Students participate in cancer fundraiser
Triangle film festival to begin on Wednesday
About 100 business representatives, students and Triangle residents attended a fundraiser on Sunday in honor of former N.C. State student Ian Peterson, who died of lymphoma last year at the age of 21. Shelten Media, the company sponsoring the event, will donate the proceeds to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Carolina at the Hemlock Plaza in Cary. In October 2012, Peterson was diagnosed with advanced Burkitt’s lymphoma, a cancer of B-lymphocyte white-blood cells of the immune system. Known to his friends as “the guy who did everything,” Peterson continued to work hard at several jobs and served as president of the Grains of Time.
members elected to the National Academy of Engineering. Despite these accomplishments, Woodson said N.C. State was not getting the attention it deserved, and it was having trouble keeping its best faculty members. Because of this, Woodson said he has been especially interested in improving N.C. State’s brand, because although it may seem trivial, maintaining a strong brand name is critical in keeping the best fac-
The inaugural Triangle Campus Film Festival w ill ta ke place Wednesday 7-9 p.m. in the James B. Hunt Library Auditorium. The Festival is sponsored and organized by the Video Production Society at N.C. State. Formerly known as the N.C. State Film Club, the Video Production Society became an official club this year. The club offers students a place to find fellow film production enthusiasts and a chance to make a project idea come to life. Sam Mazany, a senior in communication and president of the Video Production Society, said the name change has helped define the group. Instead of people coming in to watch movies, the group has helped members expand their film-production resumes. Rather than work on one project as a group, members present ideas and find partners to produce a project, Mazany said. “We meet up and help work on each other’s projects,” Mazany said. “No one person can make a really good film. You need to be working with a lot of people.” Mazany said she wanted to

“This is about survivorship, and it’s also about honor.” Kevin Snyder, Team Cure Leader
“We put on this event to raise money and awareness for cancer research, and we did it to honor Ian,” said Shelli Dallacqua, president of Shelten Media. Dallacqua declined to state exactly how much money had been raised, but she said Shelten Media had “met its goals.” Dallacqua said the money will be donated to the leukemia and lymphoma society of North Carolina on behalf of Team Cure, a fundraising group seeking to raise $131,500 for LLS in 2014. “It’s not just about us, and it’s definitely not about me,” said Kevin Snyder, Team Cure leader. “It’s about leukemia and lymphoma and helping to do something today that could impact change tomorrow. I’m here today because my sister’s alive because somebody did something in the past. What we do today can make a change for tomorrow.” Total Concepts Salon sponsored a “Shave-a-Thon,” and attendees could purchase raffle tickets from a variety of vendors. The Grains of Time performed several numbers, and each soloist paused to say something special about Peterson. Luke Miller, the Grains of Time choreographer, said the group enjoys doing events in honor of

Woodson talks about NCSU brand potential Ravi Chittilla Assistant News Editor
Chancellor Randy Woodson spoke to about 30 students and faculty members about the future and brand potential of N.C. State on Friday in the lounge of Berry Residence Hall. The discussion was part of the Research Unplugged lecture series, which is hosted by the University Honors Program. Woodson said when he arrived at N.C. State after working in vari-
ous capacities at Purdue University for more than 25 years, he said he knew this university was “world class and had real strengths,” but said he saw it as a case of “where the sum of the parts weren’t greater than the whole.” Woodson said the accomplishments of the faculty members at N.C. State were astounding, and unlike Purdue, which had three elected members to the National Academy of Sciences at the time when he left that institution, N.C. State had 11 elected members of the NAS, and 11
Students celebrate Native-American culture Staff Report
The Native American Student Association hosted its 24th-annual Powwow at Miller Fields Saturday to celebrate traditional Native-American activities. NASA has been planning the event since November, which included drum and dance competitions as well as games and authentic food and art, according to president-elect of NASA and sophomore in engineering, Jacob Jacobs. “We didn’t change a lot of things from last year’s Pow-Wow, but everyone thought it ran a lot more smoothly than the one last year,” Jacobs said. “Based on other Pow-Wows, it went very well in my opinion. Jacobs said his goal for next year’s Pow-Wow is for it to be more educational and involve more of the campus community. “I would like for it to be more educational for people who don’t know a Pow-Wow is,” Jacobs said. “I want to make next year’s PowWow bigger in the sense that more people experience the culture.”

