Beyond the curve at the top of
the Fraternity Row hill, members of
Beta Theta Pi Fraternity puffed on
Cubans and sipped sweet tea while
a small American flag fluttered in
the breeze.
On Monday, as on every
Memorial Day, Beta Theta Pi mem-
bers, dad in brightly colored polo
shirts, gathered to honor U.S. vet-
erans.
"Campus should do more to
get students to learn about why we
celebrate Memorial Day," said Chris
Denton, a UF history junior.
Denton said every new fraternity
member learns about Beta Theta
Pi's rich history including two
fraternity alums who died in the
Vietnam War.
In a neatly kept cemetery across
town, about 150 solemn faces hon-
ored war veterans at the Second
Annual Memorial Day Celebration.
The crowd, a mix of veterans,
family members and city residents,
gathered at the Forest Meadows


Funeral Home and Cemetery's
Military Garden of Honor to cel-
ebrate the lives of veterans.
The ceremony included a speech
by Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan, a mili-
tary flyover with World War II era
planes, and a 21-gun salute by the
Gainesville Police Department and
the Alachua County Sheriff's Office.
"It's important to recognize the
sacrifices of people
National who have given all
News that they have so
we can enjoy all the
freedoms that we
have," GPD Lt. Lonnie Scott said.
At Arlington National Cemetery
just outside Washington, President
Bush said the U.S. must continue to
fight the war on terror in the name
of those who already gave their lives
for the cause.
"The best way to pay respect is
to value why a sacrifice was made,"
Bush said, quoting from a letter that
Lt. Mark Dooley wrote to his parents
before being killed last September in
the Iraqi city of Ramadi.
He noted that 270 of the nearly

UF ADMINISTRATION

Price tag rises


for scholarships

By LYNDSEY LEWIS
Alligator Staff Writer
Ilewis@alligator.org
A new UF scholarship is expected to draw more minorities
to Gainesville, but expanding the program in future years may
prove costly, UF officials said Thursday.
The Florida Opportunity Scholarship, which was founded
last year in an effort to increase the diversity of UF's student
body, was highlighted during a meeting of the Board of Trustees
Committee on Educational Policy & Strategy.
The new scholarship is designed for incoming freshmen hail-
ing from families that earn less than $40,000 per year. Students
hoping to earn aid from the program must also be Florida
residents and the first members of their families to attend a
university
About 400 students are currently eligible
for the scholarship, Vice President for Student
Affairs Patricia Telles-Irvin said, and the
program's first recipients will enroll at UF
this summer.
But while UF President Bemie Machen an-
nounced plans to set aside $1 million for the
Telles-rvin program last August, university officials now
expect the scholarship to cost about twice that
amount.
Still, even as UF confronts the hefty price tag, Telles-Irvin
praised the program as a means to foster more ethnic and social
diversity on campus.
"The critical piece will be to continuously raise the funds for
this program," she said, adding that Gov. Jeb Bush supported a
grant of $6.5 million to supplement the scholarship's costs.
Although Machen predicted in December that the program's
price would balloon to nearly $7 million by its fourth year, com-
mittee members remained optimistic'about its potential to at-
tract a wider variety of students.
The Florida Opportunity Scholarship's new female recipients
outnumber males by about two to one, she said, and those stu-
dents' families earn an average of about $25,000 each year.
The meeting also laid the groundwork for bringing new pro-
grams to UF, including a bachelor of science degree in biology.

