Students, Duke Energy talk sustainabilty Joseph Havey

“ ... we need to be on good terms with our energy providers. We’re fighting for renewable energy, not against Duke.”

Deputy News Editor

Two students from the N.C. State Fossil Free group met with representatives from Duke Energy and the UNC -System sustainability division to discuss concerns about renewable energy on Wednesday, Sept. 4. After several months of preparation and meetings, Caroline Hansley, a senior in interdisciplinary studies, and Jaclyn Mills, a junior in plant and soil science, expressed their thoughts — in person — to the company that pro-

vides energy to N.C. State. Mills said the meeting was a rewarding experience. “It was really great overall to be at the table,” Mills said “We’re students, and UNC [representatives] said ‘We want you at the table because you started this whole thing.’” Last semester, the N.C. State Fossil Free group, which seeks to promote 100

percent use of renewable energy by UNC-System schools, launched a campaign to meet with Tom Ross, president of the UNC-System. Mills said the purpose of the meeting was to ask Ross to meet with Duke about its energy sources. “We can’t meet all of our climate neutrality goals if we’re still getting energy from nonrenewable sources,” Mills

said. N.C. State has a goal to reduce its energy consumption by 30 percent during the next year and a half. Hansley said this is laudable, but further energy reduction will be difficult without Duke’s help. “There’s only so much energy efficiency we can do,” Hansley said. “We need to start looking at what [Duke’s] giving us.”

Securing a meeting with Ross turned out to be easier than expected. Mills approached Ross on N.C. State’s campus after he delivered an address to the Student Senate about the proposed add/drop period changes. Ross gave Mills his business card, and the Fossil Free group set up a meeting with him and other members from the UNC general administration.

Mills said this was just a meeting to introduce the Fossil Free group to Ross, and that while there, she said she learned that Ross had a particular interest in renewable energy. Before his current position as head of the UNCSystem, Ross was president of Davidson College, which is located in Charlotte, N.C. Duke Energy is also headquartered in Charlotte, and Ross often lobbied the company for increases in renewable energy on Davidson’s campus.

“It’s nice that there are so many events open to dogs and handlers.”

According to Lyman, the RPD K-9 Unit uses tracking dogs which follow the fresh scent of a target, rather than trailing dogs which use a previously collected scent. “We want these dogs to think that there is nothing they can’t conquer, no human they can’t find,” Lyman said. Lyman also said that the RPD trains its dogs on a reward-based system, which better motivates dogs than other kinds of training systems. Lyman also said that dogs in the RPD K-9 unit are trained to understand a variety of languages including Dutch, German and French. In addition to competition and demonstrations, the event also featured a plethora of vendors, rescue groups and dog advocacy organizations from across the state. Penny Leigh, program manager of American Kennel Club Canine Partners program, led dogs and their owners through an obedience workshop known as the Canine Good Citizen test. “The Canine Good Citizen test is a 10-step test of a dog’s basic obedience,” Leigh said. “The AKC created it to promote responsible dog ownership and for people to train their dogs.”

Administrators and members of the Hispanic and Latino community met Friday to discuss what some students have deemed a troubling matter — the vacancy of the assistant director position for Hispanic Student Affairs. Abraham Dones, the former assistant director of the organization, stepped down from his position earlier this semester, prompting many questions students want answered. Guadalupe Arce-Jimenez, a senior in extension education and member of the Hispanic Latino Advisory Group, said students attended the meeting because many of them weren’t notified about Dones’ departure. “A lot of students were concerned, and a lot of them were not sure [about

the firing process],” Arce-Jimenez said. “I wanted them to hear from the administrators. Students are here showing interest for that position to be filled.” Cristal Vivanco, president of Mi Familia and a junior in international studies, said students also came to the meeting to make sure the University was looking for Dones’ replacement in a timely manner. “[Hispanic and Latino students] don’t have a very long presence with the University, and we’re still trying to accomplish so much,” Vivanco said. “We still need that guidance in order to stay strong and accomplish what we want to set up this year, so we’re here to make sure [the assistant director] spot doesn’t stay vacant for long.” However, Vice Provost for the Of-

Triangle residents raise money for childhood cancer cure Katherine Kehoe Correspondent

