(UWF Athletics) PENSACOLA, Fla. – The University of West Florida Department of Intercollegiate Athletics will induct the seven members of the 2012-13 Hall of Fame class on Friday, Jan. 25 at Scenic Hills Country Club. To honor them, one of the seven inductees will be highlighted each day for a week at www.GoArgos.com and today’s profile is former golfer Sarah Nicholson. The first UWF women’s golfer to be inducted into the hall of fame, Sarah Nicholson was a major factor in getting the program off the ground in blazing fashion.

The Cedar Falls, Iowa native received national recognition
as a three-time All-American, including a second team selection her senior season in 200607. That same year she won the Gulf South Conference Championship and subsequently was named the GSC Player of the Year, rounding out her career with three All-GSC nods after the conference started making selections in 2005. In total, Nicholson was a part of 13 team titles at West Florida - more than half of the total tournament wins in program history - along with two individual titles. She holds multiple records including lowest single season scoring average (75.85), 36 hole total (142) and 54 hole total (218) while ranking third alltime in career scoring average (78.70).

Bartlinski Named NSCAA Coach Of The Year
INDIANAPOLIS – After guiding the West Florida women’s soccer team to its first NCAA Division II national championship, fourth 20-win season and third NCAA championships appearance, coach Joe Bartlinski was given the highest honor given to a coach, the National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Field Turf Coach of the Year award. The Argos started the season on an 11-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 38-9 during that span. After losing to eventual No. 1 Armstrong 2-1 on Oct. 8, the Argos finished the season on a 13-game winning streak, outscoring opponents 39-4. Even more impressively, UWF outscored opponents 10-3 in five NCAA Tournament matches, with wins over North Alabama, No. 21 Tampa, No. 1 Armstrong, No. 20 and then-defending
national champion Saint Rose and No. 5 UC San Diego. “Surround yourself with unbelievable players and people and excellent things happen,” Bartlinski said. “It is a testament to the quality of players and individuals we have at UWF.” Bartlinski, the 2008 NSCAA D-II Coach of the Year, has one of the top winning percentages in the NCAA, with a 203-27-14 (.861) record at UWF. He is a five-time NSCAA South Region Coach of the Year at UWF and a fourtime Gulf South Conference Coach of the Year, earning both honors in 2012. Before coming to UWF, Bartlinski was a two-time NJCAA National Coach of the Year at Brevard CC. In 2012, he coached the NSCAA D-II Player of the Year, Chelsea Palmer (Plano, Texas/Tyler JC), five All-Americans, and nine All-South Region student-athletes. In 12 seasons at UWF, he has coached four national players of
the year and 29 All-Americans. At the conference level, Bartlinski has an 83-4-1 record in the GSC with five conference championships. He has coached five GSC Players of the Year, including the 2012 Player of the Year, Sarah Story (Hoover, Ala./Darton). Bartlinski has coached 46 All-GSC First Team members, including six in 2012. In addition, he coached three Argos to the All-GSC Second Team in 2012. As a team, the Argos finished as the No. 3 scoring offense in D-II, with 3.12 goals per game. Palmer led D-II in assists with 19, an average of .76 per game. In addition, Bartlinski coached five student-athletes to the NCAA Championships All-Tournament Team, including Palmer, the Most Outstanding Offensive Player, and Story, the Most Outstanding Defensive Player. With the addition of Bartlinski’s 2012

award, UWF has had 13 coaches earn National Coach of the Year Awards. He joins former tennis coach Ralph “Skeeter” Carson, current tennis coach Derrick Racine, and current men’s golf coach Steve Fell as the fourth Argo in UWF history to earn multiple coach of the year awards.

