ANA ROJOAlligator Contributing WriterSiblings share a lot of things: parents, a home, genetics and sometimes even a school. Today is National Siblings Day a day to honor siblings and their never-ending relationships. Brothers and sisters everywhere will blow up social media with the hashtag #nationalsiblingsday. Twins Erin and Dennis Boyle, both 20, said they enjoy having family at UF. more, jokingly admitted to liking the fact he can keep an eye on Erin, a nursing sophomore. Hes protective sometimes, so thats really annoying, Erin said. Both remember the day they received their acceptance letters to UF, but for a brief moment that day, it seemed as though Erin would be the only Gator. Dennis said it got a little chaotic in the time between his sisters acceptance and congratulations message, he said he immediately just Tebowed. Erin said her family wasnt sure her brother would get accepted. I was almost considering going to FSU if he was gonna go there, she said, even though I really wanted to go to UF, but hes kind of important in my life. Another set of siblings, Morgan and Jordan Billinger, share the campus as well. Both feel like they have a piece of home here, but Morgan, a 19year-old UF speech therapy sophomore, feels there is also a bit of competition between them. We are both in the college of Public Health and Health Professions, so were competing but its more like a brotherly-sisterly rivalry versus something more serious, Morgan wrote in an interview. Jordan, a 21-year-old UF public health junior, said he prefers to have family here, especially when he was an underclassman. Sometimes school can get really stressful, and you may even get homesick, Jordan said. If your sibling goes here with you, there is always someone in your corner providing a support system.In all kinds of weather, UF siblings stick together ITS A REQUIREMENT FOR UF ARMY ROTC STUDENTS. EMILY JULSONAlligator Contributing WriterAt 5:30 a.m. when most students were in bed, some ROTC Gators were taking a plunge. The UF Army ROTC program conducted its annual Combat Water Survival Training on Wednesday morning at the Florida Pool, where cadets tested their survival skills in the water with full equipment in tow. Capt. Nathalie Conley, an assistant professor of military science in the UF Army ROTC department, said the test is a commissioning requirement for all UF Army ROTC students. It requires students to complete minutes of treading water and a 15-meter swim. It also includes a blindfolded 3-meter drop in the water with their equipment and a drop in the deep end of the pool where they have to take off all the gear without surfacing, Conley said. This training is generally not harder than other programs, except for those who dont know how to swim, she said. One cadet had to be rescued by the lifeguard during the exercise. Lately, there has been a turn in the Army where people arent up to stuff on their swimming skills or their aquatic abilities, said cadet Tyler Schaper, a 22-year-old UF geography senior. This training just gets them used to swimming and dealing with water problems. Conley said ROTC provides free lessons to students who are struggling with swimming.ROTC Gators train, are tested in waterCAMPUS

HELL DRIVE A HOTDOG CAR LIKE HIS SISTER DID. CHRISTINE ALVAREZAlligator Contributing WriterTwo siblings will soon share more than an alma mater: Theyll share a 27-foot-long hotdog car experience. Silvana Smud, a UF alumna who graduated as a telecommunication major in 1999, got the job of driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile across the country for a full year after graduation. 12 drivers are chosen out of more than 2,000 applicants every year, she said. The genes must run in the family, because Smuds younger brother, Spencer Smud, also got the job. I had such an amazing experience with this job and I always wanted Spencer to have the same experience, Silvana said. Spencer, a 23-year-old UF recreation, parks and tourism senior, will graduate in May and start driving the Wienermobile in June. The job is a one-year contract that involves driving across the country and hitting three cities a said. Drivers are known as Hotdoggers. When she had the job, a then 7-year-old Spencer would come out to the events and help his sister. It was a part of his childhood. ing out Im going to have one of the best jobs that a college graduate could ever have, Spencer said. People saw me literally do my happy dance. on June 1 and go through a twoweek training known as Hotdog High. He will graduate as part of Hotdogger Class 27. His sister was in Class 12. Silvana said their family is also ecstatic about their shared Hotdogger status. Just the fact of having two Hotdoggers come out of Brandon, Florida, she said. They are just thrilled. The Smud siblings said the shared experience is extremely rare and hope that it will bring them closer. USA Today quoted that statistically, its easier to become president of the United States than to be chosen as an Oscar Mayer Hotdogger, she said. me, given the large number of Jewish students here, she said. Last June, Swedroe started coordinating with Gator Dining to get kosher options in UFs dining halls this year to better meet the needs of the student population. A lot of people keep kosher for Passover even if they dont keep kosher for the rest of the year, she said. Jaron Mandel, a 21-year-old UF accounting senior, said he thinks the option is going to work well for a lot of students. Im happy that theyre doing it, he said. Im sure it will be the start of something really nice. Jonathan Josephf, a 19-yearold UF biology sophomore, sher options on campus last year with his meal plan. Id have to buy matzo at Publix and just make make matzo and cream cheese sandwiches and PB&Js on my own, he said. Josephf, who still has a meal plan, said he thinks the partnership with Hillel is very progressive, and he plans to take advantage of it. Kosher offerings include hard-boiled eggs, tuna salad, fruit and salad. Gator Dining is also exploring the option of serving kosher yogurt and sausage, Swedroe said. Passover-friendly options will be marked with kosher symbols, she said. The food will be prepared in disposable pans and served on disposable plates so it doesnt touch anything that has prepared or served bread products. In addition to the strictly kosher foods served, kosherstyle options containing nobread products such as salmon prepared with no breadcrumbs will also be available. Its hard if youre living on campus, Swedroe said. I want to make it easier.Kosher dining hall food will be prepared, served separately 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2014 Courtesy to the AlligatorSilvana and Spencer Smud stand in front of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile after Silvana got the job of driving it across the country when she graduated in 1999.

