114 The History of Wake Forest
NCAA Cross Country Championship in Annapolis, Maryland, under Head Coach
John Goodridge. They also won the 1989 ACC championship and the NCAA Dis-
trict III title. Ben Schoonover and Jon Hume were named Wake Forest’s first All-­
Americans in men’s cross country.
The men’s soccer team under Walt Chyzowych won the ACC championship
over Duke in a 5–3 shootout, the first ACC championship in the team’s ten-year his-
tory. In another impressive athletic achievement, the field hockey team won the Deep
South Association tournament under Coach Barbara Bradley. It was the third time
in four years that the Deacons won the title. With the opening of a new golf complex
on campus near the baseball stadium, Jack Lewis (’70) was appointed assistant coach
for the men’s golf team.
To keep the quality of the Wake Forest athletics program high, President Hearn
instructed Gene Hooks and Doug Bland on April 25, 1990, to prepare academic
progress reports on student-athletes by sport each semester. Hearn also established
an Athletic Oversight Committee, chaired by John Anderson and composed of Bill
Joyner, Sandra Connor, Ed Wilson, and Gene Hooks. The committee was charged
with ensuring that no recruit was admitted who could not reasonably be expected
to graduate.
C. Hunter Moricle (BS ’36, MD ’37) was honored as the sole surviving founding
father of the Deacon Club on November 10. The A.C. Hunter Moricle Athletic/Aca-
demic Excellence Scholarship Fund was established, and the conference room in the
new Deacon Club offices was named for him and displayed his photograph.
The Arts
The Theater Department produced four Mainstage productions during the 1989–
1990 academic year, none of which had been staged before at Wake Forest. The
season began with The Foreigner, a contemporary comedy by Larry Shue, followed
by Harlequinade and The Browning Version, two one-act plays by Terence Rattigan
