Dogs, owners invade downtown for Dog Olympics The 19th annual Dog Olympics, hosted by the College of Veterinary Medicine, were held Saturday in Moore Square. Aaron Andersen Correspondent
Chancellor Randy Woodson looks at his Dog Olympics T-shirt with his wife, Susan Woodson and their two dogs, Mr. Beasley and Georgia, before judging the “Look-a-like” contest. The Dog Olympics has been held every year for the past 19 years by the College of Veterinary Medicine.
Keith Pickens has been a Raleigh police officer for 14 years. The past four years of that has been shared with his K-9 partner, Phantom, a four-year-old black German shepherd. “He’s with me 24/7,” Pickens said. Pickens’s and Phantom’s K-9 demonstration was just one of many events going on Saturday in Moore Square during the 19th annual Dog Olympics. Hosted by N.C. State’s College of Veterinary Medicine, the event was held to raise money for rescue organizations around North Carolina. In Pickens’s demonstration with Phantom, he showed the audience how well the dog obeys commands. Speaking in Dutch, Pickens instructed Phantom to stay by his side as he walked around the middle of the park, explaining how the orders work. “Speaking in Dutch to the dogs makes it harder for other people to try and command the dogs,” Pickens said. Other than the demonstrations given by Pickens, there were 10 organizations represented, including the

Operation Smile Club helps funds surgeries for underprivileged
Collapsed jogger in stable condition
International charity organization Operation Smile provides non-profit surgeries for cleft lip and palate.
Spencer Shell is recovering well, but doctors have not determined underlying cause of collapse.

Spencer Shell, the student who collapsed in front of Harris Field on Thursday, Sept. 2, has been moved from the Intensive Care Unit and is in stable condition. Koby Shell, Spencer’s mother, said he was transferred into a regular hospital room at Rex Hospital. “He came to his regular room yesterday,” Koby Shell said. “He’s doing awesome. He is not hooked up to anything,” Shell said. “He is walking the halls right now. He is feeling good and wanted to go to the courtyard.” According to a website set up for Shell, Shell’s recovery has been astonishing. “I ran into [the first emergency room doctor to see Spencer] in the hall. She was astonished at his progress and said when he first got to the ER she did not think he was going to make it,” Koby Shell wrote in the journal of Shell’s website. According to Spencer’s website, he suffered cardiac arrest and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. According to the National Institute of Health, ARDS is when capillaries leak too much fluid into the lungs, preventing oxygen absorption. “ARDS usually occurs in people

Operation Smile Club is raising awareness, along with funds, for children around the world with cleft lip or cleft palate. Operation Smile, an international charity, was established in 1982, has a presence in over fifty countries and uses the funds internationally for underprivileged children’s surgeries. According to the Operation Smile website, over 200,000 children are born with severe a cleft condition each year. These cleft conditions often leave children unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. Joshua Wall, president of the Operation Smile Club and a junior in history, said this is the first semester the club has been on its own. “Operation Smile Club was a part of the pre-health club in the past, but the decision was made for Operation Smile Club to be on its own. We don’t have an advisor for this. It’s just the students,” Wall said. Mackenzie Gibbons, a co-vice president of awareness and a freshman in biological sciences, said the club is
hoping for more student involvement this year. “I hope we can get more people involved this year,” Gibbons said. “It’s really a great cause and so rewarding to know you’re helping someone live a normal life.” Operation Smile Club is planning two fundraisers, according to Wall. “In the fall, we’re planning to go to businesses on Hillsborough Street to see if they will donate a percentage of their sales to the club for a week,” Wall said. “Then we’ll encourage people to go to these businesses, especially for that week.” The club is hoping to have the fundraiser sometime in October, but they are still planning, Wall said. “In the spring, we’re planning on having a run for Operation Smile,” Gibbons said. “This is our first year doing a run, so hopefully we will have a great turnout.” Operation Smile Club is planning on having the run in the middle of the spring semester.

who are very ill with another disease or who have major injuries,” the NIH website says. Koby Shell said that they do not know what caused Spencer to develop ARDS. “We still don’t know why he collapsed. We are still waiting for his heart test next week,” Shell said. Although Spencer Shell is doing well, doctors have not said when he will be able to leave the hospital. Koby Shell said that they have “no clue” when he will be released. “It depends on how the heart test turns out,” Koby Shell said. “They will be monitoring him over the next few days.” Koby Shell explained that they are trying to prevent him from being overwhelmed.

