After compiling a 144-6 high school
wrestling record, Jon Cardi came to
North Carolina last year because of the
school's atmosphere, ending one of the
nation's top recruiting battles of 1983.
But after being accustomed to winning
for four years, the Burnt. Hills, N.Y.
native found at UNC what high school
wrestling, at least for him, had lacked
the challenge of competition.
Wrestling in the 145- and 155-pound
divisions in high school, Cardi, who
wrestles at 150 at UNC, saw little com
petition during his junior and senior
"Around my junior year I was hurting
for competition," Cardi said. "People
were even avoiding me."
Those are strong words for a freshman.
But Cardi's credentials back them up, as
potential abounds from the 5-foot-9,'
Cardi was the New York State cham
pion at 145 his sophomore year. He
achieved an incredible feat as a junior
and senior by winning the state cham
pionship at both 145 and 155 pounds.
After his senior year, Cardi was named to
the Ail-American teams of three major
But the high school-to-college transi
tion, while a welcome one, has had its dif
ficulties. "The intensity level in college is 100
percent different," Cardi said. "The
transition is definitely (rough), and I'm
trying to do well in academics too."

"We did approximately how I expected
us to," coach Ron Miller said. "Coming
off the long road trip (to Chicago last
weekend) and not having practiced on
Monday and Tuesday, I knew we'd be a
little off in the early rounds.
"With our lack of practice and State's
intensity, I anticipated that we'd have
trouble at first. I also had confidence that
we'd come back to win it."

Freshman wrestler Jon Cardi, whose record was 144-6 in high school,
is finding it tougher to win as'a collegian.
Coach Bill Lam said that it takes "an
aspect of dedication and responsibility
for your time" to adapt to the college
Cardi had to face some of the top
wrestlers in the nation at the start of the
season, and he wasn't used to losing,"
Lam said about Cardi, who has also been
hampered by a shoulder injury.
However, Cardi, who is 9-7-1 at UNC,
has reacted positively to the challenges.
"I've been coming around lately," he said.
"I have my own sense (of comeptition)."
Lam noticed Cardi's improvement
after the Christmas break. "He found
out how he did in school, and was. more
relaxed," he said. "He seems to have
things straight in his head. I think that
he'll be in contention in the ACC before
the year is over."
Cardi chose to attend " UNC over
Nebraska and Iowa St., Big 8 schools
with superb wrestling programs.
"This school has more personality than
the other schools," said Cardi. "I liked
the campus a lot, and Coach Lam is a ter

The men's epee provided a perfect ex

Heels dropped four of the first six bouts,
before recovering to end up ahead, 5-4,
on the final tally.
"They're dangerous," Miller said of1
State's. epee squads "They 'havel a .dif-'

Tar Heels) weren't fencing very well and
State was, they made an excellent come

If you wanted to see an artistic perfor
mance perhaps the UNC women were the
ones to watch. Five different fencers went
undefeated and UNC clinched its victory
early in the match by winning nine of the
first 10 bouts.

"But I'll get a lot more out of ft."
Though an education is foremost, Car
di knows that he is also here to produce
on the' mats. He gained excellent ex
perience this summer with . the U.S.
Junior team in Norway.
Lam and Cardi agree that one of the
team's primary goals will be to win the
ACC championship. The seniors and
team captains Bob Shriner, Bill Gaff
ney, Wes Hallman, Joel Goodwin, Tim
Plott, and Tom Gorry will try, along
with the rest of the Tar Heels, to earn
their first ACC Championship rings.
And before Jon Cardi's college career
is over, he hopes to help put North
Carolina in the national spotlight.

grow," he said. "If everyone starts
believing in themselves, we will surprise

N.C. State held the ACC's leading
scorer, UNC center Tresa Brown, to two
second-half points Tuesday nights But the
Tar Heels came from behind to win,
"Their second-half defense on me
was a box and one (one State defender
guarding Brown and the other four
players in a zone)," Brown said. "Of
course that makes it harder for me to get
"(But) most importantly, it opened up
the offense for the rest of the team."
UNC guards Pam Leake and Pam
Hammond made the most of their new
found offensive opportunities as Jennifer
Alley's team remained unbeaten in the
ACC in women's basketball.
"Our guards held their composure
through everything and did a super job -running
the club oh the floor," Brown
said. . '
But while it was the backcourt that
combined to defeat State, it was Brown
whose play carried the Tar Heels to a 13-2
record. The senior ' from Raleigh is
averaging close to 23 points and 10 re
bounds per game, leading the ACC in
both categories. Her shooting statistics
are impressive: 60 percent from the field
and better than 80 percent from the line.
She's being hailed as a bona fide Ail
"I have all the capabilities of being an
All-American this year," Brown said. "If
I keep being consistent at what I'm doing
I should be an All-American by the end
of this year." ,
Consistency has been Brown's keynote
this season. Her scoring and rebounding
totals have varied little game to game,
save two extraordinary performances
recently against Fairleigh Dickinson and
Brown rewrote the UNC single-game
record book in each of those victories, ,
scoring 38 in the former game and 41 in ?
Brown said she felt pressure long
' before the current season began.
I had the most pressure over this sum- '
mer," Brown said. "I realized I was the
only big girl left from the three girls inside
(after the departure of Kathy Crawford
and Henrietta Walls).

she said with a laugh. -
"The most important thing that we teach
our children is that God loves them, and that
they are unique and special because he made
them that way," she said. "We also encourage
them to respect each others' differences and to
be willing to share and to get along."
