The Daily Tar Heel Wednesday, April 12, 19897
By BETHANY LITTON
' DURHAM There's something
to be said for seeing a project through
to the end.
It's no wonder John Thoden was
tired after the UNC baseball game
against Duke Tuesday. . He pitched
the entire game on only two days rest,
leading the Tar Heels to a 4-2 win
over the Blue Devils.
As if that's not enough, Thoden
gave up just four hits, and, along with
a solid defense, held Duke scoreless
until the bottom of the ninth inning.
It was Thoden's fifth complete
game this season. He leads the ACC
in innings pitched with 71. In those

Thoden said. Thoden gave credit to
UNC's defensive players, who exe

seventh and eighth innings, for
containing the Duke batters. "(The)
defense was just outstanding."
The first five innings were largely

Stephenson fights back from
injury, returns to action
By ERIC WAGNON
Senior tennis tri-captain Ann
Stephenson can still detail the scena
rio surrounding her ankle injury. "I
was ahead in the third set when
tragedy occurred," Stephenson said,
looking back to her match at Brigham
Young on March 17.
"It was my ad, and she hit me a
wide forehand, and I hit a forehand,
so the whole court was open,"
Stephenson described. "I was ready
to move to the backhand, but I saw
her hit me another forehand. So my
body weight was going that way, but
my foot just came back this way, and
it just rolled over. It snapped three
times. It was so distinct."
Stephenson, of Columbia, Mo.,
had never before suffered a serious
injury in her career. The doctor told
her that the severity of her sprain was
a 2.9 on a scale of one to three. The
initial prognosis was that she would
be off the court for at least a month.
Stephenson said that she didn't
need a doctor to tell that her injury
was serious. "Not only was it painful,"
she said. "But a lot of things went
through my mind, like whether I was
going to get to play some more. We
hadn't gotten into the ACC yet, and
I felt like the team could do a lot.
Stephenson, a three-year letter
man, entered her senior season
ranked 38th in the national collegiate
singles poll and eighth in the Sou
theast region. Stephenson was enthu
siastic about her last year as a Tar
Heel, because she felt that her junior
year had been successful, based on
her qualifying for the NCAAs.
"It gave me a lot of confidence,"
Stephenson said. "It was a turn
maybe in college tennis for me,
because I was just kind of going
through the motions. Then, my game
turned around. I was much stronger.

Prior to her ankle injury, Stephen
son was on track for a very successful
season with an undefeated string on
the team's trip to California over
spring break. The Tar Heels' oppo
nents on the trip, UC-Irvine, San
Diego and San Diego State, were all
highly competitive squads.
Although she played in the number
three singles position, rather than her
accustomed number one slot, Ste
phenson returned to action last
Friday against Miami to defeat Kerri
Reiter, 6-3, 6-2. After that victory,
Stephenson felt fairly confident about
a smooth return to the court. On
Saturday, Stephenson played against
Kentucky's Caroline Knudten. After
losing 6-2, 6-2, Stephenson said that
the strain of back-to-back matches
was too much for her ankle.

Roberts said he was upset with
himself when Duke narrowed the
margin in the ninth. "I did a very poor
job of coaching in the ninth, offen
sively," he said. "We should have put
more runs on the board."
He said the team's overall hitting
is improving, but could still be better
in the clutch. "We hit the ball hard,
but we need to hit the ball more
consistently hard, with runners in
scoring position," he added.

Although she wore a brace during
the match, Stephenson added that she
may have reinjured the ankle during
the third set. Her doctor's diagnosis
on Monday was that she may have
torn some of the scar tissue from the
old injury. Stephenson, however, is
planning to play today at 2:30 against
N.C. State at the UNC Tennis Center.
Stephenson said she is looking
forward to putting this setback
behind her and fully resuming com

she enjoyed the experience so much
that it should figure into her post

spirit, I'm going to try to play
