Lauria redeems himself in bottom of ninth
By KURT ROSENBERG
The script had been arranged to perfection. Here
was the team's best hitter stepping to the plate in
the situation in which U; was needed the most -bottom
of the ninth, tie score, runners at first and
second, the last game before the conference tourna
ment, and momentum on the line.
When B.J. Surhoff approached the plate, everyone
wearing a blue and white uniform was relieved,
knowing he was the man they wanted up there.
Everyone except Chris Lauria, who sat in the on
deck circle, still well aware that had it not been lor
his crucial mistake in the seventh inning, the 1 ar Heels
probably would not have been forced into this
situation. His inability to pick up coach Mike Rrt.s
sign to take a pitch with the bases loaded and his
subsequent squeeze bunt attempt had cost UNC a
possible big inning that might have put the team ahead
So even with Surhoff at the plate, Lauria was not
necessarily enjoying the moment. He simply was
hoping for a second chance with which to atone for
his earlier miscue.
He got it. Surhoff hit a lazy popup to right held
for the second out of the inning, and suddenly, it
was up to Lauria. Redemption was there for the
And Lauria wasted little time taking advantage oi
it. He ripped the first pitch from Georgia Tech's Rob
Beistline into right field. The ball sank in front of
Pete GeiM. who made adivingatten"-' but was "nable
to stop it. It went past Geist, kept rolling, Jim Stone
scored easily from second, and the Tar Heels beat
the Yellow Jackets, 4-3, alter two bnel rain delays,
completing a weekend ACC sweep. On Saturday,
UNC routed Clemson, 10-3.
"I was kind of hoping B.J. wouldn't drive in the
winning run so I could do it," Lauria said later, only
half-jokingly. "1 was the goat earlier in the game. I
just felt terrible. I was dying to get back up there."
Lauria and his teammates probably never should
have found themselves in a dramatic, bottom-of-the-ninth
situation. They allowed the Yellow Jackets to
score the tying run on an error in the top of the
seventh, failed to do anything in the bottom of the
seventh with the bases loaded and one out, committed
three errors, had two runners picked off and left nine
"We did not play well," Roberts said. "I'm pleased
with the win, but I'm not pleased with the way we
had to go about winning it. We made some mental
mistakes that pushed the game into the ninth inning."
Georgia Tech pitcher Roger Kinard held the Tar
Heels down for six innings, while the Yellow Jackets
took a 2-0 lead against UNC starter Steve McGuire.
Carl Sitler smashed a double in the third to score
Walt McConnell from first and Jamie Sims sent a
ball over the left-field fence in the fourth for Tech.
In the sixth, North Carolina took the lead, scoring
three runs sandwiched around a short rain delay
the second in as many innings. Surhoff walked, Lauria
singled him to third, and Scott Johnson ripped a line
single to right to make it 2-1 and give him his 77th
RBI of the season. Lauria scored on the next pitch
when it went over the head of catcher Pete Stephens.
Then, with Devy Bell at the plate, the rains came.
When the game was resumed just a short while later.
Bell greeted Tech reliever John Stewart with a single
to center to score Johnson and give the Tar Heels
But the Yellow Jackets quickly tied it. Scott Jordan
led off the seventh with a ground-rule double off Tim
Kirk, and after reliever Gordon Douglas came on,
Tech scored with two outs. With Jordan on third,
Sitler walked and stole second. Jordan, trying to score
on the stolen base, appeared to be nailed, but second
baseman Alvin Taylor threw wildly past home and
the game was tied.
In the bottom of the inning, UNC blew an
opportunity to score when Lauria, thinking the
squeeze was on, attempted to bunt with the bases
loaded. A confused Matt Merullo, who was on third,
was picked off by Stephens for the second out. Lauria
walked, but Johnson popped out to end the inning.
The Tar Heels avenged an earlier loss to Clemson
by thoroughly outplaying the Tigers on Saturday.
UNC scored two in the first and four more in the
second to give Roger Williams all the cushion he
needed. Williams, who has won his last five decisions,
went eight innings and struck out eight batters as
he raised his record to 7-1.
The Tar Heels, who have won 26 of their last 30,
are 35-13-1. Their 9-4-1 ACC record gives them a
third-place seeding in the tournament, which starts
Wednesday in Atlanta.
Surhoff, Weiss and Williams may bid goodbye
By LEE ROBERTS
When the last run scored in the
bottom of the ninth inning in a misty
rain at Boshamer Stadium Sunday, it
signaled the end of an era in North
Three juniors, and possibly a fourth,
were very likely playing their last games
ever as Tar Heels in Chapel Hill. B.J.
Surhoff, Walt Weiss, Roger Williams
and maybe even Scott Johnson are all
legitimate first- or second-round draft
choices in the upcoming June draft.
Being draft-eligible juniors, chances are
they wont be here next season.
The four formed the nucleus of a team
that scaled the heights of the North
Carolina baseball program's history,
winning 80-plus percent of its games
over the last three years.
