The exercise will temporarily block access to campus um. Activity is also expected around the UF Health Science Center, University Police Chief Linda Stump wrote in an email sent to faculty, staff and students Tuesday. UPD Spokesman Maj. Brad Barber said the fullscale exercise which will volunteers and hospital personnel provides UF with a learning environment to practice emergency mass casualty plans, policies and procedures. More than 200 participants and observers are scheduled to attend, he said. Volunteers will portray victims and be transported to emergency rooms including ones at UF Health Shands Hospital. UF emergency management coordinator Hal Grieb said once the victims arrive, doctors will respond to simulated injuries designed to mirror the ones that could result from a real scenario. The simulation will include mass casualty incidents, Grieb said, Anything that can range from cuts and scrapes to more serious incidents. The evaluation points for the exercise and the plan itself are based on the public safety plan at the stadium and the comprehensive emergency plan at UF. Looking at community safety, certainly there are many challenges that are faced in the world we live in today, Barber said. These exercises help better prepare us to meet those challenges.UF emergency exercise to congest campusSTATE MCKENZIE DOLLAlligator Contributing WriterThe 2013 hurricane season starts Saturday, and experts are predicting a stormy six months. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Atlantic hurricane season outlook estimated a 70 percent likelihood of up to 20 named storms, of which up to 11 could become hurricanes including up to six Category 3s, 4s or 5s. The average, according to its website, is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major ones. This hurricane season is expected to be more severe than past years, said Mike Spranger, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences professor in family, youth and community sciences who created a handbook about preparing for natural disasters. UF emergency management coordinator Kenneth Allen said people should prepare by creating emergency evacuation plans, buying supplies and stocking up on at least three days worth of food and water. In the event of a hurricane at UF, Allen said, on-campus residents living in dorms should follow the advice of their housing staff. Off-campus residents should follow protocols The university is constantly working to keep the students, faculty and staff as safe and well-prepared as we can, Allen said.Hurricane season starts this weekend THE INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING.

Melissa Blouin, UF Health Communications director of news and publications, said because the employees job dealt with viewing medical records, any patient at UF Pediatric Primary Care Clinic at Tower Square, now known as UF Health Pediatrics Tower Square, could be at risk. According to a news release, the employee may have used pediatric patient records to steal personal information including names, addresses, dates of birth and Social Security numbers. Blouin said the name of the employee has not been released. But the employee was terminated, and law enforcement is taking action against the person, according to the release. Secret Service Special Agent in charge Lee Fields said he could not comment on the case because it is ongoing. But he said identity theft cases are complex.

And living thousands of miles from his mother, Nuru, and his family in Toronto, he can keep his lifestyle hidden. But when Alims conservative mom pays an impromptu visit with the intention of dragging her son to a big, fat, monsoon wedding and getting him matched up with a nice girl, the spirit of Cary Grant suddenly becomes indispensable.

This is the real strength of Yuichiro Miura, Gota said of his fathers recovery and persistence in traveling another 2 1/2 hours later in the day to reach their camp at 8,000 meters. Miura was a daredevil speed skier in his youth, and skied down Everests South Col in 1970, using a parachute to brake his descent. He also skied down Mount Fuji. Though he says he does not plan another Everest attempt, Miura says he hopes to do plenty of skiing and to live life to the fullest. It isnt just about staying healthy, but its about having goals, he said. You dont need to climb Mount Fuji or travel overseas. Just get out of the house. Enjoy good food. Those are the things we should do, said Miura, who dined on hot pot and hand-rolled sushi and enjoyed gourmet Japanese green tea during his climb. Miura expressed sadness over the disappearance Friday of a 67-year-old female climber while trying to summit Dhaulagiri, the worlds seventh-highest peak. Apparently, Kono just exceeded her limits and lost her strength, he said. Its a real shame. It only takes one misstep. Its really too bad.

Yuichiro Miura, who also conquered the 29,035-foot (8,850-meter) peak when he was 70 and 75, returned to Japan on Wednesday looking triumphant but ready for a rest. He was sympathetic toward an 81-year-old Nepalese climber who on Tuesday abandoned his attempt to climb Everest, and break Miuras record, due to worsening weather. Min Bahadur Sherchan, the Nepalese mountaineer, faced climbing window remaining after delays in getting funding for his own ascent, Miura said. He is to be pitied, said Miura, who had downplayed any talk of a rivalry. Sherchan became the oldest Everest climber in 2008 at age 76 and held the record until Miuras ascent last week. The Nepalese climber said he slipped and fell just above the base camp three days earlier, hurting his ribs, so he was airlifted back to Katmandu, where he saw a doctor. He plans to try again to regain his record, perhaps next year. I still have a few more years to make my attempts. I will try until I reach 84 and then quit, Sherchan said.

UF will only cancel classes and close the campus if there is a real danger, university spokesman Steve Orlando said. He said because UF is about 70 miles from the coast, storms in the past havent hit Gainesville too hard. I feel that UF has a vast number of structures that can withstand hurricane-force winds, said 21-year-old UF English senior Josh Olin. Spranger said it is essential for students to be ready for hurricane season the worst stretch of which occurs from August to October. Follow your instincts and always know you can never be too prepared for a natural disaster, Spranger said. Plan for the worst.

