Lady Eagles Add PC Transfer for 2009-`10 Season
JEFFERSON CITY, Tenn. -- Guard Katlin Moore (Fort Mill, S.C.)
will join the Carson-Newman women's basketball team for the 2009-10
season, head coach Dean Walsh announced Wednesday.
Moore, a Division I transfer from Presbyterian College, will have two years of eligibility remaining after playing the last two seasons with the Blue Hose in Clinton, S.C.
"We are elated to be able to have Katlin join our team," Walsh said. "She brings us to a new level and is a perfect fit for our style of play. She also brings a competitive intensity level that can't be taught."
"Katlin can score in so many different ways and is an intense defender that loves to irritate her opponent. Katlin is a wonderful addition to an already strong recruiting class."
As a sophomore with the Blue Hose, Moore started all 29 games and led the team in scoring (12), assists (3.9), steals (1.9) and minutes played (36.9). She showed touch from behind the arc by sinking 30 three-pointers and was third on the team in rebounding with a 3.9 rebounds per game average. Moore fired in a game-high 20 points in Presbyterian's first-ever Big South Conference win against Gardner-Webb, and tallied a career-high 22 points against Charleston Southern.
Moore received All-Independent All-Newcomer honors as a freshman, averaging 9.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game. She led the Blue Hose in scoring seven times and posted double-digit scoring figures in 12 games, including a season-high 19 points against Stetson and scored 15 points against then-No. 7 Georgia.
During her career at Charlotte Catholic High School (N.C.), Moore was an All-Mecklenburg County and Queen City All-Conference selection and two-time team MVP. She averaged 18.5 points, 5.2 assists, 4.5 steals and 3.6 rebounds as a senior.
With the addition of Moore, C-N's signing class is now at seven. Moore joins signees Courdne Miles (Graham, N.C.), Dominique Jackson (David, Fla.), Candis Clear (Memphis, Tenn.), Natasha Phillips (Clarkrange, Tenn.) and Whitney Moody (Blountsville, Tenn.) and Cassie Bates (Fremont, Ca.).
The Lady Eagles went 19-11 last season, reaching the NCAA Tournament for the third time in five seasons.
