    Manzano Earns ACC Postgraduate Scholarship

    RALEIGH, N.C. – NC State student-athletes Austin Hampton, Romulo Manzano and Allison Presnell have each been awarded ACC Postgraduate Scholarships, as announced by conference commissioner John Swofford. In the past 15 years, Wolfpack student-athletes lead the ACC in the number of ACC Postgraduate Scholarships award recipients.

    Manzano led NC State men’s soccer to a 22-16-3 record over the past three seasons, which included 39 starts.  Manzano also guided the Wolfpack to 14 shutouts and appearances to the finals of the 2009 ACC Championship and the second round of the NCAA championship.  A Dean's List student majoring in computer science, Romulo was named both a Caterpillar Scholar-Athlete award winner and to the ACC Honor Roll in 2008.  Manzano currently plans to attend NC State for graduate school and pursue his Master's in computer science. Manzano, a computer science major, hails from Caracas, Venezuela.

    Hampton, a former Wolfpack diver, is a Caterpillar Scholar-Athlete and three-time selection to the ACC All-Academic Men's Swimming & Diving Team.  The biomedical engineering major will return to NC State in the fall to pursue a graduate degree in biomedical engineering with a concentration in biomechanics.  Hampton, a native of St. Petersburg, Fla., is the corresponding secretary to the Tau beta Pi Engineering Honor Society, and holds school records in the three-meter dive and three-meter championship dive.

    Presnell was a National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Southeast Region Team selection in 2007 and was selected to the same team by Louisville Slugger in 2008.  A biomedical engineering major, Presnell was selected to the ACC All-Academic Softball Team in each of her first three seasons, and is a member of several health-related clubs on the NC State campus.  The Harrisburg, N.C., native will pursue her graduate degree in pharmacy at either Maryland or North Carolina, and ultimately will go for a Doctorate in Pharmacy and a residency in oncology.

    Hampton, Manzano and Presnell will be honored on April 14th, 2010 at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, N.C. at a luncheon hosted by the Nat Greene Kiwanis Club.
