Kelly Logan / Alligator StaffSupporters of Gainesville Regional Utilities and Gainesville Renewable Energy Center hold signs outside City Hall on Wednesday evening. The group was advocating for the new biomass energy plant that is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2013. UF IS NOT IMPLEMENTING THE CONCEPT. RACHEL KURLANDAlligator Contributing WriterHousing at two universities are getting an upgrade with a twist. Texas A&M UniversityKingsville and Florida Institute of Technology will add residence halls geared toward Catholic students on their respective campuses in the Fall. The Newman Student Housing Fund, which is sepasupporting the Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Student Residence at the Florida school, according to a press release. The funds goal is to provide housing arrangements that deepen students faith on a secular campus, according to its website. The new FIT residence halls will house 140 students and will eventually be accompanied by a chapel. Though this concept is not being implemented at UF, Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for Student Affairs and UF Housing spokeswoman, wrote in an email that the UF Department of Housing and Residence Education supports all students in seeking spiritual well-being, health and balance, and supports all religions and faiths. Blansett also wrote that UF housing is open to exploring special interests for all students. When developing special interest housing for collegeage students, it is important to be inclusive rather than exclusive, she wrote. Blansett said faith-based housing has the potential to ties and its students if both support the idea. Abigail Nabors, a 20-yearold biomedical engineering junior, said public universities should remain secular so there dents or groups not being acknowledged. cult, she said. UF student Marielle Molina said the idea of Catholic residence halls seems unfair to other religions. The 19-year-old biology sophomore said the idea is strange to her, although she was raised Catholic. Dorms should remain secular, she said. Molina said some religious students may force their views onto others and may be judgmental toward other religions or lifestyles. Molina said students would have to question that living situation and whether they Are you Catholic enough to be here? she said.

Family members said he was a man who held himself to a high standard. As a young man, Deffense worked at McDonalds, and when he dressed for work, he took pride in his uniform: shined shoes and pressed pants. No one looked better at that McDonalds than Jean-Guy, a family member said. His friends reminisced about how Deffense once got his hands on a Boy Scouts uniform, even though he wasnt one. He later became a member of the JROTC at his high school, where he wore his uniform even on prom night.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 CRIME KATHRYN VARNAlligator WriterA Gainesville man who shot a gun at a group of people outside the Butler Plaza movie theater turned himself in Wednesday afternoon. Gainesville Police arrested Zairon Jarquis Fussell, 19, on attempted murder and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, according to GPD.

SHAYNA POSSESAlligator Contributing WriterAs an international airline pilot, Pamela Mincey has witnessed the effects of climate change. She saw a biomass plant slated to open this summer eight miles north of Gainesville as a step in the right direction. At a Gainesville City Commission workshop Wednesday, a divided group of about 70 people discussed their concerns about the plant. The workshop was held as part of a lawsuit settlement between the commission and response group Gainesville Citizens Care Inc. Ray Washington, a local attorney, gave a presentation about what he called the public process of the plants contract. He said details of the contract were kept hidden through redactions to protect Gainesville Renewable Energy Center from competitors. The commission would not listen. It became comical, Washington said. Gainesville Regional Utilities signed a power purchasing agreement in 2009 to purchase all energy produced by the plant. GRU general manager Robert Hunzinger said the company has to purchase some of the energy from the city. Biomass plants use wood to create energy with less pollution than fossil fuels while helping to provide communities with energy security and diversity, said GREC President Jim Gordon. Hunzinger estimated the total value of the plant plus fuel costs at about $3 billion in the 30-year contract. Gordon said investing into the plant will help Gainesville and the surrounding communities, creating jobs and providing tax revenue.Biomass plant sparks civic discussionFussell CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterGainesville Commissioner Randy Wells will run for reelection after he submitted paperwork Monday to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections. Wells is the third candidate in the District 4 city commission election, which is set for March. He will run against W.E. Mac McEachern and Alfredo Espinosa for the position.

