Heels enter two teams in
Duke golf invitational
Carolina will send 1 2 members of the men's golf team to Durham this weekend to
challenge par in the Duke Fall Invitational.
Bill Sibbick, Kevin King, John McGough, Frank Fuhrer, Eric Lawhon and Phil
Bland will compose the six man "A" team for the Heels in the tournament. Bland
joins the "A" team this week after posting the lowest average among golfers battling
for the sixth spot.
Mark Helffrich, Jim Kunkle, Freddie Palmer, Steve Smith, Jerry Stanislaw and
Jim Taylor make up the "B" team for the Saturday through Monday tournament.
UNC golf coach Devon Brouse views the Duke match as an excellent opportunity '
for the Heels to gain some valuable experience.
"There will be 15 teams, including Ohio State, Wake Forest, N.C. State,
Kentucky and South Carolina," Brouse said, "so it should be a highly competitive
tournament. I t offers our second team the chance to get some more experience, and
it offers our first team the chance to bounce back from the Memphis tournament."
At Memphis, Carolina placed in a tie for 14th. Fuhrer said the golfers did not play
as well as they are capable at M emphis, and looks to the Duke tournament as a good
occasion for the Heels to make a good showing.

H arriers face Devils
Friday. October 14, 1977 Weekender 7
By SKIP FOREMAN
Back from its performance in Tennessee
over the past weekend, the Carolina men's
cross country team faces Duke. The up and
coming event may prove to be the key match
in the Tar Heels' drive for a spot in the
District Championships, as well as the
Atlantic Coast Conference meet.
Coach Bill Lam goes into the meet with
the Blue Devils with two of his key
performers injured and questionable for
service on the Duke Golf Course this
Saturday. Doug Slack has been hampered
by a stress fracture in his foot, and Jimmy
Cooper has shin splints with muscular
complications. Of the two. Slack is less likely
to miss the match, although Lam said he
would like to be sure that both men are
healed sufficiently before they compete.
"Doug Slack has been running third for us
all year," Lam said. "He's probably more
important to us than Jimmy right now,
though Jimmy is important to us as well."
Lam said Slack was able to run and is feeling
very little pain from the injury. Lam would
still like to play it safe with both runners'
Duke star harrier Robbie Perkins was
absent from the Blue Devils' meet with N.C.
State and Wake Forest last weekend. Lam
said that Perkins was under the weather and
that the Duke coaches didn't want to take a
chance on making him worse before the
Carolina meet. It is Perkins' absence or
presence which will make the difference for
Carolina in terms of winning and losing.
"If Perkins doesn't run this weekend, there
isn't any way they can beat us," Lam said.
"With Perkins in there, it takes our one-two
punch away from us." The one-two punch
Lam refers to is the duo of Ralph King and
Gary Hofstetter. With the two of them
running unopposed, Duke indeed stands
very little chance of getting a win. If Perkins
competes. Lam said, Hofstetter could finish
behind him. King "will have his hands full"
because Perkins has been his nemesis for a
"We're in good shape if we can handle our
injuries. If Cooper misses all this week and
the race, it's going to throw him a little bit
behind. If we can handle our injuries, I
anticipate them having to beat us on
Meanwhile, the women's cross country
team searches for its first victory of the year.
The team will try again in a five-way meet
with Wake Forest. Duke, N.C. State and
Davidson. This meet will mark the third time
this season that the Carolina women must
face State in cross country.
