Dance event



raises more



than $400K


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

When Brooke Emory was
six years old, doctors found a
brain tumor on her optic nerve,
the cause behind her recurring
migraines. Rather than having
the tumor removed via sur-
gery, which would likely cause
blindness, she underwent 18
months of chemotherapy.
Five years later, she is can-
cer free.
Emory's was one of 24 sto-
ries shared this weekend by
children or their family mem-
bers at UF's 15th annual Dance
Marathon.
Dance Marathon raises
money for the Children's Mir-
acle Network, a nonprofit orga-
nization that funds medical ex-
penses and research at Shands
Children's Hospital at UF.


The event took place this
weekend in the O'Connell Cen-
ter, which was decorated with
signs and banners from the so-
rorities, fraternities and other
organizations that participated.
"It's physically and
emotionally draining."
Matt Michel
UF graduate student

Starting at 11:48 a.m. on Sat-
urday, about 600 dancers stood
for 26.2 hours, which was a
piece of cake for some veteran
dancers.
UF graduate student Matt
Michel, a sixth-year dancer,
said during his first Dance Mar-
athon, he stood for 32 hours.
"Thankfully it's been short-
ened to 26 hours," he said. "It's

In fact, Russell feels confident

Man's DNA leads to rape charge
A Gainesville man was charged Thurs-
day with the rape and murder of a Texas
woman after spending two years in a Florida
prison on an unrelated felony charge.
Officials took a DNA sample from pris-
oner Lucky Odom, 52, in 2007 and sent it to
a national DNA database, Gainesville Police
Department spokesman Keith Kameg said.
Odom's DNA was linked to that of the
sperm found on the body of Kathryn Mun-
roe, who was murdered in 1982, he said.


Munroe was about to enter her sopho-
more year as a medical student at Texas Col-
lege of Osteopathic Medicine when she was
raped and strangled on the playground of a
Fort Worth elementary school, an article in
the Fort Worth Star-Telegram stated.
While living in Gainesville, Odom was
arrested for stealing copper and selling it,
Kameg said. He was caught in 2006 by a
GPD detective and arrested on several felo-
ny charges, he said.

UF celebrates


Galileo's feats

By ALEX CHACHKEVITCH
Alligator Contributing Writer

Four hundred years since Galileo Galilei first gazed into
outer space, UF scientists are still searching the comers of
the universe through new technological developments.
About 115 people gathered to honor Galileo's discover-
ies and celebrate the International Year of Astronomy on
Friday night at the New Physics Building, hosted by UF's
Department of Astronomy and the Alachua County As-
tronomy Club.
Visitors could view a projection screen hanging near
the entrance showing the program "Around the World in
80 Telescopes." The show was a live, 24-hour broadcast of
the efforts of about 140 countries to bring attention to as-
tronomy and some of the most advanced observatories in
the world, said UF astronomy professor Vicki Sarajedini, a
coordinator of the event.
She said UF astronomy professor
Anthony Gonzalez broadcasted from
Gainesville on Saturday at 3 a.m. to
tout UF's recent development of the
CanariCam, an infrared camera meant
to capture images of very cold objects
in space. It was made for a recently
built observatory in the Canary Islands,
Sarajedini which UF helped fund.
UF contributed about five percent
of the project's cost, which totaled about $130 million, in
exchange for five percent of the available observation time,
according to the observatory's Web site at gtcdigital.net.
To kick off the night, UF astronomy professors Eliza-
beth Lada and Rafael Guzman showcased photographs of
Galileo's equipment and the extent of today's space explo-
ration. Lada spoke on Galileo's life, discoveries and what
scientists expect he saw during his first glance into space.
She said the most important lesson to take from his
life's work is the practice of questioning everything.
"For today's science, especially astronomy, it's really
only the beginning," she said, "so don't be afraid to make
leaps of judgment."
Guzman addressed the abilities of today's telescopes
and future advances.
"Unfortunately, we can't travel further than our solar
system because we don't have the right equipment yet,"
he said.
But scientists can at least see those billions of galaxies in
the distance, which are clustered together in patterns that
resemble a human body's sensory cell pathways, he said.
But even with scientific advancements, mapping out
the universe with only the light of the stars as a guide can
be inaccurate.
"There might be more than what we see," Guzman
said.


Exibit allows for blind art experience


* ABOUT 60 PEOPLE ATTENDED THE 3-D EXHIBIT.

