Golf's Peterson combines fun
and hard work to lead Heels
By JEFF DOYLE
Katie Peterson came to UNC to
,play golf and to enjoy the North
' Carolina weather.
: Well, the weather this spring has
! been highly erratic. But Peterson's
; performance on the golf course has
; been consistently excellent.
! MI think that I came to Carolina
! because I was so sick of the hot
I weather in Florida," Peterson said.
! "I have sweaters now."
Peterson praised the women's golf
program for her development. "I
think it has been really great for me
personally," she said.
Peterson has been equally great for
A senior from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.,
j she has been an important part of
the women's golf team since her
I freshman season, when she finished
in the top three in three tournaments
she played in. However, Peterson said
j her scores in her first three years often
! varied greatly from game to game.
During those first three seasons as
a Tar Heel, Peterson averaged 76.6
strokes per eighteen holes. This
reflected the problems she had
putting together good rounds every
This season, Peterson has a team-
low stroke average of 74.4, the best
of her collegiate career.
"IVe been working on my wedge
play and my putting," Peterson said
of the improvement in her game, "but
my putting is still not what I would
like it to be."
The extra work is showing in
Peterson's tournament finishes. Of
the four tournaments the Tar Heels
have played this semester, she has
been the top finisher twice.
Tennis crushes Duke,
gives men momentum
for ACC tournament
By DAVID J. KUPSTAS
.-It's not too hard to get yourself
psyched up for an important ACC
game in any sport, especially when
a higher tournament seed is on the
line. Sr . - .
"But when the other Team is Duke
in the last ACC contest, getting
pumped up is twice as easy if you're
;a man in Carolina Blue.
' The Blue Devil tennis team and the
Tar Heels were tied for third in the
ACC with 4-2 records entering
yesterday's match at the UNC tennis
center. North Carolina came out of
the dressing room fired up as they
spanked Duke 7-2 and finished in sole
possession of third place.
If we had been last, or if Duke
had been last, it was still Duke vs.
Carolina," said UNC coach Allen
Morris, noting the importance of the
rivalry. "It was a neighborhood
What was expected to be a close
match was wrapped up by the Tar
Heels in singles play. At number one,
UNC senior co-captain David Pol
lack made a slight change in game
plan as he topped 61st-ranked Mark
Mance 7-6 (7-1), 6-3.
v. Pollack, who is now 15-7 this
spring, came to the net more and was
"more aggressive than usual. "I think
J . surprised him with some of the
things I did," he said. "He was looking
,for me to sit back behind the baseline
.and rally, and instead I was going
.for shots. I think that's why I jumped
out to such a big lead."
Mance rallied from a 5-2 first-set
deficit to force a tiebreaker. Pollack
then took control by winning the
tiebreaker 7-1 and the next set 6-3.
At number three, treshman Bryan
Jones (19-3) had a completely differ
ent strategy than Pollack in his 6-2,
.6-4 win over Geoff Grant, ranked
69th nationally by the ITC A. Jones face Georgia Tech. The Tar Heels still

I knew basically he was a back-
courter," Jones said. I just figured
that if I made him hit enough balls,

Second-seeded co-captain Don
Johnson won the first set easily over
iCeith Kambourian but had to fight
him off in the second for a 6-2, 7

serve twice and broke Kambourian

Peterson's third place ranking in
the NCAA computer rankings is the
highest ever for a UNC women's
five years ago that Katie
a top player " UNC head
coach Dot Gunnells said. "She's more
consistent now, and that's hard to do
for any golfer."
Peterson's first-place finish in the
Duke Spring Invitational in April led
the lOth-ranked Tar Heels to a team
victory over Tulsa, Arizona and
Southern Cal all ranked among
the NCAA's top five teams.
The surprise victory scared the
other teams and has given the Tar
Heels added confidence as they
approach the NCAA Tournament, to
be held May 24-27 at Stanford,
"We really believe, that if we play
once in between to seal the victory.
UNC's Thomas Tanner (13-7)
defeated Rob Cantu 7-6 (8-6), 6-3,
and Jimmy Weilbaecher (14-7) over
came Craig Shelburne 6-3, 7-6 (7-4).
Duke's only singles win was fourth
seed Jason RubeU's 6-3, 6-0 decision
over Andre Janasik.
All of North Carolina's five singles
wins ended within about 20 minutes
of each other, and the excitement that
quickly built up from both the team
and the fans spilled over into the
Pollack and Johnson carried
momentum from their big singles
wins and handled the eleventh-ranked
team of Rubell and Kambourian 6
7 (3-7), 6-3, 6-3. The UNC tandem
had a chance to wrap up the first set
on double set points, but a few bad
breaks gave the set to Duke.
Jones notched his second win of
the day by teaming with fellow
freshman Joe Frierson for a 6-2, 3
6, 6-4 win against Cantu and Shel
burne in number three doubles. Since
becoming partners midway through
Fnerson and Jones are
a perfect 6-0.
Mance and Grant
avenged their singles losses as they
came back to knock off Janasik and
Weilbaecher 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 in the
second seeded match.
The win moves the Tar Heels'
overall record to 15-7. Morris has
seen quite a bit of progress in his
team, noting the six-game trip to
California during spring break as a
turning point. UNC has won ten of
its last twelve, losing only at Georgia
Tech and Clemson last weekend.
"I think they've improved," Morris
said. "I think the weakness that we
had early on was doubles, and I think
the doubles have improved."
The ACC Tournament gets under
way next Friday in Clemson. UNC
will meet Wake Forest in the opening
round with the winner to probably
On Saturday, UNC will face Vir-
ginia Tech at 1:30. The Hokies have
given Virginia a tough match already
this year, and Morris feels they could
be trouble if the top half of the Tech
lineup is playing well.

