CHENEY--In a release posted on the Eastern Washington web site, the school announced that former Eagle distance runner Camille Moseley (left/photo courtesy EWU Athletics) has been hired as its interim cross country and distance coach to replace Chris Zeller.
Moseley will head a talented distance squad which combined for a total of 26 top-ten marks and scored 43 points at the most recent Big Sky Outdoor Championships, including four All-Conference performances. She will also coach the women's and men's cross country teams who placed fourth and sixth, respectively, at the 2014 BSC cross country championships – including the program's first individual cross country champion, in Sarah Reiter.
Moseley (formerly Gibb) ran at EWU during the 2003-08 seasons, where she set the school record of 4:30.33 in the 1500, which stood until Katie Mahoney broke it last season.
After graduating from Eastern in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in community health education, she accepted the position as the head girls' cross country coach at Mt. Spokane High School where she coached for three years. Moseley has been the head girls' track coach at Cheney Middle School since 2010, and became the assistant cross country coach at Cheney High School in 2012.
In other happenings over the weekend, former University of Washington standout Jeremy Taiwo, now training at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, finished fifth in the Elite 2 section of the Pole Vault Summit meet in Reno on Saturday with a best jump of 16-0 3/4 (4.90m), after not competing at all in the 2014 season, due to an injury to his left knee suffered in the decathlon long jump at the 2013 world championships in Moscow.
Club Northwest's Levi Keller finished second in the open section with a best of 17-2 3/4 (5.25m).
