BY KIMBERLY MCCUDDEN

the midnight oil Friday at the UNC Indoor
Invitational held at Hilton Indoor Com
plex. Events started at 3:30 p. m. and did
not end until midnight.
In a gear-up meet for the ACCs, team
points were not taken, but North Carolina

share of strong race finishes. The meet also
served to qualify athletes for the NCAAs.
Ten colleges and five club track teams
participated in the meet.
Junior Tyra Moore claimed the triple
jump title, finished third in the long jump
and was second in the 55-meter hurdles in
7.78 seconds. She was also fourth in the
Senior Chad Black was second in the
55-meter hurdles in 7.19 seconds, shatter
ing the “Tin Can" collegiate record. Black
finishedbehindTerry Reese, an unattached
athlete. Black automatically qualified for
the NCAAs with his time.
“It was a great meet because there were
a lot of people who came out to support the
track team,” he said. “The ‘Tin Can’ was
so crowded that everybody had to stand
up. It was really hyped-up.”

Both Harrison and Alison Levy, who
lost to Melissa Zimpfer 6-1, 6-0, said the
match was a learning experience.
“It was good in the sense that we can
take today and see what we need to work
on,” Levy said. “We watched what they
did well. They were good examples of
what we need to be.
Harrison also said that it was important
to consider Tennessee’s strength as a team.
The Volunteers defeated Brigham Young
54 on Saturday, while UNC was shut out
by BYU Thursday night.
“We had a tough match with BYU, so I
knew Tennessee would be a little stronger,
even though they’re the lower-ranked team
at this point,” Harrison said.
Levy and Gurney both said that the loss
could help motivate the Tar Heels.
“I think we’ll take this match and use it
to make us more determined to turn things
around in this next week,” Levy said.
Injuries took a toll on UNC against the
Vols. Both Ariana Cervenka and Freddy
Uihlein played through pain in singles and

not only on the track
but on the field,” he said. “We should be
very strong at the ACCs.”

field events. Smith won the men’s long
jump with a leap of 24 feet, nine inches
the second-longest jump in school history.
Leon Johnson claimed second place with a
jump of 24-2.

Cervenka pulled a leg muscle in the first
game of the match and struggled with it
until the end.
Uihlein had to deal with a sore shoulder
in her loss to Manisha Malhotra, 6-0,6-2.
“We may have to do a little adjusting,
but I hope not,” Harrison said.
In other results, Porter Glass was
knocked offby Catrina McCarthy 6-1,6-2;
Levy and Gurney were defeated by
Malhotra and Zimpfer, ranked 26th in the
country, 6-1, 6-0 in doubles; and

McCarthy and Heather McEvoy in an
eight-game pro set, 8-2.
Harrison said the team would not make
any changes in its practice routine as it
prepares to play Richmond on Thursday.
She said the players would continue to
work on fundamentals and maintain a
our third match. It’s a tough way to start,
but it’s good for us in that it makes us see
the level to which we need to rise. I know
we will. The spirit is there.”
