The Joy of Communing with Christ

When Jesus was with the
Apostles during His ministry, they
experienced a bit of heaven.
Then, as His time on earth was
coming to an end, He began to
prepare them for His crucifixion
and death. He was also preparing
them for His Resurrection and
Ascension, as seen in the Gospel
of Saint John, Chapter 16. The
Apostles do not realize the full
extent of the events that are about
to unfold before them, and they do
not have the ability to
comprehend just what Jesus is
telling them.
Although He is gently trying
to reveal what is about to happen
to Him, and that the outcome will
bring them more joy than they can
know, there is an air of sadness
beginning. As Jesus prepares
Himself for the fulfillment of
God's plan, their sadness will
increase until the time of His
resurrection. Even with all of the

miracles they have seen Him culmination of God's plan; it was
perform, they have that human only the beginning. The Apostles

Following the Ascension, the
Apostles are once again deprived
of the bodily presence of their
Teacher. They made prayers and
supplications until the day of
Pentecost was upon them. As
Jesus had told them, the
Comforter came and the Holy
Ghost filled them. The Apostles
could now understand all that
Jesus had told them, as the Holy
Ghost revealed it to them. They
were filled with joy and now
knew that even after their death,
that they would be re-united with
Christ. By God's grace and their
faith in Jesus Christ, the end of
human life is not really the end.
By our Baptism and through faith
in God, Christians are in the
presence of our Lord and Saviour
now and will be for all eternity.

The love that we share with
our families here on earth in our
limited lives, has so many joys
.and sorrows, dreams and wishes,
some forgotten, and some that are
cherished for our lifetime. We
realize that although we wish it,
we cannot hold them forever, but
we can rest, assured that our Lord
gently cradles those who have
gone before in His arms and in
His loving care. His promise of
the Resurrection is the joy that
keeps our Faith strong during the
times of loneliness and sorrow.
The day of Pentecost is
coming soon, the Spirit bringing
the joy of communing with
Christ-let us all enjoy it together
as His children.

misuse of public funds, conflict of interest,
unauthorized use of city equipment, improper
repair of emergency vehicles, and fraudulent
record keeping.
On the misuse of public funds, Jewell
allegedly directed High Springs Fire Department
staff to conduct fire plan reviews on projects that
he had privately contracted with Gilchrist
County. It was also reported that Jewell took
public funds to pay High Springs firefighters to
work at a private Gainesville race track facility.
According to records, Jewell was a paid
emergency services supervisor at the race track
and used High Springs fire trucks during events
at the facility.
The investigation also revealed that Jewell
allegedly falsified payroll documents in
connection with city firefighters working at the
Gainesville race track. Jewell approved public
funds payment for staff who were supposedly
logging time at the High Springs Fire
Department, when they were instead working at
the track while Jewell was emergency services

The event consisted of patriotic
songs such as "Grand Old Flag"
and "God Bless America" along
with reading poems celebrating
the American military.
Many military memorabilia

badges, and personal letters.
Other items included mugs with

Jewell could not be reached for comment
Wednesday morning.
A pre-disciplinary meeting involving the
investigation's findings will be held next Tuesday
in City Commission chambers at High Springs
City Hall starting at 9 a.m. High Springs City
Manager Jim Drumm said his role as mediator
will be to listen to both sides of the issue and act
appropriately. Drumm said the hearing will give
Jewell the chance to tell his side of the story and
possibly clear him of any wrongdoing.
"It's an opportunity for Chief Jewell to talk
about these issues," said Drumm.
Jewell has been on leave of absence from his
position as Fire Chief since April after the State
Fire Marshall's Office had discovered that Jewell
allegedly committed several violations during a
fire training session he supervised in January.
Some of the violations included using
"flammable or combustible liquids" to start or
enhance a training fire, lack of certified fire
instructors, and not abiding by required safety

