Tucson, Arizona - Governor Brewer: "Please join me today in celebrating an occasion in which all Arizonans can take pride and claim victory. Last night, the University of Arizona Wildcats defeated the South Carolina Gamecocks 4-1 to become the 2012 College World Series Champions.
"This is a momentous triumph for the University of Arizona, whose baseball team last took the national championship title in 1986. Last night’s victory, which ended South Carolina’s two-year streak as reigning CWS champions, is a true testament to the heart and talent of Arizona’s athletes and coaching staff alike.
"No matter where your loyalties lie, there is no denying that it is a wonderful day to be an Arizona sports fan. Let us all extend our pride and due congratulations to the top college baseball team in the Nation and the 66th College World Series champions. Well done, Wildcats!"
