The Tar Heels are hosting William

schools and this is the team's first
home meet in more than a month.
The last time the Tar Heels were at
home, they had a record of 2-0. They
have gone on to destroy that clean
record with five straight defeats due
at least in part to injuries to vital
body parts like knees and ankles.
With this being the last home meet
before the ACC tournament is held
here at the end of March, something
needs to go right for the gymnasts
to get back in the swing of things.
That's where all those fans who
have not seen a gymnastics meet, and
thus have had deprived childhoods,
come in. At the gymnastics circus

3,500 screaming Tar Heel fans filled
Carmichael to see the meet. It would
be like the basketball games the
Indians' semi-team used to have
against the Tar Heels few years ago.
To help prepare for a meet, here
are a few terms that only the most
dedicated gymnast fan would recog
nize and everyone should be familiar
with before Sunday's meet:
B Bounceback: A gymnastics
move that applies to other sports
when a team has lost many compe
titions and comes back with a strong
performance and a win.
B Dean: Either freshman standout
Kelley. who has had solid perfor
mances all year, or dean Donald
Boulton's daughter, who is a senior
co-captain. Has nothing to do with
B Galvanie: How sixth-year
coach Derek Galvin hopes to streng
then the team to cut down on injuries
and crush weaker teams.

strong and most everything we
swam tonight was a lifetime best
Comfort also noted his team's
strong depth. "We had good
consolation swimming and did
very well in the finals," he added.
"It's going to be a tooth-and-nail
meet, and even though both
Clemson and Virginia beat us in
a dual meet, we still can come
back and win the conference
title." he concluded.
The Championships start
today with trials at noon and
finals at 7:30 p.m. and conclude
Saturday at the same times.
SAC Syndrome: Fear of Car
michael taking away the homecourt
advantage because of its size com
pared with Fetzer. Not to be con
fused with the worry of rich alumni
taking the best seats, which is an
incurable SAC disease.
B William and Mary: A terrible
name for a university. Semi
competition for the Tar Heels.
B Missy Amy: As the Georgia
Satellites would sing about one of
the problems lately: "No Missy, no
Amy until we get rid o' these
injuries." That's Missy Shaffner and
Amy Bincarousky who went down
with injuries in the past weeks.
' With these tew terms relating to
UNC gymnastics, a student can
prepare well for an exciting meet this
weekend. You cannot get the picture
of a gymnastics meet on paper, so
go see one. YouH never know what
kind of exciting things you've been
missing if you don't.

Lax9 tenuis teams
to start '87 seasons
By LANGSTON WERTZ
A relatively quiet week in sport
will blossom into a busy weekend
for the Tar Heels as six different
teams will see action.
The defending NCAA champion
UNC lacrosse team will begin
defense of the title Sunday when
North Carolina takes on the 1986
Division III runnerup, Washington
College, at 2 p.m. at Fetzer Field.
Head coach Willie Scroggs' Tar
Heels are returning 31 of 38 letter
men from last year's Cinderella team
that wrested the championship away
from Virginia in OT, 10-9. The Tar
Heels' main strength should be on
defense where they are returning four
All-America performers. "If you had
to defend a championship, you
would want to do it with the kind
of defense we have returning."
On Saturday, the men's tennis
team will look to begin a successful
1987 campaign, coming off its first
losing season in three decades,
against Georgia Tech.
UNC is returning seven lettermen
and four of the top six singles players
from last year's 14-16 squad (4-3 in
the ACC) and head coach Allen
Norris is enthused about this year's
"Practices generally have been
good and spirited," Norris said. "We
face this year with a little bit of a
different kind of situation than years
past because we have very good
depth. Quite a few people are

1 :30 p.m. at the UNC Tennis Center.
Senior tri-captains Jeff Chambers.
Eddie Stewart and junior David
Pollack make up the triumvirate.
The 34th-ranked Chambers, an
All-America in 1985, had a slightly
disappointing 25-18 campaign in
1986, but still served and volleyed
his way to All-ACC honors.
Stewart must come back from a
pulled stomach muscle which kept
him on the sidelines all last spring.
Stewart was only 4-5 in the fall but
will try to regain the form that earned
him All-ACC honors in 1985. Pol
lack, ranked 60th nationally, is
returning from a 1986 campaign in
which he posted a 32-13 record.
The team will also be in action
Sunday against UNC-Asheville.
Sunday, the UNC gymnasts will
meet Auburn and William & Mary
at 1 p.m. in Carmichael Auditorium.
Also in this busy weekend, the Tar
Heel softball team will start the new
season. With much of last year's 35
13 club back, second-year coach
Donna Papa will watch the 1987
edition host UNC-Wilmington Sat
urday and South Carolina Sunday.
Both contests will begin at noon.
Sylvia Rhyne Hatchell and com
pany, better known as the women's
basketball team, will take on Georgia
Tech in the ACC tournament. UNC.
18-8 overall and 9-5 in the ACC, is
seeded third. Georgia Tech is seeded
sixth and is 14-12. 5-9.
