David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida Gov. Rick Scott speaks outside Gainesville High School about the 2013 proposal to give full-time teachers a $2,500 pay raise across the state at a press conference Thursday. JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterGov. Rick Scott talked about his proposal for a $2,500 increase to teachers salaries across the state during a visit to Gainesville High School on Thursday morning. As part of a trip to Tampa, Scott stopped in Gainesville to meet with GHS students and administrators while he toured the schools Navy Junior ROTC program and the Academy of Health Professions. After the tour, Scott discussed his plan to raise teachers salaries, which is part of his 2013 budget. Scott also wants to work toward an increase in K-12 education funding. He said he believes teachers across the state deserve the raise. Our state and our school systems are heading in the right direction because of great superintendents, great principals, great teachers, great staff, he said. We need to compensate our teachers well and keep them here engaged with our students. Scott added that the proposal still needs to go through the state Legislature in Tallahassee. While many teachers are wary about Scotts proposal, which he announced Wednesday at a school in Orlando, Karen McCann, president of the Alachua County Education Association, said she isnt concerned. She said she believed Scott wouldnt have declared the proposal if the pay raise wasnt his intention. issues, she said, but I do feel step in the right direction. McCann said the $2,500 raise will help balance out the 3 percent cut to teachers pensions last year.Scott tours Gainesville High, discusses teacher raiseSEE SCOTT, PAGE 4 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterStudents will be able to weigh in on a change to allow bars and clubs in Gainesville to close an hour later. A referendum question, which will be on Student Governments Spring elections ballot, will ask students if they want bars and clubs to stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. but close at 3 a.m. The nonbinding referendum was passed by the Student Senate Tuesday night. As of now, Gainesville law requires all bars and clubs to close at 2 a.m. The referendum will not change the law, but it will gauge students opinions on it. Senate President Christina Bonarrigo, who authored the referendum, said a soft closing at 2 a.m. gives people time to be in a state where they can get home safely. Nicholas Smith, general manager of The Swamp Restaurant, said he would support a soft closing and a later hard closing, even if its just 30 minutes apart. We have to be hoarding them out at 2 a.m. like cattle, he said. If the referendum is passed favorably by students, Bonarrigo said the next step is getting city commissioners and the mayor on board.

free lecture, which 580 students did, or watch it online. One of the things were trying to do with this course is create a common UF experience that sort of paves the way for students as they enter the university, Wolpert said. Every semester, the course instructors invite an inspirational speaker to address the class. Last semester, the lecture featured George Rupp, the former president of Rice University and Columbia Univer sity, and current CEO and president of the International Rescue Committee, which responds to humanitar ian crises. Besides attending a lecture every semester, students in the class are required to participate in two other outside activities. This semester, those activities include a perfor mance at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and a tour of the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art. We use these activities to show how these questions and ideas were raising in class touch on all aspects of the students lives, Wolpert said. After the lecture, Machen opened When asked if he believes he is living the good life, Machen said he has the best job in the world. In fact, I cant give it up, he said.

New attractions include Fools of Fortune, a juggling act, and Jypsy Jester, which features the acrobatic stylings of sisters Topsy and Turvy.

