Hundreds rally



to protest cuts


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Equipped with a micro-
phone, Deeb Kitchen grabbed
a cell phone to call state Sen.
Steve Oelrich before leaving the
makeshift stage in the middle
of the Plaza of the Americas on
Tuesday.
He held out the phone so
Oelrich, R-Cross Creek, could
hear about 500 audience mem-
bers chant, "No more cuts."
Kitchen, co-president of the
UF Graduate Assistants United,
was joined by UF faculty, stu-
dents and Gainesville residents
in an effort to end cuts to higher
education.
The midday rally, which
lasted about an hour, offered


opportunities to proactively
oppose UF cuts and layoffs by
signing petitions to be sent to
state legislators and UF admin-
istrators.
Some students even toted
banners with the phone num-
bers of university and state
leaders, such as UF President
Bernie Machen and House
Speaker Larry Cretul, R-Ocala,
encouraging crowd members to
call and communicate.
The event, which kicked
off with music from the local
band Raarfaction, brought out
15 speakers, including Student
Body President-elect Jordan
Johnson and John Biro, presi-
dent of the UF chapter of the
United Faculty of Florida.

A student adds her name to the hundreds of signatures against university budget cuts that were gathered

Interfaith Forum held to discuss impact of religion


By HUNTER SIZEMORE
Alligator Writer

"How does your belief system
or lack thereof affect your life?"
This was one question posed
to five panelists, each represent-
ing a major religious outlook,
during UF's first Interfaith Fo-


rum on Tuesday evening in front
of about 250 people. Islam, Chris-
tianity, Hinduism, Judaism and
Non-theism were represented.
"Our goal was to spark reli-
gious dialogue, and I think we
accomplished that," said David
Yakobovitch, who was credited
with initiating the forum's cre-
ation.

for the Hindu Student Council,

In the four stages
of life as a Hindu,
Kota is in the first, or student,

Allen Williams, a UF graduate


who works with Campus Cru-
sade for Christ at UF, lives every
aspect of his life for his faith, he
said.
"I feel like this isn't about my

said.
Chris Mueller, president of
the largely non-theist UF group
Gator Freethought, believes athe-

Anti-abortion group creates mock cemetery on campus


By GUYANA HAND
Alligator Contributing Writer

When 14-year-old Patricia Aguerrevere
felt her brother kicking inside her mother's
belly, she knew she was feeling life. Now,
as a second-year art history major, she is a
member of the Pro-Life Alliance.
Members of the anti-abortion campus
organization spent five hours planting
2,000 American flags in the grass on the


Reitz Union North Lawn Tuesday.
The event, "Cemetery of the Innocents,"
was held to demonstrate the number of
abortions that occur in the United States.
A blue tarp sign indicated that each flag
signified two of the 4,000 abortions that
occur each day in the United States.
"Our main focus today is to just raise
awareness about how much abortion hap-
pens," said Katie Cardinale, a UF philoso-
phy sophomore.

UF philosophy sophomore

In 2005, 1.21 million abortions were
performed in the United States, according
to the Guttmacher Institute, a sexual and
reproductive health research organization.


According to the findings, an average of
3,315 abortions were performed daily.
"As I planted each flag in the ground,
I thought, 'There's a beating heart this
morning that's not going to be alive by to-
night,'" Cardinale said. "It's just so sad to
think about."
National anti-abortion organiza-
tions such as the Pro-Life Alliance have

St. Pete police chief expresses outrage
after 8-year-old shot to death on Sunday
ST. PETERSBURG, (AP) The chief of
the St. Petersburg Police Department says
he's outraged by the death of an 8-year-
old girl gunned down after a barrage of
bullets were fired into a home.
Paris Whitehead-Hamilton was sleep-
ing early Sunday when someone fired
more than 50 shots from a semiautomatic
rifle. She was struck three times in the
back after running from her bed to the liv-


ing room.
At a news conference Tuesday, Chief
Chuck Harmon said the shooting appears
to stem from a feud that began a few weeks
ago and escalated through the weekend.
One of the men inside the home the
night of crime was involved in a shooting
the previous evening, and may have been
one of the intended targets.
A teenager has been charged with Par-
is' death, and police are looking for at least
three others.

Two UF students to appear
on 'Wheel of Fortune'
Scott Sakowitz and Matt
Friedman practiced clapping,
calling out letters and even
smiling for their appearance
on "Wheel of Fortune."
The two UF students, both
members of Alpha Epsilon Pi
Fraternity, will appear on the
show this week. Sakowitz, a
zoology junior, will appear to-
morrow and Friedman, a soph-
omore, will appear Friday.
Sakowitz applied over the
summer, and Friedman ap-
plied when he was in high
school. They received e-mails
in September asking them to
come to a second audition at
Sea World.

