Ximena Moore joined the Huntingdon staff in 2002 and became the head women's tennis coach in 2003. In that time she has taken the Lady Hawks tennis program to new heights at the NCAA Division III level.

In 15 seasons, her teams have an overall record of 186-94 and a 94-22 conference record in the USA South Athletic Conference (2014-present) and the Great South Athletic Conference (2003-2013).

Moore became the Lady Hawks' winningest coach in 2008, passing former Huntingdon coach John McWilliams' record of 63 wins.

The 2017 team was ranked as high as 20th in the ITA Atlantic South Region and posted a 15-6 record, finishing three wins short of the program's NCAA-era record for wins in a season. The 15 wins are the fourth most in a season by the Lady Hawks since 2003. The Lady Hawks were 6-1 in regular-season conference play and advanced to the USA South Athletic Conference Tournament semifinals for the second time in four seasons.

In four seasons in the USA South, Huntingdon has a 31-11 conference record and qualified for the conference tournament each season. The Lady Hawks have produced three second-team All-Conference players, one third-team All-Conference selection, two honorable mention All-Conference performers, one first-team West Division selection and two second-team West Division performers as well as 14 Academic All-Conference selections.

In 2014, the Lady Hawks' first season in the USA South, Huntingdon was 10-7 overall (8-3 in the USA South) and reached the conference tournament semifinals. The 2015 team began the season 10-0, finished with an 11-4 overall record (9-3 in the USA South) and reached the first round of the conference tournament. In 2016, Huntingdon was 12-6 overall (8-4 in the USA South) and again reached the first round of the conference tournament.

Prior to joining the USA South, Huntingdon competed in the GSAC for 11 seasons. Moore's teams placed third or better in the conference each season, posted a 63-11 conference record and reached the GSAC tournament finals each of their final seven seasons.

During their final season in the GSAC, the Lady Hawks set their NCAA-era record for wins with an 18-4 record. Huntingdon entered the GSAC tournament with a 10-0 conference record that season. From 2007-2013, Huntingdon won two conference titles and finished as the conference runner-up five times.

Moore has guided Huntingdon to the NCAA Division III national tournament twice. The Lady Hawks were 14-6 overall and unbeaten in the GSAC when they made their first NCAA tournament appearance in 2007.

Huntingdon defeated Meredith College for the school's first NCAA postseason victory. The team finished with a Top-25 Atlantic South Region Ranking by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. In 2008, Huntingdon returned to the NCAA tournament with a 12-7 overall record and another unbeaten season in the GSAC.

In 2009 and 2010, Huntingdon was undefeated in regular-season GSAC competition. From 2007 until 2011, the Lady Hawks put together a regular-season winning streak of 30 straight GSAC matches.

The 2009 and 2010 teams combined for a 27-10 overall record. The 2010 team, which was 16-5, was ranked as high as No. 10 in the ITA Atlantic South Regional rankings. The 2011 team was 11-8 and reached a No. 12 ranking in the ITA regional rankings. In 2012, Huntingdon was 16-5 and was ranked as high as No. 15 in the ITA regional rankings.

During the GSAC era, Moore coached 36 All-Conference players, 19 All-Freshmen selections, five conference Freshman of the Year, one conference Player of the Year and was named conference Coach of the Year four times (2005, 2007, 2010 and 2013).

In 2011, No. 1 singles player Katie Scott reached a ranking of 14th, the highest ever ranking for a Huntingdon women's tennis player. A total of 36 players were named to the GSAC All-Academic team.

The Lady Hawks have earned ITA All-Academic team honors 11 times since 2004, including 10 straight seasons from 2004-2013. The Lady Hawks have produced 49 ITA Scholar Athletes since 2004.

Prior to joining the coaching ranks, Moore was a standout player at Auburn University-Montgomery. During her four-years, Moore helped the Lady Senators capture the NAIA National Doubles Championships all four seasons, as well as earning the NAIA Team National Championships during her final three years. As a freshman, she won the doubles portion of the Rolex Tournament and was named "Player to Watch" in the NAIA. She also earned Honorable Mention All-America honors all four years.

Before joining the AUM team, Moore had a six-year playing career on the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) professional tour. Upon retirement, Moore ranked in the top 500 in singles and ranked 198th as a doubles player.

In 1996, Moore represented her home country of Colombia in the Fed Cup competition. In the junior rankings, she reached 83rd in singles and 17th in doubles in the world. In addition, she held the top singles ranking in Colombia at the age of 16.
