Hash, Lloyd Capture Homecoming Titles
By Eric Meehan
Staff Writer
A 10-year streak in Homecoming elec
tions was shattered Saturday as a candi
date not sponsored by the Black Student
Movement won the tide of Mr. UNC.
Will Lloyd, a senior from Graham
sponsored by the Freshman Camp of
the Campus Y, and Kellie Hash, a
senior from Winston-Salem sponsored
by the BSM, were awarded the tides of
Mr. and Ms. UNC at the UNC-
Maryland football game.
Prior to this year’s elections, only can
didates sponsored by the BSM had won
either tide for the last 10 years.
And Lloyd said BSM candidate
Friday to advance to the tide game.
“A dream come true,” said Norkus,
who was named MVP of the 14th annu
al ACC tournament, of the victory. “It
happened so fast.”
Indeed, in a game that saw 15 UVa.
shots and a total of 31 fouls between the
squads, Norkus’ strike in the 91st minute
was a shock to the 2,486 in attendance.
UNC (19-2) started overtime with
possession and quickly sealed the match.
Defender Chris Leitch sent a long ball
from the defensive side of midfield to
the penalty area, where a number of Tar
Heels and Cavaliers were situated.
Midfielder Michael Bucy headed the
initial pass to Norkus on the right side of
the 18-yard box. Norkus received the
pass and headed it back to Bucy, who
was to his left. Bucy then headed the ball
to a spot in front of Norkus, who started
sneaking toward the right side of the goal.
Bucy’s dish slid by Cavalier defender
Mike Feller and bounced in front of
Brandon Lofton could have just as easily
won the crown. The two exchanged a bear
hug at the 50-yard line after Lloyd was
named the winner. “Brandon was amaz
ingly qualified and a really good guy.”
BSM President Tyra Moore said the
BSM has fared well during the past decade
and that she was surprised Lofton was not
named Mr. UNC. “I was disappointed for
Brandon, not necessarily because of the
streak,” Moore said. “It’s never been about
continuing some streak. I do feel Brandon
is a very strong candidate.
“One of the things that has made a
difference is that we are the only orga
nization that makes the candidates run
and present a platform - therefore, you
get the best candidate.”
We should go ahead and select a president.

Norkus. He right-footed the ball past
goalie David Comfort to give UNC its
first ACC tourney title since 1987.
“Coach was telling me to run off
Bucy, target him and (Matt) Laycock,
two of our taller players,” Norkus said.
“(Bucy) hit it to me and I was like,
‘No, you take it back, I’m too nervous.’
He hit it back to me and I said, ‘I guess
I’ll take a chance.”
The victory was UNC’s 13th straight
win, breaking a 33-year-old school-record
of 12 straight matches without a loss.
The Tar Heels also had not defeated
Virginia (15-5-1) since 1994, including a 3-
1 loss on Sept. 24 at Fetzer Field - UNC’s
last defeat this season.
The Tar Heels were at times discom
bobulated Sunday, especially in the
backfield. Several miscues by UNC’s
defense nearly cost the squad the title.
“I felt the chances that Virginia creat
ed in the first half were more our fault -

And the Count Goes On
As Officials Tally
Votes, Protesters
Take to the Streets

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Clamorous confrontations
between sign-waving supporters of the two leading presiden
tial candidates, Republican George W. Bush and Democrat A1
Gore, were in sharp contrast Saturday with the relaxed mood
of some West Palm Beach citizens.
About 100 passionate protesters,
some carrying bullhorns, others rely
ing on the strength of their voices to
broadcast their opinions, assembled
half a block from the Palm Beach
County Government Center, where members of the Palm
Beach County Elections Board were hand-counting votes cast
for presidential candidates.
The recount and protest centered around alleged election
irregularities and their impact on the presidential race, the
outcome of which has yet to be determined.
Some contend that the Palm Beach ballot was structured so
that some voters accidentally voted for Reform Party candi
date Pat Buchanan instead of Gore. There are also claims that
some voters were turned away from poll sites while others
were allowed to vote twice.
Gore supporters yelled, “Every vote counts,” only to be coun
tered by Bush supporters chanting, “One time.” When Gore sup-
porters changed their cry to “No more Bushit,”
Bush supporters responded by marching around
screaming, “Sore losers.”
Like many other protesters, Bush supporter
Mike Moore of Clarksville, Tenn., and Gore
supporter Mary Albanese of West Palm Beach
tried to out-scream each other, fighting with words while
clenching their fists and shaking their signs.

A crisp, clear autumn day set the
stage for UNC’s Homecoming festivi
ties. Mr. and Ms. UNC crowns were
presented by last year’s winners, David
Cooke and Niccole Cosby.
Lloyd said he was very excited during
tlie halftime presentation. “When I walked
out on the field, I felt really good about my
chances and the whole situation.”
But Hash said she was not sure of her
chances of winning as the announcement
approached. “I was relieved when the
voting was over on Wednesday,” she said.
More than 1,800 votes were cast in
Wednesday’s first online election, far
exceeding last year’s total of 400.
Other candidates who ran included
Lofton, a senior from Jacksonville;Jennifer
and not recognizing situations when
they were closing fast on us,” UNC
coach Elmar Bolowich said.
UNC’s first mistake came in the 24th
minute. Leitch played the ball back to
sweeper Dannyjackson, who looked to
clear it out of the UNC defensive third.
Jackson lost control of Leitch’s pass to
Cavalier forward Alecko Eskandarian,
who then broke toward UNC’s goal.
Eskandarian tried to chip a shot over
charging UNC goalie Michael Ueltschey,
who was at the top of the penalty area. But
his shot from 22 yards found Ueltschey’s
stomach, and UNC averted a goal.
“I saw the goalie was out about 18,20
yards, and so I put my head on a chip,”
Eskandarian said. “I didn’t hit it right.”
Fifteen minutes later, Ueltschey again
found himself under pressure. Jackson
passed to the UNC keeper, who attempt
ed to dribble before booting it out.

Santhouse, a senior from Raleigh; and
Mimi Patel, a senior from Jersey City, NJ.
Lloyd and Hash said they are excited
about the opportunities their new posi
tions will offer them. Mr. and Ms. UNC
each have a service project to complete,
and both candidates seemed eager to
make the position more involved with
the campus.
Hash’s proposed project is a three
day breast awareness program, culmi
nating in a benefit concert. Lloyd plans
to create a Valentine’s Day dance for
children at UNC Hospitals and the Big
Buddy program.
