Relay for Life raises money to cure cancer


By AMANDA HINES
Alligator Contributing Writer
More than 400 small, white paper bags bearing the
names of those affected by cancer lit up the indoor track of
the O'Connell Center as about 1,200 participants walked a
silent lap and carried candles in remembrance.
Friday night marked UF's fifth annual Relay for Life
fundraiser, which gave participants and cancer survivors
an opportunity to pool their donations and walk for a cure.
As the opening lap came to an end, the lights came on
and nearly 15 hours of walking commenced to symbolize
the search for a cure.
Many were costumed to match the event's theme of dif-
ferent destinations.
UF sophomore Mark Adams, dressed in pirate attire
and sporting a heart-shaped tattoo that read "Matey for
life," began walking the track in honor of his father, who
died during Adams' senior year of high school.
A member of Friends for Life, a student organization
that raises awareness of pediatric cancer, Adams said the
group chose to dress as pirates for its theme of "Treasure Is-
land" to entertain other walkers during the 18-hour relay.
While some participants walked the track, others visited
the 62 booths circling the upper and lower floors, which of-
fered different activities, such as face painting and video
games, as well as a place to rest.
Adams said his group planned to raise money at their
booth throughout the night by giving temporary tattoos
and offering a jail cell for participants to "put a matey in
the brig."
David Rountree, event chairman, said donations col-
lected at and before the event totaled about $114,339, as
of Sunday night. Online donations for the event have not

Nude olympics held


* ABOUT 25 PEOPLE
ATTENDED THE EVENT.

By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org
Five men, some hairy, some shaved
clean below the waist, sprinted across
a field of clay, soggy from Saturday's
squall.
The footing was treacherous, made
more difficult by a lack of shoes. In the
traditional Olympian fashion, they were
nude.
But what can I say? I was too.
Sunday was the 14th Nude College
Greek Athletic meet in Monticello.
Driving into Tallahassee Naturally,


where the meet was held, I worried
about what any first-time, unfit male
nudist worries about: being surrounded
by sculpted bodies, and of course, erec-
tions. Neither fear turned out to be an
issue.
Pulling my car up to the registration
table, I was greeted by
State Stephen, the broad-shoul-
News dered winner of five Nude
Olympics in the athletic
male division. He wore a leather gladi-
ator chest piece, a cotton undershirt,
and nothing else. Stephen later told me,
while standing bare in the discus-throw-
ing circle, he would buy dinner for any-
one who could find him a "worthy op-

'Hand Camp' helps kids


By RACHAEL PINO
Alligator Writer

He may wear scrubs instead of a cape, but
to his patients and their family members, Dr.
Paul Dell is a superhero.
Dell, a hand surgeon at Shands at UF, and
his wife Ruthie co-founded Hands to Love's
Hand Camp to help children emotionally
cope with their congenital hand condition.
The ninth annual Hand Camp, themed
"Marvel-At-Us" took place Friday through
Sunday, and gave kids the opportunity to
participate in activities they might shy away
from elsewhere.


Kids cheered each other on as they tack-
led rope climbing, swimming and archery.
Guest speaker UF football coach Urban
Meyer surprised the group, signing more
than 300 autographs and distributing auto-
graphed posters of Tim Tebow.
Meyer was introduced by camper Jacob
Rodriguez, 9, who compared the Gator Na-
tion's superhero coach to his personal super-
heroes, the Dells.
"All this was started by two special peo-
ple to me, Dr. Dell and his wife Ruthie," Ro-
driguez said. "They bring many people to-

Local teens help with alcohol sting
Teenagers working with the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office helped catch four
convenience stores selling alcohol and
cigarettes to minors.
The sting tested 29 stores Friday night,
finding four that sold to minors illegally,
ASO spokesman Art Forgey said.
"Obviously we would like to see that
number be zero, but that would be in a
perfect world," Forgey said.
He said ASO feels good about the op-


eration because it showed that most stores
abide by the alcohol and tobacco laws.
"Twenty-one means 21, and 18 to sell
tobacco means 18," Forgey said.
He said that sometimes the store clerks
can get sloppy and not think about what
they are doing when selling these prod-
ucts.
Each store clerk who sold alcohol or to-
bacco to minors was given a written arrest
and a notice to appear in court, he said.