By EMILY FUGGETTA
Alligator Writer
efuggetta@a ligator org

Most museums warn patrons to keep their hands off the
art, but at Saturday's MindSight exhibit, people were en-
couraged to do the opposite.
Tour guides led about 60 blindfolded people through
a room of three-dimensional pieces, ranging from smooth
wooden sculptures to paintings embellished with beads and
nails. The exhibit, organized by the Harn Museum and the
Gator Lions Club, featured the work of 10 Gainesville art-
ists.
There was a dual purpose, according to Gator Lions Club
member Shelly Flanagin: to create an artistic experience that


didn't require sight and to help sighted people understand
what art is for people who can't see.
Five visually impaired people attended the show, Flanag-
in said.
Each tour guide led guests around the room by elbow, al-
lowing the guests to run their hands over ceramic opossums
and ocean scenes made of sand and glass. Participants were
encouraged to guess what they were feeling.
Local "A lot of people are really good with eyes,
News noses, mouths," she said. "A lot of (the pieces)
are trickier, though. They require more imag-
ining."
Vinnie Squitiro, a science and management graduate stu-
dent, said that touching the art before viewing it allowed
him to better understand it.
"Now that I see everything after having the blindfold
on," he said, "it's strange to see how different it looks based
on what I was expecting."

Local woman details struggles, poverty with poetry


By JACQUELYNE SMITH
Alligator Writer


Scrawled on a ripped piece of
paper on Marcee Lee Winthrop's
refrigerator are the words, "When I
want to cry, I will laugh instead."
The phrase is Winthrop's mantra,
and the same sense of determina-
tion resonates in her poetry, which
she hopes will be her lifeline out of
poverty.
She started writing poetry as part
of a New Year's resolution to live
up to her potential and improve her
life. When her husband left in early
March, Winthrop and her 13-year-
old daughter Tammy were left on
their own.
Winthrop, 54, had all of her teeth
at 13, but she now only has three
visible front teeth a physical char-
acteristic that she said keeps her un-
employed, along with her lack of job
experience. Medical care, doctors'
visits and dental work are luxuries
she can't afford, she said.
"I try to make a joke of it, but it
hurts inside," she said. "I used to
smile all the time... that seems so far
away."
Timid because of her appearance,
Winthrop puts aside her insecurities
to take the stage at venues such as
UF's Orange & Brew during open
mic poetry nights. She hopes that
her poetry will help people under-
stand the hardships of poverty and
take action against it.


Winthrop, who lives in a mobile
home on Southwest Archer Road
about 10 minutes outside of Gaines-
ville's city limits, said she and her
daughter attend poetry readings
around Gainesville, often traveling
for more than an hour on two buses.
Winthrop said she plans to share
her poetry as long as she has money
for bus fares or rides from friends.
She will read her work at the Civic
Media Center's Weekly Poetry Jam
Thursday night.
"When you're in need, you
start thinking boldly."
Marcee Lee Winthrop
Poet

"When you're in need, you start
thinking boldly," she said.
The first poem she wrote, called
"I am a Face of Poverty in America,"
addresses her anger with the U.S.
government, which she said treats
her as an "expendable soul" because
of her poverty.
Winthrop said her experiences
seeking government assistance have
been frustrating, especially due to
her lack of transportation. A lot of
poor people feel like cattle wander-
ing from building to building, ref-
erenced as a number instead of a
name, she said.
Her poems address the hardships
and the sense of shame that often ac-

carefully because of her fragile re-
maining teeth. When she walks 10
blocks home from the grocery store,
the plastic bags dig into her hands,
making them numb.
Winthrop said she hopes to pub-
lish books of her poetry. She has the
titles already picked out, and she
wants the first to be "Poverty Revo-
lution Part 1: Skimming the Sur-
face," she said with a grin.
So far, she's written 10 poems
with commentary of each poem's
inspiration, she said.
Winthrop does most of her writ-
ing in coffee shops, such as Bamie's
Coffee & Tea Co., while Tammy sits
with her and draws, often cartoons.
Home-schooled since first grade,
Tammy travels everywhere with her
mom.
"I cheer her on as much as I can,"
Tammy said. "I think daughters
should cheer their moms on. They
need support, too."
Family, friends and neighbors
support Winthrop's ambitions.
Edwin Luciano, who has known
Winthrop since she moved into the
neighborhood a few years ago, said
he admires Winthrop.
"She's stepping out and doing
something special," he said. "It just
goes into people's hearts and makes
a difference."

