BANNER ELK, N.C. – The Lees-McRae College track & field programs will return to action this weekend at the Appalachian State Open. The open will run on Jan. 19-20 at the Holmes Convocation Center in Boone, N.C.

Last weekend, the Bobcats competed in the ETSU Invitational in Johnson City, Tenn. Over the course of the two day meet, Lees-McRae notched a trio of top 10 finishes. Pacing all of these performances was freshman Jalen Martin. Martin finished seventh in the long jump with a leap of 6.72m. For his efforts, Martin was named the Conference Carolinas Men's Field Athlete of the Week.
