* fHE PLASTIC TOMBSTONES
LINED A MILE OF ROADSIDE.

By AMANDA GOLIK
Alligator Contributing Writer
The stretch of Northwest Eighth
Avenue known as the Solar Walk ex-
hibited more than a model of the solar
system's planets on Memorial Day.
Monday, the side of the road between
34th Street and 23rd Street was crowded
with 4,114 corrugated white plastic
tombstones in a memorial depicting
the names of all the American soldiers
who have died in the wars overseas
since 2001.
The mile-long stretch displayed war
casualties in stages, from the first death
in Afghanistan up to deaths that oc-
curred just a few weeks ago in Iraq.
"One of the things that people will be
able to see by this layout is how many
Americans have been sacrificed for the
war against terrorism versus the war for
regime change," said Scott Camil, the
regional coordinator for the Veterans
for Peace who organized the demonstra-
tion.
The memorial honored the approxi-
mately 500 soldiers in Afghanistan and
the 3,600 in Iraq who have died overseas
since the war began, including five
soldiers from Gainesville, whose tomb-
stones were marked by a small, waving
American flag.
Each tombstone was labeled with a
soldier's name, age, rank, branch and
date he or she was killed.
Sections of tombstones were divided
by year and location, ranging from the
first deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq in
2001 to the most recent deaths in both
nations so far this year.

Meanwhile, the publishing company that

Blickstein worked on the manuscript alone
until the 1970s when he met Gregor Benko,
who founded the piano archives in 1966 and
offered to edit Blickstein's manuscript for free.
For more than 20 years, the duo worked
on the book sporadically, according to the
archives.
Then, in 1999, Benko received an e-mail

Nloselev said he also wants to

FSA.
He added that the association
has already saved about $10.000
by cutting "fat" out of its budget.
These savings mean FSA's uni-
versitie, will not face increased
membership dues this year.
Records show that UF paid
$30,139 in FSA dues last year.
Dues are based on student enroll-
ment and pay for the association's
full-time staff and lobbyists.

Tent City under fire


* LOCAL HOMELESS ATTEND
OUTREACH EVENTS.

By ANDREW TAN
Alligator Writer
atan@alligator.org

Regina King shuffles down
the earthen path, Publix bags and
loaves of bread in tow.
Breezing past the bicycles,
shopping carts and assorted trash,
she stops at a table to unload the
bags.
Just outside her home, a
tent, she said her life is going to
change.
King, among other local home-
less, was one of the attendees of
several outreach events in the last
few days for Main Street's Tent
City.
A local settlement of the home-
less in the forests of Southeast
Gainesville, Tent City is estimated
to house about 150 people.
The first event, a city-sponsored
resource fair off Southeast 10th
Avenue, took place Thursday.
The other, organized by the
Rev. Milford Lewis Griner of
the Alachua County Ministerial
Alliance, happened Monday.
The events came days after a
letter was sent to the Gainesville
City Commission about the possi-
ble eviction of Tent City residents.
City Commissioner Jack Donovan
said changes to Tent City-should
not be made without a discussion
from the City Commission.


Jim Hencin, Gainesville's block
grant manager, said Thursday's
event came after a suggestion from
city staff. The goal was to increase
awareness of available services for
the homeless, he said.
About 30 people came to
Thursday's fair, he said.
Arupa Freeman, coordinator
for the HOME Van, which pro-
vides clothes and food to poor lo-
cal residents, said her organization
supplied food for about 30 people
at Monday's rally.
Volunteers dis-
Local tribute food, includ-
News ing biscuits, Vienna
sausages, water and
cake to Tent City residents.
Griner said the goal of the event
was to provide moral support to
Tent City residents.
In a telephone interview, Griner
asked: "Where will the people of
Tent City go? That question must
be answered."
While many worry about the
fate of Tent City residents, King
maintains her faith that she can
make her life better.
She's tired of being homeless
and said she's over the drugs.
She lost her home, she said, be-
cause money that was supposed to
go to rent went to the "dope man"
who supplied her with cocaine.
"I'm going to go somewhere,"
King said, "and get some help."
She said she plans to go to St.
Francis House for help.
"I know I'm a good person and
I've got a good heart," she said.

