Camanche's Moore to concentrate on tennis at UNI

Indians’ 3-sport standout chases third net title

CAMANCHE — Chelsea Moore never considered being one of those tennis players who escapes the Midwest for Florida and trains full-time.

She has too much fun with friends and other sports around here.

After years of balancing volleyball, basketball and tennis — along with non-athletic endeavors — and rarely being able to fit in tennis matches in the offseason, the always-busy senior at Camanche High School will specialize when she goes off to college in the fall. She has decided Northern Iowa is the place to go to continue her tennis career and education. She has signed a national letter-of-intent and accepted a scholarship offer from UNI.

“It’s not like a big school, but it’s not like a small school, either,” she said recently. “It’s right in the middle.

“I went on a visit in the summer. Sometime during the volleyball season I thought I was going to go there.”

Moore, who also visited Iowa State and said she liked NCAA Division III Coe College in Cedar Rapids, too, plans to study physical therapy in college.

“After four years I’ll transfer somewhere like Iowa for two years in the physical therapy program,” she said. “I have gone to physical therapy and thought it was cool, helping people with athletic injuries and stuff.”

The Panthers are getting a talented tennis player who also had success on the volleyball and basketball courts. Moore won Iowa Class 1A singles state titles as a freshman and sophomore for the Indians before being derailed by Dubuque Wahlert’s Sarah Dalton in the championship match last spring. In a few weeks she will begin her quest for a third state title.

“I try not to think about (last year),” Moore said. “I didn’t play my best and she played well. It happens. I’ve got to go out and try to get over it. I’m just going to try to go out and play my best.”
