Kaplan sets records
By BETH VELLIQUETTE
As UNC gymnast Stacy Kaplan
watched the U.S. women's Olympic
team last summer, she couldn't help but
wonder, "What if?"
"It hurt because (I knew) I had a
chance of maybe becoming as good as
they were," Kaplan says..
When Kaplan was 14, she retired
from gymnastics. The pressures of
competition on the national level and
the four hours spent commuting to and
from practice five days a week had taken
the joy out of gymnastics.
Her team was ranked sixth in the
country, and in 1981 Kaplan fininshed
I4th in the USA championships. Mary
Lou Retton, gold medal winner in the
1984 Olympics, finished 13th in that
"All the people that were in the
Olympics were the ones I started out
competing with," Kaplan said. "At 14
I stopped, and obviously, they kept
Kaplan says quitting was a big
decision. "I knew if I wanted to go for
the chance that I might become one of
the six or seven on the Olympic team,
I would have to give up my whole life.
"I decided not to, and I have to say
that I haven't really had any regrets
because I was able to concentrate on
school, have a social life and do a lot
of things besides gymnastics, so I ended
up with the best of both worlds," she
Said UNC gymnastics coach Derik
Galvin: "(Kaplan's) limiting factors
were not her desire and certainly not
her talent, but just the logistics of
continuing to train.
"I think Stacy had the ability to

Kaplan's retirement was short-iived,
but when she returned to gymnastics,
it was as a member of her high school
team. Emphasis was on the team effort,
and Kaplan began to enjoy gymnastics
In her junior and senior years at the
New York state high school meet,
Kaplan won all four individual events
as well as the all-around championship.
Kaplan says she chose to attend UNC
because it has both a growing gymnas
tics program and a strong academic
Galvin says that Kaplan will play a
major role in the UNC program over
the next four years.
In her first meet at UNC, the 4-1 1
Kaplan set two new individual school
records, and she says she can do even
better in the future.
"She's capable of more than she did
at the last meet," Galvin said. "There
were a few skills that I did not let her
do because of a back injury. One is her
double back flip on the floor, which
really separates her from everybody
"I don't know if you've seen that
Wheaties commercial with Mary Lou
Retton where they're talking about how
she does a double back like the big boys
do. Well, Stacy can do one too."
Although Kaplan devotes about 20
hours a week to gymnastics practice and
conditioning, she says her first priority
is getting an education.

The N.C. State Wolfpack capitalized on its strength
in the heavier divisions and on UNC injuries to eke
out a 19-18 win in Carmichael Auditorium Saturday.
The loss brings North Carolina's record to 8-6 while
the 14th-ranked Wolfpack climbs to 1-5.
The Tar Heels started off in usual fashion as
Alpalacio won the opening match. The sophomore
1 1 8-pounder was behind, 8-5, at the end of the second
period, but took only 10 seconds in the final period
to pin State's Jim Best.
Chip McArdle increased North Carolina's lead with
a 6-3 decision over Kurt Wentz in the 126-pound
division. UNC held a 9-0 lead in team scoring.
At 134, the Wolfpack took advantage of UNC
injuries to regulars John Aumiller and Gene Staulters
as State's Bill Hershey scored an 11-3 victory over
Bill Christie. Because the victory was by eight points
instead of seven or less, State picked up four points
instead jof the ual three. This-was a? development :
that played a huge factor in the outcome of the match.

lose to Wolfpack in final match
a 9-2 decision at 142.
UNC freshman Rob Koll held on to a narrow 3
1 lead going into the final period and scored a near
fall in the final seconds to beat State's Scott Turner
in the 150-pound division. In a development typical
of many of the matches, both wrestlers were penalized
a point for stalling.
The contest at 158 was the most exciting of the
night, as UNC's Joe Silvestro scored on a one-point
escape in the final few seconds to offset the riding
time and advantage earned by the Wolfpack's Chuck
Murray. The final score was 6-6. Still, the Tar Heels
held an 11 -point lead, 17-6.
At 167, UNC coach Bill Lam put in Stocky Cabe
to face State's best wrestler, Gregg Fatool. Fatool
dominated the contest, scoring a technical fall at 8:15.
Fatool continually allowed Cabe a one-point escape
so he could work on the two-point takedown. The
strategy worked as Fatool worked his lead up to the
15 points necessary to score a technical fall and give
his team six points.
Tad Wilson, usually a competitor at 167, moved
up to the 177 division and tied State's John Connelly,
6-6. Wilson had a one-point lead in the final period
The outcome of the game was never
in doubt, as UNC led from start to finish
to up its record to 7-2 in the ACC and
12-7 overall. Scoring the vast majority
of their points inside and off of the fast
break, the Tar Heels thoroughly dom
inated Georgia Tech, dropping the
Yellow Jackets to 6-11 overall and 0
10 in the conference.

