HANNA MARCUSAlligator Staff Writerhmarcus@alligator.orgTwo budget bills were approved in Tuesday nights Senate meeting, but each was met with only one vote of opposition. The approved budgets, one that allocates funds for academics and another for student organizations, will allocate $423,973 to academics and $998,240 to student organizations. Although eight senators spoke during the pro rounds of each budget, only one senator, Michael Christ, spoke during the con portion of each budget. The debate proved combative, and Senate President Dylan Fisher had to redirect senators comments three times. Christs main concern was money being allocated to only a select powerful few in Student Government and that three organizations are receiving nearly one-third of the organization budget. Student Government is too big I think we are constantly raising fees and taking money from students pockets, he said. When large sums of money are directed toward few organizations, we need to be aware of it, and we need to be concerned with it. Tonight we are allocating $1.4 million. Thats a huge responsibility. Davis Bean, chairman of the budget committee, said three organizations receiving a large portion of the funding Volunteers for International Student Affairs, Hispanic Student Association and Asian American Student Union have about 41 organizations underneath them. These sub-organizations hold their own independent Student Senate OKs allocation of $1.4 million to organizationsLOCAL BEWARE OF STANDING WATER. ALEXIA FERNANDEZAlligator Contributing WriterMosquito season is here earlier than usual, and the Alachua County Health Department is gearing up to prevent the rise of a mosquito infestation. reported case of the mosquito-borne West Nile virus that environmental health director Anthony Dennis could remember. And this year it is hoping to prevent another case of the virus. Because we had a wet winter and now a wet spring, were expecting it to be a wet summer, and thats going to breed more mosquitoes, Dennis said. The department stresses the importance of drying out items that collect water, insaid. Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water, and it only takes a few days for larvae to grow into adult mosquitoes. Gainesville has a lot of standing water at the moment, which is always a concern because it causes adult-biting mosquitoes to be present, Dennis said. The department also suggests other tips such as using bug spray, wearing protective clothing and repairing window screens to prevent contact with mosquitoes. Hilario Cabrera, a 22-year-old UF psychology senior, said he takes precautions whenever summer approaches. He wears more bug spray and takes out the trash often. I hate mosquitoes, so I try to avoid doing things that could make more, he said.They suck: Florida mosquito season starts earlier than usual RYAN BAUMAlligator Contributing WriterRed Bull is bringing a concert to Gainesville this week, but due to a campus contract snag, it cant promote the event at UF. The Red Bull Sound Select tour bus will join electro-pop duo Cherub for a free concert Thursday night at The Wooly. A Red Bull campus spokesman said the company originally considered bringing the concert to Flavet Field. It is a company-wide policy for Red Bull employees to be unnamed in the media. But Bob Miller, UFs associate vice president of business, said UFs contract with Pepsi prohibits other brands of drinks from being distributed or promoted on campus. When we have a contract for exclusive beverage or food service provider then they get exclusive access to campus, Miller said.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 3 ITS A 1.5-MILE WALK. MEGAN KELLYAlligator Contributing WriterStudents can stroll through Gainesvilles startup central Thursday night. The UF Entrepreneurship Club and the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation are teaming up to visit about 30 businesses in a 1.5-mile walk for an event dubbed Startup Crawl. It is a continuation of an event the nally called the Startup Walk, said Ian Mitchell, president of the Entrepreneurship Club. The purpose of Startup Crawl is so that the Gainesville tech community, our startups, our campus, our Student Body and the community itself all can have an event they can rally around that really gives them a chance to check up on each international business graduate student. Participants will visit major technology and startup companies between campus and downtown. Startup Crawl has tour groups at 4:45, 5:15 and 5:45 p.m. The times are subject to change depending on the attendance, Mitchell said. The event is free and open to the public, but participants are encouraged to RSVP on the Facebook page because there is a limit of 120 people. David Nassau, a 19-year-old UF marketing sophomore, is involved in both the club and the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Nassau attends Startup Hour monthly and said his favorite thing is the people he meets. Gainesville is a cool place, and the people are even cooler, Nassau said. Especially when youre in a room with people who had an idea and went forward with it.Entrepreneurial students to explore startup centralLOCAL MELISSA MIHMAlligator Contributing