Reading and

math skills will

be emphasized
at Mebane

to 291 a year ago.
Mebane principal Veita
Jackson-Carter said the school
had gains on this year's test
even though it was not
reflected in the school's
overall performance. Scores
for reading, math, and science,
were slightly lower than last
year at Mebane. Jackson-
Carter admits faculty and
students have some work
ahead.of them to continue to
raise overall scores.
"There is some work we
need to do," said Jackson-
Even with the slight dip in
scores Jackson-Carter remains
positive about the future of the
school in regards to FCAT
performance. She said
Mebane is a small learning
community which means there
will be more teaching for
students in performing better
on the test.
Jackson-Carter said the
school will continue to
emphasize reading and math in
the classroom. She said
improving reading skills is
particularly important because
strong reading skills helps
students to succeed in classes
such as social studies, science,
and even math.
"Reading is the nucleus for
everything," said Jackson-

A real American hero is gone
I w1as saddened to hear that one of the best
heroes and businessmen had passed on and had
gone to heaven. A real good friend of mine, GIl nn
Markham. had gone to be \with the Lord. He \as
a real fine Christian, a World War II and Korean
hero veteran He was liked b\ both black and
\ hite: I ot could ha\e seen that if you attended his
Funeral and the special e\ent in his honor at the
ner CitH Hall in Alachua on Memorial Da\.
As a kid when asked where I liked to eat. it
was always, "let's go to the Rebel House." That
\\as my favorite place, as \well as for a lot of other
- people who came from miles around to eat there.
He was a lifetime member of Sons of
Confederate Veterans a true son. A true son
means that our father fought in the Confederate
Army. So \hen I did his funeral. I didn't hae just
one riderless horse. I had two. one military, and
one Confederate
* I alwvaNs remember Mr. Markham playing taps
at veteran'ss ceremonies and also Confederate
memorial ceremonies, the last one in memory of
Captain Dudley. My black Confederates thought a
lot of Mr. Markham. they brought up how it \\as
great to li\e in a community\ like Alachua and
surrounding area \\here there were no racial
.- problems. These black men, all friends and
cousins, also talk about how the\ liked eating at
the Rebel House.
I was already asked to do a Memorial ser\ ice
at the Gilchrist Count. Court House at 11 a.m.
with the riderless horse the same time as Mr.
Markham's funeral in Alachua. I couldn't be inr
two places at once. so I asked two of my black
Confederates soldiers if they would help out at the
S special ceremony with the military riderless horse.
The\ didn't hesitate. the\ said, "Sure. Mr
Markham n as always there for the Veterans past
and present, so \\e can be there for him."
When they got back from Trenton with tears in
S. their eyes, the\ said it didn't seem right, Mr.
Markham wasn't t play ing taps. I answered with a
smile. "Yes he \as he was play ing in heaven."
The music % ill go on %with this son-in-law and
grandsons in the Andre \ faniil\ band.

and a lot of other people \\ll also, thankful for

Alachua leaders are concerned for
recreational programs
"'Members of the Alachua City Commission
\oiced concern at their regular meeting Monday
night IMa> 211 about the future of recreational
programs mi the count) land city). Our recreation
programs are important because they pro\ ide
great activities for the children of our
community."-quote from Jean Calderwood, City
I personally would like to know \ hy the
program in the City of Alachua is hurting at all?
If we are encouraging so much de elopment in
this city, from the high technology jobs at
Progress Center to the hourly wage jobs at the
distribution' centers. why then are these
developers not contributing to the city in form of
I would like to see a city pool built near the
Recreation Center for the use of all citizens in this
town. I also wouldd like for the south ofAJachua
to ha\e free summer program acti\ cities. Currently.
it is only a\ ailable for those who can pay the heth
amount for the summer program. Funds could be
donated from the developers to make these
programs available
Since we do not ha\e any impact fees. this is
the least these developers could do for our
community\. I am tired of our city giving free
hookups, tax abatements, and infrastructure of
water. sew\er, roads, etc. and not getting anything
If we can afford a $10 million city hall
complex, and bloated city staff salaries, then we
can afford a free sununer program for the youth of
our city and a public city pool to sa\ the least.
I feel that it is high time that the City
Commissioners anrd staff reexamine the free gifts
to the developers and rededicate those monies to
the community that so rightfully deserve them.

