"You've come a long way baby" is a
description of women's athletics that can no
longer pacify the rising female demand for more
This is true at Carolina, where women have
often had greater athletic outlets than other
schools in the state. But what is pushing
administrators to upgrade the women's program
is Title IX, the legislation barring sports
discrimination in federally-funded institutions.
The Title IX guidelines, which President Ford
is expected to sign into law in January, say: No
person shall on the basis of sex, be excluded from
participation in, be denied the benefits of, be
treated differently from another person or
otherwise be discriminated against in any
physical education or athletic program
. ?r Though equal athletic expenditure will not be
irequired for the sexes, the specific Title IX effect
'Xn Carolina remains indefinite. Meetings have
been held, writers have speculated and
administrators have agonized about the
situation, but most all agree UNC is in better
.shape than many others,
jr UNC offers eight intercollegiate sports for
women with a total operational budget of
$25,000 (out of the athletic department's $1.5
Each sport is coached by a different person,
and the women athletes also have access to the
UNC Sports Medicine program. In fact for the
last two years, trainers have accompanied the
women's basketball and field hockey teams on-
Last year the University also awarded its first
female scholarship (to Lexington native, Carney
Timberiake), and coaches in the women's
program were paid for the first time.
This fall the women's program, which involves
about 120 girls, is under the UNC Athletic
Department and director Homer Rice.
Previously, the program came under physical
education and Dr. CarBlyth, the head of the
Dr. Virginia R. Holt began the intercollegiate
program for women in 1971, replacing the
informal, playday affairs that had formed the
only interschool athletic base for females since
"Girls now want a, serious athletic program,"
said UNC Women's Director Frances Hogan,
appointed this past summer to Holt's position
and a member of the physical education
department over 20 years. She also coaches
varsity tennis. '
"You can't go out there and organize on a club
basis with women wanting better organization
and competition," Hogan said. "I've always
competed in tennis and field hockey, and 1 like to
see the highly-skilled girl have this opportunity.
If she doesn't make the team, she can still play on
club or intramural teams."
Pointing out the strong golf, tennis, field
hockey and volleyball teams this fall, Hogan
continued, "I would say we (Carolina) are the
envy of almost every school."
The golf team, led by first-year coach Dr. Pam
Robinson, had an undefeated slate in only its
second season at Carolina. The golfers,
spearheaded by Mindy Moore, Sally Austin and
Kathy Sinopoli, beat Wake Forest, UNC-G,
Longwood and William and Mary.
The tennis team notched another perfect
record of 7-0, after going 1 0-0 last season. This
fall the netters won 58 of 69 matches, shutting
out East Carolina, Furman and William and
Mary. Led by Timberiake, Beth Hamilton and
Jane Preyer, the defending state champion team
also trounced Mary Baldwin College, 13-2. Both
tennis and golf teams resume play this March.
The field hockey team, coached by Ann
Gregory, recently placed three players on the
Deep South team after a much-improved season.
Frosh inner forward Vickie Greenwood
cornered a spot on the first team, while goalie
Patty Williams and center halfback Laurie
Woodard were selected for the second squad.
In its third year at Carolina, the volleyball
team had its best season. Three years ago the
team was 5-8, followed by a 9-5 mark last year.
This year: 17-5. In the state tournament. Coach
Mary Frances Branch's volleyballers missed a
regional berth by only one position. They
finished fourth after a disappointing three-game
loss to Wake Forest.
Currently, the women's swim team has
chalked up three wins against no losses over
Duke, East Carolina and UNC-G. Meanwhile,
the basketball, gymnastics and fencing teams are
preparing for post-Christmas campaigns.
Junior Varsity next
This fall UNC also added its first junior varsity
women's sport. Coached by Dr. Angela
Lumpkin, the team used part of the varsity's
funds to cover expenses because no budget
appropriation was made last year.
Its continuance and the start of similar jayvee
squads, Hogan said, "depends on whether we
have the personnel and the interest. They begged
for tennis last year, but we didn't have anyone to
But hiring a person in the women's program
just to coach, which would alleviate the coaching
shortage, is not a favored idea, Hogan said,
noting all eight women's coaches are also
teachers in the physical education department.
"It is the feeling of the AI AW (Association of
Intercollegiate Athletics for Women,
comparable to the men's NCAA) that coaches
should be physical educators," Hogan clarified.
"I don't think they want us to hire coaches. We
want to keep women's sports under control and
"1 guess there would be some (coaches who
only coach) who are capable," she admitted, "but
you've got to be careful who you get. The state
(NCAI AW) recommends you hire those in your
physical education department."
Accenting this educational aspect in women's
sports carries over into another important area:
Many school officials last Spring were upset
with Carolina's decision to award a female grant-in-aid.
Hogan said she was told by UNC officials
to announce at last Spring's NCAIAW meeting
that Carolina would not award another until
another school made the move.
"Many women still don't want scholarships
because recruiting could create real problems,"
she said. "There are no women that 1 know of,
hired just to coach. They are members of
physical education departments sometimes
teaching, coaching and running intramurals.
"1 don't know of any who want to get into
recruiting," Hogan stressed.
"Women have always had a multitude of
things to do. It's amazing the percentage who
can't even get a supplement (for coaching) or a
reduction in teaching load," Hogan, basing her
remarks on a personal survey, said.
Whether Title IX will help change the
coaching situation isn't really known, Hogan
said. "The University's trying real hard to
comply with Title IX, but you have to have a wait
and see attitude until it's signed by the

A 13-4 season is nothing to be
ashamed of, but the Carolina women's
basketball team looks for an even better
record in '75.
Try-outs this week brought 34 women
to Carmichael Auditorium. From these
34, Coach Angela Lumpkin will choose

Probation has put Coach Lumpkin in
an awkward position. "Because I wasn't
here last year, what I've heard (about the
reasons for the probation) is strictly
second hand," she said. "I would like to
forget it and get on with helping
Carolina become the basketball power
in the state."
Coach Lumpkin believes the biggest
problem with probation will be keeping
the team mentally up when everyone
else is peaking for tournament play.
"But we'll get over that," said Allred,
sharing Lumpkin's point of view, and
added that "it should be a real good
