Catching up with the GoASU memorable games countdown starting on July 4th.
Game 30: Field Hockey 3 Radford 2
We had this game ranked 26th. It was the team’s only road victory on the season in a season that saw only two wins. The other game in contention was a 3-2 home win over Liberty. This gives us one correctly guessed game in the Top 30.
Game 29: Volleyball 3, NCSU 1
We had this game ranked 13th. It was a big win for the program over an ACC school at home. The atmosphere was intense and the students rushed the court after the final point of the match. It is another correct guess which leaves us 2/2. However, the spread between 29th and 13th will hurt us along the way if tiebreakers come into play.
Game 28: Men’s Cross Country 4th of 11 at SoCon Championships
Does close count? We had a meet ranked 27th, but whiffed on the exact meet. Although the team extended its top four conference finish streak to 31 stright years, we didnt feel finishing fourth in conference was memorable enough. We ranked the 4th place finish of 23 teams at the Blue Ridge Open at this spot in the countdown. Appalachian edged out conference foes Furman and Charleston along with East Tennessee State, UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Wilmington and UNC-Asheville. This result drops us to 2/3 on the list.
