foir U.. javelin trials
By GINGER JONAS
UNC senior Sherrie
couldn't have asked for a better
Saturday. Competing in her final
home track meet, MacKinney not
only broke her own school record in
the javelin, but also qualified for the
NCAA meet and the Olympic trials
in the process.
"I'm beyond words right now," she
said after the throw of 174-8. "This
is something IVe been working for
since my freshman year."
In that initial season, MacKinney
was the 1984 ACC javelin champion,
However, she missed the entire 1986-
87 season due to a knee injury.
MacKinney said during that time
she never quit setting goals.
"I had a lot to prove to myself this
year," she said. "Going into my last
throw today 1 knew I had to relax.
As soon as it left my hand, I knew
it would be a good throw."
UNC throwing events coach Jeff
Gorski was pleased with MacKm-
I can't say that it's a surprise
because she's thrown that far or close
to it in practice," he said. "We've
assumed that the Olympic trials were
in her reach. Right now she's one of
the outstanding throws in the nation."
MacKinney was excited because
her brother, Joe, was able to attend
the meet. According to Sherrie, he
is responsible for her throwing ability.
"He was the one who got me out
in the back yard and made me throw
baseballs when we were younger, she
said. "He never threw the javelin
himself, but he made me work when
I was younger and contributed to my
MacKinney and other UNC track
team members competed in the first
State Collegiate meet on Fetzer Field.
The Tar Heel team was not in full
force, though, since some runners
were competing in Austin, Texas at
the Texas Relays.

finished second Saturday with a
throw of 157-9. The freshman qual

From staff reports
While many UNC students were
basking in the delight of a triple-shot
weekend of partying, partying and
more partying, a laudable portion of
the campus community was traveling
off to faraway towns in search of the
best in collegiate athletic competition.

Tar Heels Tee Burton and Neal

A perfectly clear day was then
clouded, as Clemson started off
with a flurry and held on to nip
the Tar Heels, 5-4.

record to 16-8, with only one
Clemson's No. 1 player, Cathy
Hofer, withstood a rugged first set
from her Tar Heel counterpart,
Ann Stephenson, before posting a
7-5, 6-0 victory. The Tar Heels
didn't find things much easier from
there, dropping three of the next
four singles matches.
At the No. 2 spot UNC's Gina
Goblirsch could never really get
into the match and fell 6-2, 6-2
to Pam Menne. Spencer Barnes
gave UNC its first victory of the
day, 7-5, 6-4 over Laurie Stephan
at No. 3.
Tiger victories ensued at the
fourth and fifth spots, with Nicole
Stafford defeating UNC's Landis
Cox 6-3, 7-6 and Diana Von
Gulick downing Dana Kanell 7
"The singles matches could have
gone either way," Tar Heel coach
Kitty Harrison said. "We were in
every match except maybe No. 2,
where Gina simply had an off day.
Still, it is hard to take when it
seems that all of the close ones go
against you." "

holes. Sullivan shot a two-under 70,
while Jim Sowerwine pulled into the
clubhouse with a 71.
After a sluggish start, the team as
a whole took control with an eight-under-par
total on the back nine, and
a two-under for the day.
"I wrote down something this
morning in my office that is inter

But UNC's extraordinary back-
nine play left them a comfortable
margin of error at the end. No one
would steal the Tar Heels' thunder.
Brouse was very happy with the
performance of his charges. "I think
we were just happy to come out
ahead," he said as he presented the
trophies. "We got off to a slow start,
but our guys hung in there, and I'm
very proud of them,
"WeVe really been up and down
this year. We were in contention a
couple times and haven't really
responded, but today they certainly

going to be short-lived, with the ACC

"I'm not very confident at all, when
I'm looking at three top five teams
in Wake Forest, Clemson and Geor
gia Tech. I just hope we can go up
there and not get blown away, and
make a respectable showing."
UNC's Diana McCarthy took on
Julie Davis to keep the Tar Heels'
hopes of victory alive. McCarthy
apparently had troubles with the
heat and dropped the first set 7
5. However the Boston area native
shrugged off the Southern humid
ity and held on to win the second
set 7-6 after a tiebreaker.
Using pinpoint groundstrokes,
which were superior to those of
her opponent, McCarthy won the
majority of the key points in the
third and final set to post a 5-7,
7-6, 7-5 victory and keep UNC in
the overall match.
"Diana is a fighter," Harrison
said. "She struggled with a per
sistent opponent and weather to
which she is somewhat unaccus
tomed. Despite the inspiring play of
McCarthy, UNC went into the
doubles action requiring victories
in each of the three matches to
win overall. Still, the team seemed
confident about its chances and
went into the action fully intending
to pull the match out.
When the No. 1 and 2 doubles
each posted first-set victories, the
comeback appeared near comple
tion. Yet, at the No. 3 spot, despite
the fact Vanessa Ames was filling
in quite admirably for the phys
ically and emotionally expended
McCarthy, the Clemson tandem
of Hofer and Von Gulick was just
too tough and clinched the overall
match with a 6-1, 6-2 ripping of
Stephenson and Ames.
UNC did manage victories at
the other two doubles spots to
tighten the final match score, as
Barnes and Goblirsch defeated
Clemson's Menne and Stephan 6
4, 3-6, 6-4 at No. 1, and Cox and
