The Sage Hill School boys’ and girls’ athletic programs have been placed on probation for two years after the CIF Southern Section discovered a lack of administrative oversight last spring involving the boys’ volleyball team. Boys’ Athletic Director J.R. Tolver said the boys’ volleyball program’s decision to withdraw from the CIF Southern California Division III Regional Championship opening-round match on June 2 at Francis Parker of San Diego forced the section to put Sage Hill on probation.

HUNTINGTON BEACH ? Estancia's Scott Braunsdorf qualified for the CIF Southern Section individual tournament for the fourth consecutive year by reaching the Golden West League singles final Tuesday. The doubles team of Ely Zaidler and Danny O'Neil also advanced, the first Eagles to join Braunsdorf at the CIF tournament in four years. Braunsdorf defeated teammate Brad Fisher in a three-set semifinal before losing to Orange's Steve Johnson in the championship. Fisher defeated Saddleback's Oscar Ortega in the third-place match.

Rome wasn't built in a day, and the CIF Southern Section girls' water polo Masters Tournament won't be built in a weekend. That much was clear to players, coaches and fans alike after the inaugural event, held last weekend at Irvine High. "It's just something that's in its infancy," Corona del Mar Coach Aaron Chaney said. "I mean, the Super Bowl wasn't as great 40 years ago as it is today." The premise for the Masters Tournament is promising enough. Sixteen teams, playing for the right to be called the CIF Southern Section champions.

Sage Hill School's boys basketball team jumped to an 18-2 lead at the end of one quarter and kept the heat on, beating visiting Oxford Academy, 49-24, Thursday, to secure a third-place finish in league. The win guarantees the Lightning a spot in the CIF Southern Section Division IV-A Playoffs. Scott Cho (eight points, nine rebounds, three blocked shots) had his best game of the year, according to Sage Hill Coach Steve Keith. Michael Fitzhugh scored a game-high 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting and made all three of his free throws.

At the end of a historic season in late December, reporters asked Coach Scott Meyer about next year. Can his football team repeat a perfect season? The Sea Kings had just beaten Atherton Sacred Heart Prep, 27-15, in the CIF State Division III Bowl Game to become the first team in the state to produce a 16-0 season. Meyer, standing inside the tunnel at the StubHub Center in Carson, tried not to look ahead. "We're not going to think about that for a little while," Meyer said back then, before going into the number of starters expected to return, 10 on defense and five on offense, and the challenging nonleague schedule next season.

Fans began to chant, "Si se puede!" and the Estancia High boys' soccer team never lost hope. The Eagles trailed by one late in the semifinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoffs and they kept fighting. Time was running out on the Eagles against Baldwin Park on Tuesday. Their coach, Robert Castellano, raced to the fence to track down a ball with 5 minutes left, trying to save time to give the Eagles another chance to tie the match. He then turned to the home crowd, the biggest to see his team play during his five seasons in charge.

LOS ANGELES - Don't bring up the last time the Estancia High boys' soccer team won the CIF Southern Section title to Robert Castellano. He begrudgingly will thank you for reminding him. That special season 14 years ago can be a sensitive issue for him at times. He missed being a part of that section championship team because he graduated the year before the school won it all. Castellano never played for a section title, but he is now one win away from coaching the Eagles in one. As the coach, Castellano is in full control, always composed.

In the spring, Corona del Mar High's Kelly Tam played on the same girls' club basketball team with the starters on the San Juan Hills basketball team. "I know how they play," Tam said. Tam reminded her club teammates how dangerous she can be with the ball in her hands. In the final minute of the quarterfinals of the CIF Southern Section Division 3AA playoffs, the host Sea Kings went to Tam with the game on the line on Wednesday. She hadn't made a basket all night. She wasn't even CdM's first option.

Just so her teachers know, a dog didn't eat Claire Novotny's homework. But in the event that the Sage Hill School sophomore comes up a little short in the classroom on Thursday, some would suggest she has an iron-clad alibi. Novotny fired in a booming shot from 31 yards out into the upper corner of the net to lift the Lightning girls' soccer team to a 1-0 overtime victory over visiting Paloma Valley in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 5 playoffs on Wednesday.

ANAHEIM - When the Corona del Mar High boys' soccer team showed up at Anaheim, the uneven field, with patches of grass, looked like the one the Sea Kings play on at home. Anaheim Coach Joe Chavez learned his team wasn't the only one in Orange County that plays on a poor field. "We're used to this," CdM Coach George Larsen told Chavez, who said he began to think, "Oh gosh! It might play in their favor. " While the Sea Kings played on the road in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 3 playoffs on Tuesday, they were 3 minutes away from getting the type of result they do at home.

SANTA ANA - For the second straight season, the Newport Harbor High boys' basketball team faced one of the top two seeds early in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Last season in Division 2A, the Sailors played host to No. 1 Westlake in the second round and lost by nine points. They opened the Division 2AA playoffs at No. 2 Foothill on Friday and they did not do as well, losing 82-55. "We got to talk to our guys about having a better regular season," said Newport Harbor Coach Bob Torribio, whose team finished 14-14 overall for the second season in a row. "We got to take care of some business early on so we don't have to play these tough teams early on [in the postseason]

The Sea Kings (23-4) are the highest seeded team of the three Newport-Mesa squads that are in the CIF Southern Section playoffs.

Just the other day, Jeff Brinkley summed up coaching high school football to a new Toby Keith song. The song titled "Hard Way To Make An Easy Living" aptly fits his job at Newport Harbor High. "People look at [coaching] and think, 'What an enjoyable [job],' and it is enjoyable, but it's a lot of hard work," says Brinkley, sitting in his office while he and his assistants prepare to head out to the practice field on Wednesday afternoon. "These guys put in a lot of hours and they're away from their families.

Countless kids in Newport Beach have decided to attend a private school to play sports. Luke Napolitano was one of those kids. Napolitano had a big right arm. He took it to JSerra to use it on a football field and on a mound. The second never happened. During his freshman year, he went through a lot off the field. Leaving home at 6 a.m. to get to the school in San Juan Capistrano and then coming home after practice at 7 p.m. grew tiring. None of it felt worth it to Napolitano.
