Gillman relinquishes coaching duties
Sports hdilor
Alter two years of endless rumor and
speculation Larry Cillrnan finally resigned his duties
as head basketball coach at East Carolina
ednesdaj afternoon.
In a statement released b) athletic department,
Gillman said the university's failure to issue him a
long-term contract to continue the development of
basketball program was the reason for
submitting his resignation.
Gillman's resignation is effective immediately and
h tor a successor will begin immediately.
I was very eager to get a head coaching job,
but 1 didn't analyze the situation lin at East
l�na very Cillrnan said. "I was only
-ear- old when 1 took the job and it was
ainly a great coaching opportunity for me.
But the program here needs a longer
mitment from the university along with more
mom 5 and better facilities he continued. "I'm not
happy with the way things have turned out. but I'm
relieved right now
Cillrnan, a former assistant coach at San
"ra: came to Easl Carolina in 1977 after Dave
signed, fter boasting the Pirates would hi
or 18 games during Gillman's first
Carolina finished with a disappointing
9-17 record.
At the end of the season, the Athletic Council
voted unanimously to dismiss Gillman, but former
East Carolina Chancellor Leo Jenkins overruled the
decision and allowed him at least one more year on
his contract.
Although the Pirates defeated highly regarded
schools such as South Carolina, Iona, and Atlantic
Coast Conference member Georgia Tech this season,
East Carolina still finished with a 12-15 record.
Reports of player dissension were widespread
among athletic department circles all season
long. Forward Herb Gray left I he team at
mid-semester and guard Walter Moseley withdrew
from school last week. Freshman center Al Tyson
also quit the squd after last week's game against
Old Dominion and did not make the trip with the
team to Notre Dame Monday.
A total of nine players have transferred or quit
the squad since Gillman became head coach and
two assistants also resigned during that period.
'I never pouted after any losses we had, and I
did what I said I was going to do Gillman
explained. "I got the top players to come here and
1 got a top notch schedule for the program which
was the first time that ever happened
The final year of Gillman's three-year contract is
expected to be paid by the university. He earns an
estimated $20,000 per year.
Gillman said he has no immeaiate plans, but will
probably return to the New York or Washington,
D.C. area. 'Rjght now, I'm just tired of coaching
he added. "It's just been too many bus trips and
plane rides and too much time away from home.
Everyone knows I'm a salesman and that's probably
what I wdl get into when I leave.
"The biggest thrill I got during my coaching
career at East Carolina was beating Iona up there
in New York. Since I grew up right near there, it
was a really satisfying win for me
Although ECU Athletic Director Bill Cain said
the search for a new coach would begin
immediately, it was reported Pirate assistant coach
lerry Kunze was the leading candidate for the
Other names mentioned were Wake Forest
assistant coach David Odom, former ECU assitant
Butch Estes, now an assistant at Rice University
and Dick Grubar, a former star at North Carolina
and assistant at the University of Florida.
Gillman, a 30-year-old native of Mt. Vernon,
N.Y finished at East Carolina with a 21-32 overall
record. He also served as an assistant coach at
Minnesota, Houston, and West Chester Communitv

Jeff Williams, SGA
elections chairperson,
has announced the
election dates and
The filing for can-
didancy for any SGA
office will be held from
Feb. 21 until March 13.
Williams stressed the
importance of the
candidate meeting. This
mandatory meeting will
be held on March 13 at
7 p.m. This session will
meet in room 221 in
Mendenhall Student
During March 14
through March 27, all
candidates will be
allowed to campaign.
Rules for campaigning
will be discussed at the
candidate meeting.
The SGA elections
will be held on March
28 and 29 according to
Williams. In the past,
the elections were only
held on one day. This
year, Williams has
scheduled the elections
for two days hoping to
increase the voter
participation on campus.
Williams said that in
past years, the voter
attendance has been
poor. He said that
during last year's
elections, only 2,200
students voted. Out of
an enrollment of about
13,000, this percentage
in the
is lower than
election held
United States.
Williams said that
usually between 2,000
and 2,700 students show
up to vote and they
hope by having
elections lasting
days, this change
accomodate more
Williams said that
the election precincts
have previously been
set up in dorms causing
on-campus students to
be the primary partici-
pants in the voting.
This year, the
elections committee
hopes to extend the
precincts into the
classroom buildings.
Williams hopes that this
will be more convenient
for the off-campus stu-
dents. Williams feels
this move is neeearv
because of the growing
number of student- who
are moving off campus.