“We are really trying to protect his emotional state,” Koby Shell said. “He’s still very confused about what happened to him, and he doesn’t remember going for a run. But, the doctors tell us that is normal.” “He hasn’t read Facebook yet,” Koby Shell said. On Shell’s website, Koby wrote, “Information overload is a concern. Less is best right now, until he comes to grips with things. According to Koby Shell, friends can send cards to Spencer Shell through a website run by Rex Health Care: http://www.rexhealth.com/patients_ and_visitors/greeting_cards/ .
Students celebrate Indian festival, traditions with Ganesh Chaturthi gathering The festival of the elephantheaded god was celebrated at Champion Court Condominiums this weekend. Pranay Deshpande Staff Writer
Lord Ganesha arrived at the University for one and a half days this year. Ganesh Chaturthi, a popular annual Indian festival normally celebrated in September, ranges from one and a half days to 21 days. The celebration revolves around a clay idol that is brought home and
worshipped. The festival is celebrated to encourage social gatherings. Ganesha was considered to be lord of knowledge and prosperity. Idols range from six inches to over 25 feet. The idol is offered popular sweets made out of coconut and sugar called modaks. According to Saurabh Bengali, an event organizer and graduate student in computer science, more than 150 students were involved in the event this year. The immersion of the idol took place in Lake Raleigh on Sept. 12 at 6.30 p.m. Bengali said the student commu-
nity came together to authentic the festival. “It was genuine effort by us to make this festival as authentic as possible, one of the major factors in organizing this festival was to bring student community together in pious environment,” Bengali said. Bengali said he hopes the festival will be celebrated in the future and tradition will be carried forward by future students. Ben Matthew, a graduate student in business administration, said it was interesting to see a different community’s worship style. “It was a different style of worship,
nothing close to what I have ever seen, incredible to see so many people worshipping, it was interesting to observe the traditions of a different community,” Matthew said. Sagar Khale, a graduate student in business administration, said the event brought a sense of homecoming. “I felt a sense of Déjà vu and home coming; Graduate students from different departments and housing complexes welcomed the beloved lord with enthusiasm,” Khale said. According to Khale, the idol was specially f lown from India for the event. “2322 Champion Court resembled a
typical Indian temple with flowers and essence sticks. Hats off to those who made it possible,” Khale said. Prachiti Sak halkar, event organizer and graduate student in computer science, said the organization got permission from University authorities for the celebrations and procession for immersion. “Except from getting the idol from India, everything went smoothly, the authorities of N.C. State University were co-operative in giving us permission for procession and immersion,” said Sakhalkar.

reshmen, graduate students and transfer students are encouraged to vote Sept. 14, for the senate seats, according to Jennifer Meoni, student government elections commission secretary.

According to Wall, one surgery costs between $200 and $250. “When we have the first meeting of this year, we will discuss how many surgeries we’d like to fund, but I hope we can do at least 10,” Gibbons said. Wall said he first heard about Operation Smile on TV. “I saw something about Op-
eration Smile on television,” Wall said. “I saw how the kids with cleft lip or cleft palate are excluded from school. They’re scared to go because of how they get picked on and shunned.” Gibbons said she chose to join the club because of Operation Smile’s involvement with children. “I decided to get involved with Operation Smile because it truly changes children’s lives,” Gibbons said. “Without the cheap and simple operation to fix their cleft
lip or pallet, they would spend the rest of their lives looking very different than everyone else.” Wall said cleft lip and cleft palate are two different problems that are both caused by malnutrition in pregnancy. “Cleft lip is when the lip is split in one part,” Wall said. “Cleft palate is when the palate inside the mouth is split.”

