Her previous best was 1.68m at the Weekly Relays on 24.07.16. Mosqueda will be looking to better this mark on Sunday at the Weekly Relay Finals.
My record last Sunday is 1.69..i did not expect that i can do it.
Mosqueda who is still eyeing a spot in the national team was wrongfully excluded from selection for the 2015 7th ASEAN School Games where she would have at least easily secured silver (1.56m) or even won gold (1.65m).

Narcisca Atienza now 37 is currently one of the oldest members of the national team. Atienza a former High Jumper who later switched to Heptathlon, took the silver medal in Heptathlon in the 2015 SEA Games.
Originally Mosqueda shared the junior record with Anjelica Janda and Aprilen Laudencia at (1.66m) also from FEU. Two fine young jumpers whose careers ended before they reached their full potential.
The score puts Mosqueda fifth on the all-time ranking list behind Atienza (1.81m), Corazon Magante (1.71m), Morena Gestiada (1.70m), and Marietta Rapadas (1.70m).
Mosqueda hails from Batad National High school Iloilo. She is the 2014 and 2015 Palarong Pambansa Champion in Secondary Girls’ High Jump, while coached by Emmanuel Tawie Pacardo.
