Then he ran the 40 yards by him-

UF cuts number of transfer students admitted
About 1,000 fewer transfers to be accepted
By ILEANA MORALES
UF will invite about 2,000
transfer students to enroll
Tuesday about 1,000 fewer

UF hopes to attract nursing students to classroom
* UF HOPES MORE FACULTY
WILL HELP STATE'S SHORTAGE.
By ILEANA MORALES
Florida needs nurses.
With nursing shortages in the
state expected to worsen when
baby boomers retire, some say
need to expand. But that could
be tough with impending bud-
get cuts following state revenue
Kathleen Long, dean of UF's
College of Nursing, wrote in an
e-mail that the college can't ac-
commodate the growing number
of qualified students who apply
because of a "very serious" na-
tional faculty shortage, which is
where expanding UF's graduate
nursing programs comes in.
But budget problems, which
UF President Bernie Machen said
he expects will warrant cuts of
about $50 million next year, will
make it difficult for an already-
hurting nursing program to grow.
Still, Long said there's hope.
She said encouraging UF's
nursing graduate students to
give back to their field by becom-
ing teachers would allow the uni-
versity to accept more students.
So what's the catch? It's not
easy to recruit nurses to take
a pay cut by going back to the
classroom, especially when bud-
get cuts could translate to fewer
increases in faculty
Public salaries, said Mary
Health Lou Brunell, execu-
tive director of the
Florida Center for Nursing, an
organization contracted by the
Florida Department of Health to
address the nursing shortage.
Brunell said it's a vicious
Budget cuts won't attract fac-
ulty, which means there will be
fewer students accepted, fewer
nurses in the field and fewer
teachers, she said. Any decrease
in funding would hurt nursing
education because it would re-
duce enrollment, she added.
"The gap could continue to
widen," Brunell said. "Often,
graduates from programs out-
earn faculty upon graduation."
She said current nurses need
to be kept content so they stick
David Denslow, a UF econom-
ics professor, said without more
support to nursing education,
the "real problem" is going to hit
Florida in about eight years.
Denslow said most baby
boomers turned 62 in 2008, and
when they hit their 70s they'll
need a lot of care, especially in
a state like Florida with a high
That's when the state will "re-
ally start feeling the bite," and
legislative cuts wouldn't be the
best move, he said.
"It doesn't hurt for Florida to
be funding this kind of educa-
tion," Denslow said.
By 2016, more than one mil-
lion nurses will be needed, ac-
cording to the U.S. Bureau of
As the state's housing prices
have doubled since 2000, more
and more nurses are also moving
away, Denslow added.
Florida Sen. Jeremy Ring,
who proposed a bill to change
the Florida Bright Futures
Scholarship Program to increase
awards for students by major,
including nursing, said cuts to
health services would be the
Ring's proposal died in ses-
sion, but he reiterated the need
for incentives in hurting fields,
such as nursing.
"If I had to prioritize, health
and human service cuts are what
we should be most concerned
about," he said.
U.S. nursing schools turned away about 40,000 qualified applicants
to undergraduate and graduate nursing programs in 2007, with most
schools blaming faculty shortages.
It is projected that employment for registered nurses will grow faster
than most other occupations through 2014.
In a 2007 survey, about 700 faculty vacancies were identified at 344
U.S. nursing schools with graduate or undergraduate programs.

