Appalachian State University men's track and field broke a 28-year old record at the Penn Relays at Franklin Field on Friday.
The Mountaineers' distance medley relay team of Alex Taylor, Landon Powell, Raphael Rojas and Chris Moen took first place in the college division of the event with a time of 9:55.69 minutes. In the process, the Apps

edged out Big Ten foe Michigan and broke the previous school record of 9:55.71 set at Georgia back in 1984.
Appalachian State will wrap up action at the Penn Relays on Saturday when a number of athletes vie for championships at the nation's oldest and largest track and field meet. Landon Powell will look to win the 100-meter dash after clocking the seventh-fasest time (10.56) in the preliminary heats while Darius Purcell (high jump) and Jamal Tiller (triple jump) will also compete for individual titles.
The Apps got an impressive performance from Sean Soderman on the first day of the meet. Soderman finished eight in the 3,000-meter steeplechase on Thursday evening.
