A distinctly Northern flavor
Take a walk down Old Mason Farm Road
some afternoon and look at the license plates on
the cars parked across from the lacrosse practice
field. Maryland. New York. Connecticut. New
North Carolina might be "First in Freedom,"
but it's last in this lot.
Thirty-two of the 43 players on the UNC
lacrosse team come from either New York or
Maryland, and only four players list hometowns
south of the latter. Three are from Virginia. On
ly one, freshman Chris Estes, is from North
Ironically, the Rocky Mount native wasn't in
troduced to lacrosse until he left the state. Estes
had never played the game before attending the
Loomis Chaffee School, a prep school in Wind
"There was just no place to play," he said.
Things have changed since Estes was a kid
throwing a football with his friends. There are
now places to play pre-collegiate lacrosse in
North Carolina. But not many especially out
side the local area.
Chapel Hill High is the only school, public or
private, fielding a varsity lacrosse team in North
Carolina. The Tigers have to look to Virginia
and Maryland for competition. Consider the
161 public high school teams and 12,980 boys
the state of New York put on the field last year,
and draw your own conclusions.
. "I think it can catch on," Estes said. "But it
will definitely take a while, because a lot of the
Southern schools are slow at picking it up."
Ail-American defenseman Randy Cox, of
Holbrook, N.Y., said he had no doubts about
the sport's permanence in Chapel Hill athletic
culture. But he was less certain of its chances for
popularity throughout the state, much less
across the South.
"They're so big on football and basketball,"
the UNC senior said. "There's no room for
lacrosse. (The kids have) got to take a break
UNC has had somewhat of an oasis effect on
lacrosse within North Carolina. The game has
grown tremendously in the Chapel Hill com
munity, but it has yet to make inroads elsewhere
in the state. The same situation exists in
Virginia, where all three of the state's public
high school teams are in Charlottesville. UVa.,
like UNC, seems to foster a tremendous amount
of interest in the local community, with the ex
citement decreasing in direct proportion to the
UNC coach Willie Scroggs, a native of
Baltimore and former assistant at Johns
Hopkins, said the growth of pre-collegiate
lacrosse in Chapel Hill since he arrived in 1978
had amazed him.
"I would have said when I first came here it
could never happen," he said.
"We haven't sat there and said we're going to
make the community of Chapel Hill play
lacrosse, but they sure are doing it."
What Scroggs has done has been to donate
time, equipment and his players to the Chapel
Hill Parks and Recreation lacrosse program,
which runs year round. Some of the fruits of
this labor will be evident in late April, when a
club team from Phillips Junior High School
hosts an eight-team tournament, with teams
traveling down from Virginia and Maryland to
Scroggs also noted signs of progress elsewhere
in the state. He said that the superintendent of
schools in Wake County was talking about
starting a league in that district, and that a
group of eight or nine N.C. private schools were
past the talking stage and had already set up an
"Lacrosse fills a very unique need in kids,"
Scroggs said. "It's not only a wonderful partici
pant sport, but it's a wonderful spectator sport,
as well. Lacrosse is a natural."
Except in the South.
N.C. State dropped its program in 1982, leav
ing UNC, Virginia and Maryland as the only
ACC schools with varsity teams. This meant
UNC had the NCAA's only first-rate lacrosse
program below the 37th parallel.
As a result, Scroggs hasn't had much of a
problem recruiting. If his 51-12 record and two
national championships can't sell itself, the
amenities of Chapel Hill and Southern living
provide sufficient added incentive.
"When I left New York on my recruiting trip
it was 20 degrees," Cox said. "When I got here
people were in shorts. It was 60 degrees. To get
off the plane and have it change like that I
said 'Hey, let's go.' "
Which is what most every other UNC lacrosse
player said before trading in his "yuse guys" for
"y'all" and stocking up on the Coppertone.
Tennis teams win, lose
against Glemson netters
By SCOTT FOWLER
The UNC women's tennis team upset the 12th-ranked Clem
son Tigers 5-4 in a crucial ACC match Saturday at the UNC
The odds against UNC securing its 10th consecutive win
seemed long, for Clemson boasted a 7-1 all-time record against
the Tar Heels and had won this fall's confrontation 6-3, facing
essentially the same Tar Heel lineup. But UNC split the singles
with the Tigers and then took two of the three doubles for the
Stephanie Rauch, the Tar Heels No. 5 seed, was instrumental
in the victory, winning her singles match and then combining
with Kathy Barton for the decisive doubles win.
Xown 4-5 in the first set of her singles match, Rauch reeled
off four straight games to win that set 7-5 and take a 1-0 lead in
the second. Her opponent, Jane Neville, saved three match
points at 5-3 and forced the second set into a tiebreaker.
Neville led the tiebreaker 4-2 before Rauch made a strategy
change. "I felt like I was playing not to lose," Rauch said. "So I
started playing to win instead. I started trying to do something
with the ball and to become more aggressive."
Rauch's change in tactics produced immediate results, as she
won five straight points to clinch the match. But work still re
mained. The overall team score was tied at 3-3 after singles play.
And after Clemson won the No. 1 doubles match in straight sets
and UNC easily took the No. 3 doubles, Rauch and teammate
Kathy Barton found themselves involved in the decisive final
match of the day.
The UNC duo lost the first set 6-4. But Barton ignited a rally
that propelled them to a 4-6, 6-2, 6-2 victory and cinched UNC's
biggest win of the season.
The men's ACC regular season tennis title may have been
decided prematurely Saturday as ninth-ranked Clemson
defeated the Tar Heels, 5-4, on the Hinton James Courts.
UNC won in singles only at No. 2, where Wayne Hearn
downed Rick Rudeen, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 and at No. 6, where Mark
DeMattheis defeated Brandon Walters 6-2, 2-6, 7-6.
Following DeMattheis' victory, UNC coach Allen Morris said
the Tar Heels were "hanging by a thread."
"It would almost be impossible to take three doubles matches
from a team as good as Clemson," Morris said.
The impossible almost happened. UNC's No. 1 doubles team
'of Chambers and Hearn quickly disposed of Clemson's Krantz
Cooper team 6-1,6-3. The No. 2 doubles match between the Tar
Heels' DeMattheis-Erskine team and Clemson's Nido-Walters
team was close, but DeMattheis and Erskine won 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.
And in the match that gave the Tigers the victory, Clemson's
Rudeen and Frooman defeated the Sarner-Rob Bach team, 5-7,
