INSIDE By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPasco County officials are upping the ante in their bid to keep the Dick's Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions,a national lacrosse tournament,in Wesley Chapel. The competition,staged annually over the Christmas holidays,draws roughly 80 teams from across the United States and Canada.It rings up an estimated $3 million impact on the local economy,said Eric Keaton,communications manager for Pasco County. The tournament has been held in Wesley Chapel since 2008,but is now being courted by IMG Academies,an elite athletic training facility in Bradenton. IMG is offering a number of enticements, including $40,000,compared to $25,000 in Pasco County's current agreement,Keaton said.IMG also has 17 fields at one location, compared to 14 fields at two locations in Wesley Chapel,he added. From the tournament organizer's perspective,it is more convenient to stage the event at one location,Keaton said.IMG also has security and the ability to broadcast games to the Internet. On the plus side,Wesley Chapel is home to Saddlebrook Resort,an internationally known destination with tennis,golf and spa facilities,a popular choice among many families traveling to the tournament,Keaton said.Wesley Chapel also is closer to Tampa International Airport and attractions in Tampa and Orlando. Wesley Chapel has extensive experience with the tournament,Keaton added.The Wesley Chapel Athletic Association and the See LACROSSE,page13 Businesses to county: Save lacrosse Aplayer from FCAElite faces a player from Kanienkehaka Krunch in the Elite Championship game.

Four local students were selected by patients at St.Joseph's Children's Hospital,with help from Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos,as finalists for Kids Are Heroes,a hospital program that has recognized more than 1,300 children from the region since 1996.The top three finishers in each age group were honored on Feb.20,from among 113 nominees. KIDSareHEROES Connor Rakoczy, of Odessa, placed first in the 5-8 division.Heroes in everyday lifeFor the stories of these KID HEROES,see page 5 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comSt.Joseph's Hospital-North gave a boost to the healthcare of Lutz,Land O'Lakes and Odessa when it opened in 2010,and its cardiac catheterization lab is continuing that same mission. "I don't know that we had a good understanding of how busy the lab would be when we first opened and what the need would be for this community,"said Dr. Christopher Pastore,medical director at the cath lab."I think that we were really taken aback by the need this community had for cardiac services." The cath lab started doing diagnostics on Feb.15,2010.It was able to start doing interventions,such as fixing blockages with stents and angioplasties,on June 1,2010 after completing 300 diagnoses. "Since the hospital opened chest pain has been one of the top two presenting complaints in the emergency room,"said Pastore,who has worked in the industry for 20 years."We did 300 diagnostic caths long before I think anyone anticipated." The lab has performed 96 interventions in the last 12 months along with 577 diagnostic caths.It primarily uses caths that go in through the wrist instead of the traditional route through the groin.In fact,90 percent are done this way. "I think this has been a major factor inDr. Christopher Pastore and Belinda Manuel stand in one of the two catheterization labs at St. Joseph's Hospital-North.

"Hopefully,they will succeed and they'll be going back to those same lenders for a loan of $100,000 or a million." Recently,$10,000 contributions came from Wells Fargo Bank and Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union,with Saint Leo University adding an additional $25,000 to the pot. The 26 million small businesses in American today are a key part of the American economy,and a major generator of jobs,so it is important to support them, the EDC notes. The loan itself is only part of what the EDC is offering,with Hagen noting,"It's not just a lack of money that sinks a business.A lack of experience can be worse." With that in mind,the microloan program requires all loan applicants to participate in a mentoring program led by a volunteer group made up of longtime business people known as SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives).The group is sponsored by the Small Business Association. "We will teach,we will advise and we will send them (applicants) to the appropriate seminars,"said Pat Fairman,an 85-year-old Port Richey resident who ran an electronics company in Connecticut and is a member of the local SCORE chapter."We have retirees who were successful in all areas of business,including marketing,finance,technology,you name it." He said he enjoys helping the next generation of business owners get a foothold. 8534 N.

Guidance also will be offered by the faculty at Saint Leo University and technical assistance by the university's students. Getting a solid plan together is the key for business first-timers,Fairman said. "So often,new business operators will be thinking about things on a day-to-day basis, not six months out,like they should,"he said."We force them to think long term." Fairman feels that without such a program,the business community could become stagnant. "Banks have such a rigid set of rules,so many requests don't fit neatly inside the box,but it could still be a good loan,"he said."These microloans and the counseling we'll offer should make a big difference out there." Anyone interested in the microloan program can contact the Pasco EDC at (813) 926-0827 or visit www.pascoedc.com. Saint Leo students and faculty will be key participants in helping small businesses in the microloan program succeed.

The award came shortly before Belanger retired,effective Feb. 28,from her post as a guidance counselor at Gaither.Nominations on Belanger's behalf extolled her many contributions. Myla Uppercue, guidance department chair at Gaither,said she will miss Belanger. "I have worked in four high schools,and I strongly believe that Becky Belanger is in the top 1 percent of counselors in the county," Uppercue wrote in her nomination of Belanger. Gaither Principal Marie Whelan added: "There is definitely going to be a void in our guidance department upon her departure.I definitely feel Becky is a worthy recipient of this long overdue recognition." Donna Cason,Gaither's assistant principal of curriculum,noted:"The thing that impresses me most about Mrs.Belanger is her commitment to making students a top priority and her belief that all children can succeed." Belanger said her retirement will be shortlived.She signed up for a retirement program before the rules changed.She intends to apply to work as a guidance counselor again, in a public or private school.SAND PINE BARBECUEThe Sand Pine Elementary Parent-Teacher Association is hosting its first family barbecue catered by Dickey's Barbecue on Friday, March 16 at 6:30 p.m.in the school's cafeteria.The event includes dessert,a DJ,line dancing,a balloon artist,and games.Tickets are $5 and must be purchased in advance.

AINSLEIGH WALL, LAND O' LAKES9-12 DIVISION, SECOND PLACENine-year-old Ainsleigh Wall already knows a bit about perseverance. After hearing a sermon about giving back at First United Church of Land O'Lakes,she got involved in her Sunday school's effort to buy a cow for the Heifer International program. After those efforts fell short,Wall,now a fourth-grader at Oakstead Elementary,decided to continue the quest at school. With her principal's permission,she launched a weeklong Candy Canes for Cows campaign,selling candy canes for a quarter each,with proceeds to purchase farm animals for families in Africa.She used savings from her allowance to buy a supply of 300 candy canes.By the end of the week, she had enlisted the help of other students and they had sold more than 4,000 candy canes. They raised enough money for a cow,as well as a goat,a pig and some chickens for Heifer International,which donates farm animals to families in Africa. "It just got out of control,"said Ainsleigh's mom,Heather."Kids just wanted to buy them." The award winner said she was pleased by the honor and happy she could help Heifer International."I really liked the program." Ainsleigh is the daughter of Heather and Todd Wall of the Valencia Gardens neighborhood in Land O'Lakes.Annette Armstrong, guidance counselor at Oakstead Elementary, nominated her for the award. CONNOR RAKOCZY, ODESSA5-8 DIVISION, FIRST PLACEWhen 7-year-old Connor Rakoczy heard last year that the home of a child in his mom's second-grade classroom had burned in a fire,he wanted to help. The child's mother was burned and the fire seriously injured the father,who went into a coma,said Amy Rakoczy,Connor's mom. Connor,now in second-grade at Odessa Elementary,considered selling lemonade but his mom suggested a gum sale instead. They got permission from their Grey Hawk neighborhood and set up a stand near the subdivision's entrance. They sold lots of gum that first day,but also tied up traffic and aroused some complaints.They moved to a quieter location, near a park,to continue the sale,said Connor's mom. They sold enough gum to raise more than $300.Connor's mom and his dad, Steve,then reached out to relatives and the family chipped in $400. Connor isn't the only youngster in the family getting involved.His little sister, Paulina,now 4,got into the act,too. Connor said it was exciting to win the first-place award.He thought it was cool to meet Tampa Bay Lightning player Steven Stamkos,and the second-grader is eager to use the hockey ticket he got in his goody bag to attend a game.SYDNEY MARCELL FISHER,LAND O' LAKES9-12 DIVISION, THIRD PLACEAfter playing inside the clubhouse at Concord Station,a community off SR 54 in Land O'Lakes,Sydney Marcell Fisher headed home. As he passed the community's swimming pool,he saw a toddler reach for a ball and fall in.Fisher,now a seventh-grader at Rushe Middle School,jumped into the pool and pulled out the toddler. When he got home,he told his dad,Rod Fisher,what had happened. Rod and his wife,Tracee,were so impressed by their son's actions that they nominated him for a "Kids are Heroes" award. For his part,Sydney didn't expect recognition,his dad said. As they were getting ready to attend the awards ceremony,Sydney told his dad:"I don't want to be called a hero.I was doing what I was supposed to do." Rod Fisher said he was delighted his son was one of the top three finishers:"I was extremely proud.I felt blessed to have a child that was able to do something to help someone else and to be modest and humble about it." The young man said he feels honored by the award. His dad said he hopes the recognition bestowed on his son will inspire him to continue doing good,whether anyone notices or not. That's what builds character,Rod Fisher said. Ainsleigh Wall and Steven Stamkos. Marc Berson in Jamaica. Connor Rakoczy and his gumstand. Sydney Marcell Fisher. KIDSareHEROES