Polls will reopen for positions not filled in last week’s Student Government election at noon today and close at noon Tuesday. Because of a problem with ballot-filter settings, elections for senior class president and College of Agriculture and Life Science senate seats have to be re-run, Brian Parks, a senior in accounting and vice chair of the Student Government told the Technician last week. Candidates for senior class president include Shreye Saxena, a senior in electrical and computer engineering, and Molly Basdeo, a junior in middle grades education. Candidates for the three CALS senate seats are Lindsey Reedy, a freshman in animal science, Jonathan Riggs, a sophomore in animal science, Peter Kane, a junior in animal science, and Deans Eatman, a sophomore in agricultural science.

When William Crumpler, a sophomore in materials science and engineering, asked Woodson if new buildings on campus such as the Talley Student Union and the James B. Hunt Jr. Library had been instrumental in the brand improvement of the University, Woodson said these structures were not built with the intention of doing so. “We needed those [facilities] here at N.C. State, and I wasn’t even aware of the im-
pact that Hunt Library would have,” Woodson said. “Ultimately, the library with its many technologies is a place of learning.” Woodson dismissed the notion that the U.S. News World Rankings measure the quality of an education a university offers. “U.S. News does nothing to measure the quality of the faculty,” Woodson said. “All it measures is how much money you spend on your students and the size of your classes.” Woodson said there is not a single public university in

create another resource on campus that would easily allow students to express themselves through film. “I wanted to make the Video Production Society an official organization because it has meant so much for me,” Mazany said. “I went from not working on any projects to making three different films in the past year. I wanted to leave something that when I left they would have better venues to go through.” After working at and submitting projects to Campus MovieFest at N.C. State, Mazany said several members of the Video Production Society wanted another film outlet with fewer restrictions, “We wanted to open the festival up to a wider audience and allow people to have more time to work on projects,” Mazany said.

Other universities involved included UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke University, Appalachian State and UNC-Charlotte. Mazany said her initial fear of not having enough material for the Festival was quickly forgotten after receiving more than 50 submissions. With the limited time of the Festival, the Society picked 14 films including music videos, comedies, dramas and documentaries. In addition to the films, Sarah Stein, an associate professor of Communication, will be speaking briefly at the Festival.

