Anne Moelk guided the Bobcats to a 9-6 record this season.

ATHENS, Ohio - Anne Moelk has resigned her position as Ohio's lacrosse coach, Director of Athletics Thomas Boeh announced today. The fourth-year coach, who restarted the Bobcat program in 1999 and led it to a winning season this year, cited her intent to pursue personal interests.

"Coach Moelk has done a tremendous job in re-establishing a competitive lacrosse team here at Ohio," said Assistant Athletic Director Amy Dean, who has administrative oversight for the program. "Her dedication, energy, and commitment to her student-athletes has laid a firm foundation for the future success of this program. We are grateful for her hard work, and wish her all the best in her future endeavors."

Moelk posted a 21-29 record in her four years at Ohio. She led the Bobcats to an improved record in each of the seasons, including a 9-6 mark this year. She guided her inaugural team to a 1-5 record through an abbreviated schedule before posting a 3-10 mark in 2000. Last year, the Bobcats finished with an 8-8 record.

"Most importantly, I am proud of the progress we made as a team this year and as a program during my time," said Moelk. "I think the foundation has been set for the future of Ohio lacrosse. I definitely enjoyed my four years in Athens and I appreciate the support that was given to me by the administration and the other coaches. I have simply decided that I no longer want to be in the coaching profession."

A 1992 graduate of Denison, Moelk came to Ohio after spending two years as an assistant at Ohio State. She began her coaching career at her alma mater, serving as an assistant in both field hockey and lacrosse at the conclusion of her playing days. She was elevated to interim head coach for both programs for the 1995-96 academic year.