About 500 attend concert
Audience members danced
and clapped in their seats as the
Gainesville Chamber Orchestra
played familiar tunes for the free,
annual Pops on the Plaza con-
cert.
Because of the rain Saturday
night, the concert was moved
from the Gainesville Downtown
Community Plaza to the P.K.
Yonge Auditorium.
Conductor Evans Haile said
the Pops concert gives the or-
chestra a chance to reach out to
those who wouldn't normally at-
tend.
"The great thing about this
concert is that it's not just Pops
music but a little of everything,"
he said.
For almost 500 people, the
orchestra played a smorgasbord
of music including pieces from
Broadway's "Show Boat" and
"E.T."
The orchestra also played
"A Tribute to Henry Mancini,"
which featured the theme song
from "The Pink Panther."
Buchholz High School senior
Scott Graham, 18, played trumpet
in the concert.
"The Pops concert is really
good for the community," Gra-
ham said. "It's something that a
lot of people can relate to."
He said a piece that most au-

"Kids of all ages love Harry

Nancy Speigel said she got

"Goosebumps are the sign

Car show raises $800


for local charity project


By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
efuggetta@alligator.org
Thirteenth Street became a runway for
vintage vehicles Saturday when a local
nonprofit group held a charity showcase
for motorcycles and classic cars.
The car show, hosted by The Sunshine
Eagles service organization, raised about
$800 for the Dignity Project, a local non-
profit organization that repairs cars and
computers and gives them to underprivi-
leged families.
Owners of each of the 15 cars and mo-
torcycles on display paid a $10 gate fee
and collected donations to compete for tro-
phies.
People walking by a white ambulance
from the '50s and a vintage red Mustang
heard motorcycle owners revving their en-
gines in friendly competition.
On display were an American Ironhorse
Texas Chopper and a Harley Davidson
Heritage Soft Tail.
In addition to perusing the classic cars
and motorcycles, visitors to the five-hour
event bought raffle tickets, quesadillas and
doughnuts.
Participants competed for the people's
choice award by accumulating the most
change in pint-sized plastic containers next
to their vehicles. The money was counted
at the end of the show to determine who
would win and receive recycled softball
and hockey trophies.
People also bid in a silent auction for
items from local businesses like Bush Gator
Transmissions, which donated two $500


service certificates, and Gainesville Harley
Davidson & Buell, which donated about
$500 worth of merchandise, according to
Dignity Project spokesman Chuck Gregg.
Gregg said beyond raising money, the
goal of the event was to raise awareness
about the Dignity Project, which has donat-
ed 782 cars since it was founded in 1998.
"We take the computers apart
and tell them to put them back
together. We tell them, 'Don't be
afraid! They're already broken.'"
Chuck Gregg
Dignity Project Spokesman

Gregg said the project allows mentors to
teach at-risk youth to work on cars and use
computers so they'll have the skills needed
to enter the job market in the future.
"We take the computers apart and tell
them to put them back together," he said.
"We tell them, 'Don't be afraid! They're al-
ready broken.'"
Gainesville resident Vicky Quinn, vice
president of the classic car club Gainesville
Street Rods, brought her vintage rat rod
out to support the project. She said that in
today's economy, it's important to provide
teenagers skills that will help them find
jobs.
Jan Hukle, Sunshine Eagles auxiliary
vice president, said she hopes to make it a
yearly tradition.
"We're so proud to have raised that
much," she said. "It was a light crowd, but
it was a good one."

Crowds taste international beers at Greater Gator Fest
By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer
jhsizemore@alligator.org

Warsteiner, Presidente, Budweiser, Sapporo
and Dundee are just a few of the dozens of beers
slung back by festival goers on Saturday.
Gainesville residents attended the Greater
Gator Beer Festival, where, for $25, they were
supplied with small plastic cups and unlimited, 2
oz. refills of international beers from places such
as Russia, Japan and Spain. The festival also had
Floridian beers such as Orange Blossom Pilsner
and Shipyard.
Sweaty masses of people crowded the beer *
booths, holding out their cups and trying to catch
the eye of the beer pourers to plead for refills.
Festival organizers were unsure of how many
people attended but said they gave away about
2,000 beer cups. Snacking on pizza, chicken wings,
shepherd's pie and chocolate-filled pastries, peo-
ple swayed to Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline"
shouting the "bah, bah, bah" of the chorus.
Despite the economy, this year showed the
greatest diversity of beer and more food than pre-
vious years, said Ricki Black, an organizer for the
event. The only visible response to the downturn
was that some beer vendors brought fewer cases
this year, she said.
Ruben Parra, a UF telecommunications major
from Spain, was disappointed with the one beer
from his country, but was impressed with the
festival, he said. Alhambra isn't even in the top
five of Spanish beers, but the hot dogs, wings and
chicken nachos made up for it, he said.
The festival provided people with a way to try
beers they wouldn't venture to buy. Matt Tripp/ Alligator

