REMEMBERING 9/11 ERIN FORDAlligator Contributing WriterUF students will unite tonight at a candlelight vigil to honor the lives impacted by Sept. 11. Nine campus cultural organizations will be hosting the vigil and panel. The panel will include representatives from the South AsianAmerican, Muslim-American, Sikh-American and Arab-American communities. Doors will open at 6 p.m. in Turlington L007 for the panel, which will be followed by a candlelight vigil on Turlington Plaza at 8:15 p.m. Various student-led groups within the university are taking part in the night of remembrance. Maulin Patel, president of Delta Epsilon Psi, which is co-sponsoring the event, said when he heard about the panel, he knew he couldnt pass it up.

ALEX MAMINAKISAlligator WriterThe 2015 U.S. News & World Report ranking of the nations top universities is here. While Florida State Universitys numbers dropped, UF moved up one spot to 48 for its national university ranking. In the public university rankings, UF held its place for the second year at No. 14 even as the universitys administrators continue the push for a top 10 ranking. The U.S. News rankings are based on reliable indicators of academic quality and a researched view of what matters in education. We held our ground and remain in good company with some of the nations best public universities, UF President Bernie Machen said in a statement. UFs Preeminence Plan is a long-range plan. We have already hired 52 of the best faculty from around the world just this year, and were optimistic that the plan will bear fruit as it continues to gain momentum. Jane Smith, a UF mathematics lecturer, said even if UF makes it to the top 10, the prestige of the university in the eyes of prospective students will remain strong. This is the best university in Florida, she said.

Even after they resumed, Redmond said, no one came back. Rolling later admitted to killing eight people and was put to death by lethal injection in 2006. But 24 years after the attacks, police are searching for a new predator. Since Aug. 30, four assaults have occurred both on and near campus. Each victim gave a similar suspect description: a white man at least 6 feet tall with a large build and dark hair. Though the recent attacks are not similar to those in the past, the fear is familiar. Pepper spray and rape whistles are sold out throughout town.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Staff Writerafernandez@alligator.orgGirls dressed in teal in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Week lined the seats of the University Auditorium on Wednesday to hear a survivor tell her story. Angela Rose was a high school senior when she was grabbed in 1996 outside the mall where she worked. The audience listened as Rose described the night she was taken by a repeat sex offender on parole for murder. Rose founded Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment (PAVE), an organization that teaches people to break their silence on their past experiences with sexual violence. Repeat offenders are not all that uncommon on college campuses, she said. Research shows that. Its also important to know that healing is absolutely possible and it is a choice. The attacks plaguing campus have caused fear to ripple through the student body. Female students like Kate Andersen, a 20-year-old UF tourism and hospitality management junior, are not willing to put their safety at risk. This event only brings more focus to learning ways to protect yourself and to be aware of your surroundings, she said. At the event, Susan Webster, the SG Senate majority leader, said stories like Roses can happen to anyone. Its unfortunate that the attacks on campus have come at the same time as our event, but this gives students even more reason to be educated, she said.Rape survivor shares story in Accent eventCRIME MELISSA MIHMAlligator Staff Writermmihm@alligator.orgParanoia ensued Tuesday night as Gainesville Police responded to a call near Sorority Row, but the incident was not related to the recent string of assaults on and near campus.

Locals remember, continue to worrysince Monday, Redmond said the reactions seem positive. Students are being proactive instead of retreating into their homes, he said. Social media is also being used to share information about the recent assaults and images of the possible suspect, Redmond said. He thinks it could help catch the man. Back then, all we had was print and TV, he said. Redmond said he repeatedly tells his daughter, a UF student, to walk home with friends or call the Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol or UPD if its late at night. You cant let it stop you from doing what you need to do, he said. SNAP vans have doubled, and UPD has pledged to escort students throughout campus. Ally Colangelo, an 18-year-old UF political science freshman, said she used to walk home from the library without being scared on late summer nights. But about everyone I see when Im walking around, Colangelo said. Colangelo said her mom is worried, too. As she was doing laundry Tuesday night in Broward Hall at about 11 p.m., her mom asked Colangelo to text her every 15 minutes or she would notify the police. Nicole Giaquinto, a 20-year-old UF public relations junior, said its hard for her to feel safe on campus. Shes frustrated she cant go to the gym or for a run without worrying about her wellbeing. But theres a positive to every negative, she said. The good thing is that girls are realizing that they have to be more aware, Giaquinto said.

