David Northway said at a press conference that foul play is not suspected, but the cause of Uhres death is unknown and still being investigated. We are keeping it open and active, and we will do everything we cause of death for Mr. Uhre and his family, Northway said. Uhre was last seen leaving the area of Andrews Restaurant on Feb. 2 and was relater. Northway said police are collecting forensic evidence, but because it involves chemical analysis, the results will take time to develop.

About an hour north and 10 months later, there was Jordan Davis. With Gainesville left in the middle, locals are feeling the effects of the death of 17-year-old Davis and the trial of the man involved, Michael Dunn. In November 2012, Davis, from Jacksonville, was riding in a car with three of his friends when Dunn shot into their SUV. Dunn was recently tried and found guilty of attempted second-degree into the car, but the jury could not decide on the murder charge for the death of Davis. For some, the Dunn trial brings back memories of George Zimmermans trial and the death of Trayvon Martin. Sharon Davis, UF director of African-American Studies, said the deaths of Martin and Davis reveal a deeper problem. Its a scary thing that so many people in society are trigger happy, she said. I have a 17-year-old nephew. It could have easily been him. Zimmermans case brought Floridas Stand Your Ground law to the forefront of national discussion.

JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff Writerjglum@alligator.orgAt about 2 and a half minutes, Tuesdays hearing in the Pedro Bravo case might have been its shortest yet. taking depositions is going well, Judge Ysleta McDonald set another hearing for April 22. The trial of Bravo, the 20-year-old former Santa Fe College student accused of killing UF freshman Christian Aguilar in 2012, is due to start Aug. 4. Pretrial hearings are set for July 16. Those are the days Christians dad, Carlos Aguilar, is focusing on. Its a relief to know the date, he said. Hopefully, by the end of August, everyone will know the truth, and everybody will be able to say justice was served. But Tuesdays hearing just served as a check-in on the attorneys progress. In January, defense lawyer Michael Ruppert told the judge that his witnesses numbered more than 100. State Attorney Brian Kramer previously explained the need to travel to collect some of his depositions, and Tuesday he said he has set up dates to do so. With these developments and the announcement of a trial schedule, Aguilar said he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2014Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffPedro Bravo walks in for a case management hearing at the Alachua County Courthouse on Tuesday. Another case management hearing was scheduled for April 22. PEDRO BRAVO Case ASEMurder trial proceedings moving along UFS CAMPUS HELPS. CHRISTIAN COOPERAlligator Contributing WriterLast year was record-setting for Florida tourism, and some ripples have reached the Swamp. More than 94.7 million visitors came to the state in 2013, a number that exceeded the previous high of 91.5 million in 2012, according to a press release from Gov. Rick Scott. It was also a good year for tourism in Gainesville. The city isnt usually regarded as a tourist hot spot beyond people traveling to UF, but John Pricher, the interim director of VisitGainesville, said that is starting to change. Although it is hard to measure, Gainesvilles tourism is steadily growing, Pricher said. Last year Gainesville saw about 1.88 million visitors, compared with the 1.76 million in 2012 and 1.63 million in 2011. The university is Gainesvilles beach, he said, because it draws people to the city and attracts national attention. But once people get here, they realize theres more to do than visit campus. Were not a beach, and we dont have an amusement park, he said. We have to be other markets. VisitGainesvilles role is to expose as many people as possible to nature-based attractions in and around the city such as springs, state parks and nature trails. Daniel Urban, a 21-year-old UF mechanical engineering junior, said he doesnt feel like there are enough options for visitors. I feel like most of the tourism in Gainesville is focused on the partying scene and lacks options for those who want to spend their nights away from clubs, Urban wrote in an email. Areas like Paynes Prairie provide some alternatives, but there arent enough options overall, especially at night. However, UFs Outdoor Adventure Recreation President Nelson Anderson wrote in an email that the city has an extensive park system with enough sites to keep anyone busy for an entire summer. He said the La Chua Trail at Paynes Prairie is one of his favorites. On a sunny day, the trail can look like Disney World its so crowded, he said. Its a 3-mile hike, and you will see more alligators and birds than youve seen in your life if the weather is right. statewide tourism rise OFFICERS FOUND IT ON HIS LAPTOP.

