Dentist Joins


40-Year Practice

She keeps office from grinding to a halt
while founder recovers from surgery.


By CHERYLIKUCK
wkuck@tampa bay.rr.com
EDITOR'S NOTE, The version
of this article that appeared in
the Dec. 3 edition ofthe Plant.
City Courier & Tribune had
factual errors. ;The article is
being republished with the
corrected information.
PLANT CITY - For 40 years,
dentist James R. Hoover has
attracted a loyal base of pa-
tients to his practice.
In April, he was sidelined
with neck surgery. He was
been unable to see patients
during his recovery.
So he recently hired dentist
Joyce Thomas, who moved to
the Tampa area from Mary-
land.
Hoover met her through her
husband, physician Joyson Ka-


rakunnel, a new associate at
Hematology & Oncology Con-
sultants of Tampa Bay in Bran-
don, where Hoover's wife, Bev-
erly, was receiving her cancer
treatments. Thomas, a mother
of two, joined the practice in
mid-September.
Thomas said she is a "proud
first-generation American,"
whose family came from Ker-
ala, India.
"I have been a doctor of
dental surgery for about 10
years and had been in a dream
job up North I was reluctant to
leave. I am amazed that I have
been able to find another one."
Thomas' name is on the
building at 2309 W. Reynolds
St., and the practice is accept-
ing new patients.
"I'm looking forward to the:

next 40 years of the Hoover
and Thomas dental practice,".
she said.
One thing hasn't changed at
Hoover's office: His staff re-
mains the same, including hy-
gienist Karen Godfrey and
dental assistant Velda Hall,
who have been working with


him for 35 years; Dot Andreu,
who has been handling the
office and front desk for 20
years; and Sandy Warner, who
has been office manager for
three years.
Hoover plans to return to
seeing patients when he recov-
ers from his surgery.

PLANT CITY - This year for
the first time, Metropolitan
Ministries has established
Plant City collection sites to
receive holiday donations to
help the needy.
The charity set up what it
calls a holiday center at a car
dealership to accept donations
for its annual food and toy
drive.
Metropolitan Ministries also
set up several nearby satellite
locations to receive donations.
Metropolitan Ministries
public relations coordinator
Ana Maria Mendez said that in
an effort to make donating
more convenient, the Tampa-
based nonprofit organization
adds one holiday collection
center each season.
The Plant City Holiday Cen-
ter was established because of
the 24,000 families the organi-
zation will help this holiday;
more than 850 are in the Plant
City area, she said.

choice for both local people as
well as visitors."
Smith and co-chairman Chris
Sparkman have been involved
with the event since its inception
by the Greater Plant City Cham-
ber of Commerce.
Smith remembers when a very
excited chamber board member,
Mark Poppell of Poppell Insur-
ance, came to a meeting and told
of visiting the Big Pig Jig in Vien-
na, Ga. He told the chamber
board, "If they can do it there, we,
at the crossroads of 1-75 and 1-4,
can do it here!"
Poppell is passionate about
barbecue. He and his cooking
team partner, Fred Williams, have
been "barbecuing for about 12
years" and travel to locations in
Florida and out of state.
Pig Jam contestant Jim Everett
of Lakeland calls barbecuing "a
redneck sport. I cook with differ-
ent teams and mostly travel Cen-
tral Florida. It's a sport, but it's a
serious sport. Competitors put
out fake labels for their spices and
would guard their ingredients
with their lives."
"That first time we dedicated
barbecuers took to the road, we
traveled six hours to get to a
location where we could set up
and compete," Poppell said. "No-
body can do it just for the money.
You have entry fees, transporta-
tion costs, and you have to buy
your own product. If I'm compet-
ing, the first thing I do is go to
Felton's Market [in Plant City] and
ask to examine their best cuts of