High Springs Commissioner Byran

* Raiders hold annual
intrasquad scrimmage

Today Sports Writer
Spring practice came to a close last
Friday for the Santa Fe High School
football team. The Raiders capped off the
spring with an intrasquad scrimmage at
Raider Field that featured the Gray team
doubling up on the Red, 28-14.
The team was split into two separate
squads last week and practiced all week
until game day. The
format of the game,
which kicked off at 6
p.m., featured four 10-
minute running-clock
"I think the guys had a
*great time," said first-
Brooks year Santa Fe head
coach Bart Brooks. "I
was impressed with the crowd that
showed up and it was a great way to end
the spring.
"The biggest thing was getting out of
there without any injuries. We had one
minor knee injury but it seems to be fine.
Overall, spring practice was a success."
The first score of the game came from
running back Deonte Merrics. The rising
senior ball carrier dashed 60-plus yards in
the opening seconds to put his team
ahead, 7-0 following a Collin Mixon extra

for a head volleyball coach and a head
softball coach.
Jessica Ross held those two coaching
positions for the last two years.
"I think she is pursuing an opportunity
to further her education," said Newberry
Athletic Director Terrell Bass, who is
retiring from that position at the end of
June. "I haven't sat down with her to
discuss anything."
Bass said that Principal Hershel Lyons
and head football coach Tommy Keeler,
who is scheduled to take over as Athletic
Director, spoke to Ross about the
situation. Alachua County Today placed
several calls to Ross, but calls were not

Ross came to Newberry prior to the
start of the 2005-06 school year. She was
no stranger to the area, having coached
volleyball for four seasons at Dixie
County from 1999-2002. During that
time she guided the Bears to a district
title and three-straight regional semifinal
Her hope was to change the perception
of Newberry volleyball, but that proved
to be a challenging task. Prior to her
arrival, the Panthers had won only five
games since 2001, which included a
winless 2003 campaign. On top of that,
Newberry has not been to the regional

playoffs since 1982.
But in her two seasons as head coach,
the Panthers posted a 1-18 mark in 2005
before going winless at 0-23 last season.
"This is the most mentally exhausting
season I have ever had," said Ross at the
end of the 2006 campaign. "It was very
"I think they got used to losing," the
coach said. "It's what I've been facing
since I've been at Newberry. I've tried to
build their confidence. I don't know what
it is going to take to get that losing
mentality gone. I've tried everything."

This season as Stetson's third starter,
Hitchcock went 5-1 and had a 3.51
Earned Run Average. He made 16
appearances, starting 12 games and led
the Atlantic Sun with two complete-
game shutouts.
But it was what he did on the mound
in Stetson's conference tournament
game against Mercer last Friday that

received attention. Hitchcock worked 9
and 2/3 innings, throwing 104 pitches,
and allowing one run on three hits. He
struck out six and walked three batters
and retired nine in a row at one point.
His effort helped the Hatters pull out a
2-1 win in 11 innings. Hitchcock's
outing was also the longest by a Stetson

French not



Today Sports Columnist
Pardon their French. That's
all that can be said about the
United States men's
performance at the French
Open. On Tuesday, the US
was 0-for-8. That included
American hopefuls Andy
Roddick and James Blake
being ousted in the opening
round of the second grand
slam of the year.
For some reason, clay
courts just don't cooperate
with the US men. The last
American male to win the
French Open was Andre
Agassi in 1999, which seems
like a century ago. There's a
different breed of players
coming from America that are
on the tour today.
Roddick admits that the
French Open is not his
premier tournament and that's
not likely to change. His
game is more catered to hard
court tennis. That's probably
why the only slam he's ever
won was the US Open.
Roddick didn't prepare for
the French Open like "he
would Wimbledon or the US
or Australian Open. He did
little in the way of tune up for
the mighty clay court slam.
And, he's okay with that. He
knows his strength is on the
hard court and that's where
he'll excel, so there's no sense
in kicking himself over
another French Open loss.. ;
Blake is a relative
newcomer to the top-10 in the
ATP rankings. He may have
what it takes in the future to
be in the contention for the
clay court title, but it's going
to take plenty of work. Both

