But thanks to a great run of performances by Sun Devil athletes, 2005 was as memorable a summer as the school has ever seen, sporting wise.

Surviving the cycle


Ashley Lowery / THE STATE PRESS
She's smiling and wearing a wedding ring now, a symbol of her newfound happiness. But things weren't always so good for Angel, a northeast Phoenix resident. Early struggles with sexual abuse, which began when she was a young child, led her into destructive relationships and destructive habits. Her story on page 6.
Most children relish trips to their grandparent's house, but little Angel feared them. Forced to spend nearly every weekend there, she still remembers the first time she was molested in that tiny one- bedroom apartment in Azusa, Calif.

Angel was sharing the sofa bed in the living room with her cousin Yvonne when she heard the door softly open. Her grandpa came out of the bedroom and walked toward the sofa bed.

Rolling herself up in blankets, Angel pretended to be asleep. But he sat on the bed and began to touch her, sticking his hands in her underwear. Terrified, she rolled around and fidgeted. That time, he stopped and went back to his room. The next time, he wouldn't.

Angel was 5 years old, and the memory would last her a lifetime.
