Nick Moore: Athlete of the Week

Posted:

Nick Moore earned this moment-- as the Wells Fargo crowd stood to applaud a high school career culminating in a 4th state championship-- it was a moment that left the Iowa City West High Senior nearly speechless--

Moore earned the state title with a hard fought 11 to 6 decision over runner-up Spencer BeLieu of Urbandale. It was the 179th victory of a career where Moore only tasted defeat a single time. He credits much of that to his coaches-- which he says caused his emotions to run over on Saturday night--Moore: I just know I did it, that's it. I don't know, I don't know yet. It feels good.

 

 

Moore: It was just everything that he's done for me. Everything that coach Matt Orton did for me, and you look over and you see that they care about it as much as you do. It's just a bond that you have with your coaches.

Although Moore's high school career is over, he plans on doing big things when he joins Tom Brands and the Iowa Hawkeyes next season.

Moore: This is over now. I don't get to come back here, but at the same time I have to move on an do bigger things.
