The 2006 Raleigh Charter team won the PACE NSC with a lineup of Chris Hoersting, Katie Huddleston, Will Schultz, and Andrew Zonderman. They rallied from a 5-2 prelim performance to go 4-1 in the playoff bracket, then won two rematches of previous losses, against State College A in the semifinals and Richard Montgomery A in the finals, to take the title. According to the post-tournament discussion, this was the only North Carolina team ever to win a national championship.

This was the third time, after 1999 State College and 2002 Richard Montgomery, that a team won the PACE NSC without attending the NAQT HSNCT in the same year, thus confounding efforts to determine a consensus national champion. As of 2020 it also marked the final time that either the HSNCT or NSC was won by a team that did not attend the other tournament in the same year.
