North Carolina's women's soccer
team, always one of the top-rated
squads in the country, is ready, willing
and able to face the challenges of the
After being national champions for
four consecutive years, the Tar Heels
lost to George Mason in the finals of
the NCAA Tournament in 1985. This
season, according to eighth-year head
coach Anson Dorrance, the challenge
is wto rebuild an All-America defense
as well as to regain the national title.'
To complicate the defensive situa
tion, there are five starters absent from
last year's runner-up team. Those
include All-America backfielders
Senga Allen, Stacey Enos, and Dori
Kovenan, as well as reserve Toni
Catchings. During their stay at UNC,
these defenders held opponents to a
0.5 scoring average over five seasons.
That's a tough act for any backfield ,
to follow, yet coach Dorrance is
"We've had a good recruiting year,"
Dorrance said. "WeVe got a lot of
quality and strength in the newco
mers." Several of the freshmen back
field candidates include Lori Henry,
who is from Seattle, Wash., a two-time
All-America; Carla Werden (Dallas),
a two-time member of the U.S.
National Team; and Ava Hyatt from
Tampa, Fla., an all-state performer.
Returners from last year's, reserves
include sophomore Andrea Zeman
(East Northport, N.Y.), who partici
pated in 16 matches last fall, junior
Keath Castelloe, from Raleigh, N.C.,
and sophomore Annie McNeill, who
hails from Bowie, Maryland.
Senior Kathleen O'Dell, from Anna
polis, Md., will be returning as starting
goalkeeper and she may have some
help from Gretchen Gegg (Seattle,
Wash.), a top newcomer and national
team member, and sophomore reserves
Anne Sherow (Dayton, Ohio) and
Kasey Jones (Dallas, Texas).
Despite major reconstructive
surgery in the backfield, the Tar Heel
midfield is returning in strong form.
Although All-America and team
captain Betsy Johnson is gone, along
with Stacey Nelson, a handful of
candidates hope to fill their shoes. At
the midfield position, returning starters
are senior NCAA All Tournament
member Marcia McDermott, a native
of McLean, Va., who scored nine goals
in 20 games last season and sophomore
Tracey Bates of Dallas.
Others expected to pick up any slack
include sophomore Wendy Gebauer
(Reston, Va.), who took part in 17
games and scored eight goals last
season, and junior Lisa Duffy
(Raleigh, N.C.). Freshman Shannon
Higgins (Kent, Wash.), a triple
NSCAA All-America performer,
could also provide . penetration and
range in the midfield.
The UNC front line is the only
position to go unscathed through
graduation with all. three starters
returning. April Heinrichs (Littleton,
Colo.), a senior, has led the team in
scoring all three years of her collegiate
career and is a three-time All-America.
Sophomore Carrie Serwetnyk, coming
to North Carolina from Mississauga,
Ontario, led the team in goals scored
last year with 19 and Jo Boobas,a
senior from McLean, Va., was the
team's third leading scorer with 15
goals and was named to the NCAA
Other returning front line reserves
include Birthe Hegstad (Great Falls,
Va.), Bettina Bernardi (Dallas, Texas),
who is coming back after being red
shirted due to a knee-injury, and Sherri
McDavid (Fairfax, Va.), and newco
mer Julie Guanotta, from Winchester,
"We do have some problems with
the backfield and that's what weVe
been concentrating on," Dorrance
The Tar Heels' first match is the
North Carolina Invitational Aug. 30
31 at Fetzer Field. UNC will play the
University of Massachusetts Saturday
at 1 p.m. and will square off against
Central Florida Sunday at 5 p.m. This
could very well be a preview of the
Final Four in women's soccer, as the
fourth team in the tournament will be
"Massachusetts' is returning their
whole team from last season and
Central Florida has a lot of talent,"
Dorrance said. "And George Mason
won the NCAAs last year, so this
should be the best women's soccer
action in the country."

