Track and Field Weaver: By the Numbers

John Weaver

Director of Track & Field and Cross Country Appalachian State, 1971 35th Year Weaver is in his 35th season as the head coach and director of the women’s track and field and cross country programs and is in his 21st season as the director for both the men and women’s programs. Weaver assumed the duties of directing both programs in the fall of 1995. A 1971 graduate of Appalachian State in biology, Weaver returned in 1979 as a graduate assistant in the men’s program while earning his masters in biology. During his three-year tenure as the men’s assistant, he trained two NCAA qualifiers and seven Southern Conference champions. Weaver took over the full-time coaching duties for the women’s program in 1982. He is the only full-time head coach the women’s program has had since its beginnings. Since that time, the program including cross country, indoor track and outdoor track has produced a NCAA Division I National Champion in the 1500m twice, 9 NCAA Division I All-Americans with 23 All-American performances, 26 NCAA Division I qualifiers, two Sun Belt Conference team championships (women’s indoor and women’s cross country), 13 Sun Belt Conference individual titles, 61 Sun Belt all-conference performances (40 in track and 21 in cross country), one Sun Belt Conference Outstanding Track Performer, one Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year honor, 373 Southern Conference individual champion performances, 928 Southern Conference all-conference performances, 34 Southern Conference MVP athletes, 45 Southern Conference team championships, 27 Southern Conference Coach of the Year honors, 28 Southern Conference Freshman of the Year honors, 50 SoCon All-Freshman team honors, and 2 Southeast Region Coach of the Year honors. In the Southern Conference, the women’s program has accomplished 7 triple crowns as well as a SoCon title in cross country, indoor track and outdoor track in the same academic year. The women won 20 straight SoCon Championships from 1987 to 1993. Mountaineer women currently hold 5 SoCon indoor individual event records and 10 SoCon outdoor individual event records. After Weaver took over the men’s program in 1995, the Mountaineers have produced 10 NCAA Division I All-Americans, 9 NCAA All-American performances, 37 Division I qualifiers, 178 Southern Conference individual champion performances, 3 Sun Belt Conference individual champion performances, 654 Southern Conference all-conference performances, 9 Sun Belt Conference all-conference performances, 29 Southern Conference MVP athletes, 30 Southern Conference team championships, 15 Southern Conference Coach of the Year honors, 59 Southern Conference All-Freshman team honors and one Southeast Region Coach of the Year honor. In the SoCon, the men’s program has accomplished 4 triple crowns and Mountaineer men currently hold 5 SoCon indoor individual event records and 11 SoCon outdoor individual event records. Appalachian State has qualified 67 men and 49 women for the East Region with 8 NCAA Championship qualifying performances coming out of the region. In 2004, Appalachian had its first East Region champion with a first place in the 100m dash for the men. Under Weaver’s direction, the Mountaineer men and women have won 75 SoCon team titles, produced one NCAA National Individual Champion (two-time winner), 14 NCAA All-Americans with 31 All-American performances, 63 NCAA Championship qualifiers, 62 SoCon MVP’s, 555 SoCon Individual Event Champions, 1590 All-SoCon performances, 28 SoCon Freshman of the Year awards, 109 All-SoCon Freshman Team awards, 42 SoCon Coach of the Year honors and 3 Southeast Region Coach of the Year honors. After one year in the Sun Belt Conference, his men and women’s teams have garnered 5 individual event titles and 19 all-conference honors. The men’s program had the outdoor MVP in its first year. The Weaver directed programs for men and women have not only accomplished athletic honors, but academically, they have distinguished themselves with 21 NCAA All-Academic team distinctions, 15 NCAA All-Academic women and 3 NCAA All-Academic men. There have been, on average, 35 of the program’s athletes on the semester honor rolls each semester since 1995. Weaver worked as the Yosef Club Director (athletic fundraising arm of the ASU Foundation, Inc.) from 1982 to 1985. He has also taught classes in the education and physical education departments of the University. A native of Fayetteville, North Carolina, Weaver graduated from Seventy-First High School in 1967. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in 1971 from Appalachian before returning to Fayetteville to teach biology and eventually take over the cross country and track programs at Douglas Byrd High School in 1972. Currently, Weaver coaches the long sprints (400m/800m), javelin, hurdlers, and multi-event athletes while overseeing all aspects of the track and cross country programs as its director. Weaver served on the NCAA Division I Track and Cross Country Committee from September of 2006 until September of 2010. He currently serves on the NCAA Track and Field Rules Committee and is a member of the USTFCCCA Championship Advisory Committee and serves as the 2nd Vice President on the USTFCCCA Division I Executive Committee. During the summer of 2012, Weaver was chosen as the sprints and hurdles coach for the men’s USA National Under 23 team that competed in Mexico. Each summer, Weaver directs the Grandfather Mountain Marathon, The Bear Race and two Cross Country Team Camps. Over 900 athletes attend camp at Appalachian each summer for cross country and track events. Weaver is married to Cynthia Harmon of Lenoir, North