* Antwan Ivey scored
two touchdowns to
lead Newberry
Today Sports Writer
Ivey, Newberry's Class 2B first-
team all state running back, said
last Friday' spring game against
Buchholz was a big opportunity
for the Panthers and that it would
show whether they could
compete with a big school.
-Well, the Newberry High
School football team displayed a
lot of energy and excitement and
also proved they could do more
than just compete with a Class
5A club.
Ivey compiled 136 all-purpose

yards and scored a pair of
touchdowns as Newberry edged
Buchholz 20-13 in the opening
half of Friday's contest at
Citizens Field. The second half,
in which both teams played its
reserves and its junior varsity
squad, was the same result as the
Panthers clawed past the
Bobcats 17-14.
"This was a lot of fun. I
thought my team played great
tonight, we have room for
improvement, but I think we
played a great half," said Ivey,
who electrified the crowd with
an 80-yard kickoff return for a
touchdown in the second period.
"I think they probably
underestimated us and we

Today Sports Writer
The Santa Fe High School

know who their new head coach
is going to be. Since former
head coach Elliot Harris took the
boys basketball head position for
the Raiders on March 9, the girls

slowed down the process in
finding a new coach has more to
do with off the court issues.-
According to Faulk, Santa Fe is
waiting until the school year's
end, which is Friday, before the
Raiders will know what teaching
positions are available for an
incoming coach.
Faulk also says that she hopes
to fill the vacancy as soon as

performance offers an
opportunity to see how certain
parts of the world focus on
different styles or surfaces than
others. It's not a coincidence
that the American men went 0-8
on Tuesday. Clay courts just
don't seem to be of primary
focus for the US men.

Nadal-Federer final, but that's
not likely. Nadal, even though
he did struggle somewhat in the
opening round, will make the
final again. However, Federer
may lose before the quarters
because he'll most likely be
playing a great clay court player
in Juan Carlos Ferrero.
On the women's side, watch
out for Venus Williams. She's
such a dynamic player and
knows how to turn it on when
she wants to. She's not known
for her clay court ability, but she
can more than hold her own
when she's out there. She's
cruised through the first two
rounds in straight sets already.
Jelena Jankovic is the four
seed in this tournament, and she
and Venus, who is the 26 seed,
will meet up in the third round.
This will be a big test for Venus,
but she has been looking good
thus far in the French Open.
While the French Open isn't
the premier slam on the tour, it
certainly offers some of the best
points tennis can provide. Clay
court matches seem to last
forever because it's not as
difficult to track balls down.
There is no real smash put a way
at the French Open, just long
rallies and great saves.
Don't let the fact that the
Americans haven't done so well
so far put a damper on the
French Open. There are plenty
of other exciting players and
matches that will surely provide
just as good of entertainment for
the tennis enthusiast.