Three weeks later, they re-
ceived the call telling them they
would appear on the show.
"That was when we realized
we were going to be on the show
together," Sakowitz said. "I
thought, 'Oh no, this isn't good.
I don't want to compete against
him. He's good."
Friedman said they told the
producers they knew each other,
and the producers made sure
they did not appear on the same
show.
Because "Wheel of Fortune"
tapes a week's worth of shows
in one day, Sakowitz and Fried-
man were able to drive to Or-
lando and tape their episodes
together.
"I've never been so nervous
in my life, except for maybe my
bar mitzvah," Friedman said.
"I'm very nervous; you can see
it in my show. I felt like the Wil-
liam Hung of 'Wheel of For-
tune.'"
Friedman ended up winning
a trip for two to San Francisco
including a blimp ride. Sakow-
itz won a trip to Bermuda. Nei-
ther will comment on how much
money they won until after their
shows air.

Program aims to dispel stereotypes of homeless


By MATT TRIPP
Alligator Contributing Writer

Kyle Evers' Tuesday start-
ed like many other people in
Gainesville. He woke up at
about 7 a.m. next to his wife with
his dog at the foot of the bed.
He then got up, ate breakfast
and took a shower. But the dif-
ference between Evers and most
other Gainesville residents is
that he woke up in a tent, where
he has lived for the past three
months, and his shower and
breakfast came from St. Francis
House, a local homeless shelter.
Evers, 21, spoke at UF Tues-
day night along with three
other homeless or previously
homeless people as part the So-
ciety of Professional Journalists'
"Faces of Homelessness" Speak-
ers Bureau program. Eighteen
students attended.
Evers and his wife have
been homeless for the last sev-
eral years. They came to Gaines-
ville's Tent City three months
ago from Palatka.
Tent City is a wooded area
off of Depot Road in southeast
Gainesville where many of Ala-
chua County's 1,600 homeless
people live.
The bureau regularly brings


homeless people to UF to speak
to students and dispel stereo-
types, said Amanda Gunn, co-
ordinator of the bureau.
"It's a learning event, we're
trying to break the myths about
homeless people," Gunn said.
When Gunn asked the audi-
ence what they thought when
they heard the word "home-
less," responses included
"dirty," "mentally disturbed"
and "bearded."
Yet the homeless people in
the room met none of the de-
scriptions.
Three of the four said they
had been raised in middle-class
families and never expected to
be homeless.
Gunn said that many don't
realize why some people end up
on the streets.
Reasons range from natural
disasters, losing jobs, domes-
tic violence, lack of affordable
housing or substance abuse, she
said.
Colin Simmons, a 20-year-old
journalism major, went to the
event to learn more about the
what the homeless go through.
"Seeing the dichotomy
between young college stu-
dents and young homeless
people was amazing," he said.


IVIdLll 111l / i"lllg^ du
Rahda Selvester, 50 and Jim McCarron, 37, both former homeless people, speak to students Tuesday evening
in Weimer Hall. They and two other speakers came as part of the Faces of Homelessness Speakers Bureau
program to speak to students about their lives and experiences being homeless.

SG discusses Reitz,


campus group funding


By CHELSEA KEENAN
Alligator Writer

UF's Student Senate discussed up-
coming changes to the Reitz Union's
food choices, including the closing of
Wendy's, at Tuesday night's meeting.
Reitz Union director Eddie Daniels
stopped by at the beginning of the meet-
ing to update senators on the upcoming
changes. Pollo Tropical, the fast-food
Latin restaurant replacing the Italian
chain, Capeesh, should open by early
July, he said.
But Latin food won't be the only new
dish.
Daniels said Papa John's Pizza will
take over Subway's spot. He said Sub-
way will move to the ground floor and
will offer three lines instead of two.
Wendy's will leave the Reitz Union
on May 1, with Burger King or Chee
Burger Chee Burger taking its place dur-
ing the summer.
"Wendy's made a business decision
that they can no longer continue under
(Aramark's) terms," Daniels said. "The
university really has no choice in the
matter. The contract between Wendy's
and Aramark will no longer work out."
Later in the meeting, senators hotly
debated for nearly a half hour before
passing a resolution supporting the
DREAM Act. A resolution is a piece of
legislation that states the opinion of Sen-
ate but takes no action.
Some senators took issue with the
resolution's phrasing and proposed the
wording be changed to merely encour-
age students to educate themselves on
the issue.