Every hour dancers performed a five-minute line dance
to a medley composed of 'NSync, Lady Gaga and Def Lep-
pard.
Michel, who came to the event with a sprained ankle,
said although someone stepped on his foot while learning
the line dance, he had come prepared with ice and a soft-
boot cast.
UF sophomore Jessica Stark said she found it physically
exhausting to be standing for so long, but took strength
from the cause.
"My favorite part about (Dance Marathon) is hearing the
miracle children's stories and what they've been through,"
Stark said. "When I'm dancing, it helps me keep going."
While dancers stood around, they played games,
watched performances and spent time with Albert and
Alberta. Once the Apocalypse Dance Troupe had finished
their performance, they challenged members of the morale
team, Dance Marathon staff who are in charge of keeping
dancers motivated, to a dance off.
Later in the night, dancers celebrated the event's 15th
occurrence by signing a banner, decorating party hats and
singing "Happy Birthday." UF quarterback Tim Tebow also
stopped by the birthday celebration to give some words of
encouragement to the dancers.
"It's something amazing that you're doing here for all
these kids," he said.
Dancers finally took a load off at 2 p.m. on Sunday, sit-
ting themselves on the dance floor during the closing cer-
emonies, where Dance Marathon staffers announced that
$413,562.34 was raised this year.

Dancers at the 15th annual Dance Marathon at UF for the Children's Miracle Network spell out the initials of the orga-

Russell also plans to focus on the college
student vote, she said.
After her father was diagnosed with Par-

marijuana could help treat his symptoms, she


said.
But when she spoke to state legislators
about the possibility of legalization, they told
her it would be at least seven to eight years.
"I decided to do the ballot initiative because
I can't wait that long," she said.
The campaign also wants to raise between
$5 million and $10 million to pay for political


advertising if the initiative reaches the ballot.

True Americans

Media must pay homage

to shooting victims
Friday's tragic shooting in Binghamton, N.Y., serves as
yet another reminder to Americans across the country
of the fragility of life.
In the wake of last week's events, media outlets continue
to raise questions about the shooter speculating about his
mindset to go through with such a sinister act. Rather, what
should be talked about are the countless victims and the
heartwarming stories about them that make the massacre at
the American Civic Association even more devastating.
The 13 individuals who lost their lives on Friday hailed
from eight different countries a diverse group of people
ranging from Pakistanis to Brazilians.
Take Dolores Yigal for instance, who attended English
classes at the immigrant community center with hopes of
mastering the language and furthering herself as a person.
Another victim, Hong Xiu Mao, known by friends as "Amy,"
immigrated from China with hopes of becoming a United
States citizen and achieving the American dream. Layla
Khalil overcame three different car bombings in her home-
land of Iraq before coming to America while in her 50s in an
effort to start her life anew.
Lest we forget to make mention of the heroic efforts made
by Shirley DeLucia, who had the wherewithal to play dead
after being shot to make a phone call to inform authorities of
the situation.
As details surrounding the lives of the 13 victims continue
to come to light, the anecdotes and stories shared by loved
ones will serve as a reminder of the ambition and optimism
cut short by the selfish actions of one deeply troubled man.


Killer Apps


Beyond inventing a beer
that helps people lose
weight, is there really
any way to strike it rich dur-
ing America's current run of
economic downturn?
For Ethan Nicholas, devel-
oping a shoot-em-up video
game for the iPhone was just
the ticket.
Down on his luck and
drowning in a sea of medical
bills, Nicholas drew inspira-
tion from one success story
in which one man netted
$250,000 seemingly overnight
thanks to his iPhone app.
Even though Nicholas was
well-versed in the geek-speak
of programming, he needed
to learn Objective C, an en-
tirely new language, in order
to properly code his creation.
What resulted was iShoot -
a game not exactly brimming
with the bells and whistles of
a Google offering, but good
enough for Nicholas to take
home $800,000 in a mere five


months.
Prospects for iPhone app
development have caught the
attention of Stanford Univer-
sity leading to the creation
of an undergraduate course
strictly designed to help stu-
dents create the latest flavor
of the month for purchase at
the Apple App Store.
The Editorial Board can't
help but be intrigued by the
possibilities offered by creat-
ing games and programs for
the iPhone.
With a completely over-
hauled version of the iPhone
set to launch later this year,
we can only imagine dollar
signs popping up in the eyes
of developers everywhere.
If one down-on-his-luck-
programmer can get rich
quick off a poor man's Duke
Nukem, who says a group of
mildly intelligent journalists
can't put together the latest
killer app by the end of Sum-
mer A?

