CAMPUS HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgThe 32nd annual Downtown Festival and Art Show will morph downtown Gainesville into a melting pot of art, entertainment music and food Saturday and Sunday. Ranking among the top festivals in the nation, the downtown art show allows visitors to meet exhibiting artists, enjoy live music and sample international cuisine, according to a news release. The City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs department presents the festival that draws about 100,000 people every year and includes about 250 artists, according to a news release. Nasthia Villavicencio, a 19-yearold UF economics junior, said when she attended the festival in the past, it was crowded but worth the trip because there were interesting exhibits. One that I really liked was a guy ure, she said. It was fun you see families and people walking their dogs and enjoying the art. Adam Goldstein, a 22-year-old UF business administration senior, said the most interesting part is that artists come from across the nation. Its people from all over the U.S., not just Florida or close by, he said. Its also really cool that everyone comes to little old Gainesville just for that.Festival to draw artists, music, cuisine downtownSEE FESTIVAL, PAGE 5 ITS URL IS REPORTRAPEGAINESVILLE.ORG. KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writerkvarn@alligator.orgVictims of sexual assault have another avenue to notify authorities: a website launched Thursday by local agencies. The website was developed by Gainesville Police and the Alachua County Victim Services and Rape Crisis Center. It features various buttons users can click on to report an incident anonymously or to get information about victim resources. The goal is to give victims an additional outlet to report their story one that may be more comfortable than speaking directly to authorities, said Laura Kalt, a victim advocate counselor. Kalt was inspired to make the website after noticing Minnesota law enforcement agencies used a similar model. She ran the idea by GPD Captain Lynne Benck, commander of the criminal investigations bureau. Together, they wrote the websites content while the IT department developed the website. We dont know what the results will be, Kalt said, but at the very least, it will link people to the right services that will at least be available to support them. The website presents 12 options for users to click on, including Make an anonymous report and Where can I go for help?

The mysterious hashtag has piqued the interest of the followers of UF social media accounts since it appeared in posts beginning Tuesday. Ambiguous posts on Instagram and Twitaccounts, left followers comments and questions unanswered, instead replying to commenters by hinting at a reveal to be announced today. But UF spokesman Chris Moran said no big announcement was planned for today, just the launch of a social media campaign to spark conversation about UFs future plans to become a top 10 public research university. We recognize that the plan needs to start with support on campus, he said, a campus culture that strives for improvements and excellence. We want to hear from people on how to get there. However, UFs preeminence plan hinges on the Board of Governors approval to be decided at a meeting in Miami next week. The UF Rising Path to was spotty throughout Thursday. When available, a posted description of a plan to raise UFs status included details of a billiondollar campaign and a hiring spree of acclaimed scholars and researchers.

4, ALLIGATOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2013William A. England / Alligator StaffDrop the BassUFs symphony orchestra performs at the University Auditorium on Thursday evening. The show was conducted by Raymond Chobaz. The orchestras next concert is Dec. 3 in the Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. ITS IN THE COFRIN NATURE PARK. HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgRaela Villanueva wiped the tears from her face and grabbed the microphone in front of her. She began singing a song she wrote for her brother, Junior, a UF student who committed suicide about 16 years ago. On Thursday, about 50 attendees watched as the Survivors of Suicide Memory Garden was dedicated to family members and friends whose loved ones killed themselves. Now, those affected by suicide in Alachua on the memories of loved ones theyve lost in the Cofrin Nature Park, located at 4810 NW Eighth Ave. Commissioner Randy Wells spoke at the dedication. He said the garden represents love and can help survivors understand the doubt and confusion surrounding a suicide. Someone affected by suicide knows it is not an end but a beginning of lifelong questions, he said. I hope and believe something special will come from this space. It represents empowerment over futility. John Adams, one of the landscape architects for the project, said when he and his team were designing the layout for the garden, he wanted each part to represent how people deal with losing someone to suicide. There are four functions of the garden, he said. Its a place for someone to go to honor their loved one, a place for healing and forgiveAdams said the gardens symbolic design includes a gathering space, a labyrinth and a bench by a creek, all of which symbolize the stages of grief survivors face. A life-size basalt sculpture with six columns that stands in the garden, designed by Greg Johnson, was created to symbolize how each individual affected by a suicide can belong to a greater group, Johnson said. Each is individuated but they relate to each other as people relate to their loss, he said. The idea for the garden was hatched almost a decade ago when the park opened, said Gladys Cofrin, former owner of the park property; however, the construction on the garden began about two years ago. The Friends of the Crisis Center, in conjunction with the City of Gainesville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department, and the Alachua County Crisis Center partnered to create the garden. Wendy Brant, the president of Friends of the Crisis Center, said the garden was truly built by angels both seen and unseen, and will now be a special place for survivors.Memorial garden in park dedicated to survivors of suicide KATHRYN VARNAlligator Staff Writerkvarn@alligator.orgA reported revenge plot on the car of an ex-boyfriends lover landed one local woman in jail Thursday morning.

