In a soccer match last season, Katie Moller received a pass and errantly kicked the ball down the field. She turned away, disappointed in her effort, only to hear her teammates shouting, “Goal!”

“This is why you always shoot,” Moller said, reminiscing about the game. “This is why no matter what, you take your chances because you don’t know what will happen. I think that was the epitome of my career here – no matter what, you need to keep trying.”

Moller has more than tried. She concluded her last season with 15 goals, an enviable tally that ranks fourth in the history of UND and the Summit League. Her career total of 31 scores is best in UND’s Division I era.

Moller is also a double major in physics and communications, and in her “free” time volunteers for a number of causes.
