2015-16 (Junior)
Mosquera provided depth for the national runner-up Huskers as a junior in 2015. She saw action at the Warhawk Invitational, helping Nebraska to the team title.

She continued her strong work outside the lanes, as she was named to the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll both semesters. She was also named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team for her work in the community in 2016.

Mosquera was one of 20 Nebraska student-athletes to participate in the “No Filter” trip to the Dominican Republic in May of 2016. The group helped local communities by building a sports court, spending time with children and working with a muralist to create a mural on a community center building.

2014-15 (Sophomore)
Mosquera did not see game action in 2014-15, but worked hard to provide depth and improve her game for the Huskers.

Following the season, Mosquera was named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team for her work in the community.

2013-14 (Redshirt Freshman)
Mosquera made her collegiate debut for the Huskers at the Prairie View A&M Invitational. She came in as a reliever for NU and contributed to Nebraska's title in a loaded 12-team field.

She was a key contributor to important Husker wins throughout the season. At the Music City Classic, Mosquera delivered another clutch relief performance, as she left no open frames to help the Huskers to a fifth-place finish among 29 teams.

Mosquera earned academic All-Big Ten honors and was named to the inaugural Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2012-13 (Redshirt)
Mosquera joined the Nebraska bowling team after competing at a high level internationally. She redshirted her first year with the Huskers while making the adjustment to collegiate bowling.
