NC State Women’s Cross-Country Finish 5th at NCAA’s, Men Finish 26th

Published

on

Yesterday, NC State’s Women’s Cross-Country team finished 5th in the NCAA Championships, and the Men’s team finished 26th.

Last year, the Women’s team finished 13th, but the Top-5 isn’t abnormal for the Pack, finishing there 3 out of the last 5 years.

This was a step back for the Men’s team, finishing 11th in 2018.

Senior Elly Henes finished 10th in the nation, and earned All-American honors for the third time in her career, making her only 1 of 5 women in school history to do so. The last time a member of NC State’s Women’s team earned 3 consecutive All-American honors was in 1982-84 (Connie Jo Robinson).

Junior Ian Shanklin finished 39th, earning the first All-American honors for the Men’s team since 2013.

NC State Women’s Basketball Defensively Smothers Maine 62-34

Published

on

#14 NC State’s Women’s Basketball team improved to 4-0 yesterday, defeating Maine (1-3) 62-34.

It wasn’t the Wolfpack’s best shooting day, but fortunately, their defense was stifling, holding Maine to 24.6% shooting from the field and 34 points on the day.

Sophomore Elissa Cunane had a double-double for the 2nd consecutive game, with 12 points (4-8) and 10 rebounds. The double-double was the 6th of her career.

Freshman Forward Jada Boyd had a career-high 16 rebounds (team high), as well as 3 assists (team high), 3 blocks (team high) and 8 points (4-8).

Senior Guard Aislinn Konig shot 50% from three (3-6), which marks her best performance on the year. Considering the fact that “Ace” started the year in a shooting slump, this was extremely encouraging to see.

 

Redshirt Senior Grace Hunter was held out of this game after tweaking her knee a couple of days ago. They are hopeful she will be able to play against St. Mary’s on Sunday. Hunter is coming off of an ACL surgery, and had 15 points last game.

The Wolfpack will play their first road game of the season on Sunday at St. Mary’s at 5pm.