But the majority felt Senate should
take a stance.
"Vote it up or vote it down based
on what you believe," said Orange and
Blue Sen. Jonathan Ossip, who urged
senators not to water down the resolu-
tion's wording.
The DREAM Act, which will be
brought before the U.S. Congress in
October, would allow undocumented
students to attend a university. To be
eligible for college, the students must
have lived in the U.S. before turning 16
years old and must have a high school
diploma or its equivalent to be eligible.
Earlier, about 15 members from
Gators for a Sus-
Student tainable Campus
Government stopped by to speak
about recently being
denied SG funds from the Budget and
Appropriations Committee.
Committee chairwoman Virlany Ta-
boada said next year the organization,
which is three years old, could receive
funding from a new SG agency, Gators
Going Green, which replaced Senate's
Environmental Affairs Cabinet.
UF wildlife ecology and conserva-
tion senior Sara Hutton, the president of
Gators for a Sustainable Campus, said
the organization will seek funding from
a different Senate committee.
Still, she said she scheduled a meet-
ing with Vice President of Student Af-
fairs Patricia Telles-Irvin to ensure fund-
ing for next year.
"We are going on good faith and
assuming SG has the best intentions in
mind," Hutton said. "We don't want to
make this into a political battle."


Flags were planted to symbolize abortions


VIGIL, from page 1


expressed opposition to President Barack
Obama's policies on abortion.
Lorrie Kenney, interim executive director of
A Woman's Answer Medical Center, spoke to
a crowd of about 20 members of the Pro-Life
Alliance on the Reitz Union North Lawn Tues-
day night.
"Our mission is to intercept harmful behav-
iors and help women in the crisis that they feel


they're in by providing educational materials
about their options," Kenney said.
"We feel very strongly that a
Local woman who does seek an abor-
NeWS tion should be equipped with
education of the physical and
emotional risks."
Aguerrevere said she hoped the event would
bring abortion to the attention of passers-by.
"You're discriminating against someone
who's smaller than you and less developed
and in a different location," Aguerrevere said.

People encouraged to voice opinions


PROTEST, from page 1


Biro said students and faculty should en-
courage friends to voice their stance against
UF layoffs and program cuts to public rep-
resentatives.
Paul Ortiz, the UF history professor who
hosted the rally, said he understands that,
in the present economic crisis, everyone is
hurting.
But education shouldn't be cut on any
level, he said, in an interview after the
event.
"Education cuts don't heal," Ortiz said.
He also said the recession makes educat-
ing college students even more important
because they will help pull the U.S. out of
its economic downturn.
Steve Holt, a UF political science senior
who signed each petition, said Florida's ed-
ucation is also the key to rebuilding its own
economy.
Cuts in state funding to education repre-
sent cuts to opportunities for future genera-
tions, he said.
Between 150 and 200 people signed each
of the event's petitions, an effort led by Co-
alition Save Our Schools, according to Nina
Martinez, a volunteer for the student-run
organization.
One petition will be sent to representa-
tives in Tallahassee, while the other is in-
tended to circulate among President Ma-
chen, UF Provost Joe Glover and UF Board
of Trustees members.
In an interview after the speech, Biro, the


president of UF's United Faculty of Florida,
said the problem goes beyond the state Leg-
islature and involves UF's response to the
proposed cuts.
He said he worries UF's administration
will use the cuts to pursue its own agenda
without consulting students and faculty.
"If Machen or Glover think that UF needs
to shift its direction, let them say why and
let the various constituents discuss it, and if
a consensus emerges that it is a good idea,
then it will be done," Biro said.
Alluding to the still uncertain nature of
the cuts, Biro said he believes the Legisla-
ture will enact cuts that are less than those
predicted by UF.
"Education cuts don't heal."
Paul Ortiz
UF history professor, rally host

"UF wants those predictions to govern
rather than the reality," he said.
But spokeswoman Janine Sikes insist-
ed UF is fighting to limit budget cuts and
said by April 16 she anticipates the budget
reduction proposals from all colleges and
administrative units will be posted on UF's
budget Web site, budget.president.ufl.edu,
to encourage discussion before decisions
are made.
She said the biggest problem in planning
for the cuts is the uncertainty surrounding
the size of them.
"We just don't know what it's going to
look like yet," she said.


