Video shows events surrounding shooting


Beanbag, rifle shots occur within 5 seconds


By CAROLYN TILLO
Alligator Staff Writer

Kofi Adu-Brempong's story has
been told through the shouts of pro-
testers and the text of police reports.
Six students heard and saw
a different side of the story at a
Gainesville house Monday night as
they watched a video taken by Adu-
Brempong's neighbor on the night
of the March 2 shooting.
The video, which is about 10
minutes long, includes the sounds
of the beanbag rounds and gunshots
fired at Adu-Brempong and shows


the five police officers breaking into
Adu-Brempong's apartment.
The neighbor who created the
film, who wishes to remain anony-
mous, began filming upon hearing
police say they were going to gas
Adu-Brempong's apartment.
The video footage shows Profes-
sor Peter Waylen, Adu-Brempong's
adviser, trying to talk with Adu-
Brempong through a window.
It also shows the officers trying
to converse with Adu-Brempong
through the window and asking
him to open the door. Waylen is
seen and heard asking the officers


for more time.
An officer breaks down Adu-
Brempong's door while three of-
ficers with guns pose outside the
door. The officers enter Adu-Brem-
pong's apartment, and Adu-Brem-
pong says, "I'm OK."
The sounds of three beanbag
rounds and two assault
Special rifles follow. About
Report 52 seconds elapses be-
tween the time the first
officer enters and the time the last
shot was fired. All five shots were
fired in five seconds.
Viewers cannot see Adu-Brem-


pong being shot, but they do see
they officers entering with guns and
hear the shots fired.
"I hope that he's not dead," the
neighbor said in the silence follow-
ing the firing of the shots.
Officer Keith Smith ran from the
apartment following the shots. Oth-
er officers called him back.
Dave Schneider, an organizer of
the shooting protests who was pres-
ent at the screening, saw the video
for the first time Monday.
"If you can imagine the most
disturbing movie you've ever seen,
it's probably like on that level," Sch-
neider said.
He said all six students present at
Monday's gathering worked to edit


the video and add explanatory cap-
tions so it could be posted online.
"Our objective is that everyone
knows this story by the end of the
week or by the end of the month or
whatever," Schneider said.
Adu-Brempong, a geography
Ph.D. candidate from Ghana, was
shot by UPD Officer Keith Smith in
his Corry Village apartment.
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement spokesman Mike Morri-
son couldn't say whether the video
had much of an impact on the final
report, which was completed Thurs-
day but not released.
t .; reporters viewed the video
Monday evening. 1/,;t.-, staff writer

STUDENT ACTIVISM

500 march in favor


of workers' rights


By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Holding signs with slogans
like "We Want Justice," a crowd
of about 500 people, including
about 25 UF students, marched
this weekend from Tampa to
Lakeland in support of better
wages and working conditions for
Florida tomato pickers.
The Farmworker Freedom
March, which took place Friday
through Sunday, was an effort
led by the Coalition of Immokalee
Workers (CIW) to demand Publix
Super Markets Inc. join a partner-
ship among farmworkers, Florida
tomato growers and eight other
food corporations to end farm la-
bor abuse.
The CIW, a group that lobbies
food corporations to improve the
wages and working conditions for
workers in Immokalee, has been
pressuring Publix to sign a work-
er contract since 2007.
The agreement would require
the company to only sell tomatoes
picked at places where a worker
code of conduct exists and would
give workers a penny-per-pound
increase in their wages, said CIW


"People are going to keep
questioning [Publix] if
they refuse to work with
the CIW. It doesn't make
sense. With the refusal,
they are helping to perpe-
trate the abuses."
Gerardo Reyes
ClW member

member Gerardo Reyes.
"People are going to keep ques-
tioning [Publix] if they refuse to
work with the CIW," Reyes said.
"It doesn't make sense. With the
refusal, they are helping to perpe-
trate the abuses."
When the marchers arrived at
the Publix headquarters in Lake-
land, they were met by company
representatives and some coun-
ter-protesters.
Dwaine Stevens, a spokesman
for Publix, said in an e-mail that
the march revolved around a dis-
pute between suppliers and their
employees and does not involve
Publix.