Memorial emotional

MEMORIAL, from page 1
"Since starting this project, we have had to order
100 extra tombstones because 100 more Americans
have died," said Camil, a veteran of the Vietnam War.
After the graveyards labeled "Afghanistan: 2007"
and "Iraq: 2007," there, was an area left vacant for
more tombstones, then two more prophetic markers:
"Afghanistan: 2008" and "Iraq: 2008."
Gainesville resident Sally
Around Dickinson volunteered to help Camil
ainesville create the tombstones.
"As I held each one, it just struck
me that this is someone's father, grandchild or sib-
ling," Dickinson said.
The emotions were shared by those who observed
the memorial, including Gainesville residents Norris
and Nancy-Robin Moon.
"It was very effective," said Norris Moon, adding
that in one row of tombstones, three of the fallen sol-
diers listed were 18 years old.
"That could be the age of our sons," said Nancy-
Robin Moon, whose nephew recently joined the mili-
tary. "I'm just deeply saddened by this visual depic-
tion of what's going on."

Scandalous Similarities

a -(Sometimes Erotic) Celebration
of Great Pianists," Benko said, and
Mitchell's lawyer, Richard Vermut,
confirmed.
It had been about seven years
since Benko had heard from
Blickstein.
"I thought it possible that he'd
died," Benko said. "He lives in such
obscurity that there'd be no obitu-
ary."
Mitchell expressed an interest
in Pachmann, so Benko sent him a
copy of Blickstein's manuscript.
"That was the biggest mistake I
ever made in my life," Benko said.
Vermut said that from 1999 to
2000, Mitchell worked on the manu-
scriptsat Benko's request.
When Benko found Blickstein,
they discussed Mitchell possibly
joining the team.
But before he agreed, Blickstein
asked for a writing sample from
Mitchell, which was sent in
November 2000.'
Mitchell made suggestions for
improving the manuscript, one be-
ing that he attribute every word, ac-
cording to the e-mail from Mitchell,
provided by Benko.
Blickstein said he declined work-
ing with Mitchell after reading the
sample.
"It was like a C-minus term pa-
per from a junior in high school,"
Benko said.

Copies destroyed, Mitchell
left out
In February 2001, Mitchell told
Benko he decided to write his own
book.
Vermut said Mitchell gave
Indiana University Press a draft of
his book in July.2001.
Indiana University Press sent
a copy to three outside readers for
feedback.
University of Georgia music
professor Richard Zimdars, one of
the readers, said he didn't suspect
plagiarism. But he. gave a negative
review because the book didn't have
enough research, he said.
Vermut said Mitchell submitted
the final draft to the publisher in
January 2002.
"He didn't just take someone
else's work and put his name on it,"
Vermut said. "He worked on it for
over a year."
Mitchell's book, "Vladimir de
Pachmann: A Piano Virtuoso's Life
and Art," was published by the
press that November.
Blickstein said he bought a copy
and called Benko in shock after
reading it.
Benko said there were suspicious
similarities from the firstpage.
"It hit us like a ton of bricks,"
Benko said.
Benko said Mitchell listed
Blickstein's manuscript in his bib-
liography but credited it with only
one fact in the book.
In May 2003, Benko visited the
director of Indiana University Press
and told him he thought that about
half of Mitchell's information was
taken from Blickstein's work
But he said the press offered no
explanation.
Indiana University legal counsel
Michael A. Klein refused to com-
ment.
In December 2005, Benko sent
the president of Indiana University,
Adam Herbert, dozens of examples
of literary theft from the book.
One of them was from page
106 of Mitchell's book that stated,
"Dmitri Tiomkin, the pianist and
film score composer, remembered
once seeing the old maestro in a res-
taurant eating with a straw."
He also included an excerpt
from Page Three, Chapter 15, of
Blickstein's manuscript that stated,
"Dmitri Tiomkin remembered see-
ing the old maestro in a French res-
taurant eating with a straw."
According to copies of Mitchell's
book, the footnote corresponding
to the excerpt does not mention
Blickstein.
About four years later, in October
2006, the publisher withdrew