The study predicted that students who received more than $16,000 in aid from their parents have GPAs below a 3.0. It also found that students apply themselves less when they dont have to earn their money for college. If youre always given everything, theres no motivation to really invest in it, said Victor Harris, assistant professor and extension specialist for UFs Department of Family, Youth and Community Sciences. But if you have to work for it and create this educational experience for yourself so that you can be successful, then youre more likely to be invested in it.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterThe general public can now hunt in certain conservation areas under a decision made by the Alachua County commissioners in a meeting Tuesday. Public hunting is now allowed by appointment in areas including Mill Creek Preserve, Balu Forest and Longleaf Flatwoods Reserve. The ruling was made on the suggestions of the Alachua County Forever Hunting Business Plan, a document two years in the making. The head of the project, Ramesh Buch, said the decision was made in hopes of opening up new forms of recreation in Alachua County. It will bring in no additional revenue for the county. Hunting in these areas will be free of any additional fees, other than those posed originally by the state of Florida. We dont charge other recreation users for our land, so why charge hunters? Buch said. areas, the county has entered into private agreements with individual hunters in exchange for caretaking. Each one saves us $10,000 a year, easily, Buch said. It was so successful that weve replicated that agreement eight times now. It was the start of us having hunting on our property. Buch went on to say hunters have been asking to be involved in this agreement since its inception in 2004. Thats partly the reason they began to look into allowing general public hunting. It suits our need to have caretakers at no cost to us, and they take good care of the land, Buch said. They send us monthly reports, so we dont have to get out there every week, and hunters by and large are pretty good stewards. Theyre invested in having a good experience. So far, reactions to the opening of the lands have been about 90 percent positive, Buch said. But some are worried about the potential consequences to local wildlife. UF assistant professor of wildlife management Bill Giuliano attended the public meeting Tuesday night and said he believes enough regulation is in place to protect the population from overhunting. The county will use it as a tool to better manage those species and the habitats and parks they live in, Giuliano said. And in other cases, it will provide recreational opportunities for folks, which I think as planned is not going to cause any detriment to those populations.Commission gives hunters more land THE RUN IS ON SATURDAY.

You, as a representative of humanity, ask yourself where were headed and what youre doing right now to contribute to our movement. It has been more than a month since the Newtown school shooting, and just this week there was a shooting at a community college in Houston. If you watch or read the news, it can seem that things are getting worse all the time. But are they really? Harvard University professor Steven Pinker argues that we are probably living in the most peaceful times ever, and he uses plenty of statistics to support his argument. Assuming Pinker is right, why is it that things seem to be getting worse? Part of it might have to do with the news. Professor Graham C.L. Davey of the University of Sussex argues that the TV news sensationalizes its reports in order to compete with entertainment programs. However, such sensationalization can produce negative effects. Davey found that negative broadcasts cause sadness and anxiety. The negative effects of stress on the body have been widely studied and found to contribute to all kinds of undesirable conditions such as obesity, diabetes and Alzheimers. Perhaps worse than that, though, is the moral effect of any Southern California found that certain emotional responses, such as compassion, can be dulled when the brain is faced with continuous snippets of data. Given the research, how might our media affect not only our sense of right and wrong, but our overall empathy? How might they affect the impressionable, developing brains of children? Might our culture contain elements that work to create tragedies? Whether you agree with the current or proposed gun policies, we must come to terms with the fact that every shooter is a product of our own culture, a culture that each of us, knowingly or unknowingly, contributes to. Are we living in a culture that is fertile for the creation of healthy minds? Is our civilization a shinhumans can look like? Are guns and anything having to do with guns the only factors contributing to the creation of killers? Are gun killings the only fatal problems facing our species? Im not trying to detract from the importance of considering guns. Rather, I am attempting to draw some attention tion to what may be root causes. Im not saying that we should delude ourselves, either. No rose-colored glasses are preferable to the bare truth. However, perhaps there is a healthy degree of moderation that we should pursue when engaging in any behavior, be it reporting a killing on the news, interacting with our neighbors or contacting our Congress members. Every action plays its own role in creating the cultural zeitgeist, no matter how inconsequential the action may seem. A product of living in large communities can be a feeling of social alienation and a feeling that the individual is powerless. Remember, though, that societies are just groups of many individuals and that every individual adds to the whole. So, which way are we headed? I dont know the answer. But, if were to thrive, it will only be when every one of us takes personal interest and responsibility for our own actions to create a better future.

