Coming Out Week concludes with parade

Students from Gainesville High School's Students Teaching Open Mindedness and Pride club march in
the Pride Parade on University Avenue on Saturday.
By HEATHER STRANGE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Members of local pride or-
ganizations and their support-
ers cheered in celebration while
marching down University Avenue
on Saturday, holding colorful signs
and waving water noodles, as part
of Gainesville's sixth annual Pride
The parade preceded the 15th
annual Pride Festival, and both
events celebrated the conclusion
of Gainesville's Pride Week and
National Pride Coming Out Week.
The parade, which began at
University Avenue and Seventh
Street and ended at the Downtown
Community Plaza, was led by
members of Gainesville High
School's Students Teaching Open
Mindedness and Pride club, or
They held a large ban-
ner that read "STOMP OUT
Representatives from organiza-
tions such as Wild Iris Books and

Church also marched in the pa-
Once the parade reached Main
Street, people standing on the
sidewalks waved and cheered as
it marched by.
At the festival, hundreds of
people roamed around the plaza
getting airbrushed tattoos, face
paint and supporting the different
groups at the event.
About 1,000 people were ex-
pected to have come and gone
throughout the day, said Staci
Fox, board member of the Pride
Community Center of North
About 40 vendors were at the
festival, said Kim Kelley, board
member of the center.
The Human Rights Council of
North Florida also had a booth
at the event with petitions to get
gender identity and expression on
code of ordinance.

selves to the people as a

of the crash. Neither of the students was wear-

UF had planned to trim a total

UF already cut the extra $4.8
million, a memo from UF President

Man charged in
By APRIL DUDASH
The Gainesville Police Department has arrested
and charged a man with the sexual battery of three
Gainesville women since August.
Police Detective Joseph Mayo arrested Tyrone
Williams, 22, of Florida City, a police report said.
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith Kameg said Williams
associated himself with three rape cases that in-
volved separate victims. None of the women were
UF students, he said.
Kameg said a female rape victim spotted
Williams walking in the Depot Avenue area
Sunday and recognized him.
Public She told a friend to notify the po-
Safety lice, and GPD Officer Mike Denmark
responded to the call, Kameg said.
Detectives Randy Roberts and Mayo were
called to the scene.
Williams was charged with three counts of
sexual battery and one count of false imprison-
ment, Kameg said. False imprisonment is illegally
holding a person against their will.
"In all of the cases, while raping the women, he
beat the women," Kameg said.
The most recent alleged rape took place Tuesday
in northeast Gainesville, Kameg said.
Police alleged Williams was involved in an Oct.
8 rape attempt as well, he said.
The female victim who spotted Williams was al-
legedly sexually assaulted in August, Kameg said.
Williams allegedly held the victim down and
repeatedly punched her in the face during the as-
sault, the report stated.
Inside Williams' backpack, police found a ski
mask and gloves, which linked him to the rape,
Kameg said. He said Williams has been in the
Gainesville area for about six months.
His first alleged rape took place in early August
in southeast Gainesville.
Police suspect there are other victims who
haven't spoken up.
"A person like this, who's this young the
thought of him escalating was very high," Kameg
"If he is beating women that badly, raping
women, it only gets worse from there."

