Women 's Cross-Country
Dy KATIIY NORCROSS
What differentiates a runner and a
competitor? This year North Carolina re
cruited four of the top 25 women distance
runners in the nation, and each has the
desire and the ability to compete.
Without this desire, this determination
to compete and to win, the runner and
the competitor might otherwise appear
alike. Each may put in the same mileage
the same amount of strain, and the
runner may be satisfied with this. The
competitor will not be satisfied until she is
tested and excels. "
The four UNC recruits come from four
different states. Madlyn Morreale, from
Glen Ellyn, HI., began competing on the
junior high track team where she not only
ran, but also participated in field events.
It was only in high school, when she
began running with the men's team, that
she became a serious runner. This dedi
cation led her to eighth place in the Kin
ney National Championships.
Holly Murray, from Norristown,
Perm., began her career in the eighth
grade "for something to do." In ninth
grade, she joined the Ambler Olympic
Club and became serious about running.
"The coach was good, and he inspired
me," Murray said. "I started running all
year 'round, and T started improving."
Improving is an understatement; ex
celling would be more accurate.
In her senior year, she placed second in
the National Junior Olympic Champion
ships of Cross Country; because of this,
many consider her to be the No. 2
women's cross country runner in the U.S.
Valerie Roback, from Blacksburg, Va.,
lives closer to UNC than any of the other
top recruits. Like Murray, she began run
ning to have something to do. She also
played basketball. The switch from bas
ketball to ninning in the winter of her
freshman year, proved worthwhile; she
placed 25th in the Kinney Nationals.
Laura Whitney, sister of last year's
captain of the men's cross country team,
is from Stony Brook, N.Y.
"I began running track in the seventh
grade because both my brothers did,"
Whitney said. "I liked doing what they
She did it well. A four-time New York
state champion, she also finished 13th in
the Kinney Nationals.
"I went after those four because I feel
they have four good years in college,"
cross country coach Don Lockerbie said.
"Often the high school superstars are not
the college superstars, but these girls fit
the mold to be at Carolina."
The decision to attend North Carolina
was a difficult one because, as Lockerbie
said, "each girl was highly recruited by
excellent universities who offered ex
cellent scholarships. We fought hard for
them; UNC can meet all its promises."
"It's far, but I knew more about
Carolina its running and academics. I
couldn't pass it by," Whitney said.
"It took a long time to decide to come
here, but I have no regrets and I'm happy
to. be here. Everything's going my way."

... four freshmen compete on their home turf against Maryland, Wake, Tennessee, Villanova
like any freshman, the four recruits
. have had to adjust, like any athlete, their
transition has made demands that other
freshmen do not face. Aside from regular
classes, the women practice from 3:30
p.m. to 6 p.m. every day and sometimes
have morning workouts. The little time
that remains is occupied with homework
and the necessary sleep.
"I had to budget my time in high
school, and this helped to prepare me for
the self-discipline I need here," Murray
said. "I like the team and the coach. The
workouts are more intense; the biggest
change is a lot more distance at a lot
Roback agreed that running on the col
lege level is different, and that the work
outs are a lot more intense.
"I'll adjust to it," Roback said.
"Coach Lockerbie has taken it into ac
count that we're freshmen."
Because everything is so new to fresh
men, it is hard to set specific goals. Mor
reale finished second in UNC's 31-26 loss
to N.C. State Saturday, and it bolstered
"Until Saturday I didn't know where I
stood collegiately. I was caught between
being super enthusiastic and putting
things in perspective."
This unknown makes defining goals
difficult for .Whitney, and ;Roback '' as
"I have some personal goals like to
do the workouts the best I can," Whitney
"It's hard to say right now, but I
would like the team to do well in the Na
tionals. Here there is so much more team
effort," Roback said.

exceptional athletes often ran alone in

front, these first few weeks have been a
period of adjustment. Now they , are
united with other superlative runners by
the common goal of helping their team to
"Right now my goal is to make it to the
National Championships in November
either with the team or individually,"
The team has already lost to State this
year by just five points, narrowing last
year's margin of 19 points. Because each
competes with individual goals in mind,
the reactions to the race varied.
Whitney, who placed 11th with a time
of 19:38 was not pleased with her per
formance. "Next week will be better,"
"I'm going to try to keep improving,"
Roback said in regard to her 14th place
finish. Many people would be pleased
with these finishes because of the caliber
of the other runners, but these two refuse
"I felt really good. I beat Lynn Strauss
(a previous competitor) and I've never
beaten her before; it was neat to see Joan
and Madlyn up there. I was pleased and
surprised," said Murray, who finished
5th at 17:57.
"They wanted me to get the girl ahead,
and I. wanted to stay in front of the pack
of four behind."., v.w. .ir, ud-

Morreale finished second overall with a
time of 17:31.
"It was neat because I've been won
dering where I stood, and where the other
girls have gone. Doing well makes the
transition that much smoother." Mor
reale had previously raced Connie Jo
Robinson (last week's winner from State)
in the Kinney Championships where she
was 30 seconds behind her. This time, it
was only seven seconds.
The freshmen have adjusted well and
already have started to contribute to the
team. This Saturday should be an exciting
race against Maryland and No. 7 ranked
"Valerie and Holly were both recruited
by Maryland; so they will run well,"
The race will be run on Finley Golf
Course at 11 a.m. This is the only home
meet for the women.
A fine line separates the joggers from
the runners, but an even more delicate
line separates runners from competitive,
racers. These four freshmen have the
essential but undefinable quality that
makes them endure the pain which must
be endured to win.
"Many schools dubbed us as having
one of the finest recruiting years ever; the
girls justified it last weekend," Lockerbie
said. ''The team is relying on these' fresh-
men girls." :

"We're pleased that at this point in the
season we're still undefeated," head
coach Anson Dorrance said. "And we're
pleased that at this point in the season we
don't have a lot of injuries."
North Carolina Wesleyan is currently
ranked 9th in the South in Division III,
and has been ranked nationally since the
beginning of the season, but the Tar
Heels should have something else to be
pleased about after Saturday.
"Their personnel won't be as strong as
ours," Dorrance said.