Opinions


ALLIGATOR
www.alligator.org/opinions


Column

New GOP channels its inner Populist


The Populists are ruining everything.
You know the type: wanna-be hippie, Whole
Foods environmentalist, own at least one Che
Guevara T-shirt (and skinny leg jeans), grew up in a rea-
sonably nice but modest home. Angry.
They are mostly of the donkey mold, and when they
take to the streets with their Greenpeace T-shirts, they
head right for the large corporate buildings and yell with
such venomous rage at the institutions that now hold
our financial system horrifically suspended in midair.
Despite our revolutionary past, our British friends
are the experts at protesting the power the masters of
the universe hold. As world leaders all exchanged high-
fives and toothy grins in Buckingham Palace last Thurs-
day at the start of the G-20 summit, renegade anarchists
stormed the Royal Bank of Scotland in the London finan-
cial district. The London protesters weren't of a populist
zeal, but a revolutionary one. Forget British Prime Min-
ister Gordon Brown's suggestion at the G-20 summit of
restructuring the global financial marketplace, the revo-
lutionaries wanted to burn the whole system down.
For a while, it wasn't just the far-left fringe of the
more liberal political parties in the world who were
sounding the clarion yell of populist outrage. It was the
stalwart Republicans in this country, who didn't take to
the streets in army fatigues or hand-me-down Patagonia
rags, but took to the airwaves instead, in business suits
and leftover wardrobe off the set of "The Sopranos."
The Republicans, traditionally a party of men and
women whose idea of a good protest is boycotting a Ro-
tary Club president nomination, suddenly found their
inner populist when President Barack Obama came out
with his budget. CNBC commentators went ballistic,


decrying the president's plan to
raise taxes back to the rates un-
der President Bill Clinton. Bill
O'Reilly, who fancies himself
the last bastion of truth, couldn't
wipe the arrogant grin off his
Matthew Christ face every time the stock market
letters@alligator.org worsened. Glenn Beck, who final-
ly figured out that CNN doesn't
stand for Conservative Nutty
News, finally made the switch to FOX News and called
the president a socialist, later apologizing and saying he
got it all wrong the president isn't a socialist, he's a
fascist. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the punchline
to a joke that's taken eight years to tell. An unquestion-
ing right-wing social group, that pledges allegiance to
one leader and demands the same from everyone else
and goes as far as labeling you an unpatriotic treasonous
heretic if you disagree with its ideas and policies, is the
very definition of fascism.
There's nothing wrong with partisanship or party
loyalty. There really isn't much wrong with painting
your political opposition unpatriotic and calling upon
your television viewers to rise up against "them" and
"take back your country" as Glenn Beck has called for.
Actions like those only make politicians like Obama all
the more savory.
It's just a pity, though, that the Republicans in Wash-
ington and on television have only now summoned the
courage to question their president.
They came to the party eight years too late.
Matthew Christ is a political science freshman. His col-
umn appears on Mondays.

Letters to the Editor
ISIS scheduling errors are unacceptable
I received an e-mail Thursday afternoon
from Dr. Creed Greer, assistant program di-
rector of the University Writing Program, in-
forming me that due to a "scheduling error,"
the Writing for Pre-Law section I registered for
nearly a week and a half ago was closed and
would not be held in the fall.
This is overwhelmingly frustrating as this
"scheduling error" has thrown a wrench into
my and many others' plans.
Dr. Greer may think an e-mail and a sug-
gestion of other sections to take is enough, but
it is not. Someone's incompetence in schedul-
ing sections for the fall is leaving a handful
of pre-law students high and dry two weeks
into registration, left with only a sub-par selec-
tion of composition courses. If I were trying to


graduate in December, I would be livid.

Answer lies in merging, not eliminating
Do you know someone who has or had
Parkinson's disease, cerebral palsy, ALS, au-
tism, Alzheimer's disease, a stroke, a traumat-
ic brain injury, a hearing impairment, cochlear
implant, a cleft lip and/or palate, dyslexia,
stuttering, or head and neck cancer?
Imagine what would happen if they needed
treatment from a speech-language pathologist
or an audiologist but were unable to find one.
Such a scenario is possible under the current
CLAS budget proposal that is in the provost's


and president's hands. This proposal contains
two potential outcomes for the Department of
Communication Sciences and Disorders.
The first proposal is a merger with the
Communicative Disorders department in the
College of Public Health and Health Profes-
sions, which our Student Body fully supports.
The second proposal is the complete elimina-
tion of our CSD department. We cannot fore-
see a future where research on and services to
these populations cannot be provided.
Eliminating our program should never
have been proposed, as the justification for its
closure was not based on its weakness it is
a highly nationally ranked program. Our pro-
gram will likely go from excellent to premiere
with this merger. There is simply no alterna-
tive.


