SNOHOMISH – Snohomish High School senior Kirsten Brockman, an all-Western Conference 4A forward who helped her team to a third-place finish in the Class 4A high school girls basketball state tournament, made a verbal commitment Wednesday to attend the University of Washington on a basketball scholarship.

Brockman, who will miss the 2000-2001 high school season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee, said she will sign an NCAA letter of commitment on Nov. 8 during the fall early-signing period.

Brockman, who will have surgery Oct. 27 to repair her damaged knee, said she was grateful the Huskies stood by her despite the injury she suffered during a Sept. 6 workout.

“I feel really good about it,” Brockman said. “It’s very encouraging that they believe in me, that I will make a full recovery.”

Brockman said she wanted to remain close to home so she would have the opportunity to watch her younger brothers, who are currently in the eighth and ninth grades, play high school basketball.

She’ll join several other Wesco graduates on the UW roster, including Arlington senior Kayla Burt and Meadowdale senior Kristen O’Neill, who earlier voiced commitments to the Huskies. O’Neill’s older sister, Kellie, is also a member of the UW varsity.
