High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles The athletic teams of
the North Carolina State University, known as the Wolfpack, compete
in 24 intercollegiate varsity sports. NC State is a founding member
of the Atlantic Coast Conference and has won eight national
championships: two NCAA championships, two AIAW championships, and
four titles under other sanctioning bodies. Most NC State fans and
athletes recognize the rivalry with the North Carolina Tar Heels as
their biggest. The primary logo for NC State athletics is a red
block 'S' with an inscribed 'N' and 'C'. The block S has been in
use since 1890 but has seen many alterations through the years. It
became the sole logo for all NC State athletic teams in 2000 and
was modernized to its current design in 2006. NC State athletic
teams are nicknamed the 'Wolfpack' (most women's teams are named
the 'Lady Wolfpack'). The name was adopted in 1922 when a
disgruntled fan described the behavior of the student body at
athletic events as being "like a wolf pack." Prior to the adoption
of the current nickname, NC State athletic teams went by such names
as the Aggies, the Techs, and the Red Terrors.
