Diving Coach Moore Inducted to Springfield Hall of Fame

Rhode Island diving coach Lindsay Moore was inducted into the Springfield College Athletics Hall of Fame Saturday, Oct. 13.

Moore ranks as one of the best divers in Springfield women's diving history. She won the national title for 1–meter diving in 2002. She was named the 2002 NCAA Division III Women's Diver of the Year. During her career, Moore was a four-time NCAA Division III national runner-up, eight-time All-American, five-time New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference Champion, and a two-time NEWMAC Diver of the Year.

"We are very proud of Lindsay.  Her outstanding diving career at Springfield was clearly brought in focus by this award," said Mick Westcott, Rhode Island swimming and diving head coach. "Her remarks last night, as well as her written statement in the award's program, clearly tell us a lot of all that she brings to our swimming and diving program."

Moore earned a degree in Movement and Sports Studies from Springfield in 2002, with a minor in athletic coaching. She was a team captain in her junior and senior seasons and was named Outstanding Female Individual Athlete of the Year four times.

"Lindsay was always a consistent and incredibly driven competitor," said Springfield College diving coach Peter Avdoulos. "Her national championship, together with four national runner-up finishes, certainly secures her place in history as Springfield College's most successful diver. I truly enjoyed working with Lindsay throughout her career."

Moore is entering her 11th year with the Rams, where she directs and manages all aspects of the recruiting program. The team opens the season against Maine at the Tootell Aquatics Center, Friday, Oct. 26.
