Eric Str eater seems like the typical
freshman athlete. He's excited about the

other sports besides football.
Streater has had his share of ups and
downs, of joy and tragedy. So why is Eric
Streater not just any freshman athlete?
He is part of a legacy chapter three in
the story of a trio of outstanding athletes
linked by a sibling bond.
First there was the eldest brother,
James, 23, who finished a four-year career
at Tennessee in 1980 before moving on to
professional football as a quarterback in
the Canadian Football League.
One year behind James was Steve, an
All-Conference punter and safety, whose
years at Carolina also prepared him for
greater things. If hot for a tragic accident
in 1981, Steve would also be a pro.
Now it's Eric's turn. At 5-feet-ll-inches
tall, 143 pounds, Streater is not exactly one
of the Tar Heels' biggest men. In fact, he's

For the first time in four years the UNC volleyball team
defeated'N.C. State in Raleigh in a regular season game, and
Carolina did it with a 3-1 victory.
The first game demonstrated die strong rivalry between the two
schools as the score remained, close throughout. UNC finally
came out on top 15-12. Donna Meier contributed five kills to the
team's total of 17, with Laura Held and Kim Rose slamming four
Yet State got revenge in the second game by cruising to a 7-0
lead, and an eventual 15-3 blowout.
"We lost our concentration," UNC Coach Beth Miller said.
"It was a combination of mental errors and physical errors."
The next two games showed a complete reversal as Sandy
Schmidt had four spikes and Rose, Schmidt and Linda Kantz ac
ed one serve each for a 15-4 win in the third contest. Meier and
Held chipped in nine slams in the fourth game for a 15-7 defeat
and the match. -
v "The last two games we played better and played better
together," said Miller. "We had the mental edge in both games,
and used more of a variety of shots."
Senior Katie Howard, who was injured with a sprained ankle in
Friday's match against Clemson, saw limited action Tuesday,
but should be at full strength this weekend for the Lamar Tour
nament in Beaumont, Texas, Miller said.
The 12-team tournament is divided into two six-team pools.
Carolina is pitted against 18th-ranked New Mexico in the first
round Friday morning, and plays a total of five games Friday and
early Saturday morning. The top four teams in each pool will then
go into single elimination play ranked according to how well they
have played in their pool.
Although UNC has never competed against any of the tourna
ment's teams, Miller expects Louisiana State, New Mexico State,
and Lamar to be strong opponents.
"In Texas," -she said, "a lot of the high school teams are as
good as many college teams."
