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.

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."
