The final point is scored and everyone rushes on to the court, hugging each other. Make that 1,001 times. When Ann Schildmeyer served an ace at 15-14, the North Carolina volleyball team replayed that scene. The Tar Heels won the ACC title with a four-set victory over N.C. State Monday night in Heisman Gymna sium on the Georgia Tech campus. The scores were 4-15, 15-6 15-11, 16 14. The win marked UNC's second significant victory over State in as many days and satisfied the Tar Heels' taste for revenge. In their last meeting, the Wolfpack soundly beat UNC in four sets. But there would not be a replay this time. State opened a 14-12 lead late in the fourth game, trying to force a fifth and deciding game. UNC staved off game point when Liz Berg (13 kills, 16 dinks, three block assists) spiked through a State block for the side- This women's soccer The Tar Heels did it again, winning their third consecutive women's soccer national championship and the sixth one in seven years, led by Shannon "Hat-Trick" Higgins and a defense that was as stingy as Scrooge. Sunday's victory, however, was especially sweet. "That was the best feeling after winning a national championship IVe ever had," an exuberant Anson Dorrance said following the Tar Heels' 4-1 triumph over the N.C. State Wolfpack. There are a couple of reasons why this one was important: The Home Factor UNC hosted the NCAA Final Four, which fea tured the Pack and Cal-Berkeley in Saturday's first match and then the Tar Heels against the University of Wisconsin in the second semifinal. Although the weather was particu larly nasty Saturday, with tempera tures hovering barely above 50 degrees, that didn't hamper the intensity of the four teams. State edged Berkeley, 1-0, and the Tar Heels beat the Badgers, 3-0, to propel them into the finals. For Sunday's game, the skies cleared (briefly), the temperatures soared into the 70s, and a crowd of 3,500 gathered to see the local teams battle it out. And although it was on the Tar Heels' home turf, more than a few faithful from North Raleigh made the arduous 30-minute drive to Chapel Hill to provide the Pack with support. It was the largest crowd to see a women's soccer game in UNC his tory. Dorrance said the size of the crowd definitely helped get his team into the game. The Revenge Factor These two teams, State and UNC, hate each other.

Senior Andrea Wells scored two of the most important points in her career, booming spikes on the next two plays to tie it. The teams struggled for control and the Wolfpack's Patty Lake gave UNC a 15-14 lead when her spike sailed long. Five serves later Schild meyer aced to end it and give the Tar Heels the title. For UNC coach Peggy Bradley Doppes, it was her first title in her five years of coaching. "It's unbelievable!" she said. "It got to a point where I felt like we'd worked so hard and the kids had gone so far that we were going to do it. I'm so proud of them. I'm glad they did it. "This is my first class of recruiting, and they're now seniors. They deserve it." The Tar Heels looked like anything but the ACC's first team in the opening game. UNC was timid and had a terrible case of the jitters. Service errors and mistakes with their serve-receives cost North Carolina dearly, as State took the first game 15-4. John Bland Staff Writer winning the ACC championship in a shootout a couple of weeks ago. No wonder it was such a rough game. UNC definitely had revenge as a motive. The National TV Factor That's right, folks. Tune in to ESPN on Dec. 2 and see if you can pick yourself out of the crowd. All in all, this championship game was one hell of a contest, and this is coming from a guy who thinks soccer is about as exciting as fly fishing. Physical?

Two Sharon German kills, a State hitting error and a Berg service ace put UNC in front 4-0, forcing State to call time out. . This was UNC's game though, and the State time out could not stop the Tar Heels. Improved hitting and a lift by freshman AH Sommerstad pushed UNC to a 15-6 win in Game 2. "Ali played tremendously," Bradley-Doppes said. "She stopped their middle offense and that really helped us open up our middle attack. She played very cool and calm, and that really helped our right- and left side hitters." The biggest thing Sommerstad did was help control State's Volire Tisdale, who was named the ACC player of the year. Stopping her is like stopping Michael Jordan, just keeping them from controlling the game is enough. "We practiced a defense designed to stop her," Bradley-Doppes said. "We tried to make her hit the ball title was extra sweet conference afterwards, visible bruises and scratches, limps and tired eyes showed the price of playing at full intensity for 80 minutes. With the heated rivalry between these two teams, a couple of notable defensive matchups proved exciting to watch: The Henry-Hooper Showdown This matchup pitted UNC's All America back Lori Henry against State's probable All-America, Char maine Hooper, a sophomore. Henry became Hooper's shadow for most of the game, shutting her down and frustrating her. State's usually fast paced game was effectively slowed as a partial result of Henry's physical play. The Enforcers The Heels' Henry, Carla Werden and Laura Boone were The Enforcers in Sun day's game, with Werden providing the last line of defense in case something slipped past Henry or Boone, which was extremely rare.

We made her hit across the court, a much easier ball to dig." The newly designed defense worked, and worked well. UNC outdigged State, 116-92, and forced the Wolfpack to hit .243 compared to the Tar Heels' .321 average. German led UNC with 26 digs, followed by Sherri Vogel's 22. While Tisdale (23 kills, 1 8 digs) was harnessed by a great defense, UNC unleashed its lethal hitters German and Wells. They dominated the way Tisdale was expected to. Wells finished with a team-leading 32 kills, most of which were powerful spikes. German, too, spiked the Pack into oblivion. Her 6-foot frame scored 23 kills and walked away with the ACC Tournament Most Valuable Player award. But individual awards aside, it was a team effort that beat State. And it will take another team effort to advance in the NCAAs, as the Tar Heels earned the ACC's automatic bid by winning the title. fact, the only Wolfpack score came on a penalty kick after Werden slide tackled Hooper in a last-ditch def ensive effort. But this was not a game that focused solely on defense. All year the Heels had been effec tive at keeping the ball on the offensive half of the field, and, for the most part, they did it again. And seniors Birthe Hegstad and Wendy Gebauer, following a brilliant day against Wisconsin on Saturday, used their playoff experience and speed to their advantage. ' But the real story of the final was most definitely the three-goal day of "Hat-Trick," who was named the offensive MVP of the tournament' For the seniors Gebauer, Heg stad, Henry and goalie Anne Sherow this victory was also especially sweet. UNC had lost the champion ship their freshman year, in 1985 to George Mason, but this year they went out in style. 4; EARN CASH. Work 2-4 hoursweek. Help deliver the Village Advocate.
