Duke University’s decision to include
coverage of sexual reassignment sur-
gery in its student health insurance
plan starting next year might prompt
UNC-system schools to offer the same.
Ken Pittman, chief operating officer
of UNC-CH Campus Health Services,
said the University has previously dis-
cussed the possibility of including the
coverage in its health insurance.
He said the UNC system will be
operating under the same insurance
provider as Duke, BlueCross BlueShield
of North Carolina, next year — mean-
ing the discussions will likely continue.
“This is positive in terms of us mov-
ing forward and being able to evaluate
this in subsequent years,” he said.
Administrators initially introduced
the idea of covering sexual reassign-
ment surgery in Duke’s student health
insurance plan before students took up
the cause, said Duke’s Dean of Students
She said the university began offer-
ing hormonal therapy and counsel-
ing a few years ago, then approached
BlueCross BlueShield about the possi-
bility of covering the surgery.
BlueCross BlueShield approved the
idea, and the student health advisory
committee recommended the plan to
the university, she said. The recent
change will affect the cost of the plan by
less than half of a percent, she added.
“We are very committed to support-
ing all students,” she said.
Duke will be one of the first universi-
ties to offer the coverage, along with
other schools such as Brown University,
Pittman said UNC-CH has not pur-
sued sexual reassignment surgery as a
benefit for students because it would
have to be approved by all 17 UNC-
Few institutions and employers in
the country include sexual reassign-
ment surgery as part of their insurance
plan, he said.
He said UNC-CH’s plan covers psy-
chological support for transgender stu-
dents, but not the hormonal aspects or
the actual surgery.

DPS investigates mail
tampering in dorms

Students in six campus resi-

mail could be at risk.
UNC’s Department of Public
Safety is investigating instances of
mail tampering — a federal crime
involving opening, destroying or
damaging someone else’s mail.
DPS spokesman Randy Young

boxes. The affected residence

In 2006, a man walked into a sexually
transmitted disease clinic in Lilongwe,
Malawi, in search of treatment.
Now, seven years, dozens of blood sam-
ples and scores of medical tests later, his
unique case is still being studied in search
of a scientific discovery he never could
When the patient walked into the
clinic, UNC researchers stationed there
identified in his blood an acute HIV infec-
tion, the earliest stage of the disease.
His blood samples were then sent to
a laboratory run by scientists from Duke
University — and now have led to a dis-
covery published earlier this month that
scientists are calling an important step in
the path to creating the ever-elusive HIV
“In truth, when we enrolled these
patients, we didn’t know we’d find this,”
said Dr. Myron Cohen, UNC’s associate
vice chancellor for global health, who
worked on the study.
“This came as a really fantastic example
for the prepared mind.”
Following the ‘road map’ to a cure
When the African patient — referred
to throughout the study as CH505 — was
first identified with the acute infection,
researchers took special interest in his
case, hoping to follow the evolution of the
virus and the body’s response.
He was enrolled in an intense study
that involved taking a series of blood
samples, Cohen said.
“By seeing them very frequently, we
could understand in tremendous detail
what was happening,” he said.
And Dr. Barton Haynes, director of the
Duke Human Vaccine Institute and head
of the research team, said what happened
in this particular patient was quite rare.
Haynes said the response of the
immune system in HIV-infected indi-
viduals can be compared to an arms race,

antibody response to fight it, the virus
has already mutated and the antibody is
“In most people, that arms race going
back and forth doesn’t lead the antibody
in the right direction,” he said. “But in
some rare individuals, such as the indi-
vidual from the UNC clinic in Malawi, the
right kind of antibodies are made.”
These antibodies — called broadly neu-
tralizing antibodies — are proteins that
work to fight all different variations of
HIV, creating a powerful and more effec-
tive immune system response against the
virus. But few patients have them, Haynes
Now that the antibodies have been
found early on in one patient, scientists
hope they can study this particular case to
figure out a way to artificially induce the
same response in others.
“The breakthrough is that no one’s ever
been able to study how a broadly neutral-

ning,” Haynes said.

