Libby Moore commits to UNC
Libby has verbally committed to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for the Official Women's DI Soccer team. She told CFA, “My coaches at CFA (Meade McFarlane and Chris Meehl) have been very supportive of me throughout the past few years as I went through the recruiting process. McFarlane helped me improve my technical ability as well as gain confidence in myself that I lacked. McFarlane's positivity and belief in me has inspired me to be a better person with everything that I do, in soccer and in life. I chose to commit to UNC because my dad was a tar heel and it has always been my dream to play for UNC!”