Why do today what you can do
That was the philosophy the North
Carolina women's gymnastics team had
to adopt Friday night when it showed
up at a meet at N.C. State and disco
vered that the Wolfpack gymnasts
thought the meet was scheduled for
UNC coach Derek Galvin had the
contract between the two schools with
him and was able to prove that the meet
was scheduled for Friday.
NCSU was willing to forfeit, but
Galvin said no. He would bring his team
back the next night. "I don't want to
win because they forfeit. I want to win
because we beat them," Galvin said.
The Tar Heels went back on Saturday
and defeated N.C. State and Georgia
College with a score of 171.25. Georgia
College placed second at 153.7 and
State, last year's ACC champion, scored
Of the four events, the floor exercise
proved to be the Tar Heels' best. UNC
captured the first five places, with Stacy
Kaplan winning first and Christine
Thorhe and Suzanne Tonietto tying for
The crowd waited eagerly to see the

gymnasium that Stacy Kaplan would

routine. It was the first time she had
tried the move in a college meet.
team leaders in scoring, excelled during
the game and particularly in the first
half, when between them they scored
33 of the Tar Heels' 43 points. Fittingly,
they opened the scoring as Leake fed
Royster for an easy basket. Seconds
later, Leake drove to the hoop for her
first two points of the night.
In the next 10 minutes the tandem
combined for 16 points, giving UNC
a 22-9 lead which it never relinquished.
The key to the victory for the Tar
Heels was their suffocating defense,
which forced Georgia Tech into 31
turnovers. "We did a very good job
defensively," head coach Jennifer Alley
said. "We play better when we play an
upbeat tempo, and our defense is what
dictates that tempo, as they did
Twenty-two of Tech's turnovers came
on Tar Heel steals. Leake led the way
with eight thefts, while both Royster
and Tia Poindexter contributed four
steals. The steals usually translated into
easy baskets for UNC. Indeed, were it

not stepped out of bounds, whe would

Kaplan said she was satisfied and
relieved. "I'm glad to have made it, and
now I can perfect it," the freshman said.
Thorne, who tied for second in the
floor exercise, said she was pleased with
her own routine. "It felt good to me
because it was a big improvement over
the last two meets," she said. "The score

Kaplan also won the vaulting event.
Thorne and Elizabeth Boulton tied for

until he was penalized for stalling, giving Connelly
all he needed for a tie.
At 190, both wrestlers were again penalized for
stalling. Unfortunately for North Carolina, that was
the only point earned by Craig Spivey as State's
freshman Mike Lombardo rolled to a 7-1 decision.
The team score was then 19-17, with UNC in the
lead. But because the lead was only two points, the
winner of the heavyweight match would capture the
team competition as well.
North Carolina's Stacey Davis faced State's Garrett
Keith in the night's final match and very quickly
reinjured an ankle which had given him trouble since
his team's Midwestern tour. Keith dominated the
match as Davis was only able to score on escapes
and the two stalling penalties on Keith. The final count

UNC jumped out to its quick lead
early in the first half after Leake and
Royster played a little two-on-five,
scoring on their first 10 attempts from
the field. Georgia Tech mounted a mild
comeback at that point, scoring eight
points in a run marred only by a basket
by Poindexter inside, and cut the Tar
Heels' lead to 24-17. But any hopes Tech
fans might have had for a second
Sunday upset in Carmichael were
quickly dispelled when UNC reeled off
10 consecutive points and increased its
lead to 17. The lights could have been
turned off at that point. Tech never got
any closer than 16 points after that, and
the Tar Heels went into the locker room
at halftime with a comfortable 45-27
The second half was more of the
same, as UNC ran the Yellow Jackets
into the ground while sporting a varietv
of defensive and offensive sets
The only real difference between the
two periods was the lack of scoring from
Royster and Leake, who had only nine
points between them after intermission.
This, however, was due less to Tech's
defense than it was to a conscious effort
to diversify the offense. Alley said.