The news students, whether they are freshmen or transfers, need to vote in this Student Government election. This election will affect their voice and representation on this campus for the next year.
We need your vote
s new college students, freshman you will begin your lives on your own, away from your families. You are free to make your own way and have your own opinions, because of the great nation you live in. Most of you are starting college as 18-year-olds, which means you are finally eligible to vote and really get involved as a citizen of the state and the country. But, the only way you can truly have a voice and a right to an opinion is if you vote. Although state and national elections are coming up, you have to remember to start local and small. Student Government is holding freshman, transfer and graduate student elections for open seats and first-year students need to vote

in these elections. It is crucial you realize the importance of your years’ representation in this body. Student Government will have the most direct effect on your lives as students, besides the N.C. State Board of Trustees and the UNC Board of Governors. Being represented in year and status on campus will make sure your point of view and position are understood and heard. Without your representatives, decisions could be made without your position ever being considered. However, the effectiveness of having the freshman and transfer seats filled depends on
the candidates who are elected. Freshmen, you need to learn that part of being a voter is staying informed and up-todate on events that affect your lives and knowing the people who are trying to represent you feel the same way about them. The worst thing a voter can do is blindly vote for a candidate, so don’t sell your opinion to just anybody. Freshmen and first-year students, there is no excuse for not knowing. All the candidates running are available for questions and comments. And, if they are not, they are probably not the best person for the job. Part of their job is to be
available for any constituent to talk to and if they cannot, they should not be trusted to represent you. Remember, despite being a freshman, transfer or even international student, this is your first exercise as members of a free, democratic republic. You have a chance to be involved in public affairs and policy in a way that millions of people and hundred of countries still have yet to achieve. Do not take your voice and your vote for granted. Voters, good luck finding the perfect candidate and may the most trustworthy person win.

The f irst amendment specifically, has b e e n on Chad my mind Rhoades quite a bit Senior Staff recently. Columnist The issues of Mosque building and Quran burning has taken over the news. The issues have surrounded the first amendment. What Rev. Terry Jones wanted to do was nothing short of atrocious. It is completely ignorant, and disrespectful to believe anyone can destroy another’s holy text and actually expect something positive to come from it. It is even more ignorant to believe “moderate” members of Islam should not only support the burning, but join in themselves. Rev. Jones wanted attention, and he got it. He is a perfect example of what is wrong with the United States today. These individuals fall on both sides of the spectrum, whether they are liberal or conservative. I am sure there are ignorant, outspoken people like this all over the world; however, the problem in the United States is they get publicized for it.
Freedom of press is guaranteed to us by the first amendment in our Bill of Rights. I believe the founders would turn in their graves if they knew how the media acted today. The media has transitioned from an informative body to pure garbage. It is impossible to even watch a news network, yes, I mean all of them, without getting a biased presentation of the “facts.” It has turned into an entertainment industry, and not an informative one. We care more a b out how much money Elin is getting from Tiger, or whether this is going to be Brett Farve’s last season in the NFL, than we do about the war in Afghanistan or the economic hardship our country is facing. What Rev. Jones did, and what the media did that surrounded the incident, was not only selfish, but dangerous. The minute Rev. Jones decided he wanted to burn a stack of Qurans and the first person that picked up the story put both themselves and the United States in danger. I could only imagine how outraged Muslims, both in our country and in Muslim nations, were when they got news of this. His actions make it appear the United States is at war with Islam, and that is simply not the case. With already shaky relations among Islamic nations, his actions and

the media publicizing his actions is the last thing the United States needs. There needs to be a change in our media today. There is a freedom granted by the Bill of Rights that allows us to have freedom of press, but it needs to be used responsibly. As a nation, we need to be informed about what is going on, but when we start endangering lives just to ma ke news people will want to watch, t h e re i s certainly a problem. Fortunately this problem wa s squashed before it became extremely ugly. I just hope people realize the potential repercussions of what could have happened. An old saying says “the problem with democracy is that every idiot has a vote.” The same problem comes with freedom of speech. Everyone can say what they want within reason, but that doesn’t mean they should. The same goes with media. Just because a story can be told, doesn’t necessarily mean it should be told.