At about 2:30 a.m., Ebanks broke into Franki Renee Bullocks car in the parking lot of Gator Place Condominiums, at 4000 SW 23rd St., according to the report. Ebanks opened a container of oil in the car and poured it on the seats and side panels, then onto the windows outside of the car.

Laura Caicedo, the marketing and public relations assistant at the museum, said there is something for everyone at the free, astronomythemed event. From 6 to 10 p.m. students can speak with experts from different astronomy programs to learn about the universe, said Amanda Harvey, an educator at the center for science learning at the museum. Its a really good way to sort of get an introduction to astronomy and space science, she said. At 7 p.m. visitors will be able listen to UFs astronomy departments chair, professor Rafael Guzmn, speak about the Gran Telescopio CANARIAS, the largest optical telescope on Earth, she said. Vicky Sarajedini, an associate professor in the astronomy department at UF, said her department has developed a new interactive activity it calls create-a-crater. People will drop see what kind of craters they can make. Over the years, the portable planetarium that Sarajedini helps run has become a staple. The show will start off displaying the night sky over Gainesville, then demonstrate sky movements. The event will also have 3-D AstroWall presentations, which start out at the sun and then go through the galaxy, and viewers will be able to see how stars are positioned, Sarajedini said. Harvey said everyone also gets a passport to the universe, a map of everything at the event and a place for patrons to collect stamps. A completed passport will earn visitors a prize.Star light, star bright at the Florida Museum tonight THE MEME WITH THE MOST LIKES WILL GET EXTRA CREDIT. JENSEN WERLEYAlligator Staff Writerjwerley@alligator.orgUF students dont always make memes, but when they do, theyre in Lindsey Woodworths economics class. Public economics instructor and Ph.D. candidate Woodworth created a Facebook group for her students to post memes about public economics, which are paired with an assigned paper. Woodworth said she got the idea of creating memes for homework from another professor at a conference. Its a good way to think about it in a fun way, she said. She added that by sharing economics-based memes, it ingrains the concepts they are learning in the students minds. She said she wanted to create homework that gets students to be more creative. Its a more fun type of homework assignment, she said. We usually do a lot of math. Part of the assignment is to post the memes to the group, where students will vote for their favorite one by liking it. Woodworth said the one with the most likes will get extra credit. Jason Wasserman, a 20-year-old economics junior in Woodworths class, said he enjoyed the assignment. signed it was I thought it would be very entertaining, he said.

LOCAL CHRIS ALCANTARAAlligator Staff Writercalcantara@alligator.orgA 42-year-old woman died Wednesday morning after strong winds caused a 100-foot tree to fall onto a mobile home where she and her family lived in southwest Gainesville. ceived a call at about 2:20 a.m. from Michael Braton, who said a large tree fell through his house at 6904 SW 33rd Place, and that he and his girlfriend, Dawn Ewing, were pinned to their bed and trapped in the bedroom. Deputies, Alachua County Fire Rescue ofpany Langston Tree responded. They used air bags and braces to lift the approximately 10-ton tree about 14 inches off of the couple, them off the bed. Braton, 40, received several injuries, including broken bones, said ASO spokesman Art Forgey. Ewing, however, died from being crushed by the tree. Authorities also rescued three children, ages 5, 9 and 12, who were on the opposite side of the house when the tree fell, Forgey said. They werent injured. Paramedics took Braton to UF Health Shands Hospital, where doctors took him into surgery. He remained hospitalized Thursday. Wes Langston, who owns Langston Tree, said Wednesdays incident was an unusual call for him and his crew. I have never taken trees off of people, Langston said. Thats something I hope to never have to do again. the tree to topple onto the house. Forgey said out the day about fallen trees around the city. None of the calls resulted in injuries. At Braton and Ewings house Thursday, the tree remained lodged on top of the couples and wood. Clothes, debris and furniture sat untouched outside the house. A notice taped on the front door from Alachua County Animal Services stated two cats and a pit bull mix had been removed from the property. Gussie Clayton, who lives near the house with her 68-year-old husband, Louis, said she woke up Wednesday morning to what she thought was thunder. She checked outside but falling on her neighbors house until later. The 73-year-old said shes known Braton, Ewing and their children since they recently moved into the house down the road. They seem to be really nice people, she said.

