“We have been slowly building the program,” Crossings Christian track coach Tyler Field said. “We haven't had any high jumpers because we don't have a high jump pit. We haven't had pole vaulters. They have had to practice at other schools.”
Moore has to use the sand pit for intramural volleyball to practice for the long jump.
“Training is very difficult,” Moore said. “Some days when it rains a lot of the water will not come off of the field. On bad days if there is a lot of water, I will do the hurdles on concrete.”
Crossings Christian will have a track next season. A football stadium and track are currently under construction, but this year the Knights didn't need one to win a state title.
Crossings Christian became a high school just seven years ago, Field said. Six seniors are scheduled to graduate this year, which will quadruple the alumni.
The school's first graduate was two years ago and the second was last year.
“We will have to call them and give them the good news,” Field said.
