to the Aguilar family her 19-year-old son attends college in Oklahoma. Joyner said she doesnt usually follow missing person stories, but the Aguilar case was different. This one really spoke to me personally, she said. The search party has a Facebook group now about 14,000 members strong and with each old picture of Aguilar they post, his personality seems to shine through the screen, touching people like 28-year-old Alisha King. You feel like you missed out on somebody because he was someone who you really wanted to know, she said. The vigil was one of three simultaneous gatherings scheduled for Thursday. Angela LaPiana, a 19-year-old political science senior, said about 200 people attended the vigil in Doral. A third was held with Aguilars extended family in Cali, Colombia. Back in Gainesville, a supporter taped an Iron Man picture onto the wall, a tribute to Aguilars favorite superhero, LaPiana said. Hes been able to touch so many lives, she said. Hes not a superhero, but a super human being.

The event is about raising awarenessBobby Brito signed 5 years out and proud on the door. The 19-yearold political science sophomore said because his family was accepting. Its a huge weight lifted off your shoulders, he said. Jessie Pincus, who is the director of Pride Awareness Month, said the day is about awareness. Its not necessarily a day to come out, but celebrating those who have come out and those who will come out, and our allies that support us, said the 22-year-old advertising senior. Pincus came out freshman year but said she was nervous because she is a member of Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority. But everybody responded positively, she said.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterFeeling the moons gravitational pull or bonds between water molecules is now within grasp liter ally. By combining haptics and nanotechnology, the Digital Worlds Institute in collaboration with Curtis Taylor, a UF professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and a nanotechnology expert, has made it possible for people to feel these reactions. The project, called HAPNAN, was showcased Thursday night at the Harn Museums Art in Engineering event. Haptics refers to the ability to feel a force or texture in a virtual environment, according to an email from James Oliverio, director of the Digital Worlds Institute. Nanotechnology refers to research, development and manufacturing activity with matter and processes that are too small for the eye to see, he said. Oliverio said he, Taylor and Digital Worlds graduate students worked on the project and hope to use the technology to enhance learning in middle school classrooms. Oliverio likened HAPNAN to a serious video game. For example, students can use the mouse to pull a cowbell-shaped object off the moons surface and then pull the same object off the Earths surface, in order to compare the planets gravitational pulls. Patrick Terry, a 20-year-old materials science and engineering junior, said he thinks the technology has potential to help students make sense of ideas he learned from textbooks. get people to understand things is always great, Terry said. I can tial to be a helpful medium to learn those concepts. Oliverio said the project will initially be implemented in local schools, but because the National Science Foundation funded the prototype development, HAPNAN should eventually make a national impact. Humans can often learn more in a multimodal context than a single mode like reading alone, Oliverio said. When more than one sense is involved in the acquisition of knowledge, we can learn more deeply. UF professors project allows people to feel the moons pull Patrick Terry Jessie Pincus

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorGator Corner: How about some news?A restaurant is a place to eat; a university cafeteria is something more. Gator Corner Dining Center can be compared to the taverns of the revolutionary period, where and news was spread. Unfortunately, managers take for granted what they decide to put on the eight TV sets that are the focus of the main dining areas. Often, every TV will be set to a sports channel, or worse, ESPNs SportsCenter. College students need news! In less than a month, students will elect the next United States president. Gator Corner, a university institution, should do its best to support a politically conscious Student Body. Upcoming election aside, students should always be encouraged to keep up on current issues, both domestic and foreign. The news inspires thoughtful conversation. Its easier to talk about the news than it is to talk about The Dressfollowing the news cannot be disputed, so I wont keep on about it. I would rather stress the fact that college students are all about convenience. Newspaper racks around campus provide free issues of The New York Times and the Alligator. When the papers run out early in the morning, theres no more convenient access to news. Busy college students dont have time to search for news. I would greatly appreciate it if I could walk into Gator Corner and kill two birds with one stone my appetite and Anderson Cooper. Once I gave the manager the old compliment sandwich; Hi, the food here is great. I just think you should put the news on. The service here is good, too. For a short time, Gator Corner had CNN on one TV, and people appreciated it. Then, things went back to SportsCenter. To the managers of Gator Corner, please be conscious of your institutions role as a political center at UF. Put the news on. And I like the food. Jonathan Josephs UF student Our generation has some amazing potential. We have tools that our parents and grandparents could only dream of, and groundbreaking technology ing out one after another. This is all grand but there is a catch. The current generation may not have the social skills to create a connected, interwoven society. We have many options to take the easy way out in communication, which eliminates the need for face-to-face conversations. Email has replaced the need to make phone calls. There is no need to dial a number