THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1992 OMNBUS SPORTsy Night Owls, Athletes: Survival Test Next Friday 1M-REC Sports will sponsor the First Annual All-Niter Survival Test next Friday, Sept. 18. "The event will feature a series of competitions such as half court 3-on-3 basketball, bed sheet volleyball, wallyballj racquetball, over-the-line and one-pitch Softball tournaments and a midnight fun run," said Marty Pomerantz, director of intramural and recreational sports. Festivities will begin on Friday at 8 p.m. and will conclude around 4 a.m. on Saturday, Pomerantz said. The evening will also feature sport club demonstrations, open recreational swimming and "Wacky Water Waces" in the indoor pool, a mystery film fest on the big video screen, and free play. 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. Pates to remember Entries open Monday for five IM-REC events ' Wimbledon volleyball, open racquetball, grail softball, home run derby and floor hockey. Entries will close Tuesday for team tennis, Napoleon basketball and innertube water basketball. The Second IM-REC Sports Staff Development, Workshop will be held Sunday at 7 p.m. in 109 Fetzer. All IM-REC staff members, including aerobic instructors, officials, lifeguards, office staff, sport supervisors, club sports officers and advisers, facility monitors and managers are invited to attend. The guest speaker will be Carol Binzer, assistant director of the office of leadership development. She will speak on "Leadership Styles and Communication." Ice cream will also be served. Any staff member interested in attending should RSVP by Friday, Sept. 11 at 962-11 53. 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 concept." 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.