The Cap is back and better than ever Captain America: The Winter Soldier Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Marvel Entertainment
Holden Broyhill Features Editor
Captain America: The Winter Soldier set a box-office record in its opening weekend, and rightfully so. This latest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a pure hit sure to please new and old fans alike. The film adds much-needed depth and emotion to the iconic hero by effectively capturing Captain America’s struggle to find his place in a world that has moved on without him. In addition to the superhero side of Cap, the film also highlights the struggles Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) faces as a soldier. One of the stronger points of the film is the introduction of Cap’s sidekick Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie). Wilson is a soldier who specializes in advanced aerial combat and connects with Rogers as both struggle to adapt to everyday life away from combat. Each choreographed action sequence is well executed and does a fantastic job of employing practical effects to give these scenes a natural feel. This works extremely well considering the film emphasizes on Marvel’s downto-earth characters. The stunts are no doubt impressive, but they aren’t over the
top. Making the characters believable and less powerful allows directors Anthony and Joe Russo to effectively highlight real-world issues. One of the only drawbacks to the movie is the longer fight scenes seem pointless and, at times, are a tad boring. The fight scenes also clearly establish Rogers as a force to be reckoned with. Captain America: The Winter Soldier highlights Rogers is not only a super soldier, but he is also extremely skilled in hand-tohand combat. Watching Rogers trade blows with various enemies without solely relying on super strength makes the fight scenes much more enjoyable, as they emphasize why he deserves to lead the Avengers. The film features two versions of Captain America’s uniform: the original and a new design that is slightly less campy. The new design removed the abdominal stars and stripes and is primarily blue with red on the sides. The new costume makes Rogers seem more like a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent than a freshly thawed WWII superhero. There are three characters from Captain America: The First Avenger who make surprise appearances. One is the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), who is revealed to be a close friend of Rogers. Fans of the series or the comics are likely to guess the identity of the Winter Soldier, but, speaking as a comic book fan, knowing his identity doesn’t take away from the experi-
ence; it actually adds to it. Overall this film is a wellexecuted espionage movie. The directors avoided an all-too-common mistake in spy-type films: adding unnecessary convoluted twists and turns just for the sake of being difficult. The film does feature a few surprises, but each one adds to the story instead of distracting fans. Fans of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been receiving a few hints about the nature of this film, and, guessing from the events that take place in the movie, the show is about to be drastically altered. This film adds much-needed character work for Captain America, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and even Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Each character’s actions and his or her interactions show a little bit more of his or her personality than any of the previous films. Considering that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the ninth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, moviegoers should strongly consider watching the other films beforehand. While the audience does not need an extensive knowledge of the shared universe or the original comics, the other films provide the context. Watch this film as the directors intended: after watching all the others. Those not too interested in Marvel should at least watch the first Captain America film and The Avengers before watching this film. Every aspect of the movie
is wonderfully executed. The cinematography is spot on, and the movement and motion of each scene flows f lawlessly. The script is a well-written adaptation of the source material that makes the character interactions seem fresh and realistic. Though this is a comic-book movie, the story remains grounded and relatively simple. All of these elements make Captain America: The Winter Soldier the best installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. SOURCE: WIKIMEDIACOMMONS