Dr. Raymond Bus-

and Natural Resources
students are offering a
unique service. His
class will design and
build a nature trail for
almost any local agency
which will contact them.
"Our objective is to
locate agencies who
would like to have
nature trails and inter-
petive facilities (identify
geological formations,
plants, and wildlife)
constructed said Dr.
Busbee. "This would
enable our students to
get the necessary
training in building a
trail from the ground
Right now the class
is involved in building a
nature trail at the
Walter B. Jones Alco-
holic Rehabilitation Ce-
nter here in Greenville.
The trail will be the
only one of its kind in
P�tt County. It will be
for the use of the
patients at the ARC.
The trail, when com-
pleted, will be about
four tenths of a mile
long, and will have a
picnic area, two small
bridges, a boardwalk
across a marsh area, a
gateway, and will have
signs identifying differ-
ent plants and trees
along the trail.
"The students will
also assist with the
design and construction
of a physical fitness
trail for the clients at
the center according
to a news release.
Busbee felt that the
trails will be a
"tremendous asset"
the ARC.
Building the trails is
part of the curriculum
of the course. Busbee's
classes have also built
trails at the Cliffs of
the Nuese State Park,
and at the Onslow
County Parks and
Recreation facility. Bus-
bee feels the course will
be beneficial, because it
will increase the num-
ber of trails in an area
where nature trails are
"There are only
about one and a half
inches of trail per
citizen in North Caro-
lina" according to
Busbee, who is the
Chairman of the North
Carolina Trails Commi-
Most recently Bus-
bee has been promoting
the establishment of a
Mountain-to-Sea trail
which would extend
from the Appalachian
trail in the Smoky
Mountains National Park
to the Outer Banks.
"The trail would wind
through some of the
states most scenic
areas, would link with
several state parks, and
might eventually be
expanded to accomodate
a wide variety ot
outdoor activities inclu-
ding hiking, bicycling,
canoeing and the use of
otl-the-road vehicles
according to a news
The N.C Trails
Committee has desig-
nated the 20-mile wide
planning corridor which
will contain the main

Cliff Moore, vice
chancellor for business
affairs, said in a recent
interview that renovation
on Jarvis Dorm will
begin soon and should
be completed by Fall
About a month ago
the ceiling in Jarvis
caved in and all
residents had to be
moved out and spread
around in other dorms.
Moore said that in
his opinion the cave-in
was the result of work
done some years ago.
Moore explained that
some rewiring was done
years ago and concrete
was used to patch over
the new wiring. The
concrete was approx-
imately two inches thick
and was being held up
only by some small
nails in the ceiling.
According to Moore,
Jarvis, Cotten and
Fleming will all be

Jarvis will be renovated
this year, Cotten next
year and finally Fleming
the following year.
Moore said that the
anticipated cost of
renovation is $500,000
for each of the three
According to Moore,
bids for the renovation
of Cotten and Fleming
will be taken at the end
of Fall semester for the
next two years and the
renovations will take
place in the spring.
As a result of these
renovations it will be
necessary to move the
residents of whichever
dorm is going to be
renovated to other
dorms at the end of
Fall semester, said
Moore explained that
it would be impossible
to renovate any dorm
during Fall semester
because enrollment is
higher in the Fall than
in the Spring and the
university could not
afford to close a dorm
during the peak enroll-
ment period.
Moore said that the
work on Jarvis would
begin sometime in the
near future.
"We've got to go
through some paper
work with the general
administration in Chapel
Hill first said Moore.
Moore said that bids
have not been taken yet
for the work.
"We're going to get
some people to go in

crete before we take
any bids said Moore.

