TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
TUCSON, Ariz. – In a poll of the conference's coaches, the Arizona softball team has been selected to finish third in the Pac-12, the conference announced on Thursday.

The Wildcats, who received 46 points in the poll, are selected to finish third along with Washington, which also received 46 votes. Arizona and Washington trail Oregon and UCLA in the poll.

The Ducks narrowly topped the Bruins in the coaches poll, receiving 61 votes to UCLA's 60 to claim the roll as the conference favorite by a hair. Oregon received five first place votes while UCLA received the other four.

Arizona State was selected fifth while Utah, California, Oregon State and Stanford rounded out the poll.

The Cats finished with a 14-10 record in conference play a year ago, good for fifth in the conference, and return nearly all of its nation-leading offense. UA placed an NCAA-best four players on USA Softball's Player of the Year Watch List, released on Wednesday – Kellie Fox, Chelsea Goodacre, Katiyana Mauga and Hallie Wilson.

The Wildcats open the season next week with a three-game series against Oklahoma State at Hillenbrand Stadium. The Cats and the Cowgirls begin the series on Friday, Feb. 6 at 5 p.m. MST.
