It also didn’t hurt that RIC had a criminal justice program. Moore aspires to a career in law enforcement with an eye on the FBI.

“It seemed like the perfect fit for me,” Moore said. “And it has been. I’m looking forward to seeing it all play out.”

Notebook: Speakingof McNamara

Moore’s former teammate, Erin McNamara (West Newbury), a senior at Southern Maine, has the Huskies off to a 6-3 start with team-high averages of 12.4 points and 3.0 assists in 31.6 minutes per game. She erupted for 24 points in an 86-57 win at Maine-Farmington.

UMass Lowell junior Taelour Murphy (Salisbury) set two school records in her first meet of the season and was named the America East Conference Track Performer of the Week. Murphy captured the 200 meters in 24.21 seconds at the Boston University Early Opener. She also captured the 400 meters in 55.34.

Despite a trying season for the Wentworth Institute of Technology men’s soccer team (2-15-1), freshman Allan Eagan (Newburyport) made seven appearances and scored his first collegiate goal in a 5-1 loss to Gordon College. The Leopards roster has 15 freshmen and sophomores.

Former Governor’s Academy standouts Cody and Nathan Ferriero have the Northeastern men’s ice hockey team off to a 9-5-2 start and ranked No. 16 in the latest USCHO.com poll. Cody, a senior, has one goal and four assists while Nathan, a freshman, has five assists, including three in a 5-2 win at Merrimack Nov. 22.

Derek Freeman (Newburyport), a freshman on the Colgate ice hockey team, scored his first collegiate goal in a 5-2 loss to defending NCAA Champion Yale. Freeman has seen action in nine games for the Red Raiders, who are 5-3-2 in the ECAC (7-9-2 overall).

Mike Fish (Salisbury) and Kevin Holmes (Newburyport) look to boost the Fitchburg State hockey team from a 11-14-2 clip last season. Holmes has compiled three goals and three assists while Fish has made 10 appearances with three assists for the 5-7-0 Falcons.

Beth Castantini (Newburyport), a sophomore on the UMass Dartmouth basketball team, scored 14 points in a 91-50 win over Johnson & Wales, hitting 5 of 6 field goals and all four free throws.