surprised them coming out and
going hard. I think we
accomplished a lot."
From the start, it appeared as
though Newberry came out with
more intensity and it showed as
the Panthers forced the Bobcats
to punt on their opening
possession. Newberry took over
on its own 33-yard line and
moved down the field before
quarterback Guy Brown's eight-
yard touchdown run capped the
nine-play drive and opened the
scoring. Phillip Warner added the
extra point as the visitors led 7-0
at the 5:09 mark.
"That [stopping us on our first
possession] definitely got them
fired up, that obviously gave
.them some momentum," said
Buchholz head coach Jay'
Godwin. "It was mental mistakes
that stopped us. I wasn't worried
about the emotion; I thought we
could build on that."
Newberry forced Buchholz to
punt again, but the Bobcats got
the ball right back on Ivey's lone
mistake of the night. The fleet-
footed rising senior dropped a
pitch and Buchholz recovered
the loose ball on the Newberry
35-yard line. Two plays later,
fullback Jonathan Dennison
rumbled 32 yards up the middle
to get Buchholz on the
scoreboard with less than one
minute to go in the opening
period. But Newberry still led 7-
6 as Brad Phillips missed the
extra point try.
After Newberry punted on its
first possession to start the
second quarter, the Bobcats
started to roll. Buchholz picked
up four first downs and cruised
79 yards on six plays as
Dennison's 23-yard scoring run
put the home team, in front.
Phillips followed with the point
after to give the Bobcats a 13-7
advantage with 8:23 left in the
first half.
"It just seemed like they were
just pounding that thing down the
field on us," said Newberry head
coach Tommy Keeler.. "I didn't
know if we were going to be able
to stop them, I really didn't."
But on the ensuing kickoff,
Ivey, who admitted that he was
surprised the ball was kicked to
him, proved poisonous for the
Bobcats. He darted 80-yards to
the end zone to tie the contest at
13-13, but Wamer's extra point
attempt was blocked leaving the
game deadlocked.
"We were flat and we were
acting like we weren't going to be
able to win that game," Keeler
said. "Then we get the big
kickoff return and that kind of
gave us our spark back.'
The Panthers defense
responded and halted Buchholz
at midfield. After just an 18-yard
punt from Henry Hill, Newberry
started its eventual game-
winning drive at its own 30-yard
line with 4:18 to go. Guy
Brown's 30-yard scamper moved
the Panthers down to the
Buchholz 30-yard line, before
the rising senior did damage with
his arm just five plays later. Guy
found his younger brother Ryan
Brown, who leaped and then fell
before hauling in an 18-yard fade
pass that'set up a first and goal
situation for the Panthers with 10
seconds left.:
After a Newberry timeout,'
Ivey took the pitch and
scampered one yard to put his
club ahead for good. Warner
tacked on the extra point for the
20-13 margin with six seconds
remaining. The Bobcats fielded
the ensuing squib kick at
midfield, but only managed two
short passes in the closing
seconds before the half ended.
"I'm real proud of them, if you
don't come out with some fire
against a team like this you're
going to get rolled all over the

field," said Keeler. "The first
drive we did a great job of
stopping them, but the rest of
time we were a little concerned
that they could just steam roll us
like that."
Ivey carried the ball 10 times
for 40 yards and a touchdown,
caught one pass for 16 yards and
had 83 return yards and another
score to round out his evening.
"We're going to face seven to
eight quality running backs each
season and Ivey can rank up

there with the guys we're going
to see," Godwin said.
Guy Brown completed both of
the passes he threw for 34 yards,
while adding 55 rushing yards
and the touchdown for the
Panthers, who had 124 yards on
the ground in the opening half.
"The first half we were trying
to see what we have done this
spring," said Godwin, whose
club was 5-6 last fall and lost in
the opening-round of the Class
5A regional playoffs. "We had a
tough time stopping them, which
shows us some of the things we
need to work on."
Dennison led the way for the
Bobcats with six rushes for 79
yards and the two touchdowns,
while Antwan Hughes added 73
yards on the ground on 11
attempts. Drew Gadaire was 6-
of-9 passing for 37 yards in the
first half.
The starters gave way to the
reserves as well as players from
the junior varsity for the second
half. The Bobcats controlled the
third quarter and scored twice by
taking advantage of two
Newberry fumbles. Jordan
Labby's eight-yard scoring run,
and Phillips' kick gave Buchholz
a 7-0 edge just over two minutes
into the period. Quarterback
Aaron Grant capped the scoring
for Buchholz with a three-yard
burst into the end zone with 44
seconds left in the quarter.
Phillips' final kick of the evening
made it a 14-0 score.
But Newberry answered back
as Alex Lewis' five-yard
touchdown run just 29 seconds
into the final period and David
McConnell's 46-yard scoring run
at the 8:44 mark knotted the
contest at 14-14. Warner, who hit
two extra points in the fourth
quarter, provided the eventual
final margin by nailing a 40-yard

