Kevin Kim of Fullerton has been named to the U.S. National junior tennis team for the second consecutive year.
The team is part of the U.S. Tennis Assn.'s development program. Twelve players--six boys and six girls--are selected. They receive coaching, training assistance and help with travel expenses. They also represent the U.S. team in various tournaments.
Allison Anderson, a 5-foot-10 setter from Esperanza, has orally committed to attend St. John's, Esperanza volleyball Coach Kurt Kersten said Tuesday.
Anderson has been on the Aztec varsity for three seasons and a starter since she was a junior. She was named first-team All-Sunset League last season.
Other oral commitments:
* Michelle Sarkees, a setter for Santa Margarita High, plans to sign a letter of intent today with San Jose State, Eagle Athletic Director Richard Schaaf said. Sarkees was a first-team All-Sea View League selection after leading Santa Margarita to the league co-championship and the first round of the Southern Section Division I playoffs.
* Andy Bailey, a driver from San Clemente, will play water polo at UCLA, Triton Co-Athletic Director Jon Hamro said. Bailey was an All-South Coast League and All-Southern Section selection.
* Andrea Sievers, a defender for Los Alamitos, will play soccer for Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Griffin Coach Rich Manning said. Sievers was a first-team all Sunset League selection last season, when she led Los Alamitos to the quarterfinals of the Southern Section Division I tournament.
Today is national letter of intent signing day. It's the first day seniors planning to play football, soccer, girls' volleyball, water polo or field hockey in college can sign with a school. The signing period continues through April 1.