when an individual can answer at their own convenience via the Internet. If an immediate response is required, text messaging is the perfect solution, as many people today always have their cellphone in hand. However, these methods eliminate the personal touch that may play a key factor in getting a message across. Penmanship of all forms will be lost within a decade. There will no longer be a need or demand for cursive, print or any handwriting because all messages will be typed on a keyboard or audio recorded. There is no telling if children will know how to address an envelope in years to come. Bills can be paid online, and more families are opting for e-Christmas cards, so it seems that stamps are quickly fading out of fashion. Crossing campus, it is hard to spot a student not using his or her cellphone, whether texting or talking. In class, students sit with laptops open, but not with Word documents up and lecture halls. Hours in class are not well spent on social media networks. many students still opt to browse through them at the expense of missing information given in class. Whatever happened to living in the moment? In the world of technology, the here and now may not exist. Constantly checking the latest news feed and tweets doesnt count. And neither does texting; although it may be instantaneous, it still doesnt have the here factor. On a college campus, we live in a bubble. This is not the same type of bubble that sheltered children exist in, but rather one where the only news and information we care to know about is what is happening within a three-mile radius. Social media has only expanded this bubble into a virtual theyve accepted your request. It is no ones fault that the world is continuing to evolve just as it has always done. Traditions and customs in societies change, but it is a shame that people will not have the same level of social connectedness in years to come. Daily interactions can be avoided with online classes and other outlets, as we now can avoid having to immerse ourselves in seas of people. As long as we use these tools for the good that they were created instead of distractions from boredom, studying or awkward social encounters, it is perfectly acceptable to invite the latest technology into our lives. Young people constantly think that we are too busy to use traditional methods of communication. Frantically running from one thing to the next, I am not excluding myself from this generalization. There are always just a few too many reasons why we are unable to hold meaningful conversations with our neighbors or reach beyond a text to talk to a friend. Technology is progressing faster than most can keep up, and society is inevitably changing. As our world continues to progress, make eye contact, remember strong handshakes and continue adhering to social guidelines. Abby Wolz is a health science freshman at UF.

The junior safety won SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Week honors after his seventackle performance against LSU. He said he makes a conscious effort to ensure his effort rubs off on his teammates. I always tell my team, I give it all for them, Elam said following the win against LSU. I did what I had to do for us to be victorious.  Everybody on defense, all the backups, us starters, we all gave good effort and [were] victorious. Quinn said Elam is not alone in bringing a strong attitude to the defense. We certainly count on some energy from Dominique Easley, Quinn said. Hes one that provides a lot of toughthat kind of attitude for us. I think Lerentee McCray is certainly one of those guys. The defenders will have to exert their newfound toughness against Vanderbilts passing attack. The Gators narrowly escaped an upset against the Commodores in The Swamp last year with a 26-21 win. Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rogers threw for 297 yards, and wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught nine passes for 170 yards. Sophomore Chris Boyd is second to Matthews on the team in receiving yards this season. The duo has combined for 53 catches and 854 yards. Watkins says the wideout tandem will be a good challenge for the UF secondary. Theyve got two great receivers that we played against last year that gave us a little bit of trouble, Watkins said. Last year, the pass defense struggled. Were looking at it as another challenge weve got to take care of this week. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. defenseDEFENSE, from page 13

Of the four goals she did surrender, only two came when the game was tied, and none were allowed when the Gators were losing. maining before the SEC tournament, the Gators control their own future in the chase for the regular-season crown. To win the title, Florida will need to defeat its major competitor in the SEC East, the Tigers. The key to beating Missouri is in Floridas goal, and Burkes teammates thinks shes up to the task. Said senior Holly King: Taylors a stud. TAYLOR GAINESAlligator Writer Midterms are just around the corner, but Agata Strausa and the Florida cross country team are preparing for a different kind of examination. Its kind of a test the last test in a way, and also were at, Strausa said. Both the men and women time this season as they head to Pre-Nationals in Louisville, Ky., on Saturday. UF has opened the season with three consecutive sented a feeling-out process, as coach Paul Spangler nar rowed the team to a traveling squad. On the mens side, Phil Duncan picked up an individual victory at the Saint Leo Invitational, clinching spot. The race for the last spot on the womens side is still up in the air. The women will have eight runners compete at Pre-Nationals to try to sort out the roster. Weve got a good problem right now, in that, we dont know who our No. 1 runner is, Spangler said. We dont even know who our top seven are. Every day it seems like in practice, somebody steps up and really has a breakthrough workout. Its a good problem to have. At the same time, the race will mark the Gators test. Flor ida faces nine opponents ranked in the top 30 on the mens side and eight top-30 teams on the womens side. Pre-Nationals will be the month for UFs top runners. We havent really been able to race all-out, junior Mark Parrish said. So thats a nice change of pace. Were just going to get cut loose and go run as hard as [we] can. The weekend will also serve as a preview of the course the NCAA Championship meet is run on. If the national meet, seeing the course in advance will provide an advantage. If you can see yourself out there running that Nationals course, its going to be a lot easier to work towards that goal, Parrish said. Once everyone realizes like, Hey, we can get out here, this is what it looks like, everyones going to work really hard to get back there and make Nationals.