Men’s Track Athlete of the Week: Eric Moate, Nova Southeastern

Moate earned his second NCAA Championships provisional qualification over the weekend at the UM Hurricane Alumni Invitational, reaching a season-best 10.48 in the 100m, missing his own school record by just .04 seconds to finish fifth among collegiate competitors (11th overall). His time leads the Peach Belt, ranks third in the Southeast Region and ties for 11th nationally. In addition to his solo performance, Moate also anchored the 4x100m relay to improving its NCAA provisional time to 40.94. Joined by Ian Nieves, Timothy Young and Zaheem Anderson, NSU finished fourth among collegiate teams and sixth overall. Recording another time that would top the PBC, Moate registered a 21.34 in the 200m to tie for 14th overall in a field dominated by independent and pro runners - among collegiate performers, Moate tied North Carolina's Ryan Saint-Germain for fourth.
