hours, but the system isn’t perfect.
“There are still ways to defeat
that,” he said. “But it at least gives
you some sense of who is entering.”
Alexander is looking into increas-
ing the security at Carroll to better
protect against costly thefts, espe-
cially in classroom labs.
“You have to worry about not just
the equipment but also the data
that’s on it,” he said.
Alexander said departments can
purchase insurance through UNC’s
plan but that it usually doesn’t cover
small items, such as a projector.
Randy Young, spokesman for the
Department of Public Safety, said
thefts from academic buildings are
fairly common. He said DPS receives
more reports of stolen items from aca-
demic buildings than residence halls.
“We have hundreds of academic
buildings on campus, and many are
multi-story,” he said. “There’s a lim-
ited number of residence halls.”
Young said the nature of technol-
ogy has made it easier for someone to
walk out of a building with valuable
equipment. He said it’s suspicious to

Victory is sweet — Tar Heels are Elite
By Grace Raynor
Assistant Sports Editor
STANFORD, Calif. — Brittany
Rountree was 19 years old, the clock
paused at 12.7 seconds and the
North Carolina women’s basketball
team was clinging to a two-point
lead when she made her way to the
free throw line.
It was Jan. 8, 2012, and on that
Chapel Hill Sunday, Rountree’s
1-for-2 foul shot performance near
the game’s end set Maryland’s Alyssa
Thomas up for the game’s tying shot.
Thomas knocked it down, sent the
game into overtime. Maryland won.
Now a junior, Rountree still
hasn’t forgotten how deeply that
feeling stung. How dejected she felt
when the final buzzer sounded.
“Yes, I remember that,” she said.
“I remember that, and after that
game I stayed in the gym just shoot-
ing free throws, I was so upset.”
Fast forward two years.
Sunday, in North Carolina’s 65-58
victory against top-seeded South
Carolina to advance to the Elite 8,
Rountree found herself on the line
again — three more times to be
exact, her routine the same each
time.
“I catch the ball, I do two drib-
bles, I spin it,” she said. “I have a
knee sleeve on my right leg and not
on my left, so my shorts usually get
caught ... then I shoot the ball.”
In a 28-second period, Rountree
launched six foul shots.
She made five.
And for the first time since their
1994 National Championship year,
the Tar Heels knocked off a No. 1 seed.
They’ll play No. 2 seeded Stanford
Tuesday for a battle to the Final Four.
“That answer is a yes,” said associ-
ate head coach Andrew Calder of
planning to feed Rountree the ball
in the final minutes. “We were up
one ... tonight the emphasis was to
get the ball to Brittany at the end of
the game.”
And she executed.
The locker room buzzed, as the
North Carolina players hugged and
yelled. A modest Rountree nestled
herself in a corner between her

STEPS TOWARD A CURE

UNC’s annual Relay for Life event began with a Survivor Lap Friday night in Eddie Smith Field House.
Relay for Life participants raised more than $120,000
By Bradley Saacks
Staff Writer
One in 8,000: Those were
the odds that Elizabeth Arditti‘s
tumor was malignant.
She was diagnosed with ovar-
ian cancer during the pregnancy
of her fourth child, after a sched-
uled ultrasound revealed an
unknown mass.
The news she received in
2000 defied those odds.
“I was the one, not the 7,999,”
Arditti said.
“A lot of us would have said,
‘Why me?,’ but I decided to
rephrase the question... ‘Why not
me? How can I use this experi-
ence for good?’”
Arditti was the luminary
speaker for this year’s Relay
for Life, which had 1,325 par-
ticipants, raising more than
$120,000 for the American
Cancer Society.
Sophomore Alex Arditti,
chairman of corporate sponsor-
ships for Relay for Life, was able
to hear his mother speak about
her experience having cancer.
“It was a really challenging
time for her in her life and hear-
ing her speak is always special,”
Alex Arditti said, who was in ele-
mentary school when his mother
was diagnosed.
“She is the reason that I relay.”
Co-director of UNC’s Relay for
Life, Will Yokeley, said the dona-
tion period is not over yet.
“Usually, Relay is later in the
semester but due to conflicting
schedules with lacrosse and track
and field, we had to push the
date up,” Yokeley said.
“We kinda had to push harder
to get all of our donations in by
this event because it is tough to
get people fundraise after the
event is over, but our goal for the
end of April is $150,000.”

Lewis incident
By Jane Wester
Staff Writer
A relatively peaceful Friday night in Lewis
Residence Hall escalated quickly into chaos as
one third floor resident being shot with a Taser
and taken into custody.
According to an Alert Carolina email sent out
the next morning, Department of Public Safety
officers brought sophomore Charles Talmadge,
20, into custody not long after they arrived at
Lewis at approximately 11:18 p.m.
“Department of Public Safety Police officers
responded to the report of a male individual
who was unclothed and acting erratically... (he)
had entered another resident’s room and had
reportedly sexually assaulted a female,” officials
wrote in the email.
DPS spokesman Randy Young declined to
comment on whether or not officers had con-
firmed a sexual assault had taken place.
Talmadge was charged with breaking and
entering, resist/obstruct/delay of arrest, assault
on law enforcement officers,
vandalism, possession of
marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia.
Sophomore Ian Gallager,
who lives on Talmadge’s floor,
said that he encountered his
neighbor at about 10:30 p.m.
“He was completely naked
and just stumbling around,
completely uncoordinated,”
Gallager said. “It was really
weird. I’ve never seen anyone
quite like that before.”
Gallager said that
Talmadge was not aggressive
at that point in the evening.
“He would kind of respond to us, if we told
him, ‘Charlie, stop,’” he said. “He was very
peaceful. You could just kind of touch him on
the shoulder and he would just collapse.”
Gallager saw Talmadge return to his own
room and close the door after wandering the
hallway and hoped that he had gone to bed.
“I heard about what happened later in the
night, and it was hard to believe that he’d gotten
so, I guess, violent, especially because when we
saw him he was barely even capable of walking,”
Gallager said.
At about 10:40 p.m., Talmadge arrived at the
door of another hallmate, sophomore Harry
Riegel.
Riegel noticed that Talmadge was bleeding

DTH/ARAMIDE GBADAMOSI
Sophomore Lisa Marie Myers, left, and junior Natalia Gonzalez-Chavez launched their new clothing line in 1789 Venture Lab on Friday.
By Daniel Schere
Assistant University Editor
Like its meeting on Jan. 17, the UNC
Faculty Council’s meeting on Friday in
Wilson Library was met with a packed
house.
But unlike the last meeting, it did
not feature anything that caused a
stir.
The group discussed a number
of topics including contextual tran-
scripts, changes to the honor system,
and the University’s public records
policy, but did not reveal the results
of an outside data review of former
learning specialist Mary Willingham’s
research.
Executive Vice Chancellor and
Provost Jim Dean said a team of three
experts is conducting the investigation,
and the results should be available this
week.
“You’ ll have that very soon,” he said.
Sociology professor Andy Perrin
unveiled a model for contextualized
transcripts, which will be offered for
all courses with more than 10 students
beginning in the fall.
The transcripts, which are used only
by a handful of schools, add informa-
tion such as median course grade and
cumulative GPA.
The concept was developed in April
2010 and was approved the next year.
“When it was a proposal, we spent a
remarkable amount of time in conver-
sation with student government,” he
said.
“Now that we’ve got what we wanted,
we need to step up and make sure that
this process works well.”
The transcript will also include a
new statistic called schedule point
average, the average semester grade
point average for a student taking any
particular set of courses. Perrin said
the SPA will not be used to gauge an
individual student’s academic ability.
“I don’t think we’re going to make
a strong claim as a university that the
difference between GPA and SPA is a
measure of achievement,” he said.
Perrin said there a still a few kinks
that need to be worked out.
Some faculty members said they
were confused that the method catego-
rizes students at the top of their class as
being in the zero percentile instead of
the 99th.
In addition to contextual tran-
scripts, changes to the Honor Code
were also presented at the meeting,
including the introduction of an “XF”
grade, which would indicate that
a student who failed a course also
committed a violation to the Honor
Code.
UNC School of Law’s Associate
Dean of Affairs and Professor Richard
Myers said the Honor Code does not
distinguish between undergraduates
and graduate students.
Myers pointed out one particular
change which will expand the defini-
tion of plagiarism to include multiple
submissions of the same work in differ-
ent courses, otherwise known as self-
plagiarism.
“We had folks who were in different
places, particularly in plagiarism cases,”
Myers said.