LOCAL ALYSSA AGUEROAlligator Contributing WriterDrinks are coming. 2nd Street Speakeasy, located at 21 SW Second St., unveiled a Game of Thrones-themed menu Friday before the start of season four. General manager T.J. Talmieri said the bar staff has been planning Were all big fans of the show and kind of nerdy, he said. Talmieri said its obvious how some of the names relate to the show, such as The Red Wedding, which is inspired by a massacre in season three and contains bourbon, hibiscus tea and averna. Kelly Micheau, a bartender at the speakeasy, said she and Talmieri tried to think of ways to represent the characters through drinks. It wasnt like we made a Cosmo and named it after Khaleesi, she said, referring to a main character in the show. Micheau said their themed menu has drawn positive reactions because of the shows popularity. Its awesome we have the creative ability to do that, she said. In the past, the bar has featured other themed menus based on hit shows like Mad Men and Breaking Bad. Talmieri said it is open to the idea of another one in the future. Its not planned out yet, but these things tend to go pretty well, Talmieri said. Afagh Zadeh, a 21-year-old UF architecture senior, said she is a frequent customer at the bar and thinks a themed menu like this adds hype to a night out.

Its a fantastic idea; after all, nearly 2,000 Americans ages 18 to 24 die each year from alcohol-related injuries. The annual screenings are hosted by a mental-health and substance-abuse resources to be made readily available to those who need it. UF, however, is not participating, which is pretty surprising. for students struggling with alcohol problems and students who know people struggling with alcohol. The schools medical amnesty policy protects students from disciplinary action if they suspect a friend has alcohol poisoning or has overdosed on drugs and call 911. Counseling is available at no charge to students in the UF Counseling & Wellness Center, and GatorWell has educational information on its website about alcohol abuse. ing a single anti-alcohol-abuse idea, the anonymous screenings would be a way for mental-health providers to connect with students who may be at risk. In fact, a screening day (or multiple screening days) may be the missing link in alcoholism prevention that UF needs. GatorWell offers proactive resources for stopping underage drinking and alcohol abuse, and the CWC offers solutions for people whove realized they have a problem. But how can the university help students identify the fact that they may have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol? Because were immersed in a culture that normalizes extreme alcohol consumption, many of us have no way of knowing if our alcohol habits are unhealthy. Young people who are just becoming exposed to practically limitless amounts of alcohol need ways to determine whether or not theyre truly drinking responsibly and if habitual alcohol abuse is a symptom of a deeper problem. Thats why anonymous screenings work. According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, screenings have become a mainstay of todays preventive health care. Screening is not the same as diagnostic testing, which esis used to identify people who are likely to have a disorder, as determined by their responses to certain key questions, the may be advised to undergo more detailed diagnostic testing to Anonymous screenings, then, offer a nonthreatening way for students to become more aware of their relationships with drinking. We hope GatorWell will consider participating in future college National Alcohol Screening Days to raise awareness about alcohol-related mental health issues and direct at-risk students to the right resources to prevent further problems. 64 TOTAL VOTES16% YES 84% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgWednesdays question: Have you tried e-cigarettes?

