Appalachian State senior Isaac Harrow just keeps piling up the numbers. Harrow went 3-5 with three runs scored and three runs-batted-in on Tuesday night as the Apps, winners in 22 of their last 25 games, blasted Radford 14-3 at Smith Stadium/Beaver Field.


Harrow singled in the first inning tying the school record with 239 career hits, which was originally set by Chris Behne (1997-2000). He set the new record with a two-run double in the second inning. Harrow, who is batting .422, now has 241 career hits and 62 career doubles, breaking the old mark of 61 in a season that he shared with former teammate David Rubinstein.
The Apps (27-17) take on UNC-Asheville tonight (air-time, 6:40 pm on WATA) before North Carolina Central comes to town for a 4pm game on Thursday.
Katie Boyd of the ASU softball team also set two Southern Conference records yesterday in a 7-6 loss to Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. Boyd walked three times, giving her 60 walks on the year. And she also scored her 44th run of the season, another conference record. ASU (25-26) travels to North Carolina State on Sunday. The SoCon tournament will be played in Chattanooga May 6-9.

And ASU made it official at 9:30 am that Buzz Peterson is the new men’s basketball coach. Peterson, a two-time SoCon Coach of the Year (1998 and 2000), is in his second go-round with the program. He led ASU to 79 wins, which includes three consecutive 20-win seasons, a SoCon tournament championship and an NCAA tournament berth---only the second one in school history.