Junior Natalia Gonzalez-Chavez
and sophomore Lisa Marie Myers
had a busy week. They had assign-
ments to complete, exams to study
for, papers to finish — and a com-
pany to launch on Friday.
Artwear Designs is Chavez and
Myers’s brainchild. Combining
the arts and fashion, Chavez and
Myers find designs from young
aspiring artists around the United
States and print them on tank
tops and T-shirts.
“We want to give young mil-
lennials an outlet to purchase
artwork in a way that they’re not
spending hundreds of dollars on a
painting that ends up on the wall
where you can only look at it from
afar,” Chavez said.
“Instead, we want them to have
a wearable art they can take with
them wherever they go.”
Chavez, who has had a jewelry-
making business since she was
14-years-old, expressed to Myers a
desire to change the direction of her
business last year. Myers offered her
help, and the partnership began.
“I’ve always painted growing up,
and I’d always thought it’d be awe-
some to be an artist,” Myers said.
“But I didn’t want to be a starving
artist, so when she approached me
I was like, ‘Yes, let’s go.’”
Chavez and Myers — both pur-
suing minors in entrepreneurship
— brought their concept to UNC’s
JNO Awards in Entrepreneurship,
and despite of their lack of experi-
ence, they impressed the judges
and received a grant of $3,000 to
promote their brand.
“Just knowing that someone is
willing to give us money to make
it happen really gave me a sense
that we can do this,” Chavez said.
Aaron Scarboro, director of
1789 Venture Lab, an organization
that houses UNC startups, said
Chavez and Myers’s business plan
is unique.
“You don’t see a lot of compa-
nies that can combine that artistic
vision with a really good business
sense,” Scarboro said.
Chavez and Myers have also
received recognition for being one
of the few female-run ventures.
“In my entrepreneurial lab
class, I’m the only female, non-
business school student who’s
there, and there was not a single
female entrepreneur presenting
throughout the semester,” Chavez
said. “We’ve got to represent, and
I’m so proud to do that.”
The brand has eight artists from
eight different cities contributing
to its premiere collection, and a
portion of their earnings from each
order is given to the artist.
Everything from the produc-
tion of the raw materials to the
screen printing is done locally. The
response to the company’s products
has been positive, with more than
25 percent of its inventory selling
on its first day. Junior Shelby Bass
was one of its customers.
“I like the fact that it goes
beyond Chapel Hill,” Bass said.
“There’s some sort of unity
through the diversity that you see
in the artwork here.”
Chavez and Myers’s work
doesn’t stop here — their next
goal is to launch an Indiegogo
campaign to raise funds for their
next collection.
“We not only want to make a
name for us locally,” Chavez said.
“We also want to make a fashion
brand for us in the U.S., and hope-
fully around the world.”

Democrats look to take control of state
By Kathryn Trogdon
Senior Writer
GREENVILLE — At the Young
and College Democrats of North
Carolina convention this week-
end, the message was clear — the
Democratic Party wants to retake
control of the state legislature and
the governor’s mansion by 2016.
Well-known N.C. Democrats,
including Sen. Kay Hagan, state
Attorney General Roy Cooper and
U.S. Congress hopeful Clay Aiken,
spoke about college affordability,
voting rights, tax policies and other
issues at the event in Greenville.
Hagan opened the event, saying
she was focused on “common sense
issues” like college affordability.
“As a mom of three young adults,
I know how important and how
expensive a good education can
be,” she said in the speech. “I am
committed to keeping the dream of
attending college within reach for
every North Carolina student that
wants to pursue it.”
Hagan said last year, college
loan interest rates were supposed
to increase from 3.4 percent to 6.8
percent, but she supported a bill
against the increase.
Hagan said she would also
fight to support the voting rights
of North Carolinians. She criti-
cized state House Speaker Thom
Tillis, widely considered the lead
Republican challenger for her seat
in November, for helping pass the
voter identification bill last session,
which cut back early voting.
State Sen. Josh Stein, D-Wake,
said the law was a way for the
Republicans to take away the
rights of Democratic voters.
“If you don’t think like them, they
are determined to keep as many of
you from voting as they can,” he said.
“That’s why they’re moving early vot-
ing sites away from campus. They
don’t want students to vote.”
Attorney General Roy Cooper
said that during the last 15 months,
“extremist Republicans” have
deliberately turned back 50 years
of progress, including forcing 80
percent of residents to pay more
in taxes to give a tax break to the
wealthiest 1 percent.
But he said instead of waiting
until November to make change,
public outcry has already made the
Republican majority reconsider
issues such as teacher pay.
“It is not nearly enough, but
we’ve pushed them into talking
about it,” he said.
Some Democrats from North
Carolina have already emerged to
challenge Republican legislators.
Clay Aiken, a former American
Idol runner-up aiming to become
a U.S. Congress candidate, said he
decided to run for Congress when
he realized he had been redistricted
after looking at his ballot in 2012.
“It upset me and frustrated me,
and I realized maybe I should start
using this microphone in a different
way,” he said. “People won’t step up

a conference with College
Democrats this weekend.
Aldermen, company work together to redevelop property
By Joey DeVito
Staff Writer
A long-neglected property at 501
S. Greensboro St. is getting some
much-needed attention.
The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
is working with Woodhill N.C. as the
company tries to develop the land.
The property has not been used in
years because of a flooding problem
caused by a drainage system that is
too small for the amount of water
that comes through the property,
Alderman Damon Seils said.
The land was previously used as a
light manufacturing plant, but moved
because of the flooding problems.
“This property that we have
purchased has been sitting there
abandoned and derelict for 20 years
now, and it floods, and it’s just a ter-
rible eyesore on a main entrance to
Carrboro,” said Runyon Woods Jr., a
partner at Woodhill.
“An opportunity exists for us to
bring light manufacturing back to
the site and intermix it with restau-
rant and retail.”
But the proposed addition of res-
taurants to the property is holding
up Woodhill’s plans.
The site is in an M-1 zoning district,
which allows light manufacturing, but
does not allow restaurants, according
to the town’s Land Use Ordinance .
Woods presented a potential change
to the zoning laws to the board
Tuesday that would allow restaurants
to be built on M-1 properties.
Seils said the property’s drainage
system needs to be replaced, a task
that is very costly. Woodhill is look-
ing to recover the costs by develop-
ing the land for restaurants, which
can be more profitable than manu-
facturing plants.
“One of the reasons (Woods) was
looking for an amendment to the
M-1 zoning classification was that it
might allow him to place some new
types of uses on the property, like res-
taurants, that tend to have a higher
return on investment,” Seils said.
The board rejected Woods’ pro-
posal and instead decided to try to
DTH/CHRIS CONWAY
The Carrboro Board of Aldermen is working with Woodhill N.C. to develop
property at 501 S. Greensboro St. in Carrboro.
Woodhill N.C. is hoping
to bring new life to
501 S. Greensboro St.
create a new M-2 classification, which
would reward developers for making
substantial changes to a property.
“There would be a tradeoff between
the developer giving the town some-
thing, and then the town allowing the
additional special uses,” Seils said.
In the case of the Greensboro
Street property, the developer would
fix the drainage issue in exchange for
the ability to put restaurants on the
property, he said.
Woods said he was fine with the