Campus groups representing five different faiths gathered at the forum

from his faith and his family.
"The part that is there that
makes me do things is personal
responsibility," he said.
Dave Baum, a former UF stu-

Editorial

Vermont Victory

Governor veto no match

for same-sex marriage
Starting Sept. 1, the state of Vermont will legally recognize
same-sex marriages, thanks to legislative action, rather
than a court ruling.
Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas vetoed the bill addressing the
subject, but support by the Senate and House of Representa-
tives overrode his opinion on the matter.
While the margin of vote in the Senate was overwhelming-
ly in favor of the bill, roll-call in the House of Representatives
proved to be a tenuous situation where a two-thirds margin
was barely achieved.
The passage of the legislation marks a total of four states in
the United States that protect same-sex marriage by law as Ver-
mont joins the ranks of Massachusetts, Iowa and Connecticut.
News from Vermont may only be the start of a wave of
states passing similar measures as New Jersey, Rhode Island
and Maine continue to work to push bills dealing with same-
sex marriage.
The Editorial Board applauds the Vermont state legislature
for its open-minded approach to the same-sex marriage bill as
well as for coming together in the wake of Douglas' veto.
Thanks to the newly minted legislation, members of the gay
community in Vermont will be afforded the same legal rights
enjoyed by those in a heterosexual marriage.
We can only hope the other states considering same-sex
marriage bills of their own can look to a state like Vermont for
guidance and direction.
While Tuesday's announcement may only directly affect the
citizens of the state of Vermont, there is no discounting the no-
tion that America has made yet another stride toward achieving
equality for all.


Kudos to Kumar


rom channeling his in-
ner stoner in "Harold
and Kumar" to portray-
ing a doctor on "House," Kal
Penn has displayed an ability
to play a wide array of differ-
ent personalities throughout
his career.
His latest role, however,
will take him far away from
the glitz and glamor of the sil-
ver screen all the way to the
White House.
After dedicating a great
deal of time to President Ba-
rack Obama's election cam-
paign, Penn was offered and
has now accepted the position
of associate director of the
White House Office of Public
Liaison.
As a result, Penn will be
putting his acting career on
hold, focusing all of his at-
tention on forging a bond be-
tween the Obama administra-
tion and the Asian-American
community.
While Penn's parts have
portrayed him as everything
from a terrorist to an under-


achieving slacker, there is no
questioning his stellar aca-
demic background.
After double majoring at
the University of California,
Los Angeles in film and so-
ciology, Penn balanced his
acting career by earning an
international security gradu-
ate certificate from Stanford
University.
And lest we forget men-
tioning his time spent as a lec-
turer, teaching a media class
at the University of Pennsyl-
vania.
Penn's choice to put aside
the fame and fortune of Holly-
wood to work for the Obama
administration shows a ma-
ture young man following his
true calling in life.
If Penn can bring to his
new position the same effort
and passion exhibited by him
in "The Namesake," there is
no doubt he will enjoy great
success during his tenure in
Washington.
If not, there's always "Har-
old and Kumar 3."

Column

Brown's promising
Chris Brown catapulted to the highest heights of
fame at the age of 16 for having "the dance moves
of Usher and a voice all his own." Three years
later, he was charged for domestic violence against long-
time girlfriend and fellow R&B singer Rihanna, to which
he pleaded not guilty.
While I am not necessarily a huge Chris Brown fan,
my little brother is and that is what worries me. Those
in the spotlight are setting examples to very impression-
able children, and Brown's actions are sending a horrible
message to his young fans. Raising your hand to strike
someone is neither involuntary nor an accident. Yes, it
may be done in the heat of a moment, but there is still a
conscious decision to make that move to strike (or bite, in
this case), and that is never acceptable.
According to the Domestic Violence Project of Silicon
Valley, domestic violence happens 10 times more often
than it is reported, making it the most under-reported
crime in the United States.
The Chriannah (Don't you just love the way Holly-
wood names squash together oh-so-perfectly?) incident
is a great wake-up call for this nation.
Many have called Rihanna out for getting the police
involved, and even more have stated that it was she who
instigated the attack. The truth of the matter is that no-
body other than the two involved knows all of the facts.
However, too many people both men and women -
sit idly by and take abuse, both physical and psychologi-
cal. Even if Rihanna turns out to be the instigator, it is
important that the authorities were informed.
Since a great deal of the details about the case and
the two celebrities involved are coming from the likes of
Perez Hilton and the reporting powerhouse that is TMZ,


future now in doubt
it may be a little hard to take the
issue seriously.
I'm not saying the attention
isn't warranted, though. By all
means, Perez, blog to your heart's
a content. The more coverage the
Naudia Jawad issue of domestic violence gets,
letters@alligatororg the better it is for us all. With the
couple's position in the public
eye, it is even more of a motivator to break this pattern
of violence that lurks in the darkness because not enough
people are willing to talk about it.
Regardless of what comes of his ruling, this case
pointed out that it could happen to basically anybody
even the perfect people in the spotlight. It may even
happen again, since Rihanna has purportedly decided to
take him back. Some people just don't learn.
Locking Brown away isn't going to solve the prob-
lem as much as getting him proper counseling. Instead
of making this into a bigger spectacle than it already is,
how about we call off the mobs, bring in the therapists
and get these kids some help?
Only time will tell whether or not Brown's career is
over. He has already lost a few of his endorsement deals,
and his music was pulled off of various radio stations
since the charges were filed against him in early Febru-
ary.
Maybe he'll pull a T.I. on everybody and get MTV to
follow him around as he talks to kids to make sure they
don't go down the same path stranger things have
happened.

