Growing up in a house with three brothers and four sisters that were all involved in athletics meant sports weren’t just a hobby in the Mohr household, they were a way of life.

Coach Mohr would develop into an outstanding multi-sport high school athlete at La Reina High School. As a senior, Mohr led her basketball team to the 1983 Southern Section Class 1A basketball championship, while earning both CIF-SS and National Catholic Player of the Year honors. In addition to her outstanding play on the hardwood, Mohr earned All-CIF as the starting shortstop on her high school softball team, and All-CIF cross country honors. In 2004, the Ventura County Sports Hall of Fame inducted Mohr for her memorable high school career at La Reina High.

Long Beach State head coach Joan Bonvincini took interest and offered Mohr a full-scholarship to play for the nationally ranked 49ers. By her junior season, Mohr was named team captain and starting point guard. Her 182 assists still rank her fourth on the single season record book. In Mohr’s senior campaign, the 49ers made history by becoming the first LBSU team to reach the NCAA Final Four after an inspiring season that included a Pacific Coast Athletic Association crown and No. 4 ranking in the national polls to close out the season. Coach Mohr was inducted into the Long Beach State Hall of Fame in 2011. 

After graduating from LBSU with a bachelor’s in Physical Education, the 23-year-old began her coaching career. Coach Mohr now has over 25 years of experience at all levels. She coached alongside Jelly Bean Bryant and Michael Cooper with the LA Sparks. She has NCAA Division 1 level coaching experience with Long Beach State and Santa Clara. Coach Mohr also has high school head coaching experience from her years with Long Beach Wilson High School. 

Coach Mohr has now found her home here at Cypress College. Since 1998, she has racked up over 350 victories, seven Orange Empire Conference Championships, three OEC Coach of the Year Awards, seven Regional Finals appearances, and a 2005 State Championship.