Seils said he expects the draft for

next month or two. He was the only
Alderman to oppose the the creation
of the M-2 zone.
“I didn’t see a need to essentially
duplicate the M-1 zoning district,”
Seils said. “I didn’t think that was
necessary, I think it was a little more
complicated than it needed to be.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY
FEATURED ONLINE READER COMMENT
UNC brands must
join The Accord
TO THE EDITOR:
Since last September,
when Student Action with
Workers (SAW) wrote
to Chancellor Carol Folt
to urge the University
require its licensees to
sign The Accord on Fire
and Building Safety in
Bangladesh (The Accord),
UNC’s Licensing Labor
Code Advisory Committee
has met monthly to con-
sider a wide array of infor-
mation. The committee
was tasked with examining
SAW’s request and report-
ing to the Chancellor’s
Cabinet.
In the wake of a series
of deadly factory disasters
in Bangladesh, including
the Rana Plaza factory col-
lapse which killed 1,1100
workers, over 150 apparel
companies, have joined The
Accord and committed to
fix unsafe factories. Twelve
other universities, includ-
ing Duke University, as well
as the U.S. Marine Corps,
require their licensees to
join The Accord — and that
list is growing. The alterna-
tive option considered by
the Committee was The
Alliance for Bangladesh
Worker Safety, an agree-
ment between 26 compa-
nies. Unlike The Accord,
The Alliance does not
include worker representa-
tives in its governance and
implementation and does
not require companies to
pay for repairs to factories.
These deficiencies make it
unenforceable and, in my
view, unworthy of UNC’s
support. In fact, a large
majority of the Committee
is in favor of requiring
UNC licensees to join The
Accord.
This is ultimately a
decision about prioritiz-
ing human rights and
worker safety over profit
margins. As Joe Bozich,
CEO of one of UNC’s
brands and Accord mem-
ber, Knights Apparel, told
the Committee, “it’s just
good business.” I urge
the Chancellor to require
UNC brands to join The
Accord, to maintain this
University’s commitment
to the highest human ide-
als. No other university has
considered the Alliance a
viable alternative, and UNC
should not be the first.

TO THE EDITOR:
Last Thursday morning,
driving west on the 200
block of McCauley Street, I
encountered a fellow on a
skateboard going east on the
north side of the road (to
my right). Unfortunately for
him, another car was head-
ing east in the same area at
the same time, where park-
ing is also allowed. So three
cars were roughly parallel in
the same spot at the same

Trying
out the
new Old
Chicago
I
spent the first 15 years
of my life living just out-
side of Boston, Mass.,
which, in effect, makes me a
Northerner. Every once in a
while, people will ask me what
I miss the most about living up
north.
I’ll think about it for a few
minutes, and then with full
confidence I will say, “the food.”
Although Southern fried
chicken and grits have their
merits, nothing truly compares
to a hearty northern bagel or
an authentic New England
Italian cannoli, or — dare I
say — a real New York slice
of pizza. Praise the food gods
for blessing us with such a
miracle!
So, as a fairly harsh critic,
my expectations were set extra
high walking into Chapel Hill’s
newest pizza and beer loca-
tion, Old Chicago Pizza and
Taproom.
Upon first entering the
restaurant just off of Church
Street, you’ ll notice how the
facility is unexpectedly large.
Dining tables and booths take
up almost one half of the area,
while the other half is occupied
by a lengthy bar top and sev-
eral raised tables with stools.
A particularly interesting
feature is its garage door style
windows located on the back
wall behind the bar. These
windows can be raised to cre-
ate an island bar setup so that
people sitting outside can be
served at the bar without ever
having to walk through a door.
Raising these windows effec-
tively doubles the bar space
available, which greatly reduces
the number of thirsty people
cluttered around, making it eas-
ier for customers to get a drink.
Their beer selection is exten-
sive. The full page menu cate-
gorizes their entire selection by
type and taste, so that custom-
ers can try new products that
sound appealing and also have
an idea of what to expect.
However, I’ve found the
menu can be overwhelming
and intimidating for those of us
who aren’t your everyday beer
connoisseurs — I’m still strug-
gling with what it means to
have “floral notes” in my drink.
Unfortunately, the staff is
new, and they make it abun-
dantly clear. The night I went,
there were three times as many
bartenders as anywhere else on
Franklin Street, yet somehow
it took three times as long to
be served. I wouldn’t count it
against them though, since the
establishment has only been
operating for a couple weeks,
and I’m sure most are first-
time bartenders.
The shining star and great-
est selling point that this place
offers has got to be its late
night $2 personal pizza special.
Drunken customers are invited
to come any time between 10
p.m. and closing to satisfy their
midnight munchies.
The pizza itself is not the
best tasting slice I’ve ever had,
but compared to other options
found here in the South, it
tastes pretty great. I forged
myself a mushroom and bacon
masterpiece, and consumed
every last bite.
I have a feeling this place
will become a Tar Heel staple
in due time. It has one of the
best locations in the area,
impressive food, a wide variety
of drinks and lots of public
attention. I look forward to
seeing how they do over the
next few months.

a skateboard trying to get
through who, fortunately,
was unscathed.
This morning I read a
news item about a mid-
shipman at the U.S. Naval
Academy who was skate-
boarding next to a slowly
moving vehicle when he fell
beneath its rear wheel and
died, though he was wear-
ing a helmet at the time
and seems to have been
a far more accomplished
athlete than the unknown
bozo I encountered last
Thursday.
Whether it’s failure to
stop at stop signs, texting
while driving, running with
earphones blaring music
that drowns out surround-
ing traffic sounds, leaving
their home doors unlocked
or skateboarding on busy
streets, UNC students too
often exhibit a total lack of
common sense.
Perhaps UNC should
start offering entering
freshman a required course
on common sense safety
precautions? Clearly, a lot
of students here need to
take one.

A former athlete’s
take on the scandal
TO THE EDITOR:
I would like to thank the
six athletes who attended
the UNC Board of Trustees
meeting to give their view-
point. As a former UNC
athlete, I’m so tired of the
constant negative remarks
about our athletes and the
stereotype about their lack
of intelligence and academic
skills. I find it extremely
hypocritical to cheer for
these athletes then turn
around and cut them down
with insults. How does that
affect these students who are
spending countless hours
going to class, studying and
training in their sports?
The number of hours of
training required to stay on
the level of other Division I
athletes is insane. Like our
football player Ryan Switzer
attested to, when combined
with classes and studying,
this makes for an extremely
long day.
When I was a gymnast
here, I worked out every
day — organized practice
was five days a week, three
to three and half hours a day
in the afternoon to early eve-
ning. I then ate dinner and
studied. My body was physi-
cally exhausted, so staying up
late and pulling all-nighters
did not work. I also worked
out on weekends by myself.
The dedication that athletes
have to their sport and their
school should be praised, not
criticized.
I can also attest to the
negative attitudes of instruc-
tors towards athletes. I actu-
ally had a professor tell me
that he did not like athletes
and did not want me in his
section of a class. Students
can be swayed by this and
the attitude of the researcher
when taking part in surveys.
I tend to side with the stu-
dent-athlete, for I have been
in their shoes.

U

Winston Crisp and the
UNC-system Board of
Governors are exploring
ways to lower student fees,
which have climbed 11 per-
cent in the last six years.
With the issue of wheth-
er or not to raise or lower
student fees being a press-
ing matter at the UNC’s
Board of Trustees most
recent meeting, the board
must appreciate the vital
role UNC’s Campus Health
services provide to the UNC
community. While grant-

increase to Campus Health-
Make the right cuts
EDITORIAL
related fees might be too
hard of a pill to swallow for
the board, it should not cut
Campus Health Services
to meet the proposed $20
student fee reduction.
One such service pro-
vided by Campus Health
that Crisp has considered
cutting funding for is sexual
health education. At a time
in UNC’s history partly
defined by the University’s
stances towards sexual
health and sexual assault
risk reduction, it seems
highly counter intuitive to
cut from this area.
Similarly, cutting fund-
ing from access or inclu-
sion programs that deal
with diversity at a time
of notable lows for some
minority groups on cam-
pus seems misguided.
The issue seems to cen-
ter around the UNC Board
of Trustees’s lack of appre-
ciation for the necessity
of sexual health programs
for students. In Crisp’s
pending proposal to the
board concerning where
and how funding should
be changed, Crisp should
highlight the importance
of sexual health and diver-
sity programs. Plenty of
other Campus Health pro-
grams funded by student
fees may have less of an
impact on the University
when experiencing minor
cuts, such as Interactive
Carolina Theater and
other nutrition and stress
relief outreach programs.
One way or another, the
suggested $20 cut to stu-
dent fees should not place
valuable services from
Campus Health at risk.
Campus Health
Services are too
important to cut.

