2022-23 averages: 11.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 1.5 blocks
Season highlights: The Trailblazers won zero games two seasons ago and notched just three last season, but coach Shawn Taylor’s group surged to a winning record this season of 12-11 as a group of young players continued to develop. A big part of that was Moore, who was a force for Overland in the paint and led her team in both scoring and rebounding. She upped her scoring average by 1.4 points per game from the previous season and had 10 games where she cracked double figures, topped by 21-point efforts against Aurora Central and Kennedy. Moore pulled down 17 rebounds against Aurora Central as well, which was one of her five double-doubles (points and rebounds). She earned selection to the A-Town All-Star Game for the second time, but did not get to play last season when the game was canceled.
Moore vs. Aurora teams: vs. Aurora Central (21 points, 17 rebounds, 2 blocks); vs. Gateway (11 points, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks); vs. Eaglecrest (1 point, 6 rebounds); vs. Grandview (11 points, 5 rebounds)