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012 John W. McLaughlin III / Alligator Senior middle blocker Betsy Smith attempts to spike the ball over the net during Floridas 3-0 victory against Missouri on Sept. 21 at the OConnell Center. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer The No. 11 Gators are atop the Southeastern Conference at the midway point of the regular season partly because the communication on the court has improved from previous years, Betsy Smith said. The redshirt senior said her conversations before points with fellow middle blocker Chloe Mann have helped Florida (13-2, 7-0 SEC), which faces Ole Miss (8-8, 2-5 SEC) on Friday at 7 p.m. in the OConnell Center. This is one of the better years because the middle group has been through the program for the longest amount of time, Smith said. There just has to be a lot of communication. Make sure everyone is clicking on the same cylinders so we can defend the best we can. Coach Mary Wise said she depends on both Smith and Mann to point out the opponents strategies just before the ball is put in play. Theyre reminding the young players, who need reminding, just whos in the front row, what rotation theyre in, what are the tendencies in this rotation and what were going to do defensively, Wise said. Its actually kind of going through page by page of the scouting report, just in a real condensed form. hitters and a transfer setter, Smith said effective communication has never been more important than it is now. Back when All-Amer icans Kristy Jaeckel and Kelly Murphy were on the outside, communication was not as critical. Jaeckel was a great blocker on that pin, so we didnt have to remind her; she knew what she was doing, Smith said. But these times, its just the constant reminder. Throughout a match, Mann will point out help her teammates remember what to expect. Mann said there has been confusion in previous years with the younger players, which is why communication is critical to Floridas success. We work really hard in it every day in our gym, making sure that were talking to each other, Mann said. That makes sure that no player gets kind of fallen behind. Whether youre a freshman or a senior, everyones on the same page.UF veterans vital to communication UF Volleyball WOMENS GolOLF CHARLES KINGSBURYAlligator Writer Through two tournaments, Floridas Emily Bastel has lived up to the hype. The Gators womens golf coach, described as a diamond in the rough by athletics director Jeremy Foley, has not disappointed. the air, senior Isabelle Lendl said. She isnt a diva, and shes not going to pretend that she has never hit a bad shot. Shes a very good listener and communicator. In the wake of Jan Dowlings resignation, Bastel has achieved a slew of notable results. Three weeks removed from their season-opening win at the Cougar Classic in Charleston, S.C., the Gators have vaulted to No. 2 in the most recent World/WGCA Coaches Poll, a seven-spot jump. to be able to make the decisions for the team and do what you think is best for the team and to build those relationships with the girls, Bastel said. During her time as a player at Michigan State, Bastels competitive nature fueled her success. She was a four-time All-Big Ten selection and earned All-America honors in 2002. Bastel also played on the LPGA Tour from 2005-06 and in 2008, experienclevel of focus needed to consistently compete at a high level. There is really no substitute for that competitive golf experience, and that translates into being able to speak to my players and lending my credibility, Bastel said. When theyre on the golf course dealing with various emotions of being a player and what it takes, those are the things I can really relate to them on. Bastel has taken a methodical approach on the fairways this season. Florida continues to make steady improvements with each tournament. When we went into the Cougar Classic we wanted to do a good job of worrying about our selves, playing our own game, staying in the present and playing one shot at a time, Bastel said. That was our philosophy then and it worked, so I think we are going to stick to that game plan throughout the whole year. The Gators have just two tour naments remaining in the fall and will take the course today for the Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C. The tournament is set to run through Sunday.Bastel

to the Aguilar family her 19-year-old son attends college in Oklahoma. Joyner said she doesnt usually follow missing person stories, but the Aguilar case was different. This one really spoke to me personally, she said. The search party has a Facebook group now about 14,000 members strong and with each old picture of Aguilar they post, his personality seems to shine through the screen, touching people like 28-year-old Alisha King. You feel like you missed out on somebody because he was someone who you really wanted to know, she said. The vigil was one of three simultaneous gather ings scheduled for Thursday. Angela LaPiana, a 19-year-old political science senior, said about 200 people attended the vigil in Doral. A third was held with Aguilars extended family in Cali, Colombia. Back in Gainesville, a supporter taped an Iron Man picture onto the wall, a tribute to Aguilars favorite superhero, LaPiana said. Hes been able to touch so many lives, she said. Hes not a superhero, but a super human being.