When UNC pharmacy student
Katie Traylor’s name was called on
“The Price is Right” to be a contes-
tant, she couldn’t even hear it over
all the screaming.
“I was freaking out. I was hugging
everyone. My friend Ashley started
crying,” Traylor said. “We were all
just overwhelmed and delirious.”
But later they would have an even
bigger reason to be excited — she
went on to win $10,000.
Traylor and friends were in Los
Angeles in March for an annual
American Pharmacists Association
conference when they went to tape
the episode of “The Price is Right”
that aired April 16.
“As soon as we found out that it
was going to be (filmed) there, we
knew we were going to go,” Traylor
“It was on (my friend Allison
Presnell’s) bucket list. We were
determined to do it.”
Presnell said she really wanted to
go on the show.
“I searched the web and read
online blogs about previous experi-
ences and what you can do to get
on the show,” she said. “We really
had to be loud, crazy and obnoxious
because the producers and other
staff were always walking around.”
Traylor said they took this advice
“I went to the bathroom and I
would run, screaming, high fiving
people, just trying to get noticed
because people were watching us at
all times, trying to pick who’s going
to be next going on stage,” she said.
Before entering the studio, all
audience members had to be inter-
viewed by the producer. When the
producer approached Traylor, she
gave some unusual answers.
“He asked me what I liked to do
and I was dancing around saying, ‘I
like painting and drinking.’ It was
just like word vomit — just saying
something crazy because it didn’t
matter if it made sense, you get

Colin Goddard is the assistant director of
federal legislation for the Brady Campaign to
Prevent Gun Violence.
Goddard is also a survivor of gun violence.
He was shot four times during the Virginia
Tech massacre in 2007 — the deadliest shoot-
ing incident by a single gunman in U.S. his-
tory, in which 32 were killed.
Since he graduated from Virginia Tech in
2008, Goddard has been advocating for legis-
lation that would require a background check
for anyone looking to purchase a gun.
He is the subject of the documentary
“Living for 32,” in which he goes undercover
with a hidden camera to show just how easy
it is to obtain a firearm in America.
Staff writer Lillian Evans spoke with
Goddard, who will talk on campus today at
a showing of the documentary at 7 p.m. in
Student Union 3408.
Daily Tar Heel: Why did you start coming to
speak on college campuses?
Colin Goddard: I think speaking with young
people is always a smart thing to do — it’s a
way to engage in places with young people
who are voting and coming up in the world.
DTH: What is the usual reaction to your
CG: They’re usually good conversations,
sometimes they’re a little more heated — but
I don’t like the ones that are over quickly, so
to speak. I like the ones that go on longer — I
like people to talk.
DTH: What has been the best moment in
the last six years?
CG: The moment still
hasn’t happened, which is
why I’m still doing this. It
has been a roller coaster
over the last six years. The
moment I’m ultimately
searching for is when we
require a background
check for gun sales —
making that the standard
and having a law like that
is the goal. This isn’t some-
thing I plan to do forever.
This is something that I
need to get done to make
the world a better place on
a very fundamental level.
DTH: You’ve said before that you don’t
want to be known as “Colin Goddard, the
Survivor” anymore. What would you prefer
to be known as?
CG: Well, first of all, I’d prefer to be thought
of as a survivor than to be called a victim. But
I feel like there will be a point in my life when
it’s, “Here’s Colin Goddard, the teacher,” or
“Here’s Colin Goddard, the diplomat,” or “the
lawyer” — well probably not that, actually.
But they’ ll say that, and then maybe
they’ ll say, “Oh yeah, and did you know
when he was younger, this crazy stuff hap-
DTH: What do you say to critics who claim
that people behind the recent Boston events, or
the Aurora theater shooting, couldn’t have been
stopped, no matter how strict the gun laws?
CG: So what, we should just let it happen?
That kind of argument is a call for no laws.
I don’t understand that — so since we can’t
stop anything, we just don’t try? Ultimately,
the argument the Senate used against back-
ground checks is that they are an inconve-
nience. What we’ve found, though, is that
most good gun owners are in favor of back-
ground checks. Responsible gun ownership is
the solution to our problem. The background
checks are a question of responsibility —
there is only one way to do that, and it’s a
five-minute background check.
DTH: What is your key message to UNC
CG: The key message is that we have a
problem and it needs resolve. It could help
save lives, and your engagement in the issue
by getting involved is the missing piece —
students are the missing piece.

