FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Elizabeth Moore, a former track standout, will join the coaching staff at Colorado State. Head Coach Brian Bedard made the announcement on Tuesday.
"We are excited to have Liz back in our program, this time as a coach for the Rams," said Bedard. "She is very familiar with our program and our history here at Colorado State. Liz will be a huge asset in recruiting and give Bryan Berryhill some needed help with cross country and the distance program. Our staff is committed to moving our cross country team into national prominence and the hiring of Elizabeth Moore will be a huge step in the right direction."
Moore will assist with the middle distance and distance athletes during the track and field season while serving as an assistant for the cross country program in the fall.
Moore received her undergraduate degree at Colorado State while running for the Rams. During her time as a student-athlete Moore was a four-time NCAA qualifier in cross country, was a member of the 2002 NCAA indoor distance medley relay squad, and earned all-conference and all-region cross country and track honors from 1997-2002. She garnered several WAC and MWC Athlete of the Week honors through her career. Moore also was a member of the student advisory committee at CSU from 2000 to her graduation in 2002.
"I am very excited to be part of a program that has incredible potential to be consistently nationally ranked," Moore commented about her hiring. "It is such a blessing to have been able to compete for CSU and I feel so fortunate to be able to play a different role now as a coach in a program that I hold dear to my heart I look forward to giving back to a program that has afforded me so many opportunities over many years. It is an honor to be part of such an amazing coaching staff. I look forward to learning from some of the best coaches, motivators, teachers and role models in the nation, as well as contributing some of my own knowledge and experiences to the team."