Men, women and children removed

About 400 people gathered at the

Gandhi's grandson to speak about peaceful change
By HEATHER STRANGE
Alligator Contributing Writer
Wanting to promote nonviolence
and peace, Mohandas "Mahatma"
Gandhi's grandson travels the
world teaching the philosophy of
India's legendary leader. Tonight,
his journey will bring him to UF.
Arun Gandhi will open UF's
Kaleidoscope: Asian and Asian
American Awareness Month. The
speech, sponsored by Accent,
Student Government's speakers
bureau, and Kaleidoscope will
begin at 7:30 p.m. and will be fol-
lowed by a question-and-answer
session and a reception.
While growing up in South
Africa, Gandhi began to reflect
on what his grandfather, who
protested the British occupation of
India through nonviolent means,
He also considered the work his
parents were doing for nonviolent
He felt inspired and thought he
could do something, too.
In 1957 he met his wife in India.
She was also very keen on working
with oppressed people, he said. He
moved to India because the South
African government wouldn't
allow her to
return to South
Africa with him,
time in India,
Arun Gandhi Center for Social
Unity in 1968.
Teaming up with his wife and some
friends, they worked for the poor
and oppressed people.
Gandhi moved to the United
States in 1987 to write a book on
prejudice. Once people heard who
he was, he began receiving invita-
tions to speak about his grandfa-
ther and his philosophy.
In 1991, he founded the M.K.
Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence,
which was moved from Christian
Brothers University in Memphis,
Tenn., to the University of Rochester
in New York state this year.
He opened the institute to pro-
mote and teach people the Gandhi
method of nonviolence and peace.
"It's been very successful judg-
ing on the number of invitations I
get to go out and do these programs
all over the country, in fact, all over
the world." Gandhi said.
To mark his grandfather's 50th
memorial anniversary and Martin
Luther King Jr.'s 30th memorial an-
niversary, Gandhi helped launch A
Season for Non-Violence in 1998.
Since that first event, it has be-
come an annual feature with more

SHCC due to begin offering flu vaccinations today
By LINDSAY SMITH
Alligator Contributing Writer
It lurks inside of your damp laundry, it
watches you from the mucus membranes of
your friend's nose, and it hides quietly on the
door handle to your apartment.
It's back. It's the flu.
Luckily there's hope. The Student Health
Care Center is kicking off its influenza cam-
paign today by offering vaccinations to UF
students, staff and faculty from 8 a.m. to 11:30
a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The cost for the flu shot is $5 for students
and $25 for employees.
"A $5 flu shot is a great deal, and
the fact that it's right on campus
is so convenient."
UF journalism junior
"A $5 flu shot is a great deal, and the fact
that it's right on campus is so convenient,"
said Wendy Alexaitis, a UF journalism junior.
Alexaitis has received a flu shot every year
from the Student Health Care Center since at-
"In high school, I had the flu," she said. "I
was glued to my bed for an entire week, and I
barely had enough energy to move. Plus, I was
knee-deep in homework."
She said the worst part about the flu is "the
languid feeling you have where you can't
do anything" and spending the whole time
watching bad television.
The health care center's Web site states
that people at the highest risk of catching the
flu include those with chronic illness, such as
asthma, diabetes and hypertension, people
age 50 and older and health care workers and
students with direct patient contact.
Alexaitis believes that she caught the flu
from another student.
Randi Smith, a graduate teaching assistant
at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, is
aware of the risk of catching the flu on cam-
"The environment we work in is condu-
cive to transferring colds and the flu easily,"
"When I get sick, my doctor frequently
blames germs from my students' papers."
Additionally, she said that the attendance
in her class drops as the flu spreads through-
out the classroom.
Grades go down when students are sick
because they sleep instead of finishing assign-
ments or attending class, Smith said.

