Caitlin Erickson Moore ’08, MBA ’12 is back on campus.
Moore, a lacrosse player who received All-America status her senior year at the University of Mary Washington, signed on this summer as head women’s lacrosse coach. She already had made a name for herself at UMW, both on and off the field.
When she graduated in 2008, Moore was Mary Washington’s career points leader (303) and its record-holder for points and assists both in a single season and in a single game, breaking the NCAA Division III points-per-game record with 7.94. She was a two-time All-CAC and All-Region selection and helped UMW to NCAA Tournament appearances in 2006 and 2007.
After receiving a bachelor’s degree in business, Moore spent two seasons on the flip side of UMW women’s lacrosse. As Eagles assistant coach, she led teams to NCAA appearances in 2009 and 2010.
“We are very pleased to welcome Caitlin Moore home to Mary Washington,” said UMW Director of Athletics Ken Tyler. He praised her performance in turning around the women’s lacrosse program at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va.
Hired as head Yellow Jackets coach in fall 2010, Moore led Randolph-Macon squads to progressively successful records of 7-10 in 2011, 8-10 in 2012, and a victorious 12-6 in 2013. She also was a finalist for IWLCA Region Coach of the Year.
Moore replaced her own UMW lacrosse coach, Dana Hall, who was promoted to UMW senior associate director of athletics.