With the sun gleaming on a new copper roof
and children playing at the entrance, the historic
Chatham County Courthouse opened its doors
again to the community on Saturday.
A March 2010 fire left the historic Pittsboro
building — whose cornerstone was laid in 1881 —
little more than a shell of bricks.
“I remember the sense of loss that we all felt as
a result of that terrible day,” said U.S. Rep. Renee
“And yet here we are today coming together to
celebrate a rebirth of this beautiful courthouse, the
center of your community.”
Saturday’s celebrations included a courtroom
ceremony, tours of the restored courthouse and the
new Chatham Historical Museum and a rededica-
tion of the cornerstone.
The restored courtroom — housed on the second
floor — was filled to capacity with about 250 attend-
ees eager to celebrate. Restored and improved, the
courtroom has new soundproof walls, an audiovisual
system and an automatic sprinkler system — an
improvement that was met with applause.
Chatham County Superior Court Judge Allen
Baddour said the new courtroom preserves the his-
tory of the courthouse and will be a gathering place
for legal hearings, ceremonies and county meetings.
“It’s a home for public discourse, Chatham

ways every day on campus,
including volunteering and
One way that many of

aren’t familiar with plate-
lets, they are a component
of your blood that helps
in clotting and healing of
People with cancer such
as leukemia often do not
make enough platelets and
have a high risk of bleeding
and therefore rely on plate-
let transfusions for their
survival and health.
Other patients that rou-
tinely receive platelets are
burn and trauma victims
and people with bleeding
Because platelets are so
important for patients such
as the ones described above,
donations are essential.
After being donated,
platelets only last five days,
so there is a constant need
for more donations. This
is especially true during
the summer months, when
there aren’t as many stu-
dents on campus.
Students make up about
60 percent of the total
number of platelet donors
seen at the Blood Donation
Center. Students’ commit-
ment to others is important
for the patients!
As is evident, platelet
donation saves lives, and
it is as easy as sitting in a
chair for two hours as you
watch a movie and snack!

TO THE EDITOR:
Let me tell you about
a text message I received
from my brother, a first-
year student at MIT, who
was working the front desk
in his residence hall.

fter four days of poring
over an overwhelming
amount of tips, put-
ting the city on lockdown and
executing a frantic search, the
police have a teenage suspect
for the Boston Marathon
bombings in custody.
But in the immediate after-
math of the bombings, a host
of mistakes made by the media
misled the public and, argu-
ably, even put some people in
Some media outlets wrongly
reported that a suspect in the
bombings had been arrested;
one put a photo on a news-
paper cover focusing on two
“suspicious” individuals who
were later found to be not
associated with the bombings
and another outlet reported
that the suspect was a “dark-
The use of the vague physi-
cal descriptor “dark-skinned
male” implied that the sus-
pect was a man of color and,
because it didn’t specify the
race of the individual, it
didn’t actually provide any
additional clues as to who
the suspect might be. The
assertion that the suspect in
the bombings was a “dark-
skinned male” only put
many men that could fit that
ambiguous description at risk
of undeserved discrimination
at the hands of a traumatized
and frightened public.
In a city like Boston, which
has a history of racial division,
discrimination and violence,
the use of a vague descriptor
like “a dark-skinned male” is
largely irresponsible. It con-
notes a man of color, and
whether or not that implies
an African-American, Latino
or a man of Middle Eastern
descent is unclear. The phrase
is so ambiguous that, ethi-
cally, the decision to use it to
describe a suspect in an attack
that has drawn international
attention was both inappropri-
ate and offensive.
In a recent statement, the
National Association of Black
Journalists warned media out-
lets to be careful when men-
tioning race in coverage when
it isn’t vital to the story.
And the suspect in cus-
tody, 19-year-old Dzhokhar
A. Tsarnaev, ended up being a
white man, proving premature
claims false. This sort of disre-
gard for accuracy by the media
This isn’t the first time
crime in the city of Boston