Net neutrality is the idea that Internet Service Providers should treat all data equally, including not charging websites more for Participating websites asked users to send in comments to the Federal Communication Commission, preventing big businesses from charging users more for Internet services. I dont think the Internet should be regulated unless youre breaking the law, said Logan Cundiff, a 19-yearold UF computer engineering freshman. It violates freedom of speech and the First Amendment. UF law of mass communication professor Clay Calvert said students like Cundiff, who watch shows charged more for Internet services. But the charge might be unconstitutional. It would be an abuse, said Sarah Garcia, a 19-yearold UF computer engineering sophomore. One more thing to pay for to use when it should be free. in favor of net neutrality because they want users to have faster delivery of movies and television shows while the ple using more of their bandwidth. Cundiff said he doesnt want to pay the extra cost. I supportthe freedom of the Internet, and they support the peoples preferences instead of other preferences, Cundiff said. Calvert had a different opinion on net neutrality. I dont mind seeing companies charge more if people consume some vast amount of content because it People can send in comments to the FCC until Monday about whether they believe the Internet should be a public utility.Slowdown Day for net neutrality TWO ORGANIZATIONS HELD IT. GABRIELLA NUEZAlligator Contributing WriterEulogies for Michael Brown and Palestinian Mohammed Abu Khdeir were read outside of Turlington Hall on Wednesday. The UF Students for a Democratic Society and Students for Justice in Palestine joined forces to host a rally for students supporting the people of Palestine and Ferguson, Missouri. Members of both organizations carried cut-out tombstones with the names and pictures of deceased youth who had lost their lives under tragic circumstances. Tesneem Shraiteh, president of the UF Students for Justice in Palestine, said the deaths of Brown and Abu Khdeir should not be forgotten. We wanted to raise awareness to the systems of oppressions that cause these losses and to draw connections between them, Tesneem, a 20-year-old UF linguistics junior, said. Theyre not isolated unfortunate events that happen to occur. During the rally, Jonathan Waring, president of UF Students for a Democratic Society, said demilitarization of the police could prevent deaths like Michael Browns from happening. The members of the Ferguson Police Department who were sent in to disperse the protesters were trained by the Israeli Defense Force, said Waring, a 19-year-old UF psychology sophomore. So theres a connection between the national and the international events that are taking place.

Throughout her trip, the 19-year-old UF Spanish and anthropology sophomore was sponsored by Smart Stun, a self-defense retail company. In light of recent attacks on and near campus, Truong reached out to the company again to see what they could do. I felt safer biking and hitch-hiking for 83 days by myself than when Im on campus at night and trying to get on the bus, she said. The New Hampshire-based company responded and is offering UF students three Barracuda BC-37 stun guns online for $99.95, when they are typically $54.95 each. Students can receive the discount by typing Protect the University of Florida in the comment box. Smart Stuns owner and president Nate Sprague said the deal will be available through Thanksgiving. Van expressed concern to me, and I had gotten some calls from parents of students at UF, Sprague said. I thought it would be a good way to help out and offer a chance for some extra protection. Stun guns are only allowed on campus with a concealed weapons permit, said UF police spokesman Maj. Brad Barber. Pepper spray is allowed. Our focus is to provide information and safety considerations that people can use and rely upon to help avoid incidences and locavictims of crime, Barber said. Manali Patel, a 20-year-old UF applied physiology and kinesiology senior, said she its dark now. My friends and I carry pepper spray, but if I knew Id be on campus at night I think having a stun gun would help me feel a lot safer, Patel said. I think its cool that theyre doing this deal.