There is a lot of interest within the community to learn about growing vegetables, said Aparna Gazula, commercial horticulture extension agent of the Alachwhere the open house will be held. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Demonstrations about everything from pond management to square-foot vegetable gardening will be available. Classes about canning, attracting pollinators and integrated pest management will be offered free of charge but with limited seating. (The open house can) teach you how to better manage your vegetable insect pests with minimal organic pesticide applications, Gazula said. The open house is intended for people educational programs it offers throughout the year. In the past, the open house has attracted a mix of residents from all over Gainesville, Gazula said. The frost in Gainesville delayed the planting season that typically occurs in March. This means that even though the open house was slightly delayed, now is a good time for the square-foot vegetable garden to be in bloom. Home-grown grilled vegetables go great with any meal, said Tony Lozada, a 19-year-old UF economics junior.Open house hopes to teach residents about gardeningA similar incident occurred last year a different employee was linked to an identity theft ring. at Shands, Blouin said the hospital is taking measures to keep patient information secure. Employees go through criminal background checks and training at least once a year, she said. People are very aware of the laws and the implications of even making a mistake can have, she said. We are asking employees to be vigilant and to report if they feel like somebody is looking at information that they dont need to be looking at. Blouin said a letter has been sent out to patients and parents. UF will also offer fraud resolution services for up to one year. The university really regrets that this happened, and we are going to do our best to help the patients whose information has been affected, Blouin said.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffLaunchin Luncheon LOCAL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterThe City Commission met Wednesday night to discuss amending an already approved process that would allow Butler Plaza to expand by about 150 acres and include an upscale town center. The plan, which would allow buildings up to eight stories high, divides the plaza and incorporates surrounding areas into four subareas. The plan calls for large retailers, such as Walmart and Lowes, to move out of the current strip facing Southwest Archer Road and to migrate to a new complex, slated to occupy the undeveloped area north of the strip toward Southwest 24th Avenue. The current Archer Road strip would become a sort-of town center that would house small retailers and boutiques. The goal for the developments is to achieve a balance of retailers, boutiques and restaurants to best serve Gainesville as a college town and emerging tech center, said Gerry Dedenbach, director of planning and GIS services at Causseaux, Hewett, & Walpole, Inc. The proposed development would be walkable and pedestrianfriendly, he said, with reduced block sizes, more sidewalks and updated parking. Dedenbach showed diagrams of historic U.S. communities to illustrate the type of interconnectivity he hopes to foster through the project. However, Commissioner Thomas Hawkins pitched an amendment that would standardize the block size within the development to less than 2,000 feet. Mayor Ed Braddy described the proposed amendment as a rigid conformity in all four areas. His motion was defeated, and instead, the commission passed a motion to cap the block size within the development at 3,200 square feet. Engineering for the development will begin in the fall, Dedenbach said, and construction is scheduled to begin in January. Once completed, Rebecca Maccardini, a former chairwoman of the International Council of Shopping Centers, said the expansion will enhance Gainesville culture for students and their families. Itll add convenience and experience, which is always important for students, she said. However, Gainesville resident Becky Hart expressed hesitancy about expanding the plaza because she said it could create even more I have in recent years resigned myself to simply avoiding Archer not worth it, she wrote Wednesday in an email to city commissioners. The expansion of Butler Plaza basically doubles that issue. Commissioner Lauren Poe said the project has already been characterized by compromises. I dont think there is anyone in this room that thinks this is the perfect project, he said. Despite the lengthy discussion and compromises, Commissioner Yvonne Hinson-Rawls expressed optimism toward the project. I understand the need to have only attract shoppers but also tourists, she said. Im excited about the possibility.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 Dear Mediocre Advice, Whats the weirdest thing youve ever told a guy? Dear Friend, Penis beauty is in the eye of the person holding your manhood. It depends upon a lot of factors including size, shape, color and if the gardener has been trim thing as a beautiful penis, and a person should never be afraid to say so when one is spotted. Its like complimenting a woman on her breasts. There are a lot of ugly one-eyed monsters out there, so even if one person has expressed their admiration for your penis, trust that your package isnt a complete abomination. If you do have an ugly penis, youll probably be OK, but you will need the proper skills to cancel out your bone machines ugliness. Dear Friend, The friend zone is not forever. This misunderstood zone is not a place where you have no chance of dating or boning the person you want but rather a chance for you to grow on this person who could eventually re-evaluate you and put you in the bone zone. The friend zone has a 75 percent success rate, so do not fear this place or take it for granted. If a girl doesnt want to sleep with a guy, its not because hes her friend and she doesnt want to hurt some imaginary friendship code, but its because shes not sexually inter ested or interested at all. Ive dat ed people who were once in my friend zone and so have others. Since the title friend zone is a little off-putting, Ive come up with more appropriate names: warm ing-up zone, possible friends-withmaybe-one-day-when-Im-reallydrunk zone. If the friend zone was really forever, it would be called its-never-going-to-happen zone. That zone is saved for people who suck, people you legitimate ly do not like or those who have wronged you. There are dozens of zones, and the friend zone is not a bad place to be. Dear Friend, No, laughing about the thought of a fart makes you an exceptional person. Farts are and will always be funny. I once farted from laughing so hard at an imaginary fart. Its a vicious cycle. Even during the most serious situations, if one farts, you must laugh. If youre in the middle of an intense breakup and one of you farts, you have to laugh. Even if youre at a funeral and some one passes gas while bending over the casket to say goodbye one last time, you must laugh. There is some laughing when someone farts. Whether its a past, present, silent, loud, smells like sewage or even an imaginary fart, it is always OK to laugh. This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, While I am fairly proud of my penis, Ive been told it is ugly. Is there such a thing as a pretty penis? They all seem pretty ugly to me. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is the friend zone forever? Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it bad to laugh about farts you havent had yet, but might have in the future like hypothetical farts? Dear Friend, If you think all of this is going to be sexy, youre dead wrong. Lets do this in a countdown form: 5. I want to lick your abs like a rack of ribs. 3. Youre lucky your nickname is Whistle because whistles get blown. 2. Dont touch my seat theres butt sweat on it.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 KATHLEEN BOYLE Avenue WriterArmed with nothing but a guitar, singer-songwriter Tristan Harvey crooned through his set Sunday afternoon at The Jam on West University Avenue. Although he performed alone, Harveys musical talents consumed the acoustics of the outdoor backyard stage as he delivered both covers and original funk, soul, reggae and folk-inspired songs to an intimate, engaged audience. Harvey was one of many performers to take the stage at The Jam during Memorial Day weekend as part of INfest, a Gainesville music and art festival that took place May 25 and 26. Organized by Chris Horrell, Lisa Smith and James McKay a group that refers to itself as the Unindicted Co-Conspirators INfest brought together an eclectic mix of sights and sounds largely representative of local talents who have been contributing to Gainesvilles creative scene for decades. The two-day music festival demonstrated diversity similar to that of Harveys song collection. From the Root Doctors, a Gainesville-staple with music self-described as a tasty blend of old-school blues and psychedelic garage rock, to the Bill Perry Orchestra, an amusing experimental project whose song titles include gems such as Dont Think About Sex in Public Bathrooms, INfest embraced and encouraged avenues of imaginative artistry. The festival also reached out to performers beyond central Floridas borders, including acts such as Nashville blues singer Nicolette Hayford -a highlight of Saturday nights events. The people who have put together the festival have either been playing music, going to shows or actually putting on shows for a long time now, explained McKay, who is also the vocalist of Root Doctors. A lot of the bands that played here this weekend also play at a party thats been going on in Gainesville since in the 70s. Its a three-day party thats held in various locations, called the Boo Party, a kind of a Halloween party. We wanted to have an event here in town that was in the spirit of those. INfest also showcased the work of visual artists Jim Lantz, Catherine Lisle, Bill Perry, Amanda Samuels and members of SAW, the Sequential Artists Workshop, a center for comic book artists. Attendees of INfest could peruse the artwork while nursing a pint of locally-brewed Swamp Head beer and listening to the live performances held inside The Jams newly-expanded stage Smith said that the foundation for the festival was largely based on bringing together musicians and artists who provide inspiration, entertainment and friendship to many in the Gainesville community. We had been tossing around the idea for a festival like this for a while. Putting everything together mostly took place between the last month to month and a half, Smith said. She said diversity was key to this project. (INfest organizer) Chris Horrell really wanted to make sure that we offered something for everybody. From quiet to loud types of music, younger to older and more experienced bands, we wanted to attract a really diverse group of people by providing something for everyone. By putting art into the mix, we were hoping to bring in people who are interested in that as well. Finding the right venue to host criteria was key to INfest. McKay noted that the now-closed Hardback Cafe was once a legendary music venue in Gainesville that housed a wide range of music endeavors throughout the years. It was important that INfest be held in a space that offered similar sensibilities as the Hardback. Although The Jam has been open for less than the festivals purpose. We wanted to put on the show at The Jam because its kind of a different venue in Gainesville, McKay said. They have a lot of variety in the kinds of music that is performed here. They have both indoor and outdoor stages, and the people who run it are good people.INfest Music and Arts Festival makes debut in GainesvilleOnly took over a month to organize