The Washington National Cathedral announced Wednesday that it would begin to host same-sex mar riages. The cathedrals congregation and leadership include many gays and lesbians, stated an article by The Associated Press. The church was just waiting for the right moment and the right leader. This is pretty exciting. Dont forget to continue to be excited by news such as this. Every once in a while, some positive news for the LGBT community is announced, but we should continue to make a big deal out of every step in the right direction. Its like when a parent has to be enthusiastic for each new piece of art their toddler makes them. You have to keep giving positive reinforcement with an excited face and a compliment. For more than 30 years, the Episcopal Church has prayed and studied to discern the evidence of Gods blessing in the lives of same-sex couples, the Rev. Gary Hall of the National Catheeach person as a beloved child of God and doing so means including the full participation of gays and lesbians in the life of this spiritual home for the nation. As a kind of tall-steeple, public church in the nations capital, by saying were going to bless same-sex marriages, conduct same-sex marriages, we are really trying to take the next step for marriage equality in the nation and in the culture, Hall said in the AP article. This decision sets an amazing example for the rest of the country especially as it is taking place in our nations capital. We dont fully understand people who dont agree with equality at this point in our nations history. You cant continue to put people down or discriminate against them because they are different than you. Thats not how it works. And no, were not going to delve into the religious facet of the marriage equality argument, because theres no need to bring extra stress into this. I consider it a great honor to lead this Cathedral as it takes another historic step toward greater equality and I am pleased that this step follows the results made clear in this past Novembers election, when three states voted to allow same-sex mar riage, Hall said, according to ABC News. Good for you, dude. There is nothing more admirable than standing up for what you truly believe in despite what adversity you might face. Lets all try to be so brave. I read the Bible as seriously as fundamentalists do, Hall said to the AP. And my reading of the Bible leads me to want to do this because I think its being faithful to the kind of community that Jesus would have us be. Its incredibly inspiring to see an era of change attempt to sweep its way across our nation. Dont be a stick in the mud, because its way more fun to just jump in and enjoy yourself.Kanye and Kims baby: What to expectKim Kardashian, living brand and professional Beyonc wannabe, made headlines Dec. 30 when her beau Kanye West announced her pregnancy at a concert in Atlantic City. According to Entertainment Tonight, West sang, Now you having my baby, and urged the crowd to congratulate his baby mom. In an interview on Jan. 1, Entertainment Tonight asked Kardashian about the pregnancy. Has she encountered morning sickness? Cravings? I wouldnt say its been easy, Kardashian, 32, said. When people say pregnancy is, like, fun and they love it, I would have to disagree. Kardashian is right on with this one, you guys. Shes juggling an unresolved divorce, a Sears fashion line, the gar your Kardashian k-thoughts into a 140-character tweet. The same pregnancy guidelines hawked by the now-outdated In lieu of a baby-shower gift, because my budget wont allow for any pieces from the Baby Dior at Bergdorf Goodman collection, I offer to you, Kim Kardashian, a brief and accessible overview of pregnancy. First, you may have questions about the inevitable changes to your body. You may be thinking, Should I start sewing elastic waistbands into my J Brand jeans? Is it still OK to wear peplum dresses? Will extended wear of Alexander McQueen armadillo heels damage the fetus? Are muumuus really a thing? Whats a cervix? Well, theres no way to dance around it: Your standard diet of D-A-S-H water bottles, edamame and sugarless gum growing inside that bandage-dress-wrapped belly. will soon resemble a lumpy potato embrace it! For the next nine months, look forward to a break from running on the giant hamster wheel that powers the Kris Jenner Empire. And who knows maybe a Kardashian maternity line (with possible Jessica Simpson collaboration?) is the perfect opportunity to jump from Sears to the more versatile, lucrative Target. In addition, youre probably wondering about matters of exercise, diet and sexual activity. What about juice cleanses? Will my Bikram yoga practice give my baby a lopsided head? Will my changing body affect my duties as Kanyes personal Barbie/mannequin? Why am I craving bananas with Tabasco sauce? Unfortunately, a hiatus from rigorous activity is what your baby needs. According to Entertainment Tonight, you are 12 weeks pregnant, and according to TheBump.com, your fetus is the size of a plum. I shudder to think how that plum would look after a session of Kim Kardashian Fit Into Your Jeans by Friday workout session. Be kind to that plum. And whatever you do, pay no attention to Gwyneth Paltrow and her Goop maternity website. This same woman named her children Apple and Moses and tried to launch a country-music career. In her Goop article, she suggests her favorite brand of $148 faux-leather leggings. Paltrow is ridiculous. Do not ever listen to Paltrow. Above all, Kim K, I wish you the best of luck. Remember, nobody is judging you for having a baby. Theyre judging you because Kanye announced it in song in front of an audience, your divorce to Kris Humphries hasnt been consolidated and, according to the New York Daily News, your mother is already collecting bids from celebrity magazines for photos of your baby bump and eventual infant. Oh, and you once said in an interview with The Guardian on your pending divorce, Like, I spoke to a girl today who had cancer and we were talking about how this is such a hard thing for her, but it taught her a big lesson on who her friends are and so much about life and I was like, thats how I feel. Happy motherhood. Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays. Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013 SAMANTHA DOUCETTEAvenue Contributing WriterAfter a disappointing loss against the University of Louisville in the Sugar Bowl, the Gators football team has traded in its gameday uniform for practice jerseys this semester. So, what is there to do in Gainesville now that football season has come and gone? There might be more than you think. Basketball is the sport of choice for students during Spring. Currently ranked 11th in the country, the Gators mens basketball team has been predicted to be a national threat this season. A major perk for students is that the games are free when you register for them at www. gatorzone.com. As the weather warms up, it becomes the perfect time to head out to Ginnie Springs, Paynes Prairie or Lake Wauburg. All three locations offer scenic views, hiking and a great way to explore the nature of Gainesville. Gainesville has so much to offer when it comes to doing stuff outside, said Patrick Wang, a 23-year-old UF engineering senior. Floating down Ginnie Springs and canoeing at Wauburg are some of my favorite ways to relax with my friends on a beautiful day. Spring Break will come and go before you know it, and then, graduation will whisk away another class of seniors into the real world. Plays, speeches, museum events and concerts whatever you do this semester, remember: There are plenty of things to keep yourself busy, even if football season is over.After football season: What to do in Gville only in gainesville

