Usually around this time on a Thursday I am posting my gnomely weather projections and sometimes humorous recommendations on how to plan accordingly for your weekend. Some predictions accompany it but this week we interrupt my not so important message for news of a much more somber and serious nature.
Around 4 Tuesday afternoon, Freshman, female swimmer, Amy Marie Moxie of Simpsonville, collapsed while jogging. I’m assuming she was on campus with friends or other members of the team. She apparently passed away shortly thereafter at the hospital (unnamed in the ESPN.com report). Examination showed a heart condition that is next to impossible to detect prior to rearing it’s ugly head. Over extertion, excessive exercise, or any other places to point the proverbial finger can not be blamed for this as it is deemed a natural death according to the Pickens County Coroner.
While many of the readership will be making the journey to the area for Monday’s ball game if not the entire weekend to celebrate the beginning of the football season, let us not forget we have lost one of the newest members of the Tiger Family. An individual, not unlike the other memebers of any other Tiger athletic program, that we would have loved to write about in the coming years.
