Women's Tennis Head Coach Chuck Merzbacher announced today that Jessika Mozia will receive a full scholarship from the University of Minnesota for the 2013-14 academic school year.

"Jessika has worked so hard this year and has been a leader with the type of work ethic she displays each and every day," said Merzbacher. "I am very proud of her. She represents the University of Minnesota, her team, and her family in such a positive way. I look forward to Jessika being part of the bright future of this program."

A native of Littleton, Colo., Mozia joined the Golden Gophers in the fall of 2012 and has made an outstanding debut in her first season with the Maroon and Gold. With two matches remaining in the regular season, Mozia leads the team with a 21-15 overall singles record. Mozia also earned a spot competing in doubles and has amassed a total record of 15-16 while playing with five different partners. Playing mostly from the fourth and fifth singles positions and second and third doubles, she has been a key contributor in the team's nine victories.
