The Wolfpack finished the meet by winning 10 of the 21 events, including four of the five relays. In total, Wolfpack swimmers combined to win 22 medals.
“These guys worked so hard for this and we saw all this support from our alumni, our families and friends this week,” said NC State coach Braden Holloway. “They were out here since Wednesday knowing we had a chance to bring it back [to Raleigh].
“We knew it would be a tough fight with a lot of great teams here and we battled through a bit of an uphill battle out of the gates. It’s a good group of guys and hats off to our staff for putting it together.”
NC State did its biggest damage in the freestyle, winning all five individual events and the three freestyle relays. With the eight golds, they became the first team to sweep freestyle since Virginia in 2002.
