Each week, the BoCoPreps.com staff will highlight a handful of active local athletes from a variety of NCAA sports, catching up on where they are in their respective collegiate careers and any recent accomplishments they may have had.

Soccer

• Savannah Beecher, Fairview Class of 2014: Beecher has been a staple in Central Michigan's lineup since her true freshman season, playing as a defender or holding midfielder. Her senior season has seen her start seven matches, and she actually scored her first collegiate goal this past week in a win over Mount St. Mary's. Majoring in exercise science, she has already earned academic all-league honors for CMU.

• Hailey Mazzola, Broomfield Class of 2015: After seeing her first game action last year at Arizona (appeared in 11 games overall), Mazzola is starting to work in more minutes for the Wildcats off the bench as a redshirt sophomore. Mazzola scored her first career goal in a 2-0 win over Oklahoma back in August and has helped the team to a 3-2-2 mark so far.

• Quinn Liebman, Boulder Class of 2015: The 2014 BoCoPreps.com player of the year went to Old Dominion out of high school but has since transferred to Gonzaga where he plays midfield. A redshirt sophomore, Liebmann has one start and four games played under his belt for the Bulldogs, which sit at 4-3 overall so far.

Football

• Clint Sigg, Longmont Class of 2015: Originally a student at Davidson (N.C.), Sigg transferred to the University of Sioux Falls before the 2016 football season and converted to tight end from quarterback. Last year he appeared in eight games for the Cougars registering six catches for 64 yards and also throwing a touchdown pass. The sophomore has yet to make a reception in three games this year, but USF is 3-0.

• Mitch Webster, Silver Creek Class of 2015: Now listed at 6-foot-2 and 235 pounds, Webster is doing work for Augustana (South Dakota) as a linebacker in his redshirt sophomore season. Just three games into 2017, the former Raptor has not registered any statistics for the 2-1 Vikings.

Volleyball

• Becca Mau, Longmont Class of 2014: After appearing in 287 sets and racking up 719 career kills for Idaho, Mau recently transferred to the DU Pioneers for her senior season. In six sets played so far this year, Mau is hitting .444 with eight kills for the 9-3 Pioneers, and she'll look to get more involved as the Sun Belt Conference heats up.