All ears: Festival brings together corn, country life and Christian rock


CORN, from page 1


As Letoumeau sweated through his third
shirt of the day, former teen idol Brian Littrell,
of Backstreet Boys fame, strolled onto the
main stage with an acoustic guitar, primed
to sing Christian tunes instead of his usual
pop hits.
Littrell pointed skyward and thanked
Jesus Christ at the end of his 45-minute set,
which concluded without any girls running
down the lawn-chair-speckled hill to get to
the front of the stage. No panty-throwing or
curdling screams of delight here this was a
different brand of Littrell fan.
Just beyond the stage, in the slanting after-
noon sunlight, Kathy Jordan was ready, hop-
ing to catch the attention of passersby with
a sign announcing "FREE FOOD" hanging
from her vendor table.
Jordan, of Windermere, was among about
30 crafters, bakers and candlestick makers at
the festival.
Jordan sells just about every flavor of cake
imaginable all sealed in a Mason jar. She
sells her cakes in jars at festivals around the
state and ships out dozens of the treats at
Christmastime.
"We do all the shipping," she assures
visitors who stop for a free sample of her
bright-pink strawberry shortcake. "We send
whatever flavor you want."
Jordan's inspiration comes from her
grandmother, who had 33 grandchildren. For
birthdays she sent grandchildren their favor-
ite cake in a jar.
Now she sells cakes and invents flavors of
her own. But the most requested flavors are
the classics: chocolate and strawberry.
"Watermelon is a signature cake that
I made myself, and it kicks butt," Jordan
said. She invented the watermelon flavor for
Chiefland's upcoming watermelon festival.
A few rows down, Daisy Mae patiently
posed for photos with visitors. Sporting a
light-blue visor and electric-blue spectacles
over her furry face, the five-pound Yorkshire
terrier hawked her owner's homemade fash-
ions.
Her owners, Kathy and Jim Rhoden of
Crystal Springs, stitch dog-sized visors.
"She used to squint in the sun," Kathy
Rhoden said. While making a hat for her
Daisy Mae, she found doll glasses that fit her
tiny snout and that hook onto the hat.
The next order Kathy will make when she
gets home is an orange-and-blue Gators hat,
she said.
Around dinnertime, the corn line seemed
endless, wrapping around lemonade stands
and John Deere tractor-trailers.
For Bertha and her crew behind the corn
pavilion, it had been nonstop since 7 a.m..
On Friday night, they planned to cook until
the two truckfuls of corn ran out or 10 p.m.

Once it emerged from its Bertha bath, the
steaming corn was dumped onto a sorting :

pots, slathered it on the cobs and packaged '
the ears into white Styrofoam containers, X

Christian band Mercy Me to play, some wan- .

After sunset, more customers wandered .
to the vendors' booths.
Children ran up to Debbie Vesic's table of
alligator skulls and claws. One alligator skull .,

attention of fellow Gators and sometimes
a few 'Noles.

Florida State University fan at a honey fes--
tival.
"Why, he wanted to buy it to throw it on
the football field," Vesic said. "I refused to
sell it!" Bridget Carey/ Alligator Staff

released into the building.
A number of agencies re-
sponded to the incident, includ-
ing the state Department of
Environmental Protection, the
Gainesville Fire Rescue Haz-Mat
Team and Waldo Fire Rescue.
Faulk estimated that Monday's ef-
forts cost "well over $10,000."
Store owner Jerry Sullivan has
contracted with a state-approved
vendor for cleanup of the chemical
substance, Faulk said.
Cleanup specialists were at the
location Monday, removing carpet

and padding from the building,
and even disposing of topsoil
from around the location. Sullivan
could pay as much as $20,000 to
ensure the safety of the land and
building, Faulk.said.
Sullivan has.a security system
set up at the location, and police
are reviewing the tapes for any
potential leads. They also plan to
take fingerprints from the device
that was left at the scene.
"This man (Sullivan) went
through every hoop and hurdle
that he was asked to do, and he
is legally opening that building,"
Faulk said. "It is wrong for anyone
to take it upon themselves to instill
fear. and injury because they dis-
like his business."