timately all the ceilings
in Jarvis, Cotten and

placed and the buildings
will be completely re-
Moore added that
even though the dorms

going to meet with the

the problems of dorm

also been some discuss-
ion by the UNC Board
of Governors about this
problem said Moore.
The university plans
to initiate a program of
upgrading all dorms on
campus over the next
several years, according
to Moore.
Moore said that
there are immediate
plans to equip all dorms
with smoke detectors
and fire alarms.
At the present time
10 dorms are in need of
fire alarms and smoke
detectors, while five are
only in need of smoke
Moore estimates the
cost of equipping these
dorms with fire preven-

roughly one million

tian blinds in all dorm

So long, Gillman
ECU Head Basketball Coach Larry
Gillman finally resigned yesterday,
two-thirds of the way through his
hree-year contract. Our only regret
is that he didn't do it sooner.
During the two years he coached
here, he developed a reputation as a
braggart whose outspoken boasts and
self-aggrandizement continually emba-
rressed Pirate fans. Sometime last
ar, he spoke to an ECU journalism
class and said "before I came here,
people didn't know ECU had a

;ryone knows we have a program

a position with the NBA team the

a year (about $12,000 more than'his
salary at ECU). The Bulls' reply
was, basically, "Larry who?"
"Everyone knows I'm a sales- '

statement, and that is perhaps the
most honest assessment of the man
to date. He certainly packaged and
sold himself to ECU, with the catchy
slogan of "we will win 17 or 18

Rushen has 'immense ability as a composer9
Patrice is 4a combination of funk and soft jazz'
PATRICE RUSHEN'S NEW album "Patrice is a mix of mo-town, disco and jazz
Trends Editor
Patrice Rushen's new album, Patrice, is a
combination of funk and soft jazz which is very
appealing. The young Miss Rushen has a breathy
soprano voice which sounds as good in an up-beat
jazz number as well as in a softer, slower song.
Her voice reminds one of Maria Muldare.
Her ability as composer equals at least and
perhaps surpasses her ability as singer. Her pop
flavored jazz is refreshingly nice to hear. She
composed nearly all the songs on the album.
The first song on the album, "Music of the
Earth is a funky number with a jazzy beat a la
Chick Corea. The arrangement of this song is
replete with staccato lead guitar, stepping bass,
rather latino percussion and a nice, cool synthesizer.
The background vocals remind one of those used by
Herbie Mann occasionally.
"When I Found You" is the type of song that
could easily have been recorded by Barbra
Streisand. But unfortunately, Patrice Rushen's voice
lacks the dynamic quality which makes Streisand
such a powerful singer, and "When 1 Found You"
is a pleasant little song when it could have been a
strong, beautiful one. Even so, the laid-back over-all
sound of the song, enhanced by some nice sax work
by Larry Williams, makes for an enjoyable cut.
The songs on Patrice are alternately fast and
slow. Following the easy-going "When I Found
ou" comes "Changes In Your Life" a song with
compelling rhythmic intensity. The riffing electric
guitar and Patrice's vipping and yelling make this
the most rock-like song on the album even though
the beat is still jazzy. Whatever genre one might
place it in, it is a fun song, and that is enough.
"Wishful Thinking as its name might imply, is
a dreamy sort of song in a minor key. There is a
softly intriguing jazz rhythm underneath the lilting,
flowing melody deliciously sung by Miss Rushen.
This skillfully paced album begins its second side
with "Hang It Up A song with a full-produced
sound, having lots of brass, electric guitar, vocals
and electric organ. The best part of the song is a
piano solo by Rushen herself; it was very good jazz
piano and jazz feeling.
"Cha-Cha" is just that, a thoroughly danceable
to cha-cha rhythm plus lovely singing and melodic-
line by Patrice. They would play it at a chic disco
in Monacco.
"It's just a natural thing" would be boring
except that one can't help but to somehow move to
its beat. It is more jazz than disco but more disco
than jazz.
"Didn't You Know?" is another Barbra
Streisand-like song: excellently produced, compel-
ling melody, sweet feminity. Miss Rushen is a
composer who can mix the best of mo-town, disco
and jazz, with a little bit of Dionne Warwick thrown
The nearly athletic quality of the faster songs on
this album is felt in the lyrics to it. The name of
the song is "Play and the lyrics alternate with
really fun background scat-singing. The are
indicative of the feeling of all the fast songs on the

but they count it as a special pleasure to perform
in North Carolina. The company will appear under
the auspices of the Student Union Theatre Arts
Committee on March 13 at 1 p.m. and March 14
at 8 p.m. in Wright Auditorium at East Carolina.
Different repertoires will be used for the two

