Fenner runs
over UVa;
TUNC rolls
Assistant Sports Editor
The weather was miserable
enough to make throwing the ball
hazardous, the general atmosphere
was bizarre, and UNC tailback
Derrick Fenner started Saturday's
UNC-Virginia game in coach Dick
Crum's doghouse. All the props were
set up for a stunning performance
by Fenner, who responded in grand
fashion by rushing for 328 yards to
lead the Tar Heels in a 27-7 romp
over the defenseless Cavaliers.
The win gave UNC a 6-3-1 overall
record, a 4-2 ACC mark and kept
the team's bowl hopes alive. Virginia
dropped to 3-7 and 2-4.
Fenner, who is fond of calling
himself "free-spirited," began the
game on the bench because earlier
in the week he had been ia'.e to
practice twice. But the sophomore
tailback didn't stay seated for long.
Freshman Torin Dorn started at
tailback and promptly fumbled his
first carry. After Cav quarterback
Don Majkowski returned the favor
with an errant pitch, UNC picked
up two yards on three plays and three
points on a 48-yard Kenny Miller
field goal. Three minutes Lter, w hen
the Tar Heels got the ball back,
Fenner was unleashed.
His debut wasn't much. On third
and one from the Virginia 36, Fenner
tiptoed into the line and fumbled into
the hands of linebacker Sean Scott.
One might have been forgiven for
thinking at that point that it would
be a sunny day in Chapel Hill before
Fenner touched the ball again. And .
the clouds didn't look like they were
going anywhere.
But Crum's options at tailback are
limited, and Fenner's incandescent
talent is hard to bench. So when
UNC got the ball back, Fenner got
the call. This time he answered on

the first ring.
With the ball on the UNC 21,
Fenner carried twice for 11 yards,
he followed that by taking a handoff
from quarterback Mark Maye,
slashing off right tackle, cutting
outside and shedding pursuit as he
raced down the right sideline and
tumbled into the end zone after being
tripped at the five. Sixty-eight yards,
touchdown and a 10-0 UNC lead.
"It was so wet that he certainly
used his strength," Crum said. "He
kind of disappeared in a maze of
players and then all of a sudden he
came out."
The game, though, was still in the
first quarter and was still very much
up for grabs. The Cavaliers
responded to the Fenner run by
driving to the six, where Pat Toland
fumbled. And for the rest of the cold,
rainy day that produced more than
20,000 no-shows, the Virginia
offense vanished. .
Helping perform the vanishing act
was the UNC defense, which came
out emotionally high, seeking
redemption after giving up 30 points
or more in five straight games. The
catcalls and insults that besieged the
team after the Clemson debacle had
hit the defensive players particularly
"It was emotion, emotion and
pride all mixed into one," corner

You could fold up your tent and go
home or you could get ready to fight.
We just came together and said we've
got to it."

The UNC-system should not
change season lengths and recruiting
practices unless other NCAA schools
are bound by the same changes,
UNC-system President CD.
Spangler told the Board of Gover
nors in its Friday meeting.
Changes do need to be made, he
said, but the actions should come
from the NCAA Council in its
January convention, not from the
individual schools of the UNC
system. Spangler declined to propose
specific changes, saying that doing
so would weaken the system's influ
ence at the national level.
But he added that there was
"considerable sentiment across the
country" for shortening season
lengths, reducing the number of
contests for some sports and abbre
viating the recruiting process.
UNC-system schools, Spangler
said, "are not islands, and the best
way to cause change is to try to work
with our NCAA brethren. We do
need to make clear our conviction,
however, that the NCAA must act,
and that if it fails to do so, other
courses must be taken."
In his report, Spangler described
a Sept. 30 letter to the president of
the NCAA Presidents' Commission
as a "good framework in which to
discuss the questions of season
lengths and number of contests."
The letter, from Charles E. Young,
chancellor of the University of
California at Los Angeles and
chairman of an ad hoc group of
University presidents who make
recommendations to the NCAA,
suggests several changes:
B reducing recruitment periods
and the number of visits and contacts
allowed as a part of the recruitment
process for football and basketball,
reducing the number of baseball
games by 20, restricting it to the
spring season beginning Jan. 2,
eliminating spring practice in
D prohibiting basketball games
played before Christmas recess,
reducing the number of football
scholarships from 95 to 80 over a
three-year period,
a reducing basketball scholar
ships from 15 to 12 over the same