HOLIDAY, from page 1

2,500 troops who have died since
the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks
are buried at the Arlington National
Cemetery.
"I am in awe of the men and
women who sacrifice for the
freedom of the United States of
America," the president said.
Bush spoke at Arlington's 5,000-
seat white marble amphitheater just
a short time after signing into law a
bill that restricts protests at military
funerals.
Congress passed the law, called
the Respect for America's Fallen
Heroes Act, in response to a Kansas
church group that has staged pro-


tests at military funerals across the
country.
The act prohibits protests within
300 feet of the entrance into a na-
tional cemetery and within 150 feet
of a road into the cemetery.
"I am in awe of the men
and women who sacrifice
for the freedom of the
United States of America."
George W. Bush
United States president

Those violating the act would
face up to a $100,000 fine arid up
to a year in prison.
Because Monday's ceremony at


the Arlington National Cemetery
was not a funeral, demonstrators
were free to protest and they
did.
Bush's motorcade passed sev-
eral protesters on his way into the
cemetery.
Memorial Day, first known
as Decoration Day, was first
commemorated in the late 19th
century to honor Civil War dead.
Following the United States' vic-
tory in World War I, the holiday
was expanded to honor all men
and women killed in military ac-
tion.
In 1968, Congress moved the
date of Memorial Day from May
30 to the last Monday in May.

Lackluster

Florida's gubernatorial

candidates need spark
Teb Bush's days are numbered.
Florida's chief executive, vastly more popular than
his presidential brother, will leave office in January, after
ght years in the governor's mansion.
Four men are vying to replace the governor, who must
leave office because of term limits.
Quick: Name those contenders.
Not so fast a recent Quinnipiac University poll found
that four out of five Florida voters could not name'either
of the two Democrats aiming for Bush's office. The two
Republican candidates were struggling to make names for
themselves, as well.
Sunday marked the beginning of a 100-day countdown
to the September primary election, but before the parties'
faithful can anoint a candidate, voters need to take a long,
earnest look at those four strangers running for the execu-
tive spot.
The Democrats, U.S. Rep. Jim Davis and State Sen. Rod
Smith, are in a four-way tie with the Republicans, Attorney
General Charlie Crist and Chief Financial Officer Tom
Gallagher, according to the Quinnipiac poll.
It's hard to blame Floridians for tuning out the guber-
natorial race, with more than five months before the polls
open on Election Day.
The fight for a U.S. Senate seat which pits incum-
bent Bill Nelson against former Florida Secretary of State
Katherine Harris is far more interesting than the pre-
primary squabbling between Davis and Smith, Crist and
Gallagher.
Everyday worries, such as rising gas prices and utility
rates, have also distracted voters and contributed to the
nation's general distaste with politics, which has height-
ened in recent weeks.
And on Thursday, the 2006 hurricane season will begin,
putting the residents of this hurricane-prone state on edge
for the next six months. Hurricane Katrina showed in grisly
and horrifying detail how lapses in leadership at the state
and local level could mean unnecessary deaths and prop-
erty damage. ,
Bush the governor, not the president has been uni-
versally lauded for his handling of the record number of
hurricanes that tore through the Sunshine State during his
term, but his potential successors have only limited execu-
tive experience.
Coupled with the lack of a compelling candidate biogra-
phy, this lack of experience leaves voters uninterested and,
more importantly, uninspired. Former Gov. Lawton Chiles
covered most of the state on foot in his successful 1970 gu-
bernatorial bid, and Bush had the cachet that comes with
being the son of an ex-president.
Liven it up, guys.
At first glance, the four candidates are career politicians
who have grown too comfortable with Tallahassee and
Washington, and little else. Some pizzazz will be necessary
to attract voters' attention.
And if the candidates don't liven things up, their oppo-
nents or their misguided supporters will.
On Monday, a reverend and fervent Crist-ian told fel-
low pastors at a breakfast that God came to him in a dream
two years ago and told him Crist would be the state's next
governor.
Even with God removed from the equation, the
Republican candidates are praying hard to win Bush's
blessing, a savvy move in a state where the governor's ap-
proval rating is 55 percent.
According to the Quinnipiac poll, most voters -
Democrat and Republican remain undecided, giving the
candidates ample opportunity to tell voters how they want
to lead the Sunshine State toward the horizon.
But they've got to introduce themselves first.

