The Wolfpack baseball team beat Georgia on Saturday10-6 and can punch their ticket to their first College World Series in 40 years with a win in Athens on Sunday!!
We cannot over-emphasize the significance of today’s opportunity is for the entire NC State Athletics Department.
Since Lee Fowler became Athletics Director at NC State, Virginia – whose overall athletics program ranks near the top of the ACC with extremely strong, broad athletic success – and NC State are the only athletics programs in the ACC to have failed to participate in at least a Frozen Four, a College World Series, a BCS Bowl, or a National Basketball Championship game.
^THIS will (FINALLY) change with a win today and would also serve to position State for a chance to advance to the National Championship series. Since Fowler’s arrival in Raleigh, NC State is the only pre-expansion Atlantic Coast Conference school who has not won a National Championship in any sport. Virginia Tech, who joined the ACC with expansion in 2004/2005 is the only other ACC school to fail to win a National Championship.
GOOD LUCK BOYS!!!