The minimum stipend
awarded to graduate stu-

an amount falling $5,600
below the livable wage in
Orange County when stu-
dent fees are considered
and ranking third lowest
when compared to UNC’s
peer public institutions.
It is important to raise
the minimum because
stipends reflect the value
Raise the bar
EDITORIAL
that UNC gives to its
graduate students. The
Graduate and Professional
Student Federation
estimates that raising
the minimum stipend
by $5,600 to match the
livable wage in Orange
County would amount to a
total cost of $3.3 million.
Increasing the stipend by
such a significant amount
might seem unreasonable,
but it is important to note
that several graduate pro-
grams already pay stipends
greater than $20,800.
These programs are usu-
ally in the math, natural
science and health science
departments, while lower
payouts are more prevalent
in humanitarian and social
science departments.
Raising the minimum
would not only improve
UNC’s ranking compared
to its counterparts, it would
also attract top students
who would have otherwise
taken their skills to schools
paying higher stipends.
Former Provost Bruce
Carney and the Board of
Trustees have been sup-
portive of the need for an
increase in the minimum
stipend — advocating their
support by implementing a
$500 increase at the end of
2013, with another $500
increase set to go into
effect at the end of 2014.
Raising the minimum
stipend to match the living
wage would make UNC a
more competitive option
for students strapped for
cash while also ensuring
that UNC continues to
bring in the most competi-
tive students in the nation.
Increasing stipends
would benefit UNC
and students.
D
ue to budget
changes at the
federal, state and
local levels, public transit
systems across the coun-
try are facing impending
financial challenges.
Since Chapel Hill Transit
has made clear its determi-
nation to keep the system
fare-free, it is essential the
University should contrib-
ute significantly to this
effort considering so much
of the UNC community
takes advantage of the free
buses every day.
This academic year,
each student paid $145.74
in student fees toward the
town’s fare-free transit sys-
Free for all
EDITORIAL
tem, which includes Chapel
Hill Transit and other ser-
vices such as the P2P. For
a student who uses these
services regularly, that’s a
great deal — and those who
don’t still reap the benefits
through reduced traffic,
cleaner air and more acces-
sible parking.
In light of recent budget
cuts to the transit system,
the University should com-
mit to shouldering more of
the cost in upcoming years.
A very slight increase in
each student’s contribution
could make a huge differ-
ence overall.
Between 30 and 40
percent of Chapel Hill
Transit’s local revenue
currently comes from the
University, with Chapel
Hill and Carrboro cover-
ing the rest. Considering
the huge number of stu-
dents who rely on the free
and efficient system, the
University must do its part
to make sure Chapel Hill
Transit remains fare-free.
With help from a con-
sulting firm, the town is
undertaking a Strategic
and Financial Plan to con-
sider future resources and
funding possibilities for
Chapel Hill Transit. When
discussing this issue, they
should look closely at the
potential impact of an
increase to the student
transit fee.
The fare-free system
decreases the number
of cars on the road and
promotes environmen-
tal friendliness. It is the
University’s responsibility
to do all it can in support
of these values.
UNC must continue
to support Chapel
Hill Transit.

teammates behind the wall,
not wanting to put the atten-
tion on herself.
Quickly, she began to speak
of Diamond DeShields, who
led the Tar Heels with 19
points despite only playing 12
minutes in the first half.
DeShields went down with
an ankle twist fewer than
three minutes into the game
trying to defend Aleighsa
Welch in transition. Ten
minutes later, she hobbled
off the court again, this time
after aggravating an already-
injured knee.
“Coach wanted to sit me
for the half, I told him I was
ready to play,” DeShields said.
“I didn’t want to have that
burden on my shoulders of
not having done everything
that I could to contribute to
the team win.”
Calder said her grit was
unsurprising — completely
expected.
“She’s a competitor like you
can’t believe,” he said. “You’re
not going to hold her back
from being out there, and she’ll
be out there on Tuesday night.”
He also thanked Sylvia
Hatchell and North Carolina
women’s soccer coach Anson
Dorrance for giving the team
motivating pregame speeches.
Hatchell promised her
players that they if it made it
to the Final Four, she’d join
them on the court. And now,
they’re one game away.
“We haven’t been here at
this point in a while, and
we want to see our name in
the museum, we want to be
able to say we did that, and
definitely we want to fight
for coach Hatchell,” Rountree
said.
“She’ ll get to come watch
us in Tennessee — just like a
mother watching the game.”
And on Sunday, nearly
3,000 miles away, that moth-
er was proud.

He said almost everyone
who participated in the event
has a direct link to cancer,
whether through a loved one
or a friend or if they them-
selves have fought the disease.
For Yokeley, it was his little
sister who died of cancer
when she was 13.
“When I came to UNC,
Relay seemed like the perfect
thing for me to get involved
with because it is a great
chance to help people with
cancer and make an impact
with all of the money we raise
every year.”
For the first time in
Yokeley’s time at UNC, the
event was entirely indoors
due to the weather, but he
said that did not quell the
spirits of the students and
community members in
attendance.
There were performances
from step teams, multiple
on-campus musical groups
and, for the first time ever
performing at Relay for Life,
an alternative rock cover
band called Mr. Fred, with
their namesake coming from
a security guard who works at
Woollen Gymnasium.
There were also volunteers
who had Google Glass, which
they allowed participants
to borrow to film their laps
around the makeshift track
and the live performances
from unique perspectives.
Senior Chelsea Kutner
raised the most money of all
the participants, with more
than $14,000.
She has participated every
year she has been at UNC and
said the time spent at Relay
for Life is worth it for the
luminary ceremony.
“The main purpose of the
ceremony is to remember
and honor the people that do
have cancer... For me, that is
my grandmother who passed
away from brain cancer when
I was six,” Kutner said.
While many stories of par-
ticipants ended with the loss of
a loved one, Elizabeth Arditti’s
story provided inspiration to
newly-diagnosed people, as
both she and her youngest son
survived the cancer.
“We named him Joshua
because it means ‘the one
who saves,’” Elizabeth Arditti
said.
“And I truly believe Joshua
saved my life.”

“Charlie would barrel roll

After removing Talmadge

desktop but that as technology
has gotten smaller, UNC has
become more vulnerable.
“Never has there been
more value residing in small
packages,” he said.
Jim Clinton, director of card
operations at UNC’s One Card
office, said the department that
occupies each building deter-
mines the building’s schedule
for locking the main doors.
“Any time you have build-
ings unlocked, you’re going to
be exposed to those things,”
he said.
Clinton said each depart-
ment also determines who
has access to the building
once the doors are locked.
He said some buildings give
faculty and staff access while
other buildings allow stu-
dents to gain access.
Paul Cole, building facili-
ties manager for Hill Hall,
said the building is open to
music majors and minors
and ensemble members after
hours so they can utilize the
basement practice rooms.
“We have signs in the prac-
tice rooms urging students
to always lock their practice
room door, not to open their
door to strangers and to
report suspicious persons or
incidents to campus police,”
Cole said in an email.
Cole said problems can
arise when students use their
One Card to swipe in at night
but allow someone else to
“piggyback” through. He said
they want to be polite and not
shut a door in someone’s face.
“But unfortunately that’s
what you have to do some-
times for this type of system
to work properly,” he said.
Sarah Haines, a freshman
music major, said it’s common
for students to practice in Hill
Hall as late as midnight.
“People like to practice,”
she said. “People are always
there usually.”
She said most of the valu-
able equipment in Hill Hall is
large and could be difficult to
steal, but it could happen.
“If you saw a random person
walking out with a keyboard,
you might question it,” she said.
“But if it’s in the middle of the
night, it might be pretty easy.”

