“I am very excited to take my basketball career to the next level like I always dreamed of,” said Orozco. “I chose St. Thomas because I love the energy and the environment they have on the team, and it is also close enough to home to where I can see my family easily.”
Orozco was introduced to basketball by her two older brothers and first began playing in seventh grade. She went in to play two years of travel with Bad Girls Basketball and then averaged 12 points per game during her senior year. The Colts went 11-9 and competed in Regionals after their run to the District Final.
Orozco credits her brother Alejandro as well as Coaches Don Calloway, Brenton Hankerson and Diane Guzman for helping her understand the game. She says her entire family loves the game of basketball, but Orozco will be the first member of her family to play in college.
She will join a team at St. Thomas University that won 11 games a season ago before falling in the Sun Conference Tournament to Florida Memorial University.
