Mallory Ramos, UF's Dance Marathon spokeswoman,

"We've been around for 14 years, so people are really

highest combination of spirit points and money raised. The
red-shirted duo contributed almost $60,000 to UF's total.
Jillian Phipps, nursing junior and a coordinator of

Women's rugby team dons dresses for charity match


By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
Alligator Writer
dswerdlow@alligator.org

With their sequined prom
dresses shining in the sun, about
30 women wrapped their arms
around one another and smiled
wide for the camera. Some had
their hai in curls, and others
donned tiaras.
But they all had one garment in
common: sports bras.
The UF Women's Rugby squad
marched onto the UVS Field
Saturday morning, clad in formal-
wear and cleats, for its seventh an-
nual Prom Rugby Charity Match.
The squad collected donations
for Sunna, a program named for
a Scandinavian sun goddess that
aims to help women cope with
cancer through the Shands at UF
Cancer Center.
Andrea Morley, the team's
president, said the squad raised
about $100 on Saturday.
Morley wore a red-and-white
plaid dress. She said the best part
of the event is seeing the outfits
participants find at the thrift
store.
"It's just two things you don't
usually picture together prom
dresses and rugby," she said.

squad's coaches who wore a Members of UF's first rugby

final score was 20-20.
Cindy Diven said she started
playing on UF's Women's Rugby
squad in 1978. She played
Saturday's in a coral dress with a
matching jacket.
"You forget about it once
you're playing," Diven said of her
dress, which she had to cut in the
back so she could run.

of Saturday's rugby match.

Most of the girls had to length-
en the slits of their dresses or rip
them off at the knees to make
playing easier. By the end of the
game, there wasn't much mate-
rial left.
Carmel Glynn, an environmen-
tal management senior, had her
green dress ripped down the back
after she was tackled. Glynn had
to throw on a T-shirt and wear her
dress backward so she could keep
playing.
Nicole Belkin, a UF medical
student, said her powder blue
dress fared pretty well in this
year's match compared to previ-
ous years.
"In our seven years of prom
rugby, I've never walked off at the
end of the game with a dress still
attached," Belkin said.

Rain, slow economy don't stop annual art festival


* SFCC'S ANNUAL FESTIVAL FEATURED 250
ARTISTS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

By KATIE GALLAGHER
Alligator Writer
kgallagher@alligator.org

Bursts of heavy rain may have slowed the people flood-
ing into downtown Gainesville for the SFCC Spring Arts
Festival Saturday and Sunday, but it didn't stop them.
Turnout wasn't as high as the 130,000 who attended
last year, and many artists packed up early Sunday, but at-
tendance wasn't as low as could be expected, said Kathryn
Lehman, the show's coordinator, as she took shelter from
the rain under a tent.
"They bring their umbrellas, and they come out here,"
Lehman said of the festival-goers.
The festival, in its 39th year, was put on by the SFCC
Cultural Programs department.
This year's show featured 250 artists, who displayed
objects such as glasswork, pottery and handmade rocking
chairs. While some traveled from as far as California and
Canada, others came from studios only a few blocks away.
Edgar Reims, of Maine, who won the 2-D Best of Show
award for his oil landscapes, said he spends his winters in
Florida and has been coming to the show for the past seven
or eight years.
Peter Carolin, a local who painted the design for this
year's advertisements, spent much of his time autograph-
ing posters and T-shirts, which featured a Florida land-
scape of palm trees and a cloud-filled sky. The original was
on sale in his booth for $2,400.
Carolin said he's been coming to the festival for about
20 years.
The city's art festival last fall was a low point in his sales
due to the economic downturn, he said, but things now are
starting to perk up.
Susan Nash, a Gainesville artist who sold Dr. Seuss-like
sculptures, said she also noticed sales picking up.
"People are still being a little picky with their money,"
Nash said. "But my sales have been good."
Reims said his sales have not been affected by the
economy, though they may have been hurt this year by

Event thanks UF janitors


By LIA GANOSELLIS
Alligator Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org

Those responsible for maintaining
UF's campus, including groundskeep-
ers and irrigation workers, got a taste of
appreciation Friday from a UF organiza-
tion.
The Hispanic Student Association
hosted its first Janitor Appreciation Day
by offering free lunch, bags of candy,
music and dancing on Flavet Field to
about 100 UF employees.
Melany Valderrama, community
service director for the group, said the
janitors of UF deserve recognition for
their hard work.
"Because of them, our campus is so
beautiful," Valderrama said. "We want
to show that we are grateful for what
they do for us."
Dan Scholes, a UF groundskeeper,
said the event was the first of its kind
he'd seen in his five years at UF.
"I wish all the groups would do this
for us," Scholes said.
A free lunch from students once a
week would be ideal, he said with a


chuckle.
John Black, a UF maintenance me-
chanic, said the show of appreciation
from students gives him incentive to
work hard. Black has been at UF for 25
years.
"We do a lot of things that people
never see," Black said, including cut-
ting grass, fixing cracked sidewalks and
keeping concrete from falling off build-
ings.
Despite the lack of recognition, he
said he enjoys his job.
On "If I wasn't enjoying it, I
Campus wouldn't still be here now,"
Black said.
Donald Shepherd, a UF
groundskeeper of 11 years, said students
have other ways of showing apprecia-
tion, including doing their part to keep
the UF campus clean.
Shepherd said he thinks students
have started taking advantage of trash
receptacles over the past few years to
take the workload off UF's employees.
Still, he said he enjoys keeping the
campus clean.
"This work needs to be done, and
somebody's got to do it," Shepherd said.

ter technology.
Micha received the award from the
Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation,
an organization trying to advance the
chemical sciences by addressing related
needs, according to the group's Web site.
With a better understanding of solar
energy's scientific aspects, Micha said he
hopes to prove that it can compete with, if
not surpass, other energy sources.
But his team must first figure out bet-
ter ways to gather solar energy and make
it usable.
He said his research could have "big
implications" for the country's energy
needs and growing preference for more
sustainable alternatives.


"We don't have a schedule for
breakthroughs."
David Micha

He said he's been focusing on this
research with a rotating team of under-
graduate students for about five years,
and he plans to keep it up.
The bulk of the grant will help pay
some of students' tuition and travel ex-
penses for solar energy research confer-
ences or competitions, he said.
For Micha, the award is a chance for
him to be a mentor to his team, he said.
"It's mostly for the benefit of the stu-
dents, not for me," he said.

