Men's Water Polo Tabbed Third In MPSF Preseason Poll
The Pacific men's water polo team was picked third in the preseason Mountain Pacific Sports Federation poll released Tuesday.

Stagg Stadium Update
Currently the Athletic Department, in collaboration with the Department of Capital Planning/Space Management and Department of Support Services, is moving forward with the plan for removing Amos Alonzo Stagg Memorial Stadium which was approved by the Board of Regents in April 2012.  Over the next few weeks, a design team is calculating the final grade for the remaining dirt once the stadium is removed in order to correctly place competitive facilities for field hockey, soccer, and tennis within the stadium site. In addition, a plan is being finalized in the coming weeks for the relocation of existing cell phone towers that are housed on the stadium light poles. Once the final grade has been set and once cell phone towers have been accommodated, the University will seek a demolition permit from the City of Stockton.  The goal for the stadium removal is to have competitive facilities built and playable within the former stadium site for the fall semester of 2014.

Don't forget to show your support of the Tigers and wear your colors every Friday! 

Until next week, Go Tigers!

Ted Leland
Athletic Director
University of the Pacific