It was able to start doing interventions, such as fixing blockages with stents and angioplasties, on June 1, 2010 after completing 300 diagnoses. “Since the hospital opened chest pain has been one of the top two presenting complaints in the emergency room,” said Pastore, who has worked in the industry for 20 years. “We did 300 diagnostic caths long before I think anyone anticipated.” The lab has performed 96 interventions in the last 12 months along with 577 diagnostic caths. It primarily uses caths that go in through the wrist instead of the traditional route through the groin. In fact, 90 percent are done this way. “I think this has been a major factor in our success of reducing our complication level to an incredible low that I don’t think has been seen in many labs,” Pastore said. He then added, “The chance of bleeding after is much less and the patient’s comfort level is better.” The lab also has ways to correct a heart that isn’t beating properly, known as electrophysiology “That’s done where we can put in pacemakers, defibrillators and actually fix rhythm problems with radiofrequency ablation,” Pastore said. Other diagnostic procedures can be performed at the lab to help decide what kind of intervention should be done, or if medication can relieve the heart problem. Basically the only thing the lab can’t do in terms of cardiac treatment is open-heart surgery or transplants. Pastore said the main benefit of the cath lab to the community isn’t just having its services, but increasing the speed with which such procedures can be done on someone suffering heart problems. Facility manager Belinda Manuel, who has worked in the industry for 22 years, put it simply. “With heart problems, time is muscle,” Manuel said. Pastore added, “If someone is having a heart attack, the muscle starts dying right away. So you have to get to the hospital, get your diagnosis procedure and get it fixed, and if you can do that fast you can preserve more of the heart muscle and the outcome is better. … If your mother or father was looking for a home in this area you’d feel a lot safer knowing they could get good care quickly if they needed it.” Pastore said the dead heart muscle becomes a scar, which can result in additional rhythm problems later. Much like the rest of the hospital, the lab stays away from the traditional sterile-looking white walls with bright lights in favor of more calming surroundings. Patients getting a cath will see murals of beach scenes while also listening to soothing music. “Our first priority is always to give the highest quality of care that we can,” Pastore said. “If you can do that you’re providing real service. I think our second priority is to achieve the highest level of patient satisfaction we possibly could and to really optimize our patients’ experience with the healthcare industry.” The facility currently has two cath labs that can perform the same procedures, but was designed in a way to easily add another two as the demand rises. A team is available 24/7, so treatment can always be administered. “I don’t think the objective the first few years was to blow the top off the capacity of procedures done,” Pastore said. “I think the primary objective was if we’re going to open a cath lab, to do it the right way from the beginning by offering the best care and patient satisfaction. If we can do that, then the sky is the limit in the future.” For more information on the cath lab, call (813) 443-2046.Shot in the arm to heart health

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 29,2012 13 county's athletics department have been involved with the tournament since its inception. "IMG would have to start from scratch," Keaton said. Keaton said he has been in talks with NDP Lacrosse,which operates the tournament,trying to keep the national event in Wesley Chapel. "I think they're very receptive,"Keaton said. Frank Britton,secretary of the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association,is concerned about local lacrosse players having a chance to be seen by college coaches if the tournament relocates.He's also worried about the negative impact on the local economy. Members of the business community are calling on the county to do what it can to keep the tournament in Wesley Chapel. "If they're going to spend hotel tax dollars keeping something here,spend it keeping this,"said Todd Patrick,sales director for Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa-Wesley Chapel,2740 Cypress Ridge Blvd. Patrick said losing the Tournament of Champions could lead to losing the Derek Pieper Memorial Cup,a significant loss because the Derek Pieper contest is the only Florida qualifying tournament for the Tournament of Champions,and also brings in significant business. Patrick believes IMG will be able toLACROSSE,from page 1make a case for the Derek Pieper tournament,if it is able to secure the Tournament of Champions. Britton said he thinks it is more likely that the Derek Pieper tournament would continue in Wesley Chapel,but that IMG would host an additional qualifying tournament,which would reduce the number of teams participating at Derek Pieper. Patrick said his hotel does about 300 room nights for the Derek Pieper tournament and about 400 room nights for the Tournament of Champions.The impact goes beyond losing those bookings,though, Patrick said.Losing that business would lower the room rate the hotel could charge, he said,noting the effect of supply and demand. Patrick said his hotel wants to do what it can to help keep the tournament,including offering rebates to hotel guests in town for the tournament. The county needs to work out an enticing package,Patrick said."These guys (tournament organizers) don't really care where it is,they're just looking for the better deal." Hotels aren't the only losers if the tournaments relocate,Patrick added.Many local businesses will suffer as well,he said.Team parents often ask him:"Where's the Publix? Where is the Walgreens? "We sent one entire team to Cobb Theatre.We sent many teams to Hungry Harry's (Family) Bar-B-Que and many teams Aplayer from FCAElite receives congratulations from Pasco County commissioners Jack Mariano and Henry Wilson, upon the team's championship win.to Texas Roadhouse. "Almost every team made a team trip to Wiregrass mall,"Patrick said.Greg Lenners,general manager for The Shops at Wiregrass,said there's no doubt the regional mall at SR 56 and Bruce B. Downs Boulevard picks up business from people attending the annual tournaments. Mall retailers pick up foot traffic but Lenners suspects mall restaurants would suffer the biggest blow if the tournaments move."If there is something TDC (Tourist Development Council) can do,I would strongly encourage it,"Lenners said. Jeff Miller,chairman of the Wesley Chapel Economic Development Committee, has written county commissioners urging them to do what they can.The impact goes beyond the spending by visitors,Miller said. It also affects the community's ability to reach a national audience,leading to longterm consequences,Miller said. Pasco County Commissioner Pat Mulieri agreed with business leaders that the county must address the issue. "We need to match the money,"Mulieri said,via email."It is being worked on." our success of reducing our complication level to an incredible low that I don't think has been seen in many labs,"Pastore said.He then added,"The chance of bleeding after is much less and the patient's comfort level is better."

