MSSU green for Susie Moman’s sophomore season

Posted

Same color, different school.

That will be the case this fall for former Belle Lady Tiger Track and Field athlete Susie Moman.

After completing her first season of collegiate track and field at William Woods University (WWU) in Fulton, Moman has decided to transfer to Missouri Southern State University (MSSU) in Joplin to become a member of the Lady Lions Track and Field program. She will still keep green as one of her school colors in Joplin.

Concluding her freshman season as a Lady Owl at WWU, Moman competed in four events at the American Midwest Conference (AMC) Outdoor Track and Field Championships held on the campus of Missouri Baptist University in St. Louis.

Clearing 1.30 meters in the women’s high jump, Moman helped the Lady Owls with a seventh-place finish in the event good for two team points.

Posting a throw of 31.17m on her first of six attempts in the women’s discus, Moman’s mark also earned her seventh place in that event.

Winning a state championship during her senior season at BHS in the Class 2 Girls Javelin during the 2021 Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) State Track and Field Championships in Jefferson City, Moman posted her best finish of the AMC meet in the women’s javelin.

Posting a distance of 31.58m on her second of six throws, Moman placed fifth in the events adding four team points to WWU’s score.

Just missing double digits in the women’s shot put, Moman’s best throw of 9.49m on her fifth attempt left her just outside the top eight and scoring range with a ninth-place finish.

“Susie had a strong freshman season,” WWU head track and field coach Dan Schwab said. “She worked diligently in the weight room and I look forward to see her progress substantially.”

Moving up from the ranks of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletic (NAIA), Moman will now be competing at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division II level.

A member of the Midwest Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA), Moman will compete against other athletes from MIAA schools in Missouri, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Kansas.

Area fans looking to watch Moman compete in Missouri have that chance at Lincoln University (Jefferson City), Northwest Missouri State University (Maryville), Missouri Western State University (St. Joseph) and the University of Central Missouri (Warrensburg).
