Six players with Bay Area ties, including Santa Clara junior Julie Johnston, have been invited to training camp by new U.S. women's national soccer coach Tom Sermanni.
Cal graduate Alex Morgan is returning to lead the Olympic champions with former Stanford players Nicole Barnhart, Rachel Buehler and Kelley O'Hara. Former Stanford star Christen Press is getting a chance to make her senior national team debut.
Sermanni, who has replaced Pia Sunhage in October, called in 29 players in preparation for exhibitions next month against Scotland. Also invited to camp is Stanford commit Jane Campbell, at 17 the youngest goalkeeper called up since 18-year-old Hope Solo in 1999.
San Jose selected Stanford senior target forward Adam Jahn on Tuesday in the first round of the MLS Supplemental Draft. Jahn expects to join the Quakes in their preseason camp Wednesday.
The Quakes, who did not have a pick in the second round, selected midfielder/forward Colin Mitchell of San Francisco (Oregon State) and defender Peter McGlynn (UC Santa Barbara) in the third and fourth rounds.
The SaberCats have been assigned wide receiver Corbin Louks, a former San Ramon Valley High quarterback, on a one-year contract.
Louks most recently spent time on the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad. He played two seasons at the University of Nevada.
Brian Cook and Steven Irvin had 14 kills apiece to lead Stanford to a 27-25, 19-25, 25-14, 25-12 victory over UCLA in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball at Maples Pavilion.
Stanford (5-2, 2-2) rebounded from two losses over the weekend -- to USC and Pepperdine -- to defeat the No. 4 Bruins (6-4, 2-2), who share the same ranking with the Cardinal in the AVCA Coaches' poll.