The fear was immediate

I am here to share with
you that I think we, as lead-
ers on our campuses, have
a unique responsibility in
such moments of violence.
I am an alumna of UNC
and am about to graduate
with a Master of Education
in Higher Education and
Student Affairs from
the University of South
Carolina. I love UNC. I love
working with college stu-
dents, and I love working on
a college campus. I wake up
every day excited that I get a
chance to work to make the
college experience better for
my students. There’s some-
thing special about the work
I am lucky enough to do.
That something special
is the countless students
who are like my brother —
smart, curious, hard-work-
ing, and full of potential.
In an emergency, these
students are likely to look to
us for direction and leader-
ship. How we act in a crisis
could influence the safety of
the students who motivate
us to come to work each day.
With that said, I implore
you to educate yourself on
how an active shooter or
other emergency would be
handled on your campus. If
you don’t know how to find
out, politely and respect-
fully ask your supervisor or
trusted mentor. If they don’t
know, reach out to your
campus police or dean of
After you have educated
yourself, educate your stu-
dents. Make emergency
procedures a part of your
student staff trainings,
write a blurb about it in
your syllabi, put it on your
websites, or have conversa-
tions with students. If you
don’t feel comfortable talk-
ing about how to handle
potential threats, reach out
to a student affairs staff
member, police officer or
counselor on your campus.
Last night when I got the
news from my brother, I did
not write this in fear. We
may not be able to predict
or prevent violent acts, but
we can be prepared to deal
with them if they happen.
If we live in fear, those
who perpetrate these violent
acts will win. However, if we
educate and prepare our-
selves and our students the
best we can, we can begin to
take a stand against violence
on our campuses.

eat, study and relax.
Here is some advice
for the next head of
the Student Union.
f you’re fed up with the
current version of the
General Assembly, there’s a
glimmer of hope on the very
A revived bipartisan effort
to reform how the state
draws its political districts
for Congress and the state
legislature is gaining momen-
tum in the N.C. House of
Representatives. It’s one of the
few positive developments of
the 2013 legislative session.
The N.C. General Assembly
draws new congressional and
state legislative districts each
decade after the census.
The GOP’s deliberate ger-
rymandering in 2011 packed
into a distinct minority of
districts to create a solidly
right-wing state legislature
that doesn’t reflect our
moderate political climate.
Democrats have been guilty
of this too, and have used
redistricting just as aggres-
sively in previous cycles.
House Bill 606 would
make redistricting a nonparti-
san process in North Carolina
Old North State Politics
Senior public relations and public
policy major from Bethesda, Md.
by establishing an advisory
commission of independent
professionals to submit maps
with compact and contiguous
political districts for legisla-
tive approval during the next
The bill is sponsored by
two Democrats and two
Republicans — including
Speaker Pro Tempore Paul
Stam — and 57 co-sponsors
from both parties. The House
passed a similar bill by an
overwhelming 88-27 vote in
2011, but it died in the Senate.
Fixing the redistricting
process could help remove the
“crazy” from North Carolina
politics by eliminating the
GOP’s comfortable electoral
cushion. You might see fewer
bills proposing preposterous
ideas like making Christianity
the official state religion or
allowing lawmakers to receive
gifts from lobbyists.
There’s some shrewd polit-
ical calculation: Democrats
desperately need maps
that level the playing field.
Republicans recognize the
state’s long-term demograph-
ic trends favor Democrats,
and they are worried about
having the tables turned
against them during the next
redistricting cycle in 2021.
North Carolina’s current
political maps distort the
political process and devalue
voter participation. There’s
a pervasive sense that votes
don’t matter and the game is
rigged against us.
The renewed push for
redistricting reform is a
reminder that our elected
officials in Raleigh could be
capable of coming together
to make democracy work for
the people who elected them
to office. That’s a rare thing
these days in North Carolina.
The N.C. nonpartisan redistricting bill should be approved this session.
Maps reform is needed

