Moyer Earns All-America Honors
Moyer led the nation with 29 assists and finished the year with an Eastern University single-season record 63 points. She broke the old Eastern record of 16 assists in a year. No other player in the country had more than 19 assists. The senior forward from Christopher Dock High School finished the year with 50 points in her final twelve games to help the Eagles to climb to No. 15 in the NFHCA final regular season poll. She recorded a career-best five assists and scored a goal in the Freedom Conference Championship Game.
Moyer is a 3-time All-Region and All-Conference performer. In her four years at Eastern, Moyer and her teammates won four Freedom Championships and made four appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Moyer scored in regulation to help the Eagles to a 2-1 overtime win at No. 5 Franklin & Marshall College in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
Moyer's tremendous production was a critical component in an Eastern attack that ran roughshod over the second half of the season. Eastern outscored league opponents by a 55-17 margin. Jess Jaindl, Kelby Bolton, and Megan Bolton all recorded double-digit goals as the Eagles found the backboard a school-record 89 times. Kelby Bolton and Jaindl joined Moyer on the All-Region team and Bolton played in the NFHCA Senior All Star Game with Moyer this weekend.