Grad student stars in PBS film
* FILM RELIVES AUTHOR'S
JOURNEY DOWN FLA. RIVER.
By DEBORAH SWERDLOW
More than 70 years ago, a
Pulitzer Prize-winning author
traveled 100 miles along the St.
Johns River and chronicled the
journey in a novel named after a
rural town outside Gainesville.
Starting Friday, viewers can
see a UF graduate student retrace
that journey in a documentary
playing at the Hippodrome State
The film will also be shown on
local Public Broadcasting Service,
or PBS, stations beginning this
Gainesville's PBS station,
WUFT, does not have a set air-
time for the documentary yet.
Leslie Poole, a history Ph.D.
student from Winter Park, stars
in the film, and she'll be in
Gainesville on April 22 to an-
swer questions about it. Poole
plays the role of Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings, the famous writer who
sailed down the St. Johns River
The one-hour documentary,
"In Marjorie's Wake," is based'on
Rawlings' description of the trip
in "Hyacinth Drift," a chapter in
her novel "Cross Creek."
Poole, who teaches environ-
mental studies at Rollins College
in Winter Park, said her admira-
tion of Rawlings inspired her
to take a trip of her own down
the river, which runs from Vero
Beach to Jacksonville.
After that first trip in 1995,
she said she be-
She said the documentary has
been a work in progress since
2002, and filming was finished
in October 2006. Poole said she
spent seven days shooting the
"It was just a week of pure
joy," she said.
In addition to the footage of
the river, she said the produc-
ers also included portions of
interviews with travelers they
encountered along the way.
Poole said her favorite part of
the film is her interview with 96-
year-old Dessie Smith, the wom-
an who accompanied Rawlings
on the first 1933 trip.
Smith died about six months
after the interview.
On the last day of filming
at the river, the crew scattered
Smith's ashes in the water, Poole
Jack Davis, a UF history pro-
fessor and Poole's dissertation
adviser, said the film is "won-
derful and poignant."
Davis said he hopes to use the
film in his environmental history
He said the film could help
educate students about the
river's historical importance,
which he said dates back to the
pre-Columbian period. At that
time, the St. Johns River served as
a gateway for explorers and set-
tiers coming into Florida, accord-
ing to the St. Johins Riverkeeper
"It's one of the more attractive
features, natural features, of the
state," Davis said of the river.
Poole said she hopes view-
ers will be able to relate to the
St. Johns River as part of their
history and will be motivated to
experience its beauty.
"If not, at least they will un-
derstand the importance the river
has had in Florida's history and
become advocates to protect it,"

Parking plans need to
It's a common gripe at colleges across the country: Parking
on campus is a nightmare. At the second largest univer-
sity in the United States, we're no strangers to the parking
tickets, the "who-stole-my-car" moments before the adjust-
ment to roam towing and the hours of circling and stalking
in parking lots before classes.
So when it was announced Friday that UF's Parking and
Transportation Committee met td discuss the alternatives for
the 118 parking spaces that will be lost when Hough Hall is
completed, we were hoping for some innovative solutions.
But, of course, students came out with the short end of
The committee voted to transfer the car pool spots from
east of Criser Hall to areas in front of Fletcher and Sledd halls
- places normally reserved for students.
We're hoping once the proposal gets to Ed Poppel, UF's
vice president of business affairs, he'll reconsider the impli-
cations of the move.
Not only will students lose already desperately needed
spaces, but faculty who purchased car pool decals in keeping
with the mission of a sustainable campus will be inconve-
nienced as well.
It is little to ask that employees carpool to campus to re-
duce traffic congestion, but it is a lot to ask for them to park
in scattered.locations across a four-mile campus because of
poor institutional planning.
As the UF campus will only continue to expand to accom-
modate the masses of students who descend on it every day,
it's important that officials carefully consider that transporta-
tion affects surrounding campus growth.
Take Hough Hall for example. The completion of
a 59,000-square-foot building will do wonders for
the College of Business Administration by making it
more attractive to prospective students, but how will
they get there when they are persuaded to enroll?
This should not be an afterthought for UF.
It's time to start thinking outside the parking space lines.
At Ripon College, a small liberal arts college in Wisconsin,
the administration has decided to encourage bike use for
those raised in a car culture.
If incoming freshmen promise not to bring a car to cam-
pus for a full year, the college will give them a $400 thank-
you: a new mountain bike, a helmet and a lock.
Trustees and alumni donated about $60,000 to buy the
200 bicycles to give away to incoming freshmen to cover the
price tag of the program.
Some might argue that this can't work on a campus the
size of UF, where even the size of a classroom may hold more
than 300 students. But though Ripon may be a small school,
its transportation solution which doesn't involve building
more parking lots should be taken seriously.
It would be easy for UF to team up with a sponsor to cre-
ate a similar program. Even if only 1,000 freshmen agree to
the incentive plan, that's a lot fewer cars on campus.
As the parking problem continues to get worse and en-
rollment continues to swell, other schools have taken more
Beginning last fall, the University of Miami decided that
non-commuting freshmen would not be issued parking per-
mits. The decision to do so freed up a whopping 600 parking
Maybe instead of playing musical parking spaces every
time new construction is complete, UF could consider similar
policy changes that would help prevent the problem from
becoming even more unmanageable.

