NC State unveils 1st sports hall of fame class


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Basketball coaches Jim Valvano, Everett Case and Kay Yow join star player David Thompson as part of the inaugural class of the North Carolina State Athletics Hall of Fame.

Athletic director Debbie Yow announced the 10-person class Tuesday.

Joining those four are women's basketball player Genia Beasley; football players Ted Brown, Roman Gabriel and Jim Richter; men's soccer player Tab Ramos; and women's runner Julie Shea.

Case won a men's program-record 377 games while coaching from 1946-64. Thompson led the Wolfpack to their first NCAA tournament title in 1974 and Valvano coached them to their second in 1983.

Kay Yow had a school-record 680 wins, coached the U.S. to Olympic gold at the 1988 Seoul Games and led an inspirational fight against breast cancer.