Theatre. It is the story of love and change in an
atmosphere of indifference and brutalitv. The work
was made possible by a grant irom the National
Endowment for the Arts. The choreography is by
Nobert Vesak and the music is by Ann Mortifree.
Works choreographed by George Balanchine and
Alvin Ailey are also included in the company
repertoire. Both men are highly selective in regard
to who performs their works and give chosen
companies special training before the pieces are
performed. The Dance Theatre is especially proud to
have the priviledge of dancing these works.
Dance Magazine, the most important trade
magazine tor the world of dance, consistently
praises the North Carolina Dance Theatre for its
style, technique, and selection of pieces. The
publication constantly reiterates how fortunate dance
lovers are that the company became a touring
company rather than remaining a regional group.
Several individual dancers are also being sought for
residencies with other companies. Various other
trade publications praise the company s enlightened
management for insuring that the . ,��v
maintains a varied repertoire.

Players relieved with Gillman's resignation
Sports Editor
The news that East Carolina basketball coach
Larry billman had resigned came shortly after noon
Wednesday and for most of the Pirate players the
announcement came as no surprise.
Despite an endless number of promises Gillman
would bring a winning and exciting program to East
Carolina, the fast talking New York native posted
back-to-back losing records and submitted his
resignation Wednesday morning to athletic director
bill Cain.
Several players reported they were all but fed up
vyth Gillman's antics both on and off the court by
the end of the year and three members of the team
quit during the season.
o, it really doesn't come as any surprise to
me, torward Herb Krusen said while' eating lunch

