Erica Moore, daughter of Jeffrey Glen Moore and Carol Lowrey, formerly of Scottsburg, and graduates of Scott County High School was inducted into the Indiana Association of Track and Cross Country Coaches Hall of Fame in a dinner ceremony at the Sherton-Hotel-Keystone at the Crossing in Indianapolis at 5:30 p.m. on January 31.

Moore, a graduate of Sullivan High School, has literally hit the ground running and continues to excel, poised for a shot at the 2016 Olympics. Moore credits her success to many factors, including family, coaches, and plenty of support along the way. My parents have been beyond supportive, states Erica.

As a youngster, Moore won four American Athletic Union National Titles as a sprinter and long jumper. At Sullivan High School she asmassed 16 Western Indiana Conference titles in the 100 and 300 hurdles, 200 and 400 meters and long jump earning all state honors in six sports.

At Indiana State University, she set 10 school records, won 13 Missouri Valley Conference Championships, qualified for the NCAA finals six times and was twice selected as an All-American.

An extremely versatile multi-event athlete at Indiana State University, Moore excelled in the 400-600-800-meter, 100-meter hurdles, long jump, high jump, shot put, javelin, and 4x400-meter relay anchor leg. Her hepthatholon and pentathlon school record still stands.

In 2011 Moore was crowned indoor National Champion in the 800 M. which qualified her for the World Indoor Meet in Istanbul, Turkey, where she won the Bronze medal while recording her personal best indoor time (1:59.57).

She is currently in training for the outdoor track season this year with future goals for entering the World Championships in 2015, then the Olympics in 2016. She is the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Moore, Mary Ellen Welling of Scottsburg and Eric Lowry of Indianapolis.
