Myrtle Beach, SC (WMBF) - Gabby Moore is a 17-year old junior on the Myrtle Beach Girls Varsity team. She's also a guard and the team's captain. Moore said she keeps the team informed with game dates and game wear. "I make sure everything is in place," said Moore.

 But when the season is over, Moore puts down the basketball and picks up the soccer ball. As the team's goalie, she says she loves stopping other teams from making a goal.

"It's really exciting knowing that I was able to stop the goal because at that point when they take a shot it's just you and that person. It's a lot of pressure but I trust my instincts," she said.

Sports are a big part of the junior's life, but so too are academics. 

Moore is a straight "A" student whose on the National Honor Society and loves taking a challenging math or science class.

I'm taking AP calculus and that class is pretty fun and I also like chemistry," she shared.

Those classes along with inspiration from her god-brother are the reason why she hopes to major in bio-engineering at UNC or Duke someday.

"I want to help people because my god-brother has a prosthetic leg. I've always been really interested in it; and he's amazing with it so it makes me want to help him and see how I can make it better," she said.

Making life better for others is Moore's foundation. She has plenty of volunteer hours under her belt and says she owes all her success to her loving and supporting mother.

If you know of a student who deserves to be in the student spotlight, maybe they have an extraordinary talent or exceptional grades - nominate them for the honor on our website. Every Thursday, WMBF News highlights a new student.