For many of us, the reason we began the

Government cannot parent children
In her column on Thursday, Ms. Ganzak
asked all the wrong questions. "Why is the
Intemet so open?" she wondered. The ques-
tion should be "Why is everything else so
The federal government regulates the air-
waves because they are public property and
must therefore be used for the public good.
The Internet exists on private servers and is
not nearly so burdened. The regulation of the
Internet is not only unfeasible but also unnec-
essary and dangerous. The Internet's greatest
strength is perhaps the fact it is open, free and
unburdened of the regulations and consider-
ations that weigh on other media.
I understand that Ms. Ganzak may find
certain elements of the Internet unpalatable.
But that is precisely the issue that was pon-
dered by our founding fathers when consid-
ering freedom of speech: People may not like
what you have to say.
This does not mean I encourage or con-
done the videos she used as examples; rather
it means I understand the fundamental prin-
ciple that my distaste for something does not
justify subverting it.
As a nation, do we really want to abdicate
the responsibility of parenting our children to
the federal government?

If Ms. Ganzak doesn't want her children
watching YouTube, then it is her responsibil-
ity to actually do some parenting. There are
numerous commercial resources available she
could purchase to meet her ends.
It is ridiculous to ask the government to
seize further power from its people (not to

Soldiers have mixed views on Iraq
* SOME SUPPORT, SOME OPPOSE
ADMINISTRATION'S WAR PLAN.
By DREW HARWELL
Alligator Staff Writer
Congressional testimony last week
from two of the United States' top of-
ficials in Iraq has already brought about
changes to the military's plans for with-
drawal. But for some former troops
and current enlistees enrolled at UF,
the latest decisions have not changed
their feelings positive or negative
- about the war.
U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus,
the head commander in Iraq, and U.S.
Ambassador Ryan Crocker recom-
mended last week that troop withdraw-
als from the area be postponed, with no
projected exit date in sight.
Military reinforcements from last
year's "surge" will still leave this sum-
mer as planned, but about 140,000 other
troops serving in Iraq will stay put until
"Withdrawing too many forces too
quickly could jeopardize the progress
of the past year," Petraeus said, after
testifying that progress in Iraq over the
last five years, while significant, is still
"fragile and reversible."
Chris Gordon, a 22-year-old UF
political science senior and four-year
soldier with the Marine Corps Reserve,
"It's almost common sense you
want to make changes, it's going to.take
time," said Gordon, who is still enlisted
with the Marines. "We need to get the
job done right, however that may be."
Though Gordon has yet to see com-
bat and is not slated to in the future, the
idea of deployment remains very real
for him his unit is preparing for its
sixth trip to Iraq.

. "I don't think defeat is a guaranteed
end to this. I don't think we're just de-
laying admitting that we lost the war,"
he said. "I don't know the right way to
do it, but I know leaving isn't it."
"I don't think defeat is a guar-
anteed end to this. I don't think
we're just delaying admitting
that we lost the war."
UF political science senior
Not all Marines, however, support
Petraeus' suggestions and the Bush
administration's war plan.
Ramon Lopez, a 30-year-old UF
aerospace engineering junior, is a for-
mer infantryman with the Marines.
Though he was never deployed, Lopez
said last week's update offered no new
"We're pretty much in the same place
as we were six months ago," Lopez
said. "The units we have over there,
they can secure some areas. But the
overall goal, the overall strategy, can't
be accomplished militarily. Period."
Thomas McGilvray, a 25-year-old
UF aerospace engineering junior who
trained with the Air Force for almost
four years, echoed Lopez's doubts
about the war's future.
McGilvray said that although he
once believed the military presence
in Iraq was necessary, he now thinks
the military should "take the training
wheels off" of Iraq and allow the coun-
try to run itself independently.
"I believe that we should have
an idea of when we're getting out,"
McGilvray said. "They keep telling us,
'We're making progress' but that
doesn't tell us anything."

