College Signings : USIU Lands McCaughey, 6-10 Capistrano Valley Center

Steve McCaughey, a 6-foot-10 center for the Capistrano Valley High School basketball team, has signed a letter of intent to attend United States International University in San Diego in the fall, Capistrano Valley Coach Mark Thornton said Friday.

McCaughey averaged seven points and seven rebounds a game as Capistrano Valley went 24-5 and won the Southern Section 5-A championship. He was a three-year varsity player for the Cougars. McCaughey picked USIU over Cal State Northridge.

Lance Sabella, a third baseman at Mission Viejo, has signed a letter of intent to attend Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Mission Viejo Coach Ron Drake said.

Sabella, a two-year starter who is batting .333 with nine RBIs and five doubles, chose Cal Poly over the University of the Pacific.

Kelly Cook, a pitcher at Brea-Olinda High School, has committed to attend Cal Poly Pomona on a softball scholarship, Brea Coach Sharon Caperton said.

Cook, an all-Southern Section 3-A selection as a junior, has helped lead Brea (13-5, 5-1) to first place in the Orange League.

This year she is 13-4 with an 0.42 earned run average. She has struck out 188 of 488 batters and allowed eight earned runs.

Summer Sieg, girls' volleyball player of the year in the Pacific Coast League, said Friday she has signed a letter of intent to play at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Sieg, an outside hitter who also considered both the University of Virginia and William and Mary, helped lead Laguna Beach to the Pacific Coast League championship and the Southern Section 5-A semifinals, where it lost to eventual state champion, Irvine.
