Moore, ’13, Helps Great Britain Earn Bronze at European Championships

STOCKTON, Calif. - Former Tiger softball standout Amy Moore, '13, helped her Great Britain National Team earn a bronze medal this past weekend at the Women's Softball European Championships. The tournament, which took place in Bollate, Italy, featured 23 teams from around the continent competing over the eight day event. 

Moore led Great Britain to a 9-3 record in the tournament, putting together a .444 (8-for-18) batting average which was the third-best on the Great Britain squad. She also added six RBIs and five runs scored to go with three doubles and a pair of triples. Behind the dish the catcher had a perfect 1.000% fielding mark with 13 put-outs and one caught stealing. Moore made her international debut for Great Britain in 2012 when she helped guide the team to the finals of the Canada Cup Elite Tournament and a silver medal.

Moore currently ranks T-19th in Pacific program history with 27 doubles and is T-5th in RBIs with 111. In her second season donning the Orange and Black she helped the Tigers capture their first Big West softball title as she registered a .302 batting average to go with 38 runs batted in and 20 runs scored.  

With their stellar performance at the European Championships, Great Britain has earned a spot in the 2018 World Championships which will take place in Japan next summer. The team is also one step closer to qualifying for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