Tuition increases won't
make up for budget cuts
Friday was a busy day for the Florida Legislature, but
at least it threw UF a bone a $4.8 million bone. UF
expected to see its budget cut by $26.9 million, but the
Legislature only cut $22.1 million.
We're happy to see that.
A technology fee was also approved. Students will have to
pay it Bright Futures won't cover it so students should
have input on how it is spent. Students shouldn't have to
shell out for computers on public university campuses, but
someone has to. The universities can't afford it, and appar-
ently the Legislature can't either, so that leaves us, the students.
Technology isn't cheap, and we've accepted that.
The Legislature also approved a 5 percent tuition increase
that would go into effect in the spring, and it approved a plan
that would increase tuition based on rises in inflation.
We said last week that we're wary of this.
If this had been implemented back in 1987, tuition would
have risen by 77 percent by now. But over that 20-year span,
tuition has actually risen by 214 percent. Pretty substantial dif-
ference, isn't it?
Unless you don't have Bright Futures, this increase probably
won't mean much to you. Hell, if you don't have Bright Futures,
it still probably won't mean much to you because inflation usu-
ally only rises a couple of percentage points per year last
year, it rose by 2.6 percent, which would have added less than
$2 per credit.
But the point is, increasing tuition based on inflation will not
bring in much money. If the Legislature sits on its laurels and
won't increase tuition otherwise, we'll have a problem. Sure,
UF's budget wasn't cut as much as predicted, but it was still cut.
by $22.1 million.
It would take about a 58 percent increase in inflation to make
up for that and no one wants that.
The Time is Now
In case you didn't realize,
climate change is a pretty
big deal. So big a deal,
that Al Gore won the Nobel
Peace Prize for his work to
raise awareness about global
warming. He shares the prize
with the United Nations'
Intergovernmental Panel on
President Bush praised
Gore for his win, but White
House spokesman Tony Fratto
said Bush would not feel any
pressure to adopt caps on
greenhouse gas emissions,
something Gore has strongly
advocated. That's too bad.
But then again, Republican
lobbyists wouldn't let a mea-
sly Nobel Peace Prize winner
affect their agendas.
The Bush administration
has also made many environ-
mental acts less stringent than
they were in the past for
instance, the Clear Skies Act of
2003, which allows for more
pollution than the Clean Air
Act, which was passed in 1963
and most recently amended
So it's up to us.
One motto of environmen-
talism is, "Think globally, act
locally." Our generation needs
to embrace this now, while
we still can not once we've

SG works hard; Alligator unfairly bashes
Remember the time when you wanted
Subway but you didn't have any cash on
you, so you starved? I do. Thankfully, Kevin
Reilly changed that with "tangible results,"
and now Gators can use their credit and
debit cards on campus.
And didn't you give Student Government
a LAUREL for its "tangible results" when it
installed more blue lights on campus? Do
you know who the chairwoman of that com-
mittee was? Kellie Dale. While her friends
were out having fun; she was doing walk-
throughs on campus with the University
The Alligator's coverage of SG is always
the same unreasonable and unwarranted.
When new SG officials take office (every se-
mester), it immediately reports their lack of
capability. Go through your archives before
you print articles you'll be hard-pressed
to find someone who gets a third-floor office'
without working for tangible results.
SG-ers are not dirty politicians. They're
the people sitting next you in class. While
you have to study for exams and write your
papers, they're responsible for a multimil-
lion-dollar Activity & Service Fee budget.
When the Alligator unfairly bashes SG
(because it is exceedingly liberal and thinks
politics are inherently bad) it's no wonder
only a very small minority of students will-
ingly withstand its abuse. Stop bashing SG
and misrepresenting the great people who
are trying to do great things.
Not every SG official has been of the
same caliber as Kevin Reilly and Kellie Dale,
but I can assure you that their time in office
won't disappoint you.

Family, UF teammates
recall Guilford's spirit
By NICK ZACCARDI
Alligator Staff Writer
They called him "Sunshine."
Michael Guilford, a UF sophomore and de-
fensive back for UF's football team, received
the nickname because of his long, blond
hair and resemblance to quarterback Ronnie
"Sunshine" Bass from the movie "Remember
But the connection was more than super-
"Michael lived life to the fullest every day,"
said Guilford's mother, Janice Watson. "They
named him 'Sunshine' because of his hair, but
it was his personality, too. If he was in a group,
everything was better because he was there."
Guilford, 19, died after his motorcycle hit
a median early Friday morning, which sent
shock waves across UF's campus and through-
out Guilford's hometown of Quincy, Fla.
Guilford started his football career as a
quarterback for Blountstown High School for
three years. When he was a high school junior,
he played in a state championship game at
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.
Greg Jordan, Blountstown's football coach,
said his current players honored Guilford by
wearing his high-school number, 13, on their
wristbands for their Friday night game.
The loss has had a communitywide effect,
with more than 100 people showing up at his
family's Quincy home Friday morning.
Guilford's funeral is expected to take place
early this week in his hometown.
"There's probably no churches that are
going to be big enough to house the whole
thing," Jordan said. "They'll probably have to
do it at the school."
News of the accident has been featured on
"We're going to remember him as a fun-
loving kid passionate, full of life," Watson
Guilford gained fame during the Gators'
practices leading up to the BCS National
Championship game in January. He helped
the team practice by playing as Troy Smith,
quarterback for Ohio State University.
"He was an outstanding, quality young
man that was loved, respected and admired
by all of us," UF coach Urban Meyer wrote in
"There's probably no churches
that are going to be big enough to
house the whole thing."
Blountstown High School football coach
"His unselfish efforts on helping his team-
mates getting ready to play every week were
only a glimpse of the person he was," Meyer
In addition to playing the guitar and
drums, Guilford took pride in learning oppos-
ing teams' plays every week to prepare UF's
defense, although he never had the chance to
play in an actual game.
"He was very competitive," said Sean
Cronin, a graduate assistant who runs the
practice squad's offense.
"He had a fire and was the leader," Cronin
said. "He was the core of that group. He
was the heart and soul of our scout team."
Cronin said he last saw Guilford at a dinner
honoring the practice squad Thursday night.

