Matt Moore, a 2013 Oak Ridge High School graduate, nicknamed “The King” by his high school track and field team, has been named one of the Southern Conference Indoor Track and Field Athletes of the Week. Selections were made by a committee of the league’s track and field coaches.
Matt, a junior who competes for the ETSU Buccaneers, clocked a SoCon-best time of 6.77 seconds (PR) at his first meet of the season in the semifinals of the 60-meter dash at the Buccaneer Invitational held on February 5-6 at ETSU. Moore’s time was .05 seconds shy of tying the program record in the 60-meter dash.
While at Oak Ridge High School, Moore competed in the 2013 New Balance Indoor Nationals, where Matt placed 5th in the 60-meter dash earning an all American, and was 2nd in the 100-meter dash at the TSSAA State Meet.
