University of Minnesota freshman Jessika Mozia has been selected as the 2012 Jim and Anne Dyde Award recipient. The award is given annually to the year’s outstanding Colorado high school female tennis player as selected by the United States Tennis Association (USTA).
A native of Littleton, Colo., Mozia dominated during her career at Colorado Academy. Mozia compiled an 86-5 overall record en route to two state championship titles (2010, 2012). As the No. 1 singles player at her high school, she captured multiple honors throughout her tenure, including four MVP awards, four All-League First Team selections, four Metro League First Team accolades, and was once named Denver Post Player of the Week. She also received the 2009-10 Bill Tolbert National Junior Award, Simms Alumni Athletic Award, and five USTA National Sportsmanship Awards.
Mozia currently leads the Gophers with a 7-4 singles record and a 6-3 overall record in doubles in three tournaments this fall. She took third in the singles bracket at the Gopher Invitational, second at the Wildcat Invitational in Evanston, Ill, and qualified for the ITA Central Regional Championship main draw this past weekend. In doubles play, she has claimed a championship title at the Wildcat Invitational, partnering with Aria Lambert.
Mozia will be presented with her award at the Colorado Tennis Hall of Fame Gala and Annual Awards Celebration on the evening of February 1st.