WriterCat overpopulation is about to paws. Catnip is aiming to reduce the number of homeless felines with its free spaying and neutering services. Program coordinator Erin Mack said it recently received an anonymous donation that will pay for 100 feral cats to get spayed or neutered. It happened randomly, and we just couldnt believe it, Mack said. Were so happy that someone else cares as much about the cats as we do. Mack said springtime is an especially important time to prevent the births of more kittens that would otherwise be homeless. Cats that have been spayed or neutered can which provide free spaying, neutering and vaccinations for stray and feral cats. The County Humane Society, located at 4205 NW Sixth St., and holds clinics at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine, 2015 SW 16th Ave. Its a really great way of reducing the population of stray and feral cats and keeping them out of the shelter, which keeps them from being killed, Mack said. helped more than 40,000 cats, she said. It relies on the help of donations and volunteers. Chris Pereira, a 20-year-old UF public relations senior, has two cats: Bentley, 2, and Princeton James, 10 months. He said seeing the stray cats around Gainesville makes him sad, and he wishes he could give all of them a home. I love animals, but I was never really a cat person until I moved away to college, Pereira said. Cats arent as affectionate as dogs, but they still give me that animal companionship that I otherwise would not have.Donor enables 100 cat surgeries Its a really great way of reducing the population of stray and feral cats and keeping them out of the shelter, which keeps them from being killed.Erin MackOperation Catnip program coordinator


or given away, including (Red Bulls) entire line of drinks. Thursdays show, which will take place in downtown Gainesville, is open to participants who RSVP on the event Doors will open at 9 p.m. Opening acts for this leg of the tour include Carousel and Future Unlimited. Unlike Gainesville, the other three Florida dates in the tour Tampa, Orlando and Tallahassee will feature the custom stage that unfolds from the Red Bull Sound Select tour bus, said the tour bus manager Akoni Kama. The process of setting the stage up and breaking it down is labor-intensive, so the tour bus is generally not used on consecutive days, he said. Thats why it wont make an appearance in Gainesville. The Florida dates are the only free shows in Cherubs nationwide tour. Its an attempt to connect band members with college-age fans at some of the states largest universities, according to a Red Bull press release. Jason Huber, a member of the Cherub duo, said although the Gainesville stop will be different, he is looking forward to it. Weve never been to Gainesville, so we dont know what to expect, said Huber. But thats the best part of this tour, playing in new markets and making new friends.Gainesville won't have unfolding stage 4, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 2014 Senators debated food funding, frugalityevents and they do their own things, Bean said. In order to these organizations have like causes, we group them together under someone so they have that leadership umbrella up top. ing debates, issues about funding resurfaced. Christ reiterated his point that he believes organizations can do more with less. I want to fully fund the student orgs so they can be the best they possibly can be but I think they are already overfunded, he said. Sen. Anthony Sorrentino, who spoke in the pro portion of the debate, said in comparison to last years budget, only two organizations saw increases. If there is a fear of the size of their budget, it is not apparent in this budget, he said. Sen. Joselin Padron-Rasines agreed. She said if responsible organizations were overfunded, they wouldnt need to come back the following year requesting more money. Every year, organizations see a need not a want, but a need to request more funding because they do see that they need to put on more events or more money for their programming, she said.

BULL, from page 1 THE ASSOCIATED PRESSLAS VEGAS Federal authorities have lodged two criminal charges against a Phoenix woman accused of throwing a shoe at Hillary Rodham Clinton while she gave a convention speech at a Las Vegas Strip resort. Alison Michelle Ernst, 36, didn't respond to a phone message Monday about the charges of trespassing and violence against a person in in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas. She could face up to a year in federal prison on each charge if she's convicted. A court date wasn't immediately set, and it wasn't clear if Ernst had a lawyer. Las Vegas police booked Ernst last week on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge and freed her with a June 24 court date. ChargThe federal charges accuse her of bypassing security to enter the ballroom where Clinton was speaking and committing a violent act by throwing the shoe, which police say she pulled from a purse and hurled about 60 feet toward the former secretary of state. Clinton expressed surprise but wasn't struck by the shoe. Feds charge woman who threw shoe at speaking Hillary Clinton SHE WAS FEATURED IN "SAME LOVE."

