Arizona softball hosts regional for fresh start

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Arizona softball team gets a fresh start by hosting an NCAA regional and that fresh start could be just what Mike Candrea's team needs.

For most programs, a 40-win season is a big deal, but the U of A isn't most programs.

Expectations were sky high before the season, but the Wildcats were inconsistent for most of the year, 11 and 10 in conference play, losing ace Kenzi Fowler with a concussion and sputtering down the stretch of the regular season.

Maybe the urgency an NCAA tournament situation could flip the switch for the Wildcats.
