Two San Clemente High School baseball players are set to take the next step towards donning the national team jersey at the COPABE Pan American Championship Tournament in September.

On June 24, USA Baseball announced that juniors Lucas Herbert and Kolby Allard earned a spot on the 44-player roster for the 18U National Team Trials. The trials will be held in Houston from August 23-29, after which the 44-player roster will be whittled down to 20. The final 20 players will represent the United States at the high-profile international tournament in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Herbert, a catcher, and Allard, a pitcher, earned their spot on the 44-man roster at the annual Tournament of the Stars in Cary, N.C. in June.

According to Baseball America, Allard stuck out nine batters in 4 2/3 innings at the showcase tournament. His fastball was clocked as high as 93 mph during his two outings. Herbert hit a home run and did not strike out in 12 plate appearances.

Herbert and Allard were two of 34 players who made the cut following the Tournament of Stars. Both players were recently named to the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Underclassman team.
