Terp Rally for 7th Straight Title
BY TODD GRAFF
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
COLLEGE PARK, Md. —North Carolina goalkeeper Tracy
Noonan stood in the cold and the wind for 75 minutes, touching
the ball sporadically, but never getting tested.
She had yet to make a save in those first 75 minutes and easily
could have been numbed by the frosty wind.
But when the Maryland offense
pushed forward in the final 15 min
utes, Noonan made three saves to pre
serve the Tar Heels’ 3-0 win in the
ACC Tournament championship.
“It was intense pressure there at the end,” defender Staci
Wilson said. “And Noonan came through for us once the shots
started getting through to her.”
It was top-ranked UNC’s (23-0) seventh straight ACC Tourna
ment championship and fifth shutout in its last six tourney games.
Trailing by three goals, Maryland (17-5) sent an extra attacker
forward and generated four scoring opportunities in a five-minute
stretch. Emmy Harbo had two scoring chances from less than six
yards out, but Noonan responded with a diving save and a stop on
a tough angle to earn UNC’s sixth straight shutout.
“That late move was a great tactical decision by (Maryland
coach) April (Heinrichs), because we were under relentless pres
sure there in the last 12 minutes, which actually showcased Tracy
Noonan,” UNC coach Anson Dorrance said. “I think she demon
strated in that stretch why she’s an outstanding goaltender.”
Noonan and the rest of the defensive corps performed almost
flawlessly throughout the tournament, limiting Maryland to five
shots, and allowing only three to Florida State and Duke com

The prosecution and the defense will
present their closing arguments in the
double murder trial of former UNC law
student Wendell Williamson, and the case
will be given to the jury this afternoon.
The defense rested their case Friday,
and die prosecution called no rebuttal case
against Williamson. The defense asked for

Judge Gordon Battle, however, denied
a defense motion for a direct verdict in the
trial, which would have put the decision in
the hands of the judge. Battle said that the
decision of the prosecution not to present a
rebuttal case does not entide the defense to
a direct verdict.
Before resting their case, the defense
recalled expert witness Dr. John Warren, a
psychiatristwho examined Williamson the
day after the Jan. 26 shootings.
Warren was asked to explain the com
mitment process for defendants found not
guilty by reason of insanity. Warren told
the jury defendants who are found not
guilty by reason of insanity are immedi

Warren testified that the major criterion
for evaluation after commitment is whether

a danger to himself. A homicide in a
defendant’s relative past makes him a dan

Warren said defendants who are found
not guilty by reason of insanity are gener

who are found guilty and incarcerated.

Field Hockey Needs 0T Again
To Beat Maryland in ACC Final
COLLEGE PARK, Md. Perhaps overtime was inevitable.
Sunday’s ACC field hockey championship finale marked the
third time North Carolina and Maryland had faced each other this
year. The Terps dropped the first meeting in College Park in
double overtime, then lost again atNavy Field in one extra period.
“Sometimes it feels like we’re chip-
ping away at a statue, first going into
the double overtime and then the over
time, ” Maryland coach Missy Meharg
said. “Today, like the other days, I
really thought it could go either way.”
But once again, it didn’t go the Terps’ way.
Although North Carolina had every excuse for losing the
championship game Sunday injuries to key players; a penalty
stroke; sudden-death overtime; biting, windy weather the
UNC statue yielded only a slight dent.
Though behind in both games in the tourney, the top-ranked
and undefeated Tar Heels topped the third-ranked Terps 3-2 in
overtime Sunday after beating Duke 2-1 on Saturday to advance.
“We knew if we faced Maryland again that it’d be tough,
because we played them in overtime two times before this year,”
said sophomore forward Kate Barber, who was voted co-MVP of
“But we didn’t have to prove anything to anyone today. We
just went out there and did it for ourselves.”
Although they were the top seed in the tourney, the Tar Heels
came into the game with the proverbial deck stacked against them.
Two ofUNC’s top players—freshman forward Nancy Pelligreen
and sophomore midfielder Joy Driscoll —were injured (Pelligreen
with a strained leg muscle; Driscoll with a broken finger) and had

Warren told the jury testing indicated
that Williamson’s general level of intellec

the general public, and the score may be
low as a result of medication.
“Schizophrenia cuts across intellectual

biological illnesses, schizophrenia does not
relate to intellectual (function). That’s

Mourners pay homage to slain Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in a candlelight vigil Sunday night at N.C. Hillel.
Those in attendance sang songs for Rabin, who was gunned down Saturday night by a right-wing Israeli extremist
Mourners of Many Faillis
Honor Slain Israeli Leader
BY GREG KAHN
In the wake of Saturday’s assassination
of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin,
members of the Chapel Hill community
gathered atN.C. Hillel to mourn and show
support for those affected by Rabin’s death.
Rabin, a veteran of the Israeli Army and
was assassinated Saturday by an Israeli
law student during a peace rally in Tel
Leaders of various local religious orga
nizations spoke of Rabin's life and offered
support for the more than 200 students and
community members who attended Sun
day night’s candlelight vigil.
Darin Diner, interim director of N.C.
Hillel, said the goal of the vigil was
communitywide support. “Event partici
pants were students and non-students, Jews
and non-Jews, searching for answers, and
although no real answers could be found,
we knew that we could find support from
our friends and neighbors,” Diner said.
Leading the vigil was Rabbi John S.
Friedman from the Judea Reform Congre
gation in Durham. He said the fact that
Rabin’s assassin was a fellow Israeli and
not a Palestinian means that “even for
Jews, peace is dangerous word.”
Support from religious leaders of other
faiths was expressed at the vigil. Offering
an expression ofloyalty to the Jewish com
munity was Imam Abdul-Hafez Waheed,
a representative from Durham’s Muslim
community. Waheed read an excerpt from
the Koran that discussed unity among “the
people of the book,” a phrase used to
describe Jews, Christians and Muslims.
Reverend Richard Edens from the
United Church of Chapel Hill drew com
parisons between Rabin and the biblical
figure Isaiah, saying, “He turned
ploughshares into swords” during his life
Expressing hope that the peace accords
signed by Rabin will not be abandoned,
Chapel Hill Mayor Ken Broun said, “We
mourn, with all Israelis and all the people
of the world, the loss of a great leader, but
hopefully not the loss of his ideals.”
Dan Ariely, an Israeli graduate student
at Duke University and veteran of the
Lebanese War, had similar hopes. “We
can only pray that the prospects for peace
will not be gone,” he said.
V igil participants came fromavarietyof
age groups, races and religious back
grounds. “It brought a smile to my face to
see such a large base of support; it helped
me understand what being a part of a larger
community is about,” Diner said.
UNC freshman Kristin Moe said she
attended the rally to support the peace
Rabin fought for.
Diner said he was upset that Rabin’s
assassin called himself a Jew. “This makes
it that much more difficult to understand
because every tenet, belief and rule (of the
Jewish religion) was shatteredby his act —
he should not and cannot be called a mem
ber of the Jewish community, ” Diner said.
The vigil concluded with songs and
prayers in Hebrew. N.C. Hillel will have a
table in the Pit today with candles for
students to light. Diner said the table would
be there to “add light to the flame of prom
ise.” Haverim, a newly formed student
group in support oflsrael, will hold a group
discussion Wednesday night at 6:30.
