Sears Picks up Offer From Northwestern, Frohner Commits
San Clemente soon-to-be senior quarterback Jack Sears picked up an offer from Northwestern University while on an unofficial visit to the school on April 2, according to head coach Jaime Ortiz.
Sears now holds 14 offers. The Northwestern offer comes on the heels of an offer made to Sears by the University of Arizona on March 24.
Ortiz said that Sears was scheduled to visit Harvard, Boston College and Duke this week. Sears currently holds an offer from Boston College.
San Clemente all-league safety Andrew Frohner committed to play collegiately at California Lutheran University this week, according to Ortiz. Frohner was a major key in the Tritons’ secondary during his junior and senior seasons. In 2015, Frohner recorded 69 total tackles and a team-high four interceptions.
Volleyball Sweeps Wolverines
As a final tune-up before a week’s hiatus from competition, the San Clemente boys volleyball team defeated Aliso Niguel in a nonleague match on March 31. The Tritons won the contest 25-15, 25-17, 25-21.
San Clemente (13-7, 2-1) was led by Jess Hunt’s 13 kills. Kyler Presho added 11, and Keenan Cleaver recorded nine. Kian Feiner recorded a team-high 41 assists in the win.
San Clemente will have had an entire week to wait for its April 12 match against first-place Tesoro. Tesoro (16-6, 3-0) is in the midst of a turnaround season and sit atop the league standings. The Titans finished last in the South Coast League last season.