Michael Curcio

Head Cross Country/Distance Coach Applachian State, 1987 22nd Year Mike Curcio is in his 22nd year as the head men’s and women’s cross country coach and track and field distance coach at Appalachian State University. For the 2016 cross country season, Curcio led the women’s team to Appalachian’s first-ever Sun Belt Conference Cross Country title collecting 43 team points, the lowest team score recorded at the championship meet since 2010. All six women earned all-conference honors and Curcio won the Head Women’s Cross Country Coach of the Year award. The men’s squad finished in sixth, and two runners garnered third team all-conference honors. In the fall of 2015, both the men’s and women’s cross country teams finished second at the Sun Belt Conference Championships. Tristin Van Ord was the individual runner-up and went on to earn All-Southeast Regional honors and was tabbed an Academic All-American in cross country. Also, six athletes earned All-Sun Belt accolades. On the track, Curcio’s distance squad aided in the women grabbing their first ever Sun Belt Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship and ten of his athletes moved onto Appalachian’s all-times list. For the indoor season, Curcio coached Tristin Van Ord to becoming the 2016 Sun Belt Indoor MVP and guided her to winning individual titles in the 3,000-meter race and the 5,000-meter competition. During the outdoor season, Curcio’s athletes broke two school records in the 10,000 meters and the 3,000-meter steeplechase, and he had one athlete qualify for junior nationals. Curcio’s standout athlete Van Ord would go on and win the 5,000 meters and the 10,000 meters at the Sun Belt Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships and the Chapel Hill native qualified for the first round of the NCAA Championships. In addition to her accomplishments on the track, Van Ord earned Academic All-American honors. On the men’s side, distance runner Michael Ellis grabbed All-Sun Belt honors in two events due to his second-place finish in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and winning the 5,000-meter competition. For cross country in 2014, Appalachian State’s first year as a member of the Sun Belt Conference, Curcio led both the men’s and women’s teams to a second-place finish at the Sun Belt meet in Mobile, Alabama. In that event, the men finished just two points behind South Alabama and the women were nine points away from first-place Texas-Arlington. The men secured four all-conference selections while the women earned three of their own. When it came to track and field, the distance category produced a total of four Sun Belt titles and 14 all-conference performances. Tristin Van Ord carried over her success from the cross country season to win an indoor title in the 5,000, outdoor titles in both the 5,000 and 10,000 and was also named all-conference for the indoor 3,000. Hana Ratcliffe, Brooke Brekke, Torre Moser, and Shelby Howell made up the third-place distance medley relay team at the indoor championships while Dana Cox took third place at the outdoor 10,000 to earn an all-conference nod. For the men, Kyle McFoy was an indoor champ (5,000) and Evan Laratta, Josh Hanna, Ryan Hastings, and Michael Ellis were all part of the outdoor all-conference distance medley relay team that placed second. For the men’s team in 2013, Curcio led them to a second-place finish at the SoCon championship meet. Kyle McFoy placed sixth and also was named to the SoCon first-team. Josh Cox, James Howard-Smith and Will Raby all took second-team honors. The women’s team finished fourth in the Southern Conference that season. Justine Stocks earned all-SoCon for the women’s team. During the track and field season, the men earned four all-SoCon honors with four performances moving into the top ten all-time lists. The women also earned four all-SoCon honors and had eight performances that moved into the top ten all-time lists. Stocks broke the program record in the 3,000m steeplechase with a mark of 10:37. The 2013-14 track campaign also saw four athletes reach the first round of the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field

