Farmington Tigers senior Ellie Moser was announced as the district's 2018 St. Paul Area Athena Award winner at the end of February. The Athena Award, according to a release put out by Farmington schools, "honors female high school seniors for their outstanding athletic achievements."

Moser has played hockey and tennis throughout her high school career and was named a captain for both teams. In hockey she was named All-Conference four times (2015-2018) and was also named All-State for her senior year. On top of those awards, she also attended the USA Hockey "Top 66" U18 Select Camp in 2016 and 2017. In tennis, she is a four-time varsity letter winner and was All-Conference Honorable Mention in 2016.

Beyond high school, Moser has earned a scholarship to and is signed on to play Division 1 hockey at Bemidji State University next fall. All Athena Award recipients are honored at a luncheon on Wednesday, April 25.