"There is nothing that could make

Downtown Land Purchase

A Waste Of Money


To keep the municipal bus
serVice running for another
year would have cost the city
of Plant City less than $200,000
- and, maybe, with some ex-
tended service runs, a little bit
more; however, the city of
Plant City has now agreed to
spend $475,000 to buy nearly a
half-acre - a vacant lot down-
town - that used to have a
very well-done mural of histor-
ic Plant City that was razed.
Mr. Devane is going to donate
back to the city of Plant City
$50,000 for use for landscaping
the property? He has been
using it for a parking lot - why
didn't he do the landscaping
then - or didn't the city of
Plant City care a hoot? Folks,
we are in a recession/depres-
sion - or hadn't you noticed.
Times are bad and only go-
ing to get worse, and yet this
city's administration thinks
nothing of taking away the bus
service for seniors and after
claiming how costly it was for
the city of Plant City to main-


tain, used more than double
that amount to buy a piece of
land with no future use except
to have planters and vines on
trellises! Reality time, guys!
Maybe you are getting a
paycheck on a regular basis,
but a lot of folks are not.

PLANT CITY UPDATE


Party To Celebrate
Author's 1st Novel
A Thursday night party is
scheduled to mark the publi-
cation of "Stealing Dreams," a
novel by Plant City resident
Betty J. Patton.
The publication party,
which is open to the public,
will be from 5:15 to 7 p.m. at
Joey's Italian Restaurant, 110 E.
Reynolds St., in downtown
Plant City, and will feature
book signing by the author,
complimentary hors d'oeuvres
and a cash bar. There also will
be a special musical rendition
of a poem central to the nov-
el's theme.
Published by AuthorHou'se
and-available on Amazon.com,
the book will be available at a
discounted price at the paity,
said Gil Gott, the author's edi-
tor, publicist and husband.
Gott describes "Stealing
Dreams" as a romance novel
with a twist, in that it depicts
the long-term effects child
abuse can have on otherwise
normal adult loving interper-
sonal relationships. Protago-
nists Jodi Geoffrey and Mi-
chael Chandler have diverse
personal and professional


backgrounds and struggle with
the adversity that haunts their
loving relationship.
Using a photograph he took
at Cade's Cove in Tennessee,
David Patton designed the
cover of the 290-page first nov-
el by his mother. The "Stealing
Dreams" poem was made into
a musical composition, per-
formed and recorded by local
developer Ed Vemrner on acous-
tical guitar.
Betty J. Patton studied writ-
ing at Hillsborough Communi-
ty College; has worked for
South Florida Baptist Hospital,
Hillsboro State Bank and Sun
Bank; has volunteered for the
Greater Plant City Chamber of
Commerce; and is a Plant City
Photo Archives volunteer in
charge of digital imaging.
She was selected as one of
the Eckerd 100 Women in 1998
and honored by the Gulf Ridge
Council Girl Scouts as one of
the women of accomplish-
ment in 1999.
Her memberships include
the Plant City Woman's Club,
Romance Writers of America,
-the, Tampa Area Romance
Writers Association, the Amer-
ican Association for State and
Local History and the Florida

Holiday Classic
To Usher In Season
For about 75 members of
the Plant City Children's
Theatre, Saturday's the big
day.
At 2 p.m., the theater will
stage its annual production of
the holiday classic "The Nut-
cracker" at the Plant City High
School auditorium.
The theater has been per-


forming the play each Christ-
mas season for about 15 years.
"It's a holiday tradition,"
theater executive director
Sharon Everidge said.
It's the biggest production
of the year for the children's
theater. A silent auction starts
at 11 a.m., also at the school at
One Raider Place off Alexander
Street west of James L. Red-
man Parkway.
Last year's production and
auction netted about $7,000
for college scholarships, Eve-


ridge said,
Features include Eric Wil-
liams as the Cavalier, soloist
Ashley Wilkinson of Cape Cor-
al and Carol Grayson of Lake-
land, a choreographer who will
bring a group to perform a
waltz.
Tickets are $8 in advance
and $10 at the door. Advance
tickets are available at Har-
dee's Fashions, 1501 N. Wheel-
er St., and the children's the-
ater, 507 N. Wheeler St.
The silent auction will in-
clude gift certificates, theme
park passes and tickets to the
Outback Bowl, Everidge said.
For information, call the
theater at (813) 752-1683.