Guest column

Money-hungry insurance companies continue to play games


H ealth insurance companies are
scared shitless.
How scared are they?
So scared that they've told Congress they
are willing to drop the lucrative practice of
risk rating. Risk rating is where someone
like myself a healthy, young white male
- can get excellent health coverage for less
than $2,000 a year.
However, someone with the same age
and health status but who had cancer when
he was 5 and has been in remission ever
since will pay more than $10,000 per year.
Exchange the word "cancer" in the last
sentence with just about any sickness from
severe acne to HIV/AIDS and you have risk
rating in a nutshell.
People who are sick, whether by genet-
ics or lifestyle, are forced into debt by sky-
high insurance premiums or back-breaking
medical bills.
But in the name of cooperation, insur-
ance companies are now willing to get rid
of this approach, albeit with a slight catch
- if Congress forces every single person in
the United States to buy insurance cover-
age.


Seriously, guys?
That's like GM saying it'll improve gas
mileage if we are all forced to buy at least
a Chevrolet Malibu. What's more, they still
retain the right to charge more by age and
geographic location, and they can still deny
claims at will as they so often do. Basically,
the only thing that changes is they make
tons of money because they now have 50
million new customers.
So what would scare them into such gen-
erous bargaining, you might ask?
One word: competition.
President Barack Obama and Congress
are considering forming a new public in-
surance plan similar to the one currently
employed by Medicare (government health
insurance available to every citizen over 65)
that would be available for anyone in the
United States to buy.
This plan would be cheaper than private
plans because Medicare can run on admin-
istrative costs of about three percent, com-
pared to about 26 percent for the private
sector.
These cost savings are possible because
unlike for-profit insurance companies,


Brandon Sack Uncle Sam doesn't
Speaking Out have to pay dividends
to investors, doesn't
have to pay ridiculous
executive salaries, doesn't need to spend
gobs of money on marketing schemes and
doesn't need to hire legions of middlemen
to deny claims and peddle their products.
All in all, we waste over $300 billion a
year on this administrative muck wrought
by health insurance companies.
Republican lawmakers, the dukes of
competition, are vehemently opposed to
this new public program because "forcing
free-market plans to compete with these
government-run programs would create an
unlevel playing field and inevitably doom
true competition," says Mitch McConnell,
Senate minority leader.
You heard him allowing competition
into the marketplace would doom competi-
tion. For example, we wouldn't want to lose
the competition we have in private health
insurance now, which is five companies
dominating most of the market share in al-
most every state.
One real concern not being articulated


by most opponents of the public plan is that
it would underpay physicians and hospitals
in order to generate lower yearly premiums
for customers. However, this is unlikely
since providers (physicians and hospitals)
would not be willing to accept a public plan
that underpays them, and people would
not buy it if they knew they couldn't use it
anywhere.
If nothing else, the physician lobby is
too strong to let something like that slip by
were it ever to become a serious consider-
ation.
In short, health insurance companies
have a right to be scared. They know that
they can't compete with anything like
Medicare. Medicare is more efficient, more
robust and better-liked by customers and
providers than private plans.
And while just having a government-
run health insurance side-by-side with the
private system isn't quite the single-payer
option we need, it's a big step in eliminat-
ing the for-profit parasite plaguing our
health care system.

sciences graduate student.

UF BASEBALL

Tucker lives up to preseason hype in Gators' win


By KYLE MAISTRI
Alligator Staff Writer
kmaistri@alligator.org

When UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan
and his players were asked which
freshman impressed them the most
during the preseason, one name
surfaced time and again Preston
Tucker.
The freshman slugger got off to a
slow start in his first year as a Gator
but showed again on Tuesday why
his big bat merited so much pre-
season hype.
The left-handed first baseman
went 4 for 4 with a home run and
four RBIs and drew a walk in his oth-
er plate appearance, lifting UF (20-
11) to a 12-7 victory against visiting
Bethune-Cookman (15-16).
"He's always hit. He's probably
hit since he was 4 years old. He's
a natural hitter," O'Sullivan said.
"What he's doing right now, we're
not totally surprised, to be honest
with you. That's why we recruited
him. He's a guy we've been bragging
about since Day 1."
Tucker's 2-run opposite-field
bomb in the first inning put the
Gators ahead 3-1 early, and after the
Wildcats battled back to tie the game