The jury's out on whether any or all
of them will sign professional contracts
and move on to greener pastures. The
general feeling among people associated
with the program is that they will
provided the signing bonuses are for
enough money. Scott Bankhead took
a signing bonus in the neighborhood
of $100,000 last year as the 15th pick
in the first round, selected by the Kansas
City Royals organization.
Surhoff and Weiss should at least
equal in signing bonus what Bankhead
got, and Williams is expected to as well.
Assistant coach Howard McCullough
says a first-round draft pick will get on
the average a $90,000 bonus to sign a
When asked Saturday afternoon if he
expected the trio of Surhoff, Weiss and
Williams to remain here next year,
McCullough cracked a knowing smile.
"They're all gone," he says. "They play
their last home game tomorrow (Sun
day) against Georgia Tech. Surhoff,
Weiss and Williams have nothing left
to prove in college baseball."
Teammates doubt the three will be
here. Doug Torborg, Mike Jedziniak
and rreg Karpuk all say the three will
Coach Mike Roberts is among the
doubters, as well. "Personally, I think
B.J. and Walt are first-round material,"
Roberts says. "Roger has an excellent
chance of going in the first three rounds.
I would doubt he'd be here another year.
"It's the best thing for them to do,"
he says. "They're all polished Division
Roberts says the coaching staff will
sit down with all four players and advise
them on what they feel would be best.
"Well set a minimum amount of money
for this guy or that guy. No junior has
ever left here for less than a $15,000
bonus. But in today's economy, I don't
think that's enough."
That shouldn't be a concern. Surhoff,
Weiss and Williams are all ranked
among the top 25 college players in the
country by Baseball America and Bill
Mazeroski's Baseball Magazine.
Here's a look at all four players, and
what they think their chances are:
Surhoff: The most-publicized
member of the UNC baseball program,
Surhoff is a natural. Drafted by the New
York Yankees right out of high school,
Surhoff elected to come to North
Carolina instead. No one in Chapel Hill
wept over his decision. He has starred
for the United States in the Pan
American Games in 1983 and the
Olympics last year. In three years,
Surhoff has gone from great to greater,
hitting .386 his freshman year, .400 last
year and .405 this year. He owns a
busload of North Carolina records.
Will he be here next year? "It just
depends on the situation," he says. "I
hope I get drafted real high. You get
pretty good money for that. It all
depends on where I go in the draft and
what offer they talk about."
Surhoffs mother, Nancy Surhoff, in
the stands Sunday, doesn't know what
to expect from her son. "Well just wait
and see," she says. "It's a monumental
decision for him to make. And it's his
decision. I just want whatever makes
him happy whatever he wants."
Weiss: What a difference a slick
fielding, rocket-armed shortstop makes.
In its first 15 games this year, UNC went
7-8 without the services of the injured
Weiss. Since his return. North Carolina
is 26-3-1. That's no coincidence, either.
Drafted in the 10th round by Baltimore
out of high school, Weiss opted for
North Carolina, where he has started
for three years.
Will he be back next year? "No. I
really don't expect it," Weiss says. "I'm
not sure but if things go the way
IVe heard, I won't be here."
Williams: He sat patiently in the
background. While Scott Bankhead
was racking up those 1 1-0 seasons,
Williams was second in the nation with
a 1.19 tRA as a freshman and 10-2
last year. He was an ace on the U.S.
amateur team that finished third at the
World Amateur Baseball champion
ships in October, throwing two shu
touts. This season was the Greenville
native's chance to step to the forefront,
and he didn't disappoint. Compiling a
7-1 record, Williams stabilized the staff,
and had some simply amazing games,
like when he struck out 19 Duke batters
in an 1 1-0 win.
Will he return in "86? "If I felt the
opportunity was good enough, I'd go,"
he says. "As far as how much money
UNC's Walt Walts forcas out Steva Newborn to end the fourth Inning of Sunday's 4-3 win over Georgia Tech.
I haven't even thought
it would take,
about that vet.'
Williams says he'd be sad to leave,
saying North Carolina has been a great
place to play and that he's made some
great friends. But, still, "If 1 go pretty
high (in the draft), I'll go," he says.
Johnson: Rated as somewhat of a
dark horse, Johnson could still go,
considering the astronomical numbers
he's put up on the board this year (.367,
20 homers, 77 RBIs). "Our encourage
ment is for Scott to spend another year
here," Roberts says. The main hang-up
is that Johnson does not have some of
the great things aside from his powerful
bat that Weiss and Surhoff have like
great speed and an extremely strong,
arm. Still, scouts have thrown his name
around a lot, according to McCullough,
and if the money's right, hell probably'
Will he be around next season?
"Chances of me going are pretty good,"
he says. "But it's gonna have to be a
huge amount of money. It II have to
pay for a year of school and then some.
I'd say it would ha e to be over
