BOONE, N.C. – Championship-level success, major facility enhancements and comprehensive excellence will be among the leading topics during the 2020 Mountaineer Spring Tour presented by the Yosef Club.

 

App State Athletics’ annual caravan will make seven stops in the state of North Carolina, plus one in Atlanta.
 
The tour will officially kick off Monday evening, March 23, in Raleigh and conclude with an April 2 lunch stop in Asheville.

“The Mountaineer Spring Tour is always a special opportunity for our coaches and staff to get on the road and meet with our loyal fans and alumni across the state of North Carolina and Atlanta,” Gillin said. “We’re excited to share details about the progress of the Mountaineer Impact initiative, which includes support of student-athlete scholarships, endowments, facilities and comprehensive excellence. It’s great to be a Mountaineer!”