championships. Chris Moen and Josh Cox qualified in the 3,000m steeplechase. Alex Taylor made his third trip in the 1,500m run and Amanda Hamilton made her first trip in the 10,000m on the strength of her program-record performance of 34:52. The 2012 campaign was a banner year for the Mountaineers’ middle-distance/distance runners on the track as Curcio helped coach three athletes who broke five school records. Will Raby set the school record for the 5,000-meter event in indoor track, while Alex Taylor and Chris Moen teamed up with two sprinters to set the school record in the distance medley relay for indoor track at the SoCon Championships. Taylor set the App State record in the 800 and 1500-meter events while teaming up with Moen and two of Appalachian’s sprinters to break a 28-year old Appalachian record in the distance medley relay at the 2012 Penn Relays. Curcio coached four men to the first round of the NCAA Championships in 2012 in outdoor track, as Taylor qualified for both the 800 and 1,500-meter events and Moen, Sean Soderman and Josh Cox all qualified for the 3,000-meter steeplechase. Curcio’s cross country teams have been very successful under his tenure, as they have captured two women’s Southern Conference titles and 11 men’s SoCon championships, including six-straight men’s titles from 2005-10. During his time at App State, Curcio has coached nine NCAA Qualifiers, 17 NCAA Regional Qualifiers, 21 USATF Junior National Qualifiers and seven Southern Conference Cross Country Freshmen of the Year. In addition to those feats, Curcio has also coached 93 all-Southern Conference Cross Country performers and four Southern Conference Cross Country individual champions. While coaching the distance runners for Appalachian track and field, Curcio has coached 59 athletes to SoCon indoor and outdoor individual champion performances and 208 runners to all-conference indoor and outdoor performances. He has also coached two athletes to SoCon indoor track and field MVP awards and two outdoor track and field MVP awards. As athletic excellence is important, Curcio and his teams also strive for success in academics. Since being at Appalachian, Curcio has coached two NCAA post graduate scholarship award winners, one Southern Conference post graduate scholarship award winner, three Mrs. Brakefield award recipients, for an Appalachian senior studentathlete with the highest GPA, and 13 USTFCCCA academic all-Americans. During the 2011-12 season, both the App State men’s and women’s recorded multi-year APR scores well above the national average while the men were recognized with an NCAA Public Recognition Award for compiling a fouryear APR of 1,000 and ranking among the top 10 percent of all teams in the nation. For all of his efforts, in 2003 Curcio was named the USTCA Division I Men’s National Assistant Coach of the Year for Distance. He also has been recognized by the Southern Conference for his team’s impressive performances, being named the SoCon’s men’s cross country coach of the year nine times. Before coming to Appalachian, Curcio served as an assistant at Florida State from 1988-1992. In the spring of 1993, he became an assistant at South Florida, where he helped build a fledgling track and field program, along with a nationally-ranked cross country program. The track women at USF won three conference titles in the first four years of the program’s existence. The men’s and women’s cross country teams were ranked as high as 12th and 21st in Division I during his tenure. Curcio hails from Long Island, N.Y. where he attended Newfield High School before attending and competing for Appalachian State University. He was a three-time all-SoCon selection in track and still ranks seventh all-time in the 1,500 meter run with a time of 3:49.60.

10.44 in the quarterfinals. Buckley went on to the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Ore. and placed 21st in the semifinals with a time of 10.45 earning him honorable mention All-American honors. McLean helped the sophomore to personal bests of 10.30 and 21.01, which put him second and third place all-time in the App State record books. The sprinters under McLean have shown vast improvement under his guidance. Key accomplishments include: • Breanna Alston broke the school’s 300m indoor, 400m outdoor, women’s 4x400, and sprint medley records in 2014 • The men’s 4x100 relay team that placed 14th at the 2012 NCAA Championships with a school record time of 39.70 In the past eleven years, McLean has produced 36 SoCon Champions, 87 All-Conference performances, 6 SoCon MVP’s, 25 regional standard performances, 13 NCAA qualifiers from five competitors, 10 USATF Championship/ Olympic Trial (OT) qualifiers, Appalachian record holders in the indoor long jump: Vonteena Knotts (20’ 10.50”); triple jump: Ronda White (44’ 2”); 300m: Breanna Alston (38.50), along with SoCon indoor and outdoor record holders in the triple jump: Ronda White (43’ 7”) and Danielle Thorpe (43’ 2.25”). In a short period of time, McLean’s athletes own 34 of the 80 men’s and women’s top 10 indoor and outdoor track and field marks in Appalachian State history. The strength program for the sprinters, jumpers and hurdlers has been under the tutelage of McLean since 2002. Maintaining a coaching perspective during practice, he transfers what will be beneficial for the athletes to the weight room. App State greats include, but are not limited to, Ernest Wiggins (10.18, OT competitor), Ronda White (20’ 1”, 44’ 2”, OT competitor), Jennifer Claud, Charles Derrickson, Vonteena Knotts, and Joel Gaddy who have all seen the positive aspects that come from the strength program. McLean presents various coaching techniques and methods at an annual speaking engagement for the NCTCCCA, is a member of the USATF and USTFCCCA, has his USATF Level 2 certification in the jumps, sprints & relays, USTFCCCA Strength & Conditioning certification and attended the Emerging Elite Coaches Clinic at the Olympic Training Center in San Diego, Calif. The Lincolnton, N.C. native holds a B.S. degree in communication with a concentration in advertising and a minor in business.