Jacksonville overstays 'Party' welcome


hve been following the recent discussion on the Florida-
Georgia game in Jacksonville and the use of the slogan
"The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party."
I just want to point out before I begin that this is hardly a
new topic. The game has been held in Jacksonville every year
since 1933, except for the 1994 and 1995 games.
Since the mid-'80s, when both UF and University of
Georgia fans stormed the field, school administrators and
both Jacksonville and Gator Bowl officials have worried
about the pre-game partying getting out of hand and ruin-
ing the game. Since then, it has been suggested more than
once that the game be held in Athens or Gainesville instead
of Jacksonville.
My concern with the financial aspect of this debate is
that every weekend UF and UGA play, Jacksonville has
more than 100;000 visitors. In her May 18.letter to the editor,
Valerie Prince was right to question why a city unaffiliated
with either university should profit.
Some argue that moving --i; Florida-Georgia game
would end a sacred tradition. As a recent UF graduate I can
say truthfully that I haven't missed a home game in five
years and have attended more than my share of away games,
including the Florida-Georgia game, so I think I know a little
something about traditions.
Every game day, I lodk forward to watching the marching
band play before the game and get the fans pumped. I feel
chills when I hear, "The Swamp, where only Gators get out
alive," over the loudspeaker. I stand and scream with the rest
of the stadium when Mr. Two Bits does his cheer. I love UF
traditions, and I bleed orange and blue right along with the
rest of our Gator Nation.
One thing I noticed about my list is that it doesn't involve
alcohol.
Research shows that a variety of elements contribute to
the violent, or, at best, merely obnoxious, behavior some
people exhibit at sporting events. It also shows that, un-
surprisingly, the most common denominator is alcohol.


Jolie Martin
Speaking Out


Excessive drinking has always been
a problem in the college population,
and we need to be searching for ways
to help students avoid the possible


negative side effects.
The majority of the tailgating in Jacksonville takes place
on the riverfront plaza called the Jacksonville Landing. The
restaurants, bars and other planned festivities encourage an
entire weekend of excessive drinking, which leaves some
people so passed-out they miss the game, others too drunk
to remember the game, and yet others in trouble with the law
or in fights with rival fans.
Tragically, during the last two cocktail parties, two Florida
students have died.
Is it any surprise that earlier this month, the Southeastern
Conference asked that CBS Sports, ESPN and Jefferson Pilot
Communications not refer to the game as "The World's
Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party," as the moniker conveys a
message regarding alcohol consumption that stands in op-
position to the schools' desires?
Some people say that changing the name will be ineffec-
tive. Does the name really have any effect on the drinking?
I say, yes. It builds the hype, and people come to the game
with the expectation that, on this weekend, out-of-control
behavior is acceptable.
In her letter, Prince wasn't talking about killing a tradi-
tion by canceling or moving the game, she was addressing
a public health issue and expressing concern for her fellow
students. She was suggesting that "The World's Largest
Outdoor Cocktail Party" notjustbe renamed but be re-evalu-
ated. Considering its recent history, why is that wrong?
I agree that moving the game could be beneficial, and I
welcome the opportunity to host the c..- the Swamp.
We have the best home-field advantage in the country! Let's
take advantage of it every other year when playing Georgia
and start a new tradition one with fewer casualties.
Jolie Martin is a UF alumna.

Businesses foresee lazy days during summer term


Revenue sinks for local restaurants


Students pinched as market shrinks


By ERIKA PIETRANTON
Alligator Contributing Writer

In a city mostly known for UF,
Gainesville's student population quickly
drops once final exams are over and sum-
mer begins. "
While some students stay in Gainesville
to attend summer classes, to continue work-
ing or to do an internship, the number of
students greatly decreases, and the popula-
tion of Gainesville dwindles.
"Although it's pretty slow right
now, things usually pick up once
Summer B begins because of the
incoming freshman class."
David Crowell
Fitness Supervisor, Southwest Rec

