BOONE, N.C. – Appalachian State University men's track and field will compete in its first home meet of the season when it hosts East Carolina and Western Carolina in the annual Beaches vs. Mountains Meet on Saturday at Kidd Brewer Stadium.

UNC Wilmington, which was scheduled to compete in the event alongside ECU for the Beaches, will not attend, thereby eliminating the team scoring system that was to determine the winners on each side.

Instead, athletes from all three schools will compete to grab individual titles at the event, which the Beaches won by a score of 345.5-310.5 a year ago when the meet was held in Wilmington.

Appalachian finished the event with several strong performances, including three top-five finishes from Jared Stalling, who took second in the shot put and fourth in both the discus and hammer throws.

Saturday's events get underway at 12:30 p.m. with the final event of the day scheduled for a 4:30 p.m. start time. Admission to Saturday's meet is FREE for all fans.

In addition to the home meet, the Mountaineers will send five distance runners to this weekend's Raleigh Relays at NC State where four athletes will compete in the 10,000-meter run while Chris Moen will complete in the 5,000-meter event.
