Athletic teams are called the Wolfpack. North Carolina State participates in the NCAA's
Division I-A in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Four of the past five years, NC State’s football coach, Chuck Amato, has lead the Pack to bowl games while the men’s basketball team,
coached by Herb Sendek, advanced to the second round of the 2004 NCAA
Tournament. Women’s basketball coach Kay Yow, a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, has more
than 600 wins to her credit. A new sports arena, the RBC Center, beckons
students, alumni, and area residents to come and root for the Wolfpack.