Todays question: Do you think some people selling weapons are capitalizing on the fear from the assaults? Men: Shut up and listen about assaultWith the recent reports of Ray Rice committing assault and the outbreak of assaults at UF, the topic of violence against women is on everybodys lips. In general, peoples opinions on these issues are fairly similar. The American public, for the most part, wants to see Ray Rice punished and wants to see the NFL held accountable for virtually ignoring this crime until recently. The Gainesville community also wants to see the men responsible for assaulting women on campus arrested and convicted. Unfortunately, this sentiment of punishing criminal offenders doesnt go far enough. While I was riding the bus to campus Monday, a couple sitting in front of me was discussing the growing number of UF Alerts notifying students of attempted assaults. The woman said, Now I am more scared of walking alone at night. In the past, I was okay, but now Im scared of any male that . The man quickly interrupted by saying, Dont worry, Ill walk you to wherever you need to go. Remember, Im one of the good guys. While his offer seems like a courteous gesture, this wellintentioned individual completely missed the point. He was under the impression that the young womans heightened fear of assault was a temporary one, and as a result, he tried When the issue of rape comes up, men tend to take it personally. We often resort to defending and distinguishing ourselves as one of the good guys. It is our obligation to actively listen, research and learn about how pervasive As men, we have to stop making these issues about ourselves and start to actually listen. Hearing numerous stories of harassment and assault might make us squeamish and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, these situations are even worse for the and live through them at an alarming and growing rate. Victimized women are already have been conditioned by society to keep to themselves. We should take a step back and let women have their space to vent their frustration and fear. One way to help is to challenge other men who engage seems like a no-brainer, but it simply does not happen as often as it should. If you see a man engaging in catcalls, groping, unwanted comments on womens bodies or any other inappropriate behavior, call them out on it. Demand accountability for sports entities and other insupport to people who are willing to go public with their stories of being assaulted or raped. When a marginalized group talks about its struggles, the best thing to do as a privileged person is to listen, offer you are part of the problem. We have to tell our brothers, cousins, uncles, friends and anyone else who will listen that any kind of violence against women is wrong. ed issues to UF students, all of us, particularly those in leadmembers and community and Student Government leaders have a remarkable opportunity to stand up against this criminal behavior. issue that concerns all of us.

This partnership between the UF School of Theatre and Dance and the Hippodrome gives some masters students the opportunity to bring their talents to this multi-award winning play on racial tensions in two different decades. Uncomfortable situational comedy is the best way to describe it, said Sean Cancellieri, a third-year plays two lead male roles. Cancellieri said he hopes that the play can help inspire some change on the racial issues brought up in Clybourne Park. By collaborating with the Hippodrome, UF students have the opportunity to work in a professional setting, which helps prepare students for real-world acting jobs. All the while they are allowed to earn credit, said Stephanie Lynge, an actress in the Gainesville community who plays two lead female roles. Six weeks are allotted to put up a show at the academic theater, whereas at the Hippodrome you have two and a half weeks, she said. Lynge, who has performed on Broadway and toured nationally, clearly remembers how she learned the most through experience. Doing things made what she learned in class click. Art should make you uncomfortable and entertain you, she said, and this play is a combination of both. This is the second production put Avenue Q last summer, said Jessica Hurov, managing director of the Hippodrome. Because of the great wanted to work together again. Weve been thrilled, she said.

Also, it exposes the theater to a new audience of students who go and see the show. Although 18-year-old UF journalism freshman Alexis Cavakis-Perez saw the play because her theater appreciation class required it, she recognized Clybourne Park as not the typical play you would go see.