With thirteen years of coaching experience, McLean brings a wealth of knowledge about coaching, strengthening and training effective and successful athletes in track & field within the Sun Belt Conference. A 2002 graduate of Appalachian State, McLean was a two-time conference champion in the long jump in both indoor and outdoor track and qualified for the NCAA Championships in 2001. He holds the third-highest mark on App State’s all-time long jump list with a mark of 25’ 1” (PR - 26’). Additionally, McLean was part of the indoor record for the 4x300 relay. His collegiate resume was balanced with performances in the triple jump, high jump, 100m dash, and the 4x100 relay. During his fifth season (2002), McLean served as an undergraduate track assistant for sprints, hurdles and jumps. He graduated in May of 2002 and worked in advertising before returning to Boone to become a full-time coach. In App State’s second year in the Sun Belt Conference, McLean’s female athletes contributed 33 points to catapult the Mountaineers to their first-ever Sun Belt Conference Indoor Track and Field title.

Holmes Convocation Center

Kidd Brewer Stadium

The outdoor home of the Appalachian track and field team, Kidd Brewer Stadium stands 3,333 feet above sea level and seats 16,650. Also home to the football, it was the first facility in either North or South Carolina to install artificial turf, with Appalachian and Elon staging the first football game on fake grass in the Carolinas on Oct. 3, 1970. Opened Sept. 15, 1962, the stadium was originally constructed with 10,000 permanent seats. Seating capacity was expanded to 18,000 following the 1978 season. Completion of an extensive renovation and restoration project on the original 10,000 seats in 1995 readjusted the seating capacity to 16,650. A multi-purpose facility, Kidd Brewer Stadium is also home to intramural sports, while classes and the community use the facility, as well. Owens Field House, at the north end of the stadium, houses athletic and fundraising offices, locker rooms and equipment areas, along with the Dr. Hugh S. Daniel Conference Room. In 1989, a new building was added adjacent to the field house, with athletic and coaching offices, the Dr. Evan Ashby Sports Medicine Room, strength and conditioning areas, and locker rooms. The stadium is named after Kidd Brewer, one of the Mountaineers’ most successful head football coaches, and a colorful part of North Carolina history. Brewer, a Winston-Salem, N.C., native, served as football coach of the Mountaineers for four seasons (1935-38), compiling a 30-5-3 overall mark. An all-American backfield star at Duke University, Brewer’s 1937 Appalachian squad was unbeaten and unscored upon in the regular season. After leaving Appalachian, Brewer started a sales career, but shortly thereafter reported for active duty in World War II. He served as a Naval lieutenant in the Pacific. After the war, Brewer was secretary to U.S. Sen. Josiah W. Bailey (D-N.C.). Upon Bailey’s death in office Brewer served his replacement, Sen. William B. Umstead, as administrative assistant. Brewer returned to North Carolina and ran for lieutenant governor in 1956. Between campaigns for governor (1964) and state court of appeals (1968), he made a name for himself as a developer, insurance salesman and philanthropist. Kidd Brewer Stadium, dedicated Sept. 3, 1988, was named Conrad Stadium from 1962 to 1988 for William J. Conrad, a former Appalachian State University trustee and R.J. Reynolds executive.

Varsity Gym During both the indoor and outdoor seasons, the track and field teams are able to escape the elements with an expansive practice facility in Varsity Gym. A new Mondo track surface was added in 2007 with a length of over 100 meters. Along with the track surface, the facility houses a shot put and weight throwing area, pole vault and high jump facilities, a full weight-lifting area and athletic training facilities. Varsity Gym’s floor also received a facelift in 2008, as a new hardwood surface was installed. The arena is the practice home for wrestling, men’s and women’s basketball, volleyball and field hockey.