Alex McKeithen will
read from his memoir, “The
Seventh Angel,” today at Bull’s
During his time at Davidson
College, McKeithen went to
Tuscany to study painting for
his studio art major. He suf-
fered a psychotic break that
caused him to think he was the
seventh angel sent to warn peo-
ple of the coming apocalypse.
He streaked through Paris until
he was arrested at the Arc de
Triomphe. Upon returning to
the U.S., he was diagnosed with
Assistant Arts Editor
Josephine Yurcaba spoke with
McKeithen about his experi-
ences abroad before and after
the break, and why he decided
to put them down on paper.
Daily Tar Heel: What was
being abroad like and how
were you doing before you
went to Paris?
Alex McKeithen: I was in
Tuscany, and I was staying in
a hillside town that was very
beautiful. The Tuscan sun
really raised my spirit.
I skipped the two other
classes in art history that I
had and just painted and got
higher and higher.
DTH: What happened or
made things different when
you got you Paris?
AM: When I tripped to
Paris I was pretty high on life.
The family I got didn’t have
any parents there.
So I didn’t have anyone
looking out for me if I was
having trouble. I was just
going to museums and taking
in how pretty Paris was, and
I was drawing all the time. I
wasn’t grounded at all.
That’s pretty much what
triggered the break. I can
remember everything. I was
surprised when writing the
book that I can remember
all the churches I passed.
It’s kind of like frozen in my
memory because it was such
an odd thing to go through.
When I was in Fortuna, I
thought something was spe-
cial about me. I thought I was
special somehow, and I was
doing these paintings and was
totally inspired by God.
I grew up in the church
and was a Christian, and a
couple times I closed my eyes
and said a prayer while in
Fortuna asking, “What’s going
on? Give me a sign.”
When I opened my eyes
there was a dove flying right
in front of me.
In Paris, the night before
I had the break, I read the
entire book of Revelation.
When you slip out of
bounds you start making your
own games and reasons for
things and you’re euphoric
and you think you’re special.
The reason I took my
clothes off was because I
thought I was the seventh
angel and the apocalypse
was coming that day and we
didn’t need clothes anymore
and it was a return to the
Garden of Eden.
I was like the seventh angel
or the second Adam.
DTH: Why did you write the
book and what do you hope
people get from it and from
your visit to Bull’s Head?
AM: I really wanted to write
it because I really dislike the
way that people represent
bipolar in movies and books,
like Bradley Cooper wearing a
I wanted to write it just
100 percent the way it is.
People don’t go running down

the experience was like and
maybe go through the experi-

The results of this study,
which were published earlier
this month in Nature maga-
zine, were the culmination of
a seven-year, multi-million
dollar grant from the Center
for HIV/AIDS Vaccine
Immunology that led to the
establishment of 14 clinical
sites around the world.
The grant — which was
awarded to Haynes and
involved investigators from
six different institutes — has
contributed to efforts to cre-
ate a vaccine. But Dr. Charles
Hicks, an associate professor
at Duke and an investigator
at one of the clinical sites
involved in the study, said
the real success between the
two universities started years
before the grant even existed.
“We started working
together even before (the
grant), and that’s what helped
us build the relationships we
have now,” he said.
Hicks, who has been work-
ing with Duke for nearly
20 years, said when he first
arrived, the relationship
between the schools was dif-
ferent — competitive, not col-
“It was the old zero-sum
game,” he said. “The prevail-
ing point of view was that
if one institution got some-
thing, it meant the other
hadn’t gotten it.”
But Hicks said after UNC
received money for a grant
that Duke had not, the two
schools started to evaluate
their strengths and consider
how they might complement
“Then there was this notion
that, ‘You know, combining
we’re going to be more than
the sum of the two — we’re
actually going to be a multipli-
cation of the two,’” he said.
Susan Fiscus, a UNC
professor of microbiology
and immunology who par-
ticipated in the study, said
the relationship between the
two schools has made both of
them more successful.
“Competition is good, and
you strive for your best if
you’re working against some
competitor who’s also very
good,” Fiscus said.
“But by the same token,
working together — and (the
project) was a remarkable col-
lection of some of the bright-
est minds from all around the
world putting aside their egos
to work together for this com-
mon cause — I think it worked
out very well.”

“The relationship between
faculty and athletics needs to
become more openly adver-
sarial,” Smith said.
He said the business model
the NCAA uses has made stu-
dent-athletes a myth because
it has made academics second
priority for them.
Rawlings said these ideas
will be taken into consider-
ation in the next few months
while the panel works to cre-
ate its final recommendations.

