CARY The North Carolina
women’s soccer team sent a
message to all off its opponents
in the NCAA tournament in its
win against Virginia Tech:
Bring on the physical play.
Teams around the country
already knew the Tar Heels were
one of the most talented teams
in the nation. Their record of 19-
1-2 proved that.
But UNC’s Achilles’ heel all sea
son was that the team was rattled
by physical play and that most of
its closer contests came against
teams who disrupted its offensive
rhythm with rough play.
Sunday’s 3-0 victory was one
step toward solidifying what sev
eral Tar Heels said they needed
to improve on.
“People see us as really skill
fill; we like to play pretty soccer,
in my opinion,” forward Nikki

“They didn’t need to beat us,” coach Anson

because with PKs, that’s the way they’ve

“So to see that we can even go
to a different style and still come
out with an outcome we want

Virginia Tech certainly fit
the bill of one of those physical
teams. The Hokies battled their
way to the ACC championship
game with 35 fouls in two games
in the tournament, and they com
mitted 12 against the Tar Heels.
Their physical play sparked
upsets against two top-ranked
ACC squads, national No. 5
Florida State and No. 12 Virginia
earlier in the tournament.
Coach Anson Dorrance said
that he wants his team to play
well against physical teams and
that yesterday’s game showed
the progress UNC has made.
“I was very happy with the
fact we weren’t whining when we
were hit. It’s all part of the game,
it’s a contact sport,” he said.
“I was actually expecting for (my header)
to get to one of my teammates, not even
score,” McDonald said.
“I don’t really look to score on corners,
but it went in, and it was exhilarating.”
Nogueira capitalized on an oversight by
Virginia Tech which left her one-on-one
with the goalkeeper, calmly slotting the
shot inside the near post to clinch this year’s
tournament scoring title and provide some

A weekend fire caused $50,000
worth of damage to Gerrard Hall,
dealing a setback to the recently
renovated historic building.
Chapel Hill Fire Department
responded to an automatic fire
alarm at 3:14 am. Saturday. Though
the building’s sprinkler system
partially extinguished the flames,
Gerrard sustained smoke and water
damage on the first floor.
The Loreleis’ a cappella concert
scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday in
Gerrard was moved to Carroll Hall.
Gerrard Hall underwent $2.4
million in renovations last fall. Its
exterior and interior were restored
and it was outfitted with air condi
Originally built in 1837, Gerrard

cuts affect funds

Concerns are mounting about
the future of the UNC arts com
munity as the national economy
continues its downward spiral.
“If you talk to anyone who man
ages a budget they’ll tell you that
they’re worried,” said Emil Kang,
UNC’s Executive Director for the
Arts. “I’m included; we’re worried.”
According to the U.S. Department
of Labor, the national unemploy
ment rate has risen by 1.7 percent
as 2.8 million jobs were lost in the
past year. And in North Carolina,
the unemployment rate increased
from 4.7 percent to 7 percent
With the decrease in jobs comes a
decrease in disposable income, from
which the arts community thrives.
“The arts sector, like most sec
tors that are not financial markets,
were always lagging behind,” Kang
said. “We are at the mercy of peo
ple’s disposable income.”
Because of the economy, tick
et sales and University endow
ment earnings are both expected
to decrease though Carolina
Performing Arts has yet to see any
effects of the failing economy.
Kang said the organization has
generated $1.45 million this year
compared to sl.l million last year.
“Unfortunately the arts are about
six months behind,” he said. “I think
we are going to see a lot of worse
news over the next couple of years.”
Kang said the current economic
state will be a factor in the plan
ning of the organization’s budget.
“We’re not immune to the eco
nomic impacts, but fortunately
we’ve generated all or most of our
revenue for this year,” Kang said.
Despite increased revenue for
Kang’s program, the economy has
