Thursday, February 25, 1982The Daily Tar Heel7
Wrestlers ready for tournament
By S.L. PRICE
Assistant Sport Kdilor
This weekend's Atlantic Coast Conference wrestling tour
nament at Carmichael Auditorium should end with either the
Tar Heels or N.C. State walking away with the championship.
Both have dominated the ACC all season long. UNC's only
conference losses were to the Wolfpack in a pair of nailbiters,
21-13 in Raleigh, 22-17 at home.
Coach Bill Lam's squad features the best line-up seen in
Chapel Hill in years. '
Senior tri-captains Bob Monaghan, Dave Cooke and CD.
Mock form the backbone of Carolina's attack, and all three
are favorites to win in their weight categories.
Monaghan, at 118 lbs., goes into the tourney sporting a
27-4 record, and he's coming off a 17-8 victory over State
All-America Chris Wentz. Monaghan dropped 20 pounds to
compete in the .1 18-lb. class, but he doesn't show it. He has
the strength, endurance and ability to pour it on in the last
minute, and he does so consistently.
In the 126-lb. class, Cooke enters the season stretch with
last year's ACC crown and a second-place finish at the
NCAAs behind him.
CD. Mock, at 134 lbs., has savvy, endurance and a repu
tation. Ranked No. 2 nationally, he is undefeated with a 26-0
record. Look for him to dominate.
At 142 lbs., it's a tossup. Lam will either go with freshman
Pete Mankowich or Tim Plott. Both are extremely tough,
and Mankowich can come from behind and score a lot of
points in a hurry.
Mike Elinsky is a question mark. At 150 lbs., this senior
transfer from Auburn has had an up-and-down season, with
a string of wins at the outset, and then losses at Navy and
State. Lam said Elinsky can either win it all or not qualify
this weekend. But Elinsky has wrestled well of late, and he
doesn't surrender easily.
Bill Gaffney's weak spot is the first period, when he is on
his feet. But when it comes to escapes or reversals in the
down position, Gaffney (158 lbs) can move quickly and ef
fectively. All-America Jan Michaels is also favored to take top
honors. The two-time ACC champ calls himself a tourna
ment wrestler, and he consistently proves it. He has a slight
tendency towards gearing himself for only the big matches,
but that should work to his favor this weekend.
Lam also terms 177-lb. Robert Shriner as capable of grab
bing first or not qualifying at all. Look for him to attempt an
over-the-shoulder body slam sometimes it works, some
times it doesn't. But he's got the strength to pull it off.
At 190 lbs. and heavyweight, Steve Gibble and Tommy
Gorry will wrestle for Carolina. Both can score when least
expected, and Gorry, who has not beaten an ACC opponent
this year, makes up for what he lacks in talent with gutsy enthusiasm.
Running with the Pack this season are a trio of defending
conference champs 126-lb. Chris Wentz is Cooke's main
conference competition, 190-lb! Jerry Rodriguez is favored
to repeat, and 400-lb. Tab Thacker does not move much,
but his weight gives him an obvious advantage. Look also for
150-lb. Frank Castrignano, who has beaten and tied Elinsky
this year, and Chris Mondragon, 17-3-2 at 158 lbs.
The Tigers were expected to threaten the Tar Heel Wolf
pack stranglehold on the ACC this season, but began to fade
and are now capable of taking two to three weight classes,
tops. Especially strong in the upper weights, Qemson is led
by 142-lb. All-America Steve Babyak; Mike Bell, 38-1 at 150
lbs., and 158-lb. Chris Bojanovic.
"Virginia's not bad," Lam said prior to the Carolina
Virginia clash this year. "But I don't think they can go vith
us unless we're flat." The Wahoos posted a 6-8 and 1-4
record this year, but there are a few bright spots: Buddy Ken
will attempt to repeat as ACC champ at the wide-open 142,
and Tim Wagner, an ACC titlist at 150, will give Mike Elin
sky his toughest challenge. At 1 18, Jim Pagano finished with
a 24-4 record and could be a surprise.
Mark Dugan at 134 lbs. could cause trouble for Mock, but
the only other grappler to watch is 177-lb. Dan-Harvey, who
has the potential to grab the titled
The Heels manhandled the Blue Devils 35-16 on Jan. 26,
and nothing has changed. Their top spoiler could be 134-lb.
Jake Cecere, with a 15-3-1 record. John Strong, at 177 lbs.,
works well in the down position, can move on his feet, and
can pour on a lot of points in a pinch.
v. -; ' . . '
Top wrestler is 126-lb. Tom Krauser with a 17-4 record. As
a team, the Yellowjackets are 4-8, 0-3. Nothing much to
worry about here.
Times for the matches: 1 1 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday
for the first round and semi-final matches; noon, 2 and 3
p.m. on Sunday for consolation and championship finals.
"Team balance is very important," Lam said. "It will
basically be a two-team race, with us and State and all the
others fighting for third.
"We've been going with two-a-days and the kids have a
good attitude. Are we ready mentally? I think we are. But it's
going to be real tight, real close."
accjuetball Club sponsors new event
The popularity of racquetball has
soared in recent years. And like the sport
it represents, the UNC Racquetball Club
has also grown considerably in its two
years at the University.
"We have approximately 50 members
now," Pete Vrooman, club president,
said. "You can expect between 20 and 30
players at practices."
While the club does compete against
other collegiate racquetball teams, the
primary objective of the UNC club is to
build talent in the club.
"Racquetball is an easy game to pick
up," Vrooman said. "But you have to
realize it's a hard game to improve in. It's .
a challenge to improve. We (the club) try
to give everyone competitive play."
Until January, club members did not
have much opportunity to improve their
game, using what few courts were avail
able in Woollen Gym. The addition of 15
racquetball courts in Fetzer Gym has
helped increase the size and talent of the
club, last year's club president, Eric
"One of my goals as president was to
build talent on the club," Plott said. "I
felt I did that. The Fetzer courts helped.
"We usually don't fare too well in
tournaments. This year I think we'll be
really strong. We're attracting good
players from graduate schools."
For the past eight months, Plott has
been preparing a new racquetball tourna
ment, one of the largest in the area. The
Eastern Seaboard Racquetball Invita
tional, which he hopes will become an an
nual event, is scheduled for April 16-18.
' 'The main purpose of the tournament
is to create enthusiasm for racquetball,"
TARHEEL FOOTNOTES: All entries
for the Eastern Seaboard Racquetball In
vitational must be sent to Plott by March
26, along with a $10 entry fee.

UNC scored 135,5 points to State's
128.5, but just as important as the win,
the meet marked the final home appear
ance for senior co-captains Diana Cates
and Tiffany Terranova.
"They (Cates and Terranova) have
played an important role this year be
cause of having a new coach," first-year
coach Derek Galvin said. "Having the
stability Diana and Tiffany provided has
helped me a lot. They kept me in touch
with the team. Both Diana and Tiffany
had a good meet (against State). "
Terranova finished second on the ba
