Louisburg senior Trinity Moore put together an historic season for the Louisburg cross country team last fall. She also had a strong performance in the classroom as she was named to the academic all-state first team.

After an historic senior season in cross country, the honors are still rolling in for Trinity Moore.

Moore, who finished third at the Class 4A state cross country meet in November, was recently honored for her work in the classroom.

The Louisburg senior was named to the Kansas Cross Country and Track and Field Coaches Association Academic All-State First Team and her coach, John Reece, presented her with a plaque Tuesday at Louisburg High School.

To qualify for the all-state honor, the student athlete must be a junior or senior, must have an unweighted GPA of 3.75 or higher and must have placed in the top 30 at this year’s state cross country meet.

During her four years with the Wildcat cross country team, Moore accumulated four state medals and she helped the Lady Cats to three consecutive state appearances as a team.

She broke her own school record at the Class 4A state meet last November as her time of 19 minutes and 39 seconds was good enough to take third overall. All those accomplishments made her the most decorated runner in Louisburg history.

Moore will continue her cross country career in college next season as she signed with Pittsburg State University and will run for the Gorillas beginning in the fall.
