Splish Splash: UNC Leads After Day 1 of ACCs
Tar Heel Freshman Miller
Qualifies for NCAA Meet
In 500-Yard Freestyle
BY KIMBERLY MCCUDDEN
STAFF WRITER
When the waters at Koury Natatorium
finally settled Thursday night, the North
Carolina women’s swimming and diving
team was leading in team points in the
ACC Championships.
Due to strong finishes in both the relay
and individual events, North Carolina cap
tured 256 points, 25 ahead ofVirginia with
231. Clemson, Florida State and Mary
land were next in points, followed by N.C.
State and Duke, after the first day of the
three-day event.
“We swam and dove superbly,” coach
Frank Comfort said. “It’s a great first night
for us.”
Freshman Chrissy Miller provided a
highlight for the evening in the 500-yard
freestyle by automatically qualifying for
the NCAA championships in 4 minutes,
46.9 seconds. Miller was second in that
event, and senior Leslie Ramsey was fourth
in 4:48.44, which is an NCAA consider
ation time.
“I’m really happy,” Miller said. “I
wanted to make the NCAA cut. It’s my
first ACC championships, so it’s pretty
exciting.”
Miller’s teammate, junior Kari Haag,
called Miller’s performance “tremendous.”
Haag won the 50-yard freestyle in 23.31
after finishing second in the preliminaries
earlier in the day. Meanwhile, junior co
captain Christy Garth placed fifth in 23.75
and senior Ann Hart was sixth in 23.86.
Both are NCAA consideration times.
"I told myself I had to step it up a notch
and get it done,” Haag said.

The North Carolina tennis team came

When the most recent tennis poll came

the 15th-ranked team and teams who have

“They (Brigham Young) are excellent, ”

“They’re talented and scrappy, and they

NCAA consideration time of 1:34.15.
Garth, freshman Jennifer Lattimer and
Hart swam the other three legs.
In the 400-yard relay medley, the Tar
Heels finished second to UVa., which set
an ACC Championship meet record in
3:46.67. The teamofHaag, Miller, Ramsey
and Hart received NCAA consideration in
3:47.33.
“So far, we got the results we expected,”
said Garth, adding that several members of
the team swam personal bests. “There’s
never any way to get exactly what you
hope for, but we’re getting pretty close.”
Garth said team spirit was high during
the finals even though it was a little flat in
the morning preliminaries.
“In the finals, everyone rallied, which I
think is essential for everyone to swim fast
and for us to even think about winning,”
Garth said.
Other top finishes for the Tar Heels
included a third-place showing by senior
Carrie Szulc, who swam the 200-yard indi-
felt good to have a nice, tough match.”
Uihlein’s match was indicative of the
kind of battles the Tar Heels faced all day.
BYU’sJenSaretattackedUihlein’sback
hand fortwo hours, and Uihlein counterat
tacked with just as much intensity.
“We both recognized early on that
backhands were our weaknesses,” said
Uihlein. “I just tried to slice them and keep
them in the court. Her serve and her
overheads were spectacular.”
Saret triumphed with a 6-3,6-4 win.
On the next court over, the No. 1 singles
were locked in another fierce battle.
UNC’s Ariana Cervenka lost her first
set 10-9 in a tie-breaker and won the sec
ond set before dropping the third 6-0.
“I had a few unlucky breaks,” said
Cervenka. “I was up 5-3 in the first set,
serving at set point, but I couldn’t hold on.
It was that kind of day.”
After dropping the first set though,
Cervenka came roaring back.
“It was like ‘wounded bear syndrome’
for me,” Cervenka said. “She got comfort
able and eased off, and I was angry and
able to put the pressure on.”
And even though Cervenka could not
finish the job, Harrison was pleased with
her performance.
“Ariana is proving a lot to herself,”

NCAA consideration standard. Freshman
Tracey Barrett was fifth in 2:05.71.
In diving, senior Alison Conrad took
third place in the 1 -meter event while fresh
man Kelly Badrock placed fifth. Conrad,
who also placed third last year, said she felt
Harrison said. “She can play with anyone
in the country and do well. The only thing
she needs to work on now is her consis
tency. Itcan’tjustbeasethereandthere
she needs to put the sets together.”
But Harrison said she was proud of her
team’s performance.
“I was really proud of the way we came
back and did not let up,” she said.
Harrison pointed to the effort of sopho
more Robyn Gurney as symbolic of the
never-give-up attitude of the Tar Heels.
Gurney lost the first set of her singles
match 6-1, but forced a tie-breaker in the
second set, which she lost 74.
That type of effort is what Harrison and
the Tar Heels are looking for.
“Today was just good, solid tennis all
the way around,” said sophomore Alison
Levy. “We knew they would be tough, but
wins and losses can’t change our attitude.
We can’t measure success in wins and
losses. As long as we keep improving, our
attitude will stay positive and the record
will take care of itself.”