UF Judo Club hosts tourney


By ZAHARA ZAHAV
Alligator Contributing Writer

Hajime! Koka! Yuko!
Cries of referees at a judo match bounced off
the walls of the Southwest Recreation Center
Saturday while children and adults competed
in the 2008 Gator Open Judo Tournament.
The tournament, hosted by the UF Judo
Club, was the first held at UF in five years.
About 80 competitors ranging from ages
6 to 50 competed against other judo students
from all over Florida.
Kyle Ditzian, social chairman of UF Judo
Club, said the Japanese martial art is a good
sport for all ages because it isn't as dangerous
as other sports.
"There's no punching or kicking," Ditzian
said. "The worst I've ever done is pushed over
a cup of water by accident when I was fight-
ing."
Judo, which means "gentle way" in
Japanese, emphasizes overtaking your oppo-
nent with skill rather than strength.
Judo requires its students to participate in
matches to progress in the levels of colored
belts, a system similar to other forms of martial
arts, Ditzian said.
Belts range from white, the lowest skill
level, to black, the highest. Match winners
earned additional points toward his or her next
belt, he said.
"Juniors," or judo students under 17, com-
peted in the first part of the tournament while
older participants watched, stretching and
practicing moves outside of the designated
mats.
Parents stood along the large gray mats,
some yelling, "Roll him, baby!" and "Turn her


over!"
The tournament was open to both sexes,
though only 11 girls and women participated.
Tedi-Marie Usher, a member of UF Judo,
said she was uncomfortable at first with the
low number of females in the club and in the
sport.
"There's no punching or kicking.
The worst I've ever done is pushed
over a cup of water by accident
when I was fighting."
Kyle Ditzian
UF Judo Club social chairman

"It can definitely be limiting," said Usher,
who was one of two girls her age to compete.
"I don't get to experience as many techniques
or learn as much since there aren't as many
girls."
There were more younger participants com-
peting than older ones, though one competitor,
Anthony Alien, 48, said the fact that there was
an age category for 40- to 50-year-olds was still
impressive.
Chan Youn, treasurer of UF Judo Club, said
the tournament took a few months to coordi-
nate but was a good way to make money and
network with other clubs.
Though not much of a profit was made after
the estimated $2,400 cost, Youn said he thinks
the Gator Open will raise awareness for the
club.
UF Judo Club, which has grown from about
10 active members last year to at least 30 this
semester, won second-best team at the tourna-
ment, after the Central Florida Judo Club.

decades is the nod-nod-wink-wink influence of privilege.
The old adage "it's not what you know but who you know"
seems to be reinforced on college campuses across the nation
- whether it be landing that job after graduation or even get-
ting on campus in the first place.
Right or wrong, we are not so naive as to believe that those
who have the advantage of signing a prestigious last name on
an application don't positively influence their chances of ac-
ceptance.
Many students at UF have certainly earned their place on
campus, it's hard to imagine that we've all arrived with equal
consideration.
And though many tend to associate the power of privilege
with the upper echelons of Ivy League institutions, the state's
flagship university is no stranger to favoritism especially
political.
One doesn't need to look much further back than this
semester, with UF President Bernie Machen's public endorse-
ment of Republican John McCain and the controversial hiring
of Republican state Sen. Mike Haridopolos, to find evidence
that we are now on a highly politicized campus.
So when the dean of UF's College of Medicine decided to
disregard the backing of the Medical Selection Committee in
an unusual move to admit a student from a well-connected
family, we were not exactly stunned by his actions.
But we had a particularly hard time believing Kone when
he commented to The Gainesville Sun that he was not influ-
enced by any outside sources, especially when the outside
influence turns out be none other than Gov. Charlie Crist and
a very kind donor to the Republican Party the father of the
candidate in question.
Though the dean declined to comment on applicant Ben
Mendelsohn's qualifications and expressed regret that he
couldn't reveal how exceptional he was, we suspect it wasn't
actually for the privacy concerns he cited.
Because, really, if Mendelsohn was so outstanding as to
warrant a sweeping violation of standard acceptance proce-
dures, then why would the committee not admit him in the
first place? If he were truly that brilliant, the dean's actions
would have been unnecessary.
And, so all things considered, it really becomes obvious
why Dean Kone would bend over backwards for one applica-
tion and why he chose to risk the reputation of the entire col-
lege in the process.
For us, its pretty clear: Money talks.
In 2006, Mendelsohn's father contributed about $15,000 to
Republican candidates, including $500 to the governor, accord-
ing to records from the Florida Department of State Division of
Elections. His father also held a May 2005 fundraiser for Crist
at his home, where more than $100,000 was raised for Crist's
campaign.
That recommendation better have been on some pricey
letterhead. But the true cost of allowing privilege to control
the admissions process at UF's College of Medicine, and any
other college, will be much higher than a couple of thousand
dollars.
As thousands of applications pour in for the 135-seat class
at the UF College of Medicine, the genuinely qualified candi-
dates who are turned away will lose a deserved opportunity.
And those who make it in simply because of their connec-
tions won't do much to increase the standing of the university.

UF worthy of more student money


Dearest UF,
It's been too long. I should have called.
Someone told me you lost weight good for you.
I hope life has given you all you expected. How's Tebow?
Don't worry, I'm not pregnant or anything. I'm not
writing to ask for money. It's quite the opposite, really.
People have been talking, UF, and the word on the street
is that you've landed on hard times. I want to help. Listen,
you might not be "in love" with me anymore, but my
heart can never forget you. And, as one of your students
and soon-to-be alumnus too, I can stay silent no longer.
Your lifestyle comes with a high cost, I know. It's hard out
here for a top public institution that charges so little. You
try to be everything to everyone, and no one appreciates
you for you, UF.
With everybody trying to go off and be a part of The
Gator Nation, they seemed to have forgotten about you at
home in Gainesville.
First, you should bank on this tech-fee thing happen-
ing. I think it would be good for you.
A Senate bill proposed last week would allow your
Board of Trustees to charge up to a 5 percent technol-
ogy fee. I'm excited, but we should keep patient. The
bill has to be approved by the Senate, the House, the
governor and then your students through a referendum.
The fee would cost in-state, undergraduate students a scant
$3 per credit hour, but it would generate $7 million for you.
I've always encouraged you to realize your dream of Wi-
Fi expansion. And I know how much computer labs mean
to you. I can recall too many a sleepless night when you
worried about projectors functioning properly in class-
rooms. Technology doesn't grow on trees (except maybe
for Apple computers).
Next, a faculty committee for your College of Liberal


Arts and Sciences said last week
the college would be unable to
make the 6 percent or $3 million
budget cut asked by President
Bernie Machen.
But please don't be so hard on
Vincent Massaro it. Remember, UF, honey: Faculty
letters@alligator.org members don't grow on trees
either no matter how envi-
ronmentally conscious they are.
Now don't get worried, baby. (Yeah, I called you "baby."
I'm not going to hide how I feel for you. Deal with it.)
You don't need the Legislature. We can do this. Stop
cutting your funds. Everyone loves you. They'll pay
more if only you would ask. About 27,000 people wanted
you this year and look how many were turned away.
You did the whole $10-per-transcript thing, and I'm proud
of you, but you need to step up your game. Get brave, UF.
You're worth the extra cost.
I know you're worried that if you start charging more,
students won't come. Bright Futures wouldn't cover tuition
increaseslikethese,sostudentswillhavetopayoutofpocket.
They'll say things like: "Hey, man, money doesn't grow on
trees. It grows in my parents' pockets."
But I bet everyone would take a little personal expense
over a whole lotta cuts in departments and in rankings.
You have to start standing up for yourself.
It doesn't matter how bright "Bright Futures" is. You,
UF, are the reason why students choose to stay in Florida.
Without financial hold,
Vincent

