Mosqueda, a 5-4 sophomore out of Windsor High, is third in the state in overall digs with 467 and her 5.37 average per set is fifth among the leaders.

Earlier this season in Week 5, Grossmont outside hitter Kate Bezer was also named the California state Player of the Week while also receiving the same honor from the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference.
