform for on or off campus, " said Naomi Carbajal. i l SSSfrrfw IV U. ep in to Christine Papajohn Media Arts Stephen Parker Journalism Carlton Parks Business Finance Suchat Pederson Psychology Brian Peterson Psychology Molecular Cellular Biology Randi Petrello Political Science Ttep Pham Computer Engineering Monty Phan Journalism Kesholofgtse Phetlhu Media Arts Mark Pico Health Sciences Mary Beth Pierce Art History Ivy Pirrell Retailing Consumer Studies Jose Pizano Stephen Ponce Fine Arts Graphic Design Ron Popowski Wildlife Ecology Kevin Potter Art Stacy Pridans Psychology Anthropology Karen Prohopchak Special Education and Rehabilitation Robin Putnam Theatre Arts Jennifer Quilici Interdisciplinary Studies h+tpU-Qjjh Fernando Quiroz Mexican American Studies Kelly Raber Finance Robert Radcliffe Business Public Administration Erin Randazzo Family Studies S.
