Survival Test Next Friday
1M-REC Sports will sponsor the First Annual All-Niter Survival Test

"The event will feature a series of competitions such as half court 3-on-3

and one-pitch Softball tournaments and a midnight fun run," said Marty

a.m. on Saturday, Pomerantz said. The evening will also feature sport club
demonstrations, open recreational swimming and "Wacky Water Waces"

Teams that win will receive IM-REC Sports t-shirts. Entries are due in
the IM-REC office in 203 Woollen Gym by next Thursday, Sept. 1 7.
Pomeranti gave two reasons for the creation of the All-Niter Survival
Test. "Because it's never been done at Carolina and we're just wild and
crazy guys," he said.

Reserve your racquetball court now
There is a change in the racquetball reservation process for the fall
semester, Pomerantz said.
Courts should be reserved on the day before a person desires to play.
Reservations may be made beginning at 3 p.m. up until the next day at 2.
p.m. in the IM-REC office or by calling 962-1 153.
Play is limited to one hour of play a day, Pomerantz said, unless empty
courts are available.
"We have 1 5 racquetball courts and six squash courts," Pomerantz said.
"Squash courts may be reserved in the same process."
Wallyball courts may also be reserved. "Wallyball is volleyball played
on racquetball court," Pomerantz said. "The ball may be played off the
walls. We're going to have a couple wallyball tournaments throughout the
year, but courts may also be reserved for free play."
Team Handball Club reloads
The Carolina Team Handball Club struggled to an eighth place finish
out of 1 1 teams in the College and University Division at last April's 1 992
Nationals at Philadelphia. The finish was the worst in the club's history
at the national tournament.
"We won the bronze in 1991 and finished fourth in 1989," said John
Silva, the club's coach and faculty adviser. "We were disappointed
because the guys played hard, but we have to develop better court
intelligence. We've got good athletes, but we must work In the team
Silva is very optimistic about this year's club, which has 15 players
returning from last year. "I expect to move guys into different positions
this year more than ever before," he said. "There's really no reason why we
shouldn't contend for the national championship."
Senior goalie Tim Ammer leads the Tar Heel returnees. "Tim is
consistently excellent," Silva said. "1 plan on promoting htm for a
National Olympic Festival position."
Other top returning players include Roger Roper, Graham Kelly,
Patrick Joyner, Battle Watkins and Lance Kelly. "Lance is probably the
player to watch this year," Silva said. "He's got a lot of promise."
Carolina will travel to West Point for a tournament in mid-October.
"If we can increase Our on-court discipline by 100 percent from last year,
no one is going to touch us," Silva said.