Safety of walking to
school to be reviewed
By Claire Nielsen
Staff Writer
Calling all Carrboro
fourth-graders: the Board of
Aldermen wants to hear from
you.
The board is searching for
town residents — and local
elementary, middle and high
schoolers — to be pa rt of its
newly created Safe Routes
to School Implementation
Committee.
The committee will consist
of 12 members, including
three local students: one
appointed from a district
elementary school, one from
a middle school and one from
a high school. The students
will have the ability to vote on
proposed plans.
“That’s pretty exciting, to
have kids who are part of
these schools having a sig-
nificant say,” said Alderman
Sammy Slade.
Alderman Damon Seils
said the committee was cre-
ated as a part of the Safe
Routes to School Action
Plan adopted by the board in
2010.
“The job of the commit-
tee will be to implement the
action plan,” he said.
Seils said Carrboro receives
federal funds for the Safe
Routes to School program,
which encourages students to
safely walk and bike to school
as opposed to taking other
forms of transportation.
The town has coordinated
Safe Routes programs in the
past, but now input from
other members of the com-
munity will be officially con-
sidered.
The committee will help
recommend policies, events
and projects to make it safer
and more convenient for
students walking or biking
to school. These may range
from improving bike lanes
and sidewalks near schools
to organizing education
programs for students to
encourage walking and bik-
ing.
“I think the committee is
going to have exciting work to
do,” Seils said.
The committee will also
include a representative from
the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City
Schools Board of Education
and one from the district’s
administration.
While safety of their
students is always a major
topic of conversation among
district officials, transporta-
tion safety specifically is not
always a top priority, said
Jeff Nash, spokesman for the
district.
“In the conversations about
safety, they typically don’t
include transportation,” he

Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., introduced Bill Clinton at Pullen Park in Raleigh on Nov. 4, 2012.
FROM THE BLOGS
By Eric Garcia
Senior Writer
When Sen. Kay Hagan,
D-N.C, travels the state,
people ask why lawmakers
in Washington are unable to
compromise, which is why she
values being named America’s
most moderate senator, a
ranking she received from the
National Journal last month.
“It shows that I can work
across the aisle to get things
done,” she said in a phone
interview Friday.
Though the Republican
Senate primary still looms,
Hagan is targeting N.C. House
Speaker Thom Tillis as a likely
opponent in November.
Hagan’s seat is seen as one
of the most vulnerable seats in
the 2014 midterm elections.
The University of Virginia’s
Center for Politics labeled the
race a toss-up in a year when
Democrats are expected to
have a tough challenge.
Hagan’s polling numbers
have been improving slightly,
with the latest Public Policy
Polling study giving her an
edge over Tillis and tying or
surpassing other Republicans,
but her approval rating still
lags at 41 percent.
But the N.C. General
Assembly has only a 17 percent
approval rating, according to
Public Policy Polling data. By
positioning herself against
Tillis, Hagan might gain an
advantage by contrasting her-
self with an unpopular institu-
tion in the state.
“I think North Carolinians
will clearly see and know
who is on their side come this
November,” Hagan said.
As a member of the Senate
Health Education, Labor and
Pensions Committee, Hagan
said she has worked to make
supporting higher education
a large part of her record.
She supported the law
that prevented student loan
rates from doubling last year,
and she also supports efforts
to simplify the financial aid
process for students to know
their options as part of the
reauthorization of the Higher
Education Act.
“Another part of the Higher
Ed Act is to innovate,” she
said. “We need to look at
paths to a credential including
competency-based education,
which can incorporate tech-
nology, to a (system) based on
how much a student knows
versus how many hours he or
she sits in a classroom.”
Hagan also realizes col-
lege students’ vote will be
integral to her re-election
campaign and said she is
planning a large voter turn-
out effort.
She criticized the voter
identification law Tillis sup-
ported, which prevents the use
of student IDs at the polls.

said. “Usually we’re talking
about campuses.”
But Nash said the discus-
sion of transportation safety
for students is important.
“We are always interested
in exploring ways to make our
students safer getting to and
from school,” he said.
Michael Christian, a
Carrboro resident and a
professor in the Kenan-
Flagler Business School,
has been active in the past
with the issue of cyclist and
pedestrian safety in town.
Last year, he and other
residents formed “Safe to
Walk Carrboro,” a group that
petitioned for sidewalks to
be constructed on South
Greensboro Street.
Christian said the unsafe
walking conditions in town
are due in part to the roads
being built at a time when
Carrboro had a smaller popu-
lation.
“They weren’t really pre-
pared for the automobile traf-
fic that we have now,” he said.
Christian said he approves
of the creation of the commit-
tee and believes it will benefit
not only students but the
community as a whole.
“I think the creation of this
committee is a really great
step to promoting public
health and happiness,” he
said. “It’s a great way to gen-
erate funding for infrastruc-
ture projects that can help
with sidewalks and bike lanes
and improve our community
quality.”

A Carrboro committee
will aim to improve
student safety.
“That’s pretty excit-
ing, to have kids who
are part of these
schools having a sig-
nificant say.”

Talking Sidewalks displays
art, writing from homeless
COURTESY OF MAGGIE LATTA
Gary Harwell was a contributor to Talking Sidewalks magazine
and one of the first writers for the magazine. He passed away
this past summer from cancer.
By Megan Caron
Staff Writer
What started as weekly
creative writing sessions has
grown into an organization giv-
ing voice to a group many UNC
students see, but may overlook.
Talking Sidewalks, a maga-
zine that features writing and
artwork by the homeless and
impoverished, began in 2008
as an extension of Homeless
Outreach Poverty Eradication,
within the Campus Y.
The new edition of the
magazine is set to be released
April 12 and will feature piec-
es collected over the last year.
“The idea came from these
writing sessions that were hap-
pening each week that they
should turn what was being
written into a publication to
distribute to the community,”
said junior Nikhil Umesh, edi-
tor of the magazine.
Sophomore Rhett Gough,
distribution and media director
for the magazine, said the goal
of the publication has been to
increase awareness and break
down the stigma of homeless-
ness in the community.
Sophomore Maitreyee
Singh is the organizer for the
women’s shelter project, an
attempt to connect Talking
Sidewalks with Chapel Hill’s
Homestart Women’s Shelter.
Singh said the community’s
response to the project has
been very positive.
“It’s humanizing the expe-
rience of homelessness rather
than an abject occurrence
that we witness and that we
realize is happening in our
midst, but realizing that these
are people with stories and
important feelings,” she said.
Umesh said that through
Talking Sidewalks he discov-
ered that many people have a
hard time discussing poverty
because they cannot relate to
the experience of homeless-
ness.
“It’s only through conversa-
tion that we are able to break
down these barriers and have
some level of really good
understanding of what a lot

It was a rock-climbing
competition that drew
14-year-old Fayetteville native
Kai Lightner to town this
weekend.
Lightner garnered a perfect
score in the preliminary com-
petition and later placed first
in the men’s opener.
This past August, Lightner
competed in his first
International Federation of
Sport Climbing Youth World
championship in Canada and
placed 4th in the 14-15-year-
old age group.
He started climbing at
the age of 6. A year later he
competed in his first nation-
als.
“I always wanted to be
really good,” he said, “Sounds
cliche, but I wanted to be like
the people I look up to.”
This weekend the Chapel
Hill Community Center
hosted the annual Dixie
Rock Climbing Competition.
The oldest annual indoor
rock climbing competition
in the country celebrated
its 25th year with an 80s
theme.
More than 100 people
competed in the event spon-
sored by companies includ-
ing REI, Eno and Whole
Foods.
The event’s founder Ben
Webster said he is excited
the competition has become
more popular after a decrease
in participation the past few
years.
“It was actually biggest in
the first couple years because
climbing competitions were
new and exploding around
the country, and there were
actually very few gyms, so we
had people driving around
from surrounding states,” he
said.
“We had to cut off and say
we could only handle this
many. As more gyms were
built, the numbers dwindled.
They actually got pretty low
last year.”
Fresh hire Sarah Wolfe
reenergized the event,
Webster said.
“We hired Sarah who has
breathed new life into the
event this year,” he said. “She
really did a lot of marketing,
and the numbers are back up
to over a hundred now.”
In the preliminary rounds,
climbers could attempt six
routes.
They would receive a
score for the highest hold
they touched. The top 5
scorers in each division dur-
ing the preliminary round
were invited to the finals for
that division.