Appalachian indoor track and field enters its eighth season in the George M. Holmes Convocation Center. The Holmes Center serves as home of Mountaineer indoor track and field, as well as Appalachian’s men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs. The facility houses a 300m directional mondo surface. Standing on Rivers Street at Appalachian State University, the 200,840-square foot Holmes Center serves as the cornerstone to the entry to campus and houses App’s Department of Health, Leisure and Exercise Science. The structure also includes the 8,325-seat Seby Jones Arena, which hosts a number of comHolmes Center Track munity and cultural events in addition to Appalachian athletics, including graduation and convocation ceremonies, trade shows and concerts.

With much anticipation, every seat for the App-UNC showdown was sold in advance, marking the first pre-gameday sellout in school history for any sporting event. The athletics ticket office sold the full allotment of tickets for the Indoor Holmes Center Setup inaugural contest at the Holmes Center in just 12 minutes. Public service, a cornerstone upon which Appalachian was founded, is the hallmark of the two individuals whose names adorn the university’s convocation center, as former App Chancellor, Francis T. Borkowski announced that the center would be called the George M. Holmes Convocation Center and its arena the Seby Jones Arena on March 20, 1999. Holmes is a Republican member of the North Carolina House of Representatives, representing the 41st District (Yadkin, Wilkes and Alexander Counties). He is the senior co-chair of the North Carolina House of Appropriations Committee. A native of Mount Airy, N.C., Holmes attended Appalachian on a football scholarship in the 1950’s. Holmes first entered political office from 1975-76 and has served 11 terms since 1979. He serves on the Governor’s Advisory Budget Commission, the Joint Legislative Commission on Governmental Operations and the Joint Legislative Transportation Oversight Committee. Holmes was instrumental in securing the bulk of the $36.8 million needed to build the convocation center. Jones served as mayor and a council member of Raleigh from 1967-71. He also served on App’s Board of Trustees for eight years, chairing the Board in 1990-91.

BOONE AND THE SURROUNDING AREA Boone lies in a small valley in the heart of the Southern Appalachians. It is named after the hunter and explorer Daniel Boone, who spent time in the region during the 1760s. Watauga County was formed in 1849 and the Town of Boone incorporated in 1872. Boone’s accolades include National Geographic Adventure magazine’s “Best Places to Live and Play,” Outside magazine’s top 10 “Best Towns in America,” USA Today’s “10 Great Small Towns with Huge Backyards,” ”U.S. News and World Report’s “10 Best Places to Retire in the U.S.” and TripAdvisor’s “Hidden Gems: 13 U.S. Towns That Are Diamonds in the Rough.” Boone is also ranked the 10th safest place in North Carolina by Movoto.com and 19th in SafeWise.com’s “50 Safest Cities in North Carolina,” based on the latest FBI crime report data. Boone is a college town, home to Appalachian State University. Originally Watauga Academy, the institution was formed to educate the mountain children and to ultimately prepare teachers for service through western North Carolina. It became Appalachian State Teachers College in 1929 and joined the University of North Carolina system in 1971. The university serves as a top economic driver followed by a combination of tourism, small business and residential home construction. The Boone area is characterized by mountain culture and casual living. Outdoor activities, cultural events, local dining and unique shops attract visitors from all over the world year-round. From breathtaking scenic views to Boone’s eclectic downtown area, known as King Street, there is something for everyone. One of the highlights of downtown Boone is the university’s Turchin Center for the Visual Arts. It features six gallery spaces and a community education and outreach program. Its exhibitions focus on a blend of recent and historically important artwork and feature nationally and internationally renowned artists as well as many of the finest artists of the region. A wide array of quality arts and cultural events enhance the Boone community. The university’s month-long celebration of performing and visual arts, known as An Appalachian Summer Festival, has brought notable performers such as Paul Taylor Dance Company, London City Opera, Charlie Daniels and the Glenn Miller Orchestra. During the academic year, Appalachian hosts the Performing Arts Series with artists such as Garrison Keillor and the National Symphony Orchestra. Boone offers an uncommon quality of life – that’s why many visitors come for a weekend and stay for a lifetime.