Before last season, OSullivan was optimistic that Thompsons injury issues were behind him. We are hoping we are able to keep him healthy, OSullivan said during fall practice in 2011. I know he is, too. He has had some string of bad luck. Hopefully, he is beyond that. He is a very capable defender, and he has worked awfully hard on his arm.

The group was advocating for the new biomass energy plant that is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2013. UF IS NOT IMPLEMENTING THE CONCEPT. RACHEL KURLANDAlligator Contributing WriterHousing at two universities are getting an upgrade with a twist. Texas A&M UniversityKingsville and Florida Institute of Technology will add residence halls geared toward Catholic students on their respective campuses in the Fall. The Newman Student Housing Fund, which is sepasupporting the Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Student Residence at the Florida school, according to a press release. The funds goal is to provide housing arrangements that deepen students faith on a secular campus, according to its website. The new FIT residence halls will house 140 students and will eventually be accompanied by a chapel. Though this concept is not being implemented at UF, Sharon Blansett, assistant to the associate vice president for Student Affairs and UF Housing spokeswoman, wrote in an email that the UF Department of Housing and Residence Education supports all students in seeking spiritual well-being, health and balance, and supports all religions and faiths. Blansett also wrote that UF housing is open to exploring special interests for all students. When developing special interest housing for collegeage students, it is important to be inclusive rather than exclusive, she wrote. Blansett said faith-based housing has the potential to ties and its students if both support the idea.

UF student Marielle Molina said the idea of Catholic residence halls seems unfair to other religions.

SHAYNA POSSESAlligator Contributing WriterAs an international airline pilot, Pamela Mincey has witnessed the effects of climate change. She saw a biomass plant slated to open this summer eight miles north of Gainesville as a step in the right direction. At a Gainesville City Commission workshop Wednesday, a divided group of about 70 people discussed their concerns about the plant. The workshop was held as part of a lawsuit settlement between the commission and response group Gainesville Citizens Care Inc. Ray Washington, a local attorney, gave a presentation about what he called the public process of the plants contract. He said details of the contract were kept hidden through redactions to protect Gainesville Renewable Energy Center from competitors. The commission would not listen. It became comical, Washington said. Gainesville Regional Utilities signed a power purchasing agreement in 2009 to purchase all energy produced by the plant. GRU general manager Robert Hunzinger said the company has to purchase some of the energy from the city. Biomass plants use wood to create energy with less pollution than fossil fuels while helping to provide communities with energy security and diversity, said GREC President Jim Gordon. Hunzinger estimated the total value of the plant plus fuel costs at about $3 billion in the 30-year contract. Gordon said investing into the plant will help Gainesville and the surrounding communities, creating jobs and providing tax revenue.Biomass plant sparks civic discussionFussell CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff WriterGainesville Commissioner Randy Wells will run for reelection after he submitted paperwork Monday to the Alachua County Supervisor of Elections.