NEW IMAGE PROVES SUC CESSFUL TO ALBUM SALES. BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterWith the popularity of electronic dance music right now, its easy for music lovers to obsess about the new products that DJs and artists are releasing. However, one band is making sure we dont forget about the real meaning of electronic music. Daft Punk, the French electronic music duo, recently released its fourth studio album, Random Access Memories. It hit No. 1 on the United Kingdom album chart, according to BBC Radio. It is becoming the fastest-selling album this year. It became available for purchase Tuesday in the U.S. The album reached the No. 1 spot on the iTunes top albums chart even ahead of the Great Gatsby soundtrack in just a few days. In its 13-track entirety, the collection features loveable songs and mixes in a few genres, but overall it keeps a disco-poppy, old-school feel. Give Life Back to Music, describes the whole album. And the albums a comfortable spot on the airwaves and on iTunes top singles listing. It is pretty catchy, I must say. Overall, I would recommend this album for any techno or pop music lover. It is quite entertaining and keeps the listeners attention by switching up the feel of each song. Lucky, featuring Pharrell Williams and my personal favorite, Instant Crush, featuring Julian Casablancas of The Strokes. I give the album a B plus. 12, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013Matt Sayles/Invision/APIn this photo from April 17, Thomas Bangalter, left, and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, from the internationally recognized music group Daft Punk, pose for a portrait in Los Angeles. Daft Punks latest album: B+ worthy PAIGE KAUFFMANAlligator BloggerThe day you graduate is the day you open new doors of opportunity and close the door on one chapter of your life. It is an inevitable occurrence to move into the real world with the knowledge you obtained and the friends you made an everlasting bond with. Yet the trend I continue to notice among my graduating constituents is a massive slew of breakups occurring like clockwork each year at about this time. Its as if graduation is the cancer of relationships. Everything is going well, and all of the sudden a healthy relationship is deemed worthy of ending its course. The countdown to graduation is simultaneously the time left until the relationships ultimate demise. Relationships end for all kinds of reasons, parties involved. However, a graduation breakup is sometimes the hardest to accept because a perfect relationship potentially has For Nikki Schlanger, a 22-year-old alumna of the University of Central Florida, a graduation breakup ended her two-year relationship with her boyfriend when he graduated a year before her. The idea of a long-distance relationship was too much for both Nikki and her boyfriend as he considered his options for law school out of state. However, she said her boyfriend was basing his decision on where she would be located and not necessarily the best school for him. Eventually, they ended their relationship and went their separate ways. Their lives were continuing along two different paths that seemingly had no promise of ever crossing again. I just cant imagine being in love during that transition, Schlanger said, because I may not have moved to New York City to pursue my dream if I was still with him. The most important aspect I realized about Schlangers experience is that time heals all wounds. She was devastated at the time because not only was she in a healthy relationship, but the relationship wasnt ending on her terms. She wasnt able to fully understand why this had to happen and certainly didnt consider the potential good that could come out of the breakup. Now that she too has graduated and has only her personal obligations to focus on, she is thankful the relationship did eventually come to an end. Sometimes life happens when you just arent ready for it, but you must have the ability to adapt and move forward. If youre going through a breakup right now due to graduation, have faith that everything will be OK. You may even be thankful for this in the long run. Regardless if your professional interests are different or if its just sheer distance itself that seperates you two, now to this relationship ending. Right now, another person isnt holding you back during one of the most transitional periods of your adult life. You are now able to take that job offer in Los Angeles with no hesitation because this is what you want not what someone else does. You dont have to worry about what the other is doing and whom he or she is doing it with like you would in a long-distance relationship. You have a sense of personal freedom and discretion in your life supporter of long-distance relationships, but it isnt for everyone. Its OK for a little bit, but it cant be forever. I could write a book on long-distance relationships, but for those who have yet to experience a healthy one - if any at all - the thought can cause such anxiety and uncertainty with couples. However, I believe a long-distance relationship can only be a temporary solution. If you see yourself with your partner long term, youre going to have to make an ultimate plan to relocate together. But thats the thing; if you dont see yourself with this person because of where they want to live, their professional goals, etc., then a long-distance relationship isnt worth the mental stress and physical longing. Its normal for people to change and grow apart, and sometimes graduation can be the moment when one understands that. The guy you met freshman year may not be the same man he is today. And that is perfectly OK, but dont stay with him if you just dont like who he is now. He will never be the person he once was, and it would be a shame to stick around of the present. Bottom line: If youre not gonna marry em, then get the hell away from em. So what if you have history? So what if that person is all you know? Life is a short journey that cannot be spent with someone who is not the partner for you anymore. Long-distance relationships can work if an effort is made from both parties, and its only a temporary situation until you can ultimately be together.Growing up: Graduation and long-distance relationships dating

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Recruits academic status unclear Spurrier to receive honor Read the story on page 19.Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffJonathon Crawford pitches against Florida Gulf Coast on Feb. 22 at McKethan Stadium. Crawford game of NCAA Regional LANDON WATNICKWith two outs remaining in the bottom of the seventh Sunday against UAB, freshman Kelsey Stewart made one of Floridas biggest defensive plays of the year. Alabama-Birmingham had pinch runner Hailey Glynn at second with Lauren Webster stepping to the plate. Florida right-hander Hannah Rogers gave up a single up the middle the at-bat, advancing Glynn to third. But Glynn taking a risk sprinted for home. Every day in practice we go through game-winners, and Katie (Medina) and I went up to each other and said, Gamewinners, Stewart said. Coach (Tim Walton) always hits balls at us like that in practice. Stewart dove to her right, it from her knees. Her barehanded toss reached Aubree Munros glove as the freshman catcher tagged out Glynn for the win. I thought it was going to go up the middle and then I actually thought [Stewart] over-dove a little, Walton said. She got a great jump off the bat and knocked it down. I was just hoping she wouldnt cause there was no chance of But its a closer play than it looks like because if she hesitates or does the wrong thing, then they have a run. Im really proud of her for being heads-up and come looking for that out. After Stewarts play sealed No. 2 seed UF (57-7) a 1-0 Super Regional victory against Alabama-Birmingham and a lege World Series in program history, the Gators formed a dogpile on top of Rogers on the mound. Stewart is one of Floridas key underclassmen who have fueled the team to prominence in what was billed a rebuilding year during the preseason. Floridas four freshmen in the starting lineup Stewart, Kirsti Merritt, Taylor Schwarz and Taylore Fuller have combined for 28 hits in eight postseason contests. But Waltons young Florida squad will be tested today at 2:30 when it faces seventhseeded Tennessee (49-10) in in Oklahoma City. Thirteen of No. 2 seed Floridas 16 players have never been to the WCWS.