Fusing disease
research

"So you do
research on diseases
when did you
become a medi-
cal doctor?" is a
question I regularly
hear. I'm actually
a geographer. In
the past, medical
doctors were nearly
the only ones doing Andrew Tatem
disease research,
but recently things have been changing.
Today, disease-related research projects
need skills that are found across campus.
This was illustrated by a recent project
exploring malaria elimination on Zan-
zibar. We needed medical doctors and
biologists to obtain malaria and mos-
quito data, geographers and statisticians
to map disease risk, climatologists to
address seasonal risk, sociologists to help
quantify human travel, mathematicians
and computer scientists to model malaria
transmission, economists to estimate the
costs of eliminating malaria, and lawyers
to explore plan implementation.
Just a snapshot of the skills needed,
this shows why UF's Emerging Patho-
gens Institute (www.epi.ufl.edu) has
been established. By fusing disciplines,
EPI will develop outreach, education
and research capabilities designed to
preserve Florida's health and economy,
and to prevent or contain new and re-
emerging diseases.

UF to be tobacco-free
To promote the health and
well-being of faculty, staff, and stu-
dents, the University of Florida will be
going tobacco-free effective July 1. The use
of cigarettes or other tobacco products in
UF buildings, parking lots, or in vehicles
in these areas, will be prohibited.

I he UI- HAD course includes opportunities tor women to practice resistance moves.

RAD teaches safety strategies
"No, don't touch me! Get back. Stay away!" one woman loudly screamed.
It's not typical classroom sounds, but this is no ordinary class. Approximately 20 women -
University of Florida employees and students watch as one woman fights her attackers.
Two specially trained male University Police Department officers and a
female class leader serve as "attackers" in this Rape Aggression Defense class.
RAD is a national organization that teaches defensive options to
women and children. RAD includes a workbook, lecture, discussions and
opportunity to practice resistance moves.
"I was surprised at how empowering the class is," UF employee and
class attendee Shannon Cheek said. "Women walk away with a lot of
confidence."
According to Jeff Lamb, UPD officer and coordinator of the UF RAD
program, promoting safe thinking and behavior is essential.
"I want women to learn that they do not have to be polite or remain in a
situation where they are uncomfortable," Lamb said.
For several volunteers, the class is a labor of love. Officer Scott Summers regularly puts on a hot,
heavy safety suit on days off work from UPD, and encourages women to scream and hit him. Tina
Lamb and Joy Noll, certified RAD instructors, use vacation time from their jobs as UF financial aid
coordinators to instruct other women.
Tina Lamb assists her husband, Jeff, in the lecture and serves as an "attacker." Noll wears a
whistle and ensures that safety standards are constantly upheld.
UF RAD classes are free for students and employees. Employees may attend during work hours,
with supervisor approval. Basic Physical Defense, a prerequisite for advanced courses, will be offered
on April 21, 22 and 23, from 1 to 5 p.m. Employees may register at myUFL. For more information

Local 'swamp man'


to appear on TV


Ed Woods wades shoulder-deep in the swamp in Clewiston, Fla.


By CAROLINE LEWIS
Alligator Contributing Writer

A local man wants to reintro-
duce UF students to the swamp -
the Everglades, not the stadium.
Ed Woods, park director at Bil-
lie Swamp Safari in Clewiston,
Fla., will be the star of a new show
on National Geographic Wild,
"Swamp Men," which premieres
May 3 at 10 p.m.
Woods was born and raised in
Green Swamp and is passionate
about preserving wildlife.
"People could learn a lot from
watching the show," she said.
Woods lives near the Ichetuknee
River about 40 minutes north of
Gainesville. He spends most of his
time working in the Everglades,
managing the park while inform-
ing guests about natural Florida.
The show documents everyday
life of the staff at the swamp, said
Cindi Malin, the director of mar-
Courtesy Photo keting at Billie Swamp Safari.
"We have alligators that can
show up anywhere," she said. "We


have panthers and bears that roam
wild, and you never know when
they have to go out and rescue
one."
"If UF is representing the
alligator, then you should
really watch our show and
learn what the alligator is
all about."
Ed Woods
Billie Swamp Safari park director

The park is home to the majority
of the 80 to 90 endangered Florida
panthers in the wild, Woods said,
and there are about 15,000 crea-
tures in the park.
Woods said students and Gators
fans should watch the show or
visit the park if they want to know
more about what their mascot rep-
resents.
"You all have a stadium you
call the Swamp," he said. "If you
really want to know what a swamp
is about, come out here, and we'll
show you."


Paynes Prairie alligators to get frisky in mid-to-late April


* ALLIGATOR MATING SEASON
BEGINS IN MID TO LATE APRIL.

BY JENNY WILKINSON
Alligator Contributing Writer
The Gator Nation is getting frisky, but this
time it's not just the students.
Alligator mating season begins in mid to
late April, and Paynes Prairie workers are
hearing the bellows of males in the mood.


