Softball Signs Junior College Transfer Nicole Moojen
July 22, 2005
SEATTLE-- Nicole Moojen (pronounced Moo-yen) has signed a letter of intent to play for Washington next season, head coach Heather Tarr announced today. Moojen, a native from Wistminster, Calif., played shortstop for Cypress Junior College and was a two-time JuCal Transfer All-State selection. She chose Washington over Oklahoma State, Ohio State, Kentucky and Auburn.
'I'm excited because I get to compete in the Pac-10,' said Moojen.
Moojen batted .440 with six home runs, 45 runs scored and 33 stolen bases during the regular season and led Cypress to the state tournament. She was also a two-time MVP of the Orange Empire Conference, sharing the honor in 2004 with Fullerton shortstop Celina Rubalcaba.
Moojen took trips to Auburn, Oklahoma State and Washington. Ohio State, Colorado State, Kentucky, Nebraska and UC Davis also showed interest in her during the course of the season.
Moojen looks forward to playing closer to home and hopes the Huskies can get back to the College World Series.
'I'm happy because my family can now watch more games and get to see me play,' said Moojen. 'Washington is a good program and should have a good chance at making it to the World Series.'