The Washington National Cathedral announced Wednesday that it would begin to host same-sex mar riages. The cathedrals congregation and leadership include many gays and lesbians, stated an article by The Associated Press. The church was just waiting for the right moment and the right leader. This is pretty exciting. Dont forget to continue to be excited by news such as this. Every once in a while, some positive news for the LGBT community is announced, but we should continue to make a big deal out of every step in the right direction. Its like when a parent has to be enthusiastic for each new piece of art their toddler makes them. You have to keep giving positive reinforcement with an excited face and a compliment. For more than 30 years, the Episcopal Church has prayed and studied to discern the evidence of Gods blessing in the lives of same-sex couples, the Rev. Gary Hall of the National Catheeach person as a beloved child of God and doing so means including the full participation of gays and lesbians in the life of this spiritual home for the nation. As a kind of tall-steeple, public church in the nations capital, by saying were going to bless same-sex marriages, conduct same-sex marriages, we are really trying to take the next step for marriage equality in the nation and in the culture, Hall said in the AP article. This decision sets an amazing example for the rest of the country especially as it is taking place in our nations capital. We dont fully understand people who dont agree with equality at this point in our nations history. You cant continue to put people down or discriminate against them because they are different than you. Thats not how it works. And no, were not going to delve into the religious facet of the marriage equality argument, because theres no need to bring extra stress into this. I consider it a great honor to lead this Cathedral as it takes another historic step toward greater equality and I am pleased that this step follows the results made clear in this past Novembers election, when three states voted to allow same-sex mar riage, Hall said, according to ABC News. Good for you, dude. There is nothing more admirable than standing up for what you truly believe in despite what adversity you might face. Lets all try to be so brave. I read the Bible as seriously as fundamentalists do, Hall said to the AP. And my reading of the Bible leads me to want to do this because I think its being faithful to the kind of community that Jesus would have us be. Its incredibly inspiring to see an era of change attempt to sweep its way across our nation. Dont be a stick in the mud, because its way more fun to just jump in and enjoy yourself.Kanye and Kims baby: What to expectKim Kardashian, living brand and professional Beyonc wannabe, made headlines Dec. 30 when her beau Kanye West announced her pregnancy at a concert in Atlantic City. According to Entertainment Tonight, West sang, Now you having my baby, and urged the crowd to congratulate his baby mom. In an interview on Jan. 1, Entertainment Tonight asked Kardashian about the pregnancy. Has she encountered morning sickness? Cravings? I wouldnt say its been easy, Kardashian, 32, said. When people say pregnancy is, like, fun and they love it, I would have to disagree. Kardashian is right on with this one, you guys. Shes juggling an unresolved divorce, a Sears fashion line, the gar your Kardashian k-thoughts into a 140-character tweet. The same pregnancy guidelines hawked by the now-outdated In lieu of a baby-shower gift, because my budget wont allow for any pieces from the Baby Dior at Bergdorf Goodman collection, I offer to you, Kim Kardashian, a brief and accessible overview of pregnancy. First, you may have questions about the inevitable changes to your body. You may be thinking, Should I start sewing elastic waistbands into my J Brand jeans? Is it still OK to wear peplum dresses? Will extended wear of Alexander McQueen armadillo heels damage the fetus? Are muumuus really a thing? Whats a cervix? Well, theres no way to dance around it: Your standard diet of D-A-S-H water bottles, edamame and sugarless gum growing inside that bandage-dress-wrapped belly. will soon resemble a lumpy potato embrace it! For the next nine months, look forward to a break from running on the giant hamster wheel that powers the Kris Jenner Empire. And who knows maybe a Kardashian maternity line (with possible Jessica Simpson collaboration?) is the perfect opportunity to jump from Sears to the more versatile, lucrative Target. In addition, youre probably wondering about matters of exercise, diet and sexual activity. What about juice cleanses? Will my Bikram yoga practice give my baby a lopsided head? Will my changing body affect my duties as Kanyes personal Barbie/mannequin? Why am I craving bananas with Tabasco sauce? Unfortunately, a hiatus from rigorous activity is what your baby needs. According to Entertainment Tonight, you are 12 weeks pregnant, and according to TheBump.com, your fetus is the size of a plum. I shudder to think how that plum would look after a session of Kim Kardashian Fit Into Your Jeans by Friday workout session. Be kind to that plum. And whatever you do, pay no attention to Gwyneth Paltrow and her Goop maternity website. This same woman named her children Apple and Moses and tried to launch a country-music career. In her Goop article, she suggests her favorite brand of $148 faux-leather leggings. Paltrow is ridiculous. Do not ever listen to Paltrow. Above all, Kim K, I wish you the best of luck. Remember, nobody is judging you for having a baby. Theyre judging you because Kanye announced it in song in front of an audience, your divorce to Kris Humphries hasnt been consolidated and, according to the New York Daily News, your mother is already collecting bids from celebrity magazines for photos of your baby bump and eventual infant. Oh, and you once said in an interview with The Guardian on your pending divorce, Like, I spoke to a girl today who had cancer and we were talking about how this is such a hard thing for her, but it taught her a big lesson on who her friends are and so much about life and I was like, thats how I feel. Happy motherhood. Chloe Finch is a journalism sophomore at UF. Her column runs on Thursdays. Chloe Finchopinions@alligator.org