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 2014 ALLIGATOR, 5AP PhotoProtecting Remembrance THE ASSOCIATED PRESSTAMPA A researcher from the University of South Florida said Tuesday that a team of forensic experts is using DNA, skeletal analysis and digital X-rays to identify the remains from a former reform school on the Panhandle. Erin Kimmerle and Hillsborough County Sheriff David Gee met with U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson to share what they have found at the Arthur G. Dozier School for Boys. So far, Kimmerle said, DNA has been fully analyzed for 12 sets of remains. Its a very slow process, but its thorough, she said. USF researchers began excavating the graveyard at the now-closed school in Septhe Marianna site, but researchers found the remains of 55 people. Some former students from the 1950s and 1960s have accused employees and guards at the school of physical and sexual abuse, but the Florida Department of Law Enforcement concluded after an investigation that it couldnt substantiate or dispute the claims. Kimmerle said it will take months to extract and analyze the DNA from the 55 exhumed bodies. Kimmerle showed Nelson a computerized image of a young boy a facial composite of one of the sets of remains excavated from the site. The photo is of an African-American boy, about 10 years old. Its an effort to put a face with the remains, she said. All the bodies found were interred in from manufacturers, Kimmerle said. Some were found under roads or overgrown trees, well away from the white, metal graves. Kimmerle said that its unclear if there are other graves elsewhere on the school site. The property is 1,400 acres, and her though she has received tips that graves are located elsewhere on the property.DNA, digital X-rays used to ID school remains near USFResearchers have analyzed 12 sets STUDENTS SHOULD BE WARY OF GOOGLE NICOLE GIAQUINTOAlligator Contributing Writerternet for solutions to healthrelated concerns should be wary about their search results. The goal really was to just said Brent Kitchens, the lead author of a new UF study on the quality of health-related Internet sources. Kitchens and the other researchers conducted the study by looking at an index of terms that consumers interested in health information might search. The list is from Medline Plus, a website provided by the National Institute of Health. They then typed each of the about 2,000 terms into Google and looked at the quality of the results that came back. They determined the quality of the results by going out to other institutions that evaluate health-care-information quality or website quality. They found that, on average, more than half of the information that comes back is typically high quality. Maybe more interestingly, the quality seems to be different for different types of information, said Kitchens, also a doctoral candidate at the UF Warrington College of Business Administration. Terms that deal with things such as cancers, bodily systems, lungs, immune systems and digestive systems came back with higher-than-average quality, while things like substance abuse, nutrition, wellness, personal health, safety issues, and family and social issues came back with lower-quality results. That information may be interesting and it might get you started down the path of seeing a physician is probably the best way to go with those types of things, Kitchens said. Natalie Rella, a specialist at GatorWell Health Promotion Services, said she agrees its important for students to be cautious when searching for health-related topics online. Students have come to her with false information they found online on topics like pregnancy prevention, Rella said. I think its always wonderful to have empirical evidence supporting things that we may already know anecdotally, and now we can say a sound study took place that can back it up, Rella said. Its just another thing for students to take in and consider when they are going online to get information at that when they are doing this to use caution.Stop Googling symptoms: Health answers online iffy at LOC AL BRANDON KRUMINSAlligator Contributing WriterLocal organic grocers and farmers are generally unconcerned by Wal-Marts recent partnership with Wild Oats, an organic food brand that will bring cheaper products to its shelves. Lisa McNett, general manager of the Citizens Co-op, said she doesnt think the change will affect her grocery stores sales because it doesnt share a customer base with Wal-Mart. Our shoppers understand they are paying a little extra for a quality local product, McNett said. They are supporters of the local community and local farmers. On the other hand, Wards Supermarket natural foods manager Russ Welker said it may help the industry. Having more organic food items on the shelves is the best thing we can hope for, Welker said. The more good food available to the public, the better. He said there isnt much room to cut prices without losing money because organic food sellers have to stay in the same price realm. But a superstore such as Wal-Mart, with a broader variety of items for sale than a small organic supermarket, has more leeway. Marty Mesh, executive director of the Florida Organic Growers, said the effect that WalMarts price cuts will have is yet to be determined. However, he said he hopes it will implement a strategy he calls loss leaders. The strategy occurs when a store sells one product at a lower price to increase the amount of customers who come into the store. In Wal-Marts case, the lost income will be replenished when those who typically wouldnt shop at the superstore purchase other items in addition to organic foods, Mesh said. Wal-Mart is powerful enough to hurt the organic food industry and could drive down growers labor and production costs, he said. I hope it doesnt change the nature of organic farming, Mesh said. But ultimately, Mesh said he doesnt see it as a threat. We see it as an opportunity for organic food to become a large slice of the food pie for the betterment of both consumers and producers, he said.Organic produce providers not worried about Wal-Mart campaign Its an effort to put a face with the remains.University of South Florida researcher Having more organic food items on the shelves is the best thing we can hope for.Russ WelkerWards Supermarket natural foods manager

