Former Temple Track Star Sues University
A former Temple track star has sued the university, her former coach and an assistant athletic director for $10 million dollars in damages on a variety of harassment charges including sexual harassment, intimidation, defamation and gender based discrimination.
Ebony Nicole Moore was a thrower on the university’s track and field team from 2009 to 2011, during which time she broke the university’s all-time record in the discus throw and was rated second in the Atlantic-10 Conference in that event.
Moore , now a resident of Lawrenceville, Ga., accused co-defendants track coach kand Senior Associate Athletics Director Kristen Foley as well as several others within the athletic department of verbal abuse, harassment and neglect that culminated in her being dismissed from the team on June 28, 2011, the complaint stated. While the complaint stated that the NCAA overruled Temple’s dismal, Moore was not allowed back on the team.