Tomlinson bounced back from arocky stretch of three bogeys in four holes at the end birdies on his second nine and ended the round tied for Floridas lowest score with senior Tyler McCumber at 69 (-1). Tomlinsons 11-shot improvement was the third highest of The difference between playing in the morning and the afternoon can be pretty sigrelease. There wasnt as much wind and I thought the hole locations were a lot easier today. McCumber also took advantage of the conround score and staying atop Floridas team leaderboard with 141 (+1). Despite the improvements from both golfers, their teammates didnt show the same improvement. Senior T.J. Vogel and Tommy Mou each duplicated their ishing at 72 (+2) and 75 (+5), respectively. Sophomore Eric Banks shot one stroke higher in the second round, carding a 73 (+3). The Gators are 14 shots below the matchplay cutoff line of even par at the end of Round 2. After Floridas play during Rounds 1 and 2 and only one round left in stroke play, today might be the last chance for Florida to compete this season. When all three facets of the game are not particularly good, it doesnt matter how hard you try or how smart you play. Youre just not going to get it done.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 TRACK AND FIELD GORDON STREISAND Alligator Writer It took sophomore Marquis Dendy three jumps instead of one to get to Eugene, Ore., for the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Heading into Greensboro, N.C., for the NCAA East Preliminary Round, it was all but assumed Dendy would qualify for nationals in the mens long jump the event in which he is the reigning indoor Southeastern Conference and NCAA champion. He set the nations best mark in the mens long jump at this Relays. However, Dendy missed the cut for his signature event. AfDendy failed to improve on his third jumps distance of 7.31m make the top 12 to qualify. It was an up-and-down day for us, coach Mike Holloway tion. I spoke to our athletes and challenged them to come out here the rest of the weekend and really stick their nose in there and compete. Dendy still had a chance to advance to Eugene in the mens triple jump. He stuck his nose in and competed. competition Dendy redeemed the mens triple jump behind fellow Gator Omar Craddock, Dendy punched his ticket to Oregom. For Marquis to bounce back after a disappointment in the mens long jump, it says a lot about his determination and work ethic, Holloway said. Omar was Omar and he delivered just like he does every meet. Im very pleased with both of their performances.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 19 THE RALLY Following an early exit in the NCAA Regionals in 2012, the Florida softball team was expected to have a down year. Sixty-four games later, the Gators are entering the Womens College World Series as the No. 2 national seed. the WCWS, alligatorSports editors Adam Lichtenstein and Landon Watnick will decide which player was the most important in getting the Gators there. Adam: Clearly the Gators have a lot of good players. If they didnt, they wouldnt be going to Oklahoma City. But the answer to this question is Kelsey Stewart. To understand why, we need to wind the clock back to the beginning of the season. The Gators were panned at the start of the year because they lost a big chunk of their offense. Senior Michelle Moultrie, arguably the greatest player in the programs history, graduated after hitting .385 and knocking 22 homers in four years. Oh, and she stole 83 bases for good measure. Slugger Brittany Schutte left the team after suffering a career-ending injury. Then, right before the NCAA Tournament, UF suspended the Fagan sisters and Cheyenne Coyle. The Gators needed someone to spark the offense. Stewart did exactly that and did it of college softball and never looking back. Landon: Every young team in the postseason needs a seasoned veteran. The Gators have found theirs this year on the mound. Junior righthander Hannah Rogers has been the driving force behind this team in 2013 especially in UFs past eight contests. When Floridas underclassmen made uncharacteristic errors in the NCAA Tournament, Rogers remained cool and collected. This season, Rogers has tallied an ERA of 1.48 15th in the nation. Thanks to her effective pitching, Florida is ranked eighth in the country with an ERA of 1.68. She also has 238 strikeouts, which is 33rd nationally. Her 33 wins, maybe the most impressive number of all, tie for third in the country. On Wednesday, Rogers was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Associations All-American First Team along with sophomore Lauren Haeger. I didnt see Stewart on that list. Rogers may not be the MVP of the press conference (Her most introspective response and knew that my team was behind me.). But shes certainly the main reason why Florida is 57-7, a No. 2 seed in the WCWS and title. Adam: Stewart is a better quote and a better athlete. Have you seen her run? She hits a chopper that youre sure is going to be an easy groundout, and shes already running past the bag by the time the ball And when she gets on base, look out. Shes been incredibly valuable for Florida on the base paths. Her 36 steals are the most in Gators history, breaking the record set by none other than Moultrie. And I wouldnt be surprised if she smashes that record again next year. Stewarts speed has contributed to many of Floridas rallies this season. She turns singles into doubles and scores from second on She even hit an inside-the-park homer earlier in the year. Thats just exciting. Lauren Gibson is the second baseman on the All-American team. She hit .407 with 18 homers. Thats just ridiculous. Gibsons incredible season doesnt diminish what Stewart did for UF. Landon: Adam, I didnt see you at last weekends Super Regional games. While you were soaking up the sun and kayaking at Siesta Key, I was schvitzing my butt off in the Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium press box. I know you didnt catch Rogers consecutive complete games, or her 11 scoreless innings. Sure, Stewart made a fantastic play at the end of Game 2, but she went 1 for 6 at the plate against Alabama-Birmingham. The freshman second baseman hasnt recorded an RBI in the NCAA Tournament. Dont get me wrong Stewart has been pretty good recently. But she hasnt been Floridas best athlete. In two contests facing the Blazers, Rogers fanned 11 batters, walked six and allowed only three runs. This postseason, she has pitched 41 of UFs 54 innings allowing 2.21 earned runs per seven. Against some of the nations best Rogers has been so durable and reliable, No. 2 pitcher Lauren Haeger hasnt even seen the mound during NCAAs, letting her focus more on her hitting. I know this is petty, but after Stewarts gem to seal the UAB series, the Gators formed a dogpile on top of Rogers not Stewart. Adam: Although I may not have been in town this past weekend, I did catch the entire softball season. And while Rogers pitched a lot, she wasnt out there every day like Stewart. Stewart started every game and was consistent throughout the season, leading the team in batting average for the entire year. Her on-base percentage is third on the team. Florida needs people on base solo Haeger bombs dont get the job done. Rogers is great, but even she cant win without runs. So while the Gators dogpiled Rogers, they would have been sitting on their couches watching the WCWS if not for Stewart. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@ alligator.org. Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org. Which player is most responsible for UF softballs success? Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 Landon Watnicktwitter: @landonwatnick Junior has not pitched since win against UGA on May 16 We couldnt schedule any other games, OSullivan said. We tried to simulate practices and scrimmages like they were real. Added Crawford: Weve just been coming out every day, just working hard, practicing just in case we did make a regional. Crawford said he is ready to pitch, but his last three outings have modeled the inconsistency of his season. He pitched well against Georgia in his last start, going 6.2 innings ing up one earned run. And on May 2, he held No. 4 national seed LSU to two runs in a 3-2 loss in Baton Rouge. But between those two starts, he picked up a loss after surrendering four runs to Auburn in four innings of work. Auburn did not get a berth in the NCAA Tournament. What youve done in the past doesnt matter at this point, OSullivan said. But this year has been a different experience for Crawford. The junior spent two seasons in a smaller role for the Gators, with more experienced pitchers like Hudson Randall and Brian Johnson in the rotation ahead of him. Crawford was expected to bear a heavier load in 2013 and anchor a staff Draft. The situation was exasperated when juniors Karsten Whitson and Keenan Kish suffered injuries early in the year. Much like the rest of the team, consistency. He currently has an ERA .90 higher than in his sophomore campaign (3.13). Continue reading this story online at alligatorSports.org.

