Athlete Spotlight: Arin and Aricka Moore

Sisters, friends, teammates.

Arin and Aricka Moore are North Augusta High School seniors who are in the middle of their final high school volleyball season.

“We’re competitive,” said Aricka Moore.

The sisters use that spirit to try to get the edge over the other one on the court, but they both admit they can also work well together. And they help each other out.

“We definitely give each other feedback,” Aricka Moore said.

The two have been playing volleyball since fifth grade. They were introduced to it by their older sister.

“I like how fun it is,” said Arin Moore.

In a recent match against Grovetown, the Lady Yellow Jackets chalked up their first win of the season. They defeated Grovetown 3-1 on Aug. 31.

Arin Moore had eight kills and six aces during the matches.

Coach Kenneth Grier said the girls might be twins, but they are definitely not copies of the other.

“They are two different people – totally opposite,” he said.

Both of the Moore sisters have strengths that enhance the team.

“Arin is a strong athlete,” said Grier.

He expects the four-year varsity starter to make the all-state team this season; something he thinks she should’ve done last year as well.

“She missed it by one vote last year,” he said.

Aricka Moore has been on the varsity team for two years, after playing two years on the junior varsity squad.

“Aricka is a natural leader,” he said.

The Lady Yellow Jackets next volleyball game is at home against Spring Valley at 7 p.m. Sept. 9. The regular season ends Oct. 12 with matches at home against Aiken High School.

As soon as volleyball season ends, the Moores will remain on the North Augusta court and play basketball. Not only do they play for their high school team, they’ve played on a traveling basketball team as well.
