UND senior soccer captain Katie Moller has been named a 2018 Senior CLASS Award Second-Team All-American.
Moller had been one of the 10 national finalists for the Senior CLASS Award in women’s soccer, which honors NCAA Division I seniors who have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character, and competition. The award went to Ole Miss forward/midfielder CeCe Kizer.
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.
Moller finished with 15 goals on the season, finishing as the fourth most in a single season at UND as well as in Summit League history. Her 31 career tallies place her fourth all-time in the record books at North Dakota and finishes as the highest goal scorer in the Division I era. Her 35 points this season also broke into the record books, placing fourth in a single season for the Fighting Hawks and ranking fifth all-time in league history. Her 70 total points over her four-year career is just five shy of matching Loomis' mark for the most during the DI era at UND.
In the classroom, the West Linn, Ore., native is a communication and physics major who has been named to three consecutive Big Sky Conference Academic All-Conference Teams and was most recently named to the 2018 Summit League Academic All-League Team. In 2017, she became first player in program history to be named to the United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division I Women's Scholar All-West Region Team. Moller is also a four-year recipient of the Presidential Scholarship and is a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars. She also serves a teacher's assistant for math, a tutor at the Physics Learning Center at UND, and worked on a research project to help improve the English Coulee on campus.
An active member in the community, Moller has logged nearly 125 hours of community service during her four seasons at UND.
