The new head coach at the helm of the Brock Badgers’ cross-country program is no stranger to the University’s student-athletes.
Kevin Moore (BKin ’12) has served as head coach of the Brock track and field team since 2015, and assistant coach of the cross-country team for the past three seasons.
“Kevin has been a strong leader in our track and field program, and we look forward to him leading our men’s and women’s cross-country teams,” said Melissa Krist, Director, Brock Sports. “Kevin’s passion for the sport is rooted in student-athlete development, and he instills the values we want for our student-athletes.”
Moore is looking forward to coaching the team he ran for as a student-athlete at Brock.
“I want to make an immediate impact by building a strong distance running culture on campus that spreads into the community. Niagara has some of the best running talent in the province,” he said. “Coming out of the pandemic, we have an opportunity to re-establish standards and expectations, maximizing the potential of new and returning athletes.”
A St. Catharines native, Moore attended Brock University after graduating from Sir Winston Churchill Secondary School. He led the Bulldogs to two gold medals and a bronze at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) Cross Country Championships.
He also captured silver and bronze medals in the 3,000-metre race at the OFSAA Track and Field Championships.
As a Badger, Moore was named Cross Country Athlete of the Year twice.
“I feel that with my connection and history with the local running community, we can demonstrate to prospects that Brock has the academic options and distance running development they are looking for,” Moore said.