Economic stimulus package won't work


Letter to the Editor
Ultrasound would educate patients
In Friday's edition of the Alligator,
the Editorial Board attacked the Florida
House of Representatives for passing a
bill requiring all women seeking abor-
tions to receive an ultrasound. The Darts
& Laurels section called it "another con-
servative obstruction intended to prevent
women from getting abortions."
Since when is preventing women from
having abortions such a horrendous act
that it warrants attacks from the media?
The legislation contains no provisions
denying a woman's right to choose as set
forth in Roe v. Wade. It is simply a means
of educating women so they might make
the right decision. It is still their choice.
It is disappointing that the Alligator
opposes measures that would reduce
the number of abortions in this state. If
a woman considering the termination of
her pregnancy chooses to keep her child,
then the law is a blessing, not a "conser-
vative obstruction."

t looks like the Fed's money presses
have some long nights ahead as tax-
payers could begin receiving their
government stimulus package checks as
early as June, according to an Associated
Press report. But President Bush and his
economic team have made it very clear
that everyone's piggy banks should be
left on their shelves.
In his January 18 speech on the pack-
age, President Bush stated that the $145
billion "shot in the arm" is a temporary
fix meant to "keep our economy grow-
ing and create jobs." Treasury Secretary
Henry Paulson's short epilogue followed
suit. "There are no silver bullets," he
said. "But...there's plenty of evidence
- you give money to people, they're go-
ing to spend it."
A spending increase should translate
into a briefly enlivened economy. But
when rising gas prices, the consistent
devaluation of the dollar, the war in Iraq
and the soon-to-be baby busted Social
Security program are considered, this
stimulus package starts to seem like a
Band-Aid stretched across an open chest
cavity or a shovel full of dirt thrown into
a meteorite crater. It is at best a stall. At
worst, it reveals the government leaders'


Paul Heath senseless propa-
Speaking Out nation of the
boom-and-bust
business cycle
and their refusal to make the hard deci-
sions that could create lasting economic
change.
The Federal Reserve has been printing
more money in the last decade than ever
before. And when more money is cre-
ated, the value of each individual dollar
drops. This year, the dollar has dropped
8 percent in value against the euro. It is
approximately half of one British pound.
Now the government wants to print even
more currency to support the stimulus
package checks. As it is, our balloon-
ing deficit can only impede upon the
package's effectiveness.
Currently, the United States is over
$9 trillion in debt. The war in Iraq has
cost the United States more than $500
billion to date. And how much more will
be spent if the newly elected president
wants to stay?
The baby-boomers have begun to re-
tire now, and this promises to break the
Social Security program. It is estimated
that in less than 10 years, more money
will be taken out of Social Security than

put in. On top of all this, some Democrats
want to implement universal health care,
a system utilized in Canada where
citizens spend 9 percent of the GDP on
health care.
To truly solve our economic ills, diffi-
cult decisions have to be made. Stopping
inflation and a severe decrease in spend-
ing would stabilize the economy. A
stronger dollar and fewer corporate re-
strictions would make America appeal-
ing to manufacturers again. Then, as a
producing country, America would have
more jobs and more revenue.
U.S. soldiers need to be pulled out
of Iraq. Victory is impossible because
it cannot be defined, and the price paid
in money and blood is unacceptable.
Social Security must be privatized before
future generations come of age. Finally,
the health care professionals should not
tolerate government intervention in their
field. It appears universal health care has
failed in countries such as Great Britain
and Canada, and the outcome would be
no less dismal here.
The economy can be fixed. But the
solution is not government checks in the
mail.

Dance crews battle at annual UF hip-hop competition


By ANDREA ASUAJE
Alligator Contributing Writer

The amber wood-paneled
dance floor vibrated as bass beats
rumbled through the room. Two
crews lined up on opposite sides,
eyes set on their opponents. The
DJ scratched the record, and sud-
denly bodies flew across the floor
and lifted into air, freezing in acro-
batic and abstract poses.
The break dance-crew battles
were a celebration of originality,
soul and art.
Along with popping battles
- which incorporated con-
trolled, jerking movements the
Saturday night dance competi-
tion was the main event of Soul
Cypher 7, an annual Gainesville
hip-hop event.
Other events included
Friday night's MC Olympics
and Sunday's barbecue. A graf-
fiti contest was also scheduled for
Sunday but was canceled because
of rain.
The Hip Hop Collective, an
organization on campus commit-
ted to preserving and spreading
a positive view of hip-hop and its
culture, hosted the events.
The Saturday night competi-
tions, held in the Grand Ballroom
of the Reitz Union, were not for
money but rather respect and
appreciation of the art form and
culture, said Charles Harriott,
president of the group.
"This is what hip-hop really
is," Harriott said.
Last year, more than 2,000 peo-
ple attended the open events, and
he said about the same number
came this year.

ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FOREST FIRES.


Kevin Tate, a UF doctorate
student and co-founder of the Hip
Hop Collective, said Soul Cypher
is a great way to dispel myths
about hip-hop culture and show
that hip-hop is not just about
"cash, drugs and hos."
"I want people to see that
this is something that
takes as much practice
and dedication as any
other art form."
Kevin Tate
Hip Hop Collective co-founder

"This is a legitimate American
art form," Tate said. "I want peo-
ple to see that this is something
that takes as much practice and
dedication as any other art form."
He also said an event such as
Soul Cypher, where women are
dancing with and against men,
is a way for people to see that
true hip-hop does not objectify
women.
Misti Lewis, who danced with
the Backyard Funk crew, knows
all about being a woman in the
world of hip-hop.
"You feel like you're always
being judged," Lewis said. "For a
girl to do it, it takes a lot of person-
ality and energy."
Soul Cypher attracted both
amateurs and experienced crews,
including the Enigma Dance Kru,
a group from Tampa recently fea-
tured in MTV's "America's Best
Dance Crew."
One of the most eye-catching
crews of the night was the SB
crew, a group of boys as young as

8 years old.
Twelve-year-old Mickey
"Ketchup" Blocker, of SB, said he
learned breaking from his father,
who has been dancing for more
than 25 years.
Mickey said he earned his
name because of his love of the
condiment.
He said he used to perform his
floor work with one hand while
licking his other hand, which was
covered in ketchup.
Mickey said his favorite moves


are head spins and windmills, and
that hip-hop music and movement
are a part of him.
"Whenever the music goes
through you, it just feels so good,"
he said.
At the end of the night, 10-year-
old Amaleke "Kidd" Bradley from
Pompano Beach won the popping
competition, while the Ill Movez
Cru, known as IMC, from Carol
City took home the trophy for best
dance crew.
IMC's Sammy "Pretzel"


Infante, 21, whose crew's first bat-
tle was against Ketchup's SB crew,
said breaking is a good way to
have fun and stay out of trouble.
He also said it's great to see
younger kids look up to him as
he once did when he first began
breaking.
After the emcee announced
IMC's win, Infante was thrown
onto his crewmates' shoulders as
they celebrated their victory.
"It feels good," he said. "It feels
real good."