More than 200 people participated in Saturday’s CureSearch walk around Centennial Campus to raise money for child cancer research. CureSearch is a Maryland-based nonprofit which supports children’s enrollment in lifesaving clinical trials and provides information and resources to the families and support systems of children with cancer. “Part of the need [for CureSearch] is that the majority of treatments out there are aimed at adults so there is

really kind of a lack of funding and sometimes awareness about children’s cancer across the spectrum,” said Zachary Feuerherd, a community development manager for CureSearch. Participants attended the CureSearch walk for many different reasons. Some were parents with young children battling cancer, such as Pamela Levi, whose son, Zach, recently relapsed after a two-year remission. Zach suffers from neuroblastoma, a malignant form of cancer that develops from nerve tissue.

Duke Energy. This new team wrote a letter for Ross to send to Duke’s CEO, requesting a meeting about the energy tariff. At the time, Duke hadn’t released any details about the new rate category. Hansley said the meeting was essentially an investigation into how the UNC-System could partner with Duke in a similar fashion. “We were sending the s y mbol ic message t hat ‘we’re watching what’s going on with you, Duke, and we might want in,’” Hansley

said. “We just wanted to get that talk going. That was our whole goal of that meeting and letter.” Mills said the meeting went well, but the greater benefit was the connections the pair developed. “Sometimes I feel when people in general are running campaigns, they want to campaign against something—against Duke Energy, against dirty energy,” Mills said. “But I think it’s a good perspective to see that we need to be on good terms

with our energy providers. We’re fighting for renewable energy, not against Duke.” Mills said while some people disagree with this idea, the meeting with Duke helped establish a base for future activity. “I have friends and people that I campaign with that disagree,” Mills said. “But I think it was really beneficial to be at the table with the UNC administration and Duke officials. That was great. I think it was also necessary so we can move

forward and look at other things too.” Mills encourage students who are interested in the Fossil Free group to attend the next meeting this Tuesday, from 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m in Daniels Hall 232. “We are very open to ideas on how to move forward,” Mills said. “We have some ideas but we need more input on them. The more brains working together, the better.”

tion] is a little disrespectful to the work they did. “It’s not always clear what the goal is with hiring, and I would strongly advise that [administrators] personally speak to the student body.” To address these concerns, Director of Multicultural Student Affairs Rod Bradley said students will be “100 percent a part of the search process.” Bradley also said the University will be conducting a regional and national search, and the new assistant director for Hispanic Student Affairs will be named no later than January 2014. “We are glad students can participate and contribute their voice to search process,” Bradley said. “We’re excited for [students’] continued support, and MSA is working diligently to make our students continue to be supported.” Bradley also said he’s had a conversation within the MSA office and that faculty members are interested in stepping up to provide additional sup-

port for the Latino community and that he will make a “special commitment” to Hispanic students during the search process. Woodard and Tracy Ray, assistant vice provost for student diversity, said budget cuts have prevented the University from filling Done’s position faster. “It has never been a point to not fill the position, but when someone leaves you have to pay benefits,” Ray said. “Be mindful of budgets cuts. As soon as funding is available we will fill that position.” Ray also said a small hiring board, which includes students, will speed up the process. Vivanco said she had mixed feelings after the meeting. “Hopefully having Dr. Ray ... speak to the students personally will serve to quell their doubts about certain things,” Vivanco said. “Here they can hear me and understand where I’m coming from. From a personal level, I’m not that satisfied but from

an organizational standpoint, [I am].” Woodard said the University regrets student worries about Dones’ departure, and the OID still maintains its goal of helping Hispanic and Latino students at N.C. State. “Unfortunately, in a personnel situation, we can never talk fully and freely what may have precipitated someone’s departure or where someone might have gone,” Woodard said. “But our point is we want students to know is that [the OID] is still very supportive of Hispanic-Latino students on campus and we will be conducting, as soon as we can go through the appropriate channels, a search. “In that respect we’re moving in a fairly timely manner to get a new staff member in who can be in charge of that area.” The advisory group also discussed plans for Hispanic Heritage Month at N.C. State and addressed other HLAG subcommittees.

fice of Institutional Equity and Diversity Joanne Woodard couldn’t address ArceJimenez’s concerns because the University isn’t “legally obligated” to disclose details about Dones’ departure. “When it comes to personnel there are some things we can’t say or do,” Woodard said. “We can say that Mr. Dones is no longer with us, and we will be conducting a search [to fill Dones’ position].” Despite Woodard’s explanation, Vivanco said she still had some reservations about the process. “Hopefully the reputation of OID doesn’t crumble in the eyes of the students because some people are very upset,” Vicanco said at the meeting. “There’s a lot that Abe did for us.

