Mary Moan, a former All-American golfer at Princeton University, enters her second season as the assistant women's golf coach at Florida. A 1997 graduate of Princeton with an A.B. in History, Moan was a four-year letterwinner and senior team captain for the Tigers during the 1996-97 season.
Considered one of the finest female golfers from the northeast, Moan won 16 collegiate tournaments at the Ivy League institution and was named to the 1997 National Golf Coaches' Association (NGCA) All-American Team after advancing to the NCAA Championships as an individual. Moan, 24, was the first female golfer at Princeton to ever participate in the NCAA Championships and be named a member of the East team in the prestigious East-West Match competition at the NCAA Championships.
"I'm really enjoy being a part of a program that is so committed to women's golf," said Moan. "It is an honor to be a part of a team that has a great tradition and which will compete for the national championship in the years to come."
Included in her tournament championships, were the 1997 Ivy League Championship, the 1996 Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championship, the 1994, '95, and '97 New England Collegiate Championship, and the 1996 Pennsylvania State Amateur Championship. During her college years, Moan was also a four-time Philadelphia Stroke Play Champion from 1994-1997. Moan is featured in the "Silver Era Golden Moments...A Celebration of Ivy League Women's Athletics."
"I'm very excited that Mary is part of our program as assistant women's golf coach," said head coach Jill Briles-Hinton. "Mary's commitment to academic excellence along with her outstanding collegiate and amateur golfing achievements is a huge asset for our golf program."
A native of Far Hills, N.J., Moan was a distinguished junior golfer at The Pingry School where she captured the 1991 Philadelphia Junior Girls' Championship and was a '93 American Junior Golf Association All-American.
