UNCs dominance of the Carmichael Cup, the symbol
of excellence in Atlantic Coast Conference athletics, can
be attributed in part to its strong record in non-revenue
sports, UNC Athletic Director John Swofford said.
"We're pleased with the growth and quality of the non
revenue sports," Swofford said. "Our coaches are doing
an excellent job."
The student fee increase in this year's tuition will be
spent to maintain the level of financial support for non
revenue sports. Swofford said these sports probably would
not grow any more.
"We are close to having men's and women's non-revenue
sports equal in money spent and how we operate," he
said. "We want to maintain the quality of the program
now. That in itself is a challenge."
Overall, fall sports non-revenue teams arc confident.
Men's golf coach Devon Brouse may have trouble re
placing Walker Cup member Frank Fuhrer, so he is un
sure about his team's potential this season.
"We have five seniors on the team," he said. "The key
for us will be how the seniors bind together and the qual
ity of leadership they provide."
Senior John Spelman, who had the low stroke average
on last season's team, heads the returning players. Mike
West, who won the Orange County Invitational earlier
this month, and David Whitfield, winner of the Durham
Herald-Sun tournament in July, will also return.
Brouse said he expects UNC, N.C. State or Wake
Forest to win the conference championship, with Clem
The women's golf team is returning from its best sea
son, finishing 18th in the country, and has the potential
for improvement. ,
"I think we can finish in the top 10 nationally," Coach
Dorothy Gunnefls said. "The team played with poise and .
confidence last year; we're more experienced now and all .
our players had a good summer."
Seniors Jill Nesbitt and Carla Daniel and juniors Linda '
Mescan and Kathy Reynolds head the returning players. .
"These four led the team last year," Gunnells said: .
. Mescan had the low average on last year's team, while
Nesbitt played best in national competition, Gunnells
said. v . ..
Gunnells said she expected Duke and Wake Forest to
provide the stiffest league competition, which has im
proved recently. The lady golfers play in a region featur
ing Kentucky and Furman as top competition.
The men's cross-country team, coached by Don Lock-.
erbie, features a strong senior trio. Todd McAllister, who
finished 10th in the 1 ,500-meter national championships,
co-captain Mark Whitney, and John Clark are being
counted on to lead the team.
Schedule highlights include the Furman Invitational,
which Lockerbie said was a top-notch testing ground,
and a Sept. 19 meet at Charlottesville, Va., with N.C.
State and Virginia.
. Lockerbie, a 1979 UNC graduate who started work
last week, also coaches the women's cross-country team.
Seniors Nancy Radford, Lindy Appcn and Maria
Daniel are the leading returnees.
"We want to practice more speedwork and more rac
ing," Lockerbie said. "They may have been just running ,
for distance in the past.'' wt"" 'i-i'-i.

Volleyball (above) and women's golf (right) are
among the UNC fall sports that look promising.
Volleyball coach Beth Miller said her team could do
well if two crucial players off last year's team, Adri
Esnard and Cindy Adcock, can be replaced.
Seniors Jenny Watson and Terri Wallace, and juniors
Laura Held and Katie Howard will vie for staring posi
tions. Miller said she expected sophomores Cindy Schmidt
and Mercedes Ballbe and transfer Donna Meyer, who
started at New Mexico, to contribute.
N.C. State, Maryland and Clemson provide the top
ACC competition. . ',
"We have the material," she said. "And if we have a
good mental attitude, we should do all right."
Women's tennis coach Kitty Harrison said she antici
pated a good season.
"We're strong. We'll probably be as good as last year,"
she said. The tennis team won the ACC title and went to
the NCAA regionals.
. Sophomore Kathy Barton, junior Margie Brown, and .
seniors Betsy Heidenberger and Katharine Hogan are the
top four players. Harrison said their positions on the
ladder were interchangeable now.
Duke, Clemson and possibly Virginia will provide top
ACC competition. The ACC tournament will be held
Women's soccer, which finished fourth in the nation
1 last year in only its second season, may be stronger now
due to effective recruiting, coach Anson Dorrance said.
Junior Janet Rayfield,-the leading scorer for the past
two seasons, junior Nancy Clary and sophomore Ann
Klas head the squad. Clary made first-team All-America
last season, while Rayfield and Klas were honorable
Northern Virginia and Dallas are- the richest recruiting
areas for women's soccer, and since few schools in Texas
and Virginia have women's soccer teams (only 100 schools
nationwide compete), UNC has a chance to get their best
Carolina's top regional competition should include
William & Mary, James Madison, Virginia and Virginia
New field hockey coach Karen Shelton said "We ex
pect to make it to the nationals. We have many returning
players. They've looked fine to me."
Junior Kim Knickerbocker, a forward, Mary Stuart
and Lisa Todd are the veteran leaders.
Jamie Knickerbocker, Kim's sister, who was on a
Pennsylvania high school state mile-relay championship
team last year, joins the squad this season.
"There is such potential to be a national champion,"
said Shelton, who replaced Dolly Hunter this season.
"We. can be the Penn State Oast season's national cham
pions) of the South."