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comTodd Donohoe was named Freedom High's sixth football coach since the 2006 season on Feb.20,according to Patriots athletic director Elijah Thomas. "His organizational skills and his competitive nature were some of the things that separated him from the other 20 candidates,"Thomas said."We're happy to have Todd.We want him to be here for 20 years leading the football program.He wants to do right by the kids."It is the third coaching stint for Donohoe, who was already on Freedom's staff as a physical education teacher.He resigned from Strawberry Crest before the 2011 season amid pressure from school administration. The year away gave him time to recharge."Coaching is in my blood,"Donohoe said. "When I left Crest I knew I wanted to coach again somehow and somewhere."Donohoe coached at his alma mater Dunedin from 1996-98,compiling a 7-23 record.He started the program at Strawberry Crest,going 6-10 in varsity contests from 2009-10.Freedom's new leader also spent four years as an Armwood assistant.Donohoe replaces Tchecoy Blount,who coached the Patriots to a 6-14 record during his two seasons at the helm."I applied for a couple places,but when the job opened at Freedom it was the perfect opportunity,"Donohoe said. "I'm really excited to take this program into the future and make it into the winning program it should be.This is where I want to be."Freedom has made the playoffs only twice since the school opened in 2002. Both postseason appearances were as a district runner-up in 2006 and 2009,and both times the Patriots were knocked out in the first round. Thomas said part of the reason the football program has failed to win consistently is the revolving door of coaches and predicts Donohoe is the person to put a stop to that constant changing of the guard. "I absolutely believe he's the right person for the job,"Thomas said."He wants to be here for the long haul and we want him to be here for a long time too.We're all looking forward to the spring and fall football seasons." Donohoe is also the Patriots'boys track and field coach.He said he will remain that program's leader for at least this season and possibly into the future. "We've got a lot of good runners and field athletes coming back and I think we'll be able to compete at a high level this year," Donohoe said."I didn't want their season to be hurt by me becoming the football coach."Todd Donohoe to lead Freedom football Todd Donohoe By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comAnyone who has seen a Gaither High sports event has likely seen Paul Barrett. The 6-foot-2,175-pound senior has been on the Cowboys'football team the last two years and a member of the soccer and track and field squads since coming to Gaither from Alonso as a sophomore. Barrett played wide receiver in football, making five catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns to help the squad go 9-4 and reach the regional finals for the second time in the program's 27-year history. During the winter in soccer he posted six goals and seven assists while playing midfield and forward.The Cowboys won a district and regional championship to make back-to-back state final four appearances this year with Barrett's help. Now as the track season begins,Barrett is trying to achieve more than he did as a junior when he won three district championships and reached the Class 4A state meet in the 300-hurdles. Barrett said the one challenge he has when the seasons shift is transitioning from sport to sport. "It takes time when one season ends and the other starts because they're all so different,"Barrett said."Moving from football to soccer was hard,and then for track it's nothing like soccer.The first week of track I was so tired." The deep playoff runs for the football and soccer teams meant Barrett joined his next squad weeks after practice began. "He's still getting into the track season," said Gaither second-year boys track and field coach Jeff Ditman."It's not a bad thing because it's great that he does so many sports.The determination to succeed is there with him.He's committed and he's got nothing but potential. "He definitely brings the work ethic," Ditman continued."He's an interesting kid, and I mean that in a great way.He's a funloving kid and he brings a certain energy to the track that's necessary.It can be a grind. You're grinding away in practice because you're not practicing you're training.He brings a fun-loving energy that really picks people up." Eric Sims,the Cowboys'boys soccer coach,said Barrett filled holes created this year after losing 10 seniors from the previous squad. "He's really big and fast,"Sims said."He's really hard to stop once he gets going on a run.We needed his offense and he's a big reason we got back to the final four." Ditman is also an assistant on the football team,giving him the chance to see Barrett in very dissimilar activities. "He's always prepared,and the other thing is he's a kid who takes AP courses and works really hard in the classroom,"Ditman said."It's hard to do everything he does and excel in three sports,especially nowadays.It just seems like kids specialize.To actually compete in three seasons at a high level is really rare." Barrett said playing three sports gives him insights those who specialize in one don't have. "I learned a lot from football that I could use in soccer," Barrett said."Football is such a team sport because you have to use all the players to win.I tried to do that in soccer and use all our players.That's what our team was in soccer because we used each other." Barrett was born in Montego Bay,Jamaica and came to Hillsborough County in the sixth grade.He said soccer is the sport he has played the longest going back to his earliest memories."I did track to stay in shape after the soccer season,"Barrett said."During the summer I tried to do club soccer,but it was too expensive so I started playing football."Barrett is unfazed by his busy schedule between school and athletics. "The time management really isn't that hard,"Barrett said."A lot of kids exaggerate that part.I guess it's just the mentality I grew up with." Barrett's favorite sports memory at Gaither was playing at the University of Tampa in the 5A state semifinals as a junior. Second is winning the high jump district title a year ago,besting Alonso's Brandon Holloway who is considered one of the top running back prospects nationally."I mean I beat Brandon Holloway,and how many people can say that,"Barrett said with a smile."I can say I beat Brandon Holloway.He's going to be famous some day."Barrett has no set plans for college,but would like to play soccer or compete in track on scholarship or as a walk-on. Wherever he goes he won't forget the hours he has spent on the Cowboys'gridiron, pitch and track. "I've really loved my three years here," Barrett said."I'll always remember being here."

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 29,2012 15 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Academy at the Lakes girls basketball team fell in the Class 2A final four 67-46 to the eventual state champions Tallahassee FAMU on Feb.21 at The Lakeland Center. The loss ends the Wildcats'(23-6) season two wins shy of the ultimate goal,but the trip to the state semifinals illustrates how far the program has come from one that went 0-15 two years ago. "They competed really well and I'm proud of them,"said 20-year coach Karim Nohra.Nohra came to the academy two years ago after two seasons at Wesley Chapel High. During his decades of coaching he's been at final fours many times,but always as a spectator.He'd taken eight teams to regional finals before breaking through this year."I thanked them over and over for bringing me after 20 years to the final four and to this arena,"Nohra said."Now I got to be on the floor,which was a great experience for me,but also for them." It was especially great for junior guard Andrea Mauger,who played for Nohra at Wesley Chapel as a freshman and the last two years at the academy. "Some of my best friends played for Jefferson when they went to the final four my freshman year,and it was just,wow,you know I'd love to be here someday,"said Mauger,who had 18 points and six rebounds."That's been my dream and my goal since that moment I came here.To be not sitting in the stands and to walk in here,you know that's a privilege.There's only four teams in Class 2A that get to do that.You have to remember that in the back of our mind that we're very privileged and very blessed to be in this position we're in." Nohra's gameplan was to slow the game down with a lot of passes in a half-court offense. "I wanted a little more controlled environment;a little more controlled atmosphere for our team,"Nohra said."Early on we weren't looking to score as much.I told them if they have an open jumper yes, but let's move the ball around a little,get a feel for the floor,get a feel for what they're trying to do against us.It's a big arena.You don't always get to shoot in this type of environment.It generally throws shooters off." The Wildcats'shots were off early,hitting one of 10 from the floor in the first quarter. FAMU (28-4) led 15-4 after the first 8 minutes and 34-21 at halftime,but academy kept it close enough for a late run. The Wildcats cut FAMU's lead to nine with just less than 6 minutes remaining thanks to a 17-2 run starting with 1:20 left in the third quarter.That was as close at it got as the Baby Rattlers scored 13 of the next 16 points. "At single digits I thought we had a shot," Nohra said."Then they answered.Yes,we dug ourselves a little bit of a hole,but to our girls'credit they kept fighting."SPORTS Academy's dream season ends in final four SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS CHECK THIS OUT Wildcats claim league titleThe Academy at the Lakes middle school boys basketball team won the Florida West Coast League district championship on the strength of an 11-5 record.The Wildcats went 8-0 against league opponents,which includes such teams as Carrollwood Day and Odessa Christian.

