The local newspaper:
Appalachian State’s basketball teams could probably qualify for bonus frequent flier miles after the past week.
App State’s men’s basketball team has traveled all over the Southeast to play basketball. Of the Mountaineers’ 13 games, 10 have been away from Boone, which includes eight different states, if a trip to Charlotte is included.
Charlotte, a large city in the Piedmont region of North Carolina near the South Carolina border, is a 2 hour bus ride from Boone, a small college town in the mountains. Naturally, one would want to count the trip as a trip to another state. In fact, given the differences between Boone and Charlotte it is worlds away!
