- Baseball and Softball both off to 1-2 starts...Not too surprised about baseball, but didn't see that coming for the ladies. Ouch.
- Very encouraged about our starting pitching from the weekend. I can certainly see why Stites and Zastryzny were picked for Fri and Sat. Stites did not seem to be real overpowering (high 80's?) but looked fine. And Rob Z has a very lively fastball and a nice breaking slider. Had trouble controlling his off speed pitch but good grief, he's a freshman pitching his first game. And Hardoin did not give up a hit til the 4th or 5th inning.
North Carolina scored 11 runs in a key three-inning stretch Sunday afternoon to register an 11-3 win over Mizzou in the Tigers' final game of the USC Tournament at Dedeaux Field.

As hinted at in yesterday’s entry, this may not be a rebuilding season at all in Chapel Hill. These guys appear to be for REAL, man. The Heels finished up their West coast trek with two more wins today – an 11-3 decision over Missouri and an 11-7 win at USC – to go unbeaten in four games against four pretty good teams. The biggest win was on Saturday as they took down highly-regarded Cal State Fullerton 4-3 in 11 innings at Goodwin Field. Strong work Heels