FSU bomb scare triggered by briefcase in garage


By KATIE SANDERS
Alligator Writer
ksanders@alligator.org

A briefcase labeled with an explosive nick-
name sent part of Florida State University's
campus into emergency mode Thursday
afternoon, but FSU officials said the scare
proved to be nothing more than a good test
of its emergency resources.


At 11:40 a.m., a Parking and Transportation
Services employee working inside a cam-
pus parking garage reported a briefcase
inside a white Isuzu pickup truck with "A-
Bomb" written in white letters, FSU Police
Department spokesman Jim Russell said
The scare triggered a reaction from FSU's
police and local bomb squad. But a 17-year-
old high school student who was visiting his
girlfriend on campus claimed the vehicle and


"We're very happy that it was not a
bomb."
Jim Russell
FSU Police Department spokesman

briefcase at 1:15 p.m., explaining that "A-
Bomb" is his nickname.
"We're very happy that it was not a
bomb," Russell said.


FSU spokeswoman Browning Brooks said
FSU used four tools in Thursday's alarm:
blanket e-mail alerts, reverse-911 calls to
blind students, a post on its Web page with
updates and text messages. Brooks said most
of the alerts were released smoothly, but the
text messages got to some students hours
later.
UF plans to test its emergency text-mes-
saging system for a second time on April 18.

PUBLIC SAFETY

In time for prom, teens warned about sexual assault


By WILL AFFORD
Alligator Writer
wpafford@alligator.org

Combining rape prevention les-
sons with free tuxedo rental and
manicures, the Alachua County
Victim Services and Rape Crisis
Center spent last week bringing the
"Respect Your Date Contest" to local
high schools.
April is Sexual Assault
Awareness Month, and the center
is focusing on teenagers because
they are beginning to date and will
soon be attending prom dances,
said Loretta Golden, the center's
program director.
Students were given a fact sheet
and a quiz, and they entered draw-
ings for prizes.
"It creates a dialogue among
peers," Golden said.
Laura Kalt, project coordinator
at the center, said she thought the
contest would make kids more re-
ceptive to knowledge.
"They want to take the quiz for
the prizes, and they end up talking
about it with their friends," Kalt
said.
The contest is important because
many teenagers won't talk about
sexual assault in their homes, said
Ketarah Reed, a Gainesville High
School student.
"Their parents may not sit down


and talk to them about this stuff,"
Reed said.
But high school students are not
the only ones who need to know
how to prevent sexual assaults.
Those facing the highest risk of
being victimized are 15- to 19-year-
olds, said Tanja van der Veen, a vic-
tim advocate at the University Police
Department.
That range includes new college
students, many of whom explore
their newfound freedom by party-
ing and drinking, van der Veen
said.
When a new sense of indepen-
dence is coupled with alcohol, the
results can be especially risky, said
Beth-Anne Blue, a counselor at the
Student Health Care Center who
specializes in sexual abuse.
"A recipe for disaster is what it
is," Blue said.
Many sexual assault victims,
both young and old, do not report
the crimes to law enforcement.
One reason is a fear of being
blamed, said Gretchen Howard,
chair for the Council Against Sexual
Violence at the State Attorney's
Office.
"We have to be really, really care-
ful not to blame people for the ac-
tions of perpetrators," Howard said.
Students who have been sexually
abused often feel shock, denial, guilt
and self-blame, Blue said.


Most people who are sexually
assaulted say they were victimized
by someone they know, further dis-
couraging them from reporting the
crime, van der Veen said.

"They want to take the quiz
for the prizes, and they
end up talking about it with
their friends."
Laura Kalt
project coordinator


Men are even less likely than
women to come forward, Blue said,
because of shame and embarrass-
ment.
In 2007, 93 forcible rapes were


reported to Gainesville law enforce-
ment, according to the FBI's Uniform
Crime Reports. The numbers for the
prior few years were similar.
If a student is sexually assaulted,
a variety of victim's services are
available on campus and through-
out Alachua County.
The Alachua County Victim
Services and Rape Crisis Center
has a 24-hour anonymous hotline,
as well as counseling and support
groups.
The State Attorney's Office
also offers counseling and sup-
port groups for adults and teens,
Howard said.
On campus, the Center for
Sexual Assault/Abuse Recovery
& Education, or CARE, offers con-


fidential counseling, something
police and victim advocates don't
offer, Blue said.
Counselors at CARE aren't
required by law to disclose any in-
formation about their clients, Blue
said.
"What you tell me stays here and
that's it," she said.
Although sexual assault cannot
be completely prevented, there are
ways students can reduce their risk,
Blue said.
Limiting alcohol use, employing
a "buddy system" and watching out
for friends top the list, Gainesville
Police Detective Sgt. Ray Barber
said.
"You have to look out for each
other," Barber said.

GPD honors Dahlem on first anniversary of his death


Jessica Ponn/ Alligator
Gainesville Fire Chief William Northcutt speaks with Katie and Brandon Dahlem Friday after a dedica-
tion ceremony for their father. Both said they want to be firefighters when they graduate from college.


* DEPARTMENT DEDICATES
MEDIA CENTER TO DAHLEM.

By JESSICA PONN
Alligator Staff Writer
jponn@alligator.org

The only time Gainesville
Police Lt. Corey Dahlem was
ever reprimanded at work was
when, the life-long Seminoles fan
got caught on the job watching a
Gators sports game with his col-
leagues.
He told his supervisor cur-
rent Alachua County Sheriff
Sadie Darnell he had been
testing out the big-screen TVs in
GPD's Data Trac room, a high-
tech multimedia center Dahlem
helped design.
Darnell wasn't buying it.
"Yeah, right," she said with
a laugh. "They were definitely
watching the game."
Friday morning, one year
after Dahlem's death, the Data
Trac room was dedicated to him
in front of his family and fellow


officers.
His widow, Sally Dahlem, and
their two children, Katie, 19, and
Brandon, 22, listened as GPD
Chief Norman Botsford spoke
about Dahlem's character and
dedication to the force.
"Corey, without exception,
was a delight every single day,"
Darnell said.
Sally Dahlem said a few
words as well, encouraging her
husband's friends to
Local smile rather than cry
News when they thought
of him.
"Just remember funny stories
about him and the things that
you did with him," she said, "and
just smile and laugh."
The Data Trac room, which
was constructed from the ground
up after GPD moved its commu-
nications center, is equipped with
touch-screen TVs and other state-
of-the-art technology, said GPD
spokeswoman Summer Hallett.
"It's kind of like a war room,"
Hallett said.


