9-7-22, Boo Corrigan, NC State AD

Our guest speaker for this meeting will be Boo Corrigan, Director of Athletics at NC State University. Boo Corrigan began his tenure as NC State’s Director of Athletics in April of 2019, and the Wolfpack has enjoyed unprecedented success under his leadership.

Since he arrived in Raleigh after spending eight years as Director of Athletics at West Point, NC State has led the ACC in team championships. The Wolfpack has also posted back-to-back top-25 finishes in the Learfield Directors’ Cup for the first time in school history, recording its second-highest finish ever with a No. 17 mark for the 2021-22 academic year.

Four Wolfpack teams finished in the top five of the national rankings in 2021-22, led by the women’s cross country squad that won the first NCAA title ever by a Wolfpack women’s team and the school’s first national team title in any sport since 1983. In addition, men’s swimming and diving finished fourth nationally, while women’s basketball and women’s swimming and diving finished fifth. In total, 11 teams finished in the top 25 of their sport’s national rankings.

Wolfpack teams brought four ACC titles home to Raleigh in 2021-22. Women’s cross country won their sixth straight league crown, wrestling won a fourth straight and women’s basketball won a third straight. The men’s swimming and diving team won its seventh ACC title in the last eight years. NC State boasted 102 All-Americans and 21 individual conference titles, while five Wolfpack student-athletes won national titles. Academically, 21 of the Wolfpack’s 23 teams posted 3.0 GPAs or higher in both the fall and spring semesters of that academic year.