Despite the Orange and Blue football
scrimmage on Saturday and gray skies
Sunday morning, about 400 people
showed up to buy around $9,000 worth
of plants, shrubs and flowers over the
weekend at the annual Spring Plant Sale
Hosted by the Environmental

Student Association, the event raised
money to fund a trip for some stu-
dents and faculty in the Department of

country, as it does every year.

This year, the club plans to travel to
Holland, where it will focus on tulips.
Most items sold were donated by
nurseries and greenhouses around
Florida. Because the plants were free,
they were sold at prices 25 percent to 75
percent less than most retailers can offer.
Alison Heather, a graduate student
and member of the Environmental
Horticultural Club, said about a dozen
people lined up Saturday morning at 7:
45 a.m. waiting for the sale to open.=
"It was nice to see students come
out," Heather said. "I had a couple peo-
ple ask me about taking care of plants in
their dorm, which is cool."

It may still be spring, but the atmosphere at
Saturday's Orange and Blue game made Gainesville
look like it was in full swing for fall college football.
ESPN broadcast the annual spring scrimmage to a
national audience, and an estimated 61,000 fans came
to see it in person at The Swamp.
But Saturday was more than just a game. It was a
day to celebrate UF football.
Tim Tebow's 2007 Heisman Trophy and the 2006
National Championship trophy were both on display
for fans to take pictures with. Many players were
available for autographs in the morning.
Students tried unsuccessfully to beat Gators play-
ers in the 40-yard dash, but the experience for the 15
running finalists was likely a prize all by itself. Others
got a chance to catch a punt or kickoff or pass.
The weather made for a beautiful afternoon, with
nary a cloud in the sky, although the high tempera-
tures left many fans wiping their sweat.
But it didn't matter on Saturday, because fans got a
chance to feel the excitement and hype in the air again.
Fall never seemed so far away.

the mayor of McIntosh, said
she has lived in the area for 31
years. But until the Paint Out,
she never set foot on the land
she was wandering.
McCollum said she was most
impressed that the artists were
so good with an audience.
"Me, if I were doing some-
thing like that, I would be
addled," she said. "I wouldn't
want people talking to me."
But Elizabeth Ferber, an
Orlando-based oil painter, said
she enjoyed interacting with

is to show the public how we

Online voting committee meets without faculty
By ILEANA MORALES
While members of UF's on-
line voting committee debated
privacy concerns at their Sunday
meeting, all agreed that online
voting in Student Governmeint
elections would be cheaper than
Patricia Telles-Irvin, vice
president for student affairs, sug-
gested creating the committee to
investigate online voting after a
student group sued UF on Feb.
22. The group sued following a
UF Supreme Court ruling that an
online-voting amendment would
The court said online voting
could interfere with SG's ability
to prevent voter coercion.
Ryan Moseley, Student Body
president, chose nine students
for the committee and three fac-
ulty members. The committee
will meet every Thursday and
Sunday until its report is due to
Moseley on May 1.
At the committee's Sunday
meeting, seven members agreed
online voting could compromise
voter secrecy and voted against
changing the system.
Tommy Jardon, president of
Students for Online Voting, the
group known as SOLVe that sued
UF, and Cain Norris, a UF sopho-
more, voted in favor of online
voting despite other members'
privacy fears because they said it
would increase voter turnout.
The three faculty members
Moseley chose for the committee
were not at the Sunday meeting
or at the preliminary meeting
"This committee is abso-
SOLVe executive director
Sam Miorelli, SOLVe executive
director, said Telles-Irvin assured
him this committee would get to
the root of the online voting issue
because faculty members would
participate. But Miorelli said
their absence makes him doubt
the committee's effectiveness.
"This committee is absolutely
worthless," he said.
He said he e-mailed Telles-
Irvin about his concern, but she
hasn't replied. In an e-mail to the
Alligator, Telles-Irvin wrote that
she had no comment.
Daniel Smith, a UF political
science professor and one of the
faculty members Moseley listed
as part of the committee, wrote
in an e-mail that he was never
"formally asked" to serve on it,
and he doesn't plan to.
Moseley said it was a miscom-
He said he thought Telles-
Irvin's office had made sure the
faculty members would be avail-
able. One or two faculty mem-
bers would be on board within
the week, he added.
Moseley said this committee
- not the first to investigate
online voting for SG elections -
would provide more background
on the option.
"This committee is to check
in and say, 'With technology the
way it is, is this a possibility?'"
If the committee finds online
voting to be viable, Moseley said
he could ask the UF Supreme
Court to rule on it again or ex-
plore the possibility through
Miorelli's still skeptical.
"I still have absolutely no
reason to believe no matter what
this committee comes up with
that it's going to be followed,"

