After breaking the Southern Conference and App State record in the 60m hurdles at the SoCon Championships last weekend, sophomore Stanley Broaden will look to lead App and qualify for the NCAA Championships this weekend at the Virginia Tech Meet. Broaden ran a 7.90 in the event which broke Charles Derrickson's record set in 2007.

Senior Jared Stalling will lead the Mountaineers in field events after clinching the shot put title at the SoCon Championships for the second year in a row and claiming the weight throw title. Stalling threw for 15.98m in the shot put and 18.83m in the weight throw. The Greensboro, N.C. native holds the all-time record in the weight throw and ranks third in the shot put.

The Apps will round out the lineup in Virginia as junior Jamal Tiller will participate in the triple jump after garnering the title at the SoCon championships and setting the JDL Fast Track record in the event. Tiller jumped for 15.41m in the event. Tiller currently ranks eighth all-time for the Apps in the triple jump.
