Lam says wrestlers
are better than ranking
By DAVID WELLS
and BOB YOUNG
The North Carolina' wrestling team has
compiled a 3-2 record to date this season
and is ranked No. 16 nationally. But ac
cording to Coach Bill Lam, his team's
performance this season cannot be in
dicated by numbers
"(Our record) is part of the reason
we're not rated higher, but the two teams
we lost to are in the top five," he said. "1
think we're going to continue to move
The Tar Heels lost two key wrestlers
just before the season started: Matt
King, who is out of action with bruised
kidneys, and Pete Mankowich, who quit
school. The loss of the two wrestlers,
King in the 142-pound division and
Mankawich at 134, left a gaping hole that
UNC could not quite fill.
"The kids have done a good job mak
ing adjustments," Lam said, despite early
season losses to Iowa State and Wiscon
sin,, teams which are nationally ranked
No. 5 and No. 3 respectively. Iowa State
defeated UNC by seven points, and Wis
consin finished only two points ahead of
the Tar Heels.
"We didn't have time to make adjust
ments before the first two matches,"
Senior Tim Plott has moved down a
weight division and wrestles at 142, while
freshman Jon Cardi has stepped in at 150.
Lam feels that his squad is vulnerable,
however, at the 134-pound spot.
Since the Big 8 and the Big 10 are the
winningest conferences, Lam said, "There
were times when we would not schedule
teams like that. They were close matches
and I think that we're coming along real
The Tar Heels have received excellent
performances from Chip McArdle, at 1 18
pounds, and Bill Gaffney, at 167. McAr
dle and Gaffney are each ranked No. 6 in
the nation in their respective divisions.
Furthermore, John Aumiller at 126
pounds and Bob shriner at 190 pounds
have made significant 'contributions.
"1 feel that (Shriner) will be nationally
ranked in a week or two," Lam said.
He said that UNC will face some of its
toughest competition in the ACC, which is
right behind the Big 8 and Big 10 in
cumulative wins within the conference
N.C. State is ranked No. 10 in the nation,
while Clemson and Virginia should boast
"We're looking forward to starting
ACC competition," Lam said.
UNC will try to win its first ACC title
in four years, a primary goal of the
team's six seniors.
"We would also like to place six kids in
the (NCAA) finals and finish in the top
ten," Lam said.
UNC will face a rigorous test this
weekend in the Virginia Dual Tourna
ment, which involves Missouri, Wiscon
sin, and LSU-all Top 10 programs. ACC
action will open for the Tar Heels at
home against Duke on Jan. 27. '

This month will tell a lot about the Tar
Heels' ability to win against top competi
tion. Both the men and women will race,
against ACC opponents Virginia and
Clemson, and the women will face five of
the top teams in the country this weekend
in Austin, Texas.
The women will race against No. 3
Southern California, No. 4 Texas,
seventh-ranked Southern Illinois, eighth
ranked Auburn and Kansas. But Com

rankings until later in the season.
"We use these meets as well as duel
meets as stepping stones to conference
and national success," Comfort said.
Comfort was glad the Christmas break
came when it did since it gave Tim Shea, a
freshman from Wilmington, Del., , a
chance to overcome a bout with
mononucleosis. Comfort said Shea's
return to full strength wil have a tremen
dous impact on the team.
The men's next race will be at East
