RICHMOND, Ind. — Earlham College Athletics Director Mike Bergum announced on Friday
that Heather Moore will be the next head field hockey coach for the Quakers.
"It is exciting to introduce Heather to the Earlham community and the athletic
department," Bergum said. "She brings quality experience to our coaching staff,
which will enhance the future of our field hockey program."
Moore comes to Earlham after serving as an assistant coach at Colgate University
during the last three seasons.
"I am very excited to take over the Earlham Field Hockey program and feel this will
be a great opportunity in my coaching career," Moore said. "As I head into my first
season, I am hopeful that we will be competitive within the North Coast Athletic
Conference and have a chance to show our intensity and passion on the field."
Prior to her experience at Colgate, Moore was an assistant field hockey and lacrosse
coach at SUNY-Oneonta for two years.
Moore has worked with the U.S. Field Hockey Association since 2005 as an assistant
and head coach serving the Binghamton, N.Y. area.
A 2008 graduate of Colgate with a Bachelor of Arts in History, Moore was a four-year
letterwinner in field hockey for the Raiders. The New York native was a defender
during her career and she was All-Patriot League First Team performer in 2007, while
earning a spot on the all-tournament team. She was also on the Mideast Region Second
Team as a senior. As a junior, Moore was a member of the all-conference second team.
She led the Raiders with five assists as a sophomore.
Moore and her husband Jeremy will be moving to Richmond soon as she begins her
tenure as head coach immediately.