Kenneth Nunn, a Levin College of Law professor, said something needs to be done about the current law. There is this view that it is reasonable to use deadly force against African American males while theyre basically doing nothing, he said. The law symbolically suggests to people that this is acceptable behavior. That is concerning. After the Dunn mistrial, Americans took to Twitter to voice their concerns. Users have been posting pictures with the sarcastic Twitter hashtag #DangerousBlackKids. Awurama Acquah, a 19-yearold UF telecommunication sophomore, said she thinks the hashtag is a brilliant way to discuss how people should stop stereotyping. Young black people are not dangerous. They are normal kids, she said. Davis and his friends had been playing music in their car when Dunn got into an argument with them about the noise level. Dunn then thought he ters reported.

LOCAL JENNA LYONSAlligator Staff Writerjlyons@alligator.orgA Lake Butler man died and three people were injured early Tuesday after a semitruck crashed into a pickup on Interstate 75. At about 1:45 a.m., Ronald W. Sapp, 33, was driving south in a pickup truck in the center lane of I-75 near Archer Road, according to a Florida Highway Patrol media release. The pickup truck moved into the right lane in front of a semitruck then abruptly stopped, causing the semitruck to crash into its back. After the crash, both vehicles ran off of the road, according to the report. The pickup overturned and ended up facing west on its left side. The semi skidded along the shoulder until it crashed into a group of trees, facing south. Authorities pronounced Sapp dead on the scene at about 2 a.m., according to the report. Two passengers were inside the pickup with Sapp. Kristopher Doski, 29, of Ormond Beach, and Michael P. Hammer, 52, of Lake City, were taken to UF Health Shands with serious injuries. The passengers were not wearing seatbelts, according to the report. James A. Gloss, a 62-yearold Longwood resident, was driving the semitruck.

KELSEY MARTINEZAlligator Contributing WriterThe buzz about the decreasing honeybee population has motivated some Floridians to invest in a new hobby. Each year, the nations population of honeybees declines by more than 30 percent. Meanwhile, the number of Floridian beekeepers has nearly tripled in the past decade, with more than 2,700 people currently combating the buzzkill. decline in honeybee health around 2005, said Daniel Schmehl, postdoctoral associate for UFs Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory. The problem is colony collapse disorder the reduced population of adult bees in beehives. Although the ultimate reason for the disorder is uncertain, researchers think pesticides, reduced nutrition, transportation and climate change are possible suspects, Schmehl said. Some Floridians realized the threat to the states agriculture and environment and are choosing to do something about it. Its a good thing that came out of a bad thing, said Dennis Riggs, webmaster for the Florida State Beekeepers Association. A lot of people became concerned when they started hearing warnings that bees were in trouble. Schmehl said the increase in beekeepers has more than doubled the number of Florida bee colonies from approximately 150,000 to about 400,000 in about eight years. However, the increased number of Florida beekeepers and colonies does not ensure proper beekeeping handling and instruction, he said. UFs Entomology and Nematology Department offers a long-term for registered beekeepers. But for newbies, the department hosts the UF Bee College, a program for the general public that teaches individuals how to become better beekeepers. Its focused on education maintaining your bees, starting beekeeping just acquiring those basic skills, Schmehl said. The program, which will be held March 7 8, offers more than 50 training, lecture and hands-on courses over a two-day period. It will take place at the Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience in St. Augustine. Were just making everyone aware of the goodness and importance of bees, he said. They realize its a doable hobby.

ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusA chance encounter for Braden Mattson put the Texas-bred catcher on a one-way ticket to Gainesville. He played his freshman season at Texas Christian, where Chuck Jeroloman, the brother of former Gators catcher Brian Jeroloman, served as a volunteer assistant in 2011. Mattson and Jeroloman stayed in touch as the catcher transferred to San Jacinto College. Eventually, Gators hitting coach Craig Bell paid Mattson a visit and liked what he saw. The courting reaped dividends on Tuesday when Mattsons single in the seventh drove in two runs to extend the Gators late lead, which they would not relinquish. No. 23 Florida (3-1), fueled by the seventh-inning offense, defeated Central Florida (3-1) 5-1 in McKethan Stadium. Hes so ready for this. That kid was born to play baseball. His head is in the game at all the time. He loves it, catcher Taylor Gushue said. I told him before the game, Dude, sometimes Im nervous, and I look at you and Im not nervous anymore. Hes that kind of kid. That calming effect manifested itself in a four-run seventh inning bullpen implosion by Central Florida. After the two teams entered the seventh tied at one, right-hander Joe Marrota walked four batters, including junior Zack Powers for Floridas go-ahead run. The free pass set the stage for Mattson. Florida added one more in the single to shortstop. The Gators sent 10 to the plate in the seventh ning solo home run landing just Lost in the opportunistic offense Ryan Jones/Alligator StaffTaylor Gushue swings at a pitch during Floridas 4-0 win against Maryland on Friday at McKethan Stadium. Gushue hit his and the teams Transfer notches big hit in UFs four-run seventh inning JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynEven though Floridas most anticipated game of the year is in its rear-view mirror, it cannot afford to skip any steps in preparation for Auburn (12-11, 4-8 Southeastern Conference) tonight at 7 in the OConnell Center. Coach Billy Donovan said one of the most challenging parts of the No. 2 Gators (23-2, 12-0 SEC) having one of its best seasons in school history is dealing with contentment in the locker room. We obviously had a week where we played two road games it was two really good wins for our guys, Donovan said. But right now, they dont mean anything as it relates to going into this next game against Auburn. So are we willing to take ourselves all the way to the bottom and realize that were starting off at the bottom and now we obviously have to build and prepare for this next them, and then after the Auburn game are you prepared to go all the way back down to the cellar again and have to prepare and have to go back up? The last time the Gators were ranked Gators face potential trapWOMENsS TENNIsS IAN COHENAlligator Writer@ibcohen5For an in-state rivalry that always draws a large crowd, Gators-Seminoles matches are rarely close. The trend continued Tuesday night. No. 5 Florida (7-1) beat Florida State (5-3) in a 7-0 sweep, improving its record against FSU to 54-1 all time. Freshmen Kourtney Keegan clinched the match with a 6-2, 6-0 decision to give the I thought we were very aggressive, coach Roland Thornqvist said. We hit the ball really well, and were good when were hitting our pace and depth, and our play at the net was executed really well. Florida controlled the pace of the match followed closely by an 8-1 win from Brianna Morgan and Keegan. Belinda Woolcock had the only ace of opponent 6-3 when the doubles point was clinched.

SOFTBALL JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126After two successful years at the plate and in the pitchers circle, Lauren Haeger knows what is expected of her. I dont really have a lot of pre-game jitters anymore, because I know how its going to be and how fast-paced the game is, she said. I know what coach (Tim) Waltons expectations are. I know what the routine is. I know how we do things. And with her best offensive showing of the early season, she lived up to those expectations at the Easton Desert Classic last weekend. The junior earned her second consecutive league honor when she was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday. During Floridas sweep of the UNLV-hosted tournament, Haeger posted a .533 batting Half of her eight hits left the park. Haeger also pitched a complete game against Seattle in Floridas opening matchup in Las Vegas, striking out six batters while drawing only two walks and one earned run in the Gators 8-1 win against the Redhawks. Haeger attributes her success at the plate to her dual-role as a pitcher and a hitter. Its good because I get the pitcher mentality of it and I get the hitter mentality of it, and I think it works in my advantage most of the time, she said. Its good because I can read pitchers spins well. I can see movement just because I do the same thing. Haeger hopes to continue her success when No. 1 Florida (11-0) hosts Jacksonville (5-4) tonight at 6:05. The Gators are 8-0 against the Dolphins in Waltons tenure at Florida, winning the contests by a combined score of 57-6. In its home debut, Florida also hopes to see continued improvement from its three freshmen. Despite starting the season batting .100, boasts a .348 average after posting a teamleading .538 clip at the plate in Las Vegas. Utility player Chelsea Herndon, who has been used mainly as a pinch hitter through bats. Pitcher Delanie Gourley boasts a 4-0 record in the circle, including wins against then-No. 5 Michigan and Minnesota. The left-hander from Lakeside, Calif., boasts a 4.4:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and has allowed only eight earned runs through 22 innings. While McLean and Herndon had a slow start to the season, Haeger saw their potential immediately. They (the freshmen) totally bought into the system right away and they just wanted to start right away, and you can see it in their attitude, Haeger said. They listen to everybody. They just soaked in everything that was thrown their way and so I think that really helped them in the long run.Haeger earns league honor following four-homer weekend

