INDIANAPOLIS, IND. - NC State earned the top seed in the Raleigh regional, and will be joined by two-seed Vanderbilt, three-seed UNC Wilmington, and four-seed Sacred Heart this weekend.
With Raleigh already named a regional host on Sunday, the Wolfpack awaited the NCAA’s bracket announcement Monday to find out which teams will visit Doak Field at Dail Park.
The Pack (39-17) ended up with a Friday date against Sacred Heart (25-30), and a game against either Vanderbilt (33-26) or UNC Wilmington (38-21) on Saturday.
If NC State advances out of the Raleigh regional, it will take on the winner of the Gainesville regional, either Florida (42-18), Georgia Tech (36-24), Charleston (37-20), or Bethune-Cookman (34-25).