Facing the social equivalent of jumping out of an
airplane, I was in no hurry. Nobody explained when
or where to strip down, but I didn't want to turn in
my paperwork at the registration desk clothed.
Finally, I took the plunge, which turned out to be
the most difficult part, besides dealing with the sun-
bum. Organizers demonstrated the ancient methods
in the long jump, the discus, the javelin and the 200
meter dash.
Six men competed in the non-
State athlete class and two competed as
News athletes. While no women competed,
several looked on from the crowd,
some cheering on their friends.
After long jumping into a trough of mud, the com-
petitors washed off in a nearby pond and moved onto
the discus, followed by the 200-yard dash and the jav-
elin.
AJ, a non-athlete, and Kevin, an athlete, from Flor-
ida State University, took first place in their respective
divisions. While sitting on a bench in the buff follow-
ing the Olympics, Paul LeValley, Naturally's remain-

has been donated via Internet so far.
He said all of the money will be given to
the American Cancer Society, which paid for
the event's expenses.
Teams were asked to chose a theme based
on this year's title "Cruising for a Cure,"
said UF sophomore Andrew Ruiz, 19, event
co-chairman for the event. Many booths por-
trayed islands such as Fiji, Ireland and Ant-


arctica, while others centered on outer-world-
ly destinations such as "Cosmic Lounge" and
"Never Neverland."
Ruiz, who said the idea for the theme came
from summer workshops, has participated
in the event since his freshman year of high
school and has since raised about $36,000.
Ruiz was 13 years old when he lost his
mother to breast cancer. Despite the hard-
ship, he decided to make a difference.
"It was like a wall I had to overcome," he
said. "It hit me hard when she passed away."

UF freshman and 19-year-old cancer sur-

with an adult form of leukemia in 2001, a type
of cancer rarely seen in children.
In 2006, Vickers said she received a bone
marrow transplant, and her cancer has since
been in remission.
While she has all her strength back and can
live life as a normal student, she stressed there
is no foolproof cure for cancer.
"It's the closest thing to being cured," she
said.

drives a car and competed as a diver
on UF's swim team.
She taught a camper how to drink
from a regular cup using her feet.
"As a 3-year-old, she gets that
we're the same," she said. "You can't
put a price on this weekend."

Editorial

Packin' Heat

Guns have no place on

college campuses
For Texas gun owners licensed to carry concealed weap-
ons, proposed state legislation may soon allow for fire-
arms to be found in an unlikely place college cam-
puses.
The two bills, one in the House and the other in the Senate,
are being promoted by supporters as a way to ensure that a
massacre along the lines of Virginia Tech does not occur in
Texas. According to the Gainesville Sun, the University of
Texas has taken a strong stance against the bills by passing
resolutions against them. Opponents of the bill, including
one former Virginia Tech student who now attends UT as
a graduate student, argue that legislation allowing for guns
on campus will result in students using their weapons in un-
necessary situations.
While 18 states have proposed and failed to pass similar
bills, Texas is among seven other states currently exploring
on-campus firearms legislation.
The Editorial Board strongly believes the passage of bills
to allow for concealed weapons on college campuses is not
the right approach to deter future shootings. If anything,
legally allowing guns to have a place in college dorms and
classrooms will only breed an environment that complete-
ly contradicts the intention behind the legislation. Instead
of cutting down on campus shootings, who is to say that if
passed, these bills won't lead to coeds pulling guns on their
significant other over a minor disagreement or professors
feeling unsafe in their own classrooms?
To consider the allowance for firearms on college campus-
es as the cure-all to ending school shootings is simply a gross
miscalculation on the part of Texas state legislators.


Hopeful Rower


For one former colle-
giate rower, raising
awareness about can-
cer meant taking his talents
to the ocean all 2,950 miles
of it.
Paul Ridley, a 25-year-old
who lost his mother to can-
cer, set out to row across the
Atlantic Ocean in hopes of
collecting $500,000 in dona-
tions for research at the Yale
Cancer Center.
His journey proved to be
anything but easy as Rid-
ley only had a pair of oars
to navigate the waters and
did not enjoy the luxury of
a support boat following
him along the way. Even
though the trek across the
ocean left him riddled with
salt sores, exhaustion and
blisters, Ridley became the
youngest American and just
third overall to successfully
complete the trip. Relying
on freeze-dried food and a
satellite phone to post blog


updates about his adven-
ture, Ridley rowed up to 12
hours per day in his custom-
ized boat to accomplish his
goal in 88 days.
Ridley and his sister cre-
ated the organization "Row
for Hope" in memory of
their mother, having raised
$100,000 thanks to his daring
journey across the Atlantic
Ocean.
The Editorial Board ap-
plauds Paul Ridley for his
efforts to attract attention
to cancer research and raise
money for such a worthy
cause. Ridley's accomplish-
ments work to dispel the no-
tion that one single person
cannot make a major differ-
ence to combat cancer. While
he may have fallen short of
his original goal of $500,000,
we hope Ridley's story will
encourage others to push
their own perceived limits
and do something coura-
geous to help others.