Some students say evacuation went smoother than similar situation in February

Jackson Sasser, met them there and an-
nounced periodic updates. Most students,
however, decided to leave campus.
Keen said he thought most people
would rather know about potential threats,
even if they are unlikely to materialize.
"In this day and age we just had to act
on the side of caution," he said.
As early as Friday afternoon, Keen
said, he had received positive feedback
and appreciation for the school's decision


to evacuate.
SFCC students said the evacuation
went smoother than a similar evacuation
conducted in February, when a student
brought a gun on campus.
"This is way less chaotic than that,"
said 19-year-old Carly Veilleux. "This is
much more organized."
Donny Hummel, 34, agreed, saying,
"Within minutes I actually knew what was
going on, whereas before I heard vague
rumors."
Still, Hummel said, not everything was
perfect.


"In this day and age we just had to
act on the side of caution."
Larry Keen
SFCC spokesman

He said the loudspeaker message was
unintelligible.
"It sounded like Charlie Brown's teach-
er," he said.
But because he heard a booming voice,
he figured something important was going
on and began following crowds.
Keen said while he thought the Friday


evacuation went well, he agreed that there
is still room to improve.
He said the administration wants to
focus on the traffic jam that resulted in
the dash to leave campus both Friday and
after the gun incident.
In addition, addressing Hummel's
point, Keen said the volume on the speak-
ers would be lowered next time to make
messages more understandable.
All in all, though, Keen said he consid-
ered the threat management a success.
"Today I can say, with candor and truth,
it went very well," he said.

GRAD TAB 2008


Seniors saw a lot in four years


From sports titles to a Tasering


By LIA GANOSELLIS
AiigaiLir Writer
eganosellis@alligator.org


When UF's graduating class
of 2008 finally walks the stage
in May, donned in black caps
and gowns, they will take more
with them than just a diploma.
Their time spent at UF will
leave them with four years'
worth of memories, from na-
tional championships that left
University Avenue a flood of
orange and blue, to statewide
revenue shortfalls forcing UF to
cut millions from its budget.
The class of 2008 will be able
to look back on their college
years with a sense of triumph.
UF is home to the first Heisman
Trophy-winning sophomore,
Tim Tebow.
Many students will also be
able to look back on the reopen-
ing of their newly expanded
and renovated haven for study-
ing, napping and Starbucks cof-
fee Library West.
And who could forget a cer-
tain Taser incident that made
national headlines?
Whatever memories students
leave with, most can agree that
it's great to be a Florida Gator.

Nation of Champions
Not many universities can
claim football and basket-
ball championships, and none
but the Gators can boast both
in one year.
But Urban Meyer and Billy


Donovan put UF on the map
when Meyer led his football
team to a BCS national title for
the 2006 season and Donovan
pushed his basketball .team
to win back-to-back national
championships in 2006 and
2007
The Gators basketball team
won its first national champi-
onship on April 3, 2006 and its
second on April 2, 2007
In the middle of the team's
two titles, the Gators football
team, led by quarterback Tim
Tebow, snagged a champion-
ship of its own on Jan. 8, 2007
Lindsey Jones, an advertising
senior, said the first basketball
championship the first in UF
basketball history stands out
most in her mind.
"I just remember being
completely wide-eyed at the
craziness," Jones said. "It was
literally 'Jumanji' on University
Avenue:'
Each championship seemed
to try to outdo the last, she said.
"I feel like I've seen everything,"
she said. "Kids swinging from
light posts, Christmas trees
burning it was complete may-
hem!'
Matthew Williams, a political
science senior, said he traveled
to Glendale, Ariz., to attend the
Gators' football championship
game against the Ohio State
University Buckeyes.
Despite the Gators' rocky
start, Williams said he knew
victory would belong to UF.
"I just knew that we were go-


ing to come back, and when we
did it was just so sweet and so
satisfying," he said.

And the Heisman
Trophy Goes To...
As if three national cham-
pionships in one calendar
year weren't convincing enough
of UF's success in sports, Tim
Tebow sealed the deal when he
snagged the Heisman Trophy on
Dec. 8. Tebow became the third
Heisman winner from UF and
the only sophomore to ever
receive the award.
Despite his unprecedented
stats 23 touchdowns rushing
and 32 passing critics and
fans alike questioned whether
voters would be able to look
past Tebow's youth.
But he prevailed, receiving
nearly 200 more first-place
votes than the runner-up,
Arkansas running back Darren
McFadden.
Hawaii quarterback Colt
Brennan came in third, and
Missouri quarterback Chase
Daniel came in fourth.
Williams said Tebow had no
competition.
"He's the only person that
deserved it," he said. "He had
such a fantastic year. They had
to give it to him."

Library West
In August 2006, an expanded
and renovated Library West
reopened its doors to UF stu-
dents after nearly three years of
construction.


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF student Andrew Meyer speaks with University Police after being removed from a forum with Sen.
John Kerry on Sept. 17. Meyer was Tasered while pinned under officers and arrested with a felony charge
of resisting arrest and a misdemeanor of disrupting the peace.

winning it in a ceremony in the Nokia Theatre in Times Square on


Dec. 8.
A full-service Starbucks was
added to the library, and the
capacity expanded from about
400 to about 1,500.
Jones said she didn't start
taking advantage of "Club
West" until last semester.
"It was kind of like an un-
tapped resource," she said.
She said the library was par-
ticularly helpful when she had
three exams in the span of 48
hours last semester.
"I lived in the library prob-
ably for about two weeks
straight," she said. "I knew there
was no way I could use my old
study habits, so me and Library
West became well acquainted:'

Budget Woes
UF's budget strains began in
summer 2006, when a $6
million deficit was revealed in
the College of Liberal Arts and
Sciences.
Although CLAS has since
reduced its deficit dramati-
cally, statewide revenue short-
falls have forced UF and other
public universities in Florida to
cut tens of millions from their
budgets.
Based on Legislative budget
projections, UF is expected to
have to cut about $50 million
next year alone.


UF Provost Janie Fouke
wrote in an e-mail that UF's
budget constraints have made
classes unusually large, or even
unavailable.
"Both students and faculty
members find this distressing,"
Fouke wrote. "Even so, folks at
UF really embrace this chal-
lenge:'
She said UF's six-year
graduation rate remains one
of the best in the nation.
"That's a demonstration of how
hard folks work to limit the
negative influence of the finan-
cial situation," she said.
But Fouke said UF's financial
strains probably wouldn't be
fixed anytime soon.
"The economists do not yet
foresee the end of the state's
budget woes," Fouke wrote.
"So unless the university gets
access to new revenues from
other resources, it's hard to
see when the situation will
change:'

Pugh Hall
TF began its spring semester
with a new addition to its
family. Pugh Hall opened its
doors to the public on Jan. 7 after
about a year of construction.

ALLIGATOR FILE REPORT

You're getting ready to grad-
uate. The family's coming. You
need to show them what you've
been up to for the past four (or
five or six) years. So here are a
few places to be sure to take the
whole crew, or to check out if
you never got around to it:


UNION STREET FARMERS'
MARKET: The market has
offered an intimate, vibrant
setting and a chance to buy
goods from local farmers since
1996. Every Wednesday af-
ternoon, you can browse the
organic produce, baked goods
and handmade pottery while
listening to live acoustic mu-
sic. Products include organic


coffee, nuts, vegetables, fruits,
soaps and jewelry.
HOMETOWN PIZZA JOINTS:
When it comes to pizza in
Gainesville, there are some
classics that every student
must sample before gradua-
tion. Leonardo's By The Slice
and Mellow Mushroom are near
campus and are great options


en they're
for lunch in the middle of a day
full of classes. Satchel's Pizza
is a bit farther, and you might
wait a bit for a table. But once
you bite into that first slice, it
will be well worth the wait.
HARE KRISHNA LUNCH: Even
if vegetarianism isn't your
thing, you may be surprised to
find yourself going back for a

rice and coconut cake. Dishes
vary daily, but are always

hood education graduate student,
said it's been difficult for her to
find a job, especially since she's
decided to move to Texas, where
there are different credentials for
teachers.
McQueen earned a bachelor's
degree in special education, but
did not want to teach special
education classes after she gradu-
ated.
A shortage of teaching posi-
tions in what she is interested in
-first through third grade has
led her to look for any kind of
teaching job, including special
education.
"It's not my first preference, but
I have to get a job," she said. "I'm
willing to step outside my comfort
zone"

Denslow said by starting in a
less attractive, lower paying job,
recent graduates can learn valu-
able skills and gain experience
that will help them succeed later
in life.
He also said considering and
accepting opportunities a gradu-
ate had not planned on may be
a good way to start after parting
from academia.
Halasz said being optimistic
about finding a job may be the
best way to deal with the eco-
nomic struggle.
"The prospect of the challeng-
ing is so daunting that avoidance
is easier than grappling with it," he
said. "If you believe it's going to be
overwhelming and too much of a
challenge, it will be.'

Hundreds protested Tasering at John Kerry forum


GRAD, from page 1

The building houses the Department of
AfriCan and Asian Languages and Literatures,
the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program and the
Bob Graham Center for Public Service, which was
named for the former U.S. senator.
The building itself is named after Jim Pugh,
who graduated from UF in 1963.
Already, Pugh Hall has hosted several promi-
net. guest speakers, including five former gover-
nors, two U.S. senators and former U.S. Secretary
of State Madeleine Albright. Florida Gov. Charlie
Crist is scheduled to visit the center in October.
Graham has said he's committed to encour-
aging students to be more involved in public
service and hopes they'll utilize the new campus
spot as a learning resource.

Catchphrase of the Year
The words "Don't Tase me, bro" will remain the
butt of many jokes for years to come. It all began
at a Sept. 17 campus forum with Sen. John Kerry.
Andrew Meyer, a UF telecommunication se-
nior, asked Kerry about the 2004 presidential
election and his involvement in Skull and Bones,


a secret society at Yale University, during a ques-
tion-and-answer session.
Although Kerry agreed to answer the ques-
tions, Meyer's microphone was cut off after using
profanity, and officers from the University Police
Department attempted to remove him from the
forum. After physically resisting the officers, he
was Tasered and arrested, charged with resisting
arrest with violence and disturbing the peace.
Hundreds of students protested the Tasering,
marching on UPD headquarters and staging a sit-
in at Emerson Alumni Hall. The protesters called
the Tasering police brutality and a suppression of
free speech.
Although Jones, the advertising senior, said
she heard about Meyer's Tasering that night, it
wasn't until the following morning she realized
the magnitude of the situation when she saw it
on national television.
"I was like, 'Whoa, UF has gotten itself into
something,'" Jones said. She said she couldn't re-
ally side with either Meyer or the UPD officers.
Both took extreme measures, she added. Now,
people can recall the Taser incident with humor,
she said, with Meyer's infamous words becoming
a popular slogan for T-shirts.
"It's kind of like the joke on campus," she
said.

Pouncey leads changing of the guard at center


* HE WILL FOLLOW IN DREW
MILLER'S FOOTSTEPS.


By PHIL KEGLER
Alligator Staff Writer
pkegler@alligator.org


It is an integral part of the of-
fense, and its difficulty can be
overlooked by a casual bystander:
the 4-center-to-quarterback ex-
change.
The nature of UF's offense
exacerbates the problem, because
the center must consistently make
quality shotgun snaps.
Departed senior Drew Miller
made the job look effortless by the
end of the 2007 season after start-
ing at guard in 2006.
Now it's rising sophomore
Maurkice Pouncey's turn to make
a similar transition.
Pouncey started at guard in 11
of 13 games last season, and this
spring has seen him begin the
path towards starting at center in
the fall.
It hasn't been completely
smooth, with plenty of snaps skid-
ding along the ground during the
early part of spring.
"It's a lot different than guard,"
Pouncey said. "You gotta know all
the calls. This is a big transition for
me right now."
Offensive line coach Steve





S.,


Addazio said it takes a certain kind
of player to excel at center.
"As a center, you've got be a
ball guy," Addazio said. "This has


gotta be your world. You've gotta
be able to understand all the pres-
sures, you've gotta understand
how to call defenses, you gotta un-


derstand all those things that have
to happen. It's real, real important.
That guy's like the quarterback of
the offense."


*4


Casey Brooke Lawson / Alligator Staff
UF freshman Maurkice Pouncey (center) had a successful season playing from the guard position but
now has to learn a new position as he takes over for Drew Miller at center.


Pouncey got the initial nod at
first-squad center because of his
desire to be that guy.
"Maurkice really wanted it,"
Addazio said. "He really feels like
he'd be good at it, and I think he
can be great at it."
Pouncey has turned to Miller
for advice after the former Gator
went through a similar rough
stretch last spring.
"He told me it was going to be
hard in the beginning but it will all
come through for me," Pouncey
said.
Addazio isn't worried about
Pouncey's development but will
have contingency plans just in case
of injury or any other problem.
"We'll have four guys ready to
snap the ball come fall," Addazio
said. "I want to put the five best
offensive linemen on the field,
whoever they are, however that
unwinds. ... Maurkice does a
great job, he likes playing center,
he's the center. [If] he can hold
that position, great. But we'll have
four centers ready to play in every
game."
The rising sophomore realizes
how key his play will be next fall.
After all, even the most potent
offense is useless until after the
snap.
"It's all on me to get the ball up
[to the quarterbacks]," Pouncey
said.

Perry puts on a show in lone home meet of season


Andrew Stanfill / Alligator Staff
UF's Willie Perry (center) and Jeremy Hall (right) run in the second heat of the men's 100-meter dash at
the Florida Relays on Friday afternoon. Perry finished in second place and Hall took sixth in the event.


* UF WON 14 EVENTS AT
THE FLORIDA RELAYS.

