The University of Scranton field hockey head coach Colleen Moyer will be inducted into the Drew University Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday, October 11 at the Wyndham Park Hotel in Florham Park, N.J.
Moyer is a 2005 graduate of Drew and was a two-sport athlete for the Rangers, starring in both field hockey and softball. She is currently in her 15th season as the head coach of the Royals and broke the program record for coaching victories (154) earlier this season with a 3-0 win over Wilkes on Sept. 25.
During her career with the Rangers, Moyer helped lead the field hockey program to four consecutive MAC Freedom Conference titles and an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2004 that included a 2-1 win over New England College in the opening round. The Shavertown, Pa., native was named a Freedom Conference Tri-Player of the Year in 2004 and earned NFHCA Third Team All-American honors after tallying 16 goals and a single-season record 19 assists, a record that still stands today. Moyer finished her career with 151 points on 52 goals and 47 assists and holds the school record for career assists after starting 85 straight games for the Rangers. She also was a three-time All-Conference selection and served as a team captain during her senior year.
In softball, Moyer hit .305 over her four seasons and received NFCA Second Team All-Region honors as a sophomore after swiping a school-record 18 bases, which is a record that she now shares. She was a three-year starter for Drew and her 25 career stolen bases rank fourth in school history. The Rangers went 65-40 during that time and earned a MAC Freedom Conference Tournament berth in 2003.
Moyer's tenure as the head field hockey coach here at The University has been highlighted by 10 seasons of 10 or more victories as well as nine postseason berths including two Landmark Conference Championship game appearances. As previously mentioned, she broke the program record for coaching victories with the 154th win of her career on Sept. 25. A graduate of Lake-Lehman High School, Moyer has led the Royals to 13 plus wins in three of the last four seasons including a 15-3 campaign in 2017. 36 of Moyer's players have earned All-Conference honors during her career and eight have received All-Region distinction.
This season, Scranton is off to a 7-4 start including a 2-0 mark in Landmark Conference play after a 2-1 win versus Goucher on Saturday. The Royals return to action tomorrow night at William Paterson at 7 p.m.
Moyer also served as the head softball coach for the Royals from 2006-2011 and led the program to three Landmark Conference tournament appearances as well as a then-program record 27 wins in 2008.
