Appalachian State University high jumper Darius Purcell was named as the Southern Conference Field Athlete of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday. Purcell, who set a new

Appalachian record and finished second at last week's Wake Forest Invitational with a leap of 7’ 3.25”, won the high jump at the season-opening Coastal Carolina Invitational on March 10.
In addition to his Athlete of the Week award, Purcell is ranked first in both the SoCon and the East Region in the high jump this season.
The Mountaineers return to action this weekend at the South Carolina Weems Baskin Invitational (March 23-24) while a handful of athletes will also compete at the High Point VertKlasse Meeting on Saturday.
