Tommy Haus, shown here in an early-season Virginia loss, paced the Tar Heels in the national tourney
By EDDY LANDRETH
Staff Writer '
With a phoenix-like performance,
the North Carolina lacrosse team
arose as NCAA champions on May
26 for its third national title in the
past six years.
After a season with three defeats,
including one especially humbling
16-4 loss to Johns Hopkins, people
began to give this team up for dead.
However, UNC did manage to
make the NCAA tournament and
proceeded to avenge its losses by
beating those same teams - Mary
land, Johns Hopkins and Virginia
- on its way to the national title.
So, what type of magic did head
coach Willie Scroggs perform in such,
a dramatic about-face? None,
according to him.
"We just got hot near the end of
the season and started to play our
best lacrosse," Scroggs said. "Last
year we lost in the semi-finals of the
NCAA in sudden-death and on
paper we may have had a better
group than we had this year. We had
more outstanding players, but the
competition was maybe a little
keener last year."
Hot or not, attaining this cham
pionship was no easy task. But,
having to play the teams that had
beaten them earlier was advantage
ous to the sport, Scroggs said.
UI think it's good for lacrosse," he
said, "that we could lose three games
and come back and win the cham
pionship, and it's great to beat the
three teams we lost to in the regular
The Tar Heels first beat Maryland
12-10, which placed them in the semi
finals against two-time defending
champion and top-seeded Johns
Hopkins. They once again rose to
the occasion with a 10-9 overtime
In the finals, fifth-seeded UNC
found itself matched against ACC
rival Virginia, who had won a 11
9 decision at Chapel ' Hill in the
North Carolina's Gary Seivold
played well throughout the tourna
ment, scoring five goals and contri
buting five assists. But his most
important goal came at 2:10 in
overtime against Virginia, to give the
Tar Heels the national
North Carolina's top player in the
tournament may have been All
American defenseman Tom Haus.
Haus held Virginia standout Jeff
Nicklas to one goal. In the season's
previous confrontation, the Cavalier
attackman dominated UNC's
defense with six goals.
"He (Haus) made it tough for me
to play my game," Nicklas said.
"He's probably the best defenseman
I've faced all year." '
Although all championships are
special, this one was different
because the team had played so
poorly earlier in the year, Scroggs
"This year had a lot of significance
because this team was a team that
was kind of counted out," Scroggs
said. "They came together and
played their best lacrosse when the
tournament started. That made it a

Over the summer. Madden
attended school at UNC and accord
ing to Smith, struggled in calculus
while performing capably in his
other courses. As for the decision to
hold Madden out a year, there was
an air of inevitability in Smith's tones
as he talked about the situation.
"Well know better at the end of the
year where he stands academically,"
the coach said. "It could work out
best for Kevin, but it won't be the
best for this year's team."
The consequences for next year's
team are obviously difficult to
estimate at this point, particularly
given Madden's lack of quality
playing time during the NCAAs. But
the decision robs Smith of a number
of options, and may thrust Curtis
Hunter into, a starting role. As for
Madden, it will be a year of wait
and see. Rumors of Madden
transferring have been floating
around, but at this point it appears
he will be staying in Chapel Hill.
"I think he's happy," Smith said.
"He knows what he has to do."