Tyson quits team,
plans to transfer
Sports Editor
East Carolina center Al Tvson has quit the
Pirate basketball team and told FOUNTAINHEAD
Tuesday he has no plans to return to school next
Thon, a freshman from nearbv Winterville, said
he will finish the semester atECUjand will then
transfer to either St. John's or Lamar University in
Texas next fall.
"I'm finished here and I don't care who talks to
me, I'm not staying another year Tyson said.
"I'm going to stay in school the rest of the
semester and then I'm transferring somewhere else.
St. John's and Lamar have both been in touch with
me and they told me if I wasn't happy to give
them a call and something would be worked out
Although East Carolina coach Larry Gillman
submitted his resignation Wednesday, Tyson said he
was still upset about the situation. He explained his
lack of playing time was a big factor in his decision
to quit the squad. ,
"I'm still very upset about the situation here at
East Carolina and I don't know if I will change my
mind before the end of the semester Tyson said.
"I think everybody on the team was fed up with
the program by the end of the season
After sitting on the bench for the entire first
half last week against Old Dominion, Tyson left the
bench and walked to the dressing room with five
minutes still remaining in the game. He did not
practice with the team last week and did not make
the trip to Notre Dame Monday.
"I just could not get along with Coach Gillman
Tyson explained. "I wasn't happy with the way
things went in practice or anything else he did.
Tyson who was East Carolina's top freshman
recruit this season started several games this year
and scored a career high 26 points against N.C.
State. He saw action in 22 games and averaged six
points and four rebounds a game.
East Carolina concluded its regular season
Monday night with a 89-72 loss to Notre Dame in
South Bend, Ind. The Pirates finished the year with
a 12-15 record and lost to the Soviet National team
in an exhibition contest Tuesday night in
Greensboro Coliseum.
last two years, but we played in a lot of big ones
and he got us on television several times he
continued. "Coach Gillman kept telling us he would
be back next year, but I guess he had to do that
for recruiting purposes
Despite constant reports Gillman would probably
be fired at the end of the season, guard George
Maynor said most of the team had little actual
knowledge about the situation. "We heard all kinds
of rumors about what was going on, but we just
Mack impresses crowd
didn't know what was really going to happen he
said. "Sometimes it appeared like he was under a
lot of pressure, and then at other times he really
didn't show it.
"But during the last two weeks, he seemed
more relaxed Maynor continued. "He may have
just been getting prepared for what was coming
Kyle Powers, a seldom-used reserve for the last
two years, wasn't the least bit disappointed with
Gillman's resignation and said the internal problems
in the program were totally out of hand by the end
of the season.
"I felt like he would probably be fired and not
because of his won-loss record he said. "There
were just too many internal problems.
"I'm certainly not going to miss him and I think
the program will be much better off from here on
out no matter who they get as the next head eoai-h
Although East Carolina Athletic Director Bill
Cain said a search for a new coach would begin
immediately, it was reported assistant coach Terry
Kunze may fill the vacancy.
Other reports indicated a search committee will
Irish down ECU 89-72
Assistant Sports Editor
SOUTH BEND, IndFew onlookers felt East
Carolina's Pirates stood a chance against the
second-ranked Fighting Irish of Notre Dame when
the two teams took the floor here Saturday night.
Though the Irish went on to win 89-72, most felt
thev had received more than their money's worth.
The Irish came out of the starting block like a
whirlwind, jumping out to a 28-12 lead by the 10:06
mark of the first period. Emotion played a large
part in that quick start, as Irish senior centers Bill
Laimbeer and Bruce Flowers were playing there last
home game at the Athletic and Convocation Center.
But as important a factor in the quick Irish start
was the sloppy play of East Carolina. The Pirates
were beaten in every phase of the game in the
early going by the alert Irish.
But as time wore on the Pirates seemed to
loosen up, cutting the Notre Dame lead to nine, at
45-36, by intermission.
Pirate senior guard Oliver Mack led the Pirate
attack in the first period, scoring 14 points on a
variety of soaring drives to the basket. Irish fans
were so impressed with the play of Mack, in fact,
that on several occasions he received rousing
Mack finished the matchup with a game-high 20
points, enough to make him the fourth leading
scorer in East Carolina history with a career total of
1,194 points.
A Notre Dame official said after the game that
the 6'3" All-America candidate was the most
exciting player to play against the Irish at home all
season. "Some of those moves to the basket were
breathtaking he said. He'd cross mid-court, take
two or three long steps, and he was at the basket.
It was amazing.
The Pirates began the second period just as they
had ended the first, outscoring Notre Dame 8-2 to
narrow the Irish lead to only three at 47-44.
It was at this point that the over 31,000 Irish
fans assembled at the ACC became a factor in the
game. Encouraged by a rousing fan reaction, the
Irish outscored the Pirates 24-11 in the ensuing
eight minutes to ensure victory number 22 against
only three losses.
The Notre Dame scoring burst was led by
sophomore forward Tracy Jackson, who scored eight
of those crucial 24 points.
The Pirates cut the Irish lead to as low as 11
before committing uncalled-for errors in the last
minute en route to their 89-72 loss. The Pirates
finished the season at 12-15.
'The key to this game said East Carolina
Coach Larry
Gillman, "was their offensive
"Bruce Flowers and Bill Laimbeer were very
aggressive. They gave us a lot of problems with
their size and strength
Laimbeer and Flowers, a real fan favorite here,
both concluded their home seasons on a high note.
The 6'11" Laimbeer was voted the game's most
valuable player on the basis of his 17 points and 13
"For the last three games I've tried to work on
what I consider the weak points of my game in
preparation for the NCAA tournament said
Laimbeer. I felt that my offensive output and
rebounding contributions were lacking
Flowers totaled 14 points for the game, giving
him exactly 1,000 for his career at Notre Dame. In
his fourth season with the Irish, Flowers has two
more regular season games to increase that total.
Assisting Laimbeer and Flowers in the Irish
victory were Tracy Jackson, starting in place of
injured Ail-American Kelly Tripucka, with 15 points
and Orlando Woolridge with 13 points and 13
rebounds. Guard Bill Hanzlik dished out six assists.
George Maynor followed Mack in the Pirate
scoring column, finishing with a total of 17 points
and four assists. Frank Hobson grabbed II
rebounds to lead the Pirates in that category.
"Larry has recruited some fine athletes said
Notre Dame Coach Digger Phelps. "Mack is really
a fine player.
"They have to be commended for not giving up
after our fast start he said. "But when we got
the big lead early we started making some little
mistakes which allowed them to close the gap on
Gillman said he feels the Irish have as good a
chance as anyone to win the national championship.
"The key to the NCAA tournament is going to be
on the backboards he said. "Tonight's game is
indicative of how Notre Dame can hit the boards.
And, of course, you have to remember Kelly
Tripucka didn't play tonight

