She hadn't competed her junior year because she wanted to focus on basketball. She missed being with her friends on the track team and thought sprinting would help keep her in shape before going to Duke University to play basketball, so she joined.
"I did track to have fun," Moore said. "I always had fun the two years before (leaving). It was fun to come back and run with my friends that I don't get to see during basketball season."
Her time with the Squires concluded Saturday after finishing 12th in the 100-meter dash at the PIAA Class AA Track and Field Championships at Shippensburg University. Her time of 13.03 seconds wasn't near her best, but she still holds the school record in the event and was part of the school-record 400 relay.
So ends the career of one of the best Hanover area athletes ever, one who also holds the YAIAA scoring record with 2,595 points.
Lehr asked Moore last summer to join the team because he didn't want to interrupt her basketball season. He offered that she just run sprints. After she spoke with her parents, Moore was in.
Her impact was obvious.
"The biggest thing is she's very intimidating for the girls we run," Lehr said. "When she gets in the blocks, she's an imposing figure to run against. She's the most muscular, athletic kid in our area."
Training for basketball conflicted with preparing for states. Moore began doing workouts, that her future coaches at Duke sent, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. They consisted mainly of lifting weights, shooting and running.
"A lot of running," she said. "More than I would do for track practice, actually."
She'll go to Duke on June 28 and start classes July 2. The Blue Devils have 10 practices during the preseason to prepare for a series of games in August in Europe. The trip will be her first out of the country since going to Mexico many years ago and forced her to get a passport, but she is ready to move on.
"I'm going to miss everybody at school," Moore said. "I want to leave now, but I'll wait a little bit longer. I'm pretty sure it's going to be awesome. It's time for me to grow up and meet the world and not be a child anymore, but a grown-up."
