Storm cuts practice short

The Wildcats got very lucky with the weather the first four days of camp. That luck ran out on Tuesday as lighting, winds and rain forced an early end to practice No. 5.

The Cats got out to Rincon Vista for an early stretch but even getting there early could not give the team enough time to get even half a practice in. The winds shifted and soon a lightning storm to the south was barreling its way to the practice.

The original thought was to wait out the storm on the buses but as weather reports indicated that the storm would last at least two hours. There was some talk of resuming the practice inside McKale but in the end the staff decided to let the players go early.

What made the storm more frustrating was that the Cats were in full pads for the first time. The Cats were able to get some hitting in early, including a spirited 11-on-11 running drill. For the most part the drill was pretty even. A couple of Wildcat runners were able to score in short yardage situations including Brandon Lopez and Glyndon Bolasky.

The Cats will re-take the field on Wednesday with another 6:00 practice. The practice is open to the public, though no cameras are allowed.
