BOONE, N.C. - Appalachian State University women's track and field will host the first of the three home meets during indoor season on Thursday and Friday at the Holmes Center.

The meet will kick off on Thursday with the weight throw and triple jump beginning at 6 p.m. and will resume on Friday at 1 p.m.

The Mountaineers will host nine other schools in Boone, including Virginia Tech, Western Carolina, USC Upstate, King, Milligan, Brevard, Mars Hill, Lees-McRae and Livingstone.

The women's team will look to improve on their second-place finish at the Southern Conference Indoor Championships during the 2012-13 season.

The Mountaineers return sprinter Breanna Alston, who claimed the 200m dash title and the 400m dash title as she ran a 24.38 in the 200m and a 56.70 in the 400m last season. The Greensboro, N.C. native also earned a third-place finish in the 60m dash, crossing the line at 7.65 and sixth in the long jump.

The team also returns three of the four members of their 4x400m relay team. Taryn Stern, Shelby Howell and Alston placed second in the championships last season.

Cassie Crawford will look to improve on a second-place finish at the championships last season in the pole vault event. Crawford finished with a 37.5m jump.

A successful throws team will also look to lead the Mountaineers as Ana DeLeon found a second-place finish last season in the weight throw and Jasmine Suydam placed third. 

The Apps will return to action on Jan. 17 when they travel to the ETSU Invitational in Johnson City, Tenn.