"When somebody's trying to start a lawn
mower and it won't start, that's what a large
male gator sounds like when it starts bellow-
ing," said Jan Powell, a volunteer at the Paynes
Prairie Visitor Center.
Powell, who has been working at the prai-
rie center for nine years, said alligators will
travel from one body of water to another to
find a mate during the warmer months. Pow-
ell said it is impossible for park rangers to keep
tabs on every animal during mating season be-
cause Paynes Prairie covers more than 21,000


acres of freshwater marsh.
She said although rangers typically leave
alligator nests alone, trails have been closed off
to visitors for safety reasons in the past. While
an attack has never happened,
Local Powell said 99 percent of the
News time an interaction between a
human and an alligators occurs,
the human was doing something stupid.
Max A. Nickerson, the curator of the Divi-
sion of Herpetology at the Florida Museum of
Natural History, does not perceive the season


to be a threat to people on campus either.
"I haven't seen any gators large enough re-
cently to be of mating age," he said.
Nickerson said male gators reach mating
maturity when they grow longer than 6 feet,
and the ones he's seen on campus were only
about 4 feet. In addition, Nickerson believes
precautions have been taken in the past few
years to ensure the safety of people and their
pets on campus.
Alligators aren't typically a problem to hu-
mans unless there is food around, he said.

Engineering students showcase robots on plaza


By MELINDA CARSTENSEN
Alligator Contributing Writer

Forget Optimus Prime.
Fourteen UF engineering students
proved Monday afternoon that their origi-
nal self-made and designed robots could
perform real-world tasks such as putting
out fire, taking out the trash and keeping
pets entertained.
A crowd of about 40 UF students and fac-
ulty stood in the New Engineering Building
to watch as students presented their robots,
which acted independently.
The robots were the final projects of stu-
dents in UF's Intelligent Machines Design
Laboratory.


Eric M. Schwartz, the associate direc-
tor of UF's Machine Intelligence laboratory
who helped students with their projects
this year, said the class is different because
it offers students hands-on experience.
The robot project has been assigned to
the class since 1993, and the robot showcase
has been held since 1997, Schwartz said.
"I just thought, the world has to see
this," he said.
On average, each robot cost about $250
to construct. But the College of Engineering
supplied students with connectors, wires,
LEDs and LCDs things every robot needs
in order to run, Schwartz said.
The robots had to be able to move
around, act independently and perform a


specific task, he said.
Although students had to follow these
requirements, UF computer engineering
senior Matt Shockley said they were given
complete freedom in how they chose to de-
sign their robots.
"You look around, and [the robots]
are all different, and that's great."
Matt Shockley
UF computer engineering senior

Shockley, who designed OMNI, an om-
ni-directional, autonomous robot that uses
infrared sensors to detect and move toward
specific colors, said the class doesn't com-


pare to any other he's taken because it's
about being creative.
"You look around, and [the robots] are
all different, and that's great," Shockley
said.
Students presented the SubjuGator, a
13-year-old submarine project by UF's Ma-
chine Intelligence Laboratory, along with a
solar-powered robot car designed by UF's
Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engi-
neers.
The solar car, which took second place at
the 2010 Institute of Electrical and Electron-
ic Engineers SoutheastCon hardware com-
petition in Charlotte, N.C., took students
nine months to make, said John Phillips, a
UF freshman who is not in the IMDL class.


Local officials, educators react to failed Senate Bill 6


* GOV. CRIST VETOED IT.

By SAMANTHA DELGADO
Alligator Contributing Writer

Some Alachua County teachers
are cheering Gov. Charlie Crist's
decision to veto the hotly contested
Senate Bill 6 last week.
According to Dan Boyd, super-
intendent of Alachua County public
schools, the bill would have greatly
demoralized teachers, which would


have been something the county
would not have been prepared to
deal with.
Supporters of Senate Bill 6 want-
ed teachers' salaries to be based on
student performances on standard-
ized testing, such as the FCAT. The
percentage of a teacher's students
who passed would determine
whether that teacher is performing
at a high enough standard.
Boyd said the legislature gave
teachers no input in the bill and
would have been an added expense


at the end of the school year, when
teachers have to develop courses
and lesson plans for the following
school year.
Boyd added Crist's decision
made him a "good
State Floridian."
News "I would hope I
would have the cour-
age to do what the governor did,"
Boyd said.
Although Crist listened to pleas
from the majority in Alachua Coun-
ty and the rest of Florida, Democrat-


