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.
• Sariah Orocu, Skyline Class of 2016 and Kelsey Martin, Mead Class of 2016: The two Longmont area players may have been former rivals but are now teaming up at Div. I Arkansas-Pine Bluff, with Orocu playing keeper and Martin playing the midfield. Orocu earned her first win of the year this past weekend with seven saves as UAPB beat Jackson State, and Martin has logged over 650 minutes in the team’s nine games. Both are true sophomores.
• Danelle Dondelinger, Centaurus Class of 2014: Now a senior at CSU-Pueblo, Dondelinger is a three-year starter in the midfield and has been playing a lot of minutes as the Thunderwolves are 4-4-1 right now. Her career includes 51 starts and she’s scored six goals with two assists, and that includes a goal and both of those helpers this year.
• Logan Bock, Boulder Class of 2013: It’s been an injury-riddled career for the former Panther at the Colorado School of Mines, but Bock is back healthy and making an impact for the Orediggers’ defense. In five games, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound redshirt junior has registered 11 total tackles with four of them going for loss (two total sacks, as well).
• Anders Hill, Fairview Class of 2014: A once-struggling Columbia football team is 3-0 in 2017 after having just edged nemesis Princeton, and Hill is playing at a high level as the team’s senior quarterback. He has a QB efficiency of 145.5, tossing for 757 yards and seven touchdowns against three interceptions for the upstart Lions. For his career (11 starts), Hill surpassed 3,000 yards and has 18 TD’s.