Tasha, were decided to look the least alike. The other two pairs, Melissa Markus and her golden retriever, Maddie, who dressed alike for the event with matching shorts, shirt, hat and scarf, and Beverly Tucker and Tobi, who sported matching hair and N.C. State pride, were voted on by the audience. Despite a much louder cheer for the matching pair, Melissa and Maddie, Woodson said, “there’s only one way for a chancellor of N.C. State to decide. I have to go with N.C. State,” deeming Beverly and Tobi the winners. Another event that attracted attention was Rollover Rover. In the contest, judges counted how many times a dog will roll over on command before getting tired or dizzy, and stopping. One dog rolled her way into third place by consistently rolling the opposite way to what her owners were telling her. Owner Chris Kelly, University alumnus, and his girlfriend Irene Brandon, were both very proud of Lilly-Anne. “This is one of the few [events] we thought she could do,” Kelly said. “She has a mind of her own sometimes,” Brandon added. The owners got a $10 gift certificate and a bronze medal for Lilly-Ann. For the first time in the event’s history, the Dog Olympics featured the Paralympics, a special event designed for dogs with spinal cord injuries. “It really shows off the special human-animal bond,” Greene said. There were three events for the dogs that took place in the Paralympics: a cart costume contest, a race and an obstacle course. “It shows how well these dogs in carts can do,” Greene said. Dr. Natasha Olby, a neurologist at the Vet School as well as the president of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, introduced the Paralympics. She told the audience her motivation for starting the Paralympics was not only to thank the support they have gotten over the years, but also to raise positive awareness about dogs who have suffered spinal cord injuries. “A loving owner can do incredibly well and lead a happy life,” Olby said. The events helped to prove that point.
Garrett Parrish, a junior in chemical engineering, plays with his dog Chester at the Dog Olympics held at Moore Square Saturday. The Dog Olympics, hosted annually by the N.C. State College of Veterinary Medicine, incorporated numerous events for participants to demonstrate their canine’s talent.
In the costume contest, owners dressed their dogs in outfits that integrated their carts into the costume. One dog was dressed as the Bat Mobile, another as a pirate in a boat. Millar dressed her dog, Tasha, in a tutu. The winning dog was Tobi, dressed with N.C. State pride by her owner, Tucker. After this contest was the race, in which the dogs ran the length of the small demonstration field. The last event, the obstacle course, challenged the dogs to run from one corner of the demonstration field, cross a small, plywood foot-bridge and then go through a “maze” of buckets, where they would exit and sprint to the finish line. The dogs with the fastest times were awarded gift certificates to Unleashed, as well as small medals. After the events, Olby explained more about spinal cord injuries. “They are really common in dogs,” Olby said, “but many dogs recover from this injury.” The estimate for the number of all spinal cord injuries in veterinary of-

Students share knowledge at BugFest N.C. State students and faculty informed visitors about a wide range of insects at Museum’s insect festival. Allison Saito Staff Writer
Bug scientists from N.C. State went to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences this Saturday to teach the public about insects. Groups set up displays and demonstrations for visitors at the 14th annual BugFest. Hannah Burrack, an assistant professor in entomology, said it is a way to educate the public. “It’s a great outreach tool,” Burrack said. “We think about insects every day because it’s our job. Most people only think of bugs in a negative way, and this is a way to show them beneficial bugs.” Lena Guisewite, a graduate student in entomology, said it is a way to share their interest with others. “It’s great, so many people in one spot to celebrate arthropod diversity, especially with the general public involved,” Guisewite said. According to Jim Hunt, a visiting professor of biology and entomology, BugFest is mostly a family event. “We get a lot of young children, moms, dads, and everyone learns something,” Hunt said. “This is mostly a family affair, but you see a few curious [college students].” Many students and professors said they were delighted to see children learning about bugs. Heather Lessig, research technician in the biology department, said she likes to see their enthusiasm. “I like seeing all the kids around. Working in a university, you don’t see many kids around. It’s great to see them getting excited about sciencey things,” Lessig said. “We want to get them excited about butterflies and bugs in general.” According to Guisewite, whose group NATALIE CLAUNCH/TECHNICIAN was running a live insect display, children Adam Whisnant, an alumnus of N.C. State, volunteers his seventh year at BugFest. learn from their parents’ reactions as well Whisnant said he enjoys working at the Lepidoptera table, the butterflies and moths. “It’s the easiest way to get people interested in insects. Caterpillars are fun for kids to