ic officials are weary to say whether
this single decision will attract vot-
ers to the still-Republican governor,
who is quickly losing ground to his
U.S. Senate competitor, former Flor-
ida House Speaker Marco Rubio.
"I think he will be more attrac-
tive than the other Republican, but
he is still a Republican. And that
means something," said Jon Reis-
kind, Alachua County Democratic
Party chairman.
Stafford Jones, chairman of the
Alachua County Republican Party,


said there was a mixed reaction
from the veto among party mem-
bers, and it's hard to tell how much
it will affect Crist in the upcoming
election.
Jones said there could be a pos-
sibility that Republicans will try to
get the bill passed next year.
Jones, although noting the bill's
unpopular qualities of linking
teacher pay to student performance
on standardized tests, stressed that
some people still supported the
bill.

Not Lovin' it

McDonald's should alter

way it confines chickens
Seventy-two square inches.
It's an area smaller than a standard sheet of computer
paper, and it's the area McDonald's gives to its egg-laying
hens that produce the millions of eggs the multinational Mc-
Muffin goliath uses every day in its breakfasts.
Following repeated pleas from The Humane Society of the
United States to expand the number of hens raised outside of
these confined, dank cages that do not allow the birds to spread
their wings or even walk around by only 5 percent, McDonald's
wasn't "lovin' it" or any other proposal the society offered, as
the Big Mac daddy of all restaurant fame rejected the society's
pleas last week.
And it again rejected People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animal's pleas to follow in the footsteps of other fast-food gi-
ants, including Burger King, Wendy's, Hardee's, Quizno's and
Denny's, by altering the way chickens are confined and slaugh-
tered to fit a more humane model.
It might be just us, but our favorite ginger clown, besides
Bozo of course (remember his TV show in elementary school?),
seems to be looking more like Stephen King's Pennywise from
"It" than the smiling, yellow-jumpsuit-wearing, McGriddle-
devouring clown we've all been ingrained to love.
And for the company that just posted fourth quarter prof-
its of $1.2 billion in January, we don't think a 14 cent increase
per egg by making the eggs "cage-free" would break anyone's
bank.
We're not asking any of you to go out and protest under the
golden arches or immediately become a vegan, although sev-
eral of us are vegetarians and one of us is already a vegan, but
we would like you to think about those 72 inches before you
chow down on your next McMuffin.
Because the chickens sure aren't lovin' it.


Bad Apple


It always seems like such a
weird twist of fate when
a product designed with
a certain type of person in
mind is rejected by its own
target audience.
The iPad is coming close
to this scenario.
Apple's new product,
which was marketed to stu-
dents of higher education,
specifically for its portability
and ability to store e-books,
has been having some trou-
ble with certain colleges.
George Washington,
Princeton, and Cornell uni-
versities are all expressing
doubts about whether the
iPad can be accepted on
campus due to "network
compatibility issues."
George Washington Uni-
versity has even issued a
statement saying that the
iPad may not be compat-
ible with the on-campus
network until next spring.
Apple should have some se-


rious worries for its new toy,
right?
It doesn't seem so. Teresa
Brewer, an Apple spokes-
woman, said she wasn't
familiar with the schools'
problems. More than 500,000
iPads have already been
sold.
We aren't denying the
iPad is cool, the screen is
crystal-clear or that we've
wandered over to play with
the display model at Best
Buy. Still, one shouldn't be
surprised to find compat-
ibility issues in adopting a
new technology the second
it comes out because the
rest of us are still struggling
to catch up. It's OK to not
always have the new, best
thing right away.
As for UF, students have
had problems adding the
standard university e-mail to
the device as well. Perhaps
this problem doesn't just fall
to "some other university."

Column

Columnist looks back on college years


t's my final column. Fun!
OK, maybe not. People who are going through tran-
sitional times who are tasked with writing a final col-
umn usually make it sound like a graduation speech. And
as narcissistic as thinking your writing is so damn witty and
insightful and awesome enough to warrant it being shoved
into newsprint every week, it requires an even greater sense
of self-absorption to think you've got wisdom that needs to
be speechified.
Bad news? I've got a double-whammy of "transitional
times" happening: I'm turning 22 Saturday, and I'm gradu-
ating April 30.
Good news? I'm all too aware that I've got actually very
little wisdom to dispense, so there's little danger of that
happening.
Part of the reason why this whole "I'm 22, and I'm
graduating from college" thing isn't sitting well with me
is because I remember thinking that I'd have a lot more
stuff figured out by now. As it stands, I have not gotten my
crap together in any substantive way. I still get heartbroken
more easily than I'd like to admit. I'm still utterly terrified
of the future. And I still get really, immaturely excited over
things like hot cocoa at 3 a.m.
To be honest, I don't think any of that is going to change.
If, after 22 years of living with four years of college, all that
is still there, then I think I'm pretty much stuck with it.
What I can do, maybe, is put it in context: I can realize that
a broken heart means that something in my life was worth
caring deeply for, and that's worth celebrating. I can realize
that being terrified of the future is a universal experience,
and it provides a pretty compelling reason for all of us to be
there for each other when we can. And I can realize that tiny
little moments can be the most meaningful, especially when
they're shared because really, 3 a.m. hot cocoa kicks ass.
I think I was under the impression that knowledge and
experience are supposed to inure me against hurt, fear or
frustration, but that just hasn't been the case. All knowl-


