Weaver assumed the duties of directing both programs in the fall of 1995. A 1971 graduate of Appalachian in biology, Weaver returned to ASU in 1979 to assist the men’s program while earning a masters degree in biology. During his three-year tenure as the men’s assistant, he trained two NCAA qualifiers and seven Southern Conference champions.

Since that time, the program, including cross country, indoor track and outdoor track, has produced two NCAA Division I National Champions in the 1500m , nine NCAA Division I all-Americans with 23 all-America performances, 18 NCAA Division I qualifiers, 252 Southern Conference individual- champions, 719 all-conference performances, 27 most outstanding honorees, 40 conference team championships, 25 conference Coachof-the-Year honors, 12 conference Freshman of the Year honors and two Southeast Region Coach of the Year honors. Weaver has also sent 49 athletes to Regional competition.

With 15 athletes returning who earned all-conference accolades in 200809 including six conference championship performances, the Mountaineers will enter the season as heavy favorites to repeat as Southern Conference champions in both the indoor and outdoor seasons. The Apps pulled off a season sweep in 2008-09. Taking home conference championships at the SoCon Indoor Meet in February as well as the outdoor title in April.

2009-10 Appalachian Track And Field


2009-10 Men’s Preview Appalachian State men’s Track and Field heads into the 2009-10 season with sights on adding some addititonal hardware to the trophy case at Owens Field House. With 22 athletes who earned all-Conference accolades in 2008-09, including 11 athletes who took home individual conference titles returning, the Mountaineers appear to be a favorite to capture Southern Conference championships in 2009-10. The Mountaineers nearly pulled off a season sweep of the Southern Conference in 2009. Appalachian took home the Indoor Championship at Clemson in February, but found themselves just a half-point short of champion Western Carolina at the Outdoor Championships. With a roster loaded with experienced veterans and a slew of talented newcomers, Appalachian’s men will look to complete the season sweep for the fourth time this decade. Multis Senior Matt Boruff heads a talented crew of multi-event athletes for the Mountaineers this year. The Raleigh, N.C. native won his second consecutive heptathlon title at the SoCon Indoor Championships last year, in the process scoring 5021 points to shatter his previous ASU and SoCon record. Junior Jake Goodchild is also one of the top returners in the SoCon. As a sophomore, Goodchild notched a third place finish in the heptathlon at the SoCon Indoor Championships, and took home the runner-up spot at the Outdoor Championships while setting a new school record with 6278 points. Throws A deep crop of throwers will be among the Mountaineers’ strengths in the 2009-10 season. Junior Malcolm Styers took home conference titles in the shot put and weight throw at last year’s Indoor Championships. The Newton, N.C. native also claimed runner-up honors in the hammer throw and third place finishes in the shot and discus at the SoCon Outdoor Championships. Junior Tim Daly took home the hammer throw title at the ‘09 SoCon Outdoor Championships and figures to be among the top throwers in the conference this season as well. Junior Jerod Gardner and sophomore Jared Stalling, who each took home all-SoCon honors last year will round out the group of throwers. Gardner won the shot put title and finished second in the discus at last season’s Outdoor Championship, while Stalling notched a third place finish in the shot put at the Indoor Championship.

Jumps/Vaults Sophomore Darius Purcell returns after a dynamic freshman season in the Black and Gold. The Fayetteville, N.C. took home second place in the high jump at both the SoCon Indoor and Outdoor Championships and qualified for the NCAA East Regionals with a jump of 6-11.5. Juniors Ryan Twiford and Mike Wilson are expected to be among the top pole vaulters in the conference in 2010. Twiford took home second place at the SoCon Indoor Championships in ‘09 while Wilson carded a third-place finish at the Outdoor Championships. Sprints Sophomore Dennis Moore headlines a talented group of Mountaineer sprinters in 2009-10. Moore was named SoCon Freshman of the Year in ‘09 after taking home second place in both the 60m dash and 200m dash at the Indoor Championships last year. Moore also anchored a 4x100 relay team that featured returners Philip Bush and DeSean Pearce that placed second at the SoCon Outdoor Championships last year. Senior John Svoboda will also challenge for a conference crown in the 400m after placing second in the event at both the Indoor and Outdoor Championships last year. Distance Perhaps no group on Appalachian’s roster can boast as much depth as Coach Mike Curcio’s distance runners. Sophomore Chris Moen took home a conference title in the mile run at last year’s Indoor Championships. Sophomore Sean Soderman took home first place at USATF Nationals and represented the USA in the Pan-Am Junior Games in Trinidad and Tobago, where he finished second. Classmate Mason Campbell took home third place in 3000m steeple chase at the SoCon Outdoor Championships and competed at the USATF Nationals with Soderman. Cross country standouts Phil Mitchell, Josh Houser and Bud Galloway will also be expected to challenge for all-SoCon honors in 2009-10.

Following a month-long break over the Christmas holidays, the Apps will return to action January 8, traveling to Chapel Hill, N.C. to compete in the UNC Opener before returning home the following weekend to host the Appalachian Open January 15. Appalachian will then hit the road two consecutive weekends, with trips to East Tennessee State for the Niswonger Invitational January 22-23 and Lynchburg, Va. for the Liberty Invitational January 29-30. After a two-week hiatus the Mountaineers will be back in action February 12-13 at the Akron Invitational in Akron, Ohio, prior to returning home to host the Mountaineer Open February 18 in their final tune-up before the SoCon Championships at Clemson February 25-26.