Sanesha Taylor is a black, homeless mother of two whose mugshot went viral, complete with tears running like rivers off her cheeks. She was arrested for leaving her two children, aged 6 months and 2 years, while she and shes facing trial for a felony. The only way shes been able to pay legal fees so far is through online donations. She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously, not getting the job. So its just a sad situation, Connecticut TV station WFSB. It goes without saying its not a good idea to leave your kids locked in a hot car. But are those conditions much different than the ones theyd face on the streets? This woman was homeless, trying to make a better life for her kids and herself by getting a job. Its not as if she had money for a babysitter. also confessed to raping his 3-year-old daughter in 2009. The case recently went viral after it became public when compensatory and punitive damages for the sexual instead of jail time because the judge felt he would not fare well in prison. Of course, its unclear who exactly does fare well in prison, though looking at this dichotomy does make one thing certain: The two-tiered criminal justice system is alive and kicking. On one hand, you have a woman getting charged with a felony for going to a job interview to make a better life for herself. On the other, you have a rapist getting a slap on the wrist for molesting his own 3-year-old daughter. ards stems from the stereotype that people who raped children are treated worse than other inmates in prison. Im not sure if this is true, having never been in prison myself, but there are options other than letting him off with probation. An inmate can be placed in protective care alone if his or her safety is threatened. The idea that he wouldnt fare well is no excuse for his sentence. The juxtaposition of these cases is a clear-cut reminder of the dual criminal justice systems in the U.S. In fact, people of color make up more than 60 percent of the an advocacy group for prison reform. One in every three black men will likely go to prison in his lifetime, compared to one in 17 white men. Not to mention that the U.S. has the largest prison population in the world.

OLIVIA MUENTERAvenue WriterThe Gainesville Fashion Week team hosted its annual night of runway fashion on Saturday, debuting to an audience of about 500 people. From swimwear to menswear, the show displayed a wide range of styles and talent. the runway was South Florida-based ZannieKini, a line of barely-there swimwear for young women. The playful bikinis ranged from solid, bright colors to tie-dye patterns with interesting straps as well as mix-andmatch tops and bottoms highlighting the collection.