GUSHUE RECORDS TWO RBIs ON THREE HITS IN WIN. ADAM PINCUSAlligator Staff Writer@adamDpincusThe Gators had their work cut out for them two weeks ago. An eight-game road trip that included three top-10 teams awaited them. Theyve responded and then some having defeated Florida Gulf Coast (24-14, 9-3 Atlantic ish its road trip against Kentucky, Florida State, South Carolina and Gulf Coast. The No. 9 Gators (24-13, 9-6 Southeastern Conference) started the trip a game up on the Gamecocks in the SEC Eastern Division. They have sole possestiebreak against the Gamecocks games. Florida naturally could have top-10 ranking in two years. It didnt. I really like how were playing now. Obviously we have a long way to go, OSullivan said. Were only halfway through the conference schedule here, but this is an important game. This is one of those trap games. Catcher Taylor Gushue drove in Richie Martin twice on singles up the middle. Casey Turgeon hit a RBI single through the right side to score Buddy Reed. Turgeon went 2 for 5 on Tuesday night. The RBI represented the 14th two-out run scored by UF on its eight-game road trip. Martin drove in Turgeon to the Eagles and took second on the throw home in the fourth inning. Florida had nine hits by the singles and the last a double by Reed. Florida added three more in the seventh inning on singles by Braden Mattson and Peter Alonso line by reigning SEC Freshman of the Week A.J. Puk. Every starter besides third baseman John Sternagel registered a hit. Its just like anything else in William A. England/ Alligator StaffTaylor Gushue bats during Floridas 3-1 win against FSU on March 18 at McKethan Stadium. Gushue drove in Richie Martin twice on singles up the middle in UFs 7-1 victory Tuesday night against FGCU. JORDAN MCPHERSONAlligator Writer@J_McPherson1126With just 10 games left in the regular season, coach Tim Walton wants his team to remain composed with postseason play around the corner. Riding a six-game win streak, Walton knows his team has the capability to sucference series. The key for us is being able to stay focused on who were playing, he said. We can beat anybody. Weve proven that this season. We can beat anybody. But weve also proven that we can lose to anybody as well, so I think in preparation its just going to come down to execution. For the ninth-year coach, the Gators success begins with their pitchers. It starts in the circle for us, Walton said. If we can pitch well, I think we can beat anybody. Were a tough team to match up against because of our speed and our power and really the twoor three-headed monster that we can go with in the circle. Added senior Hannah Rogers: Weve all been working hard in the bullpen and coming up here in our off days. [Were] just doing everything that we can to get better. Rogers has taken an increased workload as of late. In the past 10 games, the Lake Wales native pitched a teamleading 38 innings. The rest of Floridas pitchers threw just 27 frames during that same span. Rogers has a team-best 1.81 ERA shutouts in 2014 bring the right-hander to 34 in her career, four shy of tying Stephanie Brombacher for the secondmost in UF history. As the lone senior on the pitching UF relying on pitching as regular season nears closeG A TORS IN THE NBA JONATHAN CZUPRYNAlligator Staff Writer@jczuprynPrior to Friday night, Corey Brewer had never scored more than 29 points in an NBA game. During his three-year tenure at Florida under Billy Donovan, Brewer topped out at 26 points. So when the Minnesota Timberwolves forward exploded for 51 points in a 112-110 victory over the Houston Rockets on Friday, he even managed to surprise himself. Im not even going to lie, Brewer said, according to the Associated Press. Fifty?!? You know how many guys scored 50 in the NBA? Thats what makes it such a special night because I never in my career expected to score 50. Theres a lot of good company up there. Brewers 51-point breakout performance tied teammate Kevin Love for a franchise record, which was set in a 149-140 overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on March 23, 2012. Not only did the 6-foot-9 forward lead his team to victory Friday, but Brewer also showed off his defensive skills by tying a season-high six steals. 1973-74, only Michael Jordan, Allen Iverson, Rick Barry and Brewer have recorded at least 50 points and six steals in a single game. But no 50-point performance was more unexpected than Brewers on Friday night. I thought I was in high school again, Brewer said in the Timberwolves locker room following the game. Everything was going in, but I was just playing. I wasnt thinking about it until someone was like, You got 44, you can get 50 tonight. I was like, Oh, yeah OK, whatever. Then I actually got 50.

