Fairmont Prep girls basketball players Kayla Ishibashi, AnLing Su Vera commit to colleges

Fairmont Prep senior guards Kayla Ishibashi and AnLing Su Vera have committed to strong, Division III college programs, Huskies girls basketball coach Sara Brown said.

Ishibashi, a 5-foot-6 shooting guard, has pledged to Claremont-Mudd-Scripps while Su Vera, a 5-foot-3 point guard, has selected Division III powerhouse Amherst College in Massachusetts.

Amherst College reached the Division III Sweet 16 in March but the tournament was canceled because of the pandemic. The Mammoths also reached the Sweet 16 the previous season and captured back-to-back national titles in 2017-18 with 33-0 records.

Ishibashi joins former Oxford Academy standout forward Austyn Masuno at Division III Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, a regular contender in the SCIAC now led by second-year coach Chanel Murchison.

Su Vera and Ishibashi helped Fairmont Prep finish as the CIF Southern Section Division 2AA runner-up to league rival Orangewood Academy last season and reach the first round of the CIF State Division 1 SoCal regionals.