Beth Lippert has worked in childhood oncology for 33 years. Lippert said she participated in the walk because of the good she sees coming from cancer research. “CureSearch is awesome because when I first started out the cure rate for childhood leukemia was like 10 percent, and now leukemia’s cure rate is like 95 percent,” Lippert said. “That is all from research.” The event began with informative speeches, CureSearch announcements and a quick description of where the teams would be walking. Before beginning the walk around Centennial Campus, participants stood together in solidarity to remember their loved ones who lost the battle to childhood cancer. Feuerherd said CureSearch raises funds through individual donors and major gifts, but the majority of proceeds come in through walk programs.

trials as well as providing the funding to be sure they are able to do so. “Children participate in these clinical trials and that’s why their outcome is better,” Lippert said “Adults don’t usually participate in clinical trials and their outcome is a lot worse.” According to the American Cancer Society, about 80 percent to 90 percent of adults survive acute lymphocytic leukemia, while the number of children who survive the disease is more than 90 percent. CureSearch holds about 60 fundraising walks all across the country each year to help raise money to support children with cancer. “We do [a walk] obviously here in Raleigh. We have one in Charlotte, but they go all the way to places like San Francisco and Chicago,” Feuerherd said.

Green jobs sector grows in size Danielle Cullen Correspondent

America’s “green jobs sector” is on the rise, according to a report from Environmental Entrepreneurs. The environmental group released a study earlier this month, which reported nearly 40,000 new green jobs created during the second quarter of 2013. A green worker is usually employed in the energy industry and seeks to help lessen the human impact on the environment. A student seeking to work in the green jobs sector may study human impact on the environment and “greener,” more efficient ways of living. This includes everything from more energy-efficient homes to more sustainable ways to keep us safe. Lynn Albers, a postdoctoral student in mechanical engineering, said that N.C. State offers courses to help students prepare for joining the green jobs sector. Seniorlevel electives include Energy Conservation and Industry Design of Solar Thermal Sys-

to encourage interest in elementary and middle school student through hands-on activities that teach science. “[The goal] is to remove the fear factor of learning these disciplines,” Albers said. “It’s also to help the parents teach the materials to their children so they can succeed in school.” That success in school should translate to real world success after college. Bryan Maxwell, a graduate student in environmental engineering said N.C. State graduates work for a variety of green jobs. “Graduates [in Environmental Engineering] work for John Deere, the EPA and we had one [graduate] who was the Prime Minister of Irrigation and Drainage in Egypt,” Maxwell said. Maxwell said green jobs will combine all disciplines to help remediate our impact on the world. “You are getting to use the principals of engineering, math, and science to … turn back the hourglass of people’s impact on the world,” Maxwell said.




Real activism is offline


ast January, we ran a story titled “Student activism on the decline,” in which we detailed the startlingly low number of student protests against proposed tuition increases. (There were none.) However, if you’ve read the front cover of today’s issue, you’ll see that at least the N.C. State Fossil Free group is defying this trend. The article, “Students, Duke Energy talk sustainability” details a long string of meetings which led up to a meeting between student representatives and Duke Energy. Our intent wasn’t to bore you with a long narrative.

The unsigned editorial is the opinion of the members of Technician’s editorial board, excluding the news department, and is the responsibility of the editor-in-chief. Rather, we hoped to illustrate that there are student groups on campus who care enough about an issue to work for almost an entire year to accomplish something. Get ready for more articles about the Fossil Free group — the student organization says it’s just getting started. Whether or not you agree, we think the students at Fossil Free are deserving of our


