High hopes for UNC track
BY MARY DUBY
There will be an abundance of
expectations as the North Carolina
men and women’s track and field
teams head to Clemson on Friday
and Saturday for the ACC Indoor
Track and Field Championships.
“I’ve been doing this for so long,
my goal always is to win,” said
Coach Dennis Craddock.
The Tar Heel women have won
14 ACC Indoor titles. If they can
handle the tough competition of
Clemson, Florida State and
Georgia Tech, the team could earn
its third consecutive indoor or out
door ACC victory.
“We want to win because we
want to go for the triple crown,”
said freshman hurdler Porscha
Dobson, whose time of 8.41 sec

grams. UNC officials said they
want to create more internation
al opportunities, whether study
ing abroad or having an intern
ship, and attract more interna
Especially for in-state students,
financing the cost of a study
abroad program can be a major
hurdle because programs often
cost several thousand dollars more
than UNC tuition.
Officials also stressed the lack of
adequate scholarships to make up
for the increased costs of studying
“Until recently, the average
award was SSOO. That’s the cost of
the study abroad fee (a required
deposit),” Farrow said.
“We’ve tried to increase the
value of study abroad scholar

Charles House, chairman of the
Chapel Hill Downtown
Commission’s board of directors,
said the move is positive for Subway
and the business community.
“Before too long, we will have a
full street again,” House said.
Neakta said the renovations at
the new Subway store are almost
complete. He said he has been
remodeling the store since
December and has changed “just

and possibly have theme nights.”
The Physical Activity Committee
plans to encourage students to get
the recommended amount of exer
cise each day, Hau said.
But Hau said the major goal of
Healthy Campus 2010 is to provide
an umbrella organization for dif
ferent health promotion programs.
“We can be used to promote var
ious activities and to show stu
dents how they can establish
healthy behavior early on in their
adulthood,” she said.
Hau said that out of about 500
organizations at UNC, not one
promotes health issues for the
campus community as a whole.

Captain Alice Schmidt is expect
ed to lead the way for UNC as she
strives to defend her title in the 800.
However, Schmidt and other
touted runners have been banged
up recently. Sprinters Tiffany
Flomo and Anissa Gainey, Dobson,
vaulter Tatyana Kirichenko and dis
tance runner Carol Henry all have
battled injuries this season.
“They’re all still competing, but
they’re not where they need to be,”
Craddock said. “We’re hoping that
they’ll come back around for us.”
The Tar Heel women will also
rely heavily on their field event ath
letes to put points on the board.

His mother believes this

“It is important to promote
health prevention information
before chronic disease sets in on
our generation,” she said. “I think
nutrition is definitely the key
because in college you establish
your eating habits.”
The first event the group plans to
get involved in is “Love Your Body
Week,” scheduled for the week of
Feb. 23, which is devoted to teach
ing awareness of eating disorders.
Hau said she is looking forward
to being the first student advocacy
group for the national initiative.
“The organization has great
potential for really making a dif
ference,” she said.

UNC’s top four pole vaulters have
also led the conference all season.
“I think Coach Craddock is right
when he says that if everyone
works their hardest, we can defi
nitely win this,” Schmidt said.
On the men’s side, Craddock is
hoping to finish in the top two in the
competitive conference. The title
has eluded UNC since 1996.
“The team is impressing me,”
Craddock said. “Each week we
seem to get a little bit better that I
think we have a shot at the top two.”
John Hubbard aims to add to
the four high jump titles that he
has already won this season.
“I feel really good the chances
of winning are good,” he said. “I

For George, who celebrated his
eighth birthday on Valentine’s Day,
the future holds many challenges
but offers many possibilities.
If his resilient personality and
past performance are any indica
tion of what’s to come, George will
be surprising his family, friends
and doctors for a long time.
“I know he has a life-threaten
ing illness, I know that,” Kupit
said. “But I refuse to look at the
bad side of it.”

“But unless the working conditions
and salaries improve in the state, we
will still have a retention problem.”
Gage said that 50 percent of
teachers leave the work force with
in their first five to seven years and
that salary could be the main rea
son. But retention is not inde
pendent of supply. Gage noted that
many teachers work in the same
region where they attended school.
“If we can recruit and develop
our supply within a region, statis
tics indicate that we’ll have a lot
better chance of teachers staying
within the system.”