The collection, a collaboration between Ni and designer David Tonnelier, featured womenswear and menswear in an assortment of colors and textures, and intricate cutout details were a staple throughout the collection. With strong 90s themes, holographic details and mesh fabrics highlighting the pieces, YAYA was on trend, while still remaining fresh and unique. Ni said she was inspired by the idea of repurposing clothing. To be able to repurpose a piece of clothing that makes it unique and one of a kind has always been an inspiration in and of itself, Ni said. YAYA was followed by a collection from Francine Elizabeth, who was showing her designs for the fourth time at GFW. Described as having a sleek, aesthetic appeal to women in their early 20s, Francine Elizabeths designs were classic silhouettes with visual interest added by different fabrics and textures. A standout piece was a sleeveless peplum top with velvet paneling. The fourth collection featured was The 1oz Project and Mikho, a menswear line. The designers described the collection as a labor of love and noted the animal within you as inspiration. The animal theme was apparent throughout the collection, with giraffe and python among some of the prints. The models were accessorized with body paint and fur, emphasizing the animalistic, wild theme. night came from Julia Chew and her Xiaolin line.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2014 Rogers struck out four batters in her 17th victory of the season three hits on the night, Walton thought the Gators made plays when they needed to. On offense, we got a couple good hits, Walton said. Schwarz got a really nice one and Baileys pinch hit was really clutch. In the circle, Hannah Rogers earned her 17th win of the season after throwing her 13th complete game this season. The Lake Wales native gave four batters to bring her total to 99 on the season. Hannah was the biggest difference, Walton said. I mean, she had some good stuff tonight, really made pitches when she had to. She gave up a couple walks, but really got on some hands, got some balls off the end of the bat and really commanded the zone. Florida, now riding a fourgame win streak, will look to keep its momentum going into non-conference matchups against Florida A&M on Friday and North Carolina State on Saturday. Were playing, and I think thats important, Walton said. Were not just going about practice and doing intersquads. At the end of the day, the most important part for our players is just to stay in shape and keep their eyes and their timing right for the next series we have to play. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. SOFT, from page 15 SOPHOMORE IS STARTING AT CORNERBACK. MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Writer@Morgan_MoriartyIts not easy to get better when youre already one of the most talented cornerbacks in the nation. Thats what sophomore Vernon Hargreaves III is facing in 2014. Even after recording three interceptions and 11 pass breakups as a freshman, he has some ideas on how to improve. I just need to be a better leader, the Tampa native said. A lot of guys are looking up to me now, a lot of freshman corners we have now. Just being a better leader and staying on top of my game. Hargreaves is setting an example for the secondary, which is reloading this season to Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy and Jaylen Watkins. True freshmen Duke Dawson and Jalen Hargreaves. Hargreaves knows what its like to have high expectations in year one. Youve just got to focus. Focus on what you can do because its hard and coming at you fast, especially with the up-tempo offense we have, he said. Everything is faster than what it usually goes. I tell them to be focused. Everything else will take care of itself. Hargreaves father, Vernon Jr., is the current linebackers coach at Houston. Prior to Houston, he coached defensive ends and special teams at USF for three seasons and was on Connecticuts staff for 13 years. Growing up as a coachs son helped shape Hargreaves into the player he is today. Ive been around football for as long as I can remember, Hargreaves said. Being around, when my dad coached at Miami, I was around all those great players like Ed Reed, Sean Taylor. I was around all them. I remember how hard they used to work and compete. I took that from them. A professional opportunity for defensive cient players under coach Will Muschamp and defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson have succeeded at the next level. Some notables include Baltimore Raven Matt Elam, Jacksonville Jaguar Josh Evans and Roberson and Purifoy. Coach Muschamp and Coach T-Rob know a lot of players, Muschamps coached in the league. They know what its like and our defense is based on a NFL scheme, Hargreaves said. (Former defensive coordinator) Dan Quinn is at the Seahawks now, he coached last year, he knows a lot of the stuff that we do. We base a lot of our stuff off of what he does, so its just a great opportunity. Saturday marks Floridas annual Orange and Blue Debut, a chance to give fans a glimpse of things to come for the season. The All-SEC corner knows a thing or two about making a Coach Muschamp is kind of emphasizing Were just going to go out there, have fun show a lot of effort, a lot of enthusiasm, try to execute as best as we can.

ANA ROJOAlligator Contributing WriterSiblings share a lot of things: parents, a home, genetics and sometimes even a school. Today is National Siblings Day a day to honor siblings and their never-ending relationships. Brothers and sisters everywhere will blow up social media with the hashtag #nationalsiblingsday. Twins Erin and Dennis Boyle, both 20, said they enjoy having family at UF. more, jokingly admitted to liking the fact he can keep an eye on Erin, a nursing sophomore. Hes protective sometimes, so thats really annoying, Erin said. Both remember the day they received their acceptance letters to UF, but for a brief moment that day, it seemed as though Erin would be the only Gator. Dennis said it got a little chaotic in the time between his sisters acceptance and congratulations message, he said he immediately just Tebowed. Erin said her family wasnt sure her brother would get accepted. I was almost considering going to FSU if he was gonna go there, she said, even though I really wanted to go to UF, but hes kind of important in my life. Another set of siblings, Morgan and Jordan Billinger, share the campus as well. Both feel like they have a piece of home here, but Morgan, a 19year-old UF speech therapy sophomore, feels there is also a bit of competition between them. We are both in the college of Public Health and Health Professions, so were competing but its more like a brotherly-sisterly rivalry versus something more serious, Morgan wrote in an interview. Jordan, a 21-year-old UF public health junior, said he prefers to have family here, especially when he was an underclassman. Sometimes school can get really stressful, and you may even get homesick, Jordan said. If your sibling goes here with you, there is always someone in your corner providing a support system.In all kinds of weather, UF siblings stick together ITS A REQUIREMENT FOR UF ARMY ROTC STUDENTS. EMILY JULSONAlligator Contributing WriterAt 5:30 a.m. when most students were in bed, some ROTC Gators were taking a plunge. The UF Army ROTC program conducted its annual Combat Water Survival Training on Wednesday morning at the Florida Pool, where cadets tested their survival skills in the water with full equipment in tow. Capt. Nathalie Conley, an assistant professor of military science in the UF Army ROTC department, said the test is a commissioning requirement for all UF Army ROTC students. It requires students to complete minutes of treading water and a 15-meter swim. It also includes a blindfolded 3-meter drop in the water with their equipment and a drop in the deep end of the pool where they have to take off all the gear without surfacing, Conley said. This training is generally not harder than other programs, except for those who dont know how to swim, she said. One cadet had to be rescued by the lifeguard during the exercise. Lately, there has been a turn in the Army where people arent up to stuff on their swimming skills or their aquatic abilities, said cadet Tyler Schaper, a 22-year-old UF geography senior. This training just gets them used to swimming and dealing with water problems. Conley said ROTC provides free lessons to students who are struggling with swimming.ROTC Gators train, are tested in waterCAMPUS

