NEW ORLEANS, La. – Landry Moffo of the Virginia Wesleyan University men's track and field team was named to the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-Academic Team for his work on both the track and the classroom during the 2019 season. To earn such distinction, a student-athlete must have compiled a cumulative GPA of 3.30 and either compete in the NCAA Indoor/Outdoor Championship or finish the regular season ranked in the Top-50 in an individual event.
Just a freshman, Moffo made waves in his first season as a Marlin. During the indoor season he set the Virginia Wesleyan record in the 60-meter hurdles as he crossed the finish line in just 8.42 seconds. That was during the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championships where it earned him second place overall. He transferred his hurdling prowess to the outdoor season where his time of 14.87 in the 110m hurdles earned him first at the ODAC Championships and set the new Marlin record. This time also ranked 38th in all of Division III.
In the classroom, the Stafford, Va. native has excelled as well. Moffo currently holds a 3.42 grade-point average and becomes just the second Marlin on the men's side to earn this honor (Kyle Chowan).
