Katy Moen: Athlete of the Week

Posted:

Our athlete of the week finished third at the State cross county meet a year ago but that has only fueled her motivation which has her here at the Wapsie ridge golf course everyday for another shot at a title

Katy Moen of Wapsie Valley has exceeded all expectations this year but the still driven senior is not quite finished as she prepares for the stretch run.

"Eastern Iowa is loaded with cross country talent, schools our size schools bigger, our conference is loaded actually and sh'e had her work cut out for her every race. That's a great way to set up for the end of the season here for districts, conference and hopefully state.

In a sports based on individual accomplishments Moen has become a leader for the Warriors Cross country team striving for excellence in herself and bringing out the best in her teammates.

"We work together as a team in our workout; we try to keep each other going keep our positive atmosphere going as much as possible."

"It doesn't matter weather you're a boy or a girls or varsity or JV it's neat and Katy is kind of the leader of all that."

Dating back to her freshman year Moen has finished 9th, 5th, and 3rd at the State Cross Country Meet and as the top ranked runner in class 1A she has finished first in 9 out of 9 events this season."

"she paces herself so well that if you try to run with her you're probably going to run out of gas. You try to catch her at the end she's probably going to be far enough ahead of you that you're in a tough spot."

"Just keep running now, and hopefully it will work out that way."