Q&A with Neil deGrasse Tyson THE ASTROPHYSICIST TALKS ABOUT NASA AND THE SOCIAL IMPACT OF COSMOS Ravi Chittilla Assistant Editor
When astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson visited N.C. State Thursday, he sat down with the Technician as well as representatives from other campus media and The News & Observer. Due to space constraints, the questions and answers have been edited for length. Here’s some of what Tyson said:
Q We live in wonderful times for science communication, in part because of YouTube and TED and shows like yours. You’re atop that tidal wave right now. Where do you think it’s heading?
A A: I’m providing ways for people to reveal their inner interest in science and in that now-tested world, there are 111 other ways that you can have people reveal that create a wave. Because they come to those YouTube channels, and they watch the science talks on TED, and they make The Big Bang Theory the number one show on television, and Fox says, we want to put a science documentary on our channel, and not relegate us to the science ghetto. The science programming channels are where people who already
know they’re interested in science tune in. If you’re trying to spread science, that’s not the way to do it. I think had Cosmos landed 10 years ago it would not have been on network television. Because the climate, the soil would not have been tilled sufficiently for it to have landed in prime time, on a major network, on a Sunday night when everyone is home, on Fox no less. I’d like to think, however delusional, that this movement is irreversible. Because when it manifests, it will manifest as a stronger nation economically as well as politically. We are flexing our muscles, saying Russia, we’re not going to deal with you anymore because you did bad things in the Ukraine. Did Russia f linch? Why not? Because it doesn’t matter if we boycott Russia. So we’re losing our influence in the world. Meanwhile we still need their spaceship to get to the space station.
Q I once heard one prominent scientist say that if you want solutions from outside the box, you need scientists who don’t all come from the same backgrounds. What can be done to grab the imaginations of more minority kids with science?
“That’s all you need to do. That solves everything.” Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium
A I have one observation, however. If you come from a disadvantaged background, however we define that in America, and let’s say you’re the first to go to college (from your family), you’re not thinking that in this, a capitalist democracy, you’re going to major in something that has the intellectual luxury of just solving cosmic problems. You’re going to take a major that has clear and distinct correspondence with the acquisition of wealth. So you’re going to become a lawyer or doctor or a business person. If you look at for example, the majors of first-generation immigrants, it’s not the ex-
otic majors they’re in. It’s the standard professions that assure employment when they get out. It could be nursing, whatever. Now, when you talk about something like aerospace engineering, I don’t know any unemployed aerospace engineers, but it’s a less traditional path to wealth than anything I just listed. I would hypothesize that it would take a second or third generation in that family after the acquisition of wealth for someone to feel comfortable enough about where that next meal is going to come from and say, ‘I will major in botany or zoology or entomology,’ or something that’s just the luxury of creative thought.
Q If you could call the shots on science education in the United States, what would you do?
A I would double or triple NASA’s budget. That’s all you need to do. That solves everything. Then NASA can have a budget to go somewhere, a budget to advance the space frontier. And any time you advance a frontier, you have to patent new machines, tools, and methods, and these discoveries then make headlines. Because any dis-
covery on a frontier is headline-worthy, typically. And people read the headlines and go, ‘Wow, I didn’t know that was on the far side of the moon.’ Or, ‘Oh, we’re going to mine asteroids for the first time. So now I need mining engineers. And maybe I need some lawyers. What are the legal ramifications of mining an asteroid?’ Everyone ends up being a participant, and the frontier of space is so cool that now people want to specialize in STEM fields, and you don’t need programs to get them interested. I derive this from the fact that when Sputnik was launched it put a flame under our rear ends in 1957, and people were climbing over each other to take science and engineering classes. Once you do that, by my read of history and of human conduct and the impact of the space program on the American economy, I know of no more effective force to be brought to bear on that problem than a fully-funded NASA.
Q How can science literacy change the minds of people who reject scientific evidence out of hand?
A The people who reject scientific evidence out of hand
don’t know how science works, so I’m not into beating them over the head for not knowing, I’m faulting an educational system that hasn’t taught them what science is. And for me, science literacy isn’t the recitation of what the DNA molecule is or how an internal combustion engine works or what the Big Bang Theory is. Science literacy is knowing how to ask questions. That’s really all it is. So if you have these two crystals and you say, ‘If I rub these together they will heal you,’ some people think, ‘Well, that’s bogus, get it out of my face.’ That’s just as blind as accepting it outright. Each one of those options requires no thought. Thinking is harder than not thinking. So you say, ‘Well, what are these crystals made of? Why does rubbing them make a difference? Where are they from? What ailments are they said to heal? Can you show me where they have healed? What do they cost? What is the mechanism by which they heal?’ By the time you’re done, the person has run away in tears. Because they wouldn’t, in that case, have the answers to every one of the questions. You won that encounter because even without knowing the laws of physics, you knew how to inquire.

