Position: Head Coach
Mary Moan has made an immediate impact on the Yale women's golf program. In four years she has guided Yale to two Ivy League titles and two NCAA Championship appearances.

In her first year, the Bulldogs had four top-three finishes, including a victory at the Princeton Invitational and a second-place finish at the Ivy League Championship. In 2001-02 Moan led Bulldogs to titles at the Yale and Princeton Invitationals in the fall and the Ivy League crown in the spring.

Prior to being named head coach at Yale, Moan served as an assistant coach at the University of Florida for two years. Moan, a 1997 Princeton graduate with an A.B. in history, played a major role in turning around a Florida program that placed 11th at the Southeastern Conference Championships in 1999 to one that tied for fifth in 2000 and placed 18th at the NCAA Championships.

Considered one of the finest female golfers from the Northeast, Moan won 16 collegiate tournaments at Princeton, including the 1997 Ivy League Championship, and was named to the 1997 National Golf Coaches' Association All-America team after advancing to the NCAA Championships as an individual. Moan was the first female golfer at Princeton to 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.

In addition to winning the 1997 Ivy League championship, Moan captured the 1996 ECAC title, the 1994, '95 and '97 New England Collegiate Championship and the 1996 Pennsylvania State Amateur Championship. During her college years, Moan also was a four-time Philadelphia Stroke Play Champion from 1994-97. In 1998 she was named to the Ivy League Silver Anniversary women's golf team.

A native of Far Hills, N.J., Moan was a distinguished junior golfer at The Pingry School, where she won the 1991 Philadelphia Junior Girls' Championship and was a 1993 American Junior Golf Association All-American. She received a Master's Degree in Exercise and Sport Sciences with a concentration in Sport Management from Florida in December of 2003.
