RALEIGH, N.C. -- North Carolina State athletic director Debbie Yow knows the work to build a national top-25 sports program is even tougher now with the Wolfpack hovering near the edge of that goal.In fact, Yow said in an interview with The Associated Press, completing the final steps of that climb could be more difficult than it was to reach the schools current position.Were now into an area where there are very good coaches everywhere, programs that are well-resourced, facilities that are excellent, she said. We have to overcome all of that. Weve got to take someones place. And yeah, that is our goal and I said that the day I was hired six years ago. And it still is.N.C. State stood at 89th in the Directors Cup rankings of Division I sports programs when Yow arrived from Maryland in the summer of 2010. It finished at No. 32 in last weeks final standings for the 2015-16 season after posting its best finish at No. 27 the year before.The school has been ahead of the annual schedule laid out in a five-year strategic plan from 2012. The coming season is the target date to reach top-25 status.We put a stake in the ground. Thats how you have to do this, Yow said. You cant be afraid to put a stake in the ground and then go for it . or (you cant) say, `I cant do that because we might not make it, because thats a horrible way to live.When Yow arrived, N.C. State was coming off a season in which one team finished in the top 25 of its national rankings, while the Wolfpack spent about $78,000 annually per student-athlete, according to the schools report to the U.S. Department of Educations gender equity database.That number has grown to about $109,000 in the most recent numbers for 2014-15 to rank near the middle of the Atlantic Coast Conference. And last year, nine programs earned top-25 finishes, with cross country, mens swimming and diving, and womens swimming and diving finishing in the top 10.The highest-profile sports had mixed results. Football made a second straight bowl appearance but fell a win shy of the previous years total. Both basketball programs missed the NCAA Tournament. Baseball was a regional host and a strike away from eliminating eventual College World Series champion Coastal Carolina.Yow -- a former womens basketball coach at Kentucky, Florida and Oral Roberts -- is particularly optimistic about the season ahead for both basketball programs.Hampered by injuries and a shorthanded roster, the mens team missed the NCAAs for the first time in five years under Mark Gottfried but welcomes Scout.coms No. 6-ranked national recruiting class. The womens team had a 20-win season that Yow said without any question deserved an NCAA bid for third-year coach Wes Moore.Were going to sail, Yow said while praising Moores recruiting. Were going to be good. Were going to be fun to watch.That enthusiasm extends to the near-completion of a $35 million revamp to Reynolds Coliseum.Work began in March 2015, displacing womens basketball, volleyball, gymnastics and wrestling into temporary venues. The project included shifting the seating bowl to one end of the nearly 70-year-old campus arena, opening space for new team offices and the Wolfpacks sports walk of fame.Teams are due to return next month. Yow said the campus covered about $15 million to share costs with athletics in a project on schedule and under budget, two of my favorite phrases.I think weve maximized what it will be and can be, she said. Because the walk of fame and history is there, it will become important to football and mens basketball because theyll have big displays there. So well be taking recruits in all sports through there.