One last thought about the Genocide Awareness Project
n Fr id ay, s t a f f columnist Nicky Vaught wrote about the Genocide Awareness Project, a display brought to college campuses across the country intended to provoke discussion about the morality Justine of abortion, Schnitzler Staff Columnist while utilizi ng v iolent imagery of supposed actual abortions juxtaposed with images of recognized genocides, such as the Holocaust and Rwandan clash between the Hutus and Tutsis. The display was met with a considerable amount of backlash, including a counter-protest staged in front of the display, with students from all walks of life and various segments of the political spectrum ensuring a presence against such triggering photographs was established. You, as a reader, may believe this topic has been rehashed enough, and wonder why I would bother to write yet another piece about something the student body collectively would like to move forward from. By and large, Vaught’s column articulated many of the sentiments of the counter-protestors. However, I found one paragraph alarming enough to merit a follow-up column: “Some may wonder why I, a man, am writing this column. Shouldn’t it be a woman? Yes, it should. But when dealing with anti-abortion rights, it’s not uncommon that a woman’s point of view might go dismissed. This was exemplified Wednesday when one of the demonstrators
walked away from my female friend mid-conversation, saying to a female demonstrator, ‘You deal with her.’ So take this as me utilizing my privileged voice as a white male for the greater good.” Vaught is completely right in saying that a woman’s point of view is often overlooked, if not outright dismissed, but acknowledging a woman should be writing a column, then going forward with writing one in her place, under a banner of misguided feminism “for the greater good” is just as harmful. I don’t think Vaught intended for his column to be seen as derogatory to the very components of women’s rights activism he is supporting—especially the pro-choice cause, which centers around the idea that no person, male or female, can make a decision for a woman about her body. But it is important to recognize and acknowledge when missteps occur, and remember to cede the bulk of the conversation to directly affected parties when the time calls for it. I can’t claim to speak for feminism about the whole, or the pro-choice cause, or even the entirety of the counter-protest. I can, however, as a woman, speak up for the way the conversation should be swaying. Vaught is correct—there is a war on women, and apathy is not allowed and should not be tolerated. We just have to make sure women are given the loudest voice. That doesn’t mean men shouldn’t be involved in the conversation. Many men stood with us in counter-protest last week on the Brickyard, first and foremost to express distaste for
the methodology of the GAP display—the primary goal of the counter-protest. Close behind was support for a woman’s right to choose whether or not to carry a pregnancy to term, a life experience men will biologically never have. It is simply important for men to recognize their own privilege within society, including having greater opportunity to have their voices heard, and hand the microphone over to women, so to speak. At the end of the day, it is going to fall on all of us—women and men, as voters—to ensure that reproductive rights remain a priority in this country, and abortion remains safe and legal in the United States. According to the Guttmacher Institute, in North Carolina, recent legislation has placed restriction on women seeking abortions including, “A woman must receive state-directed counseling that includes information designed to discourage her from having an abortion and then wait 24 hours before the procedure is provided.” These kinds of laws, intended to scare women and shame them into choosing differently, are simply not okay. As a voting public, we must remain vigilant of and engaged in the political process, while allowing women, those directly affected by abortion laws, to take center stage in the discussion.

IN YOUR WORDS
Everything that went wrong with Mozilla last week
The structure of Mozilla as an organization is utterly unique. The closest that any other organization comes to is Wikipedia. The argument that GLBT employees and corporate partners should be concerned that Eich is at the helm is invalid. Even if Eich’s own best decision-making is biased, the structure of the organization is such that he holds no power to affect a change without passing through a ton of other checks. The decision-making is distributed and authority is nodal, not central. Free opinion allows everyone to have a voice if it goes against popular judgment. Coercing a man to step down from his work is not democracy. It is certainly not a way to win a policy argument. Mozilla has specific policies regarding how to treat issues that arise out of differences in personal opinions and the inclusiveness of the community. If the personal opinions of any member of the Mozilla community are in conflict with the community’s principles, then the member must make the distinction utterly clear and not associate Mozilla with his or her personal opinion. If this is followed, then the rest of the community is to treat the opinion as a private matter and not a Mozilla issue. Eich’s donation was first unearthed in 2011. Eich was then the Chief Technology Officer for Mozilla. Mozilla and Eich himself had followed the above policy. The Mozilla community had then dealt with this matter, both externally and internally. Hence, the media firestorm that was created this time was unnecessary and the accusations made are thereby invalid. Eich contributed to Mozilla’s vision. Of all, he understands the mission and its execution. To propose that his personal opinion about equality of marriage will result into a conflict of interest for Mozilla is to accuse him of not being able to differentiate between his personal views and the principles of an organization he founded and helped build for 11 years. Mozilla prides itself on being a meritocratic organization. To undervalue Eich’s merit over his personal beliefs betrays a deeper chasm in the community. The ad hominem culture played out its part cunningly here. However flawed or otherwise his personal beliefs, Eich did not deserve to be shunted out of an organization he helped build, a cause he helped fight for.

“How do you feel about the Genocide Awareness Project in the Brickyard? Do you think it was effective?””
"I wasn't aware of it. I don't think it is effective as people will not change their minds. They will preach to people that already agree with them, but people that disagree will not pay attention. I don't think it benefits their cause."
“I don’t know if it made people change their existing views on the issue, but if anyone was unsure of their opinion on abortion, the displays made them choose a side one way or another.”

