Cole Moore ’21 Commits to Bowling Green University
Cole Moore, a member of the 2021 graduating class at St. Michael’s College School (SMCS) has accepted a scholarship to Bowling Green State University (BGSU) to continue his hockey and academic journey.
“During my visit to Bowling Green, I felt an immediate connection with the coaching staff,” says Moore, a six-foot-five goaltender who will join the Falcons for the 2023-24 season. “They have a very historic and successful hockey programme and the campus facilities are excellent. Also, the atmosphere at Slater Family Ice Arena is second to none.”
Moore entered Grade 7 at SMCS in 2015, following in the footsteps of his father, Grant ’85.
“My family is grateful to have had the opportunity to attend St. Mike’s,” says Moore. “It is a special place and has prepared each of us for the challenges that lie ahead in our lives. I will always remember the great friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.”
While at SMCS, Moore’s over 90% average in Grades 11 and 12 earned him back-to-back Basilian Book Award honours. Further academic accolades came in Moore’s Grade 12 year, receiving the St. Thomas More Society Award for making the Honour Roll each year at SMCS. At BGSU, Moore plans to pursue a business degree through Bowling Green’s Schmidthorst College of Business.
“St. Mike’s has prepared me through a challenging six years of balancing academics and athletics,” says Moore. “The support I received from the school’s coaches, teachers, and staff over the years helped me develop as a player, student, and overall as a person. I feel my experience at St. Mike’s has prepared me for what is to come at Bowling Green.”
In addition to his academic and hockey prowess, Moore also played on several intramural athletic teams as well as U14 basketball and U14 golf. In his Grade 12 year, Moore joined the St. Michael’s Buzzers Jr. A hockey team after completing his AAA minor hockey career in the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL).
“Cole was an excellent student throughout his time at St. Michael’s College School,” says Moore’s former SMCS teacher, Joe Coccimiglio, who also serves as the trainer for the St. Michael’s Buzzers. “It was evident by Grade 10 that Cole was a very driven young man. He was a very mature and responsible student-athlete with a work ethic, attitude, and behaviour that was second to none.”