The exercise will temporarily block access to campus um.

More than 200 participants and observers are scheduled to attend, he said. Volunteers will portray victims and be transported to emergency rooms including ones at UF Health Shands Hospital. UF emergency management coordinator Hal Grieb said once the victims arrive, doctors will respond to simulated injuries designed to mirror the ones that could result from a real scenario. The simulation will include mass casualty incidents, Grieb said, Anything that can range from cuts and scrapes to more serious incidents. The evaluation points for the exercise and the plan itself are based on the public safety plan at the stadium and the comprehensive emergency plan at UF. Looking at community safety, certainly there are many challenges that are faced in the world we live in today, Barber said. These exercises help better prepare us to meet those challenges.UF emergency exercise to congest campusSTATE MCKENZIE DOLLAlligator Contributing WriterThe 2013 hurricane season starts Saturday, and experts are predicting a stormy six months. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations Atlantic hurricane season outlook estimated a 70 percent likelihood of up to 20 named storms, of which up to 11 could become hurricanes including up to six Category 3s, 4s or 5s. The average, according to its website, is 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major ones. This hurricane season is expected to be more severe than past years, said Mike Spranger, a UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences professor in family, youth and community sciences who created a handbook about preparing for natural disasters. UF emergency management coordinator Kenneth Allen said people should prepare by creating emergency evacuation plans, buying supplies and stocking up on at least three days worth of food and water. In the event of a hurricane at UF, Allen said, on-campus residents living in dorms should follow the advice of their housing staff. Off-campus residents should follow protocols The university is constantly working to keep the students, faculty and staff as safe and well-prepared as we can, Allen said.Hurricane season starts this weekend THE INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING.

Melissa Blouin, UF Health Communications director of news and publications, said because the employees job dealt with viewing medical records, any patient at UF Pediatric Primary Care Clinic at Tower Square, now known as UF Health Pediatrics Tower Square, could be at risk.

And living thousands of miles from his mother, Nuru, and his family in Toronto, he can keep his lifestyle hidden.

This is the real strength of Yuichiro Miura, Gota said of his fathers recovery and persistence in traveling another 2 1/2 hours later in the day to reach their camp at 8,000 meters. Miura was a daredevil speed skier in his youth, and skied down Everests South Col in 1970, using a parachute to brake his descent. He also skied down Mount Fuji. Though he says he does not plan another Everest attempt, Miura says he hopes to do plenty of skiing and to live life to the fullest. It isnt just about staying healthy, but its about having goals, he said. You dont need to climb Mount Fuji or travel overseas. Just get out of the house. Enjoy good food.

Yuichiro Miura, who also conquered the 29,035-foot (8,850-meter) peak when he was 70 and 75, returned to Japan on Wednesday looking triumphant but ready for a rest. He was sympathetic toward an 81-year-old Nepalese climber who on Tuesday abandoned his attempt to climb Everest, and break Miuras record, due to worsening weather. Min Bahadur Sherchan, the Nepalese mountaineer, faced climbing window remaining after delays in getting funding for his own ascent, Miura said. He is to be pitied, said Miura, who had downplayed any talk of a rivalry. Sherchan became the oldest Everest climber in 2008 at age 76 and held the record until Miuras ascent last week. The Nepalese climber said he slipped and fell just above the base camp three days earlier, hurting his ribs, so he was airlifted back to Katmandu, where he saw a doctor. He plans to try again to regain his record, perhaps next year. I still have a few more years to make my attempts. I will try until I reach 84 and then quit, Sherchan said.

UF will only cancel classes and close the campus if there is a real danger, university spokesman Steve Orlando said. He said because UF is about 70 miles from the coast, storms in the past havent hit Gainesville too hard. I feel that UF has a vast number of structures that can withstand hurricane-force winds, said 21-year-old UF English senior Josh Olin. Spranger said it is essential for students to be ready for hurricane season the worst stretch of which occurs from August to October.

The open house is intended for people educational programs it offers throughout the year. In the past, the open house has attracted a mix of residents from all over Gainesville, Gazula said. The frost in Gainesville delayed the planting season that typically occurs in March. This means that even though the open house was slightly delayed, now is a good time for the square-foot vegetable garden to be in bloom. Home-grown grilled vegetables go great with any meal, said Tony Lozada, a 19-year-old UF economics junior.Open house hopes to teach residents about gardeningA similar incident occurred last year a different employee was linked to an identity theft ring. at Shands, Blouin said the hospital is taking measures to keep patient information secure.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 5 Alex Catalano / Alligator StaffLaunchin Luncheon LOCAL KELCEE GRIFFISAlligator Staff WriterThe City Commission met Wednesday night to discuss amending an already approved process that would allow Butler Plaza to expand by about 150 acres and include an upscale town center. The plan, which would allow buildings up to eight stories high, divides the plaza and incorporates surrounding areas into four subareas. The plan calls for large retailers, such as Walmart and Lowes, to move out of the current strip facing Southwest Archer Road and to migrate to a new complex, slated to occupy the undeveloped area north of the strip toward Southwest 24th Avenue. The current Archer Road strip would become a sort-of town center that would house small retailers and boutiques. The goal for the developments is to achieve a balance of retailers, boutiques and restaurants to best serve Gainesville as a college town and emerging tech center, said Gerry Dedenbach, director of planning and GIS services at Causseaux, Hewett, & Walpole, Inc. The proposed development would be walkable and pedestrianfriendly, he said, with reduced block sizes, more sidewalks and updated parking. Dedenbach showed diagrams of historic U.S. communities to illustrate the type of interconnectivity he hopes to foster through the project. However, Commissioner Thomas Hawkins pitched an amendment that would standardize the block size within the development to less than 2,000 feet. Mayor Ed Braddy described the proposed amendment as a rigid conformity in all four areas. His motion was defeated, and instead, the commission passed a motion to cap the block size within the development at 3,200 square feet. Engineering for the development will begin in the fall, Dedenbach said, and construction is scheduled to begin in January. Once completed, Rebecca Maccardini, a former chairwoman of the International Council of Shopping Centers, said the expansion will enhance Gainesville culture for students and their families. Itll add convenience and experience, which is always important for students, she said. However, Gainesville resident Becky Hart expressed hesitancy about expanding the plaza because she said it could create even more I have in recent years resigned myself to simply avoiding Archer not worth it, she wrote Wednesday in an email to city commissioners. The expansion of Butler Plaza basically doubles that issue. Commissioner Lauren Poe said the project has already been characterized by compromises. I dont think there is anyone in this room that thinks this is the perfect project, he said. Despite the lengthy discussion and compromises, Commissioner Yvonne Hinson-Rawls expressed optimism toward the project. I understand the need to have only attract shoppers but also tourists, she said. Im excited about the possibility.

10, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 Dear Mediocre Advice, Whats the weirdest thing youve ever told a guy? Dear Friend, Penis beauty is in the eye of the person holding your manhood. It depends upon a lot of factors including size, shape, color and if the gardener has been trimthing as a beautiful penis, and a person should never be afraid to say so when one is spotted. Its like complimenting a woman on her breasts. There are a lot of ugly one-eyed monsters out there, so even if one person has expressed their admiration for your penis, trust that your package isnt a complete abomination. If you do have an ugly penis, youll probably be OK, but you will need the proper skills to cancel out your bone machines ugliness. Dear Friend, The friend zone is not forever. This misunderstood zone is not a place where you have no chance of dating or boning the person you want but rather a chance for you to grow on this person who could eventually re-evaluate you and put you in the bone zone. The friend zone has a 75 percent success rate, so do not fear this place or take it for granted. If a girl doesnt want to sleep with a guy, its not because hes her friend and she doesnt want to hurt some imaginary friendship code, but its because shes not sexually interested or interested at all. Ive dated people who were once in my friend zone and so have others. Since the title friend zone is a little off-putting, Ive come up with more appropriate names: warming-up zone, possible friends-withmaybe-one-day-when-Im-reallydrunk zone. If the friend zone was really forever, it would be called its-never-going-to-happen zone. That zone is saved for people who suck, people you legitimately do not like or those who have wronged you. There are dozens of zones, and the friend zone is not a bad place to be. Dear Friend, No, laughing about the thought of a fart makes you an exceptional person. Farts are and will always be funny. I once farted from laughing so hard at an imaginary fart. Its a vicious cycle. Even during the most serious situations, if one farts, you must laugh. If youre in the middle of an intense breakup and one of you farts, you have to laugh. Even if youre at a funeral and someone passes gas while bending over the casket to say goodbye one last time, you must laugh. There is somelaughing when someone farts. Whether its a past, present, silent, loud, smells like sewage or even an imaginary fart, it is always OK to laugh. This column is provided by Ariel Barnes, a 22-year-old majoring in international studies. Would you like to get some Mediocre Advice? Visit http://mediocreadvicegators.tumblr.com/ask Ariel Barnes Dear Mediocre Advice, While I am fairly proud of my penis, Ive been told it is ugly. Is there such a thing as a pretty penis? They all seem pretty ugly to me. Dear Mediocre Advice, Is the friend zone forever? Dear Mediocre Advice, Is it bad to laugh about farts you havent had yet, but might have in the future like hypothetical farts? Dear Friend, If you think all of this is going to be sexy, youre dead wrong. Lets do this in a countdown form: 5. I want to lick your abs like a rack of ribs. 3. Youre lucky your nickname is Whistle because whistles get blown. 2. Dont touch my seat theres butt sweat on it.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 11 KATHLEEN BOYLE Avenue WriterArmed with nothing but a guitar, singer-songwriter Tristan Harvey crooned through his set Sunday afternoon at The Jam on West University Avenue. Although he performed alone, Harveys musical talents consumed the acoustics of the outdoor backyard stage as he delivered both covers and original funk, soul, reggae and folk-inspired songs to an intimate, engaged audience. Harvey was one of many performers to take the stage at The Jam during Memorial Day weekend as part of INfest, a Gainesville music and art festival that took place May 25 and 26. Organized by Chris Horrell, Lisa Smith and James McKay a group that refers to itself as the Unindicted Co-Conspirators INfest brought together an eclectic mix of sights and sounds largely representative of local talents who have been contributing to Gainesvilles creative scene for decades. The two-day music festival demonstrated diversity similar to that of Harveys song collection. From the Root Doctors, a Gainesville-staple with music self-described as a tasty blend of old-school blues and psychedelic garage rock, to the Bill Perry Orchestra, an amusing experimental project whose song titles include gems such as Dont Think About Sex in Public Bathrooms, INfest embraced and encouraged avenues of imaginative artistry. The festival also reached out to performers beyond central Floridas borders, including acts such as Nashville blues singer Nicolette Hayford -a highlight of Saturday nights events. The people who have put together the festival have either been playing music, going to shows or actually putting on shows for a long time now, explained McKay, who is also the vocalist of Root Doctors. A lot of the bands that played here this weekend also play at a party thats been going on in Gainesville since in the 70s. Its a three-day party thats held in various locations, called the Boo Party, a kind of a Halloween party. We wanted to have an event here in town that was in the spirit of those. INfest also showcased the work of visual artists Jim Lantz, Catherine Lisle, Bill Perry, Amanda Samuels and members of SAW, the Sequential Artists Workshop, a center for comic book artists. Attendees of INfest could peruse the artwork while nursing a pint of locally-brewed Swamp Head beer and listening to the live performances held inside The Jams newly-expanded stage Smith said that the foundation for the festival was largely based on bringing together musicians and artists who provide inspiration, entertainment and friendship to many in the Gainesville community. We had been tossing around the idea for a festival like this for a while. Putting everything together mostly took place between the last month to month and a half, Smith said. She said diversity was key to this project. (INfest organizer) Chris Horrell really wanted to make sure that we offered something for everybody. From quiet to loud types of music, younger to older and more experienced bands, we wanted to attract a really diverse group of people by providing something for everyone. By putting art into the mix, we were hoping to bring in people who are interested in that as well. Finding the right venue to host criteria was key to INfest. McKay noted that the now-closed Hardback Cafe was once a legendary music venue in Gainesville that housed a wide range of music endeavors throughout the years. It was important that INfest be held in a space that offered similar sensibilities as the Hardback. Although The Jam has been open for less than the festivals purpose. We wanted to put on the show at The Jam because its kind of a different venue in Gainesville, McKay said. They have a lot of variety in the kinds of music that is performed here. They have both indoor and outdoor stages, and the people who run it are good people.INfest Music and Arts Festival makes debut in GainesvilleOnly took over a month to organize

NEW IMAGE PROVES SUCCESSFUL TO ALBUM SALES. BROOKE PERRYAvenue WriterWith the popularity of electronic dance music right now, its easy for music lovers to obsess about the new products that DJs and artists are releasing. However, one band is making sure we dont forget about the real meaning of electronic music. Daft Punk, the French electronic music duo, recently released its fourth studio album, Random Access Memories. It hit No. 1 on the United Kingdom album chart, according to BBC Radio. It is becoming the fastest-selling album this year. It became available for purchase Tuesday in the U.S. The album reached the No. 1 spot on the iTunes top albums chart even ahead of the Great Gatsby soundtrack in just a few days. In its 13-track entirety, the collection features loveable songs and mixes in a few genres, but overall it keeps a disco-poppy, old-school feel. Give Life Back to Music, describes the whole album. And the albums a comfortable spot on the airwaves and on iTunes top singles listing. It is pretty catchy, I must say. Overall, I would recommend this album for any techno or pop music lover. It is quite entertaining and keeps the listeners attention by switching up the feel of each song.