"Size advantage goes to them,"Nohra said."Everybody was telling me about their vaunted press this and vaunted press that. How many times did we turn the ball over to them? Hardly any. We just don't have an answer for that size.Simple as that." Academy gave up only six turnovers,but the Wildcats'press mustered three. "To their credit they handle our press pretty decently,"Nohra said."Most teams try to dribble through it.They passed through it and they have the strength to throw it long, which usually at the 2A level you don't see." Academy senior guard Amelia Oliver,a Sunlake transfer,had a team-high 21 points while adding seven rebounds. "I know if I wasn't here I probably wouldn't have got this far from any other school,"Oliver said."I'm just blessed to be here with everybody." Also new to the team this season was Samantha Fernandez,who came from Oldsmar Christian.The senior point guard was forced to play harder than ever before for Nohra,but would make the move again if given the chance. "We worked over and over on things until it became like second nature,"said Fernandez,who had12 points and six rebounds."This experience has been amazing. I wouldn't take anything back.I love all these girls." Academy at the Lakes senior point guard Samantha Fernandez had 12 points and six rebounds in the state semifinals.

"I was ready for this,"said Wesley Chapel junior Leny Vega."I knew it was going to be a fun time with the team." Aaron Allen and his wife,Sue,organize the Angels games.Their son,Shane,is on the squad. "Shane loves to play,"Aaron said."Just like all the kids on the team he looks forward to coming out each Saturday.No matter if they can hit it 2 feet or 100 feet they look forward to batting and enjoy running the bases." The Angels are the only Dade City program in the division,so the Allens ask local groups like the Boys Scouts or Wildcats football to play. The program started with seven kids last year and has grown to 12.Current players come from Wesley Chapel,New Tampa, Zephyrhills and Dade City,but there are no set boundaries for those who want to join. "Our hope is by the end of this year or next year to have two teams with the Dade City Challengers,"Aaron said. One of the new recruits is Watergrass Ranch Elementary first-grader Dylan Williams,who played with the Angels for the first time on Feb.25.Dylan's mother, Andressa,heard about the team at the Pasco County East Special Olympics games at Wesley Chapel High on Feb.16. "We were ecstatic when I heard about it at the Special Olympics this year,"said Andressa,of Zephyrhills."Dylan played in the regular Little League when he was 4 or 5,and he didn't like it as much,but I think this is going to be really good for him. It's the little things that matter the most to parents who have kids with disabilities.Having a field here each week is just an awesome opportunity." The star of the day was Donald Pitts, who also played last year.The Angels'first baseman hit a pair of inside-the-park home runs in the contest while also playing solidly in the field. "Baseball is a very fun sport,"said Pitts, who lives in Dade City and attends MooreMickens Education Center."I try to hit the ball so hard so I can hit a homer like the Major League." Pitts'favorite player is Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays,and he models his game after him. "I try and hit like him because he hits homers and so do I,"Pitts said. The Wildcats were out of their normal comfort zone on the baseball diamond.VegaChallenge accepted Wesley Chapel football coach Ben Alford, left, shakes hands with Angels'first baseman Donald Pitts during a game on Feb. 25.

The Wildcats (17-10) were playing at home against All Saints'Academy (ASA) in the first regional semifinals game in program history.Tom's nerves got worse as he saw his squad's lead trimmed to six with only a few minutes to play."I was scared to death,"Tom said."I was like Oh no.We can't lose this after being where we were,'but they're a good team,and I'll be honest,a lot of our games have been like this.We don't blow a lot of people out."But this academy squad has already made program history.The Wildcats had never made the playoffs before this year and their 69-61 win over ASA secured their debut in the Class 2A regional finals on Feb 25. Orlando Christian Prep got the better of the academy 78-27,but the trip to the doorstep of the final four is a learning experience for a team that will return all but one starter next year. The academy defeated ASA (10-6) thanks in large part to a 39-point effort from freshman guard Ethan Haslam,Tom's son.The Wildcats'needed Ethan's career-high in scoring to stave off the late-surging Saints. "It's never pretty here,never pretty,"Tom said. The first half anyway was pretty for the academy. The Wildcats burst out to a 10-2 lead.ASA took a time out to try and slow the momentum,but the academy responded with an 8-2 run to mount an 18-4 lead with 2:54 left in opening period. The second quarter followed the trend, with the Wildcats building a commanding 39-18 lead. After three quarters,the game looked even more out of hand.It was the last 8 minutes that had everyone afterward saying how close the game was. A potent Wildcats offense suddenly went stagnant as the Saints started making shots from all over the floor. "I thought we'd worn them down,physically,"Tom said."But they kept shooting,kept making shots and I give them a lot of credit." With less than 5 minutes remaining,ASA cut the lead to 11.Ethan's ensuing and-one layup with 4:15 left were the first points for the academy in the fourth quarter. "The comforting lead kind of led to a lack of energy and a lack of intensity,"Ethan said."And then we just got in the wrong places at the wrong time and they converted on their plays and they hit some big shots." While the Saints drained contested buckets from beyond the arc,the Wildcats kept their lead by standing still at the freethrow line.The academy hit just enough from the charity strip to push the game out of reach. "This team,over the course of the season,in close games we do a lot of things right down the stretch,"Tom said.Land O' Lakes ousted in semisThe Land O'Lakes boys basketball team could not win its first appearance ever in a regional semifinals contest,falling at Winter Haven 60-42. The Gators (22-7) got 16 points from Ernest McClendon,along with 12 from Mike Morrow and eight from Jackson Cannon. The Blue Devils took advantage of their size with 6-foot-6 point guard DeVon Walker, who dropped 22.SPORTS Haslam drops 39 as Wildcats hold off Saints Academy at the Lakes freshman guard Ethan Haslam scored against All Saints'in the regional semifinals. (Photos by Glenn Gefers of www.photosby3g.com) Wildcats senior guard Jarrett Harvey posted 15 points and four rebounds against All Saints'.

INSIDEBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPasco County officials are upping the ante in their bid to keep the Dicks Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions,a national lacrosse tournament,in Wesley Chapel. The competition,staged annually over the Christmas holidays,draws roughly 80 teams from across the United States and Canada.It rings up an estimated $3 million impact on the local economy,said Eric Keaton,communications manager for Pasco County. The tournament has been held in Wesley Chapel since 2008,but is now being courted by IMG Academies,an elite athletic training facility in Bradenton. IMG is offering a number of enticements, including $40,000,compared to $25,000 in Pasco Countys current agreement,Keaton said.IMG also has 17 fields at one location, compared to 14 fields at two locations in Wesley Chapel,he added. From the tournament organizers perspective,it is more convenient to stage the event at one location,Keaton said.IMG also has security and the ability to broadcast games to the Internet. On the plus side,Wesley Chapel is home to Saddlebrook Resort,an internationally known destination with tennis,golf and spa facilities,a popular choice among many families traveling to the tournament,Keaton said.Wesley Chapel also is closer to Tampa International Airport and attractions in Tampa and Orlando. Wesley Chapel has extensive experience with the tournament,Keaton added.The Wesley Chapel Athletic Association and the See LACROSSE,page13 Businesses to county: Save lacrosse Aplayer from FCAElite faces a player from Kanienkehaka Krunch in the Elite Championship game.

