WHY MORENO CHOSE SANTA CLARA: I was born into a family that went to Santa Clara. I grew up thinking that Santa Clara was the only school that existed. It was an absolute dream to get the opportunity to attend a prestigious school like Santa Clara. It is an even bigger honor to play the sport I love for the school of my dreams. I feel like I am at home whenever I step on campus and there is no place I would rather spend the next four years of my life.