By MIKE DIFERDINANDO
Alligator Writer

Just as the rain clouds began
to roll in and cast a shadow over
Gainesville, Willie Perry started to
light up the track.
The sprinter's electric perfor-
mance led the UF track and field
team to a strong showing in its only
home meet of the season, the Florida
Relays.
After spending all year watch-
ing his classmates on other Gators
squads compete on campus, it was
finally Perry's turn to show what he
could do.
He didn't disappoint.
The junior raced his way to a
second-place finish in the 100-meter
dash on Friday. His time of 10.19
seconds ranks as the fifth-fastest in
the world this year and second in
the NCAA.
"You know when we have a meet
here, it's going to be big," Perry said.
"All fall, I would go watch all of my
friends that play other sports, and


they would always ask me when
they were going to get a chance to
come check me out. -k
"It's a great feeling having every-
one here watching. I've been show-
ing them a good time."
Perry finished .04 seconds behind
Olympic hopeful and former LSU
football star Xavier Carter. Carter's
time of 10.15 seconds is the world's
third-fastest this
year.
Perry contin-
ued his success
on Saturday in
spectacular fash-
ion, capturing
first place in the
Holloway 200-meter dash
in a come-from-
behind victory. His mark of 20.4 sec-
onds was a career best and NCAA
best this season.
"We always knew that Will was
a great athlete," UF track and field
coach Mike Holloway said. "When
he's focused, the sky's the limit
for him. He's really dialed in right
now."

UF BASEBALL

Gators avoid sweep at UT


By EVAN DREXLER
Alligator Staff Writer
edrexler@alligator.org

With the bases loaded, the tying run at the
plate and a full count, UF reliever Stephen
Locke had a single thought racing through his
mind.
"I've just got to make this pitch," Locke said.
"I dug myself in a little hole, and all I can think
is, 'I've gotta make this pitch, gotta throw a
strike.'"
But he never dreamed of what happened
next.
Alihe drive off the bat of Tennessee firstbase-
man Jeff Lockwood went right to Josh Adams at
second base. Adams flipped the ball to shortstop
Cole Figueroa, who threw to Clayton Pisani at
first base to complete the Gators' second triple
play of the year.
"It was awesome," left fielder Avery Barnes
said. "It was definitely a momentum swing for
us as a ballclub. ... I don't know what you want
to call it. We got it done."
The Gators held their four-run lead thanks
to the triple play, taking the final game of the
three-game series 7-2 Sunday afternoon in
seven innings.
The win snapped a season-long five-game
losing streak but wasn't enough for UF to


keep pace with Georgia atop the Southeastern
Conference standings.
The No. 19 Gators (21-10, 8-4 SEC) needed
the win after a 5-4 loss early Saturday and a
12-6 defeat that spanned two days threatened
to make the trip to Knoxville as poor as the
weather.
"Hopefully that triple play is some-
thing we can look back to that was
a big momentum changer."
Kevin O'Sullivan
UF baseball coach

Rain moved Friday's game to Saturday
morning while Saturday's second game was
split between Saturday and Sunday after weath-
er again made the field unusable. Because of the
early game, Sunday's game was shortened to
seven innings.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan thinks the triple
play may have changed around the entire year.
"Certain things turn your season around a
little bit," O'Sullivan said. "Certainly, I'm go-
ing to point out that hopefully that triple play
is something we can look back to that was a big
momentum changer, hopefully, in our season,

UF dominates Auburn-


By CHRISTOPHER YAZBEC
Alligator Writer
cyazbec@alligator.org

Rain kept the UF men's tennis
team off the courts on Sunday, but it
didn't slow them down in Friday's
washout of Auburn.
The Gators (12-5, 7-2 Southeastern
Conference) swept every point
against the Tigers (10-10, 4-6 SEC) to
daim a 7-0 victory over the nation's
26th-ranked team.
"There's not a deep gap between
the two teams in talent level," UF
coach Andy Jackson said. "So it just
means that we did a super good job
of playing a match. Next time, it could
go a different direction.
"The discipline with which the
seniors are able to bring the freshmen
along to be able to blow out a true
top 25 team that's what stood out.
Because it is very hard to beat teams
that are good 7-0."
No. 11 UF's match against No. 24


Alabama, which was scheduled for
Sunday, was postponed until Monday
at noon due to rain.
The Gators opened Friday's match
against Auburn by winning two of
three doubles courts, 8-3 and 8-4, to
seal the point.
They followed that up with
straight-set wins on the top four
courts. Freshman
SAlex Lacroix clinched
the victory for UF 6-
3, 6-3.
"Almost every-
Tennis body played good,
solid matches, partic-
ularly (seniors) Greg (Ouellette) and
Nestor (Briceno), because Auburn is
really good talent-wise at (Courts) 1
and 2," Jackson said.
Freshman Erik Corace, who lost
both of his matches against LSU and
Arkansas the previous weekend,
dropped a dose first set 7-5. He

Nelson sets wins record in sweep

kmaistri@alligator.org
Efficiently and dependably, UF's
ace went about her business on
Sunday afternoon.
Nothing too flashy and nothing
too spectacular, just another mark in
the wm column for Stacey Nelson
and the Gators.
No. 3 UF (43-2,15-1 Southeastern
Conference) completed yet another
sweep, this one against Mississippi
State (32-14,6-10 SEC), behind a
shutout performance from its All-
American junior.
Last week's Amateur Softball
Association's National Collegiate
Player of the Week selection kept
her tremendous season going as
she improved her record to 28-2 and
lowered her ERAto 0.77 in a 5-0 win
over the Bulldogs.
Behind one powerful stroke from
first baseman Ali Gardiner, Nelson
got all the run support she needed
when the junior slugger connected
for her fifth home run of the season

with two outs in the first inning.
"I thought I was jammed when
the ball came off the bat," she said.
"I was surprised when it ended up
being a home run."
Jamming Gardiner has been a
tough task as of late. The third hit-


ter in UF's pro-
ductive offense
raised her bat-
ting -average to
.395 and her on-
base percentage
to .493 after the
weekend series
in Starkville.


,,CoU,, Gardiner is
quick to give her teammates credit
for her recent surge and has repeat-
edly said that moving to third in
front of sophomore Francesca Enea
and senior Mary Ratliff has given
her the opportunity to get more
pitches to hit.
UF added a run in the both the
second and third innings before
freshman Megan Bush delivered a
two-run bomb with junior Kristina
Hilberth on base.


Bush's home run gave their ace
a 5-0 lead, which was more than
enough for Nelson, who scattered
only four hits throughout the game.
Sunday's win was the third
of the weekend for Nelson, who
earned victories in both games of
Saturday's doubleheader.
In the first game of the series, UF
came away with its first 5-0 victory
of the weekend behind a home run
and three RBIs from Enea.
The second game was one for the
record books as Nelson recorded
her 75th career win in the Orange
and Blue, breaking Stacey Stevens'
mark of 74 set just a year ago.
"I didn't even know about the
record until you just asked me
about it," Nelson said in a phone
interview.
The Gators won the game 7-2
after Nelson pitched four innings
of one-hit ball in relief of freshman
Stephanie Brombacher, who started
the game.