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013 SAMANTHA DOUCETTEAvenue Contributing WriterAfter a disappointing loss against the University of Louisville in the Sugar Bowl, the Gators football team has traded in its gameday uniform for practice jerseys this semester. So, what is there to do in Gainesville now that football season has come and gone? There might be more than you think. Basketball is the sport of choice for students during Spring. Currently ranked 11th in the country, the Gators mens basketball team has been predicted to be a national threat this season. A major perk for students is that the games are free when you register for them at www. gatorzone.com. As the weather warms up, it becomes the perfect time to head out to Ginnie Springs, Paynes Prairie or Lake Wauburg. All three locations offer scenic views, hiking and a great way to explore the nature of Gainesville. Gainesville has so much to offer when it comes to doing stuff outside, said Patrick Wang, a 23-year-old UF engineering senior. Floating down Ginnie Springs and canoeing at Wauburg are some of my favorite ways to relax with my friends on a beautiful day. Spring Break will come and go before you know it, and then, graduation will whisk away another class of seniors into the real world. Plays, speeches, museum events and concerts whatever you do this semester, remember: There are plenty of things to keep yourself busy, even if football season is over.After football season: What to do in Gville only in gainesville

LANDON WATNICKAlligator WriterForward Erik Murphy fractured one of his ribs when he absorbed contact from a teammate during Fridays practice. Murphy missed Sundays game against Yale, and coach Billy Donovan listed the senior as doubtful on Monday. Still, Murphy dove for balls and drew charges Wednesday night. In 18 minutes off the bench, Murphy scored 11 points as No. 11 Florida (11-2, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) opened its SEC slate with a 77-44 victory against Georgia in the OConnell Center.

I wouldnt say I played that well, he said. I have to rebound better. his ribs against Air Force on Dec. 29 but fractured one of his ribs Friday. He missed practice Monday but returned Tuesday. Murphy wore a pad wrapped over the fractured rib Wednesday night. [Athletic trainer Dave Werner] is the best in the business, so I just trusted him, Murphy said. Hell always nurse me back to health. [Werner] made a little contraption, so when I get hit, it doesnt hurt that bad. Redshirt senior guard Mike Rosario scored a team-high 19 points on 6-of-10 shooting, while junior forward Casey Prather notched 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting and grabbed seven boards. Prather started ahead of Murphy and junior forward Will Yeguete, who is dealing with tendinitis in his right knee. Yeguete, who averaged 24.8 minutes per game before Wednesday, went scoreless in 14. This has been going on for a couple of weeks here. It just got progressively worse, Donovan said. After the Yale game, it really, really bothered him, and he tried to practice on Monday and couldnt go, then tried to go again [Tuesday] and couldnt go. This is going to be kind of an ongoing thing with him for a little while until we can kind of get it calmed down. since Feb. 24, 2011, Prather set the tone early for the Gators. During Floridas 11-0 run in the two steals, including one in the fullcourt press. It was just a good feeling because the crowd was into it, my teammates jumping around, Prather said. It was a great energy boost for our team. half and 9-0 in the second period. The Gators held Bulldogs guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting.

Senior forward Jennifer George is questionable for tonights game at 8 against Mississippi State after suffering a dislocated shoulder in the second half against LSU. George has been considered day-to-day this week and will be evaluated prior to the game. My range of motion really decides what I can do, George said. If Im not able to be 100 percent, I will save it for Tennessee on Sunday. If George is unavailable, the Gators will have just eight active players against the Bulldogs. Florida has been without Chandler Cooper since she suffered a left foot injury on Nov. 15 in a 98-67 loss to Florida State. Viktorija Dimaite, a player coach Amanda Butler hoped would provide another option on the low-block, suffered a torn ACL before the season in practice on Nov. 3.