Assistant Sports Editor
East Carolina Pirates
dropped a 95-76 to the1
powerful Soviet National
Team before a sparce
crowd in the Greesboro
Coliseum Tuesday night.
The exhibition game
came only one day after
the Pirates had ventur-
ed to South Bend, Ind.
to face second-ranked
Notre Dame. ,
It was evident from
the beginning that the
Pirates would have huge
problems underneath
against the Soviet, who
boast of six players
over 6'10
The Soviets jumped
to a 19-16 lead in the
first ten minutes of the
first period. But in a
four minute span the
Pirates outscored the
Russians 12-5 to cut the.
lead to five.
The two teams then
exchanged baskets
� before resting for inter-
mission with the Soviets
leading 47-42.
East Carolina cut the
lead to three at 47-44
before being outscored
23-8 in an eight minute
period by the Soviets.

during that spurt was
7'3" center Vladamir
Tka chenko, gener-
ally considered the star
of this club, played but

After the Soviet
spurt, the Pirates could
only whittle away at the
lead, narrowing it to 11
on several occasions
before bowing 95-76.
Anatoli Mishkin led
the Soviets with 19
points and 7 rebounds.
Nikolai Derugin added
18 points.
Guard George May-
nor and forward Dave
Underwood led the
Pirates with 18 and 16
points, respectively.
Frank Hobson led the
club with five rebounds.
A problem all
evening for the Pirates
was shooting over the
long arms and bodies of
the Soviets. Their 37.3
shooting percentage
from the field is cer-
tainly a spokesman for
that fact.
East Carolina coach
Larry Gillman was quite
impressed with the
Soviets. "They're a
great basketball team
he said. "This was
surely a good exper-
ience for our kids. I
think we learned a lot.
"And Tkachenko is a
real man. He could play
at any university in the
country, maybe even in
the NBA. But he wasn't
really pumped up
tonight. Wlftn he's
. fired up, he's nothing
less than awesome
Soviet coach Alek-
zander Gomelski said
that he was very
impressed with the play
of Pirate guards George
Maynor and Oliver
Mack, citing them for
their "good technique,
good dribbling, and
good shooting He also
�noted that the Pirate
backcourt duo handled
his team's press ex-
tremely well.
"When time
passes said Gomelski,
'they could be very
good and interesting
team. But must have
big player to be good
team. No big player, no
good team
Gomelski said that
his team would now
venture to Canada for a
few weeks before
returning to Russia.

their season the night
before with a 89-72 loss

ing at 12-15 for the

be named. Wake Forest assistant David Odom, Rice
assistant and former ECU coach Butch Estes were
also mentioned as possible candidates along with
Dick Grubar, a former star at North Carolina and
assistant at the University of Florida.
"I think everybody on the team would like to
see Kunze get the job Krusen said. "He's the
most knowledgeable coach we've had since I've
been here and he knows the players well. We've all
adjusted to his style of pi.iy
"If they go outside the university, the rebuilding
process will start all over again Krusen continued.
"Kunze's got the overall support of the team and
everyone has confidence in him. I think that's the
most important thing right now
Although freshman center Al Tyson said Tuesday
he will transfer to another school next year, he
indicated Gillman's resignation may change things.
"I still think I'm going to transfer he said. "I've
just been real upset about the whole situation

