BOONE, N.C. – Thirty-six Appalachian State student-athletes received their letter jackets on Wednesday evening.
The recipients were first-year letterwinners from baseball, women’s golf, men’s golf, softball, women’s tennis, men’s tennis, men’s track & field, women’s track & field and wrestling.
Sponsored by the Former Athletes Association, the ceremony occurs twice a year to honor all letterwinners at the conclusion of their seasons. Student-athletes, coaches, staff and members of the App State administration were in attendance to celebrate the accomplishment.
The presentation included remarks from Director of Athletics Doug Gillin, Director of Student-Athlete Development Pierre Banks and FAA member Hank Hardin. Heidi Swope, a senior on the women’s tennis team, shared her story as a letterwinner and Mountaineer student-athlete.
“Not only does App produce remarkable athletes, it produces remarkable people,” Swope said.