Mitchell's book, destroyed all re-
maining copies and sent Blickstein a
letter of apology, according to a copy
of the letter.
In the letter, Janet Rabinowitch,
the new director of the press, wrote
that the publishing company ac-
knowledged "the intellectual debt
it owes to your prior unpublished
manuscript" and that it didn't know
about his work or previous commu-
nications with Mitchell:
Vermut said Indiana University
Press withdrew the book "without
Mitchell's participation in the deci-
sion-making process."
Rabinowitch could not be

attempts.

Mitchell remains at UF,
Blickstein 'serves Pach-
mann'
Kyle Cavanaugh, UF's vice
president for human resources,
said Mitchell still holds a position
at UF because the allegations were
not connected to his work at the
university.
Cavanaugh said he could not
speculate about what would happen
if the allegations were true.
Derek Oppen, a former Stanford
University professor and fan of
Pachmann, said, "I don't under-
stand the University of Florida. I'd
assume that if students stole other
people's research, they would be in-
stantly expelled. UF apparently has
different rules for its employees."
According to the UF English de-
partment's "Handbook for Teaching
Assistants," if a student uses a
source without citation, the TA may
permit the student to rewrite the as-
signment with the condition that the
grade be no higher than a C or D.
The other option is to fail the stu-
dent for the assignment or the class.
Joe Glover, interim dean for the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences,
said he doesn't think the accusations
against Mitchell will tarnish UF's
credibility.
-"At this point in time, we are cer-
tainly not contemplating terminat-
ing his employment," Glover said.
"These are simply allegations."
But Blickstein said he's not
fighting for a lawsuit. The fact that
Mitchell's book is off the shelves is
"gift enough" for him, he said.
"All I want to do is serve
Pachmann," he said.
Blickstein said the scandal has
since re-inspired him to finish the
project 48 years in the making.
"I just want to get my book
published and dear Pachmann's
name," he said. "And that's all that
matters."

Editorial


Tuition mortician

Crist denies tuition

increases
Gov. Charlie Crist has all but doomed UF's chances for in-
creased tuition: Thursday, he vetoed the bill that would
allow a 5 percent statewide tuition hike.
To add insult to injury he also said the bill for UF's Tuition
Differential Program (which stemmed from the "Academic
Enhancement Program"), which would have allowed Florida
State University and the University of South Florida to increase
their tuition as well, is "doomed."
Not a word we're fond of hearing.
According to a press release from his office, Crist's reasoning
was that "this is a tight budget year, and we must live within our
means, just as the people of Florida must live within theirs."
He said students shouldn't have to face higher tuition while
Floridians are paying high property taxes and insurance rates.
But wait isn't Crist working to lower property taxes?
That's why Gainesville is facing possible budget cuts that add
up to about $7 million. And lower insurance rates were one of
Crists main platform issues when he ran for office. We'd like
to assume he hasn't given up on that already. So why can't the
savings we're supposed to receive be turned into revenue for
our state universities?
Since more than 70 percent of UF students receive Bright
Futures scholarships, the state would be handing those savings
over to its flagship university not costing students much,
contrary to what Crist thinks. A press release from Student
Government External Affairs estimated that students would
only pay an additional $220 per semester the few who actu-
ally pay tuition, at least. And "every major editorial board in the
state" supported the tuition hike, UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said.
What's a 5 percent tuition increase compared to smaller class
sizes, more advisers and more course offerings?
We just don't understand why Crist, who has done so much
good for Florida in just about every other area, continues.to
deny higher education.

