Part two of the three-part series counting down the top 19 NC State sports moments of 2019 includes postseason runs from NC State Icepack, softball, women’s soccer and women’s tennis; a big draft day for some former Pack football players; and a recent ranked win for women’s basketball. 

Over the last three days of the year, Technician’s sports editors will be counting down the top 19 NC State sports moments of 2019. In part one, we have some Pack pros on the move, a stunning week for one of softball’s best and more.

The NC State softball team recently signed seven new additions to its team in what has become a talented 2020 signing class. Signees include shortstop Jayci Chamberlain, pitcher/1B Estelle Czech, infielders Haley Haislip and Kaylee Lambrecht, pitcher Brooklyn Lucero, utility player Laine Marak and utility player Gracie Roberts. 

Reports of rainfall at Dail Softball Stadium and an hour-long delay weren’t enough to slow down the NC State softball team Sunday afternoon, as it took both games in a doubleheader against Wingate by scores of 9-1 and 7-5, respectively. 

The NC State softball team will play host to East Carolina this Saturday as both teams wrap up their fall schedules this weekend. The Wolfpack is 4-0-1 on the season and looks to continue its winning ways before preparing for the spring season. 

NC State will be a little quiet this week on campus as many teams have away games, but softball, men’s soccer and rifle have home games this week. However, the highlight of the week is Primetime with the Pack on Friday night. 

The NC State softball team is set to take on the North Carolina Central Eagles on Saturday, Oct. 12 at Dail Softball Stadium starting at noon. The Pack is coming off two straight wins and has yet to lose a game this fall, going 3-0-1.
