Chloe Newton from Hermosa Beach, California, has committed to play beach volleyball in college at the University of Washington. Newton plays for Mira Costa High School in Manhattan Beach.

The 5’6″ high school senior played freshman and JV volleyball in her first two years of high school before shifting her focus to the beach. She currently sits 250th nationally in usabeachranking.org’s rankings, earned largely from a 37th-place finish at the USA Volleyball Girls’ Level AA High Performance Hermosa tournament last July.

Newton, playing with partner Ryan D’Angelo, took a bronze medal at the 2013 AAU National Championship tournament in the 14 & under division.

Newton projects to be primarily a defender at the collegiate level.

Washington’s 2017 beach season won’t start until April 1st when they play Portland. The Huskies graduate their best defender Cassie Strickland at the end of the 2017 season. Strickland, who played for 4 years for the Washington indoor team, made her NCAA beach debut last season and earned All-Pac-12 Second Team honors. Previously, she was named the 2015 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award winner indoors.

Below, check out a highlight video of Newton on the beach from 2014.