Pros of legal weed
toners everywhere have been getting mixed signals
lately thanks to the Obama administration's stance
on legalizing marijuana. Last week, Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton visited Mexico for her first diplomatic tour
of the country that has been rocked by more than 7,300
deaths in the Mexican government's war on drugs. Clin-
ton alluded to a change in U.S. drug policy after conceding
that America's voracious appetite for drugs only fuels the
problem.
Not so fast, said President Barack Obama when an-
swering an online question during a town hall forum last
week. Legalizing marijuana is off the table in his admin-
istration.
It really is silly, the pot question, to be brought up dur-
ing this time of crisis. But if there's ever been a time to re-
examine our war on drugs, Mexico's growing drug prob-
lem and our burgeoning prison bills couldn't be stronger
signs that the time for some introspection is upon us.
The classical argument against legalizing marijuana
doesn't focus on the drug itself but rather the supposed
slippery slope the legalization would promote. How could
the government legalize one drug but ignore the others?
For many, the answer is paradoxically clear. Alcohol, a
drug that claims thousands, if not millions of addicts, and
kills more than 70,000 people per year, according to the
Center for Disease Control, is perfectly legal for adults 21
and up. There are currently more than 40 million Ameri-
cans who smoke, all of whom will only burden our health
care system years down the road.
Florida's Medical Examiners Commission released a
report last year that found prescription drugs had claimed
three times as many lives as all illegal drugs combined in
2007 a statistic Rush Limbaugh and middle-aged con-


ALLIGATOR

need consideration
servative women with back prob-
lems aren't helping. The same
report found that marijuana use
had caused zero deaths in the
state.
I cannot condone smoking
pot. The recreational user is most
Matthew Christ likely to inhale some amount of
letters@alligator.org smoke, which can't be beneficial
to any person's lungs.
It is inconceivable, though, to
condone the criminalization of
marijuana when it has fostered the very drug culture where
anti-marijuana activists derive their arguments. Want to
talk about a gateway drug? Ask your friendly neighbor-
hood drug dealer what he thinks about free samples of
crack cocaine. Worried about increasing gun battles over
drug deals gone wrong? No need for exceptional violence
when you can simply pick up some weed from your local
convenience store.
The total money saved and raked in through taxes
could go toward education programs for students, as
similar tobacco and alcohol programs have shown success
in curbing use of these products in recent years among
teenagers. The industry created by legalization could put
thousands back to work and would take away much of the
power enjoyed by cartels and other unsavory figures of
our government-perpetuated drug culture.
Once marijuana is taken off the forbidden shelf, our in-
ner Adam and Eve complex won't fall to temptation cre-
ating an environment where marijuana use declines.

Letters to the Editor
Doctors should be paid based on work
I am not part of the UF Faculty Practice
Plan, but I do know that it is common prac-
tice (especially in large doctor groups) for
doctors to be paid a base salary and then
additional income based on how many pa-
tients they see. That way, people who work
harder and see more patients get additional
income.
Further, I am not aware of anyone in the
Faculty Practice Plan who squandered bil-


lions of UF dollars and contributed to the
collapse of the economy like the executives
at AIG did.
Now, imagine that article without the
word "bonus." If the headline had read
"Doctors earn typical income for working
hard and taking care of their patients," I
doubt there would be much controversy.

Documentary Institute needs to survive
By eliminating the Documentary Insti-
tute, it is now clear that Dean John Wright
is utilizing the current budget crisis to re-
shape the College of Journalism and Com-
munications to his own vision and heed the
advice to "never waste a good crisis." He
claims that the DI is "not as central to the
college's mission." I would invite every-
one to read the college's mission statement
on its Web site. It states, foremost, that the


college should produce "exemplary profes-
sional practitioners" for "various journalism
and communication fields." From another
perspective, the DI could fit directly into the
college's mission, which is open to wide in-
terpretation. Unfortunately, the DI does not
fit into the more personal mission of Dean
Wright.

Future for 'Generation Y' appears bleak thanks to apathy


T day's installment of the
Eric Chianese Chronicles
will bring to the forefront
something that's been on my mind
quite a bit lately--and I warn you in
advance, this isn't for the faint of
heart.
There's a question that's been
plaguing me: where has our collec-
tive sense of adventure gone? Let me
be clear I'm referring to my gen-
eration; known by the sociologists
in their vulgar claptrap as "Genera-
tion Y." Despite my discomfort at
being catalogued and analyzed in
a manner befitting a new species of
insect, I find the name appropriate.
We have truly become a genera-
tion that asks why-and asks it too
often. The native hue of resolution
that is the birthright of American
youth has, in Shakespearean fash-
ion, become "sicklied o'er with the
pale cast of thought." Perhaps some


elaboration is necessary.
We are an apathetic genera-
tion-- no one is denying this and,
hell, it's part of what makes us so
bright. Of course, this apathy was
temporarily broken with the tre-
mendous outpouring of enthusiasm
created by the Obama campaign.
Well and good, but let's not for-
get something: that enthusiasm was
over a once-every-four-years presi-
dential election and, more than that,
it was something that was thor-
oughly within the existing system.
Instead of burning with the fire and
passion of youth, we've become a
generation of armchair nihilists and
play-it-safe philosophers.
The blame is not entirely ours.
I've long had a bone to pick with the
hippie counterculture movement of
our parents' (in some cases, I sup-
pose, grandparents') generation.
They had the right idea at the out-


set: a com-
e plete rebel-
lion against
the staid,
neo-Victo-
rian order
of the day.
Eric Chianese Except they
letters@alligator.org gave up.
The hippies
got older,
the Age of
Aquarius didn't dawn and they re-
alized that wait a minute they
had to get jobs. And so they capitu-
lated and paved the way for the
most disgusting ideological group
in recent history, the Reaganauts
of the '80s. Our forebears lost that
Hunter S. Thompson sense of their
"inevitable victory over the forces
of Old and Evil." Their ideology
shattered and, subsequently, there
were no great models for us to fol-