KATHRYN VARNAlligator Contributing WriterFeeling the moons gravitational pull or bonds between water molecules is now within grasp liter ally. By combining haptics and nanotechnology, the Digital Worlds Institute in collaboration with Curtis Taylor, a UF professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and a nanotechnology expert, has made it possible for people to feel these reactions. The project, called HAPNAN, was showcased Thursday night at the Harn Museums Art in Engineering event. Haptics refers to the ability to feel a force or texture in a virtual environment, according to an email from James Oliverio, director of the Digital Worlds Institute. Nanotechnology refers to research, development and manufacturing activity with matter and processes that are too small for the eye to see, he said. Oliverio said he, Taylor and Digital Worlds graduate students worked on the project and hope to use the technology to enhance learning in middle school classrooms. Oliverio likened HAPNAN to a serious video game. For example, students can use the mouse to pull a cowbell-shaped object off the moons surface and then pull the same object off the Earths surface, in order to compare the planets gravitational pulls. Patrick Terry, a 20-year-old materials science and engineering junior, said he thinks the technology has potential to help students make sense of ideas he learned from textbooks. get people to understand things is always great, Terry said. I can tial to be a helpful medium to learn those concepts. Oliverio said the project will initially be implemented in local schools, but because the National Science Foundation funded the prototype development, HAPNAN should eventually make a national impact. Humans can often learn more in a multimodal context than a single mode like reading alone, Oliverio said. When more than one sense is involved in the acquisition of knowledge, we can learn more deeply. UF professors project allows people to feel the moons pull Patrick Terry Jessie Pincus

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012 ALLIGATOR, 7Letter to the EditorGator Corner: How about some news?A restaurant is a place to eat; a university cafeteria is something more. Gator Corner Dining Center can be compared to the taverns of the revolutionary period, where and news was spread. Unfortunately, managers take for granted what they decide to put on the eight TV sets that are the focus of the main dining areas. Often, every TV will be set to a sports channel, or worse, ESPNs SportsCenter. College students need news! In less than a month, students will elect the next United States president. Gator Corner, a university institution, should do its best to support a politically conscious Student Body. Upcoming election aside, students should always be encouraged to keep up on current issues, both domestic and foreign. The news inspires thoughtful conversation. Its easier to talk about the news than it is to talk about The Dressfollowing the news cannot be disputed, so I wont keep on about it. I would rather stress the fact that college students are all about convenience. Newspaper racks around campus provide free issues of The New York Times and the Alligator. When the papers run out early in the morning, theres no more convenient access to news. Busy college students dont have time to search for news. I would greatly appreciate it if I could walk into Gator Corner and kill two birds with one stone my appetite and Anderson Cooper. Once I gave the manager the old compliment sandwich; Hi, the food here is great. I just think you should put the news on. The service here is good, too. For a short time, Gator Corner had CNN on one TV, and people appreciated it. Then, things went back to SportsCenter. To the managers of Gator Corner, please be conscious of your institutions role as a political center at UF. Put the news on. And I like the food. Jonathan Josephs UF student Our generation has some amazing potential. We have tools that our parents and grandparents could only dream of, and groundbreaking technology ing out one after another. This is all grand but there is a catch. The current generation may not have the social skills to create a connected, interwoven society. We have many options to take the easy way out in communication, which eliminates the need for face-to-face conversations. Email has replaced the need to make phone calls. There is no need to dial a number when an individual can answer at their own convenience via the Internet. If an immediate response is required, text messaging is the perfect solution, as many people today always have their cellphone in hand. However, these methods eliminate the personal touch that may play a key factor in getting a message across. Penmanship of all forms will be lost within a decade. There will no longer be a need or demand for cursive, print or any handwriting because all messages will be typed on a keyboard or audio recorded. There is no telling if children will know how to address an envelope in years to come. Bills can be paid online, and more families are opting for e-Christmas cards, so it seems that stamps are quickly fading out of fashion. Crossing campus, it is hard to spot a student not using his or her cellphone, whether texting or talking. In class, students sit with laptops open, but not with Word documents up and lecture halls. Hours in class are not well spent on social media networks. many students still opt to browse through them at the expense of missing information given in class. Whatever happened to living in the moment? In the world of technology, the here and now may not exist. Constantly checking the latest news feed and tweets doesnt count. And