Tar Heels Hold Off Wolfpack Rally
By Gavin Off
Halloween night started well but later
provided the North Carolina volleyball
team with a scare.
Before the match UNC honored it’s

Then UNC jumped all over rival

Tar Heels Hope Turf Energizes Ground Game
By Bret Strelow
Assistant Sports Editor
North Carolina football coach Carl
Torbush knows some of his players
aren’t thrilled about traveling to
Pittsburgh this weekend.
And it’s not because they have
become tentative in the midst of a four
game losing streak. They just aren’t
looking forward to trying to halt that
streak on the cold artificial turf of Three
“Because we’re playing on turf for
the first time, you hear some moaning
and groaning other than what they’re
expected to do,” Torbush said.
Pittsburgh is playing at Three Rivers
Stadium this year after it left 74-year-old
Pitt Stadium at the end of last season. A
new stadium that the Panthers and the
Pittsburgh Steelers will share is set to
open next August.
UNC hasn’t played a game on artifi
cial turf since it defeated San Diego
State in the 1998 Las Vegas Bowl.
Only six current Tar Heels were on
the roster in 1996, when North Carolina
played two regular-season games on
artificial turf. UNC defeated Syracuse at
the Carrier Dome and Houston at the
Astrodome that year.
Players often put on elbow sleeves
and long-sleeved shirts to avoid turf
bums. But senior linebacker Brandon
Spoon, who had four tackles against
Houston in 1996, said playing again on
turf isn’t a big deal for him.

UNC took the first two games behind
tough serving and consistent blocking,
two points Sagula said the team has
been stressing. UNC had 18 team blocks
compared to State’s nine.
But, as in past matches, UNC lost its
focus. The number of unforced errors
increased, and North Carolina’s defense
began to weaken. A similar situation
happened this weekend when the Tar
Heels took the first two games against
Duke but were forced into a fifth game.
But it wasn’t the Wolfpack’s play

Torbush said he won’t announce a starter
for the Pittsburgh game until Saturday.
“I think we’ve made some real tough
runs, and I think our running game has
improved a great deal,” Torbush said.
“But for us to get where we want to be
in the running game, we’ve got to knock
off a couple big ones, and we have not
done that yet."
Torbush said that hasn’t happened
because backside linebackers and
defensive ends have gotten their hands

State ran all over UNC to begin game
three, jumping out to a 7-0 lead. The Tar
Heels put up a bigger fight in game four
but killed themselves with sloppy play.
“We need to be very precise with our
passing and hitting,” said Simpson, who
left with back spasms during the fifth game.
“We just weren’t for part of the night”
But despite the mix-up in the middle
of the match, the Tar Heels pulled out a
victory for their seniors.
“I think they’ve been a really big part
of the program for four years,” Sagula
said. “I’m just excited they can end on
a winning note.”

At ITA Championships
None of the Tar Hee! men's
tennis players are seeded
in the regional tournament,
which is being held at UNC.
By Owen A. Hassell
It won’t be all strawberries and cream
for the North Carolina men’s tennis
team this week.
Even with the home-court advantage.
UNC heads into this week’s
Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s South
Adantic Regional Indoor Championships
without a Tar Heel seeded in either the
singles or doubles brackets. •
But this isn’t a cause for concern for
UNC coach Sam Paul.
“I don’t put much stock into seeds,”
Paul said. “They could use whatever
records from the past to determine who is
seeded here, so it isn’t a clean-cut process.”
Sponsored by Top of the Hill restau
rant, the ITA Championships event has
been a staple tournament of Cone-
Kenfield Tennis Center since the facili
ty’s inception in 1993.
UNC’s David Cheatwood, Marcio
Petrone and Trystan Meniane have all
earned spots in the 64-player singles
draw. In the 32-team doubles bracket,
automatic bids were given to the
tandems of Cheatwood and Greg Archer
and Petrone and Nicholas Monroe.
Paul and his Tar Heels hope to add to
their tournament entries in today’s qual
ifying rounds. Chad Riley, Max Hilkey,

The hard work
may pay off at home for the Tar Heels,
who will be facing some of the most tal
ented college tennis players from across
Paul knows that conditioning will be
a factor as well as his team heads into
such stiff competition. Especially when
many of his players will be in both sin
gles and doubles action.
“A lot of the top-ranked players in the
country will be in this tournament,” Paul
said. “Hopefully a lot of fans will come
out to see some great tennis.”
This year should be no different with
more than 25 schools being represented
this week. Although it is an individual
event, the Tar Heels can also look to get
a good scouting report of the ACC. The
conference will showcase all nine of its
member schools in the tournament