MONDAY, APRIL 6, 2009 U ALLIGATOR, 7


Merging the two departments makes sense
and will help to advance research and clinical
work within our field at UF. By merging these
programs, UF will maintain our high quality
of research and will strive for economic effi-
ciency in the spirit of the upper administra-
tion's edict.
As demand for jobs within our field grows,
UF must continue to provide our nation with
high quality speech-language pathologists
and audiologists. Through our passion for our
field to move our department forward, we
will continue to do whatever we can to let the
university know that we won't tolerate elimi-
nation.

UF GYMNASTICS

Gators on way to NCAA Championships

By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

In a troupe consisting of Bruins, Pio-
neers, Gophers, Cyclones and Hawkeyes,
the Gators emerged victorious from the
menagerie.
The No. 6 UF gymnastics team won
the North Central Regional against No. 7
UCLA, Denver, Minnesota, Iowa State and
Iowa with a score of 196.775, netting its
fifth consecutive NCAA regional title.
Beyond morale, the win propelled the
Gators to the NCAA Championships in
Lincoln, Neb., which begin April 16.
Opening the meet on floor exercise -
a first for the team in competitive meets
this season the Gators posted a 49.075.
A fall on Courtney Gladys' last tumbling
pass hurt the team, as did a couple of short
landings by Melanie Sinclair that resulted
in an uncharacteristic 9.6.
"We like the fact they didn't carry it
over into the rest of the meet," UF coach
Rhonda Faehn said.
Senior Corey Hartung made her last
regional appearance count, scoring a 9.925
on her floor routine, which tied her with
Denver's Jessica Lopez for the regional
floor title. It marked Hartung's second re-
gional floor title, the other coming in her
freshman year.
"We're more appreciative and more
honored to be doing this well, considering
(we have only eight of 12 gymnasts com-
peting)," Hartung said.
From floor, the team moved to vault,
where consistency was key. The Gators
didn't count anything less than a 9.8 to-
ward their 49.225 score. Gladys and Sin-
clair rebounded from floor, notching scores
of 9.85 and 9.875, respectively. Capturing
her second 9.9 in as many events, Maranda Harrison Diamond/Alligator Staff
Smith led the team on vault. UF senior gymnast Corey Hartung waves to the crowd after an exhibition performance

No. 1 softball team, fans have lots to smile about


T he most impressive team on campus
plays in a stadium that has no park-
ing lot.
Frustrations with traveling to Katie Seas-
hole Pressly Stadium can be forgiven (signs
point fans to the Center for the Performing
Arts parking lot, a 5-10 minute walk down
Hull Road for a 1,200-seat stadium), but the
team inside is well worth the trouble.
The No. 1 UF softball team improved
to 39-3 after dispatching Mississippi State
3-0 in 91 minutes on Sunday to complete its
weekend sweep.
This comes on the heels of a 70-win sea-
son the most in NCAA history last
year that culminated in the team's first-ever
trip to the Women's College World Series.


It was simply the
next logical step for
a program that is
seeing astronomical
growth in only its
13th season.
Phil Kegler Up-and-com-
Phil on the Hill ing coach Tim
pkegler@alligator.org Walton landed in
Gainesville prior
to the 2006 season.
That year, he led UF to an NCAA Regionals
appearance. Then he led the Gators to their
first-ever NCAA Super Regionals berth in
2007. The team's 2008 success has been well
documented.
Now, a national title isn't just a goal. It's


an expectation.
It would be easy to point to the team's
outrageous talent, helped by a national re-
cruiting approach (only nine of 20 players
on the roster hail from Florida). Apparently
the secret is taught in youth sports pro-
grams across America:
Have fun.
"Our secret is just to keep smiling and
staying goofy," said senior Stacey Nelson,
the team's electric spark and All-America
pitcher. "As long as we're dancing in the
dugout and laughing, things normally go
well."
And the fun starts early. There is no
mistaking the team for tense at any point