Football recruit Demps sets blazing 100 mark

tinued to impress. Anchored by Perry,
the Gators ran their way to a first-place
finish among college athletes.
"We're getting faster with every
race," freshman Terrell Wilks said.
"We've got the speed. It's just all about
moving the stick right now. We're go-
ing to get that Southeastern Conference
Championship."
The relay team took home the Dick
Jones Award as the top college finishers
in the event, which also included high
schoolers and professionals.
Lakecia Ealey got things going on
the women's side, winning the 200 and
taking second in the 100 with a time of
11.35 seconds, a career-best and No. 3 in
the NCAA this season.
"We always thought that the 200
could be a great event for Lakecia,"
Holloway said. "She really got out
there and went for it."
Junior Adam Montague made a


triumphant return to Percy Beard
Track, winning the javelin with a
throw of 73.84 meters. It was the North
Carolina transfer's first competition in
Gainesville since he won the NCAA
East Regional in the event for the Tar
Heels in 2007.
"It felt great. I knew I had to
come out and show everyone
what I got."
Jeff Demps
Groveland South Lake High sprinter

Though the final few events of the
meet were canceled Saturday due to
rain, the Gators were still able to pile
up an impressive 14 event wins and 29
NCAA regional-qualifying marks.
"We're all coming together," Perry
said. "It's all one heartbeat right now."

DEMPS FLIES IN 100: As if he didn't
already have enough, it looks like
UF football coach Urban Meyer is
getting more speed to add to his


stable. Southlake Groveland High's Jeff
Demps, who will play football for the
Gators in the fall, ran a 10.17-second
100-meter dash Friday. His mark was
the fastest high school time in the coun-
try and the third-fastest in the world at
the time.
"It felt great," Demps said. "I knew I
had come out and show everyone what
I got."
However, his time was eclipsed
later in the day by Xavier Carter, leav-
ing him with the fourth-fastest time in
the world. He was only .02 seconds off
the all-time high school record set by
Henry Neal in 1990.
Demps, who ran for 3,162 yards in
his last two seasons at South Lake, will
likely play tailback and wide receiver
for the Gators, and he also plans to con-
tinue his track career. He led his high
school team in the 4xl00-meter relay on
Saturday and was greeted by current
UF running back and future teammate
Emmanuel Moody after the race.
"I love it," Demps said of the UF
squad. "It's like we're already family."


Women's squad takes SEC regular-season title


TENNIS, from page 21

rebounded by winning the second set 6-0 and a third-set
super-tiebreaker 1-0 (10-7) to keep the shutout alive.
"I think that Erik has a huge amount of talent and just has
a lot to learn. And I think he took a step in learning," Jackson
said. "I think he would've beaten both LSU and Arkansas
[Friday] in matches he would've lost last week."
Freshman Tyler Hochwalt secured the sweep in a 7-6 (3),
3-6, 1-0 (10-3) win. He moved to 15-2 on the year in singles
and 8-1 in SEC play, each marking the best records on the
team.
"We took advantage of some advantages," Jackson said


of the shutout. "Doubles was cose. We were able to get it. It
was very hot. We were very disciplined at the beginning, and
I think [Auburn] got a little bit discouraged."
The UF women's tennis team won its
23rd SEC regular-season championship
by surviving at No. 34 Auburn 4-3 on
Friday The title marks the most SEC titles
won by any team in any women's sport.
No. 3 UF won two of three doubles
courts to take the point and an early lead.
The Gators (16-1, 10-0 SEC) remained
Hochwalt unbeaten in conference play on Sunday
with a 7-0 win at No. 75 Alabama.
They will look to finish the SEC regular season perfect
with a win at South Carolina on Saturday.

and hopefully, we build on it."
As they did the entire series, the Gators scored in
the first inning on Sunday. Barnes walked to begin the
game, and center fielder Matt den Dekker brought
him home on the next pitch with a triple down the
right-field line. Shortstop Cole Figueroa brought de&n
Dekker home with a sacrifice fly to give UF a quick
2-0 advantage.
Barnes had three hits, three runs and two RBIs on
the day, including a solo home run in
the fourth inning that put UF up 5-2.
He was a home run short of the
cycle in Saturday's first game.
Baseball UF starter Patrick Keating (5-0, 2.66
asebal ERA) maintained his perfect record
with four innings and two strikeouts.
Though he did give up 10 hits in that span, only two
runs came across the plate.
Saturday's second contest began well for the
Gators, as they scored two runs in the first inning and
added three more heading into the bottom of the fifth
inning.
That's when things got tricky.
UF committed three errors in the inning, allowing
Tennessee (19-11, 7-5 SEC) to rack up eight unearned
runs. The Gators went from a 5-1 lead to a 9-5 deficit.
"It was probably the worst inning we've played all
year," O'Sullivan said.
The first Saturday game again saw UF get out to an
early lead, then blow it. The Volunteers got three runs
in the seventh inning off reliever Josh Edmondson to
break a 2-2 tie. The Gators scored two runs in the ninth
inning on a triple from Barnes, but Figueroa grounded
out to end the rally and the game.

Editor's Note: Beginning with the

alllgatorSports staff will vote on the
top three UF basketball performances
.- -of the week each Monday. The No. 1
player will receive 5 points, the No. 2
player 3 points and the.No. 3 player
1 point. At the.end of the season, the
player with the most combined points
will earn the title of alllgatorSports
Player of the Year.

Hot Shots Standings:
1. Nick Calathes (39 points)
2. Marreese Speights (30 points)
3. Walter Hodge (17 points)
3. Dan Werner (14 points)
4. Jai Lucas (5 points)
5. Chandler Parsons (2 points)
6. Alex Tyus (1 point)


This was a no-brainer. Speights
chose the perfect time to put
together his most impressive
performance yet. In a do-or-die
game against Massachusetts,
he dominated on the inside and
looked unstoppable at times.
The big man fatigued a bit in the
Second half but still managed
to amass eye-popping stats.
It's no secret that Speights'
future has become an issue.
This performance might have
catapulted him to the next level,
but one night shouldn't decide
his fate. He proved he has
great skills and great potential,
however. Speights would benefit
greatly from another year in
college. In addition, the Gators
would be far worse without him.


In his return home, Werner
completed his turnaround
season with another solid
performance. Werner proved
this season that a player could
impact the game without scoring
by doing all the little things to
help win. He has embraced the
role of scrapper all season and
taken his career from obscurity
Sto infamy. In New York, Werner
was once again the fan favorite.
His cheering section showed
how far he's come and how fans
appreciate the work he puts in.
Now, if he can tune his jump shot
and begin to hit from the outside
on a more consistent basis,
Werner can become a force.
With the recruits coming in, he
can slide to a more comfortable
position and realize his full
potential.


The 5-of-19 shooting performance
is a sad way for Calathes to end
a great freshman season. He
now holds the freshman scoring
and assists records and has
been UF's most dangerous and
consistent option. UF coach Billy
Donovan said he "felt bad" for
the young guard after the loss.
Hopefully. Calathes can take this
poor performance and use it
for motivation heading into next
season. He has all the potential in
the world and grew considerably
from the start. He has shown a
knack for listening and building
from his mistakes. All this points
to a tough off-season for Calathes,
one where the taste of this loss,
as well as this season, is sure to
linger. If all goes accordingly, the
talented guard will return with a
chip on his shoulder. He should be
ready to play.
