My son is a NCS grad and he pointed out to me that NCS leads


the ACC in the fall Directors cup standings and was #7 nationally.

He said that it is mostly attributable to Debbie Yow not accepting bad records from their HC's. She has put the pressure on and made it known by example that if you do not win you will be gone. One example is soccer where both teams made the NCAA's and certainly NCS has never been a soccer power like many others in the ACC. Wresting and swimming have done really well lately.

NCS has a huge alumni base and a huge local and loyal following in the Triangle. Money and facilities are not an issue at NCS. They probably have the 2nd best FB attendance in the ACC only behind CU. Tennis is an example with an excellent new outdoor stadium. They sill only have 4 indoor courts, but that is enough for practice and it is the main reason for indoor courts in the mid Atlantic area. I have heard that their FB facilities are 2nd best in the ACC and not far behind CU's. Some UVA people seem to belittle NCS's academics, but IMO they are wrong especially in engineering and the sciences. The rest of the school is pretty good as well and certainly the 2nd best school in NC only behind UNC.
