"As a program we've been blessed to work with some great people and incredible athletes," commented Head Coach Jesse Baumann, who is in his sixth season leading the program and has won all ten indoor conference championships he has coached in with the men and women. "These seven certainly are among some of the most notable athletes that have been pillars of our program and its success over the years as five of them earned All American awards and all seven represented Moravian at the NCAA Championships. They hold numerous school records and Anna is still on the Division III NCAA All Time list for the pole vault so obviously they were incredible athletes. However, we've been fortunate to have a lot of depth over the years as well. There are numerous other conference champions, school record holders, and even All Americans who weren't on this list, so again, we've been very lucky to have some incredible talent to work with over the years and hope to keep that tradition going."
