Susan Moeser Settles Into UNC
As Mentor, Music Enthusiast
By Robert Albright
With bright red hair and blue eyes, the wife of
UNC’s ninth chancellor stands out in a crowd.
But her appearance and her marriage to the
University’s man-in-charge are not the only things
that make Susan Dickerson Moeser unique.
An avid sports fan, an accomplished organist,
a marathon runner, a cook and a lover of the out
doors, Susan is lucky if she can find time during
the day to catch her breath.
Bom in rural Kansas into a family that “bleeds
Jayhawk blood,” Susan began playing the piano
before she could even read, which helped set the
course for her lifelong passion for music.
After watching a teenage boy play the organ at
her family’s church, Susan decided at age 14 to
focus her musical efforts on the popular church
“(The organ) is a very challenging instrument,”
she said. “There is a different array of sounds and
keyboards to choose from, which makes each
Susan, who is active in the American Guild of
Organists, has performed concerts at sites all over
the world, including Westminster Abbey and
Portugal, Germany and South Korea.
Although Susan set her sights on music early in
her life, little did she know that her love of music
would also lead her to her husband, who is an
accomplished organist as well.

and her husband, who has two children from a
previous marriage, have always made an effort to
spend quality time together.
With their common musical bond, the couple
has even performed an organ concert together.
“The last time James and I played together, we
did a concert in Portugal,” she said. “It was a glo
rious experience for both of us.”
In addition to her passion for music, Susan said
she also enjoys running, hiking and tennis.
Having run several marathons, Susan said she

win - UNC’s 12th straight conference tide

“We’re thrilled to be conference
champions again, especially in light of
the season where we took some hits,”
UNC coach Anson Dorrance said. “I’m
pleased not just because we won, but
because we played tremendously weU.”
The fifth-seeded Blue Devils (13-7-1)
upset top-seed Clemson 1-0 on Friday in
the semifinals. Duke’s reward was play
ing a Tar Heel team trying to dispel
rumors that its dynasty is crumbling.
“We did feel like we had to prove
something,” tournament MVP Meredith
Florance said. “There were a number of
comments writing us off, and we just
needed to come together and show the
country that we can play.”
Sunday, as during the entire tourna
ment, UNC played Eke the UNC of old.
The Tar Heel forwards pressured the
Duke defense into several turnovers, one
of which led to the first goal of the game.
In the 14th minute, Florance - who
finished the tournament with three goals
and two assists - took control of a loose

retired professor from the School of

raced past the defense and converted
from 10 yards to give UNC a 1-0 lead.
“It’s so hard to replicate the pressure
that North CaroHna is capable of putting
you under,” Duke coach Bill Hempen
said. “It’s not something you can talk
about; you have to see it and feel it.”
The Tar Heels kept their attacking
pressure up and added to their lead
seven minutes later.
Florance, after receiving a left-wing
cross from Anne Remy, sent a low cross
to the top of the 6-yard box, where Jordan
Walker was able to get a foot on the baE.
Walker, who only recently entered
the starting lineup after Susan Bush’s
season-ending knee injury, scored her
third goal of the season and second of
the tournament. She also added two
assists during the weekend.
“Jordan WaEcer was supposed to be
(Laurie) Schwoy’s apprentice this season,”
Dorrance said. “For that young apprentice
to come out, start for us and lead us and
organize us - what a credit to a great kid.”

In the 78th minute, Ramsey and
Walker played a give-and-go down the
left wing, with Ramsey getting behind the
defense. Her cross found Remy, who,
after making a 60-yard run down the right
side, scored on a diving header.
