Each month, The Summit League will feature outstanding student-athlete performances from a selected institution as recognized by its Faculty Athletic Representative. The September installment of The Summit League Scholar-Athlete Spotlight features three student-athletes from IUPUI.
Perez Agaba, Soccer
Eligibility Year/Hometown: Sr./Kampala, Uganda
Major: Biomedical Engineering
IUPUI senior men's soccer standout Perez Agaba has easily distinguished himself as one of The Summit League's top performers, both athletically and academically. He enjoyed a breakout junior season in which he totaled four goals and two assists and was later named an ESPN First Team Academic All-American by CoSIDA. He became IUPUI's first men's soccer first team All-American since 2003 and The Summit League's first since 2004. However, it was only the tip of the iceberg in terms of accolades for the Uganda-native. He was picked as The Summit League Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year during the spring, garnering the top award given by the league annually. He also collected second team all-region and second team All-Summit League honors in 2010. For his career, he has totaled 11 goals including five game-winners and contributed six assists. Agaba began his career by being named to the league's All-Newcomer Team in 2008 after tallying three goals and an assist. Known for his ability to score clutch goals, the 5-foot-10 striker has routinely ranked among the league leaders in game-winners throughout his collegiate career. Last spring, he earned the IUPUI Michael A. Carroll Scholarship based on his commitment to community service, leadership and academic prowess. Most recently, he was the lone Summit League soccer student-athlete to be named among 30 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award. He intends on attending medical school following completion and later practicing medicine in the United States. Ultimately, he would eventually like to open medical clinics back in his homeland of Uganda.
Kalyse Reimbold, Volleyball
Eligibility Year/Hometown: Sr./Carmel, Ind.
Major: English Education
For three years, Kalyse Reimbold has served as a pillar for the IUPUI volleyball program. Entering her senior season, she ranks among the elite outside hitters in school history, having surpassed the 1,000-kill mark in the final match of her junior year. In 2008, she earned a spot on The Summit League's All-Freshman Team after ranking fourth in the league in kills per set and leading the Jaguars in total kills. She continued to shine as a sophomore, ranking fifth in the league in kills per set and was later voted second team All-Summit League. She posted 23 double-digit kill outings and upped her blocking numbers across the board. Her junior year, she became just the second player in school history to reach 1,000 kills prior to becoming a senior. She ranked second on the squad in digs and was tops among the Jaguars in service aces. In the classroom, Reimbold has been a model student, earning a spot on IUPUI's Academic Advisor's List all six semesters of her college career. Upon graduation, she intends on teaching at the high school level and coaching volleyball.
Ivan Mojsejev, Tennis
Eligibility Year/Hometown: Sr./Novi Sad, Serbia
Despite being on the IUPUI campus for just one year thus far, senior men's tennis standout Ivan Mojsejev has certainly made an impact on the program. In his first season since transferring from Chicago State in 2010, Mojsejev earned All-Summit League honors after going 4-2 against league foes from his No. 1 spot in the lineup. Known for his gritty play on the court, the Serbian-born Mojsejev went 11-10 overall in doubles play. Also known for getting stronger as matches go longer, the 5-foot-8 grinder went 9-2 in three-set matches as a junior. He finished the season tied for second on the team with 16 wins, eight of which came from the No. 1 slot in the lineup. Academically, Mojsejev has maintained a 3.82 grade point average while studying marketing in the prestigious IU Kelley School of Business. He intends on pursuing a job in international business after graduation.