It took the average person them experience the crazed mind set of the NFL. Where do we go from here? Social media lets fans (and reporters) get closer to the athlete, coach or owner. Deadspins coverage of the Teo story has pretty much restored the value in investigative sports journalism. A shift to honesty, to disclosure, to rationality horizon. Unfortunately, that comes with the price of seeing the true personality of a prominent individual. Its hard to construct a heroic narrative of someone overcoming the odds when the hero either cheated doing Its even harder to construct one when the person is a jerk. honesty, well see sports shift to making its participants more civil.

She heard Panetta wasnt supposed to make a decision for a while. We are witnessing a historical moment developing in front of us, said the Womens Student Association advocacy director. In a press conference Thursday, Panetta said in the U.S., it is the responsibility of every citizen to protect the nation, and evof service should have that opportunity. Women make up approximately 15 percent of the U.S. militarys active personnel, according to the Department of Defenses website. Now, about 250,000 jobs will be open to them and women who enlist in the future. Military departments must have plans for implementing this lift by May 15, according to the department. Nutter said by lifting the ban, she hopes the militarys paternal approach will be reduced. I want men and women to be equal, and that includes the not-so-pretty stuff. Yeah, I want equality because I want equal pay, but I also want to be exposed to the risks and the downfalls, she said. I think that is a big step that women dont need to be protected and coddled and patronized. Panetta said in the press conference viewed no differently than men. They serve, theyre wounded, and they die right next to each other, he said. The time has come to recognize that reality. But Estefania Concepcion, a 22-yearold UF sociology senior, said this is just another way for women to get hurt, even if its one more step for equality. Nutter said this gives women more role models. Now girls and women can say, Look, now I can do these jobs. Maybe someday I will be able to be a Navy SEAL, she said. UFs ROTC programs declined to comment on the matter.Ban on womens combat lifted

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterCoach Mike Holloway knew sophomore Marquis Dendy was fast when he recruited him. And during the Gator Invitational on Jan. 17 in the OConnell Center, Dendy proved it. year of high school, Dendy competed in the 6.31 seconds. I think it surprised a lot of people, Dendy said following the race. Setting up in blocks isnt Dendys forte. Instead, Dendy has made a name for himself at Florida in the pits. During his freshman campaign, Dendy claimed eight victories in jumps. His biggest win came at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships on Feb. 25, 2012 in Lexington, Ky. Dendy used an indoor personalbest mark of 8.06m (26-5.50 feet) to claim the long jump title. Although he has already succeeded in the long jump, he hasnt seen the same results in the triple jump. Of his eight wins last year, only one came in the triple jump. This year, Dendy is trying to improve his results in triple jump. At the Gator InvitationAccording to Holloway, Dendy raced in the 55m last week to improve his marks in both the long and triple jump. However, Holloway sees potential for Dendy in sprints. Its just part of his development as a jumper, Holloway said. When we signed him, we knew he had pretty good foot speed. Because of his health, we held him out of the sprints last year, but hes healthy now, so were going to try to develop him in that area and see where it goes. Dendy started practicing short sprints at the beginning of the fall semester. But a tweaked hamstring kept him away from the event until recently. While preparing for the Gator Invitational, Dendy set up in the blocks only once dur ing practice on Jan. 14. The next time he set up was during the preliminaries at the meet. Still, Dendy was pleased with his secondplace performance and is excited to see how much he can improve in the event throughout the season. Hopefully, I can keep running and dropping good times, Dendy said. Maybe Ill run at [the SEC Indoor Championships], and if I qualify for [the NCAA Indoor Championabout getting a good amount of points, so I think he sees me as a very good candidate in running three events. I think I can do it. The Gators will send 52 athletes to Fayetteville, Ark., today to compete in the Razor back Invitational. While Dendy competes in the long jump this weekend, he has his mind My mom said if I jump 27.5, I get a car, Dendy said. I have the car picked out, she knows that car and has it saved on her phone. Ive sent it to her multiple times, so I know Ive just got to jump that.