at 1:00. "They're really good," Morris
said. "Well have to play extremely,

well, we could beat any team in the
nation," Peterson said. An added plus
for the team, Peterson said, is that
its players are much closer than they
have been in the past. "I think that
we really care about each other,"
Peterson has been a great factor
in fostering this unity, senior team
mate Suzy McGuire said.
"Katie doesn't just think about
herself," McGuire said. "When she
gets through with a round that she
is leading, she is not concerned about
"She always wants to find out how
everyone else has done." The
attitude that she displays is important
to Peterson both in her game
strategy and in the image she wants
to project. "I kind of stay on one
emotional level," Peterson said.
Letting a single bad shot bother her
for longer than a minute might throw
off her entire performance in the
round, Peterson said.
Peterson said that she wants people
to see her enjoy the game of golf. The
opportunity to travel and meet people
has played a major role in keeping
golf fun for her.
"Golf has been so wonderful,"
Peterson said. "When golf becomes
work, actual work that you dread
doing, you shouldn't do it anymore."
Golf is still fun for Peterson, and
she said she plans to try her hand
in the LPGA after she graduates from
"If I'm not good enough, then at
least I will know," Peterson said. "I
don't want to look back 10 years from
now and wonder what could have
been," she said.
As a child, Peterson said that she
played soccer and softball as well as
golf. Softball was Peterson's big love,
she said, but she decided that she
could go further with golf, both
during and after college. Gunnells
agreed with Peterson. "She has the
game to be a professional if she wants
to do that," Gunnells said.
Peterson said that she has never
regretted choosing golf despite the
time demands that practicing puts
upon her. However, missing classes
because of golf does bother Peterson
"The tournaments are fun, but
when you get back to class, you kind
of wish you had been there," Peterson

The North Carolina softball
team made up for some lost time
Thursday afternoon, splitting a
double-header with the Virginia
Cavaliers at Finley Field. The Tar
Heels nipped the Wahoos 1-0 in
the first game but dropped the

UNC coach Donna Papa was
happy with the Tar Heels' opening
game win over the South Region's
"First game, I was very pleased.
I think both teams played well and
put pressure on one another," Papa
said. "We got the hit at the key .
time and won the game."
That key time came in the
bottom of the sixth inning.
UNC's Lisa McGloin led off the
inning with a double and Papa sent
Julie CShields in to pinch-run.
Theresa Buscemi pushed a sacrifice
bunt down the first-base side to
advance CShields to third and
Vicki Parrott looped a single into

It was all the offense North
Carolina needed as Tracy Brower
picked up her 14th victory and
Though the run in the sixth
broke the scoreless tie, both teams
had early opportunites to score.
UNC's early scoring chance
came in the first inning when
Cavalier errors put Buscemi and
Parrott on second and first with
no outs. UVA squelched the rally
by getting three outs on a liner, a
pickoff and a strikeout.
Virginia came back in the top
of the second with back-to-back
singles by Kim Furphy and Yvonne
Merkel. A sacrifice bunt advanced
Furphy to third but a short fly ball
to left and a fly ball to center kept
the Wahoos from scoring.
In the second game, Virgina took
advantage of four Tar Heel errors
in the third inning, sending 10
batters to the plate and scoring four
runs. Virginia wouldn't score again,
but it was enough as the Cavs won
"The second game, I'm disap
