K-Mail Volume 2, Number 11
Welcome to my Email Newsletter! Your ideas are
important to me.
Well, it really isn't summer time yet, but
with only two more meets I know that many of you are thinking ahead! So, I
decided to put up my 'Summer Edition' K-Mail header, as we all prepare for the
great days of summer! ... but first we GATORS have
a lot of work to do!
Before we preview the NCAAs for you, here are some more great honors and awards for Florida T&F!

2003 NCAA Preview .... Throwing Caution to the Wind!
Outdoor NCAAs in Sacramento!
♪♫ California, Here We Come! ♪♫
Before hitting that beach, we have the NCAA's in Sacramento and the USATF Sr. Nationals in Palo Alto to work toward! So let me highlight how things stack up in that little meet in California's capital!
There's a lot of tough competition ahead for those who want to earn the 'All American'
recognition! Getting into
that elite top 8 isn't as easy as it once was...
and making it as an outdoor 'All American' can be a real challenge!
The descending order lists below says that the Gators could win a total of 23 points in the throws! Well... we'll see if we can beat those odds! :) By the way, 'IRONWOMAN' Dore' DeBartolo is competing in three events... shot ,discus and hammer! I'm pretty sure she's the only one to do that in the throws this year.
WOMEN'S SHOT PUT!
UCLA sophomore - Last year, she did what she does so often, throw the
big unexpected throw to win the 2002 outdoors at 57' 1/4."
Today is full of new challenges. Not only does Jessica have her hands full with out-of-state competitors, but look at some of the 'old California friends' she gets to face again!
Jill Camarena -- California State Champ in 1999
Stephanie Brown -- California State Champion in 1998 & 1996
Karen:) -- California State Champion in 2001 & 2000 (Jessica was runner-up in 2000)
There are plenty of other girls who could have the 'hot hand' at any time, and I am not counting out my teammates ... tough, competitive and always ready to rumble!
Event 37 Women Shot Put ** Qual: 13.90 **