Spring semester saw 33,728 undergradu-
ate students enrolled in classes. However,
only 14,255 undergraduate students are reg-
istered for Summer A and C classes, accord-
ing to the Office of the University Registrar.
The decrease in students causes a decline
in sales for most Gainesville businesses.
Unlike most other restaurants nation-
wide, the T.G.I. Friday's on Archer Road
typically experiences a 10 to 15 percent
decrease in sales during the months of May
through July.
"While in Gainesville sales may have a
tendency to decrease, nationally we are al-
ways trending up in the summer months,""
said manager David Gildart.
The decrease in sales also affects the
number of employees restaurants need.
"We run about the same staffing pars
year-round; however, we are far more pro-.
active to managing labor percentages and
eliminating excess," Gildart said.
For employees that work in Gainesville
restaurants over the summer, the decrease
in student customers often directly affects
the amount of money they make.
"Friday's normally takes care of all my
expenses and then some, except when sum-
mer rolls around and the students aren't as
plentiful," said Eric Pitt, a server at T.G.I.
Friday's. "Now I am-forced to get a part-
time job for the summer somewhere else."
Sales at The Swamp Restaurant on West
University Avenue decrease by a small per-


centage during the summer season, com-
pared to fall or spring.
"We don't amp up our advertising dur-
ing the summer," said manager Christy
Vasquez. "We fluctuate during the different
seasons by tailoring our drink specials."
To help increase summer -sales, The
Swamp offers featured drinks that are pop-
ular during the summer, like pifia coladas.
Many on-campus facilities also see the
effects of summer.
Southwest Recreation Center experiences
a noticeable decline in the use of their facili-
ties over the summer, said David Crowell,
fitness supervisor for the center.
"Although it's pretty slow right now,
things usually pick up once Summer B
begins because of the incoming freshman
class," Crowell said.
The Later Gator, a bus service that
transports students during the evenings on
Thursday through Saturday, does not run
during the Summer A term because there
are so few students in town. Later Gator
service starts again during the Summer B
term.


By SHANNON TUCKER
Alligator Contributing Writer

Students vacating Gainesville this sum-
mer mean fewer job opportunities for those
who remain.
Jennifer Zimek, co-owner of the Ben &
Jerry's on University Avenue, calls it "dead
week."
She's talking about how slow business
gets the week before Summer A.
Zimek expects business to stay relatively
slow throughout Summer A, so she cuts back
on costs accordingly.
"We definitely cut down on employees.
over the summer," Zimek said.
Further complicating matters, Ben &
Jerry's was overwhelmed with applications
when summer began.
"We had to take down our 'help wanted'
sign after we received so many applications,"
Zimek said. "There are definitely more stu-
dents applying than we have spots to fill."
Some students with jobs are also .con-
cerned by slow business.
Rachel Pomeroy, a political science major


Empty Nest
With less students on campus, businesses are hurting and there are fewer
part-time jobs available for students.

Fall 2005 Spring 2006 Summer A/C 2006


Jennifer LaBrie / Alligator Staff


at SFCC, has worked at Finish Line, a shoe
store located in The Oaks Mall, for two
years.
"I've never seen it this slow," said
Pomeroy. "All the students are gone, and
with gas prices so high, families don't
have the cash to splurge on an extra pair of
shoes."
"I've never seen it this slow."
Rachel Pomeroy
Employee at Oaks Mall Finish Line

