SEWARD, Neb. – One of the key figures in leading the 2021 Concordia University Softball team to a national tournament appearance, Camry Moore earned recognition from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) on Friday (May 28). Moore has been named by the NFCA as an NAIA All-Region III First Team selection. The Crete High School alum excelled both at the plate and in the circle while also maintaining a high grade point average in the classroom.

A 2021 first team All-GPAC performer, Moore starred as one of the top two-way (pitcher-hitter) players in the entire NAIA. This past season, Moore went 20-6 with a 1.78 earned run average while recording 116 strikeouts in 157 innings (30 pitching appearances). She walked just 14 batters the entire spring. She became the fifth pitcher in school history to win at least 20 games in a single season. At the plate, Moore paced the team with a .386 batting average and notched 12 doubles, three triples, seven home runs, 41 RBIs, a .435 on-base percentage and a .664 slugging percentage.

Moore emerged as an immediate impact player when she arrived in Seward as a freshman. In 66 career pitching appearances, Moore owns a 39-16 record to go along with a 2.11 ERA in 344.2 innings. As a hitter, she has batted .367 (110-for-300) with 22 doubles, 14 home runs and 85 RBIs. At nearby Crete High School, Moore led her team to a state championship as a senior.

The all-region teams honor softball student-athletes from the Association’s six regions with first- and second-team selections. NFCA member head coaches from each respective region vote on the teams, and all student-athletes now become eligible for the 2021 NFCA NAIA All-America squads. The 2021 NFCA NAIA All-America teams will be announced on Wednesday, June 7.
