2011 (Sophomore):
Making a huge leap offensively in just her second year of play, Moore established herself as the top all-around catcher in the Big West in 2011. A First Team All-Big West honoree, Amy finished the regular season among the Big West's best hitters while rating as the top defensive players. Hitting in the heart of Pacific's order, Moore finished the season batting .302 while driving in 38 runs and scoring 20 runs. The sophomore found her power stroke as well in her second season, blasting seven home runs throughout the year, No. 6 among all Big West hitters and tying for No. 10 in Pacific single-season history. Additionally, the sophomore became the first player in Pacific program history to hit two home runs in the same inning as she slugged a solo home run and a two-run homer in the fourth inning of Pacific's 11-0 win over Cal State Bakersfield on Mar. 12. Defensively, Moore proved to be the top defensive catcher in the league as well, throwing out a Big West best 13 would-be basestealers while also picking off a conference-high seven runners. For the season, Moore posted a .990 fielding percentage after committing just three errors in 293 chances. She earned the Tigers' first player of the week award during the year as she took home the award on Feb. 28.

2010 (Freshman):
One of the top defensive catchers in the Big West, Amy proved to be a force to be reckoned with behind the plate in just her first season of collegiate action. Splitting time behind the plate with Pacific's senior catcher, Amy started all 54 games for the Tigers splitting time behind the plate and as Pacific's designated player. Despite the split in time, Moore finished the year with a conference-best seven pick-offs, with all seven coming against runners at second base. At the plate, Amy posted a .225 overall batting average while improving her numbers in conference by hitting .274. Overall, Moore finished the year with 12 RBI and nine runs scored while also adding nine doubles, a number which ranked second on the team.

High School:
An integral part of one of the top high school softball teams in the country, Amy graduated from Valencia High School in Valencia, Calif., in 2009. Playing for the No. 1 team in the nation, Moore was the starting catcher for the 2007 National Champion Vikings, playing alongside of current Tiger teammate Nicole Matson. As a sophomore, Moore hit .343 at the plate with nine RBI and nine runs scored, while also setting a national high school record for hits in a single inning with three in the fourth inning of Valencia's contest against Golden Valley HS on April 26, 2007. Defensively, Amy helped lead the team to an impressive 32-1 overall record. As a junior, Moore led the Vikings to yet another CIF Division I championship and a Foothill League Championship. During the season, Moore hit .262 with two homeruns, 20 RBI and 16 runs scored while throwing out nearly 70 percent of the runners she faced en route to her third consecutive all-league selection. In addition to all-league honors, Moore garnered recognition as a Second Team All-Valley Section and Second Team All-State selection. As a senior, Amy hit .333 at the plate while driving in 19 runs and scoring nine. Behind the plate, she was again a force to be reckoned with as she threw out 73.7 percent of would-be base stealers while allowing just five total stolen bases on the year. For her efforts, Amy earned first team all-league honors along with her second-straight second team all-state honors in her final season.

Amy Moore was born in Valencia, Calif., and is the daughter of Maria and Steve Moore. She has one older brother, Kevin. In her third year at Pacific, Amy is majoring in business.
