PERU — Amyra Moxey has achieved many successful milestones in her life by using her intelligence and work ethic in everything she does.
She plans to hit the same types of winning cross-country trails at Peru State College next season.
Moxey has signed a letter of intent to compete in cross country for the Bobcats. The 2020 Louisville graduate attended Clarkson College in Omaha for a year before deciding to transfer to Peru State.
PSC cross-country head coach James Cole said he can’t wait for Moxey to join the team. He felt it would have an immediate impact for the Bobcats.
“Amyra is a college transfer who competed in cross country and high school track in Louisville,” Cole said. “Her years in high school would put her among the best on our fall 2021 team.
“I actually ran the 2021 Nebraska Market to Market with Amyra and several friends from the Nebraska National Guard. She replaced our relay team, which lacked a runner. She performed very well covering nine miles of the 77-mile relay at paces under nine minutes. I think Amyra will be a contender for our top spots in the fall of 2022 and I look forward to racing with her more.
