 App State Athletics is auctioning 14 game-worn helmets, one from each football game in the 2021 season.


The Mountaineers (14-10, 3-3 Sun Belt) won 11-0 in Game 1 of the series but dropped the next two games against the Panthers. App State is currently tied for fourth in the conference standings. The Mountaineers will be back in action Tuesday for a home-opening doubleheader against Western Carolina. First pitch for Game 1 is scheduled for 4 p.m., with Game 2 to follow. 


App State Baseball opens conference play Friday as they begin a three-game weekend series against the Georgia Southern Eagles. First pitch Friday is slated for 5 p.m. The contest Saturday will begin at 3 p.m., and Sunday's finale will feature a 1 p.m. first pitch. All three games will be broadcast on ESPN+.


 The App State offense put together a pair of four-run innings at the plate, while the pitching staff combined to strike out 14, as the Mountaineers took down Georgia Southern 11-6, to take the finale of the three-game series. The Mountaineers will head to Chapel Hill on Tuesday to face off with North Carolina at 6 p.m. The contest will be broadcast on ACC Network Extra.