Authorities can also develop clearer statistics about rape in Gainesville, especially because many incidents are historically believed to go unreported. We actually hope to get a better picture of what our victim demographics look like and what our suspect demographics look like, she said. We can potentially at least see areas of town where we should be concentrating efforts. As with most anonymous reporting systems, there is a thats trivial compared to all the good that it will do. Already, Benck said, a victims advocate asked her when the website would launch because a victim expressed interest in using it. Benck and Kalt said they hope many more victims will see the website as an outlet and take advantage of the resources. If they can get it out and start realizing they can trust people with their story, Benck said, the chances that theyre going to heal and live a productive life will greatly increase.

Darts & LaurelsOur hearts continue to go out to the people of the Philippines whove dealt with loss, injury, hunger and sorrow as a result of Typhoon Haiyan. In this tragic time, many countries and organizations have pooled their resources to donate money, food, water, medical supplies and volunteer personnel to help the people of the Philippines start to recover. This week, were giving a LAUREL to anyone who helped out, whether they packed up and traveled to the Philippines to help out in person or donated to the Red Cross. So, the website is still hella broken. If you havent left your blanket cave this week, you may have missed the fact that politicians, insurance companies and private citizens are freaking out. A seemingly endless stream the get-go: the website failed internal tests, President Barack Obama misled citizens by telling them they could keep their insurance if they liked, the task of building the website was outsourced to the U.S. subsidiary of a Canadian IT company and the federal government basically just sucks at technology systems. Hoo boy. A DART to the president this week for poor planning. Another government DART this week to the Food and Drug Administration, which apparently hates doughnuts, aka all thats good and beautiful in the world. Last week, the FDA proposed a ban on trans fat, in particular, hydrogenated oil. oils, which are used to increase the shelf life of most processed foods, are bad for you. No one is under any illusions about that fact, and many products boast No Trans Fats labels. However, a lot of things are bad for you smoking cigarettes, drinking soda, wearing stiletto shoes too long and consuming too much alcohol. Its not the governments job to regulate behavior, as libertarians like to point out. And they have a point. The FDA should instead promote transparency among food companies that use hydrogenated oils in their products rather than banning them altogether.

