Fop. 48 beeches 13
ACC football ffirosh
: By WENDY STRING FELLOW
; Staff Writer
Thirteen of 193 freshman football
recruits in the ACC won't play this
year as a result of the NCAA's
Proposition 48, according to a USA
The rules hit Clemson hardest of
the ACC teams, with six of its
freshman players sidelined. UNC
lost one player, whose name has not
been released. Duke didn't lose any
of its freshmen recruits. Nationwide,
more than 350 football players have
been declared ineligible to play for
their freshman seasons, and will not
be allowed to practice or travel with
Proposition 48 became effective
; Aug. 1, and it requires college
; athletes to meet academic require
; ments before they can play at
; NCAA-member schools.
; The requirements include a sliding
; scale where athletes must have at
; least a 2.0 grade-point average in
; high school and score of at least 700
; out of a possible 1600 on the SAT
; or 15 of a possible 35 on the ACT.
Also they must meet core curriculum
requirements geared to prepare them
for college, as opposed to vocational
courses. An athlete can compensate
for a score as low as 660 on the SAT
with a higher grade-point average.
"It has set some standards, and
we need increased academic stand
ards," says John Blanchard, a UNC
athletic academic counselor.
But he adds, "There's too much
controversy over the validity of the
SAT as a measuring stick. We don't
have that many measuring sticks."
UNC basketball coach Dean
' Smith says the biggest benefit of the
proposition is the athletes having to
take core curriculum courses. I
don't know if Proposition 48 has
changed anything except making
players take preparatory courses," he
Of the one million students who
took he ACT in 1985, 80 percent
scored 13 or higher. Of 1.5 million
who took the SAT, only 1 1 percent
scored less than 300 on the verbal
portion, and eight percent scored less
than 300 on the math portion.
If an athlete has a high enough
grade point average, but doesn't
score enough on his board exams,
he can still accept an athletic scho
larship, but he cannot practice or
play with the varsity as a freshman.
Also, he loses one of his four years
of college eligibility.
"The real winners will be those in
high school who will be motivated
to meet the standards and study
harder," says Blanchard. "The losers
will be the kids left out of
Blanchard says UNC as an insti
tution, as well as the athletic depart
ment, favor freshmen ineligibility
anyway. "It gives the person a year
off to adjust to college."
Meanwhile, UNC recruiting coach
Jack Himebauch must search harder
to find football players who measure
up. He also believes the proposition
will affect the athletes negatively.
"Something they've been able to
do all their life is going to be taken
away from them. It takes away some
of their enthusiasm for something
Of the UNC recruit sidelined,
Himebauch says he's an example of
someone who had an "excellent
classroom background" but didn't
do well enough on his boards.

RehashiM UNC summer sipoFts mews
By BOB YOUNG
Assistant Sports Editor
Hey, how was your summer?
Really? That bad huh? Mine too.
Anyways, just to get you caught
up on some summer UNC sports
news that you may have missed. . .
Women's basketball: Coach Jen
nifer Alley stepped down as head
coach of the Tar Heels just after the
end of the school year to pursue
personal business interests.
At the end of July, the athletic
department announced that her
replacement would be Sylvia Rhyne
Hatchell, who was head coach at
Francis Marion college in Florence,
S.C. She takes over a UNC team
that went 23-9 in 1986 and finished
the season ranked 16th in the nation.
While at Francis Marion, Hatchell
led her most recent team to the
National Association of Intercolle
giate Athletics national champion
ship and a 36-2 record. Her 11 -year
record as a coach is 273-80, and
Francis Marion led the nation in
scoring the past three seasons.
This summer, Hatchell, a native
of Gastonia, was an assistant coach
on the U.S. women's basketball team
that defeated the Soviet Union to
take the gold medal at the Goodwill
Games in Moscow as well as the gold
medal at the World University
NBA Draft: UNC center Brad
Daugherty was the First player
chosen in the annual National
Basketball Association draft in June.
He is now a member of the Cleveland
Cavaliers, who obtained the first
pick from the Philadelphia 76ers by
trading center Roy Hinson.
Two other Tar Heel seniors were
caught in the draft. Warren Martin
will have a familiar companion in
rookie camp, as he was also picked
up by the Cavaliers. Steve Hale, who
will probably pass up the NBA in
favor of attending medical school,
was chosen by the New Jersey Nets.
Miscellaneous: The Tar Heels fin
ished 1 2th in the nation at the NCAA
Men's Golf Championships, as ACC
rival Wake Forest put on a strong
surge to take the team crown. . .Two
UNC athletes earned All-America
honors in track. Kevin McGorty
finished eighth in the decathlon and
George Nicholas took fourth in the
5,000-meter run. . .Matt Merullo
and Scott Johnson were chosen in
the major league baseball draft.
Merullo is playing for the Prince
William Pirates of the Carolina
League and Johnson for the Burling
ton Indians of the Appalachian

The University of North Carolina
women's volleyball team is looking
strong in pre-season action as it
prepares with three daily workouts
to compete for an NCAA tourna
ment bid this season.
Although third-year head coach
Peggy Bradley-Doppes led the team
to a 30-14 record in 1985, injuries
plagued the squad which was left
with a bare minimum of six healthy
players at the finish of the season.
But this year should be different.
Whereas the 1985 team started off
the season with 10 players, the 1986
roster is carrying 13 in order to avert
the problems of the previous year.
The key to the larger squad lies
within the very sucessful recruiting
year North Carolina had. "We
purposely recruited on the basis of
adding more depth to our program,"
assistant coach Jolene Nagel said.
Depth is exactly what the Tar Heels
got as they added six strong fresh
men to the team.
Amoung UNC's newest additions
are 6-2 middle blocker Sharon
German, 6-2 hitter blocker Carole
Ann LaMorte, 6-0 middle hitter I .isa
Joffs, and 5-10 hitter setter Ann
Palmer. They are joined by another
freshman, Kristin Breuss, who is a
Morehead Scholar. All come from
strong programs and should make
great contributions as members of
North Carolina's tallest freshman
Yet, there are some obstacles the
team will face this season. The Tar
Heels have a very challenging sche
dule as they will be playing high
ranking teams from across the
country, including defending ACC
In addition to a tough scedule,
North Carolina may have problems
because of its inexperience. The team
is comprised mainly of sophomores
and freshmen in addition to two
returning seniors, Jill Berkebile and
- Dawn Wood. '
Helping to alleviate some of these
obstacles will be the boost that has
come from a few players who have
trained hard in summer conditioning
programs. Among those who
worked especially hard to come back
strong this year are Ann Schild
meyer, Sherri Vogel, and Andrea