According to the CEO of Levi Strauss & Co., Chip Bergh, you might be washing them too often. Bergh recently spoke about the companys commitment to sustainability, encouraging individuals to prolong washing their jeans. Were hoping to spread the word through the work were doing to encourage consumers to wash less and to create more awareness about the choices consumers have to make when they purchase new clothes, the companys spokeswoman, Marisa Giller, wrote in an email. Although the campaign has been going on for years, it took an interesting turn just a few months ago when our CEO, Chip Bergh, stood up to show the pants he was wearing and admitted that they hadnt been washed in a year, she said. Washing your jeans every two weeks instead of every week will not only save 14 liters of water, but will also serve as a great excuse to reduce laundry. Carlotta Murri, a 21-yearold UF international studies senior, said she thinks prolonging the washing of denstudents living in dorms and paying to use the machines. I wash them like, what? Every two weeks or so, she said. I try not to waste water. Really, it boils down to how the jeans are worn. If youre working in a dirty environment, youll likely have to wash more often, Giller said. If youre wearing your jeans to class every dayprobably not as much. Richard Lainez, a 20-yearold UF biology junior, likes to wear a pair of jeans at least once or twice a week, but said he doesnt agree with not washing them often. During the summer if youre outside in the day, its going to be all sweaty, Lainez said. An average pair of jeans absorbs roughly 3,500 liters of waterand that is after only two years of use. Some suggest placing them in the freezer to kill bacteria and eliminate odor. Take your pick.Levis CEO suggests: wash your jeans less ABIGAIL DOUPNIKAvenue WriterA retired Mennonite is not who you would expect to plan and participate in demonstrations against corporate giants like Publix. But Gainesvilles Richard MacMaster has the photos to prove it. MacMaster, a coordinator for the Interfaith Alliance for Immigrant Justice, created a gallery of photos to serve as a way to tell not only the story of his organization, but also the stories of the migrant workers that it aims to improve working and living conditions for. The photos line the walls of the Mennonite Meeting House at 1236 NW 18th Ave., showcasing events the organization participated in, as well as portraits of laborers in Immokalee, Our hope is that it would open eyes to the very hard and ill-paid work that goes into putting the food on your table, he said, especially the winter tomatoes. MacMaster said in the winter months, the Immokalee area provides tomatoes for nearly the entire country. They have to pick an enormous amount of tomatoes to make anything near minimum wage, he said. A combination of passionate key individuals and a desire to address human rights issues happening close to home led the organization to form in July 2010. Although students have been involved since the beginning, it chose to make religious institutions the cornerstone in order to maintain permanency in a transitional town. The appeal to justice is very strong in every religions scriptures, MacMaster said. Since its creation, the Alliance has worked closely with the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Student Farmworker Alliance to negotiate fair food agreements with food growers and buyers. The gallery aims to create a visible record of all the organization has accomplished and inspire continued growth in years to come. involved with the Alliance, contributed photos to the gallery. As a dietician, I believe all food issues are nourish yourself, you must do it ethically. her Jewish faith and the tenet of Judaism that prohibits consuming food produced by oppressed labor. We vote with our forks, she said. The kind of food choices we make determine the world we will live in. Those interested in viewing the gallery can attend meetings for the Interfaith Alliance for Immigrant Justice at the Mennonite Meeting House at 6 p.m. on the second Monday of every month.Photo gallery brings light to struggle of migrant workers


THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 9 8, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 JASMINE WILDFLOWER OSMONDAvenue WriterMen and women dressed in thick wool slacks and layers upon layers of clothing get ready for a long day around the farm in Floridas late-summer heat. If you asked if they were hot, they would raise their eyebrows quizzically after all, this is 1868. Dudley Farm Historic State Parks third Reconstruction Era reenactment this weekend was called 1868 Comes Alive. Forty-two living historian volunteers devised their son immersion where the characters improvise and react to the audience, like two different eras looking themselves in the face. The park hosts the event every year to illustrate the hardships of Northern Florida citizens during the pivotal Reconstruction Era in history. Dudley Farm Park Ranger and living historian, David Riker, 55, of Bell, Florida, has been participating in reenactments for 28 years and played the city marshal in this event. As a living historian, Riker and his fellow volunlived, thought, ate and slept. Weve lived history, weve been in tents, weve seen sunrises together, weve fought battles together, he said. We have lived history as close as we can. Reconstruction was a very sensitive time in American history right after the Civil War; African Americans were free but not citizens. Steve Noll, a UF American history professor, said while event at Dudley Farm did not address. Issues of race that were never resolved then still play out today, he said. The men returning from war were sick and without homes or jobs. Their families were left without husbands and fathers. Volunteers picked the year 1868 for this speAt 8:30 a.m. Friday, everyones dressed and briefed on each others characters for the day. The school teacher sits on the bench furthest from the door, eating the top of her ter. Riker tells everyone to do an authenticity check. Alright everybody, you know the drill, he said. The anachronistic bunch look at their wrists and remove their watches and wedding rings. Before anything else can be said, a single cell phone goes off, and everybody laughs. The living historians take all precautions to make sure everything is as authentic and realistic as possible. Youll walk in, and its like youre looking at a bunch of ghosts, Riker said. Tom Sanders, 61, of Ocala, has been doing reenactments for 20 years. He usually goes to Civil War reenactments as Maj. Sanders. He works as a cooper, a man who makes wooden buckets and barrels by hand. You know they cant make me a colonel, he said. The only thing theyd want from me is chicken.Weekend Reconstruction Era: realistic depiction of post-Civil War lifestyles GABRIELLA NUEZAvenue WriterThe JAM turns two today a milestone the owners didnt think theyd see. With the expansion of UFs Innovation Hub downtown, the music venue at 817 W. University Ave. is only guaranteed six months to a year of permanence at a time. This building and this whole block is scheduled for demolition sometime in the near future, said co-owner Eduardo Eddy Arenas. From the beginning, weve been here with the understanding that we could get a 60-day notice to vacate. Though The JAM may have an uncertain future, it has not stopped providing live music. the local venue, 215 in its second. The increase happened by offering live performances three to four times a week. We try to give all kinds of music an opportunity within reason, he said. Were not into offensive music; we try to keep a mindful, conscious message. This has created a very respectful community, according to Arenas, a community that will be present tonight for The JAMs two-year anniversary party. We tried to call upon Gainesvilles best musicians, said Arenas. If you look at the lineup its a lot of bands that have a great following in Gainesville. With recent notice that The JAM will remain for at least another six months, Arenas and his co-owner, Blake Briand, created an IndieGoGo campaign with a goal of $5,000 where concert-goers and the community can donate to help keep So far theyve raised almost $1,000, with 19 days left. Were just working people who put money and passion into something they love as a hobby; there are no outside investors, said Briand. Our goal is the music, not the money. The event is free for all to attend. The that includes Swamp Records-signed artist Bells and Robes and local favorite Flat Land.The JAM jams on tonight, celebrates another year BRYAN FAUXAvenue Writer judgments based on race and still insist that youre not racist? The characters in Bruce Norris Tony and Pulitzer prize-winning play Clybourne Park certainly do. The production of Clybourne Park, which opened Friday at the Hippodrome State Theatre, is a collaboration between the UF School of Theatre and Dance and the Hippodrome. It was scheduled several months before the recent protests in Ferguson, Missouri, giving the play a surprising sense of urgency and relevance. The play is a clever companion piece to Lorraine Hansberrys classic drama A RaiAct One begins in 1959 and introduces Russ and Bev, a white couple grieving over the loss of their son, who is planning to move out of Clybourne Park. Karl (a character who actually appears in A Raisin in the Sun) pleads with Russ and Bev not to move, concerned about the