Isabel Moore is a unique South Central freshman with a skill for sending batters back to their dugouts disappointed. After leading the Falcons to a 20-1 regular season, Moore now is leading the charge in the 4-A state playoffs. Daily Relfector prep sports beat writer Jake Keator caught up with Moore to discuss her love for the game, and what it has been like to see success so early in her career.

Q: When did you discover your love of softball?

A: I started when I was five. I had a lot of fun when I participated in my first travel ball team. I think I was around eight or nine years old.

Q: What have your parents been like throughout your time playing softball?

A: They have been great, they’ve always kept me up and have supported me for everything I’ve always wanted to do. They have been to every game and they have really been with me through it all.

Q: After a 20-1 regular season and a current run in the postseason after a dominating year, what does it mean to you to see all of your hard work paying off?

A: It makes me feel great. It makes me think, “I’m so glad I kept doing this to help out my team.” It keeps me prepared for what I need to bring to the next game for my team.

Q: It’s only been one year for you playing high school softball. What have you learned playing with Coach Nicholson and your teammates?

A: I’ve learned they always want to help me out. They always want to help me win. They help keep me in a good mood and a good attitude. They always want to win.