State ends conference slump vs. Tigers Luke Nadkarni Assistant Sports Editor
Lewis chooses Butler Former N.C. State sophomore guard Tyler Lewis announced on Friday that he will be transferring to Butler for the 2015 season. The Statesville native said he considered other schools, including UNC-Charlotte and Xavier, before selecting to play for the Bulldogs. Lewis averaged 4.4 points and a team-high 3.8 assists per game for the Wolfpack in the 2014 season. SOURCE: ESPN
Taylor breaks N.C. State outdoor shot put record In the final day of the Tiger Track Classic in Auburn, Ala., redshirt junior Tremanisha Taylor broke her own school record in outdoor shot put with a throw of 55’ 3”. Taylor has set outdoor records on back-to-back weeks, as the Henderson, N.C. native set the outdoor discus record on March 29 at the Raleigh Relays. Taylor finished 12th nationally in the indoor shot put competition earlier in the season and is a two-time All-American in the outdoor event. SOURCE: N.C. STATE ATHLETICS
Women’s golf swings an upset over Northwestern The No. 22 Wolfpack women’s golf team pulled off an upset over No. 16 Northwestern – the top-seeded team in the tournament – by a score of 3-2 on Saturday at the Liz Murphey Classic in Athens, Ga. Junior Lindsay McGetrick, senior Brittany Marchand and junior Augusta James each defeated their opponents by one stroke to seal the victory for the Pack.
The N.C. State baseball team split a pair of games with Clemson at Doug Kingsmore Stadium during the weekend, snapping a 10-game conference losing streak. The Wolfpack’s last victory over an ACC opponent came on March 9 against Notre Dame. The Pack (18-12 overall, 4-10 ACC) started off the series on the wrong foot Saturday afternoon, as Clemson used a key eighth inning and strong pitching from sophomore left-hander Matthew Crownover to take the first game by a score of 6-1. Crownover tossed eight innings, allowing just three hits and one run while striking out seven State batters. With the win, the Ringgold, Ga. native improved his record to 6-2 on the season. No Wolfpack batter had more than one hit on the afternoon. Freshman infielder Kyle Cavanaugh provided the lone RBI for N.C. State in the top of the fourth when he singled to left field to score junior outfielder Bubby Riley, who had been hit by a pitch to begin the inning. Riley’s run made it 1-0 in State’s favor, but from there it was all Clemson. “It’s hard to play with enthusiasm when you’re on a skid,” Wolfpack manager Elliott Avent said. “I guess you could say we were snakebitten.” The Tigers struck back in the

bottom half of the fourth inning . Freshman catcher Chris Okey and senior infielder Steve Wilkerson brought in a pair of runs on two RBI singles, giving their team a lead that it would not relinquish. Clemson increased its lead to 3-1 two innings later, but the day belonged to Crownover, who didn’t allow another hit until he was replaced in the ninth by senior righty Matt Campbell, who held the Wolfpack scoreless despite allowing two hits. Wolfpack junior lefty Carlos Rodon went the distance despite the loss, fanning five Tigers to bring
himself within seven strikeouts of Terry Harvey’s school record of 386 set from 1992-95. However, Clemson roughed up Rodon for six runs on 11 hits and put the final nail in State’s coffin with three runs in the bottom of the eighth aided by a pair of Wolfpack errors. Rodon’s record dropped to 2-5 on the season. State bounced back in the second game Sunday afternoon, using a huge ninth inning to pull away from the Tigers and salvage a split of the first two games of the series. “We made a commitment to play better today,” Avent said. “It feels good to finally get a win.”
The Wolfpack took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when junior shortstop Trea Turner singled, stole second and then scored all the way from second on a passed ball. The Tigers scored two runs in the bottom half on an error by junior second baseman Logan Ratledge and a single by Wilkerson. Senior lefty D.J. Thomas relieved senior righty Andrew Woeck, who started the game, in the second inning and pitched masterfully, scattering three hits over 5.2 innings with two strikeouts and no walks.

