The 2014-2015 academic year was one of the best ever for NC State Athletics, reflected in the 27th place finish in the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup rankings, our highest ranking ever. Way to go student athletes! You’re getting it done in the classroom, in the community, and now on the field of play. A lot of credit should go to AD Debbie Yow too. She has not been shy about her goal to be a Top 25 athletic program since she got here. Well Debbie, we’re not quite there, but kudos to you for pushing our coaches and student athletes to strive for this.
