When the snow hits the ground,
Sherri Sowers hits the ski slopes.
Sowers, a junior from Winston
Salem, is the captain of UNC's
recently revived ski team, which has
more than doubled in interested
participants since last year.
For the past two years, Sowers has
spent most of her out-of-class hours
reorganizing and sparking interest in
both the ski team and the UNC Ski
Club. The extracurricular efforts
have begun to pay off.
"We just had an organizational
meeting of the ski club and ISO
people showed up," Sowers said.
uSixty-four of those people stayed
after and expressed interest in being
on the team."
Last year Sowers said the team
had just enough members for com
petition and racing. This year will
be the first time cuts will have to
Sowers' brother managed to pull
a team of 20 skiers together to
represent the University before he
graduated in 1982. When Sowers
arrived in 1984, she picked up where
her brother left off.
As former president of the ski club
and captain of the ski team, Sowers
has gained knowledge beyond school

Residents tired of mud
By NANCY HARRINGTON
Ehringhaus residents won't have
to play slip-n-slide on rainy days
while walking to class by Boshamer
Stadium if residence hall officials
have their way.
The path that leads from Ehring
haus to campus is usually muddy
because of drainage from the base
ball field, and water washes down
the hill from Ehringhaus residence
hall, according to Gary Johnson,
Ehringhaus area director.
"It's pretty bad," said Lisa Waller,
a freshman Ehringhaus resident.
"Your feet get really muddy."
"It's been an area of concern to
the (Ehringhaus) government and
the housing department," Johnson
said. "You generally have to walk
through water or around it to get
Neal Keene, Ehringhaus gover
nor, said he had been working with
the housing department and they
plan to tour the area to decide how
to deal with the problem.
"Everyone who uses it complains,"
Keene said. "It's literally under three
feet of water (in places). And when
you walk off the path and on the
grass, the place is also muddy."
Keene said the problem in getting
the area fixed is the time element.
organizing, petitioning for funds,
planning trips, arranging reserva
tions for our team at ski resorts,
holding try-outs and time trials,"
Petitioning for funds from the
University's Athletic Association
taught Sowers about the allotment
of sports funds.
She walked into the athletic
director's office believing the sports
program had a plentiful supply of
available money from alumni and
other contributions. She left with a
"The athletic director told me up
front there would be no money right
away for the team," Sowers said. "It
takes a million dollars a year just
for upkeep of the Student Activities
Center, so money isnt overflowing."
Because they are not funded by
the athletic association, the ski team
is not a varsity team.
Sowers' experience on the slopes
began at age four. Sowers whole
family went to Beech Mountain Ski
Resort when it opened to learn to
ski. She has been skiing ever since.
Housing officials say they won't be
able to take care of the problem until
next year because of other work
Keene said fixing the basin
shouldn't take more than a week.
"They (the housing department)
were saying that it would take a
year," he said. "We're trying to get
it done by Christmas."
Matt Mlekush of the physical
department said his division had not
been given a work order for the area.
If there was a problem, a drain catch
basin would probably be installed,

While in high school, Sowers
received coaching and raced through
the United States Ski Association for
F1S (International Federation of
Skiing) points. Skiers with low FIS
points are better than those with high
FIS points. Improving skiers race
against . lower FIS-point skiers to
improve their times and skills.
Sowers traveled to Vermont,
where she raced in the Eastern Elite
Series, and to Maine to race in the
Eastern Regionals. In Maine,
members of the United States Ski
Team were present. Sowers said
racing with the very low FIS-point
skiers there greatly improved her
During her senior year in high
school, Sowers was a professional ski
instructor at Beech Mountain. She
spent weekends at the slopes, where
she taught classes on Saturdays,
Saturday nights and Sundays.
During her first year at UNC,
Sowers and the women's ski team
received first place in the Southeast
ern Collegiate Ski Conference, and
the conference sent them to Idaho
for the nationals.
Last year, the women's team was
third in the ski conference and went
to the Mid-Atlantic Regionals in
The team did not qualify for the
national competition, but Sowers
qualified individually. Without a
team or coach and with her own
funds, she went to Killington, West

"I was really happy, because most
of those girls train every day, have
four pairs of skis, a coach, lots of
sponsors and a lot of school sup
port," Sowers said.
Sowers said skiing, like other
sports, is becoming more fine-tuned.
The competitive skiers are getting
younger, with 17- and 18-year-olds
competing internationally, she said.
Although skiing is popular in the
South, the big money and talent are
found up North, Sowers said.
She said college teams from the
North spend more time on the snow.
Sowers is planning two short road
trips to ski locations for team
tryouts. After tryouts, the team gets
little slope time. ,
Staying in shape off the slopes is
important, Sowers said. Skiing
works on virtually all the body
muscles, so it is important to keep
the muscles working all the time.
Sowers cycles and lifts weights
several times a week.
Sowers is excited to have been a
part of the growth of the ski team.
"I want it to keep going. I feel
successful and when I graduate, I will
have learned so much," Sowers said.
Sowers does not plan to stop
skiing after college. She enjoyed
teaching, and said if she lives near
ski slopes, she would consider