artist Jesse Starr and a plaque.
He was called to the 50-yard
line for the presentation dur-
ing a Nov. 14 game.
As chaplain, he holds chapel
and otherwise ministers to
players. He also regularly
snaps photos of players and,
grills hamburgers and hot dogs
at team cookouts, said Mike
Storter,. a Plant City High
teacher who is also a minister
at First Baptist.
Players appreciate him so
much that they talk about his
many acts of kindness years
later, Storter said.
His tenure as chaplain spans
at least six coaches, and he's
now ministering to the chil-
dren of former players, Storter
said.
Warnock said he loves being
able to help nurture the play-
ers' character and offer them
guidance.
"It's been a blast," said War-
nock, who has been a minister
at First Baptist since the 1980s.
"You watch boys become
men.
"I love that high school and I
love our community," he said.
His wife, Pam, and 19-year-
old daughter, Brooke, were at
his side as school Principal
Colleen Richardson, Athletic
Director Trent Hobbs and ath-
letic booster club President
Philip Balliet made the pre-


seritationi lst month. The
Warnocks' 23-year-old son,
Trey, was unable to attend
because of his studies in the
master's program in agricul-
ture at the University of Flori-
da. Both his children graduat-
ed from Plant City High before
entering college.
SWarnock said he has helped
with other sports teams at the
school, but his closest ties are
with the Raiders football team.

Restaurant Gives
School Helping Hand
The recent meal giveaway
promotion at Polio Tropical,
238 W. Alexander St., raised
nearly $2,000 for the Plant City
High School Parent Teacher
Student Association.
PTSA received $1 for each of
the 1,937 free coupons cus-
tomers redeemed for a compli-
mentary quarter-chicken value
meal. Students, teachers and
community members from as
far away as Lakeland partici-
pated in the promotion, held
from 2:30 to 9 p.m. Nov. 20.
The meal - one of the
restaurant's most popular -
normally costs $3.79 for the
restaurant's citrus-marinated
chicken, black beans, rice and
a roll.
It was not the first time the
new restaurant and the school
have partnered for a- cause.
Polio Tropical hosted a "Pol-
lo's Got Talent" contest during
the restaurant's March grand


opening, also to benefit Plant
City High. The restaurant is
located a short distance from
the school campus.

Miss Heart Pa eant


Beats For More Entries

The deadline for applications has been extended to Monday.


By GEORGE H. NEWMAN
gnewman@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - Calling all con-
testants.
The deadline for applica-
'tions for the 2009 Miss Heart of
Plant City Pageant has been
extended to Monday, with
pageant officials keeping their
fingers crossed for a good- re-
sponse. This is the third dead-
line extension because -of a
lack of contestants.
The competition, to be held
Jan. 31, is a preliminary schol-
arship pageant for the annual
Miss Florida and Miss America
Scholarship pageants.
Contestants may live in any
ZIP code but must be 17 to 24
years old and at least be a
senior in high school.
"We need at-least five con-
testants to qualify under the
Miss America rules," said Re-
gan Whitehurst, a member of
the Miss Heart of Plant City
board of directors. "Our pag-
eant allows competitors the
opportunity to further their
education through scholarship
awards. And our affiliation


Holland
The 2008 win-
ner will relini-
quish her
crown Jan. 31.


with the Miss Florida and Miss,
America pageants gives the
winner a chance of a lifetime."
The Miss Heart of Plant City
Pageant was founded by Bren-
da White, who was the exec-
utive director of the event for
five years, said Roxanne Ful-
wood, who has been the direc-
tor since the 2006 pageant.
"The initial pageant in 2002
Was held at the HCC [Hillsbor-
ough Community College] au-
ditorium in Plant City with five
contestants," Whitehurst said.
"That year, Rebekah Green
took the title and went on to
compete at the Miss Florida
Pageant."
Other title holders include
Sheena Rathell, 2003; Jennifer
St. Martin, 2004; Holly Stein,
2005; Caycee Hampton, 2006;
Megan Shelley, 2007; and


