Mascots from across the Triangle came out to support the Wolfpack Women during February at a home game against Florida State University. Wool E. Bull, Mr. Taco, the Chick-Fil-A Cow, Muddy the Mudcat and Leo (the RBC Centura) Lion joined NC State’s Mr. and Mrs. Wuf to entertain the crowd and help cheer on the team.
The bench at NC State filled with mascots during half-time of the Wolfpack women’s game against Florida State.

The mascots mixed and mingled with fans and posed for photo ops with some of their most valued admirers. During half-time they showed off their stuff by playing a five-minute basketball game against a group of elementary aged fans. No scoreboard was needed for this game; it was all about having fun. The mascots stole the show and had the fans howling with laughter!

Mascot night was made possible by the efforts of Wolfpack Sports Marketing and its relationship with supportive corporate sponsors. Mascot night was part of a complete series of season long promotions incorporated by Wolfpack Sports Marketing to increase exposure for corporate sponsors and add fun for the fans. It was a crowd favorite and a season highlight and fans are already asking when the large furry friends will be back.
The Wolfpack Women won 71-43 over Florida State. The NC State women have played well this year and fans have witnessed nail-biting excitement at every game. They have won their last three games at home, and six of seven overall. They are ranked third in the ACC and are expected to perform well in the ACC tournament this weekend. Wolfpack Sports Marketing and its corporate sponsors are proud to support Hall of Fame Head Coach Kay Yow and the Wolfpack Women. For more information visit GoPack.com.