ing assistants from nine to seven in
football and from two to one in

Spock to speak on nuclear war
Nicaraguans dismiss mercenary's chance of pardon
From Associated Press reports
MANAGUA, Nicaragua Jus
tice Minister Rodrigo Reyes rejected
on Sunday the possibility of pardon
ing U.S. citizen Eugene Hasenfus,
who was sentenced to 30 years in
prison for his part in a weapons
delivery flight to U.S.-backed Con
tra rebels.
"There is no reason to pardon
him," Reyes told the Associated
Press one day after a political court
handed down the verdict and the
sentence. "The Nicaraguan peniten
tiary system will guarantee that he
fulfills his sentence."
Earlier remarks by President
Daniel Ortega had fed speculation
that Hasenfus, 45, of Marinette,
Wis., might be pardoned.
Ortega has not commented on the
case since the U.S. mercenary was
convicted, and his stand on a
possible pardon is unknown.
Reyes, chief prosecutor in the case,
said, "If a pardon is applicable, I am
sure there will be rejection by the
population, and the authorities
would have to explain that step very
Pro-government newspapers on
Sunday billed the verdict against
Hasenfus as a conviction of the
United States as well.
"The 30 years for Hasenfus are a
penalty for Yankee interventionism,"
El Nuevo Diario said.
It quoted unidentified Nicaraguan
legal authorities as saying "this
sentence should hit the eardrums of
President Reagan, (who should)
observe that his obstinate intention
of destroying the revolution will have
severe responses."

Dr. Benjamin Spock, baby- and
child-care expert and nuclear acti
vist, will speak on avoiding nuclear
war at 8 tonight in Memorial Hall.
The Carolina Union Activities
Board's Current Issues Committee is
sponsoring his talk, "Can We Avoid
Nuclear Annihilation for Ourselves
and Our Children?"
Spock is best known for his co
written book, "Baby and Child
Care," which remains among the
most popular books on the subject,
despite many revisions.
An anti-nuclear activist, Spock
publicly supported a test-ban treaty
and became co-chairman of SANE,
the national committee for a sane
nuclear policy.
Spock favors eliminating nuclear
power plants. He advocates energy
conservation and development of
renewable energy sources, such as
solar power, that would not deplete
the Earth's resources.
Spock also led opposition to the
Vietnam War, resulting in his con
viction for conspiracy.

native, received his bachelor's degree

"I was stunned.
UNC head coach Anson
No one at Fetzer Field Sunday was more
stunned than the University of California at
Santa Barbara women's soccer team, after UNC
humbled the Gauchos 8-0, in a second-round
NCAA playoff game.
UNC's victory advanced them to the Final
Four, which will be held next weekend. UNC,
on a quest for its fifth national champinship
in six years, will play George Mason in the
The Tar Heels swarmed the Gauchos from
beginning to end, balancing the scoring with
four first half goals and four in the second. v
The first half was the "April Heinrichs
Show." The senior forward from Littleton,
Colo., who was coming off a knee injury,
seemed to be in several places at once, scoring
three goals and generally making life miserable
for the Gauchos.
At 7:45 into the first half, Heinrichs scored
the first goal by taking the ball about 20 yards
out, dribbling through the Gaucho defense, and
jamming it into the net.
"The coaches are stressing my assets and
qualities," Heinrichs said. "And my assets are
to take the ball and go to the goal."
"April Heinrichs won that game for them,"
Santa Barbara head coach Andy Kuenzli said.
"It was an individual effort on her part."
Junior forward Carrie Serwetnyk also scored
a goal in the first half, when an attempted shot
by teammate Shannon Higgins bounced off the
goal. Serwetnyk chipped the rebound back over
the goalkeeper's head.
Heinrichs added two more for the margin
at the break.
"At halftime, the game was already out of
reach at 4-0," Kuenzli said.
Dorrance said that to judge Heinrichs'
performance, it is necessary to look at the
situation in which it occurred.
"When you talk about great games, you talk
about the importance of the game that the
player was great in and this game got us into
the Final Four," Dorrance said. "For her to
play that well, in this kind of game, coming
off an injury, where she didn't train that much
. . . her legend continues in my mind.
"She makes me look like a good coach."
Heinrichs injured her knee the previous
Saturday in a scrimmage, so there was some
doubt earlier in the week about her being able
to play. Despite her performance, she said that
her knee was a little stiff during the game.
In the second half, the Tar Heels continued
their relentless barrage on the Gauchos, scoring
four more goals and growing even more
dominant on defense.
Heinrichs wasn't the only Tar Heel perform
ing well. The entire squad enjoyed one of its
better days.
"We were really on," senior midfielder
Marcia McDermott said. "Everyone was
playing with so much enthusiasm. It was a high
intensity out there."
"The second half today defensively was one
of the best defensive organizations IVe ever
seen," Dorrance said. "I wanted to get up and
applaud because that performance (overall) was
The goal for this team is the national
championship, and it is now just two games
"This game relieves us to a degree because
this is the game we wanted to get past,"
Dorrance said. "We wanted to get back to the
Final Four. The Final Four is soccer's big
annual party and we wanted to be a part of
it. We're there."