half you're trying to sub guys and
you're trying to keep things
rolling," said Keeler, who is
preparing for his third season at
Newberry in the fall. "They had
the same problem over there that
we had, you're just trying to play
everybody and you're trying to
get a look at everybody."
The only difference was that
Godwin said he had 90 players
on his sideline, while Newberry
fielded a roster of 39 players.
Regardless of the difference in
numbers, Godwin was impressed
with the Panthers.
"They have three or four guys
who could start for any school in
this area," Godwin said. "If they
can stay healthy and stay
together they can definitely do
some damage."
Newberry posted a 6-5 record
last fall and made its first
regional-playoff appearance in
four seasons. The Panthers lost
12 seniors from last year's club,
but return a majority of its
personnel including linebacker
Benny Hadley, a Class 2B
honorable mention all-state pick
last year.
"Teams know now that we're
not going to be a push over," said
Ivey, who rushed for 1,820 yards
last season. "If they're going to
beat us they're going to work
hard to do it."

On the Red team's ensuing
possession, safety Darian
Taylor caught a fumble in
midair and ran it 35 yards for
another Gray touchdown.
Another Mixon PAT gave the
Gray team a dominant 14-0
early advantage.
It didn't get any better from
there for the Red team. Just a
few possessions later, Taylor
would strike again, this time
from the wide receiver slot.
Leon Williams threv a deep
ball to Taylor who took it in
for another touchdown on a
70-yard catch and run.
Following the extra point, the
Gray team held a 21-0 upper
hand, before Merricks scored
again in the closing seconds of
the first half.
Trailing by a whopping 28
points, the Red team got
things kicked off in the third
as quarterback Will Scaff
carried the ball on a keeper for
a 46-yard scamper. Scaff
capped off the drive with a
one-yard touchdown run to get
his team on the board. The
Red team would not convert
on the extra point, leaving a
22-point deficit.
The final score of the game
came from the Red team's
Keenan Jenkins who ran down
the left sideline for a
touchdown. The Red team
elected to go for the two-point
conversion as quarterback
Lane Presnell gave an option
pitch to Jenkins who ran it in
to provide for the final margin.

I love when folks look me
up on the Internet -
particularly when they're
sports fans responding to a
recent column, as opposed to
some wacky ex-girlfriend
Googling me.
This week we hear from
two readers, one with a
follow-up question, the other
with a follow-up story.
"Greg Maddux is a pitcher
to be remembered for
generations to.come. Some
years back, when Maddux
was achieving remarkable W-
L numbers and miniscule
ERAs, along with the four Cy
Youngs, the Wall Street
Journal pointed out that Cy
Young in his heyday couldn't
match the stats that Maddux
was posting. Of the pitching
greats who staffed the Atlanta
Braves in those years
(Maddux, Tom Glavine and
John Smoltz), those three are
Cooperstown-bound. But
whatever happened to the
fourth member of that
Mazzone-crafted rotation,
Steve Avery?" Bob from
Huntsville, Texas

I covered Steve Avery
when I was a sportswriter in
Atlanta. He was a tough kid
who could bring the heat,
twice winning 18 games as
the fourth starter for the
Braves. He injured a muscle
in his armpit, it became a
chronic injury, and he was
never the same. People
blamed Mazzone and Cox for
starting him too young he
was 20 when he broke into the
bigs. After falling out of the
league in 1999, he was last on
the mound during the '03
season for the 120-loss
Tigers, a shadow of his
former self.