The Southern Conference The Southern Conference, which enters its 89th season of intercollegiate competition in 2009, has become known as one of the nation’s leaders in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has excelled as the premier Division I-AA football conference since earning that classification in 1981. The Conference currently consists of 12 members in five states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first “super conference” with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the three-point shot in college basketball and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes-Scholarship winners have been selected from the conference. The Southern Conference office is located in the Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first class meeting area as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s

historical documents. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Samford Western Carolina and Wofford. The most recent addition, Samford University, joined the Southern Conference in 2008. The SoCon also sponsors two all-sports awards, the Commissioner's Cup for men's programs and the Germann Cup for women's teams. In all, Appalachian has claimed 27 of the last 30 Commissioner's Cups along with each of the first six Germann Cups. In both 2005-06 and 2006-07, the Mountaineers swept the awards, winning both. John Iamarino became the comissioner of the Southern Conference on January 30, 2006. Iamarino came to the SoCon after nine years as commissioner of the Northeastern Conference. He replaced Dr. Danny Morrison, who left his post at the SoCon after four years to become the director of athletics at Texas Christian University.

Commissioner’s and Germann Cups For the fourth-straight year and 29th time in school history, Appalachian State won the Southern Conference Commissioner’s Cup in 2008-09, awarded annually to the conference’s top all-around men’s sports program. On the strength of SoCon titles in football, cross country and indoor track and field, Appalachian compiled 87.5 points in the Commissioner’s Cup standings, easily out-distancing second-place Chattanooga (70.5) ASU men’s teams finished in second place or higher in 5-of-10 sports and sixth or better in 8-of-10, leading to the fourth-highest points total in the 40-year history of the all-sports competition. All 29 of Appalachian’s Commissioner’s Cup titles have come since 1977-78, giving it 29 of the past 32 allsports crowns overall. ASU’s 29 Commissioner’s Cups are by far the most in SoCon history -- William & Mary boasts the second-most at five, followed by East Carolina (four) and Chattanooga, East Tennessee State and Furman (one each). On the women’s side, ASU placed sixth in the Germann cup standings with 64.5 points, just 13.5 points behind champion College of Charleston in the hotly contested women’s race.

Administration Charlie Cobb Director of Athletics NC State, 1990 5th year

In his first four years at Appalachian State University, director of athletics Charlie Cobb has led the department to unparalleled success. The many achievements enjoyed by Appalachian athletics during the first 48 months of Cobb’s tenure include: - Three NCAA Division 1 football national championships -- marking the first time that any program has ever won three consecutive NCAA Division 1 Football Championship Subdivision (FCS -- formerly Division 1-AA) and the first NCAA football titles ever won by a team from the state of North Carolina at any level. - Shattering regular season attendance records at “The Rock” with a school record 28,227 fans per game piling into Kidd Brewer Stadium during the 2008 regular season -- more than 140 percent of the stadium’s ‘08 seating capacity of 16,650. - A 298 percent increase in football season-ticket sales since his arrival in 2005. - Four-consecutive Commissioner’s Cup championships -- recognizing the top overall men’s sports program in the Southern Conference. - Two Germann Cup championships -- recognizing the top overall women’s sports program in the Southern Conference. - 35 percent of the athletics department’s students making the Academic Honor Roll (minimum GPA of 3.25) - Five teams (men’s basketball, women’s cross country, field hockey, women’s indoor and outdoor track and field) earning public recogni tion awards, based on being among the nations’s top 10 percent in their respective sports based on Academic Progress Rate (APR) scores. - The Yosef Club, which provides scholarships for student-athletes, raising nearly $2.5 million in 2008-09 -- reaching the $2 million threshold for the second-straight year and up over $1.8 million from the year before Cobb’s arrival. - Appalachian’s athletics annual budget increasing from $7.5 million in Cobb’s first year to $11 million in 2009-10.

While Cobb is quick to point out the “total team effort” put forth to achieve the many successes that have been enjoyed since he began his tenure as ASU’s director of athletics on July 1, 2005, it is the experience, vision and work-ethic of the 41-year-old Cobb that has steered the Mountaineers to new heights. Prior to his arrival in Boone, Cobb was a member of the athletics department at North Carolina State University from 1998-2005. A four-year football letterwinner at NC State from 1987-90, Cobb served as the Wolfpack’s senior associate athletics director for external operations for the seven years prior to his arrival in Boone. In that role, he oversaw NC State’s marketing, ticket operations, media relations, and student-athlete development operations, as well as serving on the department’s compact strategic planning initiative, gender equity and facilities committees. During his tenure, NC State increased football season-ticket sales by 87 percent and men’s basketball season-ticket sales by 121 percent. The combined ticket revenues accounted for and annual increase of over 86 percent for Wolfpack athletics, generating more than $6 million for the department. In addition, Cobb served as NC State’s administrator for baseball and women’s soccer, tournament manager for the 2004 NCAA men’s basketball first and second rounds at the RBC Center and the chair for the southeast region of the NCAA women’s soccer committee. Cobb graduated with honors with a B.A. in business administration from NC State in 1990. A second-team all-ACC honoree at center as a senior, Cobb was an academic all-ACC selection and collected the prestigious Jim Tatum award, presented to the ACC football senior with the highest grade point average, and the Bob Warren Memorial Award, given to the Wolfpack football player that displays the highest integrity and sportsmanship. After receiving post-graduate scholarships from both the ACC and NFL Charities, Cobb earned a master’s degree in Sports Administration from Ohio University in 1992.