UNC splits series
with Yellow Jackets
SOFtball: GeOrGia tech 8, UNc 5
By Daniel Wilco
It was a game of early
domination, and then it was
a game with the potential of a
late comeback. It was a game
of prominent pitching prow-
ess, and then it was a game of
walks and double-digit hits.
In a doubleheader best
described as a tale of two
games for the North Carolina
softball team Sunday, the Tar
Heels recorded a 7-1 win, and
later that afternoon, an 8-5
“The first game we just had
a great mentality and went
out and just attacked the ball,”
coach Donna Papa said. “In
game two, that was Georgia
Early in the first game,
UNC showed flashes of a
problem the team has been
dealing with all season. The
Tar Heels managed to load
the bases with no outs but
failed to bring a run home.
In the second inning,
the Tar Heels again found
themselves in position to pull
ahead of the Yellow Jackets.
Leadoff batter Jenna Kelly
doubled off the rightfield
wall, but the next two batters
both popped out without
advancing her. And, even
with a two-out Elisha Elliott
single, it seemed that UNC
might leave yet another
runner in scoring position.
Kristen Brown, however,
would make sure her Tar
Heels did not let that happen.
Brown sent a rocket clear
over the centerfield wall on
the first pitch of the at-bat,
prompting the stadium
announcer to dub her
“Downtown Kristen Brown.”
“I really liked the first pitch,”
Brown said. “So the first good
pitch I saw, I drove it.”
It proved to be all the
offense UNC needed, as
junior ace Lori Spingola
would only give up one run in
her complete game. The Tar
Heels added four more runs
to accompany 12 total hits in
But once the second game
of the night was underway, the
dominating team that had put
away game one disappeared
with the setting sun.
UNC was held hitless
through three innings while
the Yellow Jackets flew to a
Brown again gave life to
UNC’s offense with two more
home runs, but while those
gave hope to the Tar Heel
faithful, they were not enough
to overcome the deficit.
“Both teams that got ahead
wound up winning the game,”
Papa said. “It just creates a
different mentality and how

Senior Sean Taylor scored
his third career goal in his
final game at Fetzer Field.
Holman said the senior
scout team players have been
the driving force behind the
program’s success during the
past four years.
“They’re team-first guys.
That’s what we want around
here at Carolina. We want
guys who put the team before
themselves, and they’ve cer-
tainly done that for four years
here,” Holman said. “It was
awesome to see them out
here running around, getting
ground balls and scoring a
couple of goals.”
The class of 2013 has pro-
pelled UNC to the 16-team
NCAA Tournament field for
the past three seasons, and the
Tar Heels have finished in the
top 10 of the final Division I
rankings all three years.
UNC now turns its atten-
tion to Friday night, when the
No. 2-seed Tar Heels will take
on No. 3-seed Duke in the
Holman said the team will
focus on keeping its routine
the same to extend its win-
“We don’t want to change
anything, per se, for this week
against Duke,” Holman said.
“We just want to continue
what we’ve been doing for
the past four or five weeks
because we’re riding this win
Holman, with 116 career
goals, is 12 shy of tying UNC’s
all-time leader in goals, and it
will be up to him to keep the
Tar Heels in postseason con-
tention long enough to break
“He’s one of the best all-
time players in Carolina his-
tory,” coach Joe Breschi said.
“I know he doesn’t want his
career to end right now, so
we’ve got a lot in front of us.”

I love Summer School. I wanted to apply to Kenan-Flagler
Business School, and many courses had many
prerequisites. So I strategically planned to take the
most difficult one (Econ 410) the summer after my
freshman year. After being accepted to Kenan-Flagler
my sophomore year, I decided to enroll in Summer
School again. I took the most difficult business
school class for me: Corporate Finance.
Junior, Business Administration
I went through Summer School because Economics and Finance are not my strongest
subjects, and I knew that focusing all my time on one class would be beneficial.
I believe that the grades I earned in my summer classes were better than they
would have been if I had taken these classes during a busy semester with
other classes. Summer School classes are fast paced, but with how
available the teachers are, both summers went really well!
I finished classes by 1:30 and had the rest of the day to work my summer
job and study. There’s nothing greater than a summer at Carolina!