Cross country tries to
keep 1985 momentum
By BOB YOUNG
Assistant Sports Editor
November 25, 1985. On that
date, UNC cross country com
pleted one of the biggest non-foreign-athlete-related
rounds in collegiate sports.
. That was the date when AU
American George Nicholas led his
team to a fifth-place finish in the
NCAA Cross Country Champion
ships in Milwaukee, . Wis. How
much of a turnaround? The year
before, the Tar Heels finished sixth
in the conference, that is.
This year, the men's team will
be out to solidify its newly-found,
status in the absence of Nicholas,
while the women's team will seek
to regain the successes it enjoyed
in the early 'SOs.
Although the men's team loses
the services of Nicholas, it returns
everybody else from the defending
ACC champion squad.
The top returnee is Jim Farmer,
a senior from Raleigh, who also
earned All-America honors last
season with a 36th-place finish at
nationals. He will be joined by
three other seniors Mike Cur
rinder, Reggie Harris and Bill Will.
"Those guys are the strength of
the team," according to men's
coach Chris Fox. "They're seniors
who have been with the program
and know what it takes to win."
Other team members that show
promise are sophomores Mike
McGowan and Danny Howat,
along with freshmen Mike Cline

and Johan Boakes (a 18-year-old
Brit who recently ran a four-minute

to fill that gap are seniors Karol

man. Last year's frosh phenom,;
Chryssa Nicholas, has been slowed,
slightly by stress fractures, but
should be in good shape for end-pf-season
Filling out the squad, which
finished a disappointing fourth in
the conference in 1985, will be
juniors Vicki Verinder and Jeanne
Matta, and newcomers Kari Tor
jussen and Carmen Richardson.
The main competition for both
teams will come from N.C. State,
Again, the Raleigh teams lost

"And I'm sure the men are
looking to avenge last year's loss
at the ACCs," Fox said.
The two teams probably will hot
square off this year until the
conference championships, which
will be run Nov. 1 at Clemson.
Before that, UNC will compete in
some low-key meets in the East,
host its own invitational (Sept. 27),
and will get a preliminary look at
this years NCAA course (at the
Arizona Invitational in Tucson).

is the best second baseman in
baseball. He has drawn 65 walks this
year, second only to Hernandez. If
Doran played in Wrigley Field, Ryne
Sandberg's annual ticket to the All
Star Game would be revoked.
Before we leave the National
League, one final note. Two teams
in the West, the Padres and Braves,
are laboring under the unnoticed
yoke of terrible management.
Atlanta is victimized by the genial
incompetent Chuck Tanner, who
knows little about the vices of a four
man rotation and even less about
constructing a lineup which can help
his team score runs.
A worse situation is that in San
Diego, because the Padres have the
talent to win and it's being wasted.
San, Diego is led by the academic
Steve Boros, whose only visible
virtue is that he reads books. When
the year began, San Diego had two
of the finest young players in
baseball in its outfield with Kevin
McReynolds and Carmelo Mar
tinez. Both of them currently reside
on the pine, while Steve Garvey
continues, inexplicably, to play. -
Let's travel now to the American
League. In many respects, it has been
a very compelling year in the Junior
Circuit. Both divisions have good
pennant races going, and everyone
knows about the bumper crop of
rookies. It's been the season of Wally
Joyner, still hitting .308, Jose Can-
r& Amortcan Heart
WEte RGHT1NG FOR YOUR UFE
seco, who now has 94 RBI, and the
splendid Danny Tartabull. Tartabull
has in fact been the consistently best
rookie this year, hitting .284 with 21
homers and 75 RBI in 100 fewer at
bats than Joyner. And he walks.
As for the pennant races, it's still
anyone's guess who will win the AL
East. Boston is now up by SXA, but
Red Sox fans have seen too many
late-season collapses to be confident
about a division title. Five teams are
within 8V4 games, and if the Orioles
get hot, they could be very tough
to stop. Fred Lynn, by the way, has
had a spectacular season for Balti
more, and Earl Weaver has become
thoroughly enamored of his star
In Cleveland, the Tribe has stayed
in the thick of it, and reaped the
benefits at the turnstiles. The Indians
have as fine a starting lineup as' any
team in baseball, and an unbeliev
able crop "of young players. Carter,
Hall, Jacoby and the. rookie Cory
Snyder are going to be good for a
long time to come.
What's left? Oh, the AL West.
Well, California and Texas are
locked up in a fine duel, a fascinating
study in contrasts, as a recent article
in Baseball America discussed.
Bobby Valentine has done a fantastic
job with the Rangers, who have the
weirdest and youngest pitching staff
in baseball and a brilliant shortstop
in Scott Fletcher. The Rangers have
capitalized on the fading act of
Kansas City and the disappointing
performance of Seattle, and have a
fine shot at taking the title. All in
all, it could be a barnburner of a
September, a fitting cap to a really
great baseball summer.