"It's almost like losing one of your
kids, Roberts says. My heart says I d
like to have them play another year in
Carolina blue, but they're ready at this
point lor a new challenge.
While one or all four of these players
may be gone to greener pastures next
season, the mark they've left on the
North Carolina baseball program will
not soon be toreotten.
Parker, Love lead UNC to win in Invitational
When Greg Parker stepped onto the
first tee yesterday at Finley Golf Course,
he led the rest of the Tar Heel Invi
tational field by five strokes. Five hours,
18 holes, three birdies and 72 strokes
later, Parker was still in the lead. With
a three-day total of 209, he had won
his third tournament of the year and
helped UNC to its fifth victory in seven
Parker's performance, which
included a 69 on Friday and a 68 on
Saturday, overshadowed the at-times
brilliant play of his teammate Davis
Love, who carded a 67 Friday and a
68 Sunday. But while Parker turned in
three consistent and solid rounds, Love
had one very bad round, when he shot
76 Saturday to fall six strokes behind
Parker. If Love had been able to
minimize his bad holes, or if he had
putted better, his 211 total might have
been 209, and Parker's two-stroke
margin of victory could easily have been
"1 played two good rounds this
week," Love said. "I'm happy with a
68, but if I had putted good, 1 could
have caught Greg. 1 had chances for
eagle on 5, 9, 13 and 14 and could have
birdie 8 and 17. I'm really happy with
the way I hit the ball. The putts will
Take nothing away from Parker,
though. He played very well throughout
the tournament and clearly justified
Coach Devon Brouse's decision to play
him No. I. After two excellent rounds
Friday and Saturday, Parker shot an
even-par 72 (35-37) Sunday which
included three bogeys, three birdies and
fourteen '4's. He drove the ball very well
and got up and down in two no less
than six times. And at no time did he
ever lose control or become frustrated,
cardinal sins for a golfer. With a curious
combination of brilliance and consis
tency, Parker held off the onrushing
Love to win.
"1 played good the whole tourna
ment", he said. "I played solid and stuck
basically to my game plan. The course
was playing short this week, so 1 knew
I had to take advantage of the par-5s.
And I did." Parker was 10 under for
the tournament on Finley's four par
Parker had two big advantages
Sunday besides his five-stroke lead.
First, he was playing at home, at a
course he knows well. "Common
knowledge means a lot," Parker said.
"I really look forward to playing at
Finley because I know it and how to
take advantage of it."
The other advantage he had was that
he went off in the last group, right after
Love, and so at most times knew how
big his lead was. That enabled him to
play for pars instead of birdies, safe
instead of high-risk shots. That's not
to say that Parker ever let up, for clearly
Davis Love is too good a golfer to ever
be counted out.
But Parker did bogey the eighteenth
hole with a three-stroke lead. "Having
a lead allows you to make a bogey,"
he said. "I wasnt trying to bogey the
hole, but I just wanted to make sure
1 wasn't going to make a seven. I knew
I could three-putt and still win."
With Love and Parker's individual
duel dominating the tournament, the
UNC team's accomplishment was
somewhat obscured. The Tar Heels,
who trailed South Florida by one stroke
after the first day of play, led Florida
by six strokes and Tennessee by seven
when play began Sunday. When play
ended, that lead had been extended to
13 strokes. UNC finished with a score
of 859 while its nearest competitor,
Tennessee, shot 872. Florida, mean
while, ballooned to 878.
UNC's victory was its fourth consec
utive Invitational triumph, and the
team's fifth win in seven tournaments.
Indeed, the Tar Heels have not finished
worse than second yet this spring, and
look ready for next week's ACC
Tournament at Bryan Park in Greens
boro and the NCAAs in May.
Even leaving aside the big two of
Parker and Love, UNC is very strong.
Jack Nicklaus, who fired a 73 Sunday
to finish with 222, has been a key
ingredient to the team's success, as has
Bryan Sullivan, who carded a 225. And
John Hughes, who won a qualifying
round earlier in the week to catapult
himself into the top five, played well
over the weekend, shooting a 70
yesterday to finish with 218. Although
Kurt Beck, who is sidelined with an
ankle injury, may play in the ACC
Tournament, Brouse doesn't feel any
urgent need to replace Hughes. He is
guardedly confident about the team's
chances this coming weekend.
"The fact that Wake Forest beat us
by 21 shots at Furman shows we have
a lot of room for improvement," he said.
"But I think this team is capable of
winning whenever it's playing, and
we've got as good a shot as anyone at
winning the ACC."
The big word for the Tar Heels this
year is solid. Their official singers
should be Ashford and Simpson. UNC
shot 285 Friday, 291 Saturday and 283
Sunday. Those are the scores of a team
which knows how to win. The Tar Heels
are veteran, accustomed to winning, and
ready for the ACC and NCAA
In the words of Greg Parker: "We
feel pretty confident about our chances.

