Red face paint, loud cheers and unique stunts that put you on the edge of your seats at sporting events. Sound oddly familiar? University of Arizona cheerleading is and always has been an integral part of Arizona Athletics and our local Tucson community. Despite the fact that UA’s cheerleaders spend the majority of a sporting game on the sidelines, it is no doubt that they can be credited with helping Arizona’s sporting teams have so much success. The cheerleaders can be found bleeding Wildcat pride at numerous different athletic events on campus. “Our team is co-ed and non-competitive. We cheer sidelines for football, men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball, gymnastics and soccer,” said Alex Zamora, a four-year cheerleader and current senior. “We also do a ton of appearances and volunteer work throughout the community.” As much of a commitment as it sounds, being a member of Arizona cheerleading comes with different responsibilities … [Read more...] about Soaring high with our Cheer ‘Cats: Get to know the team behind the loud cheers
Eddie Kyle kept tapping at the metal Pine Creek Eagles medallion dangling from his neck, tears welling up in his eyes as he described his game-clinching pick-six. For the third year in a row, the Eagles defensive back got to finish the season with the team’s turnover chain — awarded to the last player to come up with a turnover. Except this time, it also came with a Class 4A state title. “I cried a few times already,” Kyle said with a laugh.Forgive the senior his emotions. After two years of falling short of the 4A championship — first in the 2017 final to Pueblo South, then in the 2018 quarterfinals to Skyline — Kyle and the Eagles got their trophy Saturday at Mile High. And his 74-yard interception return for a touchdown, coming with 49 seconds left in the game, was the final exclamation point in a 34-3 victory over previously unbeaten Broomfield. “Getting that pick right there and heading into that end zone, I felt like I was … [Read more...] about “No better way to do it”: Pine Creek defense shuts down Broomfield to claim 4A title
For thousands of years, the debate has raged on: cats vs. dogs. Which is supreme? Two Daily Wildcat columnists attempt to end the argument once and for all. Doggo for the win You pull up into the driveway after a long day of lectures. There sits your happy-faced floofer friend in the window, tail going crazy. The whimpering excitement gets louder as you approach the door. “OMG ITS YOU! FINALLY YOU’RE HOME,” says doggo, not with actual words, but with uncontrollable prancing that prevents getting a pet in. Heavy breathing, whimpers continue, maybe doggo flashes a toothy smile that is as terrifying as it is endearing. It is the same, consistent, reliable abundance of enthusiasm you are greeted with every time you walk through that door, regardless if you’ve been out for five years or five minutes. Just seeing your smiling face, no matter how ugly it may be, makes doggo happy. Nobody, not even your own mother, is ever that happy to see you. Ever.