David Carr / Alligator StaffFlorida Gov. Rick Scott speaks outside Gainesville High School about the 2013 proposal to give full-time teachers a $2,500 pay raise across the state at a press conference Thursday. JEWEL MIDELISAlligator Contributing WriterGov. Rick Scott talked about his proposal for a $2,500 increase to teachers salaries across the state during a visit to Gainesville High School on Thursday morning. As part of a trip to Tampa, Scott stopped in Gainesville to meet with GHS students and administrators while he toured the schools Navy Junior ROTC program and the Academy of Health Professions. After the tour, Scott discussed his plan to raise teachers salaries, which is part of his 2013 budget. Scott also wants to work toward an increase in K-12 education funding. He said he believes teachers across the state deserve the raise. Our state and our school systems are heading in the right direction because of great superintendents, great principals, great teachers, great staff, he said. We need to compensate our teachers well and keep them here engaged with our students. Scott added that the proposal still needs to go through the state Legislature in Tallahassee. While many teachers are wary about Scotts proposal, which he announced Wednesday at a school in Orlando, Karen McCann, president of the Alachua County Education Association, said she isnt concerned. She said she believed Scott wouldnt have declared the proposal if the pay raise wasnt his intention. issues, she said, but I do feel step in the right direction. McCann said the $2,500 raise will help balance out the 3 percent cut to teachers pensions last year.Scott tours Gainesville High, discusses teacher raiseSEE SCOTT, PAGE 4 COLLEEN WRIGHTAlligator WriterStudents will be able to weigh in on a change to allow bars and clubs in Gainesville to close an hour later. A referendum question, which will be on Student Governments Spring elections ballot, will ask students if they want bars and clubs to stop serving alcohol at 2 a.m. but close at 3 a.m. The nonbinding referendum was passed by the Student Senate Tuesday night. As of now, Gainesville law requires all bars and clubs to close at 2 a.m. The referendum will not change the law, but it will gauge students opinions on it. Senate President Christina Bonarrigo, who authored the referendum, said a soft closing at 2 a.m. gives people time to be in a state where they can get home safely. Nicholas Smith, general manager of The Swamp Restaurant, said he would support a soft closing and a later hard closing, even if its just 30 minutes apart. We have to be hoarding them out at 2 a.m. like cattle, he said. If the referendum is passed favorably by students, Bonarrigo said the next step is getting city commissioners and the mayor on board.

One of the things were trying to do with this course is create a common UF experience that sort of paves the way for students as they enter the university, Wolpert said. Every semester, the course instructors invite an inspirational speaker to address the class. Last semester, the lecture featured George Rupp, the former president of Rice University and Columbia Univer sity, and current CEO and president of the International Rescue Committee, which responds to humanitar ian crises. Besides attending a lecture every semester, students in the class are required to participate in two other outside activities. This semester, those activities include a perfor mance at the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and a tour of the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art.

If youre always given everything, theres no motivation to really invest in it, said Victor Harris, assistant professor and extension specialist for UFs Department of Family, Youth and Community Sciences. But if you have to work for it and create this educational experience for yourself so that you can be successful, then youre more likely to be invested in it. Samantha Adams, a 20-year-old UF criminology and Japasuch as scholarships and loans, can motivate students to work harder. I know people who are on scholarships I feel like they might actually do better because they feel like they have this obligation, and theyre just harder workers in general, she said. At UF, 84 percent of students receive With about 97 percent of incoming freshman receiving Bright Futures, according to the SFA report, most UF students have a constant reminder to keep their GPAs up. Its a good way at the beginning of the semester to remind yourself what youre here for, Adams said. However, the report suggested that students who have extra money from home are more likely to spend the money on social events and extracurricular activities, which could impact their GPAs. graduate student, agreed. It is really hard to focus on your studies when theres so many distractions, she said. Harris said for students, education should be a priority, esSchool is really their job right now, he said. A number of students work as well, but I think that the greatest gift they can give back is showing their appreciation by investing in school and showing through their education that theyre preparing themselves to be self-reliant and independent.Study shows parental financial support can lower GPAMachen answered students questions MA CHEN, from page 1 SCOTT, from page 1Students, teachers met Scott on his tourHarris The choice was pretty clear.Elliot GrassoSwamp Party spokesman

