Wilkey verbals to UCLA

Newport Harbor High senior girls' water polo goalie Sarah Wilkey has verbally committed to play at UCLA, she said Friday night.

Wilkey is in her first year as starter for the Sailors (2-0), after the graduation of Krissy Burger. Wilkey had eight saves Friday in the Sailors' 10-6 nonleague victory over Foothill.

She's committing to a good program in UCLA. The Bruin women finished fifth in the country last spring and before that had won five straight NCAA titles.

"It has everything I'm looking for in a college," Wilkey said. "I love the team, the location, the academics, everything."