No fines for Tent City landowners


Plagiarism's a touchy
subject.
As writers and
journalists, we know there's
a fine line between inter-
preting ideas and crediting
sources and flat-out stealing
someone else's writing.
It's been drilled into us
all, body and soul, that pla-
giarism is wrong. We hope
everyone agrees with us, if
on nothing else, at least on
this one point. As scholars,
we're supposed to conduct
research, form our own ideas
and write them in our own
words.
That's why we can't help
but take it personally when
someone in the UF commu-
nity is accused of plagiarism.
Mark Mitchell, managing
editor of the UF English
department's literary maga-


zine, has had his biography
on a pianist pulled from
the shelves and destroyed
because of possibly stealing
someone else's work.
Plagiarism is no small
charge. Here at UF, students
found guilty of plagia-
rism often fail the course,
although different depart-
ments have different punish-
ments. Plagiarism can ruin a
person's career in just about
any field.
So while it may be easier
to copy that passage on boll
weevils for that boring biol-
ogy paper or that paragraph
about the aftermath of the
Battle of Bunker Hill for your
American Revolutionary War
history course, think of what
it may cost you: your cred-
ibility and integrity and
quite possibly, your future.


As an unyielding optimist, I always hate to be the
bearer of bad news. However, there comes a time
when we all must face the music, no matter how
off-key
On that note, I feel obligated to make a public statement
on behalf of Gainesville city officials: My fellow citizens,
we're at war.
Gainesville city officials are entrenched against the
growing homeless population residing in the wooded area
off South Main Street, also known as Tent City. In their ef-
forts to combat this terrible problem, the officials have pro-
posed their "Final Solution" to rid Gainesville of its home-
less population at least in this part of town. Though the
homeless always inhabited the woods, living in makeshift
tents, the situation has apparently grown to levels beyond
the city's desire or control.
In its boundless compassion and infinite wisdom, the
city devised a plan that not only dears the homeless from
the land but also teaches those private property-owning,
homeless-harboring residents a lesson. No longer can
businesses and private property owners turn a blind eye
to the invasion of homeless people. Our leaders refuse to
have their residents live in the shadow of such an ominous
threat.
Officials plan to fine those who harbor homeless people
on their property up to $2,000 a day for violating this or-
dinance against the Tent City dwellers. In addition to this
hefty fine, the Gainesville Police Department will arrest any
unauthorized individuals who dare to stay on the land.
Yes, we shall fight them on the land, in the air we
could smoke them out and by slamming those kind
property owners with fines worth more than my tuition.
After the city displaces up to 150 people, it will be able
to shuffle the offenders to a new destination. Oh wait, silly
me I assumed that despite contemplating cutting the


homeless program funding,
the city would be able to find
alternative shelter accommo-
dations. They'll have to take
Sa rain check on that part of the
planning.
Stephanie Rosenberg According to advocates for
letters@alligator.org the homeless, shelters don't
possess enough beds to sup-
port such an influx of people.
In remarks made to The Gainesville Sun, leaders for these
organizations believe such aggressive tactics will only fur-
ther aggravate the dilemma.
Some UF students even decided to take a stand against
such cruel treatment by creating a group rallying for a
student-run homeless shelter. The group, Gator Homeless
Coalition, organized a protest through Facebook on
Monday in front of Tent City to support and encourage the
homeless.
Though I agree that a population of homeless people
at Tent City creates unsanitary conditions and may cause
increases in crime, an extreme measure, such as one that
penalizes private property owners, may cross the line.
As much as I truly appreciate the Gainesville city offi-
cials for lookifig after my safety and my city's cleanliness, I
can't help but wonder if their method is really the best pos-
sible solution for the community.
If they believe this proposal could work, then we have to
keep the faith. Gainesville city official smust have agonized
over finding a fair resolution to this predicament. I'm sure
they had many sleepless nights, lying awake in their air-
conditioned rooms, on top of their 300-thread-count cotton
sheets and Serta mattresses.