HELL DRIVE A HOTDOG CAR LIKE HIS SISTER DID. CHRISTINE ALVAREZAlligator Contributing WriterTwo siblings will soon share more than an alma mater: Theyll share a 27-foot-long hotdog car experience. Silvana Smud, a UF alumna who graduated as a telecommunication major in 1999, got the job of driving the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile across the country for a full year after graduation. 12 drivers are chosen out of more than 2,000 applicants every year, she said. The genes must run in the family, because Smuds younger brother, Spencer Smud, also got the job. I had such an amazing experience with this job and I always wanted Spencer to have the same experience, Silvana said. Spencer, a 23-year-old UF recreation, parks and tourism senior, will graduate in May and start driving the Wienermobile in June. The job is a one-year contract that involves driving across the country and hitting three cities a said. Drivers are known as Hotdoggers. When she had the job, a then 7-year-old Spencer would come out to the events and help his sister. It was a part of his childhood. ing out Im going to have one of the best jobs that a college graduate could ever have, Spencer said. People saw me literally do my happy dance. on June 1 and go through a twoweek training known as Hotdog High. He will graduate as part of Hotdogger Class 27. His sister was in Class 12. Silvana said their family is also ecstatic about their shared Hotdogger status. Just the fact of having two Hotdoggers come out of Brandon, Florida, she said. They are just thrilled. The Smud siblings said the shared experience is extremely rare and hope that it will bring them closer. USA Today quoted that statistically, its easier to become president of the United States than to be chosen as an Oscar Mayer Hotdogger, she said. me, given the large number of Jewish students here, she said. Last June, Swedroe started coordinating with Gator Dining to get kosher options in UFs dining halls this year to better meet the needs of the student population. A lot of people keep kosher for Passover even if they dont keep kosher for the rest of the year, she said. Jaron Mandel, a 21-year-old UF accounting senior, said he thinks the option is going to work well for a lot of students. Im happy that theyre doing it, he said. Im sure it will be the start of something really nice. Jonathan Josephf, a 19-yearold UF biology sophomore, sher options on campus last year with his meal plan. Id have to buy matzo at Publix and just make make matzo and cream cheese sandwiches and PB&Js on my own, he said. Josephf, who still has a meal plan, said he thinks the partnership with Hillel is very progressive, and he plans to take advantage of it. Kosher offerings include hard-boiled eggs, tuna salad, fruit and salad. Gator Dining is also exploring the option of serving kosher yogurt and sausage, Swedroe said. Passover-friendly options will be marked with kosher symbols, she said. The food will be prepared in disposable pans and served on disposable plates so it doesnt touch anything that has prepared or served bread products. In addition to the strictly kosher foods served, kosherstyle options containing nobread products such as salmon prepared with no breadcrumbs will also be available. Its hard if youre living on campus, Swedroe said. I want to make it easier.Kosher dining hall food will be prepared, served separately 4, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2014 Courtesy to the AlligatorSilvana and Spencer Smud stand in front of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile after Silvana got the job of driving it across the country when she graduated in 1999.

