Rocklin High basketball star Brendan Lane was among several Thunder athletes to sign national letters of intent Wednesday. Wednesday was the first day that seniors could officially commit to a college. Lane, a 6-foot-10 forward/ center, accepted a scholarship to play hoops at UCLA. Two Thunder volleyball stars, outside hitters Janelle Currey and Hannah Anderson, also signed Wednesday. Joining them was Rocklin baseball and basketball star Pat Stover and his sister, Thunder swimming star Katie Stover. Anderson has accepted an offer to play volleyball for Liberty University in Virginia while Currey will join two former Rocklin teammates at Sacramento State University. Anderson is going on her official visit this weekend where she will take in her first match at Virginia. “I’m so excited,” said Currey, who will join former teammates Kelsey Elston and Shannon Wilson at Sac State. “I had my official visit two weeks ago and hung out with the team.” Pat Stover accepted a scholarship to play baseball at Santa Clara University. Stover was the MVP of the Sierra Foothill League for baseball last year. He also helped the basketball team claim a section title a year ago. Katie Stover, also a senior, signed her letter of intent to swim for Santa Barbara.