Letter to the Editor
Hookah just another type of tobacco
Anew hookah lounge in Gainesville, mentioned in
the avenue's Thursday's article "New hookah lounge
smells sweet," is just more of the trend of marketing
tobacco to youth.
In spite of the Master Settlement Agreement, with
which tobacco companies compensate state govern-
ments for smoking-related medical costs,and provide
funding to help reduce smoking in the United States,
tobacco corporations have escalated their marketing
efforts targeting young adults and teens. Quite simply,
the younger someone is when he or she gets addicted
to nicotine, the longer he or she can buy products.
Flavorings in hookah tobacco are no different from
R. J. Reynolds' marketing brightly colored packs of
flavored cigarettes. The risks of hookah are no dif-
ferent than the risks of other forms of tobacco use.
There is no safe way to use tobacco. Nicotine migrates
through mouth tissue whether you inhale or not. Even
nonsmokers who are exposed to hookah smoke are at
risk. Hookahs are just another brightly colored ribbon
to attract new nicotine addicts.

former Alachua County tobacco prevention coordi-
nator

Gas tax would be good for environment


economics is a cdrious subject.
The invisible hand seems like
magic at times the way it
almost always pushes toward the
highest quality, cheapest and most
efficient products and processes.
Anyone who takes an introduc-
tory macroeconomics course can
demonstrate with a few simple
graphs how the abolition of mini-
mum wage, price-gouging laws,
import quotas, tariffs, subsidies and
most taxes would greatly benefit
all sectors of society by eliminat-
ing the deadweightt loss" placed
on society.
I mostly agree with those conclu-
sions, but I think the proposed 5-
cents-per-gallon gas tax, which the
Gainesville City Commission has
approved, is a good thing espe-
cially for the environment.
One of global capitalism's most
appalling failures is the lack of ac-

- including Homo sapiens we'll
all be unimaginably poor.

UF MEN'S GOLF

Gators return to Virginia for shot at national title


By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Writer

For the UF men's golf team, hopes of a
national title may rest on a case of dejh vu.
When the No. 7 Gators head to the NCAA
Championships this Wednesday, the team
will hope to repeat some October success.
The team will travel to the par-70,
6,809-yard Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in
Williamsburg, Va., the site of a UF victory
earlier this fall.
The Gators won the Preview Invitational
there in convincing fashion, finishing four
strokes ahead of the nearest team.
"This golf course favors our style of


game," UF coach Buddy Alexander said.
"It's short and tricky, and that's where we
excel. This is what its all about. We're fa-
miliar with the golf course, and we've had
success here fairly recently, so we feel good
heading up there to play."
After tying for second at the NCAA East
Regional in Alpharetta, Ga., the Gators are
slated as the No. 5 seed in this week's up-
coming tournament.
The team will face a familiar 29-team
field, as the'Gators have faced all but one of
the squads (Louisville).
Twenty-one of the nation's top-25 teams
will be in attendance. -The Gators have
posted a 42-29-2 (.589) record against these


teams this season.
UF will be led by Southeastern
Conference Player of the Year Billy Horschel,
who is coming off a tie for
first in East Regional indi-
vidual play.
"I am definitely con-
fident," Horschel said.
"I like our chances a lot.
I think we have a good
chance of going in there
Horschel and pulling off the win."
After a rough spring, junior Manuel
Villegas seems tobe back on track. Alexander
chose to sit the junior during the SEC
Championships, and Villegas responded.


He tied for 32ndin the East Regional his.
highest since he won the Gator Invitational
in February.
Behind him will be junior Tyler Brown,
who will also look to build off a tie for 32nd
in his last outing.
Sophomore Toby Ragland will play in the
No. 4 spot after a rough outing in the East
Regional, where he ended tied for 50th.
SFreshman Tim McKenney will round out
the lineup, in a return to the course whe~1e
earned his first collegiate top-20 finish.
The Gators will aim for their fifth na-
tional title.
Last year the team narrowly missed that
mark, finishing second.