“He always climbed every-

“Baby gates at 6 months
before he was walking. I had
to take them down out the
house because he thought it
was like a toy for him”
She said her son discov-
ered climbing when she took
him to a rock-climbing facil-
ity to burn off some of his
energy. He not only enjoyed
climbing, but also the chal-
lenge.
“It was a challenge for
him,” Constance Lightner
said. “The first day he went to
the gym ever he left in tears.
They put him on something
that he couldn’t do.”

A bill passed by Student
Congress last Tuesday that
would change student body
elections to an instant runoff
format is headed to outgo-
ing Student Body President
Christy Lambden’s desk.
The bill would change vot-
ing from a general election and
runoff system to instant runoff
voting, where voters determine
the winner by ranking each
of the candidates in order of
preference. That would elimi-
nate any campaigning after the
original vote.
Lambden will decide by
Tuesday whether or not to
veto the bill, said Student
Body Vice President Jacob
Morse. Lambden vetoed a
similar measure in August.
Members of Student
Congress who favored the bill
referenced a reduction in voter
and candidate fatigue as a rea-
son for the switch, saying that
N.C. State University and Duke
University have found the
method to be more efficient.
However, N.C. State Student
Senate President Kelsey Mills
said their student senate will
vote Wednesday on a bill to get
rid of the instant runoff system.
She said members of student
government have voiced con-
cerns about whether instant
runoffs are indicative of what
students really want.
Mills said a student senator
also did research on selection
bias and presented it to student
government, which brought up
concerns that voters commonly
vote for the candidate at the
top of the list and only know
about a single candidate.
A new SBP election
format will be passed
to Lambden.
More than 100 people
competed in the rock
climbing competition.
At Duke, Attorney General
Syed Adil said arbitrary vot-
ing is a concern when there
is a long list of candidates
running for a single position,
but that that mostly applies to
freshman elections.
For bigger positions which
usually only have two or three
choices, instant runoff works
very well, Adil said.
He said benefits to instant
runoff voting include a short
campaigning period and less
money spent by candidates.
Student Congress Finance
Chairwoman Brittany Best
said she does not think
because Duke and N.C. State
do things a certain way that
UNC should follow suit.
Best also had concerns
about selection bias. She said
she believes the system cur-
rently in place — while not
perfect — is fairer.
Morse does not believe
switching to instant runoff is
necessary, because Lambden
and Student Congress have
already worked to shorten the
campaign period. Morse also
said by not having instant run-
off, he thinks candidates are
able to appeal to a broader base
and dive into policy more.

“I do know earlier

Jacob Morse,
student body vice president
“I do know earlier this year
(Lambden) vetoed a very sim-
ilar bill, so if he were to con-
sider signing it, there’d have
to be some differences (from
the last bill),” Morse said.
Sophomore Katie Daniel
is in favor of keeping the cur-
rent system, and said it gives
students more opportunities
to learn about the candidates
and their platforms.
“Drawing from my past
experience with the Andrew
Powell and Emilio (Vicente)
runoff, I feel like when it came
down to the runoff that’s when
I started to pay more attention
to what the two candidates
were actually saying,” she said.
“I really didn’t know any-
thing about the other candi-
dates, so I would’ve felt bad
ranking them lower.”

The magazine’s new
edition will be
released on April 12.
“It’s only through conversation that we are
able to break down these barriers…”
Nikil Umesh,
editor of Talking Sidewalks
going through,” he said.
“We’re a lot more similar
than we are different.”
Gough has been working
on getting the magazine’s
information out to a wider
audience by working with the
UNC Service and Leadership
living-learning community
and developing the magazine’s
online presence through its
Facebook page and website.
The magazine also has
a partnership with UNC
anthropology professor
Charles Price, one of whose
courses is collaborating with
Community Outreach and
Talking Sidewalks to revital-
ize the publication with a
release party.
The upcoming April issue
will be dedicated to Gary
Harwell, one of the maga-
zine’s former contributors.
A St. Louis native, Harwell
moved to Chapel Hill while
recovering from alcoholism.
He was one of the first writ-
ers for the magazine and
helped bring other homeless
people in Chapel Hill into the
project. He passed away from
cancer last summer.
“It is quite a hardship to
come over, and he was such a
light for a lot of people within
the community, especially in
the shelter,” Umesh said.
Singh said that Harwell was
great for Talking Sidewalks
because his history with the
organization helped him take
pride in his work, a feeling the
magazine’s staff hopes future
writers can share.
“We would really like to
see the guys feel and claim
ownership over this project
and recognize the importance
and the integral part that they
play in these interactions and
relationships that we have,”
she said.

Voting to be moved o≠ campus at ASU
By Benji Schwartz
Staff Writer
Last week the State
Board of Elections unani-
mously voted to reaffirm
the move of an early voting
site off of Appalachian State
University’s campus.
The Watauga County Board
of Elections previously voted
on five early voting sites, none
of which were located on cam-
pus — raising concerns about
voter access for the May 6 pri-
mary elections.
Kathleen Campbell, the lone
Democrat of the three mem-
bers of the Watauga County
Board of Elections, called the
measure an act of voter sup-
pression and attributed the act
to the brothers Stacy Eggers
IV, Watauga’s county attorney,
and Luke Eggers, a Board of
Elections member.
“Since they have been in
office with me, they have been
endlessly playing games and
saying this is all for the good
of the people — even though
when they finally met and
allowed the people to come to
a hearing, almost all the peo-
ple who came ... wanted a site
at the ASU student union,”
Campbell said.
Stacy Eggers IV has often
written resolutions that Luke
Eggers introduces to the
board, which Campbell said
are written in complex legal
jargon.
Joshua Lawson, a spokes-
THE VOTING DEBATE
The relocation of one of
Watauga County’s early vot-
ing sites of ASU’s campus is
at the center of controversy:

September 2013: The
Watauga County Board of
Elections voted to move
the Applachian State early
voting site from the student
union to Legends, a night-
club on the edge of campus,
for the municipal elections.

October 2013: Three
Watauga County residents
filed a formal complaint
against the two Republican
members, Luke Eggers and
Bill Aceto, of the county’s
Board of Elections.
Last week, Watauga
County’s early voting
sites were upheld.
man for the State Board of
Elections, said the decision to
reaffirm the move was reached
after hearing arguments from
the parties for more than an
hour and reviewing numerous
documents, maps and other
exhibits.
“(The board) looks for-
ward to broad participation
by students and members of
the community throughout
Watauga,” he said in an email.
Dylan Russell, ASU stu-
dent body president, criti-
cized the move.
“I personally believe that
any revision to voting policies
and procedures should only
serve to make voting more
accessible,” Russell said. “The
Watauga County local Board
of Elections’ decision does not
do that. I find that decision to
be deeply troubling because
voting is a basic, fundamental
and civic right, and we should
be encouraging that as much
as possible.”
There will be an early vot-
ing site located at the Watauga
County Administration
Building, located near the
Appalachian State campus,
but Campbell said the walk to
and from the voting site will
be time consuming and would
potentially decrease voter
turnout for both students and
university employees.
“I would say this is politi-
cally motivated,” Campbell
said. “If you just look at the
evidence the same thing is
happening across the state.
Nowhere in the state have
(Republicans) allowed vot-
ing on the campus — they’ve
taken it away. The same is
true for a lot of other states.”
Earlier this month the
Orange County Board of
Elections decided to move the
early voting site at UNC-CH
from Rams Head Dining Hall
off campus to North Carolina
Hillel.
While Russell said vot-
ing will be harder for ASU
students without the student
union site, student voices will
still be heard.
“We plan, come Election
Day, that our student voice
will be heard on campus
because the fact of the matter
is Appalachian State students
are caring, thoughtful mem-
bers of society, and ultimately,
they want to vote,” Russell
said.
“It’ ll just be a little harder,
but we’ ll get their voice out.”