S edge and experience has done for me
is help put that hurt, fear or frustra-
tion in context.
Not so that it's any less painful
or scary or frustrating, but so that, at
least for a moment, I can take a breath
Joe Dellosa and remember that things have a ten-
letters@alligator org dency to be OK.
Four years of college later, and I
thought I'd have more of this figured
out. But I think I'm alright with what I've got.
And hopefully this isn't too self-indulgent, but I will do
one graduation speech thing: a handful of thanks.
To the Alligator: Ana Goni-Lessan, an amazingly talent-
ed photographer who was the first person ever to say some-
thing kind about a column; Allie Conti, the opinions editor
when I first started writing the column; and everybody at
the Alligator copy desk who's saved me from sounding too
dumb which, believe me, is no small feat.
Thanks to my friends who have been really supportive
of this column, especially those who were totally into the
idea of hijacking the Tuesday column and turning it into
a weekly mini-essay about love and empathy. (Who needs
politics when we've got hugs?) In particular, thanks to my
awesome colleagues at 88 Advertising, and my roommate,
who's served as kind of a one-person focus group for the
past two semesters.
And, not to sound too dorky, but thanks so much to ev-
erybody who's told me they like the column. I really do ap-
preciate the Facebook messages, and it really does make me
all smiley when someone stops to say hi around campus.
It means a lot. (Also, I'm sorry for being awkward in real
life.)
It's been a lot of fun writing for you all. Thanks, every-
body.

Letters to the Editor
Christianity based on love, not hate
Just as radical Muslims give the Islamic re-
ligion a bad reputation throughout the world,
Westboro Baptist Church and other hate-
spewing Christians do the same for Christi-
anity in this town. I hope these people learn
something soon. The Christian faith is based on
the love of Jesus Christ a love that is present
to inspire those who are not believers and to
change their lives for the better if needed. The
hate-filled protests and direct condemnation
of people will only serve to turn them away
from the Christian religion. It is sad to see this
small subset of Christians garner so much at-
tention and give the religion such a bad repu-
tation. The Christian population is filled with
compassionate people who know the religion
is meant to heal, not hurt.

Reader congratulates Westboro baptist
Church counter-protesters
Bravo to the counter-protesters of the West-
boro Baptist Church protesters. A confronta-
tion such as this could have turned violent,
but Gainesville residents showed these people
how the city really feels about ignorance and
intolerance. We laugh at it. By dancing, sing-
ing and making fun of the situation, residents
let the Westboro Baptist Church members
know that their claims are so idiotic that they
do not deserve to be taken seriously. It is un-
fortunate that so much hate and discontent is
spread in the name of God, but the beauty of
our country is that they have the right to do
so in the same way others have the right to
choose their partner regardless of gender. It
boggles my mind how these people claim God
hates homosexuals. Isn't the god whom the
followers of Westboro Baptist Church speak
of the creator of everything, all-knowing and
ever-present? If so, their God created gay peo-


ple willingly and knowingly. Fortunately, the
members of our community are smart enough
to recognize a circus act when they see one,
and everybody enjoys a day at the circus.

Reader misunderstands health care bill
Alligator reader Ann Sanchez is an idiot.
First, the health care bill does not provide
blanket health care for illegal immigrants, as
they are treated much as before. Yes, some
people will pay more in taxes, but we will
pay less in health care costs as a whole due to
more preventative care. Malpractice reform
would save about $54 billion over 10 years,
which is significant but not huge considering
we spend more than $2 trillion on health care
each year. There is nothing in the bill stating
that all specialties have to be paid the same.


TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 2010 U ALLIGATOR, 7


This is not even true in the U.K., where they
have real socialized medicine. Unlike Sanchez
claims, it is not common knowledge that doc-
tors leave medical school with half a million
dollars in debt because they leave with an av-
erage of $156,000, which is still a big number,
but there are few professions where you are
guaranteed to make six figures for the rest of
your life. And finally, medical residents do not
make $30,000 per year; they usually make up-
wards of $45,000 per year 50 percent more
than $30,000, according to my rough math.
They're not living the high life, but it's not bad
considering the significant pay raise at the end
of their 3- to 7-year residency. It's OK to have
opinions and to print those opinions, but it's
just a waste of ink if the people expressing
those views refuse to read books or use the In-
ternet, and instead they base their elementary
opinions on e-mails forwarded by grandma.

Others have signed the bill


FARM, from page 1
"We seek to serve as a role
model to other companies and
suppliers on how to maintain
a great place to work," Stevens
wrote. "Each store carries more
than 35,000 different products.
Tomatoes are a small part of the
product mix."
Stevens wrote that the price of
tomatoes is set by the grower or
packer, not Publix.
He attributed the problems in
the tomato industry to a lack of
laws enforcing minimum wages
and safe working conditions.
Other companies, including
UF's food provider, Aramark,
have signed an agreement with
the CIW, said Richard Blake, a UF
sophomore and a Student/Farm-
worker Alliance member.
"Aramark dragged their feet,
but at least they were willing to
meet with us," Blake said. "Publix


seems to be a little different."
UF political science junior Di-
ana Moreno, who is also a mem-
ber of the UF Student/Farmwork-
er Alliance, said she marched in
support not only of tomato pick-
ers but also of a human rights
campaign.
"I think people really need to

is farmworkers," Moreno said.

Activism from [tomato pick-

From here on out, Moreno said,
the CIW's campaign will only es-

"We're probably going to send
letters and maybe start boycott
campaigns to pressure Publix,"
she said. "The CIW is going to
build a coalition throughout the
southeastern part of the U.S."


Pissed about Parking
Students from the Social Problems class, SYG 2010, protested parking problems at UF during
a march Monday afternoon from Turlington Plaza to t Plaza of the Americas. About 30 students
joined the march, an optional class assignment that served as a way for students to show their
dislike for the high costs associated with parking mishaps.
"We basically want to alleviate the main parking problems: ticketing, booting and impoundment,"
said Shelby Webb, a sophomore.

Uncharacteristic defensive mistakes cost Gators


Florida will host FlU today


By GREG LUCA
Alligator Writer

For the past two weeks, the
Gators have been playing with
fire.
Saturday they finally got
burned.
After executing almost flaw-
lessly in the field early in the
season, the Gators' defense has
seemingly fallen apart over the
last 14 games, culminating in a
loss to Kentucky.
The No. 3 Gators (34-5, 14-3
Southeastern Conference) will
need to get their fielding is-
sues straightened out if they
want to survive today's double-
header with FIU (29-15, 11-5 Sun
Belt Conference) at 4 p.m. in
Gainesville, and the remainder
of the rigorous conference sched-
ule.
Florida committed only 10 er-
rors in the team's first 23 games,
a number that had it leading the
nation in fielding percentage.
But from there, UF made er-
rors in 13 of it's next 15 games,
committing a total of 23 in that
span.
While the Gators were able
to use their dominant offense
and some timely pitching to pull
out wins in the majority of those
games, the defensive mishaps
caught up with them in Satur-
day's nightcap against Kentucky,


when they lost 5-3.
Were it an error-free game,
Florida would have come away
with a 3-2 win.
But the Wildcats were able to
score a run in the second and two
more in the fourth on a pair of
fielding mishaps by UF, leading
to their 5-3 victory.
"We're working hard but just
not playing good defense," UF
coach Tim Walton said after the
game. "We don't strike out very
many batters so we put a lot of
pressure on the defense so we
gotta play better."
Last year, UF's fielders were
aided greatly by the presence of
Stacey Nelson, who struck out
8.76 batters per seven innings.

"We're working hard but
just not playing good de-
fense."
Tim Walton
UF softball coach

But this year, the onus is on
the fielders to produce the ma-
jority of the outs, as Stephanie
Brombacher is striking out 7.85
batters per seven innings, while
Ensley Gammel is striking out
just 4.58 per seven innings.
"I've never really felt more
helpless than I did today," Wal-
ton said after a weekend series
against Arkansas in which the


