Two out of three ain't
bad for fencing teams
By LAURA GRIMMER
The North Carolina fencing
team went two for three in Fetzer
Gym this past weekend at home
against Virginia, the Florida
Institute of Technology and
fencing super-giant Columbia.
Both the men's and women's
teams had impressive wins over
the Cavaliers and FIT, and both
met crushing defeats on the foils,
epees and sabres of preseason
No. I Columbia.
In men's foil, the starting team
of Felix Dover, Chris Kaiser,
Dave Schmidt and Phil Williams
was crushed by Columbia 8-1.
The foilsmen recovered and
defeated Virginia 7-2, but lost to
FIT by a close margin.
In men's epee, Ravi Sawhney,
Jamal Reimer and Pete Farquhar
were also handed a loss against
Columbia, 8-1. The epee team
came back and to whip Virginia

The Tar Heel indoor track team
set three school records this past
weekend ii the Eastman Kodak
Invitational in Johnson City, Tenn.
Brad Sullivan won the collegiate 60
meter dash with an NCAA
qualifying time of 6.2 seconds, and
in the semifinals, set a school best
by winning in 6.17..
Freshman Mia Pollard finished
second in the 600-yard run with a
half, along with a couple of strictly
street ball bricks.
"Drummond played a good game,
ahd he looked like he was in the
flow," Smith said. "You try to force
him into some bad shots, and I think
I did. He made some tough ones,
and he missed some bad ones."
Bolton struggled early on, but
finished with 22 points. That
included a triad of three pointers and
nine of 10 free throws. But ironically
enough, it was Bolton who had the
key miscues during the game's two
The first of those stretches came
midway through the first half. After
a Teviin Binns follow of a Walker
Lambiotte miss gave State its last
lead of the game at 25-23, the
Wolfpack went eight straight posses
sions without scoring. Included in
that run of futility was a sequence
where Bolton turned the ball over,
put up an airball and then turned
the ball Over again.
While State's engine began cough
ing fitfully, the Tar Heels' was
moving into high gear. Fittingly
enough, it was Reid who began the
run which catapulted UNC into the
catbird seat, as he scored on a layup
and then made both ends of a one-and-one.
UNC led 27-25, and never
"J.R.'s offensive play was his best
to date," Dean Smith said. "We were
able to get the ball inside and he was
able to to score. He did a good job

The combined and final scores
of the men's action was UNC
Columbia, 4-23; UNC-Virginia
22-5; and UNC-FIT, 16-11.
The women's team followed the
trail set by the men with a loss
and two big wins.
Columbia, whose top-ranked
woman is also the No. 1 foil
fencer on the U.S. Olympic team,
dealt the Tar Heels a 12-4 defeat.
The starting team of Nhi Lan Le,
Lorraine Leigh, Alicia Foster and
Cheryl Gates were unable to
overcome this handicap, coupled
with the fact that Columbia's
other starters are ranked among
the top ten juniors in the nation.
The UNC women moved on to
swipe the Lady Cavaliers 12-4,
and severely puncture FIT, 1 5-1.
"I was a little disappointed with
our performance over Colum
bia," coach Ron Miller said. wWe
fenced strongly but not very well.
Even so, despite their top ranking,
we were still aggressive and
"Overall, I'm very pleased with
the team's fight and spirit," Miller
said. "It's a good sign for the
balance of the season."
Four other Tar Heels reached
double figures in scoring. Liza
Donnell had 16 points, Tia Poindex
ter 15, Kathy Wilson 12 and Marlene

time of 1:20.73. Also, the two-mile
relay team of Johan Boakes, Dave
Fuhrmann, Clive Harriott and Kyle
Lowe ran 7:32.6 for sixth place and
another UNC record.
In other sporting action, the men's
and women's swim teams both lost
on the road to Clemson. The women
were defeated by the sixth-ranked
Tigers 156-100, while the men lost
122'2 to 94'2.