Why feminists should participate in the Miss America Pageant


rowns have represented power ever since Constantine the Great wore them during his reign as Roman Emperor from 306 A.D. – 312 A.D. But w ith the creation of b e au t y pageants, crowns have come to represent power Megan v ia beaut y Ellisor rather than Deputy power v i a Viewpoint Editor political standing. But is that such a bad thing? Yesterday, 50 women competed to be crowned Miss America. As I write this, the competition has yet to start. Johna Edmonds, a fellow member of the Pack, represented North Carolina. And while many students are proud to have our school represented, I’m sure some feminists are disappointed by the fact that one of our own is partaking in a competition that seems purely vanity-based. But there is a lot of money in pageants: Miss America 2014 won $50,000 in scholarship money. “Last year, the Miss America Organization awarded more than $45 million to the approximately 12,000 contestants who competed across the country,”

said Hilary Levey Friedman, a sociologist and author of Playing to Win: Raising Children in a Competitive Culture. “Every smart young woman should consider competing in the Miss America Pageant.” The compet it ion may sexualize women, but the financial reward is enough for most people to leave their morals behind. And while I don’t usually agree with giving up morality for financial gain, I think the causes that many beauty pageant contestants use their money and fame to promote are worth the lapse in morality. Take Nancy Redd, who was crowned Miss Virginia 2003 and placed in the top 10 at Miss America 2004. She graduated from Harvard University with a degree in women’s studies before participating in the competition. In her article in the Room for Debate section of The New York Times, Redd said she gave several interviews to answer the question that I’m sure many of you are asking yourselves right now—why would a feminist compete in a beauty pageant? She wanted to use “the power of the crown,” she said, to “reach young women for whom the trickle down of parental politics meant that without even giving it a chance, feminism

was a dirty word, a suspect philosophy lambasted at the dinner table, sometimes in the pulpit and even at school.” Redd took advantage of the system by using the fame she gained from a so-called anti-feminism competition to promote feminism. And those who are crowned Miss America have even more influence—Angela Baraquio Grey, Miss America 2001, visited more than 40 states to support her cause, Character in the Classroom: Teaching Values, Valuing Teachers. She also spoke at the Pentagon and testified before the education caucus on Capitol Hill. These women have taken advantage of the fact that they are sexualized to increase their networks, promote important messages and further their education. Yes, the competition, which began as a bathing beauty contest in 1921 to attract tourists to Atlantic City after Labor Day, does sexualize women—but it also empowers them. Although I would prefer to live in a world where women don’t have to wear bathing suits to earn money and have a voice, I think the smartest women will use the system in their favor rather than simply complaining about it.

coverage simply because they’re doing things worth talking about. The meeting with Duke was to explore a possible new rate category for N.C. State. We like that because the less the UNC-System has to pay, the less you have to pay … or so the saying goes. More importantly, though, members from the UNC general administration invited Caroline Hansley and Jaclyn Mills, both members

of the Fossil Free group, to the meeting. And fittingly so — it was the work of Mills, Hansley and other students that cause the meeting to happen in the first place. In an age of laughingly ineffective social activism, the Fossil Free group stands out. We applaud its members for their hard work and impressive results. If you’re interested in the “fossil-free” cause, we encourage you to stop by Daniels Hall for the group’s next meeting. Hansley, Mills and the rest are onto something, and we think they’re worth checking out.

Reading: A good diversion from reading Kevin Schaefer Staff Writer

When it comes to procrastination, the path most travelled by is more commonly that of television, video games and naps. But while students busy themselves avoiding reading their textbooks, one avenue for procrastination goes ironically overlooked—reading. Pleasure reading in lieu of studying may have both good and bad effects on mental and physical health, according to Bart Craig, an N.C. State professor of psychology. “I think it’s healthy for anyone to make time for any leisure activity, rather than just working all the time,” Craig said. “Reading is certainly as good a leisure activity as any other and may offer the additional benefit of helping the student hone his or her language skills.” Particularly when compared to the continually increasing amount of time college students devote to social networking sites and to other forms of technology, reading for fun can be a great way to engage in a more productive form of leisurely activity than its alternatives. When looking at the psychological impact of leisure reading in terms of procrastination, Craig said several factors tend to come into play. “Without assuming that

reading is different from any other kind of leisure activity, some personality variables that may be relevant are: conscientiousness, delay of gratification, impulsivity, impulse control and sensation seeking,” Craig said. Depending on how a person relates to these traits and how the traits relate to one another, that person will be more inclined to read for pleasure instead of reading for school. Kelsey Beamer, a sopho-

more in social work, said she always lays aside time for leisure reading. “I have always had a passion for reading, and I continue to read for fun outside of my classroom material,” Beamer said. “However, because I am a CHASS major I have enormous amounts of reading and writing to do for my classes. I feel that sometimes my desire to read what I want to read conflicts with what I’m required to read.”