Its a fantastic idea; after all, nearly 2,000 Americans ages 18 to 24 die each year from alcohol-related injuries. The annual screenings are hosted by a mental-health and substance-abuse resources to be made readily available to those who need it. UF, however, is not participating, which is pretty surprising. for students struggling with alcohol problems and students who know people struggling with alcohol. The schools medical amnesty policy protects students from disciplinary action if they suspect a friend has alcohol poisoning or has overdosed on drugs and call 911. Counseling is available at no charge to students in the UF Counseling & Wellness Center, and GatorWell has educational information on its website about alcohol abuse. ing a single anti-alcohol-abuse idea, the anonymous screenings would be a way for mental-health providers to connect with students who may be at risk. In fact, a screening day (or multiple screening days) may be the missing link in alcoholism prevention that UF needs. GatorWell offers proactive resources for stopping underage drinking and alcohol abuse, and the CWC offers solutions for people whove realized they have a problem. But how can the university help students identify the fact that they may have an unhealthy relationship with alcohol? Because were immersed in a culture that normalizes extreme alcohol consumption, many of us have no way of knowing if our alcohol habits are unhealthy. Young people who are just becoming exposed to practically limitless amounts of alcohol need ways to determine whether or not theyre truly drinking responsibly and if habitual alcohol abuse is a symptom of a deeper problem. Thats why anonymous screenings work. According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, screenings have become a mainstay of todays preventive health care. Screening is not the same as diagnostic testing, which esis used to identify people who are likely to have a disorder, as determined by their responses to certain key questions, the may be advised to undergo more detailed diagnostic testing to Anonymous screenings, then, offer a nonthreatening way for students to become more aware of their relationships with drinking. We hope GatorWell will consider participating in future college National Alcohol Screening Days to raise awareness about alcohol-related mental health issues and direct at-risk students to the right resources to prevent further problems. 64 TOTAL VOTES16% YES 84% NOVote or post a message at www.alligator.orgWednesdays question: Have you tried e-cigarettes?

Sanesha Taylor is a black, homeless mother of two whose mugshot went viral, complete with tears running like rivers off her cheeks. She was arrested for leaving her two children, aged 6 months and 2 years, while she and shes facing trial for a felony. The only way shes been able to pay legal fees so far is through online donations. She was upset. This is a sad situation all around. She said she was homeless. She needed the job. Obviously, not getting the job. So its just a sad situation, Connecticut TV station WFSB. It goes without saying its not a good idea to leave your kids locked in a hot car. But are those conditions much different than the ones theyd face on the streets? This woman was homeless, trying to make a better life for her kids and herself by getting a job. Its not as if she had money for a babysitter. also confessed to raping his 3-year-old daughter in 2009. The case recently went viral after it became public when compensatory and punitive damages for the sexual instead of jail time because the judge felt he would not fare well in prison. Of course, its unclear who exactly does fare well in prison, though looking at this dichotomy does make one thing certain: The two-tiered criminal justice system is alive and kicking. On one hand, you have a woman getting charged with a felony for going to a job interview to make a better life for herself. On the other, you have a rapist getting a slap on the wrist for molesting his own 3-year-old daughter. ards stems from the stereotype that people who raped children are treated worse than other inmates in prison. Im not sure if this is true, having never been in prison myself, but there are options other than letting him off with probation. An inmate can be placed in protective care alone if his or her safety is threatened. The idea that he wouldnt fare well is no excuse for his sentence. The juxtaposition of these cases is a clear-cut reminder of the dual criminal justice systems in the U.S. In fact, people of color make up more than 60 percent of the an advocacy group for prison reform.

OLIVIA MUENTERAvenue WriterThe Gainesville Fashion Week team hosted its annual night of runway fashion on Saturday, debuting to an audience of about 500 people. From swimwear to menswear, the show displayed a wide range of styles and talent. the runway was South Florida-based ZannieKini, a line of barely-there swimwear for young women. The playful bikinis ranged from solid, bright colors to tie-dye patterns with interesting straps as well as mix-andmatch tops and bottoms highlighting the collection.

The collection, a collaboration between Ni and designer David Tonnelier, featured womenswear and menswear in an assortment of colors and textures, and intricate cutout details were a staple throughout the collection. With strong 90s themes, holographic details and mesh fabrics highlighting the pieces, YAYA was on trend, while still remaining fresh and unique. Ni said she was inspired by the idea of repurposing clothing. To be able to repurpose a piece of clothing that makes it unique and one of a kind has always been an inspiration in and of itself, Ni said. YAYA was followed by a collection from Francine Elizabeth, who was showing her designs for the fourth time at GFW. Described as having a sleek, aesthetic appeal to women in their early 20s, Francine Elizabeths designs were classic silhouettes with visual interest added by different fabrics and textures. A standout piece was a sleeveless peplum top with velvet paneling. The fourth collection featured was The 1oz Project and Mikho, a menswear line. The designers described the collection as a labor of love and noted the animal within you as inspiration. The animal theme was apparent throughout the collection, with giraffe and python among some of the prints. The models were accessorized with body paint and fur, emphasizing the animalistic, wild theme. night came from Julia Chew and her Xiaolin line. The collection of feminine dresses managed to remain both relevant and entirely unique with its combination of interesting, structured silhouettes and highly saturated fabrics and textures.

