LOUISVILLE – Cordale Moxey has secured a large number of honors in his track and field career at Louisville.
He will be joining a college program that specializes in the same type of award-winning achievements.
Moxey recently signed a letter of intent to join Doane University’s track and field program. The Tigers rose to the top of men’s team standings at the 2021 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Track and Field Championships. Doane tied for first place at the meet with 44 points. The Tigers earned the program’s first NAIA national championship.
Moxey showcased his track and field skills in multiple events for Louisville this spring. He competed in the 100 meters, 200 meters, 400 meters, long jump, triple jump, 400-meter relay and 1,600-meter relay during the season.
Moxey qualified for the Class C State Meet in the triple jump and 1,600-meter relay. He earned a sixth-place medal in the triple jump with a leap of 41 feet, 8 3/4 inches. He soared past 40 feet six times during the season and had a personal-best jump of 41-10 1/2. That distance is the third-best leap in school history.
Moxey ran the anchor leg on a medal-winning 1,600-meter relay team at state. He joined Talon Ball, Eric Heard and Sam Ahl on a squad that finished sixth in 3:28.86. The four Lions ran the fastest 1,600-meter relay time in school history.
Moxey competed on a 400-meter relay team this spring that ran the sixth-fastest time in school history. Ball, Moxey, Ahl and Quincy Trent posted a mark of 45.97 seconds at the Louisville Invite in late April.
Moxey medaled in the triple jump in all ten track meets he competed in during the spring. He earned four individual and seven relay medals in his other events.
Moxey earned the Nebraska State Colleges Multi-Activity Student Award this year for participating in at least three activities. He took part in football, basketball, track and field, speech and one-act play at Louisville. Fellow students selected him to be Homecoming King this past fall.
Moxey received an Outstanding Acting Award at the district play production contest, and he captured a seventh-place medal in Duet Acting at the conference speech meet. He received a Bronze Membership pin in 2018 for participating in 4-H activities for ten years.