With the demands college students face in terms of heavy course loads, setting aside time for leisurely reading can be difficult. “I really think [being too busy to read] is unfortunate,” Beamer said. “Sometimes, if I’m really into a book, I can’t seem to put it down and this often interferes with my studying, reading other assigned reading and sleeping. I think, unfortunately, the only solution to this is time

management. You honestly just have to be able to tell yourself when to put down the book and focus on what has to be done.” Stephen Wise, a senior in biochemistry, faces the same problem. “I’ve honestly really had to cut back on my leisure reading because of the workload associated with my major,” Wise said. “In addition, my non-class reading further sub-divides into two groups:

project-related and pure leisure.” Wise also said organizational skills contribute greatly to how and when he is able read. “When it comes to reading for pleasure, I’m not nearly as structured,” Wise said. “I generally hold off on reading until the weekend because it’s easier for me to become completely lost in the story I’m reading. I can lose track of time to the point of forgetting to eat or sleep, with a recent record of 26 hours straight in a reading binge, with no breaks for food or sleep, and I can be aggressive when people interrupt me.” Even creative writing majors such as sophomore Adam Barnhardt find it difficult to set aside time for this activity. “I have a lot of trouble reading for pleasure during the school year,” Barnhardt said. “Naturally, as a creative writing major this irritates me. I’m not able to immerse myself in the market in which I plan to publish… Maybe once or twice a semester, I’ll get to a point with my work where I’m able to pick up one of my books. Otherwise, I’ll feel guilty if I read for pleasure instead of for school. I always have something to read for school. I take full advantage of winter and summer breaks to read for pleasure.”

Alumna spends 74 days, biking 3,794 miles for charity Emma Cathell Staff Writer

One N.C. State graduate spent her summer biking across the country and in the process raised $4,570. Lauren Ramsey, who graduated from NCSU with a degree in Art and Design in 2010, biked across the United States and for a nonprofit organization, Bike and Build. The organization hosts cross-country biking trips and helps fund affordable housing for low-income families. “It’s an annual summer program to get young people involved with affordable housing mostly,” Ramsey said. “The whole idea is that you’re raising money for affordable housing and also building houses as you bike across the country.” Bike and Build started in 2002, with only two cross-country routes, northern and central. Since then, they’ve added six more, reaching their maximum of eight different routes. Ramsey rode the central route, which starts in Virginia Beach and ends in Canon Beach, Oregon. The route encompassed 3,794 miles in 74 days, from May 31 to August 10. “Every day feels like a dream because you wake up, and the sun is rising and you’re riding your bike,” Ramsey said. “I really liked climbing the Rocky Mountains.” Ramsey said working hard to get to see all the view was the most redeeming part of biking through the Rocky Mountains. According to Ramsey, her detour through Red Canyon is among the most magnificent things she ever witnessed. “That’s how I’d imagine the Grand Canyons to be, but I’m sure much bigger,” Ramsey said. “There was this beautiful, streaming river flowing through this gorgeous, giant red canyon.” Bike and Build organizes the cross-country trips and plan them in-depth, according to Ramsey. Each day’s schedule is already planned, with the destination and the miles pre-determined ahead of time. “We have a host every night and a certain amount of miles to get to that town. It’s very preplanned,” Ramsey said. “We have a support van that follows us and we each have a duffle bag in it. If we have any mechanical problems or injuries, the van can pick you up.” Ramsey said the support van makes the trip much safer and a lot less intimidating. The ages of those who participate in Bike and Build range from 18 to 25 years, and Ramsey just made the cut, as 25-year-olds are the oldest the organization allows.