UF defensive back Michael Guilford leaves the field during a Gators' practice in March
at the UF practice field.
The video staff presented a tape of the prac-
tice squad team's highlights, including a shot
of Guilford holding his hand up in a peace
sign and smiling.
Cronin spoke to Guilford for the last time
before leaving the dinner.
"He thanked me for the highlight video
and said thanks for the dinner," Cronin said.
"I said, 'No, thank you. I really appreciate ev-
erything you do for us.' It just means a lot that
I was able to thank him."
Guilford later played video games at a
teammate's apartment, Cronin said. Guilford
always wore a helmet when riding his bike
but left it with his belongings at the apartment
before taking a late-night ride, Cronin said.
Cronin told UF players about Guilford's
death Friday morning.
"A lot of them were just shocked and prob-
ably didn't have any reaction until after they
got off the phone," Cronin said. "They prob-
ably broke down afterward."
Tim Tebow, UF quarterback, missed calls
while he slept but woke up to hear the news.
"I was just in shock," Tebow said. "Right
when I heard it I was like, 'What? Say it again.'
I felt horrible and sick about it. The first thing I
did was pray for him and his family."

Slonina's friends try to cope in days following loss
By KIM WILMATH
Alligator Staff Writer
In the past two days, Allison
Cecchini has called her best friend
17 times, though she knows Ashley
Slonina will never pick up her
Cecchini said she just wants to
hear Slonina's voice, even if it's
only a recording.
Slonina, a UF political science
junior from Lynn Haven, died early
Friday morning in a motorcycle ac-
cident with Michael Guilford, a UF
sophomore and defensive back for
UF's football team.
Photo Courtesy of Allison Cecchini
Ashley Slonina, left, and her friend Allison Cecchini, a UF sopho-
more, pose in this undated photo.
Cecchini, a UF sophomore,
heard the news of Slonina's death
later that same morning.
"I didn't even know what to do,"
she said. "I didn't know whether to
brush my teeth first or put my hair
up. I was walking around in circles.
I had to leave the apartment, but I
didn't know how."
Cecchini went to Slonina's
townhouse to check on Slonina's
dogs, a chihuahua named Bella and
a puggle a pug and poodle mix
- named Bitty.
She said she didn't know how
long the dogs had been alone be-
cause Slonina didn't have a room-
mate. Cecchini had planned to
move in with her next year.
She said she was at the town-
house when Slonina's parents ar-
Her dad, Jim Slonina, was calm
and collected, Cecchini said. It was
difficult to look at Slonina's mom,
Rose, because she looks so much
like her daughter, Cecchini said.
Jim and Rose Slonina could not
be reached for comment.
"I couldn't leave her room,"
Cecchini said. "I just sat there ex-
pecting her to jump out and laugh
at us like this is a big joke."
She said everything in the town-
house was exactly as Slonina left it.
Clean clothes she would never
wear sat folded on her bed. Next to
a bowl of Halloween candy in the
kitchen was a stack of mail waiting
to be sent.
A Halloween welcome mat was
left unopened in the garage.
Cecchini unwrapped it and
placed it outside Slonina's' front
What Cecchini wanted to find
most were photos from a con-
cert she and Slonina went to on
She said Slonina tried to give her
the developed pictures Tuesday,
but Cecchini told her she'd get
them from her later.
After searching Slonina's town-
house, Cecchini said she finally
found the negatives for the photo-
graphs she'll keep forever.
"I don't ever want to
"I don't ever want to forget her,"
Cecchini said she wanted to
do something to keep thoughts of
Slonina close to her every day.
So with a prick of a needle, she
said she put the memory of her best
friend under her own skin.
Cecchini's new tattoo is a replica
of the one Slonina had on her back
- a winged heart. Cecchini added
a halo, Slonina's initials and "Rev.
21:4" to hers.
The Bible passage it refers to
reads, "God shall wipe away all
the tears from their eyes, and there
shall be no more death, neither sor-
row, nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former
things are passed away."
Janae Hart, a UF communica-
tion sciences and disorders senior
and another close friend of Slonina,
picked up Slonina's personal be-
longings from a funeral home.
Hart also drove Slonina's white
Lexus SUV back to Slonina's par-
ents' home in Lynn Haven,
"It was kind of healing to be in
her car and feel her with me," she
said. "I did a lot of thinking of all
the times we had in that car."
Hart met Slonina at a skating
rink in middle school. They at-
tended A. Crawford Mosley High
School, Gulf Coast Community
College and UF together.
For now, Hart said she's trying
to stay strong for Slonina's family.
"I have to do what I have to do to
make this right for everyone else,"
she said. "I can come in later."
Remembering the good times
makes it easier to postpone her
grieving, and she said she has plen-
ty of memories to choose from.
Hart said she's also called and
text messaged Slonina several times
since she died, spilling secrets and
inside jokes to a phone.
Like Hart, Cecchini knows
she'll never get a response, but
she said Slonina couldn't have
left her with a better last text mes-
sage: "Just wanted to say LOVE

