NEW ORLEANS – Stanley Broaden and Nathan Milch, standout stars for Appalachian State University men's track and field, have received all-academic honors from the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA), announced by the USTFCCCA on Thursday.

A total of 570 men from 161 institutions earned USTFCCCA all-academic honors during the 2015-16 track and field season. To qualify for the all-academic team, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.25 and have met at least one of the following athletic standards:

• For the indoor season, a student-athlete must have finished the regular season ranked in the national top 96 for an individual event or ranked in the national top 48 (collective listin) in a relay event on the official POP list provided by TFRRs.org.

• For the outdoor season, a student-athlete must have participated in any round of the NCAA Division I championships (including preliminary rounds).

At the 2016 Sun Belt Championships, Broaden won the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 50.67 and also took second in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.04. Broaden's time in the 400 hurdles was a personal-best and good for second all-time in program history. At the time, Broaden's finish in the 400 hurdles was ninth-best in the NCAA East Region and 16th in the country.

At the NCAA East Region preliminaries in Jacksonville, Fla., Broaden advanced to the quarterfinals of the 400 hurdles with a time of 52.20. He would not be able to advance past the quarterfinals.

Milch took third place in the shot out at the Sun Belt Championships with a personal-best throw of 56-6. That throw placed Milch third on the all-time program list. Milch did not advance at the NCAA East Region prelims.
