Mary Hines attended the University of Arizona from 1947-1951 and was named Outstanding Sportswoman in 1952. Mary played a variety of sports at the U of A due to the WAA and WRA associations that were in place at the time. Her favorite memories were playing softball where she was a catcher and coaching volleyball. Mary still returns to the U of A to cheer on current student-athletes at both Softball and Women’s Basketball. Check out what it means to Mary to be a Wildcat!
Best Wishes for Becky Bell
Shhhhh! This is a surprise!
This year is monumental for the C.A.T.S. Life Skills program, as we say farewell to one of the most iconic and foundational administrators of the program. Becky has announced her retirement from Arizona Athletics this year, and we want to send her off with gratitude and appreciation!
We are compiling a farewell piece for her, and we are asking all alumni who want to join us in saying thank you and best wishes to submit quotes, pictures, or videos HERE. If you have trouble submitting in the form, please email me directly at email@example.com.
Thank you and Bear Down CATS!

BASEBALL ALUMNI WEEKEND
Baseball Alumni Weekend was a success with just about 100 Letterwinners from all eras returning to Tucson!
The weekend started out at Coach Jay Johnson’s house for a dinner and time to spend with fellow teammates and friends. On Saturday, brave Letterwinners participated in batting practice and were able to be back out on the field to enjoy a day in the sun. We finished off with a BBQ down the left field line where we recognized the 1970, 1979, 1980, and 1989 anniversary teams.
To recap the event through pictures, click HERE. We hope that everyone had a great time meeting up with teammates, coaches, and old friends. Everyone from the A-Club thanks letterwinners for coming out to help make this weekend a success!
We were excited to see more alumni come back to Men’s Basketball as well! Scroll over the photos below to see what these Letterwinners are currently doing!