was the stellar debut of right-hander Logan Shore. The 29th-round pick of his home state Minnesota Twins struck out four and allowed three hits in a methodical 5.1 innings. His night, nearly identical to Hudson Randalls collegiate debut against UCF on Feb. 24, 2010, mirhander from Dunwoody, Ga., stymied hitters with his entire Florida career. This time last year, Shore was dealing with the a senior for Coon Rapids (Minn.) High until May in sub-40 degree weather. Less than a year later, he took the mound against a veteran UCF lineup with seven juniors, a senior and just one freshman. Im not going to say I knew he was going to pitch this well tonight, but its not surprising, Gators coach Kevin OSullivan said. We dont go out of state very often. Certainly were not going to go to Coon Rapids, Minnesota, for a right-hander, but there was something special about him. Hes mature. Hes competitive, and hes very talented. Sophomore left-hander Danny Young followed Shores outing of one unearned run with 3.2 scoreless innings to earn the win. UF hosts North Florida tonight at 7 before travelling to Coral Gables for a three-game set against Miami. Floridas two heroes from Tuesdays in-state matchup hail from South Texas and Southeast Minnesota. One player spent 2013 at a junior college while the other at a city that is under a winter storm watch until Thursday. The Gators huddled in the third-base dugout as the home crowd left the stadium after Young could be heard for Shore from his teammates. It felt really good. I got a great group of guys. I couldnt really ask for a better team to play behind me, Shore said. Im looking forward to hopefully keeping it going. the second-best team in the country was more than a year ago on Feb. 4, 2013. Florida lost the next day to unranked SEC heading into the matchup. spots to No. 7 with a 19-3 overall record and just that one conference defeat. Casey Prather, who had just returned from a bruise in his right knee that caused him to miss the two previous games, to road. With Kasey Hill doubtful for Wednesdays matchup due to a groin injury, Donovan said he has to continue to preach the importance of staying focused. The hardest thing right now in regards to that is were dealing with reway in life and understand they have some great opportunities to learn and grow in a lot of different ways, Donovan said. But at the same point, theyre human. Theyre not robots. Theyre not machines. The challenge I always talk to them about is are you prepared today to battle human nature? Human nature says lets take it easy. Scottie Wilbekin said he is most conson and KT Harrell. The two are not only the Tigers leading point scorers on the season, but Denson also leads the SEC averaging 20.9 per game with Harrell just trailing at No. 5 with 19.2. Theyre capable of going off with big nights, both of them, so weve got to do a better job this game on limiting their straight-line drives and just playing better on-ball defense, Wilbekin said of Denson and Harrell. But because only two of the Gators six remaining regular-season opponents have above-.500 records within the league, and with the SEC nearly sewn up, Florida could start implementing freshman Chris Walker and sophomore DeVon Walker more in its rotations to give him helpful playing experience before the postseason. I think for Chris, because our frontcourt for the most part stayed out of foul trouble, there wasnt really a need for him, Donovan said. But I still think those guys could be called upon here on ready to play.

The win was Floridas second straight after a bitter loss to Northwestern at the National Team Indoors on Saturday. However, many of the players credited the loss as being instrumental to their last two wins. I think its good early on to feel that pain of losing and be hungry to never have to feel it again, Janowicz said. So I think it was a really good lesson to learn, especially coming back and winning after that against [Southern California] whos ranked even higher.

About an hour north and 10 months later, there was Jordan Davis. With Gainesville left in the middle, locals are feeling the effects of the death of 17-year-old Davis and the trial of the man involved, Michael Dunn. In November 2012, Davis, from Jacksonville, was riding in a car with three of his friends when Dunn shot into their SUV. Dunn was recently tried and found guilty of attempted second-degree into the car, but the jury could not decide on the murder charge for the death of Davis. For some, the Dunn trial brings back memories of George Zimmermans trial and the death of Trayvon Martin. Sharon Davis, UF director of African-American Studies, said the deaths of Martin and Davis reveal a deeper problem. Its a scary thing that so many people in society are trigger happy, she said. I have a 17-year-old nephew. It could have easily been him. Zimmermans case brought Floridas Stand Your Ground law to the forefront of national discussion.