UF victory


* HER GRAND SLAM WON
GAME 2 ON SATURDAY.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

It was the kind of situation
clutch players dream about: tie
game, two outs, bases loaded, bot-
tom of the final inning.
With Game 2 of Saturday's
doubleheader against Mississip-
pi State tied at 2, Kelsey Bruder
took a full-count pitch over the
right-field fence for her first career
grand slam, a walk-off bomb that
capped off UF's seventh-inning
comeback.
"Coach always says you don't
need a home run, you don't need
to be the hero," Bruder said. "So I
thought, 'I hope he'll be OK with
this.'"
UF coach Tim Walton was in-
deed happy with Bruder's at-bat,
and the rest of the Gators showed
their appreciation by dogpiling
the sophomore right fielder after
she crossed home plate.
"Unbelievable. At second base,
I was telling her that I'd never
been I don't want to say ner-
vous but my adrenaline has
never rushed that much. Ever,"
first baseman Ali Gardiner said.
"I knew she was going to get it
done."
With that victory secured, the
No. 1 Gators (39-3, 17-1 Southeast-
ern Conference) cruised to a series
sweep against the Bulldogs (17-20,
2-13 SEC) this weekend at Katie
Seashole Pressly Stadium.
On March 28, UF lost its third
game of the season to Alabama
despite a last-inning rally. The
Gators showed what they learned
from that experience Saturday.

UF BASEBALL

Commodores score 14 unanswered to stun Gators


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

A 14-0 run usually occurs on the
basketball court, not the baseball
field.
UF (19-11, 7-5 Southeastern Con-
ference), however, managed to turn
a 9-2 lead into a 16-9 loss on Sunday
in its weekend finale with Vander-
bilt (19-12, 5-7 SEC) in Nashville,
Tenn.
Gators starter Stephen Locke
came out of the game with a 7-run
lead after allowing 2 runs and five
hits in five innings of work. Fresh-
man Preston Tucker had just hit his


second home run of the game, this
one a 3-run job that capped a 4-run
sixth inning, and the Gators looked
like they were well on their way to
winning their first road series.
Instead, the Commodores scored
14 runs in their last three innings, in-
cluding a 7-run eighth, completing a
wild comeback and earning the se-
ries win after the teams split the first
two games.
The biggest contributing factor
to UF's collapse was poor infield
defense, with shortstop Josh Adams
committing two errors and Tucker
adding another at first base.
Of the 16 runs the Gators allowed
on Sunday, only 6 were earned, and


all 7 runs scored by Vanderbilt in the
eighth inning were unearned.
The Gators have made fewer
errors than their opponents eight
times this season
and hold a per-
fect 8-0 record in
those games.
UF coach Kev-
in O'Sullivan has
said many times
that pitching and
O'Sullivan defense will keep
the Gators in
games. His team showed what can
happen when those areas go unac-


counted for.
In recent weeks,


UF's starters


have failed to go deep into games,
putting pressure on the bullpen.
Sunday, Locke turned the ball
over to the relievers only to see a
huge lead evaporate. O'Sullivan
needed six different pitchers to get
through the final three innings.
Senior Patrick Keating, who
came into the season as the Gators'
Friday-night starter, continued to
struggle in relief of Locke. Keating
lasted only one inning after allowing
3 earned runs.
Junior Tony Davis (3-0,2.03 ERA)
and freshman Anthony DeSclafani
(2-1, 3.81 ERA) gave up a combined
4 runs in two-thirds of an inning,
with Vanderbilt tying the game on a


2-run single.
Billy Bullock (0-2,1.93 ERA), Greg
Larson and Alex Panteliodis were all
used in the eighth, and Vanderbilt
junior shortstop Brian Harris punc-
tuated the comeback with a two-out,
3-run homer off Panteliodis.
On a positive note for UF, the top
of the lineup was productive in Sun-
day's loss. The No. 1 through No. 5
hitters combined to go 10 for 23 with
8 runs and seven RBIs.
The Gators won Friday's series
opener 8-4 behind a two-RBI double
from Tucker. UF lost Saturday 4-3
as Vanderbilt scored the game-win-
ning run on a fielder's choice in the
seventh inning.


