SPECIAL FEATURE ON SENIORS (March 25, 2020) – Our Lady of the Lake University's (OLLU) Andrew Moczygemba has received multiple honors throughout his time at OLLU and optimized what it meant to be a Saint.

He competed in the Trinity Invitational outdoor event before the season was cut short. Moczygemba ran in the 5k and placed 20th with a time of 17:42.80.
Moczygemba held the school record with a first-place finish at the RRAC meet in 2017.

He was able to compete in his second NAIA Cross Country Championship in November. He competed in the 8k and finished with a time of 28:59.2.
Moczygemba commented on the season ending abruptly, "For my final season of running to end out of the blue without having any type of control over it hurts a lot. My teammates and I were going to make a lot of noise this year, and because of the unfortunate circumstances of all of this, that won't happen. I just want to thank every teammate I've had over the years of my career. I also want to thank all my coaches, especially Coach Stephen Sherman since he's coached me during all my personal records. I want to thank OLLU, the staff, students and supporters of our athletics. We thrive from your support, and our success over the years has shown it. Thank you for an unbelievable run, no pun intended."
Moczygemba's hobbies include running, working and eating. His athletic role model is retired NBA player from the San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan.