on the boards, too. This was prob
ably his best performance."
With five minutes to go in the half,
a Kenny Smith 22-foot bomb put
UNC up by 10, and the Tar Heels
sprinted to a 53-38 halftime lead.
Wolf scored UNC's last eight points
in the surge.
The Wolfpack, though, responded
by coming out at halftime anxious
for the open road of the transition
game. Early in the half, Drummond 1
pulled up on the fastbreak and stuck
a jumper to move State within nine.
After Avie Lester and Joe Wolf
traded inside hoops, Vinny Del
Negro made a fine slashing move to
spring himself for a transition layup,
and Mike Giomi added a fast break
basket to cut UNC's lead to seven
at 61-54. Dean Smith called timeout
to stem the bleeding.
The Wolfpack, though, got the
ball back, and had a chance to get
within five. But Bolton bricked an
easy layup, and Reid scored inside. !
A minute later, Kenny Smith con
verted a four-point play to put the
Tar Heels up by 13. From that point,
UNC no longer had to glance in its
rear-view mirror, as it was a Kerouac
coast to the final gun.
The last word on the game should
belong to the man who defined it.
"There aren't too many teams that
can hang with us on the boards,"
Reid said. "And when we come out
and execute and do the things we
want to do, we're one of the better
teams in the country."

michael Auditorium. Tonight.
The two best teams in the ACC,
the 1 lth-ranked grapplers from N.C.
State and the fifth-ranked Tar Heel
squad face off at 7:30 p.m. in a rivalry
that has traditionally been billed as
the best matchup in the South.
This year's contest should be no
different. But to give a feeling of the
thrills the match has provided in the
past, here's a short recap of the
matches fought in the last few years.
1984: The Wolfpack won the first
match in Raleigh by a score of 21
12. UNC hosted the second match
and won a 20-16 decision that was
decided on a last-second pin in the
190-lb. weight class.
1985: In the first contest, N.C.
State took advantage of its talent in
the heavier weight classes to slip by
the Tar Heels, 19-18. In that match,
both teams were penalized one point
from the final score for unsports
manlike conduct. The second match
was not as close, as the Wolfpack

Yes, of course, Herman Reid Jr.
was the highlight star of the hard
wood in North Carolina's victory
over N.C State. With 31 points and
13 rebounds in 29 minutes, how
could it be otherwise?
Oh, but the sideline show put on
by Wolfpack coach Jim Valvano, if
not as noticeable, was at least as fun
to watch. He totaled one near
technical, one split pair of trousers,
one eyeball-to-eyeball argument and
numerous bodily contortions in 40
minutes for the benefit of a national
For the benefit of those who
concentrated on J.R.'s exploits, here
is a verbal home movie about Coach
Vs first trip to the Smith Center,
and his first matchup with Mr. Reid.
4:48 into the game: Mike Giomi
gets called for charging at the tail
end of a fastbreak. Valvano is
overcome by the call, falling and
sliding on his back with arms and
legs flailing. The move costs Valvano
a seam in the seat of his pants.
It seems to cost him more a few
seconds later, when referee Lenny
Wirtz signalled a technical foul
against Valvano for being out of the
coach's box. But the Wolfpack
coach, screaming into Wirtz's face
from a distance of eight millimeters,
successfully argues that a television
timeout had been called, giving him
free reign to be on the court.
5:03 into the game: N.C. State's

hoop over Curti Hunter. Hunter

The other top seed is Rob Koll
at 158. Only a junior, Koll has
already been named to the All
America team twice. He has lost only
one match this year, compiling a
-record of 28-1.
Other wrestlers who should see

gets called for blocking as the ball
goes through the net. Valvano,
determined to make known his
opinion that the basket should
count, dramatically waves his whole
upper bddy straight up and down
with two fingers extended.
9:08 into the game: Reid scores
on an easy layup off an alley oop
pass. Valvano rolls his eyes back in
his head and throws a towel into the
air in disgust.
14:55 into the game: Teviin Binns
gets called for a reach-in foul on
Reid. Coach V pleads the case for
his player on his hands and knees.
"One hell of a call, Lenny," he opines

he runs back down the court and
shrugs. "What can you do?" he
10:10 into the second half: Kenny
Smith misses the front end of an one-and-one.
Reid gets the rebound and
puts it back in. Valvano reacts to
the play by leaving his seat and
displaying every inch of his approx
imately 10-inch vertical jump.
Postgame interview: Coach V's
gravel voice, considerably harsher
than that of Dean Smith, causes the
microphone in the press room (which
doubles as the Carolina Memorabi
lia room) to scream with feedback.
"Thirty-eight million dollars and
look at the sound system they have,
jeez. Hey, when does Dean's movie
come on? Have I missed it?"
The top performers for Bob
Guzzo's Wolfpack are Scott Turner
at 150 and Marc Sodano at 126.
You know you didn't get all those
anti-Wolfpack emotions out of your
system on Sunday. Don't miss this
opportunity to get up and scream
your lungs out youVe got nothing
better to do.