black family that will now occupy their house. Karl fears more black families will move into the neighborhood and decrease the property value of the houses there. Act Two picks up 50 years later, and Clybourne Park has become a predominantly black neighborhood. A white family wants to renovate the house and move in, which year UF masters student Javon Johnson delivers some hitting one-liners in back-andforth racial dialogues in this act. To avoid spoiling the plays best surprises, Ill leave the summary brief. Norris dialogue is engaging and often painfully funny. The play moves along at a clip without becoming tedious or boring. There are several moments of racial tension that are exceedingly uncomfortable but ultimately aid in driving Norris point home. The skillful company of eight, who play different characters in each act, each give great performances, but its Christopher Swan who manages to stand out. Swans performance as Russ is nuanced and believable, as he handles the heaviest moments of the piece without overacting. This production has much to recommend, Even in a subpar production, the strength of the script would shine the most. Fortunately, the actors carry the script in stride. Clybourne Park is a great piece of writing brought vividly to life by a skilled and committed group of performers.Hipps Clybourne Park: funny, relevant production ALEXANDRA FERNANDEZ Avenue WriterAnna Morgan didnt mind getting wet. On the day she got caught in the rain without an umbrella, it was the books in her hands she was concerned for, she said. In an attempt to save them, Morgan, a 20-year-old UF English junior, crouched down on the sidewalk and created a body shield with a friend. Just as she thought the books would be ruined forever, a man came up to them and offered to share his umbrella. I posted a thank you to him on Facebook later that day, said Morgan. I said, To the nice gentleman with the umbrella: Youve saved not just me and my friend, but also all of these books that people love. Even though it seemed like you got caught in the rain every day, August isnt really the rainiest month. The rainiest month in North Florida is actually June, with an annual average of more than 7 inches, WRUFs chief meteorologist, Jeff Huffman, wrote in an email. The rainy season continues through early October, which is why there is more frequent rain during wrote. Gator fans encountered the rain during the canceled football game against Idaho on Aug. 30. Allison Kane, a 20-year-old classical studies junior and member of the UF marching band, was face-to-face with the storm. Kane was not allowed to play her clarinet in the rain because woodwind instruments cannot get wet. However, many of her fellow band members played instruments that could withstand the downpour. I lucked out, Kane said. A lot of the brass had to stand out in the rain, and their uniforms got soaking wet, and they were cold. As the marching band was adapting to the rain at the game, so were the students in the stands. For Gabriel Martins, it was an unforgettable season opener. Gator game, and Im a junior so its Martins, a 20-year-old UF computer science junior. Despite the rain, Martins had fun. I was enjoying the rain, partying in the rain and doing Breakfast Club moves on the bleachers, said Martins.Rain, rain go the eff away theater history

aligned, Muschamp said. We had some times we got lined up late, we didnt get in the right spot. It caused our eyes not to get into the right spot. In addition to the young secondary, perimeter run defense is something Muschamp and defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin want improved before Florida opens its Southeastern Conference schedule against Kentucky on Saturday. (Eastern Michigan) gained some positive yards on us in that game on the perimeter and doing some different ways of getting to it, which is similar to things Kentucky already does, things they did against us last year, Durkin said. Its part of what they already do so thats obviously been an emphasis for us this week. Linebackers and DBs, all the same. The Wildcats have scored seven rushing touchdowns and are averaging 233 yards per game on the ground this season. Patrick Towles, Kentuckys starting quarterback, adds an extra dimension to the Wildcats offense. Towles leads Kentucky with 27 rushing attempts and has the ability to make plays with his feet. When youve got a quarterback that can move that can get out of the pocket when pressures coming and stuff like that, its always a challenge, because youve got to cover for that much longer, youve got to rush for that much longer, Taylor said. Thats always a challenge, but like I said before and like Champ said, if we get good edge on the perimeter of