MARTIN SERVED AS TENNESSEES COACH FOR THREE SEASONS. LANDON WATNICKAlligator Staff Writer@LandonWatnickThe Cuonzo Martin Experiment at Tennessee is over. After three years as the Volunteers coach, Martin bolted from Knoxville, year contract to become Californias next coach. He will replace Mike Montgomery, who retired in late March after coaching the Golden Bears for six years. Martin is fresh off a run to the Sweet 16 at Tennessee, during which his team, as a No. 11 seed, knocked off 11-seed Iowa 7865 in overtime in a play-in game, 6-seed UMass 86-67 and 14-seed Mercer 83-63 before falling to 2-seed Michigan 73-71. Each season while at UT, his teams record improved. In 2013-14, the Volun fourth in the Southeastern Conference. Martin, who previously coached at Missouri State before taking over for Bruce Pearl, went 63-41 at Tennessee in three seasons. The move from Knoxville to Berkeley, disliked how Tennessees athletic department and its fanbase treated him. Earlier in the season, Vols fans started an online who is now at Auburn. Some of Martins former players expressed that sentiment via Twitter. Cant treat people any kind of way and expect good in return, Jordan McRae (@JordyMac52) posted.

Florida hopes to buck that trend this weekend. Shelton will look to seniors Mike Alford and Florent Diep to lead the way, but he also expects his younger players to carry some of the weight in the postseason as they have been doing in the regular season. Shelton was pleased with the play of Alford and Diep this past weekend in a loss to Vanderbilt and a win against Kentucky. They came out and played extremely well, Shelton said. They came out and got the job done for us; not only in doubles, but in singles. Its been fun to see those guys in leadership roles for our team to come through in big moments for us, especially in the SEC. He also praised others like Lipman, two freshmen who have played with poise recently. do well. Were asking a lot of them every week, Shelton said. Theyre really having to step Gators.

this game. You kind of go through spurts where youre seeing the ball good as a group and there are spurts where youre not seeing the ball good, OSullivan said. I think the road trip has helped. Hopefully it has brought our team closer together. Right-hander Ryan Harris threw two scoreless innings or more innings since March 21. OSullivan wanted Harris to throw about 30 pitches in Left-hander Kirby Snead followed Harris with his usual effective work, getnings. He retired 12 of his 13 batters at Hammond Stadium. Snead has not allowed a run in all but four of his 18 appearances. Kirby Snead was outstanding. He threw four innings. I dont even think he threw 40 pitches, OSullivan said. Hes going to be ready for this weekend. Gulf Coast scored its only run on a seventh-inning double over the head of cenby Michael Suchy off righthander Justin Shafer. The right-hander pitched two innings in relief before freshman Shaun Anderson ninth. Florida outhit Gulf Coast 15-4 and took advantage of three Gulf Coast errors. Florida, named No. 1 in RPI on Tuesday, is 12-6 this season against the NCAAs top-25 RPI teams and 8-1 against South Carolina, Florida State and LSU. The Gators avenged a loss to Gulf Coast on Feb. 27 and clinched the three-game season series. Georgia visits Gainesville for a three-game series starting Friday night at 7:30, which also begins an eightgame home stand. Its tough to go in the venues we played at, OSullivan said. We went up to Florida State and played in that environment. I think it was a sellout. We go to South Carolina and obviously we had three sellouts there. We had to bond together as a group.

The safety bit on a ball fake, so I was able to beat the corner and I got free for a touchdown. Hopefully, the Redskins will pick me up. ALLIGATOR, 15Rogers elevating game defensively for Gatorsstaff, Rogers has taken on more of a leadership role as the season progresses. Shes really done a good job of communicating with them and teaching them the way and having one-on-one conversations about her early success and her early failures and things they need to work on, does this just by doing it and not necessarily having to say a lot. Rogers has also shown improvement with her play on defense in her she helped turn three of Floridas 15 double plays this season. Most people dont realize how important her defense is to an incan make plays that our shortstop cant, it really helps not only the speed of the game, but getting out of innings when the other team looks like its going to potentially rally. the brunt of the work with the season drawing to a close, Walton said the rest of his pitching staff also especially since each pitcher makes different contributions to the team. Freshman Delanie Gourley paces the Gators with 113 strikeouts the third-highest total among freshmen her belt. Junior Lauren Haeger, despite being limited to just 62.2 innings on the season and 10 frames in the past 10 games, is holding opponents strikeouts. In her one-inning appearance against North Carolina State on Saturday, the Peoria, Ariz., native needed just 16 pitches to retire three batters, fanning two batters in the process. One thing you notice is how hard (Haeger) was throwing the ball, Walton said. You know, Hannahs really stepped up and has carried the majority of the innings here as of late, which can be great. Shes fresh. She can take the bulk of the load, but we need all our pitchers. We need to work hard and continue to be tough for other teams to prepare for us, and Lauren is a key component to our team.