Gators committed five errors.
"We weren't very sharp on de-
fense the whole weekend, and I
felt bad more for Stephanie be-
cause she made good pitches but
we just gave away outs."
While the recent defensive
struggles have been a team ef-
fort, the shortstop spot deserves
the brunt of the blame.
The rotation of freshman Brit-
tany Walker and junior Megan
Bush at the position has been
responsible for 14 errors this sea-
son, which amounts to 42 percent
of the team's total.
Walker, who leads the team
with nine errors, has taken the
majority of the reps at the posi-
tion this year but could be re-
placed by Bush at a moment's
notice.
"How much patience I have
for Brittany Walker probably de-
pends on how much patience she
has in herself," Walton said. "She
puts a lot of pressure on herself.
It's not easy to play shortstop on
a veteran team that has high ex-
pectations, especially for a kid
who really hasn't played at this
level."
The only thing Walton knows
for sure is that things will have to
improve if the Gators are to make
a deep run in the NCAA Tourna-
ment.
"Defense wins champion-
ships," Walton said. "The offense
and all that kinda stuff is all
good, but defense wins champi-
onships."

those who think they know humor better than I do (Yes,
those groups have near identical memberships).
You'll also notice three phrases in italics throughout this
column. These have somehow become part of my persona,
and yes, I realize they pretty much make no sense
See, if you've never met me in person, my friends like to
tease that I hate to have fun.
And I'll admit I'm a pretty conservative guy, usually
not one to push my boundaries.
I have at times decided to make choices in hopes of a
decent night's sleep and an acceptable test grade or avoid-
ed pranks that seem more like the actions of fifth-graders.
Sometimes, I take things too seriously and act like a
40-year-old. But hey, if they didn't care, they wouldn't
tease, right?
And in the end, making a difference in people's lives is
all I've ever wanted. It is one of my core mottos mak-
ing the lives of those around me better because they knew
me.
Listen, I could get all serious and sappy, but that would
probably cause even the five of you who have made it this
far to stop.
Most of us have experienced tragedies or been close to
someone who has.
I don't need to describe how I've almost lost the two
most important people in my life. Just do yourself a favor
and live every day to the fullest.
And with that, I tip my cap to all my readers. Thanks for
coming along for the journey. If I made you love me or hate
me just once for even a few seconds, then I did my job.
Keep it real, Gainesville.

anthem. She saw the stadium that
would be at capacity less than four
minutes after faceoff, she saw the
faces of supporters, and she saw
her dream come true.
O'Leary, UF's lacrosse coach,
dreamt of building a top-notch
women's program in Gainesville.
She worked with UF athletics di-
rector Jeremy Foley to get funding,
to create a facility and to gather
staff and players who were com-
mitted to her dream. When all that
was done, O'Leary stood in awe of
the turnout at UF's inaugural game
against Jacksonville.
The field was surrounded by
2,114 people who flocked to Don-
ald R. Dizney Stadium on Feb.
20 to see a team, unproven at the
Division-I level, win its inaugural
game 16-6 over the Dolphins.
Since that record-setting game,
UF has put together a solid sea-
son for a first-year program as it
garnered eight more victories and
dropped six matches. Its resume in-
cludes wins over then-No.14 Penn
State and No.17 New Hampshire,
and the Gators even jumped into
the top-20 rankings for a week.
The team put up statistics that
some more experienced teams
would trade for, and it shocked
some doubters when its core of 24
freshmen, two sophomores, one
junior and two seniors matured
in a matter of months, dealt with
adversity and played like they had
years of D-I experience under their
belts.
"I think the players have
learned a great deal, and that's
been our philosophy," O'Leary
said. "If we can go out each day
and get better, then we can really
count the season as a success, and


I think we had some real successes
this season."

Young guns
With only five non-freshmen on
the roster, who combined for six
starts this season all by Rachael
Zimmerman before her season-
ending injury the Gators were
going to need big seasons from the
freshmen.
The athletes O'Leary gathered
knew the high expectations that
were set at Florida when they
chose to come to Gainesville to
take on the challenge.
So far, it's worked out just fine.
The freshmen flourished this
season, padding the stat sheets and
some even gaining national recog-
nition along the way.
At the helm of the march for
freshmen dominance was Ashley
Bruns.
Bruns, a 5-foot-2-inch attacker
from Ellicott City, Md., put the
first marks in UF lacrosse's history
book with four scores and four as-
sists in the first game, and has con-
tinued adding to it.
Bruns leads the Gators with 44
goals and 30 assists. She is cur-
rently third in the nation with 74
overall points and she was named
American Lacrosse Conference
Rookie of the Week three times
this season.
The freshman also was dubbed
WomensLacrosse.com and Wom-
ensLax.com Rookie of the Week on
March 23.
"It feels great," Bruns said, "but
it's not the first thing on my mind
every day."
In addition to Bruns, defender
Sam Farrell was named the Ameri-
can Lacrosse Conference Defensive
Player of the Week on April 6, and
Brittany Dashiell shared Rookie of
the Week honors on March 9.
"We did an amazing job," Bruns
said. "We showed that we can play
with the top players the seniors,
the juniors, the sophomores who


have been doing this for years.
We surprised a lot of people, just
knowing that Florida is not a team
you just walk over."

