Gustavus Adolphus College Athletics Director Al Molde has announced that Scott Moe will become the head coach of the women’s golf team effective immediately. He is replacing Wayne Norman who has returned to his full time duties as the equipment manager at the College. Moe, who has been the head men’s golf coach for the past seven years, will now be the head coach of both the men’s and women’s golf programs.
A 1995 graduate of Gustavus, Moe has directed the men’s golf team to five MIAC titles in the past eight years. His squad has qualified for the NCAA Championships for seven consecutive years he has been at the helm and the team is currently ranked #1 in Division III in the Golfstat rankings. The Gusties have posted top ten finishes at the NCAA Championships for each of the past seven years, including top-five finishes three times.
Moe, will assume the controls of a women’s program that made its first ever appearance in the NCAA Championships last year and is currently ranked in the top ten in Division III. The squad is very much in the hunt for a second consecutive berth to the national tournament which will take place in Green Lake, Wisconsin in May.
A native of Elk River, Minnesota, Moe was selected MIAC Coach of the Year for men’s golf (in the spring of 2003), for the third time in his career. He was also honored in 1997 and 1998. Moe was named the Golf Coaches Association of America’s District Five Coach of the Year in 1996-97, 1997-98, 1998-99, and 2001-02.
A standout golfer for the Gusties from 1991-1995, Moe won three MIAC individual titles and played on four conference championship teams. He earned All-America honors in 1993 and 1995 and was named a GCAA All-American Scholar in 1995. In addition to his golf coaching duties, Moe also serves as an assistant men’s hockey coach at Gustavus.
Scott lives in St. Peter with his wife, Sarah, and son Logan.
