“Washington and Lee offers me an opportunity to pursue my dream of playing college soccer, and allows me to further my education at an elite university,” said Moore. “I loved the sense of community I felt when I was welcomed on campus and the incredible history of the school.”

Moore was a four-year varsity starter, senior captain and team MVP last season. He also plays club soccer for Wilmington Hammerheads FC and is a member of the N.C. ODP State Select Team.

“Trey’s savvy soccer brain, skill, and versatility will help our team in many ways,” said Washington and Lee Coach Michael Singleton.

The Generals went 11-5-2 last season and 6-4-1 inside the Old Dominion Athletic Conference. They were eliminated from the semifinals of the conference tournament to top ranked Roanoke.

After meeting and training with Jacksonville University Assistant Coach Julia Wiesner over two and a half years ago at Carolina Yacht Club in Wrightsville Beach, Trey Carraway reconnected with the staff at Jacksonville and will take his talents to the shores of northeast Florida beginning next semester.

The sailing team at Jacksonville is wrapping up its third year of existence, sits among the top five in national rankings and will be making its second trip to the National Championship Regatta this year.

“Trey comes to Jacksonville with many years of sailing, surfing and other watersports experience,” said Jacksonville University Sailing Coach Jon Faudree. “He’s sailed in many large natonal events and will be more than just a member of the team. Trey has a positive attitude and personality that will mesh perfectly with our current group of athletes.

“We look forward to him being a leader on the team as well as a spark to help promote all watersports at the university.”

The group is also leading the charge to bring other watersports including surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing along with kayak and canoeing to campus, according to Faudree.