Injuries and Inconsistencies
Freshman attacker Amanda
Wedekind, defender Rachel Smith
and midfielder Hayley Katzenberg-
er began the season on the sideline
after suffering season-ending inju-
ries last summer and fall.
The losses forced UF to con-
stantly adjust its lineup as it sought
to find the right mix of players
each game.
When O'Leary thought she had
found the right system, a midfield
substitution for offense and de-
fense, more injuries struck.
Zimmerman went down with
a torn ACL during a pre-game
warm-up before the game against
New Hampshire, and Julie Schin-
del suffered a wrist injury in prac-
tice the day before the Oregon
game.
O'Leary said she had to ask the
team to make changes with little
preparation before the games.
"It was really hard, but this
team made the adjustments," she
said. "They were accountable for
those game-day adjustments and
they worked through them, so
I give them all the credit in the
world."
In addition to the injuries the
Gators battled, there were bouts of
inconsistency throughout the sea-
son. They won the first two games,
but lost the third. They then re-
grouped and got another win, but
that was followed by two losses.
They won three more then lost
one. The trend continued as they
had another three-game winning
streak, which was followed by two
losses.
The mental turmoil that came
with doing everything right and
being on top one week, but then
making mistakes and being down
the next week forced the athletes to

draw inspiration from each other.
"It was really important to
look at each other for a pump-up
speech or look at each other for
smiles when we won," goalie Cara
Canington said. "The team and the
coaches (stuck) together and (took)
those emotions whether happy
or bad together."
O'Leary recalled her husband's
frighteningly accurate preseason
prediction about the ups and
downs she would face this season.
"When we went into the year,
my husband was telling me,
'You're going to catch a team that
you probably shouldn't beat, and
then you are going to get beat by a
team you shouldn't get beat by,'"
O'Leary said.
UF beat No. 14 Penn State but
then fell to an unranked Colgate
the following weekend.

Chemistry
The common bonds the play-
ers share, being young and being
a part of the inaugural team, have
translated to more than just suc-
cess on the field.
Florida's staff decided to take a
more compassionate approach to
coaching, as opposed to the heavy-
handed method usually associated
with training a team of adults.
If you walk into the facility be-
fore practice, the atmosphere is
more of a family coming together
for a reunion. Players and coaches
arrive, greet each other and talk
about their day from how they
feel to how their classes went.
"They just work so hard (that)
you probably don't even need to
yell at them half the time because
they are so hard on themselves,"
O'Leary said. "We spend so much
time together that you want to
make it a family environment,
because most of them live so far
away, and their parents are flights
away.
You want them to feel that they
are part of a family and that people
care about them."


The players have jelled and of-
ten attribute their success to their
close relationships. Canington said
playing with her teammates is like
having 20-plus best friends, and
that they manage to keep their re-
lationships drama-free.
The memories she said she'll
take from the season are those of
camaraderie. Bus rides were pri-
vate parties, with music and danc-
ing, and being greeted in airports
with the "Gator Chomp" high-
lighted her year.

Bright future
Florida's young squad proved
it has the talent to play at the Di-
vision-I level, and the players are
looking forward to what UF will be
able to do next season, after having
gotten acquainted with each other
this year.
"This year is all about finding
out what works for different play-
ers, and how to communicate and
work well with different players,"
Bruns said. "Next year, we're go-
ing to know, and we're going to
come out with fire."
Florida has already had five
midfield signees for its second
season Anna DeGiovanni from
Flemington, N.J., Kelsey Dlugos
from Commack, N.Y., Elizabeth
Dunwoody from Oak Hill, Va.,
Krista Grabher from Fort Pierce
and Courtney Hoyes from Silver
Spring, Md.
The future, for UF, has countless
possibilities, but before it focuses
on avenging losses and improv-
ing for next season, the team will
prepare for its final regular-season
game and toughest test against the
five-time defending champions
Northwestern on May 2.
"If we win, it's going to make
the season a hundred times better,
because they have won the nation-
al championship five years," mid-
fielder Jamie Reeg said. "If we lose,
I don't think it's going to change
anything as long as we play really
well together."