Revils, Tyson
ready for
NCAA tourney
Sports Editor
East Carolina wrestling coach Bill Hill had a
premonition before last weekend's Eastern Regional
"I told Butch Revils and Mendell Tyson on the
a up there that we had a 177-pounder and a
heavyweight that made it to the nationals last
year Hill said. "And I also told them it would be
great if we could do the same thing again.
Sometimes it's really funny how things work out
Although Vic Northrup and D.T. Joyner won the
177 and heavyweight titles in the regionals last year
both missed this season with injuries. Meanwhile,
Revils and Tyson have been very capable
replacements and last week earned a trip to the
NC A Championships with victories in their
respective weight classes. The tournament opens
next Thursday at Iowa State University in Aimes,
"Butch has a great chance of placing in the
nationals and Em confident he's going to come back
an all- america Hill said Tuesday before practice.
"It's a tough tournament and you can't afford a
letdown in any match, but Butch is peaking andrif
he's mentally ready I think he can place
Hill remembers the 1974 NCAA Campionships
ven well. That year the tournament was also held
al Iowa State and he placed fifth in the 177 weight
- to tarn All-America honors.
Tins year, the top eight place winners in each
weight class will become all-america's. Previously,
the top six in each weight class were designated as
all-america s,
"It's a big tournament and certainly the most
important one I've wrestled in said Revils who
currenlty owns an impressive 17-2 record. "I
wrestled well in the regionals and I'm really looking
forward to the tournament. I've just got to go out
there and wrestle each match one at a time
Revils lost in the finals of the regionals last
year, but upset top-seeded John Stroup of Sippery
Rock to win the 177 title this season.
"I didn't want that to happen again this year
and I was kind of worried about it going into the
finals he said. "But it's just a real honor' to get
the nationals and you have to go out tnere and
make the best of your opportunity. Besides, you
never know when you're going back and I'd like to
make all-america
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the season has
been Tyson, a freshman from Virginia Beach, Va.
He joined the team after football season and now
has an 8-1-1 record.
r receiving bye's in the first two rounds of
the regionals, Tyson pinned his next two opponents
to win the heavyweight championship.
"I'm really surprised Eve gotten this far in my
first year, but Coach Hill told me I could do it if I
worked hard and believed in myself Tyson said.
"1 knew it was going to be tough, but I'm sure the
tionals will be even tougher.
"Em kind of shaky about going out there he
noted. "I'll just have to try and take each match
one step at a time. I'm sure it's going to be a

Junior track star Otrs
Melvin is one of several
nationally recognized
Pirate track stars in the
East Carolina program.
As a freshman, the
6'2 160 lb. Melvin
qualified for the NCAA
National Track Champ-
ionships in the 200
meter sprint. His finish-
ing time of 20.5 ranked
him as 10th in the U.S.
and 18th in the world.
Melvin requalified
for the Nationals last
year; however, a pulled
hamstring prevented
him from competing in
the event.
The Fayetteville,
native was just as
successful during his
years at Terry Sanford
High School under the
leadership of track
coach Greg Simpson. As
a senior, he was named
athlete of the year and
MVP in the conference.
Melvin also received
all-american status and
was state champion in
the 100 and 200 yard
Pirate Track Coach,
Bill Carson, reflected
his thoughts on the
performance of Melvin,
"Otis ran very well for
us at the Nationals two
years ago. He just
missed making the
semifinal cut by a
fraction of a second.
Last year, his injury
slowed him down, but
he's gained strength
and is running some
good times
In addition to run-
ning the 200 meter
sprint, Melvin is also
competing in the 400
meter sprint and one
mile relay this year. His
best time this year in
the 400 meter is 48.9.
He hopes to better that
time during the outdoor
season which begins on
March 24
The one mile relay
team is presently
attempting to qualify for
the Nationals by break-
ing the needed time of
3:14.5, and according to
Melvin, they should be
able to do it. "We just
need to put it all
together. Since this is
the last week to qualify,
we're going to give it
our best effort