My essential complaint, I sup-
pose, is this: we're jaded. Largely
gone is our sense of the wonder and
mystery in the world. We think,
now, before we act and we rethink
and we vacillate. We've become
a generation without ideals--one
which has no higher purpose than
"get the grades, get the degree, get
a good job, make a lot of money."
That, fortunately, is not life and
there is so much more out there if
only one makes the effort to seize
it.
Luckily, the disease is not yet
terminal. Call it nihilism, call it apa-
thy, but no matter the terminology
one uses, this enfeebling of our gen-
erational sense of adventure is suck-
ing the life from us slowly. We're
becoming "a whole generation,"
as Camus described his post-WWII
contemporaries, "intoxicated by


nihilism and yet lost in loneliness,
with weapons in our hands and a
lump in our throats."
I see a gray future for us all if we
don't start seizing the day. We need
to recapture the sense of joie de
vivre and what-the-hell confidence
that has been lost somewhere along
the line. Go on a road trip. Chase a
dream. Most of all, find a passion
that burs and live for it. Remem-
ber, you only live once-and some
people not even that.
I guess the ideal that I feel de-
serves aspiration that can be best
summed up by referring again to
Thompson: "Walk tall, kick ass,
learn to speak Arabic, love music
and never forget that you come
from a long line of truth-seekers,
lovers and warriors." That's how
legends are made.

UF SOFTBALL

Gators' seventh-inning rally falls short in series finale


By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

The difference between a tough
loss and a series sweep: about 5
feet.
The UF softball team entered the
bottom of the seventh Sunday down
6-1 but pulled to within 2 with two
runners on. With two outs on the
board, freshman Michelle Moult-
rie's shot to right field fell just short
of the warning track and into Jazlyn
Lunceford's glove.
Alabama pitcher Kelsi Dunne
(13-1, 1.40 ERA), who threw 392
pitches over the weekend, held
the Gators to just 1 run going into
the bottom of the seventh. The top
of the order strung together a few
hits and walks to get on base, and
Francesca Enea's 3-run homer put
UF within striking distance. The
bottom of the order couldn't finish
the job, though, as catcher Kristina
Hilberth struck out and Moultrie's
flyout put an end to the comeback.
"I talked about that in the fourth
inning that we haven't been in this
position before, so let's find a way


to answer," UF coach Tim Wal-
ton said. "And we'll get a little bit
tougher from this, and obviously
we didn't win, but I thought we
showed some character."
Despite the loss in Game 3, the
No. 1 Gators (34-3, 13-1 Southeast-
ern Conference) won their weekend
series against the No. 4 Crimson
Tide (27-6, 7-4 SEC) with two mer-
cy-rule victories Saturday.
UF struggled on both sides of the
ball Sunday, committing two errors
and striking out 13 times against
Dunne.
"We did a great job in that last
inning, but when you go back and
look at the mistakes we made in the
game the No. 1 team can't make
those kinds of mistakes, so we've
got some work to do," Hilberth
said.
In addition to the mistakes they
made, the Gators also had to deal
with several questionable calls by
the umpires. During the seventh-
inning rally, third baseman Corrie
Brooks hit a ball that appeared to
have fallen just inside the line, but
it was called foul.

Offense blows past Alabama


By BOBBY CALLOVI
Alligator Writer
bcallovi@alligator.org

The Gators have a case of the hitting bug.
It started with a couple players early in
the season, but it spread to everybody on the
team this weekend.
UF's recent offensive explosion continued
Sunday in its 10-7 victory against Alabama,
completing the weekend-series sweep. The
Gators scored 30 runs on the weekend.
"When one guy is hitting good, we feed
off it," junior Clayton Pisani said. "It's defi-
nitely contagious."
Every starter had a hit in Sunday's win for
UF (18-8, 6-3 Southeastern Conference), and
six starters had two.
It wasn't just the hitting that led the Gators
to the sweep. The bullpen was called upon
again to stop the bleeding early.
Patrick Keating's start ended after he al-


lowed 5 runs in 3 1/3 innings, letting the
Crimson Tide keep pace with the 5 runs
scored by the Gators.
UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan turned the ball
over to Anthony DeSclafani (2-0, 3.80 ERA)
with the bases loaded and one out to pre-
vent Alabama from pulling
away.
DeSclafani responded
by striking out the first hit-
ter and got help on the last
out of the inning from Matt
den Dekker, who made a
sliding catch in center field
Keating to keep any more runs from
scoring.
DeSclafani was nearly perfect except in
the eighth when he gave up two solo hom-
ers allowing just one hit and the minimum
of 11 hitters over the previous 3 2/3 innings

WRs lack experience


* UF LOST ITS TOP 2 WIDE
RECEIVERS FROM LAST YEAR.

