After helping her club volleyball team win a national championship last summer, Mosser can say she’s had some pretty good weeks. But the explosive senior outside hitter said last week was probably the best she’s had as a high school player.
Mosser led the Cougars to a 7-0 record on the week. She had 20 kills and 16 digs in a three-set victory over Wayzata, then ranked No. 5 in Class 3A, and 30 kills in a victory over Eden Prairie. She averaged seven kills per set in five matches as Lakeville South won the prestigious Southwest Minnesota Challenge in Marshall. In the home victory over Wayzata, she notched her 1,000th career kill.
“It was a great win over Wayzata, we beat Eden Prairie, whom I’ve never beaten, and we won the Marshall tournament for the second time in a row,’’ she said. “That’s as good as high school week as I’ve ever had.”
Coach Stephen Willingham said that no less a volleyball authority than Marshall coach Dan Westby, a Hall of Fame member, gave gave the uber-athletic Mosser the ultimate compliment.
“She plays so high [above the net] that teams don’t get the chance to stop her,” Willingham said. “Dan said ‘Jenny just wears us down. We can’t maintain our level of defense against her,’ ”