UF crowned NCAA Regional champs
* THE NO. 3 GATORS ADVANCE TO THE NCAA
CHAMPIONSHIPS IN ATHENS, GA ON APRIL 24.
By BOBBY CALLOVI
With 6,032 fans cheering and clapping along with the
music, Amanda Castillo danced her way to a nearly perfect
Like most of the night, the crowd erupted once the Gators
gymnast finished her performance.
The energy that filled the O'Connell Center caught
"I was thinking to myself, 'Are they clapping for me?'"
Castillo said. "It's exciting when the whole arena is there for
you and watching the Gators."
In front of a home crowd, No. 3 UF cruised to an easy first-
place finish with a score of 197.525 at the NCAA Southeast
Regional Championships to qualify for the national champi-
onship in Athens, Ga.
The Gators (12-3-1, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) can ex-
pect a much different environment when they.travel to the
home of No. 1 Georgia.
While the Bulldogs' supporters might not be rooting for
the Gators, all-around winner Melanie Sinclair said they will
feed off the negative energy aimed toward them.
"I love away meets, because whenever they chant 'Go
Dawgs" or whatever, I like to add my own twist to their
cheers so it seems like they are cheering for you," she said.
If UF competes like it did Saturday, it will be hard for any
team, home-crowd advantage or not, to defeat the Gators.
Right from the start, they looked to be performing at the
top of their game.
After a bye in the first rotation, UF started on the uneven
bars and quickly showed its dominance over the competition
with a meet-high score in the event of 49.425.
It would go on to win the other three events as well, but
the strong start gave the Gators self-assurance in the follow-
"It's always important to start off well in the first event
you compete in, because it builds your confidence going into
all the other events," Sinclair said. "We definitely did that
tonight by starting off with a bang."
Andrew Stanfill/ Alligator Staff
UF's Melanie Sinclair won the all-around title at the NCAA
Southeast Regional Championships on Saturday.
It was Sinclair who led the Gators on the bars with a 9.95
capturing a share of the title.
She also tied for first place on the vault (9.95) and floor
(9.9). On the balance beam, Sinclair was able to claim a fifth-
place finish with a 9.85.
Her all-arouind score (39.65) was good enough for the
meet's title and gave her a new college high.

