Elizabeth Moore enters her first year as assistant coach for the Rams. She assists 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.
This fall, Moore assisted Bryan Berryhill in leading the Ram women to their first-ever Mountain West Conference championship, Mountain region championship, and a 15th finish at the NCAA championships. The Rams beat Brigham Young for the conference title for the first time in 20 years, then followed up by winning the Mountain Region Title over BYU, Colorado, Northern Arizona, and Texas Tech for the first time in history. CSU was ranked as high as 11th in the nation during the cross country season.
Moore received her undergraduate degree in health and exercise science with a minor in Coaching 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, a member of the Mountain West Conference Champion indoor distance medley relay team in 2000, 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 was an assistant cross country and track coach at Rocky Mountain High School for three seasons, during which time the girl's track team was the state runner-up, and the cross country team was a top contender at the state meet.
"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. 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."
Formerly Elizabeth Roodell, she is married to Brent Moore, a P.E. teacher at Putnam Elementary and head swim coach at Poudre High School in Fort Collins.