neither does texting; although it may be instantaneous, it still doesnt have the here factor. On a college campus, we live in a bubble. This is not the same type of bubble that sheltered children exist in, but rather one where the only news and information we care to know about is what is happening within a three-mile radius. Social media has only expanded this bubble into a virtual theyve accepted your request. It is no ones fault that the world is continuing to evolve just as it has always done. Traditions and customs in societies change, but it is a shame that people will not have the same level of social connectedness in years to come. Daily interactions can be avoided with online classes and other outlets, as we now can avoid having to immerse ourselves in seas of people. As long as we use these tools for the good that they were created instead of distractions from boredom, studying or awkward social encounters, it is perfectly acceptable to invite the latest technology into our lives. Young people constantly think that we are too busy to use traditional methods of communication. Frantically running from one thing to the next, I am not excluding myself from this generalization. There are always just a few too many reasons why we are unable to hold meaningful conversations with our neighbors or reach beyond a text to talk to a friend. Technology is progressing faster than most can keep up, and society is inevitably changing. As our world continues to progress, make eye contact, remember strong handshakes and continue adhering to social guidelines. Abby Wolz is a health science freshman at UF.

The junior safety won SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Week honors after his seventackle performance against LSU. He said he makes a conscious effort to ensure his effort rubs off on his teammates. I always tell my team, I give it all for them, Elam said following the win against LSU. I did what I had to do for us to be victorious. Everybody on defense, all the backups, us starters, we all gave good effort and [were] victorious. Quinn said Elam is not alone in bringing a strong attitude to the defense. We certainly count on some energy from Dominique Easley, Quinn said. Hes one that provides a lot of toughthat kind of attitude for us. I think Lerentee McCray is cer tainly one of those guys. The defenders will have to exert their newfound toughness against Vanderbilts passing attack. The Gators narrowly escaped an upset against the Commodores in The Swamp last year with a 26-21 win. Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rogers threw for 297 yards, and wide receiver Jordan Matthews caught nine passes for 170 yards. Sophomore Chris Boyd is second to Matthews on the team in receiving yards this season. The duo has combined for 53 catches and 854 yards. Watkins says the wideout tandem will be a good challenge for the UF secondary. Theyve got two great receivers that we played against last year that gave us a little bit of trouble, Watkins said. Last year, the pass defense struggled. Were looking at it as another challenge weve got to take care of this week. Contact Josh Jurnovoy at jjurnovoy@alligator.org. DEFENSE, from page 13

Youll get through this. Burke has been a major part of Floridas cur rent seven-game winning streak. In those seven games, she held opponents to a goals against average of only .571. Of the four goals she did surrender, only two came when the game was tied, and none were allowed when the Gators were losing. maining before the SEC tournament, the Gators control their own future in the chase for the regular-season crown. To win the title, Florida will need to defeat its major competitor in the SEC East, the Tigers. The key to beating Missouri is in Floridas goal, and Burkes teammates thinks shes up to the task. Said senior Holly King: Taylors a stud. TAYLOR GAINESAlligator Writer Midterms are just around the corner, but Agata Strausa and the Florida cross country team are preparing for a different kind of examination. Its kind of a test the last test in a way, and also were at, Strausa said. Both the men and women time this season as they head to Pre-Nationals in Louisville, Ky., on Saturday. UF has opened the season with three consecutive sented a feeling-out process, as coach Paul Spangler nar rowed the team to a traveling squad. On the mens side, Phil Duncan picked up an individual victory at the Saint Leo Invitational, clinching spot. The race for the last spot on the womens side is still up in the air. The women will have eight runners compete at Pre-Nationals to try to sort out the roster. Weve got a good problem right now, in that, we dont know who our No. 1 runner is, Spangler said. We dont even know who our top seven are. Every day it seems like in practice, somebody steps up and really has a breakthrough workout. Its a good problem to have. At the same time, the race will mark the Gators test. Flor ida faces nine opponents ranked in the top 30 on the mens side and eight top-30 teams on the womens side. Pre-Nationals will be the month for UFs top runners. We havent really been able to race all-out, junior Mark Parrish said. So thats a nice change of pace. Were just going to get cut loose and go run as hard as [we] can. The weekend will also serve as a preview of the course the NCAA Championship meet is run on. If the national meet, seeing the course in advance will provide an advantage. If you can see yourself out there running that Nationals course, its going to be a lot easier to work towards that goal, Parrish said. Once everyone realizes like, Hey, we can get out here, this is what it looks like, everyones going to work really hard to get back there and make Nationals.

16, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2012 John W. McLaughlin III / Alligator Senior middle blocker Betsy Smith attempts to spike the ball over the net during Floridas 3-0 victory against Missouri on Sept. 21 at the OConnell Center. JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer The No. 11 Gators are atop the Southeastern Conference at the midway point of the regular season partly because the communication on the court has improved from previous years, Betsy Smith said. The redshirt senior said her conversations before points with fellow middle blocker Chloe Mann have helped Florida (13-2, 7-0 SEC), which faces Ole Miss (8-8, 2-5 SEC) on Friday at 7 p.m. in the OConnell Center. This is one of the better years because the middle group has been through the program for the longest amount of time, Smith said. There just has to be a lot of communication. Make sure everyone is clicking on the same cylinders so we can defend the best we can. Coach Mary Wise said she depends on both Smith and Mann to point out the opponents strategies just before the ball is put in play. Theyre reminding the young players, who need reminding, just whos in the front row, what rotation theyre in, what are the tendencies in this rotation and what were going to do defensively, Wise said. Its actually kind of going through page by page of the scouting report, just in a real condensed form. hitters and a transfer setter, Smith said effective communication has never been more important than it is now. Back when All-Amer icans Kristy Jaeckel and Kelly Murphy were on the outside, communication was not as critical. Jaeckel was a great blocker on that pin, so we didnt have to remind her; she knew what she was doing, Smith said. But these times, its just the constant reminder. Throughout a match, Mann will point out help her teammates remember what to expect. Mann said there has been confusion in previous years with the younger players, which is why communication is critical to Floridas success. We work really hard in it every day in our gym, making sure that were talking to each other, Mann said. That makes sure that no player gets kind of fallen behind. Whether youre a freshman or a senior, everyones on the same page.UF veterans vital to communication UF V olle yball WOMENS GOLF CHARLES KINGSBURYAlligator Writer Through two tournaments, Floridas Emily Bastel has lived up to the hype. The Gators womens golf coach, described as a diamond in the rough by athletics director Jeremy Foley, has not disappointed. the air, senior Isabelle Lendl said. She isnt a diva, and shes not going to pretend that she has never hit a bad shot. Shes a very good listener and communicator. In the wake of Jan Dowlings resignation, Bastel has achieved a slew of notable results. Three weeks removed from their season-opening win at the Cougar Classic in Charleston, S.C., the Gators have vaulted to No. 2 in the most recent World/WGCA Coaches Poll, a seven-spot jump. to be able to make the decisions for the team and do what you think is best for the team and to build those relationships with the girls, Bastel said. During her time as a player at Michigan State, Bastels competitive nature fueled her success. She was a four-time All-Big Ten selection and earned All-America honors in 2002. Bastel also played on the LPGA Tour from 2005-06 and in 2008, experienclevel of focus needed to consistently compete at a high level. There is really no substitute for that competitive golf experience, and that translates into being able to speak to my players and lending my credibility, Bastel said. When theyre on the golf course dealing with various emotions of being a player and what it takes, those are the things I can really relate to them on. Bastel has taken a methodical approach on the fairways this season. Florida continues to make steady improvements with each tournament. When we went into the Cougar Classic we wanted to do a good job of worrying about our selves, playing our own game, staying in the present and playing one shot at a time, Bastel said. That was our philosophy then and it worked, so I think we are going to stick to that game plan throughout the whole year. The Gators have just two tour naments remaining in the fall and will take the course today for the Tar Heel Invitational in Chapel Hill, N.C. The tournament is set to run through Sunday.Bastel
