Teresa Trice, a member of the UNC Women's
gymnastics team, qualified regionally for a chance to
compete in the national gymnastics championships,,
which were held recently in Haywood, Calif, by the
Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women:
But Trice was then told that she could not make the
trip. - '
According to Coach Ken Ourso and Francis Hogan,
UNC women's athletic director, the gymnastics team
originally planned to send Trice and teammate Joan
Healy to represent UNC at the national meet. Then, when
a scoring error in the qualifying round was discovered,
disqualifying Healy, the decision was made not to send
Trice said that at the time Ourso refused to tell her who
made the decision about not going. She said he also told
her it was "none of her business".
Ourso said recently, however, that he and Hogan made
the decision together.
Whoever made the decision to first promise and then '
deny Trice the opportunity to challenge first-rate college '
gymnasts in national competition, both Ourso and Hogan
now defend the position by saying that Trice is only a
freshman the logic being that she has three more years
to compete, and that she probably wouldn't have done
well this year anyway.
That justification has been a small consolation to Trice,
who said the fact that she worked hard enough to qualify
was reason enough to send her. "It just seems like not
letting us go to the nationals when we do well really ruins
the incentive," Trice said.
Whether or not a coach or an athletic director has an
obligation to send qualified athletes on to higher
competition is an important question. And it is a topic
that both Ourso and Hogan wouldn't address.
There is also a question of consistency. Vicki
Greenwood, who is also only a freshman with three more
years of comeptition, qualified and was sent to the
National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) field
hockey nationals in Chicago in November.
Asked to explain the difference, Hogan said that
Greenwood had been "selected" by the NCAA for the
field hockey nationals, and that Trice had only "qualified
for" the gymnastics nationals.
Ourso and Hogan also pointed out that it is expensive
to transport only one girl and one coach all the way across
But Moyer Smith, UNC Assistant athletic director in
charge of finances, said he was never approached for the
In fact. Smith said that he was "very receptive to the
idea when it first came up," but that neither Ourso nor
Hogan ever formally asked the athletic department to pay
for the trip.
When asked to explain, H ogan said, "1 don't know why
you're trying to make such a big deal out of this."
The deal is this: If an athlete qualifies for post-season
competition, will his or her participation still be
contingent on what appears as arbitrary approval by
athletic officials? Who is to decide which post-season
qualifiers should be allowed to go on and which ones must
stay at home? -

The unlikely site for the affair is
Greenville, N.C, where the East Carolina
University (ECU) hockey club will host the
four-team tournament. Other than UNC and
ECU, a similar organization from Duke will
participate, along with a team of rink rats
irom Greensboro, who call themselves the
Greensboro All Stars.
On Friday, UNC will play Duke and ECU
will tangle with Greensboro. The two
.winners will battle Saturday for tournament
honors, with losers playing in a consolation.
Still young, the UNC club was hastily
formed in late January of this year and took
to the ice one month later, almost to the day.
Led by club president and acting coach
Lloyd Scher, the club raised enough money
to get the necessary equipment, and travel to
Charlotte to play two games against teams
from the Charlotte Senior League.
UNC emerged from that weekend affair in
February with a win and a loss. It took a first
game 1-0, but lost the second 6-5, after
blowing a 5-2 lead.
The club has not had a real practice
session due to lack of ice facilities in the area.
However, it has managed to get to
Greensboro (nearest available ice) for some
