Moore has helped guide Huntingdon to the NCAA Division III national tournament twice since 2007. The Lady Hawks were 14-6 overall and unbeaten in the Great South Athletic Conference 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 region. The 2011 team was 11-8 and reached a No. 12 ranking in the ITA region.
Moore has coached 31 all-conference performers, 15 all-conference freshmen, four conference Freshman of the Year winners, one conference Player of the Year and has been named conference Coach of the Year three times (2005, 2007 and 2010). In 2011, No. 1 singles player Katie Scott reached a ranking of 14th, the highest ever ranking for a Huntingdon women’s tennis player. Thirty-two of Moore’s players have been named to the GSAC All-Academic team.
The Lady Hawks have been named an ITA All-Academic team for nine straight seasons and 38 players have been named ITA Scholar Athletes.
Prior to joining the coaching ranks, Moore experienced a standout playing career at AUM. 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.
