     NEW ORLEANS — State track champions Joseph Moses III of Baton Rouge, La., and Carlie Calais of Breaux Bridge, La., signed athletic scholarships Wednesday with Xavier University of Louisiana.
     Moses, competing for Christian Life Academy, was the Class 1A outdoor champion in the 100- and 200-meter dashes in 2013 and ran the first segment on the 800-relay squad which placed second. He is the son of XU track and cross country coach Joseph Moses.
     This past week, Moses won District 6-1A titles in the 100 (10.77 seconds) and 200 (22.14).
     Calais, competing for Cecilia High School, was the 2013 Class 4A outdoor champion in the 800-meter run and placed third in 2012. In February she placed eighth in the 800 at the Division I state meet. On Thursday she posted her best outdoor time in the 800, 2:19.78, in a victory in the Region II-4A meet. At the District 5-4A meet, she repeated as district champion in the 400 and placed second in the 800.
     Calais is a 4.0 student and will be a pre-pharmacy major at Xavier. She also will compete in cross country for the Gold Nuggets.
     "Carlie is a great student-athlete," Cecilia coach Logan Duplechein said. "Her work ethic is what separates her from others. She has truly gotten better on the track from year to year."
     Moses and Calais are the first to sign with Xavier track for 2014-15.