Amanda Holland, 2008.
The location for the 2009
event has not yet been deter-
mined.
Gaining corporate, and indi-
vidual sponsorships has al-
ways been a challenge for the
pageant, officials said. Now it
seems that the recent econom-
ic downturn may be discour-
aging the number of appli-
cants.
"We need some girls to step
up and make this a contest,"
Whitehurst said.
Each year contestants are
awarded a minimum of $500
in scholarship money. The
winner is awarded a crown
and a trip to the Miss Florida
pageant, recently held in St.
Petersburg, where more schol-
arship money is at stake. The
winner there has the opportu-
nity to win the title of Miss
America.
Judges look for certain char-
acteristics that would make a
good leader and representative

On A Mission To Beautify Home


Garden club
rewards Lakeview
Way couple for
their landscaping.
By PENNY BRAGG
Special to the Tribune
PLANT CITY - The Plant City.
Garden Club beautification
award for October goes to
Mike and Janet Maze of Lake-
view Way. Their house was
built in the -1980s, and the
Mazes bought it from her par-
ents in 1993. It has lent itself
well to the mission-style 'feel-
ing Mike and Janet Maze have
chosen.
This style is artfully carried
out starting with the large
Southwest-looking wrought-
iron artwork on the burnt-
orange walls of their sprawling
ranch home along with the
many landscaping choices the
couple have made.
A sweeping circular drive-,
way across the front yard
carves out a large semi-circle
garden plot filled with a variety
of plants of many shapes and
heights and textures. The Maz-
es were glad to have the help of
her neighbor and friend Mar-
tha Genualdi in the creation of
this garden and other areas

Janet and Mike Maze, second and third from left, are winners of
the October beautification award from Plant City Garden Club.


around the home; Genualdi is
an artist and an art teacher.
The three. of them have had
fun working together, and the
ongoing project has kept them
in step with their philosophy
that if we all had flower beds,
as in days of yore, we would do
a lot to help fix and clean up
the environment.
The front semicircle is divid-
ed by a pebble path with sunk-
en, round steppingstones. This
path cuts through the mulched


areas and leads from the street
to the driveway, and gives you
access to the mailbox if you are
coming from the house. A "lit-
tle guy" filled with straw and
wearing a sombrero-type hat,
is positioned next to a tipped-
over earthenware jug beside
the path, while ground lighting
is provided by several bluish,
metal lanterns that have the
quaint look of having aged
over time.
The mailbox is to the right

plements the bumt-orange
walls of the ranch-style home.
side of the path and is sur-
rounded by Mexican petunias.
A maple tree lends a vertical
element, and an 8-foot queen
palm on the other side of the
path balances that. The palm
is a variety that will not grow
any taller than it is right now.
The Maze family is always
on the lookout for odd plants.
In the side yard to the right is a
crape myrtle from a nursery in
Tallahassee that bears pink,
fuchsia and purple blossoms
at the same time. In the same
area is a very large cedar tree
with its deep-green foliage and
brown-gray trunk.
Hugging the house on either
side of the centered front en-
trance are plants in pots,
plants in built-in planters and
plants growing in the ground.


There are ixoras, star jasmine,
caladiums, allamanda, plum-
bago and purple shield to
name a few. A large ligustrum
tree shades the front entrance
on one side, and the other side
is a botanical mix of plants.
One I call "the mystery
plant" because it was there
originally and no one quite
knows what it is, but it is very
interesting because it has two
colors of leaves.. Some are
green. and some are orange;
and it's like that all year round.
Lower plantings consist of a
phaleanopsis orchid in a terra-
cotta pot as well as croton,
peace lily and a number of
amaryllis that were transferred
from Janet Maze's grandmoth-
er's 1926 home.
In the side yard to the left of
the house with a backdrop of
plumbago, Mexican petunias
and hibiscus, is a double swing
to sit in and enjoy the sur-
roundings. Janet Maze is fond
of her hibiscus and has three.
The peachy one grows at the
corner of the house, but there
is -also one with pink blooms
and one with purple blooms
growing elsewhere. She also
dabbles in orchids.