Thompson struggled to stay healthy throughout his career, suffering knee, back, hamstring, hand and wrist injuries. Before last season, OSullivan was optimistic that Thompsons injury issues were behind him. We are hoping we are able to keep him healthy, OSullivan said during fall practice in 2011. I know he is, too. He has had some string of bad luck. Hopefully, he is beyond that. He is a very capable defender, and he has worked awfully hard on his arm. I am just excited to see him go a full year injury free. Thompsons season ended when he suffered the ACL tear on March 18. Florida went 13-1 in Thompsons 14 starts last season. iel Pigott in the Cincinnati Reds organization, sophomore Justin Shafer is Thompsons likely replacement.

George suffered the injury with 5:06 remaining in the second half on Sunday. She got tangled defending LSUs Adrienne Webb and fell awkwardly on her right shoulder. Floridas medical staff assisted George off the court and popped her shoulder back into place in the locker room. George watched the duration of the second half from the bench with her right arm in a sling and her shoulder heavily wrapped. George leads the Gators with 14.6 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game. George is also the SECs active leader in career double-doubles with 26, seven of which have come this season. Florida (12-4, 1-1 SEC) will be challenged to stop Mississippi State (8-7, 0-2 SEC) without George. The Bulldogs are led by 6-foot-4 sophomore Martha Alwal, who averages 11.6 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. Redshirt sophomore Kayla Lewis acknowledged the Gators would be undermanned without George sity has become one of the teams strengths the past two seasons. Our coaches have done a great job of letting us know that adver sity was going to come even before we had it, Lewis said. Youve just got to be resilient. Thats what ient. Florida posted a season-opening Nov. 9, a game George missed due to personal reasons. Lewis scored 12 points and pulled down seven rebounds. Butler said the Gators will need to bring that type of intensity into Starkville, Miss., particularly if Georges balky shoulder causes her to miss the game. Its just an unfortunate part of our game, Butler said. Its not something that affects our expectation. It doesnt affect our momentum or our mood. I think our team understands that.

Florida shot 52.7 percent and was 12 of 26 on three-point attempts. Our defense wasnt as ready as we had been the last couple of games, Caldwell-Pope said. We just laid down and gave them easy baskets. UF utilized a full-court press to force 19 UGA 10 giveaways and took only six shots. We know that we could be a very, very good defensive team, Rosario said. Were playing for something, so right now, it means a lot to us holding teams under 50. Were just trying to keep that intensity on that end because it creates offense for our team. HOOPS, from page 14 Florida forced 19 Georgia turnovers

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2013 Alligator File PhotoUF gymnastics coach Rhonda Faehn is impressed with the quick development of freshman Morgan Frazier this season. GYMNASTICS CHUCK KINGSBURYAlligator WriterLast weeks opening meet against Ball State gave coach Rhonda Faehn the chance to evaluate Bridget Sloans collegiate debut. With Florida traveling to No. 8 of the season, Faehn may have the chance to see how another freshman, Morgan Frazier, performs in competition after a few weeks of training. self, and I would love to see her get out there because she can certainly bring depth to this team on three events, coach Rhonda Faehn said. Frazier is one of three gymnasts who signed a national letter of intent with Florida in November, along with teammates Silvia Colussi-Perez and Claire Boyce. Frazier, from Orlando Metros club team, won 2012 Florida Level 10 titles for all-around, vault and balance beam. She enrolled at UF this spring, marking the fourth consecutive season a gymnast joined the team midyear. vide depth in many events, Faehn is especially intrigued by both her Sloan is also impressed with her fellow freshman. I havent seen her compete much from the time she was a (Flor ida) Level 10 (competitor), but I heard she was really dedicated and shes brought that here, Sloan said. Shes been working her butt off. Frazier said she has seen an increased workload since coming to Florida. The training is much faster and the practices are much faster, more intense because you can only train for a certain amount of time, Frazier said. Frazier has taken notice of the work ethic and style of sophomore Kytra Hunter and All-American Ashanee Dickerson. The duo showed Frazier several nuances, such as running faster and opening her shoulders during her vault routines. The added time in the gym has aided Fraziers college transition, and she noted that Sloans recent debut has been reassuring. was going out there and that gave too, I can hang with them, Frazier said. Whether Frazier will be competing on vault come Friday has yet to be determined, but UF has a range of gymnasts it can call upon when needed.Freshman adjusting to college quickly Morgan FrazierUF coach