N.C. State Gymnastics ended its season with a trip to NCAA Regionals in Athens, Ga. on Saturday. The Wolfpack finished fifth out of the six team field, totaling a score of 194.550, marking the first time that the Pack has scored less than 195.000 since Feb. 8. For six seniors on the Wolfpack squad, Saturday marked the last time they would put on a State uniform. Head coach Mark Stevenson said that he would miss his seniors’ contributions. “They’ve been phenomenal, one of the best senior classes we’ve ever had,” Stevenson said. “They’ve just done a terrific job for us, and they did it again [Saturday]. We’re going to miss them a lot.” The Pack started off on the wrong foot, beginning the meet with a rough showing on the uneven bars. Both of the first two competitors fell on their routine, receiving score of 8.900 and 9.100. Sophomore Brittni Watkins and senior Stephanie Ouellette gave the Pack some momentum by each earning a score of 9.800. However, State could only manage to put together a total of 48.150 for the first event, putting the team in dead last heading to the second station. “I thought we had a great warmup, and we went into the meet and didn’t compete on the same level,” Stevenson said. The Pack improved slightly on the beam, earning a score of 48.425. However, the mark was lacking compared to the team’s season average of 48.813. Junior Lane Jarred led the way with a score of 9.800, while Watkins and Ouellette both had slip-ups that cost them dearly in the all-around competition. “We didn’t do bad beam, but it wasn’t as crisp [as it needed to be],” Stevenson said. Watkins and Ouellette finished the all-around competition tied for fifth with scores of 39.000. The two finished .175 points out of second place, which would have given them an automatic bid for Nationals. Michigan’s freshman Nicole Artz took home gold with the top score of the night: 39.325.

Senior Stephanie Ouellette executes a front flip on the balance beam Jan. 17. in Reynolds Coliseum. The Wolfpack took second place with 195.650 points to the University of Michigan, beating UNC-CH by 3.2 points. Ouellette scored a 9.850 on the balance beam.
State really started to pick up the slack in the third event, as the team tied its second-best mark in the floor exercise with a score of 49.125. Five of the Pack gymnasts recorded scores more than 9.800, with Watkins and Jarred leading the way. Sophomore Aubrey Hine broke her personal best with a score of 9.825. The Pack closed with a strong performance on a good note, as the team notched a 48.850 on vault to end the meet. Once again Watkins led the way with 9.850, while Ouellette and fellow senior Diahanna Ham both recorded scores of 9.775. Of the six teams, only the top two would advance to the NCAA Championships in Birmingham, Ala. on April 18. No. 7 Michigan and No. 6 Georgia took the top two spots on Saturday, posting scores of 196.750 and 196.375 respectively.
The Pack ended its 2013 campaign with a similar result, recording a fifth-place in the NCAA Regionals at Ohio State. Though the Pack has qualified for Regionals every year since 2003, the team has failed to advance to the next stage. This season, injuries took quite a toll on the Pack, as the team lost key gymnasts throughout the season, such as senior Ellen Marion and 2013 EAGL Rookie of the Year sophomore Michaela Woodford. Stevenson said that next year, with a healthy team, he has high hopes for a strong season. “Brittni is back, [Woodford] is back, and Lane is back, so that’ll be a good base for us,” Stevenson said. “Hopefully in the scheme of all of those people, we’ll find those replacements with the consistency that our seniors have had.”
The N.C. State men’s tennis team (14-7 overall, 3-5 ACC) pulled off a 4-3 upset over the No. 12 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (14-8, 4-4) on Sunday afternoon at Dail Outdoor Tennis Stadium. Doubles play began with an 8-3 win for the Wolfpack’s No. 1 team of freshman Ian Dempster and junior Robbie Mudge, ranked No. 50 in the nation. The pair put on an overpowering performance against Notre Dame’s senior Greg Andrews and sophomore Alex Lawson, who were ranked No. 7 in the nation. State’s No. 2 team of senior Sean Weber and freshman Nick Horton, ranked No. 36 nationally, lost to freshman Josh Hagar and senior Billy Pecor. Despite strong play from both Weber and Horton the duo were edged in an 8-6 tiebreaker. The Pack’s No. 3 team, consisting of junior Austin Powell and sophomore Simon Norenius, clinched the doubles point in an 8-4 tiebreaker against freshman Eddy Covalschi and sophomore Quentin Monaghan. The doubles point win was a key factor that contributed to the N.C. State victory on Sunday. In singles, No. 6 Horton was first to come off the court, achieving a 6-4, 6-4 victory over sophomore Eric Schnurrenberger. However, Notre Dame quickly answered, as No. 5 Covalschi, playing angry after his doubles loss, beat Weber 6-1, 6-4 and gave the Fighting Irish their first point for the day. The next player off the court for N.C. State was No. 4 Nore-