Center offers aerial tours of Gainesville at open house
* FLIGHTS WENT OVER UF
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF students and Gainesville resi-
dents had the chance to gain a new
perspective of UF on Saturday.
Evan Donoghue, a UF graduate
student in physics, said everything
looks different from 2,000 feet up
in the air.
Donoghue participated in a "dis-
covery flight" at the University Air
Center's second-annual open house

$59 and last about 20 minutes, were

Bill Pokorny, general manager
of the center, said the open house
was held to generate interest in the
center's flight school.
"We want people to come out
and experience the thrill of flight,"
Between 100 and 150 people
participated in the open house in
2006, and Pokorny said he expected
a similar turnout this year.
Besides flying, people who at-
tended the event had the opportu-
nity to learn how to obtain a pilot's
license, view about 30 planes on
display, tour the center, eat free food
and use a Microsoft computer flight
Pokorny said the air center of-
fered the open house as a commu-
nity service, not a fundraiser.
The $59 charge helped pay for
the instructor's time, fuel and main-
tenance of the planes, but the actual
cost of a "discovery" flight is about

In its yearly effort to increase safety
awareness at UF, the University Police
Department will release its 2007 safety
brochure in hard copy Tuesday.
The safety brochure is called "Together

It will feature crime statistics for crimes
from the previous academic year that took
place on and near UF facilities.
It also contains traffic safety tips, victim
assistance information, crime prevention
pointers. There is also information in the

Pink paper wings with glitter
spots and hot pink, pipe cleaner
antennae rounded out Isabella
Gomes' butterfly costume.
Isabella, 6, was one of many
children to attend the Florida
Museum of Natural History's sec-
ond-annual ButterflyFest held on
Saturday and Sunday.
More than 6,000 people were
expected to attend the weekend-
Every hour about 20 monarch
butterflies were released. All were
tagged to follow their migration
patterns to Mexico.
Vendors, many who had- little
relation to butterflies, were selling
their wares, including plants, jew-
elry, wall art and pottery.
The children's event tent was
the center of most of the activity.
About 40 children colored with
great concentration in order to cre-
ate the perfect butterfly flag.
Amy Brote, a volunteer at the
event, is 50, but that didn't stop her
from dressing up for the event.
"We're just trying to get
children interested in sav-

the animals in it."