at 6 in the top of sixth inning, he again
gave UF the lead with a two-out sin-
gle that drove in Daniel Pigott.
Tucker's combined stat line from
Tuesday night's game with Bethune-
Cookman and Sunday's finale with
Vanderbilt reads: 7-for-8 hitting, 4
runs, three home runs and nine RBIs.
In the last two games, four of his at-
bats have given the Gators a lead.
"I was being overaggressive. I
guess you could say I was swinging
at bad pitches," Tucker said of his
early approach.
"I was going up there guessing,
looking for anything to hit, and now
I'm waiting on one pitch, and once I
get it, I'm hitting it."
O'Sullivan frequently used Tucker
as the designated hitter at the begin-
ning of the season, but the freshman
has become the everyday first base-
man and has been hitting in the fifth
spot in the lineup. His .347 average
ranks second on the team behind
only junior Matt den Dekker, and his
four home runs are tied for the team
lead with den Dekker and senior Av-
ery Barnes. He also leads the team
with 28 RBIs.
As a team, UF is averaging 8 runs

UF steps up game


for rivalry with FSU


m OUT-OF-STATE GATORS
ARE GROWING FAMILIAR
WITH THE SEMINOLES.

By ADAM BERRY
Alligator Staff Writer
aberry@alligator.org

Like learning to ride a bike or
how to drive a car, understand-
ing the nature of the beast that is
the UF-FSU rivalry doesn't come
naturally to everyone.
For sophomore right fielder
Kelsey Bruder, who grew up
across the country from the sto-
ried in-state rivalry, the yearly
showdown didn't mean nearly as
much to her a year ago as it did to
the team's native Floridians.


Now, after a full season and
half in orange and blue, the Semi-
noles' garnet and gold inspires a
more emotional reaction.
"Honestly, I wasn't aware
UF and FSU existed. We were
more in-tune to the UCLA and
(Southern Cal) rivalry," said
Bruder, who came
to Gainesville from
Corona, Calif.
"People get
Softball crazy here. People
who aren't even in-
volved in athletics hate FSU for
some reason. It spills over and
makes us want to win."

UF GOLF

Windy day ends Gators' chances of finishing in first


By ANTHONY CHIANG
Alligator Writer

Any remaining hope for the
Gators to notch their first tourna-
ment victory was blown away on
Tuesday.
Wind gusts of up to 28 mph
helped to deflate the team's mo-
rale early on.
The No. 30 UF women's golf
team shot a combined score of 10
over par in their first three holes
of the day at the Lady Gator Invi-
tational, widening the once-nar-
row gap of three strokes between
them and first place.
The Gators finished the final
round with a team score of 87
over par for the tournament and
came in fifth place on their home


course, 14 shots behind first-place
Duke and Auburn.
Auburn eventually beat Duke
in a playoff for the title.
"The wind affected everybody.
That's why the scores were so
high," UF coach Jill Briles-Hinton
said. "I mean, the course is hard
enough, but when you add this
kind of wind, it's brutal."
UF could not extend its win
streak at their home tournament
to four consecutive years, but
sophomore Jessica Yadloczky ex-
tended a streak of her own.
Her score of 16 over par for the
tournament tied for the fourth-
best individual score. This is the
fourth straight event that she
finished in the top 10 as an indi-
vidual.


Freshmen Andrea Watts and
Evan Jensen also finished near
the top of the individual leader-
board.
Watts tied for
the 11th-best in-
dividual score
at 18 over par,
and Jensen fin-
ished in a tie for
the 13th-lowest
individual score
Briles-Hinton
at 20 over par.
Weather conditions and the
opportunity to finish in first place
on the last day of the tournament
were a perfect simulation of fu-
ture tough and pressure-packed
moments.
"You can't really create this
experience in practice," Briles-


Hinton said. "They learned a
valuable lesson this week."
Although the wind did affect
the team's play, it should not
have been unfamiliar conditions
to the Gators.
"We've been playing in wind
all season, so it was just a throw-
back to be here at home with all
this wind," Yadloczky said.
With this tournament act-
ing as motivation, UF will enter
postseason play in the Southeast-
ern Conference Championship,
which begins on April 17.
"This is definitely extra mo-
tivation heading into the SECs,"
Briles-Hinton said.
"I think that sometimes a team
will take two steps forward and
have to take one step back to get


better, and that's what we will
do."
MEN FINISH TOURNAMENT IN 13TH:
The No. 5 UF men's golf team
will enter the postseason follow-
ing their worst performance of the
spring season.
The Gators finished the fi-
nal round of the U.S. Collegiate
Championship in Alpharetta,
Ga., in 13th place with a team
score of 45 over par.
Clemson won the event with
a score of 12 over par, 33 strokes
better than the Gators.
Junior Tyson Alexander shot 2
under par on Tuesday, but it was
not enough to move up the lea-
derboard as the rest of the team
shot a combined score of 27 over
par in the final round.