border collies after watching a movie in the 1980s with a border collie in it. This inspired her to get two border collies. However, after one of the two dogs died in an accident and left the other heartbroken, Solum said she began looking for another border collie and found the organization. “They are wonderful dogs,” Solum said. Adopting a border collie from the organization costs $225 and includes up-to-date shots, behavior evaluations and getting the dog spayed or neutered. Solum said she loves being around people who know how to handle border collies. “We’ve been coming here for years.” Ryan Garret, a senior in biochemistry engineering, said “I don’t have a dog, but I’m looking at adopting one.” Garret said the event had good resources for learning about adoption. As with most rescue organizations, in order to adopt an animal, there is an application process. This involves giving background information, as well as allowing a volunteer come to check the potential home. The application process can often be tedious. Dawn Howard, co-founder of Southern Siberian Rescue, is very particular about where the dogs go. “We make sure that the home is a good match,” Howard said. Howard started the organization after she came to own five Siberians about 10 years ago. A couple of years later, in 2002, she started to rescue the Siberians from shelters. The cost to adopt a Siberian from Southern Siberian Rescue is $250. This includes up-to-date shots, getting the dog spayed or neutered, medical care until the adoption date and getting the dog microchipped. A microchip is like an internal, electronic ID tag. If a dog or cat becomes lost and is found and taken to a veterinarian’s office, most vets will scan the animal for a microchip. If the animal has one in it, it will tell the vet who he or she belongs to. Howard said that while Siberians may be very beautiful, many people don’t understand the responsibility behind owning one. “You have got to have a sense of humor to own these dogs,” Howard said, smiling at her Siberian.
‘Pack for Pakistan’ provides relief for flood victims The Pakistani Student Association and the Muslim Student Association have joined forces to pack boxes of donated items for flood victims. Nasir Khatri Staff Writer
Flooding in Pakistan has displaced millions of people throughout the povertystricken nation, and many N.C. State students have teamed up to help those affected by the disaster. The Pakistani Student Association and the Muslim Student Association have teamed up to create the “Pack for Pakistan” movement, which strives to provide relief and aid to the flood victims. So far, the aim of this organization has been to pack hundreds of boxes which contain donated items such as water, soy milk, juice, biscuits and blankets, which will then be shipped to the affected areas in Pakistan free of charge by PIA, Pakistan International Airlines. The United Nations has officially declared these floods the greatest humanitarian crisis in recent history, citing the fact that more people have been affected by these floods than the Southeast Asian tsunami in 2004, and the recent earthquakes in Kashmir and Haiti combined. According to the Anam Lodhi, a board member for
the organization and a junior in psychology, “the floods have truly ruined the lives of millions of Pakistanis and I believe it’s our obligation as humans to help those in need.” “We are continuing to accept donations and any help by the members of the Wolfpack will be greatly appreciated,” Lodhi said. Lodhi expressed resentment at the alarmingly low level of response to the disaster by other organizations on campus, including Student Government, who they contacted to assist them in the Pack for Pakistan movement. Furthermore, only a fraction of the people needing aid has been contacted by emergency crews. Statements by the United Nations and several independent research organizations have repeatedly stated that in the 10 days following the flood, only 10,000 flood packs had been disbursed by the government, for the 15 million people that need aid. For this reason, the Pack for Pakistan movement is donating the relief packages independently to a reputable, non-profit organization, and not directly to the Pakistani government. Pack for Pakistan is planning to hold a Pakistan Flood Relief Fundraising Dinner October 2. Tayyaba Rayyast, a board member for the movement, said “hopefully we’ll raise a substantial amount of money, and every cent of the proceeds will be donated to a reputable, non-profit organization that will give the money to those who are in dire need of the funds.”

