TUCSON, AZ -

In a historic day in Arizona Athletics history, the Wildcats swept Arizona Christian 5-0 in the inaugural sand volleyball season opener on Friday at the Arizona Sand Volleyball Courts.

The Arizona No. 4 team of Allie Cook and Penina Snuka earned the program's first ever pairs victory as they defeated Carlee Swanson and Karleigh McClure, 21-8, 21-5. 

Just a few minutes later on court 1, the Arizona team of Rachel Rhoades and Ronni Lewis won a straight set match against Betsy Caulfield and Aly Furno, 21-16, 21-13. Rhoades-Lewis clinched the win for the Wildcats as Arizona Christian was forced to forfeit at the No. 5 position due to an injury.