Junior righty Eric Peterson took over for the final two innings and gave up two runs, but by that point the Pack had the game in hand. “The team was playing great defense behind me,” Thomas said. “Clemson hit it hard, but our fielders were always there. That helped me stay in the groove.” State’s offense finally woke up in the sixth when freshman third baseman Andrew Knizner blasted a solo homer to left with two outs, his fourth of the season. The Pack jumped on top one inning later, chasing Clemson sophomore lefty Zack Erwin from the game. Erwin gave up two runs on seven hits while striking out seven during 6.2 innings. He was relieved by freshman righty Drew Moyer, who gave up an RBI single to Turner to make it 3-2. The Pack erased all doubt with regards to the result in the top of the ninth, exploding for six runs. Junior center fielder Jake Fincher highlighted the burst with a tworun triple. Fincher also made it home when the Clemson third baseman was unable to field to third. “We took advantage of every opportunity we were given,” Avent said. “We had some guys with great at-bats.” The Wolfpack and Tigers will round out the series Monday night at 7 p.m.
nius, who put up a fight against Hagar and came out with the win, 6-4, 7-5. The Pack’s No. 3 sophomore Thomas Weigel was next to finish. Weigel lost both sets 6-4, 6-4 to Notre Dame senior Ryan Bandy. With a score of 3-2, the two Wolfpack singles players remaining were locked in battle, as both matches went into three sets. No. 1 Powell, ranked No. 47 in the nation, faced off against Andrews, ranked No. 29 nationally. The pair went toe-to-toe and matched each other’s every effort. The match continually shifted momentum as Andrews won the first set 6-4. Powell rebounded and beat out his opponent in the second, 6-3. Andrews was not willing to lose the match. The Fighting Irish senior drilled the ball wherever he wanted to in the third set and overwhelmed Powell, winning the third set 6-2 and tying the meet 3-3. “They’re good at competing, and they don’t go away,” Pack head coach Jon Choboy said. “We just battled. We matched their competing with our competing.” Members of both teams lined up to surround the court to watch and support their teammates in the showdown between

Junior Robbie Mudge smacks the ball back at his opponent. Robbie defeated Boston College in singles and doubles at the top position with his partner, freshman Ian Dempster at Dail Outdoor Tennis Stadium Friday. Head coach Jon Choboy talked about the team having to battle the wind, “We had a couple of different teams out there, but I thought they did a good job of getting through it.”
Mudge and Monaghan; a win by either team would result in the overall victory of the meet. Though Mudge won the first set 6-4, Monoghan echoed Mudge’s effort and took the second set 6-4. The match points won throughout the day winded down to the final set. “A lot was going on in my head,” Mudge said. “When you start thinking about the whole match or everybody in the stands, that’s when
the match can slip away but I wasn’t going to let that happen today.” Mudge grabbed an early lead of 5-2 in the set, but Monaghan countered in desperation and won two games in a row. Despite Monaghan’s momentum shift, Mudge remained calm following and concentrated on hitting accurate shots to the corners that gassed his opponent. Mudge took the final game, and led his to its second win over a top-15 oppo-
nent this season. “Rob Munch came up huge for us today,” Choboy said. “He did exactly what he had to do: he stepped up and took points. It’s the only way you’re going win that match.” The Wolfpack looks to accomplish another upset, as the team will travel to Charlottesville, Va. Friday to take on the No. 4 Virginia Cavaliers.