solid outing
By Brendan Marks
Staff Writer
RALEIGH — Every year
since 2007, the North Carolina
rowing team has competed
against Georgetown for the
Class of 2006 Cup. And every
year since 2007, Georgetown
has walked away victorious.
The regatta, held this year at
Lake Wheeler, was composed
of four races — the varsity
fours, varsity eights and second
and third varsity eights. While
UNC fell short again, Saturday
marked its best-ever perfor-
mance in the rivalry.
Despite losing all four races,
UNC held its own. In fact, the
varsity eights finished just 1.5
seconds behind its longtime
foes — 7:09.5 to 7:11.0.
“I know last year in the
V8’s we raced and we were
about eight seconds back …
so to gain seven seconds in a
year is huge,” said senior cox-
swain Allie Davis. “In rowing,
that’s a lot of boat lengths.”
In the varsity eights, UNC
focused on maintaining its
split — the third 500 meters
of the race — after fading
during the split in last week-
end’s loss to Old Dominion.
“That’s where you kind of
start to black out, your lungs
are on fire, your legs hurt, and
there’s nothing more you want
to do than stop,” said senior
Maria Santoyo. “But you know
that the harder you go, the
faster you get to the finish line,
and we did a good job of that.”
Although UNC’s fastest
boat was still unable to pull
out a win, the Tar Heels set an
example that the rest of the
team hopes to follow for the
remainder of the season.
In the second varsity eights,
UNC finished only seconds
behind Georgetown again, this
time falling 7:22.8 to 7:25.4.
To end the regatta, the novice
eights lost 7:43.1 and 8:15.9.
In front of a home crowd for
the only time this season, UNC
was still unable to come out
ahead. Even in defeat, though,
both players and coaches for
North Carolina spoke proudly
about not only Saturday’s per-
formance, but also what results
like it mean for the program.
“These schools — we’ve
never been competitive with
them before, so it’s a whole
new ball game,” Santoyo said.
Coach Sarah Haney agreed.
“This is probably the best
team we’ve had in a really
long time … They came in this
year knowing that nobody
was going to tell them they
were slow — they just weren’t
going to believe it,” Haney
said. “Their teamwork, their
attitude, their commitment
and just absolute belief (in)
winning is huge.”

UNC relying on Zengel’s bat
escaped the series without
committing an error, but that
could not be said about his
fellow infielders, who com-
mitted five of the eight errors
this weekend.
The junior couldn’t point
to any one problem area for
the infield, which included as
many as three freshmen dur-
ing stretches this weekend,
but he said the group could
improve with more game
experience.
“It’s nothing really we need
to work on,” Russell said. “It’s
all stuff we’re capable of
doing, so it’s less working on
it, and more actually doing
it. We’ ll get better.”
sports@dailytarheel.com
and plunking three more
before being pulled after a
third of an inning.
“With young players, you
don’t know,” coach Mike Fox
said of Gallen, who he called
the pitching staff ’s best strike
thrower.
“Sometimes it’s a mixed
bag, but that was very shock-
ing that he started the game
that way.”
UNC escaped the first
inning, trailing just 2-0, and
took a 3-2 lead in the fifth
inning on a Russell RBI sin-
gle, but another disastrous
frame left the Tar Heels
reeling.
Duke’s Chris Marconcini
led off the fifth and reached
base when UNC second base-
man Wood Myers couldn’t
cleanly field a grounder to
his left.
Marconcini would later
score, and two more Duke
runs would come in — on a
bunt single and a wild pitch
— to give Duke a two-run
lead.
“When we get a lead, we
come out and start an inning
with an error and a walk,” Fox
said.
“In this league, if you do
that you’re setting yourself up
for a difficult inning.”
UNC’s series was chock full
of difficult innings.
After trailing 6-1 Saturday,
Duke put together a big fifth
inning, tying the game at six,
when catcher Korey Dunbar
attempted to catch a runner
stealing, but made a poor
throw, scoring a runner from
third.
Duke won the game, 9-8,
on Ryan Deitrich’s walk-off
single in the 12th, which was
facilitated by a botched pick-
off attempt by UNC pitcher
Spencer Trayner that sent the
game-winning run to third
base.
“If we can find a way to
lose, we seem to be finding
it right now,” Fox said after
Saturday’s 9-8 loss.
The Tar Heels held
leads in all three losses
but allowed Duke to climb
back into games with walks,
errors and hit batsmen.
UNC pitchers allowed nine
walks and hit three batters
Sunday.

izer came when Sankey lobbed
a pass from behind the cage to
Jimmy Bitter, who executed
the final shot.
Sankey struck three minutes
later on an unassisted rocket
that solidified UNC’s lead, but
achieving his 13th career hat
trick was not enough to satiate
Sankey’s hunger. The momen-
tum that the attackman gener-
ated was infectious, as Steve
Pontrello and R.G. Keenan
tallied two more goals.
“We just knew that we were
better than what we were
playing in the first half, and
we all believed in each other,”
said faceoff specialist Keenan.
“The offense stepped up to
play one hell of a game.”
Meanwhile, the UNC
defense held Johns Hopkins
to a nearly 22-minute scoring
drought.
Sankey’s offensive grit truly
shone in his final two goals in
the fourth period. Under pres-
sure from the timer, he collect-
ed a pass from Pat Foster and
heaved it into the net before his
cleats returned to grass.
“I think I heard someone
say there’s 10 seconds left, so
it was kind of an all-or-noth-
ing shot,” Sankey said.
Minutes later, he careened
around the net and drove in a
leaping shot before multiple
defenders collapsed upon him.
That seemingly backbreak-
ing maneuver, scored from
the narrowest of vantage
points, filled out Sankey’s
career high of five goals.
“I always practice
those shots,” Sankey said.
“Sometimes it works out and
sometimes it doesn’t, but today
they were going in. There’s
definitely some luck in it.”

Senior Tom Zengel has received more playing time for UNC this
season, including at first base. He’s batting .340 this year.
By Michael Lananna
Sports Editor
DURHAM — He’s seen
them come and go — the Colin
Morans, Levi Michaels and
Kent Emanuels — from Chapel
Hill to the major leagues.
He’s been to Omaha, Neb.
Twice. He’s missed out on
Omaha, too. He’s been with
the North Carolina baseball
team for four years — through
exhilirating College World
Series runs and heartbreakers.
But the Tar Heels have
never needed Tom Zengel
more than they’ve needed
him this year.
UNC (15-12, 5-7 ACC) is
approaching dangerous ter-
ritory. The Tar Heels have
lost six consecutive games —
including their first weekend
sweep against Duke since
1994. And in an offense that
has sputtered at times like
a faulty engine, Zengel has
served as one of its few spark-
plugs, moving into the middle
of the UNC order.
“His bat has really been
probably the only consistent
bat throughout the year,” said
junior shortstop Michael
Russell. “And now he’s been
in the lineup every day, so he’s
really been carrying us offen-
sively. A lot of big hits.”
It hasn’t always been that
way. Zengel’s bat has often
been overshadowed by the
bigger names and prospects
around him. Last season, as a
junior, Zengel had just 14 at-
bats in a lineup that featured
four future MLB draft picks.
But this season, in 47 at-
bats already, Zengel is hitting
.340, slugging .638 with 12
RBIs and is batting consistent-
ly in the middle third of UNC’s
lineup, while playing primarily
as a DH or at first base.
In Saturday’s teeter-totter,
12-inning 9-8 loss to Duke,
Zengel gave UNC reason to
hope — blasting a solo home
run immediately following
Russell to give UNC an 8-6
lead in the seventh inning.
On Sunday, Zengel got the
Tar Heels on the board first,
drilling an RBI double into the
right-center field gap. It was
the first hit for UNC in the
game — and the first against
hard-throwing Duke righty
Michael Matuella this season.
But Zengel didn’t revel in
his accomplishments after
the series — after all, his team
was just swept.
“I just try to do whatever
I can on a daily basis to help
this team win,” he said. “So
hopefully, starting this week,
with our midweek games
we’ ll start to play a little bit
better and get back on the
winning side.”
In past seasons, there
would be little Zengel could
do to help UNC in a situa-
tion like that — he could only
wait for an opportunituy to
pinch-hit. This season, he has
a chance.
“He does everything right,”
Russell said. “ I think he
shows persistence. He hasn’t
played as much as he’s prob-
ably wanted to play the last
four years, but every day he
comes to the practice with the
same attitude, and now he’s
getting his chance.
“And he’s crushing the ball.”