Four local students were selected by patients at St.Josephs Childrens Hospital,with help from Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos,as finalists for Kids Are Heroes,a hospital program that has recognized more than 1,300 children from the region since 1996.The top three finishers in each age group were honored on Feb.20,from among 113 nominees. KIDSareHEROES Connor Rakoczy, of Odessa, placed first in the 5-8 division.Heroes in everyday lifeFor the stories of these KID HEROES,see page 5 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comSt.Josephs Hospital-North gave a boost to the healthcare of Lutz,Land OLakes and Odessa when it opened in 2010,and its cardiac catheterization lab is continuing that same mission. I dont know that we had a good understanding of how busy the lab would be when we first opened and what the need would be for this community,said Dr. Christopher Pastore,medical director at the cath lab.I think that we were really taken aback by the need this community had for cardiac services. The cath lab started doing diagnostics on Feb.15,2010.It was able to start doing interventions,such as fixing blockages with stents and angioplasties,on June 1,2010 after completing 300 diagnoses. Since the hospital opened chest pain has been one of the top two presenting complaints in the emergency room,said Pastore,who has worked in the industry for 20 years.We did 300 diagnostic caths long before I think anyone anticipated. The lab has performed 96 interventions in the last 12 months along with 577 diagnostic caths.It primarily uses caths that go in through the wrist instead of the traditional route through the groin.In fact,90 percent are done this way. I think this has been a major factor inDr. Christopher Pastore and Belinda Manuel stand in one of the two catheterization labs at St. Josephs Hospital-North.

Hopefully,they will succeed and theyll be going back to those same lenders for a loan of $100,000 or a million. Recently,$10,000 contributions came from Wells Fargo Bank and Suncoast Schools Federal Credit Union,with Saint Leo University adding an additional $25,000 to the pot. The 26 million small businesses in American today are a key part of the American economy,and a major generator of jobs,so it is important to support them, the EDC notes. The loan itself is only part of what the EDC is offering,with Hagen noting,Its not just a lack of money that sinks a business.A lack of experience can be worse. With that in mind,the microloan program requires all loan applicants to participate in a mentoring program led by a volunteer group made up of longtime business people known as SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives).The group is sponsored by the Small Business Association. We will teach,we will advise and we will send them (applicants) to the appropriate seminars,said Pat Fairman,an 85-year-old Port Richey resident who ran an electronics company in Connecticut and is a member of the local SCORE chapter.We have retirees who were successful in all areas of business,including marketing,finance,technology,you name it. He said he enjoys helping the next generation of business owners get a foothold. 8534 N.

Free In-Home Estimates Youll Adore Youll Adore Our Our FLOORS FLOORS Pasco microloan program bullish on economyWe get as much out of this as the client,Fairman said.The business world has been good to many of us,so now its time we gave something back. Guidance also will be offered by the faculty at Saint Leo University and technical assistance by the universitys students. Getting a solid plan together is the key for business first-timers,Fairman said. So often,new business operators will be thinking about things on a day-to-day basis, not six months out,like they should,he said.We force them to think long term. Fairman feels that without such a program,the business community could become stagnant. Banks have such a rigid set of rules,so many requests dont fit neatly inside the box,but it could still be a good loan,he said.These microloans and the counseling well offer should make a big difference out there. Anyone interested in the microloan program can contact the Pasco EDC at (813) 926-0827 or visit www.pascoedc.com. Saint Leo students and faculty will be key participants in helping small businesses in the microloan program succeed.

The award came shortly before Belanger retired,effective Feb. 28,from her post as a guidance counselor at Gaither.Nominations on Belangers behalf extolled her many contributions. Myla Uppercue, guidance department chair at Gaither,said she will miss Belanger. I have worked in four high schools,and I strongly believe that Becky Belanger is in the top 1 percent of counselors in the county, Uppercue wrote in her nomination of Belanger. Gaither Principal Marie Whelan added: There is definitely going to be a void in our guidance department upon her departure.I definitely feel Becky is a worthy recipient of this long overdue recognition.

Whether its teaching preschoolers in Jamaica,helping at reading festivals for elementary school children,promoting the ins and outs of pool safety or planting trees in Israel,16-year-old Marc Berson,of New Tampa,enjoys being involved. The Freedom High school sophomore is heavily involved in Caf Freedom,a group at the school that promotes literacy among children from low-income families and conducts a pool safety awareness day. Beyond that,Berson has volunteered in Kingston, Jamaica,helping young children learn about shapes, numbers and some of the basics of reading. During a visit to Israel,he planted trees to help improve air quality. Berson was nominated for Kids are Heroesby Rosemary Owens,the assistant principal for curriculum at Freedom High. He said he felt honored to be considered and gratified to be selected. It felt good inside that what I had done in the community had been seen by other people in the community and appreciated,said Berson,who is the son Michael and Ilene Berson. His father was delighted,too.All of the kids who were called out were doing amazing things for the community,he said.For his son to be singled out among the winners was special,Michael Berson said. 813-949-1212 1712 Land OLakes Blvd.Lutz Mon.-Fri. 8am-6pm Sat. 8am-4pmMV#78961 FREEA/C CheckIn lieu of other offers.

Nine-year-old Ainsleigh Wall already knows a bit about perseverance. After hearing a sermon about giving back at First United Church of Land OLakes,she got involved in her Sunday schools effort to buy a cow for the Heifer International program. After those efforts fell short,Wall,now a fourth-grader at Oakstead Elementary,decided to continue the quest at school. With her principals permission,she launched a weeklong Candy Canes for Cows campaign,selling candy canes for a quarter each,with proceeds to purchase farm animals for families in Africa.She used savings from her allowance to buy a supply of 300 candy canes.By the end of the week, she had enlisted the help of other students and they had sold more than 4,000 candy canes. They raised enough money for a cow,as well as a goat,a pig and some chickens for Heifer International,which donates farm animals to families in Africa. It just got out of control,said Ainsleighs mom,Heather.Kids just wanted to buy them. The award winner said she was pleased by the honor and happy she could help Heifer International.I really liked the program. Ainsleigh is the daughter of Heather and Todd Wall of the Valencia Gardens neighborhood in Land OLakes.Annette Armstrong, guidance counselor at Oakstead Elementary, nominated her for the award. When 7-year-old Connor Rakoczy heard last year that the home of a child in his moms second-grade classroom had burned in a fire,he wanted to help. The childs mother was burned and the fire seriously injured the father,who went into a coma,said Amy Rakoczy,Connors mom. Connor,now in second-grade at Odessa Elementary,considered selling lemonade but his mom suggested a gum sale instead. They got permission from their Grey Hawk neighborhood and set up a stand near the subdivisions entrance. They sold lots of gum that first day,but also tied up traffic and aroused some complaints.They moved to a quieter location, near a park,to continue the sale,said Connors mom. They sold enough gum to raise more than $300.Connors mom and his dad, Steve,then reached out to relatives and the family chipped in $400. Connor isnt the only youngster in the family getting involved.His little sister, Paulina,now 4,got into the act,too. Connor said it was exciting to win the first-place award.He thought it was cool to meet Tampa Bay Lightning player Steven Stamkos,and the second-grader is eager to use the hockey ticket he got in his goody bag to attend a game.After playing inside the clubhouse at Concord Station,a community off SR 54 in Land OLakes,Sydney Marcell Fisher headed home. As he passed the communitys swimming pool,he saw a toddler reach for a ball and fall in.Fisher,now a seventh-grader at Rushe Middle School,jumped into the pool and pulled out the toddler. When he got home,he told his dad,Rod Fisher,what had happened. Rod and his wife,Tracee,were so impressed by their sons actions that they nominated him for a Kids are Heroes award. For his part,Sydney didnt expect recognition,his dad said. As they were getting ready to attend the awards ceremony,Sydney told his dad:I dont want to be called a hero.I was doing what I was supposed to do. Rod Fisher said he was delighted his son was one of the top three finishers:I was extremely proud.I felt blessed to have a child that was able to do something to help someone else and to be modest and humble about it. The young man said he feels honored by the award. His dad said he hopes the recognition bestowed on his son will inspire him to continue doing good,whether anyone notices or not. Thats what builds character,Rod Fisher said. Ainsleigh Wall and Steven Stamkos. Marc Berson in Jamaica. Connor Rakoczy and his gumstand. Sydney Marcell Fisher. KIDSareHEROES

