Wildcats Continue to Stay Active in Community

Tucson, AZ The Arizona Wildcats hockey team has remained active during the off week and several Wildcats visited La Paloma Academy School and spent time reading with six classes during the school's "Love of Reading Week."

Andrew Murmes, Jared Lowell, Brian Slugocki, Shane Gleason and Chad Wade took time out of their busy schedule as student athletes to visit with students, answer questions about hockey in the desert, and even demonstrated the proper use of a hockey stick.

Students were treated to gift bags and photo opportunities with their favorite Wildcat athletes.

A special thanks goes to Wildcat Youth Hockey's Patty Moreno, Amber Barber and Jen Owen for once again helping to organize this volunteer event for Wildcat Hockey.

Next Up: The Wildcats will take to the road for the third straight week to take on Colorado University on Friday and Colorado State University on Saturday...Come visit the Wildcat Hockey team as they host a fundraiser for the Wildcat Youth Hockey organization this Sunday at the California Pizza Kitchen in the Tucson Mall from 2-9pm!