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 LOCAL ALEX HARRISAlligator Contributing WriterThe general public can now hunt in certain conservation areas under a decision made by the Alachua County commissioners in a meeting Tuesday. Public hunting is now allowed by appointment in areas including Mill Creek Preserve, Balu Forest and Longleaf Flatwoods Reserve. The ruling was made on the suggestions of the Alachua County Forever Hunting Business Plan, a document two years in the making. The head of the project, Ramesh Buch, said the decision was made in hopes of opening up new forms of recreation in Alachua County. It will bring in no additional revenue for the county. Hunting in these areas will be free of any additional fees, other than those posed originally by the state of Florida. We dont charge other recreation users for our land, so why charge hunters? Buch said. areas, the county has entered into private agreements with individual hunters in exchange for caretaking. Each one saves us $10,000 a year, easily, Buch said. It was so successful that weve replicated that agreement eight times now. It was the start of us having hunting on our property. Buch went on to say hunters have been asking to be involved in this agreement since its inception in 2004. Thats partly the reason they began to look into allowing general public hunting. It suits our need to have caretakers at no cost to us, and they take good care of the land, Buch said. They send us monthly reports, so we dont have to get out there every week, and hunters by and large are pretty good stewards. Theyre invested in having a good experience. So far, reactions to the opening of the lands have been about 90 percent positive, Buch said. But some are worried about the potential consequences to local wildlife. UF assistant professor of wildlife management Bill Giuliano attended the public meeting Tuesday night and said he believes enough regulation is in place to protect the population from overhunting. The county will use it as a tool to better manage those species and the habitats and parks they live in, Giuliano said. And in other cases, it will provide recreational opportunities for folks, which I think as planned is not going to cause any detriment to those populations.Commission gives hunters more land THE RUN IS ON SATURDAY. ALYSSA FISHERAlligator Contributing Writer spirit Saturday as students jog through campus covered in or ange and blue powder during the The UF Alumni Association is hosting the 5K run to bring Gators together, to encourage student membership and to give back to the community. Registration for the run begins at 3 p.m. on Flavet Field, and the run starts at 4:30 p.m. Student Alumni Association philanthropy chairwoman and Florida Cicerone Mercedes Castro said about 900 people have already registered online. She hopes registration exceeds 1,000 on Saturday. hundreds of pounds of orange and blue powder will be thrown onto the runners. We wanted to do something that would bring the hype back into the UF Alumni Association, said Castro, a 22-year-old marketing senior. Castro said participants should come to the run with school supelementary schools in Gainesville. The University Police-approved course starts on Flavet Field and goes through Fraternity Row. There will be a post-race celebration on Flavet Field. It will be like a powder party after the run, Castro said. Former cross country runner Andrea Esinhart was looking for a laid-back way to run.