The craftsmanship of the gown was impeccable, with jewel tones made the From feathers to bikinis, this years GFW was able to debut local, relevant collections that appealed to a variety of tastes and styles.

Against the Bruins, he provided a spark off the bench by record ing seven points, three rebounds and a block in six minutes of action. But at times this year, Walker looked lost and out of position on the defensive end. An offseason under coach Billy Donovan should help the Bonifay native better understand UFs defense and expand his post moves.

Baileys hit obviously really helped us because we kind of fell apart there in the end, coach Tim Walton said in a radio in terview. But overall, thats the name of the game. Sometimes nerves get the best of you. The team that gets the most hits with run ners in scoring position typically is going to be the team that wins. After three scoreless innings, which outs, Florida found success in the fourth frame. Kelsey Stewart opened the inning by grounding out to third, but Briana Little a baserunner.

16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, APRIL 10, 2014 Rogers struck out four batters in her 17th victory of the season three hits on the night, Walton thought the Gators made plays when they needed to. On offense, we got a couple good hits, Walton said. Schwarz got a really nice one and Baileys pinch hit was really clutch. In the circle, Hannah Rogers earned her 17th win of the season after throwing her 13th complete game this season. The Lake Wales native gave four batters to bring her total to 99 on the season. Hannah was the biggest difference, Walton said. I mean, she had some good stuff tonight, really made pitches when she had to. She gave up a couple walks, but really got on some hands, got some balls off the end of the bat and really commanded the zone. Florida, now riding a fourgame win streak, will look to keep its momentum going into non-conference matchups against Florida A&M on Friday and North Carolina State on Saturday. Were playing, and I think thats important, Walton said. Were not just going about practice and doing intersquads. At the end of the day, the most important part for our players is just to stay in shape and keep their eyes and their timing right for the next series we have to play. A radio broadcast contributed to this report. SOFT, from page 15 SOPHOMORE IS STARTING AT CORNERBACK. MORGAN MORIARTYAlligator Writer@Morgan_MoriartyIts not easy to get better when youre already one of the most talented cornerbacks in the nation. Thats what sophomore Vernon Hargreaves III is facing in 2014. Even after recording three interceptions and 11 pass breakups as a freshman, he has some ideas on how to improve. I just need to be a better leader, the Tampa native said. A lot of guys are looking up to me now, a lot of freshman corners we have now. Just being a better leader and staying on top of my game. Hargreaves is setting an example for the secondary, which is reloading this season to Roberson, Loucheiz Purifoy and Jaylen Watkins. True freshmen Duke Dawson and Jalen Hargreaves. Hargreaves knows what its like to have high expectations in year one. Youve just got to focus. Focus on what you can do because its hard and coming at you fast, especially with the up-tempo offense we have, he said. Everything is faster than what it usually goes. I tell them to be focused. Everything else will take care of itself. Hargreaves father, Vernon Jr., is the current linebackers coach at Houston. Prior to Houston, he coached defensive ends and special teams at USF for three seasons and was on Connecticuts staff for 13 years. Growing up as a coachs son helped shape Hargreaves into the player he is today. Ive been around football for as long as I can remember, Hargreaves said. Being around, when my dad coached at Miami, I was around all those great players like Ed Reed, Sean Taylor. I was around all them. I remember how hard they used to work and compete. I took that from them. A professional opportunity for defensive cient players under coach Will Muschamp and defensive backs coach Travaris Robinson have succeeded at the next level. Some notables include Baltimore Raven Matt Elam, Jacksonville Jaguar Josh Evans and Roberson and Purifoy. Coach Muschamp and Coach T-Rob know a lot of players, Muschamps coached in the league. They know what its like and our defense is based on a NFL scheme, Hargreaves said. (Former defensive coordinator) Dan Quinn is at the Seahawks now, he coached last year, he knows a lot of the stuff that we do. We base a lot of our stuff off of what he does, so its just a great opportunity. Saturday marks Floridas annual Orange and Blue Debut, a chance to give fans a glimpse of things to come for the season. The All-SEC corner knows a thing or two about making a Coach Muschamp is kind of emphasizing Were just going to go out there, have fun show a lot of effort, a lot of enthusiasm, try to execute as best as we can.
