Under first-year head coach Shawn Rychcik, the Wolfpack won the school's second ACC title, advanced to an NCAA Regional title game for the first time in school history and broke nearly 40 team and individual school records.
Sophomore pitcher Emily Weiman goes the distance in the longest postseason game in both NC State and Tennessee history. An 11th-inning, run-scoring triple ended the classic pitcher's duel between Weiman and Tennessee's Ellen Renfroe. The Pack played a second game later Saturday night.
The senior left fielder smacked her eighth homer of the season in the bottom of the sixth, leading NC State to its first win ever in the first game of an NCAA Regional, a 2-0 victory over James Madison in the NCAA Knoxville Regional. Sophomore righthander Emily Weiman picked up the complete-game win.
Sophomore pitcher Emily Weiman shut down the Seminoles with a four-hit shutout to win her 31st game of the season. The 2013 ACC Pitcher of the Year was also named the tournament's Most Valuable Player. The Pack will receive the ACC's automatic berth into the NCAA Championship.
Second-seeded NC State will face top-seeded Florida State on Saturday at 6 p.m. for the ACC Softball Championship. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.
