Soddy-Daisy senior Savannah Moore has signed a letter of intent to play softball at Tennessee Temple University.

"It felt like it was going to be home there," Moore said. "I'll get a great education and also get to play softball, something I love. It's a win-win situation."

Moore can play outfield but primarily plays a more vital role as catcher for the 25-6 Lady Trojans.

"Savannah is a hard worker," Soddy-Daisy coach Wes Skiles said. "She's really stepped up as a leader. She's taken to that role, along with the other three seniors. I wish her the best at the next level, but I hate to lose her."

Temple coach Randy Crawford said Moore has received plenty of good instruction playing at Soddy-Daisy, as well as from coaches Travis Hale and Jim Murray on her select team, the Chattanooga Mystics.

"I believe that she will have a big impact on the team right away," Crawford said. "She is quick behind the plate and has a strong bat. Her character and work ethic make for the kind of student-athlete that we want here at Temple."