Hartung ties career best on beam


GYM, from page 14


Smith, Hartung and Sinclair all posted the
highest scores for the Gators on uneven bars.
Their 9.85s placed them in a five-way tie for
second in the event overall.
Alicia Goodwin, making her first appear-
ance in a regional competition, and team-
mate Elizabeth Mahlich trailed just behind
with 9.8s.
Goodwin sprained her knee in practice on
March 18, three days before the start of the
Southeastern Conference Championships,
and was pulled from that meet. She was
healthy enough to participate in the regional
competition on bars and balance beam, the
team's closing event.
Heading into beam, UF needed a 49.2 to
defeat UCLA. UF also felt Iowa State breath-
ing down its neck, as the Cyclones trailed by
a marginal 0.8 points.
"We just knew that we had to go out there
and hit our routines," Faehn said, though she
admitted she didn't know the score her team


needed.
"If I were to know that exactly, it would
be a little bit nerve-wracking," Faehn said.
Whether or not the gymnasts knew, it
didn't stop the team from going above and
beyond the necessary 49.2. UF put on its
best beam rotation of the
season with a meet-high
beam total of 49.325.
Hartung again made
Gymnastics the best of her appear-
ance, putting up a 9.95
tying her career best
and winning the regional beam title nearly
a whole tenth ahead of Goodwin's second-
place score.
After falls in the event early in the season,
Goodwin's sprained knee seemed to be noth-
ing more than a memory as she notched a
9.875 in her third consecutive beam perfor-
mance.
"Everyone that's out there on the compe-
tition floor is giving 150 percent into it, and
that's what's making the difference," Faehn
said.


PHIL, from page 14


om beginning to end. Players are
smiling, joking and dancing during
player introductions, and they seem
to appreciate some of the crazy mid-
inning festivities for fans, including a
dance-off.
But it isn't always easy, even if
winning breeds happiness. The 20
student-athletes often play five games
in a week, and recent successes have
brought a bull's-eye that isn't foreign
to most UF teams. But these girls can
still struggle to always find the joy.
"I think the winning ways are
almost becoming expectations and
becoming part of a businesslike men-
tality," Walton said a few weeks ago.
"You can't argue with the success
that they've had. I just want them to
play with a little more enthusiasm


and play with a little more excite-
ment."
The Gators had plenty of excite-
ment Saturday when Kelsey Bruder
hit her first career grand slam with
two outs in the bottom of the seventh
inning and the score tied. Sunday
was back to the ordinary for UF, with
Nelson striking out seven in a three-
hit shutout.
Don't wait to jump on this band-
wagon until you're watching the
Women's College World Series on
ESPN in May. For more persuasion,
consider the 10 different giveaways
- ranging from a T-shirt for every
strikeout to a gift certificate to upscale
Harry's Seafood, Bar, and Grill for a
triple play that could be yours.
Come for the fun and stay for the
winning.
The team wouldn't want it any
different.


Nelson earns all three wins in weekend sweep against Mississippi State


SOFT, from page 14


UF entered the final frame down
2-1, but clutch hits from Gardiner
and Kristina Hilberth as well
as a slide by Aja Paculba that pre-
vented the Bulldogs from turning a
double play and prematurely end-
ing UF's comeback kept them in
the game.
"I like low key. Low key's
nice. We won 3-0 with
hardly any threats."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

"Alabama showed us a lot about
ourselves. We can learn a lot from a
loss," Bruder said. "We know that
we have that drive and that fight at
the very end. All the way through,
our dugout just stayed in tune. Ev-
erything just came together."
Senior ace Stacey Nelson won all
three games for UF over the week-
end, allowing just eight hits in her
14 innings of work.
Sophomore pitcher Stephanie
Brombacher, who has been sick
with flu-like symptoms since Tues-


day, was only able to pitch five in-
nings in Game 2.
Nelson (23-3, 0.48 ERA) pitched
all five innings of UF's 11-2 mercy-
rule victory in Game 1 and came in
to relieve Brombacher in the sixth
during Game 2, closing the game
by giving up no hits and no walks
while striking out four batters.
After Saturday's dramatic fin-
ish, Sunday's series finale was far
less contested. The Gators scored 3
runs in the second inning, and the
teams traded zeros for the rest of
the game.
"I like low key. Low key's nice,"
UF coach Tim Walton said.
"We won 3-0 with hardly any
threats. I thought everybody did
their job. Obviously we didn't re-
ally swing the bat as well as every-
body's used to, but give (Missis-
sippi State pitcher Lindsey Dunlap)
credit."
UF third baseman Corrie Brooks
put the first run on the board Sun-
day with a solo home run to left
field in the second inning.
After starting the series 0 for 6
at the plate, center fielder Michelle
Moultrie drove in the Gators' final
2 runs with a triple down the right-
field line.