I dont know that we had a good understanding of how busy the lab would be when we first opened and what the need would be for this community, said Dr. Christopher Pastore, medical director at the cath lab. I think that we were really taken aback by the need this community had for cardiac services. The cath lab started doing diagnostics on Feb. 15, 2010. It was able to start doing interventions, such as fixing blockages with stents and angioplasties, on June 1, 2010 after completing 300 diagnoses. Since the hospital opened chest pain has been one of the top two presenting complaints in the emergency room, said Pastore, who has worked in the industry for 20 years. We did 300 diagnostic caths long before I think anyone anticipated. The lab has performed 96 interventions in the last 12 months along with 577 diagnostic caths. It primarily uses caths that go in through the wrist instead of the traditional route through the groin. In fact, 90 percent are done this way. I think this has been a major factor in our success of reducing our complication level to an incredible low that I dont think has been seen in many labs, Pastore said. He then added, The chance of bleeding after is much less and the patients comfort level is better. The lab also has ways to correct a heart that isnt beating properly, known as electrophysiology Thats done where we can put in pacemakers, defibrillators and actually fix rhythm problems with radiofrequency ablation, Pastore said. Other diagnostic procedures can be performed at the lab to help decide what kind of intervention should be done, or if medication can relieve the heart problem. Basically the only thing the lab cant do in terms of cardiac treatment is open-heart surgery or transplants. Pastore said the main benefit of the cath lab to the community isnt just having its services, but increasing the speed with which such procedures can be done on someone suffering heart problems. Facility manager Belinda Manuel, who has worked in the industry for 22 years, put it simply. With heart problems, time is muscle, Manuel said. Pastore added, If someone is having a heart attack, the muscle starts dying right away. So you have to get to the hospital, get your diagnosis procedure and get it fixed, and if you can do that fast you can preserve more of the heart muscle and the outcome is better. If your mother or father was looking for a home in this area youd feel a lot safer knowing they could get good care quickly if they needed it. Pastore said the dead heart muscle becomes a scar, which can result in additional rhythm problems later. Much like the rest of the hospital, the lab stays away from the traditional sterile-looking white walls with bright lights in favor of more calming surroundings. Patients getting a cath will see murals of beach scenes while also listening to soothing music. Our first priority is always to give the highest quality of care that we can, Pastore said. If you can do that youre providing real service. I think our second priority is to achieve the highest level of patient satisfaction we possibly could and to really optimize our patients experience with the healthcare industry. The facility currently has two cath labs that can perform the same procedures, but was designed in a way to easily add another two as the demand rises. A team is available 24/7, so treatment can always be administered. I dont think the objective the first few years was to blow the top off the capacity of procedures done, Pastore said. I think the primary objective was if were going to open a cath lab, to do it the right way from the beginning by offering the best care and patient satisfaction. If we can do that, then the sky is the limit in the future. For more information on the cath lab, call (813) 443-2046.Shot in the arm to heart health

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 29,2012 13 countys athletics department have been involved with the tournament since its inception. IMG would have to start from scratch, Keaton said. Keaton said he has been in talks with NDP Lacrosse,which operates the tournament,trying to keep the national event in Wesley Chapel. I think theyre very receptive,Keaton said. Frank Britton,secretary of the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association,is concerned about local lacrosse players having a chance to be seen by college coaches if the tournament relocates.Hes also worried about the negative impact on the local economy. Members of the business community are calling on the county to do what it can to keep the tournament in Wesley Chapel. If theyre going to spend hotel tax dollars keeping something here,spend it keeping this,said Todd Patrick,sales director for Hampton Inn & Suites Tampa-Wesley Chapel,2740 Cypress Ridge Blvd. Patrick said losing the Tournament of Champions could lead to losing the Derek Pieper Memorial Cup,a significant loss because the Derek Pieper contest is the only Florida qualifying tournament for the Tournament of Champions,and also brings in significant business. Patrick believes IMG will be able toLACROSSE,from page 1make a case for the Derek Pieper tournament,if it is able to secure the Tournament of Champions. Britton said he thinks it is more likely that the Derek Pieper tournament would continue in Wesley Chapel,but that IMG would host an additional qualifying tournament,which would reduce the number of teams participating at Derek Pieper. Patrick said his hotel does about 300 room nights for the Derek Pieper tournament and about 400 room nights for the Tournament of Champions.The impact goes beyond losing those bookings,though, Patrick said.Losing that business would lower the room rate the hotel could charge, he said,noting the effect of supply and demand. Patrick said his hotel wants to do what it can to help keep the tournament,including offering rebates to hotel guests in town for the tournament. The county needs to work out an enticing package,Patrick said.These guys (tournament organizers) dont really care where it is,theyre just looking for the better deal. Hotels arent the only losers if the tournaments relocate,Patrick added.Many local businesses will suffer as well,he said.Team parents often ask him:Wheres the Publix? Where is the Walgreens? We sent one entire team to Cobb Theatre.We sent many teams to Hungry Harrys (Family) Bar-B-Que and many teams Aplayer from FCAElite receives congratulations from Pasco County commissioners Jack Mariano and Henry Wilson, upon the teams championship win.to Texas Roadhouse. Almost every team made a team trip to Wiregrass mall,Patrick said.Greg Lenners,general manager for The Shops at Wiregrass,said theres no doubt the regional mall at SR 56 and Bruce B. Downs Boulevard picks up business from people attending the annual tournaments. Mall retailers pick up foot traffic but Lenners suspects mall restaurants would suffer the biggest blow if the tournaments move.If there is something TDC (Tourist Development Council) can do,I would strongly encourage it,Lenners said. Jeff Miller,chairman of the Wesley Chapel Economic Development Committee, has written county commissioners urging them to do what they can.The impact goes beyond the spending by visitors,Miller said. It also affects the communitys ability to reach a national audience,leading to longterm consequences,Miller said. Pasco County Commissioner Pat Mulieri agreed with business leaders that the county must address the issue. We need to match the money,Mulieri said,via email.It is being worked on. our success of reducing our complication level to an incredible low that I dont think has been seen in many labs,Pastore said.He then added,The chance of bleeding after is much less and the patients comfort level is better. The lab also has ways to correct a heart that isnt beating properly,known as electrophysiology Thats done where we can put in pacemakers,defibrillators and actually fix rhythm problems with radiofrequency ablation,Pastore said. Other diagnostic procedures can be performed at the lab to help decide what kind of intervention should be done,or if medication can relieve the heart problem.HEART,from page 1 Basically the only thing the lab cant do in terms of cardiac treatment is open-heart surgery or transplants.Pastore said the main benefit of the cath lab to the community isnt just having its services,but increasing the speed with which such procedures can be done on someone suffering heart problems. Facility manager Belinda Manuel,who has worked in the industry for 22 years,put it simply.With heart problems,time is muscle, Manuel said. Pastore added,If someone is having a heart attack,the muscle starts dying right away.So you have to get to the hospital,get your diagnosis procedure and get it fixed, and if you can do that fast you can preserve more of the heart muscle and the outcome is better. If your mother or father was looking for a home in this area youd feel a lot safer knowing they could get good care quickly if they needed it. Pastore said the dead heart muscle becomes a scar,which can result in additional rhythm problems later. Much like the rest of the hospital,the lab stays away from the traditional sterile-looking white walls with bright lights in favor of more calming surroundings.Patients getting a cath will see murals of beach scenes while also listening to soothing music. Our first priority is always to give the highest quality of care that we can,Pastore said.If you can do that youre providing real service.I think our second priority is to achieve the highest level of patient satisfaction we possibly could and to really optimize our patientsexperience with the healthcare industry. The facility currently has two cath labs that can perform the same procedures,but was designed in a way to easily add another two as the demand rises.A team is available 24/7,so treatment can always be administered.I dont think the objective the first few years was to blow the top off the capacity of procedures done,Pastore said.I think the primary objective was if were going to open a cath lab,to do it the right way from the beginning by offering the best care and patient satisfaction.If we can do that,then the sky is the limit in the future.For more information on the cath lab, call (813) 443-2046. start your team at marchforbabies.org 2012 March of Dimes Foundation The Laker / Lutz News813.909.2800 Join us on March 4th in welcoming our new Sr. Pastor,Gary Edwards and his wife Deana.Pastor Edwards and Deana are from Clermont Florida.

