Washington recruits named to All-American teams

Two University of Washington volleyball recruits--setter Katy Beals of Austin, TX and middle blocker Melanie Wade of Palo Alto--were today named first team high school All-Americans. A third recruit--middle blocker Lianna Sybeldon of Shingle Springs, CA--was named a second team All-American.

Those honors place Washington's recruiting class near the top of the nation for the second year in a row. Last year, the Huskies class included high school All-Americans Summer Ross and Krista Vansant; Vansant was national player of the year. Both Ross and Vansant have been starters all season for Washington this year.

Katy Beals' Lake Travis High School teammate, Amy Neal, is also on the first team, and will attend Texas. Lake Travis High--the defending Texas 4A champion--has reached the state Final Four once again this season.

Kameron McLain, an outside hitter from Eastside Catholic High School, was named to the Honorable Mention team. McLain will attend Boston College.

Washington's recruiting class will likely be rated among the top five this season. A summary of the high school All-Americans on today's list, for selected schools:
