Maggi Kelly ,U.S. Women place
third in Water Polo
When she is on campus, graduate student Maggi Kelly is a fine player
with the UNC Water Polo Club. But whenever she leaves the confines
of Chapel Hill to play the sport she loves, she turns her game up a level
to an international level.
Kelly and her teammates on the United States womens' water polo
team recently returned from the World Aquatic Championships in
Perth, Australia. And the long trip to the land Down Under was not all
for naught. The team was rewarded with a solid third-place finish.
'The World Championships areheld every fouryears opposite Olympic
years," said Kelly, explaining the Jan. 3-13 event. There are four sports
each for men and women swimming, divingj synchronized swimming
and water polo."
The U.S team finished the nine-team event behind gold medalist
Holland and silver medalist Canada. "Ail nine teams had to qualify to be
able to play," Kelly said. "We played five matches in the time we were
there, winning three. We beat Hungary in our last game for third place."
Kelly started all five matches for the U.S., scoring one or two goals in
every game. That's not bad, either, considering that "water polo scores
usually range at 9-7 or 8-6." t
Kelly said her next order of business is "finishing up this semester."
Then, she will go back into training with the national team to prepare for
the FIN A Cup, which the U.S. will host this June in Long Beach, Calif.
"The FIN A Cup is held every summer," Kelly said. "We're hoping to
win it, but we're going to have to beat Holland. They've been on top in
womens water polo the last four years "
Kelly and her U.S. teammates are also waiting to hear a decision from
the Olympics concerning their sport. Right now, womens' water polo is
not a medal sport in the Olympics. "We're hoping to have a four-team
exhibition tournament prior to the Olympics in Barcelona, Spain (in
1992)," Kelly said.
And she continues to cross her fingers, wanting to have that Olympic
chance. "They haven't said no yet."
Carolina Blue Cup this weekend in Fetzer
The UNC Team Handball Club will holdthe second annual Carolina
Blue Cup this weekend in Fetzer Gyms A and B. The competition should
be strong, as teams from Air Force, West Point, Ohio St. University,
Arlington, Va. and New Jersey will participate, along with the Carolina
A and B teams. The New Jersey club, also known as the Swim and Sport
Club (SSC), defeated Carolina last year to win the tournament.
"We've got probably three of the top teams in the country in Air Force,
West Point and SSC," said Carolina coach John Silva. "This will be a
great opportunity for students to see an Olympic sport here at Carolina."
Games begin Saturday morning at 9:00 and will last until 9:00p.m.
The medal round will begin at 10:00 a.m. Sunday, with the gold medal
game slated for 1 :30 p.m. in Fetzer A.
Do You Know? knows womens' comp
They chose their team name from the popular M ichael JordanMars
Blackmon Nike commercials "Do you know, do you know, do you
know?" Well, as the Wombats found out in a womens' comp game in
Woollen Gym last week, this team certainly knows basketball. Do You
Know jumped out to a big, early lead and coasted to a 43-23 triumph.
After Jennifer Kroner gave the Wombats a 2-0 lead on a lay up in the
game's first possession, Do You Know scored 18 of the next 20 points to
go up 18-4. Christy Grigg, also Do You Know's captain, led the way with
four of those points.
The Wombats cut the deficit to nine at halftime, but they were simply ;
outmatched in the first part of the second half. Do You Know scored six
straight points on baskets by Grigg, Valerie Halman and Jane Wyatt to
extend the lead to 27-14.
"We went to a man-to-man in the second half after playing zone in the
first half," Griggsaid. "That was Jane's idea I thought it was a good idea.
We just wore them out after that because they only had seven players to
"We also beat them on the boards. That really helped "
Do You Know stayed undefeated at 3-0 with the win.

Crappy Valentine's Day
This is the day we've been avoiding all year, and here it is finally
upon us. So what do we do about it? We wouldn't be faithful to
ourselves if we didn't complain, so here we go. We've got the ins
and outs of Valentine's Day gift-giving, as well as poetry by Cameron
Tew (bet you didn't know he could write poetry) and our favorite
couples. Devon Hyde gives her 67 cents worth, also. Enjoy!