butterfly costume handing out
information cards, which listed the

"Sometimes I wish we had the

A television broadcast contributed

Forward hopes to be two-sport athlete at UF
HOOPS, from page 18
If Allen's high school experience is any indication,
the former Milton High School Panther should have
no problem adjusting to any role.
As a senior, he averaged 24.7 points, 12.2 rebounds
and 3.5 blocks per contest en route to becoming the
runner-up of Florida's Mr. Basketball, finishing only
behind current teammate Nick Calathes.
However, Allen's versatile talents are not only lim-
ited to hardwood.
The freshman plans to be a pitcher for UF's base-
ball team, and he claims to throw a fastball in the high
80s to lower 90s.
Allen said splitting time between the two sports
will not be an issue.
"During the season, I'm going to keep my arm in
shape and throw," he said. "But being a pitcher, you
don't have the same responsibilities that a normal
position player would. So it will be possible. I mean,
people have done it in the past."
Allen has had a lot to adjust to since arriving in
Gainesville. Aside from the rap music his teammates
enjoy playing during practice, Allen has had to listen
to the jokes and sarcasm pointed in his direction.
"During the season, I'm going to keep my
arm in shape and throw."
"Whenever I say something, someone will say:
'Don't listen to him. He's country,'" he said. "But I
don't listen to them they know I know what I'm
doing out there."

Just as Rutgers wasn't a national championship team last

Did the Bulls really receive 11 first-place votes in the
Associated Press poll and three in the coaches' poll?
Look, I know there are two ways to vote in a poll. You
can either vote by who you think is the best or you can vote
based on performance and who has earned it the most?
Apparently, the AP poll is loaded with writers who prefer

Does anyone really think USF is better than Oklahoma
What about Boston College, who is also undefeated?
The Bulls aren't even the best team in the state.
I don't care how many losses the Gators have, would you
really put money on USF if they played UF? Of course not.
I mean, we're talking about a directional school named
after a part of a state it isn't even in. I'm from South Florida,
and last I checked, Tamhpa isn't a part of the region.
Unfortunately for the Bulls, the polls won't be too kind if
and when they lose.
Not only will a loss put them in jeopardy of not winning
the sixth-best conference in America, they'll drop so fast in
the polls they'll forget they were ever ranked so high.
So cherish it while it lasts, Bulls fans.

* THE FRESHMAN LEARNED THE
VALUE OF HARD WORK ON A FARM.
By DANNY KLEIN
Alligator Staff Writer
Adam Allen has no problem admitting
Raised in the humble surroundings of
Milton, Fla., the freshman forward spent his
childhood nurturing his love for basketball
amid the presence of cows and hard work.
With a farm as his home environment,
Allen grew up learning lessons through
strenuous chores. He cites 'work ethic' as
his most avid feature, a value he picked up
from days of working in the field.
"On the weekend you would have hay
to do or things around the barn, build
stuff with your hands and stuff like that,"
Allen said. "When you work out in the
tough sun and you have to concentrate to
do something, it makes working hard that
much easier. When I get into a gym, I'm just
happy to be playing basketball, and I have
no problem working hard at it."
Allen, one of five scholarship freshmen
on the roster, hopes to bring his tough per-
sonality and style of play to the Gators in
the upcoming season.
UF coach Billy Donovan said the 6-foot-
8, 206-pounder may make an immediate
"Adam is a hard-nose, competitive,
tough kid," Donovan
said. "He has great en-
ergy, great effort, he's
physical, tough, and just
gives his all. ... I don't
think that there's any
question with his energy
and his toughness that
he's going to play."
Just how much Allen will get to play has
yet to be determined. On a team filled with
question marks, positions on the court are
still up for grabs.
"The biggest thing for him, because of
our team, is that he may get caught playing
a couple of positions for us, and I always
get concerned with young guys, because
that's when thinking becomes involved,"