JULIA GLUMAlligator Staff Writerjglum@alligator.orgAt about 2 and a half minutes, Tuesdays hearing in the Pedro Bravo case might have been its shortest yet. taking depositions is going well, Judge Ysleta McDonald set another hearing for April 22. The trial of Bravo, the 20-year-old former Santa Fe College student accused of killing UF freshman Christian Aguilar in 2012, is due to start Aug. 4. Pretrial hearings are set for July 16. Those are the days Christians dad, Carlos Aguilar, is focusing on. Its a relief to know the date, he said. Hopefully, by the end of August, everyone will know the truth, and everybody will be able to say justice was served. But Tuesdays hearing just served as a check-in on the attorneys progress. In January, defense lawyer Michael Ruppert told the judge that his witnesses numbered more than 100. State Attorney Brian Kramer previously explained the need to travel to collect some of his depositions, and Tuesday he said he has set up dates to do so. With these developments and the announcement of a trial schedule, Aguilar said he can see the light at the end of the tunnel. 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2014Ryan Jones / Alligator StaffPedro Bravo walks in for a case management hearing at the Alachua County Courthouse on Tuesday. Another case management hearing was scheduled for April 22. PEDRO BRAVO C ASEMurder trial proceedings moving along UFS CAMPUS HELPS. CHRISTIAN COOPERAlligator Contributing WriterLast year was record-setting for Florida tourism, and some ripples have reached the Swamp. More than 94.7 million visitors came to the state in 2013, a number that exceeded the previous high of 91.5 million in 2012, according to a press release from Gov. Rick Scott. It was also a good year for tourism in Gainesville. The city isnt usually regarded as a tourist hot spot beyond people traveling to UF, but John Pricher, the interim director of VisitGainesville, said that is starting to change. Although it is hard to measure, Gainesvilles tourism is steadily growing, Pricher said. Last year Gainesville saw about 1.88 million visitors, compared with the 1.76 million in 2012 and 1.63 million in 2011. The university is Gainesvilles beach, he said, because it draws people to the city and attracts national attention. But once people get here, they realize theres more to do than visit campus. Were not a beach, and we dont have an amusement park, he said. We have to be other markets. VisitGainesvilles role is to expose as many people as possible to nature-based attractions in and around the city such as springs, state parks and nature trails. Daniel Urban, a 21-year-old UF mechanical engineering junior, said he doesnt feel like there are enough options for visitors. I feel like most of the tourism in Gainesville is focused on the partying scene and lacks options for those who want to spend their nights away from clubs, Urban wrote in an email. Areas like Paynes Prairie provide some alternatives, but there arent enough options overall, especially at night. However, UFs Outdoor Adventure Recreation President Nelson Anderson wrote in an email that the city has an extensive park system with enough sites to keep anyone busy for an entire summer. He said the La Chua Trail at Paynes Prairie is one of his favorites. On a sunny day, the trail can look like Disney World its so crowded, he said. Its a 3-mile hike, and you will see more alligators and birds than youve seen in your life if the weather is right. statewide tourism rise OFFICERS FOUND IT ON HIS LAPTOP.

Each year, the nations population of honeybees declines by more than 30 percent. Meanwhile, the number of Floridian beekeepers has nearly tripled in the past decade, with more than 2,700 people currently combating the buzzkill. decline in honeybee health around 2005, said Daniel Schmehl, postdoctoral associate for UFs Honey Bee Research and Extension Laboratory. The problem is colony collapse disorder the reduced population of adult bees in beehives. Although the ultimate reason for the disorder is uncertain, researchers think pesticides, reduced nutrition, transportation and climate change are possible suspects, Schmehl said. Some Floridians realized the threat to the states agriculture and environment and are choosing to do something about it. Its a good thing that came out of a bad thing, said Dennis Riggs, webmaster for the Florida State Beekeepers Association. A lot of people became concerned when they started hearing warnings that bees were in trouble. Schmehl said the increase in beekeepers has more than doubled the number of Florida bee colonies from approximately 150,000 to about 400,000 in about eight years. However, the increased number of Florida beekeepers and colonies does not ensure proper beekeeping handling and instruction, he said.

ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusA chance encounter for Braden Mattson put the Texas-bred catcher on a one-way ticket to Gainesville. He played his freshman season at Texas Christian, where Chuck Jeroloman, the brother of former Gators catcher Brian Jeroloman, served as a volunteer assistant in 2011. Mattson and Jeroloman stayed in touch as the catcher transferred to San Jacinto College. Eventually, Gators hitting coach Craig Bell paid Mattson a visit and liked what he saw. The courting reaped dividends on Tuesday when Mattsons single in the seventh drove in two runs to extend the Gators late lead, which they would not relinquish. No. 23 Florida (3-1), fueled by the seventh-inning offense, defeated Central Florida (3-1) 5-1 in McKethan Stadium. Hes so ready for this. That kid was born to play baseball. His head is in the game at all the time. He loves it, catcher Taylor Gushue said. I told him before the game, Dude, sometimes Im nervous, and I look at you and Im not nervous anymore. Hes that kind of kid. That calming effect manifested itself in a four-run seventh inning bullpen implosion by Central Florida. After the two teams entered the seventh tied at one, right-hander Joe Marrota walked four batters, including junior Zack Powers for Floridas go-ahead run. The free pass set the stage for Mattson. Florida added one more in the single to shortstop. The Gators sent 10 to the plate in the seventh ning solo home run landing just Lost in the opportunistic offense Ryan Jones/Alligator StaffTaylor Gushue swings at a pitch during Floridas 4-0 win against Maryland on Friday at McKethan Stadium.

Coach Billy Donovan said one of the most challenging parts of the No. 2 Gators (23-2, 12-0 SEC) having one of its best seasons in school history is dealing with contentment in the locker room. We obviously had a week where we played two road games it was two really good wins for our guys, Donovan said. But right now, they dont mean anything as it relates to going into this next game against Auburn. So are we willing to take ourselves all the way to the bottom and realize that were starting off at the bottom and now we obviously have to build and prepare for this next them, and then after the Auburn game are you prepared to go all the way back down to the cellar again and have to prepare and have to go back up? The last time the Gators were ranked Gators face potential trapWOMENS TENNIS IAN COHENAlligator Writer@ibcohen5For an in-state rivalry that always draws a large crowd, Gators-Seminoles matches are rarely close. The trend continued Tuesday night. No. 5 Florida (7-1) beat Florida State (5-3) in a 7-0 sweep, improving its record against FSU to 54-1 all time. Freshmen Kourtney Keegan clinched the match with a 6-2, 6-0 decision to give the I thought we were very aggressive, coach Roland Thornqvist said. We hit the ball really well, and were good when were hitting our pace and depth, and our play at the net was executed really well. Florida controlled the pace of the match followed closely by an 8-1 win from Brianna Morgan and Keegan. Belinda Woolcock had the only ace of opponent 6-3 when the doubles point was clinched. I think were improving a lot, especially this semester, Woolcock said of the chemistry she has developed with Oyen. I feel like our relationship on the court has gotten a lot better each match.

14, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2014 Alligator File PhotoLauren Haeger prepares to swing at the plate during Floridas 6-5 win against Tennessee on March 15, 2013, at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. SOFTBALL JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126After two successful years at the plate and in the pitchers circle, Lauren Haeger knows what is expected of her. I dont really have a lot of pre-game jitters anymore, because I know how its going to be and how fast-paced the game is, she said. I know what coach (Tim) Waltons expectations are. I know what the routine is. I know how we do things. And with her best offensive showing of the early season, she lived up to those expectations at the Easton Desert Classic last weekend. The junior earned her second consecutive league honor when she was named the Southeastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday. During Floridas sweep of the UNLV-hosted tournament, Haeger posted a .533 batting Half of her eight hits left the park. Haeger also pitched a complete game against Seattle in Floridas opening matchup in Las Vegas, striking out six batters while drawing only two walks and one earned run in the Gators 8-1 win against the Redhawks. Haeger attributes her success at the plate to her dual-role as a pitcher and a hitter. Its good because I get the pitcher mentality of it and I get the hitter mentality of it, and I think it works in my advantage most of the time, she said. Its good because I can read pitchers spins well. I can see movement just because I do the same thing. Haeger hopes to continue her success when No. 1 Florida (11-0) hosts Jacksonville (5-4) tonight at 6:05. The Gators are 8-0 against the Dolphins in Waltons tenure at Florida, winning the contests by a combined score of 57-6. In its home debut, Florida also hopes to see continued improvement from its three freshmen. Despite starting the season batting .100, boasts a .348 average after posting a teamleading .538 clip at the plate in Las Vegas. Utility player Chelsea Herndon, who has been used mainly as a pinch hitter through bats. Pitcher Delanie Gourley boasts a 4-0 record in the circle, including wins against then-No. 5 Michigan and Minnesota. The left-hander from Lakeside, Calif., boasts a 4.4:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and has allowed only eight earned runs through 22 innings. While McLean and Herndon had a slow start to the season, Haeger saw their potential immediately. They (the freshmen) totally bought into the system right away and they just wanted to start right away, and you can see it in their attitude, Haeger said. They listen to everybody. They just soaked in everything that was thrown their way and so I think that really helped them in the long run.Haeger earns league honor following four-homer weekend