Hopscotch Festival a new addition to Raleigh’s new look STORY BY MARK HERRING | PHOTOS BY JOSH BIELICK John Hubbard, a senior in communications, and other fans dance to Raleigh indie rock band The Love Language Sept. 11, 2010. The concert was part of Hopscotch, a three-day music festival organized by the Independent Weekly.
he Hopscotch Music Festival w a s t he biggest coordinated music event in Raleigh’s history. With 130 bands and artists representing various genres performing at 10 different venues in downtown Raleigh, the three-day event celebrated local music talent as well as contributions from international stars. As one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, Raleigh has recently transformed into a cultural center for music, food and nightlife. The brainchild of Independent Weekly’s Greg Lowenhagen and Grayson Currin, Hopscotch Music Festival brought growth to Raleigh’s music and artistic scene. A year ago Lowenhagen and Currin debated the possibilities of how to plan and execute such a music festival. Their main intention was to create a festival that paid tribute to local bands and to celebrate the promising music venues of Raleigh. The name Hopscotch came from their idea that people would hop from venue to venue. Moreover, they say Hopscotch won’t be a short-lived fling. “I don’t want to look back and say, ‘Remember when we did Hopscotch Fest?’” Lowenhagen said. “The goal is to keep this thing going.” The nascent festival attracted crowds from various generations. Along with homegrown indie rock bands, Hopscotch recruited rap artists, alternative rock bands from all across the U.S. and some foreign artists from as far away as Sweden and Iceland. The festival opened Thursday downtown at a collection of bars, nightclubs and public venues. Friday night, the festivities started early at 5:30 p.m. in City Plaza. The concert starred Raleigh band The Rosebuds, Canadian alternative band Broken Social Scene and Panda Bear, the lead singer of The Animal Collective. The show attracted a large student crowd eager to get its fill of indie music. “Broken Social Scene was what I came for,” Samatha Walker, a junior in zoology, said. Walker managed to get free

as learning from the people at the booth. “[We are] showing kids the insects aren’t scary and gross. But, a lot of times, the kids mimic the parents’ reaction,” Guisewite said. Andi Hawksley, a freshman in chemical engineering, was showing caterpillars to visitors. Hawksley said visitors’ reactions to the caterpillar crawling on her hand were unexpected and fun to see. “[Occasionally] when a parent and a child walk up, the parent pushes their child forward as a shield from the caterpillar,” Hawksley said. “It’s all volunteer. I also like to listen to the little kids be freaked out by the bugs. I like the enthusiasm,” Mary Beth Conrad, a freshman in mechanical engineering, said. Students from Entomology 203, an Introduction to the Honey Bee and Beekeeping, were telling visitors about

tickets since she volunteered a minimum of seven hours for Hopscotch. “It’s awesome to get in for free and I would definitely do it again,” she said. Jay Patel, a junior in biological sciences, excited to see the Chapel Hill band The Love Language, said he’s been pleased with the growth of Raleigh’s culture. “I like it that Raleigh has a great music scene and that we’re working on it even more now. It’s awesome to be a part of the first big music fest Raleigh’s had,” Patel said.
bees. Riley Huston, a senior in graphic design, said the chance to receive extra credit for ENT 203 motivated him to come to BugFest, but it was a worthwhile experience. “[I came] initially for extra credit, but it has helped us see what people don’t know about bees,” Huston said. Margaux Novak, a senior in English, is also a student in ENT 203. She said they helped many people at BugFest. “We are answering a lot of questions,” Novak said. “There was this one little kid who asked so many intelligent questions, it was great to see.”
“It’s really great that bands that I listen to a lot come to Raleigh,” William Hinrichs, a sophomore in zoology, said. “I am most pumped about Panda Bear, Broken Social Scene and Love Language. I listened to their stuff countless times, imagining what they will be like live. This concert was better than what I dreamed.” Local businesses saw Hopscotch as an opportunity to cater to the music crowd as well as increase profits. Various restaurants downtown kept their kitchens open past mid-