Burleigh earns 300th win
By KARL HYPPOLITE
With one swift kick, Megan Kerns
helped UF soccer coach Becky Burleigh
In the 46th minute of the Gators' match
against Mississippi on Friday, Kerns scored
from 5 yards Aint on a cross from Stacy
The junior's goal gave the Gators a 1-0
victory and Burleigh her 300th career vic-
The momentum carried over to Sunday's
match as the Gators crushed Mississippi
With Friday's win, Burleigh became just
the fifth active Division-I coach and the
nation's only female coach with 300 career
victories. But following two big wins, the
18-year coach remained modest.
"I know I sound like a broken record,
but I'm just happy we got the win today,"
Burleigh said Friday. "What's most impor-
tant is that Mississippi was in first place,
and we got three points.
"We're in the heat of battle right now,
but I'm sure this is something I'll reflect on
when my career's over."
Bishop's cross appeared to be intended
for KeLeigh Hudson, but Hudson noticed
Kerns was standing behind her uncovered
and allowed the pass to reach Kerns.
"Bishop played a great ball, and KeLeigh
did a nice job by noticing that I was right
behind her, wide-open," Kerns said. "She
let the ball go and I was able to sneak it past
the goalkeeper. It was a good team effort all
Despite the 1-0 score, the Gators outshot
the Rebels 17-1 in what Burleigh called
their "most dominating performance of the
UF's dominance was reflected in the
score Sunday. The Gators were aggressive
from the start, taking nine shots to the
Bulldogs' three in the first half and rushing
out to a 3-0 halftime lead.
"I think we've been waiting for a while
to have a little bit of a goal explosion, and
that finally happened today," Burleigh said.
"They were really good goals good runs
into the box, good services, good individual
efforts so it was a real team effort."
Shana Hudson opened the floodgates
in the 23rd minute when she scored from 8
yards out on a goal assisted by Kerns.
"It was all Megan
Kerns," Hudson said.

Women open practice
* THERE WAS NO MIDNIGHT
MADNESS THIS YEAR.

UF may not have held Midnight
Madness this year, but that didn't
mean the women's basketball players
got the night off.
The team held its first practice at 7
p.m. Friday, the exact moment teams
were allowed to begin.
Coach Amanda Butler said the
team had a great opening practice but
then struggled a bit during Saturday's
practice, which followed a commu-
nity service event that morning.
"It's hard to maintain your focus
over a long amount of time, especially
when you start to feel tired," Butler
said. "But that's what we expect.
Overall I've been pleased. We've seen
some bright spots and a few surprises
and then ... we still have a lot of areas
we need a lot of work."
These preseason practices give the
coaching staff an opportunity to teach
new things and run many repetitions
for the players to pick it up.
Butler said a midseason practice
probably would not last as long and
would feature lots of film review.
"It's hard to put anything produc-
tive on film that's worth watching at
this point because things are so new
to everyone," she said.
Senior guard Depree Bowden said
practices are very different this year.
"[Butler's] very energetic and
always trying to get the best out of
you," Bowden said.
Junior guard Sha Brooks has also
seen difference in practice intensity
compared to last year and said there
aren't any boring moments during
"[Butler] expects a lot out of us
110 percent," Brooks said. "Even if
we mess up, she expects us to at least
go hard and go fast."
The team started working on its
full-court press, looking to pressure
the offense with in-your-face cover?
Brooks said the team has been
frustrated by the new
defense but is starting
to pick it up a little bit
more as each practice
Women's goes on.
Basketball to play the safe de-
fense just in case you
get beat," Brooks said. "But she's tell-
ing us to play close up on them so if
we do get beat, know that we have
ETC: Brooks tweaked her knee dur-
ing Saturday's practice, but it appears
to be minor. The junior, who under-
went lateral meniscectomy surgery
in March, did not participate in the
beginning of practice Sunday as a pre-
caution, working out on the exercise
bike and doing some extra stretching
on the sidelines instead. ... It's. pos-
sible the roster is not finalized yet.
The Gators have 12 eligible players
listed junior guard Susan Yenser
must sit out the 2007-08 season due
to NCAA transfer rules but there
was a possible walk-on at practices
over the weekend. Butler declined
to comment until a later date, citing
paperwork requirements still needing
to be fulfilled.
