The Scouting Report
By the end of the 2014–15 NCAA Division I women’s gymnastics season, the Arizona Wildcats were ranked 18th in the nation behind the tumbling of Shelby Edwards and Lexi Mills and the coaching of Tabitha Yim. This year, the ‘Cats look to claw their way higher in the national rankings and into a spot in the NCAA Tournament in April—which would represent the program’s 30th postseason appearance. Edwards and Mills—both returning for their senior seasons instead of becoming professional stuntwomen—plus the rest of this year’s roster look to get off to a hot start when the 2015–16 campaign begins at a home meet with Michigan State in the second week of January.
University of Arizona Wildcats
Over the years, the University of Arizona’s athletic teams have been linked together by one phrase: “bear down.” Now the official battle cry of the Wildcats, those were the dying words of an iconic student-athlete, John “Button” Salmon, who died in 1926 after a fatal car accident. Since then, the phrase has stood behind countless milestone moments, such as when Lute Olson, in 1983, became the 11th head coach of the Wildcats men’s basketball team, setting off a string of 25 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances—including a national title in 1997. Several other national titles belong to Arizona outside of the hardwood, including four from the men’s baseball team and eight from the women’s softball program. Every fall inside Arizona Stadium, the Wildcats football team rouses up to 56,000 fans with hard-hitting Pac-12 showdowns, by far the most popular event on campus behind the linguistics department’s weekly phonetics bee.