Todays question: Do local police departments correctly handle rape cases? Sheriff imposes Draconian punishmentsAmericas most controversial law enforcer will soon prove himself worthy of his title. In his latest attempt to smear Arizonas reputation, Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, has stated he intends to punish prisoners who deface the anthem will be played as part of Arpaios ongoing publicity campaign. The sheriffs futile attempts at patriotism arent the most disturbing aspect of this campaign, however. be subject to a strict diet of bread and water. The sheriff went on to boast that 10 people are already being denied anything but bread and water. His recent ideas for punishment are nothing new. He made his obsession with food public when he declared inmates would now have to pay for their meals earlier this year. However, Arpaios tendencies are by no means limited to dietary restrictions, as he has been the subject of a number of scandals. Known for making prisoners in his jurisdiction wear pink underwear, Arpaio has repeatedly clashed with the government over highly politicized issues. For instance, he launched an investigation of the president. He questioned whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. computer-generated forgery. Such statements have become synonymous with As a bureaucrat, the sheriff has an obligation to be impartial to politics. Arpaio has instead embraced his partisan instincts. Hes also pursued a political agenda. Manifesting in the most hideous form, Arpaios most infamous campaign has been to consistently target Hispanic people. A judge ruled earlier this year that Arpaios self-appointed According to ABC News, the Arizona sheriffs methods permitted his deputies to pull over and search the vehicles of anyone they thought was an illegal immigrant. Luckily, his powers to implement immigration laws were suspended by the government. Yet the pink-underwear-loving 81-year-old has continued to get re-elected. The only difference this time is the sheriffs re-election means someone will only be able to eat bread and water every day. Being incarcerated shouldnt mean being starved, especially in the United States, regardless of what Similarly, being elected as the sheriff of a certain county doesnt grant one the right to breach the neutrality the bureaucracy requires. The agenda used by the sheriff to humiliate, harass and even starve people is nothing more than unAmerican. If government has any sense, it will provoke legal action against Arpaio and challenge the legality of depriving people of certain foods in a prison environment.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2013 ALLIGATOR, 7Students should know the facts about education reformChances are if youre reading this, you have student loan debt. You may have a federal subsidized or unsubsidized loan, a loan through your school, or your parents may have even taken out a Direct PLUS Loan to help cover the costs of your education. I have a twin sister attending Florida State University, so I happen to have all of the above. I have federal subsidized and unsubsidized loans, and my parents have taken out loans in order to pay for housing and books. I was proud to stand behind President Barack Obama at the White House when he spoke about college affordability on May 31. Obama is committed to making college affordable for every student who wants to receive higher education. In August, the president rolled out even more ideas for higher-education reform that will help millions of students across the United States. The following are the three main points of reform: 1. Implement a new rating system for colleges and universities. The rating system will be based on the institutions ability to give students a strong education at a fair price. 2. Provide incentives to schools experimenting to save students money with online courses and joint programs with high schools. 3. Raise awareness of the Pay As You Earn program, which caps loan payments at 10 percent of a students post-college monthly income. This program is already helping about 2.5 million students across the country. As Obama said, Higher education shouldnt be a luxury, or a roll of the dice; its an economic imperative that every family in America should be able to afford. Rachel McGovern UF student, national council chair for College Democrats of AmericaLetter to the Editor If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. How many times did we hear that? In the Rose Garden, during the State of the Union address, in the pressroom, on the campaign trail and in his weekly Internet addresses, President Barack Obama told us this. And we believed him. So much so that he was re-elected in a decisive victory over Gov. Romney in 2012. This phrase embodied the Affordable Care Act at least until last week. Americans are being told they will not be able to keep their health plan. Millions of people are opening letters saying Obamacare has made their policies illegal. My own father was told by his employer that his company will have to look for a new plan because theirs was deemed subpar. This government didnt foresee. But it isnt. And it wasnt. Last week, several media outlets began reporting that, as Obama touted his famous phrase, the White House was estimating about seven million people would lose insurance. They knew. We were told otherwise. In fact, Marc A. Thiessen of The Washington Post wrote Obamas aides advised him to tweak his tagline. It was misleading. They knew, from day one, Americans would lose insurance. Yet the line stayed. As expected, the Obama administration has responded to the issue. It says any plan enacted before the law was passed would be left untouched for another year. What the administration failed to mention was if the plan changed in any way Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and of $5 constituted a change the plan was no longer protected. How could they expect a plan to stay completely unchanged over three years? So why mislead the American people? Easy. If they actually knew they would lose their insurance, their opinion of the plan would sour. They would use their vote to change things. But that didnt happen, and they didnt know. And here we are today. Prices are going up for plans. Families are losing their doctors. This is what I, and the American people, must live through. People cant keep their plans, and the White House knew from the beginning. Period. William Stahovec is a UF engineering freshman.Obamacare tagline misleadsGuest column On Tuesday I attended an event hosted by the Jewish National Fund titled Making the World a Better Place, which was supposed to highlight the positive impact Israel is supposedly making on the global community. The JNF (also known as the KKL) owns 13 percent of the land in Israel. Since the 1950s, the JNF has operated as a part of Israel and controls about 93 percent of the land. The JNFs constitution explicitly states that JNF-KKL land and property is not to be rented, leased, sold or worked by non-Jews. So you could see why I was surprised that such a discriminatory organization was allowed to come on campus by UF Intercultural Engagement. The event sought to whitewash the opestinians and other ethnic groups by highlighting Israels green efforts and medical technologies. You want to know how Israel can truly make the world a better place? 1. Stop its settler colonial project that has ethnically cleansed Palestinians from their land since 1948. to more than 4.25 million Palestinians who were displaced from their land and reside in refugee camps in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan. 3. Stop the Prawer Plan, which seeks to displace more than 40,000 bedouins. 4. Stop placing Palestinian children as young as 9 in military detention centers. 5. End its discrimination against Palestinians with Israeli citizenship and against African migrants. 6. Stop playing such a huge role in the military industrial complex, which greatly harms the global South. 7. Stop threatening sovereign nations with the threat of military strikes, and 8. Realize that an ethnocracy cant call itself the only democracy in the Middle East when it only represents one group of people.

