rom 2012-18, Florida A&M women’s cross country was the class of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC), winning seven consecutive women’s team titles at the annual conference championship meet. Dr. Darlene Moore was the head coach in Tallahassee, Fla., during that time.
The Rattlers’ run of seven straight championships are the longest such streak in MEAC women’s cross country history.
Moore was named Outstanding Coach in each of those championships, and she also coached two MEAC individual champions during that span: Cynthia Chelego in 2015 and Judith Kibii in 2016. FAMU’s success during Moore’s tenure also bled into track & field, as the Rattlers won the women’s outdoor team title three times — in 2015, 2016 and 2018.
