Mowatt to get new arm next week?

The good thing about the Arizona softball team winning the NCAA title on Wednesday is that it kept the SEC from winning yet another national title this year.

A lot of people, Centenary softball coach Mark Montgomery included, where pulling against the Wildcats because they believe they've won too many NCAA titles. Arizona took home the crown for the second consecutive season and for the eighth time overall.

But this time they earned it. The Wildcats lost their first-round game against Tennessee, so they played eight games in six days to win it all. Winning pitcher Taryne Mowatt pitched every inning of UA's 13 postseason games and in the last six days tossed eight complete games, 60 innings and more than 1,000 pitches. Talk about stamina! Mowatt is getting new arm installed next week.

Say what you want about their program, despise them for winning too much, but the Arizona Wildcats have a good thing going on.