North Carolina junior shortstop Michael Russell makes a throw to
first during UNC’s loss to Duke Saturday. UNC has lost six straight.
By Wesley Lima
Staff Writer
The North Carolina softball team
tried everything it could to bunt,
steal, nickel and dime the overpow-
ering Florida State Seminoles in an
attempt to sneak in a victory against
the 11th best team in the country.
However, UNC’s small-ball strategy
couldn’t overcome FSU’s big ball, as
the Seminoles homered their way to
two consecutive victories in a double-
header Sunday afternoon, winning
game one 6-0 and game two 5-3.
“It was disappointing overall,”
UNC coach Donna Papa said.
The Tar Heels and Seminoles came
into this weekend’s clash tied for first
atop the ACC standings at 9-2 each,
but it would be Florida State who
would come out alone at the top after
sweeping the Tar Heels 2-0.
“Florida State is a good team hav-
ing a great year, but I felt very good
about our chances today overall, but
the biggest difference was that we
didn’t hit the ball,” Papa said.
While the small-ball strategy clear-
ly wasn’t enough to lead UNC to a vic-
tory, senior Amy Nece — a rare bright
spot in an otherwise lackluster offen-
sive outing by going 3-for-4 in game
two — said the idea was to “scratch
and claw” at the tough Seminoles.
“We definitely had a plan at the
plate, and we stuck with it through-
out both games,” Nece said. “I think
our plan was working, we just need-
ed to do a better job of execution.”
UNC ace Lori Spingola pitched
five innings in game one before
being relieved by freshman Kendra
Lynch for the final two innings.
Lynch continued for the first four
innings of game two as well before
being replaced by freshman Lauren
Batten,who finished out the game.
None, however, could quiet the
powerful FSU bats, as the Seminoles
launched five home runs in the two
games combined, accounting for five
of their six runs in the first game and
four of their five runs in the second.
“We knew going into this game that
it was going to be tough for each bat-
ter, ” Lynch said. “I had to stay calm
and not let the hype of their record or
ranking affect me.”
Florida State’s pitching had a
bit more success silencing the Tar
Heels, able to shut them out in 12 of
the 14 innings of play. Junior Lacey
Waldrop pitched the complete-
game shutout in game one, allowing
just three hits in 25 batters faced.
Freshman Jessica Burroughs started
game two strong before giving up
two walks and two hits in the fourth
that led to the only two UNC runs
of the day before Waldrop was put
back in to close it up.
UNC had a chance to win it in
the bottom of the seventh with bases
loaded and one out, down three, but
only managed to bring one runner
home as Waldrop quickly defused the
Tar Heels lone real threat of the day.
“We told our girls it could be the
seventh inning by the time we get
around on a pitcher or are ready to
do some damage and I thought we
put ourselves in a great position, all
it would’ve taken was one hit, and it
could’ve made a difference,” Papa said.
“I felt good that we finished that way.”

Two 800-meter races, two kicks
and two first-place finishes.
The North Carolina track and
field team competed in the Raleigh
Relays at N.C. State this weekend,
where sophomore Lizzy Whelan and
freshman Cory Nicholls won the
men’s and women’s 800-meter races
Saturday, posting nationally ranked
times in the process.
Whelan’s time of 2:06.76 is the
fourth fastest collegiate 800-meter
time this outdoor season, while
Nicholls’ time of 1:49.80 is tied for
ninth in the nation.
“They’re very competitive times,
especially this early in the season,”
said track and field coach Harlis
Meaders. “Lizzy has proven herself
in cross country and indoor track,
and it was a breakthrough perfor-
mance for Cory Nicholls.”
Whelan kicked in the last 200
meters after being in fifth for most
of the race. Nicholls moved from last
to first place in the final 300 meters.
“My goal at that point was to
move in the third 200, because that’s
usually the point in the 800 where
people tend to relax,” Nicholls said.
Both said they are happy with
their performances, but recognize
it’s early in the season.
“It’s just about continuing in that
momentum and dropping that time
so that I stay up there,” Whelan said.
The team faced rainy weather
and high winds for most of the two-
day meet, but Meaders said he was
happy with the team’s overall perfor-
mance.
Senior Tristine Johnson placed sec-
ond in the women’s triple jump. In the
men’s shot put, redshirt senior Chris
DiLorenzo placed fourth. Sophomore
Austin Vegas placed fifth in men’s
pole vault, while junior Philip Morris
placed sixth in men’s high jump.
“Our biggest place for improve-
ment is getting the other kids
performing at the level that we’re
capable of doing,” Meaders said.
The team also competed in the
Texas Relays last week, and Meaders
said they performed well against
tough competition at both meets.
“The Texas Relays are one of the
biggest in the country,” he said. “We
had a chance to compete against
some of the best.”
Five UNC athletes competed
in Texas. Sophomore Avana Story
threw her best hammer throw as a
collegiate athlete, while junior Xenia
Rahn placed fourth in the women’s
heptathlon and finished just 55
points shy of the school record.
Team members will compete
in three meets next weekend —
the Florida Relays, the Cardinal
Invitational and at the Vert Klasse
Track at High Point University.
“Next week will be a good
test for us at the Florida Relays,”
Meaders said. “Now that the ACC
Championships is just a couple
weeks away, we need to focus on get-
ting them competing at a conference
level.”

Joey Sankey is never satisfied
with scoring the easy goal.
He prefers to dance behind the
cage before slinging chaotic, diving
shots into mere inches of space.
No angle is too small or defender
too formidable to hinder the inno-
vation and dynamism of the North
Carolina men’s lacrosse team’s
5-foot-5 leading scorer.
It was this sense of defying the
impossible that propelled UNC to
a 13-9 comeback win against Johns
Hopkins on Saturday, along with
Sankey’s five-goal contribution.
“(Sankey) knows his game and
what he’s good at,” coach Joe Breschi
said. “He creates off the ball, has
the ability to score in tight spaces
and low angles and he takes advan-
tage of the defense. He’s creative.”
As the first 30 minutes ticked
away, it quickly appeared that the Tar
Heels were in danger of relinquish-
ing their two-game winning streak.
Johns Hopkins dominated statis-
tically across the board in the first
half, most importantly at the faceoff
X, where the Blue Jays scooped
up 13 of the 14 faceoff opportuni-
ties. In addition, UNC was outshot
22-13 and out contested in ground
balls by a margin of 19-8.
After the conclusion of the sec-
ond period, the Tar Heels jogged off
the field lucky to be clinging on to a
7-5 deficit.
Frustrated by the unfamiliarity of
a halftime shortfall — the Tar Heels’
first of the season — UNC recognized
it would need a full-throttle approach
to overcome Johns Hopkins.
“We were confident going into
the second half that our defense
was going to pick up,” Sankey said.
“We were stressing not to freak out,
and we knew we had it under con-
trol. I think we showed really good
composure after the rough start.”
For an attackman of such small
stature, Sankey came up with big
plays for the Tar Heels in the third
and fourth periods. A goal from
Ryan Creighton helped to chip away
at the Blue Jays’ lead, and the equal-

BASEBALL: DUKE WINS SERIES, 3-0
Duke swept the

DURHAM — Wild pitches. Errant throws.
Routine plays made to look impossible.
No. 19 North Carolina (15-12, 5-7 ACC)
made those sorts of plays in bunches in its
weekend series at unranked Duke (17-12,
7-5), which swept the Tar Heels for the first
time since 1994. UNC last lost a series to
Duke in 2010.
UNC made eight errors in the three-game
series, and the Tar Heels’ sloppiness in the
field played a prominent role in each of its
three losses, which extended the team’s sea-
son-long losing streak to six.
After committing 56 errors in 60 games in
2013, the Tar Heels have committed 40 in 27
games this season.
“We don’t play perfect baseball right now,”
shortstop Michael Russell said.
“We’ ll make a big error with a guy on
third, or with nobody out or with one out.
We’re not doing the fundamental, routine
stuff that we really need to do.”

mal first inning Sunday, walking two batters
