Primed for a blockbuster spring, Moses finished a full foot above the field at the Pennsylvania Track and Field Coaches Association's State Indoor Track and Field Championships held Saturday at Penn State University.
The senior pole vaulter easily leaped his way to gold, clearing 15-6 to best runner-up Zeb Yoder of Chambersburg's 14-6. Moses, who eclipsed 16-feet at the LVC Invitational in December, represented one of five Lebanon County student-athletes to place in the PTFCA meet at Happy Valley.
On the track, Annville-Cleona's senior Shawn Wolfe added another scholastic medal to his collection with a sixth-place award in the 800-meter run. Wolfe crossed in 1:55.68, roughly three seconds behind leader Brad Rivera of Bensalem (1:52.43).
Northern Lebanon's Joe Vedilago also competed in two boys' events, sprinting to ninth in the 400-meter dash (50.33) and 16th in the 200-meter (22.64).
On the girls' side, Palmyra's Rachel Kline sailed to a seventh place finish in the high jump, clearing 5-02. Additionally, Annville-Cleona's Avree Wright measured 35-04.75 for 14th in the shot put. Cocalico's Emily Stauffer won the event with a distance of 43-06.75.