Pomeroy is saving money, hoping to
move closer to UF, where she starts school
in the fall. Pomeroy picks up hours from co-
workers to get a decent paycheck, she said.
"Some people don't care they want to
take the day off and go to the beach, and you
can work their shift," Pomeroy said.
In addition to being unable to hire more
than about 30 percent of applicants, Finish
Line recently downsized from five people
working at a time, to now just two or three,
Pomeroy said.
New businesses may be most affected by
the slow summer season. Caitlin Harper, a
UF student and employee of Deja Brew Cafe
on University Avenue, remembers how slow
business was when they opened in July 2005.
"We were empty," Harper said. "At that
point, you worry about keeping your job."
Harper said she feels secure because
Target Copy owns Deja Brew Caf6. If Dja
Brew Cafe ever goes out of business, she can
get a job at Target Copy, she said.
According to inventory, daily profits this
summer are about half of what they were
during exam week, Harper said.
"Break week was really, really slow," she
said, referring to the week before Summer A.
"But we expect business to be down in the
summer."
Although profits are not at their peak,
Harper expects D6jh Brew Caf6 to be open 24
hours throughout the summer. Even though
Harper gets enough hours at Deja Brew Caf,
she knows what it feels like to be without that
kind of security.
"I used to work at Pita Pit, where every-
one was fighting for hours," Harper said.
"That's the worst, when there are too many
employees."
That won't be a problem at Deja Brew
Cafe this summer. They're not hiring.

STUDENT LIFE

Oy Vey: Hillel expands menu


By CASSANDRA BIANCO
Alligator Contributing Writer
UF Hillel, a center for Jewish
life on campus, will have the
grand opening for the Oy Vey
Caf6 coffee bar and the Caf6
Jerusalem dining hall on July 3,
just in time for Summer B.
And all students regardless
of religious background are
encouraged to come and sample
the cuisine.
The renovations include three
salad bars, a potato bar, pastas
and desserts in an all-you-can-eat
buffet style. The kitchen also has
its own pastry chef.
Students who come regularly
can choose from different meal-
plan options.
"It's going to be the largest
salad bar in Gainesville," said
Tammy Hendrix, the director of
catering and dining at Hillel.
If students are unable to
attend service and meals on
Friday, they have the opportu-


nity to receive free Shabbat-to-go
meals, thanks to the grants Hillel
receives. Reservations for orders
should be made at least a week
in advance.
"You can order and come
through the back door, and the
kitchen will bring you your
Shabbat-to-go in a box," Hendrix
said.
Bennie Cohen, Hillel program
director, said many events are in
"It's going to be the
largest salad bar in
Gainesville."
Tammy Hendrix
director of catering and dining
at Hillel

the works for students this sum-
mer, including movie nights,
bowling, an ice cream social and
a trip to Ginnie Springs.
"We're just looking to get on
campus and meet a whole bunch
of new faces and see the old faces,


once everybody gets back into the
swing of things," Cohen said.
Cohen said free wireless
Internet and the close-to-campus
location are a major pluses for
students.
"It's an awesome building,
and we're right across from the
stadium," Cohen said.
In the fall, Hillel will be get-
ting D'Lites Emporium in the
building, which specializes in
soft-serve ice cream.
Lander Gold, an active student
at Hillel and former president of
the Jewish Student Union, gave
tours at the-center to parents and
students during the second day of
Preview.
"It shows that there are pro-
grams for everybody and that
not everything Hillel does is re-
ligious," Gold said. "We just try
to accommodate the hobbies and
interests of all the students."
UF has about 7,000 Jewish stu-
dents, which is the largest Jewish
student population of any North
America public university.

fourth top-10 finish

ies en route to matching her first-round score of 76 (4
over) and shot an overall 312 (24 over).
S Rounding out the day, redshirt freshman Ornella
Jouven bogeyed seven holes, dou-
ble-bogeyed one hole and triple-bo-
geyed another in the final round to
finish with a 12-over-par 84 and an
overall 317 (29 over).
UF's performance marked the
fourth time the team has posted a
Briles-Hinton top-10 effort at the NCAAs during
Briles-Hinton's tenure.
During the regular season, the Gators won three
tournaments and earned six other top-10 finishes.
"It was a successful season," Briles-Hinton said.
"We had a young team, so it was a good learning and
growing season. We finished sixth, and we're only
going to get better."