LOGAN MCGUIREAlligator Writer@loganjmcguireEvery race is unique. Different swimmers, different times, different distances and different strokes in different pools, but there is one constant. Before they hit the water, before they step on the blocks and before some even get to the pool deck, all of the Gators go through the same steps to get ready. Pre-race routines are religious for some swimmers, and they can start as soon as they wake up on the day of a meet. Some are less serious. Florida sophomore Ryan Rosenbaum needs two things: coffee and a good pair of socks. Race day starts with a morning swim, usually three hours before the meet, he said, followed by a coffee with cream and sugar that he and a small group of swimmers have before every meet. Theres a nice little group of coffee-addicted people on the team, Rosenbaum said. The whole crew will just go to Dunkin right before the meet. But the Fort Lauderdale native makes it as much of a point to have on a nice pair of socks as he not just any socks will do. His most notable pair is blue with the red and yellow Superman S emblem on the front and a red cape in the back. You read that right. Socks with capes. Then its the hype music, a staple in the diet of pre-race pumpups for athletes across nearly every sport. Some like to keep it serene and calm their minds, but Rosenbaum prefers something a bit more aggressive when hes gearing up in the locker room. Just really, really mean rap, he said. This year his go-to jam is Shabba by A$AP Ferg. Its gritty, tough and gets him ready to go. Its even penetrated the minds of the swimmers around him in practice. During normal sets, youll just be thinking of the Shabba, he said. He is not the only one who likes to have fun before the meets. Senior Elizabeth Beisel routinely jokes around with her teammates to keep her mind off of the race at hand. She said she listens to her iPod depending on her mood to amp herself up, ranging from electric dance music to rap if shes feeling hardcore. But her ultimate preparation is energetic jokester who bounces around the pool deck spreading her boisterous laughter becomes the two-time USA Olympian and All-American who was the face of the Gators womens swimming and diving team during her tenure at Florida, which ended last month at the NCAA Championships. Her intensity is palpable as she glares at her opponents in neighboring lanes, shaking out her arms and legs, loosening her muscles, Everybody likes knowing that theyre going to win going into a race, but thats never a given, Beisel said. But the more you can convince yourself that youre going to win, the higher chance that youre going to have to win. Thats when I do my best. When Im redent thats when its not good. Its a similar process for junior Dan Wallace. His preparation starts days before a meet in order to keep his mind off of swimming and the looming competition wasnt coming at all. He likes to be with friends and go about his daily life, attending class and practice while enjoying the weather when the sun is out. Just go day by day and just act like its no big deal, Wallace said. And that even keel carries over to the meet as well. Breakfast and warm-ups are the common routine. There isnt day. He laughs with his teammates to keep himself from focusing too much on his upcoming events, but when hes staring down the lane, is over. I get behind the blocks and I know its go time, Wallace said. School is a good distraction for senior Marcin Cieslak, who also likes to keep himself distant from a meet in the days leading up to it. In his native country of Poland, there is no collegiate athletic track for swimmers to take, so the distractions that he values are less present. out because then you can put more focus and you have more energy, Cieslak said. It doesnt wear off. His attitude doesnt change for bigger meets. The consistency is part of what allows him to continually perform at a high level like winning NCAA titles in the at the national championships in March. The morning of a meet, the 2012 Polish Olympian uses a cold shower to wake himself up and start harnessing that energy he reserves for days. Stepping on the deck is a whole other sensation. The second I show up to the pool I can smell the racing, he said. My heart starts to beat faster. er cheer of the Florida swimming up. Now, hes ready to race. As all four swimmers step up, eagerly waiting to hear swimmers, take your mark, there is one thing they all share in common. The thoughts racing through their heads when they are perched plode into the water absolutely nothing. Their minds go blank. The time for thinking is over. All the practice, the preparation, the psych-up music, the cheers and even the socks culminate in the moment just before the horn sounds and the body takes over as they plunge into the water. Their routines are different, but the goal is always the same: Swim fast. 16, ALLIGATOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 2014 Jordan McPherson / Alligator Staff Getting ready: Florida swimmers share pre-race routinesPlaylists, rituals motivate Gators