“I just turned 25 in April. So I was like, ‘This is it. This is the last chance,’” Ramsey said. “This was a good launching point to start something new and go somewhere new.” The group of 29 bikers pedaled through the central route, which included roads, trails, hills, and mountains. Through rain and shine, the bikers forced themselves to carry onward. “There was one day in Charlottesville, Virginia, our first mountain day and one of our longest days, at 86 miles, where it was raining and cold,” Ramsey said. “Only 10 of us actually finished that day and I was the last of two who did.” Ramsey said that day was possibly the most mentally and physically challenging thing she’d ever done. Although some days were tougher than others for the bikers, by the end of their adventure, all of the rough spots seemed to be worth it. The end was happy, sad, confusing and, as Ramsey put it, “a sea of emotions.” “That last week, we knew it was coming and we were all riding a lot slower and taking our time,” Ramsey said. Ramsey said biking the last week was bittersweet because everyone is going a million different directions as soon as it’s over. The bikers celebrated on the beach when they finished, according to Ramsey. Ramsey said she has a passion for biking for several reasons. She said she loves the challenge and the freedom biking brings her, and that’s what keeps her pedaling. “I love the independence that it allows,” Ramsey said. “It just allows you, especially as a woman, I think, to be able to go and do whatever you want and to not have to rely on anyone.” Ramsey said riding on a bike is liberating and empowering for her and that she probably feels the strongest while on a bicycle. After the 3,794-mile adventure, Ramsey is still just as fired up about Build and Bike and her adventure as she was before. “If anyone is curious about Bike and Build, I would do jumping jacks telling them to do it because it’s fantastic,” Ramsey said. “Getting everything prepared for it was a little overwhelming because of the gear, the fundraising and the planning, but then once you start, it’s like, ‘Oh, that was nothing. This is fantastic.’” Ramsey said she feels accomplished and that she wouldn’t change a thing about her experience. “It was perfect,” Ramsey said. “It’s the most positive memory ever, and I wish I could just do it forever.”

Student Facebook trolls warrant SG action Taylor Quinn Staff Writer

Wolfpack Students Facebook page: A place where students can go to ask questions, get answers and get harassed? Recent Student Government meetings regarding the page evoked complaints of harassment instead of what many students thought was the problem—trolling. Trolling is the act of provoking someone, typically in an online forum, for the sole purpose of eliciting an argument. “I do that stuff on the group and troll because it’s fun and I like making people laugh,” Alex Sanchez, a senior in public relations and a regular on the Wolfpack Students page, said. “I feel like doing stuff like that is part of every successful online community.” Sanchez said people troll most social websites. “On Reddit, tons of people troll,” Sanchez said. “It’s set up a little bit differently than Facebook groups, but tons of

people are trolls. But if you sift through all of those, there’s real stuff out there, there is still really insightful answers to questions and interesting facts or helpful things, so it’s not really a problem.” Though Sanchez trolls regularly, he said that the Facebook page is still useful. “I think Wolfpack students is still a really valuable tool for students, organizations and whoever else is a member,” Sanchez said. “I don’t think it’s useless, but I do definitely think it could be

better managed.” Student Government manages the page and had an open dialogue session last Monday night, asking students to offer input on the new bill, which is supposed to regulate the page. Sanchez, who attended the meeting, said it went well and said he found it surprising that student body president, Alex Parker, wanted to moderate the group as little as possible. “It was nice to be able to share some of my thoughts and ideas about the page,”

Sanchez said. “Though the meeting didn’t really accomplish much in terms of creating and passing legislation, it did manage to get the ball rolling.” Sanchez said he believes that the next meeting, held on Sept. 18, will be the most important and he advises that students attend. “I found it interesting that only a small handful of non-SG students showed up despite the ‘numerous complaints’ SG says it has received,” Sanchez said. Sanchez said he, for the

most part, agrees with the way in which Student Government handles the group. “I don’t agree with students who are saying that Student Government should be focusing on bigger things because this is one of the few things it has direct control over,” Sanchez said. “It’s nice to see them taking on something they’ve received complaints about.” Sanchez said he appreciates Student Government’s acceptance and encouragement of student input at the meeting. “One of the challenges I

posed to Parker and the rest of Student Government was to use the page as a tool for collecting feedback from students,” Sanchez said. “Since the meeting, I’ve noticed they’ve used [Wolfpack Students] a couple of times to poll students on a few things Student Government was thinking about. I think that’s great and would like to see more of that in the future.” Stephon Beaufort, a sophomore in mathematics, follows the Wolfpack Students page and attended the meeting Sunday. “I thought it was productive in understanding where Wolfpack Students is right now, but I’m not sure that Student Government went out of the forum with a clear course of action to take,” Beaufort said. Beaufort said the future of the page is ambiguous. “I can only assume that [the page] is going to be more tightly moderated but to what extent remains unguessable for me,” Beaufort said.

