CHESTERTOWN, Md. — Washington College Director of Athletics Thad Moore will be inducted into the Maryland Athletic Trainers' Association (MATA) Hall of Fame this Saturday following the organization's annual state symposium at Towson University. Moore served as the College's Head Athletic Trainer prior to taking over as athletic director in August 2016.
Moore's induction is in recognition of his "dedication to Washington College, the Maryland Athletic Trainers' Association, and the athletic training profession," according to a letter written by Peter J. Kotz, chair of the MATA Honors & Awards Committee. Moore was "nominated by his peers and overwhelmingly met the criteria for the award."
Moore was hired as Head Athletic Trainer at Washington College in 2000 and served in that role until his promotion to Athletic Director. From 2010 until 2016, he also served as Assistant, Associate, and finally Deputy Athletic Director. He received the MATA Most Distinguished Athletic Trainer Award in 2012 and a Service Award from the Mid Atlantic Athletic Trainers' Association (MAATA) a year later. In 2014, he was named the Division III Athletic Trainer of the Year by the College/University Athletic Trainers' Committee (CUATC) of the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA) and received a NATA Service Award. In February of that same year, he was one of four recipients of the College's annual Presidential Distinguished Service Awards.
