Hart senior soccer player Hailey Jenkins has committed to play soccer at the University of California, Davis, Jenkins confirmed to The Signal.

She will attend the school on a partial athletic scholarship.

Also from Hart soccer, senior McKinley Kane signed her National Letter of Intent with The Master’s College on Nov. 14 along with two Hart senior volleyball players, Amy King and Sydney Hamilton.

King, an All-Foothill League second-team selection, and Hamilton will join a TMC women’s volleyball team which just capped off its most successful season in school history after advancing to the final 16 of the NAIA Championships.

It was the team’s first appearance at the tournament.

As for Jenkins, a returning All-SCV first-team defender, she was instrumental in Hart’s second-place Foothill League finish in 2011, and is expected to anchor this year’s defense from the centerback position.

The senior, who plays club soccer for Real SoCal, was first seen by UC Davis at Surf Cup, a club soccer tournament, and was contacted less than a day later.

Originally, other schools were ahead of UC Davis on Jenkins list of preferred schools, but a trip to the campus changed her mind.

“It wasn’t my first option, but they saw me play and I went out for a visit and I really liked the school,” Jenkins said.

“They’re graduating some defenders, and that’s the position I play. So hopefully I’ll be playing my freshman year, and I’ll work hard for my position.”

Seddon designated for assignment

Canyon High graduate and Cleveland Indians pitcher Chris Seddon was designated for assignment on Friday, the team announced.

This came on the same day Cleveland claimed first baseman Mike McDade off waivers, which meant the team needed to make room on its 40-man roster.

For Seddon, it means he is now a free agent and he’ll either be sent down to the minor leagues or picked up by another team in the coming days.

After being called up to the Major Leagues from Triple-A Columbus in August, Seddon made the most of his opportunity and put together his career-best year at the MLB level, posting a 3.67 ERA and a 1-1 record in 34 1/3 innings pitched.

He made 17 appearances for the Indians late in the season, including
two starts.

It was the 28-year-old’s third time playing in the big leagues with his third different team after stretches with the Florida Marlins in 2007 and stint three years later with the Seattle Mariners.