little flavor" to its lineup for
2009 with a wide variety of
acts, festival association Presi-
dent Gary Boothe said. The
lineup ranges ,from country
superstar.and festival veteran
George Jones to the rhythm 'n'
blues and pop group Kool &
the:Gang.to Christian actThird
Day.
.."We want to get something
for everybody," Boothe said. -
Swift, 18, who won anAmer-
ican Music Award recently, ap-
peals to fans 12 to 18, Davis


said.
. Other highlights of the di-
verse lineup include Julianne
Hough, who recently an-
nounced she's leaving ABC's
popular show "Dancing With
the Stars" to pursue her coun-
try music career; Simpson,
best known for her "Dukes of
Hazzard" short shorts and re-
lationship with Dallas Cow-
boys quarterback Tony Romo;
and Foxworthy, who hosts the
Fox reality show "Are You
Smarter Than a 5th Grader?"
Foxworthy is the first comedi-
an to appear as a headline act.
Newsome said the enter-
tainment committee spends
about a year looking for talent,
starting its search pretty soon


after each festival is conclud-
ed. They brainstorm for acts
they might be interested in,
then go through the list and try
to sign artists.
Newsome likens it to a giant
puzzle, and he and co-chair-
man W.D. "Dub" McGinnes Jr.
have to make all the pieces fit;
in this case, 22 entertainers
spread throughout the 11-day
festival. Acts that would appeal
to older festival visitors are
generally booked for the daily
3:30 p.m. shows, while the 7:30 .
p.m. shows are geared for
younger, fans, with premium
acts on Sundays, he said.

Pitcher Decides


On Saint Leo

New coach made the decision easy.


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - With his arm
and the accolades it has
helped gather, and some great
work in the classroom to boot,
Durant senior Austin Buck
could have had his choice of
many a Division I baseball
programs.
But Buck instead will be
going to Saint Leo University, a
Division II school near Dade
City. The decision at first
seems curious, but then does
not take long to understand.
In June, Saint Leo hired Russ
McNickle as its head coach.
McNickle, who helped lead
Florida Southern College to a
national title and more recent-
ly was pitching coach for Mis-
sissippi State University, made
signing Buck his first priority.
"I really felt good about
him," said Buck, who made his
commitment last month at a
ceremony at Durant High. "He
told me I was his main recruit.
I know this is a place I can be a
four-year starter."
Buck actually was not a
starter last year for the Cou-
gars, who went with two re-
turning arms in the starting
rotation. But Buck was very
valuable as the top man in the
Durant bullpen and will defi-
nitely move to the top of the
rotation this spring.
This past summer, Buck's
stock went up, thanks to his
work with a top-notch Ama-
teur Athletic Union squad,
Team Akadema. In the past
year, dozens of colleges were


in contact with Buck about
possibly coming to play for
them. Buck became the sec-
ond-most-sought-after base-
ball recruit in Durant history
behind Carmine Giardina.
"I was leaning out of state,
like an East Tennessee State or
maybe a Furman in South Car-
olina," Buck said. "I really like
to hunt, I'm an outdoorsman.
But I looked into it and St. Leo
does have a skeet shooting
range one exit away - and I
think I can do some hog hunt-
ing."
Academics were not a prob-
lem, as Buck has the highest
grade-point average, 4.90, on
the Cougars baseball team. He
transferred to Durant from
Grace Christian in Brandon.
On the mound, Buck dis-
plays a fastball approaching 90
miles per hour and over the
summer was able to get in
plenty of work on the field and
off.
"Pretty much whenever I
was not pitching, I was work-
ing out," he said. "My legs are a
lot stronger. I can't gain any
weight [he's 6 feet 2 inches tall
and weighs 185 pounds] but
I've lost a lot of the fat."
Durant's new baseball
coach, Butch Valdes, said Buck
has good command of four
pitches.
As for his, college coach,
McNickle oversaw the pitchers
for the Mississippi State team
that made the 2007 College

Coronary Artery Disease is the number one killer in-
the U.S.. An estimated 64 million people in the U.S. have
Cardiovascular Disease - nearly 1 in 5 men and women. Of that
number, 13 million have Coronary Heart Disease, the leading
cause of heart attacks.
Nuclear Stress Testing is especially useful in diagnosing
Coronary Artery Disease and blockages in coronary arteries.
Dr. Max Rattes opened the first in-office Nuclear Stress Test
Laboratory in Plant City in December of 2000. Nuclear stress
testing produces images of the heart indicating areas that are
receiving less blood, indicating trouble spots.
Heart attack symptoms include discomfort or pain in chest,
arms, back, neck, or jaw, shortness of breath, nausea, or
light-headedness.

