Position: Distance
In 2006, this irrepressible veteran runner had another breakout year, dropping her 5,000m time drastically. Prior to the '05 campaign, she saw herself as a middle distance runner, but her entry into the 10,000m at the Big West Championships changed everything. Focusing this year on the 5k, Moser would drop her time by over forty seconds to 16:52.76 at the Cardinal Invite, just barely missing the NCAA Regional qualifying mark. She would also set a best in the 1500m at the Big West Challenge Cup with a time of 4:32.44. At the Big West Championships she would nab a fourth place finish in the 1500m and then double back the same day in the 5k where she picked up a sixth place finish for UCSB.
2005 XC Recap: Moser opened up quickly by being the first collegiate across the tape at the home opener with a 5k XC PR (17:57). Unfortunately her season was cut a little short due to an injury...2005 T&F: Set personal bests at 800m and 1500m early in the season. She went on to finish 3rd, gaining All-Conference honors in the Big West Championship 10k final and then took 7th in the 5k final.

2004 XC Recap: Had a breakout season from start to finish. Hadas won the opening meet at the UCSB Lagoon in a 5K cross country personal best of 18:22.67 gaining her a spot on the travel squad. At the Big West Championships she finished 17th in a 6K personal best of 21:33.6. She went to Regionals and Nationals being the only Gaucho who did not race at the NCAA championship a year ago and improved from a year ago to be a consistent top 7, often displacing other programs' front 5.

2004 Track & Field Recap: Hadas qualified for the Big West Championships in the 1,500m as a true freshman...ran a personal best 4:40.99 in the Big West trials.
