Seton Hall cross country head coach John Moon was honored earlier this semester with a USTFCCCA Hall of Fame induction. Coach Moon spoke to the Setonian about receiving the honor, what coaching has meant to him, and the pride of his 50-year career at Seton Hall.
In the Big East championships last year, respectively, the men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams are aiming to improve their performances after historical seasons.
Cross country is arguably the least publicized sport at Seton Hall but also among the most difficult because of its grueling schedule. While meets take place with little fanfare, long training runs and the need to stay in top physical condition in addition, to keeping up with homework and classes puts cross country’s difficulty on par with any other Seton Hall sport.
Before turning Seton Hall into a national force, cross country coach John Moon sat behind a desk and inspired others in another way.
The Seton Hall men’s and women’s cross country teams have enjoyed quality seasons, as one has been paced by a well-versed senior peaking at the right time and the other has been led by a freshman who consistently reaches podium finishes.