night and offered reduced price menus in light of Hopscotch. However, restaurants and bars were not the only business looking to make a buck off of Hopscotch. Erwann Domalain, a junior in biomedical engineering and employee of Raleigh Rickshaw, carted revelers around downtown during the festival. “Business has been great. They’re a hip crowd and they’re a blast. Plenty of people are looking for rides and I have been able to watch some of the shows,” Domalain said. “I’m

through the fence of the old practice football field and even from the top of the Reynolds Coliseum parking deck. “That’s definitely the biggest crowd I have ever seen in my life,” senior defender Lucas Carpenter said. “That’s the most fans I’ve ever played in front of. I would really love to see it again.” Despite the enormous crowd, the Pack struggled to get things going offensively, and conceded a goal in the 32nd minute. “They gave us great motivation,” Carpenter said. “We went down one but we never stopped fighting, and the crowd had a lot to do with that.” In the second half, the Pack seemed to be a different team, outshooting the Heels, and providing many goal-scoring opportunities. “It was a hard fought match,” Carpenter said. “Both teams had chances and opportunities. In the second half we definitely had the run of play and a lot of opportunities to score. We just

With fall in full swing, students, alumni, children, parents and even some University of North Carolina supporters ventured out of the woodwork to Dail Soccer Stadium for N.C. State’s ACC opener against No. 3 UNC. “The crowd was huge, huge, huge,” coach George Tarantini said. “I want to applaud my athletics director [Debbie Yow], because I think she understands what this means to us. I want to say thank you in the name of the N.C. State soccer team for the opportunity we had.” The crowd of over 3,000 spectators cheered, sneered and jeered from the permanent seats, additional bleachers behind each goal,
Cain said. “Thank God,It’s always great to score.” In the second half State dominated on offense ,State finished with a 17-5 shot advantage to come away with the win. “Anytime we win, and certainly at home finishing in front of our fans, it’s a positive, good thing for us,” State coach Steve Springthorpe said after the game. “Especially coming back from that loss at ECU.” While praising the play of his team, Springthorpe mentioned he was impressed by Chesnutt’s coaching.

couldn’t get in on one.” Tarantini agreed that the team showed improvement in the second half. “I think the energy from the second half was better, and that’s encouraging,” Tarantini said. “But we need to win. We are 0-1 in the league, now we have to recuperate and get ready for the next game.” Although the Wolfpack did not gain three points for a win, the young team did gain valu-

women, Springthorpe spent five seasons at Fresno State University. Florida International coach Thomas Chesnuitt served as Springthorpe’s first assistant for much of the time and the two have remained close in the years since. “It’s always a little different,” Springthorpe said about coaching against his former assistant.”But this is the second time I’ve had to do that. We coached against each other when he first left Fresno State and took over at Florida International. So I’m glad we got the win but sorry that he got the
loss. He’s got a great team. He’s a great coach and he’s done a great job rebuilding the program.” Springthorpe will face yet another former colleague when his team plays Old Dominion in its next game. “ODU is another important win,” Springthorpe said. “And it’s against my old coach that I used to coach for so it should be a good time visiting with a friend of mine. And hopefully we’ll get on the field and get another win.”

Cole, Defense fend off stingy Knights
Women’s golf begins season at Cougar Classic
21 points off turnovers enough to escape Orlando with victory.
The women’s golf team opened its season at the Cougar Classic at Yeamans Hall Golf Course in Hanahan, S.C. on Sunday. The Pack shot a 20-over par in the opening round and currently sits in 16th place out of the 21-team field. Senior Brooke Baker and freshman Ana Menendez led the Wolfpack by each shooting a three-over par in the first round. Freshmen Maureen Dunnagan and Brittany Merchand and sophomore Amanda Baker each finished seven-over par. The second round will be held today, while the final round wraps up Tuesday.