Thursdays question: Do you use contraception?68% YES 32% NO54 TOTAL VOTESThe future relies on social responsibilityIts time for us to take a good, hard look in the mirror. You, as a representative of humanity, ask yourself where were headed and what youre doing right now to contribute to our movement. It has been more than a month since the Newtown school shooting, and just this week there was a shooting at a community college in Houston. If you watch or read the news, it can seem that things are getting worse all the time. But are they really? Harvard University professor Steven Pinker argues that we are probably living in the most peaceful times ever, and he uses plenty of statistics to support his argument. Assuming Pinker is right, why is it that things seem to be getting worse? Part of it might have to do with the news. Professor Graham C.L. Davey of the University of Sussex argues that the TV news sensationalizes its reports in order to compete with entertainment programs. However, such sensationalization can produce negative effects. Davey found that negative broadcasts cause sadness and anxiety. The negative effects of stress on the body have been widely studied and found to contribute to all kinds of undesirable conditions such as obesity, diabetes and Alzheimers. Perhaps worse than that, though, is the moral effect of any Southern California found that certain emotional responses, such as compassion, can be dulled when the brain is faced with continuous snippets of data. Given the research, how might our media affect not only our sense of right and wrong, but our overall empathy? How might they affect the impressionable, developing brains of children? Might our culture contain elements that work to create tragedies? Whether you agree with the current or proposed gun policies, we must come to terms with the fact that every shooter is a product of our own culture, a culture that each of us, knowingly or unknowingly, contributes to. Are we living in a culture that is fertile for the creation of healthy minds? Is our civilization a shinhumans can look like? Are guns and anything having to do with guns the only factors contributing to the creation of killers? Are gun killings the only fatal problems facing our species? Im not trying to detract from the importance of considering guns. Rather, I am attempting to draw some attention tion to what may be root causes. Im not saying that we should delude ourselves, either. No rose-colored glasses are preferable to the bare truth. However, perhaps there is a healthy degree of moderation that we should pursue when engaging in any behavior, be it reporting a killing on the news, interacting with our neighbors or contacting our Congress members. Every action plays its own role in creating the cultural zeitgeist, no matter how inconsequential the action may seem. A product of living in large communities can be a feeling of social alienation and a feeling that the individual is powerless. Remember, though, that societies are just groups of many individuals and that every individual adds to the whole. So, which way are we headed? I dont know the answer. But, if were to thrive, it will only be when every one of us takes personal interest and responsibility for our own actions to create a better future.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7 Manti Teos girlfriend never existed. Lance Armstrong never won a Tour de France cleanly. Most NFL players would hide a concussion to stay on concussions. Coaches have hidden injuries for years. Pete Rose said he never That is, until 225 pages of evidence proved that he sport. All of this leads to a single question: Can we trust sports? Or our favorite players? There are so many layers peeled away for the truth in sports to come out. Major league sports audiences, and college sports programs arent too far We all know an athlete his or her health, though, not when the team is losing and the game is almost over. The crowd cheers when play. Stories like that are praised all athletes to follow. And were OK with that. us, when we as society just accept the rampant dishonesty? inch sandwich that claims enough athletes are paid to endorse it. More than that, it shows we dont care. exposing the lie. Instead, we claim that a journalistic entity following up on a story is trying to ruin But in a way, this has a the truth that much more coach Will Muschamp called 2011, the shock value was divided into two main factors. a coach had the gumption to say something negative importantly, it was shocking true. When Jason Taylor (of Miami Dolphins fame) told where players were patched up in order to get them to play with as little pain as story. It took the average person them experience the crazed mind set of the NFL. Where do we go from here? Social media lets fans (and reporters) get closer to the athlete, coach or owner. Deadspins coverage of the Teo story has pretty much restored the value in investigative sports journalism. A shift to honesty, to disclosure, to rationality horizon. Unfortunately, that comes with the price of seeing the true personality of a prominent individual. Its hard to construct a heroic narrative of someone overcoming the odds when the hero either cheated doing Its even harder to construct one when the person is a jerk. honesty, well see sports shift to making its participants more civil.

8, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, JANUARY 25, 2013 Andrea Sarcos / AlligatorFlying Through the PlazaUF biology and English senior Jose Adner Cardona, 21, rides on the back of UF environmental science senior Steven Kanners, 21, bike Thursday afternoon on the Plaza of the Americas. Kanner builds custom-designed Kanner Kart bicycle trailers. THE LIFT WILL BE IMPLEMENTED BY MAY 15. DEVON ABELMANAlligator Contributing WriterDuring her Sociology of Women class Tuesday, Katie Nutter listed off rights exclusive to men. ing in combat off that list. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced the lifting of a ban that kept frontlines of combat Thursday. In 1994, Secretary of Defense Les Aspin women from being assigned to units that may engage in direct combat. Nutter said she was thrilled to hear the news and hopes Panettas decision is genuine and not just symbolic. I think we look to a lot of our social institutions for norms, for our expectations, she said. And I think its very discouraging that the military, such a huge and important institution in the U.S., continues to reinforce inequality. Kelsey Harclerode, a 21-year-old UF political science and womens studies senior, said this news came with a mixture of excitement and shock for her. She heard Panetta wasnt supposed to make a decision for a while. We are witnessing a historical moment developing in front of us, said the Womens Student Association advocacy director. In a press conference Thursday, Panetta said in the U.S., it is the responsibility of every citizen to protect the nation, and evof service should have that opportunity. Women make up approximately 15 percent of the U.S. militarys active personnel, according to the Department of Defenses website. Now, about 250,000 jobs will be open to them and women who enlist in the future. Military departments must have plans for implementing this lift by May 15, according to the department. Nutter said by lifting the ban, she hopes the militarys paternal approach will be reduced. I want men and women to be equal, and that includes the not-so-pretty stuff. Yeah, I want equality because I want equal pay, but I also want to be exposed to the risks and the downfalls, she said. I think that is a big step that women dont need to be protected and coddled and patronized. Panetta said in the press conference viewed no differently than men. They serve, theyre wounded, and they die right next to each other, he said. The time has come to recognize that reality. But Estefania Concepcion, a 22-yearold UF sociology senior, said this is just another way for women to get hurt, even if its one more step for equality. Nutter said this gives women more role models. Now girls and women can say, Look, now I can do these jobs. Maybe someday I will be able to be a Navy SEAL, she said. UFs ROTC programs declined to comment on the matter.Ban on womens combat lifted

KATIE AGOSTINAlligator Staff WriterCoach Mike Holloway knew sophomore Marquis Dendy was fast when he recruited him. And during the Gator Invitational on Jan. 17 in the OConnell Center, Dendy proved it. year of high school, Dendy competed in the 6.31 seconds. I think it surprised a lot of people, Dendy said following the race. Setting up in blocks isnt Dendys forte. Instead, Dendy has made a name for himself at Florida in the pits. During his freshman campaign, Dendy claimed eight victories in jumps. His biggest win came at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships on Feb. 25, 2012 in Lexington, Ky. Dendy used an indoor personalbest mark of 8.06m (26-5.50 feet) to claim the long jump title. Although he has already succeeded in the long jump, he hasnt seen the same results in the triple jump. Of his eight wins last year, only one came in the triple jump. This year, Dendy is trying to improve his results in triple jump. At the Gator InvitationAccording to Holloway, Dendy raced in the 55m last week to improve his marks in both the long and triple jump. However, Holloway sees potential for Dendy in sprints. Its just part of his development as a jumper, Holloway said. When we signed him, we knew he had pretty good foot speed. Because of his health, we held him out of the sprints last year, but hes healthy now, so were going to try to develop him in that area and see where it goes. Dendy started practicing short sprints at the beginning of the fall semester. But a tweaked hamstring kept him away from the event until recently. While preparing for the Gator Invitational, Dendy set up in the blocks only once dur ing practice on Jan. 14. The next time he set up was during the preliminaries at the meet. Still, Dendy was pleased with his secondplace performance and is excited to see how much he can improve in the event throughout the season. Hopefully, I can keep running and dropping good times, Dendy said. Maybe Ill run at [the SEC Indoor Championships], and if I qualify for [the NCAA Indoor Championabout getting a good amount of points, so I think he sees me as a very good candidate in running three events. I think I can do it. The Gators will send 52 athletes to Fayetteville, Ark., today to compete in the Razor back Invitational. While Dendy competes in the long jump this weekend, he has his mind My mom said if I jump 27.5, I get a car, Dendy said. I have the car picked out, she knows that car and has it saved on her phone.