Chaz Frank dives back toward the base during Sunday’s game. The senior outfielder was one-for-five on Sunday but totaled four hits on the weekend.
By Michael Lananna
Benton Moss stood in front of the
Boshamer Stadium dugout, running his hand
over his freshly shaven head.
“I feel cool,” he said, as a brisk spring breeze
blew over the field. “As in cold.”
But Moss wasn’t just chilly. No, the wide
grin stretching across his face showed that he
felt cool in that other way, too.
He had plenty of reason to.
His North Carolina baseball team (39-2,
18-2 ACC) had just capped off a sweep of rival
Duke in a 10-1 blowout. Just a day earlier, on
Saturday, Moss had kicked off the doubleheader
by playing a rousing rendition of the national
anthem on keyboard — much to the delight of
the 2,027 fans in attendance. And in Saturday’s
nightcap, he picked up his seventh win of the
season by tossing 6.2 innings of one-run ball.
But the most important reason Moss had for
feeling cool Sunday was one number: $19,000.
That’s how much money was raised to
fight children’s cancer in UNC and Duke’s Vs.
Cancer Foundation event, and it was the rea-
son why both teams were shaving their heads
on the field after Sunday’s game.
“I think this is the real big event for this
weekend,” said Moss, who helped market and
organize the fundraiser.
“Games are important, but you ask our
coach even, and he’ ll say the big picture in life
is always, always the most important one. So I
think the sweep is just the icing on the cake. I
think this is what takes it.”
Former UNC baseball player and Vs. Cancer
founder Chase Jones had even more reason
to be excited as he saw the Tar Heels and
Blue Devils get their heads shaved in front of
a regular season-record Boshamer Stadium
crowd of 4,255.
After years of running BaseBald, a simi-
Duke and uNC combined to
raise $19,000 with Vs. Cancer.

Katherine Perry’s team had just
played itself out of contention at the
The junior didn’t see that as a rea-
son to be dispirited.
Perry and her fellow North
Carolina women’s golfers drowned
a rough day on a brutal course with
laughter and a few slices of pizza.
Well on their way to a tie for fifth,
the Tar Heels didn’t want to mari-
nate in the misery of their first two
rounds during their final 18 holes
Sunday in Greensboro.
“Our big thing going into the
third round was to just have fun
with it and play for fun,” Perry said
by phone Sunday night.
UNC salvaged a respectable tour-
nament out of the rubble of their first
two rounds with a more stable — and
easygoing — final round. Perry and
junior Casey Grice claimed top-15
individual honors as UNC watched
No. 3 Duke coast to its second con-
secutive conference title.
“We were all disappointed in how
we played,” coach Jan Mann said.
“We’re a much better team than the
results from this weekend.”
The No. 11 Tar Heels met their
match in Sedgefield Country Club,
the annual host of the conference
championship and a PGA Tour
event. Swirling winds and devilish
hole locations that offered mini-
mal room for error stymied UNC
through two rounds.
“It was a fair layout — everyone
was playing the same golf course
— but it was extremely difficult,
especially with the wind,” Perry

It just wasn’t our weekend.”
By Saturday afternoon, the Tar

the leaderboard having left them far
behind — a result, their coach said,
of succumbing to frustration.
“In the first two rounds, they were
probably trying too hard,” Mann

The Duke-UNC rivalry extended well
beyond the ballpark this weekend. Ace starter
Kent Emanuel said the teams even competed
for how much money they could raise.
“Now, we’re spanking them in that catego-

And that’s not the only category UNC
The Tar Heels held Duke (22-20, 8-13) to
just three runs throughout the entire series,
as Emanuel, Moss and Sunday starter Hobbs
Johnson each pitched gems, and Brian
Holberton and the middle of the UNC batting
order provided plenty of offensive punch.
But no one was talking about baseball after
the game — Moss certainly wasn’t.
His head had already been shaved, but he
was willing to go even further if it meant rais-
ing more money for a good cause.
“If anybody’s willing to pony up $1,000 per
eyebrow,” Moss said, “I’ ll do it — if that’ ll get
us up to $20,000.”
He probably wasn’t joking, either.

