Nine Mariners Poised to Make Waves at the Collegiate Level
Nine, yes nine, Aptos Mariners signed their letter of intent on November 13, 2015 committing to play college sports next season.
These stellar student-athletes are the reason the Aptos Sports Foundation does what it does. Not only are they gifted athletically, their hard work and dedication has paid off and now they will be representing the Aptos community across the
state and country.
Maddy Bol will play for the University of Chicago’s indoor volleyball team. Her
two teammates Madi Dueck and Karsen Welle are both on their way to UC
Berkeley, Dueck as part of Cal’s inaugural Pac-12 sand volleyball program, and
Welle will join the Lady Bear nationally ranked crew team.
Both baseball standouts, Jack O’Boy and Jack Harris signed letters of intent at
UC Davis and San Francisco State respectively.
Natalie Wendt will compete on Fresno State’s equestrian team and Ana Calero
will join the Spartan Women’s Soccer team at San Jose State.
Continuing the strong Aptos High running legacy, Mattie Peoples will compete for
the UC Santa Barbara women’s track and cross country team.
Finally, Christopher Staka who won the 100-meter backstroke at the CCS
Swimming and Diving Championships will swim for the University of Alabama.
These outstanding seniors as well as other student-athletes still competing for
Aptos High School will be our future community leaders in some form or another
and ASF hopes to continue to provide a quality student-athlete experience for the
youth of Aptos for generations to come.
You can be a part of that transformative growth at the high school, junior high
school and youth sports programs through the Foundation’s charitable giving