Six- and 7-year-olds win first Super Bowl.


By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - It took only a
few weeks to realize that the
Plant City Dolphins Flyweights
football team was bound for a
great season.
That reality came to its full
conclusion with the first-ever
Super Bowl championship for
the Dolphins in the Flyweight
age group, for 6- and 7-year-
olds. Plant City beat the Bran-
don Bears 25-7 in a game
played Nov. 22 at Jenkins High

"That was the best team I've
ever coached," said head
coach Armand Cotnoir, who
has been involved with the
Dolphins organization for 10
years.
The Dolphins went through
the season with an 11-0 record
and easily dispatched their two
playoff opponents.
Several elements set this
Dolphins group apart. Physical

talent was obvious from the
start, but so was a team chem-
istry like none Cotnoir has ever
witnessed.
"They were physically better
than the other teams we
played; you could tell that right
away," he said. "But there was
so much teamwork. No argu-
ing; no one thought they were
better than anyone else."
Even after they wrapped up
the West Coast Youth Football
Conference championship
with the Super Bowl victory,
the Dolphins were not finished
displaying their dominance.
Against four teams from the
Pasco and Pinellas areas, the
Dolphins went 4-0 playing in
the New Port Richey PAL Tur-
key Bowl Tournament the
weekend after Thanksgiving.
That gave the Dolphins a final
record of 17-0.
While their opponents were
made up of all-star squads
from the various leagues, the
Dolphins just brought their
normal team - and easily won
all four games.
"It was such a pleasure. Oth-
er team parents were coming
up and saying how well-coach-
ed the Plant City kids were,"
Cotnoir said.
His coaching staff is made
up of T.J. Messick, Casey

World Series. And the star of
that MSU pitching staff, Justin
Piggott, has recently been
named the new pitching coach
at Saint Leo. New Saint Leo
assistant Lee Parks also fol-
lowed McNickle; he was the
catcher ,at MSU when Jona-
than Papelbon, the Boston Red
Sox closer, was there.
"That says a lot that about
Coach McNickle that all of
these coaches are following


Christian, Danny Coton, John
Darrow, Les Miller, Rick Lott,
Willie Gardner and team mom
Kim Cotnoir.
The Super Midget Dolphins
won their division with an 8-2
record but lost to the Brandon
Bears 26-12 in the semifinals.
The other Dolphins team to
get a playoff victory was the JV
squad, which edged Brandon's
Broncos 22-21 before falling to
the other Brandon franchise,
the Steelers, 27-14.
For the - champion Fly-
weights, the best part of it all
might have been what came
after the victory.
"When I won a Super Bowl
two years ago coaching a high-
er age group, we all get Super
Bowl jackets," Cotnoir said.
"So I'd wear mine every night
out there and practice and,
man, did the kids want one.
Getting that Super Bowl jacket
is a big thing."
Here are the members of the
champion Flyweight Dolphins:
Keyshawn Gardner, Kevhawn
Ragins, Tyreke Harrison, Park-
er Messick, Cameron Cotnoir,
Chip Marion, Michael Coton,
Conner Murphy, Johni

him from a big school like that
down to Saint Leo," Buck said.
Last year Saint Leo, which
competes in the Sunshine
State Conference against
schools such as the University
of Tampa and Florida South-
ern, went 30-22 on the season.
Just last week, Buck was
named as a 2009 Under Ar-
mour Pre-Season All-Ameri-
can recognizing him as one of
the top senior players in the
nation. Past members of the
squad include Rays playoffs
star B.J. Upton and New York

