Mosher Named to Senior CLASS Second-Team

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – ( As one of the ten finalists for the Senior CLASS Award, redshirt senior libero Katie Mosher was named as a Second-Team All-American for the award on Tuesday.

Senior opposite hitter from Illinois, Liz McMahon was selected as the 2014 Senior CLASS Award winner for NCAA Division l women’s volleyball.

“I’m so proud of Katie for being part of the Top 10 in the country for this award,” FSU head coach Chris Poole said. “Katie had an amazing career. She was not only successful on the volleyball court by breaking the total dig record at FSU, but she was an incredible leader and role model on and off the court. The libero and setter positions often do not get the credit they deserve during a match, but I have always recognized the value of these positions. Our athletic department is very fortunate to have a shining star like Katie to represent our university.”

The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I volleyball coaches, national
volleyball media and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete
in Division I volleyball. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be
classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of
excellence – classroom, community, character and competition.

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior
CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their
platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

In addition to the honor, Mosher finished 2014 as an AVCA All-America honorable mention athlete, capturing First Team All-ACC accolades while becoming the FSU all-time digs leader with a tally of 2,123.

The three-year captain finished the season with 518 digs, which is the second highest total in school history, becoming the only Seminole to post four seasons inside the top 10 in digs.

Mosher was also the fourth Seminole to become a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award since 2012 (James Ramsey – 2012 Baseball, Kassy Kallman – 2013 Soccer, Natasha Howard – 2013-14 Basketball).

The Fort Myers, Fla. native plans to pursue a master’s degree at Florida State, following graduation in December.
