Competing in the scholarship-laden BIG EAST Conference, Georgetown's tennis team has often found itself up
against highly talented opponents and ranked competition. In the fall of 1985, a non-scholarship student-athlete
from Dallas Jesuit arrived on the Hilltop and immediately began an extraordinary tennis career as a Hoya.
Lynn Moore played in the number one singles position for four straight years. He led his team from a season record
of 7-11 in his freshman year to 16-4 in his senior year and served as team captain during his final three seasons on
the Hilltop. At the end of four years, he had recorded 99 wins in match play and earned four MVP awards.
Lynn advanced to the BIG EAST tournament semi-finals and finals in his final two seasons and teamed in doubles to
win the Capital Collegiate tournament. He was named a BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete, an Academic All-America
and winner of a postgraduate scholarship. He received the 1989 Robert A. Duffey Scholar-Athlete Award,
presented annually to the senior who best exhibits excellence in both athletics and academics.
In recognition of his numerous achievements and his outstanding contribution to the winning spirit of
Georgetown tennis, the name of
H. Lynn Moore, C'89
is permanently inscribed in the Georgetown University Athletic Hall of Fame
among the names of the greatest athletes in the history of the University.
Given this day, the fourth of February, in the year of 2006.