Voted Floridas No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity SportsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comTodd Donohoe was named Freedom Highs sixth football coach since the 2006 season on Feb.20,according to Patriots athletic director Elijah Thomas. His organizational skills and his competitive nature were some of the things that separated him from the other 20 candidates,Thomas said.Were happy to have Todd.We want him to be here for 20 years leading the football program.He wants to do right by the kids.It is the third coaching stint for Donohoe, who was already on Freedoms staff as a physical education teacher.He resigned from Strawberry Crest before the 2011 season amid pressure from school administration. The year away gave him time to recharge.Coaching is in my blood,Donohoe said. When I left Crest I knew I wanted to coach again somehow and somewhere.Donohoe coached at his alma mater Dunedin from 1996-98,compiling a 7-23 record.He started the program at Strawberry Crest,going 6-10 in varsity contests from 2009-10.Freedoms new leader also spent four years as an Armwood assistant.Donohoe replaces Tchecoy Blount,who coached the Patriots to a 6-14 record during his two seasons at the helm.I applied for a couple places,but when the job opened at Freedom it was the perfect opportunity,Donohoe said. Im really excited to take this program into the future and make it into the winning program it should be.This is where I want to be.Freedom has made the playoffs only twice since the school opened in 2002. Both postseason appearances were as a district runner-up in 2006 and 2009,and both times the Patriots were knocked out in the first round. Thomas said part of the reason the football program has failed to win consistently is the revolving door of coaches and predicts Donohoe is the person to put a stop to that constant changing of the guard. I absolutely believe hes the right person for the job,Thomas said.He wants to be here for the long haul and we want him to be here for a long time too.Were all looking forward to the spring and fall football seasons. Donohoe is also the Patriotsboys track and field coach.He said he will remain that programs leader for at least this season and possibly into the future. Weve got a lot of good runners and field athletes coming back and I think well be able to compete at a high level this year, Donohoe said.I didnt want their season to be hurt by me becoming the football coach.Todd Donohoe to lead Freedom football Todd Donohoe By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comAnyone who has seen a Gaither High sports event has likely seen Paul Barrett. The 6-foot-2,175-pound senior has been on the Cowboysfootball team the last two years and a member of the soccer and track and field squads since coming to Gaither from Alonso as a sophomore. Barrett played wide receiver in football, making five catches for 92 yards and two touchdowns to help the squad go 9-4 and reach the regional finals for the second time in the programs 27-year history. During the winter in soccer he posted six goals and seven assists while playing midfield and forward.The Cowboys won a district and regional championship to make back-to-back state final four appearances this year with Barretts help. Now as the track season begins,Barrett is trying to achieve more than he did as a junior when he won three district championships and reached the Class 4A state meet in the 300-hurdles. Barrett said the one challenge he has when the seasons shift is transitioning from sport to sport. It takes time when one season ends and the other starts because theyre all so different,Barrett said.Moving from football to soccer was hard,and then for track its nothing like soccer.The first week of track I was so tired. The deep playoff runs for the football and soccer teams meant Barrett joined his next squad weeks after practice began. Hes still getting into the track season, said Gaither second-year boys track and field coach Jeff Ditman.Its not a bad thing because its great that he does so many sports.The determination to succeed is there with him.Hes committed and hes got nothing but potential. He definitely brings the work ethic, Ditman continued.Hes an interesting kid, and I mean that in a great way.Hes a funloving kid and he brings a certain energy to the track thats necessary.It can be a grind. Youre grinding away in practice because youre not practicing youre training.He brings a fun-loving energy that really picks people up. Eric Sims,the Cowboysboys soccer coach,said Barrett filled holes created this year after losing 10 seniors from the previous squad. Hes really big and fast,Sims said.Hes really hard to stop once he gets going on a run.We needed his offense and hes a big reason we got back to the final four. Ditman is also an assistant on the football team,giving him the chance to see Barrett in very dissimilar activities. Hes always prepared,and the other thing is hes a kid who takes AP courses and works really hard in the classroom,Ditman said.Its hard to do everything he does and excel in three sports,especially nowadays.It just seems like kids specialize.To actually compete in three seasons at a high level is really rare. Barrett said playing three sports gives him insights those who specialize in one dont have. I learned a lot from football that I could use in soccer, Barrett said.Football is such a team sport because you have to use all the players to win.I tried to do that in soccer and use all our players.Thats what our team was in soccer because we used each other. Barrett was born in Montego Bay,Jamaica and came to Hillsborough County in the sixth grade.He said soccer is the sport he has played the longest going back to his earliest memories.I did track to stay in shape after the soccer season,Barrett said.During the summer I tried to do club soccer,but it was too expensive so I started playing football.Barrett is unfazed by his busy schedule between school and athletics. The time management really isnt that hard,Barrett said.A lot of kids exaggerate that part.I guess its just the mentality I grew up with. Barretts favorite sports memory at Gaither was playing at the University of Tampa in the 5A state semifinals as a junior. Second is winning the high jump district title a year ago,besting Alonsos Brandon Holloway who is considered one of the top running back prospects nationally.I mean I beat Brandon Holloway,and how many people can say that,Barrett said with a smile.I can say I beat Brandon Holloway.Hes going to be famous some day.Barrett has no set plans for college,but would like to play soccer or compete in track on scholarship or as a walk-on. Wherever he goes he wont forget the hours he has spent on the Cowboysgridiron, pitch and track. Ive really loved my three years here, Barrett said.Ill always remember being here.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 29,2012 15 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Academy at the Lakes girls basketball team fell in the Class 2A final four 67-46 to the eventual state champions Tallahassee FAMU on Feb.21 at The Lakeland Center. The loss ends the Wildcats(23-6) season two wins shy of the ultimate goal,but the trip to the state semifinals illustrates how far the program has come from one that went 0-15 two years ago. They competed really well and Im proud of them,said 20-year coach Karim Nohra.Nohra came to the academy two years ago after two seasons at Wesley Chapel High. During his decades of coaching hes been at final fours many times,but always as a spectator.Hed taken eight teams to regional finals before breaking through this year.I thanked them over and over for bringing me after 20 years to the final four and to this arena,Nohra said.Now I got to be on the floor,which was a great experience for me,but also for them. It was especially great for junior guard Andrea Mauger,who played for Nohra at Wesley Chapel as a freshman and the last two years at the academy. Some of my best friends played for Jefferson when they went to the final four my freshman year,and it was just,wow,you know Id love to be here someday,said Mauger,who had 18 points and six rebounds.Thats been my dream and my goal since that moment I came here.To be not sitting in the stands and to walk in here,you know thats a privilege.Theres only four teams in Class 2A that get to do that.You have to remember that in the back of our mind that were very privileged and very blessed to be in this position were in. Nohras gameplan was to slow the game down with a lot of passes in a half-court offense. I wanted a little more controlled environment;a little more controlled atmosphere for our team,Nohra said.Early on we werent looking to score as much.I told them if they have an open jumper yes, but lets move the ball around a little,get a feel for the floor,get a feel for what theyre trying to do against us.Its a big arena.You dont always get to shoot in this type of environment.It generally throws shooters off. The Wildcatsshots were off early,hitting one of 10 from the floor in the first quarter. FAMU (28-4) led 15-4 after the first 8 minutes and 34-21 at halftime,but academy kept it close enough for a late run. The Wildcats cut FAMUs lead to nine with just less than 6 minutes remaining thanks to a 17-2 run starting with 1:20 left in the third quarter.That was as close at it got as the Baby Rattlers scored 13 of the next 16 points. At single digits I thought we had a shot, Nohra said.Then they answered.Yes,we dug ourselves a little bit of a hole,but to our girlscredit they kept fighting.SPORTS Academys dream season ends in final four SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTSCHECK THIS OUTWildcats claim league titleThe Academy at the Lakes middle school boys basketball team won the Florida West Coast League district championship on the strength of an 11-5 record.The Wildcats went 8-0 against league opponents,which includes such teams as Carrollwood Day and Odessa Christian.