Mitchell averaged 19.5 points and

Perry sprints to second straight 200-meter victory
* THE JUNIOR ALSO LED THE
WINNING 4x100 TEAM.
By MIKE DiFERDINANDO
The folks in Athens, Ga., had a
front row seat for the Willie Perry
show over the weekend.
The electrifying junior sprinter
won the 200-meter dash for the
second consecutive week Saturday
at the Spec Towns Invitational.
"Willie had a big day," UF track
and field coach Mike Holloway
said. "I thought that he did a great
job for us."
Perry raced his way to the win
with a time of 20.76 seconds.
From his fresh all-white Nike
track shoes to his signature shades,
"Willie P," as he is often referred to,
is a star in the making.
More Maurice Greene than
Michael Johnson, Perry has the
style and flair to take the track and
field world by storm and, more
importantly, the .speed to keep
backing it up.
Slowed by hamstring injuries
as a sophomore, Perry is begin-
ning to look more and more like
the record-setting sprinter he was
as a freshman.
In 2006, Perry was named the
Southeastern Conference Indoor
and Outdoor Freshman of the
He also became one of only 20
athletes in history to run the 100-
meter dash in 10.12 seconds before
the age of 20.
"(Perry) is working harder,
he's focused and he's healthy,"
Holloway said. "Last year, he had
some injury problems and some
focus issues, and this year, those
problems just aren't there."
"We won the race, but we
still have some work to
UF track coach
Perry also led the men's 4x100-
meter relay team to its second win
in as many weeks.
Its time of 39.82 seconds was
good enough to earn the Gators an
NCAA regional-qualifying mark
in the event.
"We won the race, but we still
have some work to do," Holloway
said. "I expect the handoffs to be a
lot more crisp and a lot quicker.
"They're just not doing it right
now. I expect them to be faster than
they have been."
Not to be outdone, the women's
4x100-meter team notched a win of
its own with a time of 44.31 sec-
The time was a season-best for
the women and punched their
ticket to the NCAA regional meet.

Angel Track Classic.
The Gators picked up six
NCAA regional marks at the meet
and were headlined by Adam

well," Holloway said. "We had

The undefeated Gators were the No. 1

With fewer meets and more tests this sea-

to the championship.

relax physically and mentally, and heading

There are a lot of intangibles that
factor into winning, and the Gators are
far from showing signs that they have
any of those. Meyer even called the
chemistry awful last season.
But there is one thing that oppo-
nents can't do anything about: speed.
If someone's faster than you, they'll
outrun you. You may want to win
more than they do. You probably even
work harder. Too bad.
And when Rainey is even men-
tioned in the same sentence as Harvin,
that tells you something.
Most teams would sacrifice an
assistant coach for Harvin, and the
Gators have two of them.

Gators sweep Bulldogs,, extend win streak to 19
* STACEY NELSON EARNED
TWO WINS AND A SAVE.
By KYLE MAISTRI
The Gators proved that no mat-
ter how unthinkable the feat, history
does, indeed, repeat itself.
After completing a three-game
sweep of No. 17 Georgia (35-16, 8-9
Southeastern Conference) over the
weekend, No. 3 UF (46-2, 18-1 SEC)
has matched the 19-game winning
streak it used to open up the season.
"This streak proves a lot more
than the first one did," said fresh-
man shortstop Megan Bush, who
acknowledged the tougher SEC
competition the team has faced.
The consistently high level of
play showed in Sunday's 5-2 victory
against the Bulldogs.
Stacey Nelson, who was nomi-
nated as one of 25 finalists for the
USA Softball Collegiate Player of the
Year award last week, was only hu-
man in her third appearance of the
weekend, surrendering eight hits
and striking out only one batter.
The earned run she allowed in
the fifth inning was the first she has
given up in her last 63 1/3 innings of
work and came on her 21st birthday
Nelson ran her record to 30-2 in
a weekend in which she pitched 17
innings, accumulating two wins and
a save- her third of the season.
"We're trying to win a conference
championship," said UF coach Tim
Walton when asked about the recent
innings increase for the pitching
staff's resident All-American.
Aiding Nelson on Sunday was ju-
nior first baseman Ali Gardinerwho
went 2 for 4 with four RBIs.
In 19 conference games, Gardiner
is hitting .483 with a .536 on-base
percentage. Her power numbers
have surged, as five of her six home
runs and 19 of her team-high 40 RBI
have come during the SEC slate.
"It's definitely a team effort,"
said Gardiner, who pointed to peo-
ple getting on base in front of her as
well as power behind her as reasons
for her astronomical SEC numbers.
Gardiner also went 3 for 4 in
the first game of the series, driving
in two of the Gators' runs in a 5-0
In the second game of Saturday's
doubleheader, UF came from behind
to earn a 9-5 win.
Sophomore Francesca Enea had
a solid game, driv-
ing in three runs
and hitting her
11th home run of
the season, but
Softball it was Bush who
provided the most
run support as she drove in four and
hit two home runs, giving her eight
for the year.
"I had a feeling that I was going
to get at least a couple good hits,"
Bush found herself in a slump at
the beginning of SEC play but said
her confidence had improved since
hitting the ball well against LSU.
Freshman Stephanie Brombacher
got the start but pitched just four
innings on the way to her 14fh win
before giving way to Nelson.
Nelson dosed the door, pitched
three innings of scoreless ball, and
earned the save while UF's lineup
gave her plenty of run support.
After handling Georgia with
relative ease, the team's hottest hit-
ter exuded confidence in her-team's
ability to win against any opponent.
"As a team, we have the confi-
dence that we can beat anyone,"
Gardiner said. "We have the best
pitching in the nation, oneof the bet-
ter hitting teams and one of the bet-
ter defensive teams. Having a Stacey
Nelson can get you as far as she and
your bats will take you."
Georgia wins first-ever beach volleyball tournament
The rest of the Southeastern Conference
will be wishing volleyball is only played
outdoors from now on.
Georgia had more success against UF
in this weekend's inaugural SEC Coaches
Beach Volleyball Championships than it has
had indoors the last 17 years the Gators
have not lost to the Bulldogs in that time
Eleven schools had a combined 40 par-
ticipating teams, which were broken up into