UF SPORTS ROUNDUP


Demps anchors Gators' winning 4x100-meter relay


By TONI-ANN MILLER
Alligator Writer

Jeff Demps got the baton to start
the anchor leg of the 4x100-meter re-
lay with UF already in the lead -
and the race was over.
As he ran the final 100 meters, the
crowd roared until he had crossed
the finish line, giving UF a win in
an NCAA regional-qualifying 39.22
seconds on the final day of the Flor-
ida Relays held in James G. Pressly
Stadium.
After a weather-hampered meet
in Tallahassee, the home meet
proved to be just what UF needed.
The Gators dominated the two-
day event and had athletes earn
new personal bests, 39 NCAA re-
gional-qualifying marks and school
records.
UF's most dazzling performance
came in the men's 4x400 relay, which
is traditionally the last event run and
UF's most successful event.
In the fastest heat, UF was chal-
lenged by a team of professionals,
but freshman Christian Taylor held

ajOW PUB Sam!q


off the 2008 Olympic 400-meter hur-
dles and 4x400 relay champion An-
gelo Taylor on the final leg, which
threw the crowd into a frenzy.
"It's not like anybody didn't ex-
pect us to do that," coach Mike Hol-
loway said. "When you look at the
talent pool we have on this team,
we're supposed to run fast. I think
the guys, they're confident, they be-
lieve in each other, and that's a re-
sult of what you saw tonight."
The 4x400 team was composed
of senior R.J. Anderson, junior Cal-
vin Smith, senior Carlos Phillips and
Taylor.
In the 400-meter dash, Smith and
Taylor battled each other for second
and third. Both finished with region-
al-qualifying times, but Smith edged
Taylor for second place by two hun-
dredths of a second.
Smith added to his outstanding
performance with another close fin-
ish in the 200-meter dash. He took
first in 20.68 seconds, a new person-
al-best time, while sophomore team-
mate Terrell Wilks took second in
20.70 seconds.


The close fin-
ish and compe-
tition between
the two has been
brewing since
practice.
"I didn't want
my teammate to
Demps beat me," Smith
said. "We prac-
tice every day, and we talk a bunch
of stuff, so we just have to show up
at the meet."
On the women's side, Genevieve
LaCaze ran a regional-qualifying
4:22.18 to take third in the 1,500-me-
ter run and broke the UF freshman
record with a win in 10:30.79 in the
3,000-meter steeplechase.
"Doing the steeple for the first
time, I didn't know what to expect,
but Julie (Northrup, who placed sec-
ond) and I had a great time," LaCaze
said.
UF MEN'S GOLF FINISHES FIRST
ROUND IN 11TH: This isn't exactly
what the Gators envisioned when
they took the course in Atlanta on
Sunday to play in their last touma-


ment before the postseason.
Before the U.S. Collegiate Cham-
pionship, coach Buddy Alexander
said the tournament would help set
the stage for the Southeastern Con-
ference Championships.
If that's the case, UF's perfor-
mance this weekend doesn't bode
well for its chances this postseason.
The Gators finished the first
round of the tournament tied for
11th place out of 15 with a team
score of 8 over par.
"It's disappointing because I
felt like we were going to get off to
a fast start," senior Billy Horschel
said. "We aren't out of it yet, but we
put ourselves in a little bit of a pre-
dicament by not playing too good
today."
The Gators are 13 strokes back
of first-place Clemson. Going into
the event, the team was looking for
a golfer to take charge and claim the
fifth spot of its lineup, but after Sun-
day's performance, it looks like UF
has other things to worry about.
Only one golfer on the team shot
under par.


Horschel shot 2 under par due to
his success on the par-five holes. He
shot three birdies on the day, all of
them coming on par-fives.
"The par-five holes out here are
the ones you've got to take advan-
tage of," he said. "They aren't too
long, so you can reach them in two
shots."
Horschel was the lone golfer to
have a solid round.
The other four golfers shot a com-
bined score of 16 over par.
Usually reliable junior Tim McK-
enney shot 4 over par. Although he
shot the same number of birdies as
Horschel, McKenney struggled with
seven bogeys on Sunday.
The Gators will see many of the
teams from this tournament in the
postseason. Nine of the top 10 teams
in the nation are playing in Atlanta
this week.
"We are just as good as those
teams, and it's just a matter of time
until we realize it or something clicks
with the whole team," Horschel
said.