Size advantage goes to them,Nohra said.Everybody was telling me about their vaunted press this and vaunted press that. How many times did we turn the ball over to them? Hardly any. We just dont have an answer for that size.Simple as that. Academy gave up only six turnovers,but the Wildcatspress mustered three. To their credit they handle our press pretty decently,Nohra said.Most teams try to dribble through it.They passed through it and they have the strength to throw it long, which usually at the 2A level you dont see. Academy senior guard Amelia Oliver,a Sunlake transfer,had a team-high 21 points while adding seven rebounds. I know if I wasnt here I probably wouldnt have got this far from any other school,Oliver said.Im just blessed to be here with everybody. Also new to the team this season was Samantha Fernandez,who came from Oldsmar Christian.The senior point guard was forced to play harder than ever before for Nohra,but would make the move again if given the chance. We worked over and over on things until it became like second nature,said Fernandez,who had12 points and six rebounds.This experience has been amazing. I wouldnt take anything back.I love all these girls. Academy at the Lakes senior point guard Samantha Fernandez had 12 points and six rebounds in the state semifinals.

I was ready for this,said Wesley Chapel junior Leny Vega.I knew it was going to be a fun time with the team. Aaron Allen and his wife,Sue,organize the Angels games.Their son,Shane,is on the squad. Shane loves to play,Aaron said.Just like all the kids on the team he looks forward to coming out each Saturday.No matter if they can hit it 2 feet or 100 feet they look forward to batting and enjoy running the bases. The Angels are the only Dade City program in the division,so the Allens ask local groups like the Boys Scouts or Wildcats football to play. The program started with seven kids last year and has grown to 12.Current players come from Wesley Chapel,New Tampa, Zephyrhills and Dade City,but there are no set boundaries for those who want to join. Our hope is by the end of this year or next year to have two teams with the Dade City Challengers,Aaron said. One of the new recruits is Watergrass Ranch Elementary first-grader Dylan Williams,who played with the Angels for the first time on Feb.25.Dylans mother, Andressa,heard about the team at the Pasco County East Special Olympics games at Wesley Chapel High on Feb.16. We were ecstatic when I heard about it at the Special Olympics this year,said Andressa,of Zephyrhills.Dylan played in the regular Little League when he was 4 or 5,and he didnt like it as much,but I think this is going to be really good for him. Its the little things that matter the most to parents who have kids with disabilities.Having a field here each week is just an awesome opportunity. The star of the day was Donald Pitts, who also played last year.The Angelsfirst baseman hit a pair of inside-the-park home runs in the contest while also playing solidly in the field. Baseball is a very fun sport,said Pitts, who lives in Dade City and attends MooreMickens Education Center.I try to hit the ball so hard so I can hit a homer like the Major League. Pittsfavorite player is Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays,and he models his game after him. I try and hit like him because he hits homers and so do I,Pitts said. The Wildcats were out of their normal comfort zone on the baseball diamond.VegaChallenge accepted Wesley Chapel football coach Ben Alford, left, shakes hands with Angelsfirst baseman Donald Pitts during a game on Feb. 25.

The Wildcats (17-10) were playing at home against All SaintsAcademy (ASA) in the first regional semifinals game in program history.Toms nerves got worse as he saw his squads lead trimmed to six with only a few minutes to play.I was scared to death,Tom said.I was like Oh no.We cant lose this after being where we were,but theyre a good team,and Ill be honest,a lot of our games have been like this.We dont blow a lot of people out.But this academy squad has already made program history.The Wildcats had never made the playoffs before this year and their 69-61 win over ASA secured their debut in the Class 2A regional finals on Feb 25. Orlando Christian Prep got the better of the academy 78-27,but the trip to the doorstep of the final four is a learning experience for a team that will return all but one starter next year. The academy defeated ASA (10-6) thanks in large part to a 39-point effort from freshman guard Ethan Haslam,Toms son.The Wildcatsneeded Ethans career-high in scoring to stave off the late-surging Saints. Its never pretty here,never pretty,Tom said. The first half anyway was pretty for the academy. The Wildcats burst out to a 10-2 lead.ASA took a time out to try and slow the momentum,but the academy responded with an 8-2 run to mount an 18-4 lead with 2:54 left in opening period. The second quarter followed the trend, with the Wildcats building a commanding 39-18 lead. After three quarters,the game looked even more out of hand.It was the last 8 minutes that had everyone afterward saying how close the game was. A potent Wildcats offense suddenly went stagnant as the Saints started making shots from all over the floor. I thought wed worn them down,physically,Tom said.But they kept shooting,kept making shots and I give them a lot of credit. With less than 5 minutes remaining,ASA cut the lead to 11.Ethans ensuing and-one layup with 4:15 left were the first points for the academy in the fourth quarter. The comforting lead kind of led to a lack of energy and a lack of intensity,Ethan said.And then we just got in the wrong places at the wrong time and they converted on their plays and they hit some big shots. While the Saints drained contested buckets from beyond the arc,the Wildcats kept their lead by standing still at the freethrow line.The academy hit just enough from the charity strip to push the game out of reach. This team,over the course of the season,in close games we do a lot of things right down the stretch,Tom said.The Land OLakes boys basketball team could not win its first appearance ever in a regional semifinals contest,falling at Winter Haven 60-42. The Gators (22-7) got 16 points from Ernest McClendon,along with 12 from Mike Morrow and eight from Jackson Cannon. The Blue Devils took advantage of their size with 6-foot-6 point guard DeVon Walker, who dropped 22.SPORTS Haslam drops 39 as Wildcats hold off Saints Academy at the Lakes freshman guard Ethan Haslam scored against All Saintsin the regional semifinals. (Photos by Glenn Gefers of www.photosby3g.com) Wildcats senior guard Jarrett Harvey posted 15 points and four rebounds against All Saints.
