Dorothy "Dotty" Moore lettered in six sports at Willamette before graduating in 1941, but her biggest accomplishment in athletics came three years later. Moore played catcher on the 1944 Lind-Pomeroy Florists national championship softball team, which was inducted into the Oregon Sports Hall of Fame in 1985. In the championship game, she scored the game's only run in the bottom of the 11th inning as the Portland team stunned host Cleveland, Ohio in front of over 10,000 fans. Lind-Pomeroy shut out all five of its opponents in the World Series, a record that stood for 23 years. Moore played softball for 21 years and wound up her career with her own team- Dotty Mooreís Pennant Shop-which won the Northwest Regional title in 1954. She also played on several basketball teams that won regional titles.