By MIKE McCALL
Alligator Staff Writer
mmccall@alligator org

After watching receivers Percy
Harvin and Louis Murphy work out
for NFL scouts at UF's Pro Day on
March 18, Urban Meyer came to an
unpleasant realization.
For the first time during his tenure
in Gainesville, the Gators were losing
their top two receivers.
"I'm wondering how we're go-
ing to get a first down next year after
watching that receiving workout,"
Meyer said.
With Harvin and Murphy headed
for the NFL, UF entered spring prac-
tice waiting for playmakers to emerge
and fill the void.
Senior David Nelson, who caught
crucial touchdowns in the Southeast-
ern Conference title game and BCS
Championship, will be charged with
leading the group, and he sees a lot of


potential in his under-the-radar unit.
"I expect this to be one of the
best receiving groups in the coun-
try because we're solid all the way
through," Nelson said. "No one really
expects a whole lot after losing Mur-
phy, (tight end Cornelius Ingram) and
Percy, but I think we're going to sur-
prise people."
Nelson, Deonte
Thompson and Riley
Cooper will be the
most experienced
Football wideouts returning,
but none of those
three tallied half as
many yards or catches as Murphy and
Harvin last season.
Tight end Aaron Hernandez,
UF's third-leading receiver in 2008,
will provide a steady presence in the
passing game, but someone will have
to take over the diverse role Harvin
played.
Last year, he was second on the
team in rushing (660 yards on 70 car-
ries) and receiving (644 yards on 40
catches), and he excelled on direct

UF mercy-rules 'Bama twice


SOFT, from page 13

A similar situation occurred in
the top of the fifth, when Brooks
seemingly turned an infield
grounder into a triple play, but
the ball was ruled foul well after
Brooks had made the throw to first
for the third out. The Tide went on
to score 3 runs in the inning.
"The officiating's not really
anything we can control," Hil-
berth said. "So we just had to work
through that adversity and try to
become a better team, whether it
goes your way or not."
Saturday was a completely dif-
ferent story for both teams.
Dunne, who had her way with
the UF lineup for most of Game 3,


gave up all 9 runs in UF's 9-1 vic-
tory in Game 1 in front of a record
crowd of 2,423.
UF outscored Alabama 19-2 on
Saturday, and five of the top six
hitters in the Gators' lineup added
to their home-run totals.
The Gators'
dominant perfor-
mances even sur-
Softbl prised Walton.
Softball "If you had
told me we were
going to run-rule
Alabama two games in a row, I
would've been like, 'Yeah, right.
There's no way. They're too good
of a team for that to happen,'" he
said. "You've got to give our kids
credit. I thought they came out
and executed."


Harvin's absence leaves hole in offense


RECEIVERS, from page 13

snaps and jet sweeps.
While incoming freshman Andre Debose has
been dubbed the next Harvin because he has a
similar skill set, it's unlikely Debose will be able
to fill his predecessor's shoes right away.
"You can't replace a player like Percy Harvin,"
Nelson said. "It'll take three or four of us to fill in
the production him and Murph had."
Debose, Thompson and running backs Jeff
Demps and Chris Rainey are all candidates to
pick up Harvin's rushing duties, but the lineup at
receiver is much less defined.
Nelson, Thompson and Justin Williams -who
played safety last season began spring practice
as the first teamers with Carl Moore subbing in.


But redshirt freshmen T.J. Lawrence, Omarius
Hines and Frankie Hammond are knocking on
the door for playing time, and Cooper (currently
with the baseball team) and Debose will join the
Gators in the summer, meaning the battle for
playing time will be wide open.
Wide receivers coach Billy Gonzales said he
will shuffle the lineups frequently to give each
player a chance to impress, and if there's one
thing he knows, it's that his players have a desire
to stand out.
"I stood in a group with them and said, 'If you
have achieved everything you wanted to here at
the University of Florida so far, raise your hand,'"
Gonzales said.
No hands hit the sky.
"I'm excited about the whole group," Gonza-
les said. "No one is proven right now."


Hot hitting makes up for lackluster starting pitching in weekend sweep

with four strikeouts.
"Once again we didn't get a great
start out of our starter in Patrick, but
our bullpen and DeSclafani did a heck
of a job for us and settled things down in
those middle innings," O'Sullivan said.
Getting a strong outing from a re-
liever was nothing new for the Gators,
as they needed Clint Franklin's (2-0, 2.45
ERA) four innings of shutout pitching to
keep the team in the game during UF's
11-4 win Friday. Starter Jeff Barfield al-
lowed Alabama to get a 4-run lead in
three innings.

