The Loop

Campus Insider Podcast/Laura Ianello


Back again with another edition of the Podcast. Today's show takes a look at the upcoming NCAA Women's Championship, set to begin next Tuesday at CC of Landfall in Wilmington, N.C., and explores some of the storylines we should expect to play out during the four-day, 72-hole championship.

Joining me as my featured guest is Arizona women's assistant coach  Laura Ianello. The Wildcats have arguably the most momentum of any team in the field at nationals, having won the Pac-10 title and the West Regional over the past month.

Ianello has played a bigger role than she likely would have imagined at the start of the season, as she has been overseeing the women's team along with men's coach Rick LaRose since April 6, when women's coach Shelly Haywood left the team to attend to a private family matter. Ianello talks about what the past month has been like and how Arizona has been able to get better despite a pretty adverse situation.