the defense, we keep the quarterback in the pocket. Theres nowhere he can run, so keep him inside the pocket, make him be a pocket passer. I think our guys are good enough to cover their guys. 14, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 FOOTBALL, from page 13Kentucky has a dual-threat QBUF defense not using comments as motivationyou said. Linebacker Michael Taylor not only heard Kemps words, but he also responded with a few of his own on Twitter. Heard u were talkin shit but your Kentuckys 3rd string back, Taylor tweeted Wednesday. But when asked if Kemps comments would serve as fuel to with the Wildcats, Taylor said he and the rest of his teammates have enough motivation to perform well after a 4-8 year. After the season we had last year and watching myself and how we played last year, theres no extra motivation needed, the redshirt senior said. This whole summer, hearing all that stuff and seeing the results of last year, no extra motivation is needed. That was taken into training camp and spring practices and everything we did leading up to this point. Sophomore cornerback Vernon Hargreaves agreed. At the end if we beat them, its a little something to rub in his face, Hargreaves said. Were not looking too much into it. SIDEBAR, from page 13

GRAHAM HACKAlligator Writer@graham_hack24Every new season brings with it a fresh start and clean slate, but for this years installment of the Florida womens tennis team, there is more freshness than usual. After the departure of graduatOyen and Alex Cercone the winningest class in UF history the Gators are now comprised of one junior, four sophomores and three freshmen. With so much experience being replaced with so much youth, in terms of talent and leadership. Enter Brianna Morgan. While only a junior, Morgan is the veteran of the team and the clear leader heading into the season. She is ranked No. 14 in the national singles chart of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Division I Womens Preseason Rankings, matching the highest ranking of her career. Florida coach Roland Thornqvist said he thinks Morgan can get even better if she improves Shes got world class game, said Thornqvist, entering his 14th year at Florida. She didnt have a very good summer, shell be the been an animal in practice the Two other Gators made the preseason rankings; sophomore Kourtney Keegan is ranked No. 51 in the singles chart and Belinda Woolcock, also a sophomore, is No. 89. The duo is also ranked No. 13 nationally in the preseason doubles ranking, a career-high for the pairing. Despite the youth and inexperience, Thornqvist said he thinks the players this year will be able to push each other harder in practice because of their collective ball-striking ability, something previous teams were unable to do. What I like about this team, even though were young, we really have some big ball strikers on this team, he said. Brianna, perhaps in the years past, had been the only one, so its been tough for us to match her in practice, forehand to forehand, backhand to backhand. We have a few players on this years team who can go toe-to-toe with her from the baseline. One of the biggest changes in collegiate tennis this year is the no-ad scoring system, something that rule-makers hope will speed up matches and make them more exciting. It will be used in both singles and doubles. Originally used in mens Division I tennis from 1975-1988, noad means players will no longer have to win a game by two points. If the score is tied at three points each, the next point wins. Coach Thornqvist said he has no experience with no-ad scoring in all his years of coaching, but he is excited to see what it brings to the game. the Gators and the new scoring system will be at the Duke Invitational in Durham, N.C., which begins Friday. chemistry between doubles pairings will be very important, and this tournament will provide him them in action against other competitors. Belinda Woolcock will also hope to repeat her success from this tournament a year ago. Woolcock made the singles was part of the doubles team black draw title. 16, ALLIGATOR THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2014 Jordan McPherson / Alligator StaffBrianna Morgan swings to return the ball during Floridas 4-0 win against Harvard on Jan. 26 at the WOMENS TENNISYoung roster looking to make up for loss of veteran class Belinda Woolcock Sophomore 28-9 singles record in 2013-14 No. 98 in ITA preseason singles rankings Stefani Stojic Sophomore 14-6 singles record in 2013-14 Brianna Morgan Junior 29-8 singles record in 2013-14 No. 14 in ITA preseason singles rankings Kourtney Keegan Sophomore 31-11 singles record in 2013-14 No. 51 in ITA preseason singles rankingsReturning Players