Lacrosse lackadaisical in 13-7 win
By MIKE WATERS
Blame the front desk. The North
Carolina lacrosse team never got its 2
o'clock wake-up call for Saturday's
game with winless University of
The Tar Heels played a sloppy,
lackadaisical game but still had more
than enough firepower to defeat the
outmanned Retrievers, 13-7, at Fetzer
Field in front of 3,200 fans.
UMBC succeeded in slowing down
UNC's vaunted offense for three quar
ters by controlling the face-offs and
sagging back into a tight box-and-two
zone defense. The 0-8 Retrievers went '
into the final period behind only 8-6
versus the third-ranked Tar Heels
before UNC outscored them 5-1 in the
last 15 minutes.
The lackluster performance left UNC
coach Willie Scroggs in a simmering
state following North Carolina's third
"I thought it was dreadful," Scroggs
said. "We didn't play very intensely
defensively. It wasn't a very good game.
We should be ashamed."
The Tar Heels never trailed in the
game but neither could they ever break
away from UMBC. The largest lead of
the afternoon until the fourth quarter
was a short-lived 5-2 advantage in the
The unimpressive display cast a dark
shadow over a good day's work turned
in by senior attackman Mac Ford. The
Tar Heels' captain and leading scorer
caged six goals and two assists on
Saturday. Ford now has 26 goals and
10 assists for the season.
"They played us tough," Ford said
of UNC's troublesome opponent. "I
don't know what it was. They played
a zone defense and cut off our one-on-one."
Although winless on the year, U M BC
marched onto Fetzer Field with an air
of excitement mixed with confidence.
Goalkeeper Dan Schaffer got his first
start of the year and played the game
of his life. North Carolina fired 63 shots
on Schaffcr's goal, but the 5-10 junior