BASE, from page 14


per game over their last eight contests, and
the top of the order has been especially con-
sistent.
O'Sullivan found his leadoff hitter when
he moved den Dekker to the top of the line-
up, and it now seems O'Sullivan has found
his No. 2 hitter as well. Pigott has hit be-


hind den Dekker in each of the last three
games and logged his first career home run
in the first inning against the Wildcats on
Tuesday.
While the offense is flourishing, the
defense and pitching continue to be weak
spots for UF, which will face off with UCF
tonight at 6:30 in McKethan Stadium.
Mike Mooney who committed two
errors against Bethune-Cookman and


Josh Adams have been the two shortstops
to this point in the season,
and though the pair has
combined for 20 errors on
Baseball the season, O'Sullivan says
he's sticking with the duo
at shortstop.
"It's probably going to be one of those
guys unless we can call somebody up from
Triple-A," he said.


Senior starter Patrick Keating continued
his struggles on the mound, giving up 6
runs on seven hits in his 5 1/3 innings of
work.
The right-hander has been moved out of
the weekend rotation and is being used pri-
marily in relief and as a mid-week starter.
"It's not his stuff, it's just his location,"
O'Sullivan said. "Better location, better re-
sults. It's as simple as that."


Quick start critical for one-game meeting

Conference) and the Seminoles (29-12) at
6 p.m.will have a little more meaning than
it did last season, when the Gators won the
doubleheader by a combined score of 20-5.
For Bruder, becoming more familiar with
the in-state rivalry included a healthy dose of
Tim Tebow and the UF football team.
"I know when I was watching the UF-FSU
game, I was on my toes watching Tebow get
all crazy, and that definitely makes me want
to beat FSU just like they did," she said.
Sophomore second baseman Aja Paculba,
another of the Gators' eight native Califor-
nians, said before last season's matchup that
it would take time to get as emotionally in-
vested in the rivalry as her teammates. Now,
Paculba has grown to appreciate the in-state
competition, adding that a midweek game
against the Seminoles will help the team stay
focused for its weekend series at Kentucky.
"I don't think we take it any different be-
cause it's FSU," Paculba said. "If it were any
other team, I think it would be kind of like,
'Oh it's just a midweek game. Whatever.' But


because it's FSU, it's going to keep us in that
focus for the SECs."
Although most of UF coach Tim Walton's
players didn't grow up on either side of the
competition, they all understand its impor-
tance.
"Florida State is Florida State. It's a great
rivalry," Walton said.
"As long as you're going to school here,
(the rivalry) means a lot to you. All you have
to do is go to any sporting event whether
it's soccer or football you'll know how im-
portant it is and how important it is to win at
home."
In addition to defending its home field,
getting out to a quick start will be critical for
UF, as early momentum will be key in its first
single-game matchup with FSU in the last
four years.
Although the Gators have won their last
four games against the Seminoles, the in-state
rivalry always provides tough competition.
"FSU's been playing really well this year,
so I know they're going to come out really
strong," Bruder said. "We've just got to stay
on our toes, stay focused and not take any-
body for granted."


EVAN, from page 14


time, every single shot is a potential game-winner. If you
truly care about a team, each shot by its opponent strikes
fear in your heart, and each shot by your team gets your
legs ready to jump for joy.
Almost every hockey game is close. A 20-point lead in
basketball heading into the fourth quarter is all but in-
surmountable. Same with a 5-run lead in the bottom of
the ninth inning or a three-touchdown advantage with 15


minutes left.
And here are two more words that should get you ex-
cited: playoff beards.
On the ice, a 3-0 lead at the onset of the third period is
still a game. All it takes is three trips down the ice, and a
comfortable lead becomes a nail-biter.
Now, I know your reaction to me telling you to watch
hockey might be the same reaction I had two days ago
when a colleague tried to convince me to get into Turkish
Siiper Lig soccer. But I'm not asking you to follow teams
in another country. Unless you count Canada.


What will make the NHL playoffs more interesting is
if you pick a team to cheer for. It doesn't matter who you
choose. The Vancouver Canucks. The Philadelphia Fly-
ers. The San Jose Sharks. If you were born and raised in
Florida, the Panthers might sneak in this season.
Just pick a team and follow them. And if you have a
high-definition television, that's even better. No sport
benefits more from high definition than hockey.
So, to summarize: Watch the NHL playoffs. It's an ex-
hilarating experience if you just give it a try.
Alright, I did my best. You can stop reading now.