ARGOS RECORD CAREER HIGHS IN FIRST GSC WIN OF SEASON
Four Argos record career highs in victory over Lady Statesmen
(UWF Athletics) PENSACOLA, Fla. – The West Florida women’s basketball team picked up its first conference win of the season, 6651, against one of the top teams in the conference, Delta State, Thursday night at the UWF Field House. The Lady Statesmen (10-6, 5-3 Gulf South Conference) came into the contest tied with North Alabama for the top spot in the conference standings, but the Argonauts (4-12, 1-7) shut down the GSC’s No. 1 scoring offense en route to their first GSC win of the season.
“It was a great team effort tonight,” UWF coach Stephanie Lawrence Yelton said. “Our rebounding was outstanding. We really hit the boards. Beating one of the top teams in the conference, this is a huge win for us at this point in the season.” Four Argos recorded career highs in the victory. Jasmine Wigfall (Orlando, Fla./Timber Creek HS) scored 18 points, Emily Erland (Pegram, Tenn./Harpeth HS) grabbed 16 rebounds, Jaymie Druding (Orchard Park, N.Y./Maine) added 13 rebounds and Toynetta Johnson (Pascagoula, Miss./Pearl River CC) dished 11 assists. “Jasmine has really been coming on as a freshman,” Yelton said. “Emily was
all over the boards. She was a big reason we were getting all those rebounds and staying in the game.” The Argos never trailed against the most decorated program in the GSC. DSU has won 15 GSC titles, 11 more than any other team and 13 more than any other active team. The Argos started strong in the first half, led by Wigfall who scored 11 points in the first half and Erland and Druding who each grabbed 10 rebounds. UWF outrebounded DSU 30-16 in the first half. UWF only got hot hotter in the second half. The Argos shot an incredible 51.9 percent from the field in the second half and Hanna Vette (Tarkio, Mo./Mineral
Area CC) scored 20 of her 23 points in the second half, going 8-for-11 from the field. Vette scored 20 or more points in a game for the 10th time in her UWF career and fifth time this season. “Hanna is a very good player,” Yelton said. “Her game is evolving, and the sky is the limit for her.” It was the first victory for UWF against DSU since the 2008 UWF Tip-Off Classic Nov. 21, five seasons ago. UWF will host Christian Brothers Saturday at 2 p.m. at the UWF Field House. For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com.

Hunter’s Corner by Jim Taylor Well folks, the rut is here! It’s time to look for hot scrapes or fresh rubs – or as country folks say – “hooking and pawing.” One of the best ways to tell a hot scrape is
if there is fresh urine and a fresh hoofprint in the scrape. If you find this, look for a line of rubs and scrapes, and set up on this. If you are food plot hunting, be aware that the first deer you may see on your plot might be a button buck that has just been run off by his mom before
National Guard Retirees are invited to breakfast February 23 at the Ellyson Field National Guard Armory located at 8790 Grow Drive, Pensacola, FL 32514. Coffee and breakfast will begin at 8 am. For more information please contact Logan Fink at 850-516-7687.
she comes into season. Be patient and wait. Watch where he’s looking and wait for does to show up or Mr. Large and In Charge to come run the young buck off or chase the does. Now, this time of year you may hear bucks grunting. If you have never heard this before, it will
sound just like a hog. It’s a sure sign that a buck is chasing a hot doe. This is the time that you want to use your doe bleat and buck grunt to, hopefully, pull this buck in. Remember, with the rut on and the cold weather, this is the time to be in your stand as much as possible – deer will
move throughout the day. Don’t be afraid to move your stand 50 or 60 feet one way or the other and place your favorite scent up and down wind of your stand. Good luck to y’all! So far, it has been a long, hot season and the hunting should finally turn out great for all of us!

sica is one of the starters on the championship winning squad. Coach Jason Scott agrees about the uniqueness of the team. “This is a very tight team and a very talented team for this community.” When looking at the amount of local talent Scott mentioned that this team is not the norm when being compared to larger populated areas across the state. “When we played in Orlando competing and going to the finals in their tournament, there were comments about ‘Who is that team from the panhandle?’ dur-
ing the tournament. I have to tell you, this is unusual to have a team of this talent from this area.” Looking at the make-up of the team Scott was quick to mention the distances of some of the players. “We have one player from Mobile and another one from Gulf Shores and we are practicing here in Cantonment. This is the type of dedication this team has”
Scott emphasized. When asking the players which college they would like to play soccer at, the majority of them said Alabama followed directly by Duke, Tennessee and the University of Texas.