The Commissioner's Cup trophy, given
to the team with the most points accumulat-
ed in all four brackets, was award to UGA,
and its team of Britta Buethe and Erika Clark

The absence of trophies for the Gators
can be partially chalked up to the lack of
practice in beach volleyball.
"Our players don't have a lot of experi-
ence playing on the sand, and that showed
today," UF coach Mary Wise said.
For teams hoping their achievements in
the sand will translate to wins indoor next
fall, they might have to wait a little while
Wise expects her team to improve next

"Everything we learned in this process,

thought would be a lowly South Carolina
The No. 8 Gators (13-6, 8-3 SEC) edged
the last-place Gamecocks 4-3 Saturday, with
all four UF points coming in three-set singles
With the win, the Gators secured the
fourth seed and a first-round bye in this
week's SEC Tournament, which starts
Thursday in Fayetteville, Ark.
The UF women's team had an easier
time with South Carolina, defeating the
Gamecocks 4-0 Saturday to cap off the
Gators' 17th undefeated conference season.
UF (18-1, 11-0 SEC) earned the top
seed and a first-round bye in the SEC
Tournament, which also starts Thursday but
will be played at Auburn.
The men's win over South Carolina (10-
12, 1-10 SEC) may have been even more cru-
cial, however, as it improved UF's chances
of hosting the NCAA Tournament first and
second rounds, something the women have
likely already locked up.
"It looks like South Carolina gosh, they
don't have a very good ranking, they don't
have a very good record," UF men's coach
Andy Jackson said. "But my guys know how
good South Carolina is, and South Carolina
knows how good they are as well.
"They have severely underachieved.
They could've beaten any team in the
league. They easily could've beaten us
[Saturday], and we won because our guys
The Gators were forced
to shift their lineup after
injuries plagued senior
Greg Ouellette and fresh-
man Jeff Dadamo.
Jackson is hopeful
the duo will be healthy
Ouellette when UF plays its quar-
terfinal match in the SEC
Tournament on Friday.
"We probably won't know that much
about it until Monday," Jackson said. "But I
do think we have a decent chance anyway to
be at 100 percent by Friday."
Despite not being at full strength,
Ouellette celebrated his Senior Day with a
6-7 (7), 6-3, 6-2 victory.
Three-set wins by freshmen Erik Corace
(6-4, 3-6, 6-1), Tyler Hochwalt (5-7, 6-3, 6-4)
and Johnny Hamui (6-4,6-7 (5), 6-3) clinched
the match for UF after the Gators were swept
off the doubles courts.
"It was just toughness and willpower,"
Jackson said. "Those guys just really played
tough under quite a bit of pressure.
"I think this match was more important
for toughness than confidence. I think that
we just had gotten away from that a little bit
with the Alabama match [a 5-2 loss], and I
think we re-established it (Saturday). That's
something that you can't really read from
the box score."