Daft Punks latest album: B+ worthy PAIGE KAUFFMANAlligator BloggerThe day you graduate is the day you open new doors of opportunity and close the door on one chapter of your life. It is an inevitable occurrence to move into the real world with the knowledge you obtained and the friends you made an everlasting bond with. Yet the trend I continue to notice among my graduating constituents is a massive slew of breakups occurring like clockwork each year at about this time. Its as if graduation is the cancer of relationships. Everything is going well, and all of the sudden a healthy relationship is deemed worthy of ending its course. The countdown to graduation is simultaneously the time left until the relationships ultimate demise. Relationships end for all kinds of reasons, parties involved. However, a graduation breakup is sometimes the hardest to accept because a perfect relationship potentially has For Nikki Schlanger, a 22-year-old alumna of the University of Central Florida, a graduation breakup ended her two-year relationship with her boyfriend when he graduated a year before her. The idea of a long-distance relationship was too much for both Nikki and her boyfriend as he considered his options for law school out of state. However, she said her boyfriend was basing his decision on where she would be located and not necessarily the best school for him. Eventually, they ended their relationship and went their separate ways. Their lives were continuing along two different paths that seemingly had no promise of ever crossing again. I just cant imagine being in love during that transition, Schlanger said, because I may not have moved to New York City to pursue my dream if I was still with him. The most important aspect I realized about Schlangers experience is that time heals all wounds. She was devastated at the time because not only was she in a healthy relationship, but the relationship wasnt ending on her terms. She wasnt able to fully understand why this had to happen and certainly didnt consider the potential good that could come out of the breakup. Now that she too has graduated and has only her personal obligations to focus on, she is thankful the relationship did eventually come to an end. Sometimes life happens when you just arent ready for it, but you must have the ability to adapt and move forward. If youre going through a breakup right now due to graduation, have faith that everything will be OK. You may even be thankful for this in the long run. Regardless if your professional interests are different or if its just sheer distance itself that seperates you two, now to this relationship ending. Right now, another person isnt holding you back during one of the most transitional periods of your adult life. You are now able to take that job offer in Los Angeles with no hesitation because this is what you want not what someone else does. You dont have to worry about what the other is doing and whom he or she is doing it with like you would in a long-distance relationship. You have a sense of personal freedom and discretion in your life supporter of long-distance relationships, but it isnt for everyone. Its OK for a little bit, but it cant be forever. I could write a book on long-distance relationships, but for those who have yet to experience a healthy one - if any at all - the thought can cause such anxiety and uncertainty with couples. However, I believe a long-distance relationship can only be a temporary solution. If you see yourself with your partner long term, youre going to have to make an ultimate plan to relocate together. But thats the thing; if you dont see yourself with this person because of where they want to live, their professional goals, etc., then a long-distance relationship isnt worth the mental stress and physical longing. Its normal for people to change and grow apart, and sometimes graduation can be the moment when one understands that. The guy you met freshman year may not be the same man he is today. And that is perfectly OK, but dont stay with him if you just dont like who he is now. He will never be the person he once was, and it would be a shame to stick around of the present. Bottom line: If youre not gonna marry em, then get the hell away from em. So what if you have history? So what if that person is all you know? Life is a short journey that cannot be spent with someone who is not the partner for you anymore. Long-distance relationships can work if an effort is made from both parties, and its only a temporary situation until you can ultimately be together.Growing up: Graduation and long-distance relationships dating

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Recruits academic status unclear Spurrier to receive honor Read the story on page 19.Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffJonathon Crawford pitches against Florida Gulf Coast on Feb. 22 at McKethan Stadium. Crawford game of NCAA Regional LANDON WATNICKWith two outs remaining in the bottom of the seventh Sunday against UAB, freshman Kelsey Stewart made one of Floridas biggest defensive plays of the year. Alabama-Birmingham had pinch runner Hailey Glynn at second with Lauren Webster stepping to the plate. Florida right-hander Hannah Rogers gave up a single up the middle the at-bat, advancing Glynn to third. But Glynn taking a risk sprinted for home. Every day in practice we go through game-winners, and Katie (Medina) and I went up to each other and said, Gamewinners, Stewart said. Coach (Tim Walton) always hits balls at us like that in practice. Stewart dove to her right, it from her knees. Her barehanded toss reached Aubree Munros glove as the freshman catcher tagged out Glynn for the win. I thought it was going to go up the middle and then I actually thought [Stewart] over-dove a little, Walton said. She got a great jump off the bat and knocked it down. I was just hoping she wouldnt cause there was no chance of But its a closer play than it looks like because if she hesitates or does the wrong thing, then they have a run. Im really proud of her for being heads-up and come looking for that out. After Stewarts play sealed No. 2 seed UF (57-7) a 1-0 Super Regional victory against Alabama-Birmingham and a lege World Series in program history, the Gators formed a dogpile on top of Rogers on the mound. Stewart is one of Floridas key underclassmen who have fueled the team to prominence in what was billed a rebuilding year during the preseason. Floridas four freshmen in the starting lineup Stewart, Kirsti Merritt, Taylor Schwarz and Taylore Fuller have combined for 28 hits in eight postseason contests. But Waltons young Florida squad will be tested today at 2:30 when it faces seventhseeded Tennessee (49-10) in in Oklahoma City. Thirteen of No. 2 seed Floridas 16 players have never been to the WCWS.

Tomlinson bounced back from arocky stretch of three bogeys in four holes at the end birdies on his second nine and ended the round tied for Floridas lowest score with senior Tyler McCumber at 69 (-1). Tomlinsons 11-shot improvement was the third highest of The difference between playing in the morning and the afternoon can be pretty sigrelease. There wasnt as much wind and I thought the hole locations were a lot easier today. McCumber also took advantage of the conround score and staying atop Floridas team leaderboard with 141 (+1). Despite the improvements from both golfers, their teammates didnt show the same improvement. Senior T.J. Vogel and Tommy Mou each duplicated their ishing at 72 (+2) and 75 (+5), respectively. Sophomore Eric Banks shot one stroke higher in the second round, carding a 73 (+3). The Gators are 14 shots below the matchplay cutoff line of even par at the end of Round 2. After Floridas play during Rounds 1 and 2 and only one round left in stroke play, today might be the last chance for Florida to compete this season. When all three facets of the game are not particularly good, it doesnt matter how hard you try or how smart you play. Youre just not going to get it done.

Crawford took the mound in the Gainesville Regional against Bethune-Cookman and pitched the best game of his career. He tossed and the seventh no-hitter in NCAA Tournament history. He faced the minimum 27 batters the one batter he walked was caught stealing while throwing only 98 pitches.

18, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 TRACK AND FIELD GORDON STREISAND Alligator Writer It took sophomore Marquis Dendy three jumps instead of one to get to Eugene, Ore., for the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships. Heading into Greensboro, N.C., for the NCAA East Preliminary Round, it was all but assumed Dendy would qualify for nationals in the mens long jump the event in which he is the reigning indoor Southeastern Conference and NCAA champion. He set the nations best mark in the mens long jump at this Relays. However, Dendy missed the cut for his signature event. AfDendy failed to improve on his third jumps distance of 7.31m make the top 12 to qualify. It was an up-and-down day for us, coach Mike Holloway tion. I spoke to our athletes and challenged them to come out here the rest of the weekend and really stick their nose in there and compete. Dendy still had a chance to advance to Eugene in the mens triple jump. He stuck his nose in and competed. competition Dendy redeemed the mens triple jump behind fellow Gator Omar Craddock, Dendy punched his ticket to Oregom. For Marquis to bounce back after a disappointment in the mens long jump, it says a lot about his determination and work ethic, Holloway said. Omar was Omar and he delivered just like he does every meet. Im very pleased with both of their performances. With Dendy on board for NCAAs, the Gators will travel to Oregon with 28 athletes the in school history. Fifteen women and 13 men, including three relay squads, NCAA Championships.

THURSDAY, MAY 30, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 19 THE RALLY Following an early exit in the NCAA Regionals in 2012, the Florida softball team was expected to have a down year. Sixty-four games later, the Gators are entering the Womens College World Series as the No. 2 national seed. the WCWS, alligatorSports editors Adam Lichtenstein and Landon Watnick will decide which player was the most important in getting the Gators there. Adam: Clearly the Gators have a lot of good players. If they didnt, they wouldnt be going to Oklahoma City. But the answer to this question is Kelsey Stewart. To understand why, we need to wind the clock back to the beginning of the season. The Gators were panned at the start of the year because they lost a big chunk of their offense. Senior Michelle Moultrie, arguably the greatest player in the programs history, graduated after hitting .385 and knocking 22 homers in four years. Oh, and she stole 83 bases for good measure. Slugger Brittany Schutte left the team after suffering a career-ending injury. Then, right before the NCAA Tournament, UF suspended the Fagan sisters and Cheyenne Coyle. The Gators needed someone to spark the offense. Stewart did exactly that and did it of college softball and never looking back. Landon: Every young team in the postseason needs a seasoned veteran. The Gators have found theirs this year on the mound. Junior righthander Hannah Rogers has been the driving force behind this team in 2013 especially in UFs past eight contests. When Floridas underclassmen made uncharacteristic errors in the NCAA Tournament, Rogers remained cool and collected. This season, Rogers has tallied an ERA of 1.48 15th in the nation. Thanks to her effective pitching, Florida is ranked eighth in the country with an ERA of 1.68. She also has 238 strikeouts, which is 33rd nationally. Her 33 wins, maybe the most impressive number of all, tie for third in the country. On Wednesday, Rogers was named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Associations All-American First Team along with sophomore Lauren Haeger. I didnt see Stewart on that list. Rogers may not be the MVP of the press conference (Her most introspective response and knew that my team was behind me.). But shes certainly the main reason why Florida is 57-7, a No. 2 seed in the WCWS and title. Adam: Stewart is a better quote and a better athlete. Have you seen her run? She hits a chopper that youre sure is going to be an easy groundout, and shes already running past the bag by the time the ball And when she gets on base, look out. Shes been incredibly valuable for Florida on the base paths. Her 36 steals are the most in Gators history, breaking the record set by none other than Moultrie. And I wouldnt be surprised if she smashes that record again next year. Stewarts speed has contributed to many of Floridas rallies this season. She turns singles into doubles and scores from second on She even hit an inside-the-park homer earlier in the year. Thats just exciting. Lauren Gibson is the second baseman on the All-American team. She hit .407 with 18 homers. Thats just ridiculous. Gibsons incredible season doesnt diminish what Stewart did for UF. Landon: Adam, I didnt see you at last weekends Super Regional games. While you were soaking up the sun and kayaking at Siesta Key, I was schvitzing my butt off in the Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium press box. I know you didnt catch Rogers consecutive complete games, or her 11 scoreless innings. Sure, Stewart made a fantastic play at the end of Game 2, but she went 1 for 6 at the plate against Alabama-Birmingham. The freshman second baseman hasnt recorded an RBI in the NCAA Tournament. Dont get me wrong Stewart has been pretty good recently. But she hasnt been Floridas best athlete. In two contests facing the Blazers, Rogers fanned 11 batters, walked six and allowed only three runs. This postseason, she has pitched 41 of UFs 54 innings allowing 2.21 earned runs per seven. Against some of the nations best Rogers has been so durable and reliable, No. 2 pitcher Lauren Haeger hasnt even seen the mound during NCAAs, letting her focus more on her hitting. I know this is petty, but after Stewarts gem to seal the UAB series, the Gators formed a dogpile on top of Rogers not Stewart. Adam: Although I may not have been in town this past weekend, I did catch the entire softball season. And while Rogers pitched a lot, she wasnt out there every day like Stewart. Stewart started every game and was consistent throughout the season, leading the team in batting average for the entire year. Her on-base percentage is third on the team. Florida needs people on base solo Haeger bombs dont get the job done. Rogers is great, but even she cant win without runs. So while the Gators dogpiled Rogers, they would have been sitting on their couches watching the WCWS if not for Stewart. Contact Adam Lichtenstein at alichtenstein@ alligator.org. Contact Landon Watnick at lwatnick@alligator.org. Which player is most responsible for UF softballs success? Adam Lichtensteintwitter: @alichtenstein24 Landon Watnicktwitter: @landonwatnick Junior has not pitched since win against UGA on May 16 We couldnt schedule any other games, OSullivan said. We tried to simulate practices and scrimmages like they were real. Added Crawford: Weve just been coming out every day, just working hard, practicing just in case we did make a regional. Crawford said he is ready to pitch, but his last three outings have modeled the inconsistency of his season. He pitched well against Georgia in his last start, going 6.2 innings ing up one earned run. And on May 2, he held No. 4 national seed LSU to two runs in a 3-2 loss in Baton Rouge. But between those two starts, he picked up a loss after surrendering four runs to Auburn in four innings of work. Auburn did not get a berth in the NCAA Tournament. What youve done in the past doesnt matter at this point, OSullivan said. But this year has been a different experience for Crawford. The junior spent two seasons in a smaller role for the Gators, with more experienced pitchers like Hudson Randall and Brian Johnson in the rotation ahead of him. Crawford was expected to bear a heavier load in 2013 and anchor a staff Draft. The situation was exasperated when juniors Karsten Whitson and Keenan Kish suffered injuries early in the year. Much like the rest of the team, consistency. He currently has an ERA .90 higher than in his sophomore campaign (3.13). Continue reading this story online at alligatorSports.org.
