Dorrance Captures 500th Victory

North Carolina coach Anson Dorrance answers reporters' questions
after his Tar Heels top Clemson 3-0 to secure nis 500th win.
Coach's Philosophy, Talent Define Career

It was a rare weekend in Anson Dorrance’s life.
The man who later would become the winningest
women’s soccer coach in NCAA history saw his
North Carolina men’s team lose to Central Florida
in overtime. His women’s team later tied CFU on
that hot August Sunday in 1986.
Dorrance’s daughter Michelle challenged her dad
to a game of Chutes and Ladders to cheer him up
after the doubleheader. He paid little attention dur
ing the game and didn’t realize he had lost until the
7-year-old burst into tears. He felt horrible for being
so distracted that he had ignored his little girl. He
looked at her and gendy asked what was wrong.
“Dad, I just wanted you to win something today. ”
Defining a Dynasty
Dorrance smiles at the memory, and rightfully so.
Losing is not something he has often faced in 21
years at UNC.
He picked up his 500th win against Clemson on
Thursday night, has captured 16 out of 19 NCAA
championships and has won almost 95 percent of his
games. Forty of his former players have played on
the U.S. National Team, and 24 play in the WUSA.
His name has been uttered in the same breath as

But it almost never happened. Dorrance once
wanted to be a lawyer.
He enjoyed his part-time coaching job with the
UNC men’s team in the late 19705, but surely that
wasn’t real work. He seemed destined to be a cor
porate lawyer for his father’s oil refining company.
But then-UNC men’s soccer coach Marvin Allen
had something else in mind when he recommend
ed Dorrance for the men’s head coaching position.
“Doctor Allen saw something in me that I never
saw,” Dorrance says.
Bill Cobey, UNC’s Director of Athletics at the
time, took a risk on the unproven 23-year-old.
“I can’t think of any better decision I’ve made,”
Cobey says. “It’s like telling someone to run the 100-
yard dash in under 10 seconds and have them do it
year after year after year. How could you possibly
expect someone to produce those type of results?”
It didn’t take long for Dorrance to produce the
results Cobey wanted and give up on his law degree.
“I never thought of coaching as an intellectual
pursuit,” Dorrance says with a smile.
In 1979, Cobey asked Dorrance to take a look at
the women’s soccer club team and offered him a full
time job to coach both the men’s and women’s

officials said on condition of anonymity.
The officials added that forces were
pressing on with a wide range of opera
tions, including some meant to be kept
secret even after they are over.
Asked whether U.S. forces would kill
bin Laden on sight, Gen. Richard B.
Myers, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, said it depends on what happens

It wasn’t like it had never happened before.
On a similar chilly October night in 1997, North Carolina
women’s soccer coach Anson Dorrance was doused with water to
celebrate tallying his 400th career win.
But even so, Dorrance wasn’t pre
pared for the aftermath of Thursday’s
When the clock ran out on the match
that marked Dorrance’s 500th win -
making him the first women’s soccer coach to reach such a num
ber - three of his players ran to the sideline, grabbed a large,
orange water cooler and hoisted it up to soak their coach.
“I had a suspicion this might happen, and like a fool, I didn’t
wear my rain gear,” Dorrance said as the scoreboard sparkled
“500” behind him. “That’s a lack of coaching experience. The
timing was great because I was absolutely shocked, and I am
standing here, freezing to absolute death.”
Even the brisk night couldn’t cool the warmth that radiated from
the Tar Heels’ smiles as they relished in their coach’s victory. UNC
(13-0,5-0 in the ACC) dominated Clemson for the duration of the
match and defeated the Tigers 3-0. The win vaulted Dorrance’s
record to 500 wins, 22 losses and 11 ties in his 21-year career.
“This is really special,” said senior striker Anne Remy, who
scored two goals in the contest. “Anson never asks anything of us
for him. We always play for each other. He would never say,
‘This is my 500th win. Please do this for me.’"
In fact, the coaches didn’t say a word about the milestone.
Remy didn’t find out until a reporter called her to ask her a ques
tion about the occasion. “The rumor mill had started, but we did
n’t address it until we were in the huddle before the game,” Remy
said. “We all said, ‘Let’s win this one for Anson.’ And that’s what
we went out and tried to do.”
And when UNC sets its sights on winning, it’s a hard team to
stop. The Tar Heels contained the game to Clemson’s defensive
third of the field and outshot the Tigers 29-3. Clemson (9-3,3-3) did
n’t even get a good look at UNC’s net until 11 minutes after halftime.
Dorrance said this game would be memorable not just because
it was win 500 but because of the way his team played.
“Maybe this will be a turning point for us this year,” Dorrance
said. “Not that we’ve had a lot of miserable performances, but I
know the kind of performance we need to compete at the high
est level, and I saw that performance tonight.”

Report Finds Drugs
In Student's System
By Scott Warfield
Toxicology reports released last week
show that UNC senior Daniel Walker
had cocaine, alcohol and the main
ingredient of the drug OxyContin in his
system the night he died.
Walker, 20, of 92 Pine Hill Drive in
Carrboro died Sept. 7 at, his residence.
One of Walker’s roommates found his
body around 10:30 a.m. Officials said
there was no evidence of foul play.
Wednesday, the Carrboro Police
Department released information
regarding Walker’s death obtained from
the Orange County Medical Examiner’s
The toxicology reports state that there
was a significant level of cocaine in
Walker’s system, suggesting recent
cocaine use. There also was an elevated
level of oxycodone - the main ingredient
in OxyContin - detected in his system,
according to reports. The police press
release also states that Walker’s blood alco
hol level was .10 at the time of his death.
Although some information about
Walker’s death has been released, the
medical examiner’s report is not complete
and his cause of death is still unknown.
It is still unclear what killed Walker, but
examiners have reported that oxycodone
-a strong narcotic pain reliever that has
been linked to more than 120 deaths
nationwide - was found in his system.
According to the OxyContin
Infocenter Web site, oxycodone is the
main active ingredient in OxyContin.

Officials' Views Differ
On Admissions Cap
By Brook Corwin
Last year 9,735 out-of-state students
applied to UNC-Chapel Hill, a total that
is 40 percent higher than the number of
But nearly 8,000 of those students
received rejection letters in reply.
For many of these denied applicants,
their rejections came as a result of the
University’s only quota related to admis

The cap, which is based on an N.C.
General Assembly statute and is in place
for all 16 schools in the UNC system
except the N.C. School of the Arts, is
designed to ensure enrollment spaces for
N.C. residents because they pay taxes to
help fund the state’s public universities.
But the enrollment limit also has cre

applicant field, and some officials say
UNC-CH could benefit from changing
the cap to give more of these prospec
tive students a place at the University.
“We’re getting the top students from
across the country,” said Jerry Lucido,
director of admissions at UNC-CH.

Marcia Harris, director of University
Career Services, said 24 percent of out
of-state students - compared to 66 per
cent of in-state students - in the class of
2001 took jobs in North Carolina after
graduation. “There is quite a difference
between in-state and out-of-state stu
dents, but that’s still a quarter of all out
of-state students who stayed and con

But members of the General Assembly
said because public universities are par
tially funded by tax dollars, out-of-state
enrollment is a political issue open to the
viewpoints and votes of the state's citizens.
Rep. Cary Allred, R-Orange, said
there is public opposition to an increase
in out-of-state admissions because it
would come at the expense of those help

Allred said $2,700 of each out-of-state stu

“There are a lot of people who feel
allowing 18 percent of students to be
out-of-state is too much,” Allred said.

student, there’s an in-state student who
