Women's Basketball Hosts First-Annual 5K

Oct 27, 2013

Head coach Niya Butts and the Arizona women’s basketball team and staff hosted the first-annual 5k on the U of A lawn on Sunday.

Members of the community, season-ticket holders, Delta Sigma Theta sorority members and Arizona Athletics staff members attended the event to help kick off the 2013-14 season.

“I was very happy with our first-annual 5k,” Butts said. “I felt we had a lot of great support from the community. It just shows that we have an active community here in Tucson and they want to live healthy and support women’s basketball.”

The Wildcats will open their season on Saturday, Nov. 2 in an exhibition matchup versus Ft. Lewis at 3 p.m.