chested down a cross from the left side, swiveled onto his right foot and riff led a shot at the Tigers’ goal, forcing a brilliant reflex save from Clemson’s goalkeeper. State went into halftime down 1-0, but came out of the break on the full attack. The Pack created multiple chances to tie the game, but couldn’t put the ball in the net. Clemson’s defense also played its part, self lessly throwing their bodies in front of shots to block surefire goals for the Wolfpack. The game was physical throughout. The referee handed out six yellow cards, and State created several scoring opportunities via free kicks, but the Tigers defense held strong. The Pack’s best chance of the night came in the 78th minute, when A lbadawi played a through ball to junior forward Nick Surkamp. Surkamp ran the ball down behind the Clemson defense

and did well to shield off his defender, but pushed his shot just wide with the goal at his mercy. The Wolfpack tried desperately to grab a goal in the closing minutes, working furiously to send the game into overtime. But a goal wasn’t on the cards for State, despite outshooting the Tigers 11-1 in the second half. Albadawi was disappointed the Pack couldn’t get a result against the Tigers, but said that he’s happy with the way his team is playing. “The goals will start coming for us,” Albadawi said. “But it’s good that we are creating chances instead of not creating anything at all.” “It’s kind of like a chain reaction: once the ball goes in once, you have all the confidence in the world. You keep shooting and the ball magically goes in somehow. You’ve just got to shoot because you never know what will happen.”

Clemson scored in the first 29 seconds of the match to beat N.C. State 1-0 on Saturday night in Raleigh. Tigers’ junior midfielder Manolo Sanchez latched onto a loose ball and fired past State’s senior goalkeeper Fabian Otte to score the game’s lone goal. The Wolfpack (3-1, 1-1 ACC) outshot No. 9 Clem-

son (5-0, 2-0 ACC) 17-6, but couldn’t find the back of the Tigers’ net to equalize. “We gave up a really early goal which was disappointing,” head coach Kelly Findley said. “I thought for the first 20 minutes they were all over us, and then we kind of woke up and had a great second half.” “I think if we play the way we did in the second half, we’re going to have a great year,” Findley said. “But again, you’ve got to put together 90 minutes.”

The loss is State’s first of the season and its fifth in a row to Clemson. The Pack’s next game comes against ACC foe Virginia (1-3, 0-2 ACC) on Friday. Clemson dominated the Wolfpack physically and created numerous chances for its strikers early in the game. But after conceding to Sanchez early, Otte stepped up to make three crucial saves for the Wolfpack. Otte’s acrobatics kept State within striking distance of the Tigers.

Pack takes two of three at Rice Invitational Daniel Wilson Staff Writer

N.C. State (8-1) dropped its first match against Missouri (11-0), but rebounded to beat Houston Baptist (56) and Rice (3-7) at the Rice Invitational II last weekend in Houston. “We knew going in, it would be a lot more challenging tournament,” junior outside hitter Dariyan Hopper said. “All the teams played great defense and didn’t make a lot of errors.” Junior middle blocker Alesha Wilson and junior libero Alston Kearns were named to the All-Rice Invitational II team for their respective performances. Wilson tallied 33 kills while Kearns led the Wolfpack in digs with 64. Hopper led the Wolfpack attack with 42 kills through the weekend. Sophomore setter Tanna Aljoe amassed a total of 116 assists, including a career-high of 50 in Saturday’s contest against Rice. “All week in practice, we

just worked on our game and focused on what we could do on our side of the net,” Hopper said. Missouri continued its spotless season by handing State its first loss of the year in straight sets. “We had our chances in sets one and two,” head coach Bryan Bunn said. “We did not take advantage of them. [Missouri is] a very efficient team. They did not give us many points.” The Pack kept the first set close, but Missouri jumped on a 9-1 run and eventually took the first set, 25-20. The Pack opened the second set with a 7-2 run, but the Tigers responded with a 6-1 run late in the set to cut the Pack’s lead to one. State reached set point, but the Tigers rallied to take the set in extra points, 27-25. The third set began with both teams once again neck and neck, but Missouri jumped ahead thanks to a 134. This lead was all the Tigers needed to take the third set and the match. State rebounded against Houston Baptist on Friday