UF GYMNASTICS

Hartung, Sinclair use dance to amp up teammates


By EUGENIO TORRENS
Alligator Writer

It has elements of Tae Bo, dancing and
gymnastics all rolled into one.
It is nameless for now but it can't go
unrecognized.
What started as a time-killing dance in
practice at the beginning of the season has
evolved into a no-longer-behind-closed-doors
dance routine between Melanie Sinclair and
Corey Hartung.
Since the dance number's infancy, the duo
has added to the routine, proving it wasn't just
an alternative to thumb-twiddling in practice
while waiting around.
"We did it at the meets because they play
good pump-up music," Hartung said. "So Mel


and I are always, 'Let's go on the floor and do
our dance.' We're always silly and playing
around anyway."
Perhaps it's the dance itself, or Sinclair and
Hartung's attempts to keep a straight face dur-
ing the dance, but it has caught on.
Hartung said sometimes the other gym-
nasts just ask them to put on the show.
It's a show that started spontaneously, but
a show that requires the right beat. And yes,
the beat is imperative. It can't be too fast. It
can't be too slow. It has to be just right, and
that means something that both Sinclair and
Hartung can dance to, including "Wop" by J.
Dash and "Womanizer" by Britney Spears.
UF coach Rhonda Faehn said she didn't
have anything like the dance when she was a
member of the UCLA gymnastics team.


"I think that we were almost too afraid to
be acting like we were not focusing in the (bye
rounds) or in the locker room," Faehn said.
While it's not a custom she grew up with,
she loves the notion of her
team being comfortable
and mature enough to have
fun in the locker room and
carry it out on the competi-
tion floor.
Sinclair said she doesn't
mind doing the dance at
Hartung competitions.
"I think it loosens me up
because instead of sitting in the corner waiting
and overthinking my skills, I'm doing some-
thing that I enjoy doing," she said.
And the twosome has put the routine on


display at some significant venues, most re-
cently the NCAA North Central Regional
Championship in Iowa City, Iowa, where the
dance was caught on the video screen, and at
the Southeastern Conference Championships.
"It just blossomed into this thing that we
just do every meet now, over and over," Sin-
clair said. "Every time a good beat comes on,
we'll look at each other like, 'It's time.'"
GATORS IN SESSION 1: On the heels of winning
the NCAA North Central Regional Cham-
pionship, the No. 5 UF gymnastics team will
compete in Session 1 of the NCAA Champion-
ships beginning April 16.
There are two sessions, each consisting of
six teams. The top three teams from each ses-
sion advance to the Super Six competition,
where the NCAA champion will be crowned.


Saints mercy-rule Vikings in both games of doubleheader


* THE TWO CONTESTS END-
ED IN 8-0 WINS FOR SFC.

By KELSIE HOECHERL
Alligator Writer

The Santa Fe College softball
team showed no mercy to St.
John's River Community College
in a doubleheader Tuesday.
The Saints (41-5, 16-4 Mid-
Florida Conference) mercy-ruled
the Vikings in both games, win-
ning 8-0 each time.
"Two run-rule games are al-


ways good, especially when
they are conference games," SFC
coach Chris Ahern said. "We had
a good contribution today from
everyone who played. We used
all our weapons. It was a total
team effort."
In Game 1, the Saints jumped
on the Vikings early, putting up
1 run in the first inning compli-
ments of a shot over the left-field
fence by sophomore outfielder
Lawna Hunter.
Pitcher Kimberly Squires (21-
3) started the game off strong,


striking out the first three batters
she faced.
She recorded six total strike-
outs in Game 1 with no runs on
six hits.
"We used all our weapons.
It was a total team effort."
Chris Ahern
Santa Fe softball coach

Squires also helped herself
out, going 2 for 4 at the plate with
two RBIs.
SFC finished off SJRCC in the


bottom of the fifth inning with
a string of hits from sophomore
outfielder Brittany Cannon, soph-
omore second baseman Nadirah
Nesfield, Hunter and Squires that
produced 4 consecutive runs.
Hunter proved indispensable
in the back-to-back games, going
4 for 8 at the plate and bringing
home three runners.
The Saints kept the hits com-
ing in their second game of the
afternoon. Sophomore shortstop
Erika Garcia went 3 for 4 with
two RBIs, and Cannon was 2 for 4


with one RBI.
Sophomore pitcher Ashley
Schmitt (18-2) and freshman Ali
Savage proved too much for the
Vikings to handle, as they weren't
able to produce a run in the sec-
ond game either.
Schmitt allowed three hits in
five innings, and Savage finished
the game with no hits in the top
of the sixth.
"We came out strong on of-
fense and defense," Schmitt said.
"We just did great and kept it up
both games."