Raiders come from
behind and even
the score at
halftime.
By DAREK SHARP
dsharp@tampatrib.com
PLANT CITY - Plant City High
enjoyed the advantage over its
rival last season, as the Raiders
put together a run all the way
to the third round of the state
boys basketball tournament.
It looks like the 2008-09 ver-
sion of the rivalry is going to be
pretty even.
The Raiders and Cougars
might have both been a little
on the frenetic side, under-
standable as the basketball
season is still in its early stages.
But what they lacked in polish
was made up for in drama.
Durant won the game 55-52.
Plant City's gymnasium was
filled Dec. 2 with fans and
they, like the players, were into
the game throughout.
"Our kids made some big
plays at both ends," Durant
coach Jeff Shotwell said. "The
game had very little flow, but I
think the Plant City kids did a
good job of being disruptive
and playing off the emotion
that comes with the game."
With the victory, Durant
claimed the Ron Frost Trophy,
which goes to one of the rival
schools when it wins on the


other's home court.
The game featured a one-
on-one matchup of the team's
leading scorers, Durant's A.J.
Garden and Plant City's Josh
Thiebe, that turned into some
trash talking, which had to be
quieted by a referee. Thiebe
had a three-point attempt to
force overtime, but it was
blocked by Durant's Jeff
Thomas.
"Thiebe did an awesome job
of forcing A.J. to be a jump
shooter, and he really stepped
up and carried them at times,"
Shotwell said. The key move to
slow down Thiebe, who scored
31 points twice for Plant City in
preseason victories, was put-
ting sophomore Andre Nation
on him defensively.
Both teams are going at it
this year without a starter from
last year's squad who could
still be suiting up. Durant no
longer has the services of John
Mitchell, though Thomas is
filling that role quite well, as
Mitchell is concentrating on
his running career. .
The Raiders are without the
inside presence of Denzel
Drone, the football standout
who decided not to play hoops
this season. He was one of the
factors in last year's success,
when Plant City made the
playoffs for the first time since
1991. Three other key members
of that team - Channing
Woodall, Rod Henderson and
Steve Hardnett - all graduat-
ed.


So far players such as guards
Brown Peterson, Kenny Adams
and returned David O'Calla-
ghan have received playing
time, and sophomore Stephen
McIntyre has shown promise.
Inside, Alton Honors and Chris
Smith are the starters.
Durant looked like it would
blow out the Raiders, using a
press to gain a 21-7 lead after
one quarter. But Plant City
would turn the tables around,
outscoring the Cougars by the
same margin to make for a
28-28 halftime score.
"In our locker room, we
looked like we were getting
blown out, and I'm sure they
were very excited in [the Raid-
er] locker room. So we showed
some character in overcoming
a heck of a comeback," Shot-
well said.
The teams play again Jan. 9
. at Durant.
With the victory, Durant im-
proved to 3-1 on the season.
The Cougars started with a
good road win over Newsome,
then played a tournament at
Tampa Prep, where it beat
Bayshore Christian 68-37 then
lost to the hosts 59-51.
Durant's girls also won their
first meeting with Plant City,
51-45 on Dec. 2. Five Cougars,
Rachel Peterson, Eryka Wil-
liams, Taylor Broadnax, Janae
Lancaster and Ashley Nelson,
scored at least seven points
each. Quet Shaw had 17 and
Tekeyah Clark added 15 for the
Raiders.

By NICHOLAS J.E. MURRAY
nmurray@tampatrib.com
The Brandon Blue Wave
swimming standout Jason
Taylor took two top-10 finish-
es, including a third-place in
the 1,650 yard freestyle at the
ConocoPhillips Short Course
National Championships in
Atlanta last weekend.
Taylor, who has commit-
ted to the University of Flori-
da and is a member of the
U.S. junior national team,
recorded a time of 15 min-
utes, 7.05 seconds on Satur-
day to win his heat in the
1,650. He trailed only the
University of Michigan's
Matt Patton (4:50.23), and
the University of Alabama's
Mark Randall (15:00.83).
Taylor has finished 10th in
the 500 free earlier in the
week, finishing second in
4:23.65 in the 'B' final. Tay-
lor's time was only a fraction
outside the state record in
the 500 free he set while win-
ning the Class 2A state cham-
pionship for Newsome last
month.
Other locals also had
standout performances at the
meet. St. Petersburg Aquat-
ics' Melanie Margalis finished
seventh in the 400 individual
medley in a time of 4:17.04,
and took ninth overall in the
200 individual medley, win-
ning the 'B' final in a time of
1:59.58.
St Petersburg Aquatics'
teammate Megan Romano
also had a solid meet, finish-
ing 15th in the 100 backstroke
in 55.27. Romano also fin-
ished 20th in the 50 free,
recording a time of 23.00 in
the 'C' final. SPA and Semi-
nole High's Kaitlin Frehling
finished 15th in the 50 free,
recording a 23.24 in the 'B'
final.