Smaller sports drove Gators' winning streak


TROPHY, from page 19
do we become No. 1 in our league?'
"This league is very competitive in everything and the
strength of Florida's program is impressive, so it's quite an
achievement to come out on top this year."
UF finished behind Georgia in 10 of 16 sports. The final
results came down to baseball. Had UF finished in the top
five on the diamond, the trophy would still be residing
in Gainesville. The Gators finished 11th in baseball in the
league.
Foley said the blame couldn't be put on baseball for
losing the award. There were a number of scenarios that
could have played out differently for UF to keep the title,
he said.
"We won those trophies because of our coaches and ath-
letes that got it done," he said. "Sometimes it's all timing."
The Gators football program, and more recently the
basketball program, steals most of the limelight from other
less mainstream sports. But those sports, such as volleyball,


tennis and golf, have seen UF dominate the SEC and have
ultimately been the reason the Gators have been the best
all-around athletics program in the league for so long.
But at the same time, the major sports and less-main-
stream sports are dependent on each other, Foley said.
"Georgia had a heck of a year. I was hoping
[the streak] would last forever, but things
don't last forever."
Jeremy Foley
UF athletics director

"It takes money to fund the entire athletic program," he
said. "Football and basketball generate the most money, so
it's important that they remain at a high level.
"With that said, we treat every sport the same. Every
Gator is equal. Any championship is a championship for
the school, and that's the bottom line."

The UF women's track and field
team had five individuals and two

ond day of the NCAA East Regional.
Senior Dara Altman set the new
school record in the pole vault cou-
pled with a second-place finish.
Senior Jyn Wynn finished third in

Gators swing top 10 in NCAA tie


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer

Despite an afternoon thunderstorm that halted
play and a steady drizzle, the Gators tied for sixth
place at the NCAA Championships on Friday.
The team managed to improve on their third-
round seventh-place standing and tie with Georgia
and Washington at Ohio State Golf Club's Scarlet
Course in Columbus, Ohio.
The team was two strokes shy of breaking into
the top five and trailed NCAA champion Duke by
35 strokes.
"We had a couple players play steady," UF coach
Jill Briles-Hinton said. "That's what helped us get
the sixth-place finish. We had a couple others that
were hit-or-miss. If they all would have played like
they are capable of, we could have won.
"But that's golf. That's what everybody loves
- the challenge to do good every day."
Sophomore Sandra Gal led UF with a fourth-
place tie of 3-over-par 291.
Gal was tied for second headed into the final
round of the tournament and started off strong by
shooting flawlessly on her front nine.
But she bogeyed three holes on her back nine
and finished the day with a 2-over-par 74.
"Sandra's worked really hard and is very ca-
pable of shooting these numbers and even lower
numbers," Briles-Hinton said. "She plays smart,
and that's what you liad to do on this course."
Sophomore captain Tiffany Chudy trailed Gal
by one stroke in the final round and tied for 12th
with a 295 (7 over).
Chudy was the only other UF golfer to place
within the tournament's top 20.
Carding her best round of the tournament,
sophomore Whitney Myers also shot a 3-over-par
75 in the final round and finished with an overall
316 (28 over).

Georgia breaks


UF's 14-year


trophy streak

By ANTONIO GONZALEZ
Alligator Staff Writer
agonzalez@alligator.org

One of the longest streaks in the history of college
sports has ended.
For the first time in 14 years, UF did not win the
Southeastern Conference All-Sports Trophy. Instead, the
annual award for the best athletics program in the SEC
went to Georgia.
UF's loss snaps a streak that is unrivaled by any NCAA
Division I school in its respective conference.
No one is more disappointed with the loss than UF ath-
letics director Jeremy Foley, who had seen the Gators win
the award every year since he took the position in 1992.
"Georgia had a heck of a year," Foley said. "I was hop-
ing [the streak] would last forever, but things don't last
forever.
"We had a great run. Sometimes you just need to shake
your opponent's hand for a job well-
.-... done."
.onfence .Teams receive points for their
ference final standing in each sport 12 for
first place, 11 for second and so on.
The points are added together and divided by the num-
ber of sports a school fields to find each school's average
score.
The Bulldogs finished with a total score of 154.45, while
the Gators ended the athletic year second in the SEC at
141.05.
The New York Times Regional Newspaper.Group
awards the trophy to the best overall athletics program
in the SEC.
Georgia claimed six SEC titles this year by propeling
itself to the top in football, women's swimming, women's
track, men's tennis, men's golf and gymnastics. UF won
two SEC titles women's tennis and volleyball.
Although the Gators had a cap on the SEC for more
than a decade, the Bulldogs are no strangers to the award.
They had won it six times between 1981 and 1992, the year
before UF began its streak.
"It's a very big deal," said Georgia athletic director
Damon Evans. "It has been in the back of our minds, 'How