Maybe it has something to do
with the fan club. Maybe it's the
smile. Or maybe it's just the 6-foot-
3,265-pound frame.
For junior All-American Wes
Stockbarger, it seems to be a lot
of things. And it all came to-
gether at the NCAA East Regional
Championships in Gainesville last
weekend.
Stockbarger led the way for the
UF track and field teams, setting an
East Regional record in the discus
with a mark of 61.39m/201-5.
The men took second overall
in the meet with 56 points, while


Florida State grabbed the title with
91. The women finished third over-
all with 49 points.
"I smile 23 hours and 59 minutes
a day," Stockbarger said. "You just
need to walk through life happy. It
helped being at ease and coming
out here and just letting my body
do thework."
Stockbarger was one of the
many athletes competing for a
chance to participate in the NCAA
Championships, which take place
,in two weeks in Sacramento, Calif.
Among the other qualifiers for
the Gators were freshman Calvin
Smith, who finished second in the
400-meter race with a time of 45.60
seconds, and sophomore Dennis


Martin, who finished fourth in the
110-meter hurdles.
Sophomore Willie Perry ad-
vanced in the 100-meter and 200-
meter dashes.
Perhaps the
l highlight of the
weekend on
the men's side
Track& Field was the 4x400-
meter relay, in
which the UF team of Smith, Carlos
Phillips, Bernard Middleton and
Eric Alberter captured the title with
a mark of 3 minutes, 6.31 seconds.
"I'm very proud of the guys,"
UF coach Mike Holloway said. "We
came out, competed and sent guys
to nationals. That was the goal, and

the women was an upset victory by

The Gators will send a total of 15
athletes to the NCAAs, including
eight on the women's side.
"The whole program took a big
step forward today," interim head
coach Steve Lemke said.

TENNIS PLAY CONCLUDES: UF

Freshman Jesse Levine was de-
feated in his first loss of the year
by Washington's 64'-ranked Alex
Slovic, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1. Levine made
it further in singles play than any
other freshman in the nation.
Levine and junior Greg Ouellette
were defeated in doubles play by
Middle Tennessee State's Marco
Born and Andreas Siljestrom.
On the women's side, Megan
Alexander and Csilla Borsanyi won
their round of 16 matches but could
not get any further in singles play.
No. 39 Alexander was defeated
by USC's fifth-ranked Lindsey-
Nelson.
Borsanyi lost to No. 40 Tracy Lin

"The defense made a lot of good plays behind
me," Keating said. "Those guys really helped me
out with those big catches in the gaps."
UF got off to a hot start as Figueroa singled to
open the first, before stealing second and reaching
third on a sacrifice bunt by Barnes.
LaPorta followed that up with a blast over the
left-centerfield wall to take a 2-0 lead. Despite their
promising start, the Gators managed just one hit in
the next six innings off USC starter Mike Cisco, who
earned the win with seven innings of work.
"He started locating his pitches better," LaPorta
said. "That first at-bat he left one over the plate. But
after that he was just hitting his spots, and he got in


a groove. You can't let a pitcher get in a groove like
that because they'll shut a team down."
Meanwhile, the Gamecocks picked up three runs
in the second on a pair of singles and added two
more in the sixth on a walk and error.
"The defense made a lot of good plays
behind me. Those guys really helped me
out with those big catches in the gaps."

UF wouldn't threaten again until the desperate

Slugger projected high in draft

LAPORTA, from page 16

LaPorta swatted a UF-record 74 home runs and drove in-206
RBI, with a career batting average of .323.
His final year, was LaPorta's best. He batted .402, hit 20
home runs and drove in 52 RBI..
"He's a very special young man," Coach Pat McMahon
said in a teary-eyed press conference. "He's a tremendous
worker, and I am privileged (to have been his coach)."
The next step for LaPorta is now the MLB Draft. He has
been selected twice before by the Chicago Cubs out of
high school and'by the Boston Red Sox following his junior
season.
The decision to come back after the Red
Sox selected him in the 14th round last
year appears to have been a good choice.
Baseball America considers him to be one
of the best power hitters in the draft and a
definite first-rounder.
For now, the two-time SEC Player of the
LaPorta, Year is reflecting on the ups and downs the
team experienced during his stay.
Just two years ago, the team made the College World
Series in Omaha, Neb. and got all the way to the national title
series. LaPorta led the nation in home runs that year.
But this year was the second in a row that the team failed
to finish above .500 and make the NCAA Tournament.
"I 1kok at it all as a growing experience," he said. "If it
wasn't for adversity that you face, you wouldn't be there in
whatever it is you do.
"I thank God that I was lucky enough to play baseball at
the University of Florida."

