Senior sprinter Zrreyah Moore has had a record-breaking season for the Rutgers—Newark women's track and field team. Moore has been with the Scarlet Raiders for three seasons and currently holds school record finishes in the 60-meter, 200-meter and 400-meter dash.

Moore broke her first set of school records in February at the FastTrack National Invitational in Staten Island, New York. In the 60-meter and 400-meter dash, Moore finished with school record-breaking times of 7.67 and 55.93, respectively. She also earned the gold medal in the 200-meter dash with a school-record time of 24.92, but that finish would be improved on.

Two weeks later, Moore secured an even better finish in the 200-meter dash at the Last Chance meet. Moore finished with a time of 24.59, breaking her own record and setting a new school record once again in the 200-meter dash.

At the NJAC Championships, she set a NJAC record with her time of 7.58 in the 60-meter dash. Her finish helped propel Rutgers—Newark to fourth place at the championship.

To finish off the track and field season, Moore finished sixth at the NCAA Division III Championships in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Moore credits a lot of her accomplishments to her family's support.

"They're a big part of my support system," she said. "So, even though when I was growing up, they initiated me going into sports, they initiated me doing track, staying active. And they're always there for me, and I feel as though I want to give back to them, I want to support them and track is not just collegiate for me, I want to go further in track as well."

After the season ended, Moore won multiple accolades. Moore was named NJAC's G. Larry James Most Outstanding Athlete for 2024. She was also named to the First Team All-NJAC for the 60-meter, 200-meter and 400-meter dash.

"Maturity-wise, physically, mentally. She's become stronger in both of those areas," said assistant coach Bruce Berry. "When I had her as a freshman and sophomore, she was more of a participant. Now, she's a competitor."

Head coach Juan Edney has nothing but praise for Moore.

"Against all odds, she has done nothing but succeed," he said.

Moore capped off her historic 2023-2024 campaign, by being named a First Team All-American for her finish in the 400-meter dash and a Second Team All-American for her finishes in the 60-meter and 200-meter dash.

"I've been here for 17 years, and she is just elite. I don't know too many people who can say they would surpass her athletically-wise," Edney said. "In her own right, I really feel like she is the best to ever walk through those doors especially since we started this program in 2007."
