1 V j i .-V f-. " r. . 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. N.C. State 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. Qemson 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 "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. Maryland 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 Duke 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. Georgia Tech 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 IMS and Jackie Blackburn 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 Plott, said. "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," Plott said. 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. Women's Lacrosse will have a Blue White scrimmage at 2 p.m. Feb. 27 on Ehringhaus Field. UNC Women's Rugby team defeated East Carolina 16-8 Saturday in Green ville, N.C An indoor field hockey tournament, featuring 12 area teams, will be held Feb. 27 at 3 p.m. in Woollen Gym. Contact coach Karen Shelton for more information. Gymnasts vault past N.C. State The North Carolina Gymnastics team raised its record to 8-2 with a victory over N.C State Tuesday night in Carmichael Auditorium. 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 lance beam and third in the all-arounds, : while Cates had a fine bar routine and placed eighth in the all-arounds. Sophomore Karen Kaiser captured the all-around title for the sixth time this season with a 34.70 total. She took in- vididual honors on the vault, uneven bars ' and floor exercise. 4 , ' -, Teammate Mickie Robinson won the balance beam event and finished fifth all- j around. ; The Tar Heels will travel to East Ten- : nessee State for their final regular season j meet on March 6.
