New Cal coach Sonny Dykes added two more oral commitments, including Sione Sina, a highly regarded 6-foot-4, 250-pound outside linebacker from College of San Mateo.

Also headed to Cal is Kyle Kragen, a 6-1, 225-pounder from Diablo Valley College, who played both defensive end and linebacker. He attended high school at San Ramon Valley-Danville and is the son of Greg Kragen, a former Pro Bowl defensive end for the Denver Broncos.

Former Cal star Lauren Boyle wrapped up the FINA World Championships with her third appearance in an event final when she finished eighth in the 200-meter freestyle on Sunday in Istanbul, Turkey. The two-time Olympian put together a string of fine performances -- including winning the 800-meter freestyle and setting three New Zealand national records -- at the five-day meet.

Boyle posted a New Zealand record in the 200-freestyle heats with a time of 1:55.40 before posting a time of 1:57.27 in the final. Last Thursday, she won the 800 free with a time of 8:08.62 that surpassed her own previous New Zealand record. In the 400 free, Boyle again broke one of her own national records with a time of 4:01.24 to take bronze.

"I am really excited again," Boyle told New Zealand Swimming after the meet. "I am really happy with how things have gone over the last five days. I am still a fair way off world records, so it's possible to improve more."

  • Cal State East Bay made up a 23-point gap on the final day of the UNLV Winter Invitational to finish in fourth place and as the top Division II squad at the meet Monday. .
