The accolades continue to roll in for Bishop England senior Mary Harriet Moore who was named S.C. Coaches Association for Women’s Sports Class 2A volleyball Player of the Year this week.

A four-year starter, Moore pulled in her fourth straight 2A state championship this season, leading the Bishops to 30 wins and a perfect 9-0 record in Region VI.

“It’s awesome to have our hard work pay off,” Moore said. “I didn’t really think about trying to win the award during the season but it felt great to be recognized.”

At 6-foot-1, the middle hitter and co-captain was a force this season, turning in a team-high 345 kills and 140 blocks to go with 44 aces off serve. Moore was named Region VI Player of the Year and was selected to compete in the North-South All-Star game last week where she led the South to a 3-1 win over the North as the Most Valuable Player.

Bishops head coach Cindy Baggot describes Moore as invaluable to her team’s success and says her development as a player and a leader over the past four seasons has been a integral part of the Bishop England’s ability to sustain its championship play.

“She’s a very smart player with really good court awareness,” Baggot said. “It’s unbelievable the way she sees things out there. She can mix it up with a balance of power and a soft touch. She’s really stepped up as a leader for us and pretty much controls the game.”

The award is voted on by high school coaches across the state. Each coach receives one vote. Moore was also voted as a preseason S.C. Basketball Coaches Association preseason top-five player. She’s still weighing several options, in both volleyball and basketball, concerning her jump to college athletics. She says she’s not leaning either way right now and expects to make a decision after the basketball season.

“Whatever she decides to do, I think she’ll have a great opportunity to make an impact on somebody’s program,” Baggot said. “She’s had a great high school career and is that type of player to be able to come in and make an impact for somebody next year.”