"When one guy is hitting good,
we feed off it. It's definitely
contagious."
Clayton Pisani
UFjunior second baseman

Saturday starter Nick Maronde gave
up 7 runs over 4 2/3 innings before Alex
Panteliodis threw 3 1/3 innings and al-
lowed just 1 run to keep the game in the
Gators' reach.


They rebounded in dramatic fashion
to win 9-8 with a 7-run ninth inning.
Sunday's win was the only weekend
game the Gators did not need late rallies
to win.
UF crept back into the game Friday
before taking the lead with a 3-run sev-
enth and ran away with the game dur-
ing a 6-run eighth.
On Saturday, the Gators needed a big
ninth inning to overcome the 8-2 deficit
they faced.
UF jumped out in front in the first in-
ning Sunday on a 2-run homer by Avery
Barnes.
Although the Gators never trailed,
a 4-run fifth inning sparked by a 2-run
double from Pisani put the game out of
reach.
Hot bats and the dominance of the
bullpen led to UF's first sweep of Ala-
bama since 1994.
Some of those relievers could see
themselves getting an opportunity soon
because O'Sullivan said he was going to
look into a change in the starting rota-
tion.
"We'll sit down as a coaching staff
and try to figure out (if changes need to
be made)," O'Sullivan said.

Junior Fraser wins two national titles over weekend


* THE UF MEN TOOK FIFTH
PLACE AT THE NCAAs.

By MERCEDES MACHADO
Alligator Writer

Junior swimmer Shaune Fraser
ended the season strong.
After Fraser won individual na-
tional titles in the 200-yard freestyle
and the 200-yard butterfly, the UF
men's swimming and diving team
rallied behind him to secure a fifth-
place finish in the NCAA Champi-
onships over the weekend.
"I didn't do as well in the Olym-
pics," Fraser said. "So I wanted to
show everyone what I can do at
NCAAs."
And he did just that. Coach
Gregg Troy said Fraser's 200 fly was
one of the best he had witnessed.
Senior Bradley Ally was also
a standout during the three-day
competition, starting off with an ex-
ceptional swim on the first day to
win a national title in the 200-yard
individual medley.
Fraser also had a career-best time
in the 200 free Friday. The Gators
took 33 All-American awards in-
cluding honorable mentions.
No. 7 UF was in fourth place af-


ter Thursday, sixth after Friday and
managed to move up one spot on
Saturday.
The weekend marked the 10th
consecutive year that the men fin-
ished in the top 10.
"We did a fantastic job through-
out this whole week, with effort
from every single member of the
team." Troy said. "We broke a
bunch of school records, and every-
one garnered All-America status.
You couldn't ask for a better end to
the season."
The Gators were on fire at the
championships, breaking 10 UF
records. But even so, Fraser knows
he has greater potential. He said
winning two titles was a great ex-
perience but the opportunities are
endless.
"I can always improve after ev-
ery swim." Fraser said. "I am going
to look back at the video and cor-
rect my mistakes so I'm better next
time."
Other solid performances at the
meet included junior Clark Burckle
and Omar Pinzon in the 200 breast-
stroke and 200 back, respectively.
Burckle finished in eighth place,
breaking his own school record,
and Pinzon took third in his event,
breaking his career best.

UF MEN'S TRACK

Rain doesn't hold Gators back in Florida State Relays


By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

The rain and wind couldn't completely
stop UF this weekend in Tallahassee.
The UF track and field teams faced ad-
versity from the beginning of the three-
day Florida State Relays but managed to
finish the weekend well.
The bad weather curtailed Thursday's
events and prevented UF from compet-
ing on Friday afternoon. But the weather
held up Saturday, and UF took advantage
of the opportunity to have a full, uninter-
rupted day of competition.
The teams maintained their compo-
sure after the delays and cancellations and


gathered five first-place finishes and 16 to-
tal top-10 finishes on the final day.
Senior Kallinka Pitt took the first win
of the day for UF, claiming the 110-meter
hurdles title.
The other first-place finishers for UF
were sophomore Terrell Wilks in the
100-meter dash, the men's 4x400-meter
relay team, the women's 4x400 relay team
and freshman Keely Medeiros in the wom-
en's discus throw.
For Medeiros, her discus mark of 149
feet, 1 inch is a new personal record in the
event.
Her previous best was 138 feet, 1 inch,
which she set in the UCF Black and Gold
Challenge last weekend in Orlando.


Coach Mike Holloway was not overly
impressed with what he saw but under-
stands the weather was a big factor in
what the teams were able to do and the
events they were able to
compete in.
"We did a good job,
nothing spectacular by
any means, but we got
through it. We are an out-
door sport. It's just part
Holly of what we do," Hollo-
Holloway
way said. "I think it hurt,
but in the areas where we could get some
work done, we did."
The weather defeated UF in one area:
It prevented freshman Jeff Demps from


making his scheduled debut. Demps was
expected to compete as a member of the
4x100-meter relay team and possibly in the
100-meter dash.
The 4x100 relay was not run during the
three-day event, and according to Hol-
loway, Demps was just not ready for the
100-meter dash.
"He was entered, but we never really
planned for him to run," Holloway said.
"He's probably gonna open up later
in the season. He's just not ready for 100s
yet."
Instead, fans will have to wait until this
weekend's home meet, the Florida Relays,
to see Demps in action, if weather per-
mits.