UMBC was certainly psyched up for
North Carolina, but the Tar Heels
seemed preoccupied. For three quarters

of the usual fast-breaking offense and

Football gives spring sneak peek
By LEE ROBERTS
The Blue-White spring football intrasquad game was held
Saturday at Kenan Stadium before about 2,000 mildly
But North Carolina coach Dick Crum held a more-than-passing
interest in the annual scrimmage, won by the Blues,
19-6. Crum was pleased, to say the least, with the just
concluded spring practice session of the last five weeks.
"This is the best spring weVe had since IVe been here,"
Crum said in laid-back spring practice manner. "There were
no bad days of practice, and we scrimmaged the most we
ever have. They really held up well."
Crum also mentioned that he had been pleased with the
great attitude of this young, but experienced team. "There
really haven't been many negative points about this spring,"
he said. Only Tim Morrison was injured (a broken arm
the second day of practice), and some good things were
discovered about the team.
Namely, that a couple of receivers and a running back
switching to the defensive backfield may really help this
coming season. The play of former receivers Larry Griffin
and Norris Davis and former tailback Antonio Goss has
"Griffin is a good player, and we want to try to get
him on the field," Crum said. "He's done a really good
job here, and being a former receiver, he understands what
he has to do. He's got a good knack for playing out there.
The same goes for Norris Davis and Goss." ,
The unexpectedly sound play of the defensive backfield,
a sore spot for North Carolina over the years (witness Doug
Flutie's 52-20 passing demolition last year), has surprised
"I always knew Griffin was a receiver," senior linebacker
Carl Carr said. "But he's been playing defensive back like
he's been there his whole life."
The addition of a few sound defensive backs will help
in North Carolina's new primary defense, the Split-Four,
which features four down linemen and five defensive backs.
Griffin pulled in an interception Saturday, and Crum
expects many more this coming season.
Another bright spot was the play of two tailbacks who
will remain on offense, junior William Humes and freshman
Brad Sullivan. The two are small (Humes is 5-1 114, 190
pounds: Sullivan is 5-1 1, 194) and display darting quickness.
Humes has had game experience the last two years as Ehan
Horton's caddy, but Crum said both should see considerable
amounts of playing time.
"They should complement each other real well," Crum
said. However, their size and the amount of split duty they
receive may mean an end to the string of UNC 1,000 yard
rushers. "Having 1,000 rushers, if it happens, it's great,"
Crum said. "But we don't look at it at the beginning of
Ilk season and .say. 'we ntwi .i l.titm :trd rusher.' Look
for a blend of running and passing next year."
That blend may be more heavily weighted toward passing,
however. In the two game condition scrimmages, junior
quarterback Kevin Anthony, last year's starter, threw 84
passes. Saturday, Anthony was 22-for-36 passing, while his
White team counterparts, Wes Sweetser and Mike Bowman,
aired it out 49 times.
In fact, the passing explosion of the last three games
last season should continue next fall. "We're aiming at 35
to 40 throws a game," Anthony said. "Everyone likes that,
it makes the game exciting. WeVe got some incredible
receiving talent. If you get it in their hands, something's
Another reason for the passing explosion may be that
this will be the smallest UNC offensive line since Crum
has been coaching here. "I think probably we are better
fixed to throw the ball more than grind it out," Crum
In fact, two of the three touchdowns Saturday were scored
on pass plays. Anthony hit Winfield down the right sideline
on a pretty 42-yard scoring pass in the first quarter, and
hit Humes wide open down the middle of the field for
a 23-yard score late in the game. Anthony scored the only
other TD on a five-yard bootleg run just before halftime.
White scored its six points on two Lee Gliarmis field
goals. Crum said Gliarmis and Kenny Miller (I8-for-19
kicking last year) will share the place-kicking duties.
Meanwhile, both defenses looked reasonably sound.
"Last year, we weren't very good defensively," Crum said.
"A team like Boston College could have played us 10 times
and beat us every time."
The new defense and the seasoning of players like Noel
McEachern, Reuben Davis, Howard Feggins, Troy
Simmons, Carl Carr, Dennis Barron and Ron Burton sheds
a more positive light on next year's chances.
"If you take the last three games of last season and look
at what we have now," Carr, a senior linebacker, said,
"this defense is really shaping up."
The defense and the offense better be shaping up,
because a schedule with the likes of Louisiana State, Florida
State and Clemson isnt going to be any cakewalk. "I think
it (the hard schedule) is going to make us olav better.
Carr said. "ItH make us get up for a game a lot more
than a Miami of Ohio."
Carr thinks the enthusiasm of this team may help the
Tar Heels through their tough schedule, as well. "You heard
us popping out there today," he said. "There were some

Stewart 's tennis schooling pays off with good grades
By MARK DAVIS
Eddie Stewart first picked up a tennis
racket when he was eight years old. He's
20 now, and after a 12-year career that's
included a two-year stint at a prestigious
tennis academy in Florida, a state
championship, a national ranking, and
too many tournaments to count, Ste
wart has no intention of putting down
his racket anytime soon.
For Stewart, all the practice is paying
off, as he's playing the best tennis of
his life. He's ranked No. 56 in the
country for his age group and is
emerging as a catalyst for the UNC
men's tennis team. When talking to him,
you get the impression of someone who
is able to keep things in perspective but
who knows his ability.
"This is probably my best season so
far," Stewart said. "IVe only lost one
match in straight sets. Most of my losses
could have been wins. Last year I'd get
down and couldnt get back up. This
year I'm working a lot harder."
After playing half the season at fourth
seed, Stewart was moved to the No. 3
spot during the team's road trip to Texas
over Spring Break, a move that neither
Stewart nor coach Allen Morris has
regretted since. The Tar Heels have been
playing much stronger recently after a
slightly disappointing start due to
injuries. The resurgence has been a team
effort, but Morris says Stewart has
played a large part in that effort.
"This is Eddie's best year at UNC,"
Morris said. "He's won some big
matches and at times has come from
behind very well. He's matured a lot
and is able to volley more often.
"His serve is awesome when it's
working. His only problem is that
sometimes he forgets the little things like
bending his knees, but I'm very proud
of him. He's done a super job."

results against ACC rivals

men's team geared up for its conference
tournament by splitting two crucial
ACC matches in net action over the
Clemson won its fourth straight
conference title by scoring 126 points
to North Carolina's 1 18. The Tigers and
Tar Heels squared off in four of the
nine finals held Sunday, with the
outcome still very much in doubt.
But only Elizabeth Alexander at No.

against its nemesis of the last few
seasons. Alexander lost the first set in
her match against Clemson's Lisa

five more games in the match and win
