Moore Wins Two Gold on Final Day in WAC Championships
Madelyn Moore’s Northern Colorado head coach Lisa Ebeling couldn't have asked for a better effort from her athletes on the final night of swimming at the WAC Championships.
Northern Colorado grabbed Gold in two races, including the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay Final, capping off a terrific season in the pool.
If Moore was headed home Sunday, she was going to go all out in the pool on Saturday. Chasing her own record in the 100 Yard Freestyle, Moore narrowly missed by just .03 seconds but hit the wall first at 49.35, grabbing her second Individual Gold of the championships and hitting another NCAA B cut time.
The night, and the meet, came to a dramatic conclusion with the 400 Yard Freestyle Relay. Ali Jackson, Saana Liikonen, Petra Kis, and Moore were the four Ebeling sent out for Northern Colorado’s final race of the meet.
Northern Colorado was in third when Moore hit the water for the anchor leg. If anyone in the Human Performance Center thought Moore wouldn't run New Mexico State and Grand Canyon down, they proved to be dead wrong. Moore came home in 48.49 and solidified a second Gold Medal for Northern Colorado.
