North Carolina Tar Heels
The North Carolina Tar Heels are the athletic teams for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The name Tar Heel is a nickname used to refer to individuals from the state of North Carolina, the Tar Heel State. The campus at Chapel Hill is referred to as the University of North Carolina for the purposes of the National Collegiate Athletic Association.The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was chartered in 1789, and in 1795 it became the first state-supported university in the United States. Since the school fostered the oldest collegiate team in the Carolinas, the school took on the nickname "Carolina," especially in athletics. The Tar Heels are also referred to as North Carolina, UNC, or The Heels.
The mascot of the Tar Heels is Rameses, a Bighorn Ram. It is represented as either a live Dorset sheep with its horns painted Carolina Blue, or as a costumed character performed by a volunteer from the student body, usually an undergraduate student associated with the cheer leading team. Carolina has won 40 NCAA Division I team national championships in seven different sports, ninth all-time, and 51 individual national championships. C.D. Mock, a 1982 Carolina graduate and the first Tar Heels wrestling NCAA Champion (1982), is entering his 11th season as head coach of the University of North Carolina wrestling program. The 2005 and 2006 Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year, Mock was named head coach on Sept. 30, 2002, and assumed the duties of head coach with the retirement of 30-year veteran Bill Lam following the 2002-03 season. C.D. Mock has been achieved two ACC Coach of the Year (2005, 2006) & two ACC Champions (2005, 2006) awards. Though UNC is more known for basketball, the Tar Heel wrestling program has 5 individual NCAA champions: Mock, T.J. Jaworsky, who won 3 back-to-back NCAA title in the 134-pound weight class in 1993-1995, & 1988 NCAA Champion Rob Koll. UNC's best finish during the national championships is 5th in 1982.