A week removed from settling into its season with a 48-7 win over Western Carolina, NC State passed a much sterner test Saturday night by defeating preseason Conference-USA favorite Central Florida, 28-21. It was the first nonconference road victory for the Pack since defeating the ECU Pirates in Greenville on October 20, 2007. The story of the night from Bright House Networks Stadium was the opportunistic Wolfpack defense, which forced five turnovers while only allowing 14 points. State’s effort was highlighted by junior linebacker Audie Cole’s impressive 12 tackles, one interception and one sack display. The team leader in tackles a year ago nearly matched his career high of 13 tackles, which came against Virginia Tech last November. With the Pack offense only able to muster 239 total yards, Cole said he

When coach Bryan Bunn came to Raleigh, few Wolfpack volleyball fans could have expected him to turn the program around in the blink of an eye. This weekend showed that he is on track to doing just that. The Wolfpack left little doubt this past weekend as to who the best team competing at the Hilton RTP Invitational was this year, going 3-0 in its first home appearance of the season. “Winning is always better than losing,” Bunn said. “It’s something that the program hasn’t experienced in a while, so it’s something that the girls are very excited about what we’re doing.” The team started out the tournament on Friday with a 3-1 win over Georgia

pressure on the quarterback. The Lincolnton native also noted that linebacker coach Jon Tenuta’s blitz-happy approach, which he became infamous for during his days at Georgia Tech, has given the defense a new and exciting dynamic. “It helps us out a lot,” Wilson said. “The balls are coming out fast and we need to react faster [than before].” Another theme, aside from

to extend the lead to 28-7 in the 3rd quarter was the first pick of the sophomore cornerback’s career. It was one of three interceptions that starting Knight quarterback Rob Calabrese ended up throwing after he entered the game with a streak of 98 consecutive passes without an interception. “That’s how our defense works,” Wilson said. “We try to get turnovers and try to get

and the rest of the defense enjoyed the opportunity to carry an offense that often picked up the slack for the second-worst scoring defense in the ACC last season. “They’ve kept us in games plenty of times before,” Cole said. “I think we owed them one. Whatever happened, we’ll get it fixed.” C.J. Wilson’s 43-yard interception return for a touchdown
Volleyball goes undefeated in weekend tournament.

finishing the game plus-five in the turnover department, was being able to capitalize on those opportunities. Despite a self-admitted disappointing offensive effort, Russell Wilson and Co. were able to convert the first three turnovers that Central Florida committed into touchdowns. After racing out to a 21-0 lead on the strength of Mustafa Greene and Dean Haynes rushing scores as well as Darrell Davis’ first ever collegiate touchdown catch, the offense only managed 85 yards the rest of the night. The Pack’s offensive struggles combined with strong play from Knights freshman quarterback Jeff Godfrey late in the third quarter to keep UCF in the game until Brandon Bishop forced a Quincey McDuffie fumble inside the Wolfpack’s 10-yard line with less than a minute to play. Coach Tom O’Brien said he was relieved more than anything to escape Orlando with a victory after nearly letting go of a 21-point lead through the third quarter. “That was a heck of a win for our team,” O’Brien said. “We thought we had things pretty much under control until they
Southern. The Pack followed up its first performance with a 3-0 victory Saturday morning over Mercer and finished its weekend off with a 3-0 win over Morehead State in the nightcap, bringing its overall record to 8-1. Much of the team’s success in the final game of the tournament came from an area the Pack has found itself much improved in—blocking. The Wolfpack out-blocked Morehead State 9-2, led by junior middle blocker Margaret Salata. Salata, who had one unassisted block and five block assists, attributes the improvement to new assistant coach Pete Hoyer. “Pete Hoyer, he knows how to teach how to block,” Salata said. “If you’re not clicking with him on how he’s saying something, he tries it another way. He doesn’t give up on you ever.” The Wolfpack also benefitted from a trio of outstanding transfers making their debut

The women’s soccer team outplayed Florida International to win 1-0, Sunday afternoon. After losing to East Carolina,0-1 in the first away game of the season Friday, N.C. State returned home and redeemed themselves with a win Sunday. Despite a number of opportunities on the offensive end, State was unable to come away with the victory against its instate rival due in large part to the play of East Carolina goalie Christiane Cordero, who made 11 saves. “It was a tough loss to ECU,” junior forward Tanya Cain said. “We don’t like losing against anyone, but especially