“We went out with the idea today
that regardless of the conditions,
regardless of how they were play-
ing, they were going to stay upbeat,”
Mann said. “If they saw a teammate
throughout the round, they were
going to encourage them. They did a
good job of that.”
Perry traced the positive vibes
back to her team’s outing after
Saturday’s round. They traded jokes
in an effort to lighten the mood.
It wasn’t enough to diminish the
sting of the Tar Heels’ Greensboro

heightened pressure, Perry hopes her
team learned its lesson this weekend.
“That’s our game plan — just

lighthearted, and that’s what we’re

After a March 13 loss to Duke,
the North Carolina men’s lacrosse
team’s record stood at 3-3 with
seven games remaining.
The Tar Heels bounced back
from that middle-of-the-road start,
winning seven straight, including
Saturday’s 20-8 rout of first-year
program High Point on Senior Day.
All seven active seniors saw
playing time in their last game on
“For a lot of us, we’re not going to
play lacrosse after this in the pros or
anything, so it was definitely a pretty
emotional day,” said senior defense-
man Kieran McDonald.
Fifteen players scored for UNC
in the team’s third 20-goal outburst
in the last 12 years, and 35 different
Tar Heels got playing time.
“It speaks to the talent we have on
this team, the depth we have,” senior
Marcus Holman said. “When guys
got their number called they were
ready to come in and make plays.”
One particular goal stood out,
though — Holman scored in a
school-record 28th consecutive
Fellow seniors Davey Emala,
Stevie Kirkup, Stephen Burns,
William Scroggs and McDonald all
joined Holman in the starting lineup.
Burns doubled his career total
with two assists in the game.

UNC misses podium at ACCs
North Carolina used 35
players in a 20-8 blowout
of high Point Saturday.
By Robbie Harms
Pete Rehder could only watch —
one of the worst mental-strength
exercises for an athlete — as his
team fell one point shy of third
place in the ACC.
Rehder, a senior pole vaulter on
the North Carolina track and field
team, has missed, begrudgingly,
most of this season with a ham-
string injury, including this week-
end’s ACC Outdoor Championships
The men’s team placed fourth
and the women’s sixth, but Rehder,
whom the coaches decided to sit
this weekend in hopes of healing the
injury and readying him for a post-
season run, is convinced he could
have scored points in the pole vault
and thereby lifted his team to third.
Junior distance runner Isaac
Presson said the team was hoping
to land in the top three.
And Rehder said he could have
helped UNC get there by landing a
spot on the podium.
But by attending the meet and
supporting his teammates in what
would have been his last ACC meet
as a college athlete, Rehder demon-
strated his loyalty to the program,
assistant coach Josh Langley said.
“It shows from the moment he’s
walked on this campus he’s been
a team player,” Langley said. “We
have a senior that has bought into
what (head coach Harlis) Meaders
has put into the program.”
Four of Rehder’s workout
partners, Joe Hutchinson, Ryan
Ramsey, Paul Haley and Chadd
Pierce, placed in the top five in the
decathlon at the meet. Hutchinson
won, Ramsey was second, Haley
third and Pierce fifth. Their finish-
es were fueled by their friendly, but
serious, competition in practice.
“Going one, two, three, five in
the decathlon was a huge surprise,”
Langley said. “They compete every
day in practice against each other.”
Hutchinson, a sophomore, was
pinned as the favorite to win after
his closest competitor pulled his
hamstring in the first event of the
decathlon, the 100-meter dash.
“Joe thrives on competition,”
Langley said, adding that the
reduced pressure from having one
less opponent allowed him to calm
down and “focus on the task at hand.”
Presson almost gave North
Carolina another individual gold
medal. He placed second in the
men’s 1,500 meters, finishing exact-
ly one second behind the winner.
His time was 3:45.18.
“The goal was to win,” he said.
Presson said he had two race
strategies, depending on the opening
pace. If it was slow, he would take the
lead after 500 meters. If it was fast,
he would take it with 250 meters
left and try to hold on. Neither hap-
pened: The pace was moderate, and
Presson had to adjust.
“In retrospect I probably
would’ve liked to be a little more
patient,” he said. “(But) it’s always a
good thing when a disappointment
is second at ACCs.”
