The #4 ranked NC State women's tennis team started the ACC regular season off right, beating #32 ranked Notre Dame 4-3.

The win was also the 100th for coach Simon Earnshaw.

It's been a remarkable situation for many NC State teams being nationally ranked, both swimming teams are in the top ten, wrestling is in the top ten, women's basketball is in the top ten, women's cross country finished ranked 5th nationally, and so are the men's and women's tennis teams ranked in the top ten. One can add the rifle team, baseball, and in their respective national rankings. We only have 21 teams in our athletic department, and I just listed seven in the top ten, and another two highly ranked just outside the top ten.