UF TENNIS

No. 14 Gators women top Bulldogs in home match


By JOSEPH R. HOLZER
Alligator Writer

The No. 14 Gators women's ten-
nis team could open a kennel the
way it's been taming Bulldogs in
Southeastern Conference play.
UF (10-6, 4-2 SEC) bounced back
from its 4-3 loss to Mississippi on
Friday by dominating Mississippi
State 6-1 on Sunday at Linder Sta-
dium. The weekend came after a
much-needed 12-day rest.
"We looked very rusty, I thought,
particularly at (Court) 1 doubles at
Ole Miss," UF coach Roland Thorm-
qvist said. "We were certainly dis-


appointed leaving there because it
sets us back in the SEC rankings,
but I was proud to see how we re-
sponded the next day here, playing
at home."
The Gators won all three doubles
matches to take the doubles point.
Marrit Boonstra and Jo Mather
claimed their eighth consecutive win
as a tandem. Boonstra was previ-
ously paired with Megan Alexander
before Alexander went out for the
season with an undisclosed injury.
"In the beginning, it was kind of
getting used to each other, but right
now we feel really comfortable,"
Boonstra said.


"She moves like a cat.
That's a tremendous ad-
vantage."
Roland Thornqvist
UF women's tennis coach

Mather, who clinched the win
in singles against Radka Ferancova,
said she loves playing with the fifth-
ranked Boonstra, who is 15-0 in du-
al-match singles play.
"She's improved a lot confidence-
wise, certainly at a completely dif-
ferent level than before, and Mar-
rit's strength has always been she's


a very cerebral player," Thomqvist
said. "She puts the balls in spots that
are very uncomfortable for the op-
posing player."
The junior used this skill Sunday,
easily toppling Olesya Tsigvintseva
6-1, 6-0 on Court 1. She said she still
has room to improve, but agreed
with Thomqvist that her confidence
has definitely elevated her play.
"She moves like a cat. That's a
tremendous advantage," he said.
With Alexander out, Mather has
assumed the No. 3 position. She has
proven herself up to the challenge,
earning SEC Freshman of the Week
honors. She took winning the award


in stride.
"(Assistant coach) Dave (Balogh)
wanted my signature," she said.
"That was good enough for me."
MEN BEAT MISSISSIPPI STATE: Af-
ter dropping its first home dual
match on Friday against No. 2
Mississippi, the UF men's tennis
team traveled to Starkville, Miss.,
to crush Mississippi State 6-1.
Freshmen Joey Burkhardt and
Carlos Cueto turned in dominant
performances. Burkhardt downed
Antonio Lastre 6-1, 6-1. Cueto,
the No. 24-ranked singles player,
clinched the No. 7 Gators' victory by
beating Ryan Farlow 6-4, 6-1.


Lake Sumter snaps Santa Fe's 9-game winning streak


* MISTAKES COST THE SAINTS
CHANCES TO TAKE THE LEAD.

By JESSICA ETTER
Alligator Writer

With wind whipping and fans cheering,
Santa Fe College (19-15, 8-4 Mid-Florida
Conference) was unable to walk away with
a victory Saturday against Lake Sumter
Community College, falling to the Lakers
13-10.


SFC, which was on a nine-game winning
streak, now finds itself looking down the
path of a multiple-game losing streak. The
Saints lost the first game of the two-day se-
ries with the Lakers in Leesburg on Friday
8-0, snapping their winning streak.
"When you drop two games in a row af-
ter winning nine straight, of course it's very
frustrating," Saints coach Johnny Wiggs
said. "I thought we had the chance to take
the lead a couple of times, but we made too
many mistakes."


Mother Nature caused difficulty for both
SFC and LSCC on Saturday. While the ex-
act speed of the wind was unknown, every-
one took note of the importance it played
on both sides. Four home
Santa Fe runs were scored between
College the two teams.
SFC starting pitcher
Gary Merians gave up 6 runs in the second
inning. Merians would give up seven hits
and 7 runs during his 6 2/3 innings.
"Very rarely does a college pitcher re-


cover from a real big inning. Generally it
lingers and carries over into other innings,"
Wiggs said. "I give Gary a lot of credit for
keeping his head in the game."
SFC freshman Keon Broxton, who saw
his first at-bat during the eighth inning,
hit the Saints' second home run of the day.
Broxton's at-bat set up closer Andy Mee's
2-run homer that tied the game at 10.
After giving up 4 runs during his two
innings pitched, Mee took the loss for the
Saints.
