divisions, fraternity, residence hall, graduateindependent and women's, for an
outstanding job in organizing hisher unit and increasing participation among

and dual competitors in over 80 activities throughout the year.

What do you get when you cross a genetics graduate student with a water basketball
supervisor. . .why, John Glass of course.
Glass, the son of Mr. and Mrs. S.W. Glass Jr. of Greensboro, is both of the above, and he is
also the 1982 GraduateIndependent IM Manager of the Year.
The fact that Glass single-handedly organized this year's Co-rec water basketball league,
even putting the schedule and rules on a computer program, nor that he helps run the weekly
JM hash fun runs, got him this award. Those only get brownie points. The real reason Glass is'
recognized this year is his ability to instigate and organize a 60 percent participation within
his Bacteriology department.
The facts tell it all. His Bacteriology "Samoa Blue" unit entered 17 teams this year, and all
the major summer 1981 sports, won summer innertube water polo, fall gradind racquetball
and the first annual Co-rec Super Teams in October. That 60 percent included 52 different
people. A Law Mudshark basketball team can't be claimed, but Samoa's over-all performance
and participation are outstanding.
Glass' Background includes high school at Greensboro Grimsley High, (track and cross
country), '77 BA at UNC in ChemistryBiology, two-year stint as Avery's IM Manager, three
year IM officiating career, including admission into the Officials Association, and UNC Quiz
Bowl Championship Team in 77.
After working for several years in UNC's Bacteriology and Immunology Dept., Glass re
turned to school this fall to work on his Master's degree in genetics.
' Glass calls IM participation one of the best attributes of Carolina life. "I manage to get
both the high of sports and the chance to share a cherished fellowship," he said. -
The fraternity IM Manager of the Year is Jeff Sargeant of Chi Phi.
Sargeant, a junior ChemEcon major from Kinston, is the son of Dr. and Mrs. Peter
Sargeant. ' :
This 1979 Kinston High graduate is very unique in IM's. It's not just that he is one of the
most talented basketball players in North Carolina Intramurals, nor is it that he is the
manager of the second-ranked frat in IM's, and not even that he quarterbacked his Chi Phi
team to the frat and all campus tag football titles. . ' " - h ' " - ;
- ' No, thisr man is unique because he is not only talented and successful, but also has con-
sistently displayed one of the finest attitudes in the program, a trait that influences both
team mates and competitors in play, and no doubt spreads to his fraternity brothers as well.
Sargeant has a list of sport superlatives that would fill any yearbook, including all tourna
ment in the Kinston Holiday Basketball Classic for a very talented Kinston Viking team,
member for two, starter for one in UNC's JV Basketball program, MVP for UNC's Chi Phi
Championship team in the '82 Chi Phi Southeastern Basketball tourney, member of the '82
number-one ranked co-rec basketball squad and runner-up in the '82 one-on-one basketball
Sargeant, also the Historian for Chi Phi, has entered some 50 teams this year sharing the
manager job with UNC Co-supervisor of Officials Billy Sutton and has played all the major IM
sports during his three years here, totalling some 200 games. The reason, he says, is his love
One can compete hard, win and finish second, too, and show class all the way through

It Just had to go to someone in Teague.
How could you deny the Residence Hall IM Manager of the Year to anyone but a manager
from the dorm that has claimed 10 of the fast 12 IM residence hall point championships. For
the first dozen, Teague wasn't split into A and B as it is now, but splitting them didn't seem to
stop the Mamas.
Ross Powell, junior accounting major from Rose Hill, is the manager of Teague A, once
again the number one ranked dorm in UNC intramurals.'His colleague, Steve Potter of Teague
B, would have to be a close second, as his unit is, but to the victor goes the spoils.
Powell, thd son of Dr. Hugh M. and Mrs. Virginia H. Powell, was graduated in 1979 froni
Wallace-Rose Hill High with a basket full of school awards and a couple of golf letters in his
pocket. Three years later, he can claim about 27 IM activities to his credit, including this fan's
Teague A "Hairless Horsemen" residence hall championship football team.
The typically cocky Teaguer admits loving IM's and Teague, not necessarily in that order.
"By living in Teague and winning IM's, I have joined an elite group of UNC Students who
have dominated UNC IM's." The reason Teague wins, he says, is the ability to take the goods
and the averages and form a working team. "Often athletes that are not super can work to
gether and maybe pull an upset or two in the playoffs over teams with more talent. That's the
So be it, and welcome back Teague.
Phi Mu's Linka Schiltz is the only repeater in this semester's IM Athletes of the Month, Tiav-:
ing been one of the four recognized for January.
Schiltz, a junior Physical Education major, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Schiltz
of Wrightsville Beach. v..
Having been a leader in Aycock dorm's IM program, and thus jointly responsible for its suc
cess, Schiltz is a leader in an area where leading is tough. Women's participation in IM's is
generally low, even lower for greek women. Schiltz' determined and enthusiastip style has in
creased participation with Phi Mu's IM's, and should help that sorority in its push for the ini
tial sorority point championship. "
Schiltz, a Wilmington Hoggard High graduate, has just about played it all in IM's, refereed
volleyball, played on UNC's Women's Lacrosse Club, volunteered at the Burn Center and
Physical TherapySports Medicine clinic and coached little league girls softball and basket
ball. Under her leadership, Phi Mu has been one of the most active sororities in IM's. She has
participated in both Sport Days, football, track, basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer and
"Some women don't realize what IM participation has to offer," she said. "I'm glad my
sorority members feel differently."