UF's season, NCAA hopes end with loss


* THE GAME ENDED WITH
MATT LAPORTA ON DECK.

Alligator Staff Writer
mmcall@alligator.org

HOOVER, Ala. Just one
out away from elimination at
the Southeastern Conference
Tournament, the UF baseball
team seemed to be headed for


a Hollywood finish.
Down 5-3 to South Carolina
in the ninth inning, the. Gators
had runners on second and
third and sophomore Avery
Barnes at the plate.
What provided the drama
was the fact that Matt LaPorta,
arguably the greatest slugger
in UF history, was standing a
few feet away in the on-deck
circle.
LaPorta had already


homered once in the game
- a two-run blast in the first
- and hi-s presence had all of

Baseball said. "I saw

and I said;-

After snagging a line drive, UF senior Matt LaPorta attempts to turn a double play during the
Gators' 5-3 loss to South Carolina in the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Friday.


Unfortunately for LaPorta
and the Gators, Barnes
grounded out, ending the
game and UF's season. The
squad fell to 29-30, one win
short of being eligible for
an at-large bid in the NCAA
Tournament.
The loss marked the second
time in three days that the
Gamecocks (42-17) bested the
Gators, and it left UF trying
not to think about how close it
came to an NCAA berth.
S"It's definitely hard not to
do that, but we're proud of
what we've done this year,"
shortstop Cole Figueroa said.
"It's tough that we came so
close and it's out of reach."
Figueroa provided three of
the Gators' five hits, including
an RBI single in the ninth to
pull his team within two.
Reliever Patrick Keating
started for UF, allowing 5 runs
in 5 1/3 innings in his first-
ever start.
Steven Porter, Josh
Edmondson and Kevin
Chapman held he Gamecocks
scoreless in relief.
"I thought we pitched
our hearts out," UF coach
Pat McMahon said. "Patrick
Keating, in his first collegiate
start, gave us everything he
could."
Keating was aided by a
few spectacular plays in the
outfield, as Chris Petrie and

HOOVER, Ala. Matt LaPorta's career
didn't end quite the way he wanted it to.
Sitting on deck in the ninth inning Friday,
with the tying run in scoring position, the
UF senior watched helplessly as second
baseman Avery Barnes grounded out to
seal a 5-3 loss to South Carolina. The loss
eliminated the Gators from the Southeastern
Conference Tournament and ended their
season.

"I just told him that he did great,"
LaPorta said. "He really battled up there at

that situation."
It was a telling sign of what LaPorta was

His example will not be forgotten by

falls short


of World


Series bid
By JEFF MILLER
Alligator Writer

Despite late-game heroics to
push the series to its limit, UF left
super-regional play at Texas A&M
one win short of the school's first-
ever entry into the NCAA Softball
World Series.
Facing elimination, senior
Lauren Roussell capped a come-
from-behind victory with a walk-
off home run in the first game of
Saturday's doubleheader, but the
Gators couldn't carry that momen-
tum over to game three, falling to
the Aggies 2-0. The loss eliminated
UF from the NCAA Tournament,
bringing their season to a close.
"(The Aggies) just kept taking
their hacks and kept finding ways
to get things
^ i done," UF coach
th A 2- Tim Walton
U o t said. "Our team
deserves a lot of
credit also. They
played their
Walton hearts out. They
gave everything
they had.
"Today wasn't good enough,
but to get where we have this sea-
son, we have accomplished a lot
with our program."
The Gators' season was a year
of firsts: UF set a new team record
with 50 wins, while sophomore
pitcher Stacey Nelson set an indi-
vidual team record with a 34-win
season. UF set records in eight
other categories.
It was also the Gators' first su-
per-regional appearance in team
history.
Friday, the Aggies put UF in an
early hole with a 2-0 shutout.
