TEMPE, Ariz. – The NC State men’s tennis team secured its first top-25 finish since the 2007 season as it was ranked No. 23 in the final Oracle/ITA Team Rankings of the 2018-19 season.

The final ranking marks the Wolfpack’s best national finish since it was tabbed No. 19 to end the 2007 campaign. NC State is one of four ACC squads to be featured in the top 25 at the conclusion of the 2019 dual match season.

NC State ended the year with a 19-11 record as it amassed the most single-season victories since the 2012 campaign when it picked up 20 wins on the year. After its second-straight selection to the NCAA Championships, NC State advanced to the second round of the national tournament for just the fourth time in program history and the first time since 2014.

The NCAA Championships wrapped up a historic 2019 campaign for the Wolfpack.

In just its fourth contest of the regular season, NC State upset 12th-ranked Georgia at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend for its highest-ranked win under the leadership of second-year head coach Kyle Spencer.

The Pack went on to take down a total of seven opponents that were nationally ranked at the time of competition during the 2019 campaign. Twelve of NC State’s wins came against opponents that were featured in the season-ending top 75.

NC State posted an 8-4 record during regular-season conference play, marking the most league wins in a single season in program history. The squad went on to make history as the program’s first-ever team to advance to the ACC Championship semifinals.

The Wolfpack reentered the top 25 on March 26 and remained there for the final six rankings of the regular season before ending its year at 23rd.

The final singles and doubles standings of the 2019 spring season will be announced next Wednesday, May 29. Stay tuned for a full look back at the team’s historic 2018-19 campaign.

Published

on

Recently Money Magazine ranked the best colleges in America for the money heading into the 2019-20 school year, public and private, and NC State is ranked 40th. Behind Duke, they are the ranked as the 2nd best school in North Carolina, and the #1 Public School.

Going to college shouldn’t mean a lifetime of debt. To find the schools that successfully combine quality and affordability, MONEY weighed more than 19,000 data points, including tuition fees, family borrowing, and career earnings. Explore our list, then build your own. (Money)

Here’s what they had to say about North Carolina State University:

North Carolina State University is a school with deep-rooted tradition and local pride. In fact, many current students have parents and grandparents who are NC State alumni. Probably best known for its agricultural science program, as well as its science research majors, NC State offers its 34,000 students some 300 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Take your pick from animal science, extension education, forest management, meteorology, poultry science, textile engineering, and more. With its location in Raleigh, there’s always plenty to do, both on campus and off. Hundreds of student clubs are constantly recruiting on the Brickyard, State’s central quad, and Greek parties run late into the night. But nothing brings the community together as much as cheering for NC State’s Division I sports teams, embroiled in a century-old rivalry with nearby UNC. Students and professors go all out, dressing in red, roasting pigs at tailgating sessions, and pitching tents in parking lots before games. When it’s time to study, the Learning Commons offers a quiet escape. Undergrads say that professors are attentive and almost always available. The university has a solid 79% graduation rate, which is slightly higher than would be expected based on the academic preparation and economic background of NC State Raleigh’s students, according to MONEY’s calculations. In their first three years after graduating, alumni tend to earn an average salary of $55,800, according to PayScale. (Money)

Published

on

Yahoo did a good job compiling some data to figure out which Power 5 schools have been the best over the past 5 years. They calculated each teams average finish in the Director’s Cup over a 5-year span, and then ranked them accordingly.

NC State ranked 26th.

Here’s what they had to say about the Wolfpack:

Best sport: men’s swimming. Trajectory: down. The Wolfpack were a slight victim of their 2018 success, sliding back 11 spots from a Top 15 year. N.C. State did well in a number of fall and winter sports, but once again had their greatest success in the pool. The women finished seventh in the NCAA championships and the men were fourth. It was the fourth straight fourth-place finish for the men’s program.