"I enjoyed reading your
recent article about, the

various aspects of the
Heisman trophy and its
winners. My particular
interest in the Heisman'
revolves around Ed Smith, the'
model for the trophy itself,;
whom you mentioned in your
article. Eddie Smith was a
member of my extended
family. He was a really
charming and an
exceptionally nice guy.
"Ed played two years with
Washington, and then was
traded to Green Bay. After
one year there, he quit as a
player and became a coach of,
a minor-league team. Ed was
injured as a pro (shoulder, I
believe) that required special
care for the rest of his life.
"Over the years, we never
talked football. It was well
established that he just didn't.
want to talk about his,
accomplishments. The only.
minor exception was in 1989,
when we spent a weekend,
with them at their Lynbrook,,
Long Island, apartment. We
did examine and admire his-
Heisman trophy that he had-
been awarded a few years.
earlier, at the 50th.
anniversary celebration of the-
Heisman. We slept in the
room where it was kept. It-
was impressive!"
Ed passed, away several
years ago, near the year,

pitcher since Clint Chryser went
11 innings in 1997 against FRU.
"I was really excited to be able
to throw 9 and 2/3 innings and I
was happy to keep our team in it
long enough for us to win it, that
was an important game for us,"
Hitchcock said. "I knew it was on
my shoulders and I knew I had to
come out and throw a lot of
strikes, it was a big deal."
Hitchcock and his Hatter
teammates weren't the only ones
who realized how big his outing
"It was pretty special for me
that everybody came up to me
and they recognized the effort I
gave, it was pretty cool," said
Hitchcock, who was the only all-
tournament team member not to
be playing in the championship
game. "I was surprised to get on
the all-tournament team. It was
cool, I really enjoyed it and it
was a good feeling especially not
getting any postseasbn awards."
But unlike last year when

Stetson won its second straight
Atlantic Sun Tournament title,
the Hatters just claimed the
Atlantic Sun regular-season
crown this spring. But despite
that, Stetson still posted a 41-19
record and was given an at large
bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Stetson earned the number-three
seed in the Tallahassee Regional
and will face second-seeded
Mississippi State on Friday.
Florida State is the number-six
national seed and the top-seed
and host school for the regional.
The Seminoles open play against
fourth-seeded Bethune-
Cookman. The double-
elimination regional action starts
Friday and runs through Monday.
"We knew we were NCAA
worthy and now we're here and
we definitely have a shot to win
the regional," Hitchcock said.
"We have to take it one game at a
time, but we feel like we have a
good shot if we play like we're
capable of playing."
This is the seventh time in the
last eight seasons that Stetson has
advanced to the NCAA

Tournament. The Hatters have
been to five other regionals in
Tallahassee but this will be
Stetson's first ever meeting with
Mississippi State.
"It is not how you start, it is
how you finish," said Hitchcock,
who is slated to start Stetson's
third game of the tournament if
the Hatters win one of their first
two games. "We have work to do
and were going to try and do it in
the regionals."
While Hitchcock and the
Hatters are in the postseason,
Altenhof and Appalachian State's
season came to a close in the
Southern Conference
But Altenhof, who transferred
to ASU after two seasons at
Florida Community College at
Jacksonville (FCCJ), contributed
right away at the Division-I level.
After playing second base at
FCCJ, Altenhof moved over to
shortstop and was the
Mountaineers' leadoff hitter. He
started all 56 games and hit .327
for the season, with 35 RBIs and
a team-high 15 stolen bases.

"My season started off really
slow, but things started to click
and go my way and the hits
started to fall," said Altenhof,
who had a 13-game hitting streak
during the season as his average
ballooned to .380 at one point. "It
is a great feeling, even though
my average went down to .327 it
is still something to be proud of
playing at the Division-I level."
Aside from adjusting to the
cold weather in Boone, North
Carolina, and a position switch,
Altenhof said the pitchers at the
Division-I level throw
consistently harder that the
hurlers at the community college
"I was definitely happy (with
the season) although I didn't field
as well as I wanted to," said
Altenhof, who has already
started playing in the Coastal
Plain League, a wood bat league
that runs during the summer. "I
ended up having to play
shortstop and it is definitely an
honor to switch positions and