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 2013 WWW.ALLIGATORSPORTS.ORG Mark Parrish and Florida cross country begin the NCAA Championships today. Read the story on page 16. Gators captains Will Muschamp announced via Twitter that Cody Riggs, Jon Halapio, Vernon Hargreaves III and Jarrad Davis will serve as captains against South Carolina. ADAM LICHTENSTEINAlligator Staff Writer@alichtenstein24Jarrad Davis was not the highest-recruited linebacker the Gators signed in their 2013 recruiting class, but he has made the biggest immediate impact. Due to solid play on special teams and injuries to the Florida (4-5, 3-4 Southeastern Conference) linebacker corps, the Kingsland, Ga., native will against No. 10 South Carolina on Saturday at 7 p.m. in Columbia, S.C. We thought he was a really good player bringing him in, defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said. The more youre around, the more you see him, were pleasantly surprised. He is a guy who is very mature. Davis made an impact on the staff with his play on special teams, but he received little playing time on defense. His statistics hide his true impact the freshman has recorded only seven tackles, including one for a loss, in nine games played. But Davis maturity has impressed his coaches the most enough for Durkin to compare him to another true freshman who has made a large impact on the Florida defense. Weve (talked) about [freshman defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III] a bunch as a freshman who handles things well and doesnt act like a freshman, Durkin said. I think Jarrad goes into that same category. He just handles himself in a way that, if you didnt know, you wouldnt think hes a freshman. Thats in the meeting He prepares really hard, practices well. The Gators need Davis practice ability to translate to the cocks (7-2, 5-2 SEC) on Saturday. UF lost starting Mike linebacker Antonio Morrison to a torn meniscus suffered during Floridas 34-17 loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday. Despite struggling at times during the season, Morrison UFs leading tackler started the past seven games and played a key role leading the Gators defense. He gets guys lined up. He communicates to everyone on the defensive side of the ball, Durkin said. Theres a lot of things you lose with him. Redshirt junior Michael Taylor, who previously started at Will linebacker, will take over Morrisons role; Davis will replace Taylor and serve as one of four captains before the game starts. Weve also reached a point right now where weve been there, Durkin said. You know, its part of whats going on No one really talks about it or feels bad about it. In terms of us for a team, we just got to go move on. The Gators hope Davis can help their ailing defense. After starting the season as one of the best run defenses in the nation, Florida has allowed Kristi Camara /Alligator StaffJarrad Davis comes to a stop following a punt during Floridas Sitting at 4-5 with a likely loss ahead of them in Columbia, S.C., the Gators could easily be batting .400 by weekends end. With that possibility in mind, as well as our nations recent observance of Veterans Day thank you for your service we here at the alligatorSports Brand Picks Column would like to talk about Ted Williams Teddy Ballgame the last man to bat better than .400 in Major League Baseball. While Williams .400 actually .406 is much better than a .400 would be on Floridas end, we think this Hall of Famer had several bits of wisdom that would do the Gators good. Will these quotes be out of context? How could you even ask such a question? Of course these quotes will be taken out of context. So, sit back, relax and get ready for some Ted Talk! (See what we did there?) 1. If you dont think too good, dont think too much. Put simply, this tells dumb people to avoid thinking too hard. But theres a deeper meaning here. Read what defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin said on Wednesday: You cant let circumwhat youre doing. Below .500 and reeling, its probably hard for UF to think good and push away the bad thoughts. So, quit the thinking, go out there and play your game! 2. If there was ever a man born to be a hitter, it was me. Are the Gators simply going to lie down and let good old Ted be the only hitter out there? Somebody tell us right now that Dante Fowler Jr. isnt a hitter. Somebody tell us that Loucheiz Purifoy isnt a hitter. Hell, Jarrad Davis is a guy who sticks his face in the fan, according to Will Muschamp. We damn well know hes a hitter. Go out there and hit somebody legally!Picks SITE: Williams-Brice Stadium (cap. 80,250) KICKOFF: 7 p.m., Saturday TV/RADIO: ESPN2 / 850 AM SEE PICKS, PA GE 15 MENS BASKETBALL JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Writer @jczuprynThe suspension of Scottie Wilbekin to start the season pushed Kasey Hill into the starting point guard role for the Gators. Through two games, the freshman has had his share of struggles. Hill is tied for 150th in the nation with four assists per game, and his 13 missed shots are the most on the Gators. However, he will have an opportunity to turn things around for No. 11 Florida against Arkansas-Little Rock on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. in the OConnell Center. his collegiate career ended with a 59-53 loss to No. 20 Wisconsin. Shooting 2 of 11 and fouling out with 3:25 in the game did not help his cause. Coach Billy Donovan said Hills poor shooting performance not only contributed to him fouling out during a critical point of the game, but it also hurt his defensive play as well. I thought his lack of putting the ball in the basket really impacted him on the defenall, Donovan said. He was visibly disappointed, upset, bothered. That led to some of his foul trouble. He has to be able to move to the next play. made his debut in 2007, the Gators started a freshman at point guard to open the season. averaged 18 points per game on 43 percent shooting. He also averaged 5.5 assists. He just handles himself in a way that, if you didnt know, you wouldnt think hes a freshman.