Flames Reach
Semifinals At Disney
The Brandon Flames girls
Under-14 soccer team com-
pleted what has been a
strong fall by reaching the
semifinals of the Disney Ju-
nior Soccer Showcase at the
Wide World of Sports Com-
plex on Nov. 30.
The Flames tied at 1 with
Space Coast United, only to
be eliminated in a penalty
shootout after two overtimes.
While the squad had reached


. YOUTH ROUNDUP


the final of the tournament a
year earlier, assistant coach
Laurie Evers, who filled in for
absent coach Randy Belli,
said that the absences the
team had due to injuries
made reaching the semifinals
a great accomplishment.
"They worked extremely
well,' Evers said. "We have
been struggling with injuries
and sickness. We have sever-
al of our starters out with
injuries, so.for them to pull it
together and play the way
they did to make the semifi-
nal was pretty encouraging."
The -squad was missing
Dakota Wilkinson due to a
broken collarbone and Taylor
Decaire with a broken ankle.
In their absence, Evers said
numerous members of the
team elevated their play,
pointing out Brittany and
Amber Coca, Jackie Simpson,
Kalynne Heyer, Aubrey Rig-
gans and Caroline Evers as
keys to the team's success at
Disney.
Laurie Evers said those
players improvement, and
the progress of other mem-
bers of the squad like Ali
Diloia, Scarlett Fox, Emily
Jones, Shea Rhoney, Ashley
Rivera and Dayton Wetherby
can be attributed in part,
thanksto the competition
they've faced this fall. The
Flames, playing up an age-
group, won the Club Direc-
tors League girls Under-15
division without losing a
game (five wins, three ties).
"It definitely makes us
stronger, without a doubt,"
Evers said.
While the Flames aren't
going to play a tournament
over the holiday period, they
have been admitted into the
Region III East Premier
League in the spring, another
challenge to aid their devel-
opment.

Camp Offers First
Taste Of Rugby
With locals teams having
started preparation for the
new rugby season, Saturday
offers a chance for new play-
ers to get acclimated with
game experience at a clinic in
Sarasota. Tampa Pelicans'


coach Dave McFadden, who
will be one of the coaches
running the skills clinic and
camp, the event offers an
opportunity for players to get
immersed in the game.
"Most of the teams lose
about half of their players, or,
in my case, lost more than
half my players due to gradu-
ation last year," McFadden
said. "So we all have to re-
cruit new players out, and
the thing that is toughest
about that is the boys when
they first come, they really
don't know what to expect.
"This camp is nice because
it gives them a little informa-
tion about the technical as-
pects of rugby, how to play a
scrum, what's a lineout, how
you tackle properly, how to
pass properly. We have 10
stations they pass through,
about 15 minutes a station."
After the skill drills, the
players will compete in play
30-minute scrimmages, with
squads rotating in and out.
"That is the first game
experience these new guys
are going to have," McFad-
den said. "Last year it was
like seeing a bunch of guys
on Christmas Day after the
scrimmage was over, their
eyes were wide. ... It really
helps to keep the momentum
going into the season and get
the boys excited, and it also
helps them understand why a
coach would have them do
some of the drills we do at
practice."
The Pelicans only have
eight players returning this
season. While half of those
have represented the Florida
All-Star team - Steven Gon-
zalez, Charles Messal, Jake
McFadden and Zane Johnson
- the camp is going to give
their new members impor-
tant experience ahead of the
start of competitive games.
"If you're going to be able
to win a championship at any
level, you've got to be able to
play the game technically
well," McFadden said. "This
gets you off on the right foot
for doing that. It's hard to
explain to a player who's new
to rugby, what offsides it,
what coming over the top of
a ruck is. We use these camps
to teach those skills."

reached at (813) 259-8243.
