Oth-ranked wrestlers aim
As winter approaches another
perennial top 10 UNC athletic team
is about to awaken.
NO! NO! NO! The basketball tab
is tomorrow. We are referring to the
1989-90 Tar Heel wrestling team,
which is ranked 1 0th in the nation for
UNC head coach Bill Lam has
been directing the Tar Heel matmen
for 16 seasons and has a 205-66-3
record, including 16 consecutive
winning season. Of course, that
means the Tar Heels have never had
a losing season under coach Lam.
Not bad, huh?
"I'm excited about the year," Lam
said. "I think we have a real good
The combination Lam talks about
is four seniors among seven return
ing starters for the Tar Heels. These
returning starters helped last year's
team enter an 18-4-1 record into the
books, equalling the school record
for wins in a season.
"Leadership is always an impor
tant factor," Lam said. "Plus those
four seniors have some talent and
they're all starters."
Doug Wyland is the top returner
for UNC. He was ACC champion
and finished second in the nation last
year at 1 1 8 pounds, recording a 37-2
record and leading the team with 10
falls. He enters this season ranked
No. 1 in the nation at 118.

Lisa Joffs knows she has done just that.
Joffs exemplifies what is possible if
one is truly committed. Her work ethic
sets an example for all to follow.
The 6-foot-1 senior was a basketball
player in high school when a friend
suggested that she try volleyball. Joffs
took the advice to heart, found she liked
the sport and literally played her way to
"My first coach in high school said if
you play year-round, you may be able
to get a scholarship," Joffs said. "That
got me pysched, and everything was
very positive about volleyball. I was
going to play basketball, but I said
vnah' and played volleyball because I
enjoyed it so much more."
In Boulder, Colo., Joffs began her
career playing club volleyball on a team

Enzo Catullo ACC champion at 142
pounds and 1988-89 All-American last
year, Glen Pazinko a former ACC
champion at 190 pounds, and heavy
weight Jeff Bradley.
The battle for Catullo's spot is be
tween sophomore Guy Palker and re
dshirt freshman Carmen Catullo, Enzo's
younger brother. The 190-pound class
is up for grabs as the probable starter,
redshirt freshman Larry Harris, has left
the team for personal reasons. The
heavyweight spot is expected to be
filled by freshman Shawn Hocker, one
of the highly touted freshman on the
team this season.
'The freshmen's attitude is tremen
dous," Lam said. "They're hungry to
learn and they don't back away from
Along with Hocker, freshmen Dean
Moscovic and Shane Camrera are also
come in with big expectations.
Moscovic made the finals of the first
preseason tournament the Tar Heels
entered, and Lam said Moscovic could
end up starting depending on how he
fares in the East Stroudsburg Open in
Pennsylvania. Camrera pulled cartilage
in his ribs and will probably be re
dshirted. Other possible starters for the Tar
Heels include junior Jay Landolfo, who
was 27-12-3 last year and qualified for
the NCAA tournament, junior Tim
Ellenburger, 11-13-0 last year, and Pete
Welch, who went 15-12-2 in 1988-89.
One goal for the Tar Heels this year
is to regain the ACC championship
from N.C. State. Face it, no matter what
career with a spike
port. They thought I was crazy for a
while there," she said. "I don't think
they thought I was going to do it."
Joffs also needed money to pay for
the trips and tournaments in which her
club team played. Fortunately, Mom
and Dad were there again.
"All the trips I went on took a lot of
money, and so my parents worked
Denver Bronco games in the conces
sion stands selling hotdogs to help fund
my club team," Joffs said.
In fact, Joffs' parents have become
so much a part of her career, they seem
to play the game vicariously.
"Now it's funny in my senior year,
sometimes I'm thinking about whose
more excited to play, them or me,"
Joffs said. "They realize how good it's
been for me, and they've never been on
me to play better or such."
The hard work paid off for Joffs in
terms of scholarship offers from many
schools. However, Joffs chose North
Carolina for its educational quality,
location and growing volleyball pro
gram. "It was a part of the country that
seemed exciting and different than
Colorado," she said. "It's a great edu
cational school and that was my main

Lam has won six ACC titles dur
ing his tenure at head coach, includ
ing four in a row from 1984-1987.
The Wolfpack stopped the run in
1 988 and repeated as champs in 1 989,
with the Tar Heels finishing second
"The two we've lost was the dif
ference of one match won or lost in
the semifinals," Lam said. "It's just
always a good rivalry. They have a
good team returning and we feel we
have a good team returning and we
definitely want to get them back."
The Tar Heels have never fin
ished lower than third in the ACC
during Lam's career, but Lam was
quick to point out that State was not
the only team to worry about in the
conference this year. He mentioned
Clemson, Maryland and Virginia as
possible threats to the top two spots
"It's going to be a tight confer
ence race this year," he said. "Last
year (the conference) had three teams
finish in the Top 20 in the nation, so
the ACC has become pretty com
petitive." "Our team goal is to be in the top
10 at the end of the year, and well

good," he said.
The Tar Heels have already com

Wyland, Oberly and Welch all cap

In the four years Joffs has attended
UNC, the Tar Heel program has begun
to earn the reputation of perennial
power. North Carolina won the Atlan
tic Coast Conference title last season
with Joffs and is the conference's top
team again this season.
Off the volleyball court, the tall and
lanky Joffs is a mild-mannered English
major. An avid fan of music, from '40s
show tunes to Simon and Garfunkel to
James Taylor, Joffs enjoys singing, as
much of the team does. She even ad
mits to being zany on occasion.
"If you add it up, I probably have an
hour a day, just little spurts of just
wackiness," she said. "Sometimes I'm
just a little bit off the wall, and my
friends call me crazy. It's not going out
and getting drunk or anything like that,
they're little things like always having
a song in mind."
On the court, Joffs has fun but is all
business. Co-captain with Sharon Ger
man, Joffs is a vocal leader and con
stantly displays tremendous hustle,
chasing down all stray shots.
"I'm a really intense player. I think
my role on the team is to be, for myself,
a consistent player and set the block,
and, for the team, to be an emotional
force. A lot of people need to concen
trate on their own play, but I'm a better
team player if I'm talking on the floor.
North Carolina's two-year starter at
middle blocker, Joffs has won one ACC
title and hopes to duplicate that feat this
season. But no matter how successful
the team is this season, Joffs has won
the admiration of many with her never-say-die
attitude and work ethic that
have made her a success as a person.

UNC swimming coach Frank Com

"We want to really function well

"We want to bring ourselves together at

what they've done in training and the
limited competition they've had."
That limited competition has in
cluded the Blue-White Meet, the Tar
