Ty Moore headed to Poland

You have to give former Southwood and Lady Techsters basketball standout Ty Moore a lot of credit. She is making a huge sacrifice to continue her playing career post-graduation.

Currently playing in the Women's Blue-Chip Basketball League in Shreveport, the 6-foot-2 post will head to Poland in August to play in a league that doesn't exactly get a lot of media attention in the states. She'll make about $2,000 per month, tax free, and gets a free apartment that she'll share with a Polish player.

Moore will spend 6 to 8 months in the hinterland, depending on whether or not her team makes the playoffs. She'll leave her youngster at home under the charge of her parents and the youngster's father. She gets two, round-trip airline tickets, which means she can fly home at Christmas or she can let someone fly over to see her.

That's what you call sacrificing to pursue your dream.