One last round

Senior golfers tee off for


the final time as Gators


By JENNA MARINA
Alligator Staff Writer

Or#_is a jab-jawing jokester from
Daytona Beach.
Another is second-generation
Gator from Miami.
The third is a taciturn type from
Madison, Conn.
Meet senior golfers Matt Every,
James Vargas and Brett Stegmaier.
Even though they're very differ-
ent, the trio meshes well together,
and they have formed a special
friendship over their love for wield-
ing cubs and whacking golf balls.
Every and Vargas met during
junior golf several years ago, and
Vargas said they began to spend
more time together and became bet-
ter friends once they realized they
both had committed to play at UE
Every remembers how he felt
when he encountered his current
teammate for the first time.
"He was a pretty big deal," he
said. "So it was kind of intimidat-
ing to go up and talk to him, even
though he came up to my hip."
Stegmaier was thrown into the
mix when he met Every on their
recruiting trip to UF, and he was
introduced to Vargas in 2002 when
they started playing for the Gators.
"Pretty much right away I knew

Matt was going to be a different kind
of guy," Stegmaier said. "He makes
fun of everybody, but he does it in a
loving sort of way.
"James takes a lot of crap from
Matt, and I guess from everybody.
I've had a lot of fun hanging out
with them all four years."
In addition to being teammates,
Stegmaier and Every became room-
mates during their sophomore and
senior years, which Stegmaier can
only describe as "an experience." '
While Stegmaier is the quiet one,
Every talks constantly, but their anti-
thetical qualities work well together.
After living together for two
years, there is still a debate as to who
is messier.
"He's definitely the messy one,"
Every said. "You go in our house,
walk in his room and you need a
nose plug."
Stegmaier admits he is domesti-
cally challenged but insists that
Every isn't much neater.
This week, an unlucky hotel
maid will be picking up after them
when they compete in the NCAA
Championships in Bend, Ore., be-
ginning Wednesday.
The team will try to build off of
the momentum they gained from
their first-place finish in the NCAA
West Regional Tournament on May

Andrea Morales / Alligs
UF seniors Brett Stegmaier, Matt Every and James Vargas prepare for the NCAA Championships.


20.
The Gators tied for 18th place
in 2005, tied for sixth place in 2004
and tied for fourth place in the 2003
championships.
"Being here the last three years,
having quality teams and not suc-
ceeding in the NCAAs has been
disappointing," Vargas said. "So I'm
Sure me, Matt and Brett just want to
go out on top."
As their collegiate careers come
to an end, the three will prepare to


move on to compete on the profes-
sional level. For the seniors, the tran-
sition willbe a little nerve-racking.
"Basically, once you're done here,
you're out there for a living," Vargas
said. "That's kind of the scariest
part not being able to be a kid
anymore."
Even though they will inevitably
part ways, the bond they formed at
UF can never truly be broken.
"It's been fun," Every said.
"We've had a pretty good run to-


gether. It's going to be different, but
I know we'll all keep in touch ...
I'm sure these guys will be on the
[PGA] Tour someday and hopefully
I will be, so well end up seeing each
other."
Still, Every always finds a way to
throw in that one last playful dig.
"If things don't work out for
Brett," he said, "he can always come
caddy for me."
For once, it seems that Vargas is
spared.
