SPRING HILL – Recent Bishop McLaughlin graduate Mandi Mohr is already moving on to the next phase of her young life but she picked up a little extra recognition for her high school soccer career this month.
Mohr, who graduated as Bishop McLaughlin’s valedictorian and excelled on the pitch, was named to the United Soccer Coaches’ 2017-2018 High School Scholar All-America Team. The 77-year-old organization, formerly known as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, name boys and girls scholar teams each year. Of the 83 total players making the cut this year, Mohr was the only Floridan.
Mohr graduated with a 4.62 grade point average and totaled 100 points as an attacking midfielder. It was the second straight year Mohr reached 100 points, scoring 85 goals over her final two seasons. She was also named to the United Soccer Coaches’ 2017-2018 High School Girls Winter All-Region Team.
According to a Bishop McLaughlin press release, Mohr is currently attending the University of Chicago and is a National Merit Commended Scholar. This season’s High School Scholar All-America Teams won’t be formally recognized until the United Soccer Coaches All-American Luncheon, held in conjunction with the 2019 United Soccer Convention, from Jan. 9-13 in Chicago.
Mohr will be one of two Pasco County soccer players honored at the January 2019 convention. Wiregrass Ranch graduate Ian Flores was named to the 2017-2018 Winter-Spring Boys High School All-America Team.
