West Virginia native Maddy Gardner is preparing to finish her incredible career on top, as she will begin competing in the NCAA Outdoor Championships today. Gardner has been one of the best pole vaulters in Mountaineer history.

Gardner holds the WVU record for pole vault and is a three-time All-American. The Mountaineer senior is also ranked sixth in the nation in the pole vault and this will be her fourth NCAA Championship appearance.

Mountaineer fans can watch Gardner compete on ESPN3 tonight. Fans can keep up with Garnder at the NCAA Championships by checking WVU social media outlets.

Mountaineer fans remember the enthusiasm and energy former West Virginia guard Teyvon Myers brought to the court every game. Tony Caridi and Brad Howe catch up with the former Mountaineer on this episode of Three Guys Before The Game. On the episode, Myers shares his amazing story. During the conversation, Myers discusses his life before college, how he ended up in Morgantown and his WVU career, as well as his current professional career overseas.

WVU also officially announced the addition of quarterback Jarret Doege.

The news of Doege joining the Mountaineers came out a few weeks ago, but the team made the official announcement yesterday. Doege, who previously played for Bowling Green State, will be eligible to play two seasons for WVU.

Former Mountaineer cornerback Aaron Beasley and former WVU head coach Jim Carlen have been selected to be on the next ballot for the College Football Hall of Fame. Beasley became a one-time All-American and a two-time All-Big East player through his tremendous defense and great ability to snag interceptions in the 1990’s. Carlen coached the Mountaineers in the late 1960’s and led the team to three winning seasons in his four years with WVU.
