In addition to winning the event, the jump also qualified him for ECAC Championships in May. It’s the second event Moore has earned an ECAC berth, as he also ran on the 4x100 relay that earned a spot during the team’s first outdoor meet March 23rd.

That wasn’t the only top placement Moore posted on Saturday, as he took second place in the long jump as well with a jump of 21-7.5. He also ran on the 4x100 relay which placed third with a time of 43.55.

An economics major, Umar is the son of Ron and Linda Moore of Coraopolis, Pa.
