Moore And Great Britain Take Silver At The Canada Cup Elite
Surrey, British Columbia - Playing in her first international tournament for Great Britain, Tiger senior Amy Moore helped guide Team GB to the finals of the Canada Cup Elite Tournament and a silver medal. Moore proved to be one of the top hitters for her national team as she finished fourth on the team in batting with a .300 average while hitting second for Team GB.
Throughout her first tournament, Moore showed off the skills at the plate that have made her a two-time all-conference honoree as she posted nine hits in 30 trips to the plate while tallying a pair of doubles. Batting second throughout the tournament, Moore put herself in position to score as she tallied seven runs in 10 games played while also stealing a pair of bases. She completed her first tournament with a .364 on-base percentage as she added a trio of walks to go along with her nine hits.
In addition to her time at the plate, Moore proved to be one of the most versatile defenders for Team GB as she played four different positions throughout the tournament. Spending a brief stint in the outfield, Moore, the Tigers' starting catcher, spent a pair of games behind the plate early in the tournament before finding a more permanent home at first base. When called upon due to illness, Moore even saw a stint at third base for the championship game, taking on the hot corner for the first time in her career.
With the Canada Cup over, Moore and Team GB will head to Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada for the 2012 ISF Women's World Championships from July 13-22.