Hill is averaging 9.5 points per game on 35 percent shooting, while averaging four assists. Before the season started, player. But with 20 shots so far, he has as many attempts as Patric Young, Will Yeguete and Jacob Kurtz combined. There has not been a Florida team with fewer assists in the than this years squad since at least 1998. But Donovan, who was a point guard during his playing career at Providence, said he understands how difa team as a freshman. With no other true point guard on the active roster, Hill is forced to carry the load in the backcourt. Obviously Ive put him Donovan said. The fact that hes a freshman and we dont have another point guard right now on our team, and hes got to absorb a lot of minutes. Hes kind of having to learn on the job, and Im not so sure thats the fairest thing to him. So theres going to be some growing pains and some bumps and bruises on With the season opener and way, Donovan said he expects Hill to take what he learned and immediately start growing into a better player. Floridas next three games are at home against mid-major schools. This is a good experience the way hes being guarded, what people are doing to him and how he needs to attack running backs such as LSUs Jeremy Hill, Missouris Henry Josey and Georgias Todd Gurley to shred its run defense. During UFs four-game losing streak, opponents ran for an average of 165.5 yards per game. I felt really good going into the season with Certainly, weve not had the results we wanted to consistently through the year, and thats Florida has its work cut out for it again against South Carolina. Gamecocks running back Mike Davis is the SECs leading rusher and has already scored 10 rushing touchdowns. He is having an outstanding year, certainly Muschamp said. Added Durkin: Hes a powerful guy, breaks tackles. Hes got some top-end speed. Hes hit some long ones on teams where maybe because of his size or whatever he doesnt look like a speed guy, but hes got speed. 3. They invented the All-Star Game for Willie Mays. challenge of all.

JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126After mixed results at the Southeastern Conference Championships on Nov. 1, Floridas cross country teams are hoping to boast a strong showing today starting at 11 a.m. at the NCAA South Regional Championships in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Coach Paul Spangler said the team has limited the volume of its workouts this week after intensifying practice following the SEC Championships. Right now, its just a matter of ness that we have, keeping the athletes healthy and preparing them to run faster, he said. The men have momentum going into regionals after their secpionships. They do not want to settle for second-best again. Overall, the team was satisto give, senior Mark Parrish said. but at the same time, were looking forward to having some improvements at Regions. The men will be running a 10K they compete on the Harry Pritchett Running Course today. Even though this will be the experience the extended course length as Gators, Spangler said he does not believe the extra distance will faze the team. The training we do is designed for them to run fast, whether its an 8K or 10K, he said. The only thing you worry about is them mentally going into the race, and them at all. While the men have had consistency from their top four runners Parrish, juniors Jimmy Clark and Eddie Garcia and freshman Carlos Miranda they received an added boost when junior JL Hines returned to the lineup after missing two races this season. Hes looked a lot better here in practice recently, Spangler said. Were excited to see what he can do [today]. Hes going to be key for us. The women are shaking off Championships their worst team outing in the event since 2007 as they prepare for the regional race. Weve left that behind, redshirt senior Agata Strausa said. Weve acknowledged that some teams were better on that day. Strausa said that one form of motivation for the team to perform well at the SEC Championships was the pride of running on their home course. We wanted to do well for our fans here, she said. There was a lot of pressure, and its not that its less pressure at regionals, but at regionals, we can race with more risk and just let it all out because this is very important for us to qualify (for the NCAA Championships). Strausa was the only Florida ish in the top 10 in the 119-competiished in 30th place or worse. They hope to change that outcome when they run their 6K today. Cross country depends on a daily form, and on that day, there were just other teams that were in a come that we all get it together and have awesome races and, on that day, we will be winners again. 16, ALLIGATOR Sarah Davis / AlligatorMark Parrish (left) and Jimmy Clark run during the SEC Championships on Nov. 1 in Gainesville.