was the stellar debut of right-hander Logan Shore. The 29th-round pick of his home state Minnesota Twins struck out four and allowed three hits in a methodical 5.1 innings. His night, nearly identical to Hudson Randalls collegiate debut against UCF on Feb. 24, 2010, mirhander from Dunwoody, Ga., stymied hitters with his entire Florida career. This time last year, Shore was dealing with the a senior for Coon Rapids (Minn.) High until May in sub-40 degree weather. Less than a year later, he took the mound against a veteran UCF lineup with seven juniors, a senior and just one freshman. Im not going to say I knew he was going to pitch this well tonight, but its not surprising, Gators coach Kevin OSullivan said. We dont go out of state very often. Certainly were not going to go to Coon Rapids, Minnesota, for a right-hander, but there was something special about him. Hes mature. Hes competitive, and hes very talented. Sophomore left-hander Danny Young followed Shores outing of one unearned run with 3.2 scoreless innings to earn the win. UF hosts North Florida tonight at 7 before travelling to Coral Gables for a three-game set against Miami. Floridas two heroes from Tuesdays in-state matchup hail from South Texas and Southeast Minnesota. One player spent 2013 at a junior college while the other at a city that is under a winter storm watch until Thursday. The Gators huddled in the third-base dugout as the home crowd left the stadium after Young could be heard for Shore from his teammates. It felt really good. I got a great group of guys. I couldnt really ask for a better team to play behind me, Shore said. Im looking forward to hopefully keeping it going. the second-best team in the country was more than a year ago on Feb. 4, 2013. Florida lost the next day to unranked SEC heading into the matchup. spots to No. 7 with a 19-3 overall record and just that one conference defeat. Casey Prather, who had just returned from a bruise in his right knee that caused him to miss the two previous games, to road. With Kasey Hill doubtful for Wednesdays matchup due to a groin injury, Donovan said he has to continue to preach the importance of staying focused. The hardest thing right now in regards to that is were dealing with reway in life and understand they have some great opportunities to learn and grow in a lot of different ways, Donovan said. But at the same point, theyre human. Theyre not robots. Theyre not machines. The challenge I always talk to them about is are you prepared today to battle human nature? Human nature says lets take it easy. Scottie Wilbekin said he is most conson and KT Harrell. The two are not only the Tigers leading point scorers on the season, but Denson also leads the SEC averaging 20.9 per game with Harrell just trailing at No. 5 with 19.2. Theyre capable of going off with big nights, both of them, so weve got to do a better job this game on limiting their straight-line drives and just playing better on-ball defense, Wilbekin said of Denson and Harrell. But because only two of the Gators six remaining regular-season opponents have above-.500 records within the league, and with the SEC nearly sewn up, Florida could start implementing freshman Chris Walker and sophomore DeVon Walker more in its rotations to give him helpful playing experience before the postseason. I think for Chris, because our frontcourt for the most part stayed out of foul trouble, there wasnt really a need for him, Donovan said. But I still think those guys could be called upon here on ready to play.

I was a little nervous to play [the] one [position], but I think now after competing against really good teams and getting some huge wins and climbing up the Janowicz was the No. 11 ranked singles player in the nation last week, and her ranking should continue to rise. Really, most of it is on the mental side, not necessarily just forehands and backhands, Thornqvist said. [Olivia] looks more comfortable, more day or close to it. next singles match 6-3, 6-0, followed by wins in straight sets from Keegan, Oyen and Stojic. with a 6-4, 4-6, 1-0 (10-5) victory. The win was Floridas second straight after a bitter loss to Northwestern at the National Team Indoors on Saturday. However, many of the players credited the loss as being instrumental to their last two wins. I think its good early on to feel that pain of losing and be hungry to never have to feel it again, Janowicz said. So I think it was a really good lesson to learn, especially coming back and winning after that against [Southern California] whos ranked even higher. Florida travels to the West Coast to play St. Marys on Saturday and No. 4 Stanford on Sunday. The back end of the four-game Missouri. I told [the team] in the locker room were our job now is to just have great legs for the weekend, Thornqvist said. Were going to make sure we have full strength when we go out there and well see what we can do.
